Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania[edit]

Note to self and anyone else interested.

Category:Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania should it be a portal too? If yes, we really need a means to autopopulate (minor) portals so we do not have do lots of work in that space.

If it is not, we need to look to adapt {{authority control}} so it can be utilised with arbitrary access to WD so AC can be filled on such a page. — billinghurst sDrewth 06:26, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Move template data to WD[edit]

Category:Pages using authority control with parameters has pages with {{authority control}} data that should be housed on the WD page of the item. Look to set to utilise PLbot to move the data to WD, save some queries on its use and set up tracking. Need to be a good lad and set up fully-fledged maintenance pages. Oh for more time! — billinghurst sDrewth 06:31, 20 April 2017 (UTC) import[edit]

Run bot through Index:Appletons' Cyclopædia of American Biography (1900, volume 1).djvu and others in series IIIIIIIVVVIVII

to extract text layers. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:36, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

header WP links and the use of main subject at WD[edit]

have a check to see that where we have (encyclopaedic) pages in main namespace that link wikipedia = through header, that these items at wikidata may or may not have "main subject" wikilink. Can or should we be pulling that link via WD to manage deleted and moved items, and also be prepared for any item that has a future wp link. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:35, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Category:Authors with missing death dates -> Category:Authors without death dates[edit]

explore making this change. They are not missing if they are not dead, so we should cater for both scenarios without confusing things. Only would be missing of the person is alive 130 years after death. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:43, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Contributing translator -> header template[edit]

(parking) See if we should plug in a parameter so something like Popular Science Monthly/Volume 3/September 1873/Hypnotism in Animals I can properly represent the translator. Otherwise we can have it as a note as we do for {{illustrator}}. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:38, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Strip first page[edit]

Hi. I finally have some time for the bot deleting/whitening the first djvu page. The idea is that a template in placed on the File page to fix and a bot similar to archiveBot finds the pages, downloads the file, fixes it and re-uploads it. The idea is that wikisource-bot runs it. Few questions. - Does it have a bot flag on Commons?
- Would you mind defining the template & params?
- which actions shall we allow (IMHO no point in just whitening, for new works deleting is most interesting)
- once above is sorted out we can do a few tests locally
What do you think?— Mpaa (talk) 20:30, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Permission is required to run the bot, though not a requirement to have a flag c:Commons:Bots. I don't see that this is a problem, and I am happy to put that proposal to the Commons community.
  • I am a "keep it simple stupid person", I am just seeing that we are wanting to replace a page, for me enhancing it to me runs the risk of fouling the image<->text alignment. I also see that doing it this way stops much malicious use of someone repeatedly snipping front pages. So not sure we need parameters.
  • as the function of IAupload being able to remove the front page, I not particularly inclined to get overly fussed about new files
Where the heck are our previous discussions and work on this, I cannot find them through the archives. I cannot even find the list of files that I prepared which needed the front page removed. Clearly I a useless tonight. I cannot even find where we did the tests in our file: ns. — billinghurst sDrewth 10:58, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
Worked out how to find it. Wikisource:Scriptorium/Archives/2017-03#Task proposal for Wikisource-botbillinghurst sDrewth 11:02, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
Can find files at Commons pretty easily c:special:search/"this is a digital copy of a book". Less easy here at that search doesn't work. We do have a good start list at User:Wikisource-bot/Lead google page
OK, I forgot about this discussion. I have created {{blank djvu cover}} at Commons.— Mpaa (talk) 21:49, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

AWB run[edit]

Why are you removing alt text? Please use {{ping}} if you respond here. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:23, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

