===Grunt Ends 19:05, Sep 15===    

I'm a sysop on w:en who would very much like to see this project get off the ground so that I can start adding things of my own here. I am strongly opposed to vandalism and indeed conflict of any sort, and we could probably use a sysop or two in these early days to help things get off the ground. -- Grunt 19:05, 8 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Since (hopefully) commons will begin to grow at a faster pace, now that it has been activated on all wikis, and I really enjoy doing maintenance work, I figured I'd put up a request. I love the idea behind Commons, and I'm trying to become more involved in the media side, especially with my dad's photography. Nadavspi 01:49, 2 Nov 2004 (UTC)

==Aurevilly==     

French. I am indeed interested in being administrator & bureaucrat on this project (because I think sysophood should be given here more easily than in other projects, considering the need, and sometimes the legal need to delete copyrighted material) . I am sysop on Fr and meta, besides being an editor at Foundation web site. Working in the legal area, my main hobby has to do with design and pictures. For instance, I created from scratch the Wikimedia Quarto cover and designed a substantiel part of the newsletter itself. Trying to have this kind of central repository is a very exciting challenge in which I intend to contribute significantly. Thank you. villy 21:31, 2 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Yes, of course. Yann 21:38, 2 Nov 2004 (UTC)

==Greatpatton==       

I'm mainly active on the french wikipedia where I have the status of administrator. My goal is to focus my particiaption on few specific subjet and among them how to improve illustration/graphic. One of my challenge is to produce free graphics for wikipedia as I think that images can provide as much information as a good text. You can find some exemple of my work on my personal page on fr:. For me, commons is a revolution in the wikipedia world. It will allow quick sharing between project and a better review for each images. I think that administrator are important to make sure that all images respect the guidlines of commons and are reviewed indivually, that why I m proposing my me in the role of administrator on commons to help and to take a share of this workload.

I am a german/dutch Wikipedian and sysop in the germanspeaking Wikipedia.

I like the idea of commons very well and are a supporter of GFDL. So I want to help to keep commons free of unfree images. --Raymond de 07:57, 5 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Support - I do not know about your bondage stuff on :de, seeing that you've already started to upload those pics here. Franckly it makes me a bit uneasy so that I don't know what to think about your being sysop here. No opposition though. villy 10:12, 5 Nov 2004 (UTC). Your fanclub below is enough to pass from neutral to support. :) villy 18:44, 10 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Sure, I have a lot of own (and free) pictures from bondage, but also much more "normal" pictures as seen on my Foto-site. I will upload them all to commons. But it is also importend for me to check new pictures from the community for licenceproblems. --Raymond de 10:28, 5 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Support. I just don't like very much the use of user's page REDIRECTs to other wikimedia projects, 1° because not everyone has an account everywhere, which cause unintentional anonymous edits... 2° It complicates terribly the access to your Commons contributions.

I'm highly active in the Romanian pages, I already translated the most important inteface pages like Commons:Babel.ro, Commons:Întrebări frecvente, Commons:Marcaje pentru drepturi de autor, Commons:Imagini excelente and Commons:Candidate pentru imagini excelente. I also "refurnished" the romanian main page, making it more interesting. So I think Romanians should have their own admin too (I'm also an admin on the Romanian Wikipedia since 2003, see [3]).

I could also help in multilingual coordination, since I speak romanian (advanced), german, spanish and english (intermediar), and italian and portuguese (basic) Danutz 10:36, 23 Dec 2004 (UTC)

I'm a loyal admin on en.pedia, and I've started moving my maps (and eventually photos, once I find my camera) over here, and many of them need redos, so I figured, since I'm already an admin on en:, it might be useful just to get admin rather than flood "requests for deletion". :) And I'll find some commons-specific admin tasks to do when I hop over here. Thank you. --Golbez 22:37, 23 Dec 2004 (UTC)

I'm interested in the Commons as being THE place to store most pictures and other (sensible) media files in order to save storage and at the same time provide all Wikipedias with them. However, as the Commons grow, people upload (often identical) files from different Wikipedias and this is going to be a mess. I'd particularly like to be able to delete these duplicate images. As an example, I'm at the moment interested in organising maps on the Commons and there are two identical sets (see User:Richie/TODO) of maps of autonomous communities of Spain around. I started to clean this up, but being an administrator would speed up things considerably. I'm also an active contributer on de: and en:. – Richie 10:54, 7 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Dbenbenn has several qualities that I think would make him a great admin on the Commons. First, he's a workhorse.

==Sanbec==

I am bibliotecario (administrator) at the Spanish Wikipedia. I'm well known there for my work on images, persistently requiring users to identify source and license. Here I have uploaded some images, categorized some others, and denounced some lacking license information. Recently, I've started collaborating in the flag images normalization campaign. (Thanks to es:Usuario:Angus for the translation of this paragraph)

I promoted there Commons. Sorry for my poor english, but the Commons is multilingual, isn't it? --Sanbec 10:36, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Soy bibliotecario en la wikipedia en español. Allí soy bien conocido por mi labor con las imágenes, solicitando insistentemente a los colaboradores la identificación de su origen y licencia. Aquí he subido unas cuantas imágenes, he categorizado otras y he denunciado algunas carentes de licencia. Últimamente colaboro en la campaña de normalización de banderas.

    I don't see why there is supposed to be something special or different about admin status on commons, it's just another wikimedia project, with exactly the same kinds of admin tasks to perform.

I propose to make him an admin here because I am confident he will organise categories, clean up unlicensed images etc. --Paddy 16:50, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Thanks :-). I'm a wikipedian since 2002 (with a long break in 2003), mostly active in wp-de. In my opinion wm-commons is really a great project. Because I'm doing some maintaining work, it will be helpfull to get administrative rights. It will speed up some jobs (sometimes it's a little bit hard to get an admin on IRC). In my opinion especially some categories should be organized another way. I like to discuss this (like here) and then transform/realize it. If you don't know me, you can find a few more infos about me on my user page on commons or even more on my german user page. Alternatively, if you pay the travel expenses, I will come visit you and we can talk together with a cold beer (ok, perhaps chatting in IRC is more realistic...). --Avatar 17:27, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

==CryptoDerk==

I've been around Commons since early January, and I have about 120 edits here. Most of my contributions are uploads of images, though I have done some categorizing and sorting images, have been around the community areas, and have fixed vandalism. I'm more well known over on en where I have over 6000 edits and have been an administrator for about 6 months. I also started a project to assist in free content exchange between w:PlanetMath and Wikipedia. In terms of admin work there I patrol RC and am active on IRC all the time so in many cases I'm a "first responder" to various mass vandalisms. If made an administrator at commons I imagine I'd do much of the same, but I'd also likely assist in image deletions as necessary. CryptoDerk 07:17, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

  5. Oppose. Thanks for the remark, Ed. I find especially [8] disqualifies him as an admin. I also think that we should say that being an admin in another Wikimedia project is not sufficient to become admin here. Some people seem to have the attitude "I'm admin in en:, so give me your votes" which I don't like. — Richie 12:34, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

