Welcome to Wikimedia Commons, Maile66!


A cup of coffee for you!Edit

  Thanks for the conversation.

I might say more privately but I see that you are not accepting emails. I can follow up with everything on wiki, which probably is best. Since wiki's process does not always communicate gratitude to the extent that short emails sometimes can, I want to be clear that I appreciate the conversation you started.

I am less concerned about any particular case and more concerned that I think similar situations happen routinely. I am not sure how to address these things but I am thinking. Blue Rasberry (talk) 12:49, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

  • @Bluerasberry: Gaming the system, noticed because of my AIV work on Wikipedia. Posting this on the Commons VP thread for the record, and my Commons talk page so it's there indefinitely for my own reference. I just noticed on the Veronica Lake talk page how this went down, and I think some safeguards should be in place so it doesn't happen this way again. The original uploader got you to be the one to post to the talk page. In such a situation, the person who contacted you will not be reverted/blocked from that talk page. It falls on your posting, and you did nothing but respond to a request. That loophole needs to be changed so it doesn't happen again. Maile66 (talk) 12:09, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Village pump draftEdit


I started a draft for the Village Pump about the deletion process here. It's just a start, and your input would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to edit it.CaroleHenson (talk) 21:20, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I added, and you should feel free to reword any of it. I feel every editor across the wikis should have the recourse to be heard if they are blocked. Maile66 (talk) 21:56, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
Absolutely! Your edits were lovely, thanks! If you don't mind, I'll post your name as a contributor to the posting.CaroleHenson (talk) 22:02, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
Yes, please add my name to this. I think emending the process is much better for the long-term. I'm an admin on English Wikipedia. Admins make mistakes all the time. Maile66 (talk) 22:12, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
  Done. It's posted at Commons:Village pump#Block process.–CaroleHenson (talk) 22:26, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

File:Conesville Power Plant.JPGEdit

Thank you for editing File:Conesville Power Plant.JPG. I appreciate it as the article is being prepared to be shown in the DYK section soon. FunksBrother (talk) 16:03, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

File:Two women helping in the war effort - NARA - 195503.jpgEdit

Could you indicate where you got that this picture,or the women, are from or in Alaska? thanks, Dankarl (talk) 03:57, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

If you feel this was in error, please feel free to change the category. That was 4 years ago, and I can't tell you anything more than is in the edit history. It looks like part of a group of images I categorized in 2014 via Cat-a-lot. Too long ago for me to know. Could be an error on my part,. Maile66 (talk) 15:36, 11 December 2018 (UTC)


File:HotmikadoBill.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has 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 it, such as a copyright issue.

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!
