Koscioly w Polsce[edit]

Witaj. Sorry, ze po polsku - rzecz dotyczy jednak naszego "polskiego podworka" wiec tak bedzie szybciej. Od ok. polowy 2009 rozpoczalem kategoryzowac koscioly w Polsce wg powiatow z pod roznych "dynamicznych" IP. Poczatkowo istnial jeden wariant typu "Category:Churches in Wejherowo county" wystepowal obok niego wariant pisania county z duzej litery "Category:Churches in Limanowa County" - sam nie wiem ktory byl/jest poprawny. Jednak i tu dotarlo to nasze "slynne piekielko" mejd in "chaos totalny" i "burdel na kulkach". Obecnie mamy juz nstepujace warianty: "[[:Category:Churches in starogardzki powiat", "Category:Churches in Sztumski powiat", "Category:Churches in powiat wejherowski", "Category:Churches in Powiat Ciechanów", "Category:Churches in Wieliczka powiat". Zauwaz prosze na roznorodnosc zapisu kazdej z kategorii - roznice w szyku i ortografii. Wlozylem w to bardzo duzo czasu a teraz kazdy wg wlasnego "widzi misie" gotuje zupke wg wlasnego przepisu. Czy Moglbys jako admin na commons wplynac na to zeby "polskojezyczni-userzy" wypracowali jakas obowiazujaca formule i zeby wszystko ponownie mialo rece i nogi a przede wszystkim jednolity wyglad? W sumie to nie rozumie co ludzie maja przeciw zwrotowi "county" w swiecie angielskojezycznym przeciez jest doskonale rozpoznawalny jako drugorzedna jednostka administracji. Tysiace moich edycji wykonalem z przeroznych IP w przerwach na ostrych dyzurach i z tego tez wzgledu chce zostac anonimowy - ale doprawdy rece i nogi opadaja gdy widze ze i tu dociera "nasz hurra-animusz" - prosze Cie zrob cos z tym - na prawde szkoda mi tego co tu zrobilem. O ewentualna odpowiedz prosze tu. Wszystkiego dobrego w Nowym Roku. 77.187.10.48 12:36, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Popatrze na to i odpisze. --Jarekt (talk) 15:47, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
Temat ten byl dyskutowany w Commons:Bar#Category:Churches_in_Podlaskie_Voivodeship_by_county i w User_talk:WlaKom#Category:Churches_in_Mi.C5.84sk_Mazowiecki_powiat. Rzeczywiście bałagan jest ale sadze ze się to wkrótce poprawi. Stworzyłem Category:Churches in Poland by powiat by łatwiej bylo te kategorie poznajdywać. Wygląda na to ze User:WlaKom ciezko pracuje zmieniając nazwy na formę Category:Churches in Powiat Otwock (zobacz np. Category:Churches in Masovian Voivodeship by powiat). Jego praca powinna ujednolicić różne warianty nazw. Także zauważ ze te zmiany nie niszcza twojej pracy: wszystkie pliki które zkategoryzowales sa nadal w pod-kategoriach Category:Churches in Poland by powiat. Mysle ze powinieneś się zkontaktowac z User:WlaKom i User:Yarl którzy pracują nad tymi kategoriami. Także rozumiem ze chcesz zostać anonimowy ale mozesz cały czas redagować anonimowo i zarejestrowac się by miec tutejsza skrzynkę pocztowa i ulatwic komunikacje z toba. Takza trudno mi wyobrazić kategoryzacje na Commons bez gadżetów jak Cat-a-lot czy HotCat które sa tylko dla zarejestrowanych uzytkownikow. Pozdrowienia --Jarekt (talk) 15:10, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Odp. Category:People by name[edit]

Sorry. Faktycznie wyrzuciłem przed chwilą kilka. Myślałem że są przez omyłkę, gdyż nie widziałem ich wcześniej. Teraz, masowo, układam "Priests from Poland". "Clergy of Poland" już poukładałem. Próbuje katolików włożyć w standardową nazwę "Category:Roman Catholic priests from Poland". Jest tego bardzo dużo. Co do powiatów to się zatrzymałem gdyż Yarl obiecał że zrobi to szybciej botem. Pozdrawiam. --WlaKom (talk) 16:10, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

(Arab) Słowacki[edit]

Witaj. Ta pozycja jest w kategorii "Books by Juliusz Słowacki" która w całości jest juz zawarta w kategorii "Polish Wikisouce books", z tego powodu trzymając się drzewa kategoryzowania, pozycję zamieściłem w kategorii zawierającej dzieła Słowackiego. Tak samo w przypadku Marii Konopnickiej, kategoria "Books by Maria Konopnicka" jest w całości zawarta w kategorii "Polish Wikisource books". Tommy Jantarek (talk) 20:00, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Przepraszam, nie zauwazylem. Tradycyjnie individualne ksiazki nalezaly do Category:Polish Wikisouce books, wtedy jesli ktos doda ksiazke która nie jest czescia projektu Wikisouce to nie trzeba zmieniac wszystkich kategorii. Ale o ile te ksiazki sa wciaz w podkategoriach Wikisouce to nie mam z tym problemu. Dziekuje za wyjasnienie. Pozdrowienia. --Jarekt (talk) 01:58, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
Ależ nie ma za co przepraszać :). Już poprawiłem. Pododawałem kategorie "Books by..." żeby trochę kategorię "Polish Wikisource books" uczynić bardziej przejrzystą, gdzie robiła sie juz mieszanka najprzeróżniejszych książek bez ładu i skladu. Treaz jest troszeczkę przejrzyściej a i nasi autorzy są bardziej rozreklamowani, bo dotad nie byli zawarci w ogóle w kategorii "Books by author". Pozdrawiam. Tommy Jantarek (talk) 06:38, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Template:Creator has extra curly braces[edit]

Hi Jarekt, it looks like the template has too many "}}"s in the birth/death location. See Template:Creator, or Creator:Karl Holleck-Weithmann for an example use. Lupo 20:28, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Opps, I fixed {{City}} --Jarekt (talk) 20:35, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Adding creator tempaltes[edit]

Please don't add creator templates to redirected categories as here. --Foroa (talk) 12:46, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know I never run into one of those before. I will be watching for those cases on the future. --Jarekt (talk) 02:20, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

creator template[edit]

May-be a creator template for Pablo de Céspedes ? --Havang(nl) (talk) 18:29, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

There are many hundreds of artists we have categories for, but no creator pages. I am thinking about a way of creating many of those in more automatic fashion. --Jarekt (talk) 02:22, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Over at Wikisource, Phe has lookup feature that helps to prefill our author template. en:s:User:Phe/Author fill.js. It may be useful as part of the task. If it was operational, even as a local plugin, I would utilise it as part of my crawling. So not automated, but a field fill would be helpful.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:06, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Template_talk:TemplateBox#Add_parameters[edit]

Gday. For {{book}} there has been a request to edit Template:TemplateBox, did you want to handle that?  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:01, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

✓ Done Thanks --Jarekt (talk) 17:02, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Toolserver User Screening Control[edit]

--Jarekt (talk) 20:39, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Template:Unknown[edit]

The above edit seems to have broken the template – especially the unclosed bracket at the end of the {{#if:}} function. I didn't know how you'd like to fix it (there should be a warning or an empty space if the argument is not filled, see #if), so I decided to remove it. Feel free to add it back. Best, odder (talk) 00:41, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Fixed. Thanks for letting me know. --Jarekt (talk) 02:38, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
I am afraid that it was not working anyway, so I have closed the end bracket again. Should be all right now. odder (talk) 11:41, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
Well, there still remains a problem; the template adds a non-existing category – see File:IndependenceAirheadquarters.jpg as an example. odder (talk) 19:07, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Fallback problem in Template:CountryAdjective and Template:Occupation[edit]

Hi Jarek. Are you able to help with this fallback problem? --Leyo 17:06, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

I will look at it. Leyo, does the whole fallback system work for translatewiki translated templates like {{Information}}? --Jarekt (talk) 20:18, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
It seems that you fixed the problem. Thank you. As far I can remember, I never had problems with {{Information}}. --Leyo 10:46, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
I am not done yet, {{NationAndOccupation}} is not using fallback mechanism at the moment, but I will try to fix that too. --Jarekt (talk) 13:33, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Prośba[edit]

