This page is not updating? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:03, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

The database servers on labs are currently highly slow, including a replication lag. --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:23, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
Nine days behind? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:19, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
No, But actually the query runs forever. WMF bought new servers, we have to wait until they are deployed. Multiple scripts/tool affected. --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:53, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
@Magog the Ogre: *moved* to the new faster labs servers, should work now. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:20, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Wir freuen uns auf deine Fotos von Bau- und Kulturdenkmalen! Wie du mitmachen kannst erfährst du auf unserer Mitmach-Seite, bei Fragen und Problemen kannst du dich auf unserer Support-Seite melden.

ImgOps: image operations[edit]

Hello Steinsplitter, how are you?

I sometimes use the link above, as it provides a big number of links to other interesting tools regarding images informations, hidden data, reverse searches and mores.... I have modified my User:Christian Ferrer/common.js to have a link in a TAB in the images pages, and that works well, exemple File:CAPTAIN BADR (ship, 1978). Sète cf01.jpg from a link in a tab of the file page I go to directly to [1], and that gives a lot of possibilities. Do you think it worth to create a "MediaWiki:" page such thing to make that available to other users? Christian Ferrer (talk) 20:12, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Though I have an issue as the code give a link to a thumb, I must have another look.. Christian Ferrer (talk) 20:16, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
Done, I created a second link, now I have one for the full resolution, useful to keep EXIFs and datas, and one link for the 300px thumb, useful for reverse searches. Christian Ferrer (talk) 20:41, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Image rotation and rotation display bug[edit]

Hi Steinsplitter, please be careful with User:SteinsplitterBot rotations. Some images are displayed incorrectly - eg. File:Prague 1, Czech Republic - panoramio (278).jpg is displayed correctly in the small thumb in the category, but appears to be rotated in the big thumb at the file page. Some display bug is occuring and some rotation requests can be influenced by it. --ŠJů (talk) 22:34, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

@ŠJů: Hi, Looks OK for me, please clear your browser cache :). --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:39, 28 September 2017 (UTC)
The problem was discussed at Commons:Village pump#Rotation display bug (section September 27). --ŠJů (talk) 19:51, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

SteinsplitterBot / Custom license marker template[edit]

SteinsplitterBot is removing the {{Custom license marker}} template from images with the comment "Removing deprecated template". This template was added to a upload of mine as recent as . Has the upload wizard been edited since then to remove the use of this template? If not wanted to make sure you were aware the template is still being added by the uploadwizard. - Offnfopt(talk) 12:51, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi @Offnfopt: It is not used/it was never used and i is (since today) no longer added to new upload's. It serves no purpose, just junk which is confusing users. I forgot that one to add to the upwiz cleanup stuff. Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:11, 1 October 2017 (UTC)
Ok thanks, just wanted to make sure it wasn't still being added. - Offnfopt(talk) 13:45, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

EN:WP -> Commons[edit]

Moin Steinsplitter,
hast Du eine Ahnung, wie man dieses Bild nach Commons rüberkriegt? Ich kenn mich damit leider gar nicht aus.
Vielen Dank und viele Grüße, Grueslayer (talk) 19:35, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi Steinsplitter, I would like to translate into Marathi (mr) language. Please assist with the same.--✝iѵɛɳ२२४०†ลℓк †๏ мэ 10:52, 3 October 2017 (UTC)

SteinsplitterBot not rotating[edit]

In case you're not already aware, SteinsplitterBot stopped rotating files a day and a half ago. --bjh21 (talk) 12:21, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

File:Nominate category for discussion en.jpg[edit]

Commons-emblem-issue.svg File:Nominate category for discussion en.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Shiekh Shoes at Westminster Mall receipt (2002-06-19).jpg[edit]

It's not in use at enWP any more. --Randykitty (talk) 08:08, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

