Move request for image with wrong title[edit]

Hi, I noticed your comment on my talk page regarding the move request for my image. Yes, there are many files with longer names and I'm probably nitpicking/perfectionistic here, but I made a mistake when I gave the file its title. The other file I've uploaded does have a correct title, so I would like the names to be consistent. So could you please rename the file, even if it isn't really necessary? Thank you in advance. --AlexanderVanLoon (talk) 18:47, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Renaming of a file[edit]

Excuse my english, I'm a french user ;-)

Hello, I don't understand why renaming is not possible for this file, Shopwalker.jpg is just a redirect. Where is the problem? Thanks Reptilien.19831209BE1 (talk) 12:28, 16 July 2013 (UTC)


Bonjour, ça va? Excusez moi pour la situation.

Since a needlessly pointing redirect exists and prevents filemovers from renaming a file requested by sincere users like your good self, I suggest you to kindly request an admin to help you in this situation. merci, Hindustanilanguage (talk) 15:08, 16 July 2013 (UTC).


File:Ленинградсеое такси .JPG‎[edit]

Hi!

There is at least three reasons for renaming of this file:
1) Right russian name is "Ленинградское такси"
2) Leningrad is St.Petersburg now.
3) There is no model number and abbrevaition.

You were rather trolling Herby here, which isn't helpful, particularly when Herby wasn't actually the one who deleted Dmitri's user page. Try to keep a slightly cooler head in future, otherwise, the discussion about what to do to prevent this happening can easily go off-topic. =) Adam Cuerden (talk) 22:25, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

An IP pointed Herby's promotion the site on the userpage where photos by him/her are sold and the discussion centres on whether this user who targeted Dmitri should remove the link or not. Unjustifiably, Herby makes a personal attack on me "...You've an axe to grind..." So you grossly misjudged the situation, but I'm used to all this. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 08:20, 2 February 2013 (UTC).

It really did seem you were somewhat disruptively making a point - instead of saying "It is hypocritical of you to...", you instead were arguing for his link to be removed, with the implication - at least somewhat justified - that this was more-or-less equivalent to his argument, turned against him. But that sort of thing gets disruptive fast, and you took it a bit far. Adam Cuerden (talk) 10:46, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

I was never as much aggressive as the other user. I, in fact changed my mind during the course of discussion and would've removed my words in the morning even if you hadn't - see my last remark. But the other person is unrepentant about his disparaging comments. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 12:37, 2 February 2013 (UTC).

Renaming Windows 1.0 logo does not seem to be a solution[edit]

Hi,

I don't think that renaming a winows 1.0 logo is a good idea. Wikipedia editors are not aware of that and display this logo on Windows 1.x/2.x page descriptions. About 10 hours ago I have removed the logo from all the pages linking to it on all available languages (including Portuguese, Georgian, Italian, Romanian, Polish etc.) and when I check the file links now I see that some of the links have been restored. Please add you vote for deleting the image as misleading/inappropriate, this would be much more effective in stopping this fake campaign... -- w:User_Talk:Aaleksanyants

Suggested name was "File:Fantasy Microsoft Windows logo.svg". I felt a more descriptive name such as "Proposed but Unused Logo of Microsoft Windows 1.0.svg" will aptly describe the status of the file. Btw there's no voting the link you've cited. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 18:14, 15 February 2013 (UTC).

It was not a windows 1.0 logo. There does not seem to be any Windows 1.0 logo that anyone can find. It is something som eone stuck into a blog in 2012. It is a fantasy logo. There is no evidence it was a proposed logo that I know of. Dmcq (talk) 21:20, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Closing COM:AN/U[edit]

Hello Hindustanilanguage, I completely disagree with your closing and comment in my report. I mean also you are not authorized to do this as non admin!? The most of Fry1989 given arguments are hypocrisy or simply not true (which I can refute in detail). And also my report had nothing to do with Maxxl2. -- ΠЄΡΉΛΙΟ 04:30, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Sometimes non-admins close discussions in the exact same way as admins do, usually when no admin action is needed, or it has already taken place. The discussion can be re-opened in cases where it's not really finished according to a few people. Penyulap 04:56, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Orpheum Wurlitzer opus 1746 style 240 (1927-) console.jpg[edit]

Thank you for renaming this file. And I'm sorry for my trivial request.

