Bilder-Atlas zur wissenschaftlich-populären Naturgeschichte der Wirbelthiere (Plate (38)) BHL4024111.jpg

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)

Please note any issues here, or drop me an email, and I'll take a look, including pausing any tasks if there are unexpected patterns of failures, when I'm next at the keyboard (which might only be once a day). 08:51, 27 November 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.

Category:Monograph 1[edit]

90% of the scanned photos in this Category were incomplete and up for Speedy Delete. Please re scan the series and place in this Category. Thanks WayneRay (talk) 19:16, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

I am up to my elbows in real life stuff (for example a radiator fell off the wall today...) so though I can think of potential solutions, I haven't the time to try out methods, including possible ways of hunting them down without relying on volunteers noticing haphazardly. If these are not deleted straight away, I suggest adding them to a "needs reuploading" category. I can later add a housekeeping task to deal with these and any similarly identified bad uploads.
If this is due to WMF server glitches, it would be nice if the WMF could find a way of spotting damaged files. Thanks
Note to self... SHA comparison can do this, but should be limited to likely affected by time or maybe upload subject and hence common category. It requires N + number detected so bandwidth and processing heavy. Would be 2N but Commons API gives it directly... Investigate BHL API2 for SHA. (talk) 10:33, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! Adam Cuerden (talk) 19:07, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

@Adam Cuerden: You can use {{Duplicate}} to do this. Some duplicates of archive images have value as they might be different prints or scans of the same original photograph, presumably there's no case like that here. CommonsDelinker applies automatically for deleted files, and as I have no admin rights I cannot do the housekeeping here. Thanks -- (talk) 09:48, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

About COM:ANU and deleted userpage[edit]

<trimmed, see history>

Regards, --Alan (talk) 10:14, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

@Alan: Thanks. I understand the deletion and agree with it. I think this is just a case of talking it out with the user and maybe pointing out some user page good examples they can follow. User pages are not normally general CVs, however some contributors do have a lot of detailed personal info, so it's genuinely not obvious for new users. -- (talk) 10:17, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Fae, files such as File:Le cabinet de la Bibliotheque de Sainte Genevieve BHL40987811.jpg could also be speedied, or any objection? --Túrelio (talk) 10:19, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

No problem with you doing what you think best. As above, I'll look into an image detect and repair script, if the size of the problem seems worth it on analysis. However anything like this may take several weeks due to real life being rather demanding right now (in fact, it's darn exhausting). -- (talk) 20:14, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Adding the volume field to Internet Archive images from bound serials[edit]

Hello, Fæ! Still concerning the clump of files heaped onto Category:The Street Railway Review (Vol. 1, 1891) which belong mostly in its sibling cats, I have been awaiting your bot’s slow work of adding to their "information" template the field "volume" (as done, for instance, for this file). I’ve been monitoring a few random examples still categorized as Vol.I (this one is actually vol.XIII, this one is vol.2, etc.) and the addition of that additional field hasn’t happen yet. Do I need to do anything to remind the bot of this? (And, by the way, thanks for all this.) -- Tuválkin 13:25, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks to the reinstated GalleryDetails gadget (yay!), I just checked painlessly all file contents of Category:The Street Railway Review (Vol. 1, 1891), and noticed that some of them do have the volume field added, but only those which actually belong to Vol.1, and none to other volumes. I’m guessing this is due to their incorrect categorizing as such, and I’ll now move all others (those lacking the volume field) back to the top cat Category:The Street Railway Review, whence your bot will be able to pick them up. Let me know if this is a mistake. -- Tuválkin 13:31, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Okay, sorry about the mess. Forget all of the above, what matters is this: Right now at Category:The Street Railway Review there are 181 file pages lacking the field "volume" in their "information" template. Can your bot work on these, please? That would allow one step of dissimination into the yearly cats, from which manually each file can be categorized by issue (month, mostly) and also by subject.
If your bot cannot do this right now (or at all), it is not a big deal, as there’s still hundreds of images to sort in the yearly cats, and anyway 181 is manageable should it need to be tackled manually in the future.
-- Tuválkin 13:54, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Running as requested example. It only does 1 every 50sec, but will complete today. Fortunately I had code lying around that will do this sort of thing (I'd forgotten about it), so though I'm short on volunteer time this can still be sorted out as I only needed to kick it rather than write something :-). -- (talk) 20:11, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Awesome, many thanks! -- Tuválkin 21:27, 20 November 2015 (UTC)


