Hi Saqib, in the above file you have forgotten to insert one of these two things:

  1. reference to the original picture
  2. description of the subject

I've noticed because I need the description to insert into the image caption. --Andyrom75 (talk) 21:42, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Andy, this is my own work but unfortunately I haven't uploaded the source image. I've added description anyway. --Saqib (talk) 23:18, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Valued image candidates[edit]

Hi Saqib,

aren't you closing the nominations a bit too early? According to guidelines the nominations should be open for at least 4 days. Cheers, --P e z i (talk) 12:22, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Pezi, Sorry. I'm mistaken. I thought its 48 hours. --Saqib (talk) 12:23, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Filemover![edit]

Commons File mover.svg

Hi Saqib, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{speedy}}. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.

Thanks Nahid, I wonder if I can get rollback rights too? --Saqib (talk) 15:46, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi, Generally rights are handed out when they are required and you don't need rollback right for the purpose you mentioned in your RFR. And also I don't see a single "undo" in your latest contributions besides some of your own mistakes. A little more vandal-fighting would be a useful demonstration of your ability to use the rollback tool correctly and effectively here on Commons. But these are only my personal thinking, you can always request the right at COM:RFR. Cheers and again welcome :) ~ Nahid Talk 15:56, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear Reviewer[edit]

If you use the helper-scripts, you will find the links next to the search box (vector) or as single tabs (monobook). They are named license+ and license-

Hi Saqib, thanks for your application to be an image reviewer. The application has been removed as successful, and you've been added to the list of reviewers. You can review all kind of image licenses on Commons. Please see Commons:License review and Commons:Flickr files if you haven't done so already. We also have a guide how to detect copyright violations. Backlogs include Flickr review, Picasa review, Panoramio review, and files from other sources. You can use one of the following scripts by adding one of the lines to your common.js:

importScript('User:ZooFari/licensereviewer.js'); // stable script for reviewing images from any kind of source OR
importScript('User:Rillke/LicenseReview.js'); // contains also user notification when review fails, auto blacklist-check and auto-thank you message for Flickr-reviews.

You can also add {{user reviewer}} or {{user trusted}} to your user page if you wish. Thank you for your contributions on Commons! --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:29, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

STOP Vandalism on my talk page[edit]

Dear Saqib,

You have been vandalizing my talk page since you undo my edit without my permission, you should know that you should not suppose to undo sometimes edits on their talk pages, since its called user and user talk page vandalism and you should learn to respect senior contributors here and you should assume good faith on another user. I hope with the good remarks that you would regret this act and STOP vandalizing others talk page.--Faizanalivarya (talk) 15:56, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Please avoid committing copyright violations here or otherwise you'll be blocked. --Saqib (talk) 17:48, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Congratulation[edit]

I congratulate you for your new promotion. Your work honored us all. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 16:45, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Patroller![edit]

Hi Saqib,

You now have the Patroller right and may call yourself a patroller ! Please take a moment to read the updated Commons:Patrol to learn how Patrolling works and how we use it to fight vandalism.

As you know already, the patrolling functionality is enabled for all edits, not just for new-page creations. This enables us to keep track of, for example, edits made by anonymous users here on Commons.

We could use you help at the Counter Vandalism Unit. For example by patrolling an Anonymous-edits checklist and checking a day-part.

If you have any questions please leave a message on the CVU talkpage or ask for help on IRC in #wikimedia-commons.

Four "Missing Permissions" converted to DNs[edit]

Greetings: I converted several of your "missing permissions" to DN's because I was unable to figure out why you thought the images didn't have permissions.

