??[edit]

My name is not Bud, you can take your whoa and shove it where the sun don't shine and I added two reliable sources, making removal of that tag perfectly legit. Have some respect, ya fukkin jerk! Gtwfan52 (talk) 23:56, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

You have no reason to refer to any user as "Bud", or to say whoa like you are some sort of rulemaker. As you were the one that started the incivility with your rude edit summary, I will be removing your warning, and we can finish this discussion civilly at AfD. You managed to hit two of my hot buttons in the space of three words. You can ask just about anyone, I am not easy to anger. I apologize for my outburst and ask that you show more respect in your edit summaries in the future. Gtwfan52 (talk) 00:18, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
I agree to disagree. I think the two references I added, which took me two minutes to find, are plenty to meet GNG. No, it won't meet NMUSIC, but is a YouTube artist really a musician? I am not a real big fan of the whole YouTube thing, and this is the first time I have ever supported a YouTube-type artist. Two reasons---This kid has got talent...The Killer Queen vid in the Huffington ref was solid work, both in music and video. And the article has been around almost three years already....that somewhat speaks to its utility to Wikipedia. On the civility subject again, I really do apologize...that was quite unlike me. Might I suggest that you keep in mind the lack of visual clues in internet communications and try to stick to less colloquial language to avoid situations like these? I can't know that "Bud" is a normal part of your lexicon and I daresay that there are many people who, without visual clues to the contrary, might take offense at being addressed by a term normally reserved for horses.

Thanks for the friendly message! In the little spare time I have, I've been trying to clean country artists' discographies.

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Need You Now International Album Cover.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Need You Now International Album Cover.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

RE: Harlem Shake (song)[edit]

Thank you for your comment at Talk:Harlem_Shake_(song)#Ownership_of_the_article. Can you please comment on the issue further, because the other editor in question hasnt responded to my explainations in either case when we reverted each other. I keep citing Wikipedia guidelines, and he keeps introducing good-faith, but unconstructive edits. Dan56 (talk) 00:59, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Appreciate your soliciting for opinions, but I dont think Wikiproject talk pages are supposed to be used for that, as it says on the talk page header "For disputes, seek dispute resolution". I've already asked a couple of editors who are experienced in writing and reviewing articles, Status and J Mibulrn (although the latter seems to be offline). I might ask another. Dan56 (talk) 09:35, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
Good morning. :I'm sure it's fine, I've done it and have seen others do it before. The article is in the scope of the WikiProject and broadly asking is neutral, I would personally refrain from asking specific editors because this could be viewed as canvassing. (but that's just me) Cheers NYSMy talk page 12:37, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Neon Trees ft Kaskade Lessons in Love.jpeg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Neon Trees ft Kaskade Lessons in Love.jpeg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 05:02, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Wikidata-logo-en.svg
Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
    • Development
    • Design improvements to the SetClaim API module
    • More work on implementing the simple inclusion syntax that will be 1 way to access Wikidata data on Wikipedia
    • More work on Lua (the second way to access Wikidata data on Wikipedia)
    • Added parser page property to hold entity id in client. This fixes:
      • bugzilla:45037 - don’t show edit link if noexternallanglinks has suppressed all Wikidata links
      • bugzilla:44536 - have the edit link go directly to the Q### pages, instead of Special:ItemByTitle which shall make the link be more reliable and work for all namespaces
    • Selenium tests for deleted-property-handling
    • Selenium tests for multiline references
    • Selenium tests for add-sitelinks-from-client
    • Selenium tests for Entity-Selector-as-Searchbox
    • Selenium tests for language-table
    • Implemented in-process caching for entities
    • Lua support to access the repo data and implement getEntity (so you can use stuff like entity = mw.wikibase.getEntity("Q1459") in Lua modules)
    • rebuildTermSearchKey is now ready for production (this still needs to be run but once done it will make search case-insensitive)
    • Improved error reports from the API
    • Ground work for better edit summaries from the API
    • Added a table of content to item pages
    • Added debug functionality to be able to investigate why it takes longer than it should for Wikidata changes to show up on recent changes and watchlists on Wikipedia
    • Finished implementation of References-UI
    • Implemented GUID generator in JavaScript
    • Worked on fixing a bug related to deleted properties where the UI would display wrong information

Done.[edit]

