Bot task[edit]

Per your request that I reiterate your offer to have your bot crawl the Flickrstream, I am hereby stating that the Flickrstream is <>. God bless the bureaucracy. Sven Manguard Wha? 06:42, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Just added the image-reviewer group to the bot to avoid complications. Recently you said that is easier to use than tools:~magnus/flickr_mass.php (toolserver nightshade seems to be down currently) because it's only one command line. I never used one of the tools. What's the difficulty with flickr_mass? I thought one have just to enter the stream-URL? -- RE rillke questions? 17:38, 30 April 2012 (UTC) is easy to use but a bit of a challenge to setup. Once you install PIL (correctly) and flickr extensions to python and add the relevant code to it is a simple matter of running the code. The problem is code completely crashes or does something weird if commons or flickr cuts communication mid-upload. Typically code stops running completely. This never happened during the New Zealand run but CTBTO run is being a pain for this reason. I made the but re-run itself in a batch file until I am satisfied all the uploads are correctly conducted. Bot avoids duplicate uploads so that is not a worry. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 23:07, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Commons talk:Flickr images/reviewers/archive 10#タチコマ robot[edit]

Does this count as being granted since the bot was approved for the task? -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 12:10, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

I think not--Morning Sunshine (talk) 13:27, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Do I need to file a new request? What do I need to do? -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 08:03, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
If the files are unchanged from the Flickr version why not use the standard Flickrreview template? AFAIR a bot needs to have file reviewer rights to become an accepted review tag. A null-edit from your useraccount will probably not accepted, I suggest changing the tag to a standard flickrreview tag to have the review bot do its work. --Denniss (talk) 14:01, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
As the bot now has a reviewer flag please sign the added Flickrreview template with the robot signature and not your own. You are currently creating shedloads of work (for me) as your signature is detected as invalid. --Denniss (talk) 13:59, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Problem was due to a config file error I corrected today. The issue is already fixed through bot such as this. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 14:32, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
No, it has not been fixed, even the latest uploads likw this one are still signed with your signature. --Denniss (talk) 20:52, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
I see the bots signature. I am a bit confused. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 22:26, 1 May 2012 (UTC)


Good to know! :) I will add {{CTBTO}} to all files after the upload so you do not need to do this manually. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 07:29, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Fantastic! Sven Manguard Wha? 15:48, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Could you PLEASE stop nominating the files for deletion. People are deleting them which complicates my task significantly. Feel free to make a list of files that you think should be deleted and I can make the bot nominate them in bulk for you. I will let you know when the bot is done. The source has lots of files so it takes time to upload them all. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 22:09, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Just let me know when all the uploading is done. Sorry about this mate. Sven Manguard Wha? 03:20, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Sure thing. There are 940 files at source and we have 510 of them here. So 430 more to go. :) -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 13:24, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
We are up to 911 images. So that's 29 more to go provided the 29 files are freely licensed. I am not sure which 29 were not uploaded. Code needs to crawl 911 files so it takes a very long time for it to do a single full run. Just letting you know. :) -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 18:58, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
I am going to stop the run since the bot seems to be unable to grab the remaining 29 files. These either are not freely licensed or are not valid for some other reason. Also some images (such as the pictures of atomic tests) they claim CC-BY-SA are probably PD as they were probably taken before CTBTO begun to exist. These need to be re-tagged. Also I can assist you with the renaming of files if you'd like me to do that. Just tag em and I will move em. :D
If you find any other stream like this one do let me know :)

Blocked bot[edit]

Hello とある白い猫, there appears to be a problem with your bot. I've blocked it, following this report. Greetings, Mathonius (talk) 19:10, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

What exactly is broken? I was not even asked to stop it. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 19:12, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Please look at its edits. It is archiving threads (not part of its supposed duties), and even more, ignoring the time constraints for old threads (using 24 hours), and worse, it's not archiving them but deleting them instead. MiszaBot already does this stuff, correctly -- why did your bot even attempt it? Carl Lindberg (talk) 19:14, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Hmm. This wasn't intended. I have reverted all of bots edits and stopped the code. I sincerely apologize for this. It was supposed to archive only one page. I must have given it the wrong input by accident. Bot can be unblocked. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 19:17, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. I've unblocked your bot. Mathonius (talk) 19:22, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. I do see that Template_talk:Assessments is still set to be archived by your bot... but I didn't see page archiving as one of the requested or approved features of the bot. Is there a reason why MiszaBot could not perform the task there? Carl Lindberg (talk) 20:41, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
You are welcome to switch template for MiszaBot. I just wanted to knock out archives going back years as it was a pain for me to load the page. I could have manually archived of course but I want to rely on bot to do that. Though I am not sure if using the bot is a good idea anymore given the results of the code. I may run it on my own talk page only, I hope that's ok. :/ -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 20:50, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

It seems you have missed to fix at least that one edit at Commons:Help_desk?! Reverted. Please check for other occurrences. --Saibo (Δ) 19:50, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

I was doing that actually. All pages should be fixed properly. I had to fix two other pages which had edits before I could revert. I have recovered missing content. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 20:08, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

ga.wikipedia - bureaucrat request[edit]

Hey there. I left a message on my talk page over there re. your rename. I'm not sure how you want to proceed on that. I can usurp your SUL account then rename the 'White Cat' one to this name, but it'll end up in detaching your account from the SUL system for that wiki. Is this the way you want it to be handled? It could get kinda messy :/ Either way, I can sort it out. I just want to do what's best for you here :) - Alison 19:19, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Ok - ✓ Done - take a look and let me know how that looks? I can always move them around again if needs be :) - Alison 22:25, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

mr and hi translation[edit]

You could start a {{Assessments/translate/mr}} and a {{Assessments/translate/hi}} translation using content from {{Assessments/translate/en}} if you like. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 13:16, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

I'll try but the code for {{Assessments/translate/en}} is wicked. Also, I've never done any substantial translation nor any edits to templates so I will need a lot of help with that. I can of course give translations for sentences but using any template syntax/code is extremely difficult for me.--Gauravjuvekar (talk) 04:49, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
I'd be happy to assist. It typically is simple sentences. "Featured" part is complicated in particular but I can assist you with that. Also feel free to try and make mistakes, I can correct those for you. :) -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 08:34, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Featured pictures(plural) is निर्वाचित तस्वीरें in Hindi, विशेष चित्रे in Marathi. Got it from the Highlights section on the main page for the respective languages.--Gauravjuvekar (talk) 08:53, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
You need to copy the code from {{Assessments/translate/en}} and translate it. If the code breaks I can fix it for you. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 17:35, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
Copied code, done QI part. Also changed {{Quality image}}(hindi)--Gauravjuvekar (talk) 18:52, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
Nice. I have added the code for you to preview. You can see the effect on the page. :) -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 13:38, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

TUSC token 09358c85ca6e0471d2510c3c955c7dc5[edit]

I am now proud owner of a TUSC account! -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 16:02, 5 October 2011‎ (UTC)
