I contribute with photography on Montevideo topics and will be doing more so in the next months and sometimes by mistake, I upload to a wrong destination name mistake and need to set it right by myself. Thank you. Hoverfish (talk) 16:52, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
Your edit count is a bit low yet (some 600 edits ...) axpdeHello! 17:38, 5 December 2010 (UTC)


I would like filemover permission so that I can correct poorly-chosen names on my own uploads. Thank you. —Dominus (talk) 18:37, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Will do, thanks. —Dominus (talk) 03:03, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Kiran Gopi[edit]

As part of cleanup project in ml wiki we recently moved more than 2000 files into commons, unfortunately most of the file name is in ml language. There are more than 1000 files need to be renamed. Thank you. Kiran Gopi (talk) 02:07, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
 Not done Our file renaming policy does not permit renames just to change language (we are a multilingual project). Anyone applying for filemover rights should at least be already familiar with file renaming policy. Instead please concentrate on making sure there are as many translations as possible in the information template of each of your uploads. Thanks for your contribution transferring images. --99of9 (talk) 02:21, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Kiran Gopi & Sreejith is doing a major job with the file renaming, he can help the project by changing the known indic language file name to English, so that all the wikipedians can understand the file (result of picture search) and stich to different same article can be in many indian languages...(Apologize if i am not allowed to post here) Kalarickan | My Interactions 08:04, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The way to make a file understandable is not to change the file name, but to add descriptions in as many languages as possible (e.g. English). The rules prohibit renaming to change the language a filename is in.--99of9 (talk) 09:49, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment So true. I have left a note on Kalarickan's talk page to make him understand the facts. Please don't read his comment as a statement from the right requester. --Sreejith K (talk) 13:16, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
Symbol unsupport vote.svg I withdraw my comment as file renaming rights is not necessary to rename only ml language files and commons is a multilingual projects and this request makes no scope..and really disagree with second point by sreejith (....Please don't.....) as its properly signed by me- Kalarickan | My Interactions 15:21, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

Maps & Lucy[edit]

I have been involved in many types of cleaning, tidying and organizing on the cCommons such as deletions, categorising and renaming. This right would make my work easier and would improve the Commons' effectiveness. Thank you. Maps & Lucy (talk) 14:56, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Help in cleaning up I am trusted in other Wiki's, this would be easier that leaving the "rename" template on them, save work on your guys parts. Thank you. Tofutwitch11 (talk) 23:22, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Chuck Marean[edit]

Some files I uploaded I want to rename so they look better, so I want to be a Filemover and be told how rename files. The reason I want to move the files is all the letters are upper case and I notice that is unlike the way most files are named. I named them that way because I copied and pasted from an ocr. I requested that they be moved. I was hoping they would be moved soon. Thank you. -- Chucky 23:07Z3Jan2011 23:07, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, some 200 edits are not enough, please use {{rename}} axpdeHello! 00:02, 4 January 2011 (UTC)[edit]

I'm requesting the filemover right. Uploaded files have been flagged up to me (en-wp) as being mis-identifed at source with a request for re-naming. Only one so far, but more may be forthcoming. Please see the discussion at [1]. I am an admin on en-wp with a large image upload history and would like to maintain these without the need to find and fill out triplicate forms. Thank you. 22:13, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
Considering that you are almost inactive on Commons, using {{rename|new name.jpg|reason for new name}} might be better. --Leyo 00:19, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
OK, I'll jump through the necessary hoops, ho-hum :)


Hi :). I am interested in getting the filemover right to correct file names which are not very appropriate for the name and do not follow guidelines - such as File:0010ydb0.jpg and other images that pop up from time to time. I have mainly been here as an uploaded from appropriately licensed media from enwiki and copied them to here. I like it here so I am interested in becoming more active and file mover sounds like one of the areas I can see myself doing. I have discussed some areas of the File name policy with other users on the #wikimedia-commons IRC channel and feel like I have a good idea of which titles are appropriate are which are not. Thank you. Addihockey10 (talk) 22:20, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
 Not done because you are not experienced enough and because you filled this request at the wrong place of the page. abf «Cabale!» 06:08, 23 January 2011 (UTC)


I would like to have file mover right especially to fix meaningless file names as well as my own occasional errors. I have done quite a bit of work on pictures related to nuclear weapons testing (uploads, categorization, renaming requests, expansion of descriptions) with more contributions in the pipeline. I'd like to make commons a really efficient, complete and useful source for anyone looking for illustrations on this topic. I am familiar with the guidelines and this right would allow me to work faster and remove part of the burden from other contributors. Thank you. Bomazi (talk) 19:51, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
 not now I can sadly not see the required experience with Commons. Please re-apply later. abf «Cabale!» 07:01, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Florian Hurlbrink[edit]