You removed it just now. --Steinsplitter (talk) 08:09, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Yes, I did. That was a completely unnecessary addition to that article. --Randykitty (talk) 08:10, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
The please file a new deletion request, if it remains unused fore one week it may be deleted. --Steinsplitter (talk) 08:11, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Sjeez, this is tiresome. It was only added to that article (and earlier to another one) to keep it here, who knows why. It's just a crumpled receipt, what encyclopedic use is that? I'm not going to file another deletion request just to have it added frivolously to yet another article on enWP. Sorry to have bothered you. --Randykitty (talk) 08:15, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

High street thumb nail.[edit]

Hello there. Just a quick note about your thumbnail of Ashford high street. I have lived here my whole life and thought you would like to know that this picture is of an area known as middle row. It runs adjacent to the high street.

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Litfaßsäule (Hamburg-Rotherbaum).18675.2.ajb.jpg[edit]

Hallo Steinsplitter, könntest Du bitte die erste Version wieder sichtbar machen? In Übereinstimmung mit MagentaGreen kann ich die von Leyo behauptete Copyright-Verletzung nicht nachvollziehen. Insofern würde ich eigentlich gerne die unverpixelte Version wieder herstellen. Siehe hierzu auch die ausführlichere Diskussion/Begründung hier. Vielen Dank! --Ajepbah (talk) 12:18, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

Dem schließe ich mich an. Im Übrigen ist es sicher, dass einige der Plakate keinesfalls Schöpfungshöhe erreichen, über den Rest kann man diskutieren, die Verpixelung in Bausch und Bogen ist aber bestimmt nicht notwendig. MagentaGreen (talk) 12:27, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
@Ajepbah, MagentaGreen: Schöpfungshöhe ist für die mehr zahl der gezeigten Werbung zu bejahen, daher muss die ursprüngliche Datei gelöscht bleiben. lg --Steinsplitter (talk) 12:50, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Die Schöpfungshöhe ist hier m. E. nebensächlich. Die einzelnen Plakate sind Beiwerk und im Übrigen für ihre Lebensdauer der Öffentlichkeit gewidmet (vgl. BGH-Urteil zur Reichtagsverhüllung). Ihr wollt doch wohl nicht allen Ernstes verlangen, dass alle Werbeplakate auf Commons verpixelt werden?!? Zumal ich Werbung bisher immer so verstanden habe, dass eine Weiterverbreiung eigentlich im Sinne des Werbenden sein müsste ... --Ajepbah (talk) 13:17, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
@Ajepbah: IMHO kein Beiwerk und das genannte Urteil ist nicht wirklich für den Fall anwendbar. Wenn du trotzdem denkst, das Foto hätte nicht gelöscht werden dürfen, kannst du einen Antrag bei der Löschprüffug stellen. Lg --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:37, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

Files proposed for deletion[edit]

I noticed that you have put several files loaded by me for deletion. All the files proposed for elimination have been given to me by Companhia Vidas from A to Z, so that the same images appear on facebook and on the official website of the same, as in other websites. Some photographs were taken by me and others rights were transferred to the company that authorized me to use them, and I already sent the email to the permissions with the transfer of rights of the images to me by the Company, but no one answered to the email that I sent with permission to use images to nor did they place the OTRS.

I would appreciate it if you did not delete the files, since the process is delayed or you should check the permissions email and verify that the image use authorization was indeed given.

Link of files concerned:

Thankful. Sílvia Gomes (talk)

@Sílvia Gomes: If you have send a valid permission, the files will be restored once the permission has been processed. Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:02, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

Welcome to the Structured Commons focus group![edit]

Hello! Thank you very much for signing up to the community focus group for Structured Commons :-)

How to organize ourselves?

This focus group is new and experimental, and I welcome your tips and thoughts on how we can organize this in the most convenient and productive way. For now, I have posted a few separate topics on the focus group's talk page. Please add your questions there too! If we all add that page to our watchlist, that's probably a good way to stay up to date with current discussions. Steinsplitter has also initiated a brand new IRC channel specifically for Structured Commons: wikimedia-commons-sd (webchat) which we invite you to join. Please let me know if you have other ideas on how to work together.