The naming of series of images is always headache thing for me. At first, I'd planned to name files along with following rule:

  • "<famous theater> Wurlitzer opus <NNNN> style <NNN> (<timeframe>), <component> <N> <...>.jpg"
  • "Wurlitzer opus <NNNN> style <NNN> (<timeframe>), <component> <N>, <theater>, <location> <...>.jpg"
where <N> means extension number, etc.

However, possibly the expression "<component> <N>" looks like the multiple existence of same components (in historically, for example). So I've changed my previous rule as following:

  • "<famous theater> Wurlitzer opus <NNNN> style <NNN> (<timeframe>) <component> <additional description> <...>.jpg"
  • "Wurlitzer opus <NNNN> style <NNN> (<timeframe>) <component> <additional description>, <theater>, <location> <...>.jpg"

and requested renaming of this file. (again, I've already think it is too trivial to request).

Anyway, thank you for renaming! --Clusternote (talk) 05:55, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Although I'll take some time to understand your logic, thanks anyway for the reply.

Hi![edit]

Hi! I helped a lady draft and and send an E-mail to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org with three photos of the Uzbek actress Sitora Farmonova attached. She also send the E-mail to me. Will ORTS members upload the photos themselves? If yes, how will I find out when they do? Or can I go ahead and upload them? I'n not sure if ORTS volunteers will locate the photos if I upload them myself. Because the photos in the E-mail are not named properly, they're right from the camera. Thanks! Nataev (talk)

Hello,

Due to the large number of ambiguous answers to enquiries concerning a permission of reuse for an image, text or similar (such as "I allow Wikipedia to reuse my photos") it is advisable to use a standard declaration of consent in the e-mail, point to it in the email, which can be returned by the author/copyright owner in the email reply. The precedent below should be amended, as necessary, with the required additional information. Note that "WORK" and "LICENSE" should not appear in the emailed reply as they should be replaced by details of the image and license. If the link to the file is not available online, you may upload the file on Commons with the {{OTRS pending}} template and have the author link to it in the declaration of consent.

Note that you must change this text in 3 places: A URL to your work (image/sound/video), a license and date and name. Additionally, please include the URL of the image as located on Wikimedia Commons for which you are providing permission in the email.

Email address

E-Mail the permission e-mails to our email response team ("OTRS") at permissions-commons@wikimedia.org.

The email you send must come from an email address that we can recognize.

Before sending the email

  • Before you send the e-mail, ensure that you've removed all the comments from the above template.
  • Replace the template text (such as name) with your own details.
  • You must clearly identify the content that you're permitting us to use. Something like "I am creator of the images used on XYZ page" is NOT sufficient. You must provide exact URL link(s) to the content or attach the content with the e-mail. For images, we prefer that you upload them to Wikimedia Commons with the {{OTRS pending}} template, and provide the URLs of the uploaded images in your e-mail.

Why do ORTS volunteers take forever to process E-mails? It's so damn bureaucratic. Nataev (talk) 14:52, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
I think it's because there aren't enough of them, or there isn't enough interest sometimes. It can take ages, though sometimes it's fast. There is a template that was made by people who were bored of waiting (well maybe it was) and it's called {{OTRS pending}} and you can put that onto the file to let people know that the file is ok. Penyulap 16:52, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Memorial Route of Jewish Martyrdom and Struggle in Warsaw[edit]

Hello, why have you reverted those? Boston9 (talk) 10:52, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

As I checked the history of the file, I've seen that you've changed all the description and then asked for renaming. While I don't accuse you of anything, but my experience is that some users have tried to compel filemovers to renaming in a nasty manner through such moves. Good day. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 10:56, 15 April 2013 (UTC).