Cześć,

mam prośbę techniczną - czy mógłbyś dodać botem do Category:Photographs by Krzysztof Dudzik wszystkie pliki, które załadowałem (bez tych, w których nadpisywałem starą wersję)? A jak nie, to do kogo się zwrócić? Pozdrowienia ToSter (talk) 18:36, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

(nie przejmuj się tytułem "photographs", nie-zdjęć jest na tyle mało, że je ręcznie wyłowię potem) ToSter (talk) 18:37, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Wielkie dzięki :) ToSter (talk) 20:05, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Nie jestem pewien czy wszystkie znalazlem. Szukalem plokow z "Krzysztof Dudzik" które byly przez ciebie edytowane. --Jarekt (talk) 20:07, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
No właśnie widzę, że nie wszystkie, bo wcześniej podpisywałem się tylko nickiem. Pododawałem do kilku, zanim odkryłem, że jest tego więcej: [1] na dole i kolejne strony. Myślę, że najprościej zaznaczyć wszystko, co ja załadowałem, a ja już popoprawiam odstępstwa. ToSter (talk) 20:20, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Chyba reszta jest tutaj. Dodam do kategorii za jakies 5 godzin. Wyrzuc z tej listy pliki ktorych nie chcesz. Pozdrowienia. --Jarekt (talk) 21:06, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Świetnie, dzięki, już wyrzuciłem. ToSter (talk) 22:12, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

With regard to the text editor bug (Village pump)[edit]

Hi Jarekt! Some time ago, you posted at the Village pump about an error with the text editor box on Commons. There was a bug raised about this issue, and it appears that a recent upgrade to Wikimedia's software has resolved the problem. If possible, could you please check to see whether you are still experiencing this issue, and make comment at this link - you will need to register an account on the Bugzilla to do this. If you don't want to register an account there, you are welcome to comment here and I will transfer your comments over to the Bugzilla so that the assigned person and others may see them. Thank you for the original report, and we hope the error is now fully resolved. BarkingFish (talk) 03:56, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Bot -> creator[edit]

Cześć. Zwróć proszę uwagę na takie i takie przypadki. Bot pominął fakt, że autorów było dwóch... Pewnie takich sytuacji nie ma wiele (?), ale jednakowoż to dość istotna pomyłka. Cancre (talk) 17:37, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Dziekuje, to nie bota omylka tylko moja. Bot jedynie kopiuje zmiany z mojego arkusza kalkulacyjnego. Bede uwazal na ta mozliwosc w przyszlosci. --Jarekt (talk) 02:36, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Poprawilem wiele moich edycji. --Jarekt (talk) 03:39, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Jarektbot[edit]

Please be careful when you have your bot make changes to files and their creators. Here it added the wrong creator: The book's creator is Knud Knudsen as I originally wrote, not Knud Knudsen whose creator template your bot has inserted. This applies to the following files: File:Udkast til Retskrivning i Skolen.djvu, File:Om tilnærmelse mellem Norsk, Dansk og Svensk.djvu, File:Det norske maalstræv.djvu, all of them written by the former Knud Knudsen, but now incorrectly labelled as having been written by the latter Knud Knudsen.

Similarly, the collected works of Jonas Lie have been marked as having been written by Jonas Lie: File:Jonas Lie - Samlede Værker 1-2.djvu, File:Jonas Lie - Samlede Værker 3-4.djvu, File:Jonas Lie - Samlede Værker 5-6.djvu, File:Jonas Lie - Samlede Værker 7-8.djvu, File:Jonas Lie - Samlede Værker 9-10.djvu, and File:Jonas Lie - Samlede Værker 11-12.djvu. This one is particularly egregious as the former Jonas Lie is a well-known Norwegian author, whereas the latter is a less well-known American painter. This is the same mistake as you made in the create temple Creator:Jonas Lie, where you inserted a picture of the former Jonas Lie, whilst the template is about the latter Jonas Lie.

I hope you will have your bot revert these grave errors, and that in the future you ask the original uploader before making major changes to files. V85 (talk) 08:36, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

V85, disambiguation is a problem with no good solution. Both files which were in directories containing works of multiple people and all bot was doing was to add creators to files which were categorized into categories with creator templates. I will split the categories into disambiguated categories. That is also an issue if category name here matches article name in wikipedia of an article for a different person. That causes problems too. Any other categories needing disambiguation? --Jarekt (talk) 13:59, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
I fixed those 2 categories --Jarekt (talk) 16:53, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Damage to file descriptions[edit]

Hi Jarekt, could you stop Jarektbot. It messes up file descriptions. See f.i. File:Van Loo Naked Man and Woman.jpg and File:Jan de Baen- De lijken van de gebroeders de Witt.jpg. I don't know what the extent of the damage is sofar, but it probably is better to look at it first before continuing. Regards, Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 10:38, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for alerting me. I think I managed to automatically fix problematic edits. Let me know if you find any which are still problematic. --Jarekt (talk) 13:28, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Category:Abel Grimmer[edit]

Hello, Jarekt, can you add creator template etc. at Category:Abel Grimmer to the 2 files of Montfaucon? I have photographed all 12 month, but the quality is poor. I uploaded 2, do you want them to have all 12 uploaded? Greetings, --Havang(nl) (talk) 15:10, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

If we do not have them than that would be useful, but poor quality images might not be usable. You will have to make this call. --Jarekt (talk) 02:51, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
See this image for what the quality is approx.:
Montfaucon (Haute-Loire, Fr) Grimmer (1592) Les 12 mois, mai.JPG
. I'll upload the full series after you have made of this file the file description with creator template, so that I can copy that. --Havang(nl) (talk) 10:31, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
How about this? --Jarekt (talk) 03:17, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
Nice, thanks, all 12 uploaded. --Havang(nl) (talk) 11:22, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Błędy[edit]

Niestety muszę donieść o kolejnych błędach bota (tj. Twoich ;). Tutaj nie tylko wstawiony błędny autor (!), ale też skasowane info o autorce fotografii, czyli de facto historia jak wyżej. Ten akurat przypadek mam w obserwowanych, ale zapewne bot mógł zrobić wiele podobnych edycji, których nie zauważyłam. Cancre (talk) 16:12, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Kolejne, z tej samej beczki (tutaj). "Dzieło XYZ" a "dzieło z warsztatu XYZ" to fundamentalna różnica... Cancre (talk) 16:14, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
Poprawilem 4 pliki gdzie skopiowalem Witkiewicza zamiast Wyspiańskiego. Takze poprawiam pareset "atelier". Tej grupie plikow do poprawienia (tym razem jakies 3k) szukalem "attributed", "after", "workshop of", itp. ale po francusku nie rozumiem i sie "atelier" zgubilo wsrod "Painter:", "Artist:", "Graphics by" itp. w paru jezykach. Dziekuje za pomoc i jesli cos jeszcze znajdziesz to mi powiedz. --Jarekt (talk) 02:48, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
Może być też "school of..." (tak jak tu). Cancre (talk) 15:25, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
Sprawdzalem wszystkie wymienione tutaj. Pozdrowienia --Jarekt (talk) 02:58, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Web Gallery of Art[edit]

Jarekt, I notice that your bot has added Web Gallery of Art category. Good idea, but I was wondering if it wouldn't be better to add it through {{from WGA}}. Source categories are often added this way, as they are flat and should not be editable through Hotcat and other gadgets.--Zolo (talk) 16:29, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

By the way, I think {{artwork}} could be added to the files in this category. The main concern with switching from information to artwork is to avoid mixing up photographers and artists in the same field, but it should not be a problem with these files.--Zolo (talk) 21:34, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
I did not know about {{from WGA}}. I will use it next time. I am thinking about updating all the files in that set based on metadata from WGA, which can be downloaded. I am also thinking about uploading the rest of the images from that collection. --Jarekt (talk) 01:55, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Great thanks.--Zolo (talk) 07:31, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for your work on the link but there seems to be a problem with the "info" url (see here for instance]).--Zolo (talk) 09:02, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
I think they changed the website design within last few weeks and you can not get to the info pages directly. I hope it is not permanent. I might just disable Info link in the template, but still record it in case they fix it. --Jarekt (talk) 12:33, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
Actually I think you can get to the info page but url have to be modified slightly. I will try to fix it.--Jarekt (talk) 12:40, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

People by name[edit]

Hi. I notice your bot is adding Category:People by name to dozens (or possibly hundreds or thousands) of categories such as Category:Alphonse Maeroudt. But without also adding default sort, doesn't this defeat the whole purpose of Category:People by name? – Mu (talk) 21:12, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Few times a year, I do one pass to add Category:People by name and a different pass to add defaultsorts. Those quite different tasks and are not easy to combine. --Jarekt (talk) 01:58, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Blank spaces in templates[edit]

Hi. FYI, your bot is leaving line breaks at the end of very highly-used templates. I fixed one here but could you please fix the rest? Otherwise, every {{vd}} looked like this:

Delete

I definitely think this should be deleted...

