We recently received permission to use all the images at dermnet on the commons. An OTRS ticket number has been assigned (#4599300), and template created for use with all these photos. so we need someone who can set up an automatic way to transfer the >23000 images from dermnet into Category:Cutaneous conditions? Thanks in advance! MaenK.A.Talk 15:48, 31 March 2010 (UTC)


  • Who should be attributed? Multichill (talk) 16:20, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
  • The one to attribute is Dr. Thomas Habif MaenK.A.Talk 16:39, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
  • I can improve the template, but what logo should we use?? we still dont have a project page for this batch upload like other examples you have on your sub-page MaenK.A.Talk 16:39, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Can you help us with this?? if you please?? MaenK.A.Talk 17:40, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
  • @Madhero88, perhaps you could create a Commons:Dermnet, similar to Commons:AntWeb or Commons:Tropenmuseum, and then work to improve our existing template? Also, maybe you could contact Dr. Habif and see if he would allow us to use the high resolution photos. If you do contact him, perhaps you could link over to the Commons:Dermnet page so he can watch over the process? Just some thoughts. ---Kilbad (talk) 23:26, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
  • here is a trial version of Commons:Dermnet, but still in my user space, feel free to edit that. for the sample on the left we can use either 1 or 2, or I can create other different possibilities. and about the higher resolution, I dont think the author would accept, since he sells higher resolution images on the site, and he only agreed to release images at this quality MaenK.A.Talk 16:20, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Shall I create a custom SVG header for the page?? MaenK.A.Talk 16:52, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Some thing like this, and here is an example of use, of course, I can change anything you suggest MaenK.A.Talk 17:46, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Looks good! ---Kilbad (talk) 12:13, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Please check out the others headers and tell me if I should replace the current one MaenK.A.Talk 22:06, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Do we even need a header image? ---Kilbad (talk) 14:03, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Why not, the page will look better :-)MaenK.A.Talk 15:12, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Sure, add it back in... no problems... ---Kilbad (talk) 17:40, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
  • @Whoever is going to be doing the batch uploading, what type of information/help do you need from the donor site,, to make the transfer happen?? ---Kilbad (talk) 23:28, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Could someone please follow-up on this? ---Kilbad (talk) 13:05, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

  • Please do not do this. We only have OTRS permission for 19 images. Owner of the website in question doesn't own any of the images. NO need for batch upload because we don't have permission. -Andrew c (talk) 20:17, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
