The poster chanter plus fort que la mer has been deleted from the article. But Éric Ruel, the right owner has sent a waiver, a message to for yhe use of this image. Home you haven't see it. Another poster has been accepted by wiki commons. Why not this one?

thank you 2avenue —Preceding unsigned comment added by 2avenue (talk • contribs) 13:54, March 24, 2014‎ (UTC)

I've left a note asking for a French-speaker to handle the ticket ASAP. It looks to me like the French OTRS queue is ridiculously backlogged, which explains the delay. FYI, for the future, it's standard practice to leave a message on the bottom of someone's talk page, not the top. That's why I didn't respond until today - I didn't see it.

Why do you pull down |Wikisource=:s:fr:Livre:{{PAGENAME}} on the uploaded books. It is not necessary and it is a source of mistakes for the uploader when he uploads a new volume ? Pibewiki (talk) 17:36, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Which page are you talking about? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:51, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
i.e. File:Encyclopédie moderne - 1823, T01.djvu Thanks for your attention Pibewiki (talk) 19:37, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Because {{PAGENAME}} always shows as Encyclopédie moderne - 1823, T01.djvu. If you are uploading a new volume, you should use CommonsHelper. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 21:58, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry ; it is just a note about the bot. If the bot does't go on the page, {{PAGENAME}} will stay on the page and i'll not have to verify. The model is right. If the bot replace {{PAGENAME}} by the real name, the model can't change any more and cannot be used for an other file ; I'll have to verify and replace each time. Now, the function of the bot is to make the work more easy and not more complicated. You can have a look to the exemple File:Encyclopédie moderne - 1823, T01.djvu. Best regards Pibewiki (talk) 18:21, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Can't you just use the old version of the page? I'd really prefer not to have to change this functionality if at all possible. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 20:04, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

OK That's the right solution. Thanks. Pibewiki (talk) 11:48, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Category move[edit]

Hey, Magog, I need your help with a move - is there a way to move Category:Execution of Nazis to Category:Executions of Nazis?Hoops gza (talk) 02:57, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

In this case it's easier just to do it by hand because there are only a few items in the category. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:06, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks much!Hoops gza (talk) 14:18, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

More Paul Easter[edit]

Would you mind blocking User:SCREEN GEL 7 and deleting the (usual) Paul Easter upload? Thanks, NawlinWiki (talk) 20:28, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

✓ Done - IMO you can mark those as {{speedy}}; no need to plug up DR with obvious deletes. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 20:30, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Will do, thanks. NawlinWiki (talk) 20:32, 6 April 2014 (UTC)


Hello Magog the Ogre I have a question, I want to enrich photos about Georgian city of en:Rustavi, as you can see on category (Category:Rustavi) practically there is no cityscapes, meanwhile as during last years the city has changed and its main streets have been restored. But unfortunately I have no my photos, Georgian Wikipedia has FB page, and I am going to ask Georgian Wikipedia users from that page, that if someone has opportunity to take some photos of that city and give us by free license. I am interested if it will be okay? My friend said that it's ok when as source I'll put that person's FB link who gave us those photos. I know there is also OTRS but it's more difficult and not clear for me, if that way is ok, I prefer first one by FB. --g. balaxaZe 16:35, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

@Giorgi Balakhadze: If the person knows how, they should make the photograph public, and state in the description the license on the file. Otherwise, they can send an email to OTRS. The instructions don't exist in Georgian, but they do in Russian, which many Georgians can read IIRC: Commons:OTRS/ru (aside: you're welcome to translate it into Georgian for your compatriots).

Category:Pages using Information template with incorrect parameter[edit]

Hi Magog the Ogre. Could you please send your bot through this category to do some cleanup work? I guess it could reduce the numbers of files that require manual fixes by quite a bit. --Leyo 23:19, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

I am out of town. I will do so when I return. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:20, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

OK, there is no particular hurry. --Leyo 23:27, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I noticed you have set up User:MiszaBot to archive your talk page. Unfortunately, the bot has stopped working, and given how its operator is inactive, it is unclear when/if this will fixed. For the time being, I have volunteered to operate a MiszaBot clone (running the exact same code). With that said, your input would be appreciated at Commons:Bots/Requests/ArchiveBot 1.
