Please open the discussionEdit

Hello. Your closure of Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard/User_problems#Magog_the_Ogre does not address the issues raised there. You should at least wait until the thread becomes stale or stable. This closure is at best controversial. Please re-open the discussion. Thanks 4nn1l2 (talk) 21:21, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

No. These issues can not be addressed in this way. The discussion just creates more drama and does not have a chance to go anywhere.--Ymblanter (talk) 21:23, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
This hurts the ability of the commuity to discuss the issues in calmness. If multiple users disagree with your early closure, there is something wrong with it. I am still waiting for Magog the Ogre to become online and respond to my questions rasied at their talk page. Then I will contribute to the discussion in a meaningful manner. You even didn't give me a chance to express my opinion. Please reconsider your position. 4nn1l2 (talk) 21:33, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
I am sorry but this is not going to happen. We had enough drama yesterday and today, and we do not need more drama right now.--Ymblanter (talk) 21:35, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
According to Commons:Administrators/De-adminship, the decision should be left to a 'crat. Please do not escalate the situation. Your controversial action is against your intention (i.e., "stay calm - relax"). 4nn1l2 (talk) 21:39, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
If a crat decides to undo my closure I would be perfectly fine with the situation.--Ymblanter (talk) 21:45, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Never say I'm not one to argue against myself on procedure. Policy says only that crats may close the deadminship discussion if there was no prior consensus, not that crats must close the prior consensus discussion. The last two at least from memory (I opened them) were closed by an admin. GMGtalk 21:49, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Apart from the closer, the mere possibility of discussion should be given to the community. See Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems/Archive 71#User:Jcb or Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/Archive 69#What appears to be an inappropriate indef block of User:Rowan Forest for example. What you have done, Ymblanter, is shutting down the possibility of discussion. 4nn1l2 (talk) 22:26, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
No, it was not shutting down the possibility of discussion. It was cutting drama off.--Ymblanter (talk) 22:31, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Good intentions with bad results! 4nn1l2 (talk) 22:35, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
We obviously have different opinions on the matter.--Ymblanter (talk) 22:39, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Now behold the result of your action[1]. Haste makes waste! 4nn1l2 (talk) 22:49, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
I have heard your opinion. I am not really surprised at you repeating it all over again and not knowing how to stop. But I still disagree.--Ymblanter (talk) 22:53, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

I also support to re-open the thread. Remature closures (not necessary this edit) have already resulted in resignation of two admins. --Schlurcher (talk) 09:31, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

  Done. Sorry, at my age I can not afford this. I used to respect some people who posted here. I do not respect you anymore. Go an block each other. Commons will be better without you.--Ymblanter (talk) 09:36, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
  • And let us now call things by their proper names. A bunch of users were disappointed that they were not allowed to create more drama, and instead of looking at their own behavior they continued to harass me to the point when I started to worry about my health condition and then I had to give up. I am seriously disappointed that the community has not stopped that. These users must have been shown the door. I am not willing to serve this community any more. I have reduced my administrator activity to a minimum and I am not going to participate in any community discussions with possible exceptions of sysop and desysop requests.--Ymblanter (talk) 18:05, 28 March 2020 (UTC)


Hi Ymblanter

you recently deleted per request

Obviously the request was not vetoed. However, the same person also requested deletion of

which was challenged. The files were kept due to 'no valid reason for deletion' by @~riley. The reason for the deletion request was imho not valid as this is an official govt decument issued by a govt official and thus the underwriter cannot claim any copyright. Could you please have a second look at your decision and undelete the files? Thanks a lot and happy holidays. --Wo st 01 (talk / cont) 18:59, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

I am sorry but this was a deletion request, filed by someone I know. I would suggest that you file an undeletion request in this case. The case would benefit from having more eyes on it.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:05, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

