My edits: [1] on Commons, I'm editor from I'm working there with templates, running a bot (WarXboT) and writing mostly technical things. In december I've changed all flags used on to SVG format and now my target is to completly change all possible graphics to SVG format (dreams). Now I'm working on commons - I'm drawing SVG versions of Coats of Arms of Polish cities and in the same time I'm unlinking old versions of COAs. I want sysop rights because it will be a little bit faster if I can delete unused graphics of changed COAs.

  1. Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment Please be aware that deletion on Commons is more complicated process then in Polish wiki. You must be sure that image is not used in any project, especially when you replacing it with different one. Please always use meta:User:Duesentrieb/CheckUsage. --EugeneZelenko 15:29, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
    • I always check it - please ask Ausir/tsca/Radomil/taw - they are making deletions for me. Now I can tell you, that COAs of Polish cities are mostly on pl, de, nl wikis and sometimes en, ru. I have accounts on these wikis (not all) just for unlinking images. Hope my answer is satisfactory :) --WarX 18:59, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
  2. Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment With the recent heated complaints from local users, I wouldn't be in a hurry to delete "improved" images. Just something to keep in mind. pfctdayelise (translate?) 06:34, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
    • I have all orginals on my hard disk - I know that it is possible, that those graphics may be needed, so I want not to delete them. There is one reason for my fast action: I think that the project is very very big (more than 640 wikis ?) and lot of users is lazy so if we won't delete unlinked, redundant images in short period they will propagate back into wikis. I have a sample of this - I nearly completely unlinked redundant flags in PNG format using SVG versions, but they are propagating back. And the last thing: lots of this COAs which I work with are simple copied from first page in the network found by google and signed PD-Polishsymbol and personally I do not agree which such politics :P --WarX 08:31, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
  3. Reasons given by WarX in support of his candidature are not convincing. His activity on Commons is of a recent date, (Nov. '05), and doesn't seem to differ from the normal user contribution. Everyone would like to work ”a little faster”. Wlos 08:10, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
    • But I work hard - drawing COAs on quite slow machine (PIII) is very absorbing :P --WarX 08:31, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
      • You don't need admin privileges, especially a privilege to delete pages from Commons, to draw anything on any kind of machine. Wlos 10:42, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
        • Please read my two earlier answers :P--WarX 10:46, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
          • They have nothing to do with my objections. Wlos 12:24, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
          • Wlos is just a troll, please disregard him. ;-) Taw 20:29, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
            • What could I say? This is just a personal invective, not an argument in WarX's case. Wlos 12:24, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
