schilderijen van UB Leiden[edit]

Hallo Maarten,

Ik heb vandaag uit de beeldbank van de UB Leiden (http://digitalcollections.universiteitleiden.nl) een selectie gemaakt van schilderijen die vrij downloadbaar zijn voor het project Sum of all Paintings. Het zijn 279 records met de volgende variabelen: item, label, shelfmark, materiaal (=schilderij), handle. Als je mij je email stuurt, kan ik het spreadsheet opsturen. Kan je daarmee de images toevoegen aan wikimedia commons?

Wil je ze dan, behalve in Sum of all Paintings, ook toevoegen aan een categorie "Paintings" in "Category:Collections of Leiden University Library".

Een stukje uit het bestand:

itemnr Label handle
item:1581995 Portret van Stephanus Marchant\, hoogleraar Rechtsgeleerdheid te Leiden Icones 101 http://hdl.handle.net/1887.1/item:1581995
item:1582018 Portret van Lucas Schacht\, hoogleraar Geneeskunde te Leiden Icones 103 http://hdl.handle.net/1887.1/item:1582018

Als je de link met de handle in een browser plakt, zie je een pagina van een portret met metadata. Onder de downloadknop met het pijltje zit een medium sized JPGEG. De link voor downloaden van de JPG die hoort bij het eerste item:1581995 is http://digitalcollections.universiteitleiden.nl//view/item/1581995/datastream/JPG/download.

De hoogleraren op deze portretten zijn allen waarschijnlijk als persoon al opgenomen in wikidata. Zou je die portretten ook nog aan de hoogleraren kunnen koppelen?

Ik heb wel je Wikimedia Usernaam, maar niet je email adres. Mijn mail adres is e.m.van.wijk@library.leidenuniv.nl.

Quadro di Rubens[edit]

Ciao, spero sia il posto giusto dove fatto questa domanda, in caso errato scusami e indicami come dialogare con te Ti contatto per il dipinto "Circoncisione" di Rubens che, se non sbaglio, hai inserito in WikiMedia https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Circoncisione_di_Gesù_-_Rubens.jpg

Quella foto l'ho fatta io nel 1998 quando facevo il fotografo di Arte e Architettura (ovviamente ho l'originale) Vorrei potermela attribuire ma non so come farlo, se non caricandola tra le mie e poi inserendola in Wikipedia

Puoi darmi indicazioni? grazie michele

Sets creator to Wikipedia username when Wikidata item would be a better choice[edit]

On many many of my uploaded images, MultichillBot has set Property/creator to "Wikimedia username: David Eppstein" (example). I would greatly prefer that, if we are going to have bots running around setting properties, that they use a more complete pointer to my identity, my Wikidata item d:Q3017847 rather than my username (example). Is it too much to ask that the bot do that? Or at least that someone associated with the bot find a way to do that, rather than leaving little messes all over my images for me to have to clean up manually myself? —David Eppstein (talk) 06:24, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for contributing to Commons! It's a generic bot and most people who upload enough are not notable enough to have an item on Wikidata. It's not a mess, it's correct but could be improved. That would be a job for another robot to do. At the moment I have no plans on implementing that. Multichill (talk) 18:30, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

License review van Vimeo[edit]

Hoi Multichill, twee weken terug heb je hier om een license review gevraagd, terwijl je dit (als ik me niet vergis) zelf als administrator kunt uitvoeren. Nu heb ik gezien, dat de Category:License review needed tienduizendend aanvragen achterloopt en dat aanvragen soms jaren openstaan, terwijl er ruim 5.000 video's en video screenshots van Vimeo om Commons bestaan, zie ook Category:Videos from Vimeo.

