First edit =[edit]

Hi - thanks for contributing. You have tagged Image:Bicentlogo.png and Image:Bicentlogo.gif as PD (what's the gif for, anayway?) - please explain on the description pages why you belive the logos to be in the public domain. Are they work of a US gevernment agency? If so, please tag them as {{PD-USGov}}. Please also add a source and, ideally, a link to a policy page where the status of the logo is discussed. Thanks! -- Duesentrieb 18:38, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Ah, never mind about the GIF, I just saw you tagged it for speedy deletion - it's gone now :) -- Duesentrieb 18:39, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
oh, please also put images into categories and/or on gallery pages, so they can be found by others. -- Duesentrieb 18:40, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)


Thank you for uploading images on Commons.

Please add license tag(s) (see Commons:Copyright tags for more information).

Re: Someone is driving me crazy[edit]

A certain User is driving me crazy with duplicate images and bad Categorization with Florida images. I left the user a message on talk page but from what I'm reading English may not help. Bastique 05:04, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

I'm not a fan of his work too. I left 2 remarks on Russian already (his native language) on his talk page (Image:Adam Mickiewicz.jpg Categorization, Image:Lg-map.png).
I think good idea to discuss question on Commons:Village Pump about temporary block of his account. Since he operated bot and upload many images, he should take care about good categorization before massive uploads.
EugeneZelenko 06:19, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
I proposed him to stop uploads and review already uploaded images. Blocking is drastic measure, which should be applied only if user will not change behavior. --EugeneZelenko 16:09, 16 January 2006 (UTC)


Thanks to your support, I was successful on my adminship as well. Thanks! -- WB 06:56, 19 January 2006 (UTC)


How can you have over 2,000 edits at ga: and only be ga-1?! :) I'm curious. pfctdayelise 12:21, 19 January 2006 (UTC)


You are now an admin here on Commons. Congratulations! villy 08:25, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

  • Congratulations! -- WB 23:21, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

Re: Administrative functions[edit]

I am now an administrator here at Commons. You have been a help and source of information as an administrator while I've been an ordinary user, and I wanted to know if you had any advice to offer along the way. Also, any help you need, please don't hesitate to ask. Bas parler voir 16:27, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

All information below is very subjective :-)
Good idea to look at least once a day in Commons:Village Pump Commons:Deletion requests, Commons:Administrators.
Be very careful with deletion: Check-Usage doesn't check all projects. Even copyvio image must be removed from article(s) where it is used.
Good idea to overlook several categories with familiar/interesting subject for better categorizing. Like you do with Category:Florida.
Mark files without license/source with {{unknown|~~~~~}}, {{no source|~~~~~}}.
Overlook Special:Recentchanges (if you have time): invite newbies, explain typical errors to other users.
Of course, fight vandalism, if you notice it.

Uploading "cross" images[edit]

Please make sure the images are not being used before you replace them! Bas parler voir 04:41, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

For instance, see Image:Denmark_flag_300.png#filelinks. There are a lot of pages that need to be replaced before this image can be removed! Bas parler voir 04:43, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

My intention was that people realize themselves that a image is going to be deleted as they see a cross. So, the image wikilink would be replaced by themselves (getting info at description page of the image) instead of replacing all the wikilinks by only one person. --Joanot Martorell 07:45, 26 January 2006 (UTC)


Hello Bas, I've just added a comment at User talk:Rdsmith4/Welcome-es. Anna 21:16, 26 January 2006 (UTC)


thanks :) --Romeo Bravo 22:16, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Hello Bastique[edit]

Thanks for your welcome message. The {{copyvio}} tag is not mentioned on the COM:DG page. That makes a lot of things to do to make a deletion request, but I'll try to remember that. --Teofilo 14:56, 27 January 2006 (UTC)


Why did you restore this? This was automatically created by the Commonist mass upload tool, and I don't need it any more. --SPUI 23:15, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

Error on Map of Florida counties numbered.svg.[edit]

Please see Image talk:Map of Florida counties numbered.svg. -- Jeandré, 2006-01-28t20:08z


Hi there! Thanks for your note regarding tags: my main intent is to tag and get rid of possible duplicates. While I've been diligent to change over appropriate links/categories for said images, I occasionally suffer from strabismus and may miss some.

In any event, I'll keep this in mind when tagging images in the future. Thanks again! E Pluribus Anthony 00:31, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Category:Drosera regia[edit]

Hello, Bastique, you reverted my proposal to delete: "Category:Drosera regia" without notice. Please look at [Category:Droseraceae] [1] and tell me the sense of a category: Drosera regia. The article for the species: Drosera regia is exsistent in the botanical navigation. A category for the botanical genus: Drosera is useful an will follow. Greetings. Orchi 21:03, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Your question[edit]

My responce on your question/comment is here. Regards, --Klemen Kocjančič (Pogovor - Quick response) 10:54, 30 January 2006 (UTC)


Salut Bastique. I gouess you've overacted a little bit when you said it's most certainly not unused; Image:WikinewsLogoPolarGlobe9To.png is exctly used two times on one site! The site's name is Wikinews logo contest voting/Variants, and according to you I tried to upload this file on meta. Unfortunatley, I couldn't and the following text appeared: A file with this name exists already in the shared file repository; please go back and upload this file under a new name. I guess it'll work after the file has been deleted the upload on meta will work propperly. I'd do the job, I've already downloaded the file on my pc. But there's a question: Do you trust me? If yes, go on and delete the image. Best regards, Schaengel89 15:35, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

I remove these images from articles in Polish wikipedia. Can you now delete them? P A L L A D I N U S talk 16:21, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