Audience at Structured Commons design discussion, Wikimania 2017
Team updates
The Structured Commons team at Wikimania 2017

Two new people have been hired for the Structured Data on Commons team. We are now complete! :-)

  • Ramsey Isler is the new Product Manager of the Multimedia team.
  • Pamela Drouin was hired as User Interface Designer. She works at the Multimedia team as well, and her work will focus on the Structured Commons project.
Partners and allies
  • We are still welcoming (more) staff from GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) to become part of our long-term focus group (phabricator task T174134). You will be kept in the loop of the project, and receive regular small surveys and requests for feedback. Get in touch with Sandra if you're interested - your input in helping to shape this project is highly valued!

Design research is ongoing.

  • Jonathan Morgan and Niharika Ved have held interviews with various GLAM staff about their batch upload workflows and will finish and report on these in this quarter. (phabricator task T159495)
  • At this moment, there is also an online survey for GLAM staff, Wikimedians in Residence, and GLAM volunteers who upload media collections to Wikimedia Commons. The results will be used to understand how we can improve this experience. (phabricator task T175188)
  • Upcoming: interviews with Wikimedia volunteers who curate media on Commons (including tool developers), talking about activities and workflows. (phabricator task T175185)

In Autumn 2017, the Structured Commons development team works on the following major tasks (see also the quarterly goals for the team):

  • Getting Multi-Content Revisions sufficiently ready, so that the Multimedia and Search Platform teams can start using it to test and prototype things.
  • Determine metrics and metrics baseline for Commons (phabricator task T174519).
  • The multimedia team at WMF is gaining expertise in Wikibase, and unblocking further development for Structured Commons, by completing the MediaInfo extension for Wikibase.
Stay up to date!

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Hector[edit]

Hi, There was no reason to delete these files. Images by Agence Rol are OK: Creator:Agence Rol. Could you please restore them? Regards, Yann (talk) 21:56, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Please don't restore them. There is no information to support that the authors have died before 1947. Jcb (talk) 22:05, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
Jcb: The photographer is not named, so the copyright belongs to the company and expired 70 years after publication. You should know better... Regards, Yann (talk) 10:54, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
There is no indication that there has not e.g. been an earlier publication, with the name of the photographer mentioned. Jcb (talk) 12:43, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
Agence Rol is photo agency. The images are under a public domain mention on the source. There is really no issue here. Why do you make things so complicated? Regards, Yann (talk) 14:02, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
Nothing was complicated in this case until you got involved. Clear nomination, logical closure based on established policy, nothing out of the ordinary. Jcb (talk) 15:41, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
Hi, I restored the files after comments by other users on COM:UDEL. Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:49, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Rückfrage bezüglich Löschung von Wartungskategorien[edit]

Hallo Steinsplitter,
mir ist aufgefallen dass nachstehende, von dir erstellte Wartungskategorien gelöscht wurden, weil sie leer waren. Frage: Sind diese wirklich nicht mehr notwendig gewesen, oder sind es Kategorien, die in Zukunft wieder andere Medien enthalten werden? Bitte wirf einen Blick darauf und stelle die Kats bei Bedarf wieder her. Danke!

