Problem with Creation of a TUSC Account[edit]

Hello,
I want to use some of the tools, like the old version filemover, but my problem is, that I can not create an account. Like you can see here, I tried it more than once, and I got the answer "Account creation succesful", but when I tried to log in, I get the answer "login failed". Can you help me with this? Greetings, Luke081515 (talk) 15:23, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

@Magnus Manske: if you could assist with this. Face-smile.svg Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 15:52, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
TUSC is obsolete. All my tools use the OAuth login. Every tool that uses OAuth has an appropriate link. If you have problems, please give the URL of the tool you try to use. --Magnus Manske (talk) 14:27, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
@Magnus Manske: It's toollabs:magog/oldver.php. --Leyo 14:10, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Does this mean that you are reversing your decision to continue supporting TUSC despite your clear assurances that you would not? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 17:22, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
I haven't touched TUSC; I'll see if it has failed. Meanwhile, I found my geograph uploader doesn't use OAuth, so I'm converting that at the moment. I would strongly suggest you do the same; TUSC has long outlasted its usefulness, and I can't promise to invest much time in maintaining it indefinitely. --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:14, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Update: Just tried logging in to my existing (Commons) account, and creating a new one (en.wp). Both worked fine for me. --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:39, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for having a look at this issue. @Luke081515: Could you please try again? --Leyo 21:18, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, but it do not work. When I'm trying to create an account again, after creation I can't log in. And when I'm try to use the account information, the tool don't let me perform an action. @Magnus Manske: Can you look again, please? Greetings, Luke081515 (talk) 18:27, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
@Luke081515: I wouldn't expect a response from Magnus. He ignores threads if they take more than 10 seconds to deal with.[1][2](third bug report from defunct Toolserver omitted) And as you can see from above, he's even willing to go back on his promises if it means he doesn't have to take another hour doing any work.[3] In fact, I created my most prolific bot for the sole reason that he couldn't be arsed to cleanup after his own.[4](see first paragraph) As far as I'm concerned, his tools have outlived their usefulness. Hopefully I can hack something together to give the community a replacement by a bot maintainer who actually gives a shit about the people who use his product.
Sorry for being blunt, but it's high time that I call this spade out for being a spade. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:45, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

I try it again, it works now. The only thing, that I changed was, that I try to create this account with the target commons. Before T tried it with the target dewiki (german wikipedia), there it don't work. Thank you, for your help. Greetings, Luke081515 (talk) 20:58, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

WTS question[edit]

Hi Magog. I noticed that http://tools.wmflabs.org/magog/commons_images-wts.wikivoyage.htm has not been updated since 2015-04-26. Is it on pause? --MGA73 (talk) 20:25, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

@C.Jonel: hay que tener mucha experiencia con los archivos y el copyright antes de tener una cuenta.

OgreBot[edit]

Hi there. Your bot keeps adding me to the uploads by new users list. I understand it's automatically generated, but I've been on Wikipedia four years longer than you, I'm a vastly more accomplished photographer than almost anybody else on that page, and I'm quite clearly not a new user. Scrolling through it I see four competent photographers and perhaps a dozen usable images in total, and a tonne of rubbish from people whose removal from the face of the Earth wouldn't hurt the Wikimedia project one iota.

