  • Make sure you've read and understand the file renaming guidelines
  • Don't blank pages! Use {{Speedy}} instead like {{speedy|redundant redirect}} or {{speedy|making room for another upload}} when appropiate. If you do blank the filepage attempting to remove a redirect it will incorrectly be shown as a blue link on other pages and auto-missing-tag bots will run over the page like crazy. If you or someone else wants to upload another image on the title where an image you moved away from used to be, still request speedy. This way the page-history will start at the upload and not at the blanking of an unrelated redirect.
