Please quit making personal attacks and consider removing {{Retired}} from your user page when you're clearly not. Rodhullandemu (talk) 18:43, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
    @Rodhullandemu: Since you took exception to my brevity but were nonspecific, if you meant my brevity at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems/Archive 85#Proposal: Desysop Rodhullandemu, here is a more long-winded rationale: "per nom, mattbuck, pandakekok9, Casliber, Motacilla, RexxS, Serial Number 54129, Charlesjsharp, Nick, Prosfilaes, Pudeo, Davey2010, and all the evidence presented above. Such incivility, bullying, and use of advanced permissions while involved is unbecoming, especially for an Admin." If you instead meant my brevity at Commons:Administrators/Requests/Rodhullandemu (de-adminship), my rationale is the same, but with replacement of "above" with "at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems/Archive 85#Proposal: Desysop Rodhullandemu".   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 06:31, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

  • Weak Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Pretty knowledgeable about policy and copyright for the most part, but I do have concerns about his speedy tagging of File:Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs2.svg. This is clearly a self-made SVG, so the extent to which it makes use of Maslow's copyrighted expression and whether it exceeds COM:TOO is very debatable; in these cases COM:DR is a much better alternative. File:Flag of the President of Turkey.svg is another questionable tagging that should have gone to DR. In both cases they ultimately ended up at DR because someone else contested it, but ideally the nominator should know when speedy vs. regular deletion is more appropriate. I'm worried that he might be too trigger-happy and speedily delete images solely based on his view of copyright without considering whether there might be reasonable disagreement. -- King of ♥ 20:27, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
    @King of Hearts: Time will tell what the resolution of Commons:Deletion requests/File:Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs2.svg will be, probably longer than this RfA. I based my 08:31, 11 August 2020 (UTC) decision to speedy tag that file as a copyvio on established copyright law and the 02:49, 11 August 2020 (UTC) question of respected Admin Jmabel "How is that not a violation of Maslow's heirs' copyright?", currently at COM:HD#SVG file preview bugged. That file still has no sort of PD-text justification or sourcing. Just before I tagged it as no permission (not speedy), File:Flag of the President of Turkey.svg stated prima facie "I, the copyright holder of this work, release this work into the public domain." That turned out to be a false statement, so it seems I was right. "Date = 2010-02-19" is still false there, as the design is much older.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 02:02, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
    "Time will tell" means that speedy is automatically wrong, regardless of the end result, because speedy deletion is only for obvious cases. Again, I do not hold your opinion against you; if you had simply nominated them for deletion, I would respect that since your view is within the admin mainstream (one that Jmabel shares). However, the ability to foresee when a view might be controversial is a must for adminship, because the tools allow you to instantly delete a file with little scrutiny; we trust our admins to only do so when any reasonable admin would come to the same conclusion. And if a file description says something silly, that is grounds for fixing the description, not deleting the file. -- King of ♥ 02:24, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
    @King of Hearts: Sorry, you're right, I'll send potential copyvios that might be under TOO (or DM, like File:Darwin Platform Group of Companies.jpg) to DR.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 07:05, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Concerning the Maslow file: you didn't mark it as patrolled (it's still unmarked). I think marking a file as patrolled is something you need to do when you place any deletion template (maybe it would be good to have this automated), it's kinda sloppy not to. Eissink (talk) 12:50, 13 August 2020 (UTC).
    @Eissink: Frankly, I can't see any way to mark either Maslow file description page as patrolled at present, but I also can't see any patrol activity in their patrol logs. Also, I assumed that I, as a member of the Image reviewers group, and Kwj2772, as an Admin, would automatically have our edits to those pages marked as patrolled via our autopatrol rights, so there would be no need to patrol them manually.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 14:30, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
  • I don't know if that is how it works, it certainly doesn't appear that way. I just, after you reply, marked the file. It's not a big deal, but I always (unless I forget) flag files marked after attaching a template. Maybe something to contemplate further. Eissink (talk) 14:49, 13 August 2020 (UTC).

