File:Humber 1904 Humberette on London to Brighton VCR 2014.jpgEdit

I regret I have just reverted an edit you made during today changing a file name to Humber 1904 Humberette on London to Brighton VCR. Unfortunately a newbie user: Zcarstvnz suffering mistaken beliefs is requesting a great deal of unnecessary name changes to files. I am unable to find how I can draw this to the attention of renamers. Please would you help me do that. Many thanks, Eddaido (talk) 09:03, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi, see above. Athe Administrators board. With such renamings, we need to trust our users. If this don't work, we have ofcourse a problem. Marcus Cyron (talk) 10:24, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, Eddaido (talk) 11:29, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Renaming image declinedEdit

Why did you decline the renaming of File:The soldier in our Civil War - a pictorial history of the conflict, 1861-1865, illustrating the valor of the soldier as displayed on the battle-field, from sketches drawn by Forbes, Waud, Taylor, (14759794691).jpg to File:Interior of the Turret of the USS Montauk (14759794691).jpg. You justified doing this as a non-compliance with renaming guidelines. What "is" non-compliant about that name? --BeckenhamBear (talk) 09:46, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

This is part of a series, all images names the same way. So why just 2 images should be renamed? The old titles are not wrong. Marcus Cyron (talk) 10:38, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
The images are etchings covering an enormous and diverse subject, taken from a book. The project similar thousands of etchings from before the 20th century. Each image is eligible for different multiple diverse categories. Without renaming, they are irretrievable in the main, and difficult to recognize and use (even within a sub category). All of these images have to be re-named in time. The master category for the images is the book title. This a very time consuming process, hence files tend to be re-named at random, usually when used on Wikipedia, and found at random. There are plenty of precedents on the Wiki for similar etchings. Examples Category:The antiquities of England and Wales (1785) and Category:Parrots in captivity. Vol. 2. Additionally I attempted to re-name the image as the Artist and Publisher originally intended. Will you now re-name please. --BeckenhamBear (talk) 12:39, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
So please say this (in short) in your renaming requests - and when you do it, please not just one or two, then all these images. Marcus Cyron (talk) 13:31, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
