User talk:Rodhullandemu


Hi, what´s the problem with the category? It´s part of a Wikimedia Spain project: No Spanish municipality without a photograph, and it´s useful for us to know how many images are uploaded each year. --Rodelar (talk) 20:21, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

@Rodelar: Oh, OK. if it's a project's category- and I see it's hidden- that's fine. Rodhullandemu (talk) 20:29, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

hmm, I raised it because I am use to Fetx2002 taking copyrighted images and putting them on commons via flickr the guy has been doing it for years. Guess I was mistaken on it's sourcing. I tried to report Fetx2002 a number of times as he has uploaded tons of photos that breach copyright. So ye, please keep your eye on him thanks. Govvy (talk) 12:53, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

Mellow admin

Hello. I saw the "being mellow" thingy in your page. Love it! "Don't bring disputes from other wikis. This is not an extension of those wikis. Assume a fresh start, assume good faith, see what your colleagues want. Heck, maybe a friendship you make here will help resolve a dispute there?.. So, in order to preserve the neatness and peacefulness that is Commons, you need to be extra mellow. Don't assume that everyone understands where you are coming from. This may not be your home wiki, and not everyone does things the same way. Compromise, reasonableness, and explanation are needed..."

I looked into your page because I was looking for a good admin who cares for those issues I quoted above. I also wanted to find a "tolerant" person because I have never had the intention of being harsh on others. It goes against my character. Looking for the said admin I also passed from Christian Ferrer's page. He is also an ideal candidate for what I was looking for. (BTW the great majority of admins I happened to meet in Commons are wonderful people, only a couple need to develop themselves, especially their capacity of empathy, but that is not the question here. We all have to develop our capacity of empathy.) Am I taking too much of your time? Before getting to the grains let me explain why I also mentioned Christian here: Yesterday some angry IP added a talk on their page threatening to "cut him with a seesaw" or something like that. I noticed that he was there, making edits, but did not bother to remove the vandalism. I appreciate these things. It's like "You can do whatever s**t you wish, I will not come down to your level." (Someone else later removed the threat.) I wish I could be like him and take things so cool. I try to, but my patience has its limits.

All this loooooong chat is to complain from some user's attitude. I came to a mellow admin because I don't want anyone to be blocked, even for half an hour. (I have been blocked in several WPs, I know how it hurts. Sometimes you feel you have had an unjust treatment and get angry and at times you keep that feeling for a long time. At others, when you cool down, after the first reaction, you may feel like "I shouldn't have done this or that" and accept the situation with more calm. In any case, it leaves a bitter taste.) I only hope someone to tell a couple of words to people who are rude and unjust about their colleagues here. Maybe they forget we are all volunteers here and even if no one says "thanks" for anything we contributed, they should show the minimum respect to people who spend their time here for a good cause.

Whatever, I simply want to say this: Some users insult me without any acceptable reason, freely (gratis), I don't know for which reason. If they had done that only once I would shut up, but while I shut up they take it I don't know what, maybe as a sign of weakness, and I cannot accept that. (Look at my uploads, many food items, I am not weak at all! :-) From now on if insults continue I will continue with complaints. I hope I won't have to.

Please have a look at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Hassan the bookseller (7550602404).jpg. I waited more than 40 hours for someone, an admin an editor, an IP, anyone, to tell the concerned user not to act like that. At least to ask them why? Why? I was wandering around uncategorized files, alphabetically, I saw several files with the name "Hassan" which seemed out of scope personal images to me and made DRs. (Look at the DRs closed today, many have been opened by me.) This one -uploaded by the concerned uder- also looked like a UPF and OoS to me and I presented it to DR. Still, I wrote "Could be categorized within Category:Bookshops, but I've got the impression that Hassan is the focus of the image..." with which I implied others could find the image in scope. I encouraged people to object to the proposed deletion but never to insult a colleague. Why do some people need to insult others? Why don't they limit themselves to talk about the files? The DRs are for discussing if a file should be deleted or not. We have the DRs for this. If not, everybody could simply delete what they considered correct to delete. If you do not agree with me you say your opinion about the file. What do you think you will lose by being kind and polite? I am really ashamed to make this application here. We are all grown up and educated people. We should act like that. Please.

Sorry for taking this much of your time and space. Take care. --E4024 (talk) 08:34, 9 November 2017 (UTC)


Rodhullandemu, this morning I was going to write to you about a DR that you closed the day before yesterday but I got confused and wrote it to fellow admin Guanaco instead! The title of my talk that you can see in their page is "Pencilll". Sorry for this confusion and thanks. --E4024 (talk) 11:38, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
