inappropriate/wrong deletion requestsEdit

Hi Waugh,

please could you be more careful if you are putting up a deletion request. I've skimmed through your DRs and found at least two wrong DRs:

Please wait at lease some weeks after a transfer has been made if you cannot categorize the image yourself. You are disturbing our image uploaders if you want to delete valid in scope pictures.

Please be more precise in your deletetion request comment, too. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 10:07, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Files that are in use in main space of other WMF project are automatically in scope of Commons, see COM:SCOPE#File in use in another Wikimedia project. Please don't nominate such files as out of scope. Also note that
“An otherwise non-educational file does not acquire educational purpose solely because it is in use on a user page (the "User:" namespace) of another project, but by custom the uploading of small numbers of images (e.g. of yourself) for use on a personal user page of another project is allowed.”
so don't nominate personal pictures that are in use on some user page. Trycatch (talk) 16:20, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
Also, please, don't nominate for speedy deletion "bad" files such this one -- some files you have nominated are completely OK, some thumbnails have been incorrectly created by this known bug (and numerous other similar MediaWiki bugs). Also note that notification of the uploader is obligatory. Trycatch (talk) 19:56, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
