Unvollständige DeletionRequests - incomplete DRs[edit]

Sobald der Server wieder richtig arbeitet, werde ich sie verfollständigen. Haben Sie bitte solange Geduld.

I'll complete them when the server works properly. Currently it is a bit slow. Please wait. -- RE rillke questions? 14:21, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

complaint - www.tarkett.com[edit]

'RE. deleted image Tarkett English page (headquarter_nanterre_1998_6_000.jpg' This image is part of the Tarkett Public Media Library. The image has been acquired by Tarkett Group in 1998 as a total global buy out and is fully owned by the Tarkett Group in Nanterre, France -so are all the other over +5.000 photographs in the Tarkett Media Library, which is for public use (journalists, BtoB customers, etc. ) - you may go to www.tarkett.com/group/en/press/media-library and enroll (free of charge) to verify this information. Please undelete the picture and upload it onto the Tarkett Page again. Many thanks in advance, BBPMB

Please do not modify my user page. Instead, use the discussion page. Furthermore, I did not delete anything because I can't. I am not an admin. And I cannot undelete it. For undeletion requests, go to COM:UR. Please add a direct link to the permission page or use OTRS. Thank you. --RE RILLKE Questions? 09:00, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

File:Brie-Comte-Robert_(77)_Église_Saint-Étienne_Vitrail_1.jpg[edit]

Rillke,

navré de ne pouvoir répondre en anglais ou en allemand mais je ne maitrise aucune de ces langues. Je suis plus que consterné par le fait que tu juges opportun de proposer à la suppression un fichier pour le seul motif que tu n'es pas en mesure d'apprécier personnellement la datation de l'œuvre d'art qui a été photographiée. L'honnêteté intellectuelle voudrait que tu aies diligenté un minimum de recherches avant d'avoir recours à ce genre de procédé quelque peu expéditif. En l'espèce, rien n'étaye ta décision si ce n'est une incurie visible en matière d'histoire de l'art. Autant je reste disposé à divulguer les bases élémentaires d'histoire de l'art médiéval à qui me le demanderait, quitte à faire une visite guidée de l'église de Brie-Comte-Robert si tu en éprouves l'envie, autant je trouve cavalier de solliciter la suppression d'un fichier sans avoir demandé un minimum d'explications à la personne qui l'a importé sur Commons. Par ailleurs, une lecture attentive des commentaires afférents à l'image t'aurait appris qu'une datation au XIIIème siècle était proposée. De même, une recherche élémentaire sur le net t'aurait également permis d'appréhender l'époque de réalisation de l'œuvre contestée, l'église de Brie-Comte-Robert disposant d'un site fort intéressant de même que la paroisse ou la commune. De surcroît, la base Palissy du ministère de la culture tente de répertorier les richesses artistiques de la France avec Une exactitude plus ou moins relative. En l'espèce, les vitraux de l'église de Brie-Comte-Robert font l'objet de notices, il est vrai sans illustration, et avec une datation erronée pour les fenêtres-hautes de la nef (XIVème siècle au lieu du XIIIème). Enfin, une petite consultation du Corpus vitrearum, certes déjà ancien pour la région Île-de-France, t'aurait évité ce type de bévue. Encore navré de devoir t'expliquer les règles élémentaires en matière de rigueur scientifique eu égard à une discipline comme l'histoire de l'art, je reste à ta disposition pour tout renseignement complémentaire concernant l'œuvre en question. GO69.

Je vous prie de bien vouloir m'excuser de vous répondre seulement maintenant. Mon vocabulaire est très limité et j'ai oublié beaucoup de choses.
S'il vous plaît, excuser cette procédure agressive, n'ai pas vu la datation. Parce que je m'm'embrouille sur l'art, je vais bientôt présenter cette image à une personne familière et compétente. J'ai fait cette demande (proposer à la suppression un fichier) parce que il n'y avait la licence appropriée. Je devrais demander, cependant, et faire une recherche sur le web. J'espère que vous n'avez pas effrayé télécharger d'autres fichiers. --RE RILLKE Questions? 20:40, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

How to create a SVG?[edit]

How to create svg files? I don't know any image editors like photoshop. Please create it & upload it friend. (I thought it's just changing the file format in the end ..lol..) Here is the file File:TamilWikipedia.png --Surya Prakash.S.A. (talk) 17:19, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Commons:Château de Versailles[edit]

Hello Rillke ! Thanks a lot for the translations of the project and the templates ! It really helps ! Trizek here or on fr:wp 09:30, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

You are welcome! I'll publish a message in the German Wikipedia and hope there a few photo-enthusiasts. --RE RILLKE Questions? 10:25, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, really ! Your action is very important for a partnership like this one. All kind of contributors are welcome to contribute, not only photographs : wikipedians are welcome to write articles for example ! They don't have to be in Versailles : we have tools for virtual tours ; they may contribute from where they are. Maybe you are interested ? Trizek here or on fr:wp 13:17, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
If there a things I can do (like improving photos (color correction, rotating, ...), translating important wp-articles, notifying users in german wp, inserting images in german-wp articles, ...) just ask me on my discussion page. But you have to know, that I am not very skilled in history and art. Therefore, if I visit France one time extensively I'll have a look at Versailles but I do not feel comfortable to write own articles or take quality photos.
By the way: I had trouble translating This is set on Wikimedia Commons, to invite photographs on backstage. Are photographers meant? (inviter une photo, Je me demande s'il vient.) --RE RILLKE Questions? 13:48, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for your proposals. I'm very interested to have an ambassador on German Wikipedia ! I don't want to give you some big work, but if you can contact the good people, and talk about the partnership, I'll be very very grateful ! Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg
And about the translations, yes, I've made a big mistake : photographe is the French word for photographer. Quite the same, you see...
Thanks a lot again ! Trizek here or on fr:wp 17:48, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Kameradetails[edit]

Danke für das nette Angebot. Eine Frage habe ich tatsächlich: Wie kann ich verhindern, dass Daten von der Kamera angezeigt werden? Grüße --SuperZebra (User talk:Wesel niederrhein|talk) 17:46, 11 April 2011 (CEST)

Sollen die Daten nur Dir nicht oder nicht angezeigt oder allen vorenthalten bleiben? (Ersteres wäre mit CSS zu lösen.) Gerade an den Kameradaten können wir häufig erkennen, ob es sich um eigene Arbeit handelt oder nicht. Deshalb wäre es schade sie zu entfernen. Ansonsten Exiftool oder Google das hab' ich aber noch nicht ausprobiert. -- RE RILLKE Questions? 16:08, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Schon gut, nicht so schlimm. Bei Google werden ja sowieso alle Daten geklaut, das ist hier ja zum Glück nicht so. Aber danke. -- Grüße Super Zebra (talk) 18:42, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Vandalismusbekämpfung[edit]

Hast du noch nicht daran gedacht, das Benutzerrecht Rollbacker zu beantragen? Das könnte dir bei deiner Vandalismusbekämpfung bestimmt hilfreich sein. Grüße, FalconL ?! 15:22, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Bis jetzt hatte ich dazu noch keinen Anlass. Die IPs haben immer nur 1 oder 2 Edits gemacht, bevor ich's bemerkt habe. Danke für den Vorschlag. -- RE RILLKE Questions? 16:43, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Ja, ich denke eigentlich, wer Patroller ist, taugt auch zum Rollbacker. Natrülich ist es kein riesiger Vorteil, aber schon irgendwie ein bisschen komfortabler, als alles (halb-)manuell zu machen. Ach, und um noch etwas Schleichwerbung zu betreiben für den Fall, dass du noch Rollbacker wirst: Rollback hat den Nachteil, dass man keine Begründung in der Zusammenfassungszeile angeben kann. Es gibt aber Skripte, mit denen das dann doch geht: User:FalconL/safe-rollback.js Grüße, FalconL ?! 18:49, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Oder wie wär's mit COM:RfA? Nicht speziell zur Vandalismusbekämpfung, eher um Scripte (MediaWiki, Benutzerscripte) selbst ändern zu können und bei der Abarbeitung der DRs zu helfen. --Leyo 21:12, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Dann müsste ich ja selbst den Kopf hinhalten und nicht auf andere zeigen :) In manchen DRs will ich partout nicht entscheiden müssen. Abgesehen davon glaube ich mir aber auch schon Feinde gemacht zu haben und nichts wäre peinlicher, als eine fehlgeschlagene Kandidatur. Darüberhinaus wäre man als Admin so gebunden - und es wird Zeiten geben in denen ich keine Minute für Commons opfern kann. Aber vielen Dank für den Vorschlag. Trotzdem schreibe ich AjaxQuickDelete nicht um. Das sollen Kalan oder Buche selbst machen .... Grüße -- RE rillke questions? 21:40, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
Es muss ja auch nicht jetzt sein. Kannst's einfach mal im Hinterkopf behalten. --Leyo 21:43, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:LouiseFusiliers Badge.jpg[edit]

Some of my images have been downsized abit including this one. I also have given every one of my images credit, description, original sources, and the correct author. I have not changed these images in any other way. Hopefully this is not enough for a deletion. Thankyou Liquid2k(talk) 5:59 13 April 2011

All of my pictures now say they might meet criteria for speedy deletion.

Photo description[edit]

Hi! I added a photo to Commons:Nacktheit but it needs a description in German Would you mind adding it?

Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 15:04, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Do you think this photo is that important to get the clue? On policy pages, I prefer simple text because images are disturbing. (This is my impression. Others may think in an other way.) Therefore, if I thought this image would be important, I would have it added yet. If you can convince me that this image is important, I'll translate the text. Good luck and thank you for your enquiry. -- RE rillke questions? 16:09, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
Well, the images originally appeared on the English version. I just posted it to other languages.
The User Max Rebo Band posted the first one on 25 May 2010 - The second one on 17 September 2010
I think the original editor of the page posted the images because they are humorous and because they ridicule the idea of taking photos of sensitive parts of the body just to upload to Wikipedia. By using humor, the images are meant to discourage people from doing this. Also images catch peoples' attention easily.
If you want, I can contact Max Rebo Band and ask him to see if there are additional reasons why he posted the pictures.

