hi,

is there any chance to block anonymous user from reverting images? it seems a script can compute the link, which reverts an image to an old version. something like this is going on on de.wikipedia.

HTML to wiki converter[edit]

I'd like to thank you for this great tool, it makes my life a zillion times easier. Thanks again and keep up the great work! Halibutt


- Kannst Du den Converter vielleicht auch auf WikiMedia stellen - die Uni Bonn wird es vielleicht nicht ewig auf ihren Rechnern laufen lassen... - Danke Sebastian

Enhanced Recent Changes as Default[edit]

Magnus amazing work!. I am currently running MediaWiki version 1.5Beta3 and was wondering how can I set as default the Enhanced recent changes for all users when they register their account. While still leave the option available for users preferences to uncheck it. I went briefly over the DefaultSettings.php but couldn't find the parameter related to this setting.

Thanks! --Martin 21:12, 11 August 2005 (UTC)

RfA revisited[edit]

Hi Magnus,

Your adminship is up for review (along with everyone else who became an admin in the same n-month period). Do you still want adminship on meta?

Hi Magnus, am I stupid? Where can I get the software? I've tried your download-link but it was not reachable!? Dieter 15:41, 25 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Article validation feature[edit]

See Talk:MediaWiki feature list#Article validation feature. See Talk:Article validation feature#Where is the code?. Brianjd | Why restrict HTML? | 06:07, 2005 Mar 13 (UTC)

Magnus, please check En validation topics - User:Beland has taken most of the current suggestions and put them together into a form that I think will work very nicely (En_validation_topics#Consolidated_proposal). There's a couple of questions I've asked you on that page as well - David Gerard 22:59, 30 May 2005 (UTC)

Magnus, I have a few requests for this feature, which taken together, I believe, will substantially improve it:

Article (stable-version) - URL:"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematics/stable"
  • firstly, the review is worthless to a reader unless the reader is somehow affected by it. A reader should be able to see the page with the highest rating.
    • I believe there should be another tab on the top for this, perhaps "stable", or replace article with "draft" and make the new tab "article". "article" is version with highest rating, "draft" is latest version.
    • I believe the stable version should be the default for non-logged-in users, and the draft for logged-in users.
      • (low priority) registered users should be able to choose the default in their preferences.
Click where a thumb would be to flip to thumbs up(approve), click again to flip to thumbs down(disapprove). overall rating is shown in horizontal bar. Current stable version (highest rated) is highlighted. (sorry about the bad image editing)
  • there should be a horizontal bar in the history, for each version, showing it's rating.
    • (low priority) it would be nice to be able to vote via this bar
    • (low priority) it would be nice to have a similiar feature in diffs, and be able to vote from there
  • secondly, this means that a really old version with a high rating might be the "stable" version, while a newer, lower rated, but better article, is not, there are solutions to this
    • logarithmic decay of effective ratings
    • maximum number of revisions a user can rate on an article at a time - rating an revision that you haven't rated removes your rating of the rating you made the longest time ago (not neccessarily the oldest revision)
  • ability to filter out revisions in the history that are below a specifiable rating threshold.

That's the jist of it. Feel free to discuss. Thanks. Kevin Baastalk 01:15, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Historical atlas[edit]

Hi Magnus,

I want to help you creating an online historical atlas. At the moment atlases in book form are better then the online versions. But internet has such huge possibilities, that the online maps should become much better. Maps could be clickable giving links to other maps and data in text. Maps could give detailed information on areas in small intervals in time. Alternative maps on an area could be made, when there is a lack of sources.

I'm studying history in Leiden, Holland and no little about software. But i have been looking on historical maps since my childhood. In the 1990s an online historical atlas was made, called Centennia, but the information on it is limited (Europe and Middle East from 1000 untill now) and it is not free, it costs $89. Maps in modern historical atlases are mainly derived from German historical atlases from the 19th century. German atlases are the most accurate, but American atlases give a good overview.--Daan 14:02, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

Google Summer of Code[edit]

Hi, I'm sorry to disturb you, I know you have been working on a wiki2xml export tool. I would like to know who I have to contact about the project of Export and how it works :) Thank you for your response.

missing image tool[edit]

suggestion: add *disambig* to the filter instead of adding many images with that word to the list. drini 01:30, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Likewise *Nuvola* and *Noia* which are some widely used icon sets for disambigs and stubs. drini 01:47, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Perhaps Crystal*.png and Qsicon*.png ? drini 01:53, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

missing image tool redux[edit]

is there a way for the script work on a given list ionstead of a random choice? For instance, in an article about a Jules Verne nove, script foudn a Jules Verne picture, but then I'd like to search for a frigate or other related items, but I don't know how to feedback the script with the list of articles I want pictures about. drini 17:06, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Annoying you again[edit]

