Hi. I spend most of my time on commons browsing or uploading images of dinosaurs and related organisms. As these animals are relatively well-known by non-experts, many images of them get uploaded with extremely generic titles (eg. "Dinosaur"). I spend quite a lot of time requesting that these images are moved to a more specific and/or correct name, which is why I request to become a filemover. I have over 1000 live edits and 1050 total edits, and have made large numbers of move requests, so I should meet the criteria. If I had filemover rights, I would only move an image when the title was incorrect (eg. wrong spelling, species, genus) or overly generic (eg. "Theropod", "North American dinosaur", "Ornithischian", "Sauropod" etc.). Thank you. IJReid (talk) 15:34, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