Thanks. Wknight94 talk 05:19, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

I fixed some and will check the rest. Thanks for letting me know. --Jarekt (talk) 13:33, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

{{#ifeq:"{{Str left|{{{Artist|}}}|1}}"|"<"|[edit]

Jarekt, I have tried to do something similar to what you have done in {{artwork}} in inscription. It seems to works for span but not for poem. There shold not be the square quotation marks in File:Tianzhu-chenshizeng1915.jpg. Any idea of what happens ?--Zolo (talk) 06:39, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

I do not know much about <poem> tag but {{Str left|<poem>12345</poem>|3}} gives "" instead of "<po". --Jarekt (talk) 14:07, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Oh yes I had not realized that <poem> was a mediaWiki extension not an HTML tag. I suppose that it does not work the same way.--Zolo (talk) 08:03, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Creator template[edit]

WGA[edit]

Your project is amazing! Thank you! The probelm is that I write about art on it.wiki and sometimes I do need good images right now, not in some months.. so in case I will need to upload some pictures by the way, but now that I know I will just upload the strictly necessary ones... Ora maybe can I tell you the artist I will need shortly so you can start uploading them files now? I will need for next months Tiziano, Sebastiano del Piombo and some other minors. Let me know. Thank you. Good Luck with your project I'm so looking forward to seeing the results then! --Sailko (talk) 20:45, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Category:Children in Nazi Germany[edit]

Witam!

Tutaj jest dużo zdjęć poza Niemcami właściwymi w granicach z owych okropnych czasów. Pomyślałem, że z racji "en-4" jesteś najlepszą osobą, którą mogę poprosić o wymyślenie zgrabniejszej nazwy, rozwiązującej ten problem i zaprogramowanie bota. Pozdr. --Starscream (talk) 09:41, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Category:Children in Nazi Germany jest dosyc dobra nazwa zakladajac ze tereny okupowane sa czescia "Nazi Germany" nawet jesli sa poza Niemcami właściwymi. Inna mozliwosci to: "Children in Nazi Occupied Countries", "Children in Nazi Occupied Territories", "Children under Nazi Rule". Chyba najbardziej lubie ta ostatnia. --Jarekt (talk) 13:20, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Creators[edit]

Three creators which may deserve a template: Category:Jac Maris , Category:Piet Gerrits , Category:Charles Hammes. Greetings --Havang(nl) (talk) 15:43, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

I would like to create templates for as many artists on Commons as possible, but right now I am concentrating on artists with works in Web Gallery of Art. --Jarekt (talk) 15:51, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Advice needed[edit]

Hello Jarekt. About a year ago I was nominated to adminship, which ended fail - here. I would like to hear your opinion if you think it is time for a new attempt, and general feedback about my work. thanks in advance matanya talk 07:12, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

My main objection last year was "minimal involvement in Commons". From what I can see you were quite involved since then. If you reapply and let me know I will be happy to be one of the first to support you. Prior to that I would suggest cleaning a bit user:matanya page, which will have much more visitors. I would add babel templates to inform others about what languages can they use to communicate with you. I would also add a short notice about other username you used on Commons and maybe interwiki links to accounts on other wikipedias where you are mostly active. Also on unrelated subject, I do a lot of work with assisting with multilingual support to various templates. We have active speakers from many languages supporting that effort but Hebrew language support is much more sporadic. Can I ask for help if run into templates needing attention from Hebrew speakers? --Jarekt (talk) 17:57, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your advice. I'll do so. Feel free to ask me for help on Hebrew related subjects, and on any subject I can be of a help. matanya talk 06:52, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Zmiana nazw grafik[edit]

Witam Pana! Jako IP:80.171.90.12 zadalem sobie dzis sporo trudu i w sumie zmarnowalem sporo czasu. Niestety uzytkownik "Logan" bedacy najprawdopodobniej odpowiednikiem "wszystkowiedzacego polskiego gimnazjalisty" (w negatywnym zrozumieniu) "obrocil" ten caly wysilek w niwecz. Oczywiscie dla tego Pana w calej Polsce a takze w calych zasobach graficznych polskojezycznych i nieangielskojezycznych userow istnieje tylko jeden jedyny "dawny mlyn", jedno jedyne "rondo turbinowe" a firma "NAZWIJMY ja X" moze miec swoja filiale tylko w jednym miejscu i dlatego wystarczy ze grafika nazywa sie "firma x". Ponoc w zyciu obowiazuje zasada "gdy sie na czyms nie znam to sie do tego nie zabieram".

Uwzgledniane powody zmian mozna znalezc w Commons:File renaming (strona zostala przetlumaczona na 10 lezykow ale nie na polski). Zgadzam sie ze przyklady plikow kture podales maja nie najlepsze nazwy i twoje proponowane nazwy byly duzo lepsze, ale twoje przyklady nie podpadaja do zadnej kategorii powodow do zmian podanych w Commons:File renaming. Powodem jest ze wiekszosc uzytkownikow commons nie uwaza nazw plikow za wazne - opisy plikow powinny byc jak najdokladniejsze, specifistyczne i poprawne, ale nazwy plikow powinny byc unikalne i nie kompletnie bezsesowne jub bledne. --Jarekt (talk) 01:55, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

LangSwitch template[edit]

Hello Jarekt, thanks for rewriting the LangSwitch template. I was wondering if it would be possible for you to add some inline HTML comments in the template code so that the logic is easier to follow. Thanks! Also you might be interested in Bugzilla28596. Kaldari (talk) 23:30, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

About the delete of Template:Ordinal/fr[edit]

Since a few day, with french display, the {{other date}} template did not work anymore for centuries because of the deletion of Template:Ordinal/fr. This template was apparently used for {{other date|century}} french translation.

For exemple in the today image : File:Fontaine Diane Fountain Diana Anet Louvre MR 1581, MR sup 123.jpg.

