Occasional systematic sort key adjustment. (I'm an Admin at en.Widipedia, and use AWB at times for that there, among other uses.)

To complete photo competition tasks (WLE and WLM in Thailand) Thank you. taweethaも (talk) 15:18, 26 July 2015 (UTC)



Having contributed here since July 2007 with file uploads, categorisation, nominating files for deletion etc I have developed a strong understanding of what edits are appropriate for Commons, and therefore believe I would be capable of patrolling edits and new pages. Thank you. Mattythewhite (talk) 19:40, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

I've made over 2,000 edits and have made over 60+ uploads, and also have rollback rights on the English 'Pedia[1] so I know what is and isn't vandalism, I should admit I've never yet reverted any vandalism here but as Twinkle doesn't work this would come in handy for when I do spot any, Anyway Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 22:42, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Anything that helps cutting down the cross-wiki vandalism would be useful. 5 uploads, 750 edits, plenty of sockpuppeteers and vandals pursued. Thank you. Bazj (talk) 12:34, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

First of all to correct my own mistakes. English is not my mother tongue and sometimes I make little mistakes (like missing letters in the words and so on) and sometimes forget to change wrong autonumbering while uploading numbers of images in categories. Thank you. Stolbovsky (talk) 19:35, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
✓ Done Seems unproblematic. Revent (talk)


It would be helpful to have the right to rename files if necessary. Thank you. Palauenc05 (talk) 15:21, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

To save waiting for the file to be moved by some else then renamed in Wiki. Thank you. BaldBoris 12:32, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I would like to correct some mistakes I've made when upload files from Flickr and rename some files from this category. Thank you. Helmy oved 02:25, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

I work with this category. I want to have 'filemover' to correct my own mistakes. I know English on 2-level and sometimes I make mistakes.--Tankist-777 17:01, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
 Not done only 370 edits. Please use {{rename}} for now. --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:14, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Strike Eagle[edit]

So that I can fix the file names myself. Have been active for the past couple of months. Have requested 69 file move requests(including current ones) and all of them have been renamed per my recommendations. I hope I'm trustworthy enough to perform the task myself. Cheers, ƬheStrikeΣagle 16:54, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
✓ Done Although you don't have 1000 edits yet, i think we can trust you with this tool. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:59, 19 July 2015 (UTC)


I've done a fair amount of category cleanup and other maintenance tasks, and I'd like to be able to help with minor technical fixes in file names (as I requested, e.g., here). Thanks! Alkari (?), 23 July 2015, 04:17 UTC

Hello, I’d love to get the filemover flag so I could correct my own and others' typos. Thank you. Ле Лой (talk) 09:51, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

I've made a great many uploads here and would like to help this queue as my own requests sit at the bottom (and thus delay me from getting back to fixing articles). I don't believe I've had a move request declined before, so I think I've shown an understanding of its proper function. Thanks! – czar 14:40, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

Upload Wizard campaign editors[edit]

Максим Підліснюк[edit]

I need to create a campaign for uploading large number of files on one of the OTRS-query. Thank you. Максим Підліснюк (talk) 18:59, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

@Максим Підліснюк: @Ahonc: Since when campaign are needed for OTRS massuploads? --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:04, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
So. What criteria? We usually give rights for trusted users. OTRS-agents are trusted as for me. Well, I'll revoke status until then end of this discussion.--Anatoliy (talk) 19:10, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
This permission is needed to setup json campaigns for upload wizard. This campaigns can be used for events (like WLE, etc-). But not for otrs uploads, this don't make sense to me. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:11, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Let me explain the situation. There is a proposal on the conditions of a free upload licenses a large number of photos. Necessary to minimize all possible technical obstacles (by not very experienced on using the computer). So why would not go to the meeting? --Максим Підліснюк (talk) 19:16, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
To be honest, that would be very difficult to do with a campaign. There are some feature requests (like phabricator:T36332) reported on phab. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:18, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Currently, I have almost finished text campaign, where the user will need to specify only the description and name. Author, licenses - all automatically. It is much easier and faster than to request phab. Once again, please go to the meeting... --Максим Підліснюк (talk) 19:22, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Can we see your .json file please? --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:49, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Could, if I had the right to create--Максим Підліснюк (talk) 21:30, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