Nu biedt hetzelfde kanaal van Kunstmuseum Den Haag en aantal andere interessante andere video's onder dezelfde licentie, die ik best graag zou willen uploaden. Gezien je eerdere actie vroeg ik me af of hier misschien iets bijzonders aan de hand is? Mvg, -- Mdd (talk) 13:28, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Beste Multichill, ik zou het op prijs stellen als je hier toch een inhoudelijke reactie zou kunnen geven. Er is hier meer aan de hand, waarvan ik graag eerst een korte recapitulatie wil geven:
  • Op 27 december 2020 13.10u heb ik je eerst op De Kroeg tegengesproken, zie hier
  • Een half uur later plaats jij vier van bovengenoemde reviewverzoeken [1], [2], [3], [4].
  • Drie minuten daarna plaats je een commentaar in De Kroeg, zie hier
  • Dezelfde avond nog plaats bekrachtig je je stellingname in drie van dergelijke eerdere verzoeken bij geupload werk van Vysotsky [5], [6], [7], die je ook al eerder heeft tegengesproken in dezelfde discussie
  • Vervolgens lever ik weer commentaar op die drie verwijderingsverzoeken, en komt het geheel in een verdere patstelling.
Over je achterliggende beweegredenen heb je in dat ene commentaar in de Kroeg al iets laten doorschemeren. Je vind dat ik "...compleet voorbij aan het basisprincipe Commons:Project scope/Precautionary principle..." Nu heb ik in de betreffende Kroeg discussie dezelfde dag nog, zie hier, een reactie geplaatst waar je verder niet meer op ingegaan bent, zie hier.
Nu blijft mijn vraag ook, hoe ik dat tweede deel van het gezegde moet interpreteren:
.. Je bent er volgens mij al verschillende keren op gewezen door User:Ellywa als User:Ecritures.
Goede samenwerkingen zijn gebaseerd op heldere duidelijke afspraken, niet op dit onduidelijke gedoe. Multichill (talk) 12:48, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
Voor mij zijn nu juist die vier verzoeken tot een license review, die je zelf kan uitvoeren, een voorbeeld van onduidelijk gedoe. Ook die nog steeds openstaande twee massanominaties van User:Ellywa en User:Ecritures zijn voor mij een voorbeeld van onduidelijk gedoe.
Nu heeft Gouwenaar ook nog eens drie afbeeldingen voor verwijdering voorgedragen afgelopen week, waarvan er al een is verwijderd, en waarover verder hier een discussie loopt.
Je mag nu denken dat je met zo'n gezelschap goed zit, maar ik heb dat allemaal acht jaar terug meegemaakt. Nu staan er 40 afbeeldingen ter discussie, acht jaar terug zijn er 800 lemma's op Wikiquote ter discussie gesteld en allemaal verwijderd. Met de mensen die daar allemaal achter staan ben je in een nog veel groter gezelschap, die het allemaal bij het rechte eind menen te hebben.
Nu meld ik je dit slechts ter achtergrond informatie. Van jou wil ik hier graag weten, waarom je die ene administratieve afhandeling heb verricht? -- Mdd (talk) 17:36, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Ik keek in je uploads en die viel op. Heb er daarna een license review opgezet een van de robots de review kan doen. Ik had wel verwacht dat er ondertussen een robot langs was gekomen. Multichill (talk) 18:24, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
Hoi Multichill, het is ondertussen weer ruim drie weken verder. Nu had ik toen al gezien dat die YouTubeReviewBot alleen .webm files beoordeeld, wat ik in een later verwijderd bericht heb gemeld, (zie hier), maar besloot het nog even aan te zien. Kun je mij vertellen, hoe dit opgelost gaat worden? -- Mdd (talk) 08:17, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

BotMultichillT SDC edit discussion in village pump[edit]

Hi, this is just a notification because i think that i failed with ping so i do it like in the old days with a talk page message. There is discussion in the village pump which wonders why the coordinates in the SDC updated by BotMultichillT differs from template values. --Zache (talk) 16:05, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

Painting[edit]

"Higher resolution without blur + color correction" should be minor. I've read COM:OVERWRITE. There is no point of using a very poor quality image instead of the better version of the exact painting. And I don't think the poor image is justified as a separate file. --Nyxaros (talk) 09:12, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

Heyden/van de Velde - View of Düsseldorf with the church of St. Andrew in the centre.jpg[edit]

Ich habe in der Tat eine gleiches Bild, nämlich das Foto des Museums, in dem das Bild hängt, übernommen, weil es hochauflösend ist im Gegensatz zu dem bisherigen, welches aus einem Buch stammt. Bei der Umbenennung habe ich mich allerdings „verhauen“.

