Taiwania Justo[edit]

Recently I proposed some remaining requests according to the renaming policy, and I wish that I can help the work about the file renaming following related policies and guidelines. Thank you. This is Taiwania Justo speaking (Reception Room) 02:50, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question @Taiwania Justo: how do you use spell checking software with English? When you see a word underlined in this way
in a text area, which steps (if any) do you make to fix it? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:45, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

  • If the underlined words is (a) proper noun(s), and the spelling is (are) obvious wrong for the objects in the file, I consider that it matches the criterion 3. But if the proper noun(s) use(s) the unofficial spelling, but the words can describe the same object in a file, I considered that the name must be remained. As for common words, unless the spelling of these words is obviously matches the criterion of the file renaming reasons, I considered that the name must be also remained. Finally, if the spelling of the words is controversial, I will use "request mode" and let the other file movers to do some double check, or do some discussions. This is Taiwania Justo speaking (Reception Room) 01:35, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
    @Taiwania Justo: please, work on your serious problem with the very word “renaming”. First, edit your posts to fix all inappropriate substitutions. I don’t deem probable to mistype the word to “remaining” directly, hence conjecture a typo to something like “*remaning” or “*remnaing” and then a clueless application of spell checker. Don’t do such things, please. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:33, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
@Incnis Mrsi: according to my reading the problem is not with spelling, but idiom: I believe the intended meaning of be remained could be expressed as left alone or remain unchanged. (Hence my comment below.) FWIW I don’t expect discussions among users to be held to the same linguistic standard as ‘curatorial’ information.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 16:09, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
@Odysseus1479: three or four occurrences may be well-considered, but “some… requests according to the remaining policy” is definitely mistaken. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 16:58, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
Agreed; I didn’t notice that one—sorry—and my interpretation above definitely does not work there.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 17:09, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
@Incnis Mrsi, Odysseus1479: Fixed. It's a typing error in order to the fast-typing. All the meanings in the reason of application are "renaming." This is Taiwania Justo speaking (Reception Room) 00:45, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I declined a criterion #3 rename request on File:Beautiful sunset in Taidong beach.JPG just recently, on the ground that it uses a reasonably common (but unofficial, minority) spelling that is unlikely to be mistaken for anything else. (Also influencing my decline was that the file is easily locatable under the official spelling, from both the description and the categorization. I guess they come from different styles of romanization or represent different Chinese dialects.) I am glad to see Taiwania Justo has taken that on board and seems to understand the difference between an error that calls for correction and a harmless variation.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 03:10, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

  • ✓ Done per above. ~riley (talk) 23:28, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Actia Nicopolis[edit]

I have uploaded some files and occasionally there was need for renaming some of them. By having the permission to move files, I could help others that are in the same position. Thank you. Actia Nicopolis (talk) 08:30, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

I requested many moves and all accepted. Put "an active user and native of Arabic and Persian" beside of "many file name errors related to MENA places" that you see on Commons. Thank you. Rafic.Mufid (talk) 21:08, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question @Rafic.Mufid: what do you know about one Mohammad Ghorbanpour and his fan club? It is true that certain people are that obsessed with this artist that push his biography into every wikipedia? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 21:40, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

  • @Incnis Mrsi: Do you wish to clarify the relevance of your unanswered question? It will at the least, save me from digging to find the answer, assuming it is relevant.. ~riley (talk) 07:43, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
    In fact, there was a kind of answer. The candidate certainly realizes how my question is relevant; let him explain it himself if necessary. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 07:57, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Path slopu[edit]

I have uploaded some files to commons. But some of them are in wrong name and there was need to rename it. I can also use this right to help other users to rename files. Kindly plase give this right. Thank you. Path slopu(Talk) 08:01, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Too much preoccupied with editing the own user page in en.Wikipedia and creating various userboxes. On the same page waves membership in the Counter-Vandalism Unit, but I never saw Path_slopu undoing vandalism. Sorry, but the candidate need to work seriously to obtain a significant promotion. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:02, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
@Incnis Mrsi: Sir, I didn't undo any vandalism, because I haven't the rollbacker right. -Path slopu(Talk) 12:27, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
The “didn't undo any vandalism, because haven't the rollbacker right” assertion is indicative itself, but let discussion on available anti-vandalism techniques alone. If the candidate didn’t undo any vandalism—by the own assertion—then for what on Internet did he subscribed as a Counter-Vandalism Unit’s member? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:43, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
@Incnis Mrsi: Sir, when I get the rollbacker right I will actively participate in counter vandalism. So I joined CVU -Path slopu(Talk) 15:52, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
  •  Not done Candidate seems unaware that he can actively participate in counter vandalism without the rollbacker right. I see no grounds for approval at this time, please learn to utilize your current toolset before requesting additional rights. ~riley (talk) 07:35, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
