Commons:Deletion requests/Files in images of post-1900 coins[edit]

Hi Alan, could you take a second look at this please? You closed as delete, but most of the files are still there. Did you mean to put the {{delf}} at the end of the first section? Maybe the way I formatted the DR was confusing... if so, I apologize. Storkk (talk) 10:03, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

@Storkk: Yes, this is strange. I do so again. Thanks. Alan (talk) 10:07, 4 December 2015 (UTC)
I know what happened: I closed the first half and the script has closed the two applications together (same title).  Doing… all. Alan (talk) 10:12, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

Hola Alan, gracias por tu tiempo y tu colaboración. Pido sinceras disculpas por haber subido archivos de manera equivocada. Recién estoy dando mis primeros pasos y, en relación a la carga de archivos, no han sido felices. No me justifico, no saber como hacerlo no me da derecho a hacerlo, pero si pido tu comprensión. Hace unos días pedí que se borraran, pero parece que tampoco lo pedí a quien podía hacerlo, así que simplemente estoy esperando el tiempo para que se borren automáticamente. Si puedes hacer algo al respecto te pido que borres todos los archivos que subí. Si bien los obtuve de sitios públicos y sin derecho de autor exigible, tienes razón no supe como demostrarlo. Agradeciendo nuevamente tu tiempo, quedo a tu disposición y será un privilegio que veas los artículos que si pude hacer medianamente bien en Wiquipedia :-) y me hagas criticas para su mejora. Atte.AnaRodriSec (talk) 17:59, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

@AnaRodriSec: ✓ Done No te preocupes, lo importante es darse cuenta y rectificar. Cualquier duda que tengas puedes preguntármela. Un saludo. Alan (talk) 22:32, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

Alan, muchas gracias, al fin tengo limpia esa parte oscura de mis primeros pasos :-). Gracias por tu tiempo y disposición, tengo muchas consultas pero tratare de leer todas las ayudas y finalmente cuando sea alguna puntual te preguntare. Cordialmente AnaRodriSec (talk) 23:41, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

Can you describe your decision here. This file has been used in 4 wikis --Butko (talk) 20:33, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

@Butko: There appears not in use, I have sought by hand and found in ruwiki. Restored and kept. Alan (talk) 20:42, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. Also you've deleted File:Народный референдум Харьковской области 7.03.2014.JPG as file without permission, but this file was tagged as {{PD-UA-exempt}} and {{PD-trivial}}. These licenses don't require permission --Butko (talk) 20:48, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
@Butko: For mentioned file, please open an undeletion request at com:UDEL. Regards. Alan (talk) 21:01, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Undeletion request[edit]

Hello Alan,

You have recently deleted these files that are in the public domain:

Do you have a particular reason? because I really don't see why. And if I'm not mistaken the licence of this files had already been checked by User:FlickreviewR 2 and it was fine. So please undelete these files if there was actually no reason to delete them. Thanks in advance, Nemesis III (discuter) 00:35, 6 December 2015 (UTC).

See this RfC: Commons:Requests for comment/Flickr and PD images
Currently it is discussed because many user, for example me, we disagree with this decision.
Regards, Alan (talk) 10:58, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
Okay, thank you for your answer. It would have been better to explain clearly to the uploaders of such pictures before deleting the files Face-smile.svg. Nemesis III (discuter) 16:53, 6 December 2015 (UTC).


Hi Alan,

You deleted images by Netzhering. The reasons provided are under Commons:Non-copyright restrictions, and the license is irrevocable. I think these files should not have been deleted, let alone speedy deleted. Some of them were in use. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:21, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Please let them deleted, they were token against home rule. I want only be calm for myself when the pics stay deleted please respect this reason thank you --Netzhering (talk) 11:34, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi @Yann:
For example: File:LambertuspyramideOchtrup5.JPG - {{copyvio|1=No permission for inside photo. It is a "must" in Germany. I did not know at that time[[User:Netzhering|Netzhering]] ([[User talk:Netzhering|<span class="signature-talk">{{int:Talkpagelinktext}}</span>]]) 17:35, 5 December 2015 (UTC)}}
Seems reasonable for deletion. Alan (talk) 11:36, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
Hi Alan, this is an action of revenge because Netzhering, Fliegenfuss, Möhren schrappen, Bradnmessa (all the same account, there may be more) is in trouble (blocked) on de-wiki. There is no reason to delete these pictures. Thanks --Watzmann Talk 12:20, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