    Neutral - Blankfaze cleared explained this "bad" edit as an act of frustration, which I understand from looking at the history of the relevant article (but should not happen to an admin). I can't tell much about him from his activity here, so I'll abstain. -- Duesentrieb 00:39, 2 May 2005 (UTC)
  7. Oppose. I think that blankfaze is a great user, and a brilliant contributor, but I don't think that he's really cut-out for being a sysop here. I was originally merely not going to comment, but after he restored what I could not fail to interpret as a personal attack on someone who merely pointed out that he has had significant arguments beforehand, I felt that it had become necessary. I have, again, removed the personal attack. Sorry, blankfaze, but I don't think that sysopship is right for you. James F. (talk) 01:11, 2 May 2005 (UTC)

Besides, Blankfaze is an admin en w:en, which is another mark of trust from the English project. Now, maybe Blankfaze made some mistakes in the past, but I can't see anything like that here on the Commons, and that's what mainly matters. villy 13:03, 6 May 2005 (UTC)
  10. Oppose. No user page, no gallery of this user's contributed images. Only 135 edits here. Although being an admin on Wikipedia is a good prerequisite helpful as a qualification, it isn't sufficient reason for adminship here. Dbenbenn 15:54, 6 May 2005 (UTC)
    I prefer to maintain one user page. You can see it at en:User:Blankfaze. Also, you can see my gallery of uploaded images at en:User:Blankfaze/imagelist. All images uploaded to Commons are marked with a Commons logo. Blankfaze 17:34, 7 May 2005 (UTC)

Hi, I've been an administrator on de.wikipedia for a couple of months now, and have - while still uploading my own pictures as to be seen here - recently been doing more and more, well, administrative work on commons (mostly in Theatre buildings and related pages). My last passion is categorizing the many paintings from the Yorck project thematically (like in Category:Dance in art). Now and then, I find myself missing the "sysop buttons" for deleting mistyped categories or double entries myself. Some facts: I have about 2,900 edits on commons; around 8000 edits on de.wikipedia and some 450 edits on en.wikipedia. My languages are German (native), English (pretty fluent, I hope), and French (ever struggling). Please don't be upset about the fact that my commons talk page has been blocked - this is just due to the fact that is was constantly spammed by some idiots that also spam my German and English user pages. For questions, please use my German talk page as indicated. --AndreasPraefcke 19:41, 26 May 2005 (UTC)

Request temporary admin access for Polish 1.5 interface translation and tweaking. I have no idea how long this may take. A month should be more than enough, but I'll leave that decision to you.

===Joolz===

I've been a contributor to the commons for some months now; I've decided to put myself up for adminship because I want to help out with maintaining the commons, in particular, I've spent a lot of time tagging images which are missing licence information.

According to Kate's tool I've made 2810 edits since joining.

I've also edited the english wikipedia since October 2004, you can see my contributions there.

I've only been on Wikimedia Commons and Wikipedia for a few months, but in that time I have made 355 edits to Commons and over 1000 on Wikipedia. I really like working with images, and have uploaded a large number onto Commons which I took myself. You can see them all here. I have recently started working on Commons categories and articles. A couple of examples of my work are: Tours and Paeonia. I edit Wikipedia as Silversmith.

==Ruiz==

Well, according to editcount I have almost 500 edits in Commons as of August 8, 2005. I've uploaded more than a hundred pics about Mexican history and politics (most of them in the public domain), I've built categories, written copyright info, etc. I would like to clean the Mexican cats since most of them appear written in Spanglish, so being an admin would really easy the load. Ruiz 00:49, 9 August 2005 (UTC)

Votes[edit]

Comments: Administrators (on my understanding) should enforce consensus decisions made in project (not personal preferences). Why do you not follow Commons talk:Templates for galleries#Voting about language representation? EugeneZelenko 14:13, 9 August 2005 (UTC)

Well, first of all, I am willing to change the language representation in all my contribs if that is required, but the way I got it that the iso code as text is preferred, not something that should be enforced in every single page. Sadly, the vote was held during my summer break so I didn't have a chance to explain our situation. In Spanish, several iso codes such as de (German) or en (English) are actual words and they are somehow "problematic". de: means "of" or "from" and en: means "in", so if you get a picture, say, a company building and they see de: Deutschen Post they tend to think that it was taken from the actual website of the company, and that leads to a bunch of misunderstandings. Not everyone visiting the galleries is familiar with iso codes and not every Mexican casual visitor is used to see pics of his/her country under a foreign tag, so I used the icons to emphasize that it should not be taken literally.
The icons are, in fact, a representation of the same code and the text format used in the text labels is terribly unintituive for them, since is just a word in bold, think of seeing from:, in:, etc. in every single picture. But then again, if that needs to be changed I will do so, although I would preffer to change the color of the text at least. Nobody needs a rainbow, but at least something in drak grey or light blue, etc. Ruiz 17:30, 9 August 2005 (UTC)
  • I don't see where the problem is… In Portuguese "de:" also means from. But I never thought it meant "from" wherever I read it... So if they see a foreign flag in a picture of their country and see a weird language in from of the flag, they'll think it is in that country. LOL. That hypothetical guy must be really stupid. The flags also has another problem, some languages are spoken in more than one country. -PedroPVZ 04:51, 13 August 2005 (UTC)
Maybe I didn't get your point, but no one has used flags nor is advocating flags. What I used for a while were the icons with the iso-code, such as this one: Deutsch. I changed them all to text already in the cats I created, and the galleries are gonna be done by the weekend. I still think this is nitpicking when there are bigger priorities in the Mexican cat as a whole.Ruiz 06:33, 13 August 2005 (UTC) (withdrew)

==Datrio==

First of all, I don't have 100 edits (yet), so if anyone thinks this is a "hard" rule, simply delete my request. In any case, I'm requesting sysop status on Commons mainly to fight vandalism and spam. I'm already a steward, so I gave myself temporary sysop permissions a few times (four) to fight the Ass Puss vandal, who's being mainly active on Commons lately. Overally, I'm not really active on Commons - but you can't say I don't care for this project - I'm overally active in the Foundation (Wikimedia Steward, pl.Wikinews and Meta sysop). My main task would be administration and maintenace of Commons.

I'm still new here and many users probably don't even know me, but still - I'll try pushing my luck ;). Thank you in advance for all the votes, both positive and negative. Datrio 21:05, 3 August 2005 (UTC)

==ABCD==

I would like to be an administrator on commons for the sole purpose of protecting images here on commons that are being used on the English Main Page, to prevent vandalism. I am currently an administrator on en:. ABCD 20:06, 23 July 2005 (UTC)

Votes[edit]

  • Oppose, I'm afraid. I don't think we should be creating admins here unless they care about this project in itself. If your only reason for wanting to be an administrator here is because of stuff you do on some totally separate project (so to speak), that isn't good enough. Nothing personal. By the way, it's easy enough to protect Commons images from EN: simply download the image, and upload it locally to EN. Then delete a day later when it's no longer protected. That's safer too, because you don't have to trust Commons admins to leave the image protected. dbenbenn | talk 21:48, 25 July 2005 (UTC)

==Eleassar==

Hi! I have been a contributor here since 25 April 2005. Currently I have made over 720 edits (both as Eleassar777 and with my current username from June 18 onwards). I have contributed several images, done much work at adding translations to Slovenian and have put together the whole Slovenian version (of the project) as it stands now, including running the Slovenian version of the picture of the day for almost all the time. Otherwise I have a sysop status at Slovenian Wikipedija and am among the 1000 most active contributors on English Wikipedia, being active there since the second half of January.

