Discussions about car VI category names[edit]

There are three discussions ongoing about the names of three of the Valued Image categories related to cars which contributors here might be interested in:

VI set[edit]

Is it possible to nominate a set of images as valued one? Thank you. --Бахтиёр Абдуллаев (talk) 22:35, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Not this section is no longer active. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:02, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

Night views[edit]

I'd like to work a lot more in the near future with night photography and nominate my picture as Valued image candidates. Now on this nominee a comment by @Charlesjsharp: was "I don't think we want scopes with 'night view', unless it's an illuminated building". I'd be very interested what is other's opinion about scopes with night view--Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 18:36, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support No problem. This is an excellent initiative that should be encouraged. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:05, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

VICBot malfunctioning?[edit]

Hi all, I wonder if anyone knows how to fix a problem I have with VICBot.

This image of mine was promoted as a VI on 3 April 2016. However, since 06:29 on 19 April, VICBot has been re-promoting it twice a day. I reverted it the first couple of times, but I'd rather stop it from doing that altogether. Does anyone have any ideas? DeFacto (talk). 18:43, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

  • Bot noticed that you were very deserving! More seriously; there are small bugs that you can manually correct usually I do but there are mistakes I can not see. It is possible that there in your case hidden characters that you introduced without seeing them in the appointment. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:04, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
I never identified.--Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 16:34, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
  • It's stopped doing it now. The only clue I have is that it started after I nominated two more candidate files whose names happened to contain the name of the troublesome image and only stopped after they were promoted. DeFacto (talk). 14:12, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
  • And started doing it again when I nominated two other images which contained its name! DeFacto (talk). 20:46, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
  • And stopped again after the two new images were promoted. DeFacto (talk). 21:14, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
