Template:Gallica parameter question[edit]

Hi Yarl- It looks like you might have been the creator of the above template. Can you tell me if there's a way to add a parameter to include a direct url to a work? I'm trying to avoid the "under the digital ID" language for a web address. This question came up when I wanted to add a direct url to the image at File:Marie_de_France_(1344-1404).png. Thanks in advance for any help. Eric talk 14:18, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

@Eric: hey, sorry for no response. Today I had some time to take a look at this, is this ok for you? Or maybe passing f38 as a second param is good enough? I would prefer it, but I'm not sure how Gallica is structured and how it will work for most of the pages. Yarl 💭  18:48, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Hey, thanks! How did you know that simply adding the pipe would work, and would produce the text "direct link"? I searched for options like that before I posted. Also tried adding my own parameters, but got errors. I think it would be useful to add that guidance to the template usage section, but I'm not sure what all to put there. I think it would also help to define what is called for by "ID" in the parameter description. But I hesitate to undertake that myself as I am new to the template. On the Marie de France page, I was at first tempted to populate parameter 1 with the direct url of page 38, but I didn't want to because of the "digital ID" language. Eric talk 19:47, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
@Eric: well, I simply added second param in the template :). Now I see it's rather redundant. I was searching for more examples and I see the easiest and simplest solution is adding page number in the ID. Works like a charm. Yarl 💭  17:55, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
Yes, that's certainly simpler. I just didn't know if "digital ID" was supposed to be a specific catalog number in the Gallica system. So do you think we should flesh out the guidance in the template usage section? Eric talk 18:19, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

Structured Commons - Design feedback request: Multilingual Captions[edit]

Hello! You are receiving this message because you signed up for the the community focus group for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons.

The Structured Data on Commons team has a new design feedback request up for Multilingual Captions support in the Upload Wizard. Visit the page for more information about the potential designs. Discussion and feedback is welcome there.

On a personal note, you'll see me posting many of these communications going forward for the Structured Data project, as SandraF transitions into working on the GLAM side of things for Structured Data on Commons full time. For the past six months she's been splitting time between the two roles (GLAM and Community Liaison). I'm looking forward to working with you all again. Thank you, happy editing.

File:Siekierki - fotopolska.eu (289940).jpg[edit]

Ich schreibe dir mal auf Deutsch, du kannst mir auch auf Englisch antworten, Polnisch kann ich leider nicht.
Die Attribute des Fotos sind leider falsch und es ist in my humble opion sehr zweifelhaft, ob hier ein public domain voriegt. Es steht dort

Es wird also behauptet, dass www.zeno.org / fotopolska.eu der Urheber sei. Oder der Rechteinhaber. Wie soll das gehen?

Der Autor des Fotos ist ein Ansichtskarten-Fotograf. Der anscheinend unbekannt ist.

Ein Foto eines unbekannten Fotografen könnte als c:Template:PD-old-assumed gelten, das setzt aber 120 Jahre voraus. c:Template:PD-Polish kommt imho auch nicht in Frage. Aber vielleicht hast du noch eine Idee, ansonsten werde ich einen deletion request stellen, dann sieht man weiter. Gruß --Goesseln (talk) 19:23, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

Multilingual captions beta testing[edit]

The Structured Data on Commons team has begun beta testing of the first feature, multilingual file captions, and all community members are invited to test it out. Captions is based on designs discussed with the community[1][2] and the team is looking forward to hearing about testing. If all goes well during testing, captions will be turned on for Commons around the second week of January, 2019.

Multilingual captions are plain text fields that provide brief, easily translatable details of a file in a way that is easy to create, edit, and curate. Captions are added during the upload process using the UploadWizard, or they can be added directly on any file page on Commons. Adding captions in multiple languages is a simple process that requires only a few steps.

