Movicons2-hello.gif Hi there, I'm Dainomite.

I mainly deal with files relating to the United States military. If you do see me out and about you will often find me uploading U.S. military images, requesting file renames, fixing public domain templates or categories on files.

rationaleEdit

Commons:File naming describes how files should be named. In general, Commons aims to provide stable file names as there might be external file clients and file moving involves significant human and computing resources. Thus renaming should be used with caution. Currently there are seven widely undisputed uses for rename requests:

# Aim Examples (old name) Examples (new name)
1. Uploader requested
2. Change from completely meaningless names into suitable names, according to what the image displays File:22785u9ob807b3c4f4.jpg
File:DSC_1342.jpg
File:Tower_Bridge_2009.jpg
File:Pretoria_Venningpark.jpg
3. Correct misleading names into accurate ones File:MY_CUTE_MOUSE.JPG
File:1BIGGest_nOSE_everS33n.JPG
File:Dutch_pet_rabbit.jpg
File:John_Doe_at_concert.jpg
4. Change meaningless bio-names into binomial scientific names File:Unknown_insect_02.jpg
File:Unidentified_flowers_HFJ.jpg
File:Hogna_radiata_02.jpg
File:Echinops_setifer_Japan.jpg
5. Correct obvious errors in file names (e.g. wrong proper nouns or false historical dates) File:Ayres_Rock_3.png
File:Van_Gogh_portrait_1787.jpg
File:Ayers_Rock_3.png
File:Van_Gogh_portrait_1887.jpg
6. Harmonize file names of a set of images (so that only one part of all names differs) to ease their usage in templates (e.g. diagram symbols, scans of pages of a book, maps) File:Bhf-BS-Icon.svg
File:Icon_HST_bs_1.svg
File:Dst_symbol.svg
File:BSicon_BHF.svg
File:BSicon_HST.svg
File:BSicon_DST.svg
7. Remove pejorative, offensive or crude language that would not be appropriate in the file description File:Stupid fat idiot.jpg File:<Name of the person>.jpg

Additional naming conventions and exceptions from the above list might be discussed for specific projects.
