as of 18 February 2010


Lupo hi.

for some inexplicable reason, in the hebrew translation, the "engine_names" happen to be in Greek, which is, as they say, Greek to me.

could you please change the translation as here?

if (window.HotCat) $.extend(window.HotCat.engine_names, {
    searchindex : 'חיפוש'
   ,pagelist    : 'רשימת דפים'
   ,combined    : 'חיפוש מורכב'
   ,subcat      : 'תת קטגוריות'
   ,parentcat   : 'קטגוריות אב'

(not that i understand what is the difference between "search" and "combined", or why is it good to have "pagelist" in this gadget)...

while you are at it, you might want to change

 HotCat.multi_tooltip = 'עריכת מספר קטגוריות';


HotCat.messages.multi_error =  'למרבה הצער ארעה תקלה, והשינויים שביצעת לא נשמרו. אתך הסליחה.';

thanks a bunch, peace - קיפודנחש (talk) 23:06, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

No idea why there was Greek text there. Might have been a copy-paste error. Nor do I know why nobody noticed that for so long. ✓ Done now. Thanks a lot for your help! Lupo 06:04, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Discussion at enwiki Village Pump[edit]

There's a discussion at en:Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)#Section links not working properly that would benefit from your contribution. It looks like there might be a conflict between HotCat at en:Wikipedia:WikEd which is causing some unusual behaviour when section links are clicked on. Thanks. Nthep (talk) 20:07, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the pointer; I've replied there. Lupo 22:02, 9 May 2014 (UTC)


I'm new and so I must apologise about the copyrighted images. I'm confused as the images I've used are from Flickr, and the individual has given consent for the image to be used by others as long as he's mentioned which I have done. So can you give me some help and info and why what I have done is a "copyright violation"? And the image: " File:Police Scotland Mounted Branch in Tayside.jpg," I would like deleted. I got the location mixed up (Dundee and not Tayside), and tried to reupload but wouldn't let me and I don't know how to delete the image myself. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by AProudScotsman (talk • contribs) 11:59, 12 May 2014‎ (UTC)

I've replied at your talk page. Lupo 12:12, 12 May 2014 (UTC)


Kudos to you for your work on spotting copyright violations. Best regards Hekerui (talk) 19:36, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. It's like trying to empty a bathtub using a thimble while the faucet is running. Luckily there are some others keeping an eye out, too. How'd you notice? Lupo 19:43, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
I went over files marked as copyright violations and you gave links that name the actual photographers and agencies, and are not some blog post, which made it easy. Often, one has to do a whole other search to clarify whether an image is indeed a copyvio or not. Best regards Hekerui (talk) 09:09, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I try to give good source links that do credit the photo to someone since I know myself how much work actual deletion can be if one takes the trouble to actually follow the given links and is trying to figure out whether the report is valid. Not always possible, though, so sometimes I have to settle for a blog post, too. Blog posts are good, too, if they pre-date the upload here; that at least shows that the image was available elsewhere before the upload. Basically, if something is available on the Internet anywhere shortly after the upload, my first assumption is copyvio. Sometimes, if user names indicate some affiliation with the source found, I go for "no permission" instead. Lupo 09:17, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
You're right of course, I do the same thing. But you gave really good links when you could, hence my thanks :) Hekerui (talk) 09:48, 16 May 2014 (UTC)