@Koavf: When removing images and relying on the best image from WD, the alt text cannot be certain to align with the image. If we need something like that, then we will need to get it from WD by the legend component. Apart from that ... COI. Also note that AWB is just the tool here, it is all manual as I need to check for image presence, so I am reviewing every change, so this was a purposeful choice. — billinghurst sDrewth 04:23, 27 May 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, if I misunderstand you but you're saying that you deliberately removed alt text? Are you doing that en masse and not replacing it? —Justin (koavf)TCM 05:34, 27 May 2018 (UTC)
It is quite unusual for us to use alt text, it was primarily done where we had a group shoot to identify individuals. — billinghurst sDrewth 10:38, 27 May 2018 (UTC)
If you'll permit an interjection, I don't expect we'll ever get alt text from wikidata, because alt text is supposed to capture the intent of including the image in a given textual context. There's a good visual example at w:WP:MOSALT that postulates using a picture of the Queen of England in a fashion article, with alt text "An elderly woman wearing a black hat". Hesperian 05:45, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
Alt? Oh, I thought he was meaning "image_caption". Duh! Thanks Hesperian. Koavf: there is not even an alt parameter in {{author}} so stop trying to add it. Why do we even have to go around this roundabout, you should be able to read the doc page as well as me? — billinghurst sDrewth 07:56, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
We should have alt text for all images for Web accessibility. Why wouldn't we? —Justin (koavf)TCM 02:24, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
If we wish to fill alt, it IMNSHO should pick up the default caption as the alt text, or image_caption where used, and if we ever get to update the WD call, it should use media legend. — billinghurst sDrewth 08:02, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
Alt text and captions serve two different purposes. Captions supplement an image and alt text replaces it. —Justin (koavf)TCM 04:41, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
It is known. — billinghurst sDrewth 04:48, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Tech News: 2018-22[edit]

12:40, 29 May 2018 (UTC)


I’m finished with the Swift 19-volume set. Over the last 5 years (my anniversary was two days ago) I have touched each of the 8600 pages at least twice, and many of them several times, as I learned how to create legible text out of codes. While I learned a lot from the Wikisource Help pages, I couldn’t have completed the volumes without the help of Greek and Latin experts, someone who created a beautiful piece of sheet music (at the end of volume 16), and several (many?) persons who helped with columns and margins and other fancy page layouts. My biggest thanks, though, are reserved for Beeswaxcandle (talk), Hesperian, billinghurst sDrewth, —Maury (talk), and EncycloPetey (talk) – all of you have been incredible with your help and encouragement!

I’m not sure what I’ll tackle next. It may be something fun (are any of Mark Twain’s works waiting?) or other early 18th century works (I might as well continue to use the huge data base of links to people and works of the era). For today, though, I am sending Swift out to the future, hoping that people will once again remember him for more than Gulliver.
Susanarb (talk) 05:15, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

@Susanarb: aw shucks. What you have produced is truly magnificent, though I do think that you need to add your work to Template:new texts and show it off to the world. Things like this need to be showcased! Have we also got all these works plugged into Wikidata. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Shimmy on the inside, job well done. — billinghurst sDrewth 07:24, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Abuse filters[edit]

Hey! I've reworked all the filters that needed obvious improvements. I added comments explaining the changes. I've also got the stale filter bot task running, you can view the report at User:MusikBot/StaleFilters/Report. Some of those haven't been tripped in a long time, so you might consider disabling them. I have the offset (number of days after which to consider a filter stale) set to 6 months. Also note the number of stale filters is written to User:MusikBot/StaleFilters/Total. On enwiki we show this at MediaWiki:Abusefilter-status, so that you can easily see what needs tending to at the top of Special:AbuseFilter. The code would be something like:

There {{plural:{{User:MusikBot/StaleFilters/Total}}|is|are}} [[User:MusikBot/StaleFilters/Report|{{User:MusikBot/StaleFilters/Total}} stale {{plural:{{User:MusikBot/StaleFilters/Total}}|filter|filters}}]] with no hits in the past {{User:MusikBot/StaleFilters/Offset}} days ({{purge}})


There are 4 stale filters with no hits in the past 180 days (Purge)

On two JavaScript tools[edit]

Hi, regarding your unused image administration issue as of phab:T195188 and ResultListSort gadget some input below.

