Help VN[edit]

Hello,
I just discovered the contributions of 47.151.26.64.
I described in User_talk:47.151.26.64 the problem.
Is there a way to block this contributor and revert his recent contributions?
Best regards Liné1 (talk) 20:19, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

@Liné1: these edits are weird. Some of them are correct ([1] wouldn't work anyway), but a lot of them are removing useful information. This looks like someone who doesn't completely understand how it works. I don't think it's a bot, the edits are not regular enough. Not sure what to make of this. Multichill (talk) 20:33, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
Ok, I will revert manually. regards Liné1 (talk) 05:59, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
He did multiple modifications on each page so I cannot revert automatically. It will take me ages.
Could you at least tell him to contact me before further changes involving {{VN}}, please.

Encoding problem for BotMultichill[edit]

The bot makes an encoding error on som SMK artworks both for the title and the filename, see, e.g., [2]Fnielsen (talk) 09:06, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

So I imported the items in 2015 and later added image suggestions. Looks like I didn't commit the latest version so I'ĺl look into it when I get home. I think I remember the source itself having encoding problems, but not sure if I'm mixing up collections. Multichill (talk) 21:11, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Multilingual captions testing is available[edit]

Commons Beta[edit]

Hello Multichill,

Would you be as kind to grant me access to the Commons Beta server for the purpose of learning Commons:GWT at the Women Tech Storm in two weeks? Ciell (talk) 19:38, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

@Ciell: je moet wel zelf een nieuw account aanmaken op https://commons.wikimedia.beta.wmflabs.org/ (Ciell bestaat niet) en dan kan een van deze gebruikers jou het juiste vlaggetje geven. Multichill (talk) 20:06, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

List of Monuments in multiple languages[edit]

Hi User:Multichill, To organize Wiki loves monuments 2018 in Morocco, I would like to make a complete list of monuments based on the data from the ministry of culture website. The thing is that this needs to be done in at least two languages (Arabic, French and probably also in English). Thanks for any hints or previous experiences that would save us time. Abdeaitali (talk)

@Abdeaitali: I would make a Wikidata item for each monument at use that as the data for the competition. @Jean-Frédéric: any input here? Multichill (talk) 12:15, 8 May 2018 (UTC)
Thanks @Multichill:, we are currently compiling the list in an excel spreadsheet (now only in French and later in Arabic too). I hope that it is not very hard to upload these to Wikidata later --Abdeaitali (talk) 07:38, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Localization of Abusefilter warnings[edit]

Hi! In my opinion, all Abusefilter warning messages should be localized in "autotranslated mode", with displaying based on UI language.

As example, MediaWiki:Abusefilter-warning-overwriting-artwork is displayed in the upload form and localization of this is very important. My proposal is not to create a lot of localization sub-messages, but to call (through a «Autotranslate») template that could be marked with translation markers (as custom license tags).

Proposed new code for MediaWiki:Abusefilter-warning-overwriting-artwork (calling through template Template:Abusefilter-warning-overwriting-artwork) is:

{{Autotranslate|base=Template:Abusefilter-warning-overwriting-artwork}}

For other Abusefilter warnings i am propose these same way. --Kaganer (talk) 13:33, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Don’t mix different translation systems. This is a MediaWiki system message so you should use that system to translate it. These kind of creative solutions are just a source of confusion and bugs. Multichill (talk) 14:07, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
OK. This is may be translated within the proposed translatable page (available for everyone), and then copied to the message. As example, Russian translation is done. --Kaganer (talk) 17:31, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
Please also change in base message direct links Commons:Overwriting existing files to [[Special:MyLanguage/Commons:Overwriting existing files|Commons:Overwriting existing files]] or to {{ll|Commons:Overwriting existing files}}. --Kaganer (talk) 17:34, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

What properties does Commons need?[edit]

Greetings,

Structured Commons will need properties to make statements about files. The development team is working on making the software ready to support properties; the question is, what properties does Commons need?

You can find more information and examples to help find properties in a workshop on Commons. Please participate and help fill in the list, and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:53, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

WLM monument list[edit]

Hello User:Multichill, I have compiled the list of monuments in Morocco in a table (here) and I would like to make the list available foR WLM 2018. Any hints on how to easily do it, thanks Abdeaitali (talk) 10:38, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Good to hear! I can't see that table (it requires me to login), can you open it up or publish it somewhere else? I would create items on Wikidata for the monuments. Multichill (talk) 10:57, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

New upload[edit]

Hi! I gave it a try, but it looks like I made something wrong? Do I have to type a template in the artist and Location fields? Please check: File:Donato_mascagni_e_altri,_personalità_dell'ordine_servita,_40_ludovico_da_parigi.jpg Thank you! --Sailko (talk) 10:38, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

@Sailko: It looks fine with me. It does look a bit messed up before the bot tidies it up, but that's intentional, the current version looks fine. Multichill (talk) 20:40, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
It's cool then! I am gonna use it! Can I also use for 3d objects (scuplture, etc.?) --Sailko (talk) 07:22, 26 July 2018 (UTC)
No, you shouldn't use it for 3D objects. If this works out well, we can always make a similar one for 3D works. Multichill (talk) 11:48, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

Expiry of GWToolset user group memberships[edit]

There is a proposal on the Bureaucrat's noticeboard to automatically expire GWT memberships after one year unless the user requests an extension. Please add your views and suggestions to the discussion. The reasonably informal process for getting access to GWT access will remain as is.

Undeleting removed files[edit]

Hi, is it possible to restore images deleted long time ago? I'd like to restore pictures from here: User_talk:Timaska#Please link images deleted probably because of lack of categorisation. If you restore them I will put them into appropriate categories. The pictures I'd like to restore are:
