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]]

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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.

"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?

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)
done, images now in german wp --MBq (talk) 09:40, 20 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)

Commons:Administrators/Requests and votes/Kameraad Pjotr (de-adminship)Edit


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.

Gruß, High Contrast (talk) 09:21, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Notification about possible deletionEdit

  Some contents have been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether they should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at their entry.

If you created these pages, please note that the fact that they have been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with them.
Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

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)

Ich werd das ganz sicher nicht rückgängig machen. Der rechte Kampfbegriff "Völkerwanderung" wird in keinster Weise dem neutralen Standpunkt gerecht.
Wikipedia ist ein Wiki. Ich muss dir sicher nicht erklären, wie Wikis funktionieren. Das gilt selbstverständlich auch für die Namen von Dateien. Chaddy (talk) 15:51, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
"Der rechte Kampfbegriff" - hast Du schon wieder dem Fröhlichen Türken alias Alkim dein Konto "übergeben"? -- Bwag (talk) 16:05, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
Mit Sicherheit. Chaddy (talk) 18:48, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
