Changing username[edit]

See here. They're a bit swamped ATM so it may take a little while. HTH, Lewis Collard! (hai thar, wut u doin) 22:34, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, seems like everyone wants to do the same thing as you, hence the swamping. :) Lewis Collard! (hai thar, wut u doin) 22:57, 30 May 2008 (UTC)


Renaming is done by moving from old name to new name.

For pages it is easy: you see the "move" tab on top next to "history". This will move/rename immediately.

For images and otehr media, it is a bit more difficult because it will not be moved immediately. You have to "edit" and add {{rename media|xyz}} on top, and "xyz" is the new name.

Renaming categories is most difficult. See Commons:Rename a category.

Renaming user, see Collard's answer. Dysmorodrepanis 22:35, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Is this what you seek? Dysmorodrepanis 22:56, 30 May 2008 (UTC)


Yes my *is* *Lothar*. Any problem here ?Lothar25 00:18, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Sorry if it wasn't clear. To prevent identity theft, we need you to give a link pointing to your Commons account from your PlWP account. So a diff saying "I'm Lothar25 on Commons" made while logged in as Sir Lothar on PlWP is needed. Thanks, giggy (:O) 00:19, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Re: Image:Eternal lands1.jpg[edit]

So read first if your arguments are unclear, please

You tired me. I have no argument. I write to you a comment to request you to send a mail to OTRS. No more. Without OTRS agreement we need to delete images because a text into a wiki is not an argument. ~ bayo or talk 22:27, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Gta san andreas logo.png[edit]

Hi Sir Lothar. I noticed that you added {{copyvio}} to Gta san andreas logo.png. This logo as well as Yamaha logo.svg are too simple to be protected by copyright even it is a trademark. These logos are nothing more than dull letters which moreover are not arranged in a creative way.
cheers --D-Kuru (talk) 14:41, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Passing by just to say Commons accept any logos who are simple enough consisting of simple letter or typeface or simple shapes. See Threshold of originality and [[Image_casebook Trademarks. That's why we have the Category:Logos, {{PD-text}}, {{PD-textlogo}}, {{PD-shape}} licenses and the {{trademark}} warning. A similar image was restored because of it. So I'm gonna revert your edition. Best regards Mizunoryu 大熊猫❤小熊猫 (talk) 14:59, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Passing by just to say I requested the undeletion of this image. Mizunoryu (talk) 01:41, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Nobody has to agree with anybody. But that's not the point. The point is we mustn't be paranoic about copyright and be aware of the copyright exceptions. As you can see now, the file was misjudged for lack of comprehension and was undeleted.

Sorry! But your act led me to think this way. Sorry for assuming bad faith. best regards! Mizunoryu (talk) 13:46, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

File:Rockstar North logo.png[edit]

You cannot judge one image by other totally different. The Rockstar logo was already deleted once by copyvio and undeleted by consensus for being inelegible. Mizunoryu (talk) 01:09, 30 June 2010 (UTC)


Hi! Please, explain me this edit. I didn't know that it is wrong?


Thanks! :) --WhiteWriter speaks 10:00, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

But i dont understand. What about other photos of the games on wiki? Is it possible to have in-game photo, and to be legal? What about this then?
Category:Video game screenshots
Then most of those should be deleted? --WhiteWriter speaks 15:18, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
OK, i will write to mindark then. They may send me some material that is license free. :) --WhiteWriter speaks 16:07, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
