Photos[edit]

Wondering if you had the opportunity next time you were in Colombo Fort to take some photos of the Grand Oriental Hotel? Dan arndt (talk) 05:50, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Hey. Sure, I'll try. Do you have the coordinates for that? Rehman 12:08, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
Great work with your recent photos - great value for money. The co-ordinates of GOH is 6.937421 N, 79.845157 E (2 York Street cnr Church Street). Dan arndt (talk) 04:37, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Dan arndt :) Dammit I forgot about this hotel... I have a few more places to cover (such as Achilleion). Will add it to that list, and update that list to UGLK as well. Cheers! Rehman 22:02, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Whilst you are out & about could you take some photos of St. Peter's Church, its right next door to GOH at 26 Church Street(Coordinates: 6°56′15″N 79°50′41″E). So good to have someone who is able to take photos of these sites. Unfortunately most of mine are of tourist sites which there appears to be good coverage on Commons. I'll have to make arrangements for another trip back to Sri Lanka. Dan arndt (talk) 04:37, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
Hello Dan. Hope you're doing well. My apologies, as I don't believe I have responded to your last message. Just want to keep you updated that I still have the three places marked to be visited; I haven't forgotten about it. :) Happy Sinhala/Tamil New Year to you! Cheers, Rehman 06:56, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

The WikiProject Council[edit]

Hello 👋🏻 Rehman,

I saw that you are a former member of the WikiProject Council but that there currently aren’t any active members to approve new proposals, do you know where I should bring my proposal now?

Sent 📩 from my Microsoft Lumia 950 XL with Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile 📱. --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) ("The Chinese Coin Troll" 👿) (Articles 📚) 08:49, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi Donald Trung. My apologies for not being able to give a definitive answer at this moment, but you could start by discussing the same at the corresponding WikiProject in your local wiki. Once you have enough users willing to run it, you could be bold and create the project. I believe listing the project for approval at this moment would be a waste of time, as there is no one to review. Alternatively, you could also start a discussion at the VP as see how it goes. Cheers, Rehman 13:33, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

BSicons exÜWBl and exÜWBr[edit]

Sorry, I should have explained in the SD notices. All of the current uses of both redirects are in template-generated rows of images in the Commons gallery, userspace and Wikipedia space, which CommonsDelinker can't replace (as only part of the titles are in the wikitext). Since I was going to move the current redirect targets to the titles currently occupied by the redirects, there would be no visual change. Could you delete the redirects? Thanks, Jc86035 (talk) 11:44, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi there. Thanks for your message. I will do the needful. Rehman 14:27, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Alphatest of FileImporter extension[edit]

Hi Rehman,

it was great to meet you on Friday! We discussed the FileImporter extension, and this is me sharing the link with you where we are looking for feedback :)

You can find all info on meta:WMDE_Technical_Wishes/Move_files_to_Commons#Testing_an_alpha_version_of_the_feature

Thank you for your feedback! Lea Voget (WMDE) (talk) 12:55, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi Lea. It was a pleasure meeting you too! Thank you for the link, I will go through it in detail once I get back home. :-) Best regards, Rehman 16:34, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Re:[edit]

Sure, no problem! Thanks for taking pics, hope you had a good time like I did. Best, Elitre (talk) 09:17, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

I got a note on my page and i am so ignorant of wike really but trying my best. I wanted the old photo taken off as i have recent better and more interesting ones but I know I am probably getting things wrong. A kind person in france pointed out a pic was blurry, she is prob right but they go back to 1952ǃ. You seem very excellent at your work would you give me some advice re the deleting of the pic or anything you can help me with as there is new interest since being on tv thank you so much kareenza ̴Kareenza (talk) 13:52, 12 May 2018

Pictogram voting comment.svg Context It looks like the photo Kareenza is trying to delete is w:File:Terry Hogan in Athens 1956.jpg, but it does not exist in Commons. I assume this user is the person in France. -- SLV100 (talk) 02:56, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
Responding for records. Discussions continuing on Kareenza's talkpage. Best regards, Rehman 14:14, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Speedy tag on a restored file[edit]

Hi Rehman. You restored File:Terence_Hogan_and_Roz_Hogan_in_Cannes.jpg but left the speedy tag on it. I was going to convert it to a DR, but thought that might derail the current conversation you're having with the uploader. Storkk (talk) 09:24, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Hey Storkk. Thanks for the note. I forgot about those tags. Cheers, Rehman 09:37, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Your best shot 2018[edit]

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

I'm wishing you all the best for the New Year and I hope you're going to have many memorable photo opportunities in 2019. With 2018 coming to an end, it's time to look back at the past 12 months. I'm curious – what would you consider your best shot of 2018 and why? I invite you to share your image and your thoughts in order to provide others with the opportunity to celebrate, learn, and enjoy:

Your best shot 2018

Thanks for all your effort in sharing your vision of the world with others under a free license!