I was curious about what do colors represent on the image missing list. drini 21:38, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

One problem[edit]

Hi :-) I find really useful your missing images tools :-) But i have a small problem, in articles with names with strange chars it doesn't seems to work; For example the article ca:Nombre d'Avogadro has an image and interwiki links, but the search doen't find it... Result number 7 with search parametres;

  • Check in: ca.wikipedia
  • Category : Química
  • Subcat depth : 0

Thanks :-) --Joanjoc 15:20, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your rapid response :-) Another minor problem, runing the same query as above but with a subcat depth of 1, appears some redirects; ca:Elements químics and ca:Química física. The first page only contains the redirect code without images nor categories, but the destination page has iw not reported by your magnific tool... --Joanjoc 20:43, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Macedonian for CatScan2[edit]

Hello Magnus, I added the complete Macedonian translation (mk) of CatScan2 on CatScan2/Interface and the manual (CatScan2/mk) and I was wondering if you could tell me when we can expect to see it implemented. Thanks a lot! --B. Jankuloski 02:31, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

It was "implemented" the moment you put the translation on the interface page. If something's not working, please tell me. --Magnus Manske 07:58, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Portuguese Makeref/Toolserver[edit]

First, my appologies for making my request by this talk page instead of by system JIRA, but I don't know how these system works.

I created a portuguese version of makeref (here and here), but for some reason the option "Um artigo num jornal académico ou num periódico" is not working.

Can you explain what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advice--MiguelMadeira 16:34, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

No more help needed - I discovered what the problem is--MiguelMadeira 18:06, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Main categories[edit]

Hi Magnus - Thank you very much for the Catscan tool, it is so very useful! I am currently doing some academic research on English Wikipedia article pages and I would like to categorize them at the Main category level. For this, I was trying to use http://toolserver.org/~magnus/catscan_rewrite.php with categories such as "education", "business" and depth 50 (or so) to generate complete lists of all the articles in each category (so, 10 lists). Obviously some articles will be in multiple lists.

However I suspect this query is difficult for the toolserver because of the sheer amount of nodes it needs to explore in the category tree. Is there any way you can help me get those 10 lists?

Thank you so much!!

Best, Andreea

commonshelper2[edit]

Hello. There was a small question on local ru.wiki village pump about commonshelper's work recently and I memorised that is still doesn't work for ru.wiki. Bug is still opened but you've proposed to update commonshelperII instead of trying to fix commonshelper. I've updated necessary data in April but I suppose CHII wasn't updated according to this info. Is it possible to fix this issue? Ru.wiki can't transfer images to Commons since the beginning of 2011 if I am not wrong... :( rubin16 14:02, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

GLAMorous and Atlassian problems[edit]

The whole Atlassian thing is a complete fiasco -- I spent at least 15 minutes at that site, and never managed to login (at one point, it told me I was logged in, but I actually wasn't).

In any case, GLAMorous has problems, in that:
1) The "Copy the URL of this link to return to this view. This data is also available in XML format." links do not work if you're searching by user. I had to manually munge the URl http://toolserver.org/~magnus/glamorous.php?doit=1&category=&use_globalusage=1&ns0=1&show_details=1&format=xml to http://toolserver.org/~magnus/glamorous.php?doit=1&username=AnonMoos&use_globalusage=1&ns0=1&show_details=1&format=xml
2) An alternative "slightly detailed" mode is really needed. When I clicked on the second of the URLs above, the download stopped after 3.81 megabytes was downloaded, and the data was still in the middle of reporting on the first image (out of 1339) on the list, File:Flag_of_Turkey.svg. I think people would be interested in a view which did NOT report on individual page uses, so that they could see which of their images were most used in a reasonably-sized overview.
Thanks! -- AnonMoos 16:19, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

XSS vulnerability[edit]

I found a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in CatScan. Example: https://toolserver.org/~magnus/catscan_rewrite.php?categories=%3C/textarea%3E%3Cscript%3Ealert(%27XSSed%27);%3C/script%3E (will open an alert box). I don't know how to use JIRA, but it looks like I'll need a toolserver account (I don't have one) and/or to give out personal info, so I'm writing this here. πr2 (tc) 16:28, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Several (all?) of your other tools are vulnerable as well. (could it be in some shared code?) πr2 (tc) 16:58, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Cambridge fresher's fair[edit]

Hello Magnus,

I've bid a stall on behalf of the Cambridge University Wikipedia Society at the Cambridge University fresher's fair, 2-3 October. If you are around, it would be great if you can come and help by staffing the stall for a few hours - having one of the inventors of MediaWiki man the stall will certainly be a boost!

