Also ehrlichgesagt blicke ich durch diese Loeschung noch nicht ganz durch, da die Seite keine persoenlichen Informationen enthielt. Kannst du mir auf die Spruenge helfen ? →Na·gy 19:23, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Ja, auf commons sind talkpages nicht noindex und es gibt gewisse gründe, die ich nicht onwiki breittreten möchte, wesshalb ich bei diesem hier immer die talks lösche. Grüße, abf /talk to me/ 19:29, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Ah, okay. Kannst mich bei Gelegenheit gerne im IRC aufklaeren. Frohes Neues und danke fuer die rasche Antwort uebrigens :) →Na·gy 20:07, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Wait please

Hi, I'm uploading from Flickr, but I'm over the hour limit, so I have to wait. Please don't delete pages like that, the file will be uploaded in one hour. Thank's a lot. --Daniel Baránek (talk) 16:46, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

restored and done. Please do not create more page than your upload-limit in feauture or ask Bryan to expand your limit. abf « Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 16:51, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. Of course I wont, I just didn't know that I'm over limit. --Daniel Baránek (talk) 16:55, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Template:Age in days

Hallo ABF. Ich habe das in dieser Vorlage eingebundene Template:Gregorian serial date von der en-WP übernommen. Könntest du vielleicht die Versionsgeschichte importieren? Du hast's ja bereits für die erstgenannte Vorlage getan. Danke. --Leyo 02:00, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

✓ Gedönert :) danke. abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 09:57, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Danke. Die (momentan rote) Kategorie müsste entweder angelegt, geändert oder entfernt werden. Ich weiss nicht, was am besten ist. --Leyo 12:53, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
✓ Döner aussi :) Danke für den Hinweis. abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 15:54, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Unspecific deletion warning

I have just been sent a warning that one or more unspecified contributions I have made either has been or will soon be deleted.

Is it possible for you to be more specific, please?

The warning is so vague that I have absolutely no way of knowing what is under threat of deletion. Thanks

Robert of Ramsor (talk) 21:30, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

It appears that the item in the warning was my unsuccessful attempt to create a subcategory under Category:Objects for Subcategory: Monuments and Memorials. I thought I had gone through the correct procedures but found it was listed as a "Page" not a Subcategory.

I consider that there is a case for a specific category relating to War Memorials in Britain (or England or UK). But this should function as a subcategory of a more general Monuments and Memorials category, and the first choice for a logical tree from the Main Page seems to be Objects.

That is, Category:Objects| Monuments and Memorials| War Memorials| War memorials in Britain Monuments and Memorials| War Memorials| War memorials in Britain suggested a method for doing this, which I followed as best as I could, copying and pasting from existing examples to try to get the format right. Robert of Ramsor (talk) 21:44, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi! The page the warning was about is Monuments and Memorials. I believe you only forgott the "Category:" before "Monuments and Memorials" while creating the page. And because Commons does not accept pages without files the page was deleted. Regards, abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 13:52, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Images by Lavelk from Photobucket

I'd note that this deletion request covers all images uploaded under OTRS ticket 1360068. This is all of them I think. I'm not sure why only a few are listed on the DR. Adambro (talk) 20:42, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Could you please make a follow-rfd? I am a bit aware of deleting so many images without discussions. Maybe there is even a keep-argument for one. Regards, abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 20:44, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank You

Follainville-Dennemont category suppression

Please could you add a comprehensible comment ?--Pline (talk) 17:00, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

You missed the "category" in front of the name. abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 17:15, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Thank you and sorry :-((((--Pline (talk) 17:40, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Quality Image Promotion

Firecreaker exploding in the air.jpg
Your image has been reviewed and promoted

Congratulations! Firecreaker exploding in the air.jpg, which was produced by you, was reviewed and has now been promoted to Quality Image status.

If you would like to nominate another image, please do so at Quality images candidates.

:) abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 19:14, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
Hello! Congratulations on your QI, it's really nice! I was curious and went to check it out, then saw that your license template has a wording that might be a bit confusing. You mention "If you are going to use this file please send a short mail to", maybe you should make clear that it would be appreciated (but not mandatory) to send an e-mail, otherwise it looks like a limitation to use (that would not be acceptable on Commons, as you know). Cheers, Patrícia msg 22:36, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh, sure, I will change my template. Thanks for pointing that out :) abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 13:21, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Caulile Mountain.JPG

Hello, Could you reopen this RFD, please ? Or, alternatively, perhaps close it with a different reason ? Thanks. -- Asclepias (talk) 16:03, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Why? There was no file on that page. Do I miss something? If yes, please tell me. abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 16:06, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
I see a file with a delete template.. here. Maybe some error? Abigor talk 16:11, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
(Edit-conflict with Abigor) Thank you for pointing this out :). Did so. abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 16:13, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks ..