Hi, you left a message on my talk page re: copyright violation. I only cropped the original image after a request to do so on my talk page. I actually don't think the image is a decent enough quality even in it's original form ... Sagaciousphil (talk) 15:58, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I noticed so a little later. Original image is now also tagged. Lupo 15:59, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
I never looked when I cropped it but after receiving your notice I looked in more depth - it does seem the link you gave was uploaded by the same user? If possible I would ask if you would consider removing the template from my talk page as I had acted in good faith and literally just cropped an image that was already on Commons, uploaded by someone I have no knowledge of whatsoever, so I don't feel it's justified for me to be branded as guilty of copyright violation. Sagaciousphil (talk) 16:07, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
As you are an Admin, please rev/del the notice from my talk page as I do not wish it to appear in the history of my talk page. I was not guilty of a copyright violation. Thanks. Sagaciousphil (talk) 16:38, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
That would leave nonsense in the history. It's not a stigma. Just archive it, or simply delete the whole section, and be done with it. Lupo 16:49, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Lupo, well, I'm afraid I respectfully disagree - you have incorrectly accused me of copy violation and anyone checking my talk page/archive will think I do not understand copyright. Please rev/del it. Sagaciousphil (talk) 16:57, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Lupo, will you not at least have the curtesy of clearly indicating on my talk page that you have been mistaken in your inappropriate and inaccurate accusations? Sagaciousphil (talk) 18:57, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Please note further comment on my talk page. Thanks. Sagaciousphil (talk) 20:27, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
For me, this is closed. I won't make any further comment on this. Lupo 20:33, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Take it easy. Hekerui (talk) 11:44, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
The posting of that video link is not only offensive but childish; certainly not the behaviour anyone would expect from Administrators. Lupo simply had to remove the erroneous template with a sincere apology once their blatant mistake was pointed out to them. Sagaciousphil (talk) 12:56, 19 May 2014 (UTC)


Hi Lupo, I saw your warning on User talk:Aytugg. He repeated viol. Thank you.--Ayrıntılı Bilgi (talk) 19:44, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice. Since he drops by infrequently, I've given him a 2 week timeout. Lupo 20:31, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files on User:Martin H./World War I posters in the Library of Congress for jpg file matches to "Rehse-Archiv"[edit]

Ich rufe dich als Kenner des Urheberrechts an. Kannst du bitte hier einen Blick drauf werfen und eingreifen, falls meine Interpretation grundlegend falsch sein sollte? Anliegen ist die Löschung von Dateien deren Urheberrecht im Ursprungsland noch nicht abgelaufen ist und die - obgleich in einem Massenupload enthalten - auf Commons nicht hätten hochgeladen werden sollen. Ich weiß, auf Commons wird die Interpretation von Recht gerne als demokratischer Prozess misverstanden, weswegen diese Bitte als Falsch interpretiert werden könnte. --Martin H. (talk) 15:27, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi there! Please excuse my writing in English; I do not speak your language. The block expired on 17:52, 11 June 2014 (UTC). Since you could edit my talk page and leave me the above message, you're clearly not blocked anymore. If, as you write, there is no way to select a license for a mobile upload, then only upload photos that you have taken yourself. Do not upload screenshots or photographs of other photos, of posters, of DVD covers, of TV screens, or of similar things -- those are copyrighted. Also do not upload images taken from other websites. The only other help I can offer is the image at the right. Lupo 21:04, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
thank you very very much all i was trying to do is to upload image for mohammad metwalli alsharawi a famous egyptian but because there is no free image for him i will stop downloading photos from internet websites thanks another time--1339861mzb (talk) 14:59, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Missing messages at Translatewiki?[edit]

There are some system messages at Commons in English that I would like to translate into Croatian, but I can't find them at Translatewiki. For example, tabs "global usage", "find categories", "move", then "request rotation" and "ZoomViewer: flash/no flash". Where are really these messages, am I missing something?--MaCroatian squares Ljubicic.pngGa 11:59, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

These probably come from gadgets. You'd have to look in the respective gadgets how they can be localized. For instance, MediaWiki:Gadget-ZoomViewer.js doesn't look like it could be localized out of the box, the strings are hardcoded. You'll have to prod the people who wrote these gadgets. Lupo 14:12, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
OK, thanks.--MaCroatian squares Ljubicic.pngGa 18:05, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

