Hi, I would like to receive autopatrol rights as since i work in the field of vexillology, when a flag is incorrect, it is a tedious task to request an exception to uploading a new version of an image uploaded by a different user. Thank you. Strenatos (talk) 07:38, 18 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I still have the same copyright concerns as the last time you applied (in February). What steps have you taken to address this? (flags uploaded by you deleted because of copyright). Abzeronow (talk) 17:11, 18 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]


I have uploaded a lot of media made for and by the Toki Pona community. I discovered that MP3 files are not allowed on Commons and this would be the way to allow for it. I've made many uncontroversial uploads of freely licensed works and many contributions. This will allow me use many useful tools. thank you very much in advance.

AutoWikiBrowser access[edit]

See also: Commons:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPageJSON.


I would like to apply a deletion notice in bulk to a category of images that I am appealing to be removed due to incorrect copyright status - Category:Images_from_Auckland_Museum_marked_with_cultural_permissions as per my request at Commons:Deletion_requests/Category:Images_from_Auckland_Museum_marked_with_cultural_permissions. There are ~2500 images requiring this notice as per the deletion request requirements, and OpenRefine seems untenable as a batch editing option as the reconciliation service currently has a bug that has stopped me from doing any editing to that category. Of course, if there is an alternative to AutoWikiBrowser I would be happy to hear it - anything is better than copy and pasting 2500 times! Thank you.

Dactylantha, you could request that job to be done on Commons:Bots/Work requests. --Achim55 (talk) 18:31, 29 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]


I would like to fix common spelling/formatting errors in English descriptions for files Thank you. Danielt998 (talk) 18:31, 5 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Lots of good file rename requests. Surprised they aren't a filemover yet. RodRabelo7 (talk) 03:09, 18 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Pedro Henrique Batistella (Projeto Mais+)[edit]

Hi! My name is Pedro and I'm working on the Project Mais Teoria da História na Wiki. We lauched some contests here on Commons this year and will lauch more, so to improve our workflow we would like to use the Campaign mode for the Upload Wizard. That's why I'm requesting this permission, to create and configure our campaigns. I have technical experience with MediaWiki, so "how to use" probably will not be a problem. Open for questions and thanks for your help. Best regards Pedro Henrique Batistella (Projeto Mais+) (talk) 21:58, 1 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Pedro Henrique Batistella (Projeto Mais+): , Your account is pretty much new and I do not see much involvement. Could you please tell us how much you know about Upload Wizard campaigns and if you been through the guidelines? ─ Aafī (talk) 20:44, 12 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]


I need this right because at Wikiproyecto LGBT+ in the Wikipedia in Spanish we are going to start an internal campaign to upload photos taken by members of the Wikiproject. Thank you. MiguelAlanCS (talk) 19:21, 12 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Hi @MiguelAlanCS: Could you confirm that you have been through upload wizard guidelines and understand why this namespace works? Best regards, ─ Aafī (talk) 20:41, 12 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Yes. I confirm that I know what it is about. The objective is to create a permanent upload campaign among members of the Wikiproject and new users, and also to call on everyone to make efforts to release audiovisual material. MiguelAlanCS (talk) 21:00, 12 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
