Hi Bastique. I address you since you are the only one that I know who was online at this time. Is Orgullobot gone from Commons? Does this mean we have to tag all untagged images ourselves again? / Fred Chess 01:12, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

OK. If there is no bot, then we have to do it by hand from now on. Have yourself a merry christmas now.... / Fred Chess 01:29, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

image:Uppsala Cathedral two towers.jpg[edit]

Hey, you removed this image from the POTD...citing not being a featured image. It is, however, a Quality Image, and those qualify for POTD. Thanks for paying attention, however. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 00:21, 24 December 2006 (UTC

Of course you are right, sorry. Merry Christmas !! Alvesgaspar 10:25, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the RFA vote[edit]

Smiley in Bow Tie.jpg Thanks for the vote --Tarawneh 00:35, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for joining us! Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 18:51, 3 January 2007 (UTC)


Hi. Please, translate these messages and update this one! Thanks in advance! --Darsie 08:21, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Done. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 14:36, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

PotD 20070207[edit]

You deleted translations for the picture of february 7. I think it had been better if you restored the image (Template:Potd/2007-02-07), which was a featured picture and eligble to be PotD. / 11:49, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

I deleted captions for an image that wasn't there. Since that time, User:EPO restored the image, as apparently it was deleted in error. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 14:42, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

... diff[edit]

Haven't I told you to stop highlighting me? :P guillom 14:45, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

He was highlighting us both. You never told him to not highlight us both. Wheels should not be highlighting you unless you are on wheels. --Cat out 18:53, 5 January 2007 (UTC)



I wonder if you can change my username from Ärkan to Erkan? I don't like the Ä, better with an E. /Ärkan 14:05, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi, please put request here: Commons:Changing username. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 14:17, 5 January 2007 (UTC)


Hi Bastique, thanks for closing my RfA. I did not deserve promotion because of some serious issues. I would continue my contributions and after spending some more time, I would like to re-nominating myself. Regards, Shyam (T/C) 17:57, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Proposal: Picture of the Year and Picture of the Month contests[edit]

I have posted a new proposal on Commons talk:Featured picture candidates regarding the creation of FP-related contests and would like your feedback on the idea. This message is being sent to some of the regular contributors to Commons:Featured picture candidates. Alvesgaspar 16:26, 8 January 2007 (UTC)


It's refering to the Swedish copyright law, the same that is refered to at {{PD-Sweden-photo}}. Regards Fred Chess 19:37, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Furthermore, it refers to the text on which says

Om att använda bilder
Bilderna i vår databas på nätet är lågupplösta kopior och kan fritt laddas ned och användas, exempelvis för privat bruk, skolarbeten, rapporter mm.

which means

On reusing images
The images in our database on the net are in low resolution and may freely be downloaded and used, for example for private use, school works, rapports, etc.

Fred Chess 19:40, 8 January 2007 (UTC)


Rules say from 2007 onwards only FP. Do not threaten me and do not try to start a war. Thanks Lycaon 21:00, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Insulting will lead nowhere. I urge you once more to revert your chages. Thanks Lycaon 21:05, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
Then at least pick another image and leave the good images alone. Play with your huge ego and have it your way. I am making images for wikipedia, not for your pretty eyes. Lycaon 21:11, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
There is nothing wrong with me, thanks for asking. I've had this discussion before with some internationalisation adept and I don't want to be part of that anymore. My graphics are painstakingly rendered in svg, as to allow easy translation and not to have them changed into cumbersome numbered derivates. Thank you, And now you can use your admin powers to protect some more pages of well meaning contributors. Lycaon 21:20, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

RE-Images du jour[edit]

  • Français : NON, NON, NON. Pourquoi avoir enlevé mes légendes ?

Il ne faut pas reculer devant la tâche. Je voulais lancer une nouvelle pratique. Qu'importe le nombre de langue...

