Renaming reasonEdit

I found a picture with the extension .JPG. Is it allowed to ask for a renaming to .jpg? QZanden (talk) 18:26, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

@QZanden: if this is the only reason to change the file name, then don’t do it, please. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 18:32, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
@Incnis Mrsi: thanks for the quick reply, then I won't ask for a renaming. QZanden (talk) 18:37, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

Capitalization by original uploaderEdit

Should we fulfill a rename request by the original uploader (criterion#1) when the only change requested is capitalization (criterion#1 to decline)? File:Retablo de San Salvador de los Escapulados (Peñafiel).jpg is an example. At first, I declined it. Then, I accepted it due to insistence. I fixed the criterion however (3 --> 1). 4nn1l2 (talk) 10:16, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

@4nn1l2: Since it doesn't say otherwise, I think we should honor every reasonable request that does not violate our naming guidelines. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 14:28, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

Criterion 1 translationEdit

Hello, I see that the translation between the french and the english version @AlvaroMolina, Wargaz: of the first criterion 1 is not good :

  • fr A la demande du televerseur
  • en : At the original uploader’s request

Which version is good ? Olivier LPB (talk) 08:35, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

I guess that it intends to say "the original uploader (of the current version)". You can try to submit a renaming request with criterion 1 on a file which you never uploaded before, and it would remind you that "Be honest: You are not the uploader". I can select criterion 1, thus the wiki regnoized me as the original uploader already. --Wargaz (talk) 08:57, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
@AlvaroMolina:, apology for "bumping" into this conversation, but you might take a look at téléverseur. Hope that is helpful.   Lotje (talk) 13:06, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
In fact the problem is for : "original" Olivier LPB (talk) 13:58, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
@Olivier LPB: if you show me the context, I might be able to find out where to look for a proper solution. Thank you for your time. :-) Lotje (talk) 15:19, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
I just noticed ceux dont vous êtes l'importateur, une solution élégante --> combine both? Lotje (talk) 15:19, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
Here we spoke about the french wikipedia. I just want to know of the uploader is for the first version or for all the version. Olivier LPB (talk) 15:22, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
Ah, now I see, sorry I could not be of any help. You might wish to try at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard. Lotje (talk) 15:26, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
