Brackenheim III[edit]

Useful for my work with this acount (move files from to Commons). Thank you. Brackenheim III (talk) 14:12, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
 Not done With 136 editions, 0 on enwiki and 14 on dewiki... IMHO is too soon. Read section header. Regards, --Alan (talk) 16:18, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Hello Alan, sorry, my "explanation" was too short: With "this acount" I just wanted to say, that I use this second account to move files from to Commons via Commonshelper and I don't want these files in Special:ListFiles. So I'm forced to use a second account... Regards, --Brackenheim III (talk) 16:29, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

AutoWikiBrowser access[edit]


I do categorizations adjustments often, so the tool would be very useful to me. I am familiar with the task for more than 4 and half years and I operate AWB in PT.WP for that long also, so it's nothing new to me. PS: please note that almost every warning in my talk page refers to images transferred from other wikipedias, none is of "real" uploads I did. Thank you. Stegop (talk) 00:05, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

I use AWB on and it could be very useful here as well. Brackenheim (talk) 21:04, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Working on many lists in Wikipedia and want to adjust naming between Wikipedia and Commons Thank you. Derzno (talk) 18:21, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting question.svg Question Is there consensus to do so? Can you please provide a few examples? --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 21:23, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Have look as example into: These showin "official name" of the nature reserve and should be same naming here in commons. --Derzno (talk) 08:05, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
I can't see a wrong named file on th page mentioned above. --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:44, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
I fail to see the problem as well. Or do you want to add the prefix NSG to all files? --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 07:12, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
I'd didn't said that I'd like to change everything ;) Anyhow, personally I don't need this. I'll find what ever I'm looking for. But I'll assume that a couple Cats needs to be renamed to be in line with the Wikipedia and/or official naming structure. I'm not plan to rename files but want to make my life easier for cats. --Derzno (talk) 08:12, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

✓ Filemover rights assigned --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 08:57, 13 July 2014 (UTC)


I used to request renamings through the usual tool, and I would like to know if it's possible to add me filemover right in order to rename more files more often. For example, I would like to help in the Category:Files of Paris with bad file names in which there are files of Paris with not descriptive file names (for the moment more than 300 files waiting for a new filename). Thanks for your help. Jeriby (talk) 12:58, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

I do renaming requests quite often, but most of the times I only do it when I am sure the name is completely wrong or completely meanless, so I can hardly do anything wrong by mistake. Having the tool would allow me have less work and give less work to others. Thank you. Stegop (talk) 00:11, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
✓ Done Natuur12 (talk) 21:35, 23 July 2014 (UTC)


I often require the use of filemover to correct typos and such in the titles of files I see or have uploaded. I am experienced with Wikipedia and with Commons and know that I will only move files when this is required. Having this right would make it quicker and easier for me to complete my work. Thank you.

Why you need filemover rights? --Steinsplitter (talk) 21:32, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
Zunächst möchte ich andere Mover nicht mit meinen eigenen Fehlern beschäftigen und zusätzlich dazu beitragen, Umbenennungswünsche von anderen Usern unter Beachtung der Richtlinien zu erledigen. --Pelz (talk) 19:21, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Reid,iain james[edit]

Now, I have found that I require the use of filemover to correct errors in the titles of images I have uploaded or come across when browsing categories that interest me. I am quite experienced on wikipedia and commons, and know that I will only move files when necessary. This right would enable me to fix problems quicker and easier than asking a filemover to do it for me. Thank you. Reid,iain james (talk) 16:59, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose IMHO not enough edits. 5k edits total, only 595 on Commons is on the very low side. You can always add the move template for now if you come across something. Let's talk again when you reach at least 1k edits and initiated some moves. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:02, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
