Hi Steinsplitter, thanks for claiming our GWToolset whitelisting ticket. I wanted to introduce myself and check if there is anything we can do to help the process along. I'm at the State Library of North Carolina, where we've had some good support and encouragement from the folks at Wikimedia DC. We have been gathering our files and metadata in preparation for testing GWToolset on a collection of about 10,000 images. I'll be happy to answer any questions or concerns you have. - Rachel at NCandbeyond (talk) 15:43, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi :), We need to wait, only the Foundation Techs can merge patches (domain whitelist). Unfortunately this can take a few days. Sorry and thanks for your patience. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:38, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Images found on the web[edit]

Hello. Do you mind to look past File:1388626284042761100-74ae308a-06df-4758-92c1-1b5968af6c52-iPad 1400kbit 96 640x480 5470 9 splash.jpg when I betrækter it as an infringement of copyright. It is user Luffe1810 again put logos up he found online. --Søren1997 (talk // contributions) 20:26, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

I can see that he has put the logo up earlier but has also been deleted. --Søren1997 (talk // contributions) 20:30, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi, I blocked the account. Regards --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:31, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
thank you. He will obviously not learn. He is already blocked for 1 month from the Danish Wikipedia. --Søren1997 (talk // contributions) 20:45, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
If he continues after three days i will block him again for a longer period (a few months at least) --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:46, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
Now we'll see if he continues. I'll just watch. I give the message if he continues. --Søren1997 (talk // contributions) 20:49, 8 February 2015 (UTC)



Yes, I used Special:Log/import on en:Template:Chart. I hope that I've canceled most of my mistakes. I'm really sorry. Pyb (talk) 19:48, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

@~Pyb: Ok. Next time use it without the "Include all templates" (= recursive) function. Have a nice evening --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:52, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Erweiterte Rechte[edit]

Hallo Steinsplitter, danke für die Zurücksetzer und Kontrolleure Rechte. Gibt es einen Grund für die Ehre? --Arnd (talk) 14:36, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Dein Name taucht immer wieder auf meiner Watchlist auf :) --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:43, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Ok. Ich bin mal so frech und nutze die Gelegenheit zu fragen, ob du evtl. für dieses Problem eine Lösung hast? Es blockiert einerseits den JarektBot, der wichtig für das Aufräumen der Wikitexte für Structured data ist. Andererseits stellt er ein Konsistenzproblem dar, was nicht auftreten sollte. --Arnd (talk) 14:50, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Hmm... seltsam. Vieleicht ist bei der replication etwas kaputt. Sollte man vieleicht in phabricator melden? --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:33, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Ok, werde das bei Gelegenheit machen. --Arnd (talk) 07:12, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Rebecca Guay's photos[edit]

Hello good sir. I've sent you an e-mail regarding the photos you deleted from Wikimedia commons. Would really appreciate it if you could help me out regarding them, thanks. -Object404 (talk) 01:40, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Will look tomorrow into it. :) --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:19, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Uploads by Ursinx.[edit]

Hi, a jot over a week ago you deleted a number files uploaded by Ursinx as copyvios (example [1]). They were photos of game cubes sourced from an external website, the user asked on the Help Desk how to fill out the permissions ([2]), I responded but they did nothing and the files were deleted. It appears they have now re-uploaded the files but this time as 'own work' ([3]). Could you please re-delete the files warn them? ColonialGrid (talk) 19:12, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

✓OK --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:18, 13 February 2015 (UTC)


Ticket 2013122210006923. I said to Kyle:

Hi Kyle,
Always a pleasure to hear from you; just so I have it written explicitly in this email, and no one can challenge the images later, can you please confirm that by "the share & share alike license" you mean the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0 license ( and that you are happy to release this image, and future images you send to me, under that license?

His response:


If that's not enough for you, I don't know what is. J Milburn (talk) 17:55, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

@J Milburn: The full conversation should be archived in the OTRS system. This is now a new ticket number, in the old one it isn't explicitly written. Apart from that, this is not the kind of reply i expect from an OTRS member :(. Have a nice evening --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:04, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
The full conversation is archived in the OTRS system. If you want to link tickets more, be my guest, but I've no grand intention of doing so- it's all out there to find, and the tickets are pretty clear to anyone who reads them with any care. I really don't feel like engaging in pleasantries with you when you've "checked up" on my contributions when you disagree with me (or maybe it was just a coincidence?), left ridiculous challenges on my talk page, and reverted me without comment like I'm a common vandal. Unless I'm mistaken, we've never met before, yet you suddenly seem to be very anti-me. You'll have to excuse me if I don't take kindly to that... J Milburn (talk) 18:08, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
@J Milburn: Don't take it personal, it is just my instinct of having correct tickets. Face-smile.svg You complained on AN about the removal of your sysop tools because of inactivity, so don't be surprised that i looked how active you are. --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:15, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
Ok, I've calmed down a bit now. I'm sorry I told you to "fuck off"- that was out of order and unbecoming, whether or not I agree with you. J Milburn (talk) 18:49, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Smiley.svg Thank you[edit]