Similar reason like the one of Beyond my Ken). It will be useful to rename my own files (remove some factual mistakes in file names, ...). I have read the guidelines. Thank you. Florian Hurlbrink (talk) 14:36, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
You have uploaded less than 76 files to the Commons, making around 690 edits (as for now) since April 2006. Do you think that the tools would be useful for your work at the Commons? What would you like to use them for if not for renaming your files, which are not that many? I am looking forward to hearing your answer. Thanks, odder (talk) 10:07, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
 Not done per lack of response. --Màñü飆¹5 talk 20:19, 9 March 2011 (UTC)


reason for requesting the right - realised this existed when I got a message on top of my wachlist on today - and have since been granted file mover rights there. Seems like a good tool to have handy. Thank you. AroundTheGlobe (talk) 15:00, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
 Not done - Not enough experience in regards to request file moves, etc... please try back later. Cheers, Tiptoety talk 02:23, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Hoangquan hientrang[edit]

I would like to request the file mover rights. I have contributed many images to Commons and I know the Commons policies and guidelines. I have also found that some images I met are wrong name or have the same name with the ones on Wikipdia(including my images). I wish to help the Commons with this problem Thank you.

Since a few I already have experience on the English Wikipedia with file-moving-rights and doing this constantly. I would like to help more on commons... Thank you. Mabdul (talk) 07:35, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Oh forget to say: the filemover rights are only accessible (in the English Wikipedia) since a few weeks and I have them since the 12th March Mabdul (talk) 07:41, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation and comment. However, I feel that perhaps you shouldn't be so quick to dismiss my request based solely on my edit count at commons. Though I may have just ~200 edits here, I've been an editor (on & off) for > 7 years and am very familiar with guidelines on EN WP as well as commons. I have just shy of 1000 edits across the various wikis & believe that my record shows that I can be trusted. I'm not looking to turn into a file moving maniac & would only do so for the appropriate reasons. Would you please reconsider granting file mover permission? Thanks! Earthsound (talk) 17:32, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Well, in en.wp you also don't have many edits in files. I do saw your contributions in commons and and they are fine, but i don't feel that comfortable to give you the right with that number of edits in files. I request the opinion of another admin here. Béria Lima msg 17:50, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Though I see, your account was created a long time ago, but I don't see enough edits (on both (which has only 7 edits in file namespace so far) and Commons) to prove that you are experienced enough to use those tools. — [ Tanvir | Talk ] 18:00, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Thank you both for your replies. I will defer until later. :) May I ask what a typical rule of thumb prerequisite is for file edits before I should request permissions again? Thanks. Earthsound (talk) 18:55, 23 March 2011 (UTC)


I would like to rename some files of 16th century portraits here on Commons where the sitters have been wrongly labeled due to old, outdated identification information Thank you. Feuerrabe (talk) 22:02, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Joe Gazz84[edit]

I am coming across lots of images as I edit pages on the ENWP, that are incorrectly named. I have the 'filemover' right on ENWP, and wish to have it here to fix these mistakes globally. I am retiring from the ENWP, but wish to offer help here as well. Thank you for considering this request, in hopes that it will be fulfilled. Joe Gazz84 (talk) 19:45, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
 Not done Your are too inactive in this project (only 23 edits in total so far). Please use {{rename}} for now, and come back after some time with more edits. Thanks for your efforts. :) — [ Tanvir | Talk ] 11:46, 31 March 2011 (UTC)


