Hello, Chaddy!

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

File:Bonduelle.tin.cans.JPGEdit

You wrote:

"the copyrighted elements are the chief motive"

It is just your OPINION, not a fact. The Commons community was not unanimous in this case, we did not find a consensus there.

It doesn't matter, this picture was not very important. But it is very pity I observe how the copyright paranoia expands.

Tell me what's yor opinion in similiar (part of them show even more chief motive) cases: Commons:Deletion requests/File:AyranGetränk.jpg? What would be your opinion in other similiar cases I mentioned in the discussion three months ago - Category:Instant soups, Category:Instant noodles?

Julo (talk) 17:07, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

I didn´t wrote your image was the only problematic one. There are many other photos of packages that show copyrighted material and have to be deleted. But not every package is copyrighted. E. g. this one is not because it´s ineligible for copyright. Chaddy (talk) 18:17, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
P. S.: And if an image is a copyright violation there is no need for a consensus to delete it... Chaddy (talk) 18:18, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Images of Korean War Veterans MemorialEdit

"Never ever delete images before it's clarified if they can be transwikified to a Wikipedia edition." <- Wrong. Blatant violations of our rules can be deleted on sight. If Commons admins were to follow your principle, we would have to wait forever, as most projects don't react until the files are actually deleted. This deletion request lasted for 12 days. There was ample time for people to react.

This being said, I will undelete those files to allow for transfer. Do you need all of them or only the two pictures that were used on de:? Will three days be enough time to make the transfer? You can also find more pictures of Korean War Veterans Memorial on en: (there's a gallery on en:Talk:Korean War Veterans Memorial). Jastrow (Λέγετε) 11:32, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

We need an information system so that we aren´t took by surprise when images are deleted on Commons...
An by the way: If you consider that some requests last for several months than 12 days are quite few...
I don´t know how much time it needs to transfer the pictures to de-WP. That has to do an admin (because normal users can´t overwrite images that are located on Commons. I will inform you when the transfer is done.
And yes, please undelete all images for now. Chaddy (talk) 13:35, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
CommonsTicker was designed to improve communication between Commons and the local projects. Is it used on de:? Also, I didn't know about the German use of FOP pictures, else I'd have left a warning on de:Korean War Veterans Memorial.
Don't tarry, please. We had to delete those pictures follocing the outcome of a lawsuit, so Commons isn't immune from being sued as well. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 19:27, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for temporarly undeleting the pictures. Now we have to wait until an admin executes this request. Chaddy (talk) 20:49, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:BF-Schriftzug.pngEdit

Hi, I'm not trying to silence you, but please use the right forum. Archived DRs should not be edited, and most people won't even see your comment. If you have good grounds to contest the closing decision, you can take it to COM:UNDEL. –Tryphon 10:57, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

No, I won´t start another dicussion, but I also won´t let censor my opinion... Chaddy (talk) 13:55, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
You're being childish. I'm not sure how you expect to achieve anything productive by not following our procedures. –Tryphon 14:02, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
That has nothing to do with being childish. But I don´t see why you have anything against ma contribution to the dicussion.
And by the way: You used sysop rights in an edit war you were involved yourself. That´s against the rules... Please unprotect the page again and let (if needs must) decide another neutral sysop about this case. Chaddy (talk) 14:41, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
I didn't think it was a war. I just enforced what's written at the top of the archived DR: This deletion debate is now closed. Please do not make any edits to this archive. If editors cannot follow this simple rule, protection is the straightforward course of action. No judgment on my part, it's not an emotional response, I'm not biased one way or the other, I'm just blindly applying the rule: do not make any edits to this archive. If you want to contest the deletion, see COM:UNDEL. If you want to contest my actions, see COM:AN.
But seriously, why do you insist on having your comment there, where no one will see it, instead of COM:UNDEL? I'm not your enemy, I'm not conspiring against you or trying to shut you up; we have procedures for this kind of situations, as I pointed out to you, and following them is the best way to get what you want. Whereas this behavior will get you nowhere. –Tryphon 15:32, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

File moverEdit

The functionality of the template {{Rename}} has recently changed. You might need to clear your cache to see the changes. If successful you should then be able to use the new "Quick adding" link in the template to instruct CommonsDelinker to replace the old name with the new name in all wikis. Please use that every time you rename a file. If further questions arise, feel free to write on my talk page --DieBuche (talk) 10:00, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Hallo!

Dem Commons:Forum entnahm ich, dass du mit der Vorgehensweise eines Admins nicht zufrieden bist. Da dieser Admin derzeit in einer Abstimmungsphase diskutiert wird, in der es darum geht ob er auch weiterhin mit Administratorrechten editieren darf, würden deine Erfahrung sicherlich einen Zusatz zur Diskussion darstellen: Commons:Administrators/Requests and votes/Kameraad Pjotr (de-adminship) <- hier ist die Diskussion.