Vielen Dank! Super... So sieht die Benutzeroberfläche momentan aus. Was ist von der Durchführung zu halten? Verbesserungsvorschläge? -- RE rillke questions? 22:01, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Sieht gut aus. Vor allem sieht es sehr praktisch aus :-)

Du kannst mit den Bildern soviel rumspielen wie du magst, das OTRS ticket ist auch nur ein testticket

Groetjes --Neozoon 22:27, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Wenn Dein Skript fertig ist will ich es haben :-) --Neozoon (talk) 19:03, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Klar, aber vorher frage ich unseren solides-Holz-liefernden Baum, wo noch Tücken versteckt sind. Dann wird das ganze nach MediaWiki verschoben und eine Seite für Bugs eingerichtet. Wenn Du es zwischenzeitlich schon brauchst, kannst Du
importScript("User:Rillke/AjaxMassDelete.js");
zu Deiner js hinzufügen. Es wird dann ein Link "Perform Batch Task" zur Werkzeugleiste hinzugefügt.
Bis es nicht im MediaWiki-Namespace liegt, kann ich aber nicht für Funktionsfähigkeit garantieren. Außerdem muss ich noch mit IE und Chromium testen. Safari hab' ich nicht (und will ich nicht). Auf jedenfall danke ich für den Spielplatz, den ich auch noch ausgiebig zu nutzen gedenke.
Wenn Dir zwischenzeitlich noch eine Idee kommt, was der OTRS Mitarbeiter noch in Commons braucht und es ins Script passt, sag' es hier. -- RE rillke questions? 19:33, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Question about vocabulary[edit]

MediaWiki:AjaxQuickDelete.js[edit]

Hi, I wanted to translate the tool to Farsi which is an RTL language, problem for RTL languages is they change the order of some characters like brackets and numbers, is it possible to test the translation to see if it works correct? are changes revertible?   ■ MMXX  talk  15:34, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

You can test in your user-namespace: common.js. Problem here is that your script must be loaded after AjaxQuickDelete is loaded.
Maybe, if the result is not the expected one, upload a screenshot. Sincerely -- RE rillke questions? 17:32, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
Thank you very much, I've modified your code with my own translation but I'm not sure why it doesn't work, I still see English labels and messages, anyway, my problem is only in "Errors" messages part, is it possible to only translate some labels and leave "Errors" messages in English?   ■ MMXX  talk  10:37, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

On your script, there is

i18n: {

but we need (only for the testing purpose)

AjaxQuickDelete.i18n = {

But there were more issues (forgotten comma, ...)

Don't expect that the labels are being changed but if you e.g. click on "nominate for deletion", you'll see the changes. I've tested already. Don't forget to clear your browser's cache. -- RE rillke questions? 16:38, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Answer to the second question: Yes, but just do not translate them; All labels must be present in the translated JavaScript. -- RE rillke questions? 16:45, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your help, I've applied the new code and as you said only some of messages get translated, do you know why? actually I was going to translate labels and few messages and leave others in English.   ■ MMXX  talk  20:32, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
I changed the code and now either all messages are translated or none of them (if you test it in User-Namespace). This is because browsers may interpret JavaScript differently. But if you put the new code on MediaWiki:AjaxQuickDelete.js/fa, MediaWiki:AjaxQuickDelete.js cares about the chronology of loading and it will work fine. As I can see, all i18n-strings are translated or present, therefore everything is Ok and it should work. Adding this translation will only change the user-interface; the messages you leave on discussion-pages or summaries are untouched. -- RE rillke questions? 09:37, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
After putting this to Mediawiki-Namespace, don't forget to blank/delete your common.js . -- RE rillke questions? 16:28, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
So do you suggest that I put it in the MediaWiki:AjaxQuickDelete.js/fa without testing it? problem is I'm not sure yet about the changes made by RTL text, it's possible that some messages look really strange, so I have to test it first.   ■ MMXX  talk  12:32, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

I created a little "test". Please do not save this; just replace the content of your common.js an press "show preview". Then a few message-windows should pop-up. You can check wether they look right.

-- RE rillke questions? 17:13, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you so much for your help, I think I should work more on the translation, I'll try to replace Farsi characters with unicodes using this website, currently it seems words are not in right order. thanks again.   ■ MMXX  talk  17:40, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

One more vocab question[edit]

Would "storage space" (on an aircraft) be "Lagerraum"? WhisperToMe (talk) 18:11, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

I would suggest "Frachtraum" or "Raum für aufgegebenes Gepäck". (The area for luggage the the object of interest, right?) -- RE rillke questions? 18:37, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
It is not the underneath cargo compartment: I think it is simply storage space. WhisperToMe (talk) 03:03, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
I looked around and found "Laderaum", "Stauraum" and "Frachtraum" for that component of the plane that's outside the cabin for passengers. -- RE rillke questions? 13:40, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

The discussion follows on this page only[edit]

You call what you are doing "improve the climate on commons"? The discussion started here. Respect your OWN requests. Retracting and apologizing are both excluded from that "improvement" process? Vapmachado (talk) 19:10, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Ok., maybe I was wrong, remove the template from your discussion-page (I added this one minute after this page has been created. And this is not a problem that should be discussed on a deletion-nomination-page of a file, in my view).
In general, what do you intend with your contributions? -- RE rillke questions? 19:17, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Making it as easy for you as painting by numbers or as 1, 2, 3 if you prefer.

  1. Please make up your mind. Keep the discussion where it started. If you wish to open an exception, please state clearly so on this page that it was at your own request and restore where the discussion started here: [14]
  2. Retracting, apologizing and oversight of your belated and out of place request [15] would be a good way to start anew, even privately if you prefer.
  3. Please provide a full explanation of the next edit [16] and your response to it [17]

Who will I be writing to, just in case you intend to ask more personal questions? Vapmachado (talk) 20:42, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Let's sum up: Order of edits: 18:25 - Rillke 18:51 - Vapmachado 18:52 - Rillke 18:55 - Vapmachado 18:57 - Rillke 18:58 - Vapmachado

As you may see, I started adding this template to your user-page one minute after you created the discussion-page. Therefore you can assume that I did not recognize this duly/in time. Furthermore, because I thing our problem has nothing to do with the deletion request itself and is not of interest for a lot of other users, I prefer to use user-talk-pages.

Let's go to no.2: I still think it is inappropriate to call someone's work "crap"; especially as the author is an active contributor to commons. It is not important what other users say or do. Everyone is responsible for his wording.

There is probably a language-gap (I am only an intermediate-en-speaker): If you think I misunderstood something, feel free to point this out.

Now no.3: I hardly believe that administrators do Troll-Requests (nonsense/ vandalism requests). Therefore I wanted to point out that we shouldn't treat it as "nonsense request".

4: Your intention behind your edits is that secret that you have to know my identity :)

Sincerely -- RE rillke questions? 17:26, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry for not taking into account that you are only an intermediate-en-speaker, and not explaining myself a little better which I believe is causing a lot of misunderstandings. I hope you'll forgive my oversight, and I'll try to take it a little slower to avoid confusing you. When in doubt, and even if not in doubt, please ask, so that you'll get confirmation. I'll try to do the same.
Under item 1. I wrote "restore where the discussion started here: [18]" "Here," meant "on this page," that is, on this discussion page of yours that was the first post concerning this matter.
You seemed to be rightfully concerned with what happened before and after that message. There was or there is no implication whatsoever concerning the sequence of what happened before or after the posting of that message. It was never my intention to question it, and, again, I apologize if I have misled you.
Sincerely,
Virgilio A. P. Machado
Vapmachado (talk) 00:57, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

I don't want to misinterpret your intentions. Given your lack of response, I'm assuming that you have no intention of honoring your own request and restore the first post[19] that was made, on this discussion page, concerning the subject of this discussion. Is my assumption correct? Vapmachado (talk) 00:30, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Mhh ..., I can see the text of your first edit on my page here, just below the headline (h2). But I'll not change the haeding to "for your information" as this is not very descriptive. If you have an idea what heading would be better, let me know. Sincerely -- RE rillke questions? 17:43, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

You are absolutely right. It's the first line of text on this section. I only noticed that now. Sorry about that. What about following your order of edits and use some subheadings? I would suggest starting with my comment.[20] Do you want me to try showing how that would look, no obligation for you to keep it, and you're welcome to delete it or change it if you don't like it or don't agree? Vapmachado (talk) 03:16, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Feel free to show me what you think looks better as long as this does not affect the other postings on this page. Thank you. -- RE rillke questions? 07:48, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

I added the first three edits in chronological order, so that you could see how they will look. Again, you have no obligation to keep them that way, and you're welcome to delete or change whatever you want, if you don't like or agree with the way they are presented. Vapmachado (talk) 04:21, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

I'm finished adding to this page all previous edits form other pages. We now have everything in one place. I hope that was done to your entire satisfaction. If that is the case, we'll have point 1. above behind us. Please let me know if you have no objections and if we can proceed trying to untangle any remaining misunderstandings. Vapmachado (talk) 21:16, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Looks good to me, we can go on. -- RE rillke questions? 14:31, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Added links in bold to the origin of each subsection, as I was doing initially, but forgot to do for the remaining transcriptions. I'm sorry I missed that. I hope you'll agree with their late inclusion.

Under point 2. what I wrote was that your request [21] was "belated and out of place," that is, was made too late on the deletion request and did not address the much more serious cases, that then I listed in the talk page. All those other comments were made before mine, that is, they were "all written above my comment."

Somebody else also thought that your request was somewhat heavy handed [22]

You honestly admited, that you did not read the other comments [23] and that maybe you were wrong [24]

I think that your request was "belated and out of place," and asked you to retract it, apologize and oversight it, for those two reasons and those two reasons only ("belated and out of place") as I tried to explain above.

I have nothing against you thinking that "it is inappropriate to call someone's work "crap"; especially as the author is an active contributor to commons. It is not important what other users say or do. Everyone is responsible for his wording."

The "language-gap" might have played a role in your reaction to my wording. It's certainly not the most polite expression, but look at the way the meanings are ordered as to reflect the most common use: [25] 1) Something that is of extremely poor quality; 2) Nonsense; and 3) Rubbish; junk. Only 4) and 5) are the real stinkers :-)

Still on the "language-gap," allow me to make one suggestion, and you're welcome to ask for a "second opinion." Instead of "I don't want another spiral of insults here," something more impersonal, like "A spiral of insults is not welcome here" might be preferable. That conveys more that your personal opinion, but also what the community thinks is desirable, that you agree with, and are trying to convey to another person.

Anyway, I didn't, I don't and I would never ask you to retract, apologize and oversight your opinion, which I respect and you are absolutely untitled to.

If you were able to understand all of the above (don't hesitate to ask for clarification of anything that you don't), please take the time to do what you think might be appropriate and suitable for now. Vapmachado (talk) 04:22, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your patience with me and the work to "sketch" the situation, showing that your intention here is really reasonable.
It will take some time till I'll comprehend everything and can take action.
I added my comment - you really couldn't know this - because I experienced some hateful speech on another place (and User:Niabot's work was involved, too - It really polarized the community.) which ended e.g. in some users got blocked (example is by the way the user who added the 'freedom of speech comment') because they did not know when to stop. This should not apologize my exaggerated, and -I agree- belated comments.
It would be helpful if you can explain how "A spiral of insults is not welcome here" conveys more personal opinion. Using the first person singular I thought, I can express my opinion.
Of course everybody should be able to tell his opinion here at commons and I don't want you to keep away form discussions and I never wanted to. If you felt so, I am sorry.
And you were right. I used Google translator (and another one) for "crap" and translated into my native language, it was a clear insult. But now I am wiser. Thank you. -- RE rillke questions? 22:30, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

I understand the reason why you lost your patience with my comment and appreciate you taking the time to explain it. I wasn't following any of those other discussions. That deletion request was brought to my attention by a post on the Foundation-l mailing list http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/foundation-l/2011-May/065517.html I did feel that you were picking on me, and that made me respond.

Sorry. My mistake. The phrase "That conveys more that your personal opinion" should be "That conveys more than your personal opinion." (the first one doesn't make much sense). That should make clear my suggestion.

Your observation from such a well reputed dictionary made me look up a couple of things which might also be useful to you.

