Discussion

I've done a test run of about 50 images. There are a couple of issues that I'm going to work on, for example missing creator biographies and including the OTRS ticket under permission. Profoss (talk) 22:45, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
Is it possible to generate better file names? Will be good idea to add category like Images from The Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage needing categories. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:38, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
Hi! well, I could use a different scheme, for example "Riksantikvaren (placename) (original filename).jpg The categories is defiantly something that needs to be done, Profoss (talk) 17:00, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
I'm currently trying to get higher res versions of the photos we have. But I was wondering if there is any other stumbling blocks for this bot request. Profoss (talk) 20:41, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
My recommendation would be to generate a filename of the style "Description - Riksantikvaren - original filename.jpg". So for example File:Riksantikvaren - T040 01 0060.jpg would become "File:Hovin kirke, Akershus - Riksantikvaren - T040 01 0060.jpg". Currently the link back to the original image goes via the search engine so for the Hovin kirke image the link is to http://kulturminnebilder.ra.no/fotoweb/default.fwx?search=Hovin. It would be better if the link could instead point directly to the image page using the permalink http://kulturminnebilder.ra.no/fotoweb/archives/5001-Kulturminnebilder/RA1_INDEKS/RA1/Topnummer/T040_01/T040_01_0060.tif. Is it possible to get that link out of the available metadata? /Lokal_Profil 19:52, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
Please repeat test run when you'll make bot code changes. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:21, 1 December 2013 (UTC)
EugeneZelenko Lovely, I'll do that early next week when I get my hands on the full quality images, and not the scaled down ones I got first. /Lokal, hmm, apparently the permlinks doesn't work that well, they don't follow the same pattern and are not defined in the metadata. I'm taking onboard the filename suggestion. Regards Profoss (talk) 17:56, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
@EugeneZelenko: Ok, I've started the second testrun with the new high resolution images, the new filenamestructure is a modification of what /Lokal suggested "Place - Riksantikvaren-original filename". The images are also automatically categorised in "Cultural heritage monuments in [Municipality]". I'll do a separate cleanup of the last testrun when all images has been uploaded. Profoss (talk) 00:46, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
Looks OK for me. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:46, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
@EugeneZelenko: Lovely, does that mean I can start full scale uploading? Profoss (talk) 16:57, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
I think will be good idea to wait for couple of days for other comments. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:33, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
Cool, I'll give it a week, and in the meantime start creating some of the missing creator templates. Profoss (talk) 16:01, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

If there are no objections, I think task should be approved. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:33, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
