re: your RFA[edit]

Hi Cool Cat. For the thing with anthere, I'm sure you meant well, but forcing a project in any direction is not our place. It's always their choice and when they're ready to make a change, they will.

In general I don't believe vandalism is a huge problem at Commons. The biggest problems that need tackling, in my opinion, are images with unfree, inaccurate or incomplete licenses, orphan images (not in any category and not on any gallery page) and technical multilinguality issues. In fact with the Commons:Tools, any person at all can help out with these. Tagging images as incomplete license, notifying the uploader, giving images categories... These are the real "grunt work" which is rarely noticed or appreciated but sorely needed. The big admin tool at Commons is of course the ability to delete images. But because images can't be undeleted, a deleted image is gone forever and you need to be very certain an image should be deleted. Otherwise it could cause a lot of resentment especially among local project users, who will say again, "Why should we trust the Commons?". So I think admins need a very conservative attitude towards image deletion, which I don't feel that you have. So, I will keep my vote oppose. This doesn't mean that your work is not valued, or that your future work is not valuable. Cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 01:26, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

You see I process the RC feed, I can adjust my bot for that. Hmmm... How about a bot detecting images uploaded without being tagged? --Cool CatTalk|@ 12:18, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
It could be useful, maybe in combination with Special:Newimages somehow? But two things, one is that some people prefer to upload the image first, then edit it to put in the license. the other is that images being uploaded with the wrong license is a bigger problem... and I don't see any bot fixing that. See how you go. pfctdayelise (translate?) 12:56, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
The bot only points to problem candidates. Doesnt mean its perfect. :) --Cool CatTalk|@ 00:34, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Image:LT-Army-Student Officer.jpg speedy deletion[edit]

Er, why exactly is "LT-Army-OF1d.jpg" a better name? It seems more cryptic, and thus less useful, IMO. Is the original name inaccurate? pfctdayelise (translate?) 12:47, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Oh no there is a reason for that. Rank insignias comes in series. If is very easy to use them when file is named like this. The original name of the rank exists on the article description page.
  1. LT is Latvias code (I dont mind its rename to LAT and I am kicking myself for not doing this)
  2. Army is the branch, I also intend to do Navy, Air force etc.
  3. OF-1d is the NATO equavalent code. OF-5 would be colonel, OF-1d is cadet/student officer.
See the usage of such images in Ranks and insignia of NATO armies officers.
Hope this explains the matter. I can explain in greater detail if you'd like that. :)

Hi. I see you're runnning for administrator. I do hope your nomination goes well, and good luck. -K' 19:50, 2 March 2006 (UTC) (aka Megaman Zero)

Sorry for having to oppose your admin nomination. I'll support you the next time, I think you make good contributions. / Fred Chess 00:10, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Commons:Administrators/Requests and votes/Cool Cat[edit]

Admin mop.PNG Hello! Thank you for taking the time to vote for me in my recent request for adminship. It ended with a final score of (8/10) and hece failed to reach concensus. I value all of the contributions made during the process and I will take a special note of the constructive criticism regarding interacting with users in the user talk space. If you have questions, or requests, please leave a message. --Cool CatTalk|@ 12:49, 8 March 2006 (UTC)


Hello! I'm a bureaucrat on this project. Your request for adminship is now pending for 12 days. Our rules state "Nominations usually remain for seven days, for votes and comments. Admin status will be granted by a majority of at least 75% and a minimum of 4 votes". I'm sorry but I don't see your request approaching at least 75% of the votes (support 6, oppose 10). So that I am going to consider that your request has been rejected. Maybe you could re-apply in a few months. Thank you. villy 06:52, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

I see you oppose my meta adminship too... You have no idea how many times I heard "come back in a month for new rfa". I gave up on adminship on en and come here and I get en people (who are not active here) dominate my rfa.--Cool CatTalk|@ 13:03, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

speedy deletion[edit]

Can you please put a link to the correctly named image when requesting speedy deletion? eg Image:Star Trek Film S1 OF6.png. Thanks, pfctdayelise (translate?) 07:16, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

Image:Star Trek Film S1 OF6.png was renamed as Image:Star Trek Film OF6.png. Films dont have seasons. OF7 OF8 OF9 and OF10 had a similar rename. I already reuploaded the image and renamed all referances to the old image interwiki. Yes, I did my homework.
If I were an admin I could clean up my mess more effectively and save you time but I am not entrusted with such access. Meanwhile I only ask you to trust me with the images I uploaded myself, especialy with rank insignias. It is very stressful to deal with 1000+ images, it is muc more stressfull if one screws up. It is likely I would forget to mention the exact title of the newer image as my errors often cost me hours of tedious work.
I understand any deletion on comons have interwiki results which is why admins need to be careful but I believe you would appriciate my position perhaps?
--Cool CatTalk|@ 03:13, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
I hope you don't feel that I am being petty or singling you out because I wasn't, at all. And I wasn't meaning to criticise you, just seek more information. And this is especially not about your unsuccessful RfA. It's just my speedy deletion procedure. It doesn't matter what the image is or who requested it for deletion, I always check to make sure that the duplicate is in fact the same, because it's so easy to make a mistake and edit the wrong page or c&p the wrong thing or whatever. I leave similar messages on the talk pages of newbies. I leave similar messages on the talk pages of admins. We're all only human. Usually people put a link to the other image, or if they don't I can check in their Gallery and it's usually right next to the one requesting deletion. It's only because you have so many uploads that I couldn't check in this way. It is likely I would forget to mention the exact title of the newer image as my errors often cost me hours of tedious work. I am not sure what you mean by this, since I am trying to avoid errors too.
I do consider you a valuable and reliable member of the community - I wouldn't have asked you for the favour of translating for me if I didn't. Again I'm sorry if you got the wrong impression about the intention of my message here. pfctdayelise (translate?) 06:09, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
No harm done. I see what you got there, hmm... I'll be more carefull in the future. --Cool CatTalk|@ 22:41, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

User talk:Slaciner[edit]

Another message. I think this user speaks Turkish. Could you please leave them a strongly-worded translation of what I wrote. They have uploaded a lot of images now so I am quite suspicious. Please tag any as incomplete source by {{no source since|month=March|day=13|year=2006}} or speedy delete obvious copyvios with {{delete}}. Thanks for your help, pfctdayelise (translate?) 08:16, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

I'll process the images soon, I already msged the person in question. --Cool CatTalk|@ 03:25, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
Thanks, I appreciate it. pfctdayelise (translate?) 06:11, 16 March 2006 (UTC)


I presume User:Coolcat is not you, since they made this edit, so I blocked them indefinitely. Let me know if this is in error. cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 08:08, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

You have blocked my first imposter on commons. I would award you a barnstar had this been :) --Cool CatTalk|@ 21:38, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