Requesting the file mover right so as I can rename/move unidentified animal files to correct names (and categories), I have in the past assisted other users in identifying animals on commons, I have started on the unidentified crocodiles category and when finished with those will move onto mammals. I have file mover rights on english wikipedia and am familiar with the guidelines here on commons. Thank you. ZooPro 14:19, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
Additional request on my talk page: I am unsure if the 150 edits are a bit low. I would like another admin to decide in this case. --Leyo 13:29, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
 Not done I aggree with you, Leyo. Please use {{rename}} instead, ZooPro. axpdeHello! 19:30, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
How many edits will you require to be satisfied? I have used the rename tag and all of them have been accepted. ZooPro 02:22, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Re-requesting rights now have 220+ edits and all my rename requests have been granted. ZooPro 14:46, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Well, there is no certain amount of edits, speaking for myself I usually expect at least 1500 to 2000 edits. axpdeHello! 20:16, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
Its file move not a request for adminship!! None the less, the true lack of good faith on commons is suprising given some of the good contributers on here. I will stop with my efforts in identifying animals for a few months as this is not an environment I wish to work in at the moment. Best of luck ZooPro 13:15, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
What do you expect to provoke with your diatribe? I said it's my standard, but I'm not sure whether any other admin will decide different looking at your performance here ... axpdeHello! 14:41, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
 Not done , please wait a moment and gain some experience here at the Commons. I suggest you try again with at least 1500 edits. Thank you! odder (talk) 08:32, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Ivanov id[edit]

I am active in the Bulgarian and Russian Wikipedia. I often categorize files in Commons and I would like to receive a File mover status to contribute more effectively here. I'm a Patroller in the Bulgarian Wikipedia. Thanks for your attention, Иван (talk) 12:44, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
It's not a good start to place your request at the wrong place ... axpdeHello! 20:05, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Oh, it was an accident. I never rename files, when I'm not sure. Plus, there is a rename log and explanation. Just see the mess with Category:Novo Selo Range, Category:Novo Selo Municipality, Bulgaria and so on, on the theme of "Novo Selo" in Bulgaria. It's very difficult and boring to me to explain and use {{rename}} template, instead of rename and precategorize these files by myself and propose for deletion the excess cats. And "Novo Selo" is not the only mess about Bulgaria in Commons. Of course, I'm also going to rename files after well grounded reasons by other users, if I get the status. Иван (talk) 07:56, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Could I please, receive the status, I contribute seriously to Commons and Wikipedia, I'm not a kid. Иван (talk) 09:38, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Well, there is no certain amount of edits, speaking for myself I usually expect at least 1500 to 2000 edits. axpdeHello! 20:16, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
I believe the quality of the contributions is more important, than the plain edit conut. I think all my contributions are valuable and I'm sure I could contribute better if I have the status. I see lot of unproperly named and organized files and categories and I want to organize them in a better way. Иван (talk) 07:20, 4 April 2011 (UTC)


I would like to request File Mover rights on Commons. I work with media files a lot, and have made many contributions. I am also a file mover on Wikipedia. Thank you. InverseHypercube (talk) 00:36, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
 Not done ~570 edits do not really show how well are you prepared for your work at the Commons. I agree to the above statement by axpde (talk · contribs) — please gain some experience (e.g. 1500 edits) and then try asking for the filemover rights again. Thank you! odder (talk) 08:35, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I understand. However, note that I have 1500+ edits on Wikipedia. InverseHypercube (talk) 21:55, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Ancient Apparition[edit]

I'm a file mover on the English Wikipedia, I've got a good knowledge of file copyright and would like to help here on Commons. I'll probably get berated for my low edit count here, but I've got the experience at the English Wikipedia and I have read and know the File renaming guidelines on enwiki which is basically a copy of the Commons version with irrelevant portions removed. Ancient Apparition (talk) 01:41, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
 Not done too few edits, please use {{rename}} instead axpdeHello! 12:46, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
I know all the policies, declining on the basis of edit count without looking to see if the user's knowledge of the policies attached to the right is quite ridiculous. I've got the knowledge and experience required, yet all the admins active here seem to believe that edit count is the best and primary deciding factor on who gets what rights, this is not a personal attack on any such admin but rather the fallacies which seem to have developed over the years.

Das steinerne Herz[edit]

If it's possible I would like to receive a file mover right. Occasionally I met with incorrect file names, so may be I could help to make Commons a little better. Thank you. Das steinerne Herz (talk) 04:06, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
Personally I'd like to see at least 1500 to 2000 edits on commons, so yet only "Autopatrolled". Please use {{rename}} when occasionally finding incorrect file names, thank you. axpdeHello! 07:09, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
Ok! Thanks! --Das steinerne Herz (talk) 16:31, 7 May 2011 (UTC)