Can you revert your delete, or repair the french display of {{other date|century}} option ? Miniwark (talk) 08:23, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

Renaming[edit]

I was wondering why you renamed File:Rondo-turbinowe-01.jpg to File:Rondo turbinowe w Bielsku-Białej.jpg when the rename request had previously been declined[9] and no valid reason listed in COM:MOVE was cited? --Tony Wills (talk) 05:35, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

I renamed this and 2 other files recently after an IP asked me for assistance in this matter. I did not see harm in renaming since his proposed names were much more specific, files were not used on any wikipedias, the process did not add to workload of anybody but me and IP was rather unhappy about the work he put into coming up with deletion requests which are not being acted on. I explained to this rather active and secretive IP, why his rename requests were being rejected and Commons approach to file renames. I was hoping to prevent future labor on his part on unnecessary tasks, which adds to the workload of others who have to evaluate requests and act on them. At the same time I am trying to follow do not bite the newcomers philosophy. I do not expect I will be renaming other files like this. --Jarekt (talk) 12:49, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Question about category add[edit]

Hi, a while ago you added Category:Julia Margaret Cameron to Category:Julia Margaret Cameron: 19th Century Photographer of Genius, despite the statement on that page that: "This is not a subcategory of Category:Julia Margaret Cameron because not all photos in this book are by her." I was worried I'd have to revert the images to add back Category:Julia Margaret Cameron to most of them, but it looks like you added Category:Photographs by Julia Margaret Cameron where appropriate so that's not so bad. However I'm curious about your justification for adding the cat, did you add it just because the book is primarily about her or what? Thanks. Dcoetzee (talk) 23:10, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

To tell you the truth I do not even recall working on this category - it was over a year ago. It was probably when I was going through categories with largest number of associated Creator pages, and making sure they have proper subcategories. I probably categorized Category:Julia Margaret Cameron: 19th Century Photographer of Genius as a sub of the Category:Julia Margaret Cameron because any book about a person should be probably categorized under this person category. This way we could have Category:Books about John Ruskin and Category:Books by John Ruskin, both subs of Category:John Ruskin.--Jarekt (talk) 00:59, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Hmm you're right. If the subcategory of Photographs by her did not exist I would be concerned that we were implying all photos in the book are by her, but as it stands that is not a concern. This is fine and I'll revert myself. :-) Dcoetzee (talk) 01:31, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Nepal[edit]

You created the initial templates and told me to fFill the blanks at Template:PD-NepalGov/en and Template:PD-NepalGov/doc, but I am just as confused as I was in looking at some other completed templates.

I still think we need this country government template. What next? Ww2censor (talk) 15:36, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

If you could replace line "|text = This image is in the public domain because ..." of Template:PD-NepalGov/en with English text of the license, including links to appropriate documents. If needed I will correct formatting afterwards. You could also fill "|desc=" field of Template:PD-NepalGov/doc with explanation for purpose of the template and when to use it. This section can be more verbose than license itself and provide examples. However if the template is self explanatory than I will just copy something from other license templates. --Jarekt (talk) 15:50, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Template:NARA-image-full[edit]

Thanks for your help with the template. You might want to take a look at how it appears for one of the files it is used on: File:To the Women of the Republic.tif. I'm not quite sure "Artist" will work on all these files, since many are not art, especially textual documents. "Accession number" also doesn't make much sense in this context. I have also been putting {{NARA-cooperation}} outside of the template under the assumption that not all NARA documents necessarily come from the cooperation with the institution; there were many here already, and many already available on the web that people will take. Dominic (talk) 16:08, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

I see what you are saying. I think {{Artwork}} is better than {{Information}} (which is lowest common denominator mostly meant for self made images) but it is not optimal. We could create customized template from scratch or create generic template {{Record}} ({{Document}} ?) which will join {{Information}}, {{Book}} & {{Artwork}} as one of the basic templates each image should have. Than NARA-image-full could be based on the generic template which will take care of all the internationalization of field names. --Jarekt (talk) 17:18, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
I don't to make this any harder than it needs to be. Really, I just wanted to map the elements in NARA's catalog records with template parameters, so that one doesn't need to use a standard template and guess where they go. I am just hoping to make these description pages more structured. Whatever needs to be done to make that happen is fine with me, but I feel a little helpless because all that template code is a little frightening to me. ;-) I really appreciate your help. Dominic (talk) 17:33, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
Dominic, I quite comfortable writing templates, so if you need any I can write them for you. In the mean time I created new {{NARA-image-full/sandbox}}. Please check {{NARA-image-full/testcases}} and tell me what you think, especially about 2 types of description and "Record ID". --Jarekt (talk) 18:59, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
That looks great. I would bring the location line ("Center for Legislative Archives (NWL), National Archives Building...") above the Institution:NARA box so it is more prominent, but that's all I can think of. I was also planning on adding another "General notes" parameter for that field in the records (e.g. [13]). This is written by the archivist, so it should probably go in that same section, set off from the scope and content somehow. It's usually just brief, specific citation or document information that did not fit within the other fields. Dominic (talk) 20:02, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
I will add "General notes" parameter. BTW about Institution:National Archives and Records Administration I was thinking about reserving this one for Washington DC and creating other ones for other NARA locations (College Park, etc.). Is there a finite number of values "location" parameter can take so we can use a switch statement to pick correct template? --Jarekt (talk) 20:44, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
There is a finite number, but it may be a lot. There is the main National Archives with a DC and College Park branch, but both also have multiple divisions represented in catalog entries. There are also more than a dozen presidential libraries and more than a dozen regional facilities, plus a couple of affiliated institutions. I think this is the full list below. Dominic (talk) 16:40, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
We could create categories and Institution templates for all or some of them. That is how it is done with many other institutions. We should definitely have different institution templates for each presidential library. We already have Categories and articles for most. I think we need separate category and Institution template for National Archives at College Park, and two military academy archives. I am uncertain about regional archives, if some of them cold many records for which we will have files we should separate them too. --Jarekt (talk) 17:29, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
I think that most of the documents come from the DC-area facilities, but I have also observed that it is quite rare for most Commons uploaders to have actually noted on image description pages such information. Certainly,most of the materials I will be uploading come from College Park. Dominic (talk) 16:26, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
Lets do this then, if materials came from Washington location or unknown NARA location we use generic Institution:National Archives and Records Administration. But for everything you upload use specialized templates like: Institution:NARA, Institution:National Archives at College Park, specific presidential library template or others we might need to create in the future. --Jarekt (talk) 16:58, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

A further thought on the credit line guidance.

creator work period[edit]

Nice to see the Creator:Ulrich Apt (I). I am just wondering wondering if work periods like Northern Renaissance are useful. Not considering that this is not strictly speaking a work period, it seems pretty redundant with life dates and work location. I think work period mostly makes sense when the period is shorter than the artist life dates.Zolo (talk) 05:28, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

If this is used to indicate a style - like mannerism - rather than simply a period, maybe it would best fit into the "description" field, though I am not sure on how it should be done (using a {{art movement}}) ?--Zolo (talk) 05:44, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

In the past when switching from Descriptions to nationality/gender/occupation when I encountered something like "Description=Italian Renaissance painter" I was converting it to "Nationality=italian|occupation=painter|workperiod=Renaissance". With the WGA artists I was trying to match each one to existing creator template. If none existed than to commons category or en wiki article, and than I was creating creator templates based on those. If none still matched (633 cases) I created brand new creators and categories based only on WGA data. WGA artist table, one of the sources of the info (along with DB) has a column called Period, which I used as Workperiod. I piped it through {{Period}} with the thought that I will internationalize it by adding translations to that template. --Jarekt (talk) 02:36, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
This seems pretty thorough. I know that many websites use a "period" parameter to classify artists. Yet "work period: Renaissance" sound a bit odd to me. Either we consider that the Renaissance is simply a historical period and then it is redundant with life dates/location, or we consider "Renaissance" to refer to an artistic style and then I think it belongs to the "description" field.

{{credit line}} need Style parameter since the code is very different for Information template than for other templates. The default is Style=wiki, or the style used by {{Information}}.

