"Category: Interior de São Paulo" (I, II, III, etc.)[edit]

Inside the Category:São Paulo, there is a lot of useless categories (unless there are a lot of images there), called Category:Interior de São Paulo, Category:Interior de São Paulo II, Category:Interior de São Paulo III etc. (up to XI!).

First of all, every single city which is not São Paulo city (São Paulo state capital) is "interior de São Paulo", so the existence of these categories makes no sense.

Second, such categories are named in Portuguese, instead of English.

I ask any robot to empty and delete such categories.

Thanks, and forgive my poor English. Yanguas (talk) 19:39, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Anyone? Yanguas (talk) 17:05, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
This could be done by anyone in a short time with Cat-a-lot. But someone who knows about São Paulo should probably verify that there isn't any information in the categorization that perhaps just isn't being expressed very well - do the different categories perhaps represent different regions of São Paulo?

Name and description change for a sequence of images[edit]

Hi, I uploaded a sequence of images from NASA site, which represents a simulation of binary neutron star coalescence. Unfortunately, I changed name during upload, and created a new category only aftermath. So if it is possible, I ask somebody to change names of files NS_merger_simulation_XXX.tif with XXX from 001 to 300 to NS_binary_merger_simulation_XXX.tif and change descriptions of them all to that one of NS_merger_simulation_001.tif. Thanks. --Melirius (talk) 03:51, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done, mostly. I moved the files (I didn't keep redirects since they didn't see needed - if you think they do, I'll add them) but I didn't understand the request to change the descriptions. What exactly do you mean by that? Could you edit one of the files in question as an example? sısɐuuǝɔıʌ∀ (diskuto) 19:30, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
I mean that you can just copy the full page of NS_binary_merger_simulation_001.tif to all these files, as I made by hand up to the number 079, as here. That is a sequence of images in the same simulation. And please change all the extensions to tiff or tif, because up to 100 it is tiff, then from 101 it is tif. Sorry. --Melirius (talk) 00:22, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
No worries. If it's no different to you, I'd rather move 101 and up to tiff, as that's the proper name for them (though this is purely personal preference, since we don't have a naming guideline/policy). I can move move 100 and down back to tif, though, if you prefer. I'll effect the other changes at the same time. sısɐuuǝɔıʌ∀ (diskuto) 08:08, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

renaming personal categories[edit]


I would like to have the renaming of my personal categories. Actually I just renamed my user profile (from "Agamitsudo" to "Benoît Prieur") and I'd like this category Category:Images by Agamitsudo renamed as Category:Images by Benoît Prieur. (I cannot do myself cause this reversal supposed to do a suppression). Moreover I'd like to have this replacement in the name of every subcategories -> "by Agamitsudo" replaced by "by Benoît Prieur".

Would be great if you can do that for me.

(actually I will have another request just afterward).

Thank you very much, --Benoît Prieur (d) 06:56, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

This can be done by just switching the category redirect templates around and waiting for a bot to move the files in the category. I'll try to get that sorted out a little bit later. sısɐuuǝɔıʌ∀ (diskuto) 19:32, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Hi sısɐuuǝɔıʌ∀,
Thank you for answering (I just read your answer).
Actually there was no hurry.
Finally I decided to do that by myself (was fun to do some PyWikiBot coding :)). Morever I received a spontaneous help from ‎Wieralee who I thank a lot again here.
So I think this current request can be considered as fixed.
Regards, --Benoît Prieur (d) 08:02, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
@Benoît Prieur: Editing 8 000 files with pywikibot without a bot flag is not a good idea, you're flooding watchlists and RC and your account act like an unauthorized bot account. Please create a request here next time or create a bot account. Thanks. Thibaut120094 (talk) 13:20, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
Ok sure. I understand. Actually it is done for this task; next time i will follow your advice.
Regards, --Benoît Prieur (d) 13:24, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
PS: can I ask a bot flag without a precise goal here and using it only when needing (f.e renaming something in every file in a given category)? Where can I ask it?
You should ask at Commons:Bots/Requests. In the past it was easier to get bot flag without a precise goal, see for example Commons:Bots/Requests/JarektBot, but I think it might be harder now. --Jarekt (talk) 14:23, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Some images needs licence[edit]

Hi (still me^^).

Some of my images had licences provided by this credit template [1]. It was a mistake as explained here [2]: as suggested by User:Denniss I do here this request.

I'd like a bot loops recursively into my category Category:Images by Benoît Prieur and adds if neccessary (if it lacks actually) the good licence. I would like this stuff to be added:

== Tag *.svg.png files {{[[Template:Should be SVG|Should be SVG]]}}} == Probably is the correct action, [[User:Dispenser/Double extension|double extensions list]] (350+ files), and would be nice to notify the uploader. [[User:Dispenser|Dispenser]] ([[User talk:Dispenser|<span class="signature-talk">{{int:Talkpagelinktext}}</span>]]) 18:14, 1 October 2015 (UTC) == <nowiki>#REDIRECT ''[[XXX]]'' ==

@Orchi: created many such pages, such as Macroclemys temminckii, Baptisia lecontei and Sobralia sessilis. There should be a bot to fix it.--GZWDer (talk) 12:51, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

What's the issue with these pages, and what would be the proposed fix? BMacZero (talk) 22:40, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I figured it out, you're talking about the italic marks ''. BMacZero (talk) 22:42, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