~ Nahid Talk 18:01, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Uhm, I've never found out how to use translatewiki for Javascript. I'm eitehr not looking hard enough, or the documentation is well hidden / not existent. --Dschwen (talk) 18:54, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Did you? or another one . I dont know. It was sth like "Ultimate deletion". Who ever did, thank you.--Ayrıntılı Bilgi (talk) 19:05, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
No, that was somebody else. Indeed an ultimate deletion. Actually, I wonder how one does that. Maybe first hide all revisions, then delete the page? Or maybe through the API... Lupo 20:44, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of File:Maia v roce 2014 2014-07-18 16-08.jpg[edit]

Lupo, you recently deleted this file, as per my suggestion. The uploader, Eliška Fortinová, also has a pretty long history of violating copyright policy, and has already been blocked (briefly) once... This might be an opportunity for a more forceful reprimand, if you think such is appropriate. Just a thought. KDS4444 (talk) 14:47, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0 Generic[edit]

Hi. Are Creative Commons images with the Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0 Generic license allowed to be used on Wiki?

Tbone556 (talk) 16:21, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

@Tbone556:: No. Only CC-0, CC-BY and CC-BY-SA, all versions. NC or ND are not free enough for the Commons. BTW, please upload crops as separate files under a new name. We don't overwrite files with different ones, unless the modification is really minor. Your crops are pretty heavy. Maybe even good, but still drastic changes from the original. So just upload under a new name (and then change the image link in the article). Lupo 16:24, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

OK, thanks for the information. Cheers!

Deletion of Klaus-johannis-560x778.jpg[edit]

Hi. Please help me understand why this file was deleted and please tell me how to upload it again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ArchGabriel33 (talk • contribs) 07:30, 13 August 2014‎ (UTC)

@ArchGabriel33: Hi. The file was deleted because it appeared to be a copyright violation. It was already published at and that site does not specify any free license for that image but instead clearly says "© 2008-2012, Klaus Iohannis, All Rights Reserved".
If you are the owner of the copyrights on that image, follow the process explained at COM:OTRS and send a formal release for the picture. The release should come from a verifiable e-mail address. Alternatively, contact Mr. Iohannis and make him include a statement on his page that this image was licensed freely, for instance as {{cc-by-sa-4.0}}. Lupo 07:53, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
@Lupo: That image is all over the internet. It also appears on Facebook and o large number of public newspapers. Please take a look. And the copyright "© 2008-2012, Klaus Iohannis, All Rights Reserved" is for the webpage, not for the image, that's why the image is public.
It doesn't matter that it was copied to numerous other websites. Unless there is a clear and reliable indication (by the copyright owner) of a free license, it's not freely licensed and must not be uploaded here. Lupo 08:19, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
@Lupo: I understand. So is there no chance to post that photo on Wikipedia? Because I don't have any contact with Klaus Iohannis nor with his photographer (who's name is not even known). I really want to replace the terrible photo from that article. Please help me with this. My intentions are far from creating any legal issues, but rather of helping Wikipedia. --ArchGabriel33 (talk) 19:45, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
No, in that case there's no chance to upload this photo here at the Commons. Perhaps some Wikipedian can take a better photo of him at one of his public appearances. Lupo 20:02, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Rillke(q?) 19:02, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! I try... but it's not over yet. There's still some patches that should be deployed and have some effect, and if not, I'll have to take them up on their promise to take it down until they have come up with a better idea to structure that process/workflow to get a better useful-uploads ratio.
I just hope they don't repeat the same mistakes with their plans for desktop uploading. That looks on first glance as if they wanted to make the upload wizard more mobile-like... which would be bad. (Also, I only see user stories/use cases about what they want to support. I see nothing about use cases they want to prevent. Neglecting those is the biggest problem with Mobile/Web uploads.)