@Steinsplitter: Thanks!! But this case is about all images of Special:DeletedContributions/Netzhering. Regards, Alan (talk) 15:34, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
@Steinsplitter: Perhaps waiting the discussion for this pic and if this is deleted again, stay deleted all the others, and if nott deletd, restore all the others then, regards --Netzhering (talk) 15:41, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

It ist house rule violation, dont believe the edit above He is one of these who are "enemy" of mine on german wikiopedia they want do give me trouble!--Netzhering (talk) 12:28, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Send Watzmann the Pics per e-Mail and he should upload them under his name... --Netzhering (talk) 12:49, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

ANd, if the pics will reloaded, please remark immediately that I´m not responsable for uploading them again! Thank you --Netzhering (talk) 12:55, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Can someone please block him for indignities like this: Revision #181161104? --Watzmann Talk 13:48, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Someone has done an edit to this case More than that was not necessary... --Netzhering (talk) 15:28, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Copyvio cleanup[edit]

Hi Alan, after deleting the file as an obvious copyvio would you mind closing Commons:Deletion requests/File:1-stewa-rd.JPG? Thanks, De728631 (talk) 19:18, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Removal of images in Category:Street signs in Faenza[edit]

Good evening,

Some time ago I uploaded six pictures of ceramic (maioica) street signs of Faenza (Italy; the town that gave its name to fayence). As there is no Freedom of Panorama in Italy I contacted the authorities and received a letter from the mayor, dott. Giovanni Malpezzi, who said that not only the city had no objections to but felt honored by the publication of the images ("non solo questa Amministrazione non ha obiezioni in merito ma La ringrazia per l'iniziativa che fa onore alla nostra città e contribuisce a valorizzarne l'immagine").

I sent this letter to on 2015-09-29 but the e-mail bounced, so I sent it to the same day, mentioning that it was in Italian. In response I got the ticket number 2015092910023985.

As nothing seemed to happen I sent the message again, approximately one day ago, and received the ticket number 2015120710026249. This time something happened; you deleted two out of the six images (I suppose it was by pure coincidence). All the time I never was contacted or notified. I looked for a formal way to mention the ticket numbers in the image descriptions but there doesn't seem to be one for the uploader.

I would appreciate if you could tell me what I, in retrospect, could have done better or ought to have done. No hurry of course.

Thanks in advance, and have a good time. -- Aisano (talk) 22:50, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

File:Reginardo, príncipe-obispo de Lieja.jpg[edit]

Hola Pintxo, quería preguntarte por la licencia de esta imagen; la subí justo cuando empecé a editar en la es.wp y no tenía ni idea de licencias. La cogí de esta página. Creo que no hay problema con el resto de imágenes que he subido a Commons, pocas, ya que todas son fotos hechas directamente por mí. Espero tu respuesta. Un saludo.--Syum90 (talk) 09:24, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

@Syum90: Buenos días!
Caso curioso, teóricamente no se debería poder ya que lo que cuenta en este caso son los derechos que se generan al sacar la foto y dudo que tengan dicha antigüedad. No obstante parece que existe una tendencia a permitir este tipo de fotos aunque las políticas (com:DW creo que habla de esto) y las respectivas Leyes digan que se violan los derechos de autor.
En resumen: Realmente esa foto debería ser borrada, pero... tú decides.
Un saludo, Alan (talk) 09:49, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

Removal of pictures in 'Category:WiBrugherio images' with OTRS pending[edit]

