Unblock request: Malikxan[edit]

This user has requested an ublock. As I voted against in their last request they pinged me. I have been trying to see if they understand what they did wrong. There is a desire to contribute FWIW and a undertaking to upload their own work. Would welcome comments from others Gbawden (talk) 08:26, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Good day! The user has been making constructive edits on the Uzbek Wikipedia, and by now fully understands the importance of respecting copyright. I believe we should definitely cut him some slack. Cheers! :) Nataev talk 14:57, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
Let's see how they will respond to my question. 4nn1l2 (talk) 11:38, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks @4nn1l2:, they still don't seem to get it Gbawden (talk) 13:04, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
This is also my idea of the situation. They seem to think that procedure like adding templates and simply reading the rules does the trick, but I haven't seen any reflections on the original copyright issues. So I too asked them a question. De728631 (talk) 14:32, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Category:Selina Egle at the 2020 Winter Youth Olympics[edit]

This category is indefinitely move protected since 8 May 2020. I think that we should lift this protection. The protection was related to this conflict which is now expected to be resolved through this discussion (see also this discussion where one of the involved editors promised not to continue to move this category without obtaining consensus first). I asked the protecting admin (see [1]) but got no response since more than two weeks. --AFBorchert (talk) 22:30, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

I simply had not noticed AFBorcherts request through all the other things that poppud up around this time. -- Marcus Cyron (talk) 00:18, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
No problem, thanks for removing the protection. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 05:01, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
✓ unprotected. Taivo (talk) 07:18, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

File:Arya Shah.jpg[edit]

Repeated copyvios so many times, and repeated misuse by LTA. Can we salt it if we aren't using it for honeypot? Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:23, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Images used on project portals[edit]

Please upload and move protect File:Wikimedia Cloud Services logo with text.svg (used on https://www.wikimedia.org), File:Sea and sky light.jpg (used on https://www.wikivoyage.org) and File:Bookshelf-40x201 6.png (used on https://www.wikibooks.org, https://www.wikinews.org, etc.) as they are used on various Wikimedia project portals. Thanks. GreenComputer (talk) 06:17, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

✓ Done. [Edit, Move and Upload=Allow only template editors and administrators] (indefinite). Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat contribs | talk ] 06:33, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
Any reason their file description pages need to be edit protected as well? There doesn't seem to be much point given that upload and move protection prevent any changes to the images and none of the portal uses link back to the file description pages. Thanks. GreenComputer (talk) 06:49, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

Images uploaded by socks[edit]

Don't know if this is the correct place. On English Wikipedia, I have run across File:Gloria Swanson parking lot.jpg, which was uploaded in 2012 by User:Candleabracadabra. That user is blocked on Englilsh Wikipedia as a confirmed sock of User:ChildofMidnight. Both the sockpuppet account and sock master account are here on Commons, but not active. Should the image be removed from Commons? Maile66 (talk) 12:56, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

In the eyes of the Commons community, they haven't abused their multiple accounts here as far as we know, so we wouldn't consider that sockpuppetry. And even if they had committed sockpuppetry, we had a recent RfC proposing to make sockpuppetry on its own a valid reason to delete a file from Commons, but it didn't gain enough consensus. So files uploaded by that user should be deleted only if they are out of project scope, have copyright problems, or the file itself violates any other policies (see our deletion policy). File:Gloria Swanson parking lot.jpg might be the second case, as there's no freedom of panorama in the United States for 2D works, so I'm going to nominate that image for deletion. Thanks, pandakekok9 06:33, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
Maybe {{PD-FLGov}} applies for the plaque, that case the image does not need to be deleted. Taivo (talk) 09:35, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
I don't think a plaque fits in the definition of a "public record"... pandakekok9 12:06, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
Click "Definition of "public record"" on the license. In my opinion plaque is a public record in Florida. Taivo (talk) 12:13, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Agreed IMO, the plaque, as a work of a Floridian municipal government, is part of the public record in Florida, and, therefore, in PD per {{PD-FLGov}}. Ìch heiss Nat. Redd mìt mìr. 02:16, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

Unprotection[edit]

Request unprotection of Jamal al din~commonswiki? Here is the protection summary: 07:35, 31 March 2006 Zscout370 (talk · contribs) protected User:Jamal al din (sockpuppet of banned user [edit=sysop:move=sysop]).Jonteemil (talk) 09:40, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

✓ Done No need to protection after 14 years. 4nn1l2 (talk) 09:45, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Checkmark This section is resolved and can be archived. If you disagree, replace this template with your comment. Jonteemil (talk) 11:06, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

User:Rodhullandemu/Commons.js[edit]

Could you please drop protection to "Allow only autoconfirmed users". Thanks. Rodhullandemu (talk) 18:53, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

✓ Done, but, if I'm not mistaken, the semi-protection doesn't do anything (unless you are not an autoconfirmed user, which isn't the case). By default, only interface administrators and you can edit your userscripts. Ahmadtalk 23:53, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Not even administrators, nowadays. You would need an Interface administrator for that. I think the problem was that being completely protected prevented Rodhullandemu to edit his own page, not he is no longer an administrator here. Platonides (talk) 00:01, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