Hallo Lupo, könntest du bei der Datei bitte die erste Version löschen. Das Original von der ÖNB braucht es hier nicht und die Reproduktion ohne die Scan-Farbskala ist dann auch definitiv PD-old-100. Danke --тнояsтеn 21:06, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Flinfo kann keine Bilder mehr von der Mushroom Observer-Seite herunterladen[edit]

Hi Lupo, seit einiger Zeit kann ich mit Flinfo keine Bilder mehr von der Mushroom Observer-Seite herunterzuladen. Als Fehlermeldung erhalte ich nur: "Bild-ID kann nicht berechnet werden aus der Eingabe xyz". Das Herunterladen von Bildern von Flickr funktioniert nach wie vor. Daher gehe ich davon aus, dass es irgendwelche Umstellungen auf der Mushroom Observer-Seite gegeben hat. Ich hoffe sehr, dass du mir helfen kannst oder du mir zumindest sagen kannst, an wen ich mich mit meinem Problem wenden kann. Es wäre wirklich mehr als schade, wenn dieses tolle Tool nicht mehr betreut würde. (meine Anfrage auf der Kontaktseite des Tools blieb bisher unbeantwortet, da Benutzer Flominator sich wohl eine Auszeit genommen hat.(was ihm natürlich gegönnt sei!)) Herzliche Grüße -- 07:52, 9 October 2014 (UTC) --Thkgk (talk) 16:14, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Das hatte ich ferienhalber auch nicht gesehen. Ja, die haben wieder einmal ihr HTML geändert. Flinfo ist nun angepasst; sollte wieder gehen. (Übrigens, das "Kontakt"-Link in Flinfo selbst geht hierher nach Commons. Da sind die Chancen, dass ich das sehe, ein wenig besser.) Lupo 23:00, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

I don't know if there is a mass rename tool somewhere. Lupo 11:32, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Lupo,
User Rillke hat auf meine Frage, warum beim Hochladen mehrerer Bilder ab dem zweiten nur das einfache Formular angeboten wird, hier geantwortet "Der Code für das "bessere Hochladeformular" ist alt und klapprig. Damals von Lupo geschrieben, hat es über Jahre keine Updates mehr erfahren. Wir haben ja stattdessen den Wizard und mit dem werden ja schließlich 70 bis 90% aller Dateien hochgeladen."
Ich finde dennoch dein Formular besser. Könntest du es bitte wieder zum stabilen Funktionieren bringen?
Mit freundlichem Gruß --Geisler Martin (talk) 17:14, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Rillke hat schon recht. Dass da überhaupt noch etwas funktioniert grenzt an ein kleines Wunder.
Vielleicht habe ich tatsächlich über den Jahreswechsel ein wenig Zeit, 'mal danach zu schauen. Es wäre mir aber schon geholfen, wenn ich nicht raten müsste, was genau Du denn beobachtest. Kannst Du mir das bitte genau beschreiben, oder ein Video davon irgendwo hochladen? Z.B.: welche Version welchen Browsers verwendest Du, auf welchem Betriebssystem? Was genau machst Du, um nach erfolgtem erstem Upload erneut zum Formular zu kommen: gehst Du via die Browser-Historie zurück? Oder klickst Du erneut ein "Hochladen"-Link an? Öffnest Du das "zweite" Formular in einem neuen Tab? Siehst Du auf dem einfachen Formular wenigstens auch den "Vorschau"-Knopf? Wie genau lautet die URL in der Addresszeile, wenn Du beim zweiten Mal nur das einfache Formular siehst? Meldet Dein Browser irgendwelche Fehlermeldungen in seiner Fehlerkonsole, die so aussehen, als hätten sie etwas mit Javascript zu tun? Wenn ja, was ist der Inhalt dieser Fehlermeldungen?
Wenn ich zumindest weiss, was genau Du machst, kann ich versuchen, das hier bei mir zu reproduzieren. Wenn's dann bei mir auch auftritt, kann ich der Sache nachgehen. Andernfalls kann ich da leider nicht viel machen.
Lupo 23:04, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Ich verwende Firefox 34.0.5 unter Windows 7 professional und rufe für jedes Bild das Formular mit "Datei hochladen" in einem neuen Fenster auf. Der Fehler mit dem einfachen Formular tritt nach Umfrage bei einem Wikipedia-Stammtisch auch bei anderen Anwendern auf. Er kommt meist beim zweiten Bild, manchmal auch später. Wenn er auftritt wird dennoch angezeigt: Das einfache Formular ist dann ohne Vorschauknopf. Manchmal hat es schon geklappt, dass ich ohne etwas im einfachen Formular auszufüllen auf Hochladen gedrückt habe, und das erweiterte Formular erschien, jetzt unter der Anzeige Irgendwelche Fehlermeldungen treten nicht auf. --Geisler Martin (talk) 13:22, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Und von wo kommst Du überhaupt auf das Formular? Via Commons:Hochladen, "Das Standardformular hat keine Vorauswahl."? Oder sonstwie? Lupo 17:20, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Über "Commons:Hochladen" (B): "Es ist ausschließlich meine eigene Arbeit." oder "Es stammt von woanders." --Geisler Martin (talk) 21:51, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
✓ Done sollte behoben sein. Wenn Du einmal auf Special:Upload gehst und dann dort Deinen Browser-Cache neu lädst, sollte das nicht mehr vorkommen. Lupo 13:42, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
Alles bestens. Danke. --Geisler Martin (talk) 15:31, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Guten Tag Lupo, in Bezug auf die von mir gemalten Personen möchte ich Folgendes ergänzen: Die Fotos von folgenden Personen wurden mir persönlich zur Verfügung gestellt, um sie für die wikipedia zu malen, die schriftlichen Einwilligungen vor: -Sir Bernard Katz (von Nick Sinclair) -Prof. W. Hartmann (persönlich) -Addie Jacobi (von Michael Teuchert) -Gottfried Müller (von Michael Teuchert) Siehe auch unter Teucofilm: Youtube Gottfried Müller- 90. Geburtstag

