Bots[edit]


You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2015-June/081931.html This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including mediawiki.org) on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allpages ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.

Seattle Times[edit]

Can you explain why you removed Category:Seattle Times from File:Seattle Daily Times - big press - 1900.jpg and various other related files? Your summary gives no explanation, just says you are removing it with HotCat. - Jmabel ! talk 05:52, 8 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Hi there — I removed it from files categorized under Category:Seattle and the Orient because that category is already a subcategory of Category:Seattle Times. — WFinch (talk) 14:50, 8 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Ah; I'll revert my edits of the files specific to the staff and operation of the Seattle Times newspaper. — WFinch (talk) 15:19, 8 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks. Yes, it's an odd case where the fact that they published the book puts them somewhere up the hierarchy, but these photos are directly about them, and no one would normally think to go down that branch without a more direct inclusion. Thanks. - Jmabel ! talk 16:30, 8 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Punch Almanack[edit]

Not sure why you recognize that the "Punch Almanack for 1885" was likely published in 1884 for File:1885 Punch three-volume-novel-parody Priestman-Atkinson.png‎, but refuse to recognize that the "Punch's Almanack for 1855" was likely published in 1854 for File:1855-daguerrotype-familyphoto-joke-Punch.gif. If you have specific information on the publication dates of those two volumes, that's fine; but if you don't, then the File:1855-daguerrotype-familyphoto-joke-Punch.gif edits are problematic. Churchh (talk) 08:39, 15 May 2017 (UTC)[reply]

  • Hi there. Punch Volume 28 is dated 1855, so that's why I changed the date from 1854 when I found the illustration via HathiTrust. But I'm sure you're correct: in the bound volume, the Punch Almanack precedes the first issue of Volume 28 (January 5, 1855). I've changed the relevant categories from 1855 to 1854. — WFinch (talk) 15:16, 15 May 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Farm Security Administration by US state categorization[edit]

Hello Walter,
by checking my watchlist I have noticed that you have started creating subcategories of Category:Farm Security Administration and are sorting in images now. I'm sure that you do a good job in general and as a result are helping to push this project forward (as far as I can tell by some of your edits which appeared on my watchlist in the past) but I do doubt the usefulness and moreover the practicability of this category tree which you are creating here. Due to the fact that most of the photographs don't show the work of the Farm Security Administration itself but instead this collection mostly is a huge photo documentary series comprising of many different aspects of people's everyday life I doubt the adequacy of listing these pictures in a category labeled "Farm Security Administration" at all. I've run into a few pictures showing some FSA employees or buildings. In my opinion I would only list these ones in the FSA category.

I'm quite sure that you are aware that we have a lot more images. Category:PD US FSA/OWI lists some 9500 images because they have the {{PD-USGov-FSA}} so they are either FSA or Office of War information photographs. (I don't know who had the idea to mix them into one license template. Maybe this could be split up.) In addition we host quite some FSA images which are licensed as PD-USGov and therefore not listed into this category. I'm not sure If you are going to sort these presumably 15000 images, will you? I'm just telling you because I think you should know, that there is a pretty large-scale development project going on to improve the usability on Commons by developing very powerful features which will eventually make many of the intersection categories obsolete. This project is called Commons:Structured data. In the meantime performing an advanced search may be sufficient despite the fact that the current solution is not implemented in a user friendly way. --Zaccarias (talk) 20:12, 17 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Hi there. My objective is to make it easy to understand the scope and impact of the New Deal in concrete terms; see Category:New Deal by U.S. state. Documentary photographs of everyday life are of considerable interest. But I'm not planning to categorize FSA images beyond those that are presently in Category:Farm Security Administration. I'm happy to hear that a project is under way to organize images that are in such massive categories. — WFinch (talk) 20:43, 17 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for your immediate reply. Thinking of my own categorization work in the past with many hours performing tedious tasks I just wanted to tell you this. (Not everybody has to waste as much time on Commons working in a complicated manner as I did.) I hope you're not annoyed by my suggestions. If you want to find images you can perform search inquiries like typing hastemplate:"PD-USGov-FSA" insource:"Oregon" just in case you don't allready know this. With a little tryout some tasks can be done much more efficient. With a precise search operation you get pretty specific results. Then you may perform a sorting of them using Cat-a-lot directly on the search results page. --Zaccarias (talk) 21:04, 17 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the tip. I always seem to do things the hard way, but I'm done with that particular task now. Good luck with your efforts to make things easier to find here. — WFinch (talk) 21:57, 17 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
You're welcome. Thanks for the job you did here. Best regards. --Zaccarias (talk) 04:45, 18 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Hi there. I believe User:Yann has resolved the question. I did prepare some comments but it was difficult to even find a place to put them since there was no deletion request. The source and copyright holder was Time and it was not renewed; and no separate copyright notice appears for the photograph, which would be required. — WFinch (talk) 16:14, 22 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Chapman & Hall[edit]

