Description from file name

Hi Magnus! I am wondering if you know about any tool (maybe made by you) which can extract the "description" from the file name. Similar to how "What is that" or "Add information" work. The reason I am asking is that I added a lot of files via commonist but I find it too painful to enter each files description in that tool. What I did instead, was giving a very descriptive name to each file, added many tags and a caption in EXIF using Picasa, before uploading. For example, please check the file names in Category:Orăştie Ethnography Museum which I just uploaded.

Another suggestion is extracting categories from Tag names encoded inside the EXIF (also description from the caption in EXIF). I tried to add a lot of tags and a good caption to all my albums that I uploaded in commons. Flickr for example can read those tags which then makes the pictures very searchable.

Please check the tags/keywords in the extended EXIF info for this file for example: File:Orastie Ethnography Museum 2011 - Colander from Ardeu Dacian Fotress.JPG

BTW, I love your wikipedia and commons tools. They save sooo much time! Best regards --Codrin.B (talk) 19:00, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Salut, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Panhard_PL17_Tigre_(1).jpg (und folgende) ist falsch betitelt. Das Auto basiert auf einer Panhard Dyna Z, erstes Modell, die PL 17 kam 5 Jahre später. Dieses zeigt den ersten PL 17 http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Panhard_PL_17_L1.jpg

Dann ändere es do entsprechend - es ist ein Wiki! --Magnus Manske (talk) 14:01, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Frage zu MediaWiki

Hallo Magnus Manske, auf meinem Rechner habe ich unter Ubuntu 11.10 die MediaWiki vers. 1.15 installiert. Meine Frage: Gibt es die Möglichkeit, die 2 MB Beschränkung der Bilder beim Hochladen auf einen höheren Wert zu setzen? Im Voraus vielen Dank für die Beantwortung. Grüße: Orchi (talk) 16:33, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Das ist eine Beschruankung von PHP, nicht MediaWiki. Google ist Dein Freund :-) --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:45, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
...vielen Dank für die Hilfestellung, schnelle Antwort und den hilfreichen Link. Ich hoffe trotz der Beschränkung, mir eine Bestimmungsdatenbank für Orchideen mit Mediawiki aufbauen zu können. Grüße. Orchi (talk) 16:40, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
P.S. ...mit dem hilfreichen Link ist mein System nun auf 100 MB "gesupert". Danke! Orchi (talk) 18:25, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

COM:VP#Still having toolserver problems?

Hi Magnus. Are you aware of the fact that CommonsHelper has not been working for several days now? --Leyo 13:13, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

GLAMorous

Sorry, but I just can't see how to submit an issue in JIRA. Do I need to create an account? Anyway, the issue is really simple. At http://toolserver.org/~magnus/glamorous.php it says "For more information, see GLAMorous on meta.", but the link to meta goes to a page which doesn't exist. cheers, Rd232 (talk) 13:47, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

The link is auto-created from the tool title. Feel free to write something, it's a wiki! :-) --Magnus Manske (talk) 21:15, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Oh I see! Well maybe I'll make a placeholder page at least. It's a bit misleading otherwise! Rd232 (talk) 21:52, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Well I did this. Hope you don't mind; I think it's better than an error page. Rd232 (talk) 23:02, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

And here. BTW: Are you aware of derivativeFX? It is a great tool to upload images, which are derivatives of Commons images. -- RE rillke questions? 00:05, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I didn't know derivativeFX, but in this case it seems a little ... overkill? It's a screenshot of some thumbnails of free images, most of which even I couldn't reconstruct in that fashion, or find the originals. I believe that's one of these "it's in the background"-issues, just as you don't need permission from people who are on your photo but in the background, not the object of the picture. --Magnus Manske (talk) 00:10, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
AFAIK, de minimis is not applicable to thumbnails, if that is what you mean. Copyright law is completely independent from personally rights. So why is google allowed to create thumbs? A court found that google's use of the images is permitted under fair-use claims, that are not allowed on Commons. And contrary to google search engine, that's crewlers can be stopped usig a simple robots.txt, the copyright-holders of the images in some of your examples could not prevent generating a thumb without any credit. So you can't rely on german law as well. These are just my thoughts (and I am not an expert) and I refrain from requesting more sources now, but you should be aware of the general problem which can (mayby) cause that you are sued by some of the copyright-owners. And last but not least: Freely licensed under CC-By-SA means that it is attribution required. Thank you. -- RE rillke questions? 08:43, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