It was both rude and inappropriate... it was also, IMO, more a comment from someone who tends to be unintentionally rude a lot, instead of an actual personal attack. I'm not a fan of Colin, but the single comment, as stated, was not worth sanctions... it would take some history of such things, and ignoring people pointing out that it's not acceptable. I do, personally, have issues with Colin's 'method of discourse', I just don't think this was in the pattern of his general behavior. Revent (talk) 08:39, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

I think Revent's comments are closest to what I would agree with, and thank Revent for showing some common sense. It was clearly not "a nasty personal attack" as you and Jmabel claim. To interpret it as such requires a mountain of bad faith. Revent is right that I should have known you would fly off the handle and take offence, rather than treat an example at face value. I did not intend to cause offence. And for that misjudgement and causing needless offence, I apologise, and do so sincerely. -- Colin (talk) 09:58, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

@Revent: the request was closed too early, giving just half a day for anyone to notice the thread and give a view or interpret policy and guidelines, for Colin to consider a better public response than the one he gave, or for him seek advice off-wiki. Forcing a shut-down of discussion hastily like this, just means the problem will remain unresolved and is likely to reoccur. Giving a "trout" for using "gay" offensively does not help, it makes the noticeboard feel like a locker-room with mates horsing around, rather than recognizing that this crossed a far more serious line. Colin's "apology" here is nothing like an apology, just a continuation of his offensive behaviour which puts words in my mouth I never used ("nasty personal attack" was never said by me) and then is a platform for accusing me of bad faith and dismissing the problem he created as me flying off the handle. Colin has specifically not accepted that anyone that uses "gay" as a term of offence is turning this project into a hostile environment for all LGBT people.
@Colin: the apology you are giving here is not a meaningful apology. From this example and earlier angry diatribes from you on LGBT and homoerotic subjects, you appear to have a long term problem. It's up to you to find a way of changing your viewpoint or just keeping it quiet rather than bringing it to this project.
Your comments and aggressive responses are on record, you can expect them to be presented if similar problems involving LGBT hostility are caused by you. There are plenty of LGBT contributors on this project that will remain concerned that this was left unresolved. -- (talk) 10:24, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Jmabel called it a "nasty personal attack". Your words were "an ad hominim attack" + "hostile anti-LGBT language", which amounts to the same thing. Can you stop splitting hairs and finding faults where none really exist. I fully agree that Commons should not be a place for "locker-room" language or where some frat-boy attitudes prevail and go unchecked. People who are genuinely intolerant of others, whether they be of a different sex, religion, sexuality, race or nationality, and who express hostility towards others because of that, should be shown the door. Absolutely. I'm disappointed that you bring up earlier conflicts we had on LGBT issues, because all of them reflect extremely badly on you, Fae, and should anyone seek to analyse that history, you might find yourself under sanction for having a "long term problem". I caution you against continuing this dispute, and particularly against playing the "Wikimedia terms of use" card. You might wish to retain that option for when you are genuinely under attack, and nobody will listen to you then if you keep crying wolf. -- Colin (talk) 10:50, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Go away. Your rants manage to be both boring and offensive. You (not me) deliberately injected the abusive use of anti-LGBT language into a discussion that had nothing to do with LGBT issues. It is easy to understand why you did that in response to an openly gay contributor. As a founder of Wikimedia-LGBT+, I will not gloss over the use of homophobic language by others, as well you know. -- (talk) 12:27, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
< Further deliberately offensive trolling rubbish and allegations from Colin removed. [1] >
@Colin: what I wrote included the possibility, "If you didn't intend this to insult Fæ, you picked your words terribly," which is pretty much what Revent is saying. - Jmabel ! talk 19:17, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I am suggesting an interaction ban between Fæ and Colin, maybe for 3 months or longer. I think this is the only solution if these two will not stop. Be civil you two. Poké95 11:24, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
@Pokéfan95: I do not recognize your account against past interactions, with relatively few edits and it being created with a-typical contributions across multiple projects just a few weeks ago, I am concerned about you popping up here on a user talk page that would normally be unnoticed by new users. If you would like me to reply to your comment, could you connect your account with the name of whatever past account has interacted with me? Thanks -- (talk) 20:47, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
Hello. No, I am not connected with another past account. If you will see, I am a native Tagalog speaker and en-4, and come from the Philippines. So it is impossible that I have a previous account. If you are still in doubt, I am will personally message you my IP address. If you will see in my IP address, I am at Batangas, Philippines.
I notice your problem between you two because I saw a discussion about a problem with Colin at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems. Then I also saw your problem between you two at your previous RFAs (with the recent being 2015). I looked further, and still, it is almost the same. So I thought if an interaction ban can solve this problem. This may be sound rude, but this is my third opinion, if you two don't want to be interaction banned, stop this issue, and apologize each other. You two need to be civil. Did you forget that if someone insults you, you should ignore it instead?
However, I agree with you that the discussion at AN/U is closed too early, maybe that is just half a day. That prevents other users to provide opinions and third opinions. Cheers, Poké95 10:33, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