I have uploaded in the last few years some 280 files and made ​​a total of about 870 file and category editing. I also often work in existing image files or categories, or add existing Commons files in the German language Wikipedia and several other language Wikipedias - and it happens that a renaming would be better. Thank you. Jocian (talk) 19:21, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Hello, did you use the {{Rename}} template in the past, and if so, could you link to some requests you made? If not, could you be more precise about the kind of renames you plan to do? --Dereckson (talk) 22:46, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Yep, I have already used {{Rename}} template, such as here + here + here + here + here. --Jocian (talk) 21:24, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
Good afternoon, your renames show you've a willingness to get full descriptive titles, where the Commons rename policy tries to seek the balance between descriptive titles and image name stability, especially important since the InstantCommons activation, without notification or update by bot service on external wikis.
For example, your last rename request were denied, as the file were already meaningful.
I suggest you continue to use the {{Rename}} template a little bit, to become more habituated to the delicate equilibrium of the Commons rename practices. --Dereckson (talk) 16:38, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
Before my last request I asked to rename this file here. The reason was the division of the 2-man image by the de.WP photo shop (requested by me). To my surprise, there is another partition proposal was replenished. I think that almost identical pictures have same file names... and a subsequent application provided for the renaming.
Anyway, thanks for the insight into the higher spheres of existence of the Commons-Admins. Men gør den opgave alene! Thank you and goodbye, --Jocian (talk) 17:47, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Ruud Koot[edit]

I request the filemover right to be able to rename some of my (sometimes accidentally incorrectly named) uploads. I'm an admin at the English-language Wikipedia.) Thank you. —Ruud 11:26, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
 Not done you only have 100 edits on commons, please use {{rename}}. Experience on :w:en: is ok but policies may be different ... axpdeHello! 20:03, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
I have made more edits under the account User:R. Koot. Approximately what amount of edits am I expect to make here before it can be assumed that I have read and understood the renaming guideline? As I indicated, I primarily intend this to fix my own mistakes, not exactly rocket science. —Ruud 20:48, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
We give rights to active participants of Wikimedia Commons. You are obviously not an active participant at this project. Please use {{rename}} as already said above. (or in your native language) We kennen rechten toe aan actieve gebruikers van Wikimedia Commons. Je bent duidelijk niet een actieve deelnemer aan dit project. Gebruik alsjeblieft {{rename}} zoals hierboven reeds werd opgemerkt. Jcb (talk) 22:24, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
I might not be highly active, but I certainly am an active participant? I understand you need some assurance the editors requesting permission to rename files won't screw up, but given that I'm both a trusted editor on another project and have made a decent number of contributions to this project over the years, I'm somewhat surprised anyone could doubt my ability not to? —Ruud 23:06, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
Dear Ruud Koot, do you understand what you're writing? Do you real mean than your admin status on en. means you should be trusted on every Wikimedia project? You're admin on en., meaning you're trusted on en. you don't have a laissez-passer giving you automatically the trusted status on other projects.
We only know you through two accounts with 72 and 105 contributions in 5 years... how could we evaluate your knowledge on Commons. policies?
Do you also realize than your argumentation is eroding your reservoir of social trust? --Dereckson (talk) 11:53, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Could you make an example, please? I'm trying to figure out your experience with {{Rename}}.--Trixt (talk) 09:23, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
You can see the series of images about Demi Lovato

Clearly those are misleading name which don't describe the exact content

Or my uploaded images File:JonasBrothers2009WATP_2.jpg must become JonasBrothers2009WATF_2.jpg because WATF is "We are the future"--Hoangquan hientrang (talk) 11:52, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Well, i look his contributions, and saw the images listed here. All images were copyvio (the one from Flickr are clear LL) and his was a bit more complex LL case. If a user can't see that an image is a clear copyvio violation, i don't believe he should have a flag like that, so i'm closing as  Not done .

I have uploaded a file under an incorrect name before on Wikipedia and requested it to be renamed. Unfortunately the same has now happened here with File:100 7052.jpg. I have built up quite an experience of uploading mainly freely licenced images during my time here but also fair use images on Wikipedia and think it could reduce the burden I could have on other users if I can fix my mistakes myself.