Пассаж ЛаптеваEdit

File:Laptev Trade Store Building.jpg — очень плохо показывает Пассаж Лаптева, изображение маленькое тёмное, фасад видно плохо, а левая половина изображения — это соседний дом № 57. А причём здесь правильное направление? Главное, чтобы дом можно было хорошо рассмотреть!ИринаЯ (talk) 18:14, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Просто та фотография, которую Вы вставили, повёрнута градусов на 20. Такую невозможно держать в списках.--Ymblanter (talk) 18:16, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
  • Я согласна, что наклон неудачный, но здание можно рассмотреть во всех деталях, а это важно! На Вашем снимке Пассаж Лаптева занимает не больше одной восьмой части кадра и детали очень плохо видны! Неужели Вы считаете это хороший снимок? Я считаю, что на снимке объекта культурного наследия дом должен занимать наибольшую часть кадра и должны быть чётко видны детали — тогда это хороший кадр!ИринаЯ (talk) 18:44, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
    Да, но снимок, повёрнутый на 30 градусов, вообще нельзя никому показывать. Надо просто дождаться нормальной фотографии, на которой будут видны детали лучше, и Вам её сделать несколько проще, чем мне.--Ymblanter (talk) 18:45, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
  • Я уже сделала фото: File:Пассаж на ул Радищева 30.jpg (он есть в списке культурного наследия). Специально пришла в 3 часа дня, когда солнце освещает стену Пассажа вдоль улицы Радищева, а стена вдоль улицы Московская смотрит на север и не освещается солнцем никогда! Скажете, что этот кадр показывает Пассаж хуже Вашего снимка?ИринаЯ (talk) 19:01, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
    Этот можно поставить.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:05, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
    Хотя пост-обработка ему бы не помешала--Ymblanter (talk) 19:07, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
  • Компьютерной обработкой не владею. Я — фотограф-любитель, выбираю точку съёмки и время освещения, делаю несколько кадров и выбираю лучший.ИринаЯ (talk) 19:17, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
  • Хочу заменить Ваш File:Michurina 77 Saratov.jpg — Жилой дом ул. Мичурина 77. Дом полностью закрыт деревьями. Я понимаю, что Вы снимали летом, поэтому я снимала зимой, когда деревья голые, и когда дом освещён солнцем. Посмотрите, что получилось.ИринаЯ (talk) 19:38, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
    Вот этот, по-моему, лучше всего из категории.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:41, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
  • Согласна, дом хорошо освещён солнцем.ИринаЯ (talk) 19:53, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
  • И последнее: File:Moskovskaya 102 Saratov.jpg. Дерево закрывает половину дома № 102, а слева — дом № 104. Поэтому я снимала зимой в разное время и при разном освещении. Посмотрите, какой лучше.ИринаЯ (talk) 20:11, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
    Думаю, вот эта.--Ymblanter (talk) 20:16, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Номинации на удалениеEdit

Добрый день. Не могли бы вы помочь разобраться с претензиями к файлам, как их устранить, что для этого исправить?

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Drozdovsky.jpg и Commons:Deletion requests/File:Крым10-1920.jpg. Заранее благодарю. --MPowerDrive (talk) 23:37, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

Добрый день. Боюсь. если нет даты реальной публикации, ничего сделать нельзя.--Ymblanter (talk) 05:26, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

Needed Help in deleting a fileEdit

Can you please help in deleing the file File:Mahadevbhaini Dairy - Part 3.pdfwhile uploading revised version through chnk upload, a junk is created, there after not able to upload revised version due to large size, there is alway "temporary server problem", hence request to delete this file so that i can upload it a fresh. Or you can revert the last edit of chunk upload. --Sushant savla (talk) 07:19, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

  Done--Ymblanter (talk) 17:32, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

File:Eye of Providence (icon, 19th c.).jpgEdit

You just closed the DR for this file without addressing the coyright issue: missing US PD tag. There’s nothing on there that indicates that the file will be automatically deleted if the tag is not added. What’s the proper procedure for dealing with this? Brianjd (talk) 06:43, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Why do not you add it yourself if you are so sure the tag is needed? Or perhaps you have doubts that a 19th century painting is out of copyright in the US?--Ymblanter (talk) 06:51, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
Do you think the tag is not needed? Given that you are an administrator, your opinion carries a lot of weight here. The current copyright notice does say:
You must also include a United States public domain tag to indicate why this work is in the public domain in the United States.
I interpret the word “must” as meaning that failure to add such a tag makes the file eligible for deletion. I don’t remember seeing anything that contradicts this. Normal procedure seems to be to delete files that are missing the necessary copyright notices.
As for adding the tag myself, I am not sure that it is really a 19th century painting and this is not my area of expertise. The source indicated is in Russian, which I cannot read. I assume there are many other users who would feel more confident to check this. In any case, isn’t the burden on the uploader to add the necessary copyright notices? Brianjd (talk) 07:11, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
The source says "around 1800". I am pretty sure it is not a standard practice to add to every file a RD-US tag. In fact, I have never seen a tag added to old artwork, this being just a random example, but I have seen literally thousands of files without a tag. This is just because {{PD-Art-100}} (which is in the file) should cover PD-US in all cases if applied correctly, I can not think of any exceptions (in contrast to {{PD-Art-70}}). PD-US is added when there are issues related to recent expiration of copyright, such as early copyright expiration in the US due to failure to extend the copyright, or, for example, to make sure that despite URAA provisions the file is free in the US. You are welcome of course to discuss this at the Copyright village pump, but this is my current understanding,--Ymblanter (talk) 07:19, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
Actually, the file contained {{PD-Art}} and even {{PD-Art-100}} says a US PD tag is required. I’m confused. But another user has since fixed this file, so I’ll take it up at the village pump. Brianjd (talk) 07:39, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

File:Bielefeld Neustädter Marienkirche from behind.jpgEdit

Ulamm's 3. Versuch

Guten Tag,

durch deine sogenannte Entzerrung sind die Proportionen der Türme stark verzerrt. Sie wirken kurz und dick, und die Neigung der Giebelschrägen der Turmgiebel ist viel zu gering dargestellt.

Da der Bildausschnitt nahe an den Gebäudekanten endet, ist es nicht möglich, das hochgeladene Bild zu renaturieren.

