Greetings. Could you expand this post a bit more? I'm not sure what it means, and what it is responding to (if anything). By the way, I have long admired the work you've done - and continue to do - documenting cemetery statues, which is also the main focus of my work.

Thank you Seauton. I just requested that your edits will be marked as "patrolled" automatically. This will help us to highlight and control the edits of other occasional users. --Sailko (talk) 20:25, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, I ask the rollback right here to fight more easily vandalism on Commons. I have this right on others projects (wikidata & frwiki) where I am an active rollbacker on frwiki and I have increased my patrol range with the small wikis, Wikidata and now Commons, and if I can have this right, I will only use it in case of pure vandalism, and it can help me in this case during my Commons patrols. I have already reverted vandalism here and reported vandalism to sysops. I always try to apply the good faith, and to notify users that I revert to inform them, it's important for me and the user. My edit count is low here, but I think I can be trusted for the good use of this right. I'm available to answer to any questions. Thanks in advance for your consideration of my request. Sincerely, ShifaYT Commons-logo.svg ✉Talk 16:00, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

System-search.svgSee also: Renaming guideline.


To rename images I have uploaded; to change meaningless or ambiguous names of files I and others have uploaded related to the Smithsonian American Art Museum; to harmonize names for the set of images from the Smithsonian American Art Museum that multiple users have uploaded. Over the years, Wikimedia volunteers and Smithsonian employees have uploaded open access images from the Smithsonian American Art Museum collection to Commons. As such, naming conventions have differed and evolved. Most of the images from this museum are now uploaded by SI employees, and we've settled on a naming scheme, which I'd like to apply to images from this museum already uploaded to Commons. Further, I'm happy to relinquish these permissions after one year and reapply/request if needed. Thank you. Sonoet2 (talk) 15:23, 1 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I would like to apply for this right to prevent anyone overwriting files without any justification. SpinnerLaserzthe2nd (talk) 14:34, 11 May 2023 (UTC) SpinnerLaserzthe2ndReply[reply]
@SpinnerLaserzthe2nd: How would the filemover permission help you do that? —‍Mdaniels5757 (talk • contribs) 16:53, 21 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@SpinnerLaserzthe2nd, I remember a lot of your requests were declined? Or am I wrong? Please an answer, thanks. - Richardkiwi (talk) (talk) 12:22, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Shkuru Afshar[edit]

I need filemoving access because sometimes, I miss spell some filenames and folders. Like changing file:Waverly Council Chambers.jpg to "Waverley Council Chambers.jpg" or I need to edit folder names like "Category:Centennial Park, Woollahra Gate from Oxford Street" to "Category:Centennial Park, Woollahra Gates from Oxford Street" and Category:The Offerings of War and Peace to "Category:The Offerings of War and Peace statues".

I also think, I should change the name of File:Unveiled by The Honourable Peter Collins M.P. NSW Minister of the Arts on 22 December 1988-Commissioned by the AMP Society-Portrait.jpg as it looks too long with too much information for a filename and I should change it to Bird Totem.

Sometime, I see pictures with wrong filename that need to be edited.

There is also pictures of an unknown sculpture. As soon as I find its name, I will change the name of the folder and files.

Also, sometimes, I need to change the name of a file for a better filename.

Category:St Matthias Anglican Church, Centennial Park should be changed to Category:St Matthias Anglican Church, Paddington NSW because St Matthias Anglican Church is located in Paddinton suburb.

I would like to be considered for using the right to fix the file name according to Commons renaming policy. I create/upload a number of files and sometimes I make an error in the spelling of the file name. I am aware of the Commons renaming policy and will abide by the terms of the policy.
