Nuvola apps important yellow.svg I noticed that you uploaded a file using the same name as another file, which already existed on Commons. Overwriting an existing file should not be done except when making minor, uncontroversial corrections, so the file has been restored to its original version. If the file you attempted to upload is within our project scope and is in the public domain or published under a free license, please upload it again under a different name. Thank you!

For more information, see Commons:Avoid overwriting images with new uploads.

Use

A filename of the overwrited file can be used as a parameter, see an example: {{subst:Dont overwrite|File:Imagename.jpg}}

Localization

To create a new language version of this template, create a new subpage and use this code:

{{Dont overwrite/layout
|lang={{subst:SUBPAGENAME}}
|text=Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. I notice that you have uploaded {{#if:{{{1|}}}|[[:{{{1}}}]]|a new image}} and at the same time replaced an older one. I think you should know that this is only allowed when the two images are almost exactly alike. Here in Commons we would like to host as many different, useful versions as possible for Wikimedia projects to choose from. I have restored your image to an older version, but I hope you will upload your fine image with another name. Thank you, and happy editing!