As I have contributed significantly to this project and know it well, but also care very very much about it, I am requesting sysop status to be able to fight vandals should they appear on Slovenian pages of this project (it happened already), to guide Slovenian-speaking users if they needed any help and to allow Slovenian Wikipedija and this community to effectively communicate with each other. I would also like to improve the Slovenian translation of the user interface. --Eleassar Slovenia flag 300.png my talk 00:09, 4 August 2005 (UTC)

Since users across all Wikimedia projects are encouraged to upload images on Commons, but there are very few visible administrators on this project, I thought it might not hurt if there one or two more. Basically, I want to be able to speedy-rollback and delete vandalism, and block cross-project vandals. I have over 3000 edits on the English Wikipedia and over 200 edits on Commons.

, Pour tout vous dire ma principale raison pour soliciter votre confiance est mon confort personel. Je pense être un assez gros contributeur ici [10], et qui dit gros contributeur dit erreurs et donc statut d'adminstrateur car pourquoi laissez faire à d'autre ce que l'on peut faire soi-même ? Le nombre des contributions ne font pas, aujourd'hui un administrateur. Aussi, vu que beaucoup des administrateurs de langue française sont occupés par des tâches "supérieures", je m'engage à être ici, sur commons, comme je le suis wikipédia, un adminsitrateur au service des autres contributeurs. Pour moi wikimedia commons doit être exemplaire dans le sens où les fichiers que nous proposons doivent être absolument "libre" (et si possible en haute définition pour les images). Je n'ai pas d'appareil photo et toutes les images que j'ai uploadé ici sont compatibles avec commons avec une utilisation la plus large possible. Je ne suis pas parano avec les droits d'auteurs. Je ne suis pas juriste, mais je connais un peu le droit de la propriété intellectuelle, le respecte et veux le faire respecter. Mais je souhaite aussi en profiter pleinement et vous en faire profiter lorsque celui-ci m'y autorise.

 : For all to tell you my principal reason for asking your confience is my personel comfort . I think i have made lots of contributions here [11], and when you contribute a lot you make lots of mistakes and why let do with other what one can do yourself? The number of the contributions do not make, today an sysop. Also, considering many the administrators of French language are occupied by "higher" tasks, I engage with being here, on commons, as I am to in wikipédia, a sysop with the service of the other contributors. For me wikimedia commons must be exemplary in the direction where the files which we propose must be absolutely "free" (and if possible into high définition for the images). I do not have a camera and all the images which I upload here are compatible with commons policy with the broadest possible use. I am not parano with the royalties. I am not a lawyer, but I know a little the right of the intellectual property, respects it and want to make it respect. But I also wish to benefit from it fully and to make some to you profit when this one authorizes me there. (P.S. : i make this translation myself, if you want do do it best, please do it !)

For the last couple of weeks I have noticed that this user is asking people to provide a tag or a source to photos they upload. Anna has also been busy trying to give some structure to the category system. I am convinced that this is a trustworthy user who can be given more responsibilities.

Anna is also an administrator of Spanish Wikipedia, es:User:Cookie. So far, WikiCommons has only ony administrator who's native language is Spanish. On a related note, it has long been my impression that WikiCommons has more than its share of Spanish-speaking users who upload photos not published under a free license. Administrators who speak Spanish may be helpful to counter that.

Both of the edits cited date back to July, two months ago. I think it is very possible that she has learned the policies/realized her mistake since then. An absolutely different issue would be if this happened yesterday.--Orgullomoore 20:15, 27 September 2005 (UTC)
Also, regarding the Playa de la Barceloneta edit, besides it dating back 2 months, both Spanish and Catalan are official languages of Barcelona, Spain.--Orgullomoore 20:17, 27 September 2005 (UTC)
I don't think that Anna is violating any rule. As you point out, policy states native name. I don't know if native means official (it would support your statement) or name in the official language of the place (that way, Anna would not be violating anything). My personal opinion is that the policy is obscure (and can be interpreted) and your vote can be regarded as biased by your political option. --Ecemaml 10:24, 28 September 2005 (UTC)
  • Please assume good faith, avoid bias about my argument and do not distort my point of view. Assume that Commons's policies are different from spanish wikipedia. This a multilingual wiki and native names are preferred. I want to know if Anna it agrees with Common's policies and in her edits avoid her personal opinion. Please explain me if this message is agreed with Commons:Language policy:
Anna´s message from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:217.124.66.49: 
Please, stop duplicating categories, there is already a category:Autonomous communities of Spain with the bulk  of the  
communities in it, no need for another named in Spanish with separated articles. It also existed a  Category:Islas Baleares, so   
Illes Balears is redundant and unnecessary. Eivissa is the vernacular name,  understood in Spain but not outside, therefore it is  
now a redirect to Ibiza and also, no need of having a Majorca,  Mallorca, Minorca and Menorca. Let's be coherent, this is Commons 
and articles must be easy to find and understand  for any foreigners who ignore the different languages in Spain. Anna 
01:14, 20 July 2005 (UTC)

Pau, your statement is laughable. Aren't you one of the guys that violate wikipetiquette in es.wikipedia whenever appears there?

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I believe Anna to be among the fairest-minded administrators I've ever worked with, and to the best of my knowledge she has no linguistic or political agenda to push. The allegedly broken rule on endonymy is ambiguous, in that both Catalan and Spanish are officially-spoken languages in Catalonia and the Balearic islands, as are Galician and Spanish; this should be clarified in policy before any heated arguments about her fitness for the position is called into question (that being said, I'm for the Catalan and Galician toponyms).

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I'm against what she is doing with the toponyms. If you want to put the official name of a town, you must put both languages and not only in Spanish (Alacant/Alicante, Castelló de la Plana/Castellón de la Plana, Eivissa/Ibiza, and so on), because of bilinguism of these Communities, but there are some towns that have only a Catalan, Galician or Basque toponym (you can see it in the road signs) like Lleida (not Lérida) or Girona (not Gerona) or Sanxenxo (not Sanjenjo).

Since there are people needed that can delete obvious copivio, logos, etc. and Category:Unknown is growing bigger and bigger and pictures have been in there for months. I suggest this voluntary and great photographer to give us a hand. He always tries to compromise and tries to do his best and I will always support him in his doing if it is a questions, help, or anything else. --Paddy 00:20, 13 September 2005 (UTC)

I'm a photographer and paddy has asked me for help to delete pictures with bad license. sorry for my bad English, I'm German and speak better Spanish or Czech. In the de WP I have more then 600 Pictures, I have uploaded all in de WP, because I did not find categories here and was confused which one to choose. Marcela 00:33, 13 September 2005 (UTC)
Speaking for myself I see Ralf as a great contributor and he has found his way to commons. It took some time but he is getting more and more familiar with the place. It took me some time too and nobody is perfect. I am trying my best to start him off with the obvious stuff and we than we will see what is next. He is very willing to learn more and I am sure he will do great work on commons once he knows how to get stuff done as an administrator here, which has been a completely new experience for me too (as a former de sysop). Primarily I think he is a contributor and a great one too but I could use a little hand now and than. --Paddy 01:00, 13 September 2005 (UTC)

Short info about my involvement in Wikimedia projects: I'm a Wikipedian since August 2001, a sysop on English wikipedia, Polish wikipedia, Kashubian wikipedia and Polish wiktionary, and a bureaucrat on Polish wikipedia. I've been also involved in software development (math mode, some server administration, maps), but not much lately, and I'm operating bots Tawbot (on Polish wikipedia and Polish wiktionary mostly) and Summerbot (RC patrol for Polish wikipedia). For full transparency, the most recent cases were my actions were considered controversial by some:

  • Tawbot performed a correction of links to redirects, about 100k edits, on Polish Wikipedia. As a lot more redirects than expected were broken, many people complained about its actions. There was even a vote to stop the bot, but most people voted to let it finish, and clean it later.
  • Without any formal authority to do so (there were no procedures for such things on Polish Wikipedia), except for a quick poll, I banned a wikipedia troll Kwiecień (something like a Polish equivalent of Lir) for 2 weeks (later extended because he tried to ignore the ban) for a cooling-down period. Some people protested the way this ban was implemented, but almost nobody protested banning Kwiecień. The ban worked fine, and the temperature on the Polish wikipedia went down. Kwiecień returned after the ban, but his trolling seems to be a lot less effective. There were some attempts at implementing formal conflict resolution procedures on the Polish Wikipedia, but nothing is there yet.