There are great linguists of all sorts of languages in Germany (including of Portuguese) and the Langenscheidt dictionaries are among the best if not the best in the world. I looked up my own Taschenwörterbuch der Portugiesischen und Deutschen Sprache and found the following:

"Übersetzung und Bedeutung. Die Reihenfolge richtet sich grundsätzlich nach der gebräuchlichkeit und Häufigkeit des entsprechenden Wortes."

That rule is not always followed. My The New Merriam-Webster Pocket Dictionary uses the following criteria under Sense Division:

"No one of the senses, as defined, is better or more important than another, but one may have more appropriate meaning in a specific context."

Interesting enough, I found a criteria in my Portuguese dictionary that seems to fit what you found in your Langenscheidt Dictionary of Contemporary English. It translates like this:

The different meanings are shown in logical order, from their natural meaning to the figurative.

One last detail. Is your dictionary of British, American English or both? Non-formal speech varies more from one place to another and with time also. My familiarity with non-formal speech in Great Britain is somewhat limited.

As far as I'm concerned were done with points 2. and 3. (I understood your explanation of what was going on). There's a couple of things that I would still like to address. I'll get to them in my next message. Thanks for your attention. Vapmachado (talk) 04:35, 8 June 2011 (UTC)


The question, at the end of my message at 20:42, 16 May 2011 (UTC) asked "Who will I be writing to, just in case you intend to ask more personal questions?" That means that if you intended to ask more personal questions, like "In general, what do you intend with your contributions?", which I consider a personal question, I would like to know who I would be talking to. Would I be talking to a 12 year old girl or to a retired steel worker? You don't write the same way to both. I guess you are neither. You could have written: "Call me Mike, I'm a German 18 year old high school senior (last year)." As long as that was true, it would have been sufficient. I'm sorry to say that your statement "Your intention behind your edits is that secret that you have to know my identity :)" is FALSE, smile included. It is absurd to infer from my comment [26], my response [27] to your "belated and out of place request" [28], and my next six edits, that my intentions behind my edits is that secret that I have to know your identity. I already explained how much I needed to know of your identity and why. Thanks for not having asked any more personal questions, like what are my intentions.

"I recall how some people have been so baffled that they wonder about what are my intentions. I don't think I ever answered. We all know that "hell is full of good intentions." What I have done is nothing, but whatever I have done for the Wikimedia Foundation projects nobody can take away from me. Now, would you believe me if I told you that there are some people who are spending their time and effort trying to do just that? Sad isn't it? But yes, it is true, you better believe me." [29]

My second point is that I have been very fortunate to be able to carry this exchange with you, without the interference of others. Consider the time and effort it took me (and you) to get over this misunderstanding. Imagine what it feels like when some half a dozen of angry editors jump in, accusing me of all sort of misdeeds. Very seldom do I have the time and disposition to explain things in detail to each and every one of them, right away. Look at how long we have been carrying this conversation: it's going to be three weeks, next Monday! That's why I have written the following, elsewhere, under "Ask first, fire later" [30] (I don't have an English version. Please use an automatic translator. It should be enough to give you an idea of what I meant. If there's anything that you're not sure you have understood, please "ask first, fire later":

«Esta edição [31] da página de referências exemplifica uma das questões mais complexas do trabalho colaborativo nos projectos da Wikimedia. Como se sabe, qualquer pessoa pode editar, em qualquer altura e é encorajada a fazê-lo. Por vezes a intervenção é no trabalho de um editor individual, noutras em trabalho já de natureza colaborativa, envolvendo vários editores, entre os quais se estabeleceu uma metodologia de trabalho que pode não estar documentada ou completamente explicitada. A gestão de todo este processo é de grande delicadeza pois é, potencialmente, geradora de contrariedades que, facilmente, podem escalar em conflitos, mais ou menos agudos. As relações estabelecidas entre os editores envolvidos são determinantes para um eventual desfecho amistoso e benéfico para o projecto em causa e para todas as partes envolvidas.

É difícil estabelecer regras rígidas, porque cada caso é um caso, mas encontram-se considerandos, aqui e ali:

«A edição é livre, mas com a liberdade vem a responsabilidade, por isso lhe pedimos que use este recurso de maneira responsável.» [32]

«Reversão é, portanto, uma ação aconselhada ou apropriada ao lidar com o vandalismo. Não é recomendado reverter apenas por considerar uma versão mais antiga preferível à versão actual.» [33]

«não se deve utilizar o sumário de edição como plataforma de diálogo numa guerra de edições entre usuários, o que pode levar ao bloqueio de ambos se não utilizarem em vez disso a página de discussão para apresentarem os argumentos de alterações.» [34]

[...] fica aqui ilustrada uma das consequências mais difíceis de gerir nos projectos da Wikimedia. É que até uma edição bem intencionada pode exigir do editor anterior um substancial esforço de explicação e justificação, recaindo sobre ele o duplo trabalho de criar e defender as características da sua criação. Ao editor seguinte, para além do tempo gasto em trabalho, eventualmente, não produtivo, bastou uma linha de sumário. Esta desproporção de esforço, nem sempre é favorável ao projecto e dá muita força à recomendação de usar a liberdade de editar com o máximo de responsabilidade. A via mais segura, mais cordial, mais respeitadora do trabalho dos outros, parece ser, em caso de dúvida, perguntar primeiro e editar depois. É munido desse cordial entendimento que cada editor se integra, verdadeiramente, no trabalho colaborativo em curso e o fenómeno se multiplica pela imensa e sempre renovada rede de editores dos projectos Wikimedia. Nada do acima exposto se aplica, evidentemente, a casos flagrantes de vandalismo, que requerem uma actuação concertada de natureza muito diversa.»

I would still like to know if your Langenscheidt Dictionary of Contemporary English is of British, American English or both. If you can't tell, I might be able to help you find out.

Thank you again for your time and patience.

Your request for a speedy deletion of File:AstridBerge.jpg[edit]

Hi!

I am totally confused, now, regarding this case. The user who has uploaded the image has maintained he was the image`s author and has released the image to the public under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license. Do You not believe him that, and if so - why?! --Hans Dunkelberg (talk) 21:45, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Do you see a CC-By-SA anywhere on this website, which seems to be the original source? In general, if an image has been published, we need either a link to the website confirming the chosen license or an COM:OTRS E-Mail.
In this case we have a significantly smaller resolution and a crop, and no Exif-data. Therefore, I think the author-claims are not accurate. (If he is the photographer, why he uploads only a small resolution and leaves no comment that it is the small resolution and you can obtain a higher res. if you want to pay for another license?). Why he uploads only one picture?
All in all it seems to be a copyvio to me and we are enforced to make sure that Commons does not host them.
Maybe I am wrong but we have COM:UR in case the user decides to provide a link or a permission via OTRS. Sincerely -- RE rillke questions? 22:05, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
I see, so this is just Your overall impression. I think You should insert the adjective "probable" before "copyvio". I have removed the image from the English and the Italian articles and checked the other articles linked to in the English article. The image is now not used anywhere, any more. In the Català article, there is a further image which I do not understand the copyright notice of. It is a film poster or a crop of such a poster and maybe thought to be usable in the sense of "fair use", or how that is called (I do not know what that is).
Do You not think it could deter many people who would like to contribute images that they do not know whom they should write such a COM:OTRS e-mail? --Hans Dunkelberg (talk) 22:16, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
Ok. Let's see who is right. The uploader has 7 days time to send a permission or just provide a link to an explicit permission or explain why it is published somewhere in the web. It is really not necessary to remove the image from the articles. If an administrator decides to delete, he will use commons-delinker which produces a log-file and you can undo the changes if you want to.
Sincerely -- RE rillke questions? 22:39, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

I understand that it could be problematic to hint possible illegally acting people all-too clearly to the methods Wikimedia uses for the verification of data on image authorship, but I have inserted a hint to the OTRS personnel list, on the discussion page of the English Wikipedia article on Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey. That should suffice for the case that we have to do with a good faith upload. --Hans Dunkelberg (talk) 23:17, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

It is not important that you actually know the law of every country. It is important to know where to find the information and to apply them.
On the candidature, I think I'll vote with neutral. Therefore, you may think about withdrawing the candidature (but that's possibly wrong - it is your decision), looking on Commons:License review and linked pages and then return. You can take time to answer the questions. We do not expect you know everything.
Furthermore there is a difference in mentality. You wrote you would delete the image because the author does not agree with publishing under the chosen license anymore. That would possibly morally right but we are enforced not to care about this. Only the legal stuff is important. And that's why we have image-reviewers. These trusted persons should state whether an image has been published under the specified for later record.

I can't obtain the author's name. The uploader to BOLD Systems simply didn´t mention it and left it "unspecified". Combined with "No Rights Reserved" I don't see a problem. You underestimate yourself. What you think IS important and resulted you in tagging with "no source".

Special:MyUploads[edit]

Hi, you might not have seen the comment I left at AN. I was wondering whether you think you could adapt your AjaxMassDelete script to provide an AjaxListFilesFilter script, with some of the filtering options asked for in Bugzilla30522? Most fundamentally, just showing all the files a user has ever uploaded (unlike Special:ListFiles/username), with annotating cases where the file was overwritten by someone else, would be great, and I think not so far away from what your existing script does.

This would be useful in itself, and then links for those options could then be provided in MediaWiki:Listfiles-summary as well (Commons' local copy, that is). That would be an excellent interim solution (bug will probably take 6-12 months minimum to be actioned). What do you think? Rd232 (talk) 01:49, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

I'm working on it. -- RE rillke questions? 09:14, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Prototype at User:Rillke/JSONListUploads.js. It is far away from being ready. But the overall look will not change. -- RE rillke questions? 18:15, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

So, really, a link to your script (when it's a bit more polished) should replace the planned link to Special:MyUploads, since it's so much more useful (being what MyUploads should be). Or do you see some problem with doing that? Rd232 (talk) 00:22, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Yes, users complaining about something they expect and what's not working in that way. :-) Seriously: There are a few users without JavaScript. -- RE rillke questions? 09:06, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
Users without Javascript won't get the Special:MyUploads link either, since that's added via Javascript. So there's no difference for them. We could think about how to make Special:MyUploads more prominent for them, but right now, it's all about people with Javascript. Rd232 (talk) 09:53, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

There's no good word for "uploads", so maybe "Moje pliki" (My files) or "Pliki, które przesłałem" (Files I've uploaded).

"First, consider whether becoming an administrator is the best way for you to contribute to the project. Experience shows that outstanding contributors of content often reduce their contributions because of the maintenance overhead after they become admins, and this is what we want least."
I fear I will have less time for the things, I like. Furthermore there is the legal question: Am I responsible if I do not delete an image for some reasons and a court will decide in another way?