Hi! I need some help with the BSicons that were recently moved to wikimedia commons. The pages are there but none of the icons are showing up on the page? Is there a problem with the templates? Best regards. (Central Data Bank (talk) 19:33, 31 October 2017 (UTC))

Hi, Pinging @Jc86035: :-) --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:42, 31 October 2017 (UTC)
@Central Data Bank: As always, try clearing your cache. Which icons in particular? If there is a problem with those files' rendering then I can reupload them. Jc86035 (talk) 06:09, 3 November 2017 (UTC)


Hello, I see you're a bureaucrat on beta. I was wondering if you can give me access to GLAMToolset. I have a ton of archived stuff that I plan on uploading to Commons. Thus, I prefer to upload and try the on the beta cluster before requesting the real flag. Thanks. Artix Kreiger (talk) 18:23, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi, GWT is for uploading files from a url (related to GLAM stuff). Which files you want to upload? --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:38, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

these files. The files are available online near the bottom. Artix Kreiger (talk) 18:42, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

I am not really sure if they are relevant to commons (project scope), maybe someone experienced with glam/GWT can comment (@:). --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:47, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
What about this group? Artix Kreiger (talk) 19:19, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
Soweit ich weiss ist IBarr dran. Habe gerade auf seiner Disku nachgefragt. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 00:27, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
Update: IBarr started a batch upload req. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:25, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
@Artix Kreiger: Immediately stop forum shopping 1, 2, 3, 4. The conversation above confirms that you don't need the tool. Needles to say that as per your conversation with Hedwig (on Hedwig's talkape) you know that the job is being done by IBarr. This kind of behavior is really concerning. --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:38, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Important question[edit]

Hi Steinsplitter, Hope you have been well. I have a question in regards with Flickr files that I upload. You have previously blocked me for uploading files, more specifically last year. I asked Elisfkc if I could overwrite my own files that I upload.

Does this apply also to Flickr files and other files that I upload, not other user's uploaded files.

Say for example File:Rolls Royce Dawn 2016.jpg which was uploaded by me, not any other user, but belongs to another flickr user, could I overwrite this file. Could you please fully explain what files am I permitted to crop. Thanks for your assistance --Nim Bhharathhan (talk) 09:42, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Please follow COM:OVERWRITE. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:48, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Africa[edit]

In English (lire en français plus bas)

Thank you for your contribution to Wiki Loves Africa 2017


The project is a celebration of the visual diversity of Africa on Wikipedia and its sister projects. There are several fun ways you can help us to make the impact of Wiki Loves Africa stronger:

  • Add more categories to your images so that people will find them to use them in articles ... you can see how to do this here: Quick Guide to Categories on Commons
  • Add your image to a relevant Wikipedia article, i.e. if your image shows a tailor sewing, then add the image to an article on Sewing or Tailors - this allows readers to see different global perspectives of a universal subject. You can see how to do this here: How to insert images into Wikipedia using WikiText
  • Improve the images description to make them easier to understand and reuse.
  • If there is no article that reflects the subject of your images, then start an article about that subject. If you are a new editor, you can see how to do that here: Creating your first article
  • Add more images - you can add more images or media that reflect interesting and encyclopedic subjects in your immediate community.
  • Become involved in (or start) your local Wikimedia community groups - it is a lot of fun, and is important! Find the existing groups here: Wikimedia groups across Africa

We look forward to seeing your contributions!!


Anthere for the Wiki Loves Africa Team

Commons:Undeletion requests[edit]

Good evening User: Steinsplitter I wrote to ask you if by chance you were able to recover the files you find at this link [2]

thank you and good evening -- 19:11, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

Jump in a lake, vandal. You are getting nowhere here anymore. Every single timme you write a request, several admins will know about it in no time. Big Brother is watching you. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 21:27, 10 November 2017 (UTC)


Why did you delete a photo that had been ok'ed and linked from several places? Please undo this, this is ridiculous! Taco Fleur (talk)

Please provide a link to the file in question. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:25, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
Don't do this again. If you think the file are not violating COM:L please fiel a undeletion request, i think you have to send a written permission to COM:OTRS in this case. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:32, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

you think I have sent a request? it was pretty clear the request was sent and approved. Please undo your mistake. Taco Fleur (talk)

Furthermore, I've had plenty of conversations now, explaining I'm in the photos and make the photos, if you would have taken the time to check my user page out you would have seen all this. Here — Preceding unsigned comment added by Taco fleur (talk • contribs) 20:00, 10 November 2017 (UTC)


I have no idea how this works with talk/questions etc. but so far I don't understand the communication. Can you tell me why you deleted a perfectly good photo in two places?

