Category:Deletion requests April 2009

Hi Multichill. Would it be possible for your bot to create these categories as soon as needed (on the first day of each month)? --Leyo 13:24, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Combine of two categories

Hi can you combine these categories Category:Baritone horns and Category:Baritone Horns. The content of both is the same. Greets --Flow2 (talk) 14:10, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Images from the Deutsche Fotothek

After adding a category to any of the bot's uploaded photos, the category of Images from the Deutsche Fotothek needing categorization gets removed. Would you have anything against adding the category Images from the Deutsche Fotothek to the template of the Deutsche Fotothe?--Diaa abdelmoneim (talk) 16:42, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks--Diaa abdelmoneim (talk) 17:56, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Nosko, Eugen

Would it be possible for the bot to add a template Template:Eugen Nosko to images of him? Till now I think most images are from him and it would be best having a template with a category of him embeded in the template.--Diaa abdelmoneim (talk) 17:34, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

I created the template Creator:Eugen_Nosko would u consider adding it to the images created by him, mentioned in the metadata. --Diaa abdelmoneim (talk) 17:52, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

deleted image?

could you take a look?

Henna (talk) 09:07, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Essential source information were missing, e.g. who made the picture. --Leyo 09:24, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Great Images of NASA

He Multi. I have the following for you.

It uses the categories:

It creates:

  • errorlog.txt - contains any download errors. these entries should probably be removed from by hand.
  • all the high res jpgs.

Hope this will do, let me know if you think there should be any changes. TheDJ (talk) 21:00, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Images by user FAU521

Hi, I have try to find a category like aviation timetables or something like this but no luck. The three images are exacttly that: images of Airline timetables.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk • contribs) 15:00, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

I doubt the images User:FAU521 uploaded are free. Multichill (talk) 13:11, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Dupe message

You removed it again but still. Where there any images not replaced? Because Dupes-Tool and/or the CommonsDelinker-message showed everything as deleted. Or if the CommonsDelinker told that he had problems replacing then I walked through the projects doing it manually. So if there were cases where the tools showed wrong and that I can't trust them completly currently I need to know because then I need to figure out another way to see if they were replaced. The only stuff I usually don't replace manually are imgages in old archives (and GeorgHH's bad-filename-list). -- Cecil (talk) 14:44, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Question retour. I just checked the CommonsDelinker-Log. Except one Commons-gallery (which I repaired now) all images from the last hour where from cases where the local queues where not fast enough or where both files where marked as dupes. You had me worried for a few minutes. I was already afraid that there are now WP-articles without their images ;-). -- Cecil (talk) 15:14, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Civertan Photogoraps

Hello Multichill,

Thank you for noticing the categories of our photogrphs. The file Menoire was really uncategorized, so I did it. But as I see, the other pictures categorized since your last notification, I found them in the following places: Category:Aerial photographs of Hungary Category:Hungaryn Category:Budapest. please check them, and let me know, if there is any following problem. Regards, Civertan

Looks good, nice images! Multichill (talk) 19:47, 23 April 2009 (UTC)


Me perdoe mas não consegui categorizar as imagens,sei apenas criar essas imagens. Se você conseguir categorizar ficarei grato por isso. Abraços e tenha um bom dia.

Sorry, i don't understand this. You probably want to have a look at Commons:Categories. Multichill (talk) 19:47, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Dirsmith1 Playboy Mansion

Multichill: With your sage counsel and advice, three images have been uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. Do they contain the kind of detail you like? If so, I will try to create a few more, including the Quicktime movie which is fascinating.

How can at least a few of these images be seen on the Playboy Mansion site directly?

And what other categories would you like to see added? I will try to create these but am clearly a novice at fully understanding the technical aspects of your highly complex and sophisticated Wikipedia site.

Can we add directly as an edit any simple links to any site?

Again, thanks for all your efforts. Dirsmith1

PS We do not know too much about all of the intricacies of how to use this TALK page. Maybe you can email us directly directly as you have in gthe past.