Der Grund der Umbenennung ist folgender: Der Titel „Jesuitenkirche“ ist irreführend in heutigen Zeiten und kein Mensch kann diese in Düsseldorf finden, wenn er nicht weiß, dass St. Andreas gemeint ist, welche teilweise auf Stadtplänen von Düsseldorf als „Dominikanerkloster“ geführt wird, also auch hier unter „Jesuiten“ nicht zu finden ist. Und das Original wird von der Galerij Prins Willem V aka Mauritshuis als „De St Andreaskerk te Düsseldorf“ aufgelistet. Mir ist allerdings dann die Formatierung missglückt. Dennoch bleiben die Tatsachen.

Daroom verstaa ik jouw revert niet so voluit. Dä Chronist (talk) 12:40, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

File:Vincenzo di Biagio Catena - Christ Delivering the Keys of Heaven to Saint Peter - P26e17 - Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.jpg[edit]

Can you look into photographer and license for this photo?--Jarekt (talk) 04:18, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

@Jarekt: that was the wrong image. Sometimes their API doesn't return the primary image. This version is not PD-art, but CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 see https://www.gardnermuseum.org/organization/rights-reproductions . I restored the right image. You might find some more cases like this. Multichill (talk) 09:41, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
I have another one: File:Domenico Tintoretto - Portrait of a Lady in Black - P24e2 - Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.jpg. I think we can just delete the image as we already have good photo of the painting. --Jarekt (talk) 03:13, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

Straten in Wikidata[edit]

Hi,

Misschien leuk voor je bot, of misschien heb je hier al contact over gehad, maar dan toch. Ik ben een beta-gebruiker van de Commons app voor Android en sinds kort doet de app suggesties, ik vermoed op basis van de coordinaten, of de foto een afbeelding is van ...? En vervolgens heb je de mogelijkheid om een depicts statement toe te voegen.

Ik zie echter dat de foto nog niet automatisch ook aan het Wikidata item toegevoegd wordt, ik heb dat net manueel gedaan voor enkele foto's (zoals deze die ik gisteren nam. Dat zou als de optie voor iedereen beschikbaar komt eventueel met bot kunnen toch? Ciell (talk) 21:59, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

Please participate in the Universal Code of Conduct consultation on Wikimedia Commons![edit]

Dear Multichill

Thank you for your hard work to create the sum of all knowledge that is freely sharable to every single human being across the world. As our diverse community grows, we need a guideline that will help all of our work collectively and constructively where everyone feels safe, welcomed, and part of a team. That is why the Wikimedia movement is working on establishing a global guideline called the Universal Code of Conduct, often referred to as UCoC.

After the months-long policy consultation, we have prepared a policy (available in many languages) that has been ratified by the Board of Trustees. We’re currently in the second phase of the process. During this round of consultation, we want to discuss the implementation of this policy. As a member of the functionary team of Wikimedia Commons, your opinion on enforcement is of great value. We want to hear from you on how this policy can be enforced on the Wikimedia Commons community and what might be needed to do so. There are a few enforcement questions so you can easily outline your answers based on them. Please do not hesitate to bring any more questions/challenges you think are not yet discussed.

The discussion is taking place on Commons:Universal Code of Conduct consultation. You can also share your thoughts by replying to this message (Please ping me so I get notified), posting your message on my talk page. I am aware that some thoughts cannot be expressed publicly, so you can always share your opinion by emailing me as well.

As a valued member of the Commons community, please share your thoughts, ideas, and experiences that relate to UCoC. Let us know what needs to be improved so we can build a more friendly and cooperative space to increase editor engagement and retention of new users.

Wikimedia projects are governed by you. So, it is you who needs to step up to ensure a safe, comfortable, and pleasant working environment.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you! Wikitanvir (WMF) (talk) 10:18, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

Suggestion re:author structured data[edit]

Hi Multichill, thank you for your work on structured data on Commons. Thanks to your work, we have been able to make a map of uploaders of pictures which are assigned as image (P18) in items of Czech municipalities - https:// bit.ly/ 2PyhwyW . I noticed that a lot of pictures by our prolific uploader ŠJů lack author data, presumably because he fills in the "author" field differently - see File:Sedlec-Prčice,_od_Sušetic.jpg or File:Jesenice u Sedlčan.jpg. Do you think you could parse these data? If not, is there a way I could do this myself? Having no programming skills, unfortunately, the most I am able to do is run a pre-made script and feed it a list of files. --Vojtěch Dostál (talk) 15:59, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

