User talk:Fastily

Return to "Fastily" page.

Did you receive my email (template) ? no reply seen.Edit

Yes, the question is did you receive and see my email sent july 3, regarding templates? I can re-send it if necessary. Janwikifoto --Janwikifoto (talk) 18:10, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

I don't recall seeing any emails from you. Then again, I rarely check the email address I use for Wikipedia/Commons, so FWIW you're better off asking about it here. -FASTILY 09:12, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

File:Presidential Standard of the Republic of Korea.svgEdit

Would you be willing to RevDel the flag back to October 26, 2011, the dark blue? There is a user who is intent on edit warring to make it the lighter blue, this has already been discussed and there were sources that the flag should match the same blue as File:Flag of South Korea.svg. Fry1989 eh? 01:11, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Done! -FASTILY 09:12, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but as I feared they are still reverting. In the previous discussion where this user and another Korean user were participating, they repeatedly did not provide any sources except for photographs, but those were inconclusive as just as many (if not more) show a darker blue. It was admitted by one of the users that the presidential standard should match File:Flag of Korea.svg, and all the other governmental flags are currently set to match. I am requesting you RevDel out the lighter blue so that it may no longer be reverted to, until this user can provide an official source, which I doubt they have. Fry1989 eh? 19:24, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
The user has continued to edit war despite multiple users reverting, I also ask that they be temporarily blocked. Fry1989 eh? 20:22, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
Blocked. Hope that helps, FASTILY 21:13, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
I wish it wasn't necessary, I gave them every chance to stop and discuss the matter. It should be noted they replied with several personal attacks, and I believe that they would continue to revert when the block has passed. If they do, I suppose I should bring this to the Admins Noticeboard? In any case, I appreciate your assistance. Fry1989 eh? 02:08, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Note that there is no reason to match with Flag of South Korea, since it is different flags, and presidential standards has its own rule for colours. Also, Fry's source was at least 10 years ago, so it is out of date. Revicomplaint? 05:19, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Fastily, considering this threat to continue reverting the file unless some sort of deadline is met, I believe the file should be protected from editing until a solution may be met. Fry1989 eh? 06:16, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Yeah good point, I should have done that earlier. Page locked for 3 months, or until whenever consensus regarding the color is attained at File talk:Presidential Standard of the Republic of Korea.svg. -FASTILY 06:33, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

File:Diaphania nitidalis life cycle.jpg, File:Cast 2014-07-08 06-11.jpg, ...Edit

Would you mind appending the reason (given in the speedy-template) and/or the source of each file to the log? I think it is difficult to cover all cases with a default sentence and it is much more transparent for non-admins to get a clue why this file actually got deleted. Furthermore, if the reason turns out to be invalid in the future (e.g. License changed, ...) things would be easier to fix by non-admins and non-otrs people. Admins and OTRS agents are already too busy these days... --McZusatz (talk) 11:44, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

By the same token I do recommend that you use {{Noncommercial}} & {{Nonderivative}} when failing an image at license review. It would go a long way to help me use a more specific reason when sorting and processing speedies :) -FASTILY 22:36, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
It is the default behavior of the license review script to use the "wrong" template... ;)
Are you using a tiny JAVA program to do the speedy deletions? Often the speedy template happens to be on top of the page so appending "Content was: "+wiki.getPageText(); should suffice in most cases, I guess? --McZusatz (talk) 06:35, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Mistakenly deleted filesEdit

Please DO check. Thorsen, "Raúl Del Prado" Undeletion requests. I can understand that mistakes happen, but without any doubt, all my "Out of Scope" deleted files were mistakenly deleted. This Photograph was officially taken by Radio Programas del Peru (RPP) in their humor section "Los Chistosos" (with proper Flick license). --Sorondil (talk) 13:56, 24 July 2014 (UTC) (talk) 8:26, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Link the file in question, please? -FASTILY 22:36, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Moon MullicanEdit

The reason i didn't know, if it was protected is because i don't understand all those 'Common' things, my English is not good enough to understand, the image is in large values availlable on the Internet. I don't think its protected. SwampRockMusic (talk) 14:13, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Kragenspiegel Sanitätstruppe Bw.svg and relatedEdit

Dear Fastily. Please let me know why a file uploaded in 2012 applies to "Uploader requested deletion of a recently uploaded unused file". Thank you. --Krd 10:28, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of a globally unused/unlinked, obsolete (author created and uploaded an svg version of each image) file, which could feasibly be replaceable/recreated if need be, was requested in good faith by the image's author, making this a straightforward courtesy deletion -FASTILY 10:44, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
This is a typical type of image that could be in external use, and even redirecting is no good idea because of the totally different design. I doubt for the whole series that they are obsolete, and there is no benefit in deleting these images. Anyway, we don't need to discuss this further, I can live with the deletion, just wanted to point out the reason why is it wrong. :) --Krd 11:35, 26 July 2014 (UTC)


Can you explain the deletion of the following files

  • Trost i taklampa Det Norske Teatret 2014 Gunvor mot de andre.jpg
  • Trost i taklampa Det Norske Teatret 2014 Gunvor og de andre.jpg
  • Trost i taklampa Det Norske Teatret 2014 Gunvor og Arne.jpg