  • MediaWiki:Gadget-ResultListSort.js
    • The gadget tests the namespace first, and if not Special: immediately terminates.
    • You might save user resources by providing the following clause:
if ( mw.config.get( "wgNamespaceNumber" )  ===  -1 ) {
  • dependencies
    • Well, they don’t help much, but don’t do any harm.
    • If the gadget decides that it shall start real work it will request them anyway and wait if necessary.
    • As you probably know the effect of the declaration of dependencies= is that those modules will be provided as one single package collected for the entire page rather than transferred in pieces via network, which saves overhead for single requests and deliveries.
      • user,user.options − mandatory part of every page, registered or anonymous
      • mediawiki.util − required on certainly all pages somewhere; very popular
      • mediawiki.user − most probably already requested in many pages, for banner advertising and various other purposes
    • The only effect might be that the initial execution of the gadget is slightly postponed.

You might try the following fairy thing:

if ( mw.config.get( "wgCanonicalSpecialPageName" )  ===  "Blankpage"   &&
     mw.config.get( "wgTitle" ).indexOf( "/filesMetaData" )  >  0 ) {
  • Then visit Special:Blankpage/filesMetaData and wait a little while.
  • It just jumped off the egg, is pure BETA and has no documentation yet but will explain itself.
  • During the next months I am going to complete that,

Internet is up and running at our new location. Who might know what works I am legally able to upload/edit at the English Wikisource from our current non-US location? Not sure if that is even a consideration. Any insight? Londonjackbooks (talk) 12:54, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

Who knows where you are, and could prove it anyway? If you use the IA-upload tool, are you even uploading a work, or is it a bot just doing it in your name US -> US. Of academic interest only IMNSHO. — billinghurst sDrewth 15:15, 2 June 2018 (UTC)
Ok. Sounds good. Thanks. Londonjackbooks (talk) 17:08, 2 June 2018 (UTC)
That is, if I explained my question sufficiently. For example, my question is with regard to copyright law in certain countries... not with regard to identity. How do I know what laws to follow with regard to uploading/editing of works? How would I know/find out? Londonjackbooks (talk) 17:14, 2 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes, that was my reply. If you are uploading local works to your location, then maybe, maybe we should explore this. In 90 days the only data that will sit beside your upload is your account name and data that you add to the edit. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:22, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks for clarifying. Londonjackbooks (talk) 04:41, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
For instance, am I able to continue editing Index:Lisbon and Cintra, Inchbold, 1907.djvu while in Portugal? The book was published in London in 1907; author died in 1939. Or even Index:The Muse in Arms, Osborn (ed), 1917.djvu (also pub London, 1917). At your leisure, I realize it is late there. No hurries on an answer, and feel free to pass my questions off to someone else :) Londonjackbooks (talk) 13:18, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Laurence Eusden[edit]

On en.WP there is a portrait w:File:Eusden.JPG marked as a candidate for transfer to Commons. If this image meets the requirements, could you help transwiki the image? Eusden is the only poet laureate in the current PotM whose Author page is lacking an image. (No, I can't do this myself. I've looked over the suggested process and can't get it to cooperate with my Mac. --EncycloPetey (talk) 17:12, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

Never mind. Since the image didn't originate with the uploader and has no source information there, I'll just upload directly rather than transwiki it. --EncycloPetey (talk) 21:19, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

There is no import ability for images, you can import the page (file data), though not the image. For images you have to use the image transfer processes which are typically Toolforge bots. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:27, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
I did import c:File:John Beames civil servant in British India, author.jpg from enWP. The imported file included the image and original upload log. Hrishikes (talk) 03:13, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
Terminology difference, that was transferred, not imported. Transfer is using third party tool, import is via Special:import. — billinghurst sDrewth 03:43, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

This shouldn't be needed except in places like Header template. For linking text within a page, there is not reason for it. You might want to check whatever script you're running. --EncycloPetey (talk) 20:22, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Media legend and alt text[edit]

