Thanks[edit]

Thanks for your help with the The New Orleans Bee categories. --Slick (talk) 15:28, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

I found a solution to create the categories we need with the bot. So I guess in this part your help is'nt necessary futhermore. But if you like to help futhermore, please crawl in the uploadet files from The New Orleans Bee and categorize the 'missing pages' to this category. Thank you. --Slick (talk) 09:43, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
Ok. I surely want to help you with the missing pages. --Wiki13 09:46, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
✓ Done; checked all existing categories with files and only found some missing pages. The most were already categorized in Category:The New Orleans Bee - missing pages. --Wiki13 10:25, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, but its done only for the moment ;). Less than 10% are uploadet yet. Will be ~135000 when finished. (see status bar @ Commons:Batch_uploading/New_Orleans_Bee) --Slick (talk) 13:49, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
No problem. I will take a look at that page from time to time to see how far the batch upload is. As soon as it reaches 100 percent I will help again to find the missing pages. --Wiki13 13:52, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
The job is finished now. --Slick (talk) 15:25, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for the message here. I will start with categorizing the missing pages. --Wiki13 15:28, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
By the way, I'm checking years of which have been checked on missing pages. If you want to help the page is User:Wiki13/The New Orleans Bee. --Wiki13 15:56, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you.

Welcome, Dear Filemover![edit]

Commons File mover.svg

Hi Wiki13, 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.

2012 Electoral college map[edit]

Thank you for moving File:Electoral College 2012.svg to the requested file name. However, the reason I listed it to be moved was because it was holding up the name File:ElectoralCollege2012.svg, which is the traditional format for Electoral College maps, for every U.S. presidential election map in history. Could you please delete the redirect you created on File:ElectoralCollege2012.svg, so that a blank map can be uploaded for the presidential election next week? Thank you. Gage (talk) 20:22, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Rybice[edit]

Please rename this file [1] in "Rybice". This is a official name of this small village in north Poland. See please [2], [3], [4]. "Riebitz" is a german music festival in Germany see for "Riebitz Festival" here [5] 80.171.17.255 04:25, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Ah, now I see why I should've renamed the file. I couldn't really see the difference between those two names. But sure, I'll rename the file. --Wiki13 22:22, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
You should not haved moved this fle: de:Riebitz ist the german name of the village so its not a completely meaningless name as you stated. ...Sicherlich talk 01:16, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
That's kinda an automatic reason when renaming a file. I agree with Sicherlich that the reason should've been changed before doing that. But there isn't any problem now? Both Wikipedias use the same name now as far I can see. Argueing about a misschosen rename reason wouldn't help the Wikipedia's at all. If you have any further questions: please feel free to add them below. Regards, Wiki13 09:16, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
What reason would be apropiate? I dont think there wasn't any to rename that file; Commons:File renaming#Which files should not be renamed?; "As a matter of principle it's best to leave all files with generally valid names at their locations, even if slightly better names may exist." and specialy: "only because the new name looks a bit better." and as well, correspondingly, "Files should NOT be renamed only because the filename is not English... Remember, Commons is a multilingual project" ...Sicherlich talk 22:17, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
As I read your reply here, it seems like you want to get the old name of the file back. If that's really what you want: go ahead and fill in a new one for this file. I don't really think there isn't any problem with keeping the name as it is now. Riebietz Festival could be in some way confusing with the town. Also, als mentioned before: both Wikipedia's are using the ecaxt same name and arguing about a file that shouldn't have been renamed isn't helpful at all. --Wiki13 14:40, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Please help translate[edit]

Hello Wiki13, thanks for helping to translate the 2012 Picture of the Year contest. We still need help translating the contest interface and messages, along with reviewing existing translations. This page contains information about which pages need to be translated (please remember to take a look at all three tables on that page). Your help is really appreciated and helps make the premier competition on the world's largest collection of over 15 million freely licensed files possible.

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

File name van monumenten[edit]

Dag Wiki13, bedankt voor het veranderen van het adres uit de filename. Wat deed ik verkeerd?

Ik heb vorig jaar bewust geen monument meer toegevoegd. In mijn gemeente zijn meerdere boerderijen afgebrand. Ik heb geen idee wat mijn aandeel is wanneer een door mijn toegevoegde boerderij afbrand. Oude boerderijen hebben mijn voorliefde, ik zou niet meer kunnen slapen.

Ik wil bij alle boerderijen die door mij zijn geupload de file naam, waar nu het adres in zit, het adres verwijderen en vervangen door het monumenten nummer.

Hoe pak ik dit aan? met vriendelijke groet, --Lidewij (talk) 18:59, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
PS Ik wil dan ook zelf de namen op wikipedia veranderen, dan is het hele verhaal daar niet nodig.--Lidewij (talk) 19:15, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Ik denk dat er niet anders opzit dan alle afbeelding die je hebt geüpload door middel van Special:ListFiles/Lidewij C J. controleert. Deze speciale pagina geeft een lijst van door jou geüploade bestanden hier op Commons. Overigens: als jij hier een afbeelding wilt laten hernoemen en hij is in gebruik op een pagina, dan zal een bestandshernoemer, als hij SUL heeft, de oude bestandsnaam automatisch vervangen. --Wiki13 talk 19:29, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Wiki13, die lijst dat weet ik, maar het herbenoemen ging niet goed. Jij hebt het toch niet voor niets gecorrigeerd. Dus nog een keer; Wat deed ik verkeerd? --Lidewij (talk) 19:56, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Het enige wat misschien niet helemaal goed is gegaan, is toen je bij het hernoemingsverzoek een extra spatie voor de bestandsextensie hebt laten staan. Is dit wat je bedoelt of zit ik er nog steeds naast? --Wiki13 talk 20:46, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

De naam van dit mediabestand is verkeerd gespeld, onvolledig, misleidend, cryptisch, of voldoet niet aan de gevestigde naamgevingsconventie. Er wordt gesuggereerd dat dit mediabestand wordt hernoemd naar
Dat is de intro van het hernoemingssjabloon. Ergens daarachter staat meestal, als je het sjabloon hebt ingevuld, de reden dikgedrukt. Ik snap nog steeds niet helemaal waarop je doelt. --Wiki13 talk 21:30, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
