  • I think will be good idea to reflect author information in image descriptions. Do you need OTRS status too? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:44, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
Hi. If possible, yes. (also temporary). --Alan (talk) 19:46, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
@Alan: Are the bot flag and the OTRS flag still required for this task? I see that the bot has over 2,700 edits, and a lot of uploads, so I think we can mark this as resolved? Apologies for the belated reply. odder (talk) 10:25, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
@Odder yes, but only bot flag. No longer need the OTRS flag. Cheers, Alan (talk) 11:44, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
@Alan, @-jem-: Thanks; I just had a look at five most recently uploaded pictures and have a few questions:
  1. Have you managed to fix the encoding problems visible on this page?
See bugzilla:57052. --Alan (talk) 13:00, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
@Alan: I'll take it as a yes, then :-) odder (talk) 14:34, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
  1. Could you automatically add all pictures uploaded through this bot to Category:All medias supported by Wikimedia España; I see that Diego has been adding it manually to those pictures I checked. (Note: this category might need to be renamed; media is the plural form for medium, but you might want to use files; anyway I digress a bit.)
Media -> Multimedia (synonymous). --Alan (talk) 12:50, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
@Alan: Apologies for not being clear enough; what I meant is that media should be used as a plural form for medium (rather than medias; see Wiktionary). This is, however, nothing that blocks this request, merely a sidenote. odder (talk) 14:34, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
  1. I also note that the aforementioned picture (and probably others as well) does not have any data inside the | Date = parameter; if that's because Fundación Joaquín Díaz does not have that information, please use | Date = {{unknown|date}}.
    This also needs to be fixed in those pictures already uploaded; I see that some of them include dates, but the bot did not recognize it, so it might need to be fixed manually.
  2. Could you please upload additional five pictures so we can make sure everything is in order? Thanks :-) odder (talk) 12:44, 5 February 2014 (UTC)


Ping: Rastrojo
@Odder For 3 last points, it's better wait to respond by Rastrojo. --Alan (talk) 14:41, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
Odder, just to clarify things on my side: As you can see in Bugzilla, finally the task was requested there and I just provided the data to use for the descriptions, not the bot code nor operation. After not just the encoding problem, but the point that things aren't checked after the first upload (as I would have done, of course), I think I'll take care personally in the future. What is missing is an «upgrade» to better resolution versions of the same pictures, and a verification of the license status for each one; everything is pending further contacts between Rastrojo and Fundación Joaquín Díaz, and then we (that is, I) could add that category after consensus about the name, and the date parameter (the received data was quite chaotic; there were some dates, but sometimes in one field, sometimes in another; sometimes it wasn't clear if it was the date the picture was taken, or the postcard was bought, or arrived to the Fundación... I just fixed the most important and visible problems, even if it wasn't my task; the data problems must be discussed with the Fundación, too). If I take over, I'll try my best that things are arranged properly, but I'm also considering to do all the work with my bot account, Jembot, and request the bot flag for it, as I was planning to do it in the future anyway, and I like things to be "clear". So, for the moment, this thread should be "on hold" until Rastrojo is back (I think he's having University examinations) and we decide how to proceed. Sorry for any inconveniences. -jem- (talk) 13:08, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
@-jem-: No inconvenience caused, and thank you for the clarification. I agree we should put this request on hold until Rastrojo can comment on it. odder (talk) 13:45, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Hi guys, I'm back. I would say that the preferable option is just to keep this request on "stand-by" for a while (I have to contact again Fundación Joaquín Díaz in order to get full resolution scans of the already uploaded pics... and this will take a couple of months). Sorry for these troubles. Best, Rastrojo (DES) 23:24, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Bureaucrat note: I'm placing this request Stop hand orange.svg on hold until Rastrojo comes back to us with more information. odder (talk) 22:18, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
  • I'm inclined to close this request in a week if there is no update on its state. Pinging @Rastrojo and @-jem- so they can comment on it. odder (talk) 16:16, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
    • Closing as  stale, then. odder (talk) 08:53, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