Hi Rillke, ich habe gerade beispielhaft mal ein Bild versucht per CH2 zu übertragen - der braucht ewig (>5 Minuten). Ich glaube fast, dass es schneller geht es manuell zu machen. Ins Feld Quelle sollte wenn möglich dann noch ein Link auf das Uploadlog der Datei in Commons, sodass es nachvollziehbar ist, wo die Datei herkommt. Eigentlich hätte ich auch dringenderes zu tun, als die Dateien geschätzt stundenlang zu verschieben. ;)
Ich war eben schon daran mir ein paar JS-regexps zum Einfügen in die Firebug-Konsole zu schreiben, um manuell gut verschieben zu können. Wäre auch ne Möglichkeit - dann müsste ich noch nicht mal entlöschen.
var box = $j("textarea").html();  //holt sich den Beschreibungstext 
box = box.replace(/\|Description\s*\=/g, "|Beschreibung     =)";
//TODO // ....
//TODO // {{cc-by-sa-2.0-de}} → {{Bild-CC-by-sa/2.0/de}}
//TODO // |Quelle= foo → |Quelle= [//commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log&page=File:ENCODEDPAGENAME commons]. Originalquelle: foo
box;
Wie willst du verschieben? Wenn du willst, kann ich sie dir entlöschen - klar. Du hast nicht zufälligerweise Lust ins IRC zu kommen? Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 18:03, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

importScriptURI('//de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=user:lustiger_seth/unsigned.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript&smaxage=2678400'); 
Und ab damit in die common.js oder <skin>.js Gerade getested. -- RE rillke questions? 14:59, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Okay, danke. Das Ding spricht dann aber nur Deutsch, richtig? Ich hab es schon gesehen, dass hier auf Commons nachsigniert wurde, bloß weiß ich nicht, ob die Leute ein Skript oder ein Template benutzt haben oder was... --Schwäbin (talk) 17:18, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Nein, es setzt genau das, was Du brauchst und nutzt englisch (unsigned). -- RE rillke questions? 17:31, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

VisualFileChange.js: doesn't work on the contributions page[edit]

Hi Rillke, bei ↑ habe ich zwei bugs(?) entdeckt: Wenn man das Tool auf Beitragslisten von Usern aufruft, funktioniert es nicht (undefined im Drop-down). Und: Oben bei der Checkbox sollte es nicht "Disselect" sondern Deselect heißen. 2 Doku-Bilder als zip . Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 00:12, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Danke für die Hinweise. Leider bin ich nicht in der Lage das eigenartige Verhalten auf der Contribs-Seite nachzuvollziehen. Ich habe aber eine Idee: Das i18n-Objekt wird irgendwie wieder überschrieben. (Tritt dann wahrscheinlich nicht mit &uselang=en auf.) Von meinem momentanen Standort aus, kann ich das allerdings nicht ändern. Wird also noch eine Weile dauern. Grüße -- RE rillke questions? 09:48, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Die Weile dauern macht gar nichts. Wollte es nur mitteilen. :) Auf http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Contributions/Rillke&uselang=en Steht in dem Dialogpopup schon "null" (statt deinem Namen) drin, nachdem ich auf "perform batch task" geklickt habe. Ich habe dann deinen Namen eingetragen: dann war alles richtig. Wenn ich auf https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Rillke (ohne uselang) gehe, steht im Popup direkt schon Rillke drin, aber danach steht "undefined" im interface. Ah! Wenn ich meine Interface-Sprache auf Englisch umstelle, dann geht's auf auch der Beitragsliste (hatte vorher Deutsch). Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 22:39, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Bug MediaWiki:JSONListUploads.js: zwei Uploads fehlen[edit]

Hallo Rillke, wenn ich für den User Samiam26 JSONListUploads.js aufrufe, wird mir nur File:TantrumbyartistJasonThompson.jpg und File:DaydreamerBronze.jpg angezeigt, obwohl er noch (ich wollte einen danach einen Mass-DR stellen) vier Uploads hat. Habe das gleiche auch nochmal ohne https probiert und in der JS-Konsole stehen in FF 3.6 keine Fehler. Ebenso in Opera 11 (unangemeldet). Die Statistics sind:

New Created:8
Overwritten:0
Reverted:0
Total logged events:8
Deleted:6
Deleted revs:0
Matching filter:2

Ansonsten: Mega-Tools bastelst du hier! :-) Wenn die bezahlten Devs doch mal sowas (gescheites) machen könnten... Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 22:28, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

1 API-Fehler und der Rest sind Redirects, für die ich kein ImageInfo bekomme. An denen muss ich noch arbeiten. Ist gerade für verschobene Dateien wichtig. Sonst bekommt noch jemand einen Schreck, wenn da steht seine Datei sei gelöscht worden. -- RE rillke questions? 09:37, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
✓ Done -- RE rillke questions? 17:41, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
Done? Ich sehe weiterhin nur 2. ;-) Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 00:23, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
Ja, in der Kopie in meinem BNR. Wenn Du MediaWiki:JSONListUploads.js aktualisierst, sollten zumindest einige auftauchen. -- RE rillke questions? 06:16, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
Zumindest dachte ich das. Ist aber hier nicht der Fall: Für 2 darunter auch File:Himself with child.jpeg gibt die API keine Informationen zum Bild an. Ich werde Roan mal fragen. Die anderen sind als dupes gelöscht. Jedenfalls verfolgt das Script jetzt bis zu max. einer Dateiverschiebung. Zur Not sieht man die Datei aber immernoch als gelöscht. -- RE rillke questions? 06:23, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
Alles klar, danke! Nach Krinkles Aussage update ich das wohl besser nicht einfach so - oder wie ist das? Er scheint das Script für recht problematisch zu halten.

Inwiefern könnte die Sache bzgl. Security denn für das Rotatescript relevant sein? Es ist aber ja wesentlich kompakter... Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 23:27, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Wenn er es sicherheismäßig für problematisch hält, soll er sagen, was falsch ist. Ich sehe da absolut keine Probleme. Und vorher waren auch keine sicherheitsrelevanten drin. Das Problem mit den "insecure requests" bezog sich nur auf die Bilder die das Script geladen hat. Die müssen m.E. nicht digital signiert werden (völliger Unsinn...), habe es aber trotzdem geändert, weil manche Browser das sonst blockieren. HTML wird ordnungsgemäß escaped (war von Anfang an so), wenn es nötig ist und so etwas wie Buffer-Overflow gibt es in JavaScript nicht. Außerdem gibt es keine Handler, die einfach irgendwelche Funktionen aufrufen, ohne zu prüfen. -- RE rillke questions? 09:10, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
(BK) Oha, sorry, da habe ich wohl etwas falsches angesprochen. ;-) Nunja - wenn jemand seinem Provider/Arbeitgeber/Neugierigen im LAN sein Surfverhalten nicht mitteilen will, dann ist der Abruf der bilder über https schon nötig. Ist ja (mit protokollrelativen URLs) auch kein Umstand das zu machen. Magogs Script benutze ich schon aus anderen Gründen nicht, aber danke für den Hinweis. :) Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 12:15, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Naja, dass Du auf Commons herum spazierst, sieht -wer es möchte- trotzdem. Und wenn man dann noch 1&1 zusammenzählt, weiß man auch was Du machst. (nicht was Du Dir anguckst - aber früher oder später verrät man sich doch mit einem Edit, der ja mit Zeitstempel geloggt wird; Zeitstempel + Zeitpunkt der Anfrage an den Server = Aha, der Benutzer). Außerdem soll es ja Zertifizierungsstellen geben, die Zertifikate für HotMail und Yahoo ausstellen und nicht merken, dass die Betreiber nicht dahinter stecken. Dennoch ich kann das Argument verstehen. Über die Leistung braucht man sich momentan keine Sorgen zu machen. Da hat die WMF wahrscheinlich aufgerüstet. -- RE rillke questions? 12:53, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Gegen Ansprechen habe ich auch gar nichts. Übrigens habe ich die Aussage über das andere Script zurückgezogen. -- RE rillke questions? 12:53, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Ja, über Matching von Zeitstempeln in den RC und Zeitstempeln im Traffic bekommt ein Angreifer heraus, welchen Usernamen der angegriffene Anschluss hat. Das gilt aber nur für Edits, die man macht. Welche Bilder oder Seiten abgerufen werden, bleibt verborgen. Ja - ist mir wohlbekannt - wenn denn nicht der Angreifer gefälschte Zertifikate besitzt und die Verbindung nicht nur belauschen, sondern auch manipulieren kann. Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 14:31, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
So jetzt lege ich nochmal nach :-) Betroffen waren nur die UserInterface-Bilder. Die Thumbs kamen sicher verschlüsselt. So gesehen sind einige von Lupos Tools jetzt auch unsicher. Einfach mal beim Besuch eines Bildes auf "Seiteninformationen anzeigen" (Kontextmenü) klicken und dann auf "Medien". Du wirst sehen, dass der Immage-annotator das hier lädt. "Oh großer Schreck", sprach der Arbeitgeber: "Der Saibo besucht nicht nur Commons, sondern auch Dateiseiten." Verzeih mir bitte diesen dunklen Humor/ diese Dummheit. Und weil ich gerade beim Schlammwerfen bin, kannst Du $('input>', { daran erkennen, dass auch Krinkle Fehler unterlaufen. Was mich aber am meisten ärgert, ist dass unsere Anfragen zu ignorieren scheint und dieses halb zerbrochene Script da jetzt unter meinem Namen rumliegt. Kannst es gern löschen (das im Commons-Namensraum natürlich). -- RE rillke questions? 15:59, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
Rillke, mache dir doch keine unnötige Mühe - weiß ich doch. Aber nur weil andere Scripte und vielleicht sogar MEdiaWiki-Extensions das nicht gut machen, heißt das ja nicht, dass man es nicht besser machen kann, oder? :) Dem ImageAnnotator wollte ich eigentlich schon länger mal nachgehen... nunja - irgendwann :D
Was zu tun ist, ist der Editrequest in den Adminnotizen, richtig? Ich könnte ja ... ;-) Dazu fühle ich mich aber noch ein wenig zu unwissend in der Sache. Ich mache jetzt erstmal das mit der Drehung.
Da ich glaube, dass dir zu wenige Leute danke sagen ... ich mach's daher einfach nochmal: DANKE! :-) Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 18:11, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

anotations[edit]

Hi, I noticed this edit I do not object to it, but do not understand it. The image File:Over-categorization.svg does not have any annotations. --Jarekt (talk) 13:26, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

As this is a high-traffic page and there are no annotations required in this image, I just thought that it's not necessary that the browser sends a request asking for the contents of the file-description page in order to display annotations (because the browser does not know that there aren't annotations) each time someone visiting the page. It's just a waste of resources. That's one reason why image-annotations on images included in templates should be always turned off. If you have firebug-console or similar you can see the XHRs. If you disagree fell free to revert. Sincerely -- RE rillke questions? 14:47, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
I do not disagree, I did not know about that extra server call. I know that image-annotations on images included in templates should be always turned off - at some point creator templates did not have it and it was very strange when I first encountered creator template using image with annotations. However many templates I know display some icons or logos and those are usually not have annotations turned off. I will try to fix that. I learn something new every day. Thanks --Jarekt (talk) 15:26, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
We should probably ask User:Lupo, who invented image-annotator whether there is a threshold of the size before changing a lot of pages. -- RE rillke questions? 17:12, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
He wrote in Template:ImageNoteControl/doc that the threshold is at 60x60, so I guess icons or logos should be fine. --Jarekt (talk) 18:20, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Cleanup script[edit]

