I usually see people being nominated here, but I am attempting to request an adminship for my own again, having been asked to try again in a couple of weeks; 5 months later, I think I can try again. I am an active contributor at fr.wikipedia (editcount), and besides the activity I have at Commons (categorization, tagging for deletion, translations), I sometimes need [someone] to perform administrative tasks on Commons.

People at fr.wikipedia know me well and probably think this nomination is a good idea. But for people who not know me and/or think the contrib lists aren't sufficient enough to give them an opinion about me, I would advise them not to hesitate to ask questions before voting, if they want to see if this status is suitable for my behavior, points of view, and such.

Here are some interesting things about me:

  • I can spot problematic licensing ;
  • If you want to see how I react to a (small, kind of) conflict: Template talk:Pink CC (please note that I will ask Samuel Blanc to send an OTRS permission once he's back, to make sure) ;
  • I watch on a daily basis, and participate to the FP candidates ;
  • I watch on a daily basis the deletion requests, but since I can't receive e-mails from Commons about them, it's when I think about it that I contribute ;
  • I tend to prefer interventions on Commons: and Template: namespaces; I prefer dialog rather than acts to fix problems (ie I know that, on DR, the thing that does matter is the arguments, not the number of votes) ;
  • My last (I know how to react now, and that my motivation text for deletion wasn't right) illustration of WP:POINT on a deletion request.

I have read and understand fully the project scope (which I am currently translating, nicely helped by Korrigan when I don't have time —thanks a lot to him—). I have read this section and know what being a sysop here does imply.

Well, I think don't have any other important thing to say, good or bad, about me. Please note that this is a second nomination: first is located here: Commons:Administrators/Requests and votes/Diti. If you are interested, here is my editcount for Commons.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Although the support of french-speaking IRC users who are only very occasional contributors on Commons is quite pathetic, the help of Diti could be useful.--Bapti 18:55, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
    • It may be true, but there is many issues of copyvio articles created on fr with the related copyvio images... uploaded into commons. We definitly need more avalaible french speaking people to speedy-delete this kind of thing. DarkoNeko 23:07, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Diti addressed the issues in the previous RfA. I'm glad they're taking their time to read through FOP. Also I'm glad that Diti can accept that we all can make mistakes at times. --Kanonkas(talk) 21:07, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question what would you do if somebody uploaded this image here? Also explain why you would do it. --Kanonkas(talk) 17:09, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Well, the image seems suitable for Commons, since the Creative Commons license applying to it is CC-by. Just to make sure, I usually quickly look at:
  1. The photo at full size, to see whether this is a repost or an original work;
  2. The other photos from the uploader at Flickr.
Here, the subject has been photographed by the person at Flickr, his photos are usually “All rights reserved” if identifiable people appear, but as it's not, he has put them under CC-by. So, as long as the correct source, author and license information are given, I wouldn't delete it.
I must add that, if a similar monument had been photographed in France, I would have (even as a sysop, to have the community consensus) requested its deletion, because Freedom of panorama isn't allowed over there.
(Interesting monument, by the way) Diti (talk to the penguin) 17:59, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Wrong answer, you might want to take a look at COM:FOP. --Kanonkas(talk) 19:16, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Impressive test… I have to admit that I have watched the page in the past but I've been only interested in the France section, living here and knowing that I'd have issues with it in the future. It's definitely a page I have to read completely, or at least looking at it before closing a RfD. Thanks, I have learned of this. :) Diti (talk to the penguin) 20:03, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Regarding to the Crown Fountain, I saw that this image had been formerly requested for deletion. Another contributor uploaded a non-copyrighted version… but what about the copyrighted version in file history? Unlike Wikipedia, I thought we cannot purge copyvios (but I've been told on IRC that we can), so… I'm pretty sure it has to be deleted and reuploaded (keeping the file history, though) someone has to delete this. Am I right? I just wanted to make sure. Diti (talk to the penguin) 22:01, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Done. Giggy (talk) 07:05, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Thank you. :) Diti (talk to the penguin) 18:06, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question. On your user page, you have a Microsoft logo with the caption “Public domain + copyrighted”. Is there anything wrong with that? --AVRS (talk) 16:56, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

I put it some months ago and forgot to remove it. It was a way to remember myself that, even for images that are within public domain, they are still registered trademarks and have to be used under special conditions ({{fr:Marque déposée}}) on fr.wikipedia, for instance. I planned for a while to put this userpage content on my Commons' one, but I'm a bit lazy for this at this moment. ;) Diti (talk to the penguin) 17:33, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