Als Malerin und Fotografin habe ich ein sehr gutes bildliches Gedächtnis und nehme Fotos (auch die von mir selbst gemachten) nur als Gedankenstütze.

Vielen Dank für die Bearbeitung

LG aus Chemnitz --Dr.BenitaMartin 07:16, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

"für Wikipedia" für sich alleine ist keine ausreichende Genehmigung; und wenn tatsächlich schriftliche Genehmigungen der Rechteinhaber an den Fotos vorliegen, können diese ja noch nachgereicht werden, falls nicht schon geschehen. Lupo 10:48, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Ok. Habe die Fotofreigaben der entsprechenden Fotografen Reinhard Kraasch von der Wikipedia-Permissionsabteilung geschickt.

"Vom TV" bleibt dann nur noch Ireen Sheer und diese Künstlerin habe ich im EMC Stollberg zur MDR live Silvesterparty selbst fotografiert. Ich habe dort mehrfach meine ADA Bilder ausgestellt. Siehe Picasa Benita Martin (link geht hier leider nicht- ist aber auf meiner hp) Und im Übrigen, wie ich schon an anderer Stelle in der Wikipedia formuliert habe, ich kann dieser Enzyklopädie nur anbieten. Was fairerweise übernommen und eingestellt wird, entscheiden die Wikipedianer selbst und nicht ich. Meine Bilder zeichnen sich in jedem Fall als selbst angefertigte, realitätsgetreue eigenständige Werke aus. Danke für die Bearbeitung Benita Martin (leider vom handy und ohne Signum Sorry)