Hi User:Dirsmith1 , i totally missed this message. I'll just send you an email about this. Multichill (talk) 19:58, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Zeer veel foto's van Terence Ong genomen in Singapore

Dag Multichill, bij het catalogiseren van "Media needing categories" ben ik héél veel foto's genomen in Singapore van Terence Ong tegengekomen. Het blijkt dat hij is gestopt met zijn activiteiten. Bij een aantal foto's heb ik de categorie toegevoegd, maar het is onbegonnen werk om het allemaal manueel te doen en ik heb er eigenlijk ook geen zin in. Een Singaporees kan dat beter doen. Is het mogelijk om jouw bot te laten gaan over zijn bijdragen en in het geval er nog geen categorie aanwezig is en er in de summary het woord Singapore staat, om de categorie Singapore toe te voegen met de bekende vermelding dat een bot het heeft gedaan en dat het nog manueel moet worden gecontroleerd? Dan zijn al die foto's in ieder geval vanuit de vergetelheid gehaald. Wouter (talk) 19:08, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Volledigheidshalve een willekeurige foto File:Goldbell_Tower_2.JPG voor de links naar hem. Wouter (talk) 20:52, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Vroeg wat hulp van een actieve, cooperatieve commonist ter plaatse. --Foroa (talk) 21:07, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Naar aanleiding van de vraag van JackLee heb ik manueel 1083 foto's in de categorie Singapore gezet. Wouter (talk) 07:54, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
Mooi. Een algemene categorie die je kan uitzoeken is toch een stuk beter dan {{Uncategorized}}. Multichill (talk) 09:09, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

File:ArtMechanic Vitruvian Man.jpg

Würdest Du bitte dafür sorgen, dass der Unsinn auf der Bildbeschreibungsseite von File:ArtMechanic Vitruvian Man.jpg aufhört! Dieses Bild ist nur für meine Benutzerseite geeignet und bedarf keiner Kategorisierung. -- ArtMechanic (talk) 23:02, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

We have a category for that as well... Category:Personal images TheDJ (talk) 23:59, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Und warum setzt Du dann diese Kategorie nicht ein? Das wäre sinnvoller als die dumme Aktion eines dummen bots. -- ArtMechanic (talk) 15:09, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
The stupid bot reminds stupid users to please add stupid categories because we got a stupid backlog which is increasing with about 300 stupid files each stupid day. -- Stupid Multichill (talk) 19:43, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

tell me how? ¿dime cómo?

No sé categorizar fotos dime cómo lo puedo hacer para seguir contribuyendo con wikipedia

same here, it ' s too difficult to "categorize" download images. Commons should tell us how to do it in a simpliest way. Thanks for your help!

Commons:Categories (available in multiple languages) is a good place to start. Multichill (talk) 19:13, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

watermark in File:2004 Rit 14.jpg

Yo added {{Watermark}} to this image but I can not locate it. --Jarekt (talk) 17:06, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Most of the uploads by this user have a watermark at the top. I guess not this one. Multichill (talk) 17:08, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. There were cases when I removed {{Watermark}} to be told latter that I just did not noticed it. --Jarekt (talk) 18:10, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Watermarks can be very tricky. Multichill (talk) 09:09, 29 April 2009 (UTC)


I got always messages from your bot of pictures which are already perfectly categorized. Fix this bot please. This is annoying. --Micha L. Rieser (talk) 21:58, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Bot is not broken. You're just not looking close enough. Check the timestamps, when my bot left you a note these images were uncategorized. Please categorize your uploads. Multichill (talk) 22:00, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
I always categorize my uploads! But I found the reason why some are not. This stupid upload form doesn't accept the category unless you press this (accept) button. So I write the category in the text field and upload the file and then there is no category in the description. Next time I only use the basic form. --Micha L. Rieser (talk) 21:21, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Just some stupid vandal. Multichill (talk) 20:47, 16 April 2009 (UTC)


You just removed default sort from the template above ([5]). I was wandering if it was causing any problems. It was meant to help sorting of creator templates in category:Creator templates. All other creator templates have similar {{DEFAULTSORT:}}. --Jarekt (talk) 20:25, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Ah, that's why you did it! I added a sortkey option. Using defaultsort looks kind of hackish to me. Multichill (talk) 20:46, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Yes that is cleaner. {{DEFAULTSORT:}} approach was easier since template:creator is a protected page and I can not modify it without involving other users. Now we need to change all the {{DEFAULTSORT:}} to sortkey statements in all the other creator templates. I will probably run it tonight. --Jarekt (talk) 21:19, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
If you're going to do a botrun, please remove the extra | too, like this edit. Multichill (talk) 21:22, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
OK --Jarekt (talk) 21:28, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Can you figure this out?