Please take a moment to comment on each of the above explaining why you felt the images had no permissions despite claims of "own work" by uploaders, no contradictory metadata and no identical images on Google Image Search. Thank you. Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:39, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Saqib In future, please take the time to create a Deletion Nomination instead of for "no permission" based only on suspicion. You need some actual reason to put "no permission" not just assumptions. Ellin Beltz (talk) 15:20, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Sure Ellin Beltz, I've converted many "no permission" files which I tagged recently, into "deletion nominations". --Saqib (talk) 16:19, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, much appreciated. DNs are for the community to figure out suspicious images collectively; "missing permission" and of course "speedy" are for clear-cut, unambiguous situations! Thank you for your understanding! Ellin Beltz (talk) 21:04, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
One more thing about "speedies"... if you say you found the image "on the web" please be so kind as to include the URL, there's no reason for the admins to have to repeat the search to verify your speedy deletion nomination. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:35, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
Ellin Beltz, I usually provide the URL when marking a file for speedy deletion but when I came across a user who upload too many copyright images, I prefer to perform batch task rather than individually mark each image because its very time consuming. Recently, I came across a guy who uploaded some 40 copyvio and it took my 20 minutes so individually mark each and every image one by one. Well I could patrol many more files If I had simply perform a batch task but anyways. --Saqib (talk) 07:46, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
I too mark them one by one, but I always include the URL of the found on web. Don't be in such a hurry to change the world that you forget to provide sufficient information for the deleting admins. I've found some "missing permissions" which may very well not have been, and now some speedies from you with no source to show where they came from provided in the speedy nomination. I think you're going too fast and missing the point. You nominate for deletion, no permission, no license or speedy as an assist to the admins who will actually process the image. Giving "on the web" without saying from where the image was found isn't helpful because then the admin has to repeat your search and may or may not find what you found in the first place. This isn't a video game where "most edit counts" equals the winner - but a collaborative project where we assume good faith COM:AGF of all uploaders unless proven otherwise. It's the proof part that you need to provide in your nominations. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:48, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Ellin Beltz, Oh let me clarify you I'm not doing all this to increase my edit counts. I'm volunteering for WLM Pakistan and that's why reviewing all the photos submitted from Pakistan and once the competition over (September 30th) you won't see me active here anymore so yes I assuming good faith. Also, I don't mark an image for speedy unless the user has previously uploaded copyright photos or unless the photo is on web but Google Images search is not reliable source to do investigation and if sometime it fails to detect even photos that are copied from web. Anyways, I'll try to go slow down now if you think I'm too fast. --Saqib (talk) 19:12, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Please only mark the ones of which you are sure, and please always provide the url of the alleged copyright violation for speedies. "On the web" is insufficient for a speedy deletion as you are just making another editor/admin follow your work around and clean up after. Go as fast or as slow as you want, but don't go so fast that your quality suffers. Ellin Beltz (talk) 19:02, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Saqib[edit]

you should nominate the WLM-pictures from Pakistan not in QI (you know, this is sometimes battle area for betterknower), but for valued pictures. Unfortunately, in my opinion, they are all not passing the quality standard. --Hubertl (talk) 08:22, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Hello Hubertl, I'm really surprised why all are declining. All top-10 photos were selected by some talented photographers some of whom are administrators on Commons. --Saqib (talk) 08:25, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
The motives are perfect, but not the quality! WLM-decisions refer much more to motives than to quality. The one, which was promoted, have both. --Hubertl (talk) 12:07, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

File:Sheikh Zayed Mosque view2.JPG[edit]

Commons-emblem-issue.svg File:Sheikh Zayed Mosque view2.JPG has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

QI candidates[edit]

Hello! IMO it's the best way to use the discussion within the QI list or the QI discussion. The decision of the WLM jury is different from QI (or Featured Pictures). WLM looks for good pictures of monuments, QI respectects the QI guidelines. Some of my images reached the Top 100 of the WLM (in Germany), but they are not QI. Your images have a good composition. May be they can be prepared well for QI. Do you use RAW images? With the RAW image a lot of problems can be fixed or improved. You can try to fix the problems and change from "decline" to "discuss". Or you can renominate your fixed image. Please have a look to all the other reviews. The most of the images are declined. The problems are initially getting a little bigger, but I wish you many good photos! --XRay talk 06:13, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