Verschiebung eines meines FotosEdit

Ich ersuche dich, dass du das rückgängig machst, denn ich hoffe sehr wohl, dass du so viel Toleranz aufbringst und die Betitelung eines Fotos dem Fotografen zugestehst oder leben wir hier schon in einer Diktatur? -- Bwag (talk) 15:10, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Update RedirectsEdit

Hey Chaddy, meinst du Cross Mediatype Redirects sollten generell nicht erstellt werden? Denn momentan gibt es keine Restriction im ReplaceScript. Jedoch könnte ich diese einbauen! -- User: Perhelion 13:47, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

Ich finde das nicht gut, weil es zwei verschiedene Dateitypen sind und das meiner Ansicht nach eher Verwirrung stiftet. Beispiel: Auf meiner Beobachtungsliste in de-WP ist deine Dateiersetzung beim Artikel zur KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt angezeigt worden. Ich wollte über den Editkommentar zur alten png kommen, landete aber bei der svg. Erschwert wird das noch, weil Dateiredirects, die auf Commons liegen, in de-WP natürlich nicht als Redirects erkannt werden und dementprechend auch nicht als Redirect markiert werden.
Ich fände es also besser, wenn man nur auf dieselbe Datei weiterleitet und nicht auf eine inhaltlich identische Datei, die aber in einem anderen Format vorliegt. Chaddy (talk) 13:55, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
Ich stimme dir zu, allerdings bräuchte ich mehr Stimmen für die Änderung, kannst du da vlt. etwas auftreiben!? (abgesehen davon dass es extra eine konkrete Löschbegründung dafür gibt) -- User: Perhelion 14:05, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

Most Dutch people don't speak stone coal EnglishEdit

(stone coal English?)

Revision of Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems

"And in fact I was the one who spoke out threads" That's gotta hurt!!

"I'm out here." Are you what they were looking for in The X-Files? (seriously: you meant "I'm out of here.", "I'm out here" is pretty confusing)

"You know how to de-escalate." Yeah, he does. I do too, but I may choose not to. "I will keep an eye on you" does not have any direct Dutch translation which would be less menacing than "I will keep an eye on you". Most translations actually sound slightly more menacing, so the English may have even softened the tone. These block threats are nothing new.

This doesn't mean Jcb was wrong. To be frank I just can't be bothered to really look into this, Jcb was probably right but communication is not his forte. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 00:45, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Re:File:Eichstätt 1263.jpgEdit

Hallo, Chaddy! Es handelt sich um einen Abguss von einem Orginalsiegel, den ich vom Bayrischen Hauptstaatsarchiv mit dieser Datumsangabe gekauft habe und der seither Bestandteil meiner Sammlung von Siegelabgüssen ist. Im Zweifelsfall würde ich mich eher auf die Angabe im Wikipediaartikel verlassen bzw. den Autor nach seiner Quelle fragen. Falls meine ursprüngliche Angabe falsch ist, kannst du sie selbstverständlich ändern. lg - Xenophon (talk) 19:07, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

Hallo Xenophon, ich antworte mal hier. Zuerst mal danke für deine Antwort!
Ich hab nach einer kurzen Suche das gefunden: [1]. Das Siegel wurde 1256 erstmals erwähnt, Adrucke davon sind seit 1295 erhalten. Das älteste erhaltene Original stammt von 1304, wie wiederum diese Seite angibt. Die Informationen im Wikipedia-Artikel scheinen also weitgehend zu stimmen.
Theoretisch ist es also durchaus plausibel, dass das Jahr 1263 für das von dir hochgeladene Siegel korrekt ist. Da es "nur" ein Abguss ist würde es also nicht in Konflikt stehen mit der Aussage, dass das älteste erhaltene Original von 1304 stamme (Kopien von älteren Siegeln können also durchaus existieren). Allerdings steht auf der verlinkten Webseite des HDBG, dass die "Siegelführung seit 1295 belegt" sei, womit man sich wohl auf den Adruck von 1295 bezieht. Wenn aber eine Kopie eines älteren Siegels existiert, müsste diese Aussage korrigiert werden. Entweder stimmt also diese Aussage nicht, oder die Jahresangabe 1263 stimmt nicht. Da sollte man vielleicht beim Bayerischen Hauptstaatsarchiv nachfragen, evtl. haben die auch noch Infos hierzu. Hast du noch Kontakt zu denen und könntest da nachfragen? Ansonsten kann ich aber auch mal eine Mail schreiben.
Aufgefallen ist mir das übrigens, weil ich dein Foto in den Artikel über Eichstätt einfügen wollte. Würde gut in den besagten Abschnitt zur Wappengeschichte passen. Damit warte ich aber vielleicht noch, bis das mit der Jahreszahl geklärt ist, sonst stehen da evtl. falsche Infos im Artikel. Chaddy (talk) 21:34, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

Important message for file moversEdit

A community discussion has been closed where the consensus was to grant all file movers the suppressredirect user right. This will allow file movers to not leave behind a redirect when moving files and instead automatically have the original file name deleted. Policy never requires you to suppress the redirect, suppression of redirects is entirely optional.

Possible acceptable uses of this ability:

  • To move recently uploaded files with an obvious error in the file name where that error would not be a reasonable redirect. For example: moving "Sheep in a tree.jpg" to "Squirrel in a tree.jpg" when the image does in fact depict a squirrel.
  • To perform file name swaps.
  • When the original file name contains vandalism. (File renaming criterion #5)

Please note, this ability should be used only in certain circumstances and only if you are absolutely sure that it is not going to break the display of the file on any project. Redirects should never be suppressed if the file is in use on any project. When in doubt, leave a redirect. If you forget to suppress the redirect in case of file name vandalism or you are not fully certain if the original file name is actually vandalism, leave a redirect and tag the redirect for speedy deletion per G2.

The malicious or reckless breaking of file links via the suppressredirect user right is considered an abuse of the file mover right and is grounds for immediate revocation of that right. This message serves as both a notice that you have this right and as an official warning. Questions regarding this right should be directed to administrators. --Majora (talk) 21:35, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