Eh, I've seen the title without the caps in places as well and either way, there's songs like "TiK ToK" that do not retain their weird stylistic formats on Wikipedia, so the 'all-caps' should be no more than a small one-time mention if it must be brought up at all. The way I see it, it's just a clever, cutesy marketing strategy or something of that nature. It's not like they've capitalized the letters because they stand for something or anything like that anyway. CloversMallRat (talk) 17:30, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Bot is stopped. Investigating.—Kww(talk) 01:31, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Found it. Thanks for the help. It was in an error branch dealing with having a correct-looking chart URL that didn't verify as actually being on Billboard. That's why it was working on most files.—Kww(talk) 01:51, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Wikidata weekly summary #50[edit]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg
Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
  • Development
    • Rolled out new code on wikidata.org. The new stuff you probably care about is:
      • Improved references. They can now have multiple lines. This should make references much more useful. You can now have one reference with for example values for each of the properties "book", "author", "page" to describe one source.
      • Fixed the prev/next links in diff view (bugzilla:45821)
      • d:Special:EntitiesWithoutLabel now lets you filter by language and entity type
    • Widget to add language links on the Wikipedias directly: added setting to enable/disable it per wiki and made it available for logged-in users only
    • Widget to add language links on the Wikipedias directly: improved layout / size
    • Made it so that the “edit links” link on Wikipedia is also shown when the corresponding item only has a link to this one language and no other languages
    • Submitted improved Apache config patch to make wikidata.org always redirect to www.wikidata.org, which is awaiting code review and deployment.
    • Improved the script that is responsible for taking Wikidata changes to the Wikipedias
    • Added a few ways to better debug the script responsible for taking Wikidata changes to the Wikipedias. This should help with investigating why some changes take way to long to show up on the Wikipedias.
    • Started work on automatically adding edited items to the user’s watchlist (according to preferences)
    • Finished script for rebuilding search keys, so we can finally get case insensitive matches in a lot of places
    • Support for multi-line references in diff view
    • Selenium tests for inclusion syntax
    • Improved parser function (that will be used to access Wikidata data on the Wikipedias) to accept property ID or label
    • Increased isolation of data model component to increase clarity and visibility of bad dependencies
    • Worked on schema access in the SQLStore (of the query component)
  • Discussions/Press
  • Events
    • 3rd Media Web Symposium 2013
    • Wikidata trifft Archäologie
    • SMWCon Spring NYC
  • Other Noteworthy Stuff
  • Did you know?
    • When you edit a statement there is a little wheel in front of the text field. This lets you choose between “custom value”, “unknown value” and “no value”. “No value” means that we know that the given property has no value, e.g. Elizabeth I of England had no spouse. “Unknown value” means that the property has a value, but it is unknown which one -- e.g. Pope Linus most certainly had a year of birth, but it is unknown to us.

Wikidata weekly summary #51[edit]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg
Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
  • Development
    • The first 11 Wikipedias can now include data from Wikidata in their articles (If you want to see it in action see the infobox at it:Torino)
    • Worked on automatic summaries for statements
    • Worked on making properties accessible from the client using their label so you can use {{#property:executive director}} instead of {{#property:p169}} for example
    • Made qualifiers ready for the next deployment (Please test. See details further down.)
    • Selenium tests for qualifiers
    • Fixed some issues related to QUnit testing
    • Worked on improved handling and code design of multiple snak lists in the UI (qualifiers, references)
  • Discussions/Press
  • Events
    • Newline 2013
  • Other Noteworthy Stuff
    • We’re currently carefully monitoring performance after the deployment of phase 2 on the first 11 Wikipedias. There seem to be a few small issues. As soon as they are resolved we'll deploy on English Wikipedia. All other Wikipedias are planned to follow very soon after that.
    • Bye and a big thank you to Anja, Silke, Jens and John who are leaving the development team at the end of the month and will work on other cool things. You’ll be missed!
    • Ever had any doubt about the possibilities of Wikidata? Talk to Wiri!
    • We worked on reducing the time it takes for Wikidata edits to show up in the Wikipedias and made some progress. Daniel posted an analysis
    • We started running a script on the database in order to make search on Wikidata case-insensitive. This should be finished in a few days and then search should be more useful.
    • In addition to the above we have rolled out a new search box that suggests items. This should also make finding things on Wikidata a lot easier for you.
    • We’re making some progress with Internet Explorer 8 support but there are a lot of issues with it (some outside our control). It’s unclear at the moment how much we can improve it still without spending an unjustified amount of time on it. You can follow the progress at bugzilla:44228
    • Edits are now auto-confirmed for users with more than 50 edits and account age 4 days: bugzilla:46461
    • Do you need old-style interwiki links for a sister project for example? This is for you
    • The Wikimedia Foundation applied as a mentoring organisation for Google Summer of Code again. We have proposed some Wikidata projects for students to take up if the Foundation is accepted again. At least 2 other organisations that applied also propose Wikidata ideas. More details on that once we know which organisations are accepted.
    • Denny hacked together a tree of life based on data from Wikidata
    • Wikidata was added to wikipulse
    • A template to retrieve data from Wikidata if no local value is set
  • Did you know?
  • Open Tasks for You
    • See note at the end of this weekly summary
    • Help test qualifiers (m:Wikidata/Notes/Data model primer#Qualifiers - see also example statements there) on the test wiki so we can roll it out with the next release
    • Did you file a bug report for Wikidata or did someone else do it for you? Please take a minute to check if it is still valid. (Thanks for filing it btw!)
    • Add some missing descriptions to those items with the same label?
    • Hack on one of these

Could I have 2 mins of your time? As I’ll be working on some other projects for Wikimedia Germany as well from now on the time I can spend on Wikidata will be reduced.

