I tried to perform another move like this one, but it says I'm not a confirmed user. Thank you. -- Jab7842 (talk) 19:55, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Why you move pages archived in 2009 around? I see no need. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:58, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
@Steinsplitter. Correct format for these pages is Commons:Categories for discussion/20YY/MM/Category:NAME not Commons:Categories for discussion/Current requests/20YY/MM/Category:NAME or Commons:Deletion requests/Archive/20YY/MM/Category:NAME. -- Jab7842 (talk) 20:09, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

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)

License reviewer[edit]



Frequently I've to rename files when uploading from my mobile or from the Russian Wikipedia Thank you. Fastboy (talk) 13:15, 13 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)
✓ Done --Didym (talk) 15:10, 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)