The fair will run, roughly, from 9am to 7pm on the 2nd, and 9am to 4pm on the 3rd; details are yet to be confirmed.[1] You certainly won't be expected to stay the whole day unless you really want to! It'll be a sign-up stall for the campus Wikipedia Society, and we'll give out Wikimedia freebies at the event to promote awareness for Wikipedia-editing and Wikimedia UK.

Please contact me if you're interested in helping, even if it's just a few hours. Thanks! (Apologies for double-posting if you've seen this message on wikimediauk-l already!) Deryck C. 22:30, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia DVD/offline[edit]

Hi Magnus, I saw your contribution on http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_and_Mandrakesoft. OK you may be the guy to give me some advice. I am teaching in a country riddled not only by censorship but also by slow internet. We discussed at our expat school if there is an option to install wikipedia directly onto our school server so that we can have the kids work with it via school net but without being subject to the frequent interruptions. Besides that I have a very strong interest in some advice how you practically produced that German DVD you mentioned. If you think you can help me kindly leave me a line at kipala@web.de. --Kipala (talk) 05:51, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Requests for BaGLAMa[edit]

Hi Magnus!

I was wondering if you could be so kind to help me by adding the categories that I have listed here to BaGLAMa? It would really help WMSE as some of the GLAMs involved want some statistics to brag about :-).

Best,

John Andersson (WMSE) (talk) 14:47, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Added. They will show up on the next run after the current one. Couplea days. --Magnus Manske (talk) 15:07, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
That's great! Thank you! Could you also add https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Media_created_by_technology_pool_of_Wikimedia_Sverige? It would be interesting to see the effect of this project. Best, John Andersson (WMSE) (talk) 20:37, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Reasonator not working[edit]

Dear Magnus, the Reasonator stopped working this week. Could you please have a look? Perhaps this has something to do with the Wikidata change Daniel Kinzler announced this week. Longbow4u (talk) 09:56, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Yup, API upgrade broke it. Should be fixed now. Thanks for alerting me. --Magnus Manske (talk) 11:31, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Category tree[edit]

Hello. Could you tell me, please, is there any possibility for scanning a Wikipedia on some language (37788 categories) and return for each category an inverse tree of parent categories up to some level? For example, for level 2, category a is in b and in c, category b is in d and e, category c is in e, or something like that? Thank you very much in advance, IKhitron (talk) 18:53, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

There's no ready-made tool, but it's certainly possible. Which language were you thinking of, and what output format? --Magnus Manske (talk) 19:04, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank for your quick answer. It's the he Wikipedia (so, unfortunately, non ASCII names can be an issue). Output format is not so important, as long as it will be compact (meaning the tree for each category is continuous). If you just add some print function and it is not a problem to add any format, I prefer CSV. But I do not want to bother you. Thank you very much, IKhitron (talk) 19:26, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

CatScan usage for bots[edit]

Hello Magnus,

I'm a little bit troubled with the usage of your cool tool with a bot. How I see it my bot isn't able to tell your tool, which output format is to use. Maybe you can give me a hint to a documentation, which goes further than the gui.

Regards --THE IT (talk) 12:12, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

You can use "format=X", with X one of html, csv, tsv, wiki, json. For example, JSON. --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:51, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. That’s a step further ;-). A brief overview over all options (maybe later when the tool is finished) would be very helpful. If I hit further problems ... now I have found your xmpp-Adress. Again many thanks. --THE IT (talk) 17:31, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Hello Magnus, sadly there is further struggle. When I try to acces the link with a python-script (via the Post method) the access is forbidden (403) with the reason 'Requests must have a user agent'. Can you give me a hint about my mistake? Regards --THE IT (talk) 17:59, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
I don't make the web server (lighttpd), but it seems you need to specify a user agent? Any should do, just needs to be present. --Magnus Manske (talk) 10:48, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Not in the other language[edit]

Hallo Magnus, Entschuldigung für die Störung; ich hätte eine kleine Frage: Kann dein Not-in-the-other-language Tool auch für Artikeln zwischen zwei sprachlichen Versionen von Wikivoyage benutzt werden oder nur zwischen Wikipedia Artikeln?

