DRBot and ifexist[edit]

DRBot seems to think the parser function is called "ifexists" instead of "ifexist".[1] Rocket000 (talk) 02:50, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

License review[edit]

Hello Bryan, since a short time, I load free licensed pictures from the mineral database mindat (for example look at the user galleries of Maurizio Dini, Ralph Bottrill and Rock Currier), but I don't know, if the user there can change the license in the pictures. So I think, it would be better to have something like User:FlickreviewR and Template:Flickrreview for mindat-pictures. Could you develop this? greetings -- Ra'ike T C 22:53, 10 January 2010 (UTC)


Hi Bryan, any chance that DRBot processes this closure and removes the deletion tag from the remaining images? -- User:Docu at 05:59, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

For that one it didn't work either. -- User:Docu at 13:34, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
Non standard requests are not supported. -- Bryan (talk to me) 20:13, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
The second one looks quite standard (in the meantime, the file has been renamed though). Which part was a problem? -- User:Docu at 01:18, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
The latter. -- Bryan (talk to me) 21:45, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Kim Saigh 01.jpg[edit]

File:Shimon Peres - World Economic Forum on the Middle East 2009.jpg[edit]

Hi. I uploaded this file with Flickr upload bot, but it apprently didn't work. What do I have to do? I tried to upload it with this tool after, but it didn't work either. --TwoWings * to talk or not to talk... 21:10, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

It says "This file contains HTML or script code that may be erroneously interpreted by a web browser." Rocket000 (talk) 00:31, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes I saw that. But what does it mean exactly? What's the solution? --TwoWings * to talk or not to talk... 06:51, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
The only solution I know of is to strip the metadata. That's because there's html (specifically <a href...>) that is probably getting interpreted as a script. The problem though, is it's in a proprietary tag (made by the specific camera). Meaning it's uneditable with most software (at least everything I tried). The only option is the strip the maker tags (including the other camera info) or hexedit in something that's the same length. Rocket000 (talk) 17:39, 19 February 2010 (UTC)


Usually my upload limit is in 25 images, more or less. Is it possible to increase this limit? With the help of your bot, user Lmbuga and I are trying to provide gl.wikipedia with a good collection of images from our country, but this limit doesn't let us to work as quikly as we would like. Thanks. --Xoacas (talk) 17:32, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

If you try again after a couple hours sometimes it works. In the meantime, try Rocket000 (talk) 17:43, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

File:Trajan's Bridge Across the Danube, Modern Reconstruction.jpg[edit]

24 h gone and still no sign of my beloved bridge. It is this pic: Trajan's Bridge. What to do? Regards Gun Powder Ma (talk) 01:15, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi Bryan,

The author of Image:PettyHarbour.jpg is Elijah van der Giessen, as indicated in the author box on the page. The image was imported from:

Where it is licensed as cc-by-nc. I used the Flickr2Commons tool to import the image.

Thanks, Babbage (talk) 10:58, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Undeletion request[edit]

Hi, I'm writing to ask you if you would consider undeleting an image that you previsously deleted in January 2008. This is a photo of a painting by a person who died in 1905. The WikiCommons policy on this kind of images were changed in July 2008, making them permissible, see Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag. WikiCommons has three other versions of this image, for example File:Mother and Child by Edelfelt.jpg. I am an administrator myself but I am also the uploader of this image, that is why I contact you. The name of the file is File:Drottning Blanka, målning av Albert Edelfelt från 1877.jpg. Regards, Thuresson (talk) 21:43, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Dont know if Bryan will read this so quick. The last upload was your upload, so I will restore it. I will keep Joruns first version deleted as he dont want the risk and dont want his uploads undeleted (see the various requests at COM:UNDEL), now its your upload ;) --Martin H. (talk) 22:56, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

flickr upload bot[edit]

Just a note, the talk archive of your bot was 392 kb, so I broke it up into a page 1 and a page 2. All future notifications will go to the page 2. -Nard the Bard 19:34, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Strange import[edit]

Why did Flickr upload bot import File:La Roche-aux-Fées.jpg ? First there is a bug in the author name (Nicolas instead of Nicolas Vigneron but it maybe come from me), then I didn’t see it so the image is also here : File:La Roche-aux-Fées (vue générale).JPG. So could I delete your bot duplicate image ? Cdlt, VIGNERON * discut. 15:00, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

I found a free licensed image on flickr, but it was only viewable by friends which is how i found it, apart from that it shouldnt have any copyright issues, but it needs to be reviewed again. because it was private originally, the bot couldnt determine the review. its public now, but i dont know how to put it back up for review by the bot. can you help me? --Stripy Socks (talk) 18:25, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Help About a bot Creation or Using.[edit]


I'm from Sinhala Wiki. I have noticed that you have created lots of bots. I'm here to ask a help from you. it is great if you can help me on this case.

