Improve image copyright notice on error pages
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Navigating to an invalid page such as https://wikipedialibrary.wmflabs.org/users/update/1111/ provides an error message (in this case Permission Denied) along with a cute picture. The image metadata doesn't currently contain the image license version.

  • CC BY should be CC BY 2.0

Original task
An end-user choosing to go to https://wikipedialibrary.wmflabs.org/users/update/$$$$/ where $$$$ is anything other than his own-numID; gets denied very rightfully.

I have no idea as to why the messages and the random photograph are displayed in a left-aligned manner, which creates a huge amount of white-space on the right side and is severely unimpressive. Please center-align the display. Center-align is advises against in case of paragraphs et al, but here it's perfectly suitable and soothing for the eye. The design team may be further consulted.

At any case, the attribution of the photograph is implemented in an equally ugly box. Even importantly, vital data is missing. I was shown [https://flic.kr/p/6wL7Sc this photograph] and the box below contained:-crunchie needs a little tin cup by frankieleon, on Flickr; CC BY No clue where the 2.0 went. The non-capitalization of the starting letters is equally distasteful, though I will blame the orig. uploader/author.

The same case of missing parameters and white-space is visible over all 404 errors; in the page displayed, if someone clicks a link for a partner who is not anymore in the platform. Click the link over T218848.

Finally, who is frankieleon, whose images are specifically displayed in all such cases? The closest that a GSearch boasts about is a footwear company. FWIW, there are ample photos over our own Commons; which can be displayed over those situation and under far broad licenses, truest to our principles.

Honestly I think the only thing for us to work on here is the CC BY version number. Updated task description.

Hey @Samwalton9,

Honestly I think the only thing for us to work on here is the CC BY version number. Updated task description.

How about the image? when working on this should I just ignore the picture with a mouse? I see in the story description, a statement saying that there are other pictures with much broader licenses we could work with.

Hey guys, how do I get a hold of the repository for this task's code in order to clone it and make changes.?

@Nicks-bro I don't think the image needs to change. The repository is located at https://github.com/WikipediaLibrary/TWLight :)

Hey @Samwalton9, I am requesting for rights to push to the repository, seems like I can't push any changes due to permission issues.

remote: Permission to WikipediaLibrary/TWLight.git denied to NicholusMuwonge.
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/WikipediaLibrary/TWLight.git/': The requested URL returned error: 403

@Nicks-bro Hi! Please make a fork of the repository, push your changes there, and then file a Pull Request to the master branch.

hey @Here, Kindly spare some time to take a look at a PR I have raised for this story, all your feedback is highly welcomed.
