I'm active as image analysis. I do copyright inspection. I do the delete request. I think I provide the necessary conditions. Uğurkent (talk) 20:41, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

I upload a lot of images from Flickr (sometimes with not-so-pretty-names) and it would be useful having the filemover right, so I won't bother other users renaming my uploaded files. I've requested several file renamings, all of them successfull!! Face-smile.svg And I'm aware of file renaming criterions, of course. Thank you. Strakhov (talk) 21:09, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Member since 2005 as file uploader, categorizer etc. I regularly request file moves (of my last 200 edits, in January-March, 11 are rename requests), which have so far (IIRC) always been performed, so having the extra right would be handy. --Constantine 13:39, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Josef Grieshuber (image donation)[edit]

This is the account for a big image donation (~500 picture up to now, ~15000 coming), used by User:MichaelSchoenitzer and Josef Grieshuber himself. It is used to upload the butterfly images of Josef Grieshuber. In the mean time, Josef found some errors and also the taxonomy has changed for some of the specimen, we would like to fix those. Therefore we would like to get renaming rights. They wont be used outside of this scope and only for the pictures of this collection. Thank you.

✓ Done Added autopatrol as well. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 13:04, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

I've been as User:Alofok already filemover. I made the decision that I won't use the old account, on the german Wikipedia I have renamed the old account to Hilarmont - on Commons I missed that. It would be more then good, if I would get against the rights. Thanks! Hilarmont (talk) 16:51, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
✓ Done Moved the right to your new account. Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:02, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

I have requested filemove a couple of times, and believe I can be trusted to this now. Thank you. Dan Koehl (talk) 23:52, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
 Not done Sorry, but with 376 edits not experienced enough on commons. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:17, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Berthold Werner[edit]

I got some discussions on QIC that filenames of my pictures would not apply to the rules. It would be useful if I get the filemove right to do thisby myself. --Berthold Werner (talk) 08:47, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