Geograph2commons possible bug[edit]

Dear Magnus, I believe the very wonderful Geograph2Commons tool is one of yours? If so I have a possible bug. Most images can be uploaded or tell you they have already been uploaded. But some images fail with a message of "Warning" and nothing more specific. This being an example, as far as I can see it hasn't been uploaded already and has a compatible license, but if I've missed something would it be possible for the warning to say why images like this don't upload? Many thanks WereSpielChequers (talk) 09:01, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Flickr2Commons[edit]

Hi Magnus! Firstly, congrats for your huge history of support inside Wikimedia projects! :) So, I would like to upload these great pictures from Flickr to Commons, but Flickr2Commons doesn't allow me because they're mostly bad named (just number sequences). Is there a way to automatic set a prefix to the pictures, just like "Alexander Baranov - " or something like that? Other suggestion? Regards, Sturm (talk) 19:09, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Yes there is! Once the images are loaded in flickr2commons, there is a green-ish button "Prefix selected named", which will do what you want. It's next to the "Select all" and "Deselect all" buttons. --Magnus Manske (talk) 19:30, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
Found it! Great! :) But now I found that the prefix is inserted always with a double space, even if I do not insert any, like: "File by Alexander Baranov - (19411107842).jpg". Is there any problem to upload like this? Is there a way to avoid the double space? Hint: its between "...anov - (19..."; the double space is just visible in the wikimarkup! ;) Sturm (talk) 21:10, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
Solve it using this basic tool, ;) Sturm (talk) 23:05, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
Hummm, this Flickr account uses CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0), but Flickr2Commons tells me that "No suitable photos found. Maybe they are not under a free license?". I think that it's the case of add this license to do the list of acceptable licenses of the tool, nope? Sturm (talk) 08:56, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Try it now. --Magnus Manske (talk) 15:40, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

I just transferd this with flickr2sommons, from your example user. No problems. Maybe force-reload flickr2commons once to clear the cache? --Magnus Manske (talk) 18:44, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Just amazed with your tool! Congrats again! :) But another question: When I load an album with over 600 pictures, Flickr2Commons don't show thumbnails in order to avoid problems related to memory use of the browser. But, many times its very important to see the thumbnails in order to select what pictures are reasonable to upload to the project. So, I would like to suggest a feature that turns able to show the thumbnails of a large album in sets of a maximum of 600 files (like "Page 1", "Page 2"...). What do you think? And finally, any chance of a Picasa equivalent?!?!? :D Regards, Sturm (talk) 18:15, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Flickr2Commons is able to identify the files of this album as free licensed only when run and uploaded one by one, but not when I try to run the album set. Sturm (talk) 08:09, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

OAuth approval[edit]

Hi Magnus,

I would like to request the approval of my OAuth application Kaspar [1.0]. I already did edits with it on Wikidata. Do I have to provide more information? How does this process work? -- T.seppelt (talk) 23:36, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

What future IdeaLab campaigns would you like to see?[edit]

IdeaLab logo dark orange.png

Hi there,

I’m Jethro, and I’m seeking your help in deciding topics for new IdeaLab campaigns that could be run starting next year. These campaigns aim to bring in proposals and solutions from communities that address a need or problem in Wikimedia projects. I'm interested in hearing your preferences and ideas for campaign topics!

Here’s how to participate:

Take care,

ListeriaBot at frwiki[edit]

Hello,

Please request the bot flag for ListeriaBot on frwiki. It can be done at fr:Wikipédia:Bot/Statut.

Regards

--Hercule (talk) 13:11, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

@Hercule: Could you do that for Magnus ? I guess that if he had to do that for every wiki, 200+ time, it would be quite tedious. I would have done that myself but I can't right now. TomT0m (talk) 13:23, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
@Hercule: I tried, but the template is broken, or something. I don't speak French. --Magnus Manske (talk) 15:41, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
I changed few thinks. Please change in the request :
  • PURPOSE_OF_THE_BOT : explain the purpose of your bot
  • USED_SCRIPT : the script you use, if any (like Pywikipedia)
  • ALREADY_USED_ON_(WITH_BOT_STATUS) : the major wikipedias where you have the bot flag. You can also indicate if it has the global bot flag
  • ALREADY_USED_ON_(WITHOUT_BOT_STATUS) : the major wikipedias where you edit without the bot flag (if any)
On the section "Remarques" you can indicate if you have another bot running on frwiki
Regards

@Nemo bis:Lol, we are haters ? Thank you for your word. As you can read, the talks about Wikidata on fr.wikipedia have started in july 2015, since almost no problem has been solved... Looks like the supports are long-time Wikidata incompetents. --Consulnico (talk) 11:32, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