On Commons I'm mostly uploading random photos I make and organizing them.

That should be a good enough reason to trust me not to screw anything here.

Now, why should I be a sysop on Commons.

  • I do quite a few edits here and it's useful sometimes. I might have done fewer edits/uploads on Commons than average candidate, but read further :-)
  • Quite often I (or my bots) find copyvio images on Polish Wikipedia that are uploaded to Commons. What I usually do is usually informing whichever Commons admin I see on #pl.wikipedia, it would be easier if I could simply delete them.
  • I'd like to implement this proposal - Commons:Village_pump#Practical_multilingual_messages to make the Commons more friendly to users of languages other than English.
  • I think about operating a bot that would move thousands of images from Polish wikipedia to Commons. Polish wikipedia is no-fair-use, so there's little reason to have anything uploaded there. Of course all images would have to be copyright-tagged, used and verified by someone. Sysop rights would really help with such actions. Taw 22:11, 4 October 2005 (UTC)

I'm participating with commons since 2004-11-02 (since 2004-10-10 I'm user at Polish Wikipedia, since 2005-05-24 I have sysop abilities on Polish Wikipedia), this was when we have gotten information (on Polish Wikipedia), that there was created such project to give possibilities to share images and other multimedia across all MediaWiki projects. Since that time I always place images created myself on commons.

Creating images I take care to prepare them for international use, so there are numbers to mark something (no text descriptions) (i.e. Image:Robal.png).

I have done also special pages, where anyone can order image, here is page for Coat of Arms or here for general diagrams Diagrams.

There was a big problem with vector graphic on MediaWiki, but since last month we can place SVG files, so I'm preparing to replace my PNG formated images on SVG vector images, in this proces there are sometimes problems that wiki doesn't render them correct. So there was many situations in which I have placed SVG image and saw that there is mistake in rendering, because there was some internal "error" in file format, so I had to change image and place it again (sometimes many times till it will look OK, after wiki rendering). That is why I ask you for sysop abilities, to be able to clean by myself after such mistaken uploads. Collection of images I have placed on Commons is quite big, so there can be many situations, when uploaded SVG file will not be correctly rendered and there will be need to upload new one without error making parts and delete that error causing file.

This month I will have my MSc final exam, so now I have some break, after that I will start operation of replacing my artworks (PNG into SVG).

Here some other my works: Benedict XVi CoA,1(images at the top of page),2, 3,4, 5,6,7, and many others.

Also often new user have some problems with uploading images (and co-cases, i.e. right, licensing), I try to present them the idea of commons and I'm giving them advices how to participate in this project, that is also the puropse why sysop abilities would be useful, because sometimes others ask you to help them, by changing something. -PioM EN DE PL 19:29, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

I'm active within the Wikimedia Commons since 14. Jan. 2005 (first edit; my current number of edits should be also ok ;-) ) and I am involved in:

My mother language is German but I do speak English (and poor French) als well. Apart from that you can find more personal info about me and many (but not all) of my "Wikimedia Universe" activities at my german userpage in de.wikipedia at de:Benutzer:Arnomane (in German). I'm also sysop in de.wikipedia.

I have a strong "copyright only" and "free images only" position but I don't want to enforce this against but with all involved people: I am always trying to find solutions for indvidual problems (most times helping creating or finding alternative free content). I'm strictly against restricting Wikimedia Commons images apart it is absolutely required by law (here: other than copyright) and if the image is useful for a Wikimedia project.

I want to be an admin at Wikimedia Commons as I want to help with licensing issues, image deletions and related things as I think we need more helping hands for that job. Arnomane 11:08, 28 October 2005 (UTC)

I'm an admin on EN with over 16,000 edits. I've uploaded 500+ free images to Commons (and EN), 60+ videos, and 5+ audio files. You can see my free images list (and gallery), my free videos list, and my comparatively short free audio list. I also have 23 Featured Pictures on EN, either by me or uploaded by me. My most recent endeavor has been to expand "Geography of" articles for all the countries, and include at least 3 maps/satellite photos on each page. In that respect I've added dozens more free images to Commons (which haven't been added to the lists above). My next goal will probably be to expand every "History of" article into multiple pages, adding free images to all of them.

Thanks for your time. --brian0918 13:28, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

I've been a contributor to Wikimedia projects, starting with the English Wikipedia, since 26 December 2005. I have been an administrator there since 2 June 2005 At Commons my first upload was in January 2005 - Image:BridgnorthCliffRailway-looking-down.jpg, I've made over 430 other uploads since then (almost all of them are in category:Photos by Chris McKenna). Recently I've been doing a lot of categorisation work, both of my images and those of others.

If I was an administrator here then I would use it as I use my adminship at en.wp - helping out where I can. For example I would clear out (after checking of course!) the awaiting speedy-deletion category, and close some old deletion debates. I would obviously use it to delete mistakes I make (the name of a file on my hard disk is usually very different to the name that is suitable for here, but occasionally I forget to change it). I would also like to implement non-controversial changes to mediawiki pages that have been made at en and found to be good (for example making the error message displayed when you go to your monobook.js file for the first time friendlier).

Also, I check the village pump regularly and like to be able to help users directly there rather than giving an answer that says that they have to wait even longer. Thryduulf 23:07, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

I nominate Jcornelius for adminship. Jcornelius has 4000+ edits on the commons and uploaded 750+ media files. He is also admin in de. In comparison to others (like me, oh my god) he is young in age, but sometimes I wish, others will take an example on his (usefull) productivity. His main work area is subway-related stuff and the city Berlin but he also has other interests. Main reason for nominating him is, that he re-organises categories while transferring lot of de stuff into the commons. So he needs to ask admins constantly to delete stuff. IMHO it will be reasonable to grant him admin rights. I talked to him about this topic and I also emphasized, that we need admins who will do work in the main topics of working on deletion requests and unfree tagged images. He was happy to agree. I notified him of this post. --Avatar 21:18, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose I had a conflict with him here on commons and I thought I could forgive and forget. I changed of mind based on the following thoughts. His change that time was utter nonsense! He even forced a move here move there war until I blocked the page. Even after two other people and me gave him many arguments he did not understand. OK that is the past. Next thing is that I see no point to give someone who radically disrespects advice from experienced users like e.g. histograf any sysop status. IMHO a good indicator track down someone who has simply not understood copyright and does not ask for advice but insists on his opinion. All typical pubertal behaviour. I do not oppose younger sysops in general. I worked together with a sysop from de on commons today who is even younger. Good ideas bright mind! But we were a team and there is no "I" in team! Last but not least I do not see his commons experience. Usually if in doubt or if on has a difficult problem the matter must be tackled by asking other people. I do not see this kind of behaviour from him. Furthermore Image:Berlin Naturkundemuseum Brachiosaurus henningsphoto de.jpg does he really know that photos in a non public places are not free?

