Alex Neman[edit]

I need to be autopatrolled because I still want to transfer files from Flickr to Wikimedia Commons as Flickr2Commons is not working days ago. Thank you. Alex Neman (talk) 04:38, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
  •  Not done - indef block on enwiki for socking and block evasion is too recent. ~riley (talk) 22:30, 26 March 2020 (UTC)


Trusted user from huwiki, thousands of useful edits locally. Don't need to be patrolled. Thanks in advance! Bencemac (talk) 19:17, 28 March 2020 (UTC)


I have a good number of good images in my account so far and I have seamless editing at this time. Thank you. --Adámoz (talk) 15:10, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This user was blocked for promoting articles to good article without due process and consensus. He's also under ArbCom's remedy, which mandates his contributions to be reviewed by an autopatrolled user. I do not think Adámoz is trusted enough for autopatrol. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:20, 30 March 2020 (UTC)
This is not a wikipedia, this is a sister project, if you don't know. --Adámoz (talk) 11:36, 30 March 2020 (UTC)
Indeed, I don't judge people by their activities on another wiki when reviewing RFR. But I would prefer for you to become more active. Autopatrol IMO is too early for you right now. Perhaps return after 2 weeks of consistent activity. Thanks, pandakekok9 11:41, 30 March 2020 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per Martin. Adámoz is lacking competence. — Draceane talkcontrib. 11:54, 30 March 2020 (UTC) (It's not Wikipedia, but issues from other Wikimedia sites should be taken in concern.)
I do see your point, but competence in a wiki is not always the same as others, just as how competence is different for one skill to another. I am competent in fighting obvious vandalism, but I am not competent in creating animations, for example. In a media repository like Commons, we only require sufficient competence in either basic photography or curating media to participate. Adámoz seems to be competent in both. pandakekok9 12:05, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

Just got patroller right, and assumed that rollbacker would be bundled with it. I am a long time admin on Enwiki, and contributor here, and in my increasing work here around structured data: I am finding more and more situations where I need to rollback multiple edits on an image. Thank you. Sadads (talk) 21:35, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
✓ Done. Thanks for helping! --Achim (talk) 21:55, 25 March 2020 (UTC)


I would like to have rollback privileges, so that in the future I make some mistakes like this, I can revert them more quickly. It would also be a useful addition in my countervandalism efforts. I was a former rollbacker, so I think I can be trusted with this tool. Thank you. pandakekok9 07:13, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
✓ Granted. Ahmadtalk 00:13, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

This username along with my AWB account, User:Tippopotamus, has numerous edits. I am going through Sanborn maps and noticed that some have wrong names, like at Category:Sanborn Fire Insurance Map from Neveda City, Neveda County, California and rather than listing all 44 files for renaming from Neveda to Nevada, it would help me. Thank you. Ricky81682 (talk) 19:25, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Do you still need the right after I have mass renamed those files? --Didym (talk) 20:08, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
No, not really. There may be other instances but if requests are fine, that's easier. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 20:48, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

Hi i work at Archives New Zealand and have encouraged my colleagues to upload to Commons but have noticed some meaningless file names have been added as titles. I plan to correct these to more useful titles. Have had some help from another wiki editor @Billinghurst: but not sure how many more will come up. They are new to editing so mistakes may happen. Example of item i would change to Digitised (1893) NZ Women Suffrage Petition Roll - Sheet 5 - Region: Sanson MagicPie97 (talk) 03:20, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