This image has plenty of unsourced, copyrighted imagery in it. So does this one. Yet they were not deleted. --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:36, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
Hm... coming here via Rillke's RFA, your image issue seems resolved, but I can't see why those other images aren't breaches of copyright. I don't see that this has been tested in a deletion discussion for either one - perhaps it should be. (Or perhaps there's some kind of tag that can be added to explain why those images are OK?) Rd232 (talk) 13:31, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Bug with Commons Helper?

Hi!

I told the Commons Helper to move this revision from English Wikipedia to Wikimedia Commons. The outcome was this revision. The stamp is in the public domain since it is a 1957 US stamp (everything before 1978 is free), as proven here. The problem is that the image, despite being in the public domain, had a fair use rationale, which I didn't notice until after the image had been imported:

{{Non-free use rationale
|Article = Whooping crane
|Description = 1957 U.S. postage stamp with whooping cranes
|Source = WildlifeStamp.com
|Portion = The full stamp
|Low_resolution = Low-res photo
|Purpose = To use in the article
|Replaceability = No, it is the only U.S. stamp with with the whooping crane
|other_information =
}}

Since it's in the public domain, it's not supposed to have a fair use rationale in the first place. However, shouldn't the Commons Helper protest or at least display some warning if a fair use rationale is used on an image it is trying to copy? I guess that en:Template:Non-free use rationale should be added to some list of non-free licences. --Stefan4 (talk) 20:23, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, should be fixed now. --Magnus Manske (talk) 21:40, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Todo

Hi Magnus,

recently someone encountered problems in MediaWiki:Gadget-Gallerypreview.js. More details are here. Feel free to bookmark or watch this page.

And I had a glad look at Wikipic-slideshow. Nice. One problem (not very likely) that could arise is if you request the original from the server, it could display in the wrong orientation due to Exif-Autorotation, a new feature in MediaWiki 1.18. Since most photos are bigger than the browser-window, this is actually not a "real" problem. Regards -- RE rillke questions? 13:50, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Gadget-Cat-a-lot.js

Please, could you check this problem? --ŠJů (talk) 01:34, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Should be fixed now. --Magnus Manske (talk) 11:02, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Vorschlag: RepeatTranswiki

Moin, wäre eine Vorlage {{RepeatTranswiki|en:example.jpg}} denkbar bei der ein Überschreiben der Dateibeschreibung unter Beibehalt der Kategorien automatisch erfolgt? Die händische Benutzung des Tools frisst sehr viel Zeit, auf der anderen Seite ist es aber sehr schmerzhaft transferierte Dateien wie File:Milladoiro en Narón.JPG einfach liegen zu lassen (da falsche Lizenzierung, schlechte Verlinkung, keine Versionsgeschichte). Wenn ich nun einfach {{RepeatTranswiki|gl:Milladoiro en Narón.JPG}} draufklatschen könnte, könnte ich mit wenig Aufwand beitragen, derartige Uploads wieder in die richtige Bahn zu lenken. Was hältst du von der Idee? Könntest du sowas basteln? --Martin H. (talk) 18:50, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Flickr Mass

Hi Magnus. Thanks for your tools and your work. I'm using this tool now and I find it really helpful now that I have figured out what to do. I am not sure if you've been notified that the uploader does its job but you have actually no way to know it and to understand when it's done, unless you don't check his contributions or the category you're uploading to, because the page keeps loading and loading and it won't show any result. This might be not true when a small amount of images is uploaded (ten or so). --Elitre (talk) 11:40, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

