PhotosEdit

Wondering if you had the opportunity next time you were in Colombo Fort to take some photos of the Grand Oriental Hotel? Dan arndt (talk) 05:50, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Hey. Sure, I'll try. Do you have the coordinates for that? Rehman 12:08, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
Great work with your recent photos - great value for money. The co-ordinates of GOH is 6.937421 N, 79.845157 E (2 York Street cnr Church Street). Dan arndt (talk) 04:37, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Dan arndt :) Dammit I forgot about this hotel... I have a few more places to cover (such as Achilleion). Will add it to that list, and update that list to UGLK as well. Cheers! Rehman 22:02, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Whilst you are out & about could you take some photos of St. Peter's Church, its right next door to GOH at 26 Church Street(Coordinates: 6°56′15″N 79°50′41″E). So good to have someone who is able to take photos of these sites. Unfortunately most of mine are of tourist sites which there appears to be good coverage on Commons. I'll have to make arrangements for another trip back to Sri Lanka. Dan arndt (talk) 04:37, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
Hello Dan. Hope you're doing well. My apologies, as I don't believe I have responded to your last message. Just want to keep you updated that I still have the three places marked to be visited; I haven't forgotten about it. :) Happy Sinhala/Tamil New Year to you! Cheers, Rehman 06:56, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

The WikiProject CouncilEdit

Hello 👋🏻 Rehman,

I saw that you are a former member of the WikiProject Council but that there currently aren’t any active members to approve new proposals, do you know where I should bring my proposal now?

Sent 📩 from my Microsoft Lumia 950 XL with Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile 📱. --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) ("The Chinese Coin Troll" 👿) (Articles 📚) 08:49, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi Donald Trung. My apologies for not being able to give a definitive answer at this moment, but you could start by discussing the same at the corresponding WikiProject in your local wiki. Once you have enough users willing to run it, you could be bold and create the project. I believe listing the project for approval at this moment would be a waste of time, as there is no one to review. Alternatively, you could also start a discussion at the VP as see how it goes. Cheers, Rehman 13:33, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

BSicons exÜWBl and exÜWBrEdit

Sorry, I should have explained in the SD notices. All of the current uses of both redirects are in template-generated rows of images in the Commons gallery, userspace and Wikipedia space, which CommonsDelinker can't replace (as only part of the titles are in the wikitext). Since I was going to move the current redirect targets to the titles currently occupied by the redirects, there would be no visual change. Could you delete the redirects? Thanks, Jc86035 (talk) 11:44, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi there. Thanks for your message. I will do the needful. Rehman 14:27, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Alphatest of FileImporter extensionEdit

Hi Rehman,

it was great to meet you on Friday! We discussed the FileImporter extension, and this is me sharing the link with you where we are looking for feedback :)

You can find all info on meta:WMDE_Technical_Wishes/Move_files_to_Commons#Testing_an_alpha_version_of_the_feature

Thank you for your feedback! Lea Voget (WMDE) (talk) 12:55, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi Lea. It was a pleasure meeting you too! Thank you for the link, I will go through it in detail once I get back home. :-) Best regards, Rehman 16:34, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Re:Edit

Sure, no problem! Thanks for taking pics, hope you had a good time like I did. Best, Elitre (talk) 09:17, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

HelloEdit

I got a note on my page and i am so ignorant of wike really but trying my best. I wanted the old photo taken off as i have recent better and more interesting ones but I know I am probably getting things wrong. A kind person in france pointed out a pic was blurry, she is prob right but they go back to 1952ǃ. You seem very excellent at your work would you give me some advice re the deleting of the pic or anything you can help me with as there is new interest since being on tv thank you so much kareenza ̴Kareenza (talk) 13:52, 12 May 2018

  Context It looks like the photo Kareenza is trying to delete is w:File:Terry Hogan in Athens 1956.jpg, but it does not exist in Commons. I assume this user is the person in France. -- SLV100 (talk) 02:56, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
Responding for records. Discussions continuing on Kareenza's talkpage. Best regards, Rehman 14:14, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Speedy tag on a restored fileEdit

Hi Rehman. You restored File:Terence_Hogan_and_Roz_Hogan_in_Cannes.jpg but left the speedy tag on it. I was going to convert it to a DR, but thought that might derail the current conversation you're having with the uploader. Storkk (talk) 09:24, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Hey Storkk. Thanks for the note. I forgot about those tags. Cheers, Rehman 09:37, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Your best shot 2018Edit

