Editor0440’s pics[edit]

Hello.
Certainly their filenames are bad, but Commons prefers to delete copyvio in one step, without prior renaming. Look at user_talk:Editor0440. I won’t rename anything of this crap. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 09:51, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

@Incnis Mrsi: I didn't realize they were copyvio, I've been skipping the pages that already had deletion tags. Sorry, --DannyS712 (talk) 09:52, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, you can now share images from Flickr using the UploadWizard, batch-upload up to 500 files with UploadWizard instead of 50 and upload freely licensed audio files in the MP3 format. Thank you. 1989 (talk) 18:52, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

@1989: thanks so much. I'm glad I can finally use VisualFileChange for my group nominations. Thanks for trusting me --DannyS712 (talk) 18:53, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Misused template[edit]

Hi, what is the reason why you marked File:Sharlota 2.jpg with {{No permission since}}? The uploader declared himself as the author, he gave a valid licence as his permission, and the file contains full metadata and the metadata don't collide with the licence. --ŠJů (talk) 02:04, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, I thought that was the template that is used when it is unlikely to be the uploader's own work and confirmation is needed. My apologies - can you help me? What is the right template to use in that case? Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 02:10, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Patroller![edit]

Hi DannyS712,

You now have the Patroller right and may call yourself a patroller! Please take a moment to read the updated Commons:Patrol to learn how Patrolling works and how we use it to fight vandalism.

As you know already, the patrolling functionality is enabled for all edits, not just for new-page creations. This enables us to keep track of, for example, edits made by anonymous users here on Commons.

We could use your help at the Counter Vandalism Unit. For example by patrolling an Anonymous-edits checklist and checking a day-part.

If you have any questions please leave a message on the CVU talkpage or ask for help on IRC in #wikimedia-commons.

Welcome, Dear Filemover![edit]

Commons File mover.svg

Hi DannyS712, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{Rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{Speedy}}. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.

Template editor given[edit]

Commons Template editor.svg
Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted template editor right to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to work with templates. Please consider enabling two-factor authentication for your account. Furthermore, please look at Category:Commons protected edit requests (template protected) occasionally and try to help your fellow Commoners with responding to their edit requests. Thank you.

4nn1l2 (talk) 02:43, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

@4nn1l2: thanks so much. Is it okay if I respond to the edit requests I have open that are still pending? --DannyS712 (talk) 02:46, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
You're welcome. Yes, of course. 4nn1l2 (talk) 02:47, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

Crocus alatavicus[edit]

In what sense was IMG 0488-Crocus alatavicus.jpg a "meaningless or ambiguous name"? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 10:39, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

I found it to be ambiguous/meaningless since the `IMG 0488-` at the start is unrelated to the content as far as I could see. But, I can see why its not the most meaningless file name; in the future, I'll leave such cases alone. Sorry, --DannyS712 (talk) 10:43, 27 August 2019 (UTC)


Code issues in User:DannyS712/common.js[edit]

Hi DannyS712, I am a bored bot (this is kind of a computer program) that is watching the recent changes and tapping buttons like I did now.

Curious about the reason? Possibly not but I will tell you anyway:

  1. You edited User:DannyS712/common.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 1 new esprima issue — the page's status is now having ERRORS. Note that invalid or ambiguous code often has unwanted side effects like breaking other tools for you. If you cannot find out how to fix it, I suggest blanking the page for now.
  3. To help you understanding where the issues are, I have aggregated a report here and now. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask users experienced in javascript writing for help. But do not ask the bot's operators (chronically overwrought) unless you suspect an error of mine. If you prefer not getting spammed by me, you can opt-out reports by adding {{ValidationOptOut|type=all}} to your user page. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!
  1. ERROR: Cannot parse line 13 column 32: Unexpected token >

File move[edit]

Hi DannyS712. Recently, you renamed File:13-08-08-hongkong-by-RalfR-095.jpg to File:"The Masterpiece" in Hong Kong 2013-08-08.jpg. However, there it is request on the file attribution that a rename should not be made. Maybe move it back to its original name? (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 03:04, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

@大诺史: I didn't see that at the time, but looking at it now it says "The name is part of the attribution." - the file name being the same is not a required part of attribution, and the name was completely meaningless - if you want to move it back I'm not going to re-move it, but I don't think it should be reverted. On what grounds can an uploader decide that their files shouldn't be renamed? --DannyS712 (talk) 03:07, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
FR1 states that uploader's request should be honoured unless there is a compelling reason not to. And since I agree with your point, I'm just gonna leave the request there. Thanks for the prompt response. Regards (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 03:14, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know --DannyS712 (talk) 03:27, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

Re. RfA request[edit]

I have nominated you for the administrator rank, because I think that you are a good editor on this wiki. Calvinkulit (talk) 11:25, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

Dear DannyS712, please advise if you agree in this nomination. Commons:Administrators/Requests/DannyS712 --Krd 12:09, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
@Calvinkulit, Krd: thanks, this is a (pleasant) surprise - I'm not sure I'm qualified, but I agree to the nomination --DannyS712 (talk) 15:09, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