@WFinch: since you edited on that category I was wondering what the difference is with Category:Chapman & Hall books. I might have made a mistake but I am not too sure. Thank you for your time. Lotje (talk) 15:03, 26 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Ah, thanks for adding the category "Chapman & Hall" to the "Chapman & Hall books" category, so it's nested within that family. Chapman & Hall also published All the Year Round, a magazine; I spent a lot of time organizing those images by year, so perhaps there could be a parallel category for magazines, now. I think the distinction is that the main Category:Chapman & Hall might also contain categories for the people who founded and ran the company, images of the company buildings, and company logos. Fortunately, there's already a subcategory for books—and I'd put Our Cruise in the Claymore into that subcategory. That's my take, anyway. — WFinch (talk) 15:48, 26 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Peter Ustinov in 1987 and Category:Peter Ustinov in 1986[edit]

@WFinch: could you take a look at the images? Looking at the clothes and little details, it seems like this and this file also date from 1986. Thank you for your time. Face-smile.svg Lotje (talk) 16:11, 8 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Oh, I agree that those two images are almost certainly from the same sitting. I'd even categorized one of them as 1986, at first, but then I categorized them both as 1987 as dated by the creator/uploader. I do suspect they're from 1986, though, if all of those other photos are from 1986. — WFinch (talk) 16:30, 8 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Riverside Press[edit]

I found this category: Category:Books published by Riverside Press and Riverside Press printed books for the Houghton Mifflin Company who were the publishers. To my understanding, if you are a publisher and you don't have a printer, you don't have any books.

I am going to just move the stuff from that category into the original category, but in a nice way. If you don't mind.... --RaboKarbakian (talk) 19:42, 13 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Here's is the notice...[edit]

I have set the books up by year by using the following syntax: [[Category:Riverside Press| year]] The year being YYYY with a space in front of it so they don't all go under "1" alphabetically.

Further, I am going to make categories for all of the djvu files that are there. I like the title page for wikidata and I think it looks very respectable in the Infoboxen.

So, the notice will show you where to argue with its deletion, and if you win, my contributions will show what files to put back. (I don't really like these notices).--RaboKarbakian (talk) 19:57, 13 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Communication[edit]

Attempts have been made to communicate with you.

Is the failure mine?

I am working on a document from my state which has a list of books that were made available to our schools to fill their new libraries with. I think it is really cool. This "who is the publisher or not" stuff is just silliness. Many publishers appeared on that list.

All of these books also have images. Many have two sets of images. Some were (perhaps) stolen from England by those publishers. It is far more interesting to sort through them as they are than it is to have "problems" with doing that.--RaboKarbakian (talk) 00:04, 20 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Kate Wiggins died in 1856[edit]

That Kate Wiggins died in 1856 means that her books were probably first published before 1856. Subsequent versions of those books have been published after that.

That first publication probably had different images. Maybe no images.

Your Kate Wiggins texts category has an audio version in it.

For a positive exercise in categorization, try starting with Kate Wiggins works. Separate the audio from the texts. Try to put the book into the year it was published. Try to find out when the book was first published for the main category.

