ORTS help[edit]

Can you please tell me how to use ORTS and upload files that require ORTS first? I think it would be easier for me to remember if you explained than me reading ORTS pages. --VKras (talk) 13:52, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi VKras,
if you want to upload an image that is neither your own work nor in the public domain, you need to obtain a permission under a free license (which must be Commons-compatible) from the author or rightsholder. If this image is not available on Flickr or another platform, which shows the avaiable license, then you need to contact the author or rightsholder directly. For such requests we have Commons:Email templates that should be used. The author or rightsholder needs to send his/her permission email to where our OTRS volunteers will process the permission and validate it.
The best sequence of events for you as the uploader is: first ask the author or rightsholder if he/she is willing to give you such a permission. If you get a positive signal, then upload the image and add {{OTRS pending}} to the image page. Then send the author or rightsholder the permission mail, using the above mentioned template and filling in the URL of uploaded image. Thereafter you have to wait 1) whether the author or rightsholder really issues a permission, and 2) for the rather overworked OTRS volunteers to process the permission which take quite some time. --Túrelio (talk) 21:50, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

@ Turelio Thanks for your message. --VKras (talk) 11:18, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Edit summary[edit]

When editing a page on Commons there is a small field labeled "Edit Summary" or "Summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the Edit Summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the Edit Summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's name in the Edit Summary field - please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you.  — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 11:08, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Filemover![edit]

Commons File mover.svg

Hi VKras, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{Rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please leave a redirect behind unless you have a valid reason not to do so. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references. Please see this section of the file rename guideline for more information.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.

File:Костел Внебовзяття Діви Марії. 1644—1653 рр. Біще 03.jpg[edit]

Hi. Could you please explain why you have renamed this file again? This is not an obvious error, instead it is an edit war led by User:Бучач-Львів, in this case by your proxy. I know it is not obvious without knowledge of the language, but the history of the file should have suggested this is not an obvious error. Thanks — NickK (talk) 12:48, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

@ NickK Sorry, I did not know that Бучач-Львів has engaged in edit war. This user has lied. I am sorry for any inconvenience. --VKras (talk) 08:44, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Notification about possible deletion[edit]

Some contents have been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether they should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at their entry.

If you created these pages, please note that the fact that they have 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 them, 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!

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)

Renaming files with an apostrophe in the name[edit]

Dear VKras,

Yesterday, I requested the renaming of the following file from Anniversaire de la mort d'Adolphe Thiers.jpg to Anniversaire de la mort d’Adolphe Thiers.jpg, but you rejected my request.

I am asking such renaming because I uploaded hundred of files, and some have an apostrophe in the name (this is frequent in French).

The problem is that in some file names I have the English apostrophe ('), and in others I have the French apostrophe (’). This is not a problem except for the ZoomViewer gadget (which is enabled by default on Commons for images bigger than 2 megapixels).

ZoomViewer is working if there is a French apostrophe (’) in the name, but is not working if there is an English apostrophe (') in the name.

Here some of my files with an apostrophe in the name:

  • English apostrophe (') ==> ZoomViewer NOK
  1. File:Accueil de la princesse Stéphanie de Belgique par le bourgmestre lors de son mariage avec l'archiduc Rodolphe d'Autriche le 10 mai 1881.jpg
  2. File:Archiduc Rodolphe, prince héritier d'Autriche et de Hongrie.jpg
  3. File:Archiduchesse Élisabeth-Marie d'Autriche.jpg
  4. File:Visite de Maximilien et Charlotte à l'empereur Napoléon III le 5 mars 1864.jpg
  • French apostrophe (’) ==> ZoomViewer OK
  1. File:25e anniversaire de l’inauguration du roi Léopold Ier.jpg
  2. File:Le prince Emmanuel d’Orléans, duc de Vendôme.jpg
  3. File:Revue lors du 50e anniversaire de l’indépendance de la Belgique le 18 juillet 1880.jpg
  4. File:Visite de Léopold et Marie-Henriette à l’empereur Napoléon III le 12 octobre 1855.jpg

I have posted a message hoping this problem could be solved, but not sure it will be. See here.

For me the renaming is the most easy solution. Or else I will have to re-upload all these files with the correct name.

Can I request again such renames?

Dates in filenames[edit]

While a date in a filename may not strictly be necessary, I should recommend to leave it in, just in case a similarly named file exists or is uploaded. This avoids duplication of names and ambiguity. --Schlosser67 (talk) 07:28, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Schlosser67 I prefer when file names do not have a date. --VKras (talk) 18:40, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

I've noticed your preference, but see above: a date may not be necessary, but it can be helpful. Just something to keep in mind, not a strict advice. It's something I picked up at work. Computer memory is cheap nowadays, so you can keep longer and more specific filenames over shorter and more ambiguous ones. It may avoid another instance of renaming. That's all. --Schlosser67 (talk) 16:45, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