@Vojtěch Dostál: that query is pretty cool! I used it to create this one for the Rijksmonumenten in the Netherlands.
I use this regex to extract the username and that doesn't match. I'll see what I can do. Multichill (talk) 17:57, 4 March 2021 (UTC)
Thank you. Credits for the query go to Dipsacus fullonum.--Vojtěch Dostál (talk) 18:16, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

I noticed that we don't have a property for 'uploader'. Would it be desirable to include this information in structured data too?--Vojtěch Dostál (talk) 20:48, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

Structured data across Wikimedia is starting![edit]

Hi Multichill! I hope you're fine. :) I sent you an email some days ago about Structured Data Across Wikimedia (SDAW), the new WMF project that is about to start, and I wanted to be sure you received it.

Please do not feel pressured by this message! I'm just curious if you can (or want) to drop a line in the talk page, or if you know other user(s) that can be interested in the topic.

Hope to hear from you soon! --Sannita (WMF) (talk) 17:08, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Spell4Wiki Mass audio uploads in Dagbani - help needed to clean up[edit]

Hi Multichill! We'd need your help to Rename and Recategorize 289 audio files.

Some background

Dagbani Wikimedians undertook a project to record and upload Dagbani words to Wikimiedia Commons. We used the Spell4Wiki app which allows users to select their language, and then the app will proceed to add a prefix-language code to the Commons file's name. 4000+ words were uploaded into Category:Files uploaded by spell4wiki in dag.

The issues

  • Some users selected the wrong language to record their Dagbani word. Those wrong prefixed words are at Files uploaded by spell4wiki in CHECK. We would like them to be renamed with the right prefix Dag-
  • When renamed, some of those words in Category:Files uploaded by spell4wiki in CHECK will already exist in Category:Files uploaded by spell4wiki in dag. We want to keep both files(as they would likely have been recorded by a different user), so one of the duplicated file names can be named with the suffix, _1 or _2 (if there are 3 duplicates), and so on. E.g. Dag-Atalaata_1
  • To ensure conformity for all the words, we want the first letter of every word to be in caps, and the rest of the characters to be in lower case. i.e. Dag-Atalaata. We would like to rename all such files that don't conform, to now conform to this.

Many thanks for your help. —M@sssly 12:25, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

Troll[edit]

Take me to AN/U if you think I’m a troll, or appologize. -- Tuválkin 19:25, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

I'm responding to your actions, not who you are. It was clearly requested to respond on the other page so I removed your comment. Instead of just commenting on the other page you decided to do a bit of trolling. Just drop it. I don't have to go to Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems. That's for users asking admin help. As you can see on my user page I'm an admin here so I can act on disruptive users myself. Multichill (talk) 19:32, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
  • I’m well aware that you are an admin (and I also know that admins should not act as such when dealing with conflicts with other users, rather ask an uninvolved admin to step in — a good practice disregarded too often). So you are convinced that what prompted me to post what I did was trolling? Here I am, investing a lot of my spare time curating files but it’s all a cover and I’m actually here for teh lulz? Good to know. Rest asured that my opinion of you is no less negative, and likely more seriously so (because shilling for a corporate giant is worse than mere nihillism) — I hope mine is as much of a false impression as yours are. If you had a shred of good faith, you’d have moved my question to the other location and replied it there, instead of just deleting it — but of course you presume as much good faith from me as I do from you. Fair enough. (B.t.w., if AN/U is for problems of/by/from users, not problems about/with users, then everybody has been using it wrong for years…) -- Tuválkin 02:13, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

March 2021[edit]

Given your an admin you should already know this rule. Please don't under any circumstance remove editors comments unless they have given permission for you to do so. –Davey2010Talk 03:02, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

I follow Dutch Wikipedia rules where it's quite common to remove remarks that are placed in the wrong location. Multichill (talk) 10:27, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
I know each Wiki has their own rules however I didn't think you could remove others comments on other wikis. We also have TPO here (Commons:Talk_page_guidelines#In_general) which does state "Keep the discussion readable: Do not edit or remove comments made by other people unless they are offensive, uncivil or otherwise violate the guidelines or policies of Commons."
Tuvalkin's reply wasn't offensive, uncivil or violated any guidelines - The guideline also goes on to say that "When it is necessary to edit or remove comments, explain your reasoning in your edit summary. Often it is clearer to strike a comment, rather to change or delete it," however I've never seen comments deleted - just struck and only sock comments are struck.
Only vandal comments can be removed which in this case Tuvalkin isn't one so I'm afraid removing his comments (or striking them) isn't an option sorry. Thanks. –Davey2010Talk 11:44, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

