reason Since I thought that there were few people..I'll do my best. EVandRailway (talk) 14:21, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

  Question @EVandRailway: can you please (reverse) translate to English what is currently inscribed in Commons:File renaming/ja #FR2 and FR3? You likely misunderstand what does the true Criterion 3 mean. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 16:12, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

(simply) FR2…Ambiguous meaning, FR3…Incorrect name
ex) FR2 JAPAN.png→Flag of Japan.png, FR3 Flag of Japon.png→Flag of Japan.png--EVandRailway (talk) 23:16, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
@EVandRailway: which name would be good for what is now file:Japon Akihabara1.jpg? Which criterion to use for renaming? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:05, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

I would like to become a filemover to help renaming road sign diagrams (specifically in the Philippines) Thank you. hueman1 (talk) 03:18, 7 October 2018 (UTC)


I often find wrong/incomplete information in file titles (e.g. photos of ancient inscriptions) and spend a lot of time researching information about files without a usable description (e.g. [1] or [2]), so it would be helpful if I were able to move these media to the right title myself. Thank you. DerMaxdorfer (talk) 17:41, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Having quite some experience on Commons, I often sort files into the correct categories and improve missing descriptions. When doing so I often also notice bad filenames (according to the criteria of our renaming guideline). Instead of asking others to rename the files (as I have done many times now), I could do that myself. I will also take a look at the categories of requests for file renaming and help to handle the requests there. I promise to use the right to rename files only very carefully and exactly according to the criteria in our renaming guideline. Thank you! Aristeas (talk) 09:27, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

  Done. --A.Savin 11:46, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

  •   Oppose I do not trust this user because they uploaded more files, which they agreed not to do as a condition of being unblocked. Pinging @Guanaco, Yann.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 13:27, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
  Not done Long history of actions not in line with COM:POLICY. Please use {{rename}} for now. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:03, 18 October 2018 (UTC)


When uploading and categorizing my images, I repeatedly notice falsely identified objects. I can correct the desription and the categories and than have to request a move. I would like to be able to carry out such moves myself, also when I notice I have misspelled a name in the upload assistent. Thank you. Bjs (talk) 13:23, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
  Done --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:02, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
