COH Challenge[edit]


Thank you for your contribution to the UNESCO Challenge a couple of months ago.

I don't know if you have noticed, but there is a new competition starting tomorrow, that is co-arranged by UNESCO and Wikimedia Sverige – the COH Challenge. This time, the purpose is to get as many of the images uploaded as part of the Connected Open Heritage project (e.g. of world heritage sites, the images can be found here) as possible to be used in Wikipedia articles (however, at most five images – with caption – per article).

I hope you want to participate! :)

WMF Advanced Permissions[edit]

Hey Mike - thanks again for taking the time to maintain Pi bot to update the above. I think, however, that it might be broken; the spreadsheet was added to a few days ago and it has yet to synchronise.

That having been said, I'm very close to finalising the audit, and will be updating the python script to handle the new sheet; I'll make the change direct to your userspace page and flag it in the Phabricator ticket. This will probably be done today, so might be worth waiting and just synching that code on the Pi. Up to you if the fix is worth it!

@JSutherland (WMF): Thanks for the heads-up. There was a character encoding issue, which was a quick fix. I look forward to seeing the new code - do you want me to keep running it after that, or will you run it elsewhere? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 18:45, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Code's updated, now. :) I think for now it'd be ideal if the situation remained the same, but I am happy to look into alternatives if you'd like it taken off your hands. Joe Sutherland (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 20:56, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
OK, I've updated the version of the code that the bot's running, and ran an update, please check the page to make sure everything looks as intended. I'm happy to keep on running it. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 21:01, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Mike - looks like it's skipping the first row (currently Szymon). Figured changing i > 2 to i > 1 would sort that, but I guess not? Joe Sutherland (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 21:13, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Aah, the example line is no longer there. i > 0 (i.e. only skip the 0th line) does the job, it should now be fixed. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 21:17, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Perfect. Thanks so much. Joe Sutherland (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 21:18, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
