VisualFileChange[edit]

Hi Rillke, something seems to be broken about that (or I'm using it incorrectly). I selected a couple of uploads from User:Cunard, the result was http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Watercolor_of_Nancy_Kwan_in_a_cheongsam.jpg&diff=prev&oldid=64821039 :(. Here's what I did: 1) select "perform batch task" in the toolbox, 2) select the file, 3) choose action "OTRS-add", 4) enter {{subst:OR|id=2011120210018792|reason=processing}} within the textbox, 5) check "Clean permissions-section?". Maybe you can take a look. Cheers & a successful new year to you, —Pill (talk) 03:50, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

A successful new year to you, too. Thanks for the report. I will focus on it ASAP. -- RE rillke questions? 15:21, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Re: Quibot[edit]

I wanted to thank you for pointing out the problems with my bot's uploads. It did not occur to me that I should actually check that all metadata was copied. This is fixed now (the problem was caused by using jpegoptim, an absolutely unnecessary step anyway...). I also refreshed the images' thumbnails, as you suggested. I am confident enough that the problems you pointed out are resolved, so I already started uploading the images. If you feel like it, you can confirm that everything is OK (link to bot's contribs). Thanks again! —Quibik (talk) 20:43, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Wow, this was really fast. Checked & Ok. Thanks. You must be a professional. -- RE rillke questions? 21:34, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
Uhm, I hope you aren't being sarcastic? If so, I apologise, that I could not reply any sooner – It was not possible for me to work on the bot before the weekend. —Quibik (talk) 22:08, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
No, no sarcasm! Read point 6 of the rules above (assume good faith). I am happy to see a responsive, professional and helpful bot-operator. That's really rare here. Just have a look over the approval-page. And I know how difficult it is to create a proper-working bot. -- RE rillke questions? 22:28, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Drehdrehdreh![edit]

Hallo Rillke, hier war es zu viel http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Volterraio_-_Ginster_und_Fels.jpg&action=history  ;-) Wahrscheinlich mittlerweile irrelevant oder eh bekannt - also nur für den Fall, dass du es noch nicht weißt, dass es da zu nem "BK" kam. Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 14:43, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Ja, sorry. Da war der Bot schneller, als ich die (ziemlich große) Seite neu geladen hatte. Ich denke mir da werden so einige Dateien 2 resetexifs abbekommen haben: Immer dann wenn 2 Leute gleichzeitig an der Liste gearbeitet haben und der Rotatebot Langeweile hatte. -- RE rillke questions? 14:54, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Hehe, ja, alles klar - wie gesagt, nur damit du es weißt, dass es das Problem gibt/gab (denn die Liste ist nun ja fertig! :-) ). Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 23:30, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

per Bot eine Category hinzufügen[edit]

Moin RE rillke , vielen Dank für Deine Antwort, also es geht um meine Bilder, ich habe irgendwann angefangen Category:Images by RaBoe einzubauen, jetzt würde ich es gerne auf die "alten Bilder" ausweiten, wie viele es sind kann ich nicht sagen. ;) Des weiteren überlegt ich mir meine Bilder auch gleich so zu sortieren, das ich weiss mit welcher Kamera sie gemacht wurden, dafür habe ich ein paar Vorlagen gebaut und ebenfalls irgendwann begonnen sie einzubauen. Ich gebe zu, das sind alles nur Spielereien und ich kann gerne bis zu Wikicon warten, in der Hoffnung, das dort jemand ist, der mir das (auf Deutsch) erklären kann, denn wie schnell man einen Fehler macht, hab ich schon erlebt. ;) Tschüß und Danke Ra Boe watt?? 12:41, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Dann warte bitte bis zur Wikicon.

Also wenn in der Wikicon nicht's rauskommt, frag' noch einmal bei mir an. Es sollte möglich sein; nur macht es eben ein bisserl Arbeit. -- RE rillke questions? 13:52, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Mach ich gerne, ich warte einfach mal ab, ist ja nicht so wichtig, ich danke Dir, die Fragen und die Vorlagen werde ich schon mal ergänzen: Tschüß Ra Boe watt?? 13:58, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Um "Hast Du das ab dann immer gemacht, oder ab und an vergessen?" besser beantworten zu können hilft sicher diese Liste. -- RE rillke questions? 14:09, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

rtl[edit]

Hi Rillke, take a look at Category:Ruhollah Khomeini. {{ar}} or {{fa}} makes the text rtl automatically, but it doesn't work when it is placed inside a collapsible box. Could you please fix it? Thanks in advance AMERICOPHILE 14:42, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Please restore my file[edit]

In December 2011, I uploaded four files of my own copyright, and set permissions correctly when uploading. One of those files you flagged for deletion, claiming (incorrectly) that permissions were not set. Your warning notice included an e-mail address where I could write to set permissions (again).

I wrote to that address, and gave permissions on this file again.

The file, CC-V3.jpg, was deleted anyway.

Please restore this file. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Keithpickering (talk • contribs) 15:57, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I am sorry for the inconvenience. We have to be careful with the copyright and to verify that you are you. Unfortunately the OTRS/support-team is very small and it takes some time to process all the e-Mails. If you wrote to this address, you got a number or a "ticket"? If not, please tell me the subject of the e-Mail you sent. Thank you. -- RE rillke questions? 16:12, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Your original message stated that I should send an e-mail to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org, which I did on January 2. I did not get any response of any kind and I have no ticket number. The subject line of my email was "File permission".

Now three more of my files have delete notices on them too. Is it actually any use to write to permissions-commons, or are you just screwing with us? Do I have to write to individual talk pages and demand satisfaction? What's the deal? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Keithpickering (talk • contribs) 05:24, 12 January 2012‎ (UTC)

  1. Please sign your postings with ~~~~
  2. You could simply write on your talk-page instead of speading this. BTW, this is also suggested on top of this page.
  3. Thanks for the subject. I am going to ask whether OTRS can find your mail.

