Jan.Kamenicek added a comment to T228594: en.ws OCR deletes old contents of a page, but does not generate new text..

So months are passing by and the only suggested solution is: Send messages in all directions and find Phe the Magician, or wait until s/he appears, nobody else is able to fix it. I apologize for strong words, but the whole thing and the Phabricator itself are becoming quite ridiculous. Technical support, why have you forsaken us...?

Not only en.ws, but other language wikisources as well. There is a big danger of losing contributors.

What is the current state of this task? Are we just waiting if @Phe responses, or is there any way how to handle the problem even if he does not... He created a great tool, but it is no good if its maintenance depends on availability of a single person.

Seems it works again. If @Phe has repaired it, I would like to thank him very much, as the tool is great help.

It is not running again. Is there any possibility how to improve the gadget's performance and make its inaccessibility less frequent, or ideally make it accessible at any time?

Even better solution would be if the tool could accept more requests so that the message was not needed anymore.

Jan.Kamenicek added a comment to T196961: Non-rendering of thumbnail of compressed pdf in Commons.

It has been found out that the complicated workaround consisting of exporting the files into TIFF and than back to PDF results in flattening the layers and considerable loss of quality of pictures. Not everybody also has software able to do such a workaround. May I ask if there is any progress ahead?

Meanwhile I tried to reprocess it as djvu, which sometimes (not always) helped in the past, but this time it did not: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_voice_of_an_oppressed_people.djvu (I will nominate if for deletion after some while).

Jan.Kamenicek added a comment to T196961: Non-rendering of thumbnail of compressed pdf in Commons.

Until now I have experienced this problem only with files downloaded from archive.org, now for the first time I have the same problem with a file downloaded from Hathi Trust Digital Library, see https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_voice_of_an_oppressed_people.pdf . Meanwhile, more people were discussing the problem at en.wikisource, e.g. here: https://en.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Wikisource%3AScriptorium%2FHelp&type=revision&diff=8890604&oldid=8890506 or here: https://en.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Wikisource%3AScriptorium%2FHelp&type=revision&diff=8935250&oldid=8924491 . It would be nice if someone managed to find a solution. Could this task receive a higher priority?

I uploaded another version of the same djvu file, which is fine. The original problematic version (which worked well in my computer but not in Commons) can be found in history.

It seems this problem is connected with many (or all?) pdf files downloaded from archive.org, so it would really help if it were solved. It prevents such files to be proofread at Wikisource, as the proofread extension is not able to render the pdf pages from Commons as well.

Jan.Kamenicek added a comment to T203402: in Commons, some PDFs are failing to render thumbnails..

One more thing: I thought it might be just a problem of displaying the thumbnails and otherwise the files could work well, so I tried to use them at Wikisource. However, the individual pages of the pdf files did not display there either, neither in the Index namespace nor in the Page namespace. Despite the fact that the scans were not displayed there, the proofreading extension was able to read the text layer of the files!

Jan.Kamenicek changed the status of T203402: in Commons, some PDFs are failing to render thumbnails. from Stalled to Open.

The problem is quite well described in the discussion which Ronhjones referred and linked to above. As Ronhjones has written, the problem was with the initially uploaded file, but he remade the document and so the thumbnails got fine. The question is, why the file had to be remade? I had exactly the same problem also with the initial upload of https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Czech_Folk_Tales.pdf . Both pdf files were downlodaded from archives.org (e. g. the latter one from https://archive.org/stream/czechfolktales00bauduoft#page/n7 ), both of them seemed well before uploading to Commons, but did not display thumbnails after uploading them. I guess other pdf. files from archive.org would suffer the same problem.

Unfortunately, it is not only on one page: see also https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedie:Vybran%C3%A1_v%C3%BDro%C4%8D%C3%AD_dne/%C3%BAnor , https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedie:Vybran%C3%A1_v%C3%BDro%C4%8D%C3%AD_dne/b%C5%99ezen and all other Selected Anniversaries pages.

Jan.Kamenicek added a comment to T121295: Automatic cite feature in VisualEditor on English Wikipedia sets edition as "X edition ed.".

Not only "vyd." (="ed." or "edition" in English) is doubled at cs.wiki, but also the abbreviation "s." meaning "page". For example "p. 47" is written as "47 s. s." instead of correct "47 s."

In the Czech Wikipedia article https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Napoleon_Bonaparte the hovercards show a drawing of Napoleon as a child instead the photo from the infobox, which is the most expected picture to show.
