Date cleanup[edit]

Hi Magog the Ogre, i often used your bot to cleanup the date parameter in {{information}} template. Could you do a date cleanup for the taken parameter for files that has a {{flickr}} template? [1] Thank you in advance, --Arnd (talk) 10:58, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

I will add this to my list eventually. If you'd like, you can always make a pull request at Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 04:53, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
i more saw it as a special bot run than a general change of the script. --Arnd (talk) 07:58, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
@Aschroet: I would do it through an update to the cleanup script. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 20:39, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

clean up of new upload[edit]

Hi again Magog the Ogre, maybe your task could also remove the __NOTOC__. --Arnd (talk) 22:34, 8 March 2018 (UTC)


Proofhouse Abu Dhabi.jpg
Proofhouse Riihimäki
normal use ~ 70px

Hi Magog the Ogre, for en:Proof_test#Proof_marks and general purpose concerning Commons:Approval Marks and Logos of Proofhouses i like see pics from Logos & Marks (official document of austria) on commons. The pics are free as government release. See a translation of the used technical terms. Sorrowfully can not handle a proper import for 20, 50, or more files. Perhaps you can help. Thus there would be no need to handle a large number of cases concerning probably PD ineligible files. Please read the request for help in Wikipedia:Grafikwerkstatt#Logos_&_Beschusszeichen_ein_größerer_Job Cheers --Tom (talk) 07:44, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

@Tom: I'm afraid that task is beyond me as well. I suggest going through recent uploads and finding someone who uploads a lot of illustrations. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 19:21, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Magog, sorry to disturb you once more. Please help me to fix problems with . PLS just show me once how to enter the correct informations. THX a lot. Best --Tom (talk) 14:47, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
@Tom: I see nothing wrong with the file, although I recommend PNG or SVG format. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:22, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
OK ... finally i found an official source for this files in PNG Format and saved them to the new png-file ist concerning the proofhouse of finland. THX for your patience. Best --Tom (talk) 07:00, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

My Pictures[edit]

Hi dear user! I photographed those photos when I was in museums. That is, I have not taken anyone. Please do not delete the pictures because they belong to me, and I can assure you that the pictures belong to historical personalities. If you do not believe me, I can show you the sources related to those pictures. I've used these pictures in the historical articles in the Azerbaijani Wikipedia and have written detailed information on the pictures on the page. Please take them into account and do not delete the pictures! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Elman Həsənli (talk • contribs) 11:47, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Yours sincerely, Elman Həsənli (talk) (contribs) 15:49, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

@Elman Həsənli: then you aren't the author of the photographs, and you don't own the copyright. Also, I found a good number of your images on Google, so I know your statement is in large part untrue. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:55, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Magog, ff course, you will find these pictures, because there are other people who have drawn those images but, unfortunately, have not uploaded them to Wikipedia. Once again, I can prove that you are the author and to prove that people in the pictures are historical personalities. Please value my effort and do not delete it. I took the pictures with my camera and worked on the Print program. Perhaps others have used those paintings like me, but when I was in Iran, I painted those portraits. THX for attention --Elman Həsənli (talk) 16:16, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
@Mardetanha, とある白い猫: could one of you please explain to User:Elman Həsənli the general ideas around copyright and what s/he's doing wrong? I feel there may be a language gap going on here. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 04:46, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
@Elman Həsənli qardasim sen internet gordugun Şəkilarin bura yuklieye bilmesen, Şəkillari ozun sal ve bura yukle,sualin varsa menden sor Mardetanha talk 09:08, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
@Mardetanha, とある白い猫: First of all, you can not translate it because I can speak 11 languages :) As I said, I took only one of these pictures from the internet, and the rest was photographed in museums and galleries. Don't delete photos Elman Həsənli (talk) 15:39, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
@Elman Həsənli: You are still lying. We're highly experienced with such things and can easily spot such a thing. You got many of those images off the internet. Lying about sourcing is a blockable offense on Commons. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 21:42, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
@Mardetanha, とある白い猫: Not a lie, some of the photos I downloaded were taken from the internet and delete them if needed, but not all from the internet. Maybe the same photographer has downloaded to the Internet someone else, but that does not mean that I "stole it". I know the rules and am trying to follow. If necessary, we can debate each photo, if there is a problem, delete the photo Elman Həsənli (talk) 15:10, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

Template:Blocked user with header[edit]

I just now ran across this template. I don't understand the point — isn't there some way to add a header option to {{Blocked user}}, so the header could be displayed if the option were ticked? Couldn't an operator instruct a bot to tick that option? Nyttend (talk) 11:21, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

@Nyttend: not sure why I created that. It doesn't seem very useful. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:21, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