Hi Steinsplitter, habe neuerdings das Problem, dass wenn ich zu einem von mir beobachteten Bild Image notes hinzufüge, das Bild dabei unvermittelt aus meiner Beobachtungsliste geworfen wird. WTF?? Kannst du vllt. helfen, wie man das abstellt? Gruß --A.Savin 19:31, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Seltsam. Ist das erst neu? In Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-watchlist alles richtig eingestellt? --Steinsplitter (talk) 12:17, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Genau, das ist erst neu (hatte vor ein paar Monaten zu einem meiner Fotos Notes hinzugefügt und das kam nicht vor). In den Einstellungen ist aktiviert (und das war schon immer so), dass meine eigenen Edits ausgeblendet sind und dass neu erstellte Seiten und hochgeladene Dateien zur Watchlist hinzugefügt werden. --A.Savin 14:01, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Habe es soeben getestet, stimmt! Das sollte nicht sein, habe aber keinen Abschnitt im Code gefunden welcher die Watchlist direkt beeinflusst. @Zhuyifei1999: Any idea why ImageAnnotator is removing files from the watchlist? I looked into the code, but was unable to find a watchlist param in the page itself and in the api subpage of the script. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:39, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Could you provide some steps to reproduce the issue? I can't read German :P --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 16:28, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
If you have a file on your watchlist yet, and you add a annotation to the image using the aforementioned tool, then the page will be removed from you'r watchlst. The edit shouldn't change the watchlist setting for the edited file. --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:15, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes and that's going on since few weeks or so. On 13 August I hadn't the problem yet, that's for sure. --A.Savin 01:36, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
Image notes doesn't use the API?! It did an edit via a POST to as if 'Watch this page' is not checked and unspecified. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 17:35, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

Files rotation by SteinsplitterBot[edit]

Is everything OK with it? I'm looking some files rotated by bot, and it seems that something went wrong with rotation. (3 random examples: File:Bjelovar Cathedral2.jpg, File:Rovisce raspelo.jpg, File:Crkva Presvetog Trojstva Rovisce.jpg.--MaGa 18:55, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

Nope, you have to wait a few hours (or days) :/. This problem must be resolved upstream. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:28, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

Unusual sights of nature[edit]

Thanks for closing Commons:Categories for discussion/2016/05/Category:Unusual sights of nature in New Brunswick.

Löschung zweier Fotos von Ulrich Sild[edit]

Lieber Steinsplitter, ich vermisse zwei Fotos, die User Wereldnieuws einmal bei Wikimedia Commons hochgeladen hatte. Wie ich anhand der Versionsgeschichte sehe, hast Du sie heute gelöscht. Wenn Du Dir den unlogischen Löschantrag ansiehst, der besagt, es seien Fotos unbekannter Urheber zu löschen (das träfe auf eine Vielzahl von WP-Fotos zu), und zusätzlich berücksichtigst, dass bei beiden Fotos der Urheber mit Lebensdaten († 1937, also seit 80 Jahren verstorben) angegeben war, würde ich Dich freundlichst bitten, die beiden Fotos wiederherzustellen. Danke! Hier die Details:

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by AlexanderHovanec[edit]

Hi, I noticed you closed the above linked request, but only deleted two of the listed images (that’s probably my fault—I started two batch deletion requests around the same time). Could you rule on the remaining images as well? Thanks. Ytoyoda (talk) 13:11, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

Images uploaded by LIUC1Timothesus[edit]

Hi, we are creating a Wikipedia page for a school project. We noticed that you have deleted some of our pictures due to missing informations. Do you have any suggestions of how we can resolve the problem? --G1ulvia (talk) 14:02, 29 November 2017 (UTC)G1ulvia