Commons est un projet international mais pas un projet de traduction. Pourquoi serions-nous responsable d'une uniformisation ? Je me fiche des légendes dans les autres langues... Je voulais juste le faire pour les traductions françaises.

  • English: NO, NO, NO. Why have you remove my legends?

We don't have to give up behond difficulties. I wanted to launch a new practice. I don't car about the practices of Commons in other languages...

Commons is an international project but not a translation draft. Why would we be responsible for a standardization? I'd just want to lanch o FRENCH pratice.

Articles et catégories[edit]


Lorsqu'un article est vide et une catégorie pleine, ne pas mettre l'article en redirection revient à une perte d'informations pour le lecteur, sans bénéfice non plus pour le contributeur (qui devra chercher dans deux espaces au lieu d'un). L'usage pour la mythologie grecque par exemple a été de privilégier les catégories aux articles (jugés trop difficiles à maintenir).

Donc dans ce genre de cas, y a-t-il une recommandation ou une solution claire pour limiter la schizophrénie article/catégorie ? Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 20:12, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

De plus, c'est un non sens au regard des conventions de nommage de créer une page d'homonymie "Ares". Voir en:Ares (disambiguation) et toutes les pages d'homonymie des Wikipédia, qui laissent l'article en:Ares comme solution par défaut (principe de moindre surprise). Donc la page d'homonymie devrait se nommer Ares (disambiguation) et Ares devrait rediriger sur le dieu, c'est-à-dire sur Category:Ares. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 20:17, 10 January 2007 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed you removed the deletion template from Image:OfficialPhoto.jpg. Do you have an OTRS account? If so, can you please verify as to whom the permission was received from and provide a copy of the permission? 15:58, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Re: Special:Contributions/Irena.veldre[edit]

User claims the two images are available according to the website from which she obtained the image. Please have a look at and determine if this is correct. Thanks. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 18:26, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Weird happenings[edit]

Hi, thanks for the name change. I think I made a mess while trying to list a number of images for deletion - they don't seem to show up on the Jan 12 deletion requests page as they should. I'd appreciate it if you could figure out what went wrong. --Peta 02:25, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

POTY election implementation[edit]

Some help in needed to organize the POTY election. Please check the conclusions of the discussion in Commons talk:Featured picture candidates. What do you think of doing the election in the period 15-31 January? - Alvesgaspar 14:40, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

But in the format we have imagined there are no "Nominations". We just pick a FP picture from the chronological list (if the pic isn't already in the election page) and vote for it. Please check the suggestions in the election talk page - Alvesgaspar 14:44, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

image deletion request[edit]

Image:Shenyang from International Space Station.jpg is redundant and bad quality compared with image:Shenyang 123.38236E 41.77365N.jpg, which is better high re orbital satellite image of metro Shenyang. This is one of wikimedia coomons deletion guidelines. Is there anything wrong with my request? I'm a new user and didn't provide the right reason when I first made the request. Is this ok for me to make another request? Cariner 18:35, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

one is certainly better the other. But first is not bad quality. Second one is good: Yes. Second better thanthe first: Yes. First one is good: YEs too!. But much more important, the images aren't redundant. Perhaps some projects have use for the first image and the second one not. Perhaps if both were from the space station..., but the first could theoretically be used on some space station content, while the second discussiong satellital view software.
remember: Commons does NOT only serve wikipedia so please consider twice before calling an image redundant. -- Drini 18:46, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Image:Dicarboxypropane diphosphonate.png[edit]

Hello Bastique, I just saw, that you changed the speedy deletion tag on this image to superseded. Does this still mean the file shall be deleted? I think it should be deleted, because the image is incorrect, it is quite new and therefore not used in any article yet. It is the same with Image:Methylene diphosphonate.png and Image:Hydroxymethylene diphosphonate.png. --NEUROtiker 21:31, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the cake[edit]

Hi Bastique, thank you for your support and your cake. It tasted very well, and don't hesitate to take a piece yourself. -- Bryan (talk to me) 19:50, 13 January 2007 (UTC)


