Thanks for the work on the poll

Saw this ... thanks! what about just making it start now-nowish but ending it on 31 mar instead of waiting? What about an announce on the pump and wait a day for any last min changes, then go live? Thoughts? Maybe discuss at Commons_talk:Administrators/Requests_and_votes? ... again thanks for the smithing, it was great. ++Lar: t/c 16:48, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

I figured that we should hold off until the Wikimania sitenotice gets taken off; this also gives people time to think. I can make the announcements on the Pump and the mailing list now, and when the current sitenotice is removed, on the sitenotice. 哦,是吗?(О кириллицей) 16:50, 18 March 2008 (GMT)
Yes please. ++Lar: t/c 14:15, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
Please see Commons:Administrators/Requests and votes/Voting Approval Poll/Results discussion for further discussion... I don't think that as things stand now there is a clear path. ++Lar: t/c 19:48, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Your RfB

Hello,

I'm afraid there was no consensus to grant you bureaucrat access at this time, so I archived your RfB request. Thank you for running - SUL has given bureaucrats a bit more of a burden, and I think it will become somewhat worse when it's open to everybody (not just admins), so extra help in the future may be indeed required. I want to take the opportunity to thank you for your work on COM:CHU in particular, it has been nice with an extra helping hand there. I'd just like to ask you to be a bit careful in checking if users have indeed some sort of crosslink to Commons, it has happened a couple of times that they exist and you still ask for crosslink - that could potentially make the requesters more confused or, worst case scenario, angry ;).

I hope you'll see the unsuccessful RfB as an opportunity to work on areas where you have been criticized and not take critics too hard, and of course to continue to help out as usual! Cheers, Patrícia msg 13:12, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

So why have you undeleted this image? -- Cat ちぃ? 13:05, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Bot request

Hi O. Could your bot help me with the formatting of descriptions of the images from Commons:Wikipedia Takes Manhattan? The descriptions in Category:Images from Wikipedia Takes Manhattan by official-ly cool, Category:Images from Wikipedia Takes Manhattan by NewYorkDolls and Category:Images from Wikipedia Takes Manhattan by wikiWHAT are incorrectly formatted. They should look more like the correct descriptions at Category:Images from Wikipedia Takes Manhattan by Sheila and Category:Images from Wikipedia Takes Manhattan by Tony. Basically, the {{WTM}} expression should move from 'Description' to 'Author', the 'Source' should be "Contributed by author(s)", and the 'Date' should be "April 4, 2008"; the {{WTMtag}} expressions should stay where they are, however, in the 'Description' field. Thanks very much.--Pharos 18:32, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Can you delete an image for me?

Image:Img 0784.jpg (an image I mistakenly uploaded before I renamed it) has been tagged with what I thought was a correct speedy tag since February. Could you pull the trigger on it, please? Thanks. —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY] 02:49, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Gone. 哦,是吗?(висчвын) 03:42, 21 April 2008 (GMT)

Deleting Image:Coat of arms of Western Sahara.svg

Why? Why did you delete this image? On the request page for its deletion, there is certainly no consensus to delete it, and I do not see any compelling arguments for deletion. Koavf 02:36, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi, this's an other duplicate of the image and should be deleted, thanks; image:Coat of arms of Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic.svg. --Xiquet 13:44, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
Consensus is not a vote count. 哦,是吗?(висчвын) 01:43, 21 April 2008 (GMT)
Right That does not answer my question. Please give me an answer. Koavf 23:10, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
That was part of my answer. It is obvious that you have interpreted the deletion discussion as a vote count, as there are more keep comments in quantity. However, most of those keeps would not have been as compelling as any delete argument, as they referred to consensus-agreed processes relating to no source and unclear copyright images, international copyright law, and the nature of Commons itself.
  • No source: media like this would have been deleted sooner
  • Unclear copyright: a dispute whether {{PD-ineligible}} was legit was clearly visible
    • The default action to take if media has unclear copyright status is deletion until clear copyright terms can be sourced
  • Nature of Commons: Wikimedia Commons, like any other Wikimedia project, must have content that at least guarantees the rights to use, study, redistribute, and make changes and improvements in any way (unless some project has an exemption doctrine policy)
Few keep arguments presented evidence to sufficiently structure their reasoning. Two keep arguments did provide some structure, but they were refuted by the deletes. If there are any more questions or dissatisfaction, please make an undeletion request. 哦,是吗?(висчвын) 00:48, 23 April 2008 (GMT)

Thanks!

Just a simple thank for the CP user rights. Morgoth666 08:56, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
