  • Request: Split older versions into new names.
  • Reason: Three older versions of the file exist in three different locations, all of which can be used for this category (Category:General Motors TDH-5101 (2969)). Restoring the three older versions of the file will help expand the category, and add separate categories to older versions. ----DanTD (talk) 02:23, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
I was not sure about the exact mapping that you wanted, so I went ahead and gave the files temporary names. Please use {{Rename}} template to correct the file names.
--Sreejith K (talk) 21:49, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the split, but the infoboxes are all wrong. The caption claiming to be for the bus at Herald Square is actually for Floyd Bennett Field. The one claiming to be outside RCB Ballpark in Staten Island, NY isn't even on Staten Island. It's actually in Manhattan. Evidently, "Number 2" is the one outside RCB Ballpark. ----DanTD (talk) 20:22, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

File:Hayabusa fuji 01.JPGFile:EF6649 Fuji Hayabusa 20090312.JPGEdit

@DAJF:   Done, though the destination filename was changed to File:EF6649 Fuji Hayabusa 20090312.jpg by the script. I don't know Japanese, hopefully you can sort out any errors in the file pages. Revent (talk)

Category:2013 Atlantic Antic in Brooklyn: 1974 Mack TBTA Tow TruckCategory:Atlantic Antic in Brooklyn, Category:1974 Mack TBTA Tow TruckEdit

@DanTD: The request you're making isn't really what this page is for, since it's not something that needs admin rights. The type of 'merging and splitting' this request page is for individual page or file histories, which requires the right to delete pages to accomplish. You should just create the two new categories, recategorize the files, and then nominate the old one category for deletion. Alternately, you can bring it up at COM:CFD if you think prior discussion is needed. Revent (talk) 14:16, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Well, if this is something I can do myself, I'll do it. I think I'll split off the truck, and bring up the renaming of Atlantic Antic at CFD. ----DanTD (talk) 14:24, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
@DanTD: Either way (creating a new one or renaming the other, or creating two new ones and deleting the old one) works... you should actually be able to rename the category yourself (I don't think it's at all controversial), it's just that you'll either have to then recategorize the files manually or wait for the bot to do it. Whichever method seems easier to you. Revent (talk) 14:35, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

File:Intrare.jpgEdit

first version - File:Intrare USEM.jpg

  • Reason: Completely different images; ambiguous title.

--XXN, 00:00, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

File:Kirche Oberrußbach.jpgFile:Kirche Oberrußbach interior.jpgEdit

--Herzi Pinki (talk) 13:18, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

@Herzi Pinki: Sreejithk2000 appears to have started this split on April 6, but then undeleted it without actually doing the spilt.... why is not clear from the logs. I would think, however, that it would make more sense to split out the middle version to File:Kirche Oberrußbach exterior.jpg, and keep the existing image at it's current location... it's been at this name for ~5 years, and changing it would be contrary to established practice. Reventtalk 21:25, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
Hi @Revent:, the file is unused (in the WPs, on Google images). But it is ok to extract the middle version to the name you proposed. --Herzi Pinki (talk) 04:15, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
@Herzi Pinki: Unfortunately, it's really (seriously) not possible to 'authoritatively' determine off-wiki usage... think paywalled websites, those with a robots.txt preventing crawling, ones embedded in PDFs, or ones from somewhere like India (where language issues cause Google to be really terrible). Splitting off the 'top' version of in image to a different filename is essentially a rename, and so should follow at least the 'reasoning' of the rename policy... it's better to just split out the middle, unless the overwrite was very recent.
I'm just giving this a day or two to make sure that Sreejithk didn't encounter some non-obvious issue when he tried to split this previously... unless he found some kind of problem, I'll do it soonish. Reventtalk 23:56, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
There was something wrong with the history the last time I tried to do the split. I could not do it and I reverted the file back to its old version. Feel free to try the split now. --Sreejith K (talk) 14:31, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
@Sreejithk2000: I don't think that was a 'history problem' in the sense of being a database glitch, but instead the result of an Upload Wizard bug... my 'theory' would be using the tool to upload multiple images into the 'upload cache' under the same filename, without actually finishing the process to create the file page... hitting the back button at the 'wrong' spot in the process could cause this.
Here is what I did to resolve this (it's a slightly modified version of the split process)
  1. Delete all revisions.
  2. Restore only the file, and not the file page, for the version that needs to be split. (I missed on the first try, lol, and had to 'reboot') This is intentionally creating a zombie file.
  3. Create a file page for the new zombie, by copying the content from the (at this moment, deleted) file page.
  4. Move the file, and restore the 'original'
I think this is acceptable here because both files were from the same source.... same uploader, same date, same camera, same place... so it seems apparent that the uploader did probably intend to upload them both (they uploaded a number of other images as part of the same campaign) under that license.
@Herzi Pinki: Done as described above. Reventtalk 20:34, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