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Jeff is already doing most of the work that is usually informally allocated to admins, and is doing it a lot better than most admins; I think it would be good to give him the full toolset. That said: a caution to Jeff that he should be careful when using those specifically administrative tools. For example, King of Hearts is correct above that a question about copyright that is not blatant should not be a speedy delete.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg VERY STRONGLY OPPOSE: This user voted to keep two photographs which were subsequently deleted as potential underaged pornography. Note that in both cases, he voted "Speedy Keep". Whatever his reasons for doing so, his decisions were utterly inexcusable and there is no way that he should ever be granted administrative powers.
Speaking on a personal level, I've found Jeff G's performance to be far less than satisfactory. In the past, he has exercised extremely poor judgment by voting to keep clearly out of scope images which were later deleted by universal consensus. He has filed frivolous deletion requests, attempted to provoke negative reactions and brought complaints against good faith users when there was - quote - "no evidence of actual wrongdoing". Due to these and many other actions I've witnessed, I have no faith in this editor, and - in my humble opinion - neither should anyone else here. AshFriday (talk) 02:59, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
  • You do realise that the links you have provided clearly state that the files were not deleted as alleged pornography with children, but rather as out of scope. In fact their deletion under those grounds was overturned. I also find it interesting how a person can have a strong opinion when Special:ListFiles/AshFriday has two files, one of them is incorrectly rotated image and the other claims to have adjusted colours while somehow (accidentally?) changing the resolution. I trust that the closing admin will not simply count the votes, because something strange is happening here. ℺ Gone Postal ( ) 05:02, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Perhaps you didn't read the deletion logs very carefully, or else chose to ignore the following:
  • 21:49, 12 February 2018 Jcb deleted page File:Buang air besar.jpg (potential underage porn -)
  • 21:49, 12 February 2018 Jcb deleted page File:Penis ereksi.jpg (potential underage porn -)
  • Whatever the case, the images involved two naked and partially clothed youths with erections, neither of whom looked like adults. I have a "strong opinion" because potential under-aged pornography has no place on commons, and no administrative candidate has any business voting to keep it.
  • Incidentally, my upload count is irrelevant: as an established user with over two thousand edits under my handle, I have every right to vote in RFAs and express my reasons for doing so. I trust that the closing admin will take all of this into consideration when they tally the final count. You're welcome. AshFriday (talk) 08:39, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
  • I have seen that, I also see that this deletion was undone because it wasn't correct. I also see that this deletion was before the vote, and therefore you are telling a falsehood when you have claimed that the image was deleted as potential child pornography after Jeff G has voted keep. The correct statement would be "Jeff G has voted keep on a file that was initially wrongly deleted as 'potential child pornography'". But that doesn't sound as bad, despite being the truth. ℺ Gone Postal ( ) 10:21, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very involved and experimented user who deserves a chance. Christian Ferrer (talk) 17:19, 14 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per King of Hearts and previous nominations. Also per my recent limited interactions. He gave one line comments at this category discussion, and never really engaged. And then he basically told me to shut up. See diff. Unlike another admin who politely asked the same thing. See diff. By the way my last pings that Mike Peel complained about got another admin to reply. Looking at his past nominations I note what I feel concerning his interactions: "Bitiness" and officiousness. Too quick to act. A hat collector. But what I see most is a lack of intellectual rigor. Not all of us are cut out to be Wikimedia admins. I certainly am not. I don't have the patience to deal with some people. I am an admin/bureaucrat though of 2 wikis; one on Wikia and one on Shoutwiki. But I am the boss on those 2 particular wikis. --Timeshifter (talk) 17:24, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Jeff G. generally I think you are a very valuable editor but could you explain what you have learnt from your previous failed RfA (1, & 2 & 3)? Regards. T CellsTalk 20:50, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