I am a Wikigraphist with Graphic Lab (en) and recently requested a file rename for one of my images. In the process, I've noticed that there seems to be a backlog in the "Media requiring renaming" category. I'd like filemover rights in order to spend some time clearing it. Thanks! MissMJ (talk) 21:57, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
You have just 77 edits here on Commons — I am not sure if you're experienced enough at this very project and if you understand the renaming guideline. Please get somehow more active here and ask for the rights again in a months' time.  Not done . Regards, odder (talk) 22:20, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
I understand that using the number of edits as a yardstick for gauging competence is a simple enough standard that works in most cases, but I don't believe it's representative in this case. Although I haven't been active on a frequent enough basis in Commons to rack up the vast number of edits that would "prove" my experience with the project, I can assure you I have no issue understanding the renaming guidelines; quite frankly, they're not rocket science. I'm not after anything nefarious here, I'd just like the "Media requiring renaming" category cleared. Whether I do it, or someone else with filemover rights gets on it, I'm fine with it either way. I'm just saying that I have some time on my hands and a head on my shoulders that I'm perfectly capable of using. ;) MissMJ (talk) 00:24, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
I've moved the file you requested. odder is right that we do need a bit more evidence before we can evaluate whether this user-permission is suitable for someone with so few contributions. Obviously I mean no prejudice against you. In the mean time, if you do have time on your hands, there are many many jobs that can be done in Commons without additional permissions. Thanks for helping out. --99of9 (talk) 01:22, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello, I'm requesting file mover rights so I can help out with the file renaming work. I have been a file mover before on en.wikipedia, but there were not that many move requests (actually, in 3 days I saw none) and I'd like to help out on commons. I'm also in the countervandalism file upload channel, so I can patrol any uploaded files which require renaming. Thank you. TBloemink (talk) 18:39, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

I come across files that need renaming with this and would like to be able to file move as needed.

Dan Pelleg[edit]

This concerns my specific request to rename 22 images of alphabetic glyphs, which hasn't received any reaction for about three weeks now. Since the relevant discussion resulted in a majority favouring the renaming and no administrator or file mover has contested this so far, it might just seem too tedious a task for whoever happened to check out the request until now, in which case I'd be happy to do the renaming.

I have now uploaded over 140 different historical images. However, some of the images that were uploaded from the government and some articles that were erroneously labeled need to be amended. As a keen uploader of images and as a prolific Wikipedia editor since early 2010, I would like to become a File mover so that I can change names of files that deserve more specification and clarity. Some photos from the US Department of Defense are badly named, such as the one File:DF-SC-88-01613.jpg or File:DF-SC-83-02204.jpg or File:DF-SC-83-02218.jpg and would like to have the right to change more of these names, thanks!)

I am requesting the right to move and rename files on Commons (File Mover). There are many files on here which need renaming, either as requested by other users, or according to the 7 Counts on Commons:File Renaming. I would like to be a part of that process and further my contributions here on Commons. I have thoroughly read Commons:File Renaming, and understand it's regulations. I promise to refrain from controversial or political renames, and would accept any punishment for violating the right for personal or political gain. Thank you. Fry1989 eh? 23:55, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
  • I am concerned by the amount of controversy that you are involved in, so I'm glad you've added your promise. But this application still probably deserves some discussion. Others? --99of9 (talk) 00:16, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I understand my past disputes have become controversial, but i would like to over-come that. I will accept any views expressed here. Fry1989 eh? 00:36, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I've declined a unbelievable number of your requests, so I won't formally mark this as not done, but I would be strongly opposed to this right being granted. You have shown, at best, a rather limited understanding of the restrictiveness of the guidelines. Courcelles (talk) 04:18, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Courcelles and I have disagreed on several nominations, but he has agreed with me on alot more of them than not. However, on those which I have disagreed with him on, I have been able to show that my rename nominations meet one or several of the 7 counts on Commons:File Renaming, and other Admins have often agreed with me, over-ruling him. There are infact a couple files I can show which match atleast 2 of the 7 reasons for renaming, and despite that, Courcelles has denied my nominations (this would show that I infact have a far better understanding than Courcelles would like to imply). I am willing to respect that however, and not interfere with files which he and I have disagreed with in the past.
There is also the problem of Courcelles' self-contradictory acceptions and denials of renaming files. As an example, he renamed File:Coat of arms of the Marquess of Ely.svg from "File:Marquess of Ely COA.svg". However, he denied to rename File:Marquess of Cholmondeley COA.svg to a similar naming format. Both these files were nominated by me, using the same reasoning, and same new name to be moved to. However, he accepted one (infact more than one, he has renamed several files by the user who uploaded the two I mentioned above), and then roughly two hours later, denies the other saying that "no valid reason was stated". If he can contradict himself within only a few short hours, than with all respect, I do not think he has the right to object to my receiving the File Mover right. Fry1989 eh? 04:27, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I have invested two years into Wikipedia and Commons, far too much time to throw it all away and do something stupid to get banned. I have nothing to gain from using this ability maliciously. Now, I can already get the feeling it will probably be a no, and I'm fine with that. I'll just ask in a few months when things have changed. But I would like an answer of some sort. It doesn't take 3 days to answer other people here who have asked for rights. Fry1989 eh? 01:18, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

