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?
- 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?
- 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.
