ShakespeareFan00 added a comment to T269518: IA Upload: Permit duplicate IA identifier if of a different format.

My suggested wording would be "An existing file is already linked to the IA identifier 'foo00foo': File:bar.pdf. It is not necessary to upload a duplicate file, unless it is to resolve a technical issue, missing or illegible content." which enumerates the reasons where uploading apparent 'duplicates' wouldbe permitted.

ShakespeareFan00 added a comment to T253591: page generators can truncate responses when there is excessive metadata (e.g. DjVu/PDF files).

ShakespeareFan00 added a comment to T253591: page generators can truncate responses when there is excessive metadata (e.g. DjVu/PDF files).

Given that for many of these files the metadata WOULD include the substantial text layer that is only of relevance for specific tools (like Fae's copyright message hunter on Commons) or Proofread Page at Wikisource, would it be technically feasible to move the text-layer to being something that is NOT supplied unless explicitly requested, meaning that having to request explicitly would mean changes to a small number of tools as opposed to having to rewrite many if the default was to exclude the metadata entirely by default?

ShakespeareFan00 added a comment to T254459: Large PDF upload issue.

Fae: I've also noted a quality issue with some PDF uploads,

being one, Where the page image displayed in the interface is of a lower quality than that in the actual PDF ( compared to a direct display of the page in Adobe Reader, which was also unable to export a usable image to older image viewer tools.)

ShakespeareFan00 added a comment to T123517: Automatically check Commons uploads for possible copyright violations.

Not necessarily a check suitable for all uploads, but comparing a new upload against a hash for an 'office' actioned removal might be useful. You could compute an SHA-1 on a new upload and compare it against ones previously removed. (Like is done in ehcking for duplicate uploads). This could prevent accidental re-upload of previously removed material, with a suitable warning to the uploader.

ShakespeareFan00 added a comment to T231161: Add in/not in content namespace to Special:Linterrors.

I'd like to able to do a "prefix" filter as well. On Wikisource, goups of Lint errors typically need to be fixed across a number of Page: for a given Index: and at present the Special:LintErrors page doesn't let me do that level of search "granularity".
