Commons:Deletion requests/File:UA-stripe.GIF[edit]

Please restore the SVG, you accidentally deleted it as well. Fry1989 eh? 15:59, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Frey1989, thank you for pointing this out. I indeed deleted accidently the superior file, not the inferior deletion candidate. In the meantime I've restored all references to this file in the other WMF projects. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 16:09, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

crat candidature[edit]

Dear AFBorchert. Your name has been mentioned at the Bureaucrats' noticeboard, and I'd be happy to nominate as bureaucrat. Please let me know if you are ok with that. Thank you. --Krd 11:08, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Krd, please pardon me for responding that late. I was busy for two days and had no opportunity to drop in at Commons. I am not sure if I am the ideal candidate for a 'crat. I understand concerns in regard to my level of activity. I cannot promise any significant increase but I intend to stay around as in all the previous years. I would accept a nomination but I would be grateful if I could add some words before it actually starts. Thanks & greetings, AFBorchert (talk) 06:18, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
I think you are a good candidate even though activity count is a bit low. Cratship is a challenging job and willing to interfere in difficult cases (as you did in many times) is more important than very active but stay away when situation demands. Please consider again, seriously. :) Jee 10:55, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Deleted today[edit]

Please could you delete the uncropped versions of the file in Commons:Deletion requests/File:ErosPyramide20090221 021.jpg. FredWalsh (talk) 00:27, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, FredWalsh, for pointing this out. I've have deleted now the older, uncropped versions of that file. --AFBorchert (talk) 07:23, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Valentin (Rusantsov)2.jpg[edit]

Probably I did not format the request very well, but I nominated three photos for deletion. You deleted only one. Taivo (talk) 10:19, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Taivo, thank you for pointing this out. I've deleted the others as well. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 11:30, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Template for redirection to a better version of the same photo?[edit]

Thanks for executing the Commons:Deletion requests/File:Tula State Museum of Weapons (79-58) (cropped) RPG-18.jpg.

It happens from time to time that I come across two versions of the same photo, where one is not just a cropped version of the other. Instead it happens that one of the two is clearly better than the other, e.g. one has a low resolution or a more aggressive compression, or uses perhaps an old format like GIF.

Is there a template one can drop in such lower-quality images, that informs the user that a better version of the same image exists, so they can make a decision about which one to use (or even delete, if the difference in usefulness is big enough)?

Thanks, Lklundin (talk) 18:50, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Lklundin, the {{Information}} template offers a field named other_versions that allows to inform about alternative versions which are possibly to be prefered. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 06:50, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
Very good, thank you. Unless you would like to suggest something else, I will go ahead and use that apporach like this. Thanks again. Lklundin (talk) 13:18, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
That's fine, Lklundin. Sometimes, a small thumbnail is given, like [[File:202nd Air Defence Brigade - MT-LB - 002.jpg|150px]]. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 13:41, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
