File deletion for licence[edit]

Hi Amanda,

It seems that the file File:Corse ColDeTeghime DetailCanon.jpg has been deleted for copyright questions. It's a picture from my own work. I can update the licence to the right one. What is better ? undeleting the file or uploading a new file ?

Bye

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Want some help categorising?[edit]

I notice that you have a large number of high quality images in your "Uploaded by" section? Would you like a hand categorising these? It seems it shame to have them sitting where nobody can find or use them. Mark Marathon (talk) 09:17, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi @Mark Marathon:. Thank you for noticing. I am waiting for sombody with a bot to automatically categorize them. See here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:F%C3%A6#Categorization_Request_2 . After the bot went through, I would be happy if you could help me. If you have added a cat to an image, please remove the Uploaded by Amada44 (unsorted) Category. Also I have seen, that you do a lot of work in categorizing images which is really great! Thank you! There are a number of comments on your talk page of how you can improve your work. Its generally best to only add a very precise category. For example you moved this image (https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Pterophoridae_sp._%282990460236%29.jpg&action=history) to the category moths, but it would be much better if it was at 'Unidentified Pterophoridae' or at least 'Unidentified moths'.
I have also seen, that you have uploaded great images! That is really cool! Thank you! Amada44  talk to me 07:37, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Bots[edit]


You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2015-June/081931.html This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including mediawiki.org) on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allpages ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.