I should add that the above is referred to my current task; the tool takes 4-5 minutes before actually uploading (the stream has more than 8k pics). Also it could be great if there was a way of stopping it, because if you mess with it you're going to deal with maaany dupes. --Elitre (talk) 11:58, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
Could this tool prevent uploading files that are already here (dupes)? -- RE rillke questions? 14:05, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
The tool tries to prevent uploads of dupes by looking for Commons files that have an external link to Flickr, as is generated by all Flickr import tools. --Magnus Manske (talk) 17:05, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
I assume a hash-search and user feedback what files were not imported is impossible? I had the feeling I was processing dupes uploaded by this tool. File:Altavilla Irpina (AV), 2011, Le miniere di Zolfo. (2).jpg was uploaded on 11:54, 21. Nov. 2011 before the link on File:Altavilla_Irpina_(AV),_2011,_Le_miniere_di_Zolfo._(11).jpg was removed on 13:15, 21. Nov. 2011 (diff) -- RE rillke questions? 17:39, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

Mein Foto einer Vanilleblüte

Ich habe soeben mein Bild Vanilleblüte1.jpg v.30.04.11 entdeckt mit dem Namen Magnus Manske. Es wurde von mir am 17.05. hochgeladen. Ich bekam den Hinweis, eine Lizenz zuzuordnen, habe es aber nicht geschafft u. dachte, die Datei sei nach 14 Tagen gelöscht. Jetzt wollte ich einen neuen Anlauf starten u. habe wie gesagt das Bild entdeckt. Was muß ich tun? Erbitte Antwort per Mail. bbkuhse(at)t-online.de

Du musst nichts tun. Nachdem du die Lizenz nachgetragen hattest, wurde das Bild nach Commons transferiert. --Leyo 23:16, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

File:An Italian Renaissance villa.jpg

Hallo Magnus, dieses Bild ließ jemand durch den User:File Upload Bot (Magnus Manske) hochladen (Zeitpunkt: 19:19, 30 December 2011). Interessanterweiserweise hinterließ der Bot keinerlei Angaben, wer ihn beauftragt hat oder von wo er das Bild geholt hat. Stattdessen fand sich nur der Text

{{ Blacklisted user; images from that user's pages must not be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons.

auf der Dateibeschreibungsseite. Ich werde die Datei jetzt gleich löschen mangels Lizenz etc., wollte Dich aber nur wissen lassen, das da mal irgendetwas schiefgegangen ist. Viele Grüße und alles Gute zum neuen Jahr, AFBorchert (talk) 07:04, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Nur aus Neugier: Welche Liste nutzt Du als Blacklist. Alles Gutes im Jahr auch von mir. -- RE rillke questions? 09:52, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
Seltsam. Der "Blacklisted user"-Text is in keinem meiner Skripte zu finden, und eine blacklist hab' ich auch nicht... --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:46, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
noch ein solches aber diesmal mit {{rotate}}. -- RE rillke questions? 13:51, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Gibt es denn keine off-wiki-Logs zu Deinem Bot, der Auftraggeber und Quelle notiert? --AFBorchert (talk) 21:11, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Die Blacklist ist, nach meiner Erfahrung, schon User:FlickreviewR/bad-authors. Das zuletzt verlinkte Lexus Bild stammt von hier, der Benutzer 37102254@N00 ist gelistet, bei diesem Bild vielleicht zu unrecht, bei anderen Bildern [1] sicherlich zurecht. --Martin H. (talk) 23:02, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Der oben zitierte Text "Blacklisted user; images from that user's pages must not be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons." stammt von Flinfo, welches von Magnus' Bot benutzt wird, um die Dateibeschreibung zu erhalten. Allerdings macht Magnus' Bot zuerst noch selbst eine Lizenzüberprüfung (ohne Blacklist). Wenn dieser Test erfolgreich ist, geht der Bot davon aus, dass Flinfo tatsächlich eine Beschreibung liefert. Tut Flinfo aber nicht, wenn der Flickr-User auf der Blacklist steht. (Und ja, Flinfo verwendet User:FlickreviewR/bad-authors als Blacklist.) Für das Lexus-Bild liefert Flinfo z.B. diesen Raw-Output, oder diesen Php-Output. Mit "&format=php" könnte Magnus' Bot das direkt abfragen und es sich sparen, selbst zuerst noch eine Lizenzüberprüfung zu machen. Das Feld wiki.status gibt an, ob das Bild OK ist:
0 - Everything OK. License good, user good, file found.
1 - The server returned a failure.
2 - Internal error. Call to the server was not made.
3 - Bad license: the license at the server is incompatible with the Commons.
4 - Blacklisted user: ditto
5 - Invalid ID: the ID specified was not digits only, and it wasn't a URL containing
    a valid image specification either.
6 - Missing ID: no ID was specified in the request.

