>"The removal of attribution can be done post DR with VFC."
Hello Majora. In reference to your recent reply at the Village Pump above, do you expect someone who calls themselves a "complete neophyte to Wikimedia Commons" who explicitly said "I don't know how to use any of the code/jargon" to understand your sentence above? You could at least provide them with some links. Just my 2 cents :) Kaldari (talk) 14:47, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

They clearly already know what a DR is. Acronym or not, they filed several. And I was expecting to do the removal myself and have listed it on my to do list so the point is moot. But thanks for your two cents. --Majora (talk) 20:37, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

Changing a translatable pageEdit

Please do not enumerate translation units manually as you did here. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't – it's very easy to make a mistake. Just leave it to the Translate Extension as mentioned on mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page translation example#Step 4: Making changes. --jdx Re: 10:28, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

My apologies, Jdx. I had always run the translation software after the fact to ensure that it worked properly and I had never seen it screw up so I just continued to do it that way. I will make sure I do it the other way in the future. Thank you for pointing that out to me. --Majora (talk) 20:24, 9 July 2019 (UTC)


I am an authorized media crew of AXM FUTSAL MANADO, uploading the image file was one of my programme in my crew. Turning down the file and cant be use again because of originality is such a disgrace in the wikipedia world. Please be more responsible on the act of your on turning down me as the user of that image. Aepangemanan (talk) 04:06, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

You should read the giant notice at the top of this page. We don't take people's word for it. You listed it was your "own work" which is clearly not true. You being "authorized" does not make it your own work. In any case, we have processes for such things. Specifically our volunteer copyright response team. Which will allow you to prove that you are who you say you are, release the image under a proper license, and get it restored. --Majora (talk) 04:09, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

template edit helpEdit

Hi Majora, can you revert this edit? Taking the CU page as a reference, I believe that the edit causes

@大诺史: I'm not quite sure why that would have to be reversed when the template's documentation shows the proper use of it. The way that one was done is not how the documentation says to do it. It seems like most of the pages that are using it are doing it properly. There should be a way to fix the others. --Majora (talk) 16:54, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
  Done All fixed. Only 167 pages needed to be changed out of the thousands that used it. Note, translated pages should be updated by FuzzyBot so those might take a little bit. I'll rerun the search in a day or two just to make sure everything is updated properly. --Majora (talk) 17:54, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Courtesy deletionEdit

Hi. I'm OTRS agent. I've working on ticket:2019071410000532 about this. I've verified the identity of the user and he's reliable. Regards. --Ganí medes 23:32, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Mkay. This is going to take a while to go through all 1,000+ images but I added them all to a holding area (Category:Pending removals to be checked) for the time being while I slowly go through them. --Majora (talk) 02:05, 16 July 2019 (UTC)


Why did you do this? —Justin (koavf)TCM 02:08, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

@Koavf: A large scale BLP related deletion request was received at the village pump last month. The person in the original photos is a private individual and when they uploaded their photos of celebrities to Flickr they were not aware that their face would be plastered all over the Internet. They are fine with their photos being used here provided their image is removed. Per our guideline on the matter and by courtesy it was agreed that if they can confirm who they are we can go ahead and start removing it. The amount of photos from their flickr account that was uploaded here is over 1,000 so it was easier to just add the category to every photo of theirs and then go through them one at a time. While it might take me a while to get through all of them the category listing is temporary and the easiest way I could think of to make sure I'm not missing any. --Majora (talk) 02:13, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks kindly. —Justin (koavf)TCM 08:53, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