Fehler im Tool[edit]

Hallo Rainer, dein Tool ist ja der Wahnsinn! Vielen Dank dafür. Ich bekomme allerdings gerade in Chrome und Safari folgende Fehlermeldung bei „retrieving details from server“: „Error. An error occurred while exctracting tags from the page’s content ##### Error: HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ER<nicht dargestellt> DOM Exception 3“. Was mache ich falsch? Viele Grüße, --Polarlys (talk) 21:38, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Das ist eine Fehlermeldung. Also machst Du nichts falsch. Benutzt Du Monobook? In User:Polarlys/monobook.js gibt's 'nen Aufruf zu "morebits.js", siehe dazu auch die FAQ auf meiner Nutzerseite. Ich werde in den kommenden Wochen versuchen, die Probleme die dadurch verursacht werden abzustellen. Es kann aber auch was ganz anderes sein.
Bitte: Mal kurz nach Vector wechseln oder ausloggen und testen. Problem taucht trotzdem auf? Dann benötige ich folgende Angaben: -- RE rillke questions? 22:05, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Nutzer/Kategorie:
  • Skin:
Jetzt geht es. Danke :-) Was ich noch hilfreich fände: optionale Anzeige der erweiterten Bild-Informationen (information template) und eine Löschaktion. Achja, und für solche Tools sollte die Foundation den Erstellern materielle Anerkennung zukommen lassen. Grüße, --Polarlys (talk) 22:39, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
materielle Anerkennung: Nein, ich bin hier freiwillig, wie die meisten anderen und will auch nichts dafür. Allerdings wäre ich der WMF dankbar, würde sie den Projekten immer ein paar Leute zur Seite stellen (professionelle Entwickler und evtl. auch Juristen, die man fragen kann)
Löschen & Anzeige weiterer Informationen ist eigentlich Aufgabe von Gadget Gallery-Details, das Löschen funktioniert leider seit geraumer Zeit nicht (siehe dazu auch Lupos Diskussionsseite). Naja, da sowieso immer alles mit geladen wird, könnte ich es irgendwann versuchen geschickt zu integrieren. Metadaten, insbesondere Kamera&Modell werden schon bald folgen (so wie es schon in Gallery tool gemacht wird). -- RE rillke questions? 23:14, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

File:Test Wall After 4 hour Exposure at 2000f.jpg[edit]

Opticks3 spricht anscheinend für den Hersteller. Sein erstes Bild wurde allerdings wegen Urheberrechtsverletzung schnell gelöscht. Dieses Bild kam von derselben Broschüre. Anhand der Benutzerseite lässt sich mehr erkennen. Mehr sieht man auch hier. Alle verbleibenden Bilder des Benutzers stellen Produkte desselben Betriebes dar. Er hat bislang nichts anderes hochgeladen. Auf seiner Wikipedia englisch Benutzerseite versucht er die Tatsache zu verteidigen, daß ein zulassungspflichtiges Bauteil ohne Zulassung verkauft werden kann. Dann setzte er eines der Bilder (wofür er doch eine Erlaunis hat) auf einer Seite ein, die ausschließlich für zugelassene Bauteile bestimmt ist, da sie das Zulassungswesen in Nordamerika beschreibt. Zugelassen bedeutet in Deutschland DIBt zugelassen durch bestandene Prüfung und Fremdüberwachung durch ein amtliches Prüfamt. In Nordamerika erstellt das Prüfungslabor selber die Zulassung. Er benutzt also Wikipedia und Commons zu Werbezwecken unter falschen Voraussetzungen. Aber wie Túrelio schon sagte, sehen wir mal ob er darauf reagiert, das die Genehmigung des Urhebers schon zu lange aussteht. Trotz allem verstehe ich nicht, daß copyvio von anderen nachgewiesen werden muss anstatt des Benutzers der die Datei aufgeladen hat. Das ist mir etwas schleierhaft.--Achim Hering (talk) 20:02, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Hallo Achim Hering,
Nun, dass er ein Bild in der Wikipedia missbräuchlich verwendet, heißt noch lange nicht, dass wir es auf Commons löschen. Wenn die Freigabe unter einer freien Lizenz erteilt wurde, kann dieses Photo sicherlich auch andere Sachverhalte illustrieren, als vom hochladenen Nutzer angedacht. Das Photo besitzt komplette Exif-Daten und niemand war in der Lage nachzuweisen, dass der Nutzer eine Urheberrechtsverletzung begangen hat, weil es nirgendwo in höherer Auflösung verfügbar ist. Wenn man etwas kleines mit höherer Auflösung speicherst (upscaling), sieht das mit Sicherheit anders aus. Man sollte auch nicht leichtfertig andere Nutzer der Urheberrechtsverletzung anschuldigen. Das ist üble Nachrede.
Es ist doch in diesem Fall nicht vollkommen auszuschließen, dass er tatsächlich der Fotograph oder Inhaber der Rechte ist.
Wenn Microsoft-Logos, Disney-DVD-Cover o.ä. hier auftauchen, ist das ein anderer Fall. Wenn es Verdacht (aber keinen Beweis) gibt, dass der Hochlader nicht der Rechteinhaber ist, sind die Dateien mit {{subst:npd}}; bei unzureichender Quellenangabe mit {{subst:nsd}} zu kennzeichnen.
Vielen Dank für Deine interessanten Informationen. -- RE rillke questions? 21:18, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Alles paletti. Ich sehe nicht den großen Unterschied mit Microsoft, außer der Größe der Firma vielleicht. Das Bild ist zu Werbezwecken eingesetzt worden und das Urheberrecht ist klar von der Firma vermerkt und wir warten noch monatelang auf die Erlaubnis. Aber warten wir eben ab ob die Zusage trotzdem noch kommt. Was ihm die Sache anscheinend erschwert, gemäß seiner Aussage auf Wikipedia englisch, ist das die Brandprüfung vom Inhaber der Formel gefahren wurde. Der Hersteller ist von einer anderen Firma lizensiert worden. Das heißt, das das Urheberrecht nicht beim Hersteller liegt, sondern bei der Firma, die den Hersteller mit der Formel lizensiert hat. Er kann also nicht einfach den Chef fragen, sondern braucht Zusage von dem Inhaber der lizensierten Technologie. Túrelio hat ihm ja Bescheid gesagt. Bald sehen wir was da am Bach ist. Tschüß, --Achim Hering (talk) 23:38, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

ExtraTabs2 and RemoveImageTools[edit]

Re "-RemoveImageTools (now default gadget ExtraTabs2); " - how does that work? Help:Gadget-ExtraTabs2 would seem to need updating, but I don't know what to put there. Rd232 (talk) 14:39, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Gadget-ExtraTabs2.js is default since some time (wasn't me!). This is the replacement for MediaWiki:Extra-tabs.js. MediaWiki:Gadget-RemoveImageTools.js is obsolete since it is ignored by MediaWiki:Gadget-ExtraTabs2.js. If a user does not want the links, he/she can disable MediaWiki:Gadget-ExtraTabs2.