Another such file was File:Wayne Gretzky on the bench of Phoenix Coyotes.jpg. Flickr account 35124296@N00 (xgeorg00, canyonero) is blacklisted for flickrwashing. Lupo 16:48, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Please, your bot should not put some categories

I discovered this import done with your 'File Upload Bot (Magnus Manske)'.
Could your bot avoid to add Category:Genera of Araceae (no picture is a genus of Araceae! Only genus categories and genus articles are intended there).
More generaly to add any Category:Families of XXXXXX, Category:Tribes of XXXXX, Category:Genera of XXXXX, Category:Species of XXXXX.
To help you avoid these categories, I created Category:Biology categories that should contain no files.

Bot inexplicably placing licenses at the bottom of transferred images

This has been happening with thousands of images, and I didn't even bother saying something, assuming it would get fixed. It hasn't. See File:19th century chest.JPG. At the bottom of the text, it inexplicably places a license. It seems to do this on nearly every file uploaded. Please fix this ASAP, because it is posting incorrect information. Magog the Ogre (talk) 06:11, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Or take File:Prem Chand Pandey.jpg for example. The bot is just adding licenses to images willy-nilly. Magog the Ogre (talk) 06:32, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

File:Ybells.jpg: how is it even choosing these licenses? It's almost like it's purposefully choosing the wrong one to put at the bottom. Face-blush.svg Magog the Ogre (talk) 06:58, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Magnus, this is a real problem so I would appreciate if you could address it with me; thanks. Magog the Ogre (talk) 20:54, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi, the images were not transfered by my bot. It appears the text was generated by CommonsHelper2, originally written by myself and now mainly operated by User:Jan Luca, and then used in a manual upload by the respective user (in the file upload history). If these had been uploaded by the bot, that would be the "uploading user". I have not looked at the CommonsHelper2 code in many months, but it appears to be blocked (why, I don't know either), which would explain the manual uploads. If the bot added the categories, or if they were added manually by the uploaders, I cannot tell; anyway, it is their responsibility alone. Maybe Jan can shed light on the technical issue, though, if there is one. --Magnus Manske (talk) 23:18, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

The thing is: I've seen this occur to thousands of images. This is not an isolated event where one user was appending it to the bottom; it's happened a ton. It's even so bad that I put code in my cleanup script to fix it. But (for whatever reason) it never occurred to me what a deep problem this is, given it's assigning licenses to files which users did not agree to. Magog the Ogre (talk) 01:42, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

The form itself works indeed, but when trying to start a request on Commons, it outputs the above error. According to {{toolserver}}, s4 is down. If Commons is replicated on another server, maybe it could be switched to that. In the meantime, I suppose I have to find another way to update New ships. --  Docu  at 08:42, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Lost TUSC password

Hi Magnus - I seem to have lost my TUSC password. Can you please reset it? Schwede66 19:54, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

I think it's sorted now. Schwede66 20:00, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Ok, now that I have overcome that hurdle, I have trouble getting the Flickr2Commons tool to behave. I'm trying to upload this file and it tells me that it's got an unsuitable licence. Here's the string that it gives: "Checking license ... Unsuitable license : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <rsp stat="fail"> <err code="1" msg="Photo "o" not found (invalid ID)" /> </rsp>" Attribution share alike is, of course, one of the licences that is allowed. Any tips as to what is going wrong? Schwede66 20:07, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
(talk page stalker)Try linking it with the front page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/houseofhall/6054130494/. Magog the Ogre (talk) 20:33, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Ok, that got it to work. But will that result in uploading the highest resolution photo that is held on Flickr? I see that in this case, it does, as the front page photo has the same resolution as the 'original'. But what if that's not the case? Schwede66 22:06, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
It uploads the highest resolution provided. Magog the Ogre (talk) 23:20, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
I see. Thanks for pointing this out. Maybe you could put some explanatory text in brackets after the file input field in the upload tool for us lost souls: "Insert the base URL of the Flickr image; the tool will upload the highest resolution held of that file."