Hi. Any idea how to add a dot in dates in the file summary fot sl lang (atm 2011-07-22 is shown as 22 julij 2011, should be 22. julij 2011)? --Sporti (talk) 19:41, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

✓ Done should be fixed now. See {{ISOdate|2011-07-22|sl}}: --Jarekt (talk) 19:53, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
Yes that did it, thanks. --Sporti (talk) 20:00, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

How about AD (sl: n. št.), BC (sl: pr. n. št.), season names and where to enable gen/ins forms of date? --Sporti (talk) 11:55, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

See {{Season}} and {{Era}}. For enabling gen/ins forms of date - you enable it in {{other date}} and if you provide me with proper forms of your months I will put them where they need to go. --Jarekt (talk) 12:46, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
Can you also check {{Institution}}, and templates called by {{Creator}}: {{occupation}}, {{CountryAdjective}}, {{NationAndOccupation}} and {{nationality}} templates? --Jarekt (talk) 12:49, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
Gen already exsists, here are others:
Nom Loc Ins
januar januarju januarjem
februar februarju februarjem
marec marcu marcem
april aprilu aprilom
maj maju majem
junij juniju junijem
julij juliju julijem
avgust avgustu avgustom
september septembru septembrom
oktober oktobru oktobrom
november novembru novembrom
december decembru decembrom

--Sporti (talk) 14:30, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

✓ Done Let me know if you would like to activate them in {{other date}}. Also in case of dates (like 2011-07-23) should month be in nom of gen form? As you can see in Template:Date Polish and Russian use gen form. --Jarekt (talk) 02:47, 24 July 2011 (UTC)
It should be in nom when its just a date and yes I would like them activated (but don't know if I have to do anything; ATM it doesn't work where gen form is set in {{other date}}: first half of July 2011 ({{Other date|firsthalf|2011-07|sl}})). --Sporti (talk) 07:16, 24 July 2011 (UTC)
Lets do this: go to Template:Other_date/testcases press link "Slovenščina" and you should see this page. Let me know which entries are wrong and what they should be. Or if you would like to debug it yourself than go to Template:Other_date/sandbox, adjust it, go back to Template:Other_date/testcases and purge the page to see the changes. --Jarekt (talk) 04:16, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
There already is gen form for sl in Other date in 3 cases ( |sl=Prva polovica {{ISOdate|1={{{2|}}}|2=sl|form=gen}}), but other forms don't work ({{ISOdate|1=2011-07|2=sl|form=gen}} => ). I think they need to be activated first in {{Date}}.--Sporti (talk) 05:53, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
I activated "form" parameter in {{Date}} for sl language, but I am not sure it is correct. Other languages with activated support for "form" parameter have different months forms for YYYY-MM and YYYY-MM-DD style dates. Please check the Template:Other_date/testcases and tell me which cases do not work. --Jarekt (talk) 17:19, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
It's mostly ok now in the sandbox and gen/ins/loc is working. But in some cases (like beginning parameter) I would need to make a different rule for YYYY or YYYYY-MM input date. --Sporti (talk) 06:13, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
I moved code from sandbox to Template:Other date. As for remaining issues do you think changes to {{Date}} would fix it. Look there at codes for other languages to see what can be done.--Jarekt (talk) 12:13, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
I don't think it's in {{Date}}. For example in the beginning parameter [now |sl=zgodnje {{ISOdate|1={{{2|}}}|2=sl}}] (and some others) it should be something like this:
  • if year (YYYY): |sl=zgodnje leto {{ISOdate|1={{{2|}}}|2=sl}}
  • if month and year (YYYY-MM)/else: |sl=zgodnji {{ISOdate|1={{{2|}}}|2=sl}}
I don't see anything like that in the template, but maybe you could count number of chars in {{{2|}}} (4=year, 7=month+year)...--Sporti (talk) 13:06, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
Solved it with {{str find}} (searches for '-'). Where can this be fixed {{int:exif-unknowndate/sl}} => neznan datum - first letter should be in lower-case?
{{str find}} is great but horribly expensive template - I did not know someone imported it from en wiki. I would like to avoid it if possible since {{Other date}} has a lot of trouble with expansion depth limit. Do you think you can write it using much cheaper {{Str ≤ len}}? --Jarekt (talk) 14:21, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
I don't think so - year is usually YYYY, but it might have less digits. Well the only problem I can think off is something like 1-12 (december of the year 1) which has 4 chars like 2011. Hm.. is the a way to test if a String is an Integer - year would pass, but year-month wouldn't?--Sporti (talk) 14:47, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Would {{IfNum}} be better? --Sporti (talk) 14:54, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
{{IfNum}} would do it. {{IfNum|1999-09-09|number|not number}} gives "not number". {{IfNum|1999|number|not number}} gives "number". --Jarekt (talk) 15:06, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

If {{IfNum}} is fast enough, it's finished. You can transfer it and thanks for your help. --Sporti (talk) 15:18, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
I updated {{other date}}. By the way, I was fixing some templates in Category:Creator templates without home category and run into Creator:Jožef Zalar. In the future can you create category for all the works of each creator and add it to the all the files using this creator template? See any other Creator template home category for usual format. --Jarekt (talk) 15:42, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

There is a small mistake somewhere in the {{NationAndOccupation}} templates ( {{NationAndOccupation|m|SI|athlete|playwright|jurist|lang=sl}} => 'slovenski športnik , dramatik in pravnik' - there is a space before and after the comma), but can't figure out which template is it. --Sporti (talk) 13:17, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting keep.svg Fixed It was an extra new-line in the end of {{Occupation/sl}}, between "}}" and "<noinclude>". See last change here. --Jarekt (talk) 13:26, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Double nationality also doesn't work properly (it did until recently) {{NationAndOccupation|m|SI/AU|athlete|lang=sl}} => 'slovenski-avstralski športnik' (should be slovensko-avstralski športnik). --Sporti (talk) 13:56, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting keep.svg Fixed I do not think it it could have worked before "sl" was treated using default syntax (same as english). I changed it to allow "special" form of the first nationality, and since you have already created {{CountryAdjective/sl}} with "s" option it works. By the way, I think you do not need "{{#if:{{{3|}}}|an|}}" in that template. Most languages do not use it as it is purely English construct. See for example {{CountryAdjective/pl}}. --Jarekt (talk) 14:15, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

I've also added some new occupations in {{Occupation/sl}}, but there are still many missing especially from sports. --Sporti (talk) 07:12, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

That is great. I know those templates take time to translate and often push the limit of the language (at least Polish language I was editing). For many occupations it is unclear if female version is the same as male. Also with some countries, if I have never heard of such country than I do not know what person from such country would be called in polish for example in case of ST (in Polish ) I would rather use construct "[occupation] from [countryname]" than "[country adjective] [occupation]". Also it does not help that I do not use Polish language regularly in last 20 years. --Jarekt (talk) 14:15, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, it's working now. Can you add new "occupations" from Category:Sportspeople by sport and Category:Skiers to {{Occupation/en}}? Just don't know how to resovle problem with athletes (now it's used as a synonym for sportsperson).--Sporti (talk) 14:49, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

We can and often do add new occupations to {{Occupation/en}}, but that template is already so large and unruly that people are reluctant to add large volume of new ones. It is mostly used by Category:Creator templates, and different sports are rarely used as occupations of artists. There is large number of occupations in Category:People by occupation which are not represented in the template. At some point it was suggested that only occupations for which phrase "Famous ..." make sense should be included. What is the problem with athletes in SL language? in polish I just used "|sportsperson|athlete=sportowiec", in CS "sportovec/sportovkyně". --Jarekt (talk) 15:48, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
Well I used the template for category description of people too ... (Category:Stanko Bloudek) And there's nothing wrong with athlete, only if you were adding those sportsmen, it can mean a sportsmen in general or a track and field events competitor. --Sporti (talk) 05:44, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
That is a good use of the template. Lets do this: change {{Occupation/en/sandbox}} and {{Occupation/doc}}, and I will move your changes to {{Occupation/en}}. --Jarekt (talk) 12:31, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
Added some more, mostly from sports.--Sporti (talk) 13:48, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Wrong upload category[edit]

Hi Jarekt. Your bot have upload in the Category:Museo archeologico nazionale (Naples) a lot of paintings wich are in Prag, not in Italy, and sure not in the archaeological museum of Naples. Can you rectify this mess ? Thank you very much. Cheers, --DenghiùComm (talk) 16:09, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

My bot is replacing {{Information}} templates of about 2k files which come from WGA with {{Artwork}} templates with the same metadata as the one provided with new uploads by the same bot. But you are right I should be checking for "superseeded", DR, and several other templates images might have and should not be removed. I will also have to check on Institution categories.