File:V1 Flying Bomb BU406.jpg, incorrect information[edit]

Wherefrom is your information that this launching ramp is from the Belloy-sur-Somme site (No 155)?

It is the same ramp as shown here, today exposed at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford. But it is from the La-Chaussée-Tirancourt site (No 157) situated 3200 m southwest from the Belloy-sur-Somme site. See also here.

Please indicate the source of the cited information or correct it. --Хрюша ?? 11:58, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

@Chriusha: Fae imported that image (as he does with many) in an 'automatic' manner... the metadata given (the description) is what was provided by the Imperial War Museum, at the source url. If there is an error, it's not Fae's. Revent (talk) 12:46, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

File:Annual report (1903) (14565351888).jpg and date[edit]

I know you used a bot to upload this, but do you have any idea where the 1903 date comes from? It's certainly wrong—the signature on the image clearly shows the date 1907, and this is confirmed by the accompanying text—which would also seem to cast doubt on dates of other dates in related uploads. - Jmabel ! talk 08:30, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

If you visit the catalog page on IA, you can see the volume is given as "10th/11th/12th 1903/04-1905/06". The year IA is using is the first year of publication for the journal range (1902), rather than the year of the specific volume in the journal. The housekeeping routine has actually done its job and corrected the year from 1902 to 1903, however this is best we can do with automation in this case as 3 volumes are bundled together in one scan. We might have teased the information out of the back-link reference to IA, but "101112" is just the same 3 volume numbers.
That some contents in the last volume (1905/06) include material from 1907 is probably not a "mistake", though I have not spent time reviewing the detail. For institution reports the final data is often based on the financial year which may conclude in the next numerical year. -- (talk) 08:39, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
If I'm correcting this by hand, is there any issue with overwriting the existing incorrect data? That is, does that all need to be preserved and I add a note, or do I simply make the correction as if any human uploader had made a mistake? - Jmabel ! talk 08:44, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
Not sure :-). I suggest just making the correction and saying something meaningful in the edit comment. VFC might be a good way to find all matching pages to change. My housekeeping should be aware of manual changes in the page history and try not to overwrite them, they are getting to be smarter than me... -- (talk) 08:47, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
