A barnstar for you![edit]

Thank you for your immediate action and steps to disaster recovery by restoration of deleted pages in recent event. Praveen:talk 05:58, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Not a fan of barnstars, but in this case, definitely, +146%... --A.Savin 13:48, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Main page protection[edit]

Hi, I see you added full indefinite protection to the Commons main page recently— I was viewing the main page yesterday when I saw that it had somehow been deleted (?) as promotional by an account that was quickly designated as a sockpuppet of INeverCry and blocked. Am just wondering, WTF, and how does anyone delete the Commons main page?? (not that I ever want to do it, only that I was stunned that someone was able to). Do you know what happened there? The curiosity is killing me... Thanks! KDS4444 (talk) 10:32, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

COM:AN, COM:BN, COM:AN/U should explain most of it --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 10:39, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Variations on / feature requests for video2commons[edit]

Hi Zhuyifei! v2c is extremely useful; esp the automatic subtitle extraction. I'm using it to try rapid uploading of newly relicensed course videos. Two questions:

  • Is there sth like this that can read from a spreadsheet w/ URLs and metadata? --SJ+ 13:47, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Does it make sense to include an option to try youtube-dl -f "webm" to extract the webm version directly from YT, rather than re-encoding? When it works that is rewardingly fast.

Warmly, --SJ+ 13:49, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Well, the v2c's API definitely support batch uploading, but so far I have not coded the interface to do so. See my reasoning at Commons_talk:Video2commons#Is_it_possible_to_give_the_tool_more_than_one_URL_to_do_batch_uploads.
  • The current set format bestvideo+bestaudio, with prefer-free-formats. While it gives the best quality available, it has a few downsides, namely sometimes uploading extremely large sized videos and fail (4GiB+), and not always preferring webms when available. I'm just not smart enough to perfectly integrate with youtube-dl to find out the best option available.
If you have a solution please tell me and I'll be happy to implement if it works, or you can submit a pull request. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 22:56, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Just wanted to thank you for dealing with the Daphne situation. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 15:10, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Gallica upload tool[edit]

Hi, I created this task hoping to find someone to fix it at Wikimania: phab:T172992. Regards, Yann (talk) 00:08, 12 August 2017 (UTC)


Hi Thanks for removing the image I oploaded at my request. I reuploaded it after I edited the metadata. --Sanjev Rajaram (talk) 13:42, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Arggh the metadata is still there. How do I remove it from my photo? --Sanjev Rajaram (talk) 13:44, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Update: Hey so I figured it out and reuploaded a fresh version of the image without the metadata that reveals too much info. I hope it's not too much trouble to ask you to delete this again? --Sanjev Rajaram (talk) 21:04, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

✓ Done Sorry for the delay. I was sleeping --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 00:36, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
No problem. Thanks for helping me out. --Sanjev Rajaram (talk) 03:16, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Hello, there is a bug. Regards.--Gratus (discuter) 21:02, 16 August 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gratus (talk • contribs) 21:03, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

@Gratus: Not a bug. Utilisateur:Gratus is a red link. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 23:47, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
Indeeed, I forgot to translate the links, sorry.--Gratus (talk) 07:53, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

PDM images from this US Army Europe Account[edit]

Dear Zhuyifei1999,

Is it possible if the flickrbot could be programmed just to pass PDM licensed images from the above account. I find the images are US military images--usually US Army--and they are in the Public Domain needing Human Review. And they are creating a backlog in the flickr public domain category. See 'Noble Partner'.

Just curious. I have to sign out now as its 2:06 AM in Canada. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 09:06, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

I don't like manually programming exceptions. They should change their license to 'no known copyright restrictions' or cc-0 on Flickr imo. Otherwise you could do mass-reviews :( --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 09:59, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
  • OK, Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 18:02, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Doesn't seem right[edit]

I posted this: "File:Volvo-Pete_crop.jpg". It is a crop of this: "File:Volvo_A40E_dumper_hauled_by_a_Peterbilt_truck.jpg". If the original is OK, shouldn't the crop be? Sammy D III (talk) 12:11, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Never mind, handled elsewhere. Sorry. Have a nice day. Sammy D III (talk) 16:17, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the SignBot, but in my opinion it does not make any sense to add a sign below a thumb-Picture [10]. I think your Bot should ignore things like [[File:...]].  — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 18:07, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
