Bulk renaming v2[edit]

In Category:ZM157 (aircraft), please rename all files to "F-35B Lightning II ZM157 ..." This is to correct misleading titles. The F-35A version is not being used by the Royal Air Force. See also for this particular aircraft. De728631 (talk) 19:32, 23 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hospitals photographed in 2021[edit]

all files in today category must belonging to Category:Hospitals in Ukraine photographed in 2021. Please, do this with a bot Albedo (talk) 12:22, 12 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Albedo: What "today category"? Who uploaded the photos? Why does Category:Hospitals in Ukraine photographed in 2021 not exist yet?   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 12:26, 12 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dictionnaire raisonné du mobilier français de l’époque carlovingienne à la Renaissance[edit]

All the files in Category:Dictionnaire raisonné du mobilier français de l’époque carlovingienne à la Renaissance, tome 6 have names that are just 06-###.png, which is not useful; they should at least include the name of the book from which the images were taken. (Ideally, they'd have properly descriptive names instead of just serial numbers, but that's more than can be done in bulk.) There's a parallel problem for the category that has all the images from volume 5. The category for volume 1 does not have this problem, as its files are properly named; volumes 2, 3, and 4 have not had their images extracted as of this posting.

Thus, for instance, "File:06-016.png" should be "File:Dictionnaire raisonné du mobilier français de l’époque carlovingienne à la Renaissance, tome 6 - 016.png". If someone could implement this, that would be most helpful. Some filenames are of the form "06-###a.png" or "06-###b.png" or similar; this would need to be taken into account.

The 411 .PNGs from Volume 5 and the 325 .PNGs from Volume 6 are all in use on User:Edempure/gallery; if those replacements were all done at once, instead of automatically editing that gallery page 736 times, that would probably also be useful. (Easiest method I can see would be to do a global search-and-replace on the wikitext for Edempure's page before doing the bulk renames. Edempure won't mind, as they've been inactive since 2009.)

Thank you in advance. DS (talk) 19:03, 18 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello, I'm a patroller and license reviewer. I came across instance where I can see upload from YouTube with Template:YouTube CC-BY doesn't have a correspondent License/YouTube review template in file description, which help admins/reviewer to recognise if the file is suitable for commons or not. So, I request a bot/scripts to fetch files which are missing review template, because YouTube videos are removed shortly and it's hard to determine any change of license or if video was actually licensed CC during upload.

Sharing few instances below :-

Time within a video is also helpful for each screenshot extracted from that video. Pinging @Kalbhag, GorillaWarfare as uploaders.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 18:24, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Timestamp advice noted for future reference. I uploaded the Loomer screenshot over a year ago so I have no idea what the timestamp would have been, but she's in front of the same background and wearing the same top throughout if you need to confirm that it's from that video. In the meantime, I've added {{YoutubeReview}} so a third-party reviewer can verify. GorillaWarfare (she/her • talk) 18:34, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Jeff G. and GorillaWarfare: , May be I wasn't able to convey myself appropriately above. I was saying that the examples which I shared above are not just 2/fews uploads only, that if it caught your eyes you will add review template and mark the file as reviewed or tag it for deletion. My concern was I was investigating user who were having YouTube upload but no review template, and the number is pretty high more than 100+, sadly I lost the bookmark. If you use this {{From YouTube}} in your upload, their is an archive features which doesn't work well all the time. Timestamp will only help if we have the YouTube link working. Lastly, Pinging @AntiCompositeNumber has a bot running for upload with missing license. If something like these comes up for this incidents that would be great.

  • As discussed with C1K98V on IRC, this seems to be a valid and current issue we are facing where users forget or do not know about the requirements for license review. --Minorax«¦talk¦» 10:09, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I think it is a good idea to check for files from YouTube without a review. But I tried to do a query on (I can't copy the usual "Link to a pre-filled form for the query you just ran with and without auto-run." for some reason) and I got 54539 results! It seems there are a lot of possible things to sort out. For example if there is a VRTS or if the file is PD-old etc. So to do it we need someone to do a lot of work before we can start up a bot. --MGA73 (talk) 14:49, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Idea of a location-based categorisation bot[edit]

just an idea, not a request. it'd be great if the global map is entirely divided into smaller pieces (as precise as the level of cities/counties), then a bot adds categories based on coord data available on some old files in "Category:Media needing categories as of...". for example, coord shows File:-i---i- (27936399264).jpg was taken in Béni Mellal-Khénifra. a human can do this job but honestly this is just a mechanical task which a bot is capable of. this bot-added cat would serve as a first step for users to sort the files further down the cat tree.

Creators with Wikidata items[edit]

A bot (or bots) has carelessly added (example: [1]) to many of my files a structured data "creator" property with the value and qualifiers:

While these may be strictly true, there is a Wikidata item (d:Q15136093) which better represents me.

The same occurs for other contributors.

Can a bot resolve this, for my files and others'?

At the very least this should look (in my case) like:

but removing the qualifiers (optionally retaining "author name string") may be better. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 14:26, 24 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
