I've read Commons:Patrol and am willing to help in this task, which I know well as I've acquired a significant experience of it on seven other Wikimedia wikis for several years. Thank you. JackPotte (talk) 11:12, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

License reviewer[edit]



I've uploaded numerous files to English Wikipedia (non-free/fair-use) and several more to the Commons. I have a very very good understanding of what can be uploaded to wiki/commons and what cannot. I also understand how file names should be named and understand the 8 different criteria for renaming a file. There have also been a few times where I've need to move a file that I uploaded because of a spelling mistake that I didn't realize until after.--Dom497 (talk) 01:59, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

 I think you want to rename your files NOT want this right so Not done Please use {{rename}} to request rename and also read COM:FR to know in what circumstances we normally proceed to rename a file. Thanks for volunteering to help out at Commons which is very much appreciated. ~ Nahid Talk 21:24, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
And i've renamed all your files .svg to png. Please keep in mind when you save your .svg file please use save link as option instead of save image as if you use windows. In this way your svg file remains svg as it was but if you use save image as option then all your svg file will be uploaded as .svg.png extension when you upload your downloaded files to commons. ~ Nahid Talk 21:38, 26 August 2014 (UTC)


I would like to move files directly to their right titles, mainly in Spanish, a language in which many people cannot judge them. I would also want to help on Wiki Loves Monuments renaming files with this flag if needed. Thanks in advance. abián 18:30, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
