Aloha! Quick question: Could you add automatic Source = insertion if the field is missing in the info template? Or semi-auto per button? I come across that problem quite often. Thanks for the tool! I really love it! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 02:53, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

@Hedwig in Washington: Yes. I will add it to the cleanup_ts version in the next few days. I will mark it as a minor edit so the bot will not add the field unless it was already making another edit. You will be able to make minor edits though. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:18, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Great! Thanks! :) --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 04:17, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
@Hedwig in Washington: did you care where in the template I add the source parameter? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:08, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
No, not really. It would be nice to keep the order as in the original template. In the end it doesn't matter. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 08:02, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Doesn't work by hand? --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 03:07, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
Woops, works with cleanup TS, not cleanup JS --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 03:08, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Image removal (Meesha Shafi)[edit]

Hi, you removed the following file : "File:Actress-singer Meesha Shafi and filmmaker Mira Nair at the opening night screening of The Reluctant Fundamentalist 2012 Doha Tribeca Film Festival, November 17, 2012 in Doha, Qatar.jpg" ...citing a copyright violation with a picture posted on another website, however if you look closely you will notice that the two pictures are in fact different and that there were many other people there on the red carpet capturing that very moment, including myself. You will notice that in comparison, my picture is clearer & better composed. Kindly restore to commons and to the Meesha Shafi page it was removed from (Immi2k (talk) 08:37, 5 August 2014 (UTC))

@Immi2k: after examining the pictures extremely closely, I do see the difference. Please accept my apologies. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 21:07, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
@Magog the Ogre: Thank you for looking into this :) any chance you can remove your rather scary looking copyright violation warnings on my commons talk page? Also, can i just go ahead and undo the removal of this picture on Meesha Shafi's page? Immi2k (talk) 00:58, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
@Immi2k: In this case, you can remove the warning yourself, although you probably should keep any discussion for archival reasons. There is no rule against removing talk page warnings when the issue has been resolved. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:10, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

License migration candidates[edit]

I just took a look at your code (cleanup.js) because of the post above and the license migration part made me wonder if you had some code so that your bot could run through Category:License migration candidates and fix some of them? My bot used to work on those but it made too many mistakes because of the code in nowiki and a lot of other wierd combinations of text/code/license etc. --MGA73 (talk) 07:46, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

It will have to go on my bucket list, which is unfortunately pretty long at this point. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:13, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
I've done my first batch tonight. It seems almost all of the images were uploaded by User:Marcus Cyron. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:23, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Uso Comercial[edit]

Hola Magog el Ogro. Estimado amigo te comento que existió una confusión de términos en cuanto las licencias de algunas imágenes, de lo cual hemos analizado la redacción de la licencia y modificado para futuras contribuciones,para el caso de las imágenes que cayeron en la infracción, una ves restablecidas se modificara la licencia para evitar encontrarse sujetas a la ya antes mencionada, así mismo utilizo este medio para notificarte que no existe ningún inconveniente por el autor para ser distribuidas de manera libre.

Agradeciendo tu apoyo - HMPicazo 16:46, August 12, 2014‎ (UTC)

Bueno. He restaurado las imágenes. Pero las marcaré como sin prueba de permiso - la que puedes enviar a la dirrección que he dejado en tu página de usuario. Déjame saber si tienes otras preguntas. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:49, 13 August 2014 (UTC)


Hello! I expected here new prictures according to my request. But nothing happend. Did I make a mistake? What's the problem? --Wikiwal (talk) 11:58, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

@Wikiwal: which image isn't appearing, and should have? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:09, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi, I expeced all new organ images that belong to the parent category Category:Pipe organs in Germany, like File:Pfungstadt Orgel.jpg, File:Midlum Orgel (2).jpg, File:Lindenstruth ev Kirche Prospekt.jpg and many othes. Thanx, --Wikiwal (talk) 08:41, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
@Wikiwal: I fixed it.[1] Sorry about the inconvenience. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:26, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! Best wishes, --Wikiwal (talk) 07:23, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Problem with file[edit]

I Never Cry suggested I contact you about the file we spoke of, File:Alma Taylor Life 1.jpg . I have enough information to justify the photo as PS-US-1923-abroad, but that doesn't make it OK here at Commons. If I send this for speedy delete, would you consider restoring the file at en:WP and letting me know so I can fur and license it as PD-US-1923-abroad? Thanks! We hope (talk) 19:21, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

I restored it. Please consider nominating it for deletion rather than marking it for speedy; it may be public domain in the UK as well. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:33, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
This was originally taken for en:Cecil Hepworth's UK film company. The first instance I found with proper attribution was here, in a 1921 French magazine. No idea who took the photo--just that the person worked for Hepworth. Am not wanting to be rid of the photo, but thought that it only met the conditions of PD-US-abroad and had to leave Commons.
