"Upload gleicher Name" bug - wahl bitte![edit]

Hallo McZusatz,

Können sie vielleicht für diesen Bug "wahlen"? Das kann man hier machen. Danke! --Slashme (talk) 15:47, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Ich habe mich in die Bugliste eingetragen und einen Kommentar verfasst. Wählen werde ich dann nach der Antwort. --McZusatz (talk) 17:24, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
Ein Patch ist schon hochgeladen, bis der gemerged wird (wenn überhaupt), kann es noch dauern, denke ich. --McZusatz (talk) 18:54, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

License Review[edit]

If you have some time, please try to mark some images in the license review category above. Admin Morning Sunshine has been away since April 5 and I mark mostly flickr images and have my own job too. So, this category has grown, I notice. If not, please ask other active Admins to mark some images in this category with 400+ images. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 23:03, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

PGP-Key[edit]

Hallo McZusatz,
ich bin gerade dabei die PGP-Keys der Wikipedianer zu sammeln. Laut deiner Benutzerseite verfügst du über einen Key, könntest du mir die ID zukommen lassen? Vielen Dank im Voraus. --DaB. (talk) 20:44, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Could you help me with CNX[edit]

One of the images at Category:CNX you tagged and said it needed the full URL. As it is a book, is there any way I can just cite that such as through: http://cnx.org/content/col11496/latest/ which is the books online page. I can't find and ISBN.CFCF (talk) 18:23, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

And is there any easy way to edit multiple images at once, it will take hours to go through what I have on an image per image basis opening and closing each one. CFCF (talk) 18:24, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
Got the ISBN: 1-938165-13-5 now just to add it too all of the images in that category?? CFCF (talk) 18:35, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
There are some things we need to take care of:
  1. properly attribute
  2. (Optional) Link to the module the file can be found (example: http://cnx.org/content/m45985/latest/?collection=col11496/latest )
  3. (Optional) Give a "hotlink" to the jpeg file (ex.: http://cnx.org/content/m45985/latest/102_Organ_Systems_of_Body%28Page1%29.jpg )
The fist task can be done by some script, I think... Let's have a closer look at your uploads... --McZusatz (talk) 18:51, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
Do you think you can do the editing by yourself using Help:VisualFileChange.js? Otherwise I need to know when you started to upload the files from "Overview of Anatomy and Physiology" to select them all. --McZusatz (talk) 19:05, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
I'll give it a shot tomorrow when I have time, but this'll make eveything smooth and fast. The help page seems pretty intuitive. Thanks alot for the help! :D CFCF (talk) 19:16, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Crimea Emblem.gif[edit]

Why here file was removed, but not replaced?--Anatoliy (talk) 00:19, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

Replacing badgif with "Convert to PNG" templates[edit]

For cases such as File:Hurleyconference.gif, File:Admiral Frederick J Horne.gif and File:Pimpf 1941.gif, these are photographic images, not diagrams. Surely the template replacement was done by mistake? It would make no sense to mark these images for conversion to PNG; the purpose of the badgif template was to mark the image, so that people know that it was uploaded in an inappropriate format. -- 李博杰  Talk contribs 00:29, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

No, actually I have done this by purpose. I will upload them as PNG shortly due to several reasons:
  1. Better thumbnails. (GIF thubnails are often pixelated due to the 'palette-effect')
  2. Smaller size. (GIF files are larger in general than PNG)
  3. Easier editing. (Someone may want to edit those files. Surely the editor prefers a 24-bit palette over the 8-bit GIF-palette)
  4. It's a lossless conversion and also the transparency, if present, does not get lost. (PNG supports 8-bit transparency in contrast to GIF's 1-bit transparency.)
And in case the source (where the GIF originally came from) is not JPEG nor PNG, it is the only reasonable dealing to convert the GIF to PNG. Even if the source was PNG or JPEG, we do not loose anything by converting the GIF to PNG and then uploading the original version on top of the converted PNG. --McZusatz (talk) 10:20, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

This DR[edit]

If you can, please feel free to state if this image can be kept without COM:OTRS permission. I have no clear views on it, just some doubts whether the flickr owner owns its copyright outright. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:33, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

  • The DR discussion appears to be delete but now there are these other images to consider. Best Wishes, --Leoboudv (talk) 03:15, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Reversed images[edit]

