English: Good Morning, Community. I am ChristianBier and I'd like to request for adminship. I came from german Wikipedia to Commons, where my EditCount is more than 30.000 since August 2005, half of them with images. At german wikipedia, I work at the so called "Dateiüberprüfung" (in English it is "File Checking"), which checks Files on copyright problems. (In the last four weeks, I replaced the obsolete licesetag PD in over 15000 images in German Wikipedia). Maybe it will be one of my main parts of my Commons work. In my opinion my knowledge in copyright laws, licensing and rigts (freedom of panorama, personally rights, etc.) is very good (outside of Wikipedia & Commons I work in my own Multimedia Design studio). I'm a native speaker in German, but I think my English is good enough to communicate with Users. I want to help with "speedy deletions" or reorganisations of categorys, if I became admin. But I will also work on Transfers to commons or reviewing. If you have questions, please feel free, and ask me. Thank you for taking the time to read my request. And thanks in Advance for Votes and Comments. ChristianBier 06:59, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Deutsch: Hallo Community. Mein Name ist Christian Bier und ich kanditiere hiermit für den Posten eines Administrators auf Commons. Ich kam über die deutsche Wikipedia in die Commons. In der deutschen Wikipedia habe ich seit August 2005 mehr als 30.000 Edits getätigt, ca. 50 % im Bildbereich. Dort arbeite ich in der Dateiüberprüfung, welche die Dateien auf Urheberrechts- oder Lizenzprobleme überprüft und diese ggf. bereinigt. (In den letzten 4 Wochen habe ich bspw. rund 15000 Bilder mit der veralteten Bild-PD-Lizenzvorlage überprüft und Lizenzen angepasst, so dass siese Vorlage nicht mehr auf DE-WP existiert) Dies soll auch einen Hauptteil meiner Arbeit in den Commons darstellen. Meiner Meinung nach besitze ich sehr gute Kenntnisse im Bereich Urheberrecht und Lizensierung. (Panoramafreiheit, Recht am eigenen Bild, etc.) Dies liegt auch an meiner Arbeit in meinem eigenen Multimedia-Design Studio im realen Leben außerhalb der Wikipedia. Neben meiner Muttersprache Deutsch spreche ich sehr gut Englisch, außreichend, um mit anderssprachigen Benutzern zu kommunizieren. In den Commons würde ich mich gerne u.a. der Abarbeitung der Schnelllöschanträge, Lizenzproblemen und der Reorganisation einiger Kategorien widmen. Ich werde aber auch weiterhin im Bereich von Transfers aus Wikipedia und deren Reviews engagieren. Wenn ihr Fragen habt, stellt sie mir bitte. Ich danke euch, dass ihr euch meine Kandidatur durchgelesen habt und natürlich im Vorraus bereits für eure Votes und Kommentare. ChristianBier 15:15, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

  • Hi there. It would be useful for the candidate and for other users if you could provide some rationale for Opposing this Request. Thanks. Nick 22:06, 8 December 2007 (UTC)
Hi there: On my point of view Christian's lack of communication (in de:) and severe source specification (on commons) [1], [2], [3] is not usefull for the administration. And Image:Gleibi.jpg will be delete because it's out of project scope. His job on de: reminds me on Siebrand :-( --Herrick 16:07, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
For the pictures you mentioned, I only remove the borders around, working on the Category:Images with borders. I just edit the pictures to reduce the mass of pictures in the cat. The checking of License or Source in my opinion is an other part. Why my work in de reminds you on Siebrand? --ChristianBier 18:23, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
Herrick, ChristianBier simply removed the borders from those images (and we hate borders :-). He had nothing to do with the source info or even tagging the lack thereof. And I don't think Image:Gleibi.jpg will be deleted. Userpage images are within our scope and ChristianBier correctly voted to keep it. Rocket000 20:14, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
It's on thing to argue on image licences and another to communicate with users or doing your work completly (than you've to look at source infos which marked by another user). If your're taking a look at this "nice" automatic bot greetings, if Christian misses something, it won't astonishing anyone how many "old" users on german wikipedia harmed by this action and quit their account? But's not Christians fault - it's the the general bad clima of conversation between Administrators and "normal" users in the wikipedia. I think there's doubt on Christians engagement (50% of his edits occur on this month!), but I don't see a logical or emotional motive for doing buerocratic work like this on his side. --Herrick 07:51, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
The Bot-Messages, if I miss something, don't came from me. The BLUBot makes this message, and this is not my bot. It is C-M's Bot. The "nice" greeting was made by User Forrester and was also not mine. Your right, the clima of conversation in the german Wikipedia is very bad sometimes, but your also right that it isn't my fault. Since the problems I had with a user more than a year ago, I only had positive and quiet and very normal discussions. ChristianBier 09:13, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I just can't get my head round all that's going on above but Henrick has provided no valid reason as to why Christian should not be an administrator. Nick 16:55, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral I just made up my mind in coming here and saying something after this. I have no doubts about Christian's knowledge or engagement in copyright issues, but maybe there's something lacking in the way things work on Commons? I don't know, maybe I'm being too demanding, so I won't stay in the way for Christian's adminship. Patrícia msg 23:51, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