GeographBot character-set confusion[edit]

It seems that GeographBot is mangling at least some characters in picture titles from Geograph. Take File:Play area, Eòropaidh - geograph.org.uk - 1813954.jpg, for instance. On Geograph, its title is "Play area, Eòropaidh", but Geographbot converted that into "Play area, Eòropaidh" in the filename, the caption, and the title. I'll fix this file, but I expect this is a systematic problem with the bot that should be fixed. --bjh21 (talk) 01:00, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

@Bjh21: looks like encoding problem, see http://api.geograph.org.uk/api-facetql.php?select=*&limit=1&where=id+between+1813954+and+1813954 . Json should only contain utf8 encoded strings. I'll look more deeper into it later. Multichill (talk) 09:50, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
Eww, yes. "Play area, E\u00c3\u00b2ropaidh". That's blatantly a bug in the Geograph API. --bjh21 (talk) 11:46, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
FYI, I think I've fixed all the affected uploads to date. --bjh21 (talk) 21:07, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
Great. I send one of the Geograph maintainers an email about the encoding issue. Multichill (talk) 20:46, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
@Bjh21: got a quick reply and a fix. First UTF8 fix, but that might include html entities:
So this was made:
Looks good so I updated my code to use the utf=2. Can you keep an eye on it? Multichill (talk) 11:33, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

Londinium?[edit]

I notice that File:Café in Old Broad Street - geograph.org.uk - 1818989.jpg has a displayed "Place of creation" of "Londinium (Londinium→Roman Britain→praetorian prefecture of Gaul→Roman Empire)", which is amusing but probably not appropriate. Londinium (Q927198) has an end time (P582) that predates when the photo was taken, so GeographBot probably should have ignored it. Indeed, the "Structured data" tab for that file warns about this as a constraint violation. --bjh21 (talk) 14:18, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

@Bjh21: that sure is unexpected. The source is http://edwardbetts.com/geocode/detail?lat=51.516381&lon=-0.082589 based on the camera location, the object used http://edwardbetts.com/geocode/detail?lat=51.516367&lon=-0.081725 and that returned the Ward of Aldgate (Q2098078) . @Edward: can you have a look what is happening here? Multichill (talk) 20:34, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
There was a bug in the geocoder, it first checks OSM for small, specific administrative areas. It is looking for areas tagged with admin_level=7 or higher. City of London is tagged as admin_level=6 in OSM, so the Gecoder rejects it. Next the Gecoder looks for nearby human settlements in Wikidata. It finds that Londinium is the nearest human settlement.
I've made two changes to fix this bug. I adjusted the SPARQL query to ignore any items with an end date and I've added a special case for City of London, so the geocoder will use the information from OSM, even though the admin_level < 7. edward (talk) 09:22, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

Help with bot[edit]

Forgive me if this is not the right place to ask for this. Could your bot help recategorize 1000+ images from Category:Javanese script, uploaded by User:Kidemang to a subcategory: Category:Javanese script files by Kidemang? They obscure the rest of the files there. Thanks! Bennylin (yes?) 22:58, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

Change of name of image[edit]

Hi. Your bot recently started changing part of the image name submitted to Commons. For example: Ranunculus_acris_CR5_0075.jpg became: Ranunculus_acris_DSC_0075_(51073639066).jpg

Why the change from CR5 to DSC ? I now have no way to trace my images. Bengt Nyman (talk) 17:33, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

@Bengt Nyman: A file with the name Ranunculus_acris_CR5_0075.jpg was never uploaded to Commons. The file File:Ranunculus_acris_DSC_0075_(51073639066).jpg was never renamed. My bot doesn't rename files. What makes you think a change happened? You can see your uploads at Special:ListFiles/Bengt_Nyman. Multichill (talk) 17:39, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Coordinates on a pic[edit]

Thanks added some structured data on File:Ville-Marie Eglise Notre-Dame-du-Rosaire.jpg march 8, 2021. Unfortunately, the coordinates was not exacts. They positionned the church on a forest road.

