Wuestenigel (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploadsblock user[edit]

This is a User with more than 10.000 files shot by his own and uploaded on Commons via flickr2commons.

He doesn't use a description nor categories for these files, and - what's most important - has uploaded many copyvios like logos, comic and lego characters, designed packages, craftswork and so on.

He acts like this since 2014 and therefore received several warnings on his user talk page. Since now he never answered or changed his behaviour.

On 16th November I wrote him as an Admin and requested that he should speedy delete all his copyvios. He answered, that he won't upload copyvios in the future and deleted ~ 29 files, all clear copyvios (so he knows, what is my concern).

On 21st November he uploaded the next copyvios, f.i. File:Kind findet den verloren gegangenen Ball (38397556906).jpg.

On 23rd November I gave him a final warning and time for one week to clean up his stock of files. He just answered and did nothing. --Emha (talk) 14:51, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi Emha,

you wrote me and I replied. I also took action and deleted a lot of pictures. The lego pic you mentioning was just a mistake. Mistakes happen.

As you can see here (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Zidanie5) I also take care that really a lot of images are being adjusted just right now.

--Wuestenigel (talk) 14:54, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

That is not you who is placing categories in some of your files. --Superbass (talk) 20:24, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
Indeed, that is me. He asked me to help him sort things out adding cats to his uploads, since he is not a proficient user at these sort of things. So I believe he means to do right but is misguided and needs time to do so (but COI so disregard this).--Zidanie5 (talk) 08:45, 1 December 2017 (UTC)
The question is: why does a "not proficient user" upload > 10.000 files with really bad metadata (categories are obligatory!) and leaving them completely alone afterwards? There happened many "mistakes" since 2014 and no responses. --Emha (talk) 10:06, 1 December 2017 (UTC)
The problem isn't solved, as you can see on the several new sectors on his talkpage since the starting of this request. --Emha (talk) 09:43, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

User:Sayabel[edit]

Hello, can any Sysop block User:Sayabel, because I nominated all of his files for deletion he is nominating my photos for a deletion as a reaction!, like here, here, here, here and many others photo! --Alaa :)..! 23:04, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

I will not seek to stop you because it is not my right as I have done. Despite your attempts to delete the deletion template yourself, it conflicts with the laws . But I reject the threat because it is inappropriate. I have nominated your photos for deletion because they violate the copyright in Egypt. Note that the images were recently shot in a few months And not pictures for educational purposes --Sayabel (talk) 01:08, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
@Sayabel: Immediately stop this nonsense, or we have to stop you. --Didym (talk) 01:18, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
@Didym: Thank you and apologize . Please undo deleted my photos .. undo nominated all of files for deletion, like * File:Mervat.talaawe.jpg

--Sayabel (talk) 01:22, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

@Sayabel: You will have to make convincing arguments at Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Sayabel and then wait for about six days.   — Jeff G. ツ 02:08, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

That user also perpetrated revenge DR Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by User:Jeff G. (but did not notify me of it) and made an ad hominem attack in this edit.   — Jeff G. ツ 01:47, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

This user appears not to be here to legally improve the project. Please see Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Masryy.   — Jeff G. ツ 16:06, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Files were deleted and user hasn't been active, I think the best thing is to watch the user and block if more images violating policy are uploaded. Jon Kolbert (talk) 17:05, 12 December 2017 (UTC)c

Commons:Wiki Science Competition 2017 in Italy[edit]

Hi, could someone put a semiprotection on Commons:Wiki Science Competition 2017 in Italy. I am very busy in these final days and I cannot undo these vandalism in real time. I have found the second major vandalism in few days, plus the page is fine and structured, the required changes at the moment are the images galeries and the coverage, but for a couple of days they can be done only by registered users (that is me)

So a semiprotection up to December, the 15th would be useful. thank you.--Alexmar983 (talk) 04:18, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

✓ Done Semi-protected for 20 days. Don't be soft. Face-smile.svg --jdx Re: 10:41, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