Requesting help with cleanup of SVG translation campaign[edit]

Hello Rehman, as you may be aware, we organised a campaign to translate SVG files into various Indian languages, last month. We are in process of Phase 1 cleanup, which is all of removing duplicates + completely wrong and misleading translations. All the files are listed at c:Commons:SVG Translation Campaign 2019 in India/Phase 1 Cleanup, by language organisers and active contributors to respective language Wikipedias. I request to you to help us with the cleanup by deleting the files which are listed sections have names such as "Delete", "For deletion" etc. Kindly let me know if you have any queries. Thanks in advance, KCVelaga (talk · mail) 14:57, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi KCVelaga. The above request is complete. Please let me know if I have missed any, or you'd like any restored. All the best for this project. Rehman 15:16, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the rapid action. There are two more left under Bengali and one under Marathi duplicates' sections. Also a template at the end. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 15:21, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
My pleasure, KCVelaga. The missed ones are also deleted. Have a nice evening. Rehman 15:26, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks again, KCVelaga (talk · mail) 15:31, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
One more is added to Marathi problematic list, and one to Telugu duplicates list. Please delete them as well. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 10:39, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
KCVelaga, done. Rehman 10:42, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

┌───────────────────┘
Please delete File:Laser-symbol-text.te.svg and File:Computational physics diagram.te.svg. They are duplicates of File:Laser-symbol-text-te.svg and File:Computational physics diagram-te.svg respectively. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 09:08, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

KCVelaga, apologies for the delay. This is done. Rehman 23:03, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

Sinhalese translation[edit]

I hope that I’ve got the wording right. I’m a little rusty and it’s difficult using the templates. Dan arndt (talk) 12:42, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Photo walk in Stockholm[edit]

It's only a few weeks until Wikimania 2019 in Sweden. I'd like to invite you to the Commons Photographer's photo walk. If you're planning on going to Stockholm in August, please consider joining this event. This is an opportunity to connect with other photographers, have fun together, and explore the beauty of an iconic Scandinavian city… All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 03:55, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Help with mass message[edit]

Hi Rehman, I need your help for sending a mass message for users on Commons. It is basically to communicate a survey (feedback) form to the users listed at Commons:SVG_Translation_Campaign_2019_in_India/Results#Overall_uploads_table. I would like to know how should the list be structured, and I can prepare it accordingly. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 13:46, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Hello KCVelaga. Apologies for the late reply. For structuring the list, you may find more information here or use one of the Mass-mail subscription list shells. Cheers, Rehman 15:35, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
But is this going to work on Commons? Should I create a list here or on English Wikipedia? KCVelaga (talk · mail) 04:08, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
Yes, after creating, we should be able to copy the source code across to Commons. Rehman 00:31, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
The list is at en:Wikipedia:Mass message senders/Shell-STC2019IN, and the message is at Commons:SVG Translation Campaign 2019 in India/Feedback survey. I have sent the message to their English Wikipedia talk pages, I request you to send it to their Commons talk pages. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 04:14, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Hello KCVelaga. Your message has been sent. The shell was imported to User:KCVelaga/Wikipedia:Mass message senders/Shell-STC2019IN. It can be deleted at your request. Cheers. Rehman 05:45, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
Many thanks for the help. I have moved the page from my user subpage to Commons:SVG Translation Campaign 2019 in India/Mass message shell. I would like to keep this list as it may be useful for promoting future activities in this area. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 06:00, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
No worries. Have a great day! Rehman 06:47, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at Wikimedia Commons.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!

MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown[edit]

I am not sure I like the changes you made to the subject page. Commons Admins do around 45,000 deletions a month, so even small changes that may look better, but slow us down, are not a good thing. When doing a deletion, we don't search by number -- do any of us remember them all? -- but by reason, so the lines should begin with the reason, not the number.

I am sure, though, that you should not have made such sweeping changes without discussing it with other Admins in advance and specifically involving @Túrelio, JuTa, 1989, Gbawden, Taivo, Sealle, EugeneZelenko, Didym, Ellin Beltz, Herbythyme: and me, who collectively have done 57% of all deletions in 2020. I'll wait for more input before taking any action. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:38, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

I personally prefer readable text over acronyms, even if later are used in some projects. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 22:49, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
Hi Jameslwoodward and EugeneZelenko. I apologise for that, and thank you for taking the time to provide feedback here. I've made that change only on the basis that the links already exist, and that the change would make each line 1 character shorter. I should have discussed this. I have now reverted myself, and will post a proposal soon. Kind regards, Rehman 02:23, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
I agree with others and I confess, that I still do not remember deletion rationale acronyms – I see them every day, but I cannot remember them. Taivo (talk) 08:07, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
I can't remember anything by numbers, it would be best to use text. While I have someone technical's attention, why on earth is there a checkbox for "notify users" on the copyright violation form? Notifying users is required, that should not be there waiting for us to click or unclick it, I think it should be automatic. That checkbox wastes more of my time than any single other clickbox on any website that I use everywhere. It was also added - as far as I know - without discussion at some point in the last couple of years. Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:25, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hi Rehman, please explain this? Thanks. --A.Savin 12:57, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi A.Savin. The photo does not depict the Weheragala Reservoir, but the dam. I have now created a separate category and added the file to it. Cheers, Rehman 13:12, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
A.Savin, I'm going to revert this and this. Reservoir categories are usually the subcategory of dam categories, as reservoirs are created by the dam. Hence it should be the other way around, in this case. Rehman 14:41, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
Actually, I don't care much what way around it shall be (for my logical thinking though, the dam is a part of the reservoir's infrastructure and so it is its subcat), but then definitely it should be the upper category connected with its location (Yala N.P., Monaragala District). --A.Savin 14:58, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
Yes correct, the other categories are fine. Cheers, Rehman 15:02, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