ListeriaBot @ etwiki[edit]

ListeriaBot regular updating of pages seems not to work in etwiki, for example in list https://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vikipeedia:Vikiandmed/Riigijuhid --WikedKentaur (talk) 18:04, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Should be fixed now. --Magnus Manske (talk) 19:27, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. And one more request. We use coordinate template compatible with German wiki Template:Coordinate. So calls like

{{Coordinate|text=DMS|NS=53.4139|EW=7.79646|name=Q1775366|simple=y|type=landmark|region=x}}

will work in etwiki and enwiki template Coord calls won't work in etwiki. Could you switch ListeriaBot coordinate template from Coord to Coordinate for etwiki. --WikedKentaur (talk) 18:09, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

frwiki[edit]

Hello,

after some problematic uses, ListeriaBot has been denied bot status on the French wikipedia. I don't know how this is supposed to work now. Is it possible for you to block it from editing on the French wikipedia ? Thanks, Jean-Jacques Georges (talk) 15:58, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

I'm not agree with Jean-Jacques Georges, the majority have the yes for your bot (51%, 20% against in the main, 29% against), but not enough for the "flag bot", the best is to continue using your bot but not on the main . Sebk (talk) 16:15, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Actually there is a consensus to disable it in article namespace on the template talk page [4], but there is no discussion showing a consensus to fully disable it. If you can throttle it to avoid flooding RC, it should be fine. Akeron (talk) 16:19, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Well, your bot needed 75%, which it did not obtain in any case, so normally it shouldn't be able to edit anywhere on frwiki. Jean-Jacques Georges (talk) 16:32, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Jean-Jacques Georges. you are wrong... we voted for the "flag bot" not for the bot and you know it. Sebk (talk) 16:40, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Geograph upload - no text[edit]

Hi The Geograph upload tool http://toolserver.org/~magnus/geograph_org2commons.php isn't uploading the text

eg recent upload of

http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3803146

gives

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cottingham_Road,_Kingston_upon_Hull_(geograph_3803146).jpg

Can it capture the text Our Lady of Lourdes & St Peter Chanel Catholic Church, No.119 Cottingham Road, known locally as the Marist Church. The Society of Mary (Marist Fathers and Brothers) is an international congregation of priests and brothers which has its headquarters in Rome. A temporary church was erected in Cottingham Road by the Marist Fathers in 1925 and replaced by the present church in 1957 (Architect: John Houghton).

Improve wikishootme with specific wikimetric targeting[edit]

Hello.

May I disturb you? Mayne you remember me about the wiki needs picture grant. I am not here to disturb you with those details, I am only doing 20% of the work there, so if there is any curious question for you that would be for AlessioMela to make. I am here because as stated in the grant our aim is to create cooperative tools, not comptitive tools. Since I am in charge of the "social" aspect of the operation I show image tools to newbies at wikimedian meetings, ask for feedback etc

Well, long story short: wikishootme is great and is a good starting point. We are missing users with spcific tematic interest on wikidata and fixing information about the territories they're living is a nice introduction, it kinda works. Wikishootme suggest very simple tasks, less complicated than finding images on flickr and check copyroght tags etc. So it is nice, plus is a very concrete way to introduce to geo-coordinate and I have to confess that this step always takes a good 15 minutes in wikimedia classes for newbies. it is good, no doubt about it. That's why I show it with pleasure to newbies for feedback since our tool is not 100% operational.

if you remember I politely suggested that one problem of wikishootme is that it has a still considerable amount of false negatives and positives. False negatives are created by the lack of coordinates information, false positives by the slow update of the image properties on wikidata. Newbies all confirmed this impression referring to their area whilst exploring it. this means it will take some years for the tool to be efficently used and I would like to to fix the gap.

So, this year I've started to spam users about wikishootme and how to improve the data it relies on. A 20% of them seems responsive. it is not great but it is something and we can perform this strategy globally if we want.

The point is: we can do more. I can use some basic wikimetrics I know in order to select automatically "trusted local users" (as I did with itWikipedia, I just rememeber their names from many other initiatives) than filter them by a minimal acitvity on wikidata and spam a message pointing out the importance to check coordinates and image properties. It's not going to fill 100% the gap but it shouldn't take so much time compared to the results. I think I can find some users who are willing to help me on this technical part, if you just want to provide a simple supervision.