...for the RFB support. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 09:22, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

No problem, happy crating ;) abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 19:17, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Your RfB

Hmm. Well the first issue with your editing is that you consider Lar a better 'crat than me!

But seriously, I'll keep an eye out and let you know if I see anything. Cheers. Giggy (talk) 06:24, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Wie sieht das Dschungelcamp für Wikipedianer nochmal genau aus, die gerne Trusted User wären? Achates (talk) 20:07, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

This media may be deleted.

I saw that by several uploads from paintings from Anastasiya Markovich this: This media may be deleted. I have send all earlier a letter to WikiCommons that I have permissions to us this pics. My printer/scanner is now out of order. Can you give me an Email address where I can send this permission letter? Can you wait solong and not delete the pics so I have time for sending Email and correct things. Thanks!

With greetings,

Dr. Karel J. Labberté

Please send the permissions to the OTRS-team (the e-mail adresses are on the linked pages.). Btw. please don't generate signatures by unsubsted template-transclusions. Regards, abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 20:19, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Permissions etc. is send now by Email. Regards KJL 12:28, 22 January 2009 (UTC)


Commons:Deletion requests/Image:General Fan Hanjie.jpg now has ORTS. Can somebody please remove the call for deletion tag? Thanks. Jidanni (talk) 20:59, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

As I told you before I participated in the discussion, so I won't close it. abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 14:58, 23 January 2009 (UTC)



Several files (all) have now: "The permission for use of this work has been verified and archived in the Wikimedia OTRS system. It is available as ticket 2009012210014578 for users with an OTRS account. To confirm the permission, please contact someone with an OTRS account." So one problem less in this world. Thanks for your attentions!

With regards, -- KJL 68 Watchdog 21:45, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

The sysop revieving the category will sure come over this and review it :) abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 21:49, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
What means that? I'm still a Baby Wikipedian from 68 years! :) -- KJL 68 Watchdog 09:40, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
The Images are in a category for permissions/sources to be checked, and this will be done by a sysop, and this person will decide if the permission is statisfying. abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 09:57, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Uniforms Knötel

Hallo ABF, warum haben Sie die eben angelegte Kategorie, zu der ich nun Bilder hochladen will, gelöscht? Zum richtigen Einordnen gehört eine vernünftige (logisch eingebaute) Kategorie. --Milgesch (talk) 14:00, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Weil Sie das "Category:" vor dem Namen vergessen hatten. abf «Cabale?! Quelle Caballe?» 15:22, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Sorry. --Milgesch (talk) 16:14, 24 January 2009 (UTC)


I'm unsure of why this photo was deleted. It was simply a crop of File:Db canyon.jpg. If this is a copyvio, then all files this user uploaded should be deleted under the same rationale; however, I believe Specs, the uploader, is James Spector (sic?), who is Blaine's assistant. --David Shankbone (talk) 16:07, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Reactor drawings

Hi! You deleted a stack of reactor drawings. I have only looked at one of them, see Commons:Deletion requests/File:RBMK Reaktorhallenaufbau.PNG. In my opinion, this was not a copyright violation. Technical drawings will always be similar, and of course one uses other people's drawing. Please restore. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 19:12, 25 January 2009 (UTC)


Hi I used the tag "delete" on this image's page which I got from the help files
Why has it not been deleted and why has it taken so long for someone to pick this up. If it is because I put the wrong tag can you please direct me to where the info is on correct self-deletions tags

thanks---Chaosdruid (talk) 16:09, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Hello Chaosdruid, User:ABF isn't currently online, so I revert your last edit for the moment, because there was no delete reason. Please tell us, why do you want to delete this picture? greetings -- Ra'ike T C 13:02, 27 January 2009 (UTC) P.S.: To help you find the right deletion-template look at Commons:Deletion policy, Commons:Deletion requests and Category:Candidates for speedy deletion
Hi - I duplicated the image by mistake, and it is someone else's work. I have tagged it with 'duplicate|Image:existing image.jpg'
Ah, ok. Picture is deleted now as a duplicate of File:Holkam beach.jpg. -- Ra'ike T C 01:53, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
