OgreBot Status[edit]

Hi Magog the Ogre. It seems that the daily updates have been "on vacation" for about a week. Is this a general or a lasting phenomenon? Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 12:12, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

@Rsteen just temporarily broken. Sometimes needs quick fixes, sometimes long ones. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:33, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

oldver.php - upload log[edit]

Hi! Sometimes I want to upload old versions but sometimes I only want to add an upload log. It seem you can only make an upload log if you also upload old versions of the files. Perhaps you could make a change so it is possible to create an upload log without transferring a file? --MGA73 (talk) 17:55, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

About File:Asia Minor ca 740 AD-es.svg[edit]

Hello, sir, seems like these two images (File:Anatolia ca 740 AD-es.svg & File:Asia Minor ca 740 AD-es.svg) are so similiar except captions of images and colors of roads. I just want to know whether they are the same one and could I make a redirection with one of them? -- Vikarna 16:07, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

Deletion of Fred Trump images[edit]

Regarding the two deleted images, can you explain why you believe the Brooklyn Eagle paper renewed its copyright of past works? I see no evidence of this. UpdateNerd (talk) 23:13, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

It's right here: Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:04, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
@Magog the Ogre: I believe you are in error; that link is just a list of all renewals. The entry for the Brooklyn Eagle says "no issue renewals found in CCE or registered works database" and "First renewed contribution in January 6, 1933; see 1961 January-June". (The images you deleted are from 1940 & 1950.) The link of periodicals renewed from January-June 1961 has no entry for the Brooklyn Eagle. UpdateNerd (talk) 06:13, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
I will open a discussion shortly. That will be more fruitful. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 16:30, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
Please do so at your earliest convenience as I believe the removals were unjustified. Note that a number of international wikis are affected by the sudden removal of files. UpdateNerd (talk) 23:43, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
@@UpdateNerd: upon further thought, please take the issue to Commons:Undeletion requests. I showed a clear source indicating the issues were renewed starting in 1933. You countered that by pointing only to a single page in the renewal log. You'll have to provide a better explanation than that. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:00, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
OK, this appears to be a simple misunderstanding. The images were published in 1940 and 1950. That means they were clearly published after the 1933 renewal, and barring the discovery of new information, were not subsequently renewed. I will happily file an undeletion request to resolve all this. UpdateNerd (talk) 01:08, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
OK, I've changed my mind. Sorry I am in a bad mood. Actually it looks like you've already handled it. But I do plan to file for a deletion request still. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:34, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

Template:PD-ROC-Presidential Office Gazette[edit]

Why Category:PD-ROC-Traffic Markings there? Being a CheckUser and an administrator would have to be a good model obeying Commons:Categories#Find_an_appropriate_category being an official policy. In the interest to avoid edit wars, I have provisionally redirected Category:PD-ROC-Presidential Office Gazette to Category:PD-ROC-Traffic Markings just to negatively tolerate, not to positively agree, your thought. Better reconsider how your bot may work.--Jusjih (talk) 01:21, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

@Jusjih: Correct. The bot uses the categories. It may not be ideal, and I might not do it the same if I had to go back, but I built the bot understanding that we hold hidden categories for all license templates. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:36, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
Then what would happen if redirecting Category:PD-ROC-Traffic Markings to Category:PD-ROC-Presidential Office Gazette? Maybe it will still work for your bot? What is the name of your bot?--Jusjih (talk) 02:16, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
@Jusjih: those are for two different templates. If you want them to have a shared category, it might be better to group them under a more neutral name like the already-existent Category:PD-ROC-exempt. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:56, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