Thanks Avatar for the nomination. Paddy: I asked in the german IRC channel, there they told me that pixelquelle is allowed. Sorry, if it's not possible. en:Image:BerlinSchoenefeldAirport.jpg: I trust Morwen, because she's an important and trustable person in the English Wikipedia therefore: Why not? Image:Berlin Naturkundemuseum Brachiosaurus henningsphoto de.jpg Yes, I know that (normally) photos at these places are not allowed. But did you know that Lars Hennings, the author of this photo, is a professional photographer? He asked at the museum, so I thought that image would be okay. All other are sophistries, e.g. advertising image. I don't saw that.. pubertal behaviour – no comment --Jcornelius 21:37, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

To remind you: AFAIK Dab., AndreasP and I (all administrators here) have have been telling you in the IRC how naming on commons works. You did not listen to any of us and moved the article according to your needs while the discussion was going on. As I said I would have forgotten. But since you want to know I tell you why I call your behaviour pubertal behaviour. greetings --Paddy 21:51, 20 December 2005 (UTC)
Just a quick reminder: from 500 images I had a look at in the special log 12 (2,4% even though not all of the 500 uploads have been "really" new images) are either borderline or clear ©-vio and one of them has been deleted. AFAIK no Image of mine has been deleted so far because of ©-vio. I have been working here for more than one year. greetings --Paddy 22:09, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

I am an admin on the English and Latin wikipedias (English RfA, Latin was by personal request), and would like also to be a sysop on Commons, for the basic purpose of helping to maintain a tidy ship. My immediate spur for requesting today however is that I was getting HTTP errors trying to upload a file, and upon it working, I discovered it had worked the previous times too, and I would like to delete those duplicate uploads :-) [12:57, 9 December 2005]

I think here is necessary not only more admins who talks Spanish (there are only 2 Spanish-speakers today), but also people with a high sense of multilingualism, as Common is. In fact, my mother tongue is Catalan, a European language wich is minorized nowadays. Briefly, I'm contributing here helping to users from Catalan wikipedia when they upload something here and doesn't notice correctly the source and the license of the media file. My personal contribs in Commons, according to Kate's editcounter, are more than 1200 files uploaded, and more than 3500 editings (2500 of them on description section on pages of images), since December 2004. I'm experienced about wiki code, wikimedia world, as I started to be admin on Catalan Wikipedia in January 2005. Joanot Martorell 10:46, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Votes[edit]

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Commons does need more admins, particularly ones who can speak languages that are under-represented in the current admin pool. However, an admin does need to understand and work within commons policies. From what I can tell from your talk page (although I cannot speak Spanish or Catalan so I may not have got the whole picture), your actions with regard to languages on Commons have been rather controversial. I also note a request for mediation less than a month ago regarding a dispute related to languages. At this time this does not make me feel like you would make a good admin here. Thryduulf 12:40, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Sure! This request was made by me because of a user who was deleting every text in Catalan on description pages because of political backgrounds. I wouldn't made this mediation request if I didn't know the policies on Commons. My request was made on Village Pump, as everyone can check [12].--Joanot Martorell 17:12, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

All these reasons make me to think he should be a very good candidate for administrator here. However I vote neutral because in several discussions I had the impression that his ideology has been quite influential. I would like to encourage him to make an effort on neutrality if he administrates commons, doesn't matter his ideology, but just to leave it home when he uses the administration powers, then he would have my total support. --Javier Carro 09:13, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

I have over 500 total edits, and have uploaded over 50 photos (many of them just this week, to improve our Tennis page) and take part in COM:VP and COM:FPC. I speak English and intermediate Chinese. I really like the commons project ideals and community, and I am interested in helping out with admin-type duties such as copyvio deletion. (I am pretty familiar with copyright basics, and do pretty well on Australia PD issues.) I try to promote commons on en: as well (I wrote most of w:Wikipedia:Commons).

I have a total number of edits of 479 and image uploads of 189. While I've got over 4,000 edits at English Wikipedia and 2,235 at Irish language Wikipedia I've no interest in becoming an admin in either place. However, I've come to realize it's time for me to offer myself for more availability. Disputes at Commons seem to be less subjective than on the wikipedia side, given the nature of media. I'm more interested in cleaning up, deleting marked files, replacing image usage on redundant files, etc.; however I would be available for other action if required. I read French and Spanish fluently, and have a modest level of conversation in either language.

I'm usualy trying to fix problem, but without admin's tools it is not always possible. It would also makes easier to me to help users from pl:wiki who ask me sometimes to do something with their problems in here. And last reason - when I'm uploading potos, as a human, I sometimes makes mistakes.

Hello all commoners. I've had an account here since the end of June 2005 and have 700+ edits. I've uploaded close to 200 pictures, maybe 60-70% of which are self-shot photographs, rest mainly photos and paintings found elsewhere. In addition to uploading, I've worked with categorizing - areas like Helsinki ('twas a mess), opera and classical music and sports-related categories. So far a bulk of my wikitime has been spent at the fi-wiki, where I've had an account since Sep 2004 - I have about 10,000 edits there. I'd also like to think that I've learned from past errors like uploading an old pic with unclear age-related copyright and now know the ropes well enough. I can help with cleanup, categorization and reorganizing. Commons is great and I want to help it become even smoother and better instead of it just getting bigger and bigger. hope to hear from U, .

Hi, I'd like to become an admin. I'm a trusted member, having been here since May 2005, during which time I have uploaded lots of media files (some self-taken, some from other wikipedias; for a selection see user:Fred chessplayer/gallery), creating a category structures at category:Sweden and helping out at Deletion Requests and commons:Village pump. / Fred Chess 20:20, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

I've been here for few months now (see my stats) and had absolutely no disputes whatsoever. I mostly do moving images from en to commons, recategorising in subcategories of Category:Croatia, requesting deletions, etc. I don't remember any category I requested to be deleted got the {{delete}} tag removed. On the other hand, my talk page's empty (is that really a bad thing?), I uploaded quite a small number of images (as I said, I mostly mess with categories), and I'm not an admin on en (I was nominated, but I refused the nomination because I didn't feel ready for it; now I do feel ready for it but I will not do a self-nom as I don't miss the admin tools that bad). On the other other hand, there's no Commons admin speaking hr or sr (the sh tag I have on my user page means I'm fluent in both hr and sr), and the stuff I do on Commons is realy the admin stuff so I'd realy benefit from those tools. If I get elected to adminship, I'll broaden my field of action to Category:Serbia and Category:Bosnia and Herzegovina (note that I didn't have major disputes on en, a Serb nominiated me for an admin there). --Dijxtra 22:14, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I'm grm_wnr, mainly active on en, and have been an admin there for about eight months, without controversy. I've used Commons for about a year, but did not become really active here until about two months ago, with a spike in contributions this month, when I cleaned up most of the pages surrounding Apple Macintosh. I've also started to regularily check out community processes like COM:DEL and COM:VP. That objective is nearing completion now, but I decided I quite like it here on Commons and would like to keep contributing heavily. As an admin, I would attend to some of the "dangerous" cleanup categories like {{copyvio}} and {{unknown}}. More importantly, I plan to move images with bad, wrong and misleading names to better ones a lot. Of course, I will be happy to respond to your questions and comments. grmwnr 09:46, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

I'm a fairly active user on Commons; I'm here nearly every day, even if I don't actually make an edit (looking for images, etc.) I'm also an admin on en.wikipedia, en.wikiquote, and Meta. My basic reason for requesting adminship is to help out with some of the deletion backlog; I frequently run into images that are tagged for speedy deletion (for instance, the .png images that have been replaced with .svg and are no longer used on any projects). I don't anticipate becoming one of the "power admins" here, but I would like to be able to help out by taking care of things as I see them. Additionally, I'm usually in the Commons IRC channel, and would be available to the users who frequently come into the channel looking for a Commons admin.

