June 2015: Bot tasks and some of my semi-automated activities (such as uploads) have broken due to a WMF change to the API that was not designed to be backwards compatible. As I do not have infinite unpaid volunteer time to keep cleaning up, and the WMF are not going to pay someone to fix my bots, this may mean a long time before these work again, or I may choose to leave some broken due to a lack of interest (if nobody asks about a broken bot, I think this is a good sign that nobody misses it). In the meantime, it's summer and life is far too short to spend it debugging old Python modules.

For questions or requests relating to UK Chapter activities, or if you are connected to the UK Chapter, please email me rather than writing on-wiki or on this page.

Flickr users: In addition to my projects of content creation for Commons, I have been experimenting with how to share collections off-wiki. http://www.flickr.com/groups/wikimedia-commons is a Flickr group created for selected GLAM categories, each image linking back to its Wikimedia Commons source.

Faebot too fast[edit]

Your bot seems to be too fast. It added this to Category:MobileUpload-related deletion requests/deleted, but the file is not deleted and has never been deleted. (It will be deleted in a few days, but the bot doesn't know.) --Didym (talk) 18:57, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

This seems to be the first time this has been noted as going wrong. I suspect it may be a character encode/decode problem. Busy with RL stuff, so it may take some time for me to look at this properly. -- (talk) 11:09, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

File:Part of Northfield. NYPL1515717.tiff[edit]

Thank you for adjusting the Viele file (last topic).

This file also doesn't belong with the ID, NYPL 1515717.

Thanks for your help!. Vzeebjtf (talk) 20:42, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

When I looked at the last case, I did notice the file I was uploading as a replacement also exists on Commons under the wrong filename. I'm unsure what the cause was, possible lags in file uploads may have caused some sort of interative issue. If you find more cases, please list them here. My volunteer time is limited over the next couple of weeks, and I have a number of things put on my backlog already, so I would rather let some cases build up and then schodule time to investigate this properly, rather than fix odd cases. Thanks for raising this for attention. -- (talk) 21:06, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Category:Across the Continent on the Kansas Pacific Railway (Route of the 35th Parallel)[edit]

Not sure how much this will interest you, but the scans in this collection are now available in much higher resolutions from the Digital Commonwealth site. This is probably also true of other Boston Public Library collections that were originally downloaded from Flickr, but this collection in particular would benefit, since the actual images occupy such a small region of the scan. Interesting Example URLs. --Junkyardsparkle (talk) 23:24, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

Categorization Request[edit]

Hi Fae. Any chance that you get around doing this? Otherwise, would it be possible, that you could send me the script so I can have a go at it? Amada44  talk to me 09:45, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm happy to tweak and rerun my script, real-life has seriously intervened lately. Out at a museum today and committed to a probate related issue tomorrow, so I may be able to look at it this weekend. My script is unlikely to be easily usable, it probably relies on an old customized version of pywikibot and has a pile of dead code that I would not want to pass on. -- (talk) 10:07, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
@Amada44: Now slowly running. I have commitments today, so if this falls over I may have to kick it again tomorrow. Note that this was made tricky because the Amanda44 temp category had a hidden 'left to right' escape character between the end of the category name and "]]". Unless you were swapping between non-English editors, I'm unsure what would cause that. -- (talk) 05:58, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
P.S. script below, relies on pywikibot compat and it's not pretty!
✓ Done Around 8,500 images now categorized out of 11,500-ish. -- (talk) 19:23, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you soooo much! yeaaa, not many left. Thanks for the script too! I'll have a look at it. Thanks, again! (ohh, and sorry about the hidden left to right. strange,.... don't know how it got there....) Amada44  talk to me 11:04, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

number of files under FOP?[edit]

Hi Fæ, as you are good with numbers. Do you have any idea how to (not manually) count the total number of files in the following categories and their sub-categories?

