"Competitive swimmers"[edit]

You might want to know: your bot puts Category:Competitive swimmers on pretty much anything where people are swimming in any sense, even children wading at a beach. Case in point: File:Swimmers at Woodland Park Beach, Green Lake, ca 1922 (SEATTLE 2500).jpg, which I just fixed, one of four I stumbled on today because I'm going through pictures of parks in Seattle. - Jmabel ! talk 16:45, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

@Jmabel: Thanks, I can directly correct that category mapping for any future uploads. – BMacZero (🗩) 02:31, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
Just another odd redirect; Category:Swimmers was redirecting to Category:Competitive swimmers. I changed it to Category:People swimming. – BMacZero (🗩)

Category:Images from the Seattle Photographs to check[edit]

I finally have this down to a thousand photos. Probably needless to say, a lot of the ones that are left are going to be the toughest to get right. I may be taking a break from this some time soon to focus on something easier for a while. - Jmabel ! talk 15:43, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

Jmabel Thanks again for all your hard work improving all these images and making them more useful. Breaks are good! If I resume uploading at some point I'll be working on NPGallery again or the UWash portraits collection, so I probably won't be spamming Seattle again in the immediate future. – BMacZero (🗩) 02:18, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Check out the related side project in progress: Pioneer Square Park. - Jmabel ! talk 02:25, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

@Jmabel: Very cool. I wonder if there are enough images there to assemble a 360 view. I may try it but probably the vantage points are too different. – BMacZero (🗩) 16:49, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
They are pretty much all outside looking in, so it can't be done with something like Hugin. But in many cases we have the same angle (or almost) from different points in time, and a dissolve would be possible. - Jmabel ! talk

A barnstar for you![edit]

File:Black River from the wagon bridge, looking upstream, Gate City, September 27, 1898 (WAITE 98).jpeg[edit]

Not sure where your bot got the idea this was in Virginia; dropping you a note mainly in case this also affected other photos. - Jmabel ! talk 05:13, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

@Jmabel: Thanks again for the report. It's supposed to translate the input location (e.g. "United States--Washington (State)--Gate City") into a friendly name and category by looking up the bottom-level name (e.g. "Gate City") on Wikidata, then verifying it by checking for "Washington (state)" and "United States" as parents. It looks like the bug is that it was happy as long as any one of them matched (e.g. just "United States"). This all might be bit much anyway considering that all this gets us in the location field is an automatic link to the Wikipedia page if there is one. I should probably just preserve the original format. There are not other uses of Gate City but I'll try to check for other, similar errors. – BMacZero (🗩) 05:31, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

Review requested[edit]

I just wrote Commons:Uploading from the Seattle Municipal Archives Flickr stream. Could I ask you to have a look? You probably have as much context for this as anyone. - Jmabel ! talk 05:56, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

@Jmabel: Nice, it looks clear and thorough to me. The only thing I noticed is that you recommend converting the higher-quality TIFFs to JPEGs to overwrite the Flickr files. TIFFs are sometimes lossless files and converting them to JPEG might lose a bit of quality. That may or may not be important to you. I know some batch uploads upload the HQ TIFFs as separate files and link them to the JPEGs, though of course having to duplicate the page content isn't ideal either. – BMacZero (🗩) 18:23, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
I figure (1) since they release JPEGs (and very occasionally a GIF), I think we should upgrade the JPEG to the full size and (2) there is almost no chance the Seattle Municipal Archives' own site will go away, so if someone needs the TIFF they can always fetch it from there just like I do.
Glad to know you think what I wrote is clear. - Jmabel ! talk 02:17, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