File:NetBeansLogo.gif[edit]

The lacking of an "all rights reserved" note doesn't imply the logo is free. In fact is the opposite: the lacking of a copyright note stating the logo is free is sufficient enough to think is fully copyrighted. As of COM:TOO, the "NetBeans" legend in Impact font could be uploaded under Template:Trademarked. But as for the logo itself, I think it's original enough to meet TOO. But if you wish, I can restore the image and open a deletion request. KveD (talk) 16:14, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

The first part is clear to me. But it could have been the case that the site was licensed under a free license. Checked this with http://web.archive.org now and it was not the case. Concerning TOO, I can't make a suggestion. It is basically a cube, white bordered red lines. If no complaints arrise, I see no need for a deletion-request so it can be kept deleted. Thank you.

Thanks for your attention Rillke. Mistakenly, I uploaded a picture (Capela do Porto.jpg) which has all rights reserved (a no creative license). As you could see, I hadn´t no idea about deletion process...and I tried to delete it manually, obviously it was a failure because after I found a page with deletion policies and guide, for this reason I tagged (or I tried) this picture for elimination, if you can help me, I would be very grateful.

LicenseReview.js[edit]

I was trying to add [License OK] and [License not OK] buttons on the LR div via my common.js, but looks like your LicenseReview script is overwriting the div's innerHTML and removing the existing ones there. Can you modify your script so that it only appends or prepends the [change license] link and not overwrite the current contents? --Sreejith K (talk) 09:37, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Of course. It is a relict from User:ZooFari/licensereviewer.js. Purge your cache and enjoy the changes. A disadvantage is that the "edit-buttons" to insert special characters may not work due to AJAX loading of the edit-form. But using AJAX instead of URL parameters is much safer. All scripts that check of a URL-param and then do eval(functionname) are a bit problematic from my POV. -- RE rillke questions? 16:05, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
I saw the changes in action now. Looks nice and a lot helpful than the dropdown menu. Thanks. Now I can remove my experiments from my commons.js file. Another thanks for that too. :) --Sreejith K (talk) 05:46, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Question about user messages script[edit]

Hi Rillke. Just a question. Did you place this message with the "notify user" script, did you do it by hand or did you use another script? I'm wondering, because I would like to user other information templates too (like the ones mentioned here). I'm looking forward to your anwer. Kind regards, Trijnstel (talk) 18:48, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I did so. An example on how to add messages to the selector is on Help:Gadget-UserMessages#Custom settings (custom tags) or in my common.js.
$(document).bind('scriptLoaded', function(evt, st, o) {
        if (st) {
                if ('AxUserMsg' === st && o) {

Warum keine Gruppe? Weil sie technisch nicht nötig ist. Die vorhandenen Gruppen verleihen entweder erweiterte "Rechte" oder es gibt sie, damit der Missbrauchsfilter entscheiden kann. Wenn Du Fragen hast und schnelle Antworten möchtest, kannst Du diese auch einfach im Chat stellen.
Was es mit den verschiedenen Sortierschlüsseln "*", " ", ... auf sich hat, kann ich leider auf die Schnelle nicht finden. Das ist auch ein Grund, weshalb ich nur passiv kategorisiere. -- RE rillke questions? 15:05, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

You must re-apply since it is a community-process. By the way and not so important, I wouldn't call it a feature.

Did you mean, ask for a property License review, in the future, why? --MyCanon (talk) 00:59, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi, MyCanon, I mean, when you want to be allowed to review licenses, you must go to Commons:License review/requests again. It is a community-process so I cannot simply assign you to the reviewer-usergroup. It might be possible that you don't have luck again.
Why do you want to become a license-reviewer? -- RE rillke questions? 09:22, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Re: bug report on thumbnails with & in the name[edit]

Hi, I'm hoping you're the same Rillke as showed up in IRC to report a bug with the Swift deploy around thumbnails with & in the name. (If not, please accept my apology and ignore this note.  ;) ) Thank you for the bug report! After digging for a bit AaronSchulz and I found that in some cases, Swift was unencoding portions of the URL. Some of the cases in which it unencoded bits of the url (specifically, %26 aka &) didn't match what the backend expected and the 404 was generated. We've committed and deployed code to re-encode the URL before sending it back for resizing. Please let me know if it does or doesn't fix the problem in all the cases you tried; my tests indicate that it's doing ok. Of course, maybe it will break some other image names! Thanks again for your help testing the system, and please let me know if you have any more issues or comments. -maplebed aka Bhartshorne (talk) 03:07, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

I am very thankful for you taking the time to answer me and give me links that will help me. I guess it is normal if the "Toolserver is down" that I can't download new images? I wonder if there is a place where I can get help for the most ridiculous questions of how things work like for example where to put a template and how to use it and things relating to the most basic knowledge needed to partipate better. Like I don't know if I am not deleting the former message by posting mine and such things... I only know very limited functions and that's frustrating. Und ich möchte noch dazu sagen dass ich mich gefreut habe dass Sie sich so viel Mühe geben um andere zu helfen. Vielen Dank. Dinkum (talk) 19:11, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Gerne. Fragen, auch ganz einfache, kannst Du im Commons:Forum, Commons:Bistro oder auf dem Commons:Helpdesk stellen.
  • If toolserver is down (=toolserver.org is not working), tools like the gallery that are hosted on toolserver are not working properly. Other things work, like uploading images or downloading them. To download an image, go to the file-description page (e.g. File:Red Apple.jpg) and rightclick on the image. Then click "save target in" (for the full resolution) or "save image in" for the version currently displayed.
  • Where to put a template: This depends on the context and the template.
  • Each page has a "view history"-tab on the top (next to edit). If you want to find out whether you (or someone else) deleted something, click on it, find the username (e.g. yours) and click "prev" in the same row. Now you can compare (I admit it looks ugly) what the user has added with one edit.
  • If you want to be sure not to delete anything or you don't want to get "edit-conflicts" (=page is edited the same time by 2 users), you can use the "add section"-tab from the top to create such a new section like this. The heading/summary you enter will be automatically transformed to a new section: == subject you have entered == Each talk-page has such a tab. You find all your contributions in Special:MyContributions. There is a link to your contributions close to the login link.
  • Discover and learn from other users. There are also Help resources on Commons and on Wikipedia.
  • You can also ask here any time. -- RE rillke questions? 21:41, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Maintainer[edit]

