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 some months. 11:57, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Extra category brackets[edit]

Hi! You have created several hundred pages that contain a category with extra brackets. Are all these categories misstakes that can be deleted? Examples: 1, 2 and 3. Here is a search for this type of error. (It is not only your contributions in that search result.) Svensson1 (talk) 16:56, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for highlighting it. I'll take a look at mass fixing these when I have some spare time. The error should be consistent. -- (talk) 07:48, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Biodiversity Heritage Library[edit]

Martin Kalfatovic is the one to contact with your technical questions. i have pinged him, let me know if i can facilitate some dialog. Slowking4 § Richard Arthur Norton's revenge 01:38, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

@Slowking4: does this relate to an earlier discussion? -- (talk) 07:53, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
no, it just took me a year to notice your uploads there. they say their flickr feed is where to start, but the metadata needs some thought to connect images to doi / oclc number. maybe some wikidata for books and manuscripts will connect the dots. we need a "sum of all books" like sum of all paintings.

Same topic[edit]

May you please also contact me? The quality of the ocr for the descriptions even for documents from the 2000s (e.g. Category:Bonner zoologische Beiträge) is abysmal.--Kopiersperre (talk) 07:35, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

@Kopiersperre: It would be interesting to selectively replace the OCR with new material/transcriptions, or just mass remove it for documents that are impossible to scan (like those with handwritten notes on illustrations). I kept it in as the archive supplied it, and in some cases recognized printed text can help with searching across the collection. -- (talk) 07:53, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
IMHO it would be ideal if all papers in BHL had DOIs and could be linked so from the description page here. OCR should be easy with tesseract, but I'm not a bot man.--Kopiersperre (talk) 08:20, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
It's unlikely that tesseract would do better with scans like this where, for instance the lines are not aligned (or otherwise easy to detect) and the dots on the i are hardly distinguishable from noise. Nemo 16:32, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
@Kopiersperre: Examining the source Flickrstream, the source Internet Archive and the BHL archive site, none appears to have a DOI for this work. If it existed, I would hope that the IA metadata would include it, as the BHL are dependent on the IA digitization for their own site. If the IA were to add DOI at some point, it would be possible for a housekeeping task to check for it and add it. -- (talk) 10:29, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

User:Fæ/Wikinews DRs[edit]

I'd noticed (almost immediately) and wondered but hadn't found a moment to ask, why User:Fæ/Wikinews DRs ceased updates? (I see User:Faebot is still functioning in general.) --Pi zero (talk) 20:43, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

@Pi zero: It's probably one of the scripts I never migrated to Pywikibot core. I may have a check next week, but it's getting busy approaching Christmas. This may seem odd but I have difficulty remembering some of these older reports and they can be very hacky, i.e. throw some stuff at it and stop when it works. -- (talk) 14:36, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
I do know the phenomenon of old software put together with duct tape and chewing gum, yes; I too have written my share (never tinkered with bots, but it's a ubiquitous effect), and yes, it's usually something in one's distant past, because after enough experiences with it one is less inclined to create more of such. --Pi zero (talk) 16:11, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

list GLAM collections imported[edit]

Hi ! One of the way I like to contribute is by browsing mass uploads of GLAM collections and insert files into relevant Wikipedia articles (mainly French, sometimes English as well). I usually start with Commons:Partnerships or outreach:This month in GLAM. Sadly, in none of these pages your uploads are shown, and I know there are plentiful :) Is there a page somewhere where you list all of your uploads ? I went to User:Faebot, but it ends in 2014 :( Léna (talk) 17:27, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

User:Fæ/Project_list has a reasonable list. I stopped contributing to TMIG as I have been unwelcome there since I publicly raised questions about governance around two years ago. Thanks -- (talk) 17:35, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
Thanks ! Urg, sorry to hear about TMIG :( Léna (talk) 10:21, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Greetings Fæ, I hope you don't mind and I am sure you noticed, but I have been working on the US DoD related images. In the process of doing this I noticed there were quite a few images that have templates for User:Fæ/milim and User:Fæ/dodnews. Is it ok if I replace them with the actial Milim and DODnews templates or is this still needed for some reason? It appears this was done temporarily until the templates could be updated but wasn't sure if you had finished doing that so I didn't want to mess you up. Reguyla (talk) 22:43, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Please go ahead. I thought that they had all been replaced, but I probably forgot to finish the housekeeping. Make sure you test them, I don't think there are differences, but the newer templates may now have extra fields. -- (talk) 22:45, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
Ok great thanks and sorry garbled this discussion. I'm not sure how that happened. Reguyla (talk) 23:08, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

In this edition you provide a link to what a "source" is. A source is not the web site where the picture was published (at least when the picture was obviously made before the internet) but who make the picture and where it was originally published. Best regards --Discasto talk 22:20, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Link to policy please? If not, then I assert that the no source template is incorrect if any source is given. This is not Wikipedia. -- (talk) 11:30, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
