Hello,

I think I (or someone else) have suggested this before, but as a referee and frequent contributor, I would like to see a button that would be a fast way to swap all the data in these two fields between each other:



Currently such a swap exists for the photos, but as someone else has recently noted, the other fields have to be copy/pasted and switched manually.

The "only photos" swap option we have now should be also preserved, so that when it is only a photo mix-up, there is no need to swap everything.

Oh yes, I've been asking this function for a long time already.

Indeed, there should be such option. At least we should have the following choice:
  • Swap only pictures between obverse and reverse (as per today). Convenient when only the user has made a mistake when uploading the pictures.
  • Swap everything. Really convenient when everything has been entered in the wrong place.

Obviously, this should work for both the French and the English parts of the obverse/reverse fields.

​Good thinking on the first point, I've added it to my original post!

Hello,
I agree we need this feature to avoid mistakes when switching obverse and reverse.

Hello,
A new link "Switch obverse and reverse" was added on coin modification pages, in order to switch all the data (in both languages, including pictures) of the obverse and the reverse.

On coin pages, click on the usual link to modify the coin. The link to switch obverse and reverse is just below the big yellow block at the top about the guidelines.

Hi

I am getting this reply:

We're sorry, but we cannot locate the Web page you are looking for. Maybe you followed an outdated link, or perhaps you typed an invalid URL.

If the error remains, please report it to me at postmaster@numista.com.

It looks like this.




This does not return to the original page with the coin - this is inconvenient.

And in my case only images have changed, the text has not changed.

Can you please try again?
The "page not found" redirection should be fixed.
If you still have the texts not being changed, please send me the link to the coin so I can check what happened.

Is it possible to also add a button to copy the copyright information from the field above (from avers for reverse)?
SWAP LIST (lots of Russia (from wire to 2018) + Tannu Tuva, Goths from Taman, Crimea, Grand principality of Moscow, Siberia, Tatarstan, Golden Horde, Genoa, Bukhara, Khiva etc.)

The copyright information is switched together with the rest. Here are all the data switched (or submitted for approval) when you click that button:
  • Picture
  • Description (English and French)
  • Lettering
  • Translation of the lettering (English and French)
  • Engraver
  • Copyright type and name

Referees can see such a request?

Hello Cyrillius,
If a user has referee right for that coin, the change will be done without any review. It will be visible only in the history of the coin page.
If the user doesn't have referee right for that coin, they will be asked to provide a source or explanation, and a modification request will be created, so that the referee can approve or reject.
You can test with the user "demo" and pass word "demo" if you want to check how it looks like.

Ehm, should demo login be on the public website forum?

​It always was, there you could try out the swapping mechanics.

​Xavier,
Before changes are made or corrections submitted, shouldn't the ground rules be mentioned as to what constitutes the obverse or reverse of a coin.

Obverse is always identification of the country/issuer - that is ruler portrait, coat of arms or sinple text.

Is this an official Numista rule that would overwrite i.e. what the mint says? Because there are countless coins that would not follow this one.
In general there is no rule for what is ob or reverse (at least in the last few decades in quite a few countries).

Yes, this is official Numista rule, and contrary to whichever mint says, it is a worldwide rule of coin making... For population of given country, usually the denomination side is obverse, but technically, country comes first.

https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces2150.html This is nice example actually, for me, side with 1 will always be obverse since my childhood (I am actually as old as this coin) but side which says Česká republika is technically obverse.
