Due to the WMF's forced use of https API requests, a number of my automated maintenance tasks may be interrupted over the next few weeks, and some may be abandoned as not worth the effort of spending time examining them/remembering how they work. Please drop me a note if you think a service should be prioritized for a fix because you find it useful. -- (talk) 13:10, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

As part of the temporary fixes, I have run Noaabot's update from my main account, as the way I hoped to configure it locally failed to work. When I have time to fiddle with it, I will hopefully get the config sorted out. -- (talk) 10:13, 22 June 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.

Then, can you edit this photos for me, please? -- 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)

File:J.Fothergill by F.Bartolozzi after R. Livesay, 1782 Wellcome L0012404.jpg[edit]

Problem here: the image uploaded isn't Fothergill, obvious mismatch with the Wellcome page. Charles Matthews (talk) 08:25, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

The main catalogue has the wrong image, but the image library catalogue has the right description (albeit a brief one) which can be confirmed with other external matches. Corrected and renamed to S.M. Burroughs.
@Charles Matthews: if you were looking for Fothergill, we have the two images on Commons here. Fortunately this was not a case where the images were swapped. -- (talk) 07:22, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Just a casual encounter while I was categorising; Burroughs turned out to be of interest for ODNB reasons. Thanks anyway. Charles Matthews (talk) 07:39, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:British Political Personalities 1936-1945 HU49409.jpg[edit]

Hi Fæ, I added those files to the DR you had already created because from a superficial look, the issues seemed the same (same user, same copyvio tag, same author), and I thought the priority was removing the copyvio tag. I understand your point, however, that it appears a number of DRs would likely be preferable. You have done more research into the issue and understand it better than I do: could you please perform the split, or would you strongly prefer that I do so? Sorry for confusing the issue. Storkk (talk) 16:44, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

No need for an apology, what you did was helpful. Rather than separate into more DRs, I suggest just separating the list so that WW2 photos are split out. There may not be any more than the two discussed for all I know; in which case the DR might be closed by deleting all the rest on the basis of there being significant doubt. :-)
I've spent too long today being dragged to the pointless COM:AN/U drama being created in an attempt to get me blocked, so I'd prefer it if someone else took a look into sorting out the list. Thanks -- (talk) 16:54, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
I've organized them by date, which I hope helps. I am travelling for a week or so starting tonight and can't really invest much more time into this. Sorry for just dumping them on the DR you created. Considering the DR backlog, it will probably not be closed yet by the time I get back, but if it is, hopefully the closing admin will read and understand the issue.
