Hi Odder, I have seen that on 12:11, 18. March 2017 you have demoted User:Rillke from Administrator to a regular user. The global rights log does not give a reason, but I would assume/guess due to inactivity. The same user is also given as the operator of User:CommonsMaintenanceBot, a bot that is blocked for several years now but, as bots are generally not checked for inactivity removal of rights, it is still part of the interface admin and admin user groups (see Even though nothing has happend for quite some years, I would think that it would be appropriate to remove these two rights from the blocked, inactive bot account. Appreciate your thougths. -- Schlurcher (talk) 07:49, 20 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@Schlurcher: I agree completely. I've removed administrator, interface administrator and bot flags from this account, seeing that it's been blocked for over three years now. Thanks for noticing! odder (talk) 09:44, 20 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Please remove autopatroller flag from deceased user. 16:52, 15 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@ This has now been done; the account is also globally locked. odder (talk) 17:17, 15 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Upload request


Could you please upload File:Flag of the United Kingdom (3-5) with removal of Inkscape editor data.svg over File:Flag of the United Kingdom (3-5).svg? It fixes some problems in which the dimensions are not exact, but only approximate, and also removes Inkscape editor data. SVG-image-maker (talk) 17:51, 15 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@SVG-image-maker: This is now done. I had a look at the file's code—well done! Fabulous savings in terms of code size. odder (talk) 23:07, 15 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Another upload request


I was wondering if you could upload File:Flag of Palestine (fixed).svg over File:Flag of Palestine.svg because if you zoom in the the top left of the latter file, you can see that the red triangle is not actually a triangle. SVG-image-maker (talk) 18:03, 15 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@SVG-image-maker: This is also done now. Nicely spotted :-) odder (talk) 23:07, 15 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Vandalizing User


Hi, user Djali08 keeps reverting flags to older versions. Can you please stop them and cancel out their actions? Best regards. Kamran.nef (talk) 23:42, 2 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@Kamran.nef: I've contacted the user on their talk page and asked for an explanation. They however continued reverting more files so I've blocked their account as a precaution. I'll allow them to explain their actions as they can edit their talk page. I'll try to revert their edits tomorrow/in a few hours' time. odder (talk) 00:00, 3 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you so much Kamran.nef (talk) 00:06, 3 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for uploading File:Franciszek Stefczyk - Rolnicze spółki magazynowe.pdf, Don't forget to add a completed {{Book}} template on the file description page for your upload! It helps in providing additional catalog data on Commons, as well as on other projects.

If you could also do this for other 'books' you have uploaded, even better. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 17:01, 22 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Public domain day logo font


Hi! I would like to do a PT-version of the wonderful Public Domain Day logo. I was wondering if you can help me with the font that is used? thanks MariaCurista (talk) 11:27, 30 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @MariaCurista — I'm pretty sure the font is called "Miso". odder (talk) 13:39, 30 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Logo Request


Hello Odder

Please can you help to create Wikipedia Logo for Igala Wikipedia? the translation for Wikipedia the free Encyclopedia is Wikipídiya Úko Aláfà. Thanks as I anticipated your kind response. The link to our project page on wikimedia incubator is AgnesAbah (talk) 08:00, 17 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @AgnesAbah, apologies for the delay in getting back to you on this. I have had some computer problems recently (I dropped my laptop from a height...) but they're now fixed so I should be able to create your logo in the next few days. odder (talk) 16:43, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Really sorry about your laptop and am happy to hear that your laptop is fixed now. Thanks in advance as I anticipate your kind response in creating the logo AgnesAbah (talk) 21:43, 26 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@AgnesAbah: I've now uploaded a new version of File:Wikipedia-logo-v2-igl.svg, please let me know how it looks! I apologise for the delay again — unfortunately my laptop is broken beyond repair but I managed to get the logo done for you. odder (talk) 10:53, 12 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Request to use picture


Dear Tomasz, I'm not sure how to best reach you, but I'd like to ask you for permission to use your picture of the flowers after the Manchester attack on St Ann's square in a book about responses to terrorism. Since it's an academic book, it would also need a "commercial" license (or exception from you in this case). Could you please tell me how to contact you, or perhaps send me an e-mail: the first part is and the second part after the at is Your help would be much appreciated- thank you Jeanine91 (talk) 11:46, 19 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Jeanine91: Wow, I'm very glad to hear that you find my work useful! I've only ever uploaded two pictures of the flower tribute at St Ann's square (1 and 2) and both of these can be used for commercial purposes already. As long as you follow attribution requirements then I'm more than happy for use to make use of either of these pictures in your book :) Thank you, odder (talk) 15:15, 19 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