File:Beak Doctor.jpgEdit

Please split both versions, but let the active version bear this filename, because it’s in use. The old version can be named into something like File:Beak Doctor (Thomas Bartholin).jpg, if a name is needed, but it’s actually a duplicate of File:Thomas Bartholin's beak doctor.jpg. — Speravir_Talk – 02:39, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

@Speravir: I don't think a 'split', truly, is the right thing (since it's a duplicate) but I can merge the underlying copy over to the duplicate, if you want to use it instead (it's cleaner). Reventtalk 00:12, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
No, I’m not interested in using this. And aside of this isn’t it in a worse resolution? But as I’ve seen this I thought these two versions have nothing in common (well, almost nothing), and such occurrings should be splitted. Am I wrong? — Speravir_Talk – 00:32, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
The alternative way could be to hide the first version, or am I wrong again? — Speravir_Talk – 00:44, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
They 'should' be split, theoretically, but there is not much point to doing so if you're just going to them delete the split file as a duplicate (you called it one). The resolution is actually about the same, the 'overwritten' one doesn't have the bleedthrough, but also appears to have come from a poorer-quality print. Unless you actually 'want' the overwritten file, for some reason, I really just don't see why it's worth bothering with splitting them (which always risks breaking something, from bugs). Reventtalk 04:06, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
OK, then let it, like it is. I do not like this, but I can bear it. — Speravir (Talk) – 22:25, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

  • Request: Split
  • Reason: Unintentional upload under same name, different images

--Herzi Pinki (talk) 05:03, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Pixabay-logo.svgEdit

The file Pixabay-logo.svg has already a split request by Josve05a, but I think it is a bit complex, so it’s better to write something here: As easily can be seen, the latest, active version should be split from all older versions, but for the naming we have to consider the following:

  • The old versions are the svg equivalent to file Pixabay-logo.png. Hence I would suggest to give after splitting the actual name Pixabay-logo.svg to these versions.
  • There is already a file Pixabay new logo.svg, which is taken from the website start page. The full logo seen here in the active file version is from Pixabay: About Us/Goodies (there are BTW more files not uploaded yet, including another logo variation). So my suggestion is to move the active version to File:Pixabay new logo full.svg or similar.

— Speravir – 01:55, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

  Done @Speravir, Josve05a: Old logo moved to Pixabay-logo (old).svg / Pixabay-logo (old).png. Regarding Pixabay new logo.svg, first of all it should be fixed because the validator doesn't even want to validate it (click "valid" link) and XML text is displayed instead of image when I click on it in Firefox. I think this is due to lack of <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> header. Also I think it should be renamed, e.g. to Pixabay-logo (unofficial).svg because it doesn't seem to be official, current logo due to lack of the camera. --jdx Re: 16:11, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
I’ve updated Pixabay new logo.svg, the XML declaration was missing. Regarding the “unofficial”: This is used on every Pixabay page, so I consider it very official. But that’s off topic here. — Speravir – 22:54, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

