Your FPC votesEdit
Hi, When voting for FPC, please follow Commons:Featured picture candidates criteria, not your own made-up. BTW you need to justify your opposing votes . Thanks, Yann (talk) 19:07, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
- I second this complaint. It looks very much like you are on some kind of revenge disruption for your recent failed FPC nomations/delists. I urge you to either remove your incomplete oppose votes or change them to ones that specify a correct reason per our judging criteria. It is not acceptable to oppose because you dislike photographers nominating their own photos, or that you don't like monkeys. This is your final warning. If you continue this, I shall ask an administrator to block you. -- Colin (talk) 19:44, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
- By the way you should take a look on some of the other times I have nominated pictures for the featured picture voting procedure. These nominations have failed before. So please don't try to say that I'm opposing because of my recent nomination. And my comments when opposing are not wrong, and there are no guideline saying that I must write a comment when opposing. Just saying... --Nobelpeopleuploader (talk) 22:08, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
- Hi, your votes are welcome but actions voluntarily disruptive are not of course, on my personal level the opposes without justifications are acceptable as I presume of the good faith of the voters and consider these votes as no wow. Just my opinion. -- Christian Ferrer 23:24, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Conclusion: The different opinions by different users above confirm my previous statement: "Wikimedia sites, like Commons, are the Wild West. Most of us here are amateurs. And it's normal here on Commons that people judge many other things than the pictures". --Nobelpeopleuploader (talk) 23:04, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
