Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)[edit]

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 November or Thursday, 10 November 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on mediawiki.org because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:22, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Flag of Mauritania[edit]

Hello. There is currently a discussion on whether the Mauritanian flag should represent its crescent the same way as before the recent added red band change, or represent it as a modified, flatter one. It seem there is more users advocating the first, including me, so I would like to change File:Flag of Mauritania.svg by File:Drapeau de la Mauritanie.svg, as the constitutional change never mentioned any change to the crescent, and so we should use the same one as before. Could you unlock the page so I can do so? Cordially.--Aréat (talk) 20:18, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Guanaco. An an en.wiki admin, I'd like to back up Areat in their request here. There has been a significant amount of disruption caused by editors trying to deal with this in the wrong way (creating alternative files and socking to get that file added in various versions of Wikipedia). Correcting the main file would help put a stop to this. Cheers, Number 57 (talk) 22:34, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
@Guanaco: So, could you please unlock the page? --Aréat (talk) 19:54, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

You gave me Extended Uploader[edit]

Last August, you gave me Extended Uploader rights.

My parents taught me to share, so with some help I decided to share the wealth with 5,988 others. Face-smile.svg - Alexis Jazz ping plz 13:56, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - development update, March 2019[edit]

This text is also posted on the Structured Data hub talk page. You can reply there with questions, comments, or concerns.

A development update for the current work by the Structured Data on Commons team:

After the release of multilingual file captions, work began on getting depicts and other statements ready for release. These were originally scheduled for release in February and into March, however there are currently two major blockers to finishing this work (T215642, T217157). We will know more next week about when depicts and statements can likely be ready for testing and then release; until then I've tentatively updated the release schedule.

Once the depicts feature is ready for testing, it will take place in two stages on TestCommons. The first is checking the very basics; is the design comfortable, how does the simple workflow of adding/editing/removing statements work, and building up help and process pages from there. The second part is a more detailed test of depicts and other statements, checking the edge-case examples of using the features, bugs that did not come up during simple testing, etc. Additionally we'll be looking with the community for bugs in interaction with bots, gadgets, and other scripts once the features are live on Commons. Please let me know if you're interesting in helping test and fix these bugs if they show up upon release, it is really hard to find them in a test environment or, in some cases, bugs won't show up in a testing environment at all.

One new thing is definitely coming within the next few weeks, pending testing: the ability to search for captions. This is done using the inlabel keyword in search strings, and will be the first step in helping users find content that is specifically structured data. I'll post a notice when that feature is live and ready for use.

Thanks, let me know if you have questions about these plans. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:34, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - early depicts testing[edit]

The Structured Data on Commons development team has the very basic version of depicts statements available for early testing on Test-Commons. You can add very basic depicts statements to the file page by going into the new “Structured Data” tab located below the "Open in Media Viewer button." You can use the Latest Files link in the left side nav bar to select existing images, or use the UploadWizard to upload new ones to test with (although those images won’t actually show up on the site). The test site is not a fully functional replica of Commons, so there may be some overall problems in using the site, but you should be able to get a general idea of what using the feature is like.

Early next week I will call for broad, community-wide testing of the feature similar to what we did for Captions, with instructions for testing, known bugs, and a dedicated space to discuss the feature as well as a simple help page for using statements. Until then, you're welcome to post on the SDC talk page with what you might find while testing depicts.

Thanks in advance for trying it out, you'll be hearing more from me next week. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:59, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

File:FC Bayern München Logo 2017.png[edit]

Hi Guanaco, you deleted this file some months ago, but it was already kept after this deletion request: Commons:Deletion requests/File:FC Bayern München Logo 2017.png. So please restore the file. Chaddy (talk) 12:51, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Guanaco is inactive for some four months. @Chaddy: proceed to Commons:Undeletion requests – you can obtain the desired outcome much quicker. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:57, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for the information. I did not know that Guanaco is inactive. Chaddy (talk) 13:00, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
