Structured data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)

WikiMedia Commons mailing list
Hi all, following up on last month's announcement... [0]

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 November or Thursday, 10 November 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

* Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on mediawiki.org because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons. [1]
* Test out using captions on Beta Commons. [2]
* Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release. [3]

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta. [4]

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. I'll reply to this post once I confirm exactly what day file captions will be released to Commons.

This should be January, not November.

Thanks for the news, Keegan. I'm cross-posting the info to other lists with the date boldly corrected.

Captions are scheduled to go live tomorrow, Thursday 10 January, between 15:00 and 16:00 UTC. The time window may change at the last minute, and the team my hold the deployment (or roll it back) if last minute problems occur. Should that happen I will keep you all informed, and I'll see you all at the IRC office hour tomorrow.

Captions can now be added to files on Commons. There's a bug with abusefilter sending errors to new accounts adding captions, the bug is being investigated and fixed right now. IRC office hours will be in a little over one hour from now, I look forward to seeing you there if you can attend.
