Commons:Deletion requests/File:Triallyl cyanurate.jpg[edit]

Deleted as dup, but File:Triallyl cyanurate2.svg that you noted as the specific replacement has some mistakes. I don't have the ability to do chem svg easily:( DMacks (talk) 02:38, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

The uploader, The Titou, is still active. He may want to fix the structure himself. --Leyo 16:15, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I respons on the talkpage of the picture. --Titou (talk) 18:50, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
I replied there. BTW: Your ping did not reach DMacks, because you made it after having signed. --Leyo 21:35, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Luckily I had watchlisted the image-page:) DMacks (talk) 22:35, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
what? are commons templates like notif or notifinv on wp:fr ?? it means template which workes always (before and after sign :o) {{ping}} seems too rudimentary...--Titou (talk) 05:23, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
The ping needs to be in the same edit as the signature. That wasn't the case. You added the ping later. See mw:Manual:Echo#Technical details for more information. --Leyo 10:46, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Danke für die Unterstützung DiaTrainer (talk) 14:45, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
Danke, DiaTrainer. Dann können die durch eine PNG-Version ersetzten JPG- und GIF-Grafiken gelöscht werden, oder? --Leyo 17:49, 2 November 2015 (UTC)


Leyo Can you cropped?? I only transferrer from Flick. Don't delete, please. Think first. --Gastón Cuello (talk) 23:13, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

I don't have the tools for cropping losslessly, sorry. You may want to add {{crop}} to the images. Even better, crop the images before uploading them to Commons. --Leyo 23:17, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
OK. --Gastón Cuello (talk) 23:27, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Bitte löschen[edit]

Hallo Leyo, leere Kategorien machen keinen Sinn und werden meist gelöscht. Kannst du bitte von mir erstellte Kategorien löschen, bei denen von meiner Seite her nichts mehr kommen wird. Danke.

-- Хрюша ?? 08:00, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

War da gar nie etwas drin? Gibt es keine Dateien (von anderen Benutzern) die in diese Kategorien passen würden? --Leyo 12:16, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Nein, die Kategorien waren von mir erstellt worden, da sie meine Interessensgebiete sind. Dazu ist aber kein anderweitiges Bildmaterial vorhanden. Sonst hätte ich die Löschung ja nicht beantragt. Schau mal, wie lange die Kats verwaist sind. --Хрюша ?? 12:36, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
✓ Done --Leyo 22:53, 23 November 2015 (UTC)


Hallo Leyo,

wie war das eigentlich noch einmal? Sind Privatkategorien ohne User: wie z.B. Category:Joergens.mi zulässig?--Kopiersperre (talk) 11:46, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Klar verboten scheinen sie aktuell nicht zu sein, auch wenn sie in höchstem Masse OMA-untauglich sind. Bei deinem Beispiel sind die Unterkategorien noch schlimmer. In der de-WP sind Benutzerkategorien sofort als solche erkennbar. Mein Vorschlag unter Commons talk:User-specific galleries, templates and categories policy#Notability and the naming of user categories ist leider etwas „versandet“. --Leyo 14:28, 27 November 2015 (UTC)


It's OK, I'll do it :3 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vaccinationist (talk • contribs)

Thank you. I added a link to the other version. --Leyo 21:36, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Violation of Non discrimination policy[edit]

This is a formal warning to ask to stop any violation of Non discrimination policy. Your comment "Sure, when it comes to chemical structures a quick Google search done by truck driver overweights the opinion of a university lecturer in chemistry (last posting). --Leyo 00:29, 5 December 2015 (UTC)" is indeed a clear violation to discriminate a person based on his job or education. Your early comment to call him a "newby admin" (what is it?) is also insulting. Please stop. Jee 01:20, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

It would also work the other way round, i.e. when the topic were trucks in this case. --Leyo 01:32, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
We've a lot of PhD holders working as clerks or other similar generic jobs. There are even many jobless people. So it doesn't mean what a person capable to and what he does to make a living. Sometimes opinion of laymen overweight experts as they may have more exposure to reality. So your comment make less sense in anyway. I wholeheartedly supports Natuur12's arguments. Moreover, here in wikis, people have a right to hide their real life identities. So who knows what a person really is. (My comment is about the words you had chosen to defend your arguments; no opinion on the closing of that DR.) Jee 02:04, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
I have never seen CF being active in the chemistry “area” on Commons. --Leyo 02:08, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
But he is very active in biology; so hope he can make it too. :D (Good night to you too; early morning here.) Jee 02:11, 5 December 2015 (UTC)


Hallo Leyo, scheinbar benutzt du gern die Suchfunktion statt Catscan etc. Hast du zufällig auch die Erfahrung bei der Verwendung von regulären Ausdrücken gemacht, dass diese nicht immer richtig ausgewertet werden? --Arnd (talk) 10:36, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Meinst du so etwas? --Leyo 12:42, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
Genau, danke. --Arnd (talk) 12:45, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Chemical drawings[edit]

Hi, The chemical drawings you nominated for deletion are in use. Could you please replace them by a correct drawing? Thanks, Yann (talk) 16:19, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

I am aware that some of them are in use in the eo.wikipedia. Since the structures are incorrect, the corresponding articles will benefit from the deletion. --Leyo 22:07, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
Another admin just closed "kept: in use" a bunch ( Itriaged them on Commons:WikiProject Chemistry/Deletion requests). I'm on a slow connection tablet while my office is closed for vacation, making it slow to work on wiki. If the images are still poor and their articles would benefit from the images being removed, please remove the image so "even a non-chem admin" should have no problem deleting them. FWIW, I suspect many are also missing attribution data, being derivative works of other commons images (the high res mage of the acid, edited in a lowres editor to insert the sodium sphere, for example). Surely PD-chem but also casts yet another shadow over this pool of files as a whole. DMacks (talk) 21:32, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
As you may have noticed now, I posted on this admin's talk page, too. As I was interrupted during writing, I only read your post after having submitted mine.
I am about to redraw the ones that may be corrected using ChemDraw (e.g. File:Sodium tetrathionate.png). --Leyo 21:43, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
Great! I'll be back to full technology by Friday. Let me know if there is anything I should give priority. DMacks (talk) 22:03, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Thanks and no thanks[edit]

Thank you for removing the double closure. Sometimes DelReqHandler does not correctly display and with similar names it is easy to hit one twice.