Merging duplicates and potential version deleteEdit

There are 4 files with a defunct, but active version, which the uploader then reuploaded as new files. Perhaps the defunct versions should be version deleted, but I’m not sure: Given the other uploads of this user it may have been simple mistakes, but the content of the blank versions looks dubious. These are the files, first the defunct versions, second the version they should be merged into:

File:Antoine PESNE (1683–1757), Tanzendes Paar mit Zuschauern im Park, Gemälde im Stadtschloss Potsdam (Speisezimmer).png
File:Antoine PESNE (1683–1757), Tanzendes Paar mit Zuschauern im Park, Gemälde im Stadtschloss Potsdam (Speisezimmer), Ausschnitt Der Tänzer, Teilansicht Gesicht.png

Side remark: The given source is wrong (right link is Zwei Gesellschaftsstücke - Antoine Pesne | Bildindex der Kunst & Architektur), and there category related issues, too. I want to fix this afterwards.
— Speravir – 22:23, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

@Speravir: Given that the rationale for overwriting the original uploads was 'wrong description', I think it's reasonable to consider these to be uploader requests for deletion... I don't think merging them would server any useful purpose. Someone who speaks German might explain how to request renaming. - Reventtalk 22:52, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, Revent, I can live with this solution. There’s no need for renaming, I only thought, it would be better to have the now deleted versions as redirects (3 of the files are actually not wrong). — Speravir – 23:01, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
@Speravir: I will not object if you create redirects... but a merge is kind of an involved and risky way to make one. :) - Reventtalk 23:16, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

File:Ishtar-star-symbol-simplified.svgEdit

Six pictures of the same bus in six separate locations in Manhattan. The current version should be kept as File:NYC Transit Authority Flxible 53102-6-1 7340.jpg, while the older versions should be split and renamed as follows;

The descriptions for each version can be found in the history itself, with the exception of the fourth version, which can receive a new description. A new category for all six images named Category:Flxible 53102-6-1; NYCTA (7340) will be created. ----DanTD (talk) 20:10, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Flickr filesEdit

  • Reason: the same images originating from flickr (a common source for every pair) uploaded on Commons in by two versions in different resolutions (in past the transfer tool failed to retrieve files in highest available resolution, or flickr didn't made them available at that time, and at the most recent transfer the tool didn't detected duplicates).

--XXN, 22:38, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi. A user has overwritten File:TanDaNguyenKhacHieu.jpg (which was already in use) with a substantially different image. I've just tried to revert back to the original, and the revert hasn't worked correctly. Both images are just fine as far as I can tell, so really I guess they should be split, but I didn't see that option at the time. Please help. Thanks much.

File: Einbeck1.jpgEdit

Hi, it seems that a user has overwritten file: Einbeck1.jpg , can someone please check that?. I believe the original image showed the building in year 2005, whereas the current image shows the building in 2018. It would be nice if both images could be kept and possibly renamed. Both should be in category: Einbeck Brodhaus, or Houses in Einbeck. Thanks! --Bob kolndyke (talk) 09:05, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

@Bob kolndyke: Everything seems to be fine. According to Exif data the photo was taken on 21. October 2005. It was moved to Commons from German Wikipedia on 26. January 2018 and haven't been overwritten since then. According to the original upload log the photo was overwritten on dewiki on 9. June 2008 but the original uploader (Ingo2802) reverted this change. Either way, everything seems to be fine. --jdx Re: 20:04, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

File:HortenseManciniJacobFerdinandVoet1675.jpgEdit

Hello! I wonder if this file is in need of splitting? If you look at it you see that another picture was uploaded first, depicting the same person, but with other clothing, but that picture is now hidden behind the later one. I think the later one has better quality, but perhaps the first one deserves it's own file here on Commons?

Split File:Schönberg.jpgEdit

In File:Schönberg.jpg there is a reverted version which should be split from the others if possible.