Cat Total files Total child cat files
Category:FoP-Germany 20655 563
Category:FoP-Austria 1194 24
Category:FoP-Czech Republic 959 0
Category:FoP-Luxembourg 0 38

--Túrelio (talk) 13:30, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

One way of doing this is using SQL on the wiki database, it's *fairly* simple to create a report of the totals. Unfortunately the WMF has been monkeying about with the labs environment so my login keys are not working and I have to work it out again from scratch. I'll not be doing that tonight and probably not tomorrow. You might try Steinsplitter, though they are probably not all that available. -- (talk) 19:28, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) I can’t test it at the moment, @Túrelio, what with Labs being down, but this sounds like something CatScan could help with: if it doesn’t display a count (which is what I wanted to check) it should at least be able to produce a list that could be enumerated with a text-line-counter.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 23:47, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Catscan reports include a total. To automate multiple queries, you can pull the results as JSON and the page count is in the summary fields. However, as you mention, none of this appears to be working right now. -- (talk) 04:02, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
✓ Done Just add the main cat and child cat totals to get an overall total. These are live numbers pulled from the SQL database, I think that using Catscan2 would be a better repeatable solution if sub-sub cats are wanted.
P.S. Just because these are images that appear under FoP categories, does not mean that any change in EU copyright would be limited to these files. Many images marked as public domain or similar may be affected, and these are probably a magnitude higher than the above numbers. -- (talk) 06:10, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
Many thanks, Fæ. --Túrelio (talk) 06:53, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Historic American Buildings Survey[edit]

A belated thanks for all the HABS image that you have been uploading. It is an enormous service that you've incorporated much of the HABS text in the descriptions. It makes it easy to create or add more specific categories. I salute you. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 15:54, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

SCOTUS ruling on marriage equality[edit]

If you happen to upload/transfer images related to SCOTUS' ruling on marriage equality, please add them to this page. It would be really great to have a gallery illustrating reactions (positive or negative) to the ruling throughout the U.S. Thanks! -Another Believer (talk) 18:39, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks so much for adding images. I see you are adding all sorts of images. If any of them can be grouped together by date/location, feel fee to make a gallery of them or point me in the right direction. I am trying to curate galleries for Wiki Loves Pride (2015-related content) and the June 26 ruling (especially of rainbow-lit landmarks) at ENWP, so the more the merrier! --Another Believer (talk) 17:25, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
I find categories a lot easier as they maintain themselves. You may consider if we can create a categories that do the same job, and distinguish between LGBT rights protests, individual same-sex marriage celebrations and "state level" or official celebration of LGBT equality. There is already a large number of categories around LGBT Pride and LGBT History that these fit under. -- (talk) 17:31, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Agreed re: categories here at Commons. I am referring to the curated galleries at ENWP. They are really just intended to illustrate Wiki Loves Pride participation and to inspire people to upload images in their area. For example, I found a group of images you uploaded from Dublin, so I created. Wikipedia:Wiki Loves Pride 2015/Dublin. I was really just wondering if you uploaded other clusters of images from 2015 LGBT events. --Another Believer (talk) 17:38, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
I tend to put them in categories and will think about your gallery suggestions. I've uploaded a couple of thousand LGBT pride photos in the past, a few hundred were my own photos. I was at the London Pride event on Saturday, so have a handful of decent new ones of my own to upload. I'll experiment a bit more with date based Flickr searches, but this may be tomorrow (I have customized an upload script today and used it to upload the photos you've noticed. The script filters for higher resolution images, license type and photo taken date as well as preserving Flickr tags, sets and pools where they exist). -- (talk) 17:45, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Sounds great! And no worries if you have other things to work on. I just think the curated galleries are interesting and illustrate WLP participation and events around the world. The June 26 project is sort of separate -- I was collecting images related to the ruling, not only because the illuminated landmarks are fun but because there is no Commons category to group these images otherwise. I'll see if I can't do some searching on Flickr for other pride events and rainbow-lit buildings. --Another Believer (talk) 17:50, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
