|Thanks for the conversation.
I might say more privately but I see that you are not accepting emails. I can follow up with everything on wiki, which probably is best. Since wiki's process does not always communicate gratitude to the extent that short emails sometimes can, I want to be clear that I appreciate the conversation you started.
I am less concerned about any particular case and more concerned that I think similar situations happen routinely. I am not sure how to address these things but I am thinking. Blue Rasberry (talk) 12:49, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
- @Bluerasberry: Gaming the system, noticed because of my AIV work on Wikipedia. Posting this on the Commons VP thread for the record, and my Commons talk page so it's there indefinitely for my own reference. I just noticed on the Veronica Lake talk page how this went down, and I think some safeguards should be in place so it doesn't happen this way again. The original uploader got you to be the one to post to the talk page. In such a situation, the person who contacted you will not be reverted/blocked from that talk page. It falls on your posting, and you did nothing but respond to a request. That loophole needs to be changed so it doesn't happen again. Maile66 (talk) 12:09, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