Some one is adding a tag into his articles in Sinhala wiki. but it is not necessary. Tag is like this:

"This article has been translated from the English wikipedia by felidae, The translated article has been reviewed by a panel of experts to ensure accuracy and quality. This initiative is sponsored by the Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA), Support and access to rural communities provided by Practical Action (formerly ITDG),"

We have lots of articles with this tag & we are now removing them manually. this is not a good way. Then I was thinking about bots in wiki. So could you please tell me how I can resolve this problem.

Should I need to create new bot? (if so How?) Can I use existing one? (if so How I use & run)

I'm having little knowledge about PHP & java. Pls help me to overcome this issue. We need to remove this tag from all articles in Sinhala wiki.

pls reply in sinhalawiki my profile [Binguwa] or

Request for exemption[edit]

Hello Bryan, I was uploading some photos and my limit is over, you could raise it, so I can finish uploading an image that was missing? Truu (talk) 12:41, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

TUSC account[edit]

Bryan, I'm crossing-over from Wikipedia English to here for just a minute so I can ask you a question for User:Leahtwosaints. She wants to know how to go about in getting a TUSC account here on Commons, as she has over 400 images down-loaded. I told her I'd ask around. Can you please respond either back to me or her on Wikipedia (regular) English? Thanks. Best, --Discographer (talk) 20:18, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Flickr upload bot[edit]

I have had the bot uploaded some files of this kind File:Dang Thanh Tam - World Economic Forum on East Asia 2010.jpg but they didn't show up. Please help me, thanks! Nguyễn Thanh Quang (talk) 17:23, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

The flickr bot will not upload this image because the EXIF data contains HTML. You must download it, modify the EXIF to something without HTML (e.g. [...]Copyright World Economic Forum ( Sikarin Thanachaiary[...]) and upload it by hand. --Martin H. (talk) 17:29, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Links naar doorverwijspagina's/data[edit]

Bryan, ik zie dat de pagina Wikipedia:Links naar doorverwijspagina's/data vaak binnen 2-3 dagen al is bijgewerkt (popidom. japiot en romaine vliegen door de links heen). Zou jij die pagina elke 2 of 3 dagen kunnen verversen i.p.v. elke week nu? Of is dat niet mogelijk? Met vriendelijke groet, 08:57, 28 June 2010 (UTC) (Gebruiker:Goudsbloem op nl:wiki)

Mass copy[edit]

Hi. Is there any possibility of a mass copy function being added to CommonsDelinker/commands? Like move cat, but without removing the old category. -mattbuck (Talk) 15:59, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

DRBot overdoing it[edit]

Hi Bryan, I think with edits like these the bot is overdoing it a bit. Those edits dont do anything any good and are a waste of server resources and clutter up the history pages. Perhaps disable the "Normalizing" ? The other functions (archiving) are great however. –Krinkletalk 14:49, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

It is not possible without significant redesign of the archival function. This is because it rebuilds the list every time is reads the deletion listing. -- Bryan (talk to me) 14:55, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
I changed the notifier to output links in DRBot's native style, so a lot less normalization should be performed now. -- Bryan (talk to me) 15:09, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Just in case I missed something, what is the purpuse of normalizing the YYYY/MM/DD deletion request pages ? They aren't broken in anyway, and after being dealt with, the day and month pages are deleted anyway. –Krinkletalk 16:44, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Done. -- Bryan (talk to me) 20:48, 9 July 2010 (UTC)[edit]

Is this still possible images uploaded by Flickr upload bot? I mean to get your bot to upload images from If yes perhaps we should add some help here Category:Images from the project and perhaps make your bot use {{piqs}} or make them more similar. What do you think? --MGA73 (talk) 22:20, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

As far as I remember, I removed support for some time ago, so no new images will be uploaded. -- Bryan (talk to me) 21:29, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Flickr review[edit]

Hi! The bot seems to be lazy at the moment it only marks one image each time. Perhaps you could give it a coke or whatever keeps it going ;-) --MGA73 (talk) 20:16, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Upload from flickr[edit]

On the Flickr upload form, there is a reference to your flickr upload tool. To describe the alternate methods better, I made a proposal for an update at MediaWiki_talk:Uploadtext/fromflickr#Update.  Docu  at 18:55, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Hello Bryan!

I am asking for a exemption for image uploads with your flickr upload tool. I thought admins would get an infinite upload volume. Thanks. Greetings, High Contrast (talk) 11:05, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Flickr upload bot missed some images[edit]

Hi, I was having the flickr upload bot upload a batch of images yesterday, but several of them never were uploaded, even though the token and page editing was completed. Can you check into why they failed? Should I upload them manually now? Thanks much for this tool, it usually works quite well.