Hello Alan, sorry but I have to ask you why did you remove the pictures in this category without giving us any notice? The images were taken by people in the Municipality of Brugherio and are owned by the Municipality of Brugherio, which has given its permission to use them on Wikicommons (you can see letter from the mayor of the town that I sent to Wikicommns by e-mail and that I can resend). I followed the steps listed on Wikicommons to ask for a OTRS ticket, sending e-mails to <> but, aside from an automatic confirmation of proper reception of messages, I never received any other response. Our GLAM project involves the enrichment of Wikicommons databases, then I would be grateful if you would tell me how can we do to fix this problem. Best regards --Labaici (talk) 09:42, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

@Labaici: Commons can't keep a pictures without acepted permission by our OTRS for so long. Don't worry, when the emails are processed by an OTRS agent, all photos will be restored. Keep in mind that there is considerable delay in permission queues.
What is the OTRS-ticket number? (appears in subject of the automatic response). Regards, Alan (talk) 10:02, 9 December 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your quick response. There are several e-mail, so several ticket n. I list you the numbers here:

It seems ok, thanks! But now all the pictures that you deleted on Commons have been removed from their Wikipedia pages by a bot. Have we to put them back one by one, or we may hope to restore them automatically? Best --Labaici (talk) 09:55, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
@Labaici: Restorations are one by one. Were in many pages? You can make a list of affected pages and I'll try help you. Alan (talk) 11:28, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
there were quite many, yes. can I know automatically in which wikipedia pages the commons deleted files were linked? (Re: No, but you can see your contributions) can I undo the action of the bot looking in wikipedia pages history? (Re: Yes) --Labaici (talk) 13:17, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of File:Pomfret School Clark Chapel Carols 2009.jpg[edit]

I posted this photo and received WP notice that I needed to supply a release form from Pomfret School, the rights holder. I did so. I asked the school's archivist to fill out a standard Wikipedia release form, but she felt she did not have authority and so sent the request on to the Director of Communications, who then returned the release and signed. I forwarded that release to Wikipedia as requested. The photo has since been deleted. Please advise why the release form was not satisfactory. Here is the release as received by me from

The permit must be submitted by the original author to Wikimedia OTRS. Alan (talk) 21:08, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) If you’re sure the consent letter was sent to the appropriate address, try posting at the OTRS Noticeboard, where volunteers with access to the confidential mail system will be able to follow up. There should have been an automated response with a “ticket“ number that, if available, will help them find the correspondence. Once everything’s in order, the file can be undeleted.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 02:29, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Files uploaded by Jpschull[edit]

There's a problem with licences in files uploaded by this user [1]. He seems to be Spaniard, as he uploaded these files to illustrate an article on Spanish wiki -- and he seems to be a member of a Schull/Schüll (?) family. Maybe these files can stay on Commons -- it depends on the publication date and on the photographer. But they need other licences or an OTRS ticket, I suppose. I'm not an expert in Spanish copyrights... Can you explain this issue with the uploader, please? I would be very grateful. Wieralee (talk) 21:21, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

As I wrote to Wieralee (see his talk page), the uploader seems to be the son (File:Pierre schull1.jpg, "foto de mi padre difunto", see also here) who is born later than the 1950s/1960s photos have been taken. He can only have taken the photo File:Pierre Schull, Madrid.jpg himself (but that's not sure anymore after all), all other author and source informations are wrong (and the date informations also, but I've removed or corrected them already). It seems to be a mixture of family photos (where the photographer is another person than the uploader and than his father who is on the photos, File:Pierre Schull Boda 1964-1.jpg) and photos from wherever with logos like "VEGA" (File:Pierre Schull, toreando.jpg) or "Villar" (i.e. File:Pierre Schull, torero, 1957.jpg, File:Pierre schull 7.jpg) or "Photo Dumulin" (File:Pierre Schull 5.jpg), and some have signatures of people (File:Pierre Schull, torero 1.jpg, File:Pierre Schull en Espagne.jpg). So, the copyright situation of all those photos is very unclear. --Bjarlin (talk) 22:17, 13 December 2015 (UTC)


Hi Alan. You deleted file ВD_logo.png twice. This image is the logo of Russian volunteer's music festival "Byt' Dobru!" ("The Good Will Be!"), It is used on his wikipage!_(%D1%84%D0%B5%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B8%D0%B2%D0%B0%D0%BB%D1%8C). I am the co-founder and producer of this festival, and personally created this image. Why do you suspect me of stealing? Lazy FM (talk) 03:12, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

