He has ever uploaded 1000+ files, clean talkpage and an admin on jawiki. I think his edits don't need our patrol. Thank you. Darklanlan (talk) 12:29, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Not happy with the username, tho. Otherwise full support. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 23:22, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment That's a fictitious organization, but only I'm concerned too. Darklanlan (talk) 01:40, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support Looks fine to me. For me, the name "東京特許許可局" (pronounced "Tokyo tokkyo kyoka-kyoku") brings the funny sound of its pronunciation to mind - it is in fact a well-known tongue twister in Japanese, so when I look at it, I don't think of impersonation at all. [1] I realize usernames have caused controversies in a few RFAs, but we are talking about autopatrol here - it is a passive right that can be revoked fairly easily if problems arise. A note about the name on the user page would be preferable to have, though. whym (talk) 08:42, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Trustworthy user with nearly a year on Commons and 2000+ edits with no problems (the few deletions on his talk are from svg replacements and one low quality image; no copyright issues). He's also a Wikipedian in Residence. I don't see any need for patrolling his contributions. Thank you. lNeverCry 02:36, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Ad crumenam[edit]

Though I have made only a few edits and uploads in Commons, I'm well versed in the copyright and image deletion policies, thanks to my work as an editor in the Spanish Wikipedia. Despite being an autopatrolled user there is not a reason good enough by itself to have the flag I´m requesting, it would help me a great deal with my work in Commons, primarily as a pictures uploader (saving patrollers their time, so that they can focus on other tasks). In case I'm deemed to be unprepared to acquire such a big responsibility, any recommendations to improve my edits/file uploads will be much appreciated.--Ad crumenam (talk) 13:21, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose 10 edits on Commons isn't enough to be autopatrolled. That just isn't enough experience to show that you're trustworthy here on Commons. It shouldn't take more than a few weeks to do 500+ edits here and give admins something to judge your readiness by. lNeverCry 17:44, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

I'm active user in commons, OTRS member, sysop on WP:AR and have a responsible for follow-up files in Ar-Graphics Lab, sometimes I find a misleading or errors in file names especially files that translated by members in Ar-Graphics lab, I also want to correct files name in Arabic, I have a good experience about which files should be renamed or not, Thank you --Alaa Najjar :)..! 17:47, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support Autopatrolled here, sysop on with 36k edits, OTRS member, and autoreviewer on, so obviously trustworthy and experienced. We can always use filemovers who're fluent in languages like Arabic, which Google Translate tends to mangle. lNeverCry 17:54, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