Why isn't Category:2008–2009 Israel–Gaza conflict casualties empty. Null edits do nothing. Rocket000 (talk) 01:22, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

See Commons:Village_pump/Archive/2009Mar#bug_in_categories.3F, typical problem with inaccurate counters and template driven category names (there are several such categories in the non-empty type of categories) : solution is to add an image to the category and to remove it again: that will force a reset of the counter. I would worry more about the strange behaviour in this page. --Foroa (talk) 05:36, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
So after we fix them we shouldn't have anymore? (And yeah, I notice that other bug too). Rocket000 (talk) 06:05, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Foto's verwijderen en vervangen

Hallo Multichill. Ik heb hier en daar, bij een bepaalde foto en in het algemeen, al een verzoek laten vallen, maar geen reactie gezien. Nu wil ik het via jou proberen. Ik wil nl. graag een aantal van mijn foto's (definitief) van wikipedia verwijderen, om deze door een andere en /of een andere versie te vervangen. Hoe moet ik dan te werk gaan? Ik ben zelf sysop op de Limburgse wikipedia. Alvast bedankt voor je antwoord.--Aelske (talk) 08:31, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Waarom wil je deze foto's verwijderd hebben? Multichill (talk) 08:37, 17 April 2009
Gewoon omdat ik in dit geval de laatste versie wil laten staan voor GFDL en de de betere en eerste versie voor mijzelf wil houden! Moch er iemand zijn, die de eerst versie reeds gekopieerd heeft, dan heb ik helaas pech gehad. Maar het is nu nog de tijd om een en ander te voorkomen! Als je dit zou willen doen, graag, en als je dit niet kunt, zou ik de naam van iemand willen hebben die dat wél kan en wil doen. Misschien dat ik komende tijd nog meer foto's wil uitwisselen.--Aelske (talk) 07:46, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
We hebben meer dan 4 miljoen afbeeldingen dus de kans dat een verzoek op een individuele afbeelding door iemand wordt opgemerkt is vrij klein. Ik zie dat je een aantal afbeeldingen die je hebt vrijgegeven onder de GFDL en die ik heb overgezet hebt vervangen door postzegels. Dat lijkt me geen goed plan. Multichill (talk) 18:58, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Wat is dit voor moeilijk gedoe! Als mij op de Limburgse wikipedia zo'n simpel verzoek gedaan wordt (als zijnde sysop en moderator) om een artikel, 'n vergissing of iets derg. te verwijderen, dan kom ik gewoon, zover het in mijn macht ligt, degeen tegemoet. Het is immers totaal geen moeite! Gewoon een knopje indrukken. Waarom verwijder je niet gewoon deze (mijn eigendom!) foto [[File:Tersjtraotewkped07.JPG]]? (En graag definitief!). Dat hoeft toch geen probleem te zijn? Ik wil héél graag deze (mijn) foto in al zijn varianten, nieuwe en oude versies, gewoon niet meer vrijgeven (©) op WIKIPEDIA (zij was per ongeluk upgeload). Het verzoek heb ik aan jou gesteld omdat jij degeen bent geweest, die zonder te aan te kondigen (doch achteraf gemeld) al mijn foto's getransporteerd hebt van mijn gebruikerspagina (li: Gebroeker: Aelske) naar commons. Met het gevolg dat ik toen hals over kop al mijn foto's moest gaan beoordelen e.d.--Aelske (talk) 08:31, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Beste Aelske, je hebt je afbeeldingen vrijgegeven onder de GFDL. Deze vrijgave kan je niet intrekken. Multichill (talk) 09:03, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Ik herhaal hier even wat ik al in de Kroeg meldde, maar nu met bestandsnamen erbij. Ik hou het maar even bij Perl. Ik heb er een haat-liefdeverhouding mee, want de ontdekking van PHP vond ik een verademing, maar Python hou ik even af. Perlwikipedia is inmiddels opgenomen in de standaard library van Activestate onder de naam MediaWiki::Bot. Ik heb het gebruikt, het ziet er handig uit die classes, maar ik krijg een foutmelding bij de toepassing. Misschien verklaart die wel meer vreemde verschijnselen die ik meemaakte de laatste tijd. Kennelijk sta ik (of de bestanden File:Gocursus-dia1-1.png en File:Gocursus-dia1-2.png) op een blacklist: De prompt geeft terug: Unknown error: "titleblacklist-forbidden-edit". Er wordt verwezen naar de admin als je die fout tegenkomt. Kun je me hiermee? -Ger Hanssen (talk) 14:38, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

