As was requested here, I'm requesting approval to upload corresponding "*.jpg" files for the "*.tif" files that are in Category:Files with broken file links which have {{NARA-image}} on their description pages.  Hazard-SJ  ✈  00:38, 17 July 2013 (UTC)


  • Please make a test run. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:36, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Would you mind if I take over? My script is ready. (lots of uploads, permission from Denniss[User_talk:Denniss#Bot]) --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 07:27, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
    Please use language templates for all text fields in description. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:43, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
    I see no need for this as they rarely get another language description. Better keep the job easy. --Denniss (talk) 22:22, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
    I don't see any significant complications :-) I think it's good idea to specify language in description, as well as it's standard practice. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:37, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
    Well, the description field is blank, so if I add them, it'll be Language templates with no text displayed --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 04:57, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
    Sorry, if I was ambiguous in terminology, but {{NARA-image-full}} has lot of fields which bot filled with English text without marking it with language template. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:17, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
    Can I use a seperate run? Both TIFF file and JPEG file doesn't have the templates. BTW, could you list the fields for the template? --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 08:18, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
    Just look on image descrioption page and what is written in English is should be marked as such :-) I think it's true for all fields except numerical, IDs and date. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:47, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
    Sorry, forgot about this. I'll code it tomorrow. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 17:34, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
  • I guess it would be better to just let Zhuyifei1999 fix his script and run it (he'd need his own request, though :P)  Hazard-SJ  ✈  00:15, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
    But your request is so cool that I don't even want to make one. :P --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 05:33, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
  • So, let me get this straight, nobody is going to do this because you both think the other person is cooler? :-) --99of9 (talk) 00:39, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
    It might be already done. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 10:00, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
Maybe change the goal a bit, go through all .tif images with the nara template and look for those without .jpg equivalent, compile a list to check and then upload JPGs. Could also be misused to revert the useless changes made by Fae to all/most the Tifs by readding back the cats from .jpg images. And yes, the NARA images have been fixed a long time ago. --Denniss (talk) 10:20, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

I suggest we close this as withdrawn/stale/outdated. --99of9 (talk) 10:36, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
