I had a look at File:NGC253.jpg (following the new article he:NGC 253) and couldn't help noticing that this is a professional image. A short search found its source to be here. It seems to me that this image, as well as other images from the same source that were uploaded by this user, are copyrighted. It's possible that the user is authorized by the observatory to waive the copyright and upload those images to Wikimedia, but still, a credit and a link to the source must be given.
Photo deletion request
In File:Dubbing films in Europe.png, could you translate this new legend into Hebrew? The original uploader from Israel is no longer active in Wikimedia Commons, hence I could not ask this to him or her.
And could you add the Hebrew translation in brackets (Belarus and Slovakia) after the sentence in the violet colored legend?
- Hi A2D2. I will copy your request to our Wikipedia:Graphics Lab see here. I am sorry to tell you that The original uploader ישראל קרול is not alive any more. See here Hanay (talk) 16:30, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

Category:Maps needing South Sudan political boundaries
Can you add South Sudan in the maps File:Hippopotamuses Map Range Hebrew.png, File:African continent WW2 He.jpg, File:AfricaandME WW2 He.jpg, File:Blue nile map-HE.png, File:Hippo distribution-he.gif, File:Unified Combatant Commands map he.svg, File:Swahili-HE.svg as well as in other maps in Hebrew where it is missing (and then remove the Category:Maps needing South Sudan political boundaries after updating them)? Or can you send my request to he.wiki graphic lab?
I am adding South Sudan (as well as Montenegro and other possible missing updates) in the PNG maps in Category:Maps needing South Sudan political boundaries and then remove this category after updating them. There were close to 1100 maps since I started to update these files, now it is reduced to less than 750 maps, but there is a long way to go.
Unfortunately I don't know how to edit SVG maps and complicated PNG maps myself, that is why I asked you.
- EugeneZelenko' Wיhen you add "No permission" tag, please chek carfully. There was not a problem in the picture. Thanks Hanay (talk) 14:14, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

Important message for file movers
A community discussion has been closed where the consensus was to grant all file movers the
suppressredirect user right. This will allow file movers to not leave behind a redirect when moving files and instead automatically have the original file name deleted. Policy never requires you to suppress the redirect, suppression of redirects is entirely optional.
Possible acceptable uses of this ability:
- To move recently uploaded files with an obvious error in the file name where that error would not be a reasonable redirect. For example: moving "Sheep in a tree.jpg" to "Squirrel in a tree.jpg" when the image does in fact depict a squirrel.
- To perform file name swaps.
- When the original file name contains vandalism. (File renaming criterion #5)
Please note, this ability should be used only in certain circumstances and only if you are absolutely sure that it is not going to break the display of the file on any project. Redirects should never be suppressed if the file is in use on any project. When in doubt, leave a redirect. If you forget to suppress the redirect in case of file name vandalism or you are not fully certain if the original file name is actually vandalism, leave a redirect and tag the redirect for speedy deletion per G2.
The malicious or reckless breaking of file links via the
suppressredirect user right is considered an abuse of the file mover right and is grounds for immediate revocation of that right. This message serves as both a notice that you have this right and as an official warning. Questions regarding this right should be directed to administrators. --Majora (talk) 21:35, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
