TUSC token 211033b1711e51385fa1da3b5f03b199[edit]

I am now proud owner of a TUSC account!


I'm writing to you because you're a sysop on commons. Can you please PLEASE take care of this report in "Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/Vandalism"? I opened the same request in "Commons:Administrators' noticeboard" (Other) but it's been ignored for so long by sysops that a bot archieved it and the vandal I'd reported has waited for that to restart editing. I'm waiting for your intervention, thank you in advance! 2A01:7C8:AAAE:2B3:49DF:8C78:3C94:3FB 08:39, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Note to self: Referred to Steinsplitter at Taivo's talk page. De728631 (talk) 14:26, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
As I wrote there, I can't write on his talk page because it's protected, so I pinged him twice, but he didn't answer. Could you please write there in my place to ask him to read what I wrote in Taivo's talk page? I hope this isn't against rules...

OK, I have asked Steinsplitter about investigating the issue. De728631 (talk) 15:29, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks :-)

More unruly comments[edit]

noticed more obscene edit summaries on this file also. Olsen24 (talk) 06:45, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

Notification of suspension[edit]

For overuse of deletions, you have made admin policy useful. Your access to administrator tools have been suspended for the 1st of April.

Best regards, Artix Kreiger (talk) 14:47, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

@Artix Kreiger: Oh dear, how am I supposed to delete all the April Fools Day jokes? As everybody knows, admins are notoriously grumpy and despise any form of humor, so jokes are considered vandalism. De728631 (talk) 16:25, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

De Havilland Canada DHC-8-400[edit]

I see that on a large number of these files you have deleted Category:Aircraft by registration and replaced it with Category:De Havilland Canada DHC-8-400 by registration (using tag-a-lot). This is not in line with normal practice. These files should in fact have both categories in place. This is the norm for every other aircraft type, as I understand it, to preserve Category:Aircraft by registration as a complete list of aircraft. Could you please revert your changes or preferably re-insert Category:Aircraft by registration in the files. Ardfern (talk) 09:53, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

@Ardfern: I'm sorry but you're wrong on this. Category:Aircraft by registration urgently needs some diffusion because it is overpopulated, and Category:De Havilland Canada DHC-8-400 by registration like other such categories is a subcategory of "Aircraft by registration". Per our category policy, overcategorisation occurs when an item is categorised into one category and one of its parent categories at the same time. This has to be avoided, and therefore aircraft should never be in the general "by registration" category and in a category for registration by type, too. De728631 (talk) 13:40, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
In the normal course of categorisation I would agree with you, but Category:Aircraft by registration (now with some 77k files), seems to have been deliberately left like this (at least over the 10 years I have been doing aircraft categorisation) so that you can see just how many aircraft registrations have been accumulated in total. I would suggest you take this up with the WikiProject Aviation people for discussion. I think it would need some agreement before such a long-standing category is diffused. Ardfern (talk) 16:23, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
The diffusion started the day the first subcategories by type were created. And I don't see how local consensus could possibly trump a Commons policy. If an exception to the rule were to be allowed it should be discussed at Commons talk:Categories. De728631 (talk) 16:28, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
I have now started a discussion at Commons talk:Categories and also notified the aviation project of it. De728631 (talk) 16:47, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
