I think this template could be improved by using date-stamping the moves. That way the reviewers will be able to focus on fresh items and not have to go through older stuff each time... Something like the {{fact|date=}} from Wikipedia would work. I can set this bit up by editing the template (I think), but the other part of the equation is a robot which fills in the date= bit...

Agree. Good suggestion. I have added a broader disclaimer, as I have seen (and corrected) hundreds of bot transfers with wildly inaccurate information, and I'm sure there are many more urgently requiring massive correctionn. -- Infrogmation 00:36, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Hebrew translation[edit]

The Hebrew translation is not good.

Both Hebrew and English versions contain the text "see below" (ראו להלן) which is a bit obscure about the "below" it refers to. the Check Now (בדוק כעת) link does not exist in the Hebrew version. Tomer A. (talk) 12:56, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Be bold and correct it Face-grin.svg -- Avi (talk) 15:13, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
I don't have the time to find where should it be corrected. Can you post a link? Tomer A. (talk) 23:24, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
I've made some corrections/clarifications. Care to check? -- Avi (talk) 02:05, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I've edited some more. I still can't quite understand what does the see below refers to. Tomer A. (talk) 23:57, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
This template is placed at the top of images moved by CommonsHelper, the "see below" refers to the image itself and any tags applied by the bot while moving. -- Avi (talk) 05:16, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
This is redundant but i can live with it. Tomer A. (talk) 08:57, 24 February 2010 (UTC)


In order to get more translations of such templates the idea to make these translations on translatewiki should at least be evaluated. --Robby (talk) 15:17, 19 June 2011 (UTC)


{{editrequest}} The template should check if the subcategory exists and if not it should categorize into the main category. --Nachcommonsverschieber (talk) 18:45, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

The same goes here: I am opposed to that as it would be potentially confusing. Making a dedicated category, e.g. "Category:Media needing categories where timestamp category does not exist" would be my suggestion. -- Rillke(q?) 18:27, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

The please do so.--Nachcommonsverschieber (talk) 11:42, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Not done for now. Please sandbox and test the exact code. Once you have that do a new edit request so it's just copy and paste for the admin. Multichill (talk) 13:35, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Please add to the end just before the </includeonly>:

{{#ifexist:Category:Files moved to Commons requiring review as of {{{day|}}} {{{month}}} {{{year}}} | | [[Category:Files moved to Commons requiring review where timestamp category does not exist]]}}