Keine Ahnung wer Reinhard Kraasch ist; die korrekte E-mail-Adresse ist Dass Ireen Sheer von einem selbstgemachten Foto abgezeichnet wurde, lässet sich ja einfach genug glaubhaft machen indem dieses Originalfoto inkl. Metadaten und evtl. vorhandener am gleichen Anlass kurz vorher oder nachher gemachter Fotos ebenfalls an diese E-Mail-Adresse gesedet werden. Lupo 11:32, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Guten Morgen Lupo, als erstes möchte ich deutlich bemerken: Es ist für mich als Malerin überhaupt nicht unerheblich, ob ich die Person, die ich male, persönlich kenne, oder nicht. Besonders realitätsgetreuen Ausdruck bekomme ich in die Gesichter, in ihre Augen, erfasse ihre Aura, wenn ich die Menschen dazu selbst gesehen habe, vielleicht Kontakt hatte. Da fühle ich mich als Künstlerin von Dir frontal angegriffen. Nun ist es aber so, dass ich oft Aufträge bekomme, die Person "als Kind" zu zeichnen, oder Verstorbene, die dann mir nicht in diesem Alter bekannt sein KÖNNEN. Dann muss ich von Fotos "abmalen". Meine Vorgehensweise als Malerin ist die Folgende: 1. Ein Funke springt über. Bei Veranstaltungen, oder aus Sympathie überhaupt, oder eben als Auftrag. 2.Dann die Entscheidung, die Person zu malen. 3. Ich zeichne high life. Wenn Zeit ist und ich die Materialien dabei habe. 4. Oder ich mache mir ein handy Foto als Erinnerungsstütze. Wer sitzt in der heutigen Zeit noch stundenlang Modell? 5. Im Atelier dann nehme ich mein handy, vergrößere das Display und überlege den "touch": Ist die Person zart? Oder derb, grobschlächtig? Wild? Oder schlau? Danach wähle ich die Acrylfarben aus. Oder Kohle. Oder nur Bleistift- bei Babies. 5. Dann male ich. Die Fotos werden danach für mich uninteressant. Lupo. Ich frage Dich. Wer hat noch seine handyfotos von seinem handy von vor 3-10 Jahren??? Es tut mir leid, damit kann ich der Wikipedia nicht dienen.

Lupo, ich kann Die auch ein Foto 1:1 abzeichnen: Schwarz weiß, oder bunte, wie eine Kopie. Meine Bilder aber zeichnen sich durch abstrakte Striche aus, verwischt, oder mit Wasser weich auslaufend. Lege ein Bild von mir neben ein Foto. Es ist gänzlich anders. Und doch fängt es den Ausdruck ein. Fokussiert auf die Aura des Porträtierten.

Die Wikipedia als Enzyklopädie sieht das vielleicht anders, das verstehe ich. Und die Wikipedianer müssen nun entscheiden. Wollen sie zur Verbesserung ihrer Artikel gemalte Bilder? Ich wurde sogar von Wikipedianern gelobt für die Zeichnungen "im Sinne der Verbesserung der Enzyklopädie". Wenn ja. Von mir? Oder nicht. Stimmt doch einfach ab ... LG aus Chemnitz -- 06:48, 11 January 2015 (UTC) Ach ja ich muss noch meinen Beitrag von eben signieren Benita Martin -- 06:54, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello Lupo,

Regarding to the file deleted above (now her). Doesn't it qualify under {{PD-Gutenberg}}? -- Geagea (talk) 02:07, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

{{PD-Gutenberg}} alone is not enough to keep this here. This book is only PD in the U.S. In the source country (the UK) and in fact in the whole European Union and in other countries with a copyright term of 70 years p.m.a. (after the author's death), this is still copyrighted. The author of the map died in 1959, so this will enter the public domain in these countries on January 1, 2030. Lupo 05:54, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
So consider as USA wiki? I mean, there are English speakers also in Australia, South Africa etc. But if we talking about servers locations (USA) or wikimedia foundation location (USA), then it is the same for Commons. -- Geagea (talk) 00:16, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, en-WP cares only about U.S. law. Here at the Commons we require that media be okay under U.S. law and under the law of the source country. Lupo 07:52, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Lupo. -- Geagea (talk) 04:02, 24 January 2015 (UTC)


Hi Lupo, do we still need this creator page? No links to it and his works are far from being in the public domain. Came across is while fixing templates with problems. Multichill (talk) 06:55, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I think that's still needed. First, his works will become PD at some point in time. Second, it's a record of my tracking down some rather obscure photographers. I was looking for somebody else and found info about this and a few other photographers, so I created these pages. Makes it much easier to re-discover the info if it's ever needed again. I see no reason to remove such entries; if we do, then somebody else will have to redo the research in the future, and it won't get easier some decades from now. However, if these creator entries do have categories, these should probably be tagged with {{No uploads}} or, if we go by the statement on that template page, the categories should be deleted.

