To discuss the operation of this page, please leave a message at "User talk:CommonsDelinker/commands/talk" or at the Village Pump.
This page is for editors who are not administrators to request for categories to be renamed and for files to be replaced by other files across all Wikimedia projects.
  • To request for a category to be renamed, go to the "Category moves" and follow the instructions.
  • To request for a file to be replaced by another file, for example, because the original file has been deleted or renamed, go to the appropriate sub-section of the "Image replacement requests" section and type the following command at the bottom of the relevant list: "{{universal replace|[OLD NAME.jpg]|[NEW NAME OR ANOTHER FILE.jpg]|reason=STATE THE REASON FOR THE REQUEST HERE.}}".
    • Requests relating to renamed files is for requesting occurrences of an old file name to be replaced with the new file name it has been renamed to. Click on the link in the sub-section.
    • Other requests is for listing other requests such as replacing one file with a different one.
    • Manual replacements is for listing files that must be handled manually. This sub-section is for experienced editors.

Please read the warnings below carefully before making any requests. Thanks.

Warnings


Please note:

  • No controversial name changes. All moves have to follow the language policy. Please do not request name changes that you know may be controversial (this includes, for example, renaming locations into a different local language—even if "that is the official name used there"). Do check file talk pages for objections before requesting a change here. If you wish to request such moves, please add the {{move}} template to the category pages, or use the COM:CFD procedure. This allows discussion on the issue to take place and objections—if any—to be made. You may wish to alert other editors to the discussion by leaving a message at the Village Pump.
If you challenge a request added here, please simply remove it and re-paste it below the "Category moves to be discussed" header down this page and add your reason for challenging it. It would also be kind to inform the requester (if signed) and invite them to discuss the requested name change.
  • Adding interwikis. Please include as many interlanguage links (interwikis) as possible in categories to be moved.
  • No replacement of images in other formats with SVGs. To avoid World War III, CommonsDelinker will ignore a command to replace an image if the new image is in an SVG format and the original is not.
  • Updating references to the new category name. It is the duty of the requester of a category move to update all references to the new category name where needed. This part of the task is not automated. (Use the "What links here" tab to find out which categories or pages are still linked to the old category name.)
  • Mediawiki limitation. If you add hundreds of requests at the same time, note that the Mediawiki software isn't able to process thousands of templates correctly for display. Thus, the statement "0 entries moved, 0 to go" may be inaccurate.
  • Bot problem. If the CommonsDelinker bot that carries out the tasks on this page is stuck for too long or you encounter other technical problems, please contact Magnus Manske.

Category moves[edit]

Request for a non controversial name change of a category:

1 green.svg All moves/name changes have to follow Commons policy. Please do not request changes that may be controversial.

2 green.svg You are fully responsible for the requested category move.

3 green.svg Please remember to include an explanation and your username to new requests. This makes it easier for admins to process them.

If requesting multiple moves for the same reason, please copy-and-paste the reason in.
Good explanations are short, clear, and concise, such as "typo", "full name", "consistency with related categories", and so on. Longer explanations are useful in complicated issues.

4 green.svg Use the following command template (please fill out all fields and stick on the exact format):

{{move cat|Old cat name|New cat name|3=Explanation|user=Your username}}

5 green.svg Updating references to the new category name is the duty of the requester. Update all references to the new category name where needed. This part of the task is not automated. (Use the "What links here" tab to find out which categories or pages are still linked to the old category name.)

Category moves declined or discussed[edit]

{{move cat|Cervus albirostris|Przewalskium albirostris|first name is no more valid ; Przewalskium albirostris is preferred by IUCN & Mammal Species of the World (Przewalskium albitrostre by ITIS)|A1AA1A}}

IUCN says "This species was formerly classified in a distinct genus as Przewalskium albirostris, however, morphological, behavioural and genetic analyses align this species with the Red Deer clade (Wilson and Mittermeier 2011)." Feel free to start a CfD request. --Achim (talk) 18:29, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

{{move cat|Alan Simpson (U.S. politician)|Alan Simpson (American politician)|Consistency with Wikipedia article title Alan Simpson (American politician)}}

I don't think this move is needed, consistency with en: wiki was never a reason. I had a quick look at naming of politicians, options are adding (politician) or (STATE politician). Only a few have (American politician), (U.S. politician) is far more common. -- Deadstar (msg) 16:24, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
Perfect! =) I requested the article to be moved then: en:Talk:Alan_Simpson_(American_politician)#Requested_move_24_March_2018. --Saippuakauppias (talk) 02:20, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

{{move cat|East China Normal University - Putuo campus|East China Normal University - North Zhongshan Road Campus}}

No reason provided --Ruthven (msg) 07:23, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Requests relating to renamed files[edit]

CommonsDelinker: Replace File:"Williams Country Store".JPG with File:Williams Country Store.jpg across all Wikimedia projects. Reason: File renamed: Criterion 3 (obvious error) · {{{3}}}

Other requests[edit]

CommonsDelinker: Replace File:Adjara.svg with File:Georgia Adjara location map.svg across all Wikimedia projects. Reason: The old "location file" has very poor quality and is incorrect. I've made new one to replace it.
CommonsDelinker: Replace File:Giant planes comparison.svg with File:Giant planes comparison - Updated.svg across all Wikimedia projects. Reason: Incorrect specifications in old image. New image contains dimensions sourced from the web pages of aircraft manufacturers.
CommonsDelinker: Replace File:US-NavyReserve-Emblem.svg with File:US Navy Reserve Crest 2017.svg across all Wikimedia projects. Reason: US Navy have updated the logo of the Reserve and the new logo should be used instead.
CommonsDelinker: Replace File:Bandera_mora.JPG with File:Bandera_Mora.svg across all Wikimedia projects. Reason: New, SVG version. Also, I hadn't realized I had switched the colors. The right ones are on the new vector version.

SVG version is 1 MB bigger than the PNG version. --Achim (talk) 07:34, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
@Achim55: I don't consider this a problem, as MediaWiki generates PNG thumbnails rather than displaying an SVG directly in an article. Guanaco (talk) 03:04, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
@Guanaco: Unfortunately the SVG file has an error - only one, but it states it will not be rendered properly because of it. Can you resolve this, or do you need assistance? Wikimandia (talk) 15:40, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
@Wikimandia: It may not matter. I'm starting a DR due to US copyright concerns. Guanaco (talk) 01:40, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
Oh wow, I didn't even notice it was downloaded from DeviantArt. Good call. Wikimandia (talk) 01:43, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