Are you helping s:User:Akme? If so. How are you helping?--RaboKarbakian (talk) 02:02, 20 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

  • Thank you. Since the structure for the category Kate Douglas Wiggin (1856–1923) is in place, please recategorize individual files as you see fit. — WFinch (talk) 03:15, 20 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Not sure what the 'thank you' is for. It is easier and more accepted for you to revert your own edits. Also, quite possibly, you have messed things up elsewhere.--RaboKarbakian (talk) 20:46, 20 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Evelyn Nesbit in 1913[edit]

I really doubt that File:Evelyn Nesbit Thaw by Bain News Service, 1913.jpg is a photograph of her in 1913. I think it's probably from around 1901–1902. She looked rather different by 1913. Perhaps the Bain News Service published it in 1913, but I'm pretty sure that is not the date of the photo. BarrelProof (talk) 18:34, 21 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Yes—I've removed the year from the category. — WFinch (talk) 18:37, 21 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]
It's a stunning picture – even if neglecting Nesbit herself, the shoes are amazing. BarrelProof (talk) 01:42, 23 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]
It sure is. After replying to your message I did a search through 1913 newspapers using the Library of Congress's "Chronicling America", hoping to find it published via Bain News Service. It would be great to identify the year the photo was taken and credit the photographer ... That search came up empty, though. But you never know, the information might turn up someday. — WFinch (talk) 02:58, 23 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Category removal[edit]

What is the reason for this category removal? It seems relevant and not duplicated as far as I can see. -- Infrogmation of New Orleans (talk) 04:44, 13 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for catching that and letting me know. I've created a category for that file and others, and categorized it under "World War I homefront in the United States". That's a crowded category that I've been giving some attention, but I shouldn't have just removed it from that poster file without creating a subcategory. — WFinch (talk) 13:07, 13 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Funeral of Billy Spillers[edit]

You put this in a category related to Washington state. Photos say the funeral was at Arlington National Cemetery. Am I missing something, or was this just an error? - Jmabel ! talk 02:49, 20 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Boy, that is a confusing one. It seemed like Arlington National Cemetery to me until I read the caption on this file: "U.S. Sailors salute Chief Navy Counselor Billy Spillers as his coffin is lowered into the ground during his funeral at Arlington Cemetery in Arlington, Wash., April 16, 2014. Spillers and three of his children died in a March 22, 2014, mudslide that struck his home and others in Oso, Wash., a rural community 55 miles northeast of Seattle." Spillers' memorial at Find a Grave has him buried in Washington state. — WFinch (talk) 03:17, 20 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Oof. OK. I missed that! - Jmabel ! talk 16:38, 20 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]
So you are saying that the title & caption of File:U.S. Sailors fold a flag over the casket of Chief Navy Counselor Billy Spillers during his funeral April 16, 2014, at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va 140416-N-MM360-070.jpg are wrong? - Jmabel ! talk 16:40, 20 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]
(Based on a Google search, I bet you are correct, and they are wrong. Want to fix that, or should I?) - Jmabel ! talk 16:43, 20 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Please, you go ahead and fix it — I'm so glad this came up. Thanks again. — WFinch (talk) 17:15, 20 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Seattle Times, redux[edit]

While I think your recent "Seattle Times" category changes are mostly reasonable, Category:The Seattle Times people seems really awkward. When the name of the paper is used adjectivally, "the" is never included. If you really want to keep "the" it should be something like "People associated with The Seattle Times". - Jmabel ! talk 17:52, 21 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Charles Baker headstone[edit]

I'm trying to understand your removal of category: medal of honor recipients buried at Mount Moriah Cemetery, Philadelphia from File: Charles Baker headstone.jpg. He is a medal of honor recipient buried at Mount Moriah Cemetery. Dwkaminski (talk) 14:03, 15 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Suspected Vandalism[edit]

What is your reason for deleting two categories (my edits) at File:Minidoka Relocation Center. G. Kenneth Hikogawa. Polishing "grease-wood" to make furniture. - NARA - 536584.tif. Broichmore (talk) 12:21, 31 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hi there — no, this wasn't vandalism. My edit summary reads "categorized jpg"; please see Category:NARA TIF images with categorized JPGs and its talk page. Like many images from the National Archives and Records Administration, this image has duplicate tif and jpg versions that are linked. It's preferred that only the jpg version carry the categories. The jpg version of this image has the two categories you added, as well as categories that I added. Image selection is so much easier when categories aren't crowded with duplicates. Please revert your edit or join the discussion at Category talk:NARA TIF images with categorized JPGs. — WFinch (talk) 13:49, 31 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I'm Sorry, why are you not in this conversation? It's in 2012, are you having me on? Regards Broichmore (talk) 14:32, 2 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I agree with the consensus of that discussion. I encouraged you to join it if you don't agree and feel that the tif versions need to be categorized. The consensus is that they should not be categorized. — WFinch (talk) 14:50, 2 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Overcat[edit]