This is not my case. You can find the exact locations of those memorial blocks listed in the table in the new article on Polish Wikipedia at here. If you check the name Frumka Płotnicka is says "Ulica Dubois róg Niskiej" (Dubois Street corner of Niska Street), which is 100% correct and verifiable, for example on the official website of the City of Warsaw here or on the orthophotomap of Warsaw here. "Zamenhofa" in the name of the file is wrong and "Dubois" is correct. Zamenhofa Street ends at the intersection with Miła Street. I just wanted to correct this and I have started what is easier for me i.e. the photo description. Boston9 (talk) 11:22, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Pocahontas.jpg overwrite[edit]

Hi there, I notice that an upload you made this week overwrote File:Pocahontas.jpg with a different image. I've since renamed the file you overwrote as "File:Pocahontas 1883.jpg" so you can now upload the file with the generic "Pocahontas.jpg" if you like, but a more descriptive filename, such as including the author or date of the work, would be even better. Thanks!-- Patrick, oѺ 22:16, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

This is again a flaw of Up! - I don't like overwrite but the tool simply does it. I've recently started going for offtrack naming to overcome this prob - but cannot guarantee here as well - there can be other user's on Commons who as much offtrackish as myself.

I thought you'll review your statement in the above section first, but you've not done so far. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 08:00, 21 April 2013 (UTC).
Túrelio fixed your mistake. Such mistakes are typically made by users who are unexperienced in copyright matters. To make it clear, I made one correction as an example. --Leyo 14:26, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

What about your misjudged admin mistake in supporting the renaming of a file by a user with no verification, no minimum courtesy of asking what explanation does a filemover has to offer?

I've, in particular, quoted your rough behaviour in the RfC - compare a humble way an ordinary user makes an admin realize his mistake and the sarcastic way in which the admin approaches - experienced admin, ah! Hindustanilanguage (talk) 15:44, 21 April 2013 (UTC).

I don't really understand what you are talking about. I was not sarcastic in this thread.
Please get rid of the mistakes in your uploads. --Leyo 19:40, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
I think it would be possible to comply if you were more specific. I know it is impossible to be less specific than asking any user to fix all mistakes in their uploads. Penyulap 01:09, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Leyo, you're right, you were never sarcastic in this thread. Actually, it was this thread and of course, a surprising thing was your support to a user's rename request which belied existing reasons of renaming a file as seen here. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 09:28, 22 April 2013 (UTC).

Please do not mix up different things. If you have questions or comments, ask/make them there.
Do I need to answer Penyulap's request or do you know which file description pages need to be corrected yourself? --Leyo 09:41, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
Actually, you've messed up things. This section is "Pocahontas.jpg overwrite" and was meant to discuss the overwrite only. If you include other things in it, you've go to answer those things pertaining to your edits as well, which I included in it just as you included unrelated stuff in it. . I'll be happy if you could clarify on your very own sarcastic remark. Please compare this stray remark with the humble way in which we ordinary users make admins realize their mistakes.

Hi Hindustanilanguage[edit]

I've long considered editor-requested blocks to be an essential part of a safe working environment for some volunteers. I've never asked for one, but consider them a logical outcome of certain circumstances. I think I might have seen someone report themselves on an AN recently, I know I have before, long ago on en.wiki. It's a simple matter of logic and integrity combining, the rules are, at least in the minds of a tiny few people, meant to be the same for everyone without exception. So some circumstances would potentially present themselves in which that person knows that they would ask for someone else to be blocked, and so they should ask for them-self to be blocked because they shouldn't be any different to anyone else. I think the idea is viewed as insanity by people who are unable to entertain the idea that they could possibly be wrong under any circumstance, and there are quite a few people like that around.

I think it would be a good idea to raise the issue on commons. Have it discussed. Penyulap 19:21, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi Penyulap, a discussion related to the points raised by you is in progress @ the talk page of Rd232. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 19:27, 20 April 2013 (UTC).

I understand his thinking there, it does have a logic to it. I think it should be discussed in commons space, for example on commons talk:blocking or whatever passes for that, or possibly the village swamp ...eek :) Penyulap 19:37, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

If you read the section "Two diverse issues", you'll see that I've assured him NOT TO RAISE THE ISSUE ON ANY OF OUR FORUMS in line with his words "Before doing that you can of course ask me (here or by email) any questions that might help clarify the issue." I therefore cannot proceed much at this point as I would not like to break my promise. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 19:50, 20 April 2013 (UTC).

I understand perfectly. Penyulap 01:18, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Help needed (again) :)[edit]

Hi! It's me again with yet another request: This image looks like it could be India related. Could you have a look which category can be used? As always, thanks for your time! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 03:26, 7 June 2013 (UTC)


This appears to be pertaining to Shiva temples of Cholanadu in Tamil Nadu, India. Cf: 1 and 2. Probably Category:Shiva temples in Tamil Nadu is most suited here. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 05:12, 7 June 2013 (UTC).

