Thanks[edit]

Thank for the speedy request, missed the .jpg .png difference. Screwed up :(. -- Cheers, Taketa (talk)

It´s a fundamental human right to make mistakes... :-) The only annoying thing is that the commons admins are as quick as tortoises. On dewiki, this speedyrequest would be executed in seconds! --FalconL ?! 13:46, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

File:Roger Joseph Boscovich, bust.jpg[edit]

I appreciate the rename, but its naming scheme is now different from everything I've uploaded thus far, so I'd be far happier with the originally proposed "File:Roger Joseph Boscovich 20080225 0479" (or make it "File:Roger Joseph Boscovich bust 20080225 0479", for that matter). I've taken thousands of images overall, and at least two more images of the bust in question on the same day, so a slightly more elaborate scheme makes sense to me. Cheers, Branko Radovanović (talk) 19:28, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

As suggested, I moved it to File:Roger Joseph Boscovich bust 20080225 0479.jpg, leaving behind a redirect at File:Roger Joseph Boscovich, bust.jpg. Cheers, FalconL ?! 13:14, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

File:IMF WEO CAB as %GDP.jpg[edit]

Thank you for the speedy renaming, but I made a mistake: the right name should be "IMF WEO CAB as percentage of GDP.jpg" (with an initial I that is now absent). Please rename it; thanks again.--Carnby (talk) 12:42, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks; I also missed this little mistake. Regards, FalconL ?! 12:45, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Renamed file objection[edit]

Hi FalconL. This is to remind you that you should follow the renaming guidelines when moving files. The following move does not appear to be in accordance with the guidelines: [1] Reason: Commons:File renaming#What files should not be renamed?. If you disagree with the this note, disregard it and let me know your reason. Thanks, --ZooFari 05:30, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

I think it´s OK because the old title File:Neustadt.jpg isn´t very describingful (it´s the name of the whole town, while the picture shows only a railway station (german: "Bahnhof")) . In addition, there are many, many "Neustadt"´s all over Germany, so the suffix "Sachsen" helps identifying which one it is. If such renames aren´t common practice, I´m sorry for it. I´m a relatively new file mover. The guidelines (which I of course already had red) aren´t clear enough about such renames, I guess.
If you disagree with my opinion, please write again. I´ll try to avoid such "grey area" renames in the future. --FalconL ?! 09:44, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
Actually I noticed the page does not mention about such renames, so I've made a note on the talk page about whether these renames should be allowed. I agree that the page is not so specific, so I'll let you know what others think about such renames. You can disregard this note for now. --ZooFari 15:28, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

A file to be moved[edit]

If you want to do something, move File:Garten pflanze 16.JPG as described there. --Der Messer (talk) 07:48, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

Done. But it would be good idea to give a reason when requesting {{rename}}´s. --FalconL ?! 11:12, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

File:Dwornisco Zicen.JPG[edit]

