Can we add {{Private correspondence}} to the list of acceptable options in the Source field?[edit]

{{edit request}}I've been wondering how to handle a recent concern I've had with how to properly fill in the |source= field for an image I uploaded when the author had given his permission in a private OTRS message and wished to remain confidential. I was eventually informed by LX that the correct option to use would have been {{Private correspondence}}. It would have been great if I could have found this right here in the Information template, and I would like to request that it be added to the description of |source= here so that it won't be so difficult for editors in the future to find. Can this be done? KDS4444 (talk) 23:10, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

It appears I was able to do this myself after all. This edit request may be ignored. KDS4444 (talk) 03:47, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Missing dates[edit]

Hi all, i'd like to find all files with missing date. Is there any easy way? Maybe we could add a category similar to when the author is missing. --Arnd (talk) 11:47, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Well, missing dates are not a big problem, compared to missing author or source. --Leyo 13:31, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
i know, but is this a reason against having such a category? I agree that a warning on the description page is not required. But a maintenance category would help at least me in reducing missing date. --Arnd (talk) 19:50, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
Well, I am indifferent here, weighing benefits and costs. Other opinions? --Leyo 21:21, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Ok, i think i can generate such a list also by parsing a Commons dump or something like this. --Arnd (talk) 04:17, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
