Scope format for works of artEdit

Another Misidentified Promoted ImageEdit

File:Passiflora coccinea 001.jpg now renamed to File:Passiflora miniata 001.jpg may be misidentified and not valid in the scope it was voted for. The user who doubts the identification just edited the scope in the VI tag. That is probably not a good idea. Can someone who is more familiar with VIs handle this? --Andreas Stiasny (talk) 10:01, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Two files closed and removed but not promotedEdit

Here by VICbot, these two files: File:Eurasian Tree Sparrow Head.jpg and File:Epitonium clathrus mediterraneum 01.JPG. Nomination pages: Commons:Valued_image_candidates/Eurasian_Tree_Sparrow_Head.jpg and Commons:Valued_image_candidates/Epitonium_clathrus_mediterraneum_01.JPG. The former image is mine, the latter from User:Llez. User:Archaeodontosaurus User:DeFacto Does this happen often? Other images seem to have been processed properly. Perhaps DeFacto closed the noms too early? ― Gerifalte Del Sabana 13:59, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Yes sometimes there are mistakes, you have to be careful. The images can then be promoted manually. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 15:33, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
@GerifalteDelSabana: yes, occasionally VICbot doesn't complete the task. But looking at the sparrow image, I see that the name of the image doesn't match the name of the candidate page, or the references within it. Perhaps the image file was renamed without a corresponding rename of the candidate file and its contents being updated to match the new image name. -- DeFacto (talk). 17:56, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
I've tagged both images by hand. -- DeFacto (talk). 18:04, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