Hi, Your account has no deleted files/edits. Please provide a link to the files in question. Thanks. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:09, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
I believe they mean these files. @G1ulvia: for old photos, and other files where you do not have the copyright to the original, you must show why it is out of copyright. In much of the world, a work falls out of copyright 70 years after the death of the creator, so we need to know where they were originally published, who created them, and when did those original photographers/artists die. Storkk (talk) 14:23, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
This is the link: Thank you for the help.--G1ulvia (talk) 14:40, 29 November 2017 (UTC)G1ulvia
We uploaded the pictures again and we provided further copyright information. Our pictures are from a book, the author of this book has provided us signed permission to publish the image on wikipedia. Please let us know what copyright category we should classify this one under? --LIUC1Timothesus (talk) 17:32, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
The file is from 1988-01-07 or 1860-1861? cc-by-sa-4.0 unlikely. --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:06, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
The files were taken from a book written in 1988 and the author of this book is alive and wrote a signed permission letter. The pictures were taken in the 1860s but we do not have information about the actual author of the pictures. Therefore should we classify it under "The author died more than 70 years ago" or as non-free content? Thank you for your help, but our page should be submitted for tomorrow as a school deadline.--G1ulvia (talk) 09:35, 1 December 2017 (UTC)
Please file a COM:UDEL request, i can't verify if they are really so old. --Steinsplitter (talk) 09:40, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Extended uploaders[edit]

Hi Steinsplitter, Over at Commons:Extended uploaders it said "'''Extended uploaders''' is a special [[<tvar|mw1>:mw:Special:MyLangauge/Help:User rights and groups</>|user group]] for registered Commons users",
However when I clicked on "user group" it took me to a MW page however it says "No such special page" so I removed the "Special:MyLangauge/" part however I'm not sure if this was the correct thing to do so figured I'd leave a message incase you might understand it all and can perhaps fix it,
Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 17:15, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Moin Steinsplitter,
hin und wieder gibt es Probleme mit Leuten, die copyrighted Bilder zu Trinidad und Tobago hochladen. Ich habe mal irgendwo aufgeschnappt, dass das immer derselbe Typ ist. Meistens konnte ich ziemlich einfach eine Copyvio anhand der Fundorte via Google Images nachweisen. Ich glaube, er ist wieder da, und diesmal etwas geschickter: Videoscreenshots, meist von GoPro- oder Phantom-Dronen-Aufnahmen. Die finde ich nicht so leicht. Geht um User:RajkumarBhola1952, und ein Bild habe ich jetzt gefunden: File:Navetdamctt.jpg ist ein nachbearbeiteter Screenshot aus wo er die Farben verändert, aber das Wasserzeichen unten rechts vergessen hat.
Was macht man in solchen Fällen? In eindeutigen Fällen stelle ich einen Löschantrag auf ein Bild. Hier gehe ich davon aus, dass alle Bilder (mal wieder) geklaut sind, bin aber unerfahren und unsicher, wie da mit der Beweislast verfahren wird. Was hältst Du für die richtige Vorgehensweise?
Vielen Dank und viele Grüße, Grueslayer (talk) 07:06, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

I wish to upload to Wikimedia a map/plan/diagram published by "L'Illustration" magazine in 1914 - does it still hold a copyright?[edit]

Hello. I was told by User=Jcb to contact OTRS on this matter. I wish to upload (to Wikimedia) a photo of a map/plan/diagram that was originally published by "L'Illustration" in 1914, with a few colored lines added by me, so as to highlight portions of it, in order to better explain the military actions that took place, as described by my text in the article - in which I basically comment and expand on that map/plan/diagram.


Re: PLANO_FRANCES_-_Pasquel,_Rev_Jarocha,_Abr-1966,_p30_Prairie_en_amarillo,_Florida_y_Utah_en_rojo.jpg

I am under the impression that, after 103 years, there is no longer a copyright.

