Ask for blocking[edit]

An unknown user repeatedly and with no reason reverts edits of User:JanSuchy in two files - see his activity: [1] Thanks! --PetrS. (talk) 16:16, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

✓ Done I have warned him and will block him the next time it happens. However, I also put a {{delete}} on File:SVT 137 154 modell Piko a.jpg as it is a copyvio of both the packaging and the model.
And, this page is for discussions about Administrators and their role. For your future reference, the place to request blocks is Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/Blocks and protections.

Removal of Administratorship[edit]

Is there a process where one can vote to remove admin status from people who are not deemed suitable at all? I am referring to an admin going amok at Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Santon (figurine). Mass deletion requests of this sort without even haveing a look at each file is for me obviously a grave misconduct, and I'd even like to block that user completely. That somebody like that is an administrator is hardly bearable. --FA2010 (talk) 12:34, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

We have Commons:Administrators/De-adminship#De-adminship process as a result of abuse of power. I'll neither recommend nor discourage starting the process for this, though. --whym (talk) 03:18, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Is there still no process to vote for removal of administrators that are unable to cope with their task (e. g. ridiculous deletions)? Something like de:WP:A/WW? For example copyright-paranoid people (about de minimis stuff on photos, about folkloristic designs etc.) should really not be in such a position in a project that advocates free media. Since the vast majoritiy of current Commons administrators seem to fall in that category, while the real copyright violations are usually not tackled in a timely manner, I'd really love to have some method to get rid of these idiots. --AndreasPraefcke (talk) 09:02, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

As everyone can check e.g. at Commons:Administrators/Requests/Ralf Roletschek commons crats actually do count neutral votes (14/(14+11) = 56% but 14/(14+11+3) = 50%). Thats why I changed the text on the page. Just in case someone wonders ... a×pdeHello! 14:33, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

I don't think you should unilaterally change long-standing policy like that. What you can do is point it out to the crat in question that they're not following the policy. Jafeluv (talk) 19:51, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
Also I'm sure you already know about the community consensus on the matter. After all, it was you who started the RFC in the first place. Jafeluv (talk) 20:04, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
I didn't unilaterally change long-standing policy, EugeneZelenko did do that. I was just stating the facts! Why does he still ignore community consensus and noone interferes? a×pdeHello! 22:17, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
As I said, I think you're posting on the wrong page. Here's the link: User talk:EugeneZelenko. Jafeluv (talk) 06:13, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
I already told EugeneZelenko to change vote counting, but he didn't change. So what shall I do? Block him for ignoring community consensus? a×pdeHello! 17:12, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Another try: User talk:EugeneZelenko#voting a×pdeHello! 17:18, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. Looks like it's been resolved there. Jafeluv (talk) 09:22, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

שאלה - לא בטוחה שזה המקום הנכון...[edit]

שלום רב, שמי טלי ואני מטעם מרכז ההשתלות של משרד הבריאות. ניסיתי לכתוב ערך בשבילנו "המרכז הלאומי להשתלות" אבל בגלל שיש ערך דומה "המרכז הלאומי להשתלות איברים" לא אישרתם לי את זה. יש לי כמה בקשות לגבי הערך הזה: 1. קיים קישור למשרד החינוך שאינו עובד - אבקש שתסירו אותו. 2. אבקש לציין כי כל הפעילות של כרטיס אדי מנוהלת ומתופעלת על ידי המרכז הלאומי להשתלות ולא על ידי עמותת אדי. 3. אשמח להוסיף קישור על "כרטיס אדי" לכתובת של המרכז הלאומי להשתלות:

תודה, טלי — Preceding unsigned comment added by Talimish (talk • contribs) 06:29, 4 June 2013‎ (UTC)

Hello Tali, it looks like you are trying to write/edit an article about the National Transplant Center. Did I get that right? In that case you should have a look at the hebrew language wikipedia. This is the media archive for all wikimedia projects. You will find images, videos, and sounds on this site, not article texts. --Dschwen (talk) 16:31, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Name problem[edit]

I do graphic work here and that means I also convert from bitmap to vector image. Then when I upload the svg file I can't use the same name as the bitmap had so I have to change it in some way. I do this by adding *_svg in the filename.
This is not good and I don't want to do it but I have to give it another name. I then see that the names sometimes are changed back and then it seems as the system accepts this.
This problem gives administrators and others unnecessary work and it doesn't feel good for me when I know this is not good.
Pictogram voting question.svg Question- So how should I do?
I havent been able to find out any way so any help would be great, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:49, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Administrator complain[edit]

How can I complain about an administrator? ScotXW (talk) 11:38, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Just like about any other user. Jee 11:44, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. I wrote a complain, and now the problem is, I don't find my complain again... how can you hide stuff in a database? ScotXW (talk) 13:17, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Hmm; I failed to locate who and when this comment removed. Probably archived by the bot if no further comment within 3 days. You can resubmit again. Jee 13:47, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Yes, most likely it was archived and not deleted, but I would like to find the archived complaint. Also, why has it been archived, if the problem is still there? ScotXW (talk) 17:53, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
The bot archives threads after a certain amount of time has passed since the last comment. The archived section can be found here. Jafeluv (talk) 19:30, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Incorporating Commons:Administrators/Howto[edit]

Hi, this page transclude Commons:Administrators/Howto and is also basically the only page that links to this subpage. Instead of marking that subpage for translation as well are there any objections to simply incorporating it into this page? Regards, --ChrisiPK (Talk|Contribs) 15:00, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