Would you support the idea? I was thinking of proposing a grant but we can start to target a group of users of one local wikipedia I can speak the language. Like the German one, as a test. My data so far with itWiki users are not complete, I need a full scale test before proposing a grant for all the platforms, so I know how to refine it. i don't want to waste WMF money... Plus italian wikipedia is mainly based on Italian territory where the copyright laws are a mess. German-speaking cuntries show a very localized activities but in area where there is for example freedom of panorama, so a spam message about finding local images shouldn't be handled with too much care,

Would you like the idea?--Alexmar983 (talk) 13:25, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi Alexmar983! Obviously, I like the idea to recruit people to help fill in images on Wikidata (presumably with WD-FIST?). I am a little cautious about mass-spamming, though; maybe a note on the local "village pump" would be less aggressive? Also, be aware that Wikidata currently adds images at ~5x the rate of any other Wikimedia project (see my blog entry), and it has surpassed all but en.wp in total number of items/articles with images. --Magnus Manske (talk) 14:19, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
I have to study WD-FIST, I don't know anything about it. I am leaving for a long flight, so well talk again in some weeks.
In any case I believe the rate is huge but I cannot estimate how many months it will require to get an operational equilibrium. For countries like Italy it's probably a lot, we are talking about years. In their innocence newbies don't lies :D On the bright side, they don't lie when they say they like your tool and they would use it if it were complete, that's why I want to improve the "coverage" of items with images.
Just remember that the local village pump is in theory that on wikidata. We are using the wikimtrics from DEwiki,but we are not leaving a message on DEwiki. But if you prefer we can start with DEwiki village pump, than inform wikidata village pump at a second step, I was hoping to find more de-N interest on wikidata so they could inform later DEwiki because my German is good but not as great as my French or English.
Also, the main target are autopatrolled-like users, so it is not a big "mass". We are talking about a subset of users with a minimum activity on wikidata and editors on dewiki, AND recently active, so it is not a big number. It is spam, but very targeted spam. There are at least two cases of "mass" yet targeted spamming I've co-organized on itWikipedia, and there was no problem. One was about the new CX tool and the ther one about a DRDI information campaign. AP users are traditionally very selective. A 10-33% of them are interested and are grateful, the rest are not interested and skip the message but they don't feel harrassed, I don' t expect DEwiki users to act dfferently, especially when contacted on a different platform. There were even bigger spamming campaigns about WMF election on itWiki and they were not criticized. Recent targeted research has been performed by email from FRwiki, I don't remeber any complaints... I think that past experiences show us that spreading useful information is welcome, a simple discussion is probably enough to take care of all the suggestions. If you want it to be on DEwiki, ok. I preferred data so I could write in English where I master a more technical jargon, but it will just take me 1-2 days more to refine the presntation message.--Alexmar983 (talk) 12:52, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

I have started to spam also WD-FIST, I show it to all users who have started to show interest to the P18 property. It seems ok. I've contacted an user expert on wikimetrics by email, we'll crunch some numbers in the following days. Maybe if you prefer we can target the user active on commons but not active on wikidata. This will also boost the speed of image upload.--Alexmar983 (talk) 01:20, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

wdfist improvement[edit]

Hi, it's me again. I was playing with the wdfist tool and there is one "option" I cannot find or set up after few minutes of search, so it is possible that some users with less cross wiki experience than me will fac this problem as well. I am preparing a new message for another two local users and I thought I can introduce them to this tool as well, so I wonder if it can be improved. Maybe just a simple shortcut.

So, what "option" are you talking about?

Now my issue is that the tool is good, very handy but suggestions need to be skimmed. That is, too much football-related items for example. Very local users specialized in description of their own territory don't need them IMHO. Is it possible in the wdfist tool to remove all wikidata items without geocoordinates focusing on buildings or places?--Alexmar983 (talk) 14:40, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Both WDQ and SPARQL queries can filter out without geocoordinates. Property is P625. --2001:630:206:FFFF:0:0:3128:B 15:57, 22 February 2016 (UTC)
The "option" is what is expressed in the secondo part of my comment, that is the possibility to list only items with geocoordinates. I am sure you can get it somehow but can you insert in the list of Permalinks at the end a specific box "show items with geocoordinates (P625)", basically the opposite of what you do with P18. It is much easier for a newbie if they can fill a box, IMHO. I am introducing the tool with the category option, not SPARQL, because SPARQL it is too technical.--Alexmar983 (talk) 18:33, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Oauth[edit]

Magnus,

I've been working for a while to help my application shed TUSC so that you no longer have to maintain it. I've proposed an OAuth consumer. Could you authorize it, deny it, let me know what other information you need, etc.?