uncatogorized Cdn Rustic pony and Campolina related

Dear Multichill, Thank you for your notification. I have tried to follow the directions on categorizations but still seem to be hit or miss. Please do not delete these images until I get the hang of this. The Rustic Pony in particular took a lot of effort to acquire and I believe the page really benefits from this image. I will try to revisit these images but find the commons a bit tricky to navigate despite enjoying posting images.

If you have any suggestions, they are very welcome. Best,--Amazona01 (talk) 23:26, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Being uncategorized is not a reason for deletion so take your time to get the hang of it! Multichill (talk) 18:48, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Template:Potd description

Have you abandoned this little project? If so, I was going to send my bot out to simply add a category the templates. If not, I will help out with adding this to the templates. Either way, it doesn't matter to me, I just would like to get them off the uncategorized list. Rocket000 (talk) 19:15, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

I forgot about Template:Potd page. Rocket000 (talk) 19:23, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! Rocket000 (talk) 17:02, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

I see you're also adding {{uncategorized}} to the other uncategorized templates. Awesome! One little issue, though. We can't categorize templates that are used as preloaded text (since they also preload the noinclude parts). There aren't too many of these so it's not really an issue but just something to watch for (like {{VIC-nom-preload}}). I made a list awhile ago here. It may be out of date but there can't be many more. Rocket000 (talk) 18:28, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Yes, i was tired of looking for the uncategorized files. The preloading implementation sucks. I was thinking about running a regular bot to tag uncategorized templates. Could you put the list of preload templates on a separate page and fully protect it so i can use this with my bot? Multichill (talk) 18:43, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
Sure, and I'll look for others. I moved it to Commons:WikiProject Templates/Category scheme/Templates that shouldn't be categorized. If the description is problem I can move it back to the category scheme page and just keep the list itself (but this way it's all together for transcluding). Rocket000 (talk) 19:36, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
I can do a little template trick to categorize these images. Multichill (talk) 09:13, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Categories for images

I've added categories to some of the images and removed some since they did not fit. Whipsandchains (talk) 03:43, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Great! Multichill (talk) 18:44, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

stop it please!

please stop your bot walking on my nerves putting uncategorized images on my user discaussion. All this images are included in galleries, so there is no need for categories! Thank you --Ixitixel (talk) 11:29, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Please add categories to your uploads. Galleries don't replace categories. Multichill (talk) 18:45, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Unable to add categories

Hello, I know to add categories, but was unable to as I kept getting this error: A database error has occurred Query: SELECT cl_to as cat FROM categorylinks LEFT JOIN u_daniel_cache.commonswiki_nontopics ON namespace = 14 AND title = cl_to where cl_from = 6590412 AND id IS NULL Function: getCategories Error: 1146 Table 'u_daniel_cache.commonswiki_nontopics' doesn't exist (sql-s3) I am getting it now when I try to view the galery also.--Mrboire (talk) 11:30, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Which tool are you using exactly? Do you have an example? Multichill (talk) 11:47, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Great that your bot help categorizing

This edit [6] made some duplicate categories. Maybe you can fix it.