OK, so I finally got booted into Windows 7... and I'm not experiencing the same problems with IE9 (specifically, 9.0.8112.16421). My guess is MS won't want to take a bug report for IE8 on Windows XP, although I could be wrong. Thoughts? Magog the Ogre (talk) 19:00, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I fear so, too — even if WinXP is still supported and IE9 does not run on it. Thanks for testing. -- RE rillke questions? 17:17, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Hi, could you launch a bot run to remove the hard redirects in Commons:Database reports/Broken redirects ? I don't know what happen yesterday to have such a massive new amount of redirects. --Foroa (talk) 02:31, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Most of the work ✓ Done. There were a few exceptions. -- RE rillke questions? 08:03, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

✓ Done Took me just one minute :). BTW one of the pages seems to be protected or at least I got an error that I can't edit protected page. Next time I'll investigate which page it is. -- RE rillke questions? 08:45, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
The script is now stable enough and there is no need to patrol it's edits anymore. Could you please add autopatrolled-usergroup? I asked Leyo to remove it before because I wanted to patrol it's edits. Thank you. -- RE rillke questions? 09:32, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
Funny enough, several of them where very old; it looks as if Bernsteinbot is improving itself ;) I found the protected one; this is of course not acceptable for a talk page. Could you check a bit the coming days till we get all the old ones filtered out. Thank you again. --Foroa (talk) 10:52, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
Of course. -- RE rillke questions? 11:10, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for correcting my data[edit]

Thank you for correcting the data of the images I uploaded (Best before seals). I was wondering for some time how to set the data right and then saw you did it. I couldn't uderstand why some images uploaded correctly but some of them didn't. Maybe because of the cyrillic letters. I really don't know.--Gabriel VanHelsing (talk) 19:54, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Musikantene St Hanshaugen park.JPG[edit]

When you add a category to a DR, such as Category:Undelete in 2078 in this one, please be sure to enclose it in <noinclude> so that it is not transcluded. If you omit the markup, not only the DR, but the DR log of the day and month, and the archive, will all show up in the category.

Oops, of course, sorry. While I think Category:Undelete in 2078 can be removed but I can remember tagging other DRs with more realistic dates, too. -- RE rillke questions? 13:41, 16 October 2011 (UTC)
Well, I usually wouldn't add an undelete much beyond 2030 or so, but we can afford to take a very long view, since it is essentially free.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 15:55, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Concerning Infonuagique.svg[edit]

The message I got here is unclear: the template does not specify what the corrective action is (which fields need to be filled out, and with what). I'm also surprised the upload wizard did not prevent this from happening. Urhixidur (talk) 14:29, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I cannot recommend UploadWizard for derivative works. It is important that the original author is mentioned in the author field. I use this for derivatives. You can see that I reverted my no source. I missed that you put it in the description field. -- RE rillke questions? 14:34, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
I'm glad this was cleared up (you acted just a tad too fast  :-) ). My request that the warning template be improved still stands, though. Keep in mind that its intended audience is rather newbie-ish. Urhixidur (talk) 14:52, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
I fear you have to make an explicit proposal. It is autotranslated and it must be updated for each language, then. -- RE rillke questions? 15:17, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Rotate > 360°[edit]

Hallo Rillke/Discuss/2011! Danke für die Änderungen 1 2 - allerdings habe ich einen Fehler gemacht: der Bot weist in der aktuellen alles ab, was nicht 0,90,180,270° ist. Nur, falls intern (durch das Berücksichtigen von EXIF) mehr als 360 rauskommen, kommt mod zum tragen. Man könnte problemlos mehr als 360° (sofern mod 90 = 0) akzeptieren, aber dann müsste ich Luxo nerven eine neue Codeversion einzuspielen. Ich habe nur den Code und daran programmiert, nicht aber den TS-Zugriff. Kannst du dem switch-Befehl in den Vorlagen einfach den gemodeten Wert geben? Der Rotatebot geht nur nach dem Sortkey - was in der Vorlage steht, ist egal. Wenn nicht, mache es bitte wieder rückgängig. Sorry. Bei der nächsten Codeänderung bau ich den mod-Spaß auch mal bei der Eingangsprüfung ein - weil's so schön ist. ;) Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 00:14, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Danke für deine Änderung an Template:Rotate! Wenn ein Fehler auftritt, dann wird {{lc:{{{degree|{{{1|}}}}}} als Sortkey genommen? Und ansonsten keiner? Kannst du mir das erklären? :)

{{#iferror: {{ #expr: {{{degree|{{{1|}}}}}} mod 360 }} | {{lc:{{{degree|{{{1|}}}}}}}}}}

Aber wird schon passen - der Bot hat ja alles richtig gemacht (wie es grob durchgeschaut aussieht), und wenn hier jemand Programmierfehler macht, dann bin ich das. ;) Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 18:22, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Eigentlich könnte man sich das iferror im sortkey bei der momentanen Programmierung auch sparen. Ich habe mich an an der Hilfe in der de.WP orientiert. {{#iferror: <Ausdruck> | <Text bei Fehler> }} — Bei einem Fehler im Ausdruck wird Text bei Fehler angezeigt, ansonsten der fehlerfreie Ausdruck. -- RE rillke questions? 18:34, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Deletion review[edit]

Hi Rillke. Sorry you got drawn into the mess re Catrinas. FWIW, your image was nominated (along with six of mine) vindictively rather than because of any good reason.

Your Flickr review tags[edit]

Please change the format you use upon placing the Flickrreview tag, your current format is detected by the FlickrreviewR robot as "never edited by their reviewer" and reported here. Please use {{Flickrreview|Rillke|2011-10-28}} instead. Please change the tags on the three listed images accordingly and remove them from the list. I can't change the format myself because it's reported as well (unless I place my own tag). --Denniss (talk) 01:35, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

Didn't know that the bot is that stupid. Changed & thanks for notifiying me. {{Frw}} must be changed as well... -- RE rillke questions? 08:15, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
No, the Bot isn't stupid, the first set of instructions at Template:Flickrreview/doc#Usage, generated via {{TemplateBox}} is wrong. --Denniss (talk) 08:49, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
Bots should be tolerant whether using template-parameters or not since it is valid Wikisyntax. I left a note on it's talk-page. Probably Bryan finds it some day. Do you think I have to change {{Prw}}, ... as well? Or are there cleverer or just no bots for those ones? -- RE rillke questions? 08:59, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
I'd consider the Flickrreview bot a bit fragile and not working at 100% anymore as it doesn't use the bad authors list during the review process (also applies to the Flickrupload bot). Because of this I'd suggest to keep using a syntax the bot is familar with. If you know someone able and willing to check/fix the bot or to program a new one, please ask him/her. I don't think Prw needs to be changed - AFAIR it's a manual review process and The Flickrreview bot is not connected with it.--Denniss (talk) 20:23, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

On the other hand he will have to learn that one can't make it as everyone like it. It is important to find your own way. Thanks for the notification, Leoboudv. Do you suggest doing something? Sincerely -- RE rillke questions? 08:17, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
  • No. WikiCommons and Wikipedia can be really addictive and time consuming and time management can be a problem...even to me. When I applied to be a reviewer here, I said straight out that I would never apply to be an Admin as I don't have the time to handle the responsibilities of being an Admin. Hongquan has made his choice. One can wish he remained a reviewer to mark images like I do--and I did support his reviewer request--but its his life to do as he wishes. As for me, my high resolution photos are on my userpage here. I don't take many photos anyway and have free time to do most edits mostly only on weekends only.

Ein Willkommenspräsent für unseren neuen Administrator von deinen Kollegen...

Herzlichen Glückwunsch, Rillke! Du hast jetzt die Rechte eines Administrators auf Commons. Nimm dir bitte einen Moment Zeit, um dir die Seite Commons:Administratoren und die in Verbindung mit der Beobachtungsliste stehenden Seiten durchzulesen (insbesondere Commons:Administrators' noticeboard und Commons:Deletion requests), bevor du damit beginnst, Seitenlöschungen, Accountsperrungen oder Änderungen am Seitenschutzstatus bzw. an den geschützten Seiten selbst durchzuführen. Der Großteil der Bearbeitungen eines Administrators kann durch andere Administratoren wieder rückgängig gemacht werden, mit Ausnahme der Zusammenführung von Versionsgeschichten, die deshalb mit spezieller Obacht behandelt werden muß.

Wir laden dich herzlich ein, mit uns auf IRC Kontakt aufzunehmen: #wikimedia-commons @ irc.freenode.net. Es gibt auch einen Channel für Commons-Admins, der für sensiblere Themen sowie zur Koordination unter Admins genutzt werden kann. Du findest zudem in dem Commons:Ratgeber zur Administratorentätigkeit vielleicht eine nützliche Lektüre.

Bitte überprüfe, ob du in der Commons:List of administrators und den jeweils nach Datum oder Sprache sortierten Listen eingetragen wurdest und ergänze deine Daten andernfalls.

Help needed with a Flickrreview script[edit]

The script at User:Patstuart/Flickrreview.js is used by a lot of admins/image reviewers. Today I stumbled onto a problem - if the license tag is placed after the Flickrreview-error tag then the license gets deleted once the script places a positive review tag. See here for an example. It's not a problem using it for a regular Flickrreview tag, see here. Do you have some time to investigate? --Denniss (talk) 18:09, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Hope this helps. -- RE rillke questions? 18:59, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing - works. Could you fix another problem? Script does not work with {{Flickrreview/human}}, see here, it places the review tag at the bottom of the page without replacing the old tag. --Denniss (talk) 14:19, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
Should be ✓ Done. I really don't know why this old script is still in use. It does not care for lots of new tags and is outdated. -- RE rillke questions? 16:31, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Because it's working for most of the time. The FlickrFixr gadget (from preferences) does not work with all Flickr templates. If I understand the code right, it only works with the standard Flickrreview template but not if flickrreview/human is placed or the bot reported a problem requesting human review. --Denniss (talk) 18:20, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Ok, then let's see whether I can update the gadget. Thank you. -- RE rillke questions? 18:50, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Gadget-desc[edit]

