I have nominated Paul Kane for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here.--Jarodalien (talk) 07:23, 20 March 2014 (UTC)


Hi Lupo, how much do you know about {{ImageNote}}? I'm asking because you edited the template on Wikipedia before, but it doesn't seem to be working here. Comparing the code of the template with that on Commons, the and tags are used differently. I'm wondering if that's why it's not working. But there's also an extra line of code

{{#ifeq:{{{id|{{{1}}}}}}|1|<!-- -->{{Iffile|1={{ImageNote/header}}}}<!-- -->}}

I'm not sure what it does, but maybe it needs to be added. The page is protected at the moment because it's used by a gadget (I don't know which one), so I was hoping someone else might know how to make it work. Nev1 (talk) 23:02, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

  1. The added stuff you quoted above, which is present at the Commons, is just about template documentation.
  2. The template is not intended to be used manually.
  3. It's used by the ImageAnnotator gadget that was never enabled here. It was installed once for evaluation purposes.

Lupo 07:27, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

I manually added an annotation to a file on Wikipedia by copying the wikicode from Commons. If I changed the noinclude/includeonly tags, would it start working? Nev1 (talk) 17:13, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
I don't think so, even if the gadget were enabled. For files that actually reside at the Commons, the gadget uses the descriptions defined at the Commons. You don't have to copy them over. If you had chosen a file that existed locally and enabled the gadget, then it should work. However, you could then also use the gadget to add the note in the first place. (The gadget would basically make an identical edit.) If you want to play with that gadget, please read the help pages here and at the Commons. (I hope it still works here; I haven't updated the installation here in a long time.) Lupo 22:17, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
In fact, I just tried, and of course it didn't work anymore here. I've updated it now, and it works again. If you enable the gadget in your user.js, you should see image notes at File:Spelterini Blüemlisalp.jpg and also at File:MacLellan's Castle 20080422 - entrance.jpg. And apparently I misremembered about local notes. The gadget does take the note from the local file description page. Frankly said, I'm not sure if this is a bug... I thought it would take those from the Commons. Lupo 22:37, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
It is a bug. Since the gadget does not allow adding notes for remote files, it should also ignore any notes on a local description page of a remote file and should only take those from the remote description. Lupo 08:50, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Lonzo content[edit]

This is my own work, which I uploaded it myself from the photo album.......... And thats my account on that page you linked, like where it comes from.... I have every proof... thank you... — Preceding unsigned comment added by OGmuthafkkinDoc (talkcontribs) 12:27, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

I presume this is about c:File:The Word Class Wreckin' Cru on tour in 1988..jpg. First, complain at the Commons about image deletions that happen at the Commons. Second, the link I gave is just some fanpix site; that just shows that it's copied from the Internet, it doesn't say that site had any rights to that image. Third, if you can prove that you are the photographer of that picture, send your proof via OTRS. Lupo 12:53, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Winter service vehicle-tehran.jpg[edit]

Hello dear Lupo. Please to see you. I suppose something wrong's been happened. the picture Winter service vehicle-tehran.jpg is already taken by me so I'm its owner. The speedy deletion tag must be removed from my work. Thanks. Milad Mosapoor 09:57, 08 May 2014 (UTC)

Nonsense. That was an image already published, and it showed a snow blower at Whistler Mountain, not Teheran. The image came from [1], photo: Mitch Winton / Lupo 04:34, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Capitan Swan Puzzle (presented within KLM Airline for children).jpg[edit]

Hi again, I also added a new trademark tag for the image about the KLM puzzle. Milad Mosapoor 10:08, 08 May 2014 (UTC)

It's got nothing to do with trademarks. The image shown by that puzzle itself is copyrighted and even bears a copyright mark. So a photo of that puzzle can be published under a free license only if the copyright holder formally agrees. Lupo 04:31, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Mawejjederrick's uploads[edit]

Mr Lupo i wanted to discuss with you a bout the issues concerning copy right, because all the images i upload on artcles like one for Radababa article are under CC BY-SA 3.0, so i wish they are not deleted because they provide a clear description of the an article — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mawejjederrick (talkcontribs) 10:16, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

This is about c:Special:Log/Mawejjederrick. You upload images taken from any number of websites. None of these web sites indicate any free license for these images. In general, images you can find on the Internet are all copyrighted, all rights reserved, unless there is an explicit mention of a free license. See c:COM:NETCOPYRIGHT. Lupo 10:29, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Why are my uploads flagged and others on the same page aren't?[edit]

Mr Lupo, why does my picture keep getting flagged but the others of games get to stay? Holland9 (talk) 14:54, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Which others? Point me to them, and I'll take them down, too, if they are copyright violations. Lupo 15:33, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

User:Eagman1/Jan Estrada[edit]

Sorry to bring up something after so long, but did you conclude that this Villa player is a hoax or fantasy? Rankersbo (talk) 07:02, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes. See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jan Estrada. Lupo 15:13, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your helpless words. Now, I think, the aim could be reached! Alles Gute für Sie von "Prädikat" aus Deutschland. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Prädikat (talkcontribs) 13:57, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

(for bystanders: this is about File:Musiker und Komponist Walter Wachsmuth, Braunschweig 1910.jpg; see commons:User talk:Prädikat) I do hope you meant "helpful". Lupo 14:52, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Photograph of Fusilier Lee Rigby[edit]

With respect to the page Murder of Lee Rigby, The Photograph of Fusilier Lee Rigby has the incorrect copyright attribution and is not a UK Crown Copyright photograph and therefore is not available under the Open Government Licence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by UKMinistryofDefence (talkcontribs) 09:55, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Maybe so. As one can see at the archived original source, the MOD stated "All content is available under the Open Government Licence, except where otherwise stated", and there was no statement that the image was copyrighted by somebody else. Looks like the MOD has now taken down the image pending a resolution of a copyright claim by a photographer[2]. Further discussions at commons:Commons:Deletion requests/File:Drummer Lee Rigby.jpg.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Proposed deletion of Jack (flag)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Jack (flag) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No sources whatsoever, and not enough substantive content to merit being a distinct page from maritime flags.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Montreux Jazz Festival 1986 (poster).png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Montreux Jazz Festival 1986 (poster).png. 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.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 02:57, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Error in your LAPI.js script[edit]

Hi Lupo. I have recently turned on the gadget ImageAnnotator in my preferences, and I now get an annoying javascript warning in my console about "unreachable code after return statement" on every single page load. I have tracked down the error to the currentStyle function in the LAPI.DOM section. In that function you include a return statement followed by a newline and then what you expected to return:

      if (property == 'cssFloat') property = 'float';
        element.ownerDocument.defaultView.getComputedStyle (element, null).getPropertyValue (property);

I assume you know this, but in case you didn't, you cannot add a line break after a return call, even if there is no semicolon ending the line. The parser is set up to basically make semicolons optional, so a line break after a return just ends the line automatically, and the next line is not executed; the script just returns silently without a value. I believe this is what is causing the warning to show up in my console, and the way to fix it would be to simply remove the line break there. Would you be willing to do that? Thanks!--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 23:20, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Good catch! Fixed this and a second occurrence of the same problem. Lupo 18:48, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! I'm no longer getting the warning on every page load!--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 19:15, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Lupo. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