Please advise me on how to proceed. Thanks. --Wkboonec (talk) 15:01, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

As I already told you, copyright lasts 70 years after the death of the author in France. So your impression is incorrect. Jcb (talk) 15:15, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

What?! Boy, am I surprised!!! I was trying to follow your indications: I thought that I would be communicating on this "channel" with OTRS. As long as you are here: ... Never mind. Cheers, --Wkboonec (talk) 15:43, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

Hello! You are receiving this message because you signed up for the community focus group for Structured Commons :-)

Later this week, a full newsletter will be distributed, but you are the first to receive an update on new requests for feedback.

Three requests for feedback
  1. We received many additions to the spreadsheet that collects important Commons and Wikidata tools. Thank you! Now, you can participate in a survey that helps us understand and prioritize which tools and functionalities are most important for the Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata communities. The survey runs until December 22. Here's some background.
  2. Help the team decide on better names for 'captions' and 'descriptions'. You can provide input until January 3, 2018.
  3. Help collect interesting Commons files, to prepare for the data modelling challenges ahead! Continuous input is welcome there.

Caricamento Video per la WIKI SCIENCE COMPETITION 2017 (entro il 15 Dicembre)[edit]


sto provando a caricare da un paio di giorni il video che abbiamo scelto per partecipare alla WIKI SCIENCE COMPETITION 2017 nella categoria "multimedia". Purtroppo il sistema continua a bloccare l'upload dei file sia in formato webm che ogg. Ho parlato con Bodhan Melnychuk e Nicolas Tamargo (non riesco a contattare il sig. Alessandro Marchetti) che mi hanno consigliato di parlare con gli admin per disattivare (a quanto pare) questi filtri che bloccano la procedura. Come da oggetto, l'invio del file per partecipare al contest deve essere effettuato entro il 15 Dicembre. Resto in attesa di un suo cortese riscontro. La ringrazio anticipatamente.

Cordiali saluti

Cyclamen from Adélaïde Verneuil de Marval deleted[edit]

Hi, You had the file "Cyclamen" by Adélaïde Verneuil de Marval deleted in December 2017. My question is: I took the picture myself since I am the owner of this work, which hangs in my house. The painter also named me as one of her heirs in her testament. I wanted to have this picture in wikipedia because this artist remained quite unknown, in the shadow of her husband Maurice Pillard Verneuil. And since she had no children and no descendants - her only sister died in the 1940th - the only mean to show her work is probably through the internet. Why I am not allowed to publish this picture is not clear for me since as said: 1. It is in my possession, it was as many other pictures given to me by the artist herself 2. I was one of her heirs (still have the documents) 3. A. Verneuil de Marval never had children and left no descendants, so no one who will remember her 70 years after her death...

Frage zu Dateiweiterleitung beim Verschieben[edit]

Hallo Steinsplitter, seit kurzem darf ich Dateien verschieben. Oft sind diese noch nicht in Nutzung und dann scheint mir eine Weiterleitung nicht erforderlich. Üblicherweis verwende ich {{speedy|error in name}}, und dann müssen andere die Arbeit machen und aufräumen. Natürlich müssten Verweise auf genutzte Dateien in der entsprechenden Seite umbenannt werden. Kann ich Weiterleitung auf ungenutzte Namen vermeiden (wie ?). Und ist "convert to DR" hilfreicher oder ggf. exakter als die genannte Vorlage? Danke, viele Grüße Wilhelm Zimmerling PAR (talk) 23:48, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

SteinsplitterBot - dates 188-[edit]