Thank you for adding structured data after i did a Pattypan upload. As a supposedly grown-up person, i should clear up my own mess, but how?

GeographBot occasionally omitting structured data[edit]

I've noticed a few cases where GeographBot has uploaded a file but not added the structured data statements to populate {{Geograph from structured data}}. Here are some recent examples:

They end up in Category:Images from Geograph Britain and Ireland with broken templates so they're easy enough to correct by hand, but if the bot could avoid creating them that would be good. --bjh21 (talk) 12:36, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

@Bjh21: thanks for pointing that out. I keep logs and looked into File:Rough ground beside the Allt Tarsuinn - geograph.org.uk - 1879955.jpg:
Ready to upload Rough_ground_beside_the_Allt_Tarsuinn_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1879955.jpg

So the bot tries to upload the file. It times out and the bot thinks it failed, but the file was actually uploaded. The bot retries to upload the file, but this fails because the file already exists. Because this reports back the upload as failed, the step of adding the structured data is never reached. I patched it up and restarted the bot so should be fixed for files uploaded after File:The Pier, Trefor - geograph.org.uk - 1887263.jpg. Can you let me know if this fixed it or not? Multichill (talk) 13:30, 17 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you! I'll continue to monitor Category:Images from Geograph Britain and Ireland with broken templates and I'll let you know if it happens again. --bjh21 (talk) 14:30, 17 April 2021 (UTC)
This has happened again: GeographBot uploaded File:Hilton Bay - geograph.org.uk - 1935352.jpg on 28 April but didn't give it any structured data. --bjh21 (talk) 10:18, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

GeographBot: too much metadata![edit]

This is in a sense the reverse of the above: File:Telephone box, Atworth - geograph.org.uk - 1879920.jpg has ended up with two copies of all the structured data, which causes entertaining breakage of {{Geograph from structured data}}. --bjh21 (talk) 09:56, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

@Bjh21: this actually crossed my mind when implementing the other fix, but forgot about it again. Shouldn't be too hard to fix. I'll have a look. I just have to check if it already has structured data and if the structured data already has source of file (P7482) (so [9] this won't disrupt it) and if that's not the case, add it.
On second thought, this is harder. It looks like an upstream bug in Pywikibot/MediaWiki API. The API request failed, the bot waited 5 seconds and tried again. Because both edits are done by the same user, no edit conflict is thrown by the API. I recall having a bug open for this in Phabricator somewhere. Should be extremely rare. Did you see many cases? I only found one other case (File:St Peters Way - geograph.org.uk - 288877.jpg), see Query
Might be better to not solve this in the bot, but just deploy a duplicate statement removal bot like we have on Wikidata. Multichill (talk) 16:43, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
I was looking for files in Category:Images from Geograph Britain and Ireland with odd sort keys, and that was the only one I noticed. That wouldn't catch anything that doesn't use {{Geograph from structured data}}, though, which is why I didn't spot the other one you found. --bjh21 (talk) 17:04, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Wikidata infobox in individual painting category[edit]

Hi! Why did you add a Wikidata infobox to a category that has no Wikidata connection? Yes, probably it should have one, but as it stands, the result is only an error message. If it had a Wikidata connection, Pi bot would add the infobox (also recording the Qid in the edit summary so that eventual vandalism on Wikidata is easier to track). —Tacsipacsi (talk) 13:13, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

@Tacsipacsi: because it can probably and should be linked to Wikidata, see Commons:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Individual painting categories and Commons:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Individual painting categories/To link. Multichill (talk) 14:00, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes, probably it should be linked, but the order was wrong: first link it to Wikidata, then add the infobox, if you managed to find/create the item (or just let Pi bot do the rest). I’m glad you added this particular link, but it was just an example, I’m pretty sure there are still tons of pages that display the error message after your bot edits. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 20:03, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
@Tacsipacsi: No, this is exactly the right order. I used User:Multichill/Kladblok as a starting point with a lot of filtering and manual approval to only catch what looked like individual paintings. This populates Commons:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Individual painting categories/To link. Next step is to process that page.
Category:Uses of Wikidata Infobox with no item already contained over 60.000+ subcategories before I even started so I'm not really worried about temporary increasing that a bit. Multichill (talk) 21:02, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
This particular category was broken for more than 18 hours; even if you meant it to be temporary, it didn’t look so. I mean 18 hours if it doesn’t get stuck in the caches, and practice shows that often it does. If you did the other way round, it wouldn’t have had an opportunity to get stuck in the caches. And even if you consider temporary breakage not to be an issue, I still don’t understand why is this the right order, what drawbacks would have adding the sitelinks first had. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:01, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Big thanks![edit]

