Hi, Why did you revert Jee? i.e. [1]. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:58, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, User:Jkadavoor, it was a misclick. I clicked something on my watchlist before the page finished loading. --ghouston (talk) 12:01, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
No worries! Jee 12:50, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

Bot request[edit]

Hi Ghouston, is it possible that your bot adds Category:Taken with DJI FC6520 to all files where the exif data contains camera model "FC6520"? --тнояsтеn 10:22, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

It already does. It seems not many have been uploaded to Commons. --ghouston (talk) 10:28, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
We have only those 4 files? I almost cannot believe ;) --тнояsтеn 11:22, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
I workin to change this by adding uploads :) --Ordercrazy (talk) 12:54, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
For completeness: could 'Category:Taken with DJI FC220' (Exif:Model: FC220, ->Example) & 'Category:Taken with DJI FC300X' (Exif:Model: FC300X) also be scanned? - there are currently only 269 and 661 images categorized for Mavic Pro & Phantom IV - is it really not more drone-footage of these two really common models on commons? --Ordercrazy (talk)
The bot only adds to categories with fewer than 100 images already, as discussed at the original request at Commons:Bots/Requests/BotAdventures. --ghouston (talk) 12:44, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, I look forward to seeing you there if you can make it. -- Keegan (talk) 20:54, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

rename template[edit]

Hi! You have cleaned up several of my mistakes and I really appreciate it.

I am having problems with my latest greatest mistake: File:Missing page.jpg, specifically with the template. It looks fine in the preview but after saving the page, the template escapes the requesters name. I filled the whole template in using 1=, etc., but still the problem persists.

If there is anything I can do differently to make the template work right, please let me know.

In my defense, it is a good name for where it lives on my computer....--RaboKarbakian (talk) 17:08, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi RaboKarbakian, your usage of the template looks OK, although the file hasn't been added to the category of files for renaming. I asked about it a Village pump. --ghouston (talk) 23:14, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
It was nice that I could drop this big problem off. Especially as I am currently busy-ish elsewhere....--23:38, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

What properties does Commons need?[edit]


Structured Commons will need properties to make statements about files. The development team is working on making the software ready to support properties; the question is, what properties does Commons need?

You can find more information and examples to help find properties in a workshop on Commons. Please participate and help fill in the list, and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:53, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Speedy tagging[edit]

Fyi, when tagging pages use {{SD|G10}} or {{SD|F10}} {{Speedydelete|G10}} or {{Speedydelete|F10}} format, if you add comments such as {{Speedydelete|G10 because I think so}} it isn't categorised correctly.

If you need to add comments, you can add {{SD |1=G10| 2=this is big advertisement}} or {{Speedydelete |1=G10| 2=this is big advertisement}}

Unless it's unclear, you normally don't need to add a comment.--BevinKacon (talk) 13:18, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

OK, thanks. Previously I only nominated using gadgets, but there doesn't seem to be a gadget that can handle every speedydelete reason. --ghouston (talk) 21:58, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