Hi, saw your edits to File:Glider club Svævethy (8174482839).jpg. That was one of several aircraft images that I have noticed have been uploaded in reversed/flipped form. As with the others, the lettering on the aircraft or background (eg OY-XGF) is visibly reversed. I have tried using IrfanView on several images, but it reports that a perfect transformation cannot be achieved. Anyway, the Cleanup image template does not appear to have an explicit parameter for reversed images, so could you perhaps investigate that to cover this topic better, or should we query that on Commons talk:Media for cleanup ? (watching here) MTIA, PeterWD (talk) 10:23, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Just two quick notes:
  1. Feel free to revert my revert while stating the reason in the edit summary. This will help to identify the cause in future.
  2. We have Category:Images to be flopped back but the category name seems clumsy to me and there is no template connected with this category.

File:Ilice di Carrinu.jpg[edit]

Hi McZusatz.

About File:Ilice di Carrinu.jpg you deleted, source was not really flickr. I've original file from author (Piero Giuffrida) and he has assured me that he has sent the permission to permissions-it@wikimedia.org on 14th of march as required.

How can I check the permissions and reload the file? We are both newbies.

Thanks in advance and regards --Kukitto (talk) 09:40, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Hallo McZusatz, er hat mich auch angesprochen, dabei allerdings die Dateinamen verwechselt. Anyway, wenn du nichts dagegen hast, stelle ich beide Dateien (also auch die von dir gelöschte) wieder her und versehe sie mit einem OTRS-pending. --Túrelio (talk) 13:32, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Ok, both files (File:Monti Rossi da nord.jpg as well) are restored and tagged with OTRS received. However, some Italian OTRS agent should answer the ticket instead of myself. --McZusatz (talk) 14:19, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. Anyway now the two files on Flickr are "free to:

   Share — copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format
   Adapt — remix, transform, and build upon the material
   for any purpose, even commercially.
   The licensor cannot revoke these freedoms as long as you follow the license terms."

--Kukitto (talk) 14:38, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. Both files confirmed now via flickr and no OTRS needed anymore. --McZusatz (talk) 08:38, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Was soll der Revert ohne Ansprache? Es handelt sich um eine bearbeitung des vorliegenden Files, und mitnichten um eine Datei mit substantiell anderem Inhalt.Leif Czerny (talk) 07:35, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Eine ausführliche Begründung findest du verlinkt in meiner Zusammenfassungszeile. Kurz gesagt: Eine "uncontroversial color correction" ist deine Bearbeitung nicht. Du hast nicht nur den Gradient entfernt und das S-W-Bild nach deinem Empfinden in einer höheren Auflösung farbig gestaltet, sondern auch gespiegelt. Solche Ueberarbeitungne gehören in eine neue Datei, erst recht, wenn die ursprüngliche zahlreich in Nutzung ist. --McZusatz (talk) 14:53, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
Wenn du meinst. Ich kann ja dem Gleichsetzen von Regel und Regelauslegung nichts abgewinnen. Zahlreiche Nutzung halte ich für eine recht charmanete übertreibung.Leif Czerny (talk) 08:06, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Replacing GIF with PNG images[edit]

Hi McZusatz, I just stumbled upon some GIF images of which you had created a PNG version and then universally replaced the GIF with the PNG. Is there a reason why you are doing this? As far as I can see PNG is not an inherently better file format than GIF. While I think we should not convert PNG to GIF (possible loss of quality) I don't see why we should convert GIF to PNG. There can't be an improvement in image quality and often the PNG version is even larger than the GIF version. Is there some policy regarding conversion of GIF images that I'm not aware of? Thanks and best regards, --ChrisiPK (Talk|Contribs) 04:53, 10 April 2014 (UTC)


GIF thumbnail horrorshow example[edit]

Unfortunately you did not understand the real reason why the GIF thumbnail is problematic, and your edit to "Commons:File types" was inaccurate. The reason the rescaled GIF doesn't look good is because it has a transparent background, and when GIFs with a transparent background are rescaled here, the transparent area eats away at the non-transparent area. If the GIF was changed to be fully opaque, then its thumbnail would look perfectly fine. Until two or three years ago, GIF thumbnailing was in fact better than PNG thumbnailing in some respects... AnonMoos (talk) 06:24, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

File replacements of seals, ...[edit]

With these replacements, it is worthwhile checking the place/... at Wikidata as they have a property for things like a seal, and it needs to be updated manually. :-/ There is a bugzilla request to somehow display that the link exists on the image, however, at this time, it hasn't exited anyone sufficiently to work out how to fix the beast.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:10, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I never heard of it. Please send me some links and I will add it to the growing list of problems when moving files... --McZusatz (talk) 07:41, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Broken(?) video not generating thumbnails[edit]

Namaste, McZusatz.