Your bot is fantastic! It added very valuable structured data here for example: https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Reise_des_Kunden_Costumer_Journey_Map_with_Touchpoints_by_M_Heintz_DigitEcon.jpg&diff=503762232&oldid=403894538 — Preceding unsigned comment added by So9q (talk • contribs) 12:04, 21 April 2021‎ (UTC)

Oil on canvas[edit]

Hi Multichill. I wonder why your bot is doing edits like this. Either it should remove the Swedish translation or do nothing. Since Module:I18n/oil on canvas has both the langages, the templates {{En}} and {{Sv}} becomes redundant. I don't know how many cases this has happened in. But maybe there's other cases with similar translated modules. – GeMet [talk] 01:05, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Because I was replacing the Swedish "Olja på duk" with {{Oil on canvas}}. You incorrectly wrapped {{Oil on canvas}} in {{En}}. So I guess it depends on how many files you did that? I only found 6 cases. Multichill (talk) 20:13, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

Interview for Commons APIs[edit]

Hi Multichill! My name is Seve and I am the Product Manager for the Platform engineering team at WMF. I am currently taking an audit of our different APIs to better understand how they are being used and the challenges and issues that these interfaces currently present. I wanted to ask if you're available for an interview to specifically shed light on the API(s) around Wikimedia Commons. I am happy to set up a time that works with your schedule.

Looking forward to chatting! SK SKim (WMF) (talk) 16:27, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Creator template or what to do?[edit]

Hi! Some local archives in Denmark would like to share photos with Wiki. An example File:Genforeningen 1920 Chr X på hest med en pige.jpg. What is the best way to set it up? A creator template is not correct I guess because it is not the archive that is the photographer. Any tips? --MGA73 (talk) 18:44, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

@MGA73: let's throw in Commons:Guide to batch uploading and Commons:Guide to content partnerships which might provide some useful information (and I always wonder if people bother to read it).
When uploading historic photographs, {{Photograph}} is probably more suitable. I would just list the archive as the source. Also an institution template is useful. I updated the image with these changes.
Are we talking about a lot of images? If yes, a source template would be useful to add a tracker category.
Your example upload does have issues. The source doesn't provide an author and it's from 1920, but does say it's in the public domain. Why exactly? And why was {{Cc-zero}} added? That seems incorrect. Multichill (talk) 16:29, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! Yes I know the upload is not good. Someone started a project and did not check things first. I was not told about it untill a few days ago. So I do not know how many images we are talking about. I would say that it depends on if they can explain why the photos are PD and if the persons in the photo are notable.
We have {{PD-Denmark50}} that would be usefull in some cases. The archives sometimes get the photos donated by the photographers or their hiers. We can either reject them or trust that they know what they are doing. Personally I would like to have them give detalis if they have them.

Odd template choice[edit]

While artwork features prominently in File:Centralia, WA - main post office interior 06.jpg and File:Centralia, WA - main post office interior 03.jpg, it doesn't seem to be so prominent that it is appropriate to replace {{Information}} with {{Artwork}}. Who is making the decision on when to do this? I see that the actual change was made by your bot, with no indication of human agency. - Jmabel ! talk 22:40, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

Hi Joe, every once in a while I add some more images to Category:Paintings without Wikidata item to more images used on Wikidata and more files here linked to Wikidata. This is part of Commons:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Improving metadata to link to Wikidata. I usually skim the list to filter out some of the edge cases. I try to be careful and I found well over 200.000 painting images this way without too many issues. I did run into other photos from this set, but I didn't run into these two. Switched them to {{Art photo}} now and created Industries of Lewis County (Q106626718) and Main Post Office (Q106626724) to link everything together. You might like to expand these items or you might like to work on User:Multichill/Same image without Wikidata/Wikidata creator, institution and inventory number match which grew with a lot of National Gallery of Art based on my recent edits.

Thanks, this is a much better way to do this. - Jmabel ! talk 02:33, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

bonjour,

pouvez-vous me dire précisément ce qui a été modifié ?