Other problems with bot-categorizations[edit]

Hi Jarekt, There is really a problem with your bot. Not only in Category:Museo archeologico nazionale (Naples), but now also in the Category:Muséum national d'histoire naturelle are uploaded a lot of paintings which are of other museums (here from the museums of Naples (Capodimonte), Ghent (Fine Arts), Boston (Fine Arts), etc.). Now I try to put in the correct category the paintings that I know they are in the Museum of Capodimonte, but it's a big work...! Please can you verify that your bot works correctly ?! There is so a lot of work to do everywhere. If we have to do also all these corrections, it will became soon impossible ! Thank you very much ! Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 08:55, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

More problems with Categories: drawings vs. prints[edit]

Dear Jarekt, I also recognized some wrong categories: on June 4th, your bot uploaded several prints by Albrecht Dürer. Although the data "Medium" clearly states that these are prints (engraving, etching, woodcut, ...), these files ended up in different categories of "drawing" ("drawings of Albrecht Dürer", drawings of institutions, ...), although it should be "prints". --HBook (talk) 00:19, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Dürer[edit]

Cześć. Mam pytanie: czy tak duża ilość wersji tego samego dzieła (User:Kekator/Brudnopis) jest pożądana na Commons? Kekator (talk) 03:40, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Nie nie jest pożądana. Commons trzyma często parę wersji obrazów, bo każdy ma trochę inne kolory ale jeśli chodzi o czarno-białe grafiki to 1-2 wersje powinny wystarczyć. Jeśli chcesz to posprzątać to:
  • wybierz najlepszą wersje: często to jest wersje z największą liczbą pikseli ale nie zawsze
  • zsynchronizuj metadane: identyczne grafiki powinny mieć identyczne opisy.
  • dodaj szablon {{duplicate}} do grafik gorszej jakości
Niektóre grafiki Dürera są czarno-białe a inne w naturalnych kolorach jak ta kopia teraz wygląda - zostawiłbym obie. Dobrej zabawy --Jarekt (talk) 13:14, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Data inaccuracies[edit]

Dear Jarekt, I wish to thank you for uploading the pictures from WGA. But it is not to tell this that I am writing to you this message. I noticed that JarektUploadBot has made some changes, which are incorrect (e.g. François Boucher (?) and his studio vs François Boucher: [15] [16]; 212x312 vs 210x313: [17], etc.) or inexact (e.g. Salon of 1745 vs first half of 18th century:[18]; ca. 1718 vs first half of 18th century: [19], etc.). Thank you.
--Thorvaldsson (talk) 12:06, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

My bot was running a script aimed at synchronizing metadata of of already uploaded images from WGA. There were about 5-6k images from WGA (binary identical to the images found at WGA) on Commons before my mass upload and a lot of them have hardly any metadata and very few categories. My bot was aimed at adding missing metadata and assigning categories while preserving metadata and categories provided by the Commons users. User:JarektUploadBot has the links to the source codes I used and User:Jarekt/WGA was used for final merge. In some cases when I have both Commons and WGA descriptions I went with Commons version ( for example title, medium, etc.). In other cases I tested commons version for presence of internationalization templates and when detected used them otherwise used WGA version (author, institution) and with some fields I just used WGA version if present (Source, date, dimensions). With such a large number of images manual verification of all changes was not possible but I verified several hundred edits and majority of them were fine. However I noticed that in some cases the additional information provided by Commons users was lost. You found some of them too. That is why in change summary I added "Please check!". Sorry for additional work that causes. --Jarekt (talk) 13:58, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

I have to say that I find Overview and notes to template talk:Authority control rather confusing. I am also not sure what you mean by "migration and i18n" - starting those templates on other wikipedias? As for current version of template:Authority control: do you see any need for additional changes?

Batch Uploading of Mount Lemmon SkyCenter Images[edit]

Hi Jarekt, Thanks for responding to my request for help on the village pump. I have a copy of the .zip file containing the images here. Do you think you would be able to batch upload them?

I am also not sure about descriptions and dates. Please let me know if you need any more information. Many thanks, Originalwana (talk) 17:30, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Open Access resources as an ongoing donation to Commons[edit]

Dear Jarek,

I am contacting you because your entry at Commons:GLAM#Participants indicates that you may be willing to help with mass uploads of media, which is what I am looking for.

I am Wikimedian in Residence on Open Science and working on facilitating the reuse of Open Access materials on Wikimedia projects. As such, I would like to explore the possibilities of systematic upload of suitably licensed Open Access materials - images and media onto Commons and potentially the full text onto Wikisource. Would that be of interest to you?

There are two components to that (addressing the backlog and updating frequently) and two major sources from where the files could be harvested (from individual publishers or from large Open Access repositories like PubMed Central).

If you see a way to get the ball rolling on either of these ends, I would be glad to discuss details. For a start, please see this discussion of bot support for Commons upload of image files from an Open Access publisher that already uploads them automatically to a MediaWiki installation, though not yet to Commons.

Thanks and cheers,

Hi Jarek, thanks for your offer to help. Providing such metadata spreadsheets should be doable. I will prepare one for a test run. --Mietchen (talk) 20:37, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
Hello again. It took a while, but now such a spreadsheet with metadata has been prepared for testing purposes. As far as I can tell, none of these images have been uploaded to Commons till date. Please let me know if you require any further information. Thanks a lot! -- Daniel Mietchen - WiR/OS (talk) 00:41, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi,

Your explanation is OK to me. I just revert my previous revert. Regards, Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 16:24, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

change to {{information}}[edit]

Hi, I reverted your change to {{information}} as it caused problems with templates in the permission field - it caused the template to go directly into the info table, and then close it. Please sandbox any further revisions before applying them to such a highly-used template. -mattbuck (Talk) 12:51, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

The changes were tested in the {{information/sandbox}} and {{information/testcases}}. I dod not understand the description of the problem. Can you provide examples of templates that caused trouble? --Jarekt (talk) 12:56, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Where do we configure the header component for new articles in Creator: ns?[edit]

I have had a poke at MediaWiki:Newarticletext and cannot see that we have the components there to add the template preload component for the Creator. Would you mind telling me where that is configured, as I am idea shopping for similar namespace at enWS. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:07, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

It is MediaWiki:Editnotice-100 for creator, and similar for other pages. This page call {{editnotice load}} -> {{Editnotices/Namespace/Creator}}->{{Creator/preload}}. --Jarekt (talk) 03:03, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

allegories[edit]

It is the cycle from 14 objects about World War 1, which is only in Perm Gallery, in one place. (I had an article about them ru:Аллегории Денисова-Уральского). He also made animal statuettes, but they aren't allegorical, it was his unique work of that genre. Shakko (talk) 09:08, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Edit warring[edit]

There seems to be some kind of collaboration going on between two users, SupremeDeliciousness and Nableezy, who keep changing the data on pictures I upload and are using my contributions to the Commons to continue edit warring on subjects they are fighting about on Wikipedia. Can something be done to stop this? I see they have both been blocked on Commons before--Gilabrand (talk) 19:59, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Anybody has rights to update other people image descriptions. If changes are not correct or are removing useful information than they should be reversed, if changes are malicious than they are considered vandalism and should be reversed and reported. However looking at edits by User:Supreme Deliciousness and user:Nableezy to your images, I do not see anything wrong with them. For example, in [21] there were 2 changes: category removal - which was fine, the image was overcategorized since once you have city level category Category:Gilo you do not need country level one Category:Places in Israel. The second change removing Israel from description of Gilo, also seems correct: according to wikipedia en:Gilo it is in the West Bank, not in Israel. I think all such images should be in subcategories of Category:Israeli settlements in the West Bank, but categorizing or describing them as being part of Israel will cause pointless edit warring. I am surprised that nobody requested file rename of File:Israel - Banias waterfalls 002.jpg and other similar files. --Jarekt (talk) 20:56, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Handling various formats with {{NARA-image-full}}[edit]

Hi Jarek. I wonder if I could ask for some more template help? :-)

I've realized that my decision to use a "TIFF" parameter with yes/no options in the beginning wasn't a great idea. My reasoning was that I wanted to be able to easily identify the high-res master files of images, assuming that JPG versions and other derivates would end up in some of the same categories as the originals. Now I am systematically going through and uploading JPGs myself so end users don't have to. I think what I want to do is turn Category:Media contributed by the National Archives and Records Administration into a top-level category, rather than filling it with files, which would have subcategories like Category:High-resolution TIFF images contributed by the National Archives and Records Administration, Category:JPG images contributed by the National Archives and Records Administration, which would have the same files in different formats, and (later) similar categories for sound and video.

