Stamps of MoldovaEdit

Hello, Rimshot! You recently closed the discussion at Commons:Categories for discussion/2012/01/Category:Stamps of Moldova, but the problem which prompted me to open that discussion is still not solved: the category says that stamps are PD and points to a template that says that stamps are copyrighted. So, which is it? If it's PD, can you correct the template? Razvan Socol (talk) 09:25, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Category discussions are normally about questions like good names for categories etc. and not about copyright questions. Therefore I will usually just follow a deletion request's outcome when closing such a discussion. In this case, I followed the first link, not looking at the year. A more recent request had the same outcome, however. As the question is really about the copyright template being correct, the CFDs might not have been the best place to discuss this. I will open a discussion at Commons talk:Stamps/Public domain. If it turns out that the template is correct, a lot of images will have to be deleted. --rimshottalk 20:48, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
I've responded more fully at Commons talk:Stamps/Public domain#Moldovan Stamps. The copyright template is wrong, it was improperly edited by User:Zscout370 who was not involved in either of the discussions mentioned above and should be reverted. Ww2censor (talk) 22:34, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
I have not heard or seen a reaction to this or my Commons talk:Stamps/Public domain#Moldovan Stamps page posting. So I want to revert the Moldovan template edit as there that edit was never discussed or substantiated by Zscout370 but the template has been completely changed so I don't see how to revert his edit. Ww2censor (talk) 08:54, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
There hasn't been any, unfortunately. I have advertised at Commons:Village pump/Copyright in the hopes of attracting some more input. --rimshottalk 19:24, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
I noticed that there has been no input. I figured out how to revert the template. Ww2censor (talk) 20:58, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Commons:Categories for discussion/2012/03Edit

I'm just wondering what the status of the "New York City by period" discussion is. Hamblin (talk) 01:24, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

The status is that no-one ever participated in the discussion, apart from the nominator (me). If you have an opinion on deleting or keeping these categories, feel free to participate. I'd rather not delete categories after a discussion in which only I took part. --rimshottalk 19:13, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. I am interested in the trees pertaining to New York City -- particularly its history -- but I haven't studied the situation enough yet to have a firm opinion on the big picture. When I do I will participate. Hamblin (talk) 00:57, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

cfd vs seecatEdit

Re: Commons:Categories for discussion/2014/02/Category:Court houses in Hungary

Thanks, I didn't realize it was that easy. I thought I had to go through a cfd. Would it be appropriate to use {{speedy|Wrong name, see Category:correct name}} in this case? Thanks. Themightyquill (talk) 15:25, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

For obvious cases, mostly misspellings (tag for deletion) and duplicates (make a redirect) , there is usually no need to start a discussion. In this particular case, I opted for making it a redirect, as "court house" is a valid spelling. An example for an obvious deletion would be Commons:Categories for discussion/2013/09/Category:Flodder (fims). If you are unsure which one to use, you can tag the category for deletion and let an admin decide whether to delete it or make a redirect. If you are really unsure or see the need for discussion, you can of course start a CFD. This can also be the case for duplicates, where both names are valid, but it is unclear which one to prefer. --rimshottalk 18:37, 17 February 2014 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed you have set up User:MiszaBot to archive your talk page. Unfortunately, the bot has stopped working, and given how its operator is inactive, it is unclear when/if this will fixed. For the time being, I have volunteered to operate a MiszaBot clone (running the exact same code). With that said, your input would be appreciated at Commons:Bots/Requests/ArchiveBot 1. Regards, FASTILY 07:37, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

Administrator Barnstar Hires.png The Admin's Barnstar
In appreciation of your work at CFD. I can't remember seeing any other fellow admins there. I often wonder if other admins even know of its existence... INeverCry 23:23, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! There are other admins there, but not very active and not more than a handful anyhow ... --rimshottalk 06:26, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Category:Malaysia International Guitar Festival 2013Edit

Category:Malaysia Internasional Guitar Festival 2013 was moved Category:Malaysia International Guitar Festivall 2013 but the new category has "Festival" spelt incorrectly. Cheers. Alan Liefting (talk) 23:33, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Oops! Fixed. --rimshottalk 07:24, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