Hi Rillke, I've created a way for {{Gadget-desc}} to display messages requesting translation help, if the user's language isn't available for a gadget description. Can you take a look at User:Rd232/sandbox2 and make sure it makes sense to you? The logic is a bit tricky and I'd like a second opinion. If it seems OK, you can implement it using your new powers :) Thanks. Rd232 (talk) 18:39, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Thank you. That's a great idea. The downside was that on Special:Preferences {{FULLPAGENAME}} and {{BASEPAGENAME}} point to Special:Preferences, not the MW-messages. Therefore I added a self/base-parameter to all English descriptions. Ich weiß nicht, ob es einen Trick gibt, um das leichter zu lösen... -- RE rillke questions? 12:30, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
Danke, dass du dies und andere Probleme mit dem Code gelöst hast! Es freut mich, dass die Idee so schnell in funktionierender Form zu sehen ist. Hast du übrigens eine Meinung zu {{Gadget-talk}} und {{Gadget-help}}? Ich bin nicht total zufrieden mit ihnen. Rd232 (talk) 14:08, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
Oh, I've just added an instruction to {{Gadget-translation-editintro}} to change the "self" parameter in translations. Now I'm not sure if that's correct... Should the self/base be the same in all language versions? Rd232 (talk) 14:10, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
Alle Achtung. Ich bin beeindruckt, dass Du Deine guten Ideen so systematisch und mit einer solchen Kontinuität umsetzt.
Template:Gadget-help: Für Scriptprobleme habe ich speziell Commons:User Scripts geschaffen, das aber keiner findet und auch keiner benutzt. Das sollte den "Devs" ersparen die Village-Pump-Diskussionen zu durchforsten. Natürlich ist Helpdesk gerade bei Fragen von Neulingen auch angebracht, da deren Fragen häufig von auch erfahrenen Nutzern beantwortet werden können.
Wenn Du mir noch verrätst, womit Du nicht zufrieden bist, könnte ich sicher gezielter helfen.
{{Gadget-help}} sollte evtl. noch eine Möglichkeit zur automatischen Übersetzung bieten.
For our purposes it's not of importance. But if someone else wants to implement something with it, it is desirable to have the full path. -- RE rillke questions? 15:43, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, I think we're about there (though maybe the vertical spacing between the boxes could be slightly less). And the template coding is rather hard to unravel; I'm tempted to wonder if it wouldn't be worth using one or two helper templates to make it easier to understand/maintain. (And it'll be even worse once someone gets round to internationalising it.) One thing remains: {{lang links}} insists on providing an edit link which doesn't work in this context. Can you edit it to provide an optional parameter which removes that edit link? Thanks. PS {{Gadget-translatelabel}} could use a {{documentation}} link in it. Rd232 (talk) 13:58, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
Uebrigens... "automatische Übersetzung"? Etwa eine Variante von MediaWiki:Gadget-GoogleTranslate.js, welches mit einem Knopfdruck die ganze Seite mit Google Translate uebersetzt? Das koennte generell ein nuetzliches Gadget sein. (Na gut, du meintest warscheinlich {{Autotranslate}}.) Rd232 (talk) 14:07, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘

  • vertical spacing between the boxes - ✓ Done
  • providing an edit link which doesn't work in this context ✓ Done: (+/- removed)
  • {{Gadget-translatelabel}} has now {{documentation}}

Natürlich war autotranslate, langswitch über ein template oder ein anderes Verfahren gemeint. Meinst Du wir sollten Neulinge auf das Google-Translate-Gadget hinweisen? Dann sollten aber Abkürzungen wie DR oder Copyvio vorher expandiert werden. -- RE rillke questions? 08:46, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Danke. Kleiner Schreibfehler: supressaddlink -> suppressaddlink. Nee, was ich meinte war ein Knopf, der Google Translate bittet, sowas zu machen: [36]. Das sollte relativ einfach sein. Man koennte es sogar mit einer Vorlage schaffen (aber als Gadget, auf jeder Seite nutzbar, waere besser). Abkürzungen zu expandieren ist schon was ganz Anderes. Uebrigens, ich versuche {{Gadget-translatelabel}} von {{Gadget-talk}} einzubinden, und es klappt irgendwie nicht. :( Rd232 (talk) 12:41, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Ups. Danke für den Hinweis. Irgendwie bin ich ein bisschen schwer von Begriff: Wo soll der Knopf hin? Nur in speziellen Vorlagen oder generell in die Tool-Box? Knopf.
Wo klappt denn die Einbindung nicht? Das sieht doch gut aus? Oder nicht? Grüße -- RE rillke questions? 14:08, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Ha, die Einbindung klappt doch, ich habe nur den Link vermisst weil meine Interfacesprache normalerweise English ist. Aetsch, Zeit fuer Kaffee! :) Mit dem Knopf: ja, als Gadget wuerde es im Toolbox Sinn machen. Als Vorlage koennte es zusaetzlich angewandt werden wo es vielleicht besonders nuetzlich sein wuerde, vor allem weil Benutzer die nicht eingeloggt sind das Gadget nicht nutzen koennen. Das waeren also zum Beispiel Hilfeseiten fuer Gadgets oder kritische Seiten im Commons: namespace. Der Knopf wuerde natuerlich nur eingeblendet werden wenn eine echte Uebersetzung nicht zur Verfuegung steht. Rd232 (talk) 14:19, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Ja, übertreibe es nicht mit der Arbeit hier ;-) Soll ich die Vorlage erstellen oder bist Du schon am Basteln? -- RE rillke questions? 16:50, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
{{Google translate}} scheint zu funktionieren, zumindest of kuerzeren Seiten (Google Translate hat ein unklares Limit, wieviel Paragraphen oder Woerter oder Buchstaben es uebersetzt). Ich bin aber nicht ganz sicher, ob es effizienter sein koennte; ich habe eine Liste aller Sprachen erstellt die Google Translate kennt. Ich konnte mir ohne das nicht ausrechnen was mit GetFallback passieren wuerde. Na ja, die Logik ist jetzt da; hast du lust, ein simples Gadget daraus zu bauen? Oder vielleicht auch etwas komplizierteres, welches versucht den Limit durch den Translate API zu umgehen... Rd232 (talk) 19:46, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
en:User:TachyonJack/gTranslate.js und en:User:AnonEMouse/translators.js koennen hier nuetzlich sein. Rd232 (talk) 02:39, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Hm, you can probably tell what I was trying to do at {{Install script}}; I think it needs Javascript, unless you have a bright idea. Rd232 (talk) 03:38, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Das alte Translate-gadget wird seine Arbeit sowieso am 1. Dezember diesen Jahres einstellen. Also muss was neues her.

Die Frage ist, ob wir es uns einfach machen und das hier verwenden. Ich weiß leider nicht, ob das mit der Datenschutzrichtlinie der WMF in Übereinstimmung zu bringen ist. en:User:TachyonJack/gTranslate.js und en:User:AnonEMouse/translators.js könnten auch Lösungen sein, ja. Man müsste sie aber gründlich aktualisieren, da sie veraltet und ungepflegt scheinen.

Es gibt sicher noch andere Services, die eine Übersetzung anbieten. Die meisten modernen Browser haben für sowas aber Add-Ons, so dass ich keine Lust habe, dort enormen Arbeitsaufwand zu investieren.

Concerning {{Install script}}, I would suggest to create an /install.js on every script page as a subpage and using this approach to preload this code. I am sure you already found "EasyInstall". I am going to test whether this would work. -- RE rillke questions? 17:27, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Seems to work. Fantastic! I tried it at MediaWiki talk:Category from gallery.js. I was just wondering though if there was a way to avoid creating lots of very similar subpages, using withJS, where a Javascript script could write a standard inclusion into common.js (and perhaps also check if it's already there). It would be a bit like MediaWiki:Botcheck.js (invoked eg by clicking a link from {{Duplicate/en}}). Rd232 (talk) 20:36, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Good idea. I think that's possible. Checking whether it is already installed is a bit more tricky but also fast. What I will definitely not include is autosave. That's too dangerous (there are still some script doing this...). I will be very busy the next days, so it can take a while... -- RE rillke questions? 22:07, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Mit withJS= geht es nicht. Das ist aber aus Sicherheitsgründen auch gut so. (Server result 303: Moved). Man könnte es noch ganz anders, nämlich mit XHR machen. Mal sehen... -- RE rillke questions? 22:22, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
OK. I had a feeling security restrictions might (and should!) be an issue. I'll wait a bit then to see if you can come up with something. It would be very cool, and could be copied to other wikis too. Rd232 (talk) 12:51, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

I'm a little confused[edit]

Hi Rillke, Thanks for your trust to give me license reviewing permission. While reviewing Fairrington's images, I was doubtful if user fairrington on flickr is the real American artist, w:David Fairrington, or just a fake name. I noticed User:Denniss has confirmed some of his files (1) but User:Mmxx has requested an OTRS for some of them (2). I'm now a little confused what to do? request an OTRS or keep reviewing them? AMERICOPHILE 20:26, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes that's difficult. I thought about whether I should review them or not. Let's see what OTRS will unveil. There are still enough other images to be reviewed. Thanks for your work! -- RE rillke questions? 20:39, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Autopatrolled[edit]

Hello Rainer, thanks for this property, but what can I do in this property? --MyCanon (talk) 00:16, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Hello MyCanon, I assigned this usergroup to your account because it is unlikely that you will vandalize or upload unfree files. It shows that you are trusted. You can request more rights on COM:RFR but you have to accept if an admin refuses handing out the requested right.
Autopatrolled users do not appear in our unpatrolled recent changes. This is beneficial to find vandalism. Kind regards -- RE rillke questions? 10:13, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
There is actually {{Autopatrolgiven}}. I've tidied these templates into Category:User rights message templates. Rd232 (talk) 11:55, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
This category is pretty useful. I wasn't aware of it. Thanks -- RE rillke questions? 12:08, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
I just created it in response to this thread. :) Rd232 (talk) 13:02, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
Simple answer: you can't do anything. Giving trusted users the autopatrolled right is essentially a benefit to vandalism patrollers, in reducing the number of edits/uploads they need to check. Per Commons:Autopatrollers#Autopatrolled: "This reduces the backlog of Newpage, Commons:Anonymous edits and Commons:Recent uploads patrol." Rd232 (talk) 11:31, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
Urghh, Rd232, du wärst ein schlechter Verkäufer ;-) P.S. Ich weiß ja, dass es eigentlich editinterface ist was Du brauchst, montan ist das aber leider nicht lieferbar. Deshalb können Sie aus unserer vielfältigen Produktpalette zum günstigen Preis wählen: Möchtest Du Kontrolleur, Zurücksetzer oder Dateiverschieber werden?

Scripts to ease the task[edit]

Bon soir Kyro,

das ist ja toll, ich kann gleich auf Deutsch weiterschreiben: Ich sehe, dass Du Löschanträge immer noch manuell anlegst. Das ist Ok, aber wenn es schneller gegen soll, kannst Du einfach den "nominate for deletion"-link in Deiner "Tool-box" benutzen. Außerdem gibt es ein Gadget, Quick Delete, das es erleichtert Copyvios und Bilder ohne Quelle od. Lizenz zu kennzeichnen und die Uploader zu benachrichtigen. Generell kann sich ein Blick in unser Gadget-Sortiment auszahlen. -- RE rillke questions? 18:51, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi Rillke, I made a request at administrators' noticeboard to be exempted of IP block. Apparently User:Jameslwoodward is inclined to do it but he wants to another admin agree to my request too.

