Gymnastics icons[edit]

Hi there! It seems like we both started working on these at the same time. It's my personal opinion that these files should all be the same size (most of the PNGs are 56x56), just so that they are as clean as possible. Unless you have any objections, I'll edit the ones you've already done at some point in order to reduce the size. If you want to do this yourself, go ahead!

The one file that we now have two of I'll nominate for deletion. Again, if you have an objection, feel free to say, but there's no reason to keep both!

I've also removed all the 1s from your filenames, as this is due to the uploader bug and I assume you intend them to be direct replacements. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 16:50, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lotǃ That all sounds fine to me. I am done for now, so you can work on the rest without conflict. I will fix the sizes of the ones I uploaded, though. Would 30x30px be better, since that seems to be the size they're actually used at? BMacZero (talk) 16:56, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes, you're right. 30x30 seems like a much better choice. I wonder why they were at such strange sizes before? Anyway, thanks for your understanding! Hopefully we'll have a full set and we can clear them off the most used rasters list.  :) NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 18:16, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

BMacZeroBot and other people's uploads[edit]

I've uploaded lots of images that won't matter to this request (they're in Category:Other people's pictures by User:Nyttend, which I intentionally didn't list) that don't have certain dates, simply because the sources don't have certain dates. Of course, tons of other people's uploads don't have certain dates, whether for the same reason or because the uploaders didn't record photo dates. If possible, would we be able to run with EXIF information? And if that's not available for an image, would the bot be able to handle partial dates? I wonder about files like File:332-334 Lackawanna Avenue, Scranton.jpg (year only), File:1938 Lincoln County Courthouse.jpg (year and month), in particular; I know that totally dateless images like File:Beaver Creek Bridge in Wind Cave National Park.jpg can rely on the {{unknown}} template, and non-number dates can rely on {{Other date}} (I've uploaded some images with nothing but "Fall 1980", and those got the other date template), but outright partial dates I don't know. Nyttend (talk) 13:00, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

@Nyttend: Thanks for finding those templates. I'm currently set up to use the "Date Time Original" metadata field if there is nothing in "date=" at all - all of your photos have it, but the files you linked don't, and the metadata date they do have seems to be the date they were digitized. I'll work on integrating the Other Date template so we can handle differently-formatted dates, though we will probably still need the category to flag completely non-readable dates. BMacZero (talk) 16:48, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
"Other date" seems to be targeted toward displaying things like ranges, and/or, before/after, rather than less precise dates. I think what we want for cases where we only have month/year or just year is {{Taken in}}. We can use {{other date|?}} for totally missing dates. BMacZero (talk) 20:52, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Wrong categories[edit]

Please see here. "Moray" is a type of fish, and their category would be "Morays", except that we categorise by binomial classifications, e.g. "Muraenidae X". On the other hand, "Moray" is a council area of Scotland. Can you try to ensure this doesn't happen again? Cheers. Rodhullandemu (talk) 19:48, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

@Rodhullandemu:: I'm sure we'll run into other issues like that, which is the reason I'm adding Template:Check categories to the files.

Franklin Landers House[edit]

The photo of the Franklin Landers home does not show the front of the house. It is just the east side of the house. The front of the house faces south. I know this as I've owned the property for 20+ years. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 166.175.60.40 (talk • contribs)

@166.175.60.40:: Are you talking about this image: File:Franklin_Landers-Black_and_Adams_Farmhouse.jpg? I don't know anything about that image, I only adjusted some formatting on the page at the request of the author. You might want to ask @Nyttend:, who is the original photographer, about it - or, since this is a Wiki, you can simply change the text yourself when you see an error (see Commons:Welcome). I pinged Nyttend for you. BMacZero (talk) 20:22, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Bot seems to have added the wrong century of birth[edit]

I noticed a category with a creator born circa 1550 {{other date|ca|1550}}. This bot added Category:15th-century births. It seems to me that it should have added Category:16th-century births, since 1550 is in the 16th century --Robert.Allen (talk) 08:30, 3 February 2016 (UTC).

