Any particular reason why? Majora (talk) 01:08, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
Majora, If I'm patrons, I will not just download the file at WiKimedia Commons. And I will act as a patrol and fight against the vandals. CalalC99 (talk) 10:51, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
 Not done Too many recent issues on your talk page. --Didym (talk) 21:13, 15 September 2018 (UTC)


I'm rollbacker and pending changes reviewer on English wikipedia (and similar roles on Polish and simple en wikipedia) and I want to help with patrolling changes on Commons. Thank you. Zabshk (talk) 20:40, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
 Not done Only 5 edits on Commons (not counting POTY votes). --Didym (talk) 21:17, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
Because there are mostly good edits, not vandalism to revert. As you can see from my logs in other wikis, I'm almost only reverting vandalisms and reviewing changes ([ en wiki - automated edits around 92.2%) and because I see a lot of good edits here instead of vandalisms, I don't have almost any edits. Zabshk (talk) 21:31, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
Patrolling on Commons also has to do with copyright patrol. Something you have shown zero skill in so far. Commons is totally different from encyclopedic patrolling. We have a completely different mission and goal here. If you want the patroller right you actually have to show that you will be able to contribute to our mission. --Majora (talk) 22:24, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question @EVandRailway: can you please (reverse) translate to English what is currently inscribed in Commons:File renaming/ja #FR2 and FR3? You likely misunderstand what does the true Criterion 3 mean. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 16:12, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

(simply) FR2…Ambiguous meaning, FR3…Incorrect name
ex) FR2 JAPAN.png→Flag of Japan.png, FR3 Flag of Japon.png→Flag of Japan.png--EVandRailway (talk) 23:16, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
@EVandRailway: which name would be good for what is now file:Japon Akihabara1.jpg? Which criterion to use for renaming? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:05, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
english"Japan"=french"Japon" (Criteria to decline#2)--EVandRailway (talk) 11:05, 23 August 2018 (UTC)


I hope to become a filemover. Because there are a lots of photos, like File:新竹市文化古蹟 0155.jpgFile:新竹市文化古蹟0048.jpgFile:新竹市文化古蹟0060.jpg (their names are "cultural heritage monument no. xx" in English), named in Chinese should be renamed (only broad location or inappropriate for specific content). And it seems to me that we need more filemovers who understand Chinese to help us deal with those photo incorrectly named in Chinese. 祥龍 (talk) 14:22, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Of course you can become filemover. Just a question: A file from the above link is called File:敘利亞騎士堡8694.jpg. How do you want to rename it? Maybe in file «敘利亞騎士堡8694 - Appearance of the Syrian Knights Castle - シリア騎士城の外観 - सीरियाई नाइट्स कैसल की उपस्थिति»? Files with Chinese filenames can be used in wiki projects. Much more helpful is the file description in several languages. Also the image search on commons follows the description. The file name is secondary. Hystrix (talk) 17:38, 2 September 2018 (UTC)
The link was just an example, not all photos uploaded by User:林高志 in the link should be renamed. File:敘利亞騎士堡8694.jpg is not one of those photos I want to rename. Photos like File:新竹市文化古蹟 0155.jpgFile:新竹市文化古蹟0048.jpgFile:新竹市文化古蹟0060.jpg (Chinese chacters in their names mean "cultural heritage monument in Hsinchu City" in English) uploaded by User:林高志 are those ones need to be renamed. The former example seems not good, so I deleted the link in the reason and put some photos need to be renamed.--祥龍 (talk) 22:41, 2 September 2018 (UTC)


I am aware my edit count is very low. But I am familiar with basic policies of Commons:File renaming. Till now, I have requested several moves (all accepted). If granted, I will work at Category:Media requiring renaming, with only the cases that I am 100% confident with. With time, my understanding will increase, and hence my number of moves will increase too. I am a native speaker of w:en:Marathi language, and I have near native fluency in Hindi, and English languages.
Althouh it doesnt matter here, and policies are completely different; I am a w:en:WP:page mover on enwiki, and I have carried out around 300 discussed moves, and around 200 technical/uncontroversial moves, none of which have been objected. I hope I can work the same on commons too. Regards, —usernamekiran(talk) 08:09, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
 Not done – As far as I can tell, you've only filed three rename requests in your time here. Combined with the fact that you have only about 325 edits, and the local experience is simply not sufficient to grant the filemover right right now. It's a great sign that you're trusted with the page mover right on enwiki, but file renaming on Commons is very, very different, as you're already aware. It's not an issue of trust, but rather one of familiarity with local policies. I thank you for your offer to help, and welcome you to contact me personally to revisit after you've gained some more experience. Sorry, –Juliancolton | Talk 17:19, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
@Juliancolton: Thank you for the friendly response. It is very appreciated. I just have one doubt/question: how should I show the understanding of renaming policy in the future? And on a side note, hitting ctrl+f on my contrib history (500 edits per page), shows seven requests for different files :p

First reason is to fix my errors, as nobody is perfect. I can help to reduce existing backlog as well. Thank you. Jklamo (talk) 10:42, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