Question[edit]

Can someone help with this file? A lot of us have tried to update Florida as you can see in the file history, but it won't appear. However if you view the full size of the image you can see Florida updated. NYSMy talk page 03:19, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Florida appears the same to me in both the thumbnail and the full version. Have you tried clearing your cache? m.o.p 03:29, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Yes. Florida also looks the same to me in the thumbnail and above the thumbnail on the file page (gray), but when I click the image and view full size it is blue, which doesn't match the current revision. Even if you revert to a revision where Florida is blue it remains gray in the current revision. NYSMy talk page 03:38, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Try viewing the file with a purge appended to it, like this: [9] Other than that, I can't really suggest anything - the image looks as it should to be in both thumbnail and full sizes. m.o.p 04:26, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Are you seeing Florida as gray or blue? It should be blue. NYSMy talk page 04:31, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
As gray. m.o.p 04:46, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Can you go to Commons and switch to a blue revision? NYSMy talk page 04:50, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

So I tried and now it looks weird. It seems that certain resolutions of the file are updating while others remain stuck. I assume it's related to this recent bug - for now, your only recourse is to wait and see if our techs can iron things out. m.o.p 05:28, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks B NYSMy talk page 05:36, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
I assume it's the same issue as bugzilla:46976 but so far I miss information here which exact thumbnail (size!) the problem happens with in order to investigate. Feel free to add a comment with exact steps to reproduce to that bug report. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 22:56, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
I'm not familiar with this technical stuff, but right now the image is showing correctly at List_of_supporters_of_same-sex_marriage_in_the_United_States#U.S._Senators, but when you click the image it is stuck at/showing the revision from 17:35, 2 April 2013. That's all I can really say. NYSMy talk page 01:22, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Wikidata weekly summary #52[edit]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg
Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
  • Development
    • The first year is over. Thank you everyone for being amazing and helping to build Wikidata and making it more than we could possibly have hoped for already. <3
    • Put a lot of work into improved support for Internet Explorer 8
    • Worked on improving recent changes code in client
    • Finished valueview refactoring. Created new extension “ValueView”
    • Implemented string formatter
  • Discussions/Press
  • Events
    • upcoming: GLAM-Wiki 2013
  • Other Noteworthy Stuff
    • Deployment of phase 2 on English Wikipedia is currently planned for April 8. The remaining Wikipedias are scheduled for April 10. As usual this might change if we run into problems along the way.
    • There is now a page showing the current lag for changes propagating to the Wikipedias so they can show up in watchlists and recent changes for example. This should ideally be in the range of a few minutes. Right now it is higher because of some abnormally high bot activity but decreasing. Should be down to a few minutes soon.
    • There’s now a badge you can add to Wikipedia articles to indicate there is data about it on Wikidata
    • We hit Q10000000
    • A Wikidata item in the wild ;-)
  • Did you know?
  • Open Tasks for You

Based on feedback for last week’s call for comments we will continue this newsletter. However more community help will be needed. From now on they’ll be drafted at d:Wikidata:Status updates/Next and your help is very welcome.

Wikidata weekly summary #53[edit]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg
Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
  • Development
    • Got some external professional review of our code and architecture and started working on their feedback
    • Worked on reducing the dispatch lag (the time it takes for changes on Wikidata to be sent to the Wikipedias for display in watchlist, recent changes and to purge affected pages)
    • Worked on using Redis for job queue to improve the lag situation even further
    • Created new Wikibase Query extension for phase 3 functionality
    • Autocomments & Autosummaries for SetClaim module
    • Worked on the GeoCoordinate parser
  • Events/Press
    • right now: GLAM-WIKI 2013
  • Discussions
  • Other Noteworthy Stuff
    • Deployment of phase 2 on the remaining Wikipedias was delayed because of a high lag of changes being propagated to the Wikipedias. The lag has been reduced considerably now and is going down even more. The new date for deployment will not be next week because there are other large changes on Wikimedia infrastructure scheduled that we do not want to interfere with. It will hopefully happen very soon after that though.
    • Next code update on wikidata.org is planned for Wednesday. This should include qualifiers and bugfixes.
    • There will probably be a short outage/read-only for wikidata.org on Tuesday (database is being switched to MariaDB)
    • If you're a student and interested in coding on Wikidata consider applying for Google Summer of Code.
    • There is a new user right: property creators
    • There is now a page to request deletion of a property
    • We now have Bureaucrats
    • Reasonator was improved and extended (1 2)
  • Open Tasks for You

Based on feedback for last week’s call for comments we will continue this newsletter. However more community help will be needed. From now on they’ll be drafted at d:Wikidata:Status updates/Next and your help is very welcome.

Orphaned non-free media (File:We come running.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:We come running.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:14, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Play ontour.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Play ontour.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged.