Isn't it overcategorization to put Category:Gordon Hirabayashi on images that are already in Category:Courage in Action, a direct subcat of Category:Gordon Hirabayashi: it was a symposium on the occasion of the presentation of Hirabayashi's Medal of Freedom to the University of Washington Library Special Collection. - Jmabel ! talk 00:37, 18 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hi there — I'd considered that, but since those files included photographs of Hirabayashi, and a document he completed and signed himself, I thought that it wouldn't hurt to have them directly available in his category, as well. If you think that's not right, please revert my edits. Thanks. — WFinch (talk) 00:44, 18 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Radio Annual and Television Yearbook, 1949[edit]

Hi, WFinch, since you created this category and I created Category:Radio Annual, 1949, following Category:Radio Annual, 1947, I am a bit confused now. What do you suggest? Thank you for your time. -) Lotje (talk) 07:00, 30 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I redirected the category I created, and added a "year in television" category to Radio Annual, 1949. That year was the first time the cover stated this yearbook was now also a television yearbook, as well. It's a title in transition, but the copyright title refers to it still as Radio Annual. (BTW, it looks like the copyright licenses on those yearbook pdfs needs to be revised — they're subjects of deletion requests.) — WFinch (talk) 13:43, 30 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

File:Jerome Relocation Center, Denson, Arkansas. At the Jerome Relocation Center, where some 8,000 west . . . - NARA - 539306.jpg[edit]

I don't know if you notice but in this edit you moved the image from Category:United States photographs taken on 1943-03-11 to the parent Category:Photographs taken on 1943-03-11. Is there a reason why you did that? -- Ricky81682 (talk) 02:09, 6 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for spotting it — it was an error. I've put the image back into the more specific category. — WFinch (talk) 02:12, 6 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Seems like you did it for a number of others. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 06:37, 6 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Delano[edit]

Apologies for adding the category Photographs by Jack Delano to photographs already in category Union Station, 1943 (a dozen times). I should have looked deeper. Vysotsky (talk) 14:55, 1 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for getting in touch, that was no problem at all. So many of those FSA and OWI photos are so poorly categorized that I was actually happy to see them get some attention. It seems to have become my life's work here. — WFinch (talk) 15:07, 1 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
And I was glad to be able to rightly add a dozen photos to the category, like this one. And I added this tool (image uptake stats). Vysotsky (talk) 15:27, 1 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Outstanding. It's upsetting when these photographers aren't getting their due, not to mention the Federal agencies. The images tend to get buried — sometimes in the wrong place entirely, like Category:1939 photographs. — WFinch (talk) 16:10, 1 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Grand Illusion image[edit]

This is a little after the fact, but you didn't provide an edit summary in your revert on File:Grand-Illusion-1937.jpg - what was your reasoning for reverting to a lower quality revision? --Iiii I I I (talk) 19:06, 12 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

In the edit that followed, I added the number of the specific promotional still to the file description: "Photograph is numbered GI-3 at lower right". This number is visible in the original upload, showing the image's magazine publication. A screen capture from a video release is not the same image. You could upload it separately, but please do not overwrite this image. — WFinch (talk) 20:32, 12 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wonderful work[edit]

Just read this fascinating essay then after a Wiki wander found your Resettlement Administration category. Great work. No Swan So Fine (talk) 12:38, 15 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Thank you, and thanks for the link to that essay, too. I've learned so much in the process of organizing these images, and others in the FSA-OWI category. Since reading that essay it's clear that the hole-punched negatives deserve their own category, so I'll create one. There aren't too many of those rejected images in the Commons yet, but there should be. — WFinch (talk) 15:44, 16 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Three images as yet, or even more? Vysotsky (talk) 16:41, 16 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hi — I'm seeing only three photographs, all from the Resettlement Administration. I've created a category for those — Category:Rejected photographs of the Resettlement Administration, subcategorized within Category:Rejected FSA-OWI photographs. This hole-punching practice continued into September 1942, the Farm Security Administration period, per a search at the Library of Congress. — WFinch (talk) 17:05, 16 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
