SVG competition 2019

I founded a notice in main page somedays ago about SVG competition 2019. Somehow i could not register my name. Now, i can't find the notice. Can anyone give me the competition's page link? Thank you in advance. Rafi Bin Tofa (talk) 03:27, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Main Page looks inconsistent before and after log in

I've found that the main page has sightly different page layout before and after log in. Here is the comparison:

Since Wikimedia Commons introduced TemplateStyles, I suggest we can try to reconstruct this page by this way, we can make use of selector to set specific style sheets for mobile screen. --Great Brightstar (talk) 14:21, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

This is because your main page is not Main Page after logging in, as your Commons language is not English. The main page is special cased on mobile, but what the main page is depends on the interface language. is the same as logged out. (Rewriting Main Page using TemplateStyles and disabling some of the special casing would be welcome, although it won’t eliminate all of the differences, only most of them.) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 10:44, 17 April 2019 (UTC)


Is there value in setting up an error-reporting system comparable to en:WP:ERRORS? If so, how should we do it? Nyttend (talk) 04:43, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

  • In my opinion, no. Errors can be simply reported on COM:AN. English Wikipedia is overly bureaucratic. Let's not import all those unnecessary bureaucracies to Commons. 4nn1l2 (talk) 05:00, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
    • Bureaucracy? I'm just envisioning a section here for errors, plus (if convenient to set up) something that would appear in the admin backlog template if anything were sitting in the errors section. Finding Template:Motd/2019-05-08 (en) took a good deal of work, so instead of trying to fix a typo there yesterday, I was tempted to report it for someone else to handle, but I wasn't sure where best to report it. What could be wrong with a permanent (i.e. "do not archive") section here for error-reporting, or an automatic notification in the backlog template? Nyttend (talk) 01:04, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
      Notification in the backlog may not be suitable for Main Page errors, as they need immediate attention (obviously within hours), but we have heavy backlogs here on Commons and few people care (almost 6 month for DRs, years for CfD, 200 days for OTRS, many days for edit requests, etc.)
      Setting up yet another (sub)page to watch and monitor for some errors is also bureaucratic. How many Main Page errors get reported on average? I haven't seen many (if any) such reports. Therefore, I still think reporting errors to COM:AN is the best option to get things fixed. 4nn1l2 (talk) 14:32, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
      • It would be appreciated if you read proposals before creating straw men and attacking them. Nyttend (talk) 01:13, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
        I have read the proposal and I oppose it. It's as simple as that. It would be nice if the focus was on content, rather than people. 4nn1l2 (talk) 01:23, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Primero hay que encontrar una foto de contenido libre, véase esta página para más información. La foto se puede subir a Wikimedia Commons usando Special:UploadWizard. Después se puede agregar al artículo de Wikipedia. —Granger (talk  · contribs) 00:13, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Wrong information

आपके पेज पे 9 मई के आसपास किसी ने जान बूझकर सिसोदिया सब्द एवं राजपूत शब्द को निकाल कर भील शब्द प्रयोग किया है तो उस पूरे एडिटिंग को निकाल दे। Jayrajsinh B Raol (talk) 15:53, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

On 9th May, on your page, someone purposely used the word Bhil by removing the word Sisodiya Sad and Rajput, then remove that whole editing