Right now, the template works by assuming anything not a TIFF is a JPG. It would be much neater if there were a "Format=" parameter, and I have bot simply input the file format there; that way it could also handle sound and video in the future, as well as DjVu/PDF or whatever else we might have. Does that make sense? Do you think you can handle the template change? Dominic (talk) 14:31, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

I will look into it. --Jarekt (talk) 20:31, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
I think we will need to run a bot to switch all TIFF=1 to format=TIFF. --Jarekt (talk) 21:13, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
I can do that part easily enough. I thought a parser function might be able to make "TIFF=yes" equivalent to "Format=TIFF" and everything else ("TIFF=no" or that argument is missing) equivalent to "Format=JPG". I can clean it up with my bot using pywikipedia, but it will take a while to edit all the tens of thousands of pages, and there will be breakage in the meantime otherwise. Dominic (talk) 21:21, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
I never liked the name of {{NARA-image-full}}. May be what we should do is to use this opportunity to rename it to {{NARA-information}}, {{NARA-record}}, or something similar. That way we can write the new template with "Format" but without "TIFF". You can switch your bot to use the new template and change already uploaded files at your leisure. --Jarekt (talk) 14:45, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
Sounds good. "Description" would actually be the archival term of art, but that's probably confusing with the other fields we have on Commons with that name. I'm also fine with "information" or "record" or whatever you think works well. Dominic (talk) 20:09, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Iw[edit]

Hi Jarekt,

Good work with the interwikis for various people. Once it's done, would you consider running it on Category:Ships by name as well? --  Docu  at 08:42, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Sure, it might take a while but I will get to it. The interwiki code (in automatic mode) only adds interwikis to pages that have at least one. You can greatly help the process by adding at least one iw link to each page that does not have one (if possible) --Jarekt (talk) 10:11, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
I generally try to link en_wiki (or at least one with an article), but not necessarily all others.
BTW, for people, the "hint" function might help. You could try to use that on Swedes with sv, Italians on it, etc. This should keep false matches fairly low. --  Docu  at 10:45, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
I am afraid of hints, since I have seen a lot of pages where en wikipedia name matches commons name but the person is different. I am writing a python code that will try to match people categories with no interwiki links to several wikipedias by matching the name and date of birth or death. BTW adding interwikis is not uncontroversial. --Jarekt (talk) 10:55, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
Well, some admins are more used to checking potential copyvios than Category namespace. --  Docu  at 10:59, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
Given the size of the current task, you might want to run a separate instance just on ships. --  Docu  at 04:50, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
Ok, Category:Ships by name has much fewer interwikis so it is processing quite fast. --Jarekt (talk) 04:35, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Looks good. Thanks. I might try to work on an update of Commons:Bots/Work_requests/Archive_5#Categories_w.2Fo_interwikis. --  Docu  at 06:11, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
You can find list of subcategories of Category:Ships by name with no interwiki links here. --Jarekt (talk) 11:57, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I wonder if should add them all to a category. This way I could use Glamorous to find places where images from these are being used. --  Docu  at 12:11, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
I do not know if Glamorous would be useful there, I tried but could not figure out how to use it for that purpose. One thing you can do is to use interwiki.py with hints. If you are interested I can let you know what changes were needed to the current code to run interwiki.py on Commons. --Jarekt (talk) 01:21, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
Yes, that would be most helpful.
For a general idea how glamorous can help here, try the link "Images from subcategories currently in use" on Category:Ship_categories_with_missing_year#Tools. It's a bit slow though. As I already used most results for that category, there wont be much left you could actually use there.
I developed a basic feature to retrieve information from articles on en. Thus identical titles at en_wiki, like the results at Commons:Bots/Work_requests/Archive_5#Categories_w.2Fo_interwikis probably wont render much. I tried to match, e.g. Category:Admiral Ushakov (ship, 1979) with "Admiral Ushakov (ship)", but this gives too many false positives. Maybe "Admiral Ushakov (1979)" gives better matches. One of the reasons we use the naming convention for ship categories is that titles elsewhere don't work that well on our scale. --  Docu  at 04:46, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Thanks for tips on Glamorous, I will try to use them. As for interwiki.py: in order to get it to work I had to : 1. Modify pywikipedia\families\commons_family.py:
Add at the end of __init__ function:

        # JT changes BEGIN
        # Allow crossnamespace interwiki linking from ns:14 (categories)
        # to wikipedia ns:0 (article) and ns:14 (categories)
        self.crossnamespace[14] = {
            '_default': {
                '_default': [0, 14], 
            },
        }
        # JT changes END

2. Go to pywikipedia\families\interwiki.py to function Subject.finish and replace "#self.replaceLinks(self.originPage, new, True, bot)" (line 1587) with

        # JT changes BEGIN
        # Special case of Commons which allow intewiki lints to Wikipedias, but wikipedias do not allow linking to Commons
        if self.originPage.site().sitename()=='commons:commons':
          new2 = dict(new)
          new2[self.originPage.site()] = self.originPage
          try:
            self.replaceLinks(self.originPage, new2, bot)
          except:
            pywikibot.output(u"======Can't save the page %s======" % self.originPage.aslink(True))            
        # JT changes END

Let me know if it works for you. --Jarekt (talk) 05:30, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Także muszę cie ostrzec ze wiele z twoich plików przypuszczalnie zostanie wyrzucone z Commons. Na przykład File:Beataflorida.jpg: ożywasz {{PD-old}} bez podania autora ani daty jego śmierci. Zaoszczędzisz dożo pracy sobie i innym jeśli będziesz przesyłać pliki tylko znanych autorów jeśli twierdzisz ze zmarli przed 1941 rokiem. Najlepiej jak dodasz "Creator template" do każdego pliku który ożywa {{PD-old}}. Fakt ze inne wikipedie nie wyrzuciły jeszcze tych plików, nie znaczy ze są bezpieczne na Commons.

Template:Babel/header/en[edit]

Gday. You deleted Template:Babel/header/en and there are still hundreds of pages looking to use that file. I am wondering whether we should have deprecated its use rather than deleted it, or should we have looked to some replacement process.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:40, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

I deleted the Template:Babel/header and Template:Babel/footer templates after modifying part of Template:Babel that call them. I do not think anybody else called them directly, (or at least should not have). I looked at some pages that supposelly transclude the template, like User:Vlaascho but for life of me I can not find anything that calls it. I think it is a case of database not updating their links yet. I will try to run a bot to replace {{tl|Babel) with preferred {{#babel:...}} where possible, that should fix it for most pages. --Jarekt (talk) 01:09, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Błędy w plikach[edit]

Witaj. Przeglądam ostatnio duże kategorie plików na potrzeby plWiktionary. Zauważyłem przy okazji błędy w kilkudziesięciu grafikach. Błąd polega na tym, że miniaturze zdjęcie wygląda na nieprawidłowo obrócone. Po powiększeniu okazuje się, że fotka jest obrócona, ale proporcje są nieprawidłowe. Zerknij tutaj: http://pokazywarka.pl/x0qsg5/

Co z tym robić? Gdzie to zgłaszać? Jest tego sporo. Na dodatek automat do obracania fotek działa nieprawidłowo – co innego widać na stronie obrazka, a co innego na podglądzie przy zgłaszaniu do obracania. Niestety mój angielski jest kiepski i nie za bardzo potrafię się dogadać z administratorem, który pisał do mnie w tej sprawie. Pozdrawiam / Andrzej 22 (talk) 17:19, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Jest to związane z bugzilla:6672 gdzie wprowadzono kod który obraca pliki na podstawie danych EXIF. Jednak to jest jakiś nowy problem i nie wiem co tu się dzieje, ale popytam się i zreperuje. User:Saibo głownie się pyta dlaczego prosisz o obrót w złą stronę, ale w wypadku File:Catedrala Ortodoxă Cluj 10.jpg nie jestem pewien jak to zreperować. Jak chcesz obrócić jakąś grafikę to ożywaj linka "Obróć grafikę", to ci pokaże jak grafika będzie wyglądała po obrocie. Jak znajdziesz więcej problematycznych zdjęć to mi powiedz i ja się nimi zajmę. --Jarekt (talk) 05:45, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Witaj. Błędów ciąg dalszy. Zobacz tutaj: [22]. Fotka powinna być obrócona o +90°. Tak też zaznaczono w formularzu, jednak na podglądzie pojawia się miniatura, jakby obraz miał być obrócony o 180°. To jest przykład tego, że program źle pokazuje to, jak bedzie wyglądała grafika po obrocie. Ten mechanizm szwankuje. Z tego co wiem, to wnioski w Bugzilli potrafią leżeć nierozpatrzone całymi latami. Może lepiej napisać do autora tego oprogramowania?
Przy okazji inne pytanie. Czy w Commons nie ma zwyczaju odpowiadania na stronie dyskusji dyskutanta? Pozdrawiam. / Andrzej 22 (talk) 23:28, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Correct names[edit]