@Robert.Allen: Thanks for the report! I fixed the bot. BMacZero (talk) 16:34, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Additional bot request[edit]

Last year, you helped me with a big bot project, replacing dates with {{Taken on}} in more than thirteen thousand image description pages, as typified here. Could you request permission for a more limited project that doesn't affect my images? Occasionally I'll see the phrase "Taken on [date]" in the date field of description pages: sometimes "Taken on 4 February 2016", sometimes "Taken on February 4, 2016", sometimes even "Taken on 2016-02-04", and in the case of one formerly active photographer, "Taken on 2016-02-04". I was wondering if you could request permission to have your bot replace all of these phrases with {{taken on}}? I didn't request mass bot-tagging of dates in this section for anyone other than myself, since of course lots of files aren't photographs in the first place and thus shouldn't have this template, but when an uploader is already using the phrase "Taken on [date]", we'll have almost no mistakes, and any exceptions will have already been there before the bot came through. Nyttend (talk) 14:34, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

@Nyttend: I think that's a good idea. I'd be happy to do if needed, but I think there may be other bots already making similar substitutions (like the ones listed at Commons:Template i18n/bot replacements) that would be better suited to add this to what they're already doing. I know that @Schlurcher: has one, but there might be others. Maybe we should raise this at COM:BWR and see if anyone can pick it up easily. BMacZero (talk) 18:15, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Sounds good. I didn't know that there might be any better-suited bots than yours; I'll be happy to leave a note there unless Schlurcher is able/willing to help. Nyttend (talk) 18:18, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
@Nyttend: Yeah, my bot isn't capable (yet) of translating all the different date formats people use into YYYY-MM-DD - when I did your photos, I made some assumptions, including that they would all be in YYYY-MM-DD format already (if I remember correctly). Probably not too much more work to add that, but there are other bots that already have it. BMacZero (talk) 18:28, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Text accompanying Frank La Roche images[edit]

A large number of photographs by Frank La Roche uploaded 9 June 2016 contain as part of their description, "Steamboat NORTH PACIFIC (left) and unidentified steamboat at the Oregon Improvement Company and Union Pacific dock", which may be an accurate description of some one photo, but is misleading for many others (especially ones that show other boats!). I'm inclined to delete this text, but there may be some documentary purpose (unknown to me) to keep it. I believe you did the upload; do you have some intention here? - Jmabel ! talk 02:07, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

@Jmabel: All the text on those files just comes directly from the source pages at the University of Washington. It looks like it got copied around on their end accidentally when they were copying the "Prospectus of the Lake Union Improvement Company" bit to appropriate files. I'd say it's a mistake and should be removed (except from the image it actually applies to, of course; I think it's this one. Fortunately it only seems to affect about 22 files.

A ship ID[edit]

I was wondering about your identification of the ship in File:Four-masted bark ITALIA at anchor at dock, Seattle, Washington, ca 1904 (HESTER 18).jpeg. Yes, it is a 4-masted barque called Italia, but the date of the image is described as c. 1904 and the one you linked seems to have been given that name later, in 1911. (Actually, I have serious doubt about the image being Seattle c. 1904, but that's another matter.) Any thoughts would be welcome. - Jmabel ! talk 03:17, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