I am requesting the right to move the name of files, specifically those that are images of gastropods. I work a lot on English Wikipedia in WikiProject Gastropods, and currently a lot of snail-shell images have been uploaded to Commons, and are still being uploaded to Commons. It happens in the scientific literature, that over the years the scientific name (Latin name) of species revised and then the older name is no longer good (it becomes a synonym). In those cases the name of the file needs to be changed so that the file name corresponds with the current scientific nomenclature, otherwise it is misleading. Also occasionally shells or snails/slugs are mis-identified due to errors, and those images need to be given the correct name. I am not very experienced on Commons, but I have a very good track record on English Wikipedia. Thank you. Invertzoo (talk) 12:33, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

She (not he) just told you explicitly why she needs this right. Giving her the right will improve the quality of image file names and correct the misidentified images. What does the quantity of edits have to do with this? Invertzoo is a highly experienced user and has worked with images for many years. She's also an expert, and this site needs experts to fix erroneous file names. Since when is quantity more valuable than quality? Viriditas (talk) 10:09, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
Invertzoo (she) has a vast amount of edits at Wikipedia, and is very familiar with Wikicommons. Using filemover rights to move files to appropriate names is well within her ability. Plus, consideration over issuing this right is not so much about ability, but more about trust, and trust her you can, indeed. Best, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 12:16, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
Certainly not very familiar with only 50 edits I would say. I'm sure trust is not an issue but this is about rights here not elsewhere. --Herby talk thyme 12:28, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
Herby, how will having more than 50 edits here change the fact that this expert on gastropods wants to simply fix erroneous file names? Viriditas (talk) 10:12, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
I understand. But, looking at the documentation, the right is pretty sinchy. She's in charge of a massive museum, so her cranial area is gigantic. Would you consider giving her the right, and if she does something horrible, revoke at once, and trout her back to the stone age? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 12:34, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
I am sorry that I don't seem like an obvious candidate for this. The snail image files would benefit from having the correct names, and being able to use the "move" function would save other people the effort of having to do it themselves on my request. But I do understand if you guys feel that currently I am too inexperienced here on Commons. I can continue to use the "rename" template, and reapply when I have more edits here under my belt. Thanks, Invertzoo (talk) 21:10, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
 Not done Hi again Invertzoo. I took a look at your 50 edits, hoping to find lots of approved file {{rename}}s in there, so I could approve this application. But there were only 2, so I agree with some of the others that more renaming experience here will help. I also join those who certify how expert, trustworthy, and wiki-experienced you are, so I will be happy to grant you the rights when you have another 20 or so rename requests under your belt (and confirm that you have read the rules at COM:FR). --99of9 (talk) 09:06, 16 November 2011 (UTC)


Hi at all. I would like to have the right for file renaming to the correct form. I work on categories and files of Italy, mostly of art, archaeology, architecture, and historical images. Often I find files with wrong names (wrong identification, wrong location, wrong attribution, etc.), for example frescos of Herculaneum said from Pompeii, frescos in the Museum located in Pompeii, or paintings attributed to two different painter like these [7] and [8], where I have before to understand which one is wrong. I wish too to harmonize file names of the same art collection (e.g. the Farnese Collection; or the frescos collection of the Archaeological Museum in Naples), or to continue to harmonize unidentified old photographs, following the synthax rules giving by Dall'Orto. If you give me the permission, of course. Thank you very much. DenghiùComm (talk) 07:20, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment He requests the right because he has - as mentioned above - expertise in his working field. Since when on commons politics are more interesting than good work? Have a look in his over 60.000 contributions and show with links where he committed errors! Instead of going around blaming people that they care about their working fields and systemise them and correct errors. Because that is what he requested via renaming and what could have been easily done and would have done by everyone who had a glimpse about these working fields. Sorry for my frank words, but this discussion creates immense shame, already at the moment that Mathonius thought it is a good idea to comment.

My last comment. I am sorry, but I am not able with my basic level of english to tell you my thought; so I will do it in italian in the hope that perhaps somebody will translate it. Thank you.