I'd be very glad to do technical maintainance as I do on enwiki, but my chances of becoming an admin here are pretty slim, as I don't even have a (good) camera, or even anything interesting to upload, which seems to be a requirement. So I remain limited to requesting protected edits. Edokter (talk) — 23:04, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Can you help me with the question of Redcifer on my talk page. I think it is written in German language. Thank you in advance--Morning Sunshine (talk) 05:27, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Script request[edit]

I was looking for a way of finding all uncategorized files in Category:Malayalam loves Wikimedia event - 2012. Do you know of any scripts that can do that? I can try to do that with API but too lazy to start something from scratch now if anything is already available. :) --Sreejith K (talk) 09:51, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Hmmm. Don't know if one of Magnus' tools is able to do the job. Docu often uses them. Otherwise You may use VisualFileChange for this task. Click here to start. If you point over the "c" it displays all categories. And you can (de-)select files with additional categories using cute selction (matches wikitext \[\[Category:) and increase the number of loaded files with each scroll down in the advanced config.
But often categories are too general or wrongly spelled. You may ask Multichill whether he can run his bot over the category ignoring the category itself. -- RE rillke questions? 10:08, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
VisualFileChange is dangerous because it does not show me what are the changes it is going to do when I click the button. I think I will use AWB to cycle the list or I will use categorymembers api to get the list of files and then loop through them though some script which I need to make. --Sreejith K (talk) 16:48, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
Since most of them need real categories or spellings fixed, it might be the best to view them individually, yes. -- RE rillke questions? 18:41, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Village_pump#Enhancing_Image_Usability[edit]

Hi Rillke, the discussion at Commons:Village_pump#Enhancing_Image_Usability made me think of your gallery script. How hard would it be to adapt the popup code you have there to do something like that? I think especially for browsing categories it would be useful. Rd232 (talk) 00:20, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

If there would be a suggestion for a concrete implementation ... Should the pop-up appear when hovering or when clicking. -- RE rillke questions? 15:21, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
Google Images was mentioned as an example, so hovering. Like here. Rd232 (talk) 17:13, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
Should the magnifying ratio be fixed, a user setting, ... ? Should additional information be displayed? -- RE rillke questions? 17:56, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
I was really thinking the popup could look very similar to your gallery script popup. Of course that doesn't involve magnification. Could it be a sensible proportion of the window width? Or maybe it would be better to pick one of the existing thumbnail sizes for a given image, and display that (based on what will fit in the window)? Rd232 (talk) 18:06, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
I guess you're too busy with other stuff to do something new... I was just hoping that with code reuse it would be relatively easy. Rd232 (talk) 11:27, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
It's more and more getting a full-time-job. But this should be not too difficult. I just want to get the renameLink and the check-categories-auto-removal (will display a dialog if it detects the template that prompts for the action; just in case someone categorizes and the categories must be checked, through) ready before. But of course you can ask someone else, if you find one willing to do it. -- RE rillke questions? 14:10, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

licenseRecognization regular expressions[edit]

Hi there! A quick (?) question. I'm looking at your code, and wondering a bit about the regular expressions. You do things like: /Category:PD[\- _]Old.*/ – why the need for [\- _] instead of just the hyphen? Is it sometimes replaced by a space or an underscore? If so, shouldn't /Category:CC[\- _]BY-SA.*/ do the same thing also for the second hyphen? Thanks! /Skagedal (talk) 22:10, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that's presumably wrong. I think I checked the API where every nonsense that ever existed is listed. Making your regular expressions not too strict may catch user's stupidity or later changes while unlikely in licensing templates. -- RE rillke questions? 22:23, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Allright, thanks for the allcategories links! I was looking through all the license categories that exist *now*, and, oh god... there are... many. /Skagedal (talk) 23:45, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
By the way, if you intend to re-use the images you must be careful with the attribution requests that some templates include: E.g. {{cc-by-sa-3.0|attribution=...}}. Some users here seem to like sending dissuasion letters. -- RE rillke questions? 22:29, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes, you can: Nearly each browser has some developer tools now: Firebug, Dragonfly, ... They all have a JavaScript console. Some of them support to switch to "multi-line" mode. Then you can copy the whole code, remove the "guards" (these are the if-statements that prevent that a script is executed multiple times (User:Rillke/LicenseReview.js doesn't have one but e.g. MediaWiki:Gadget-AjaxQuickDelete.js has if (typeof AjaxQuickDelete !== 'undefined' || namespaceNumber < 0) return;) and click execute.

What's a "deleted revision" on the gallery tool?[edit]

Hi! Your gallery tools shows that one of my uploads is "deleted revision", what does that mean? It would appear the file is there. Palosirkka (talk) 21:50, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Sorry for this. It is because MediaWiki (the server software here) does not give me any chance to list all your uploads easily. Instead GalleryTool looks up your upload log and then it gathers information about images (categories, size, ...) and then displays.
In this case, the log entry is from 2012-03-03 13:43:34 while the file version is from 2012-03-03 13:42:52 -- a difference of > 40s. So the tool assumes that the file uploaded 13:43:34 was deleted but it sees that the file still exists so it assumes, it is a deleted revision, which is wrong in this case. I could decrease the number of false-as-deleted-shown-files by increasing the time-delta-tolerance (currently 35s) but this could also cause trouble when a user uploaded a file twice in-between a short time.
You may vote on bugzilla:30522 to get MediaWiki providing a complete list of your uploads.
What is a deleted revision: Administrators can delete file revisions. They do so in case of copyright violations or other issues without deleting the whole page. -- RE rillke questions? 22:16, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Hey, no need to be sorry! And thanks for the thorough explanation. I was just a wee bit worried my image were gone, perhaps because of something I'd done. Glad it's not the case. :) Your tool is pretty cool. I'll probably go vote now. Thanks again and take care! Palosirkka (talk) 17:37, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

RenameLink[edit]

Hi Rillke, I've been getting a cascade of script errors recently (affecting lots of scripts), and after deactivating RenameLink, the only script I had installed manually (as opposed to gadget) it seems to have stopped. Rd232 (talk) 17:30, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Aargh, still getting them (might be a caching issue...) Rd232 (talk) 17:33, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Inputboxen mit Vorschau[edit]

Hallo Rillke. Wäre es mit vertretbarem Aufwand möglich, das Framework aus Gadget-AjaxQuickDelete, welches für die Inputboxen inkl. Vorschau verantwortlich ist, auch für die de.wikipedia verfügbar zu machen? Siehe dazu de:BD:Schnark#autoantraege.js. --Leyo 20:27, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Leider habe ich überhaupt keine Ahnung, was Schnark für Boxen nutzt. Wikitext-zum-Parser-schicken ist eigentlich keine große Sache. Inzwischen gibt es dafür sogar mediawiki.api.parse, ein RL-Modul (das aber keiner (außer UploadWizard) nutzt, weil nicht dokumentiert und entwickelt nachdem alle ihre eigenen Lösungen geschrieben haben). So wie es Schnark geht, geht es mir leider auch: Zu viel Arbeit. Abgesehen davon, sind Schnakrs Lösungen immer etwas eleganter. Ich denke nicht, dass ich da mitpfuschen werde. Leider ist DieBuche auch nicht mehr oft hier und selbst simple Forderungen an die Devs werden kategorisch — aus alter Manier — abgelehnt. Lupo hat auch keine Zeit. Macht alles keinen so rechten Spaß.