That logo appears here. If you are the copyright owner read com:OTRS and send a valid permission to our OTRS team. Alan (talk) 03:32, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

File:Seidensticker3 Storebild Köln.jpg and others[edit]

Hi Alan, can you please restore File:Seidensticker3 Storebild Köln.jpg and the other photos the user has uploaded? There is a valid permission in ticket:2015102210010294. Shouldn't there be a period of seven days before uploads are deleted? This way of proceeding makes it very hard to let users upload photos by third parties. In this case, the user did everything right by sending proper permission letters to OTRS before uploading and is now completely confused due to the deletion. Thanks and cheers, Yellowcard (talk) 19:45, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

@Riggwelter: Hi. Could you unlock the ticket? I can't access. Alan (talk) 18:12, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
It appears to be unlocked when I logged in, so you should be able to access it. But I can forward it to you if you want me to, just drop me a line. Riggwelter (talk) 04:36, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Imágenes eliminadas de Ahigal[edit]

Buenas tardes. Soy un aficionado que se dedica a subir a Commons imágenes cuyos autores han liberado bajo licencias compatibles en Flickr. Ahora mismo estaba intentando agregar estas tres imágenes en dominio público: [3] [4] [5]. Pero el sistema me informa de que ya fueron subidas por alguien y usted las borró por "Missing essential information such as license, permission or source. Media without a valid license as of 10 December 2015 - Using VisualFileChange." Como usted puede comprobar, las tres imágenes fueron liberadas por su autor en Flickr como dominio público.

Wikipedia commons deletion[edit]

The following images: Mike_Scala_on_tour_in_Dublin.jpg and Mike_Scala_in_New_York_City_2015.jpg were both "deleted from Commons by Alan because: OTRS: Unaccepted or insufficient permission for use on Commons. Media missing permission as of 26 nov 2015" I am the copyright holder of both images. They can be sourced from my website or the correlating Facebook. I know I am unable to upload once deleted. Can you please tell me how I can get my photos restored? Also Mike-giving-back03.jpg, along with image "AZy1CSba.jpg" were my first contributions to Wikipedia commons. These two images were uploaded simultaneously and apparently were uploaded in the wrong manner and were therefore removed and banned for upload as well. I attempted to contact the two users who removed them and did not receive a response. Please let me know the steps I should take to successfully upload all of my images as soon as possible. Thank you.

Why was this deleted? Beyond a vague assertion of a copyright violation, there is no other explanation. The user's uploads are all SVG renders of smartphones, what exactly was the problem with this one? ViperSnake151 (talk) 15:36, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi @ViperSnake151:
See this image from deviantart (All rights reserved).

Even though it was literally uploaded by the exact same person, who openly admits in the description of the DA version that it was also available on Commons. ViperSnake151 (talk) 21:49, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
@ViperSnake151: It's quite possible but that image was previously uploaded to another site and we need a permission sent by the original author to our OTRS. --Alan (talk) 23:17, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Kamil Wilczek[edit]