Category/file move tab[edit]

Based on the discussion at Commons:VP#hijacking_of_the_members_of_a_category I think it's worth exploring a script which adds a Move tab to categories and file pages. That tab wouldn't do any actual moving, but would offer the user the range of options that exist for handling move issues. I've made User:Rd232/Catmove and User:Rd232/Filemove as first drafts of what a 'move tab' script might offer the user as choices. I know you've got loads on your plate already... and it needs some community approval to even create a gadget (ultimately, I'd like it to be an on-by-default gadget). At this point, can you just indicate how easy or difficult you think it might be to do? And whether you think it's a good idea? Rd232 (talk) 10:19, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes, something like that was already on my to do list. It always depends on how smart the tool should be.
I heard about admins on en.wp that are bored and delete pages just because a particular user created them instead of evaluating the content. Maybe we can poach some useful users from en.wp? Additionally you could have something from my plate. Ich teile gerne. Just go to COM:RFA. -- RE rillke questions? 11:20, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

But a good and the right one :-). Finally. Don't worry if you get contras from some users from a specific country Of course this a subjective impression. They don't like it if they are asked why they voted for or against something. Even if the adminship fails (what I do not think and hope), you are always welcome to "bother" me! I hope I didn't unintentionally convey something else. Best Regards -- RE rillke questions? 19:00, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
"I hope I didn't unintentionally convey something else. " - not at all, but I've been feeling a bit guilty about bothering admins for many things I could easily do myself if I only had the tools. Rd232 (talk) 19:39, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

User:FlickreviewR[edit]

Hi Rillke, I know that this bot reviews some images and reuploades a higher resolution if possible (example), but what about images that need a human review? Does the bot still reuploades a higher resolution or it's my duty (absolutely moral duty!) to do it? for example when reviewing this image, Is it my duty to replace image by its original size from Flickr or FlickreviewR's? What about the crops? Can FlickreviewR determine a crop and reuploade the original image (after cropping)? (example). Thanks AMERICOPHILE 21:53, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

It is not your duty. You "just" have to ensure the copyright-status is right. If it is difficult for you to upload, just don't do it. If I encounter an image that isn't a crop, I upload the full resolution, but often forget to ask the original uploader to do so in future, which we should do. (but this could be also part of an automated script...). FlickreviewR is only uploading the full resolution in some rare cases.r (I think if it finds that the user uploaded one of the smaller photos offered by Flickr.) If never seen it overwriting a cropped image and you should not do this, too. One possibility is to upload the original in this case and link the images to each other. -- RE rillke questions? 22:21, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Partially only. Just look what I have in my User:Rillke/common.css and try it in your common.css. Tell me what you think about. One thing that I have no solution for is the left/right margin. If you put it in common.css and change to a rtl-language like ?uselang=fa, the server exchanges right and left. Therefore I set it to 0. -- RE rillke questions? 16:10, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
Those changes to CSS do make {{#babel: ...}} look more like default {{Babel}}!

Closing undeletion requests[edit]

Hi - I was wondering if you knew anyone who might write a script to allow closing of undeletion requests ;) Either folk do not know what to do or don't bother but if it were easier maybe the page would stay shorter and we could focus better on the ones that need attention. Best --Herby talk thyme 11:11, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I had did a fast evaluation and found that the page-structure is totally different from the deletion requests (no sub pages, h2 headings, no daily pages). DieBuche and Lupo, the authors of MediaWiki:Gadget-DelReqHandler.js seem to be very busy. Me, too. The question is whether we restructure the procedure or write something completely new. When restructuring, we have the problem that DRBot must process the list... Everything leads into hard work. We have a long list but no volunteers: Commons:User scripts :-( -- RE rillke questions? 14:25, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
OK - thanks for your time and thoughts. --Herby talk thyme 15:13, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
This thought crossed my mind very recently as well... it would be better if UDEL had the same structure as DR. But that means changing DRBot (albeit a minor change, if the structure is made exactly parallel), and its author (User:Bryan) hasn't been heard from in 9 months :( ... The alternative is to do without the bot and ask people to add entries to the daily list manually, and then manually remove the daily list from UDEL once all entries have been closed. Last I checked en.wp used something like this for their AFD system. It would be better than the status quo, I think; not being able to watch individual UDEL entries is a burden. And if the structure is made parallel, it'll be easier for DelReqHandler to be adapted to cover UDEL. Rd232 (talk) 18:57, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

fullurl: {{{1}}} at Template:Image_permission/en[edit]

Hallo Rillke, fullurl: {{{1}}} at Template:Image_permission/en seems wrong to me (and probably to most users). It produces a relative URL (//commons...) which isn't really useful (not clickable if simply pasted and why at all a external link? Why not [[:File:foobar]]? Thanks for explaining! :) Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 23:51, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

"please include the URL of the image as located on Wikimedia Commons for which you are providing permission"
You are welcome. -- RE rillke questions? 09:21, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
If it is really intended for OTRS then it should be canonicalurl instead of fullurl to include a protocol (clickable links in emails and no strange look for non-techies). But it is given in the sentence about COM:UNDEL where a wikilink would make more sense. Don't you think? Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 17:20, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
Then simply fix it. You may consider transcluding {{Post undeletion request|file}}. But I fear it is a worse idea. It will course lots of nonsense-requests. -- RE rillke questions? 17:45, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
If I didn't know that you had inserted the link I would have fixed / changed it. :-D I just thought that you already made you mind up about which template to use and why not a wikilink. Well, I will then change it to [[:{{{1}}}]]. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 20:39, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Category gadget[edit]

I'm looking at MediaWiki:Gadget-Long-Image-Names-in-Categories.js and thinking, maybe using the same approach we could have some very simple filtering by file type? Maybe a script could parse the filename, and hide images which don't match the specified type? A little button for that on every category would be useful, and not server-heavy.

Brilliant, works very nicely on categories. It just needs to default the select to the "all" entry (currently it shows "jpg" to begin with, when it's actually "all"). However on new files, and other galleries, it just seems to show "all" in the select. Perhaps we don't really need it on galleries anyway? A little icon would be nice. Beyond that, I don't think it needs anything else to "go live" in the Preferences. Rd232 (talk) 18:25, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

IndaReview bot[edit]

Dear Admin Rillke,

I hope your IndaReview bot will soon be fully operational and mark most or all the images in the backlogged Indafoto review category after going through its first test run smoothly. I had talked to MGA73 about the need to create a bot to review all the Indafoto images here recently and he did not disagree at all. It does not matter who creates the bot as long as it reviews Indafoto images. Best Wishes, --Leoboudv (talk) 05:08, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: Maybe your bot can run 100% in the future on the remaining Indafoto images before people change licenses. Samat got a few licensed freely again as he says here. I told MGA73 about them. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 22:38, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Answer to license review question[edit]

Hello again, Rillke

I think it will be better if I answer here. I should have told this before. First, I want to say that I'm really Blue Marble. And I think when you asked me in the license review page and mentioned about me here, you may think that this account belongs to me. And you know what, the reason I quited the previous account is not because Jcb at all. Actually, I have been addicted to Commons and it has messed up my study while I had 2 big exams in the period from 31st October to 14th November. Also, I requested a block to think about managing the time properly. Since I failed at my RfA so I wondered if I can be here or not. And I decided to continue working here (although I am rather active now). I want to start all over again. I want to have my LR rights back to review image and help reducing the backlog. Please don't consider that it is a sockpuppet. This will be my primary account and I prefer to be called by this name (you can request for checkuser for sure). I think I can be trust again. Best regards, my friend--Morning Sunshine (talk) 16:38, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Yes, a sock but not used in an abusive way. No worries. -- RE rillke questions? 09:41, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Now I can start reviewing images again. I have have my previous account redirected to this one. But I have another question about your Flickr review script. How to use it?--Morning Sunshine (talk) 15:24, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
I replied on your talk page. -- RE rillke questions? 15:48, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

The (now) free images[edit]

Would you or MGA73 please mark these images that Samat got re-licensed freely? I don't have the license review pass/fail bot on my computer--only flickr review pass/fail bot. And there are no current templates for marking Indafoto images. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:53, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

User messages[edit]

My user messages have disappeared - any idea why? --Herby talk thyme 13:29, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

  1. Please first, Please purge your browser’s cache . (You only need to do it once.)

Internet Explorer: press Ctrl+F5, Firefox: hold down Shift while clicking Reload (or press STRG+ Shift+R), Opera/Konqueror: press F5, Safari: hold down Shift+alt while clicking Reload, Chrome: hold down Shift while clicking Reload

  1. Then, look for a "notify this user" link.
  2. If you really need the all the links back (the filter-box inside the gadget is very convenient), follow Help:Gadget-UserMessages#Custom settings, thus adding
window.installOldLinks = true;
to your User:Herbythyme/common.js or User:Herbythyme/monobook.js, if you use this skin
  1. I announced this exchange more than one time and currently on COM:VP.
  2. I hope you feel not angry. -- RE rillke questions? 13:38, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
Maybe a watchlist notice would be appropriate? It is a surprising change of behaviour. Rd232 (talk) 13:42, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Rd232 - as someone who spends time notifying users are things finding it had gone was very frustrating. I'll look at it but it looks like there will be additional clicks to be made which does not speed up the process sadly. --Herby talk thyme 13:47, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
One enter more is required, yes. On the other hand, you are now protected from malicious links and have the link(s) available on the contribs and log-page too. But there are a lot of other improvements: Like the speed after you clicked on "add template", the script does not switch in edit mode, instead a fast API-call is used.
✓ Done for en. -- RE rillke questions? 14:06, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

FWIW, the new behaviour makes a lot more sense to me than the old one. Filling up the toolbar with links was messy, and having some of the links automatically leave messages without any confirmation was not a good behaviour. Transition, however, always involves friction for, and perhaps from, people used to the old way. Rd232 (talk) 14:22, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

That's why the old script added a symbol to each user page with a tool tip that it will be updated and a link to the section discussing the update or asking questions. Revision of MediaWiki:Gadget-UserMessages.js
And I raised it multiple times in COM:VPP / COM:VP.
Hopefully not that much friction that the update will go up in flames. Thanks for your tweak to the watchlist message! -- RE rillke questions? 14:36, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
I notice (for example) that the edit summary with the out of scope template has now become "Please do not upload out of scope media." In many instances I am deleted pages not uploads so if the user looks at the edit summary they may be more confused - I do realise that there is a parameter for the page/file but if they have only one contribution that is out of scope it saves time not to bother with the parameter (previously it just said "Adding template "Project scope" to inform user"). --Herby talk thyme 14:56, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
I was happy to fix this. It now says "Please do not create ...". As long as script does not complain, the fields are optional. -- RE rillke questions? 15:23, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
Did you change any other edit summaries in setting this up (& was it discussed - if so apologies)? --Herby talk thyme 15:27, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes I did so. No, it wasn't discussed in detail. Since I got no bad feedback from about 7 active users who tested it for at least 3 months, I assumed the messages would be Ok. I know it is a bad feeling if you click somewhere and you do not know what it produces - and you cannot revert. However, the messages changed because I had the feeling summaries like "adding Test2 to inform the user" or "adding template Dont remove nsd or nld to inform the user" or even "adding template Copyvionote|File:Example.jpg to inform the user" is not very descriptive. I would be happy to discuss the new messages. I am going to make a list. -- RE rillke questions? 15:46, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

  2. In deiner User:Brackenheim/monobook.js hast Du es ja schon. Also verwendest Du Monobook als Skin.
  3. Wenn Du die Seite besuchst, werden theoretisch unter die Gallerieboxen 2 Links eingefügt: "-Exif, -list" (entfernt den Eintrag aus der Liste und beauftragt Rotatebot, das Exif-Orientierungs-Bit zurückzusetzen) und "rm from list only" (entfernt den Eintrag aus der Liste).

