FAQEdit

Q. What is this page?

A. This is an automatically-generated gallery which includes a list of "notable" uploads. There are several criteria for a notable upload.


Q. Why is my file on this page?

A.
  • If your file is listed under the Files in non image format by new users, it means that you have fewer than 150 edits on Commons (other projects don't count).
  • If the file is listed under No recognized license or NLD tag found, it means the file is missing critical upload information.


Q. What is the purpose of this page?

A. Over time, we've noticed that problematic uploads often fit into certain patterns. This gallery helps experienced users to flag these files.


Q. Have I done something wrong? Is my file problematic?

A. There is a very good chance your file is not at all problematic! Many uploads on this page are good, and the majority of users are positive contributors. This is only a tool used by experienced patrollers to identify potential problems.


Q. Is there a way I can opt out of having my uploads on this page?

A.
  • If you don't want your file listed under Files in non image format by new users, you can add your username to User:OgreBot/gallery-opt-out. Once you reach 150 edits on Commons, it will no longer be listed anyway.
  • At this time it is not possible to opt out of listings for untagged files.


Q. My question isn't addressed here. What can I do?

A. Feel free to leave a note on the bot's maintainer's talk page.