  On hold Jeez, another database error, just like in the topic below. Anyway, I moved the reverted version to File:Schönberg (Vogtland).jpg and then deleted it because it was duplicate of File:Bahnhof Schönberg, Straßenseite.jpg. --jdx Re: 19:15, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

File:MTA Long Island Bus Orion VII Next Generation bus.jpgEdit

  • Request: Split
  • Reason: Overwrite

Previous versions of this image are almost entirely in various locations in Nassau County, New York. All five version are the same make and model of bus, but not the same fleet number. The current version (File:MTA Long Island Bus Orion VII Next Generation bus.jpg;) which is in Amityville, in Suffolk County, New York should be kept in tact. Older versions should be named as follows;

The first three older versions have separate descriptions fitting each version. The fourth version never had a change in the description, and could be anywhere between Flushing Main Street (LIRR station) in the NYC Borough of Queens and Glen Cove, New York, which is in Nassau County, NY. This picture was taken in the days before the N21 route was truncated from it's previous western terminus with Flushing Main Street LIRR station to the current western terminus at Great Neck (LIRR station). A new description for the fourth version will be required. --DanTD (talk) 14:49, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

Please, let me know when you get the other versions back. I don't think the original uploader would be too happy about this. Also, I'm going to hold off any other requested splits until the error is resolved. ----DanTD (talk) 20:54, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

The correct description for File:MTA Long Island Bus Orion VII NG N35 Nassau Community College.jpg is actually missing. I'm sorry I didn't check on this when you restored the images, but this still isn't entirely resolved.

File:NYC Transit Authority GMC TDH-5303A 8466.jpgEdit

  • Request: Split
  • Reason: Overwrite

Each version of this image is located in completely separate neighborhoods in Brooklyn, New York City. All three version are the same make, model and fleet number of bus. The current version should keep the existing name File:NYC Transit Authority GMC TDH-5303A 8466.jpg, while older versions should be named as follows;

The histories are in both earlier versions. A new category (Category:General Motors TDH-5303A (8466)) is being prepared for all three images of the bus, plus a fourth image that has nothing to do with the overwrite.

That being said, there seems to be a software bug that made an old version show on top. What luck. I will update here again once I figure how to sort that. Rehman

However feel free to move files from the 1st category to the 2nd (using e.g. HotCat) and create {{Category redirect}}. BTW. IMO these categories shouldn't be merged – IMO it is quite common that the same locomotive have diffrerent code designations depending on operator.

en:File:Cesare Maria De Vecchi.jpgit:File:Cesare Maria De Vecchi.jpgEdit

  • Request: Merge
  • Reason: Reason: These two photos share the same URL, however one of them is from the Italian Wikipedia page while the other is from the English one. The english one was created earlier this year and is a crop out of Cesare from the march on rome, and is not a portrait let alone an official portrait of him. I noticed that the Italian wikipedia uses his official portrait, which was uploaded to the site in 2014, and even has the same URL as the english one. Ive been trying to work this out with 4nn1l2 and after much talk he has decided that It would make sense for the English Wikipedia to use the official portrait. So i am making this request to finalize that and finally change the URL and picture to the right one.

--Scu ba (talk) 02:36, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

I know that we simply revert overwritten files and ask the user to upload the image as a new file under a new name according to COM:OVERWRITE. But I also think we should be flexible and consider some exceptional cases. The first version of File:Cesare Maria De Vecchi.jpg has been uploaded on 20 February 2018 which is not very old. On the other hand, it:File:Cesare Maria De Vecchi.jpg has been uploaded to the Italian Wikipedia on 23 March 2014. This file could have been transferred to Wikimedia Commons earlier. Alas, that this did not happen. Instead, a low-quality image was uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. The portrait is of higher quality and better suits the encyclopedia, so I think it deserves the simple and natural filename of Cesare Maria De Vecchi.jpg. We can rename the 1922 photo of March on Rome to something like File:Cesare Maria De Vecchi, March on Rome 1922.jpg. 4nn1l2 (talk) 07:30, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