Help regarding adding a search link and opening search results in a new tab[edit]

I really am useless at Javascript. MediaWiki:Toolbox-search-link.js doesn't work. Neither does the top bit of User:Rd232/common.js (making search results open in a new window). These are really simple things, and I have examples to work from. Bah! Help? Rd232 (talk) 09:53, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Gadget-ImprovedUploadForm oddity[edit]

For some reason it seems to be affecting the formatting of file descriptions: the SVGThumbs script is invoked twice on the pages of SVG files, and the {{information}} formatting also changes once the script is invoked. This doesn't appear to be intended behaviour, since it wasn't doing that before and the thing says it is for the upload form, though, so it's also entirely possible that it might be affecting other things as well.

Now since disabling the ImprovedUploadForm gadget makes it stop doing that and I noticed you moved recently moved that one out of the common.js, would you perhaps have some idea what's going on with this and possibly be able to fix it? Isarra (talk) 20:21, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

{{Duplicate}}[edit]

Could you please check this edit [1] (sorry if you already done that). Now the template requires inputing File: before the duplicated image name. Materialscientist (talk) 00:44, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

VisualFileChange: files remaining[edit]

Hi Rillke. What about adding the progress status in the following way or similar? 347 files processed, 232 remaining. The green/yellow check mark and restart icons are nice, but the overview is missing somehow. --Leyo 16:33, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

✓ Done -- RE rillke questions? 21:43, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
Yes, might be useful. But in general one doesn't have those big batches very often.
BTW, you can increase the number of files to be "loaded with each batch" in the advanced configuration. Then you haven't to scroll down so often. And you don't have to do all work at once. It can crash your browser if you load too many files.
When clicking execute, your last inputs are saved and if you enter the same user/category, script will suggest to continue after the last loaded file from the last time.
VisualFileChange has an own automated clean-up module. It is currently very small and I would be happy to expand it with save, uncontroversial replacements. Clean-up replacements are only done if one of the replacements, the user entered has altered the content.
Thanks for correcting this orthography mistake in the manual. -- RE rillke questions? 17:30, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
When I did the batch custom replace yesterday, I had quite large batches. :-) The gallery-like screen switched up and down, but it was hard to guess the current progress state.
Is it possible to include subcategories? I would like to change the license templates for simple chemical structures (mostly in Category:Chemical structures and subcategories) to {{PD-chem}}. --Leyo 11:09, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
No, that's a technical limitation by the API. Otherwise one would have to do recursive API-calls. -- RE rillke questions? 11:46, 30 March 2012 (UTC)


navpop vs. cat-a-lot[edit]

hi. please review my suggestion here: MediaWiki_talk:Gadget-Cat-a-lot.js#NavPopups. note that in hewiki we modified cat-a-lot significantly, and it is used mainly for "normal" pages categories and not for file categories as it's used here - not sure what this means (e.g., is cat-a-lot doing anything in namespaces other than 14 on commons?)

peace - קיפודנחש (talk) 21:15, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Currently not but perhaps, soon. I don't think the patch is required because, as I already wrote there, cat-A-Lot is now using the link (<a href="this is used if " title=""></a>) to get page title from if the title is set to "" by navPopups. Anyway, thanks for your suggestion. -- RE rillke questions? 21:53, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Rainer, in hindsight, a procedure's critic:
I was a bit naive, 1700 images is an enormous workload. But to ask for two categories, :Category:Unchecked and :Category:Uncategorized was right. After 100 years u have to check what the bot does.
I didn't expect Réginald alias Meneerke bloem to kill :Category:Uncategorized in 48 hours, I didn't expect this miracle ;o)
The :Category:Uncategorized should have red links and links to diambiguation pages. Categorisation "heavy" needs u fresh and in good mood ;)
The :Category:Unchecked should have the existing categories, and the :Category:Category-redirect; and as second option the :Category:"Genus" or even better :Category:Unidentified "Genus" too. This is categorisation "light" ;)
So the :Category:Uncategorized would have less than 100 images and be manageable ;o)
Thx for ur kind n nice work --Chris.urs-o (talk) 10:41, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Invitation to Berlin hackathon, and possible sponsorship[edit]

I invite you to the yearly Berlin hackathon, 1-3 June. Registration is now open. If you need financial assistance or help with visa or hotel, then please register by May 1st and mention it in the registration form.

This is the premier event for the MediaWiki and Wikimedia technical community. We'll be hacking, designing, teaching, and socialising, primarily talking about ResourceLoader and Gadgets (extending functionality with JavaScript), the switch to Lua for templates, Wikidata, and Wikimedia Labs.

We want to bring 100-150 people together, including lots of people who have not attended such events before. User scripts, gadgets, API use, Toolserver, Wikimedia Labs, mobile, structured data, templates -- if you are into any of these things, we want you to come!

I also thought you might want to know about other upcoming events where you can learn more about MediaWiki customization and development, how to best use the web API for bots, and various upcoming features and changes. We'd love to have power users, bot maintainers and writers, and template makers at these events so we can all learn from each other and chat about what needs doing.

Check out the the developers' days preceding Wikimania in July in Washington, DC and our other events.

Best wishes! - Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation's Volunteer Development Coordinator. Please reply on my talk page at mediawiki.org. Sumanah (talk) 21:32, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I forgot to mention the character of that "error" (palmface). Actually, having the review tabs in the toobox is not bad, but the problem is continuity/consistency with previous versions. Once I'm here, I'll tell one more thing (just for feedback - not a request to change). Compared with the ZooFari's script, the advantage of yours (for me) is notifying the user if the license is incompatible with Commons - very handy, especially for admins. The drawback is the pop-up window for flickr reviews suggesting to thank the author (it slows down mass reviewers like me). The majority of uploads from flickr are from "regular" authors (like Eva Rinaldi, whom I won't spam with thanking every one of her thousands of images we copy to Commons), and have no obvious license problems (FOP aside), thus I currently favor ZooFari's script.

