El_Grafo added a comment to T166094: Allow editors to provide default alt text on Wikimedia Commons file description pages.

I have some other points that should be taken into consideration

  1. Having a default alt tag, will increase the size of an img transclusion on pages, which seems something to keep an eye on.
  2. Review... In much the same way as default content from wikidata was a problem for en.wp, I suspect that default content for alt tags from Commons might be a problem for that community. It would be the first text content from Commons that by default becomes part of wp articles, sourced by search engines etc. There is a vandalism angle possible there, and they may argue that Commons' review processes are not setup to detect that, so that might become a conflict point.
  3. Per the law of levels of investment required to get something useful... This is likely only to benefit en.wp in any sort of substantial level. Other languages will stil mostly be left out.
  4. It could be a distinguishing feature to have multi lingual alt text of very popular media items.

El_Grafo added a comment to T166094: Allow editors to provide default alt text on Wikimedia Commons file description pages.
  1. "Alt text is context dependent" - that shouldn't keep us from offering general purpose default alt texts like "a basket full of mushrooms on a wooden table" that can be overridden with existing syntax: [[File:foo.jpg|thumb|description|alt=specific alt text]]. No counterarguments have been made against this.

If the image is used on the article about the species of fungus, would that be good alt text? No.

On commons we want to have the option to enable all thumbnails completely, not mocked up pseudos like cropped squares. To give image researchers fast ways to overlook their search results seeing the exact image contents as miniatures, including all edges. For example to see if it is a landscape or portrait format. Thumbs of image files on Commons do need this special attention compared to thumbs on other projects.

El_Grafo added a comment to T167815: Conduct MP3 patrol discussion.

In my experience (and I have somewhat failed in this at the past) the best method would be to start a simple 'discussion' about the perceived issue, suggest a solution, and then ask the community to debate the matter. Once there is at least some degree of consensus about the correct solution, then ask the community to actually vote on approving it.

The goal here (and I hate being so 'politicial') is to create a degree of investment in the community in solving the actual issue, instead of merely asking for a 'yes or no' to a specific solution.... if the community says yes, and then there are complications, the opinion will shift quickly to 'no' with blame applied to the proposer of the solution that proved to be problematic. We need a degree of community engagement with deciding what is the correct solution to the issue, so that the community has an investment in finding the best solution instead of simply saying 'no, that broke the world'.

El_Grafo added a comment to T120867: Large amounts of unwanted files (mostly copyvios) uploaded via cross-wiki upload tool (A/B test of different upload interfaces).

(...) Requesting wiki configuration changes says we need community consensus, so I suppose we should start an RFC at Commons:Village pump/Proposals?

Well, I have some kind of conflict of interest here, because probadly I provided the most content and data AGAINST this tool... so it would be nice, if someone else would open the RFC. Please... soon (Commons is flooded by currently around 500 cross-wiki uploads daily)

Wow. Looks like the mobile uploads disaster all over again (in case you don't remember, see Mobile upload needing check#Background). I agree with @Yann: This has to stop immediately. Requesting wiki configuration changes says we need community consensus, so I suppose we should start an RFC at Commons:Village pump/Proposals?

El_Grafo added a comment to T31793: Check uploaded images with Google image search to find copyright violations.

Why is this in UploadWizard? The upload checker should be generic for any upload method and it's not necessary for it to be part of MediaWiki even. A Python bot or web tool would be equally good, for instance.

El_Grafo added a comment to T103527: Visualize audio files on file description pages.

Yes, the idea was mainly for file description pages, and I can't really imagine anyone objecting to enable it there by default (but, just in case of flying pigs, an RFC at Commons might be a good idea).

It seems like the android version is looking for volunteers, though: Commons:Mobile app. You may want to get in touch with User:Syced

El_Grafo added a comment to T113177: Evaluate position of "Open in Media Viewer" button on file description page.

IMO there should be an "image options panel" where extensions and gadgets can easily add their buttons, much like mw.util.addPortletLink() for the toolbar, but as I said that's a bit beyond Media Viewer.