I want to run for adminship mainly to help out in the backlog we have with nosource and copyright images, and to help out with newusers and to help out with Deletion Requests.

My edits: [18] on Commons, I'm editor from pl.wiki. I'm working there with templates, running a bot (WarXboT) and writing mostly technical things. In december I've changed all flags used on pl.wiki to SVG format and now my target is to completly change all possible graphics to SVG format (dreams). Now I'm working on commons - I'm drawing SVG versions of Coats of Arms of Polish cities and in the same time I'm unlinking old versions of COAs. I want sysop rights because it will be a little bit faster if I can delete unused graphics of changed COAs.

    • I have all orginals on my hard disk - I know that it is possible, that those graphics may be needed, so I want not to delete them. There is one reason for my fast action: I think that the project is very very big (more than 640 wikis ?) and lot of users is lazy so if we won't delete unlinked, redundant images in short period they will propagate back into wikis. I have a sample of this - I nearly completely unlinked redundant flags in PNG format using SVG versions, but they are propagating back. And the last thing: lots of this COAs which I work with are simple copied from first page in the network found by google and signed PD-Polishsymbol and personally I do not agree which such politics :P --WarX 08:31, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

==User:Crux==

I want to propose User:Crux (see also de:Benutzer:Crux) for adminship on Wikimedia Commons as he will be a huge help working up the large amount of wrongly licensed images in Wikimedia Commons. He is admin in http://de.wikipedia.org for ages and is a tireless worker at the copyvio front in de.wikipedia.org beside lots of article work (see e.g. [19]) and knows the subject very well. His image clean ups in de.wikipedia were one of the key reasons that made the German Wikipedia on DVD possible and some people that were influenced by Crux' hard work are now admins in Wikimedia Commons (e.g. me) and tried Crux to convince from time to time candidating for adminship in Commons. ;-) In the past he did also work in Commons when it was related to his clean up work in de.wikipedia and does know Commons internals. Crux did not have any objections to my proposal. Arnomane 00:39, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

==User:Franz Xaver==

I'd like to propose User:Franz Xaver for adminship on Wikimedia Commons. He is very active in sorting plant pictures, building categories and gallery pages, finding misidentified plant pictures (!) and is broadly spoken one of the top experts we have in this field. Recently he asked why it often take ages before an image in the commons gets deleted after he insertes a deletion request. Sometimes we really have a large queue here. He is willing to help - and I think he should get the permission to do this.

Franz is very experienced. He did more than 7000 edits in the commons since 12/2004 and more than 11000 edits in the German Wikipedia since 05/2003. -- aka

Thanks to aka for proposing me. Apart from uploading my own photos, my activity will concentrate on improving arrangement of plant stuff. Up to now, I checked Category:Malvales and Category:Fabales and much of Category:Asterales (still under construction). Successively I will extend my activity to other groups of plants: checking ID and license, rotating images, arranging the stuff in a consistent order. In my opinion, images are easier to find, if there is as little redundancy as possible, and if the principles of order are obvious. In this course, sometimes something has to be deleted. Eventually this happens anyway, but it often needs quite a long time, even in cases, where rules for speedy deletion apply. So I think that commons does not have enough administrators.

I've been active on Wikimedia Commons for a couple of months, creating categories and galleries and contributing my own photos and scans wherever I can (see my user page).

I'm familiar with copyright issues and license tags, and I've translated Commons:Licensing into German. Being an administrator would certainly make my work on commons a little easier.

I am nominating skINMATE for adminship. He has over 1500 edits and has been here for around 10 months. I noticed he was doing a lot of cleanup with the category system, and we need all the users like this that we can get. pfctdayelise (translate?) 00:10, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

== User:Dbenbenn for bureaucrat ==

Vote

Alas, User:Aurevilly is resigning his bureaucratship [25]. I hope he comes back soon, but until then, I'd like to volunteer to replace Villy as bureaucrat. I've been an admin here since April (nom), and I've been quite active, with 13000 edits. As a bureaucrat, I'd have two extra jobs: making users admins based on the nominations on this page, and processing the requests at Commons:Changing username.

Hello. I've been an active contributor to the Commons since 2005-12-04. My babel is hu, en-4, de-1. Aside from frequenting the Pump, translating Picture/Media of the Day captions and uploading pictures, my specialization is thorough organization (ie. neat-freak) and Hungarian translation. Being an admin would enable me to complete the Hungarian translation of the Commons (including MediaWiki messages, for example) and serve as the first Hungarian-speaking admin, as well as pursuing a gradual restructuring of the Commons to make it a leaner, meaner image-storing database. —UED77 04:48, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

I started editing here on 6 August 2005 after finding that this site would collect free images and files usable at other Wiki sites. I have edited more than 150 times. (My edit count may not update immediately. See also my contributions.) As a native Chinese speaker using both traditional (native) and simplified Chinese (advenced but not native), I have added Template:PD-PRC-exempt, Template:PD-MacaoGov, Template:PD-ROC-exempt, Template:PD-ROC-Traffic Indicating Lines, and Template:PD-ROC-Traffic Signs, i.e. Chinese, Macanese, and Taiwanese public domain tags based on the tags used at Wikisource.

After learning how to upload images, I am adding images to Category:Diagrams of road signs of the Republic of China tagged Template:PD-ROC-Traffic Signs. This major project is in connection to my work in the page s:zh:道路交通標誌標線號誌設置規則 (Regulations on Establishing Traffic Signs and Indicating Lines) at Chinese Wikisource. I have finished uploading Warning Signs and I am continuing on more images.

I am also an administrator at Chinese Wikipedia, Chinese Wiktionary, Chinese Wikisource (bureaucrat), English Wikisource, and multilingual Wikisource (five Wiki sites). I would like to apply for adminship here to serve the community better based on my experience as an admin at these sites. I will continue my good works as well.

My language Babel is: zh-TW, zh-CN-3, en-3, fr-1.Jusjih 17:05, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

I nominate Lmbuga as sysop candidate on the Commons. He is a very active contributor to the Commons -over 2100 editions (1250+ image uploads)- since 2005-09-03. Lmbuga is a bureaucrat at the Galician wikibooks (he started the project and has demonstrated to be a valuable administrator). In the Galician wikipedia he has been involved in everything concerning images and graphic resources. Babel: gl-N, es-N, pt-3, en-1. Multilingualism: at the moment there are no Galician admins on Commons and he would serve as the first Galician-speaking admin. Lmbuga has been particularly involved in photographing Galicia, nature, landscape,... I believe Lmbuga can be a good sysop for Commons. --Prevert(talk) 07:22, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Usually, a person's uploads speak for themselves. Sockpuppetry isn't much of an issue here.

