Greetings and... apologies in advance[edit]

Greetings Billinghurst. Just a quick note to inform you I just created a redirect here Category:Achilleion. Not sure if that's how things get done here at Commons, but I reckon it was better than the dead end left by linking to Commons from here and here. If I've left you with any loose ends that need tying up, please accept my apologies in advance. Cheers! --Technopat (talk) 18:14, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

PS. On previewing this, I've just seen the bit about renaming... my apologies above still stand. Regards, --Technopat (talk) 18:14, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

@Technopat: That would not be the normal approach. I have added a {{category redirect}} so we keep within the same namespace. Thanks for the note, and no need for any apology, we all have had to learn these things.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:28, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for all your patience and help. {ping} db_pakistsn

Reversion Deletion Requests[edit]

Heya, sorry for disturbing you, but I just wondering, if you could remove/hide some reversion files for me? I'll aplogogize in advance for the extra work, but I've uploaded those files at a time, at which I wasn't that familiar with Wikipedia, Wikimedia, etc... so, s...t happens. Here are the files:

  • File:Hafen_Open_Air_2014.jpg (Revision 09:38, 21 October 2014 + 09:34, 21 October 2014 could be removed/hide)
  • File:Cornerstone_Promo.jpg (Revision 08:46, 26 April 2015 could be removed/hide)

Thx in advance! (talk) 10:15, 8 August 2015 (CET+1)

@Morrissey1976: I am trying to understand your request. Is your request to revert back to the original versions of the file, that is the say the first uploaded files, or is your request based on the fact that you were just wishing to removed the intermediate edits. If it is the intermediate edits, then please do not worry about that, they are what they are, and just show the file history, and what exists is quite okay. If you wish to show the original versions of the upload then you can just revert to the initial versions.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:41, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: Ok, so we'll let it be the way it is, I guess. I've dropped you a PM, btw., in regards of an WP-article of mine, would be great, if you could get back to me. Cheers! (talk) 15:50, 10 August 2015 (CET+1)

Modify an edit filter?[edit]

Would you mind tweaking Special:AbuseFilter/122? Right now, it prevents new users from creating anything in the gallery namespace unless the new page includes <gallery>. This prompted an error report at COM:HD because someone was unable to create pram as a redirect to baby car; I've created the redirect, but it seems like it would be more convenient if it were practical to exempt new redirects from this specific filter.

See my comment here. --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:32, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
@Nyttend: Steinsplitter has done so.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:20, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Possible copyright vio[edit]

Hello Billinghurst. I've recently noticed that this user uploaded many images with adding his website as a source. I'm not sure if all those images were published there. However, if that's the case, then the images doesn't have a free licence since the material on the website was licenced under CC BY-NC-ND 3.0. I wanted to inform you so you can delete them if there's really a copyright violation. Thanks. --yabancım 14:35, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Hello Billinghurst and Yabanci

I am the author of the pictures and the website. All the pictures are mine and all of the pictures are free licences for wikipedia, forget about the creative common license because I uploaded the pictures in wikipedia before creating license in my website. I havent uploaded pictures in wikipedia after I have changed the license. If this is a big problem I can delete all of them. Take care — Preceding unsigned comment added by Michisolino (talk • contribs) 11:07, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Commons bot inactivity[edit]

Hello! Your bot has been listed at Commons:Bots/Requests/de-flag 4 as being inactive for over two years. As a housekeeping measure we'd like to remove the bot flag from inactive bot accounts, unless you expect the bot will be operated again in the near future. If you consent to the removal of the bot flag (or do not reply on the deflag page) you can rerequest the bot flag at Commons:Bots/Requests should you need it again. Regards --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:37, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

@Steinsplitter: Sure to remove as I am not expecting to get back to tasks imminently, especially with the evolving of WD. That is not to say that I won't be coming back to bot'ing, though comfortable with a light approval request process. It would be useful if 1) the bot user rights change is so noted, AND, maybe we have a ready means to label the bot account with a user template that can reflect such a change.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:25, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your response, @billinghurst. Our request approval process is much lighter than it used to be, and is quite fast, particularly now that we've got a few bureaucrats who deal with them on a regular basis. I will remove the flag from your bot now, noting that you have agreed to do so; please do feel free to re-apply for the flag when the need arises. Thanks again, odder (talk) 13:58, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