    @T Cells: I think you and Multichill missed one, but using your numbering: from 1, I learned that people react badly to the "edit summary" template, to reduce RfA nomination text, to not advertise my RfA in my sig, to put udelh templates above headers, to avoid unblanking user talk pages, and to be less BITEy. From 2, I learned to stop using {{Oa}}, to avoid quick and flippant and facetious responses, and to avoid taking the bait and disengage from those who insist "it's your responsibility to address my concerns". In that RfA, I posted some of what I had learned in this edit 17:06, 16 June 2018 (UTC). In 3, I learned that opinions from other RfAs can be cited, that I shouldn't transfer from Flickr without careful curation (I don't do that any more), and that defending myself is frowned upon at RfA. In that RfA, I posted some of what I had learned in this edit 04:16, 16 April 2019 (UTC). For completeness, from Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jeff G. (which I did not name/number), I learned to be on my best behavior during RfA, and to put my babel boxes at the very top of my user and user talk pages. I've also learned that convincing users posting to a particular page to sign their posts is pointless and BITEy while SignBot is active on that particular page, so I don't do that any more.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 05:23, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
    Just to let you know I support your creation of {{oa}} and I actually prefer when people approach candidacy seriously and provide complete information in their nomination. In Russian language there is a phrase "Once burnt by milk you blow on water", I am unsure if such a saying exists in English, but perhaps you are overly cautious. ℺ Gone Postal ( ) 05:57, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
    @Gone Postal: Thanks. In English, a similar phrase is "Once bitten, twice shy". The portion I moved to my Introduction was as follows: I am a member of local groups Autoconfirmed users, File movers, Image reviewers, Rollbackers, Template editors, Translation administrators, and Users, as well as global groups Global IP block exemptions, Global rollbackers, and OTRS members. My previous RfAs here were Commons:Administrators/Requests and votes/Jeff G., Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jeff G., Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jeff G. 2, and Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jeff G. 3 (and I have learned from each of them). I have: Admin experience on Wikimedia Outreach, the Test and Test2 Wikipedias, Deletionpedia.org, RationalWiki.org, TheTestWiki.org, and various Wikia Fandom wikis; Bureaucrat experience on Test2 Wikipedia, TheTestWiki.org, and various Wikia Fandom wikis; and non-wiki Network Admin and Private IP Registrar experience at Canon USA and other client and employer networks in the New York Metro Area.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 06:47, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Over the past 13 years, you have failed no less than four different RFAs that I know of, with a large number of fellow editors opposing your various nominations. What are you doing wrong to turn so many good faith users against you? AshFriday (talk) 03:14, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
    • @AshFriday: That seems to me like a rhetorical question, and rather out of line. I realize that the theory is that questions here are for Jeff, but given the belligerent nature of the question I'm going to take the liberty of responding on his behalf, and he he can feel free to accept my response, dissent from it, or just leave it to stand on its own.
There are people who are not thrilled with Jeff because he doesn't pussyfoot around. He states his opinion clearly and doesn't avoid controversial matters. Inevitably, that means not everyone is always going to be happy with him.
I, for one, would like to see a few more admins who aren't afraid to stick their necks out. You may prefer otherwise, which is of course your prerogative. - Jmabel ! talk 03:13, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Hi.

