Removal of delisted pictures from the FP Galleries[edit]

I have just noticed that FPs that got successfully delisted are not being removed from the FP Galleries by the FPCBot. So, I have removed the ones that I know were recently delisted. I would not mind taking on the duty of removing all delisted pictures from the Galleries every time one gets delisted if no one else is willing to. StellarHalo (talk) 14:34, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

StellarHalo, the FPCBot isn't programmed to process and remove delisted FPs (or fix the delist and replace). That entire process is far to complicated to entrust to the Bot, so it has, and is, always been done manually. I know that from time to time, inexperienced users try to "close" delists by simply closing the nom and remove the delisted FP from the gallery. Well, there is a bit more to it. Please read the full instructions on COM:FPC#Closing a delisting request, including log, chronological, assessment on the file page, FP categories etc. If you open a delist request, you should be prepared to deal with what comes after. Unfortunately, that is seldom on delist nominators' mind: "It's all fixed by a Bot". Well, the name of that "Bot" has mostly been A.Savin and sometimes Cart and a few other. You are more than welcome to sort out whatever mess there has been made. :-) --Cart (talk) 16:03, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

Why not migrate translations to use Special:Translate?[edit]

Are there reasons that why translations must be traditional typed? Instead of a smart Extension? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 09:01, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Non FP pictures in gallery?[edit]

In Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Interiors/Religious buildings#Armenia there seem to be images which to my untrained eye do not seem to be of FP quality and are not marked as featured pictures on the file page (see File:Эчмиадзин.JPG, File:Church Gayane 40.JPG, and File:Татев 006 - panoramio.jpg).

Thanks for the tip. It is NikolayMoscow who is adding photos wildly at the FP galleries. Please stop this and read the rules for FP. --Cart (talk) 18:27, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
