Administrator's assistance

This is a place where users can communicate with administrators, or administrators with one another. You can report vandalism, problematic users, or anything else that needs an administrator's intervention. Do not report child pornography or other potentially illegal content here; e-mail legal-reports@wikimedia.org instead. If reporting threatened harm to self or others also email emergency@wikimedia.org.

Note

  • Keep your report as short as possible, but include links as evidence.
  • Remember to sign and date all comments using four tildes (~~~~), which translates into a signature and a time stamp.
  • It is usually appropriate to notify the user(s) concerned. {{subst:Discussion-notice|noticeboard=COM:AN/U|thread=|reason=}} is available for this.
  • It is important to keep a cool head, especially when responding to comments against you or your edits. Personal attacks and disruptive comments only escalate a situation; Please try to remain civil with your comments.
  • Administrators: Please make a note if a report is dealt with, to avoid unnecessary responses by other admins.


Hooperag[edit]

Yesterday, Hooperag left Wikipedia (and presumably Commons) after five years because he or she was tired of following the rules (or so they said). This follows the recent deletion of a number of uploads without verifiable source information. Hooperag was back after less than two hours, though, to upload File:Al Abbas Shrine.jpg. Since that file also lacks proper source information, and since the user is apparently not too happy with me after I've explained our requirements, would an uninvolved administrator or experienced user please give it another try?

Blocked 2 weeks. Hope that helps, FASTILY 02:38, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

File:Benjamin Netanyahu 2010.jpg[edit]

User:Yossimgim reverting my upload. I've improved color balance, cropped it to portrait size and so that the head was at the center. The image is used in Infobox. --Triggerhippie4 (talk) 11:44, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

User:Yossimgim is edit warring, but you should upload the modified version as a separate image, as both have valid aspects. -- Tuválkin 12:09, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
Then he will be putting his version to Wikipedia, I'm sure. --Triggerhippie4 (talk) 12:53, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
I protected the file for three days, and i agree with Tuvalkin. Further it is up to Wikipedia which file they like to use. See also COM:OVERWRITE. --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:53, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment@Triggerhippie4 There is no "his version" or "my version" of an image in Commons. It works against the spirit of the project to PWN images of which one is not the creator. If you're looking for things to do which will make lasting contribution, there are over 57,000 files pending in Category:Images without source. Many of those are simply template errors and simple fixes, but they're far more necessary than quibbling over what picture may or may not get used this week in some article. Just my 2cents. Cheers!

And it is just an extracted figure from this. Triggerhippie4 or anybody interested can make more (but under another filename). :) Jee 15:55, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