Hallo! Bitte verschiebe mein Bild wieder zurück auf den von mir gewählten Namen. Ich sehe nicht, mit welchem Recht und welcher Begründung du meine Namensgebung übergehst. Ich nenne meine Bilder so, wie es mir passt. Danke und Grüße, j.budissin+/- 08:54, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Ich habe diese Verschiebung nur deshalb durchgeführt, weil sie von User:Sandmann4u beantragt wurde und ich an seiner Begründung ("Offizieller Name") nichts auszusetzen hatte. Da du der Uploader des Bildes bist und den alten Namen für geeignet zu halten scheinst, nehme ich die Verschiebung zurück. Bitte beachte, dass ich mit der Verschiebung keinesfalls Kritik an dir üben wollte. Diese Verschiebung war für mich einfach nur eine von vielen, die wöchentlich anfallen. Für weitere inhaltliche Diskussionen über den Lemmatitel könntest du dich vielleicht auch an besagten Sandmann4u wenden, da ich in diesem Fall nur das ausführende Organ war. Wenn du möchtest, stehe aber natürlich auch ich für weitere Diskussion zur Verfügung. Grüße, FalconL ?! 15:16, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
Nachtrag: Ich kann die Verschiebung momentan leider nicht rückgängig machen, da Sandmann4u dankenswerterweise auf das alte Lemma einen SLA gestellt hat und somit der Seite eine neue History verschafft hat, was mich als Nicht-Admin am Verschieben hindert. Für die Rückverschiebung müsste ich also zuerst wieder einen SLA stellen, der sicherlich auf verwunderte Rückfragen stoßen würde und somit erheblichen bürokratischen Aufwand bedeuten würde. Deshalb frage ich dich: Legst du sehr wert auf die Rückverschiebung? Falls ja, würde ich sie natürlich in die Wege leiten, aber ich wäre auch froh, wenn ich es nicht müsste. Grüße, FalconL ?! 15:21, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
Danke für deine Antwort. Ich stehe momentan mit Sandmann und 32X als Admin in Kontakt, du musst dir also keine großen Gedanken darum machen. Auf den ersten Blick hatte es so ausgesehen, als sei es deine Entscheidung gewesen, also entschuldige bitte meinen etwas ruppigen Ton in der Anfrage. Mir geht es hier allerdings auch ums Prinzip, daher werde ich auf einer Rückverschiebung bestehen. Ich sehe es nicht ein, weshalb es Sandmann für nötig erachtet, Bildtitel ändern zu lassen, nur weil sie ihm nicht genehm sind. Zum Glück bin ich da nicht der Einzige, wenn ich mir seine Diskussionsseite ansehe. Grüße, j.budissin+/- 15:54, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
Ja, Sandmann hat in den letzten Tagen ein regelrechtes Flooding mit rename-Anträgen durchgeführt, die größtenteils strittig waren. Er scheint es allgemein mit den Lemmata übertrieben genau zu nehmen. Zwar war er es, der die Anfrage gestellt hat, aber trotzdem entschuldige auch ich mich für die mangelnde Überprüfung, denn das ist ja eigentlich die Hauptaufgabe von uns filemovern. Vor dem Hintergrund des Verhaltens von Sandmann kann ich deinen Wunsch um Rückverschiebung nachvollziehen. Jedoch wäre ich dir dankbar, wenn du das direkt mit 32X oder einem anderen Admin regeln könntest. Grüße, FalconL ?! 16:08, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
kleine Info: User talk:Sreejithk2000#File renaming - daher bitte Commons:Dateien verschieben#Commons:Dateien verschieben beachten. Sandmann4u scheint da eine eigene Art der Auslegung zu haben ...Sicherlich Post 09:17, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Only Image-reviewers and Administrators are allowed to review files! --FalconL ?! 09:38, 16 April 2011 (UTC)[edit]

I just see a "FlickrFixr ok other bad" link on that page , as i know the license given was correct , i clicked it . And if i wish to review the license(reviewer) ,what should i do.Thank you. -- Raghith (talk) 09:49, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Hm, the only thing you could do is to wait until any reviewer or admin reviews the files - This is usually done in a few days. Regards, FalconL ?! 09:55, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I requested for a "reviewer" status. Will you help me out there . Thank you.

File:Eilenburg Bahnhof RE-Zug.jpg[edit]

Bildbezeichnung ist irreführend, da das Bild so gut wie nichts vom Bahnhof zeigt, im Gegensatz zu der von mir in den Dateinamen eingetragenen Lokomotive und dem Zug. Wo ist also das Problem? --Sandmann4u (talk) 12:50, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Das Lemma ist imho nicht sonderlich irreführend, da ausdrücklich "RE-Zug" darin steht. Selbstverständlich ist dein Name besser, aber die Umstände erfordern keine Verschiebung. Ich denke, du wurdest schon häufig genug auf die Renaming guidelines hingewiesen... --FalconL ?! 07:36, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Und ich bleibe bei dem, was ich bereits mitgeteilt habe. In den von euch allen so of zitierten renaming guidelines, steht nichts davon, so schwammige Dateinamen nicht präzisiert werden sollen/dürfen. Ja, ich habe mir diese durchgelesen. Das wichtige ist weiterhin, dass das die Zahl 143 für die Baureihe nicht vorkommt, spezifischer die Loknummer.Sandmann4u 11:46, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Alexander Garnaev[edit]

I fully agree that "let's assume it is" is nowhere near good enough, but I had to put something in to replace the licensing information that applied to the photo of a village in Poland. DS (talk) 14:48, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I fully understand that. But I think somebody with more knowlegde should check it - for legal reasons. Regards, FalconL ?! 14:52, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Move...[edit]

... File:187_Selbstbildnis_blau._1958.jpg => File:187_Hans_Faehnle_Selbstbildnis_blau._1958.jpg, danke. :-) --Der Messer (talk) 15:27, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

✓ Done --FalconL ?! 16:04, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks...[edit]

...for moving Schreibtisch eines Philologen.jpg, and beg your pardon for the meaningless file name! My finger was faster than my brain, I aestimate... --Die.keimzelle (talk) 15:49, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Kein Problem! Grüße, FalconL ?! 16:22, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
Uuhh, and if I had read your discushionpeach before writing, I wouldn't have had to break me one up in English. You see, I am one of the furpiletest here... Nothing for ungood! Yours Die.keimzelle (talk) 08:43, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
