Hi. Thanks for formatting the description. As for en:Image:Prambanan.jpg, given that the user says in the description that he owned the copyright and releases it under GFDL, can we simply tag it as GFDL-self? (I think there was no template called GFDL-self back then). -- Sundar 03:21, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Sounds good to me; see Image:Prambanancomplex.jpg. ЭLСОВВОLД talk 14:42, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Trusted user promotion

Hi. As a result of your request at Commons talk:Flickr images/reviewers, Rocket000 have added you to the reviewers list. Please see the instructions at Commons:Flickr images/reviewers and add {{user trusted}} to your userpage. You can ask me, or Rocket000 if you need any help. Best regards, --Kanonkas(talk) 10:59, 22 May 2008 (UTC)


Hi, see Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard#User_uploading_copyrighted_material_despite_warning- this user's images were previously deleted, he then uploaded them to Flickr AFTER they were deleted so there is no doubt he is lieing and all the images should be speedy deleted.

Elcobbla, are you interested in adminship? You've done a lot more (and a lot better) work than when I got the tools, and I think you'd be great - your work here and at EnWP FAC has shown that images are really a forte of yours.

What do you say? giggy (:O) 03:12, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Sure, if you think I have a chance, I'd be glad to give it a go. ЭLСОВВОLД talk 03:24, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
Cool, I'll start writing. giggy (:O) 04:07, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
Now at Commons:Administrators/Requests and votes/Elcobbola. Sign your acceptance and transclude to Commons:Administrators/Requests and votes when ready. Good luck! giggy (:O) 04:18, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

o hay

No, you didn't. "Protip" means something akin to "here's a hint". In this case, Mutter Erde is opposing every RfA where the nominated person supported the deletion of Susan.jpg, using the strawman argument that we all wanted to see it gone because she's "too old". That is what the "too young" was about. Good luck. Lewis Collard! (lol, internet) 02:59, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Elcobbola, congratulations! You now have the rights of administrator on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard and Commons:Deletion requests), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons @ Also consider joining #wikimedia-admin, the cross-wiki coordination channel for Wikimedia administrators. Any member of the channel can invite you in temporarily, but you need an invite exemption from a channel operator to get in whenever you want. Please come to #wikimedia and ask for an invite. Any admin from any project is welcome.

You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading.

Please also check or add your entry to the List of administrators and the related lists by language and date it references....
