A barnstar for you![edit]

For your contributions to Wiki Loves Monuments 2012, including uploading images, renames of images uploaded by others, and adding NRHP#s, etc. INeverCry 04:17, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. Is it bad to feel chuffed for foisting half my work onto others? Thundersnow (talk) 12:38, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
That depends. The foisted work consists of clicking a move button, then a proceed button, and repeat. In any event, you can give it a try yourself if you'd like: I've made you autopatrolled and a filemover. If you're up to it, all you need to do is choose "move and replace" in the dropdown list up top corner, input the new name and a reason, and go at it. I don't mind moving these files for anyone who needs me to, so it's fine if you want to leave them to me. INeverCry 04:25, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Thank you very much for the tool. I looked into getting filemover but thought I needed more edits. I am glad I will be able to save you and others from all the extra "work." I will probably bollocks it up at least once as only a newbie can. Sadly, I learn best from making mistakes and then fixing them. Thundersnow (talk) 08:00, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Making mistakes is such a common thing, but learning from them... not so much; so you're already ahead of the curve. ;) Happily, mistakes here are easily fixed for the most part. If you need help with anything, feel free to ask me or any other administrator. INeverCry 17:58, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
I came here to thank you too, Thundersnow! You are doing an excellent job with fixing categories while adding NRHP#. My watchlist has been glowing lately from your edits. I see that I was doing some categorization errors when I was newer and you're fixing them as you go. The file mover right will come in handy for you. Royalbroil 13:12, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the encouragement, and you are welcome on the fixes. Some of my earlier cat efforts make me shudder. I hope you do not feel the same about your own. Thundersnow (talk) 04:41, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Re: User talk:Fungus Guy#Over-categorization[edit]

Thanks for the tip! I noticed that, when I went to fix any overcategorization I may have caused, they were already fixed! By you, so thanks again! Fungus Guy (talk) 18:57, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hello Thundersnow,

I'd like to thank you a lot for your help on Wiki Loves Monuments, that is a great help for Canada, especially since I'm the only organiser. You are doing a major job and I'm very greatful for this.

May I ask you, just for a small period, to not rename these files until the jury process is finished. Our jury is judging on evaluation grids and I'm using permalinks on these. If the files are renamed, this is giving broken links in the grids.

Again thanks a lot for your help here! Best regards, Benoit Rochon (talk) 01:45, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

Image deletion questions[edit]

Yes, the DYK tag does complicate matters. The larger image was uploaded per a request at QIC. I suppose it could carry the DYK tag instead, but I think we may want to keep accurate records of what image was used where and so for that reason we should probably keep both versions.

As for the other picture, the template you want is {{extracted image}} for the cropped one and {{extracted from}} for the original. I will take care of it. Daniel Case (talk) 17:19, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Done and done. Daniel Case (talk) 17:23, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the notice; deletion requests are not something I follow. I wish they could be reverse-processed, as they would be very useful then. Thundersnow (talk) 09:54, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
