Hemedana Jêrîn[edit]

I took this photo. So, all rights belong to me .Mehk63message 08:47, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

@Mehk63: you still need to provide the source and license on the description page. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:56, 11 July 2016 (UTC)



I 'm very surprised, finding some pictures take by your bot to strange galleries. Look at File:ORP Mewa 2016 A 109.jpg for example. This is minesweeping device, and is used in four galleries. Let's agree, it's on war-ship, so maybe in watercrafts, but it is not in Łódź (city in Poland, 300 km from sea), never been in Paris and show no bridge (ship's or over river).

I'm not complaing, no harm for me or files, but it shows something is not correct, I suppose. Regards. Ciacho5 (talk) 21:05, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

@Ciacho5: thanks for the note. This is due to poor categorization on Commons in combination with users not watching their galleries. I think I am going to attach a warning to the top of each gallery because this causes too much confusion. I may also start removing galleries more often of users who aren't being vigilant.

Also, I already have plans for a technical change that will catch misbehaving galleries in more situations. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:03, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

your deletion request[edit]

If you HAD bothered to check the image description you would have seen that the file was a derivative of another one that IS in the public domain. I had no idea how to properly tag it (and I didn't even see the usual wizard, what seems strange in retrospect), so please exchange the current tag {{De DZfG|1891|06|016|018}} with the proper one. Thanks. --Enyavar (talk) 08:25, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

@Enyavar: Commons policy states that it is the responsibility of uploaders to tag their images. It is not anyone else's. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:43, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for that clarification. Who do I need to ask which tag is the proper one in this case? --Enyavar (talk) 11:04, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
@Enyavar: you can ask me. It looks OK to me now. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:42, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

File:A True Narrative of the Horrid Hellish Popish-Plot 2.jpg[edit]

Hi! Please, check this file: File:A True Narrative of the Horrid Hellish Popish-Plot 2.jpg. I've just uploaded it. Is it OK (license etc.)? --Regasterios (talk) 13:34, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

@Regasterios: it was good but I tweaked it a bit. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:41, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

I deleted the second one as a copyright violation. I don't know what you mean by "is fake." You can start a deletion request if you have a problem with it. You can write in Portuguese if it is easier. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:38, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Loss of information[edit]

Hi Magog the Ogre. In this case and other recent transfers by CommonSupporter your bot removed malformed but valuable information such as the description. Is there a good solution? --Leyo 06:46, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

@Leyo: that's definitely a bug, noted. Sorry, my time is limited, will fix when I get it. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:11, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
It seems the bot is actually smarter than I thought. Those fields are invalid. Still the bot should handle it better. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:21, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
Sure, they are technically invalid, since the parameter names are in German. It seems that the output of the OAuth Uploader developped by Magnus Manske is not usable for transfers from als.wikipedia. --Leyo 22:02, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

ok, thanks[edit]
