I have been uploading pictures to Commons since 2011. Starting October 10, I have started working with the Department of Pathology at Calicut Medical College on a GLAM project to bring several images related to pathology to Wikimedia Commons. The second phase of this project is to add these high-quality images to English Wikipedia and Wikipedias in several Indian languages. The project necessitates me to have the filenames changed quickly, before they are being used on Wikipedia projects by other users. I have placed several filemover requests in the last week because of the need for harmonizing names and correcting obvious errors. I will also be writing articles related to pathology as a part of this project, for which I might need to consider moving some files not uploaded by me. Additionally, I am interested in concentrating on filemover requests on images related medicine and India. Thank you. Netha Hussain (talk) 15:53, 21 October 2014 (UTC)


I have loaded more than 2000 files since 2008. I made several file moving requests in the last months. The possibility to move files myself will be useful. Thank you. Buch-t (talk) 15:19, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