We've had a couple of people ask about "alt" text for images. While it makes no sense for us to add such things here, there is a solution I think. Since we're taking images (usually) from Wikidata now, could we pull the "alt" text from the English media legend, if it exists? Then, people who favor alt text would be encouraged to add a short description at Wikidata rather than here, and everyone would benefit. Is this worthwhile, do you think? --EncycloPetey (talk) 23:21, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

There is a conversation above about it with Koavf and Hesperian making comment. I wasn't going to be having that sort of policy-setting sort of conversation here, though happy to have comment. Putting in alt= text is easy technically, it becomes the conversation about what we do. To keep it simple, I would suggest that if it is imperative for something that we implement alt={{PAGENAME}} as a base within {{author}}, and then if there is some consensus on more, then we look to how that happens. — billinghurst sDrewth 23:36, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Joseph Tom Burgess[edit]

Thanks for helping with spelling errors. Clarke was a bad one, imo.

I can see that there must have been a problem with Author:Joseph Tom Burgess, because you were able to move it. What I can't see is what the problem was. A weird space maybe? --RaboKarbakian (talk) 22:48, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

@RaboKarbakian: Joesph. If you need to see the detail you can look in the page's history and/or the move log. Otherwise <shrug> it happens to all of us (been there done that, that dratted typoing gets me), it is why we have an open system, processes of review, and understanding that it is our shared system. As you probably have noted, getting the authors organised is a bit of a passion. — billinghurst sDrewth 22:54, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes, you are really good. Crazy good, maybe. I actually decided that it would be easier to tackle the TOC Module than try to match or even begin to keep up with you--and I usually enjoy and don't back down from a challenge.
I did check the log. I cut and pasted and compared them on a text editor which was armed with a monotone font, all before bothering you. (Billinghurst moved page Author:Joesph Tom Burgess to Author:Joseph Tom Burgess.... I could find nothing, though I know it is there.--RaboKarbakian (talk) 23:02, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
I think that it is great what you are doing, and you are learning our quirks well. Please don't shy away, as there is so much that needs doing, and getting it 80-100% there is waaaaaay better than not attempting anything. It is a wiki, and we incrementally improve it. And to note that I am still fixing some of the errors from the late 2000s from pages I created then. smileybillinghurst sDrewth 23:38, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Tweetdeck access on mobile?[edit]

I would assume not, due to its complex nature, but is there no way that you know of to access Tweetdeck on mobile? I've only wished to do so on a couple occasions in the past, so it is not an imperative. Londonjackbooks (talk) 06:51, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Supposedly you can do it from the existing Twitter app if you believe something like this page, however, I don't get those options. @Samwilson: are you accessing through android or iphone app? — billinghurst sDrewth 07:45, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I can get to Tweetdeck's login page, but once I log in, it takes me straight to my Twitter account with no access to other accounts. Thanks for checking :) Will wait to hear anything from Samwilson. Londonjackbooks (talk) 07:58, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
@Londonjackbooks, @Billinghurst: No, I've not figured out how to do anything with multiple accounts from mobile. I just use Tweetdeck on desktop. Sam Wilson 00:45, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. Hmm, @Peteforsyth: You seem to wear many hats at Twitter, do you have any idea? Londonjackbooks (talk) 05:06, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

Been there, and it says

… Once a part of a Team, Twitter for iOS and Android users can tweet, Direct Message, Like and Retweet from a Team account using the main Twitter mobile app.

and in the app, from the authorised account @billinghurstwik I get no visualisation of @wikisource_en. From tweetdeck, all is good. Where it says

Can I use Teams outside of TweetDeck?

Yes, you can Tweet, Direct Message, like, or Retweet from a team account from the Twitter for iOS or Android apps.

I have an absolute blank on how that works. I cannot fathom it, and that has become three of us. I cannot see how I add it, as looking up accounts takes passwords. <shrug> — billinghurst sDrewth 02:29, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
