Připomenutí: Dožeňte své staré resty![edit]

Dobrý den / ahoj! Připomínám, že již od půlnoci začíná běžet soutěžní kampaň Dožeňte své staré resty!. Potrvá celých 24 hodin, takže můžete / můžeš využít jakoukoliv část dne k nahrávání nejméně dva měsíce starých fotografií spadajících do některé ze tří kategorií. Věřím, že své fotografické archivy máte / máš už připraveny! V průběhu dne bude také na stránce akce možnost sledovat aktuální stav – nahrané fotografie i žebříček účastníků – vše automaticky generované. Případné dotazy a připomínky směřuj(te) do diskuze. A pokud se nacházíte / nacházíš v Brně, lze využít i příležitosti k účasti na osobním nahrávacím setkání s dalšími účastníky na uvedeném místě. Přeji příjemnou zábavu a pro Wikimedia Commons spoustu nových cenných fotek, které by tam už jinak nikdy nemusely najít cestu!

Renaming[edit]

Hi, I had a look at File:"Přílet čápa" .jpg for which you requested a rename. When I checked the original title in Google Translate, it indicated that the title said, "Stork's arrival," and the requested rename translated as "Welcoming square" which didn't sound very distinctive (plus I wasn't sure if I saw a square in the image). As I do see a stork in the image, I thought that the current title was more distinctive and accurate, so I decided to keep it. But if there is another pressing reason that the file should be renamed, please let me know. Thanks so much! Mabalu (talk) 13:39, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

@Mabalu: The reason is that the translation isn't accurate. Proposed name „Vítání_náves“: Vítání is the name of the village (it also means „welcoming“ in Czech) and náves means „village green“ in Czech. However, we can keep the „stork“ in the name, so the name would be „Vítání_náves_přílet_čápa“ or so. Best regards. — Draceane talkcontrib. 14:23, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
Rename done - thanks for explaining further. Mabalu (talk) 14:38, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Filemover![edit]

Commons File mover.svg

Hi Draceane, 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.

Original name[edit]

Please take care of such move summaries. This city’s original name is Theutonici de Epuryes (according to the enwiki article), as the official language was Latin in the 13th century. Its official name is Prešov since the signing of the Trianon Treaty in 1920. I don’t have any anger because of your summary, but some Hungarian users may have. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 11:18, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

@Tacsipacsi: OK, I know a bit about that history. The meaning was „current name in country's official language“ (because I think that names of Commons files should be expectable) and edit summary might have be more precise. Regards — Draceane talkcontrib. 11:36, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
OK. (I haven’t argued with the move itself—furthermore, I do think it’s better to have official names for coats of arms, and the half-English, half-Hungarian name looked terrible—, only the summary.) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 16:45, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

User:Jakub Šilhavý[edit]

Hi Draceane, is the above an account of yours? --Jotzet (talk) 11:20, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

@Jotzet: Hi Jotzet, this is account of my friend. He asked me for a little help with uploading photos to Commons. Regards. — Draceane talkcontrib. 15:01, 2 September 2018 (UTC)
