I like keeping discussions in one place, therefore I usually post my contributions on the page where a discussion started. I will answer on this discussion page if a question is asked here. Likewise, I am grateful if you reply to my contributions on other discussion pages there, not here. If there's something urgent, you might get a quicker reply if you use my discussion page at the German Wikipedia, I'm visiting Commons less frequently. Thanks, Gestumblindi.

Nomination for adminship[edit]

How would you feel if I nominated you for adminship? I've noticed there seems to be a growing backlog of copyvio nominations, and you seem pretty familiar with copyright law. I know I myself probably wouldn't like the added pressure (or maybe that's sour grapes; there's no way I'd pass anyways), so don't feel compelled to accept. I've decided to start stalking the deletion pages and ask questions, so if you don't want to, I'll undoubtedly find someone more people to ask. --Quintucket (talk) 01:41, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the confidence. But... Well, I'm an admin over in the German-language Wikipedia since February 2009; admin permissions would come in handy here, too. I would also be willing to lend a hand in dealing with the backlog; however, I'm not sure that people would see me as active enough here on Commons. In a recent unsuccessful admin nomination (Letartean) I read the comment "Letartean has 9,600 global edits, with only 1,445 on Commons, and 200 of those in the Commons: namespace. That's right on the edge for me -- we usually like to see 2,500+ Commons edits and a few more in the namespace." If this was "right on the edge", then it seems that I wouldn't pass, as I have not much more edits here than Letartean. So I suspect that nominating me currently wouldn't be a good idea. Gestumblindi (talk) 03:01, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
I looked over the RFAs (I was originally going to ask Takebeg, who has similar credentials to you, but on an unrelated RFA someone complained about his behavior, which made me think he might have problems passing unrelated to his credentials), and there are several administrators who are promoted with fewer edits than you have. I'll dig up the threads if you like.
Edits in the Commons namespace is meant to show one understands deletion policy, which it seems that you do. In Letartean's case the same user who complained about his edits also noted that his commons edits were on quality image candidates rather than deletion requests and copyvio issues, which aren't the case for you. QIC of course does not require admin tools, DRs do.
If you're willing to accept the nomination, I'd still like to nominate you. Given that we really do need admins and you have a respectable track record, I think the community would accept you. An if they don't it would be more a commentary on my judgment than your qualifications. --Quintucket (talk) 14:36, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
Well, if you think it's worth a try, be me guest and go ahead :-) - I'm not very eager, but I could and would use the privs, I think. Should the community not want me as an admin here, no problem. Gestumblindi (talk) 21:26, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
I have nominated you. You still have a chance to back out, you have you state your acceptance on the nom for the request to take effect. ;•) --Quintucket (talk) 23:24, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Ein Willkommenspräsent für unseren neuen Administrator von deinen Kollegen...

Herzlichen Glückwunsch, Gestumblindi! Du hast jetzt die Rechte eines Administrators auf Commons. Nimm dir bitte einen Moment Zeit, um dir die Seite Commons:Administratoren und die in Verbindung mit der Beobachtungsliste stehenden Seiten durchzulesen (insbesondere Commons:Administrators' noticeboard und Commons:Deletion requests), bevor du damit beginnst, Seitenlöschungen, Accountsperrungen oder Änderungen am Seitenschutzstatus bzw. an den geschützten Seiten selbst durchzuführen. Der Großteil der Bearbeitungen eines Administrators kann durch andere Administratoren wieder rückgängig gemacht werden, mit Ausnahme der Zusammenführung von Versionsgeschichten, die deshalb mit spezieller Obacht behandelt werden muß.

Wir laden dich herzlich ein, mit uns auf IRC Kontakt aufzunehmen: #wikimedia-commons @ irc.freenode.net. Es gibt auch einen Channel für Commons-Admins, der für sensiblere Themen sowie zur Koordination unter Admins genutzt werden kann. Du findest zudem in dem Commons:Ratgeber zur Administratorentätigkeit vielleicht eine nützliche Lektüre.

Bitte überprüfe, ob du in der Commons:List of administrators und den jeweils nach Datum oder Sprache sortierten Listen eingetragen wurdest und ergänze deine Daten andernfalls.

Hilfe[edit]

Hallo Gestumblindi, beim Upload hat sich die Sofware hier verschluckt. Kannst Du das fixen?--Karsten11 (talk) 13:35, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Mir ist keine einfache Lösung für das Problem bekannt, Lupo hat den gerade mehrfach aufgetretenen Bug hier gemeldet. In diesem Fall wurde das Problem offenbar gelöst, indem der User die betroffenen Files nochmal unter anderen Dateinamen hochgeladen hatte, anschliessend hat ein Admin diese auf die Originalnamen verschoben. Können wir's so probieren? Du lädtst das Bild nochmal hoch - dann lösche ich die fehlerhafte Datei entweder einfach (falls der neue Name auch so ok ist) oder verschiebe/lösche. Gestumblindi (talk) 18:04, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
Hatte ich schon versucht. Aber die Software erkennt, dass das Bild bereits hochgeladen ist und verhindert das erneute hochladen. Wenn die kaputte Version gelöscht wäre, ginge es vieleicht.--Karsten11 (talk) 18:21, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
Du kannst es nicht manuell unter einem anderen Namen hochladen? Das müsste eigentlich gehen, bei anderen Benutzern scheint das ja auch geklappt zu haben. Aber ich lösche das defekte nun jedenfalls mal, dann können wir weitersehen :-) Gestumblindi (talk) 20:46, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
Herzlichen Dank. Jetzt hat es geklappt.--Karsten11 (talk) 08:13, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Solothurn Library[edit]

Glad to help. I can't read German though, I run it through Google Translate, and do it that way. Please correct any that don't make sense. Some are in French; I can read them and put into English.

Media is here to be used, not just looked at, so I'm glad to help incorporating it into Wikipedia! Oaktree b (talk) 17:54, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

User rights management[edit]

Hey, I noticed you added User:Kelson to the GWToolset user group together with giving them additional filemover rights. We have COM:RFR for the filemover group, so I wonder why you gave Kelson those user rights without following the regular procedures? Thanks, odder (talk) 22:23, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi odder; I just wrote to Steinsplitter in this matter, see also his talk page. Kelson is heavily involved in GLAM projects and it was with his help and experience that we got e.g. the images of Commons:Zentralbibliothek Solothurn uploaded. Although he did request access to the GWToolset by e-mail, giving him also filemover rights was a spontaneous idea of mine, as I think it will be helpful for his projects - and as he's an experienced user with thousands of edits, I did not think there would be any problem with that. I suppose, given his record, he would certainly receive these rights if requesting them through COM:RFR, but I'm not really experienced in user rights management - is there a strict requirement to use this RFR process?

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee
