Commons file move icon
COM:MOVE directs here. For information about moving files from other projects, see Commons:Moving files to Commons.

De functie Bestand hernoemen (File Rename) maakt het mogelijk om bestanden te hernoemen (of te verplaatsen), net als dit bij "normale" paginas mogelijk is. De functie is alleen beschikbaar voor administrators (sinds 2009-09-21).

Users can request a file rename by first activating the gadget RenameLink via Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets subsection "Interface: Files and categories". Then an additional menu option "rename request" appears in the top menu. Subsequently an administrator will evaluate and execute or reject the request. There could be a delay of a few hours.

Welke bestanden moeten worden hernoemd?

Whether a filename is perceived to be suitable often depends on the familiarity of the individual with the subject, which is often the place depicted. It also occurs that items are known under different terms to different contributors or they believe entities are primarily well-known under the term they are used with to describe this entity, neglecting cultural differences, even within countries.

Not of less importance is the purpose the filename is believed to have; contributors frequently categorizing files have different demands from those who create, process, manage and upload them. Uploaders often have schemas naming their files; moving files might break them. If possible, language and schema should be preserved, as well as the camera or catalogue number.

Op het moment zijn er 6 onbetwiste gevallen waarin een hernoeming gedaan hoort te worden:

# Aim Voorbeeld (oude naam) Voorbeeld (nieuwe naam)
1. Overeenstemming en na verzoek van de Uploader[1]
2. To change from a meaningless or ambiguous name to a name that describes what the image particularly displays.[2] File:DSC 1342.jpg (no information at all) File:Pretoria Venningpark DSC 1342.jpg
File:20110428 OH K1023900 0014.JPG - Flickr - NZ Defence Force.jpg (only photographer or rights holder) File:Helicopter A109LUH(NZ) by NZ Defence Force.jpg
File:20120519 3349.CR2.png (only date) File:Sebkha-Chott 3349.png
File:Paris 319.jpg (only broad location) File:Paris 75018 Rue Norvins no 018 Le Consulat z.jpg
File:Smartphone.jpg (generic category) File:Samsung Galaxy Note series (Original, II, and 3).jpg
File:RAS.jpg (acronym or initials) File:Rodrigo Arias Sánchez.jpg
File:Flickr - law keven - Anybody know a Good Dentist^......Happy Furry Friday Everybody...-O))).jpg (no relation to file content) File:Lion-tailed Macaque, Colchester Zoo, England.jpg
File:Louvre 12.jpg (inappropriate for specific content) File:Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci.jpg
3. To correct obvious errors in filenames, including misspelled proper nouns, incorrect dates, and misidentified objects or organisms.[3] File:Ayres Rock 3.png
File:Van Gogh portrait 1787.jpg
File:Unknown insect 02.jpg
File:Ayers Rock 3.png
File:Van Gogh portrait 1887.jpg
File:Hogna radiata 02.jpg
4. To harmonize the names of a set of images so that only one part of all names differs.[4] 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
5. To change a filename that would be a violation of Commons’ policies and guidelines if it appeared elsewhere on the project as text. This includes gratuitous vulgarity, personal attacks/harassment, blatant advertising, and cases where revision deletion would be authorized.[5] File:Stupid fat idiot.jpg
File:Buy now NEW PAINT! 555-6200.png
File:<Name of the person>.jpg
File:2007 pink Honda Accord.png
6. Non-controversial maintenance and bug fixes, including fixing double extensions, invalid or incorrect extensions, character handling problems, and other similar technical issues.[6] File:Map of Asia.svg.png
File:Computer mouse.jpe
File:Map of Asia.png
File:Computer mouse.jpg
Additional information
Please consider creating file redirects instead, where applicable and possible. They are cheap, usually do not break anything and are easily edited or deleted, if required.
  1. Unless there is a compelling reason not to, uploader requests should be honored. This is a courtesy, not an absolute right, however. If a file mover feels that a proposed new name is disruptive or inappropriate, they can suggest a different name or decline the request.
  2. Including:
    1. Absolutely no information at all
      Composed entirely of random letters, numbers, and words like “Flickr”, “original”, and “crop”, which do not describe the subject of the image, but may indicate its upload history
    2. Only information is the photographer or rights holder
      The only piece of meaningful information is the name of the photographer or the holder of the copyright
    3. Only information is the date
      Only piece of meaningful information is the date that the photograph was taken on
    4. Only information is the location (broad)
      The only piece of meaningful information is a broad location, such as a city, province, or country. In this case, the location is so large that an average person would not be able to figure out where the image was taken or what the image depicted, without assistance from someone that knows the area.
    5. Generic category rather than specific item
      The only piece of meaningful information is a word, such as “smartphone” or “screenshot”, which broadly describes the subject of the file, but does not impart any information that would help someone identify the specific object depicted. This is not just restricted to inanimate objects, it also applies to broad titles or groupings, such as “queen” or “bird”.
    6. Acronyms and initials
      The only piece of meaningful information is an acronym or a person’s initials. This differs from “Absolutely no information at all” in that the acronym or initials are related to the subject of the file, even if it takes a second to figure out how.
    7. Names that are not meaningless, but do not describe the file
      Contains a coherent description or message that do not describe the subject of the file. Does not apply in cases where the name of the file is the title given to a work of art by the artist that created it, even if the name has nothing to do with what is depicted (for example, many works of Dadaism)
    8. Images where the information in the filename, while normally acceptable, is inappropriate for the specific content
    Not including: Specific locations, such as a park, an individual building, or an event.
  3. If an object or organism was incorrectly identified in the filename (such as calling a Sylvilagus floridanus by the name “File:Sylvilagus audubonii.jpg”), this criterion covers renaming the image. If the filename includes words like “unidentified” or “unknown” when describing an object or organism, and that object or organism has been identified, this criterion also covers the change. This criterion does not, however, cover moving a file from its common usage name to its scientific or technical name.
  4. Just because images share a category does not mean that they are part of a set. There are two scenarios that this criterion is designed for. First, certain complex templates (such as those that use BSicons or that display football kits) assume that the images used in them will follow a specific naming convention. Wikisource also uses a specific naming convention for the source files they transcribe. Second, files that form parts of a whole (such as scans from the same book or large images that are divided into smaller portions due to Commons’ upload size restriction) should follow the same naming convention so that they appear together, in order, in categories and lists.
  5. Note that Commons’ neutral point of view differs significantly from that of English Wikipedia. A file like “File:Taiwanese Tiaoyutai islands map.png” would be acceptable on Commons, even though it is not neutrally titled (see here). This does not mean that all non-neutrally worded titles are acceptable, however. An image of a person with the name “File:1BIGGest_nOSE_everS33n.JPG” would not enjoy the same protection.
  6. This is not a catch-all for anything that doesn't fit one of the above. This is for specific technical problems, generally which have a Phabricator task and have been the subject of community discussion.

Welke bestanden moeten niet worden hernoemd?

Uit principe is het beter om bestanden met een redelijk goede naam, zelfs als er een kleine verbetering mogelijk is, NIET te hernoemen. Bijvoorbeeld:

# Criteria Voorbeeld (oude naam) Voorbeeld (nieuwe naam)
1. Bestanden moeten niet worden hernoemd met als reden dat de nieuwe versie er iets beter uitziet. File:Binnehof'09.jpg File:Binnenhof_2009.jpg
2. Bestanden moeten niet worden hernoemd met als reden dat de nieuwe versie in het Engels is. (Denk eraan: Commons is een meertalig project, en er is geen reden om Engels de voorkeur te geven). Hetzelfde geldt voor bestanden met Engelse naam over een Nederlands thema. File:Rathaus_bremen.jpg
File:Lelystad Town Hall.jpg
File:Lelystad stadhuis.jpg
3. Bestanden moeten niet worden hernoemd als het een kleine aanpassing betreft. Dit zou gevolgen hebben voor duizenden pagina's in ongeveer 700 projecten. File:Seal Of The President Of The Unites States Of America.svg File:Seal Of The President Of The United States Of America.svg

Andere naamconventies en uitzonderingen op de bovenstaande lijst kunnen voor specifieke projecten worden besproken.

Hoe hernoem ik een bestand?

Movefile gadget

Alleen Commons administrators en stewards kunnen op dit moment files hernoemen. Als u een administrator bent, dan kunt u het move tabje gebruiken, net als bij een normale pagina.

Als u geen administrator bent, dan kunt u de volgende tekst in de beschrijving van het bestand plaatsen: {{rename|nieuwenaam.ext|numeric reason|reden waarom het bestand verplaatst moet worden}} Een administrator zal het bestand dan hernoemen als het onderstaande richtlijnen voldoet.

Responding editors should follow the instructions on the template. In most cases, a file redirect should be left on the original page, except if it is a misleading or promotional name.


When you move (rename) a file by using the move tab, the old title will automatically become a redirect page to the new title. Additionally urls to thumbnails of the old file name will also redirect (however, direct links to the full size version of the file will not redirect). Redirects to the moved file are automatically updated when using Move & Replace to avoid double redirects.[1] If you do not use Move & Replace, you'll have to update all redirects to the file manually.

Is er een log van bestanden die hernoemd zijn?

Alle bestanden die zijn hernoemd komen in het Move log, een log voor alle hernoemingen/verplaatsingen in alle projecten. Er is nog geen filter voor bestanden op dit moment.