There's an implication that you're treating my work as a commodity when clearly I'm putting a tonne of effort into it, and there's an implication that users who have mass-posted more than 150 files are more valuable than the much smaller pool of competent photographers. Wikipedia has always had problem with persistent but incompetent users, useless people who amass tens of thousands of useless edits because they're sitting at their computer all day with nothing else to do. DeviantArt has the same problem. There's no quality filter, which means that the good people get lumped in with the bad. It's as if you're deliberately trying to attract them. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 20:16, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Ashley Pomeroy. I noticed your comment here. You are right! The bot does not know how to judge quality. The bot can only count the number of edits. It would be nice if we could teach a bot to judge quality. Until that happens we need humans to judge. Copyright questions are really complex and most of the problematic files are uploaded by users with a few edits on Commons. For example a photographer could take a really good photo but if it is a derivative work then we can't keep it unless copyright has expired or if the copyrighted object is de minimis. We have seen examples of users with thousands of edits on WIkipedia and even admins on Wikipedia that uploaded files to Commons that had to be deleted. That is why we have the bot to help human users to notice uploads by users with only a few edits. Our work here would be hard without the bot to help us. --MGA73 (talk) 08:12, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
@Ashley Pomeroy: to echo MGA73's point, the bot is incapable of telling quality. We've had users who have been around for nearly a decade that show really bad quality in their uploads, to the extent that the files need to be deleted. The bot cannot tell one from another.
And MGA73 is correct; Commons has seen a significant decline in userbase of experienced editors while a significant increase has occurred in the number of uploads. To make matters worse, the quality of said uploads has significant decreased at the same time (the reasons are complicated, and have to do with mobile technology and macroeconomic factors in technology). Regardless, the result is that we have just a few users who are able to address problematic uploads. The bots save us precious time and are literally our last line of defense against Commons turning into a MySpace version 2.
Were there a technical way for the bot to judge quality vs. quantity, it absolutely would do so. But there is not; we must rely on human pair of eyes. This is addressed at the FAQ listed at the top of the page: User:OgreBot/Uploads by new users/FAQ.
Let me know if you have any other concerns. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 16:54, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

A new wrinkle[edit]

A user with whom there have been prior problems made a POV edit to one of my photos today, see [6]. He labeled an historic Wiyot shrine (much like a European Cathedral), the place where the world renewal ceremonies are held - as an "archaeology site". That would be like saying the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery is an archaeology site because there's dead bodies there somewhere. Or perhaps that Washington's home at Mount Vernon, or Gettysburg field are available for handy shovel work. Of course, any artifacts from Tuluwat in private collections and in museums were looted and are legally required to be returned. I think this POV edit was way out of line and re-edited the page to eliminate it while keeping the fancy coding added to some parts of it. Could you perhaps review the actions? I do not want our native resources labeled to provide any assistance to pot-hunters and grave-robbers which is not uncommon, unfortunately. When I went to say something to the POV editor, I saw there were problems before and am asking for your help with this. Thank you. Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:29, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

OgreBot, no galleries for 2015-05-10?[edit]

Hello Magog, today i'm missing the daily updates by your wonderful bot on my WLE subpages. In principle OgreBot seems to be active (for User:OgreBot/Uploads by new users/…) so i don't know if there is a special technical problem or if they will be added only a bit later. For the case you did not notice yet, that other gallery updates are missing, i leave you this note. Maybe you can have a look into it? Many thanks! Holger1959 (talk) 07:34, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Users with copuvio and the filenames[edit]

Hello, I noticed you added a topic about filenames to the user Nasirova K and wanted to inform you that such filenames are created because the images are downloaded from the social network VK (this social network creates random filenames), and it seems that all the uploads of this user have copyvio (like, File:F2VxVo-XlO0.jpg, File:LU4SK-rZNgY.jpg) But for some reason Google image search doesn't find them.

Anyway, if you meet some filenames like that in the future, a big possibility is that they are downloaded from VK. --Helixitta (talk) 13:45, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Shrek[edit]

Cher Dresseur de Magog the ogre,
Ton robot est aussi mal élevé que Shrek!
Quand dans la description d’un de mes fichiers on rencontre un {{LangSwitch= …, ça veut dire je me suis donné la peine d’écrire laborieusement une description dans les trois langues pour lesquelles j’ai quelques notions.
Tu conviendras avec moi qu’il soit bien naturel que la date soit codée avec un template: qui, si j’en crois la documentation, est fait pour que la date soit correctement affichée en fonction du tag de langue du navigateur.
Précaution superfétatoire tous les derniers fichiers commencent par un qui paraît-il devrait détourner ton robot de procéder à quelque changement que ce soit … Las, cet ogre est un ogre affamé ! Il mange quand même mes m’obligeant à revenir dessus.
C’est la deuxième fois que je fais des remontrances à cet ogre sans que son dresseur arrive à se faire obéir!…