== User:Arnomane for CheckUser ==

As User:Ausir pointed out that there is need for more than one checkuser and asked me if I would volunteer [27] additionally to my request for becoming a bureaucrat I decided doing so after carefully reading meta:CheckUser. Of course I hope that I will not need this tool and hope that we can keep the numbers of serious sock puppet problems in Commons low by other means -in a general atmosphere of collaboration. However as there was quite some time ago an incident with evil sock puppets of a user coming from de.wikipedia (luckily up to now this would have been the only case out of my limited perspective where Checkuser would have been adequate) I decided to candidate. However please carfully decide on your own upon my request. Arnomane 19:14, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Same description as above :).

I am mostly active on w:fa:User:Kaveh and the sole bureaucrat on b:fa:Special:Listadmins and s:fa:Special:Listadmins. As it happens, we often run across articles about Iranian/Persian related subjects with deleted images, so it would help if someone more intimate with the area helped in tagging/recovering them.

== Requests for bot authorization ==
I add this section here because according to Commons:Bots, this is where said topic is to be debated.--Orgullomoore 11:32, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Orgullobot[edit]

This message is a duplicate of the one in the Village Pump

Hello all. Orgullobot is a bot based on the pywikipedia framework. It can do interwikis, category moves, disambiguations, and all that other stuff that isn't useful to Commons ;), plus whatever I program it to do. I'm interested in fulfilling the Commoners' bot needs, and I've hinted at bot status before, but have never made a formal request. I've run es:User:Orgullobot on es: for nearly a year now, and the community seems to like it there. Any complaints I've had have been dealt with. Therefore, I venture to ask, is there anyone here who opposes my requesting a flag on Meta? And additionally, what are some bot tasks (in other words, repetitive and tedious) that you would like to see automized on Commons? Some things the bot has done in the past include:

  • Periodically resetting the Spanish sandbox
  • Detected all of the Images on es: that shared a filename with Commons which were then renamed and reuploaded or deleted if they were a duplicate.
  • Detected all the wiki page that had a fruitless image link (the ones that give something like This image doesn't exist)
  • Worked some on the little featured article stars
  • Tons of category moves
  • Tons of interwiki work
  • Etc. :-D

Thank you--Orgullomoore 11:32, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Reasons why you think you should be an admin.

I am a very dedicated user to the Commons and have contributed over hundreds and hundreds of self-made images to the Commons (last count almost 3000 images), all releasing them into the public domain. I intend to contribute much more over the course of time. Apart from that I am busy cleaning up categories and putting images into the right categories or articles. I would love to help out more with replacing redundant images and also in helping with deleting images that have been tagged for deletion. I notice that there is a considerable backlog with the "deletion" and the "redudant" category and I would love to help out there. I also search images that are missing a source or do not seem up to code, something that I am already doing as well on the English-language Wikipedia, where I am a sysop. I am also a member of the image team there, therefore I have knowledge about copyright tags and the rules concerning images. Therefore I kindly request administratorship in order to help out more and make the Commons more efficient. I also try to interlink Commons images into the normal Wikipedia articles as much as possible, in order to make most efficient use of memory space. Feel free to ask me anything, thank you.

Responses[edit]

Thank you for pointing that out, yes of course I would not go on a deletion spree and I know one has to be careful, but whatever backlogs exist I will help out. Orphaned images? I thought I had none, odd.... the last time I checked those that were orphaned were all tagged as redundant by me, so I don't know if someone finally took care of those. For example I would also help out with replacing redundant images, which I have been doing as well. Gryffindor 08:46, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

I want to propose User:Flominator for adminship on Wikimedia Commons. He is a hard-working Administrator on German Wikipedia since Aug 2005. He has more than 24000 Edits and cleaned up the unused images among others [30]. He also started transferring lots of de: images to Commons, so he also has experience with Commons [31]. As there's still a lot of work to do on Commons and he is willing to help cleaning up, I think he is a good candidate. Flominator did not have any objections to my proposal. --Crux 18:54, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

I'm a sysop on Polish Wikipedia since July 15, 2005. Apart from usual fighting with vandalism I take care of local Images for deletion and recently I joined image cleanup project - that's why I got more interested in handling similar problems here. With admin status I'll be able to quickly handle files uploaded from pl: with incorrect license. Because I'm also a stock.xchng member I promise to put special attention on guarding COM:SXC policy.

I stand for a administrator on Wikimedia Commons. My first contribution on Wikimedia Commons was in April 23rd, 2005.

There is not many admins who understand Japanese or/and Korean languages, so I want to help admins to understand Japanese and Korean languages, and Japanese or Korean language users join to Commons.

Recently I translate templates on Commons into Japanese and/or Korean languages in order to promote polyglot of Wikimedia Commons.

If you have a question, please give me it without reserve on English or Japanese or Korean. Thank you. LERK (Talk / Contributions) 15:29, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

User:Duffman has asked me to apply for adminship at the Commons (1). I am currently an admin at no.wikipedia, where I promote Commons heavily. I am also moving lots of images from no.wikipedia to Commons, hoping that some day no.wikipedia will be without any locally stored images.

I am from Norway, and I do not think there are any Commons administrators whom speak Norwegian. A Norwegian Commons admin has been wanted at no.wikipedia, for the purpose of guiding Norwegian newbies and to improve the somewhat dodgy impression some of the Norwegian contributers have of Commons.

I speak Norwegian natively, and English quite well. I read Esperanto (the international language) decently, and I also read German ok (even though there has been som years since I learnt it at the Gymnasium). Kjetil r 20:49, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

Btw, I almost daily check Special:Newimages, and often spot clear copyvios I want to delete speedily. Kjetil r 22:05, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

I have 483 edits of which 204 are uploads.

I would like to be an admin because I am an admin on English Wikipedia and have been doing some updating there of Template:Did you know. Part of the procedures when updating the template are to preotect images and frequently these images are uploaded to commons. For further information see w:Wikipedia:Did you know/Guide#Pictures. I would find it more streamlined if I had admin access here too so as I could protect and unprotect images appearing on the main page of en:wikipedia.

I would be happy to use admin tools (if granted) to help with clearing up copyvios and have done some copyvio work on en:wikipedia.

I agree to follow relevant policies and respect consensus of the Commons' users. AYArktos 09:52, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Further to my comments above on copyvios above and to clarify, on en:wikipedia, among other admin tasks, I have contributed to clearing speedy deletions.