This file you uploaded is broken: File:Yochai Benkler - On Autonomy, Control and Cultural Experience.ogg

It fails to generate a thumbnail and the servers are throwing error pages when trying to create the image too. The original does not exhibit this behaviour.

edit: the video itself plays just fine however.

What is the difference between the two and, why the need for a dupe? Can't we remove yours, or swap their position so that the old (non-broken one) is the default choice? Regards. Dsprc (talk) 10:20, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the follow up. The uploads are indeed the same and both fail equally in regards to generating thubmnails. (You should try a 122px thumbnail instead of the cached 120px thumbnail)
Nonetheless I have remapped the streams and everything should now work as expected. --McZusatz (talk) 10:36, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Very cool, thanks. :) These 3 seem to be doing the same thing as well:
These are lower priority as they're not really being used anywhere yet so, no biggie. -- Dsprc (talk) 13:58, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

File:Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator SIAD-R rocket sled test video.webm[edit]

Hey there, since there seems to be an issue with transcoding File:Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator SIAD-R rocket sled test video.webm, I went ahead and uploaded File:Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator SIAD-R rocket sled test video.ogv, which appears to be working fine. Since you also uploaded to the webm version, I won't request speedy deletion. If you would delete the webm version, however, I'd appreciate it. Huntster (t @ c) 23:02, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

As of now a direct upload from youtube is not encouraged because VP9 is not yet supported by TimedMediaHandler. Therefore I have uploaded a VP8 transcode created from the h264 version of youtube and I'd propose to keep the WebM version because WebM generally offers better quality than ogv. --McZusatz (talk) 16:14, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
If the original file is now working, then go ahead and kill off the OGV file. I'll not be using WebM again in the future, as it is simply too finicky (and, personally speaking, I see no benefit in quality over OGV). Thanks for your help in all this. Huntster (t @ c) 22:09, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Category use[edit]

As I often do, I'm diffusing Category:Seattle, Washington to more precise categories. Normally, unless Category:Seattle, Washington is actually inaccurate, I try to refine the category. However, I notice you've put a bunch of Flickr images of food, such as File:Jamaica (5201032744).jpg, in that category. Nothing about the location of a photo like this seems particularly significant, and there is presumably no hope of a more precise geographic location, so it doesn't seem useful for it to language forever in Category:Unidentified locations in Seattle, Washington. Do you have any problem if I just remove Category:Seattle, Washington from this and other similar photos? Or do you have another suggestion for refining the category? - Jmabel ! talk 04:54, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

No, in fact I highly encourage your strategy. I did a lot of flickr uploads lately and I am still busy with fixing the categories. Removing the location-category and adding a more appropriate category (which describes the actual content) is far better in those cases. --McZusatz (talk) 15:10, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

I wonder if such pages could be left as they are, because to my mind, it makes even more sense to be able to edit categories as part of the description section? TIA. ⁓ [Gyft Xelz · talk] 19:05, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

If there is nothing to clean up, he also won't touch the categories. Nonetheless, if an edit is done anyway, the categories are grouped at the bottom because it seems to be "consensus" now to place them there. (The file you mentioned above even had them split on two locations which is even more misleading...)
Another observation is that the categories appear at the very bottom in the rendered HTML view, so it actually makes sense to place them in the bottom of the source code as well. And finally considering the broad usage of hotcat, it should not even matter at all. --McZusatz (talk) 20:16, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Category redirects[edit]

Hi there. I requested the speedies because I think it is more useful to keep the category history in one place rather than splitting it up, especially now that categories can be moved in the same way as other pages. Green Giant (talk) 13:54, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

I do not have a strong feeling about this issue, so you are welcome to rollback my edits. --McZusatz (talk) 14:02, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
I don't think I have ever reverted an admins edits, but there is a first time for everything. :) Green Giant (talk) 14:17, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
