Test Runs

  • Distributing WLM images for organizing committee (We concluded that categories are easier than gallery pages or dividing using filenames' first letters in main category)
    Looks OK for me. But does any human will pay attention to freedom of panorama (example: File:Mohyla Andriyova.jpg)? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:56, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
    yes, we shall pay attention to these files (and move the ones that are ok for wikipedia) --アンタナナ 15:03, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
  • fixing Ids and updating statistics
    but human's attention is not bot's task so let's not slow down this RfBf while speaking about all possible non-bot-related issues of WLM, please. ru: Но внимание людей это уже не задание бота, поэтому, давайте, пожалуйста, не затягивать эту заявку обсуждением всех возможных вопросов ВЛП которые к ботам, а особенно к конкретно этому не имеют отношения :) --BaseSat (talk) 15:33, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
    Could you please explain how IDs deduced in cases where there is no precise category added? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:56, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
    ASAIK it would fix IDs that we change in lists (so manually set task) and change in some other cases as when users put monument's protection document's number instead of ID - it would be set and checked manually as well. ru: Насколько мне известно бот будет менять идентификаторы которые мы будем заменять в списке (т.е. задание будет задаваться для конкретных случаев руками), а также изменять кривые айди в случаях, когда, например, участники вставляют номер решения о постановлении памятника на учет вместо того, чтобы вставить идентификатор. en: If i missed or misexplained some tasks - let botmaster clarify it :) --BaseSat (talk) 15:33, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
    We look at the images and try to understand what is pictured on them. If it is not what ID from WLM lists tells, we find correct ID in lists and run bot to fix --Ilya (talk) 15:37, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
    Actually Google image search can often find what is pictured in an image --Ilya (talk) 15:39, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
    So it means human review and it's reasonable. If Google search is not used by bot, it's irrelevant. But if humans will review images, it'll be good idea to nominate those which subject is not in public domain for deletion. Otherwise when such review will happens? :-) --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:41, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
    I think if we'll write bot which will be check using Google Images, we will use other account.--Anatoliy (talk) 15:49, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
    we will filter out images to the following categories: 1) irrelevant for WLM contest, but otherwise good pictures 2) irrelevant or bad quality images 3) possible NoFOP violations. This will be done by hand of course. --Ilya (talk) 15:57, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
