Dear Rodomonte, Could you please, when creating new categories for persons, add a defaultsort for every person? It goes like this {{DEFAULTSORT:Family name, Given name}}. This helps to arrange the names within categories in the right order. Vysotsky (talk) 14:29, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for the hint. --Rodomonte (talk) 14:31, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
Dear Rodomonte, I hope the word "done" means that you will be helping to add the defaultsort to all categories that you created (and are in need of a defaultsort). Vysotsky (talk) 16:12, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
Yes, of course. I just did that.--Rodomonte (talk) 16:13, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanx! Vysotsky (talk) 16:18, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Filemover!Edit


Hi Rodomonte, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{Rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please leave a redirect behind unless you have a valid reason not to do so. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references. Please see this section of the file rename guideline for more information.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.

File:La Juive Act 1 set 1835 - Restoration (cropped).jpgEdit

I hadn't quite finished the restoration, so I recropped from the finished. On my tablet, though so you may want to tweak. Or you may like the uncropped now that it's done. Your call. Adam Cuerden (talk) 18:08, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

@Adam Cuerden: Many thanks for your great work. As I mainly use these images for illustration within the synopsis section, I prefer the cropped version. Unfortunately it is currently not allowed in the german wikipedia to use CSS to crop the images with de:Vorlage:CSS-Bildausschnitt (the equivalent of en:Template:CSS_image_crop). I would have preferred that. --Rodomonte (talk) 08:58, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Notification about possible deletionEdit

Some contents have been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether they should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at their entry.

If you created these pages, please note that the fact that they have been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with them, such as a copyright issue.

Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

Important message for file moversEdit

A community discussion has been closed where the consensus was to grant all file movers the suppressredirect user right. This will allow file movers to not leave behind a redirect when moving files and instead automatically have the original file name deleted. Policy never requires you to suppress the redirect, suppression of redirects is entirely optional.

Possible acceptable uses of this ability:

  • To move recently uploaded files with an obvious error in the file name where that error would not be a reasonable redirect. For example: moving "Sheep in a tree.jpg" to "Squirrel in a tree.jpg" when the image does in fact depict a squirrel.
  • To perform file name swaps.
  • When the original file name contains vandalism. (File renaming criterion #5)

Please note, this ability should be used only in certain circumstances and only if you are absolutely sure that it is not going to break the display of the file on any project. Redirects should never be suppressed if the file is in use on any project. When in doubt, leave a redirect. If you forget to suppress the redirect in case of file name vandalism or you are not fully certain if the original file name is actually vandalism, leave a redirect and tag the redirect for speedy deletion per G2.

The malicious or reckless breaking of file links via the suppressredirect user right is considered an abuse of the file mover right and is grounds for immediate revocation of that right. This message serves as both a notice that you have this right and as an official warning. Questions regarding this right should be directed to administrators. --Majora (talk) 21:36, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