If your bot does not try to add categories on all uncategorized images it is very welcome to work on Category:Files moved from da.wikipedia to Commons requiring review. It makes checking bot-moves faster :-) --MGA73 (talk) 12:11, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

That's probably because of database lag. I'm not going to fix it as the image is tagged with {{Check categories}} anyway. I'll fire up a bot to work on uncategorized files in use at dawp. Should give good results now you added a lot of Commonscat templates. I have the bot running on articles at nlwp too, seems to work great. Multichill (talk) 14:58, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
The fix: I did not want you to fix the image - I could do it myself - I thougt the script needed a fix. The botrun on files: That sounds great - thank you. I just found out I can use my bot to do the trick myself, so I did some testruns. I found out, that these files [7] [8] [9] were categorized in "Category:People of the French Revolution" with no good reason. Do you have an idea why? --MGA73 (talk) 16:47, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
No idea, can't seem to find the link. Commonsense has a debug option, but i forgot how to use it. You should ask Duesentrieb how to do that. Haven't seen you on irc for a while, what happened? Multichill (talk) 18:28, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Cat'ing notice on template subpages- Busy work?

Re your bot edit[10]

With all due respect, categorizing template subpages is busy work, isn't it? Unless it is a doc, which is autocatted anyway, helper templates for the Basepagename template. -J JMesserly (talk) 17:17, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Our goal is to get every template categorized (not many left). Rocket000 (talk) 23:42, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
Nice list now. Multichill (talk) 09:14, 29 April 2009 (UTC)


Hi Multichill. I got a message from your bot about a file without categories, but I can see categories there. Can you tell me what to do? Thanks, --Ginosal (User talk) 07:55, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Ok, Koroesu did it. Goodbye! --Ginosal (User talk) 07:59, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Essential Eating Sprouted Baking Cover

Hi Multichill, I noticed on my talk page that you tagged this file - File:Essential_Eating_Sprouted_Baking_Cover.jpg for missing permission, but the permission was sent and the photo has the correct license tag. Do I need to do anything else? Many thanks. Jaaq (talk) 14:06, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

After i tagged it, OTRS receieved permission and updated the image. Multichill (talk) 17:06, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

I just want to know why you still keep on erasing a page I'm trying to do. Let me know if I'm doing something wrong

Potd page

Adding {{Potd page}} to all the POTD image name subpages seems like a really bad idea to me. Before, those pages could be used easily as metadata in javascript stuff, rss feed generation, bots copying POTD images to other wikis etc., adding a template kills all those scripts and makes writing new ones more difficult, for no apparent benefit (I don't see any real advantage in having nice human-readable messages on pages no one will ever read anyway). --Tgr (talk) 08:35, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

The potd pages were flooding Special:UncategorizedTemplates. It's still very easy to get the text and you get the metadata (date and language) for free, just use regular expressions. Multichill (talk) 08:59, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Unusual behavior on your part

You've taken it upon yourself to close a discussion on another editor's talk page regarding a "Reliable Source" for a law that editor claims is the basis of his action. That discussion may be found here:[11] Is there a reason why you have unilaterally closed and archived a discussion that you are not a party to and is taking place between two other people? Do you have an opinion on the subject? . 20:34, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Because the user asked you to stop and continue somewhere else. Please go to Commons:Undeletion requests or the Village Pump. Multichill (talk) 20:37, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Actually he said he 'wasn't going to waste anymore time responding to a request for a Reliable Source'. My last post simply says that "Responding to requests for a "Reliable Source" is not considered a "waste of time" as you put it - it is a bedrock principle at the foundation of the project." And although I had nothing to add at that point, neither of us knows whether the user whose page you have unilaterally shut down and squelched speech on has. Do you make it a point to squelch discussion? Is there something inherently offensive about a reasonable request to support ones edits? I can't say I know anyone who enjoys watching those with power use it to halt criticism and questions regarding the use of that power - especially when it, as here, is so carelessly applied in the narrow self-interest of the powerful. My question is a legitimate one regarding substance and policy and your heavy-handed action to squelch dissent and hard questons should be noted for what it is. . 21:03, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Sorting of Category:Zanthoxylum

Only bunnies are allowed to hop here

Hi Cillas, why did you destroy the sorting of Category:Zanthoxylum? It's common for species to be sorted this way in genus categories. Multichill (talk) 12:48, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi multichill. I did not destroy anything. I only changed the category of some species categories in order to a better arrangement in the Category:Zanthoxylum page. I think now is right. Don't you agree?--Cillas (talk) 10:12, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
