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)

Your best shot 2019Edit

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

It's early 2020, which means it's time again to look back at photographs taken over the course of the past 12 months. As always, I'm curious – what would you consider your best shot of 2019 and why? I invite you to share your image and your thoughts in order to provide others with the opportunity to celebrate, learn, and enjoy:

Your best shot 2019

Thanks for all your effort in sharing your vision of the world with others under a free license!

All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 20:00, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Happy birthday!Edit

Jeevan, I wish you a happy birthday and all the best. Thanks for all your magnificent contributions to Wikimedia Commons and for sharing the beauty of India with the world! --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 01:54, 6 May 2020 (UTC) P.S. I should have said "Happy belated birthday", yet it's still May 5th here in Chico, California ;-)

Thanks Frank! Jee 15:16, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

Euchariomyia divesEdit

Dear Jeevan,

Hope you are doing well. Recently I have uploaded one of the insects (Bee fly) images taken from Valparai to iNaturalist. It was identified as Euchariomyia dives. The researchers found this species in China and they have used one of your image in their publication - see here - https://zenodo.org/record/194247#.XsFOLGgzY2x. Ignore if you already aware of this.

There was no wikipedia article for this species so I have just created one using your images (both male and female). I wanted to thank you for those beautiful images. Please note that the file names still says Bombyliidae by kadavoor so thought I would let you know in case if you want to rename it. Thanks. Wish you a good health.

Thanks Jegan for this info! No; I was not aware of it. Thanks, Jee 14:12, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

A Sharp EyeEdit

Hi Jee. I know you have not been active for some time.I hope you are well. You may not have noticed I have been publishing a monthly magazine that showcases my photos. I also try to promote Wikipedia/Commons. I wondered whether I could use [[:File:Attacus taprobanis-Kadavoor-2018-07-07-001.jpg |this image]] in the magazine? Charlesjsharp (talk) 08:38, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Sure; you can use it! Thanks. Jee 04:35, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

Commons Photographers User Group: Meeting on September 26 and other stuffEdit

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

I've got a quick update for you, containing three items:

  • I’d like to invite you to our group’s second Virtual Meeting on Saturday, September 26, 2020. As last time, this meeting will serve as an opportunity to get to know each other better, share learnings, and connect in times of the global COVID-19 pandemic. If you'd like to present, please add your name and the proposed topic to the list on the talk page.
  • Also, I'd like to start a conversation about how we should be sharing responsibility for the user group going forward. I'd love to get some help when it comes to organizing things and I'm convinced that we can achieve more if a couple of people helped with coordinating stuff.
  • Finally, the Wikimedia Foundation has asked me to spread the word about their latest survey: Universal Code of Conduct Survey. The goal is to create a safer environment on Wikimedia projects and the Foundation gathers feedback prior to coming up with a first draft.

Hope to see you at the Zoom meeting in September!

All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 18:42, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

Reminder: User Group Meeting this SaturdayEdit

Dear Commons Photographers User Group member,

This is a quick reminder that our second virtual meeting will take place this Saturday, September 26. The agenda entails presentations about drone photography, about the story behind a featured picture, and about the future of LRMediaWiki. We'll also discuss photographers’ contacts with the Wikimedia Foundation and the election of representatives for our user group. You'll find information about all of this on the event page:

I'm also inviting you to share some information about yourself and your photography work with other members of the user group on our new membership list:

I hope you're well during these difficult times. All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 15:39, 23 September 2020 (UTC)