usecommons, a Python library based on your code

Hi Magnus! I'm working on a simple Python library to aid with attribution when reusing content from Commons. You can find it here. I used your MediaWiki:Gadget-Stockphoto.js as a reference in order to handle all the special cases in the same way; some of the code is basically a line-by-line port. I'm now left with another licensing and attribution question: how I should license and attribute this code? Gadget-Stockphoto.js does not explicitly mention licensing. Is it GPL:ed like MediaWiki? I would prefer to license my library under a more permissive license, I'm thinking MIT/X11, so that it's maximally usable by as many as possible – if I get your (and Krinkles? I'm not sure who's the copyright holder here) permission.

Another question: are you still developing Commons:Commons_API? There are some problems with the wellformedness of the generated XML.

Thank you! I'll leave a note on User talk:Krinkle as well. /Skagedal (talk) 21:36, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Skagedal,
Attribution goes to the authors, those are mentioned in the @author section on top of the gadget file.
The license is not explicitly stated, however by saving an edit to a Wikimedia Foundation wiki one "irrevocably [agrees] to release [the contribution] under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license and the GFDL.. So choose one of those (or both) as you like. Or we could come to an agreement for a third license. –Krinkletalk 21:51, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
I for one am open to releasing my contributions there under a MIT-like license. --Magnus Manske (talk) 23:20, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Me as well :) Hereby recordedKrinkletalk 06:46, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Von Hand kolorierte alte Kupferstiche

Durch die Handarbeit entstehen kleine Abweichungen. Damit wird jedes Blatt zu einem Original, wie ein Fingerabdruck. Diese alten Kupferstich-Serien gleichen sich nicht wie Banknoten. Ich habe Deinen Namen als Bildgeber gesehen zu einem Foto von mir mit einem Blatt aus meinem Besitz. Damit machst Du Dich strafbar. Ich besitze 2 Exemplare dieses mit Wasserfarbe kolorierten Stichs, was die Variabilität und Individualität der Originale angeht. Wenn Du das Plagiat nichts löschst, beauftrage ich meinen Anwalt, gegen dich vorzugehen. Einen Plagiator hat er bereits beim Wickel. - - H.-P.Haack (talk) 06:52, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

@H.-P.Haack, nun mal mit der Ruhe. Du beschuldigst hier den Falschen. Magnus Manske ist lediglich der Programmierer des Upload-Progamms/bots. Wenn Dritte nun irrtümlich ihn als Urheber deklarieren, ist das zwar ärgerlich (passiert mir auch gelegentlich, dass ich, weil ich mal eine Datei umbenannt habe, von Dritten als Urheber benannt werde), aber nicht die Schuld von Magnus. --Túrelio (talk) 07:55, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Hallo Magnus Manske Ich habe das Problem, das ich keine Bilder mehr mit dem Commonshelper verschieben kann. Die Meldung des Commonshelper lautet:"Everything seems to be OK. Log will be written to /tmp/chquaqsE-dir/debug.txt." Also eigentlich kein Problem. Ausserdem, und darum mache ich kein Ticket im jira auf, kommt der Fehler offfensichtlich nur bei mir vor. Denn auch heute hat dein Bot Dateien hochgeladen. Also funktioniert der Helper bei den anderen. Falls das dir noch hilft: Der Code der wahrscheinlich der Log ist siehst folgerndermassen aus: Querying CommonSense ...done.Querying image data ...done. Retrieving image description ...done.