You are faster than lightning! Thanks a bunch for your help! :-) --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 05:38, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Renaming of a file[edit]

Excuse my english, I'm a french user ;-)

Hello, I don't understand why renaming is not possible for this file, Shopwalker.jpg is just a redirect. Where is the problem? Thanks Reptilien.19831209BE1 (talk) 12:28, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Bonjour, ça va? Excusez moi pour la situation.

Since a needlessly pointing redirect exists and prevents filemovers from renaming a file requested by sincere users like your good self, I suggest you to kindly request an admin to help you in this situation. merci, Hindustanilanguage (talk) 15:08, 16 July 2013 (UTC).

Flag of South Korea.svg[edit]

I reverted your rename of the file; with such a huge file and other issues I brought up on the talk page, we have to discuss this first before doing anything major on a global scale. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 03:23, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for highlighting the concurrent discussions. However, on our very Commons we've got a file indicative of the suggested name. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 08:24, 18 July 2013 (UTC).

Different formats, that doesn't qualify for an automatic rename. The one you picked was F2, which says "Change from completely meaningless names into suitable names, according to what the image displays". South Korea is not a useless name, and this is mostly going from auto-generated names from digital camera/cell phone photos to something we know to what it is. I am fixing the uses across all projects, but please be careful next time. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 17:04, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Declined rename of File:Krama.jpg[edit]

Hey there, I noticed that you had previously declined a file rename that I just made at File:Krama.jpg. You were correct that it was being used, but it was also being used incorrectly, a google image search of "Belarus Palac band" shows that the original rename request was correct. Just a heads up. Liamdavies (talk) 07:40, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up but I am glad you've realised the solid basis for endorsing old name on the basis of the usage on Wikipedia. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 08:29, 18 July 2013 (UTC).

Completely understand, that's why I didn't rename it when it came up, leaving it for a more experienced filemover. But when it came up again I thought I'd investigate a bit more. (Also, I meant the heads up as info, and in no way a warning - I hope you didn't see it as an admonishment) Liamdavies (talk) 15:45, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
Not at all, in fact, I am always ready for a friendly cooperation on our project. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 16:15, 19 July 2013 (UTC).

File:Безымянный.PNG[edit]

"Безымянный" translated as "no name" --RLuts (talk) 09:36, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

I don't know, but I am constantly being redirected to File:Name.jpg, though what's being discussed is a PNG file and what I find is a JPEG file. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 14:56, 18 July 2013 (UTC).

Penguins in Nebraska zoo.JPG[edit]

My request for a file move was not merely because of capitalization like you said. It was because a lower case .jpg is the standard format on Commons. SL93 (talk) 22:17, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

I didn't mean to capitalize it, I was the uploader, and I own the copyright for it. So why can't my mistake be fixed? SL93 (talk) 22:27, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

✓ Done by Billinghurst before I could do it. Anyway, thanks++ for contributing on Commons. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 09:17, 27 July 2013 (UTC).

File:Porpoise head bisected.jpg[edit]

Hi, I need an administrator's intervention here, and I picked you at random.

I uploaded a week ago a photograph of the bisected head of a bottlenose dolphin: File:Porpoise head bisected.jpg. I accidentally called it "Porpoise head bisected.jpg" when it ought to read "Dolphin". This image was taken from a very old NASA publication, and I'm guessing that in those days it was acceptable to call dolphins "porpoises". Whatever the case, these days Tursiops truncatus is not of the porpoise family.Kurzon (talk) 17:56, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Do you want me to rename it "File:Dolphin head bisected.jpg" ? Hindustanilanguage (talk) 17:59, 27 July 2013 (UTC).

Yes.Kurzon (talk) 08:36, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Confusing usernames[edit]

Please thoroughly re-check your accusations against Pierre, as you likely mixed up 2 users[2]. --Túrelio (talk) 19:05, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the friendly reminder. I've corrected my stance. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 03:56, 31 July 2013 (UTC).
I'm glad you fixed that up and support PierreSelim. I often misread names too. Penyulap 05:59, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
I very well remember receiving a stinker for an edit by Hindutashravi. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 11:38, 31 July 2013 (UTC).