Thanks. Magog the Ogre (talk) 21:30, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

OK, I think I approved it... --Magnus Manske (talk) 23:45, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

ListeriaBot at iawiki[edit]

iawiki is maybe the first Wikipedia that has infoboxes on all pages in the article namespace and has no local data in any article infobox - all info there comes from Wikidata.

The next step on automatisation is to have the lists populated from Wikidata. All lists are in namespace 102. [5]

ia:Appendice:Lista de statos de Brasil has Listeria-templates. How can it be started that the bot runs there? 91.9.107.250 10:31, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

It has picked up automatically by now. Check the bot status if edits seem to lag behind. --Magnus Manske (talk) 12:12, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

Observation regarding geograph2commons[edit]

I have tried to upload some files from geo-en.hlipp.de to Commons. Some worked, others not. It appears that only those files could be successfully uploaded on whose pages (not only in the title!) there were no special characters (umlauts, eszett, accented letters) that are not normally used in English. For instance, I never managed to upload pictures from Baden-Württemberg or Köln, or anything with "-straße", "-café" or "-gebäude" in the title or the description. Is this perhaps the reason for the observed inconsistencies? Besides, the script, as it is, still inserts "geograph.co.uk" in the comment section even if another server is used as the source. --Schlosser67 (talk) 10:30, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

ListeriaBot at eowiki[edit]

Hi Magnus! I am administrator of Wikipedia in Esperanto. Please, ask for bot status in eowiki for ListeriaBot. Also, global bots are allowed in eowiki. Gamliel Fishkin 11:38, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi, I do not have the bandwidth to ask for bot status on (potentially) 300+ languages, which I do not speak. I applied for a global bot flag, but was told ListeriaBot does not meet the criteria (only specific purposes allowed). --Magnus Manske (talk) 11:48, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
If you want, I can ask for a bot flag for ListeriaBot at Wikipedia in Esperanto (however, AFAIK, in many language sections of Wikipedia an ask to the bureaucrats can be written in English; also, all existing for today bureaucrats of Wikipedia in Esperanto speak German). And, only as a temporary workaround, I can give to ListeriaBot an autopatrolled (autoreview) flag. Gamliel Fishkin 11:35, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

Your Bot has removed Siv-erv_logo1.png from my BNR[edit]

Hi Magnus Manske, your Bot has removed "Siv-erv_logo1.png" from my BNR entry de:Benutzer:Denalos/Software_Industrieverband_Elektronischer_Rechtsverkehr_SIV-ERV I am a member of this "Industrieverband" and I got the permission to use the logo. Please let me know what's wrong AND until now the article wasn't put into the ANR because it's unter construction. I think it's a bad idea to edit/destroy BNR-Entries without contacting the autor. Best regards --Denalos (talk) 07:33, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi, do you wish a bot flag for ListeriaBot@cswiki? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:12, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

If cswiki wants that, sure. But I can't go through bot applications on dozens of wikis, in languages I don't speak, myself. Only so much bandwidth. --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:13, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
Granted. Thanks for your service. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 13:20, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Danke! Die auto matches sind wirklich gut. Ich finde kaum einen Fehler. Wäre es möglich, alle auto matches für Wikidata-Items vom Typ Film (+ Unterklassen) automatisch zu bestätigen? Sofern Filme gleich benannt sind, kriegen sie im Lexikon wie in der Wikipedia einen Klammerzusatz. Queryzo (talk) 19:42, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Würde ich lieber nicht machen. Namen-matches können sehr gut sein, aber der Punkt von mix-n-match ist die manuelle Kontrolle. Ich mache manchmal Ausnahmen, aber dann z.B. matching über externe IDs. --Magnus Manske (talk) 08:57, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Mix'n'Match OFDb[edit]

Hallo Magnus, ich bin bereit für den zweiten Film-Katalog. Können wir noch was verbessern, z.B. Film als type, damit nicht die ganzen Personen und Romane Auto match verwirren ? Queryzo (talk) 16:46, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

