Hello, Sitush!
Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Portrait of Erasmus Smith[edit]

Left me wondering about the card (?) he was holding in his left hand. What could it be? A token of his profession, or religion? What was the meaning there? NVO (talk) 19:12, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

The ship will be a token of his trade - he was a merchant, bringing in goods from Turkey. I am unsure about the card/paper that he is holding but, yes, it probably has some sort of symbolism. Could it perhaps represent the Royal Charter that his eponymous trust received for schooling in Ireland? It does not seem "flamboyant" enough for that. Maybe a bill of exchange? - Sitush (talk) 19:53, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, you can now share images from Flickr using the UploadWizard, batch-upload up to 500 files with UploadWizard instead of 50, move up to 32 pages per minute instead of 8, and upload freely licensed audio files in the MP3 format. Thank you. INeverCry 03:08, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Biased against Jat people ?[edit]

Dear your edits and deletions are indicator that you seem to be biased against Jat people. I could not understand reasons why ?


Just FYI: User_talk:Fastily#No_permission_tags_by_your_bot. Thought you might be interested. -FASTILY 08:07, 12 June 2013 (UTC)


Can't really do anything, it's one of those things we've (or rather you've) got to live with I guess, unless of course you decide to take a walkabout! —SpacemanSpiff 03:27, 26 July 2013 (UTC)


Hello Sitush, I'm Anup. I'm apparently new to Commons and its policies. Thought, I'll ask you assist to solve my confusion. Okay it is, Is it allowed to upload a personal image on Commons and link it within some Wikipedia article. Is there some policy/guideline to determine if it is the user's personal image or a random image? For example, File:Group_playing_Holi.jpg‎, File:Ceaholi.jpg, File:Young_man_celebrating_Holi.JPG linked within en:Wiki:Holi. File:Hindu_Wedding_Bride_receiving_blessings_Delhi_India.jpg, File:Hindu_wedding_couple.jpg, File:Vinay_neha.jpg, File:Hindu_bride_at_temple,_Nepal.jpg, File:Gaye_holud.jpg, File:A_Hindu_wedding_ritual_in_progress_b.jpg, File:Hindu_Wedding.jpg, File:Meet_friends_and_family_ritual,_after_Hindu_wedding_vows,_India.jpg, File:Shy_smile_of_a_bride_in_a_Hindu_wedding.jpg, File:WeddingMoment.jpg, File:A_Hindu_wedding_ritual.jpg, File:Hindu_marriage_blessing.jpg, File:Hindu_marriage_blessing.jpg earlier linked within en:Wiki:Vivaah(now removed). I'm really curious if they comply with Wikimedia Commons policy and guidelines. AnupMehra 18:47, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Well, the first one cannot be transferred to Commons because we have no idea who took it - the sources is "Whats App" but there is no actual URL and therefore no means to determine the copyright status. I think that it should be deleted on Wikipedia also, although Wikipedia does have slightly different policies to Commons when it comes to copyright.
It is a complex issue and I admit to only understanding a small part of it! - Sitush (talk) 08:55, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

File:Rajmohan Gandhi (1960).jpg[edit]

This media file is NOT missing evidence of permission. It is released under CC-BY-SA which is noted in the source and recorded in the file description. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 21:34, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Your speedy requests[edit]

Your requests do not meet the requirements of Commons:Criteria for speedy deletion.

Per the process, "Appeal: If you think that the file does not meet the criteria for speedy deletion, please explain why on its talk page and remove this tag." I have added explanation on the talk page. I have removed the tag.

You may wish to pursue standard delete process. You will find the required procedure at Commons:Deletion requests. M Tracy Hunter (talk) 17:35, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Pranav21391[edit]

Hi, I overlooked a message you sent to my talk page. You are right, so I created this DR. You may also want to see Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Indiaresists. Regards, Yann (talk) 12:10, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

@Yann: thanks for that. I never did find the IBN thing that you now link in the DR but, yes, it clinches it. Good digging! - Sitush (talk) 12:17, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Commons copyvios[edit]

I noticed that you just tagged this file, which was copyrighted to PTI, for deletion. The same user has also uploaded this file, which was taken from here. So, can you tag it for deletion? - NitinMlk (talk) 16:00, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

@NitinMlk: done. All it takes is a click on "Report copyright violation" in the left-hand menu of the image page, then insert the url for the origin. - Sitush (talk) 16:19, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
@Sitush: Thanks. I will definitely try it in the future. - NitinMlk (talk) 16:22, 16 July 2016 (UTC)


May i know why did you deleted Vaniya page? They are a community in North malabar (Eventhough migrated Baniyas from sourashtra almost more than 1500 yeara ago)They have unique customs such like their own temples,theyyam(They have 108 temples in north kerala) and now they are assimiliated in to large Nair group. Merging if Vaniya and North indian Baniya dosen't make a sense! Please stop playing Uncle sam using your administative power Thankyou

Just because you are blocked on English Wikipedia doesn't mean you can pursue the same agenda here. - Sitush (talk) 17:45, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

File:Section of Crawford's map of the White Mountains of New Hampshire from original surveys by Geo. T. Crawford.jpg[edit]

File:Section of Crawford's map of the White Mountains of New Hampshire from original surveys by Geo. T. Crawford.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.

Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

No source fly-by tagging[edit]

Please desist from unnecessary "fly-by" tagging of images with "no source". Tagging images like File:Flag of Jhalawar.svg with "no source" when they are marked as "own work" is improper and a misuse of the tools. Thanks -- (talk) 08:14, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

@: Really? Where did it come from? Do youj have any idea how many fictitious Indian flags there have been? Do Commons admins give a flying fuck? Please desist from being an idiot. - Sitush (talk) 08:45, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
And stop claiming it is "fly-by". That is utter bollocks, as you should know from your past involvement at en-WP, where you will have seen my areas of interest. - Sitush (talk) 08:48, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
Ah, having trawled through your contribution history I now see what you mean, I think. You are saying that nominating them for deletion is a valid process but doing the tagging isn't because they would be out of copyright and thus sourcing does not matter in that context. Why didn't you say that instead of assuming that we're all familiar with the procedural intricacies of this horrendous place? That said, I still do not understand your comments at the various deletion discussions that you opened thereafter. Are you suggesting that they should be kept, deleted or what? - Sitush (talk) 08:59, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
Calming down now, sorry. I think you need to brush up on your communication skills, though. If you had explained or even linked to the relevant policy/guidance then that would have helped. So would a comment that you had initiated deletion discussions, not to mention greater clarity of expression in those discussions. Finally, the ABF about fly-by was pretty atrocious - you had clearly not looked at my history. - Sitush (talk) 10:29, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