Hey Alan. I can see that you were the one who deleted File:Kamil Wilczek presse.jpg, which is why I am contacting you. As I wrote on the discussionpage of the picture, the owners of the picture, Brøndby IF, did write that it could be use for free. It might misunderstand something, but why is the a violation of the copyright? Tøndemageren (talk) 17:39, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Hello! Please read COM:L and COM:NETCOPYRIGHT. Regards, Alan (talk) 16:14, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
I know all of that - but I would still argue, that Brøndby IF made it free to use, by writing the disclaimer in the bottom of the webpage, which is why I do not understand, why it had to be deleted? mvh Tøndemageren (talk) 12:28, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Can you explain deletion of Žuži Jelinek’s photos (File:Žuži Jelinek.jpg, File:Žuži Jelinek sa Jovankom Broz.jpg, File:Žuži Jelinek 1936 godine.jpg etc.)? They were properly (and even over-) licensed, so I guess I can upload them again. I have read all policies and files comply license I did use so why did you choose to delete? Thank you! --Obsuser (talk) 19:50, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Copied from 1 deleted image information fields:
  • |source=Unknown, old photo, author deceased probably more than 70 years ago, small resolution (< 300 px)
  • |author=Unknown
Unknown + "probably" = Deleted per Precautionary principle.
Regards, Alan (talk) 20:18, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
Hmm, what about a woman being old as much that all of the photos are taken 70 years ago or more, and author deaceased for sure more than 70 years ago? You cannot find photos elsewhere, and copyright in Croatia is not present. Photos were licensed with Croatia PD license and I will upload them again. Is it OK and are they going to be deleted? Consider "unknown" + "probably" + "Croatian PD" + "< 300 px" cannot be equal to Deleted per Precautionary principle by any means. --Obsuser (talk) 23:14, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
Small resolution <300px isn't a valid argument to decide.
Can you confirm, with irrefutable data, somehow that pictures have that old?
The status of the all contents in Commons must be verifiable. --Alan (talk) 13:30, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
A woman was born 1920. That is not important alone as much as when you consider it along with this: {{PD-Croatia}} tells us directly b) it is an anonymous work and it was published before January 1st, 1949 and c) a photograph or a work of applied art published before January 1, 1974 so a) it is a work of known authorship and the author died before January 1st, 1949 which you are emphasizing is not important as license clearly states The work meets one of the following criteria:.
I guess we resolved it now as all of the photos meet either b) or c) or even both or even both + a) – what is way more than we need to have this license applied without breaking any rules. Hope you can consider these, and I can upload my photos again with changed description stating only what we know for 100% and that is that woman that was born 1920 cannot be photographed after 1974 i.e. 1973 and look as same as 1930s or 1940s.
Consider now "unknown" + "probably" + "Croatian PD" cannot be equal to Deleted per Precautionary principle by any means. Thank you!
PS If we had had irrefutable data, these photos would be way "fresher"; these are all from the years stated in their names and low resolution and will be used only because other media cannot represent what is shown there. It is really hard to find such photos, and can we presume by simple looking at the birth date and appearance they are copyrighted – of course no. So {{PD-Croatia}} can be applied.
PPS Note that other works enter the public domain 70 years after the author's death or 70 years after publication if the work was published anonymously. If this is the case please use {{PD-old-70}}.
We might choose between two licenses and you deleted work stating 1920 born woman might be photographed after 1990 and look as same as in 1930s (+ photos are almost or 100% black-white or can be edited in some program so resolutions gets even lowered, quality drops, resize to be smaller, and make black-white totally)... --Obsuser (talk) 23:38, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
Two of the photos are from 1936 i.e. 1939 (> 70 years), and one is book covers. Can you explain also these arguments? --Obsuser (talk) 23:46, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Sobre Dominio Público[edit]

Se ha listado un archivo que subí en las solicitudes de borrado. Aparentemente no cumple con los requisitos (COM:URAA) para ser considerado de dominio público, a pesar de que en mi país (Argentina) entró en esa categoría en el año 2002, según lo establece nuestra ley (Ley 11.723, Artículo 34). Por otro lado, en el libro donde se encuentra la fotografía no se hace mención a ningún tipo de protección legal para su contenido. ¿Es correcto que sea borrado, aun si únicamente es usado en la Wikipedia en español?

Mino Montanari[edit]

Hi, On the page Commons:Bistro, a user is asking for help about a few files for which the OTRS declaration of license is either pending or not accepted. I see that some of her files (logs) were deleted on 1 December 2015 with you mentioning "OTRS: Unaccepted or insufficient permission for use on Commons.". So, apparently, the user either didn't receive or didn't read the e-mail explanation from OTRS. Anyway, she is trying to figure out what's going on. I suggested that she could ask you or the OTRS noticeboard for information, but perhaps you might take the first step. Would you be kind enough to have a look at her OTRS communications and comment her question on the Bistro page to explain to her what the problem was and what she should do? Her question is in French but you can write in English and we can translate if necessary. Thanks in advance. -- Asclepias (talk) 00:38, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Ombudsman Commision[edit]

Hola Alan, te dejo el mismo mensaje que te acabo de dejar en meta.

