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

I mainly deal with files relating to the United States military or College football, mainly regarding the Wisconsin Badgers. If you do see me out and about you will often find me uploading U.S. military images or College Football images (almost always from Flickr), requesting file renames, fixing public domain templates or categories on files.

Helpful links for myselfEdit

Getting your exact number of uploads.
  • Go to Special:ListFiles/Dainomite
  • set it to a high number (like 500 or higher manually via URL)
  • (assuming you're using Chrome) hit Ctrl+Shift+J
  • paste in $('.mw-datatable.listfiles.TablePager tr').length-1
  • hit enter
If Hotcat stops working

On deleting filesEdit

On moving filesEdit

On moving files TO commons: Commons:Moving to Commons


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
3. Correct misleading names into accurate ones File:MY_CUTE_MOUSE.JPG
4. Change meaningless bio-names into binomial scientific names File:Unknown_insect_02.jpg
5. Correct obvious errors in file names (e.g. wrong proper nouns or false historical dates) File:Ayres_Rock_3.png
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
7. Remove pejorative, offensive or crude language that would not be appropriate in the file description File:Stupid fat idiot.jpg File:Joe Bloggs.jpg

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