Happy to be a trusted user. -- ChristianFerrer 17:04, 18 February 2015 (UTC)


Is there a way you can make User:SteinsplitterBot/Possible copyvios/Recently uploaded a category? 1989 19:57, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes, but i don't plan to do so because it makes a lot of unnecessary edits. And it is difficult to check if someone removes the cat from a file. Regards --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:58, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Does Commons have an abuse filter about images being reviewed by non image reviewers? 1989 14:00, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Special:AbuseFilter/70 --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:02, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
Can admins view hidden abuse filters, or oversighters? 1989 14:04, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
The filter is tagging edits: Tag: License review by non-Image-reviewers --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:07, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. 1989 14:14, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Structured Data on Commons update[edit]


After a delay in updates to the Structured data on Commons project, I wanted to catch you up with what has been going on over the past three months. In short: The project is on hold, but that doesn't mean nothing is happening.

The meeting in Berlin in October provided the engineering teams with a lot to start on. Unfortunately the Structured Data on Commons project was put on hold not too long after this meeting. Development of the actual Structured data system for Commons will not begin until more resources can be allocated to it.

The Wikimedia Foundation and Wikimedia Germany have been working to improve the Wikidata query process on the back-end. This is designed to be a production-grade replacement of WikidataQuery integrated with search. The full project is described at will benefit the structured data project greatly since developing a high-level search for Commons is a desired goal of this project.

The Wikidata development team is working on the arbitrary access feature. Currently it's only possible to access items that are connected to the current page. So for example on Vincent van Gogh you can access the statements on Q5582, but you can't access these statements on Category:Vincent van Gogh or Creator:Vincent van Gogh. With arbitrary access enabled on Commons we no longer have this limitation. This opens up the possibility to use Wikidata data on Creator, Institution, Authority control and other templates instead of duplicating the data (what we do now). This will greatly enhance the usefulness of Wikidata for Commons.

To use the full potential of arbitrary access the Commons community needs to reimplement several templates in LUA. In LUA it's possible to use the local fields and fallback to Wikidata if it's not locally available. Help with this conversion is greatly appreciated. The different tasks are tracked in phabricator, see .

Volunteers are continuing to add data about artworks to Wikidata. Sometimes an institution website is used and sometimes data is being transfered from Commons to Wikidata. Wikidata now has almost 35.000 items about paintings. This is done as part of the WikiProject sum of all paintings. This helps us to learn how to d:Wikidata:WikiProject Visual arts/Item structuremodel and refine metadata about artworks. Experience that will of course be very useful for Commons too.

Additionally, the metadata cleanup drive continues to produce results. The drive, which is intended to identify files missing {{information}} or the like structured data fields and to add such fields when absent, has reduced the number of files missing information by almost 100,000 on Commons. You can help by looking for files with similarly-formatted description pages, and listing them at Commons:Bots/Work requests so that a bot can add the {{information}} template on them.

At the Amsterdam Hackathon in November 2014, a couple of different models were developed about how artwork can be viewed on the web using structured data from Wikidata. You can browse two examples here and here. These examples can give you an idea of the kind of data that file pages have the potential to display on-wiki in the future.

The Structured Data project is a long-term one, and the volunteers and staff will continue working together to provide the structure and support in the back-end toward front-end development. There are still many things to do to help advance the project, and I hope to have more news for you in the near future. Contact me any time with questions, comments, concerns.

Re: Pushing this policy into full effect[edit]

Hi. Btw, those opposes are for things not proposed in the proposal. I think they misunderstood the whole thing. Kind regards, Rehman 10:34, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi, OK :/. I saved the changes and noticed after saving that there are ((oppose)), therefore reverted. Greetings --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:36, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
Fingers-crossed we could finish this off soon and smoothly. Lets wait and see till about next weekend. By then we should have a solid and relevant outcome, hopefully :) Cheers, Rehman 10:46, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Sitenotice change[edit]

There is a mistake in my translation of sitenotice here [4].

Can you change it to |hr=U tijeku je drugi krug [[Commons:Picture_of_the_Year/2014/Introduction/hr|izbora za sliku godine 2014.]] u kojem možete glasovati za najviše 3 slike. [[Commons:Picture_of_the_Year/2014/Translations|Pomozite u '''prijevodu''']] ili [[Commons:POTY/2014|'''glasujte za sliku po Vašem izboru''']]. please?--MaGa 09:05, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

file rename[edit]

Hi Steinspliter,

I seem to disagree with this diff:

According to the guidlines the username UPPP.png is a nothing saying name, therefor it would be ok to move it to a suitable name. But I do agree with the fact that its useless to move a file tagged with speedy. Abigor talk 08:58, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Abigor, It is criterion #4: Files with copyright issues should NOT be renamed until copyright issues are resolved. There is no reason to rename a file if it is going to be deleted on copyright grounds. - Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 08:59, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi, whoops, missed that line. But like I said then I agree ;-) Abigor talk

sleep apnea[edit]

Hiya: I deleted an image you nominated from this gallery, but find many more like it. You had stated there was a google image for the one I speedied, but I thought you might like to see the piles and piles of other images in the series. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 23:44, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
