Non-free images in portalsEdit

The recent run of JJMC89 bot seems to have found lots of non-free images being used in portals. I've looked at a few of these and they were being transcluded into the portals in some way. Most of the corresponding portal pages don't seem to have been edited in some time and I'm not sure why the bot is just finding the files now. Do you think anyone might have tweaked some portal-related template in someway that is suddenly causing these files to be transcluded or is it just a case of then finally being noticed. I've correct a few of these by adding <noinclude> syntax to the articles where the files' were being used, but I'm never sure if this is the best way to try and "fix" this. Perhaps there's a better way involving the templates transcluding these files to get them to stop adding non-free files to portals. Maybe there's something in the Wikidata of the file pages that can be used to let the templates know not to do this? -- Marchjuly (talk) 23:58, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

They were all probably transclusions from the articles. This edit should have fixed the issue. — JJMC89 22:53, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for checking on this. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:50, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Category:Deaths from the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in IndianaEdit

Why was this category not moved to Category:Deaths from the COVID-19 pandemic in Indiana? Only this category was missing. --Francisco (talk) 18:15, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

It looks like Fayenatic london missed it when processing. — JJMC89 22:41, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for tracing that; I apologise for causing the extra work. This is now being processed. – Fayenatic London 07:14, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

Quick note on Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/PKHilliamEdit

Thanks for your edits to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/PKHilliam.

Now I am confused. Do you want me to supply more diffs or what? Basically, PKHilliam would unilaterally change links from to I wanted to act fast before this case becomes stale, but I can provide more evidence if needed. :) Aasim 05:42, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

For example, if I could explain, here is a diff with the edit summary "POV pushing", and here is a diff by one of the (now blocked) socks saying "Please stop pushing your unauthorized fork". This diff uses Twinkle, this diff also uses Twinkle. Not to mention, these diffs unilaterally and without consensus change the "official site" from .co to .ca. This is no longer a problem because the page is XCON protected now and I got consensus on the talk page to include both forks on the Uncyclopedia article. Oh, and these diffs are functionally identical, I just realized taking a second look. These all seem like red flags. Should I open another report or is this enough behavioral evidence to suggest sockpuppetry or meatpuppetry? Aasim 06:00, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
The diffs that you included in the SPI report are both from Romartus Imperator, therefore they don't connect that account to any other. That aside, Romartus Imperator was already reported in the SPI case; see the archives. On looking into it, the 08 May 2020 report was closed without a behavioral investigation for some reason. I've reopened your report quoting the evidence provided here. — JJMC89 06:31, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
JJMC89, thank you. Have a nice day. :) Aasim 06:36, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

Category:Hospitals in ParanáEdit

In addition, please move Category:Hospitals in Paraná to Category:Hospitals in Paraná (state), like other subcategories in Category:Paraná (state). Thanks. --Francisco (talk) 17:24, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

You need to follow the process outlined at WP:CFD. — JJMC89 04:18, 30 May 2020 (UTC)


This bot is repeatedly removing an image from the page VanossGaming even after it was resized to match the Wikipedia guidelines. The image being removed is File:EvanFong.png. Delta fiver (talk) (UTC) 07:15, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

It was automatically removed because it does not have a non-free use ratinale. Even if it did have one, a free photo could be taken, so it is replaceable. — JJMC89 08:13, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

Millian subpage in private userspaceEdit

@JJMC89: please restore my subpage. That was not ready to become an article, and I use it for research. I want it restored, with the history. This (User:Codyave/sandbox) is the page to redirect, not mine. -- Valjean (talk) 22:45, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

Please fix this. -- Valjean (talk) 22:11, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

IP talk page abuseEdit

Hey JJMC89, hope you are well! Would it be possible to revoke talk page access for 2601:181:4580:4EF0:0:0:0:0/64 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RBLs · block user · block log)? There are IPs continuing to add non-free content to their talk page after your block. Thanks! -- LuK3 (Talk) 02:55, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

Interlanguage image linkingEdit

Hi JJMC89, I want to know how to add an image hosted on non-English Wikipedia to English Wikipedia articles. Thank you TheBirdsShedTears (talk) 08:02, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) Hi TheBirdsShedTears. Only files uploaded to Wikimedia Commons (these are called global files) or files uploaded to English Wikipedia (these are called called local files) can be added to English Wikipedia articles; files uploaded locally to other language Wikipedias cannot not be added to English Wikipedia articles and be displayed. They might be able to be add as an WP:EL or a Template:interlanguage link, but they will not be displayed. — Marchjuly (talk) 09:15, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

Cleaning up after JJMC89 bot IIIEdit

Working on pages in red-linked categories I've come across a few such as Category:Television season articles that use custom fields where JJMC89 bot III has moved the category (and changed a template?) but the articles have been left behind. I assume that one is like Category:Infobox television season articles that use the season name parameter where just working through the articles giving each of them a WP:NULLEDIT was enough to push them into the new category. I don't suppose it would be possible to have the bot check for these kind of left-behinds and give them a null edit to push them on their way? Although they do generally get there in the end they still end up on the Special:WantedCategories backlog and there seem to be a few (I don't think from your bot so far) which get "stuck" for weeks if not months. TIA. Oh, and I've just noticed Category:Eloise looks like another one. Le Deluge (talk) 15:37, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Moving Category:Daimler to Category:Daimler Company per Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/SpeedyEdit

@JJMC89: I wonder if you might be able to help me. I can find no record associated with this edit comment left by your bot, here. Thank you, Eddaido (talk) 04:30, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
