File:Lina Baumberger.jpeg nominated three times[edit]

Please indef semi protect the file page and speedy close the DR. File nominated three times (maybe) by the same person under three different IP addresses. --Amitie 10g (talk) 13:07, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

✓ Done Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 14:04, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
For reference, an IP keeps on nominating files related to the Sutermeister family for deletion. I am speedy closing any DR and protecting all files that are nominated more than once. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 20:53, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
I noticied that, too. Should be a good idea to block these range of IPs? --Amitie 10g (talk) 21:10, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
I soft-blocked 178.197.224.0/20 for a month. Here is the list of anonymous contributions from this range since 1 January 2016. Since 13th December DRs only. --jdx Re: 10:00, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Pitpisit[edit]

Pitpisit (talk · contributions · Number of edits · recent activity · block log · User rights log · uploads · Global account information) Seem to have a fit in the Greek Education logos. Looks like revenge DRs to me; can't do it myself as I'm involved in his DRs. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 00:09, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

I warned Pitpisit not to upload more copyvios. Taivo (talk) 09:11, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

File:Close up photograph of the Head of a Male Neopalpa donaldtrumpi.jpg[edit]

File:Close up photograph of the Head of a Male Neopalpa donaldtrumpi.jpg is protected (why?) via Commons:Auto-protected files/wikipedia/he. The image ought to be categorised in Category:Neopalpa donaldtrumpi. Please unprotect it. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 03:46, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

 Not done per Commons:Auto-protected files. All files used on the HE-wiki startpage are protected. I changed the category, tho. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 04:21, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
✓ Done. The file is still protected, but I reviewed the license and changed the category. Taivo (talk) 08:58, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Requesting Protection[edit]

File:Istanbul intc.jpg is likely to be posted shortly to the main page of the English Language Wikipedia at the In the News (ITN) section. Please protect this file. Thanks -Ad Orientem (talk) 00:27, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