@Jmabel: Yes, I would agree that the identification is sketchy. On closer inspection, it doesn't seem to have enough topsails, either. What are your thoughts on the date? BMacZero (talk) 05:04, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
More inclined to believe the date than the location. I've looked at a lot of old photos of Seattle; that doesn't look like Seattle. Of course, it's possible that both the date & location are wrong. Maybe the ship ID is right & if we can trace where Hester worked when we can work it out: a city that looks like that, at a date where this ship would have been the Italia. But for now, I'd be more inclined to remove it from that category and just put a note about the doubts (and a reference to info about that ship; I agree it might be that ship). - Jmabel ! talk 14:58, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
I see I had made a note earlier that it sure looks like the same ship shown at http://www.themodelshipwright.com/high-resolution-ship-plans/sailing-vessels/italian-four-masted-barque-erasmo-erasmus/ (first photo), identified there as Italian ship Erasmo. That was built 1903, which would be congruent with the date given here. However, text on that page suggests that ship was more likely in the Southern Pacific than the Northern. - Jmabel ! talk 23:04, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
@Jmabel: Those do look pretty similar, but Italia has one yard second from the top instead of two, and more notably the anchor port (?) looks to be a lot closer to the waterline. BMacZero (talk) 16:05, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
For what it's worth, though, my friend Wendi says that according to the Seattle Daily Times a ship called Italia was in Port Townsend, Port Gamble, and Port Blakeley (all on Puget Sound) in August and October of 1904. I just have a feeling the caption & the photo don't correspond. - Jmabel ! talk 23:13, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
I'm back to thinking Seattle after all. The buildings at left in this photo seem to be the same ones at right in File:Union Pacific Dock at the foot of Main St, Seattle, Washington, June 6, 1891 (LAROCHE 179).jpeg, and the latter is definitely what it claims to be. - Jmabel ! talk

"Does the bot know something?"[edit]

In File:Timber for the construction of the Mechanics Pavilion at the Chicago World's Columbian Exposition, Seattle, Washington, ca 1893 (LAROCHE 210).jpeg, where your bot added Category:Road-rail vehicles: is this based on something I'm not seeing, or is the bot just confused? - Jmabel ! talk 00:31, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

@Jmabel: It seems to have come from the tag 'Railroad cars--Washington (State)--Seattle', which got interpreted as Category:Railroad cars which is a redirect to Category:Road-rail vehicles. That is probably not a good redirect. Should it redirect to Category:Rail vehicles instead? BMacZero (talk) 01:05, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
I would think so. - Jmabel ! talk 01:10, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Gothic revival architecture[edit]

Followup to your participation at Commons:Categories for discussion/2012/01/Revival architectural styles: I've gradually been moving individual "revival" categories to "Revival", but there are so many of them — over 1,400 in total! I've just now given up on the manual moves and made a massive CommonsDelinker request, and SteinsplitterBot has already begun moving the categories and their contents. At the rate things are going, we may see everything moved before a significant amount of time has passed, but then of course we'll have to start on the Romanesque revival categories. Thanks for your help in the discussion and followup! Nyttend (talk) 14:37, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

@Nyttend: Great, thanks! I am now set up to do searches and request large batches of these, too - hopefully we can finally burn through them (see my comment on the CfD page).

Clarence William Vernon[edit]

@Verne Equinox: The author is just listed as "C. W. Vernon" at the source, and it's possible I mis-identified the person this was supposed to refer to. Maybe it's more likely that is is [Charles William Vernon https://viaf.org/viaf/68820651/#Vernon,_Charles_William], though there's not much information available about him, either. Does that seem more likely to you? If so, I'll fix it up. BMacZero (talk) 04:22, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
@BMacZero: Charles seems to be the correct name. See this bio of him which mentions the book about Cape Breton. Based on this article, I would have to question whether Vernon was also the photographer.Verne Equinox (talk) 03:59, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
@Verne Equinox: That is probably true. I located a PDF of the book, but no illustrators were named that I could see, though some are signed. I've gone ahead and changed the authors of those images to "unknown", and moved all the images from Category:Clarence William Vernon to Category:Cape Breton Canada at the Beginning of the Twentieth Century: a Treatise of Natural Resources and Development.

Thanks. I added a few other images from this work some years ago. I'll add them to the new category soon.Verne Equinox (talk) 03:00, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

Are you still using Category:Categories with On Wikidata template that doesn't match Creator wikidata parameter, Category:Categories with On Wikidata that doesn't match Creator wikidata parameter or Category:Creator templates with non-machine-readable birth/death dates? --Jarekt (talk) 19:33, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

@Jarekt: I'm not actively running that bot and don't have any plans to, so I suppose not. BMacZero (talk) 05:23, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
