Commons File History Again![edit]

Hello Jeff -- Tell me I'm not crazy, but from here it looks as if the exact opposite bug has now appeared in Commons "file history" tables. I'm seeing comments for all the old versions of a file, but no comments for the current version. Maybe it's just a fleeting mid-maintenance bug of some kind, but I plan to step away from the project for a day or two and can't keep checking. Do you see it too? Regards -- WikiPedant (talk) 05:33, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

@WikiPedant: You are not crazy. I'm seeing it too. I reported it in phab:T175444#3607775.   — Jeff G. ツ 13:05, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
Hello Jeff -- Thanks for reporting this bug. Looks like they're still working on it. -- WikiPedant (talk) 00:28, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
@WikiPedant: You're welcome. Purge is your friend if you want a glimpse at what you're missing.   — Jeff G. ツ 01:59, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Your perplexing response to the GPL[edit]

I believe your vote at Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Battle for Wesnoth title screen has aimed to mislead the administrators into keeping the file or makes no regard to the license conditions, whether intentional/willful or not. The deletion request was never about proof of something previously being licensed under X or Y, but GPLv2+ license compliance. Those files being under GPLv2+ was already established in the previous deletion request.

Any proposals should not have their outcome dependent on the results of votes, but well made arguments. It's not a voting contest.

Please read. 2001:2003:54FA:2751:0:0:0:1 03:08, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

I'll get right on that.   — Jeff G. ツ 01:57, 17 September 2017 (UTC)


I undid the revisions on Admin's Noticeboard because my brother told me that he created the accounts to edit on Wikipedia. --Talk to Kong of Lasers 00:56, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

@Kong of Lasers: Ok, but please explain such edits in the edit summary, choose a different dream car photo for your userpage, and use your actual username in your signature.   — Jeff G. ツ 01:02, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Tell User:W.carter too then. And what's wrong with the photo? --Talk to Kong of Lasers 04:18, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
@Kong of Lasers: Please see User talk:W.carter#Signature. Your dream car photo File:Silver Ferrari Luxxury Sports Car.jpg has too many "x"'s, please try File:Silver Ferrari Luxury Sports Car.jpg.   — Jeff G. ツ 09:36, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

Personal attack on The Rejector?[edit]

I only wrote "What do you want to do?" on his user talk, because he had continued to vandalize. I did not use offensive words: he wrote that accusation in order to save him from being blocked!--Cats' photos (talk) 01:05, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

@Cats' photos: I wrote you about a different edit.   — Jeff G. ツ 01:10, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
The removal of the report about me on the Administrators' noticeboard/Vandalism? I made that modification, because The Rejector had removed my report, but your template is about personal attacks.--Cats' photos (talk) 01:21, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
@Cats' photos: I removed the template I had placed on your user talk page, as my point had been made. Ok?   — Jeff G. ツ 09:16, 19 September 2017 (UTC)


What is wrong with Kong of Lazers as my username? It's as not as unrecognizable as Mile or cart. --Talk to Kong of Lasers 00:53, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

@Kong of Lasers: "z".   — Jeff G. ツ 12:00, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

International Harvester trucks vs International trucks[edit]

Hello Jeff G.
I saw that you showed interest in the International Harvester trucks vs International trucks "affair". Feel free to give your opinion in the corresponding discussion.
Regards. -- BarnCas (talk) 04:21, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

@BarnCas: I did at Commons:Categories for discussion/2017/09/Category:International Harvester trucks#New merge target, I hope you like it.   — Jeff G. ツ 13:01, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your participation, this will hopefully bring some "fresh air" in this discussion. I just hope you won't be bashed by our "argumentative senior" (you shouldn't, normally, as you more or less support his idea) Clin. -- BarnCas (talk) 15:15, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Hello, I am the "argumentative senior". I stalked you from Commons, I didn't know anybody else had been here until I got here.

I am trying to start a discussion at: Are International Harvester trucks branded "International"? I would love it if you would stop by.

Warning! I posted this after I saw your opinion. I do not object in any way to you changing or modifying it. I would just like it. But of course it looks like I am recruiting like opinions, so please keep that in mind. If you don't want to get involved, don't. I won't ping you or anything, you don't even have to answer here. I'll see you if you show up. Thank you. Sammy D III (talk) 16:32, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

@Sammy D III: Maybe later.   — Jeff G. ツ 16:43, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