File:- panoramio (2965).jpgFile:Undetermined Beach in Crimea; August 2010Edit

  • Request: Split and rename original version.
  • Reason: Overwritten files:
    Evidently User:Panoramio upload bot uploaded two files with the same bad name and no description for either version. Despite the lack of a description, the image infobox is clearly better suited for the first version. This version by somebody named "Kailito" is at some beach in Crimea and was taken on August 23, 2010, as evidence suggests in the archive of the original photographer's Panoramio page . The second version which was taken on June 2, 2010, is by User:Idawriter, and is of an intersection containing a Turkey Hill gas station and convenience store, somewhere in Pennsylvania, which you can tell by the small signs across from this gas station (the ones with "SR 222/310" pointing one way and "SR 222/300" pointing another). In time, both versions should get a proper name, but since the one from Pennsylvania has less info than the one from the Crimean coastline, the original version should be split off and the current one should keep the bad name and the replacement infobox that already exists in the file history. --DanTD (talk) 03:52, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

The suggested file name is invalid, a valid one would be File:Undetermined Beach in Crimea, August 2010 - panoramio.jpg (the panoramio part is usually kept).
  Info From the upload commentary you can see that the active file information is for the overwritten file. With reverse image search you can find some uses of the newer file version, all for places in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I found 5 different pages on tripmondo.com where the image is embedded, but more important is they provide there geo coordinates according to which the petrol/gas station is in 39°53′41″N 76°10′18″W / 39.8948°N 76.1718°W / 39.8948; -76.1718 which is apparently in Quarryville, PA, crossing of West State Street with West 4th Street (in Lancaster County) – and Google Street View confirmed this.
So a suitable name for the newer image could be File:Gas station in Quarryville, PA - panoramio.jpg. — Speravir – 23:13, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

@Speravir: I suggest File:TurkeyHill gas station in Quarryville, PA - panoramio.jpg.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 06:50, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
I cannot argue with that, because I have no clue, but, yes, Turkey Hill and TurkeyHill can be read in Google Maps. — Speravir – 22:11, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
I wouldn't argue with Jeff G.'s suggestion for the latter one either. ----DanTD (talk) 14:09, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
BTW, I just found out this gas station is at the west end of the overlap with U.S. Route 222 in Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania Route 372. So that's more categories for the newer version. ----DanTD (talk) 14:25, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
UPDATE: I also found another image from Quarryville, Pennsylvania overlapping a Crimean Beach taken by the same photographer. Good thing I didn't rename that one yet, but I'm considering a new name for that duplicate. ----DanTD (talk) 18:00, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Now can you restore the previous version, so I can give it the proper name? ----DanTD (talk) 18:57, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
  Done The beach is under File:Undetermined Beach in Crimea, August 2010 - panoramio 46383447.jpg and the gas station under File:TurkeyHill gas station in Quarryville, PA - panoramio.jpg. Now I will look at the next file. --jdx Re: 19:24, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. I was going to start a whole new thread on that one, but I'd like to recommend the name File:PA 372 at NE Corner of Lime Street; Quarryville, PA - panoramio.jpg for the new version. I've got Idawriter's version at this link if you'd like. ----DanTD (talk) 19:29, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Apparently also more images in this range should be checked. @Jdx: After the new finding probably the beach image should get number 1, so the second could get no. 2, what do you think? — Speravir – 19:40, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Actually, I considered the previous numbers for the Crimean beachfront. The original request could probably get File:Undetermined Beach in Crimea, August 2010 - panoramio (2965).jpg, and the one that hasn't been split yet might be better off with File:Undetermined Beach in Crimea, August 2010 - panoramio (2961).jpg. If there are that many unidentified beach scenes from Crimea, we may have a pretty serious problem. ----DanTD (talk) 19:46, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
  Done The second beach is under File:Undetermined Beach in Crimea, August 2010 - panoramio 46383431.jpg, the first ends with 46383447 – I have used full Panoramio's IDs. --jdx Re: 20:08, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
