504 results. Please remove {{cc-by-4.0}}/{{cc-by-sa-4.0}} and replace it with {{Tasnim}}. - Alexis Jazz 05:02, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

267 results (some overlap with the previous link). Please add {{LicenseReview}} to the license section and Category:Tasnimnews review needed. The latter I could do myself, but somebody might start screaming when images start popping up there without {{LicenseReview}}. I don't know if reviewers can handle that.

Any instances of can be replaced with and with - Alexis Jazz 05:02, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

I guess this request has to be tackeled in batches. I have done the last part and took the liberty to strike it out. It will also be corrected on all future uploads. --Schlurcher (talk) 04:26, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

There are more, but it will be easier to find them after a bot has sorted these out. Obviously: the bot should be able to handle new names when Tasnim hires a new photographer.

After that is done: search for anything with the {{Tasnim}} template that is not yet in any of the "Photos by .. for Tasnim News Agency" categories or Category:Photos from not categorized by photographer and add it to Category:Photos from not categorized by photographer. - Alexis Jazz 07:23, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

This is not really bot work, it can be done with catalot. What are the daily numbers that may justify this as automated housekeeping? -- (talk) 08:11, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
The fact I don't want to run dozens of searches every day? - Alexis Jazz 08:14, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
Yes, some stats would help to encourage a bot writer to spend time setting this up. Six in a month is very different from ten a day. Thanks -- (talk) 08:32, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
Category:Photos from contains 13,554 photos right now. Nearly all of them need to be in a "Photos by .. for Tasnim News Agency" category and new photos are still uploaded every day. hastemplate:tasnim insource:"date: 2018-03" turns up 320 results which would suggest slightly over 10 a day, except that search is missing anything that uses a different date format so there may be more. I had started to initially fill categories with cat-a-lot, but this is taking forever and at some point point I will start to make mistakes. Better have a bot handle this and I can sort out wrongly credited photos. - Alexis Jazz 08:56, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Scanned with..[edit]

Remove {{hiddencat}} and __HIDDENCAT__.

✓  Done (with VisualFileChange) should have been done, but seemingly wasn't.. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 17:58, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
✓  Done and I am an idiot - Alexis Jazz ping plz 18:03, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

City Archive of Kiel[edit]

This Archiv has published round about 30 thousand pictures of Kiel under free licences, I think a bot should import them. Habitator terrae (talk) 16:55, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

Here are the pictures being at Commons. Habitator terrae (talk) 17:25, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

I'll take a look. The conventional place for a batch upload suggestion is at COM:BATCH. -- (talk) 15:44, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
OK, I will quest there. Habitator terrae (talk) 16:56, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Batch rename request[edit]

Please can someone rename my 41 images:


  • 'File:Armenian Railways Museum locomotive Эш705-46 + coach - 2018-05-18 - Andy Mabbett - 01.jpg', et seq

(That's "Эш" instead of "3ա"), or tell me of a tool that can use to do that. They are all in Category:Locomotive Эш705-46. Thank you. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:43, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

✓  Done 41 moves. I have a custom way of doing these, but someone did write a tool to do mass renames. It's in the archives of this noticeboard somewhere. -- (talk) 11:48, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
