MAD BOT - I am trying out slightly different remote multiprocess tasks. If the speed of these is a problem for you in some way, let me know; though they should be significantly slower than what is possible for ordinary users with VFC or tools like cat-a-lot. For urgent problems please send me an email alert.

Due to the WMF's forced use of https API requests, a number of my automated maintenance tasks may be interrupted and some may be abandoned. Please drop me a note if you think a service should be prioritized for a fix because you are using it. -- (talk) 11:47, 26 May 2016 (UTC)


(Backlog task)
After a recent village pump discussion on Biodiversity Heritage Library duplicate files, the batch upload will continue but I shall be spending some time researching how to map the BHL uploaded jpeg files to their zipped/archived JP2 equivalent pages. If this is possible, then lossless PNG equivalents can be generated or significantly higher quality jpeg versions created than are available from BHL. Keep an eye on User:Fæ/Project list/Biodiversity Heritage Library for the results of investigation in a few weeks. 11:57, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

For requests relating to Chapter projects, or if you are connected to the UK Chapter, please email me rather than writing on-wiki or on this page. I am an independent unpaid volunteer and a founder of Wikimedia LGBT+, with no affiliation or current membership of any other organization.

Couple of points:
  1. These are fairly time consuming to process, but I'm happy to look at them. It may take me several days.
  2. Not all Cranach images can be created without watermarks. The ones where there are watermarks on the 'underpinning' image are not worth uploading unless we are desperate for any example image and the watermark is in a corner where it is realistic for some clone-stamp edits could make it vanish without damaging the scan noticeably. Update Every image identified above has underpinning watermarks, it seems to be the minority that do not, and this varies by source museum.
-- (talk) 18:19, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Hello! Thank you very much for your help. Watermarks can be removed in Photoshop. Sincerely, Igor--IgorSokol (talk) 21:15, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Okay, I'll plan to do all on the list. They'll appear in the gallery below as they happen, feel free to overwrite with any de-watermarked versions you create. -- (talk) 12:35, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
Cranach gallery

Many thanks for the pictures. If you have the time and desire to continue the gallery of portraits I will be more grateful. There are a few images that I'm interested. Best wishes--IgorSokol (talk) 18:40, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

Bonus gallery[edit]

Hi! If you are not difficult, it would be nice to see these portraits. Yours sincerely--IgorSokol (talk) 09:31, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

WMF request[edit]

As the WMF has taken a position that anyone working with banned users may need to find a way to prove they have done so "innocently", and this is taken from a position of bad faith, my work uploading from the Cranach archives puts me at risk of an unappealable WMF office block due to the nature of your account. I have asked the WMF to confirm their position for this past work at m:User_talk:WMFOffice#IgorSokol. If you wish to put a case that you are not a banned user, I suggest you take this up with any of the interested WMF employees behind this position, such as @Mdennis (WMF), Kalliope (WMF):. Thanks -- (talk) 11:34, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

More photos for commons[edit]

Then, can you edit this photos for me, please? --87.5.73.94 07:39, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

WMF request[edit]

I will look into it over the next couple of weeks. Note my clearing this with the WMF due to recent threats from WMF employees. Thanks -- (talk) 18:23, 10 May 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, after reading the bad faith allegations from User:Jalexander-WMF, I will put this on hold unless I get a statement from the WMF that is not an implied threat to block me were I to investigate the uploads. Thanks -- (talk) 08:47, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
The discussion on meta with the WMF does not appear to have lifted the presumption of bad faith for your use of IP addresses. Thank you for the suggestion, but I am unhappy being placed under the direct threat of an unappealable WMF office block should I help you with these. If you wish to put a case that you are not a banned user, I suggest you take this up with any of the interested WMF employees behind this position, such as @Mdennis (WMF), Kalliope (WMF):. Thanks -- (talk) 11:24, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

Re: Category:Public-domain-image.com (check needed)[edit]

Hi, Fæ. What kind of check is needed for the files in this category? --Rrburke (talk) 10:18, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Only that the categories make sense. Some images in this collection were reversed, if that is noticable (say by writing being the wrong way around) then they probably need fixing digitally first. -- (talk) 10:32, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

API change will break your script[edit]

Hello Fæ,

I noticed that you have been operating a script or bot that is using http:// to access the API, rather than https:// This is going to break soon, because of changes to the API. You can find more information in this e-mail message. If you need help updating your code to use https:// , then you might be able to find some help at w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard or on the mailing list. Good luck, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 23:00, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

@Whatamidoing (WMF): Is there a log I can refer to? If I have to migrate bot jobs from compat to core, it would be much better if I could prioritize and avoid changing those that are unaffected. By the way, Commons has its own bot noticeboard and it would be inappropriate for me to use the English Wikipedia's noticeboard for bots that do not touch that project. Thanks -- (talk) 06:22, 20 May 2016 (UTC)
I don't know if you can see https://logstash.wikimedia.org/#/dashboard/elasticsearch/api-feature-usage-http (requires an LDAP password; try your wikitech.wikimedia one?) All I know is that this account made 1000+ requests using http:// during one week, and that Fæbot and Noaabot each made 100+ requests during the same week. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 17:43, 20 May 2016 (UTC)
@Whatamidoing (WMF): I cannot see the log. I have tried my wikitech account and my SUL account. -- (talk) 11:34, 21 May 2016 (UTC)
Looks like it's locked down to only certain user groups. I'll ask one of the devs to get us some more details. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:16, 21 May 2016 (UTC)
Update: as of the middle of last week, only Faebot was still appearing in the list. I hope that this means you were able to get the others updated. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 04:53, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
@Whatamidoing (WMF): Noaabot only runs manually, it has not changed. I'm still hoping for more details, having yet to see any logs (wikitech password, labs password etc. do not get me in to logstash.wikimedia.org). There's no chance that I'm going to rewrite everything to pwb core, so I need to prioritize and let some stuff die (there's quite a bit that I doubt anyone will notice if they never run again). -- (talk) 08:14, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

DoD / DVIDS PD release of images by non-military photographers[edit]

File:Women speaking at the podium on summit.jpg[edit]

Hello, I just wanted to ask you, what is the copyright status of the photos behind the people on the stage in this image? FredWalsh (talk) 21:33, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

They are most likely public domain as photos taken by the FWS or as part of their projects, as this is the National Conservation Wildlife Center. See http://training.fws.gov. I have added the original FWS source page to the image page. If they turn out to not be PD, then they are sufficiently incidental to the summit to be de minimis. -- (talk) 21:38, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

File:A view of the town of Boston with several ships of war in the harbour. Vol. I (NYPL Hades-118247-54194).jpg[edit]

Hi Fæ. Could you please explain to me why you think you have improved this file (and a number of similar files) by adding an extra thumb of "other versions", pointing to a file that was already referenced? Are two thumbs just better than one? Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 04:36, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Because I've been running some maintenance on more recently uploaded NYPL files which are in Category:NYPL The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs: Print Collection. This older file is not in that category, but it is linked by the UUID to one that is, and so got picked up in a smart search as a gallery link (44d2bda0-c5ed-012f-092a-58d385a7bc34). I have changed the maintenance to find duplicated cross-links, including where "_" is used rather than " " in the image name, which seems to be the difference between how the uploads are formatted now, compared to 3 months ago.