The details:

  • There is a help page available on how to use multilingual file captions.
  • Testing will take place on Beta Commons. If you don’t yet have an account set up there, you’ll need one.
  • Beta Commons is a testbed, and not configured exactly like the real Commons site, so expect to see some discrepancies with user interface (UI) elements like search.
  • Structured Data introduces the potential for many important page changes to happen at once, which could flood the recent changes list. Because of this, Enhanced Recent Changes is enabled as it currently is at Commons, but with some UI changes.
  • Feedback and commentary on the file caption functionality are welcome and encouraged on the discussion page for this post.
  • Some testing has already taken place and the team are aware of some issues. A list of known issues can be seen below.
  • If you discover a bug/issue that is not covered in the known issues, please file a ticket on Phabricator and tag it with the “Multimedia” tag. Use this link to file a new task already tagged with "Multimedia."

Known issues:

Thanks!

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)[edit]

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 November or Thursday, 10 November 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on mediawiki.org because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:22, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Duplicate detection in Pattypan[edit]

Hi Yarl, does Pattypan have an option to prevent it from uploading exact duplicates like File:John Singleton Copley - Nathaniel Hurd - 1915.534 - Cleveland Museum of Art.tif? How to enable it? Multichill (talk) 19:38, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

@Multichill: Was it exact duplicate? Currently it's relying on MediaWiki API error message only. Yarl 💭  13:27, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
Same SHA1 hash. That's also what Mediawiki throws an warning for so I don't understand how that file could have been uploaded.
In Pywikibot I usually just locally calculate the SHA1 hash and ask the Mediawiki API if it already has that file (example code).
It's much faster (especially with local files) and prevents accidental duplicates. Maybe worth adding to Pattypan too? Multichill (talk) 14:15, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
Have a look at Special:DeletedContributions/Madreiling. All duplicates.... Multichill (talk) 22:19, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - development update, March 2019[edit]

This text is also posted on the Structured Data hub talk page. You can reply there with questions, comments, or concerns.

A development update for the current work by the Structured Data on Commons team:

After the release of multilingual file captions, work began on getting depicts and other statements ready for release. These were originally scheduled for release in February and into March, however there are currently two major blockers to finishing this work (T215642, T217157). We will know more next week about when depicts and statements can likely be ready for testing and then release; until then I've tentatively updated the release schedule.

Once the depicts feature is ready for testing, it will take place in two stages on TestCommons. The first is checking the very basics; is the design comfortable, how does the simple workflow of adding/editing/removing statements work, and building up help and process pages from there. The second part is a more detailed test of depicts and other statements, checking the edge-case examples of using the features, bugs that did not come up during simple testing, etc. Additionally we'll be looking with the community for bugs in interaction with bots, gadgets, and other scripts once the features are live on Commons. Please let me know if you're interesting in helping test and fix these bugs if they show up upon release, it is really hard to find them in a test environment or, in some cases, bugs won't show up in a testing environment at all.

One new thing is definitely coming within the next few weeks, pending testing: the ability to search for captions. This is done using the inlabel keyword in search strings, and will be the first step in helping users find content that is specifically structured data. I'll post a notice when that feature is live and ready for use.

Thanks, let me know if you have questions about these plans. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:34, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - early depicts testing[edit]

The Structured Data on Commons development team has the very basic version of depicts statements available for early testing on Test-Commons. You can add very basic depicts statements to the file page by going into the new “Structured Data” tab located below the "Open in Media Viewer button." You can use the Latest Files link in the left side nav bar to select existing images, or use the UploadWizard to upload new ones to test with (although those images won’t actually show up on the site). The test site is not a fully functional replica of Commons, so there may be some overall problems in using the site, but you should be able to get a general idea of what using the feature is like.

Early next week I will call for broad, community-wide testing of the feature similar to what we did for Captions, with instructions for testing, known bugs, and a dedicated space to discuss the feature as well as a simple help page for using statements. Until then, you're welcome to post on the SDC talk page with what you might find while testing depicts.

Thanks in advance for trying it out, you'll be hearing more from me next week. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:59, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