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

I'm wishing you all the best for the New Year and I hope you're going to have many memorable photo opportunities in 2019. With 2018 coming to an end, it's time to look back at the past 12 months. I'm curious – what would you consider your best shot of 2018 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 2018

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

Warmly, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 00:12, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Requesting help with cleanup of SVG translation campaignEdit

Hello Rehman, as you may be aware, we organised a campaign to translate SVG files into various Indian languages, last month. We are in process of Phase 1 cleanup, which is all of removing duplicates + completely wrong and misleading translations. All the files are listed at c:Commons:SVG Translation Campaign 2019 in India/Phase 1 Cleanup, by language organisers and active contributors to respective language Wikipedias. I request to you to help us with the cleanup by deleting the files which are listed sections have names such as "Delete", "For deletion" etc. Kindly let me know if you have any queries. Thanks in advance, KCVelaga (talk · mail) 14:57, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi KCVelaga. The above request is complete. Please let me know if I have missed any, or you'd like any restored. All the best for this project. Rehman 15:16, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the rapid action. There are two more left under Bengali and one under Marathi duplicates' sections. Also a template at the end. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 15:21, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
My pleasure, KCVelaga. The missed ones are also deleted. Have a nice evening. Rehman 15:26, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks again, KCVelaga (talk · mail) 15:31, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
One more is added to Marathi problematic list, and one to Telugu duplicates list. Please delete them as well. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 10:39, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
KCVelaga, done. Rehman 10:42, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

┌───────────────────┘
Please delete File:Laser-symbol-text.te.svg and File:Computational physics diagram.te.svg. They are duplicates of File:Laser-symbol-text-te.svg and File:Computational physics diagram-te.svg respectively. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 09:08, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

KCVelaga, apologies for the delay. This is done. Rehman 23:03, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
No problem at all, thanks a ton! KCVelaga (talk · mail) 05:44, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Sinhalese translationEdit

I hope that I’ve got the wording right. I’m a little rusty and it’s difficult using the templates. Dan arndt (talk) 12:42, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Just realised that my problem was that I was in mobile mode rather than desktop. Will keep working on those templates. Dan arndt (talk) 12:52, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks Dan! :) Rehman 13:15, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Photo walk in StockholmEdit

It's only a few weeks until Wikimania 2019 in Sweden. I'd like to invite you to the Commons Photographer's photo walk. If you're planning on going to Stockholm in August, please consider joining this event. This is an opportunity to connect with other photographers, have fun together, and explore the beauty of an iconic Scandinavian city… All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 03:55, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Hello Frank, thank you for the invite, though I won't be attending Wikimania this year. Best wishes for the photo walk! Cheers, Rehman 04:01, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks so much! Hope to meet you in person next time, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 04:02, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Help with mass messageEdit

Hi Rehman, I need your help for sending a mass message for users on Commons. It is basically to communicate a survey (feedback) form to the users listed at Commons:SVG_Translation_Campaign_2019_in_India/Results#Overall_uploads_table. I would like to know how should the list be structured, and I can prepare it accordingly. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 13:46, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Hello KCVelaga. Apologies for the late reply. For structuring the list, you may find more information here or use one of the Mass-mail subscription list shells. Cheers, Rehman 15:35, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
But is this going to work on Commons? Should I create a list here or on English Wikipedia? KCVelaga (talk · mail) 04:08, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
Yes, after creating, we should be able to copy the source code across to Commons. Rehman 00:31, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
The list is at en:Wikipedia:Mass message senders/Shell-STC2019IN, and the message is at Commons:SVG Translation Campaign 2019 in India/Feedback survey. I have sent the message to their English Wikipedia talk pages, I request you to send it to their Commons talk pages. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 04:14, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Hello KCVelaga. Your message has been sent. The shell was imported to User:KCVelaga/Wikipedia:Mass message senders/Shell-STC2019IN. It can be deleted at your request. Cheers. Rehman 05:45, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
Many thanks for the help. I have moved the page from my user subpage to Commons:SVG Translation Campaign 2019 in India/Mass message shell. I would like to keep this list as it may be useful for promoting future activities in this area. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 06:00, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
No worries. Have a great day! Rehman 06:47, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