Hallo Steinplitter, zufällig bin ich auf die folgende Änderung deines Bots gestoßen: [4]. Soweit ich das sehe ist hier der Bindestrich teil des ungefähren Datums. Deshalb finde ich eine Anpassung dieser Art angebrachter: [5] Insgesamt glaube ich dass das ganze ziemlich speziell ist und soweit ich diese finden konnte habe ich alle anderen derartigen Änderungen deines Bots korrigiert. Grüße, --Schlurcher (talk) 06:28, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Hallo & Danke, Bist du sicher? s schreibt das Jahre, und circa könnte auch kurz davor sein. Der strick ist nicht übriggebliebener junk? Ich werde es dann entsprechend anpasse. lg --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:40, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
Hallo, den Strich gab es schon auf der Originalseite (und dort auch nur bei diesen Bilder); demnach ist es fair anzunehmen, dass er etwas bedeuten soll. Alle bestreffenden Bilder, die ich finden konnte sind stereoscopische Aufnahmen. Deshalb müssen diese zwangsläufig später als 1800 entstanden sein. Ich stimme dir zu, dass diese auch kurz vor der angegebenen Zeit entstanden sein könnten, was bei meiner Änderung verloren gegangen ist. Ich habe es deshalb alle nochmals angespasst: z.B. [6]. Mein Code ist hier [7]. Wichtig ist hier auch der Umbruch am Ende, sonst läuft bei ca. 188-02 (circa Februar 188) alles aus dem Ruder. Viele Grüße --Schlurcher (talk) 05:17, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

I think the better solution in this case would be to get an admin to move the category page to the correctly spelled title, and perhaps delete the misspelled one. --R'n'B (talk) 12:33, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

Done. --Steinsplitter (talk) 12:39, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

Commons:WikiProject Council[edit]

Hi, I'm trying to create a WikiProject about the Spanish Civil War and already submitted it on the page. When and how could the creation of the project take place? Thanks from advance. --Macesito (talk) 19:53, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

@Macesito: The "Council" is not active currently, so you can simply proceed with the creation imho. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:38, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
@Steinsplitter: Ok, great. Thank you very much! --Macesito (talk) 11:39, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Abuse filter/Error reporting[edit]

Steinsplitter, you reported issues with Commons:Abuse filter/Error reporting can you give me some code snippet that demonstrates the issue? --Jarekt (talk) 21:00, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

@Jarekt: I told that autotranslate is not working in Commons: namespace. It is not only related to this page. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:34, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
Hm... It works now! I suspect there was some sort of caching issue with the lua module, it works now. Bot parser only and module. So never mind and thanks anyway. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:36, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Patroler Question[edit]

I've asked another admin this but I still wasn't sure so I thought I'd ask someone who I believe is known for good vandal fighting. Once an IP has been reported/delt with and the vandalism has been reverted already is it appropriate to patrol the edits if it isn't already patrolled? I try to keep as much of a handle on anonymous IP vandalism as one person can and I am curious what would the appropriate way to deal with this? I already patrol the edits of a someone doing vandalism before I would revert/correct/restore but I don't know how to handle someone who has had an admin action against them. The case of made this issue shown to me. Thank you for your time. -- Sixflashphoto (talk) 18:32, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Reviewed edits should be always marked as patrolled so they no longer pop up at the queue (You may find the CVN page helpful: COM:CVN#Read_me). Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:46, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the quick response and direct answer. This was just a new situation with an IP that an admin had already blocked and I didn't want to step on anyone's toes. Thank you very much again. -- Sixflashphoto (talk) 18:48, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
Since I have your attention and this is something I do while you are much better at it, is there a specific trick or way you use to find and fight vandalism? You would be the person to ask, and this is something I want, even enjoy, doing to help the project. I've been doing it for a bit, long enough to know that there must be a better way. Recent changes and the RTRC only help so much unless, go back so far, is there is a trick to configuring them? So any suggestions would be most welcome. Thank you again, -- Sixflashphoto (talk) 19:17, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
There is no real tool. Watching abusefilter logs may be helpful, and adding widely used files to the watchlist. --Steinsplitter (talk) 12:05, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