Bist zu so nett und stellst unter anderem Dateinamen zussätzlich das Originalfoto zur Verfüngung?

Beste Grüße, --Ulamm (talk) 09:00, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

@Ulamm: Guten Tag. Ich habe ihm hier hochgeladen: File:Neustädter Marienkirche Bielefeld raw image.jpg. Vielen Dank im Voraus. Gruessen.--Ymblanter (talk) 10:25, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
Ganz vielen Dank!
Ich habe mich an Kompromiss-Bearbeitungen versucht und halte meinen drtten Versuch für brauchbar.
Beste Grüße des gebürtigen Bielefelders --Ulamm (talk) 20:50, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
Vielen Dank. Es war schon ein schwieriges Bild zum Bearbeiten, und du hast es besser geschafft.--Ymblanter (talk) 21:15, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Reinhard Heydrich colourised wiki.pngEdit

You closed this discussion as delete but the file seems to still exist? File:Reinhard Heydrich colourised wiki.png Buidhe (talk) 02:23, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

It was restored by Ruthven two weeks later with the comment "Restoring with a correct license"--Ymblanter (talk) 05:22, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Needed Help in deleting a fileEdit

I need help in removing the latest version of the file File:Prabhu Padharya.pdf which was uploaded by me. There seems some mismatches in page numbers. Kindly remove the latest version only. First version can be left as it is, Regards. --Sushant savla (talk) 14:05, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

  Done--Ymblanter (talk) 15:21, 10 June 2020 (UTC)


Hello. Could you investigate file:Hasan Khan Shahsavan.jpg, file:Muhammedsalah Khan.jpg, file:Safi Khan.jpg and other uploads from the series? I don't believe they are public domain (or hold any illustrative value whatsoever). Ghirlandajo (talk) 14:12, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

No, they are pretty clearly modern depictions, not the 18th century. The easiest is probably to take them for slow deletion.--Ymblanter (talk) 14:17, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

Nu är det dags för Wiki Loves Monuments 2020!Edit

Vinnarbilden i Wiki Loves Earth!


(For information in English, see Wiki Loves Monuments 2020 in Sweden or other participating countries.)

Du får det här meddelandet då du tidigare har deltagit i de svenska deltävlingarna av Wiki Loves Monuments eller Wiki Loves Earth!

Category:Moscowskaya Street, SaratovEdit

Здравствуйте, Ярослав! Получается так, что я делаю параллельно с Вами шаги в распутывании ситуации с домом Акимова в Саратове. Вопрос остался в переименовании двух файлов: File:Дом Акимова В.А..JPG и File:Дом Акимова.JPG, поскольку это части дома № 7. Но сейчас я хочу спросить о другом. Глядя на категорию Category:Moscowskaya Street, Saratov, возникает желание переименовать входящие подкатегории: Category:7 Moskovskaya Street, Saratov в Category:Moskovskaya Street 7, Saratov и Category:House 41 Moskovskaya Street, Saratov‎ в Category:Moskovskaya Street 41, Saratov. Понимаю, что это не обязательно, но так они были бы упорядочены логично в списке категорий всей улицы. Я не обладаю необходимыми инструментами (и опытом) для такой работы на Викискладе, поэтому обращаюсь с пожеланием к Вам. Гдеёж? (talk) 19:13, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Я не вижу большой необходимости (стандартизацию названий категорий тут не удаётся провести практически никогда), но, если хотите, могу переименовать.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:19, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Ваши откаты

Почему Вы откатываете мои правки тут? 09:57, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

Потому что они нк улучшают абсолютно ничего и только отнимают время у других участников. Если Вы продолжите, я Вас ещё и заблокирую.}}--Ymblanter (talk) 10:02, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
Как это не улучшают‽ А зачем нужен тогда {{Lang}}‽ А ещё на основе языка (точнее письменности, которая определяется на основе языка) выбирается кегль шрифта! 10:19, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
Ну, может быть, Вы потратите свою энергию на то, чтобы изучить (а) зачем на самом деле нужен {{Lang}} (b) можно ли редактировать сообщения других участников.--Ymblanter (talk) 10:23, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

Файл визовая политика РоссииEdit

Добрый вечер. Я отменил ваше редактирование. Файл был переделан, была добавлена электронная виза. Легенда ещё не прошла модерацию, все встанет на свои места, когда это произойдёт. Ошибки там нет. Спасибо. --NoDilemma (talk) 20:08, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

File:Усадьба Шикина флигель.jpgEdit

Посмотри, пожалуйста, этот файл. Кажется, автор номинировал его для удаления по ошибке, тогда как надо было просто поменять описание. Подробнее здесь. Можешь снять его с удаления, тем более, что он уже используется в наших списках? --Ludvig14 (talk) 18:50, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Я пока снял с удаления, посмотрим, что будет дальше--Ymblanter (talk) 18:55, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
Спасибо! Это не опасно? -- Ludvig14 (talk) 18:57, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
Автор сам очистил страницу номинации, я это интерпретировал как то, что удаление больше не требуется.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:00, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
