Mr.chickenchaser![edit]

In my opinion it's not worth the trouble to warn vandals like Mr.chickenchaser. I've taken care of the problem. Thanks though. ~MDD4696 04:46, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

No problem. -- Mentifisto 04:55, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Er, you just need to explain in the edit summary why you removed that content. -- Mentifisto 22:50, 24 November 2009 (UTC)
I hope an administrator will explain that to you. Have you checked the categories? Be honest !! 92.230.92.38 22:58, 24 November 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I admit the categories look like they've got nothing to do with the image, so I reverted it, but as I said, explaining it in the edit summary is the best whenever you edit anything. -- Mentifisto 23:04, 24 November 2009 (UTC)
You should first think, before you are doing anything here. But giving that note on my disc is impertinent. Do do that again. Good night. 92.230.92.38 23:24, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Image licensing[edit]

File:Windbreaker Adidas.jpg just showed up on en.wikipedia and I see you reviewed it. I'm curious: Although the Flickr image claims to be Creative Commons, the original source is not Flickr and doesn't seem to give any indication of a free license. The name of the Flickr uploader is not the same as the Etsy merchant, and they don't even appear to be in the same country (snappyfishvintage is in Vancouver, BC, and BitchBuzz is in Kingston Upon Thames in the UK). Is there some publicly verifiable indication that the Flickr uploader has the rights to the image? Thanks! Kafziel (talk) 17:27, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

No, not that I know of. :-S All those hundreds of uploads must be incorrectly licensed as cc-by, then. I'm not sure what's usually done on Flickr if anything to fix mislabelling. -- Mentifisto 17:42, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure either. I'm always leery of Flickr for just that reason. Anyway, thanks very much for the quick action. Kafziel (talk) 18:21, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Descriptions[edit]

Please write descriptions that actually describe the image in a useful manner. When you do stuff like you did at File:Slightly far away.jpg, you create a lot of unnecessary detective work for someone else. If it hadn't been for the clue in the name of File:Dunn fell radar station.jpg that you also uploaded I wouldn't have stood a chance. - Jmabel ! talk 04:12, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

I would, but I'm not sure about most of the subjects' specifics. :-| -- Mentifisto 05:38, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Also, thanks for your help there. -- Mentifisto 05:41, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Speedy delete a talk page?[edit]

Hi I see you added a Speedy tag to a Talk Page? Surely all that's needed is to revert the vandalism? SiGarb (talk) 16:56, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

If I remember correctly it was the only revision available, and deleting a page is more 'proper' than just blanking. -- Mentifisto 04:15, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Template[edit]

Grazie per la segnalazione, ne ho preso subito nota!

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

Mentifisto, congratulations! You now have administrator rights 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 on irc.freenode.net. There is also a channel for Commons admins, which may be useful for more sensitive topics, or coordination among administrators:#wikimedia-commons-admin.

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.

Congratulations! —Dferg (disputatio) 17:14, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! -- Mentifisto 19:40, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

File:Eclairage.png[edit]

Please don't delete these kind of files. You probably noticed the message Error creating thumbnail: Invalid thumbnail parameters or PNG file with more than 12.5 million pixels. That's because we currently don't render images more than 12.5 million pixels because of performance issues, but we might do that in the future. Multichill (talk) 14:04, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Certainly; my mistake. -- Mentifisto 14:29, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for removing my image.[edit]

Thank you very much for removing my image so quickly and before I get any copyvio warning, I was just on Commons:Administrators' noticeboard to ask them to remove it fast. thanks again, merry christmas and happy holidays. LiveChocolate (talk) 20:32, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

You're welcome. -- Mentifisto 20:59, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

File:Mini-islands.jpg[edit]

Do you have a location for this photo please? Knowing where it is of would make it a lot more useful! - Thanks, MPF (talk) 01:13, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

I updated it with the information. :-) -- Mentifisto 00:18, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

We need your help at the Wikiproject medicine[edit]

Rod of asclepius.png

Hello, Sorry for spaming your talk page, but this is very important. On the behalf of the Wikiproject medicine at the en.wikipedia, I am inviting you to be a part of the discussion going on the project's talk page about Patient images, The discussion started after I obtained a permission to more than 23000 dermatology related images, and about 1500 radiology images. As some editors of the Wikiproject medicine have some concerns regarding the policy of using patient images on wikipedia, and regarding patient consents. Also they believe that common's policy is not so clear regarding the issue. And since you are the experts please join us at this very important discussion -- MaenK.A.Talk 14:23, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for everything that you did on Commons and the support that you gave me! --The Evil IP address (talk) 17:59, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

New Page Patrol - Maria jose merida peña[edit]

If you delete a new page, it is removed from the New Page Patrol log automatically. If you move it, it is not, and, since the page no longer exists, it will remain in the log until someone recreates it, marks it patrolled, and then deletes it. The easy solution is leave behind the redirect and then delete the redirect....      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 10:43, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Ah, thanks for doing it. It would be better if this is fixed somehow, though, since redirect suppression can be useful... -- Mentifisto 00:01, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

Deletion requests[edit]

Hello!