Vorrei dire due parole visto che il signor Mathonius con il suo intervento ha creato un tale imbarazzo fra tutti, che dopo due settimane nessuno degli admin ha più il coraggio di dire un SI o un NO alla mia richiesta di file mover. Io non mi offendo se non ricevo questo piccolo potere. Sicuramente però trovo molto offensivo che una persona che non ho mai incontrato nel mio lavoro su Commons, e che non sa niente di quello che io ho fatto in tutti questi anni, abbia deciso che io sono un principiante che non conosce le più elementari linee guida di Commons e che dunque deve essere osteggiato. Trovo ammirevole che il signor Mathonius, che da pochi giorni (dal 10 settembre 2011) ha ottenuto questo stesso potere che ora io richiedo, abbia deciso di diventare il garante dell’ortodossia di Commons, diventando il crociato che salverà la Santa città di Gerusalemme-Commons dagli attacchi del cattivo saraceno-DenghiùComm. Se io sono tanto dannoso per Commons mi si dovrebbe spiegare come mai io sono autopatroller da diversi anni e tutte le mie richieste di rename e di cat move vengono regolarmente accolte ed eseguite. Io non ho bisogno di poteri in Commons. Già nel 2009 mi sono stati offerti poteri molto maggiori in Commons di questo piccolo file mover, poteri che io allora ho rifiutato di ricevere. Perché appunto a me non interessa avere dei poteri o di fare carriera in Commons (forse al signor Mathonius ?). Quello che mi interessa è di fare tranquillamente il mio lavoro sulle categorie ed i files dell’Italia, mettendo a disposizione di Commons le mie conoscenze storiche, archeologiche, artistiche, e geografiche (almeno finché Commons lo vorrà ancora). Se ho chiesto il potere di file mover questo è unicamente per abbreviare i tempi e per sollevare gli admin da un lavoro che potrei fare benissimo io direttamente. Nulla di più. Ma se questo piccolo potere non mi verrà accordato, quale è il problema? Io continuerò per altri 10 o 20 anni a fare il mio lavoro sulle categorie ed i files dell’Italia, e quando avrò bisogno di un rename o di un cat move lo richiederò agli admin come ho fatto fino ad oggi; e gli admin continueranno per i prossimi 10 o 20 anni ad accettare le mie richieste e ad eseguirle (naturalmente tutti meno che il signor Mathonius). Auguro a tutti un buon lavoro ! --DenghiùComm (talk) 08:39, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

To be clear, it has never been and it will never be my intention to offend anyone or to treat anyone in a shameful way. I respect you and your contributions. However, it's very important to understand and respect the guidelines and, in this discussion, you showed too little understanding of point six of COM:FR. My comment on 19 September 2011 is supposed to be purely informative. I wish someone would close this request soon and, perhaps needless to say, I would respect any decision whatsoever. Kind regards, Mathonius (talk) 04:19, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
    • For the sake of this project, although I really have to do a lot of RL-things: Rules are made to the benefit of this project and to serve the Commons:SCOPE and not to be followed in the strictest of all ways. In his working fields Denghiù asked for renames, which on the one hand provided more information and on the other followed guidelines, which have been elaborated by working in these fields, so they are more or less tacit and if mentioned at all then in Italian. Which might be difficult to understand if you have not worked in this field (we are talking about 19th century / early 20th century photographs of Italy). I found it somehow rude to decline the rename requests because harmonisation of file names serves us contributors, who try to systemise these files, and also every person who is looking for these photographs, because it can be very confusing if the title of a picture differs from the description. We are not talking about 100s of rename processes, but a handful every now and then.
    • To sum up, what Denghiù has written above: he just wants a decision, but in any case he will contribute with his knowledge to improve this project as he has done for years now.
    • To the sysops: Be bold! If he should commit errors or outright vandalism, you can hang me also. ;) Catfisheye (talk) 01:12, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

 Not done due the highly offensive comment against Mathonius. This time I will pass, but if you write any other comment like that in my watch, you will be blocked (and yes, I can read Italian.) Béria Lima msg 15:35, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

Can you explain me, please, where I was highly offensive against Mathonius ? Thank you very much. Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 14:43, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
To clarify: as a native Italian speaker, I don't think that DenghiùComm has been offensive, although he was clearly annoyed; so, no offence given, no offence taken. I think we can move on now. Nemo 18:04, 16 October 2011 (UTC)
The reason given for declining the right is invalid - and as Nemo stated and I agree - incorrect. So would somebody please be so nice and give him the rights or archive this request. If the latter please strike out Berias "decision". This should not be politics and this is no game. thx. grazie. muito obrigada. Catfisheye (talk) 14:48, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
Given the nature of the objection to Béria Lima {{Not done}}, it would be nice if an admin (perhaps Béria Lima?) would reply to the objection. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 10:38, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
I do not speak Italian, but Google Translate gives me "[Mathonius] decided to become the guarantor of orthodoxy of Commons, becoming the crusader who will save the Holy City of Jerusalem Commons from the attacks of ..." If this is a faithful translation, I agree with Beria that it is grossly incivil to call a good faith contributor a crusader, and warn you that if you call someone names again, you are will be blocked. --99of9 (talk) 09:13, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Thank you very much 99of9 for this information ! I don't knew that there was this possibility ! So I give now the full translastion of my text (made by Google; in the hope that it will be a faithful translation...!). I think that it is more correct than to give only a few part of it.