I'm CptViraj, I'm a native speaker of Gujarati, near-native of Hindi, intermediate of English and I have basic understanding of Fiji Hindi, Sanskrit, Marathi, Bhojpuri, Haryanvi, Nepali.

I started contributing in May 2019, I'm a license reviewer and filemover. I usually tag obvious copyvios, broken redirects, inappropriate userpages, out of scope files for (speedy) deletion. I'm fimilar with all of general guidelines/policies and copyright policies of India. On the license reviewing side I review and interesting in reviewing Bollywood Hungama and easy GODL-India files only, but I have basic knowledge of YT and Flickr files too. I have learnt from my this mistake.

If promoted, I will help at COM:DR, COM:RFR, CAT:CV, CAT:PER, COM:AN, COM:LRR, CAT:MWUDIOV, etc maintenance tasks. I won't use my rights whenever i'm in doubt and will ask for advice.

Please feel free to ask questions, Thankyou! -- CptViraj (talk) 17:56, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I do have some suggestions, for example to be a little more explicit. For an admin it is sometimes good to just say "per above" or "because of what another person said", but in general it is best to restate things even when the appear to be obious. When a new user first comes across a person in position of power on Commons it should be a learning experience, not an attempt to guess what gods want at this particular time. But I find it a good sign that see the mistake that was done and to act to rectify it.

    Hi, I just wanted to let you know that you will probably get the nomination even without my vote, but I wasn't trolling when I have asked for a response, I honestly was trying to make up my mind. You don't have to respond on the deletion request, if you think that it's better to respond here (or even on my talk page), but I would appreciate it if you do. ℺ Gone Postal ( ) 05:59, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
    Ah apologize, somehow I didn't noticed your above comment. I'll continue on the DR page. -- CptViraj (talk) 06:23, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Another question. When do you think that speedy deletion without a deletion discussion should be allowed? ℺ Gone Postal ( ) 07:06, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
    When the reason is uncontroversial and meets our speedy deletion criteria. And for F1 and F10, I personally believe that old files should go through DR process. -- CptViraj (talk) 08:39, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question How would you respond if File:John_Muir_Trail_-_Yosemite_National_Park,_California,_USA_(27672489992).jpg was nominated for speedy deletion with the rationale: "derivative"? What would you take into consideration? --07:46, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
    @99of9: Thankyou for your question, here is my answer:
    As an admin: It is my own upload, so I won't make any actions. And if it wasn't my own upload, I will still leave it for another admin as I don't think it is a obvious copyvio, and currently I'm interested in performing actions for easy and obvious pages only.
    As a user/uploader: This image was part of a mass-upload I did from flickr, back then I wasn't that much fimilar with Commons copyright policies. I see that the drawing in the board could be copyrighted unless it is {{PD-old}}. I will try to find the history behind that drawing and if I failed, I will leave this to the admin. -- CptViraj (talk) 09:28, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question How would you respond if File:Fontainebleau, France - Synagogue (16867666306).jpg was nominated for speedy deletion with the rationale: "derivative"? What would you take into consideration? --07:46, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
    @99of9: Thankyou for your question, here is my answer:
    As an admin: It is my own upload, so I won't make any actions. And if it wasn't my own upload, I will decline the speedy deletion request and will move it to DR as this is a FOP case, so F4 doesn't apply.
    As a user/uploader: This image was part of a mass-upload I did from flickr, back then I wasn't that much fimilar with Commons copyright policies. I don't see any non-free content in the image and I'm not fimilar with COM:FOP France so I will leave this to other users. -- CptViraj (talk) 09:28, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question A photograph was taken in India in 1945, and the photographer died in 1980. Is the image acceptable for Commons, and why? -- King of ♥ 19:31, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
    @King of Hearts: Thankyou for your question. It would be in the public domain in India per {{PD-India}} and {{PD-India-photo-1958}}, But any work originating in India must be in the public domain, or available under a free license, in both India and the United States before it can be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. And for US I'm fimilar with TOO rules only, but I roughly read the PD rules after your question and I think the photograph would need to meet all the three requirements mentioned in {{PD-1996}}. For the note: As I said in my nomination "Currently I review and interested in reviewing Bollywood Hungama and easy GODL-India files only". Sorry! -- CptViraj (talk) 03:51, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question A user uploads a painting claimed to be from 1750 but provides no source information, so another user comes along and tags it with {{No source since}}. You are patrolling the log and come across this image. How would you handle this situation? -- King of ♥ 19:31, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
    @King of Hearts: Thankyou for your question. I will try to find the artist and the museum. If succed, I will use {{Artwork}} and for source it would be museum's institution template, for license it would be {{PD-old-100}} in {{PD-Art}}. -- CptViraj (talk) 04:20, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
