new Suman Kumar Mallick sockpuppet[edit]

See w:en:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Suman Kumar Mallick. Also, please delete this image as it has been used for vandalism on Yamla's enwiki talk page. Thanks. theinstantmatrix (talk) 18:31, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Please protect

I suggest: full protection, infinite. Due to Commons:OVERWRITE pranks; please consult [1], [2]. --WTM (talk) 23:26, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done Trying one year of upload semi-protection. I also blocked the user responsible for the latest vandalism. Guanaco (talk) 01:51, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Protected edit request.[edit]

Can an administrator please alter Template:PD-MacaoGov so that it automatically categorizes files into the category "PD-MacaoGov" instead of "PD MacaoGov", as well as add {{#if:{{{type|}}}. Ideally the name of the category should match the license itself, and the lack of the hyphen is causing issues with subtype categorization. I can move Category:PD MacaoGov myself but the license is protected. Fry1989 eh? 16:38, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Can't upload a 53 sec long poem read by its author[edit]

Hello, I tried to upload a 53 sec long poem read by its author (Сидоров, Валентин Митрофанович — Википедия) in mp3 format for later adding it to the author's page but the upload was blocked and I was told to contact an administrator.

Can anyone unblock it? It happened here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:UploadWizard

  • Signing your posts on talk pages is required and it is a Commons guideline to sign your posts on deletion requests, undeletion requests, and noticeboards. To do so, simply add four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your comments. Your user name or IP address (if you are not logged in) and a timestamp will then automatically be added when you save your comment. Signing your comments helps people to find out who said something and provides them with a link to your user/talk page (for further discussion). Thank you.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 01:20, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
@Kdorje: Hi, and welcome. Too many people try to upload audio files that are still copyrighted by the authors, lyricists, performers, etc. without proper licenses from those people. Please read MediaWiki:Abusefilter-warning-mp3, and have the author/performer send permission via OTRS or OTRS/ru with a copy to you.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 01:20, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