Wikisources need a modified version of a Commons gadget[edit]

Gday Rillke. Your hatnote gives me a sense of foreboding, though maybe it is also opportunity when looking at the amazing job that you have been doing with the gadgets around the place more recently [and A BIG THANKS for all the gadget work that you have been doing].

At Commons we have the gadget MediaWiki:Gadget-ThumbnailPurger.js that allows the regeneration of thumbnails, and at the Wikisources there is a great need for that with regard to our use of Extension:ProofreadPage where we occasionally (regularly) have a failure of the thumbnail used for transcription of works, either no image or part of an image. When the thumbnail fails there is no means for WSes to regenerate the thumnail and we have to wait (days?) for the cache image to terminate which is really problematic. From my looking at the gadget here, it isn't readily transferable to enWS, especially with all the underlying componentry with another gadget here. As background, where possible at enWS we usually ResourceLoad gadgets from other sites rather than have second copies of existing tools.

I was wondering whether you would mind having a look at the gadget at Commons, and suggest means that we could use to extract or utilise to get a thumbnail purge function at the Wikisources. Once we have it working at one Wikisource, we would usually share through the others. If you are able to assist that would be marvellous, and any help would be much appreciated.

Random example of an existing transcription page s:en:Page:Science and Citizenship.djvu/15 or for a fresh page via a redlink at s:en:Index:Science and Citizenship.djvu and where we would be looking to push for a new thumbnail, and to make a note that much of this transcription work is on djvu-type files.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:44, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Hello billinghurst,
I have to admit that this is my first experience with Wikisource.
Why not, but please acknoladge that my homewikis are de.wp and Commons. There is enough of workload on Commons.
So here are my first impressions, please correct them if they are wrong:
  • The files (books) are hosted on Commons. (all files?)
  • For File:Science and Citizenship.djvu
    • In (pre)view a 600px (dependent on the window-width)-thumb is loaded (by a JavaScript, namely ext.proofreadpage)
    • While editing, a bigger thumb is shown (1000px) by JavaScript.

Here is what happens when using the commons' gadget:

GET http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php
?title=Special%3AFilePath&file=FILE.EXT&width=800
RESPONSE-HEADERS
Status          301
Cache-Control   private, must-revalidate, max-age=0
Location        //upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/ab/FILE.EXT/800px-FILE.EXT

http://svn.wikimedia.org/viewvc/mediawiki/trunk/phase3/includes/specials/SpecialFilepath.php?revision=112387&view=markup does not allow passing a page-parameter.

$.post('https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/api.php?titles=File:Equiseti%20herba%20178088.jpg&action=purge', 
       '', 
       function() {console.log('this will never happen from wikisource')}
);
  • Cross-site XHRs fail but the request is sent to the server and the server purges, indeed, the thumb.
  • After doing so, we simply increase the file-size by 1px to get a fresh thumb.

If I remember rightly, there was a strange edit conflict, the other edit appeared to be adding a new section and not editing the same section. Anyway, I copied by additions, went back to the full page, clicked on the section edit, re-added my comments and saved (having previously previewed before the edit conflict).

Change of status to translations[edit]

Helo Rillke, I noticed a change of the status to the translations of some languages. For instance, my Macedonian (mk) translation have completely disappeared (and I did all there is to translate) and the red link is showing the alphabetically next language in stead (ml), which isn't done, hence the redness. Well, even if it were, it would lead to the wrong language. Korean shows as all translated, pointing to the Macedonian translations. Kannada points to Korean and so on. But not all languages seem to be affected with this disorder. I checked Commons:Picture of the Year/2011/Translations/table/template but, on the page's history, I can't make out the changes that would have produced this. Any thoughts? --B.

Web site - AbuseFilter rule[edit]

It is a regularly used expression but maybe we should take it out of the filter? Thanks --Herby talk thyme 18:26, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

I don't know. You have fairly more experience in vandal fighting. BTW, thanks for that.
If you can't catch those edits with other filters, it must remain.
But global spam should be combated globally, investigated and prevented. Currently I have the impression we're wasting our time configuring each single wiki. It should be easily possible for me, as Commons admin add an IP or user quickly to a global blacklist, or even more intelligent, the software should ask whether I want to put the IP on a blacklist after I reverted an edit. A small team can then monitor the newly added users/IPs and, if necessary create global AbuseFilter or Antivandalism-Bot rules based on the spam/vandalism the IPs left. Each edit that fits this pattern should be highlighted, then (in watchlist, recent changes, ...) until someone marked it as ok. This just a vision, unfortunately but I think it's time to request such a tool from the WMF. But this is not only a WMF-wide problem. Other freely editable services should join an anti-spam initiative.
Hmm, an Abuse Filter solely based on the edit summary will of course create lots of false positives.
Perhaps it's time for flagged-revs on Commons as we won't get some clever software in the near future.
There are other false-positives: Special:AbuseLog/237508 -- RE rillke questions? 19:23, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
I appreciate the thoughts Rilke and will think about it some more today.
I think global filters will not happen for a bit anyway and few people (on Commons at least) are working in this area of abuse.
The problem is that the pages created are far less predictable than the edit summary - indeed it is usually the edit summary (unless in Russian!) which makes it obvious. Best --Herby talk thyme 07:37, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

hebrew translation of Listfiles-summary - your request in response to my question in the VILAGE PUMP[edit]

Hi Rillke
before completing the translation, i need your advices. At first, the words "When filtered by user" confused me, and this was the reason to my question in the first place. "By" could be understood that the user filtered them, or that they are filtered in accordance to user name. (btw, in Hebrew a different word is used for each "by").
Also, how could be "shows all uploaded files" and then "only files ... are shown"?
Now i understand the whole is:

The list is filtered to show only files that their most recent version was uploaded by this user (in the Username block).

Is that right?
Would it not be desirable to simplify and clarify also the English text?
However, if you think it is better, I can translate the English text as it is and word by word as close as possible.
Eitan f (talk) 13:33, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

.(העלאות שלי) my uploads ב
.(Javascript נדרש) Gallery tool אפשרויות נוספות זמינות ב
Which is translated back to English:
The list includes the last version of all uploaded files . Files that their most recent version was uploaded not by the user, are not presented in "my uploads". More options are available in the Gallery tool (requires Javascript)
Pls correct if necessary. You may notice that I had a lot of truble to arrange the hebrew text which is written from right to left.

