There are a bunch of Bengali ebook uploaded in commons with long, machine generated filenames on Category:Books_in_Bengali. I want to rename these files to their original title (which is more meaningful) and use them for project. Thank you. Tarunno (talk) 15:43, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question:Why has your bot account TarunnoBot been blocked indef on en:wp? --Achim (talk) 16:50, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Don't know the actual reason for block with a one bot edit. But user is a trusted user of Bengali Wikimedia Community. Jayantanth (talk) 17:29, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
@Achim55: There was a misunderstanding. I explained it, appealed for an unblock and left it to better judgement of admin. Discussion log can be found here. Tarunno (talk) 18:59, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
The enwiki block issue is cleared up, was concern that this wasn't actually a bot with a bot name - block has been lifted on enwiki. — xaosflux Talk 00:31, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
The user has 58 edits on commons. Concerned. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:19, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
@Steinsplitter: Can you please elaborate your concerns? May be I can help you to eleminate those. Thanks. -Tarunno (talk) 19:48, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
What Steinsplitter is silently saying is that less than 100 edits on commons may not be sufficient to grant this right. Personally, I won't assign permissions like file mover to users with less than 500 edits here. Wikicology (talk) 17:41, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
✓ Done @Tarunno: Since you've got a specific plan for using this right, I've made you autopatrolled and a filemover. Be careful, and if you mess something up, let me know. Get that edit count up to something respectable now. Face-wink.svg INeverCry 07:02, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
