Important message for file movers[edit]

Commons File mover.svg

A community discussion has been closed where the consensus was to grant all file movers the suppressredirect user right. This will allow file movers to not leave behind a redirect when moving files and instead automatically have the original file name deleted. Policy never requires you to suppress the redirect, suppression of redirects is entirely optional.

Possible acceptable uses of this ability:

  • To move recently uploaded files with an obvious error in the file name where that error would not be a reasonable redirect. For example: moving "Sheep in a tree.jpg" to "Squirrel in a tree.jpg" when the image does in fact depict a squirrel.
  • To perform file name swaps.
  • When the original file name contains vandalism. (File renaming criterion #5)

Please note, this ability should be used only in certain circumstances and only if you are absolutely sure that it is not going to break the display of the file on any project. Redirects should never be suppressed if the file is in use on any project. When in doubt, leave a redirect. If you forget to suppress the redirect in case of file name vandalism or you are not fully certain if the original file name is actually vandalism, leave a redirect and tag the redirect for speedy deletion per G2.

The malicious or reckless breaking of file links via the suppressredirect user right is considered an abuse of the file mover right and is grounds for immediate revocation of that right. This message serves as both a notice that you have this right and as an official warning. Questions regarding this right should be directed to administrators. --Majora (talk) 21:36, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Valued Images[edit]

I also posted this message on MichaelMaggs' talk page.

I'm writing because of your early involvement with the Valued Images forum. Archaeodontosaurus appears to be the moderator. If not, he is the dominate figure.

I began participating in this forum 6 months ago. I read the rules and thought I understood the intent. Over time I've had some disagreements over intent with Archaeodontosaurus. But, there seems to be no place to go to get the intent of Valued Images judged, so he becomes the final arbiter. This would be okay if it were his group but I think it has broader significance. This first exchange I'm listing is our latest disagreement and it made me wonder again about the intent.

These following two are recent and also raise the question of intent, but in different contexts.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Valued_image_candidates/Battelstein%27s_--_Houston.jpg

I'm quite ambivalent about this last one. This building is on the U.S. National Register of Historic places. I'm an old man now but when a boy this was the most elegant and widely known department store in Houston, Texas. It's certainly a low quality image however it's an accurate representation of the building. So, is the goal to approve good quality images or the best representations of the subject?

I suggest a committee be formed to decide whether a particular image is within the purpose/goal/objective/intent of the Valued Image forum.

The committee would not decide whether an image itself is to be accepted as best, but in the case of a disagreement, whether it falls within the purpose/intent of the forum.

Thank you for your time. -- Jim Evans ([[User talk:Jim Evans|