Hi! Thank you for the friendly welcome. It made me smile, it did. :-) Take care, FloNight 21:55, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the name change[edit]

How long before it takes effect? I'm still able to login under my old name but not my new name. Thanks for any assistance.--Nik 04:37, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Thank you, it works now. Also, I have another issue. Somebody moved an image of mine (that I got from Flickr) from over here. However, the Flickr review tag says it needs review and has been reviewed by you. I wanted to make sure it was correct so if it hasn't been reviewed, it will be picked up by the bot. That flickr user likes to switch around his license info and I'd like to for it to be reviewed ASAP while its still CC-BY-2.0. Thanks.--Nmajdan 15:42, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
Please link me to the image. Thanks. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 15:44, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi. Can you have a word with your friend? He's been acting strangely at Category:Kurdistan. Jkelly 03:28, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Help with pt users[edit]

Hi Bastique! I have already promised myself to do so. I'm an admin on pt.wikipedia and this takes almost all my available time and I use Commons usually just to upload files. Initially my help can consist in talking with Portuguese speaking users when normal warnings are not enough. Please make me know when it happens and I'll try to solve the situation.

Within the next weeks I want to increase my administrative contributions here and, as I said, feel free to "drop me" any problem you find (my biggest obstacle is to find these violations because I can't check the uploads regularly). Happy 2007! Dantadd 15:25, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

#commons-image-uploads trigger words[edit]

How are they controlled, exactly? Can you please add "anime"? maybe also "TV" and "screenshot" and "Windows XP"... --pfctdayelise (说什么?) 14:46, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

I've added you to the autovoice list. "Cubbie watchword add regular expression r=reason" is the format for adding and deleting commands. Unfortunately, I'm getting a Database locked response when I try it at the moment. Tangotango is the bot operator. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 19:58, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Diolch / merci (Welsh wiki)[edit]

Thanks for dealing with the vandalism just now ('windex.php') on the Wikipedia Cymraeg. Thought you might like to know the Welsh code for the 'Suspicious pages' template is ({{etc)) 'tudalen amheus'. See the article now. Diolch yn fawr eto / thanks again. 'Defnyddiwr:Anatiomaros' (not logged in to Commons but you can find me under my user name on cy.wikipedia).

Hello Bastique, Anatiomaros from Welsh wikipedia again. We're having a rather bad attack of vandalism and there's no admin about. Could you please come over and do something about it if you have time (by two new users - in red)? Diolch yn fawr iawn / Merci beaucoup. 23:35, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Intel on "Mehmet Murat İldan"[edit]

  • Ranks 543 on the Google noteworthiness scale.
  • Has written a number of short stories (not exactly sure how many), some of them won awards (according to tr wiki article)
  • Has written 3 novels recently (according to tr wiki article)
  • He has written 18 plays, 7 of them published by Turkish Culture Department I believe. (according to tr wiki article)
  • The person seems to be self promoting interwiki as you pointed out. Tr page has been written by a few "new users" (likely socks) history shows some minor issues...

  • Ok, but the author of the photos is the same person. --Nyo 16:42, 24 January 2007 (UTC)


I'm fixing a serious problem. But thanks for you hint. -- Stahlkocher 16:56, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

About the watermark[edit]

Please, excuse me! I simply forgot the little old watermark. I’ll upload again the pictures without my name on it. All right now? Friends? --Nino Barbieri 17:00, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Ratzinger photos[edit]

  • The last versions I uploaded were free, because to make them I used photos already uploaded here. They were only satirical works, and this deletion is a censure. --Nyo 15:55, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

From it.source[edit]

Dear bastique,

You created a "it:template:Delete" on it.source, duplicating the purpose of the original it:Template:Cancella subito. I suppose its utility for foreigner admins, or wise visitors facing vandalisms or spam with no need to know Italian language, so I moulded your template to carbon-copy the official template for speedy deletions. Have I understood your intention? it:Utente:OrbiliusMagister

Yes! We need {{delete}} on every project. Thank you. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 22:49, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

welcome to Telugu Wikipedia[edit]

Dear Mr. Bastique,

Thanks for joining Telugu Wikipedia. WELCOME. We have a customery welcome message in Telugu, which I am skipping because of language problem.

