Reasons why you think you should be an admin.

I am a very dedicated user to the Commons and have contributed over hundreds and hundreds of self-made images to the Commons (last count almost 3000 images), all releasing them into the public domain. I intend to contribute much more over the course of time. Apart from that I am busy cleaning up categories and putting images into the right categories or articles. I would love to help out more with replacing redundant images and also in helping with deleting images that have been tagged for deletion. I notice that there is a considerable backlog with the "deletion" and the "redudant" category and I would love to help out there. I also search images that are missing a source or do not seem up to code, something that I am already doing as well on the English-language Wikipedia, where I am a sysop. I am also a member of the image team there, therefore I have knowledge about copyright tags and the rules concerning images. Therefore I kindly request administratorship in order to help out more and make the Commons more efficient. I also try to interlink Commons images into the normal Wikipedia articles as much as possible, in order to make most efficient use of memory space. Feel free to ask me anything, thank you.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support But please read Commons:Deletion guidelines (and other Commons: namespace pages) carefully, deletion tasks are often not straightforward. Obviously you have done some great work with uploads, and categorisation as well I think, despite a few orphans. :) pfctdayelise (translate?) 11:55, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing that out, yes of course I would not go on a deletion spree and I know one has to be careful, but whatever backlogs exist I will help out. Orphaned images? I thought I had none, odd.... the last time I checked those that were orphaned were all tagged as redundant by me, so I don't know if someone finally took care of those. For example I would also help out with replacing redundant images, which I have been doing as well. Gryffindor 08:46, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