Ich habe es gerade mit meinem Computer getestet und die Knöpfe waren nicht ausgegraut. Wie gesagt, ich habe keinen Mac und kann daher nicht umgehend testen.

Dort die Seite ganz normal bearbeiten und exakt das gleiche Format nutzen, wie die anderen Nutzer. -- RE rillke questions? 07:11, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Request for Rollback Rights[edit]

Hallo Rillke, As you are aware, I am a humble user and filemover on Commons, which is why I try to exercise judiciously in the renaming the files on Commons. Recently, there was some problem when a German/Polish user asked for renaming a file terming it as meaningless. This was when the uploader asked me to rollback the file to its original name. Since I could not rollback, I renamed the file to the old name with .jpeg extension instead of .jpg (See User request problem.) I therefore request you to grant me rollback rights for helping other Commons users in situations such as these. Regards and best wishes, Hindustanilanguage (talk) 05:49, 21 June 2012 (UTC).

File moves can't be rolled back using the rollback right. This is a technical limitation. Sorry. -- RE rillke questions? 07:37, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Also at bugzilla:5899 (you firstly pointed me) I noticed no reaction to my comment / hint. Achim1999 (talk) 10:22, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Prompt reactions on Bugzilla are rare and SVG problems are not on the first point at the agenda of the Wikimedia Foundation. We can be happy if we get something like you suggested within 2 years.
You can add your e-Mail to cc in Bugzilla to receive mails when a user touches the bug.
Instead, nice toys like the article feedback wizard or the WYSIWYG-Editor are developed.
Even if there would be volunteers coding SVG improvements it would take some time to get it reviewed by a dev and activated.
Perhaps you could ask users who deal with MW-media handling directly (Bawolff, Bryan) or in IRC (#mediawiki).
Just my experience/thoughts. Regards -- RE rillke questions? 11:09, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Metadata[edit]

right|200px Hallo Rainer, weil es mir auf deutsch leichter fällt kontaktiere ich dich hier und so. Wikimedia kann einige EXIF-Daten anzeigen, aber IMHO sehr wesentliche IPTC-Daten bleiben unsichtbar; erst nach einem Download kann ich sie in Windows ansehen.
Merkwürdigerweise können width & height von SVGs angezeigt werden, was überhaupt keinen Erkennntnisgewinn bringt...
Falls du auch der Meinung sein solltest, dass Titel, Betreff, Kommentar etc. (falls sie versorgt worden sind) auch angezeigt werden sollten, weisst du sicher bei welcher Wikimedia-Instanz diese Erweiterung angeregt werden könnte. Andernfalls versuche ich, das zu formulieren. Gruss, -- sarang사랑.svg사랑 13:48, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

So I created it with Puttalam in it, because this is the correct one. You can prove it very easily. E.g : http://www.tamilnation.co/tamileelam/defacto/index.htm or the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam. BlueLotusLk is probalby personally motivated. You can find some Map with his Version of Tamil Eelam. Link: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Location_Tamil_Eelam_territorial_claim2.png He changes all the Time the map to the other Version. It would be correct so set it back to the Map with Puttalam. Tamil Eelam is a claim that LTTE formed after TULF. I will mention it in the Discussion on this Map. If the Member BluelotusLk is going to change the LTTE Tamil Eelam- Claim all the time with no facts, it is better to delete it or we can ask some TGTE Official to give a statement. The whole text is just for:D you asked me on which fact this Map was designed: http://www.tamilnation.co/tamileelam/defacto/index.htm (you can put it on the page:$ i can't change anything). (I will be offline for a time. Sry dude) --Mugilan (talk) 16:35, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

Template:Rename[edit]

moved back to User talk:GiW#Template:Rename

Question: Template:File renaming reasons/en, Template:File renaming reasons/de etc are uncategorised. Can they be categorised in the usual way (with noinclude), or would that cause problems? Rd232 (talk) 12:45, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Template:File renaming reasons/en and others use onlyinclude so there is no need for noinclude at all one reason why I really like <onlyinclude>. Simply append the category after the closing tag </onlyinclude> (HotCat will automatically do this, I think). If you want to be sure that nothing broke, simply look at {{File renaming reasons/render}} and if it looks like before, you did a good job. Thank you for categorizing the templates. -- RE rillke questions? 20:16, 26 June 2012 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks. Rd232 (talk) 21:07, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Bitte um Antwort[edit]

Hallo Rillke!

Ich möchte Dich bitten, mir im Forum auf meine Frage zu antworten, damit ich mit dem Hochladen irgendwann fertig werde (eigentlich wollte ich um drei Uhr weg ...). Liebe Grüße, --Häferl (talk) 16:07, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Umpf, ich denke das wird sowieso zu schwierig, es sei denn Du kannst mir den FileKey nennen. Ich habe jedenfalls keine Lust stundenlang im Quellcode von UploadWizard nach einer Stelle zu suchen, an der wir ansetzen könnten, um die Dateischlüssel zu extrahieren. Wenn es wirklich große Dateien und sehr viel Arbeit war, melde das einfach auf bugzilla: und fordere, dass sie die Dateien für Dich rüberschieben. Weiß nicht wie lange das geht, aber 1-2 Tage, denke ich, überleben sie im Stash (Zwischenspeicher) bevor sie gelöscht werden. -- RE rillke questions? 16:20, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
Wie finde ich denn den FileKey? ... Hm, aber wenn das pro Bild einer ist, ist der Aufwand insgesamt wohl wirklich nicht viel weniger als die Bilder einzeln neu hochzuladen. Oder ist es nur einer für die Seite? Liebe Grüße, --Häferl (talk) 16:27, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
Einer pro Datei. Und ohne Hilfsmittel wie Firebug ist da gar kein Rankommen. Und selbst dann ist es schwierig, weil ich nach einer Stelle im Code suchen müsste, die es uns erlaubt "den Hochladeassistenten von innen heraus" dazu zu bringen, die Dateischlüssel zu verraten. Ich habe manchmal schon die Konsole genutzt, in der werden die XHRs aufgezeichnet und man sieht den Dateischlüssel. Da aber beim Überprüfen des Dateinamens wahrscheinlich der Schlüssel gar nicht mitgesendet wird, ist das hier nicht möglich. Beschwer' Dich beim Hoster von Commons, der WMF. Sorry, dass ich hier auch nicht mehr tun kann. -- RE rillke questions? 16:37, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
Danke trotzdem. Allerdings muß es ja ein Fehler beim Hochladeassistenten sein, der erst neu hinzugekommen ist - das Hochladen meiner letzten Bilder ging noch problemlos auf demselben Weg (letztes Hochladedatum 25. Juni, 20:25). Liebe Grüße, --Häferl (talk) 17:27, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