Going a bit nuts with template creation, don't you think? :( {{thanks}}, {{not done}}, what the?? And {{Indefblockeduser}} - we already have {{Blocked User}}.

Creating templates creates the expectation that they must be used. and in our case, translated. so they should be kept to an absolute minimum. --pfctdayelise (说什么?) 11:52, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Image deletion warning Image:Blue_Screen_of_Death.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this image, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue. If the file is up for deletion because it has been superseded by a superior derivative of your work, consider the notion that although the file may be deleted, your hard work (which we all greatly appreciate) lives on in the new file.
In all cases, please do not take the deletion request personally. It is never intended as such. Thank you!

Bastique unblock me[edit]

Hi Bastique, I do not understand what you meant when you gave the reason for blocking me as using the website for religious means. Though I would not not deny writting anything concerning religion, all I did was to add more Bible's facts, Bible names in Igbo and made some spelling corrections on the topics like "Chinkeke" then re-saved it. If you didn't put up the topics like Bible,Chineke,etc there will be no topic to write about. I would like to help build the Igbo wikipedia. I'm sorry if I upset you by not signing in the first place before making any corrections. May be there ought to be something to prevent things like that in the near future. Please unblock me in order to sign up and help do some work.IP Block ID#94.

CheckUser weirdness[edit]

How did user:Cartman02au get checkuser access here?? That is extremely weird. I couldn't find a log entry here or at meta, so I don't know who did it. But this user is not very active here, and there was no Request for Checkuser that I recall (and I think I would recall it). This is somewhat worrying! pfctdayelise (说什么?) 05:37, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Actually I found it. [1] pfctdayelise (说什么?) 05:44, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Image:Flag of the ICRC.svg[edit]

Hello, could you please specify what exactly do you think is incorrect about Image:Flag of the ICRC.svg? --Uwe 17:07, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Well, then the ICRC has hoisted an incorrect version of the logo on top of its HQ building in Geneva, see here. And they are using the incorrect logo on cars, airplanes and buildings. Weird, but whatever. --Uwe 18:04, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
And, after coming home, I've just checked my book collection as I've several books which were published by the ICRC, and which I either bought at the bookshop of the Red Cross museum in Geneva (part of the ICRC HQ complex) or which I ordered directly from the Distribution Sector of the ICRC. Some have the round logo with the acronym beneath it, some have the round logo with the acronym on the right side of the round logo, and one has the round logo with the acronym beneath it printed on the spine of the book and the round logo without any acronym printed on the front cover. Again weird, but whatever. --Uwe 19:15, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

daily-image-l postings[edit]

Hey Bastique,

I just subscribed you to this list (which you would have noticed - but I put you on nomail, so you'll only get the welcome message). I'm going to be out of town Thursday (22nd) to Friday and I need someone to make the posts for me. I did ask Zzyzx11 but he hasn't responded, and since the list is moderated I needed an email to add to be unmoderated, so they could make posts. So that's you. Sorry for the surprise; I hope it's not a big hassle.

You can see what today's post looked like - they are not onerous to put together. Just do that each day and post to the list.

thankyouuuuuuuuuuuu in advance :)

--pfctdayelise (说什么?) 04:40, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

You have got a OTRS permission. Could you tag this pic with correct license (not accessible to me).