I do not, however, much like your snippy comment. As you certainly know, we are absolutely prohibited from deleting files that are in use for quality reasons. I could easily have made a similar snippy comment about your long series of inappropriate DRs. If, in fact, there are better files for all of these, then it would have been up to you to change them all before nominating them for deletion. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:52, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

I disagree. If an image is factually incorrect, this is not the case. Closures against consent in a DR discussion without a comment are not OK. You may want to have a look at Natuur12's talk page. --Leyo 23:59, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Sodium hydrosulfide.png and related DRs[edit]

Under the circumstances, I don't think you need to reopen these -- just delete the files and add a note why you did so. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:25, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. I feel more comfortable to have the closer done by a different admin (i.e. not me as the nominator). --Leyo 20:20, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Löschung eines gemeinfreien Bilds[edit]

Hallo Leyo,

mir wurde die Datei Busto di Paolo V.jpg gelöscht, die eine fotografische Abbildung der Büste Pauls V. von Gian Lorenzo Bernini ist. Bernini starb 1680, womit die Abbildung gemeinfrei ist. Würdest du sie mir bitte wiederherstellen?--Kopiersperre (talk) 12:44, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Die Begründung war „Marking as possible copyvio because Bogus PD rationale. This is a recent photograph. The photographer obviously hasn't been dead for 100 years.“, also bezogen aufs Foto. --Leyo 14:21, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
@Kopiersperre: generell gilt bei 3D-Objekte ein extra Copyright für den Fotografen, du brauchst also eine Erlaubnis oder fotografierst selbst. Das ist allerdings eher zu bezweifeln da Museen sogar gerne auf 2D-Objekte ein Copyright haben würden (und hier letztes Jahr einen Streit gab). HGZH User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)  14:40, 6 January 2016 (UTC)


You can't remove proposals from an RfC, particularly not when all proposals being made have been summarily rejected, so one going in the opposite direction is the only way forwards. Adam Cuerden (talk) 21:40, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

I disagree, but at least (i) make it more understandable (I'm not sure what it's about), (ii) format it in a consistent way. By the way, you misunderstood question 1, probably because some other users before were unable to differentiate among the questions. They are not directly related. --Leyo 21:51, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
The key phrase in my oppose is "As worded". I think that something like it might be supportable, but it's more of an idea than a coherent proposal as yet, and probably would be misapplied a lot. I think what you're really looking for isn't about user categories at all: It's about disambiguation, and we could probably borrow that from the article disambiguation advice of any Wikipedia, and apply it to categories without issue. Adam Cuerden (talk) 22:08, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
The aim of the first question is to get rid of misleadingly named categories as the ones I've given as examples. IMHO the most important user group is the readers (people using Commons as resource of freely usable media). Avoiding such category names assists them in finding what they are looking for. --Leyo 22:15, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
I've done an alternate phrasing in the current last section of the RfC. I agree all those categories are inappropriate. +You may feel free to edit my suggestion for clarity and to break up the examples. Adam Cuerden (talk) 22:45, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for phrasing your proposal more clearly. I somehow like “Use of the User: prefix in categories”, but I'd suggest to make a modification: “User:Username” needs to be contained in user category names except if the real name (for artists maybe also their pseudonym/stage name) is contained instead. --Leyo 23:22, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
I don't disagree, but I'm worried people might object. I think it might be best to go with two options, and see which is supported. Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:56, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
Despite of making the RfC even longer, I added my suggestion as option B. I hope this is fine with you. --Leyo 00:25, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Duplicates or replaced by...[edit]

Hello Leyo, when you nominate an old file for deletion (old=not recent upload), can you create a redirect after the deletion or ask in the DR to the closing administrator he create it, please?. It's because a lot of my colleagues forget to do that however it is written in our Commons:Deletion policy#Duplicates policies. It is to avoid broke the potential hotlinks if the file is used on the web. This is not a big job but necessary. Thanks you. Regards, Christian Ferrer (talk) 06:24, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi Christian. I am sorry, but I disagree. Commons:Deletion policy#Redundant/bad quality applies here. Especially for images that are ineligible for copyright (i.e. in the PD) I oppose creating redirects. --Leyo 13:41, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
It is then a lack in the policy as it say "(...) you will need to replace all instances where the image is used with the superior file." Sadly we can not replace the file when it is used with hotlinks in the Web. The same principle should apply for all old files, redundant or duplicates, as both can be used as well on the web when they are old. Christian Ferrer (talk) 19:03, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
The policy refers to WMF projects. It is a really bad practice to redirect from one file type to a completely different one. Only in the case of license issues, this may be an option. --Leyo 21:51, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
Well I don't insist, thanks for explanations. Regards, Christian Ferrer (talk) 06:02, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

File renames[edit]

Hi Leyo,

Could you please take a look at Nagelfar's remame requests? Thanks in advance! Natuur12 (talk) 22:49, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

It seems that I am too late. They were all moved by Edgar181, who is the uploader anyway. --Leyo 11:44, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