MediaWiki talk:Pagetitle[edit]

Hi Rillke,

Hope your break was fine. Would you complete the a/m request? Neither your comment on COM:AN nor mine suggesting implementing this COM:VP seem to have met any disagreement other than some guy in the wrong forum, thus I think it would help setting this up on a temporary basis. The problem with had on VP is that people weren't exactly sure about the visual result. Once done, I will re-open the discussion on VP. --  Docu  at 12:01, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Hello Docu, as I wrote on the talk page containing your edit request, I won't do this. Please asked one of the administrators who commented in the thread on COM:VP. I am currently not in the mood for a controversial discussion. Regards -- RE rillke questions? 12:33, 30 June 2012 (UTC)
Rainer,
Your cookie-licking approach on this is a bit annoying.
Everybody waited for a week as you asked them to wait and said you would be doing it afterwards. Then you just vanish from Commons, worse the thread got archived as we waited for you. --  Docu  at 08:02, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
I think it was just you. I apologize again for the confusion. Ask someone else, please. -- RE rillke questions? 15:22, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hello Rillke, thank you very much!! Thank you for helping me with this problem. I will ask help for someone, when I have a doubt. Another question, I can use #REDIRECT [[User:Lucas Secret]] in my other page "User:Lucas Brígido" or does not need? --Lucas Secret (talk) 13:00, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Yes, you can redirect your old user account's page and talk page to the new one. -- RE rillke questions? 13:04, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

User:DrTrigonBot supporting javascript[edit]

Hello Rillke!

First thanks for all your support and hints in Commons:Bots/Requests/DrTrigonBot!! "Was lange währt..." usw. ;)

Now back to bussiness; to be honest I did not have time to introduce systematic label names and look into this - but that is what I will do next! ;) Did you have time to look into improving the javascript in order to support all templates including 'Position' data (Faces, People, ColorRegion, ...)? What about config options in order to choose what to show? Do you require me to fix the label names first? (despite the fact that it would be the proper order ;)

Some examples including 'People': File:APEX you at one of their Saturday cook outs.jpg, File:06award1.jpg

Thanks and greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 15:34, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I hope you don't mind if I copy this to User talk:DrTrigonBot/JavaScript because I expect perhaps more conversation about this topic? Also this might be better for the future when people are looking for why the JavaScript works this way. If you don't like it there, just move. -- RE rillke questions? 15:40, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
No problem; feel free to move! (btw.: this is actually a brilliant idea! ;) We can still move it again later if needed...
Another (small) question; what about an illegal number of eyes, e.g. File:Azimov.jpg (I will implement a duplicate recognition later, but that since those hits are very rare, this is not my top priority... as mentioned before ;) Greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 15:45, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

User:DrTrigonBot more template magic[edit]

Hello Rillke!

A question regarding the "template magic" you mentioned once. I am experimenting with this now, please confer User:DrTrigon/sandbox#More_template_magic. I'd like to:

  1. crop the image
  2. then resize/rescale the result to a given size (width or height)

...have a look at the very last example. But even google was not able to help me out... Scaling is always done in the img-tag (or wiki media link) and cannot be done after cropping. So you are my last hope (since you brought this topic up ;) ... Do you have any idea on how to achieve this? Any hint is very wellcome! Thanks and greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 15:46, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

You have to first scale the image and then crop it (logically). Scaling can be done either
  1. Requesting a different size from the server: [[File:2011-2012 SUSU Officers Notice Board.jpg|{{#expr: <calculation here> round 0 }}px]]
  2. Using CSS (you need a css file for this) to fit into the outer container: We have on example in MediaWiki:Common.css. Look for #mainpage-potd a img. If you assign mainpage-potd as ID to an outer div, the image will fit in width to that div. (Note that IDs should be unique ...)
Does this help or should I suggest something specific? (So I'll have to think about for a while) -- RE rillke questions? 21:25, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer but the point is; I want do it in the order I proposed, since that allows me to use the face coordinates the bot returns (without doing any math or having the bot output some other rescaled values in addition) and after cropping the faces rescale the resulting image... I think this is not possible by using css alone and would need some javascript too, but that is not exactly what I want... ;) Thanks for your answer anyway!! :)) Greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 21:55, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
Could you take a look at User:DrTrigon/sandbox#New_test_01? This is as you suggested and close to what I need, but the value 2592 is the original image width which should be avoided... Do you have any idea? A very simple javascript (that can directly be included) would be ok too... but without javascript is still preferred... ;) Thanks and greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 22:53, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
btw.: what about User talk:DrTrigonBot/JavaScript...? ;) Greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 22:56, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
I was able to solve it by writing my first javascript for wikipedia! ;) May be you could take a look at this too and give me some hints what I did wrong and how I could improve the code...? While doing this I came up with an old question: Why do we have to include the image width and height? In my script I was able to get those values in the code, all I had to do was include the image... Would this be a possible way to solve this in MediaWiki:FileContentsByBot.js too? I undid my changes since I was not shure on how stable the solution is, it needs additional javascript to see the icons and last bo not least they are very small and I am not sure if they are of any use at all, since you did such a great job...!? ;))) Greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 16:15, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Entfernung der Fettschrift in der Beobachtungsliste[edit]

Hast du eine Ahnung, wie ich User:A.Savin/monobook.css ändern könnte, damit neue Änderungen in der Beobachtung nicht fett angezeigt werden? Merci - A.Savin 19:51, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Weiß zwar nicht, warum Du das Feature nicht magst, aber die folgenden Zeile sollte helfen, wenn Du nicht irgendwo invalides CSS davor hast (kann auch von gadgets u.a. scripts kommen). Einfache Beobachtungsliste:
.mw-special-Watchlist .mw-changeslist-line-watched .mw-title { font-weight:normal !important; }
Für die erweiterte Beo brauchst Du
.mw-special-Watchlist .mw-watched { font-weight:normal !important; }

BTW. I extended the script so I can operate on my contributions (e.g. when I mess up and want to revert/fix changes). The changed files are User:Nux/VisualFileChange.js and User:Nux/VisualFileChange.js/ui.js. I tried to do the new functionality with as minimal changes/effort as possible so I guess you could integrate those changes better. --Nux (talk··dyskusja) 01:14, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Wow, a barnstar and a fork, thanks!