"Type" unterscheidet im Moment nur zwischen "person" und "sonstiges". Keine Spezialbehandlung für "film" etc. --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:50, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
eben! Wäre es aufwendig, diese nachzurüsten? Queryzo (talk) 20:31, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
Erledigt. Gib als Typ die Q-ID des "Wurzelelements" an (hier wohl Q11424 für "Film"), damit auch Unterklassen (z.B. "Dokumentarfilm") berücksichtigt werden. Habe das mal für LdiF-IDs gemacht; auto-matches sind von ~21% auf ~17% zurückgegangen, aber dafür hoffentlich mit höherer Qualität. --Magnus Manske (talk) 09:14, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
Super, danke! Queryzo (talk) 17:07, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Der neue Katalog ist nun online: [8] Allerdings hat sich trotz Angabe von Q11424 einiges an Nicht-Film-Items angefunden. Kannst du mal gucken? LG Queryzo (talk) 17:57, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Das kommt daher, das in Deinem Import Schrott-Typen sind, z.B. "bestia magnifica", und nicht nur Q11424. Vergessen, Tabs rauszufiltern? --Magnus Manske (talk) 18:43, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Update: Habe die Typen repariert und neu laufen lassen. --Magnus Manske (talk) 19:25, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Ah, hab mich schon gefragt, was die kryptischen Typen bedeuten. Ich nehme mal, dass die Tabs in den Titeln drin waren und der Typ dann als 4. Spalte einging? Wäre dann wichtig zu wissen für den nächsten Katalog, wie man das verhindern kann. Queryzo (talk) 19:59, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Templator formatting[edit]

Hey Magnus, could you please check out the Templator (Vorlagen-Generator) DE and the reference "Internetquelle"? The column in the middle where all the data goes is really small. It's much large in EN version. Is it possible to fix this? Also could you please have a look at the change request over here? A space is missing between the parameter and the |. Thanks in advance it's a great tool, I use it daily. --Abu-Dun (talk) 08:48, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Oh and would it be possible to make it possible to link to weblinks in the "Explanation and example" ("Beispiel/Kommentar") column? It would be great to get further information to some keywords like ISO 639. Right now the links aren't properly formatted, see Vorlagen-Generator: Internetquelle --Abu-Dun (talk) 08:54, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Neue Kataloge[edit]

Hallo Magnus, wieder zwei neue Kataloge: 293, 294. Hier bitte wieder die Typen korrigieren (293 = "person", 294 = Q11424). Zudem ist mir beim 294 nun doch der Titel "Filmportal Film-IDs" lieber. Daaaanke! Queryzo (talk) 20:54, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Erledigt. --Magnus Manske (talk) 22:11, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Läuft. --Magnus Manske (talk) 09:00, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Korrektur in Mix'n'match bei Merge[edit]

Hallo Magnus, könnte man die Verknüpfung in Mix'n'Match automatisch korrigieren, wenn ein Item gemergt wird? Derzeit ist das mühsame Handarbeit über "Sync", Quick Statements und die Suchfunktion in Mix'n'match. Queryzo (talk) 06:53, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Das wurde sowieso schon automatisch gemacht, aber immer nur für einen zufälligen Teil von mix'n'match. Habe noch was gebaut, das jetzt jeden Tag einmal "hinterherräumt". --Magnus Manske (talk) 23:54, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Hallo Magnus, gestern habe ich wieder ein paar Kataloge mit Episoden eingestellt.

Mix'n'match - same name[edit]

Hi,

is it possible to bring back the same name feature in Mix'n'match? It was really useful and a quick way to add matches. Thanks! --Adam Harangozó (talk) 22:40, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Would Creation candidates serve as a substitute, or is there anything specific about "same name" you are missing? --Magnus Manske (talk) 08:36, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Mix'n'Match ČSFD[edit]

Hello, I tried to import part of movie database and found some issues:

  • Because of no API on the CSFD I made some list from source html and got 300 entries. Is possible to import new entries to this catalog? What if there will be duplicates?
  • Many items from this catalaogue is already matched with WD entries (minimally 250/300), but automatching gives only 150 results and on the rest sometimes is the correct possibility via SPARQL, but sometimes not even if the WD entry already have CSFD ID filled. See [9] vs. [10].

I am trying to import the entire thing now. I believe I can have it auto-update as well. Initial import may take a day or so. --Magnus Manske (talk) 08:35, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
OK, 71587 imported. Didn't get any more (unique) hits from the website, though it seems there are more. --Magnus Manske (talk) 07:24, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
Great! There is another big set - people https://www.csfd.cz/tvurce/%id (P2605), example (WD), can you import this too? JAn Dudík (talk) 07:37, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
Is there a list or search function for people on that site, like there is for movies? Can't see it, and I don't speak cs --Magnus Manske (talk) 07:48, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Mix'n'match importing[edit]

I've been playing around with the Mix'n'match tool (which is amazing, thank you!) and want to try importing some catalogs. Is there a way to import catalogs which do not have unique numerical identifiers? In particular I'm thinking of some internet and print reference works, like The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction or the Encyclopedia of Library History. Thanks.
