"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)


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)

Hey, DaB. Mit welchem Hintergrund sammelst du die Keys und in welcher Form werden diese veröffentlicht? --McZusatz (talk) 12:29, 17 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: 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: )
  3. (Optional) Give a "hotlink" to the jpeg file (ex.: )
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)

question - top {{SVG|any}} files[edit]

I have some question about 2 sites, that you recently edit – one of them is here & second is here. The questions are:

1st: what is the reason of keeping both of them (how about merging, leaving just one)?

2nd: is there possible to add some template, which will automatically be checking:
a. real, actual usage of existed files – you can see that the numbers are different on both of mentioned sites. Let’s take as an example an image from first line – that with aqua background – in one there’s number 2235, on the second – 2774 (I’m skipping now fact, that in one it’s on 1st place of use, on the other – on 2nd), but if you check it – you’ll see only *one* use – actually on it.wikinews.
b. existed files in general, and if some other (not listed) image will have more usage then the last of them – then will be automatically replaced? 09:51, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

(aw 1st) What does 'both' refer to? In case it refers to the gif file and the png file, I did not keep both. The gif file now redirects to the PNG file.
(aw 2nd) There is no template that will cause 'automatic replacement'. However we have {{PNG}}, {{should be svg}} and {{duplicate}}. --McZusatz (talk) 10:10, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
ad. 1: no - sites are duplicated (and beeing updated separately)
ad. 2: according to variability in the number of use wouldn't be better if there will left:
  • 2a. flag & number of use only (excluding exact list on the specific wikis)
  • 2b. flag & just name of the file below (excluding any given (& not actual) number of uses)
Thanks for clarification. You are right: There is no reason to keep both of them. Thus only one should be kept and updated regularly. As far as I know there is no template which returns the number of globalusages. So we'd have to do regular database queries (user:dispenser is the expert for such database queries). If Dispenser does not respond here within seven days, I may try to copy paste some code to create such query. Otherwise feel free to ask him on his talk page. --McZusatz (talk) 13:40, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
@ sorry for the delay. Finally I have updated Top 200 flag images that should use vector graphics. Do you like it? --McZusatz (talk) 13:54, 19 January 2014 (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.

Moving comments around[edit]

Hi, please do not move comments around, as your bot did with this edit - the positioning may be important. In this case, it explains exactly why a particular category is present, and if the comment is moved to before the categories, it becomes meaningless. --Redrose64 (talk; at English Wikipedia) 20:41, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Due to many editors using HotCat, it is not visible in most cases anyway. I am not sure but it could be added to the description so it is visible to all? Apart from that I will try to fix it if it is feasible. --McZusatz (talk) 23:07, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Wenn dein Bot so etwas macht, könnte er dann eventuell in die Zusammenfassungszeile nicht nur "Internationalisation" schreiben? Wie man im Abschnitt über diesem sieht, kann so etwas durchaus relevant sein und eventuell teilrevertiert werden müssen. darkweasel94 09:23, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Wie oben erwaehnt, werde ich mir demnaechst Gedanken machen einen solchen Fall (der mit den kommentaren) abzufangen. Allerdings kann ich hier nicht erkennen, dass der von dir verlinkte diff irgendwelche Probleme mit sich bringen koennte. --McZusatz (talk) 09:36, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
Der konkrete eh nicht, aber es ist trotzdem meines Erachtens gut, wenn der Bot genau in die Zusammenfassungszeile hineinschreibt, was er alles gemacht hat, ansonsten ignoriert man das womöglich und findet solche Fehler nicht. Es ist jetzt nicht die erste Priorität, aber wäre halt gut. darkweasel94 09:40, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

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 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."

New Panoramio Category of Images Needing Human Review[edit]

This new Panoramio Category of Images needing human Review has one small problem.

The Panoramio Human review doesn't appear here when someone then clicks on the Maintenance Links under License the link for picasa images needing human review. So, people don't know it exists and no one will mark it. It should not be hidden; people should not be forced to then click on 'Panoramio files needing review' like this here to even see this new partly hidden category.

I don't know if you can solve this display problem. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 04:52, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

PS: As an aside, this, this and this category is so new that it has no description. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 05:03, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for my late reply. It seems the issues were already fixed. --McZusatz (talk) 13:28, 20 April 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...