Comment: One doesn't start off well with an RFA if one immediately reverts an admin. Cary "Bastique" Bass parler voir 23:12, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

That image is British Crown Copyright and as far as I am aware we cannot use these on Commons (the user who placed the license falsely tagged many other images). Arniep 23:31, 11 May 2006 (UTC)
Hmm, Bas, what's your point? You didn't exactly provide a rationale for your action yourself. To me it looked like Arniep's speedy-tag was in order - the photo has been here since Oct 2005 and is still without a source. Keep in mind that Administrator access is not meant to imply editorial authority on the project.. cheers, --Lumijaguaari (моє обговорення) 23:38, 11 May 2006 (UTC)
I did explain my action, on Arniep's talk page. Furthermore, we're trying to establish trustworthiness among the projects and this is not going to happen if we start deleting images and leaving redlines on Wikipedia pages. There's more work required in removing images than just clicking delete, and anyone that wants to run for Admin at Commons needs to understand this. Cary "Bastique" Bass parler voir 02:09, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
I did say that I intended to replace the image on all the projects. A problem with removing images before they are deleted is that other users will often restore the image creating much more trouble than there would be if it was clear that the image had been deleted. Arniep 09:53, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
When you are removing the image, you should of course give an explanation and giving a link to your Commons userpage is a good idea if you don't have an account in that project. You can use my translations for edit summaries. They state quite clearly what the problem is. If a local user is foolish enough to put an image back in, when we delete the image, then they will get a redlink. That's fine, that's their problem. But we can't leave redlinks in the first place. pfctdayelise (translate?) 00:26, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks that's a useful page. Arniep 01:06, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
Well I feel very sad that I don't seem to be getting any support here, merely because I restored a speedy delete notice for an image that should have been deleted long ago. There are currently over 1400 images excluding articles in the speedy deletion category, many of which have been there a considerable amount of time. Unless the speedy delete category is dealt with in a much more effective way then people will continue to abuse the system as many users believe if an image is on Commons then it must be free and users will continue to upload violations in the knowledge that the image may be there a considerable amount of time before it is deleted when they will come back and upload it again knowing it will again take a long time to be deleted. Arniep 15:10, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I see nothing wrong with his above actions. Images should be tagged as nsd, regardless of whether they are in use or not. But that debate is beside the point here. ed g2stalk 15:46, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
It was actually a speedy delete as all copy vios can be tagged as such. Arniep 16:10, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support British crown copyright can't be used on Commons. I find User:Bastique's rationale for the contrary distinctly unconvincing, since it's an awfully minor issue; isn't it the responsibility of the deleting admin to check for links from other projects?

    Anyway, for the record, I'm mainly active on en:w, not Commons, and have very few edits here. Just chipping in my opinion, discount if you like. —Simetrical (talk • contribs) 04:49, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

I have checked Template:Speedydelete and it states "consider checking usage of this file on all Wikimedia projects before deleting.".
As only admins can delete, the template does seem to indicate presently that only admins should check before deleting, not that non admins must check before tagging as Bastique stated. So I feel, really, that Bastique's criticism was rather unjustified. Arniep 10:21, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose --Strongly Oppose. I refer folks to an instance of his practices evidenced on this topic where a half dozen users have been forced to engage in reversion wars with him-User_talk:Denniss/Archive_1#Removing_images_from_categories. DennisS is a valuable member of Commons and has made significant contributions. It is good for folks like DennisS to champion a POV, even when it is at odds with even a majority of others. However the method he deals with disputes is ill suited for those in the position of an admin. For example, he is at odds with the majority of Commons contributors on the contentious issue of whether an image should be a member of ANY category if the image is also part of a gallery article. There is no concensus on a policy but a 2 to 1 majority favors some role for categories on image pages. Here is the link to the discussion on this issue. Ok fine- taking a particular position does not disqualify anyone from being an admin. What is pertinent is whether we want folks that conduct themselves on issues this way to have Admin powers. Despite the fact the categories vs. articles conversation resulted in a live and let live outcome, he has sought to impose his own POV. He has stripped images of all of their categories, then nominated the now emptied categories for speedydelete since they were empty. With adminstrator powers, he could and I suspect would- simply delete them. He has done this not just with my contributions but those of many others. Particularly alarming, in response to my many calls for dialog, as well as those of others, he responds simply with further mass reversions. I strongly oppose his nomination for adminstratorship until such time as he demonstrates a respect for the opinions of others, and a willingness to enter into dialog, and evidence of good faith to seek compromise with those he disagrees. -Mak 19:14, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
    • What a surprise, another personal attack from this category fanatic, his sole work in the Commons is dupliating article content into categories without keeping them both synchronized. I only reverted those changes duplicating articles into categories though I should have stayed away from this stupid editwar. It is also a common rule in all wikis if an Admin is involved in a conflict he should not use his powers to fight the other side. --Denniss 21:51, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
As I said, I have a great deal of respect for you DennisS, and I am indebted to you for the work you have contributed here. I apologize if you took it as a personal attack. I am opposed not because of your personality, or your positions. I would oppose even if you were a friend and held the same POV as myself. I think your conduct with the multiple users who complained of your tactics on your talk page about your category blanking (see reference above) provides ample evidence of the areas of growth needed before you are entrusted with administrative powers. -Mak 22:53, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Denniss has obviously done a lot of excellent work here, including helping newcomers, tagging speedies (HEAPS) and copyvios, and has uploaded over 1000 files which is quite amazing. But he has never taken part in policy or community discussion, even when invited, and this is relevant to the article/category debate and the PNG/SVG replacement/deletion debate. And yet, Category:Unknown certainly needs all the help we can give it. I would like to see a commitment to: 1) notifying uploaders when tagging their images and 2) Abiding by community consensus, or lack of it, meaning no emptying of categories to make articles instead and no deletion of PNGs without clear consensus on COM:DEL. pfctdayelise (translate?) 04:42, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

I request bot status for CN because of an request of an wikisource admin. It is dealing around 20.000 images from the ADB, which are in public domain. Expected upload size is around 2000mb.

As you can see on the bot's userpage, the bot serves also for another purpose: for the semi-automatic moving of images to commons.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose no real change since last vote. I'm still very unsure that the main user behind the bot (HardDiskdoes his own vote count?) is not doing "nonsense" any more. However, the information provided for each single image within Category:ADB (the project the bot is mainly working on at the moment) were not matching the minimum information requirements for Commons uploads until my change. The bot edits by someone who apparently doesn't know, that specific information on source and age clearly have to be stated directly on the image page, instead of only being reachable with several more clicks (as it was before), shouldn't be hidden on Recentchanges – they definitely need (more) control by other users. --:Bdk: 07:07, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

lol. very amazing joke. your comments were once better.HardDisk 20:17, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Every one is uploading images, that is the idea in commons. We are supposed to see the uploading. I use an application to upload images to commons, some times a 100 a time, that is a bot. It does not mean I must have bot status. Bot status is for some thing no one cares to see, at least that is what I belive --Tarawneh 00:46, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - feeding 20.000 text scans into commons sounds not like a good idea to me. Commons was made as a deposit for media and picture files, not for mirroring already existing online-encyclopedias. --Anathema 08:34, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - The bot was used in a way I can't trust it will be used thoughtfully in future. Arnomane 09:09, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

    With Uploadin more than 1000 gif files with poor image description and so forth was simply the wrong way. 5 Images would have been enough for a first demo and feedback and then if people have made some suggests as well you would have been able uploading the rest.

I'm active on czech Wikipedia since May 15, 2005, admin there since November 21, 2005. I do lot of maintainance related to pictures, replacing images with Commons, handling redundant etc. On Commons I am active since January 22, 2006. I decided to ask for the rights when I found out, that the image I marked for deletion six weeks ago is still here. I will willingly take care of this part of maintainance. I am familiar with Commons:Deletion guidelines. Zirland 06:07, 18 May 2006 (UTC)