Please close deletion requests of images that you have deleted orderly: File:Jjr1.jpg. Thanks in advance. --High Contrast (talk) 16:53, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Done (I hope you didn't mind my speedy deletions). -- Mentifisto 22:10, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Clean snow[edit]

I'd like to let you know that I've decided to place the photo Clean_snow.jpg on the front cover of the action-adventure novel that I've written. With that in mind, I want to ask you your real name so I can attribute you properly on the copyright page, as I'm required to do by the terms of the Creative Commons license. (If you'd rather not give me that info, I can still credit you as "Wikipedia user Mentifisto", but I think that would be out of place). Thanks! -- Danny 67.169.177.176 06:56, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

@Danny, you should not urge another user to publicly disclose his real name. Better offer him an opportunity to contact you or contact him directly per email from his userpage. --Túrelio (talk) 07:08, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Hi Danny, feel free to use my username (if you don't mind). -- Mentifisto 14:29, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Thanks for deleting a page I nominated. Can you please check if we can apply speedy deletion to this file too and delete it? Reason is given below the template, in practice it's a mistake. --Elitre (talk) 15:17, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

It was a valid reason, yes. -- Mentifisto 15:43, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
Thank you so much. --Elitre (talk) 15:48, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Protection of Template:2010POTY[edit]

Hi, is it a joke to protect the incomplete manual for the 2010POTY? The manual is fatally incomplete: if your browser does not automatically add your name, you are stuck! In german version (as main-template-version is not editable) I addet point 4 as follows: if your name does not appear on the list automatically, follow the instructions (mentioned with link) to add it manually. Can you please give free again the main template - or tell anyone who has editing-rights to add the solution to that problem in all versions! Thanks --ProloSozz (talk) 12:00, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

It's only semi-protected, and from what I can see you are auto-confirmed. Are you sure you can't edit it? (What kind of message do you get?) -- Mentifisto 17:00, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
ProloSozz, what you want is not edit that template (which you can, btw, because is only semiprotected). What you want is edit Template:2010POTY/Finalistsheader/en to add the 4th point who is here Template:2010POTY/Finalistsheader/de. That you can do because none of those pages are protected. Best regards, Béria Lima msg 17:27, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
If I remember correctly, I could not edit it - or I could edit it, but there was nothing to edit, just a referrer to another template - and I am told that it is (fully) protected. I edited the german template - where I am told not to edit the german template, but to edit here ... After editing german template, it did not show my changes. Very confusing and very obscure where to edit what ... But for now it is fixed, and there are the instructions to the workaround of the problem I had. ... PS: it was me to have added the 4th point in the german version (but it was not visible)! --ProloSozz (talk) 20:51, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Documentation for gadget authors[edit]

I saw you had done some work on a gadget. We are trying to start a library for gadget authors to use. Please check it out and post any questions or comments there. -- MarkAHershberger(talk) 17:41, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Code issues in User:Mentifisto/common.js[edit]

Hi Mentifisto, I am a bored bot (this is kind of a computer program) that is watching the recent changes and tapping buttons like I did now.

Curious about the reason? Possibly not but I will tell you anyway:

  1. You edited User:Mentifisto/common.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 3 new jshint issues -- the page's status is now having ERRORS. Note that invalid or ambiguous code often has unwanted side effects like breaking other tools for you. If you cannot find out how to fix it, I suggest blanking the page for now.
  3. To help you understanding where the issues are, I have aggregated a report here and now. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask users experienced in javascript writing for help. But do not ask the bot's operators (chronically overwrought) unless you suspect an error of mine. If you prefer not getting spammed by me, you can opt-out reports by adding {{ValidationOptOut|type=all}} to your user page. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!

De-adminship warning[edit]

This talk page in other languages:

Deutsch | English | español | français | italiano | 한국어 | മലയാളം | português | português do Brasil | +/−

Dear Mentifisto, I am writing to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section/Feb-Mar 2015 within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

You can read the de-admin policy at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship.

Thank you, odder (talk) 20:49, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