Acabo de (re-)enviar una queja a la OC. En el pasado, los miembros de la OC han sido bastante reticentes a leer mucho, pero no he podido evitar tratar de explicarlo todo. Agradecería que, cuando la leyeras, si crees que algo no queda suficientemente claro o es confuso, que me lo hagas saber. Creo haber proporcionado toda la información necesaria en quejas anteriores, así que supongo que todo estará registrado. Un saludo --Discasto talk 12:06, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Imagen que parece plagio[edit]

Hola Alan. Espero que estés bien. Hace rato no pasaba a saludar. Bueno, junto con otro biblio de eswiki estuvimos revisando esta imagen y a ambos nos parece tomada de otro lado, aunque no encontré de dónde la han sacado. La elaboración gráfica no es acorde con la resolución, ni con la calidad de la misma. Parece una miniatura a la que le han dado copiar y luego pegar en Paint. El usuario tiene muy pocas contribuciones y son de hace tanto tiempo que dudo que sea de ayuda preguntarle. Quizás por el principio de ser prudentes sea necesario borrarla. ¿Qué opinas? Jmvkrecords Intra talk 01:26, 18 March 2016 (UTC).


Alan, quiero pedirte un favor.

Ya estoy hasta la coronilla con todos los cuestionamientos que han dado al la Ord. 112/14 de 2010 (que conozco al revés y al derecho desde que se publicó), y lo que he tratado de explicar por más de un año a usuarios que, más allá de ser cabeza dura, son extranjeros que no están familiarizados con la legislación chilena, y me parece súmamente incorrecto que estén cuestionando una y otra y otra vez esa comunicación oficial, ratificada por varias respuestas a Solicitudes de Transparencia que he reenviado a OTRS.

OTRS ticket 2016031510005968 es el más reciente, relacionado con las fotos de Prensa Presidencia. Lo envié hace casi un mes, y comprendo las demoras, incluso el miembro OTRS que contestó el email ya me instruyó a solicitar la restauración de los archivos. Pero otros miembros OTRS, lejos de colaborar, sólo ponen problemas y más problemas y siempre tratan de buscarle la sexta pata al gato con la Ord. 112/14 de 2010, lo que demuestra que parece haber poca comunicación entre los miembros (incluso estando esos mensajes en la lista de correo, no confian en la información que les reenvío de buena fe... una y otra y otra vez).

Como miembro OTRS que ya tomó un caso anterior, ¿Serías tan amable de tomar este caso, y restaurar los archivos tan pronto como sea posible? Una vez restaurados los archivos revisaré la fuente y verificaré si efectivamente fueron publicados por la Presidencia de Chile antes de 2010.

Gracias por tu atención. --Amitie 10g (talk) 23:26, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

I submitted the licensing permission affidavit/form to using the WikiCommon template on Thu, Jul 28, 2016 at 2:35 PM. I submitted this for the Fred Frankhouse photos I own and uploaded. The photos are all public domain, nevertheless, I submitted the form to the direct descendant of Frankhouse who owns the originals. He completed the permission license release template as instructed. He did this immediately as the Commons instruction was "within seven days". How can I have the photos reverted. The license/release was sent in the legal format template. Do you need the release resent to the email address I have the release saved, it can be resubmitted. --JGHSMC (talk) 23:44, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Illegitimate Barrister - user rights[edit]

Hi Alan, on 11.01.2014 you gave this user file moving rights. I ask you to revise these, as there are some controversies regarding his actions [7] (some more than these, I talked about it on my local wiki) - please check his discussion (it's not simple as he keeps archiving it + [8]). Some vulgarsims were also involved: [9]. Therefore, I will feel better if he could not move files (and perform global name changes). Masur (talk) 09:07, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

Why, what for? I have done nothing wrong. All my file moves have been in accordance with the policy guidelines. I have never once abused or misused the filemove system in the nearly three years that I have been entrusted to have it. If you take objection with my alleged actions elsewhere, then that's another matter. But it's not grounds to revoke my filemover privileges, since I've been using it faithfully and constructively for years now. – Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 09:46, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
