Errors in File:Forms of government.svg[edit]

Jerago con Orago, Italian Republic, 22 ottobre 2014

Spettabili amministratori

con la presente comunico la presenza di diversi errori nel file-immagine menzionato in campo oggetto. Mi riferisco:

  • Alla Repubblica di Slovenia (Republika Slovenija) e alla Repubblica di Croazia (Republika Hrvatska), che hanno una forma di governo semipresidenziale, non parlamentare.
  • Alla Malesia (Malaysia), di cui una parte è stata inglobata nel Regno di Thailandia (Ratcha Anachak Thai): la prima è una monarchia parlamentare, la seconda una dittatura militare.

in attesa di una vostra risposta sulla possibilita di correggere il documento, mando cordiali saluti

Upload difficulties[edit]

I cannot do that without admin help: the first step (move/rename without altering all its usages) would work fine; it will also be possible to exstinguish the automatic generated CommonsDelinker-RenameRequest; but when I try to upload the new file with the name of the old file (after the move/rename this old file name is redirecting to the renamed file), the msg occurs "Upload error: A file with this name exists already in the shared file repository. If you still want to upload your file, please go back and use a new name." But I want that all file usages everywhere get the 'new' file instead being redirected to the renamed 'old' file'. Therefore I ask an administrator to help me with this action. sarang사랑 17:38, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

I had this problem too, but all you have to do is edit the redirect, replacing it with the new description, but in this case I do not see why you would want to save the old version as a separate file. Delphi234 (talk) 11:23, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

French-speaker needed[edit]

Could an French-speaking colleague help User talk:GalmicheM with his recently deleted contributions? It seems he doesn't speak English. --Túrelio (talk) 20:24, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

WLM and countries with no FoP[edit]

After nominating for deletion numerous 2014 WLM uploads of modern Ukrainian monuments (and many from earlier WLMs), I've considered the need for a warning of some kind during WLM, on Commons and on wikis of countries with FoP restrictions and/or no FoP, telling uploaders to upload modern images locally if possible, and only images of older PD monuments to Commons. Otherwise we end up alienating uploaders when their uploads are tagged and deleted for "no FoP", and flooding Commons with FoP copyvios. Thoughts and ideas? INeverCry 22:19, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

This isn't exactly an admin issue. Rather than split the discussion, let's keep it all at Commons:Village_pump#WLM_and_countries_with_no_FoP. -mattbuck (Talk) 22:28, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Block required[edit]