User:File Upload Bot (Magnus Manske), Flickr images and Flickrreview tags

Please modify the added {{Flickrreview}} tags so that they use ISO 8601 date format 2012-03-22 and not March 22, 2012. This will avoid lots of reports of invalid tags from Slobot date normalizing. This may also apply to other tools used to upload Flickr files. --Denniss (talk) 21:39, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Mascot name

Your bot added File:Jack, Jesse, Julie.JPG. The description says Juction Jack along side his family, Juction Jesse and Juntion Julie.. I am wondering if you knew if that last name might be "Juction Julie" in light of the other two? Or could all three possibly be "Junction"? Y12J (talk) 02:29, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

I wouldn't know, but can redirect your keen eye to the following line in the file description page:

Obviously, if you gently decide to grant me the permission, your name (or your nickname) and the link of the pictures will be correctly cited in the credits of my publication.


The 3 photos which I would use are:

Hi Koolstra, my tool can use WikiSense to auto-guess categories, if instructed to do so by the tool operator. --Magnus Manske (talk) 08:47, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

File Upload Bot - Uploadzähler

Hallo Magnus Manske, wäre es möglich, für Dein Bot einen "Uploadzähler" für die Benutzer einzurichten? Mich würde mal interessieren, wie viele Bilder ich bereits verschoben habe... Grüße --Brackenheim (talk) 18:42, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Sempervivum name

I have chaned the name of two of your Sempervivum images, as the cultivar name was a synonym:

MediaWiki:FileComments.js

Hi, in addition to MediaWiki:FileComments.js there are three templates, {{Filecommentstart}}, {{Filecommentend}} and {{Filecommentfavourite}}. The templates are uncategorised (which is how I found them - Special:UncategorizedTemplates) and marked as test, and the script is uncategorised and undocumented, and hasn't been edited since Aug 2011. Is the script functional? What should be done with it and its templates? Thanks. Rd232 (talk) 21:25, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Picture of Ari Puheloinen

Hi, i see that you have uploaded the picture of Markku Koli, a Finnish Lt. Ger. Can you upload the picture of Ari Puheloinen and add it to Commons?--82.128.222.232 12:11, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

tr:Template:Bilgi and transwiking done by User:File Upload Bot (Magnus Manske)

Hi Magnus,

I'm not sure if it's still absent, but at File:Asaritevfik.jpg your bot (and User:Miya who operated it) didn't recognize the a/m file description template and thus provided an incomplete file description page.

Per tr:Special:MostLinkedTemplates, the template is currently used about 7,595 times there. --  Docu  at 08:36, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

Erroneous categories with bot uploads

Again, in June and July numerous pictures have been uploaded with your bot, having included erroneous categories (standard: geographic information systems, identifiers, encodings, etc. are included). You claim that you are not responsible for uploading, but that the uploader is using some automated categorization tool. Well, as you are the bot owner: can't you just stop this malfunctioning automatic category finder? And can't you help cleaning up the mess? It's a big job to do this by hand and it is very frustrating that bots can mess things up much faster than I can repair it by hand. It is also very frustrating that when bots mess things up, rarely anyone is wiling to take responsibility. As an example of an erroneous categoryzation of a picture, included by your bot: see File:Sawtooths from South 4.JPG. KKoolstra (talk) 07:09, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

And again, my bot is not choosing the categories. See my previous reply. --Magnus Manske (talk) 14:16, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
But who choses the categories then? You say its not the bot, but a tool used by the bot. But who is responsible than for that tool? And is the bot owner not also responsible for the tools the bot is using? It's always the same with those bots: if they make mistakes, no-one seems to be responsible... It is your bot who is listed as the uploader, not someone else, so don't be surprised that I come to you for some explanation! KKoolstra (talk) 12:38, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
Transfered from en.wikipedia by User:Fredlyfish4 using CommonsHelper is in the comment column. Of course help recourses (including screenshots) about how the whole process works and how CommonSense does it's category-guesses would be fine. -- RE rillke questions? 12:44, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

Jira tkt

Hi, instead of leaving a note here I filed my request as you explicitly ask on this page. Thanks for your time. --Elitre (talk) 15:03, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

And here is another one. Regards, --Elitre (talk) 15:48, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Dear Magnus Manske, do you wish to be credited with " © Magnus Manske"? As it is not directly specified. Or do you waive any reference on your person? Thanks for your response.

Best, C. Eisner

Hello, which specific image are you referring to? There's quite a few of them on Ricinus communis. --Magnus Manske (talk) 08:53, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