I would say two words seen that Mr. Mathonius with his intervention has created such an embarrassment of all, that after two weeks none of the admin has the courage to say a YES or NO to my request to file mover. I'm not offended if you do not get this little power. Surely, however, I find it very offensive that a person that I never met in my work on Commons, and who knows nothing of what I have done all these years, have decided I am a beginner who does not know the most basic guidelines of Commons and is to be opposed. I find it admirable that Mr. Mathonius, which since few days (from September 10, 2011) has obtained the same power that I require now, he decided to become the guarantor of orthodoxy of Commons, becoming the crusader who will save the Holy City of Jerusalem-Commons from the attacks of the bad Saracen-DenghiùComm. If I am so harmful to Commons, should it explain why I am autopatroller for several years and all my requests to rename and move cat are regularly accepted and executed. I do not need powers of Commons. Already in 2009 I have been offered much greater powers of this small file mover, powers that I have refused to receive. Precisely because I do not care to have the powers or to have a career in the Commons (Mr. Mathonius perhaps?). What interests me is to do my work quietly on the categories and files of Italy, making available to Commons my historical, archaeological, artistic, and geographical knowledge (at least until Commons will appreciate it). If I asked to receive the power to file mover, this is only to shorten the time and to raise the admins from a job that I could do very well directly. Nothing more. But if this little power will not granted to me, what is the problem? I will continue for another 10 or 20 years to do my job on the categories and files of Italy, and when I need a rename or move a cat I will require it to the admin as I have done so far, and the admins will continue to the next 10 or 20 years to accept my request and to execute them (all unless Mr. Mathonius of course). I wish you all a good job!

I rollbacked the archieving of this request. After all the interventions above, and before archiving this request, I request that an admin has responsibility to say a clear and finally word if I have right to become this filemover or not, and say a clear word for which reason I become this right or not. I don't accept that my request is archieved in silence, without explaining why, if my request was not given because I "was highly offensive" and some users say clearly that this is not true, and after my translation all people can see if I was really highly offensive or not. I will accept the final decision of admins without other comments, but I requires a clear word by them and the reasons for theyr decision. Or (after 3 month) a vote is needed about me? Thank you very much. Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 08:07, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

It seems to me that the first thing needed here is an apology from DenghiùComm. Commons is a multilingual project. The Google rendering into English seems offensive to some people, including me. The offense is not just the "crusader" comment, but the general tone of the remarks about Mathonius. So, whatever DenghiùComm's intentions were, he offended some of us. Under those circumstances, an apology is in order. It can be as simple as "I'm sorry I wrote something that caused offense", but it is essential.
Without an apology, we have an editor with 76,000 edits on Commons who apparently does not understand that when he offends, even without intending it, he must apologize. That is part of being a member of a collaborative team. Such an editor should not receive more powers -- and, if the behavior is repeated, might be blocked.      Jim . . . .

I am particularly grateful to Jim for his quiet, non-aggressive, clear words, allowing the solution to the problem. Crusader is not a dirty word. For me it means "extreme fighter". Nothing more. I don’t think that I was more offensive with the word "crusader" referring to Mathonius, than with "bad Saracen" referring to me. However, if this word has been perceived as offensive, I apologize officially with the admins and especially with Mathonius. It was not my intention. I only regret that for a word that one perceived as offensive and the other not, the clarification comes only now, while it could be three months ago. And I regret that none of the admins wanted to join the discussion concretely about why this conflict was created, preferring the silence. I remember that it have been rejected rename of files like this File:Sommer, Giorgio (1834-1914) - n. ... - Capri.jpg. Never mind! I return to my work on files and categories of Italy, working with the admins who have appreciated my work, and with whom there has always been the utmost cooperation and mutual respect in all these years. This is my main interest and I think also that of Commons. I wish you all a good job and good festive season. Sincerely, --DenghiùComm (talk) 15:23, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