Lamentation

The above file, and any others that have been uploaded should not be uploaded as the works of Giotto di Bondone. They were all attributed to him in the 19th century, for want of a better name to stick on them, and the attribution has stuck. It is certain that none (or at the best very few) of the works in the upper church are by him. Most current art historians believe that they were done by a team of artists from Rome. However most older books have never corrected this. And the web Gallery of art and other online sources list them as Giotto's work.

The best name to put on them is "Upper Church St Francis of Assisi" or something similar. There are some Giotto's in the Lower Church at Assisi.

Could you possibly change the filename and that of any others that are labelled Giotto from the upper church. Amandajm (talk) 05:44, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

They have some issues around the template, broken {{information}}, however, the issues go deeper, as the images are not their own and adequately sourced, there has been a deletion discussion for one of the images with a kept decision though not a thorough discussion, and no clear copyright, nor indication otherwise published, and no guidance at Commons:Copyright tags. Beyond burying your hands into your head, got an opinion?  — billinghurst sDrewth 15:04, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

JarektBot category organisation[edit]

Hi, I see that your JarektBot is doing a good job on interwikis. As there is no consensus on the order, I would prefer however that it does not put systematically the categories on top of the categories and the interwikis on the bottom. Like most bots do, the best is to keep the categories together, but not change the order. --Foroa (talk) 09:15, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

I am just running m:Pywikipediabot/interwiki.py after being annoyed about how often our interwiki links are out of date or point to non existing pages. The interwiki.py is a huge code which does not have that many customization parameters. As a result I ndo not have any choice about the position of categories and interwiki links. They are being placed i the same position as on all the other wikis. --Jarekt (talk) 13:02, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
Most annoying, Commons is not just another wiki. In that case, we might ask Special:Contributions/MerlIwBot to do it. It respects the order. --Foroa (talk) 15:31, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
I disagree to get such a standard imposed. --Foroa (talk) 06:40, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
I think there is a parameter that allows it to be changed easily. If you run Special:Permalink/39184619, it puts categories to the bottom. --  Docu  at 06:49, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
I documented somewhere between 10 and 20000 categories with text and IWs from sumitup. I gain significant time by having the categories at the bottom, and for maintenance of well documented categories, it is much faster if the categories are at the bottom. That the bot changes such layout is not a real drama, but I noticed that some people take a pleasure in applying rules and protesting. I saw hundreds of categories changed just to remove a white space or to change the order in the hundreds of disambiguation pages I made. So I don't need an excuse for nitpickers to start making futile edits on those categories; not a drama in se, but just significant more work in my watchlist to check those edits on correctness. --Foroa (talk) 07:06, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
The script I linked is usually only applied if another change is made, e.g. when moving categories (sample). This reduces the number of SchlurcherBot edits needed. --  Docu  at 07:12, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
I stopped the bot, and I will try to figure out how to make that change before running it again. --Jarekt (talk) 15:46, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
For a general setting, I think you need to add "interwiki_putfirst" in the commons family file. See the Wikipedia family file for comparison. --  Docu  at 04:28, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
self.interwiki_putfirst seem to control the order of interwiki links (alphabetical order on language code, language name or something else) not the order of interwikis before or after categories. Commons:Tools/pywiki file description cleanup seems to be no longer needed: it is part of the pywikipediabot code. cosmetic_changes.py for commons cosmetic changes seem to focus on changes fo files not categories, so it is not particularly relevant. I looked in pywikipedia\families\commons_family.py, a single file with all the settings specific to commons, and it seems that you can pick interwiki before categories or categories before interwikis, but there does not seem an option for neither, I guess because bot needs to know where to add new interwikis. I will look more through the pywikipediabot code. --Jarekt (talk) 04:13, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
Great. Maybe it can auto-adjust to the first place where it finds a category. Thank you. --Foroa (talk) 06:52, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
I looked through the code of the standard pywikipediabot infrastructure and asked around on related mail list, and it seems like there is no easy solution to this problem. The problem is with one of the most fundamental functions of the code: wikipedia.replaceLanguageLinks which is used by interwiki.py (which I am using) and couple dozen other utilities. Apparently when any bot using pywikipediabot infrastructure adds an interwiki or category than it performs the task by first removing all interwikis or categories and then inserting new block in the proper location. The net result is that the process the page code is always kept in the same order with categories and interwikis kept together and in proper location. Each project using the infrastructure can customize the settings to encoding if categories and interwikis are kept on top or the bottom of the page, if they are all in one line or one per line, and if categories are on top of interwikis or the other way around. Commons is currently customized to use the same order as Wikipedia: categories and interwikis are on the bottom, one per line with categories on top. That is the order currently enforced by all the bots using pywikipediabot infrastructure.

I can change the code to request interwikis to be placed above categories (Wikia's preferred style), but such change will affect only my bot's edits and if it is in conflict with all the other bots using pywikipediabot infrastructure - it will lead to a lot of changes. We can also request code change to pywikipediabot infrastructure which will eventually affect all the derived bots, but that would require consensus. I can also stop adding interwikis, (I have plenty of other interesting tasks on my to do list), however that would not solve much since most other bots, using pywikipediabot infrastructure will have the same effect of standardizing pages they are working on, even when they are working on different problems. And most bots out there are either AWB based and perform mostly simple find and replace tasks or use pywikipediabot infrastructure. Very few are like already mentioned user:MerlIwBot which use home-brewed code. --Jarekt (talk) 15:53, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Template:Uwlsubst[edit]

Hello Mardetanha!

Since the Template:Uwlsubst is widely used on Commons, it would be helpful to have the text in other languages, too. Can you please write the text in Polish as well? Thank you in advance! Greetings, High Contrast (talk) 19:38, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Although Polish is my native language and I frequently use it, I did not live in Poland for last 20 years and I am rather rusty in discussing subjects I was not familiar with 20 years ago. As a result I do not try to translate legalese or technical texts into Polish. --Jarekt (talk) 19:54, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

{{Documentation}}[edit]

Hello my friend,
I think you broke {{Documentation}}. See {{ITIS}}, {{FishBase species}}, {{Taxasource}} have no documentation displayed.
Sadly, I have no time to investigate.

Dandelion Route - Joshua Tree[edit]

Kitten-stare.jpg

Hi Jarekt!

I came across your photo taken at Joshua Tree National Park and I was wondering if you'd allow me to use it in a guidebook to the national parks I've been putting together? If that's alright, how would you like to be attributed?

Thank you and enjoy the Holiday Season,

Michael Oswald (michael.joseph.oswald@gmail.com)

P.S. I'll be happy to pass along electronic versions (EPUB and PDF) when it's completed.

museums[edit]

Hi, can you update this list so we can finish to check categories and names? Do not list thos whose original category has been already redirected. Thanks! Merry Christmas :) --Sailko (talk) 19:39, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Sailko, I got dissatisfied with that list and implemented something that works better. Category:Institution template stubs without home category holds institution stubs that have categoreies that were not matched with the categories yet. The way I usually work with them is to click in an institution that will give you a page with pretyped search box. I usually search categories, institutions and galleries for the matching name. If I do not find any hits than I shorten the name. If I find a matching category I add category redirect, and if not than I create the category and add it to the Commons category structure. --Jarekt (talk) 02:03, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