Comme tu dis ne parler pas le français, je vais me risquer à faire une traduction (en.user=1) rien que pour tes yeux !
As you say do not speak the french, I'm going to dare me to do a translation (in .user = 1) for your eyes only

Dear trainer of Magog the ogre,
Your bot is also ill-mannered as Shrek!
When in the description of one of my files is found a {{LangSwitch =..., il mean I gave myself the trouble to laboriously write a description in three languages for which I have some rudiments.
You surely agree with me that it is naturally that the date will be encoded with a template which, so I believe the documentation is done so that the date is displayed correctly depending on the browser's language tag.
Superfluous precaution all my latest files start with a which seems should divert your robot to any change whatsoever... Alas, this ogre is a hungry ogre! He still eats my forcing them me to return it.
This is the second time I am remonstrated to this ogre without that his trainer happens to obey!...

CANCELLAZIONE[edit]

salve, potrei chiederle la motvazione della cancellazione della foto non è un copyviol, se la materia non è adatta a commons allora potrei cambiare con un' altra foto : ) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dezatnav (talk • contribs) 18:26, May 17, 2015‎ (UTC)

@Blackcat: could you please describe to this user in Italian why I nominated it for deletion (Commons:Deletion requests/File:Selfie in Black and White.jpg)? I am trying to think of any educational use for the photo, but I cannot at the moment. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:39, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
Gentile Dezatnav, sono Sergio, un amministratore in lingua italiana su Commons. La faccenda è molto semplice: su Commons accettiamo volentieri contributi liberi forniti direttamente dagli utenti, ma questi devono avere una certa coerenza con le politiche del progetto: non è detto, in poche parole, che su Commons possa stare qualsiasi media che gli utenti vi pubblichino - indipendentemente dal fatto, dato per scontato, che ne detengano i diritti per farlo. Nel tuo caso è difficile trovare un uso divulgativo della foto che tu hai caricato, in quanto non spendibile in qualsivoglia ambito. Ovviamente sì, un'altra foto, purché più rispondente all'ambito divulgativo di Commons, è benvenuta e ti ringraziamo se la pubblichi. Spero che la spiegazione sia sufficiente. Un saluto. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 22:18, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
(For Magog: what follows is the English translation of what I just wrote: Dear Dezatnav, here's Sergio, an Italian-speaking administrator on Commons. The issue is simple: Commons warmly welcomes users' free media, which must adhere to the Project's policies though: said shortly, not necessarily a media can stay here just because it has been released with a legitimate licence. In your case is very hard to find any educational scope to the photograph you just uploaded. Of course another photograph, provided it's in scope, is welcome and we would thank you for that. Hope that I was clear enough. Best regards.

Hi Magog the Ogre, I regret to see you leaving and hope very much that you change your mind. Apparently you were quite upset about a thread at COM:AN/U. Such things happen.

@Everyone: Yikes. I'm sorry I acted more like a toddler and diva than an adult with responsibility over the past 24 hours. Nothing else to say or do at this point (IRL anger management???).

I do not plan to talk about any sort of remediation/rights removal/etc. until my block has expired.

Daily gallery updater has failed on User:Magog the Ogre/PD ineligible[edit]

Hello. This message is to inform you that a daily gallery in your userspace, User:Magog the Ogre/PD ineligible, has failed. Due to software limitations, the bot has a hard upper-limit of 1500 files per gallery, while your gallery had 1718 images.

This usually happens because a gallery is too broad, encompassing too many subcategories. Please review the logs here and request that a subcategory be excluded, or narrow your category choice(s).

Please make your request for removal within 4 days, or your gallery will be subject to removal.

Notable uploads not updating[edit]

Please also check why User:OgreBot/Notable uploads hasn't been updating for a few days. It is apparently possible to force updates of galleries by using toollabs:magog/UpdateUploadReport.php. --Stefan4 (talk) 15:08, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

@Stefan4: not sure what happened - the process started but never logged anything. I hope it was just a server hiccup. It's running fine now. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:39, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