ImageAnnotation - Bildnotizen[edit]

Hi Lupo,
Could you probably help me concerning my problem with ImageAnnotations, like I described here? I was convinced I tried everything, but... If it works I would like to do it for all communities of the Arrondissement Louhans. Thank you --H.p.frei (talk) 23:01, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Siehe meine Antwort dort. Lupo 10:46, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Flinfo: Kein Import mehr von möglich[edit]

Hallo Lupo, auf wurden neben der Benutzeroberfläche auch Änderungen "unter der Haube" vorgenommen, sodass jetzt kein Import mehr mit Flinfo möglich ist. Zuvor trat bereits der Fehler auf, dass Flinfo bestehende Kategorien auf Commons nicht mehr erkannte. Könntest Du das Tool bitte anpassen? Danke im Voraus. --Ak ccm (talk) 10:09, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Das mit den Kategorien ist schon behoben. Flinfo an die erneuten Änderungen auf anzupassen kann eine Weile dauern; die Änderungen sind diesmal ziemlich substantiell. Lupo 15:07, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
✓ Done Sollte wieder gehen. Wenn Du noch irgendwelche Probleme bemerkst, einfach melden. Lupo 20:43, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Muchas gracias! --Ak ccm (talk) 07:24, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Hilfe (Richiesta di aiuto per traduzione)[edit]

Salve Lupo, ho visto in questa categoria che parli tedesco, mi rivolgo a te per una richiesta di aiuto per traduzione in tedesco, potresti per favore aggiustare questa pagina?

De-adminship warning[edit]

This talk page in other languages:

Deutsch | English | español | français | italiano | 日本語 | 한국어 | മലയാളം | português | português do Brasil | +/−

Dear Lupo, I am writing to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section/Feb-Mar 2016 within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

You can read the de-admin policy at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship.

Thank you, odder (talk) 22:16, 13 February 2016 (UTC)


Hi Lupo, you have probably noticed it already, but just to make sure: a Wikimedia steward removed your admin privileges here on Commons earlier today, and as you are an experienced editor, I added you to the autopatrolled user group instead. Thank you for the many years of service as an administrator, and I hope you will stay active on Commons as a regular contributor. Of course, please do feel free to re-apply for adminship if you have more time :-) Thanks again, and all the best, odder (talk) 19:26, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Schade. Danke für deine Arbeit auf Commons. --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:24, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
Auch von mir herzlichen Dank! --Túrelio (talk) 15:52, 14 March 2016 (UTC)
Kann ich dich zu HotCat und ImageAnnotator Fragen weiterhin konsultieren? Du hast diese Gadgets und deren Abhängigkeiten super dokumentiert (das habe ich nie geschafft), aber ich denke es ist immer besser, der Ersteller schaut über die Änderungen. Vielen Dank, auch für deine kompetenten Antworten im Bereich Urheberrecht. -- Rillke(q?) 16:13, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Flinfo: Umstellung im Dateinamen beim Import von Mushroom Observer möglich?[edit]

Hallo Lupo, wäre es möglich, dass bei künftigen Importen von das Datum vom Anfang des Dateinamens ans Ende desselbigen positioniert wird? Dadurch werden die Pilzfotos in Kategorien automatisch nach dem wissenschaftlichen Namen sortiert. Würde mich freuen, wenn Du diese Anpassung vornehmen könntest. Ich ärgere mich, dass ich den Vorteil nicht schon früher erkannt habe. --Ak ccm (talk) 15:49, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