Messing with image?[edit]

What did you do here and why? This image was correctly - vertically - uploaded by me and correctly - vertically - displayed both here and in the Swedish WP article last time I saw these pages. Then what happened? And how long will the Swedish article look awful? SergeWoodzing (talk) 02:35, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

See Commons:Village_pump#Why has an image rotated without being told to do so.3F ––Denniss (talk) 02:45, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! So now I spent a lot of time reading thtough all that and am no wiser for it. I don't understand the technical jingo, don't understand why this happened and don't know what is going to be done about correcting all the errors - I looked through my uploads and found 4 more so far. SergeWoodzing (talk) 03:04, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
In short - Your images have EXIF-/Metadata with the wrong image orientation information (image linked has 90 degrees counter-clockwise rotation info stored). Longer: This info was ignored by the MediaWiki Software until early October 2011. With the release of version 1.18 the orientation info is used to rotate images on-the-fly. This was probably done without further investigation about the consequences (some recent searchs suggest about 60000 images have this problem and need to be rotated). The bot currently used for the task, User:Rotatebot, was barely able to get all the images done and accumulated a huge backlog but steady improvements raised it's speed. At the moment the backlog is just over 24 hours so an image tagged for rotation today will be rotated and reuploaded tomorrow. I have tagged your other four images for rotation (what Rillke actually did for the linked image). --Denniss (talk) 03:27, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Thank you again! I am using the rotate tag for a few more I've found. SergeWoodzing (talk) 03:31, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
PS when you say "the wrong image orientation information" does that mean that the owner of the brand new camera should complain to the shop that sold it? SergeWoodzing (talk) 03:33, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
If you have a new camera that saves the orientation with the photo, you often see this when previewing the image in the camera. Portrait images are then shown correctly. After transferring the image to your computer, Windows users, however encounter that they have to rotate their image because most Microsoft Software is ignoring this information. Therefore they do so. But Microsoft Software only rotates the image but does not remove the information that the image has to be rotated. After uploading to a MediaWiki-Wiki, the image is double-rotated. So if your camera supports automated image-orientation and you did not rotate the image on your computer manually, you should complain or better ask. The superior solution is always being friendly but strenuous. You will achieve more. And sometimes it is a good idea to do a search. I am not responsible for "the mess", I just try to reduce it as fast as possible. Regards -- RE rillke questions? 10:57, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

I just told you the facts. But you are at the wrong place if you want to complain about a MediaWiki-issue. I did not make it and I try minimizing the impacts. If more complaints are reaching my talk-page, I will immediately stop tagging images and will not invest one minute in fixing other's images. That's my last word as I lost more time due to this issue than most uploaders while neither being responsible nor having own wrongly orientated uploads: I wrote and maintained RotateLink, tagged lots of images in order to restore their right orientation and answered lots of question about this issue. The same is true for Saibo, Denniss, Stefan4, Luxo, Jonkerz, Brackenheim and even Docu. BTW, thank you Denniss for caring for the questions on my talk-page. -- RE rillke questions? 16:55, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Who's complaining? I sincerely appreciate and thank you for all the great work you and others are doing to try to fix these images. None of the 6 I reported have been fixed yet, by the way. I guess 24 hours need to go by? Last time I wrote here, I asked you a question, because I'd like to know. You chose not to answer it. That's your prerogative. All the images were OK before, and I still don't (really need to) understand how they got screwed up. If anyone/thing on the uploader's end is at fault, it would just be nice to know. SergeWoodzing (talk) 17:09, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Ok, if you rotated your photos with a software despite your camera added Exif-Orientation tags, the mistake is at your side from the point of MediaWiki. This is not my point of view. It was intended as a feature: Plug your cam into the USB-Hub and upload directly without caring about the orientation. -- RE rillke questions? 17:46, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you! How objectionable of MediaWiki to blame the uploader, who could not reasonably know that images once uploaded to Commons and fine suddenly, often years later, would be turned on their sides! It's sort of like a waitress blaming a customer for a sudden fly in soup that never had a fly in it before. Terrible attitude. SergeWoodzing (talk) 17:53, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Bad rotations[edit]

Please do not rotate vertical images so that they appear sideways. I have spotted at least four images that were correctly vertical, but are now all sideways. --EncycloPetey (talk) 04:05, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Is this when that happened, if so manually, in that case? SergeWoodzing (talk) 06:17, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Resetexif is a parameter used when the thumbnail image is rotated but the full resolution image is in the correct orientation. Otherwise please use the rotation by degree. TIP: enable the gadget Rotatelink in your preferences, has some nice functions including a preview image of the rotation effects.. --Denniss (talk) 06:26, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Which files? File:Acacia cultriformis2.jpg? or File:Ancyloceras coquandi.jpg this one? It is possible that I clicked the wrong button. But 4 times? Just click on revert in the file-history. -- RE rillke questions? 11:10, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
File:CAS Nereocystis 1.JPG‎, File:CAS Macrocystis 2.JPG‎, File:CAS Macrocystis 4.JPG, and it seems I miscounted and there are only three. All three used to display correctly, but then did not. Now, they do again. I tried to understand the notice pasted into the image, but it was only partly in English and included words that I have no familiarity with (as a dictionary writer). It might as well have been written in Sanskrit. --EncycloPetey (talk) 22:06, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Well. Then I am happy to tell you that I was not responsible for the wrong rotations but that it now shows up right. Do not blame other users if you do not understand the message. Just look one section above or at COM:ROTATEFIX or search. BTW: The messages you see here are not created by bots. Humans translate them and you are welcome to do so for your native language. Regards and thanks for your contributions -- RE rillke questions? 22:22, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
If I understood it, I would be able to translate it. The template text contained cryptic words I did not understand. I followed the template's link to Commons:Media_for_cleanup#Sideways_pictures_or_pictures_with_noticeable_camera_tilt, which again included words like "block boundary", "lossless rotation", "exiftran", and "Geeqie". This did not explain anything; it only added to my confusion. --EncycloPetey (talk) 02:46, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
I've edited that page, moving the tech details to a footnote and hopefully explaining them a little better. Rd232 (talk) 05:38, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

User:Rillke/RotateIt.js bug[edit]

Your script contains a bug: if there is just an image, but no file information page, the text "-Exif; -list" changes into "working..." and shows that message forever, without requesting rotation and without removing the "working..." message. I observed this problem at File:Portón de Maderuelo.jpg (where I immediately added a file information page).

This also shows another interesting feature: if there is no file information page, the bots which tag images with "no source" and "no licence" won't find the image and won't tag it. --Stefan4 (talk) 18:26, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Visit User:Umherirrender/EXIF rotation and Please purge your browser’s cache . (You only need to do it once.)

Internet Explorer: press Ctrl+F5, Firefox: hold down Shift while clicking Reload (or press STRG+ Shift+R), Opera/Konqueror: press F5, Safari: hold down Shift+alt while clicking Reload, Chrome: hold down Shift while clicking Reload.

The queue-display is now slightly green. Scipt just removes the image from the gallery if it is already tagged for rotation. Queue limit is now 36. Script now displays "Error!" when it does not find an image-description-page. -- RE rillke questions? 19:29, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

An issue with the "Nominate for deletion" in the toolbox in the left pane[edit]

If I say something that is clearly wrong and not part of a controversy, please feel free to fix it on sight, with, of course, some sort of notice to me. The edit here was perfect -- too many of our colleagues would have put a note on my talk page asking me to fix it, which might have been 24 hours later, leaving bad information hanging out there to embarrass me and misinform others.

In that spirit, may I suggest that on User:Rillke/Discuss, you change

  • "Click on a link below to attain my current discussion page" to something like
  • "Click on a link below to go to my current discussion page".

"Switch to" or "change to" would also be OK. "Attain" has a sense of accomplishment as in "attain a goal", that isn't needed when it's a simple thing. Compare

  • "he attained the top of Mount Everest", to
  • "he went to the house next door".

Needing help about Featured Images and the Picture of the day[edit]

Hey there, I recently captured Archaeological Museum Jamnagar through my camera as a part of small GLAM activity carried out single handed and created Lakhota Museum Jamnagar Gallery too, can you please have a look at it and see that if any of the picture is good for Picture of the Day or a Featured Picture? Also how does one nominate a picture for the same? Thanks. Rangilo Gujarati (talk) 17:27, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Ufff. I have to admit that I am more a technical admin than someone dealing with image-promotion. I never created a gallery but let's see whether this can change. So you may ask another user if my reply is dissatisfying.

You can at least nominate them as quality images. I don't think they will be featured, but as I said, I am not very experienced. Please read the guides there on how to add an image. We have also valued images. This is another possibility for your own photos if you think they show a specific matter better than all other images on Commons. The Picture of the day is choosen from the Featured pictures.

Other photos suffer from problems:

  • File:Double Barrel Muzzle Loading Rifle.JPG has reflections. I do not own one but I know that one can use a polarization filter to remove or emphazize them in lots of cases.
  • File:Pistol (For Women).JPG is too dark on the right side. You would need special equipment and a permission from the museum in order to put it in front of a neutral background to take a good photo.

You may follow the links I provided to find users who are more involved in the processes. Thanks for your contributions and I hope I could at least point you the the places where you'll get more help. -- RE rillke questions? 18:15, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, this is exactly what I wanted to know. Thank You. Rangilo Gujarati (talk) 22:25, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

HNY[edit]

Happy new year 01.svg

Hi Rillke, DR's are not as a problem as they where in my early days. This DR should be an example. But they are an annoyance both for users and I guess for admins when multiple instances of same issue are opened at several places. Best wishes...

--Nevit Dilmen (talk) 17:34, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I assume the user was not aware that one can make a "mass-deletion-request". I wish you a HNY, too. BTW, thanks for your contributions. Can you add descriptions to your X-ray-images? And I am curious, where do they come from? -- RE rillke questions? 22:08, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Deletion requests - Mass Deletion Request and Reason[edit]

  • Please be more specific. E.g. "copyvio" is insufficient. Why it is a copyright violation.
In which cases ? Please show samples concretely. I've provide evidence(s), when I opened DRs. At least, I've gave links to show evidence to prove copy violation. Maybe I forgot to provide it. If any, you can show samples. I'm ready for providing evidences. Because I've never opened groundless DRs.
  • Please discuss the same matter on one page. You may find COM:MASSDEL useful. I already got 2 complaints of long-term contributors. Of course they should respect the copyright instead of complaining but copyright is very complex. Discussing one matter on one page helps both, admins and the affected uploaders.
I assume that you mean DRs on violations of images taken in Harikalar Diyarı. Even if they are similar case, the situation of original copyrights are different. Original copyright of some images in Category:Harikalar Diyari (Harikalar Diyarı) had expired. In these case, according to the Turkish copyright law, we can redistribute them. If need, you can unify some DRs.
Long-term contributors mean neither experienced users, nor well-informed (especially about laws) user. And I don't prefer to the off-line communication. I've never accuse them. So I assume that they have no intention to abuse copyright and only don't know and/or misunderstood articles of laws, in accordance with Commons:Assume good faith. I recommend you not to focus on users, to focus cases, laws, and rules. And please don't ignore Commons:Assume good faith.