Friendly Oxam Hartog 21:57, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Nauruan Wikipedia[edit]

Welcome to the Nauruan Wikipedia, Bastique. I wanted to say the following as well: We have five administrators on the Nauruan Wikipedia — I give in I'm the only one who checks the RC daily, but I suppose this suffices abundantly considering the size of the edition — so we don't need any deletions by stewards (who don't warn the vandals either). Friendly greetings, 12:23, 23 February 2007 (UTC) (na:User:Belgian man)

No problem; maybe I must have had checked whether it was such a case. It's the first time an external (Jon is administrator there) steward deletes something on na:, hence the reaction :) Greetings, 10:58, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hi Bastique,
Thank you for voting in my request for adminship, it has been successful. Sorry for the ammount of time that has passed, I was too side-tracked with helping out using my new privilages.
Thanks once again,
Lcarsdata 18:07, 23 February 2007 (UTC)


Hello Bastique, can you please add the correct license tag to this image? The Flickr source says All rights reserved, we need confirmation that this image is free. Thank you. --GeorgHH 21:30, 23 February 2007 (UTC)



Same thing as above about license.

Sorry for the work. Friendly Oxam Hartog 00:47, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Captchahelp-text/fr update[edit]

Hello Bastique,

May I ask you to use your sysop superpowers to edit this system message ?

User:Sherbrooke has prepared an update on MediaWiki talk:Captchahelp-text/fr. I have read it and I approve. You'll have to remove his small notes which contain explanations of his changes, but are not meant to be displayed in the message.

Thanks for the heads up and sorry for any trouble I might have caused. Are there any images that I have uploaded already that need tags? I'll take another look.

BTW, I sent the permission for Image:Gaspardgfdl.PNG a couple of days ago to commons-permission and I'm not sure if its been accepted yet. Should I send it again?--CyberGhostface 18:50, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

An assessment[edit]

I have been contemplating nominating myself as an admin. I have been on the commons for more than a year, and have more than 2800 edits. Before I officially nominate myself I wanted to get some feedback. Thanks! --Evrik 19:35, 1 March 2007 (UTC)



I am not to fond of this edit. It is discussed here. Bertilvidet 20:37, 1 March 2007 (UTC)



Could you tag this one also. Thanks Oxam Hartog 01:18, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

OTRS volunteering[edit]

Oh, OK, thanks for letting me know. I didn't realise that, as I saw that in her recent Request for Adminship Commons:Administrators/Requests and votes/Kelly Martin Kelly was supported precisely because she was already doing this. I suppose she must be an admin somewhere else. --MichaelMaggs 22:24, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi! I red the message you wrote on my user talk page on hr wiki about the images you were concerned about. I am going to inform some other admins and we are going to take care of them. Thank you for the information!--Donatus 05:56, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Bad user name[edit]

Hi - I see you deleted contributions from that user (no problem with that). So that I learn would you take it that with such a user name the normal "good faith" can be reversed and their contributions be seen as unwelcome? I regret I was a little slow reacting to that one - I am still getting the hang of the multi lingual aspects of Commons I think. Regards --Herby talk thyme 10:00, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks - I'm learning! --Herby talk thyme 12:09, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

SVG files with flowing text[edit]

I just uploaded two SVG files containing floating text, which appears as black slabs when rendered. I looked at the helpdesk page, where another user had the same problem and you fixed it for them. I'd like to know what it was you did to fix the problem, where the problem is described (can't seem to find it anywhere), and what is the correct way to include text in an SVG image. Thanks!

Peterd username[edit]

Hi, I have my own user page with Commons, as well as with en-Wiki and pl-Wiki. Problem is that everywhere but Commons my user name is Belissarius. I would like to change it to be Belissarius in all media. I tried to do so changing datas in my preferences, but it does not work. Could you help me to do such change? I am not asking for instruction but for MATERAL help 'cause I am not very good in administrative operations. Thank you up front. Belissarius, till now Peterd 01:50, 12 March 2007 (UTC)


Hey, You were the first one that popped up on an ActiveUsers search for fr speakers. You think you can help me determine if that copyrightfreeuse tag is legit? Thanks, Yonatanh 19:25, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks ;) Yonatanh 19:56, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
