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)

Viraj, is this encyclopedic image?Edit

Hi Viraj, is this an encyclopedic image. This is used in one Wikipedia page even. In my knowledge, these images are best to be avoided. Let me know your opinion.

Also, I have applied for administrator rights for both Gujarati Wiktionary and Wikiquote so that we can manage them locally. Do vote here. --Harshil169 (talk) 08:00, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Harshil169, As per COM:NPOV, This is not a good reason to delete a file. But it may fail COM:SCOPE since it's unused at the time I'm writing this message. You can nominate it for regular deletion. If you have any further questions then please feel free to ask me, Thankyou. -- CptViraj (📧) 09:29, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
I am in conflict with user right now. Thus, I will avoid to nominate it for deletion. I already got one of his file deleted for commons which was blatant copyright violation. You can nominate this for deletion and yes, don't forget to vote if we want to keep the projects continue.--Harshil169 (talk) 09:34, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
@Harshil169: Well, I'm not happy with the venue of your admin request, It must be at guwiktionary and guwikiquote not at guwiki, I will explain my concern further at guwiki. And ya I'll look after this file. Thanks for the note. -- CptViraj (📧) 09:49, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
Actually, those are flagship projects under Gujarati Wikipedia. To have administrator access on Gujarati wiki source, Sushant Savla had to request on Wikipedia. —Harshil169 (talk) 09:55, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for voting! If you wish then you can also apply for rollback rights on Gujarati Wikipedia for Wiktionary. And if I will be given admin rights then demand them from me. It’ll make lots of work easier.—Harshil169 (talk) 15:30, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

@Harshil169: by the way, I saw that you are editing using mobile. Why not enable AMC mode via Special:MobileOptions? Masum Reza📞 15:40, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
@Masumrezarock100: Thanks for this! Will activate it. I mostly edit from Laptop provided by Wikimedia foundation yesterday. 😉—Harshil169 (talk) 15:45, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
@Harshil169: We have lot of things to fix at guwiktionary, Local sysops can't grant rollbacker on guwiktionary. We'll discuss further at guwiktionary not here. Thankyou. -- CptViraj (📧) 16:11, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!Edit


Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at Wikimedia Commons.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at

Thank you!

Notice of Impending Speedy DeletionEdit

@CptViraj Hi CptViraj, Last week you added to our userpage a 'Notice of Impending Speedy Deletion' "User:Beeld&Geluid Stadsarchief Delft is considered to fulfill the criteria for speedy deletion " etc We are a GLAM institution, and uploaded Public Domain collection on Wikimedia from our archives, during the Wikitechstorm recently in Amsterdam. The cause of your notice may be that we added information about the Archives, including a weblink. After your notice I immediately deleted all the information, including the link, so I hope you ccan undo this pending deletion? Could you take down the notice also, please? Furthermore: what is in your opinion the right place to add information about our collections and our institute? Is it our User Page or elsewhere? Thanks for helping! kind regards, Beeld&Geluid Stadsarchief Delft (talk) 14:55, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

Hi, you can re-add information since Commons doesn't have approved userpage policy. CSD nomination was declined by admin Ankry. Thankyou! -- CptViraj (📧) 08:14, 4 December 2019 (UTC)
