Sysop[edit source]

Hello MacFan, can you grant me the sysop toolkit? Thanks Chimobi (talk) 11:50, 24 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi this isn’t the appropriate to request rights. Please request them at Miraheze Commons:Requests for permissions. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 13:15, 24 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In addition to what MacFan4000 said, I feel Miraheze Commons has sufficient administrators for the level of activity required. I am also concerned by some of your good-faith edits, notably creations of some unnecessary redirects and templates. Dmehus (talk) 03:13, 25 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Criteria for file/page deletion in Commons clean up[edit source]

Hi MacFan4000, I was just wondering how strict you are with your criteria for deleting files and pages here on Commons. I just have a few questions so I am clearer on the subject. I have looked at a few file pages and pages in the main namespace that, to me, have missing information and seem pretty pointless respectively. I was going to do some cleaning up and noticed you have been doing so already.

Many of the pages literally have one image in a gallery with none-to-little text. This is not a gallery and the page itself hold no useful or educational purpose. Would you consider this a pointless page? It offers no use whatsoever and the image itself is best served being in an appropriate category. Is this a page you would consider deleting? How many images in a gallery would you consider before not deleting it?

Regarding file pages that are missing any of the following: Description, author, source and license; how do you deal with those? I wanted to add a notification to the image or uploader's talk page but I don't know how successful this has been in the past. I don't want to ruthlessly delete files/images just because it doesn't have one of the aforementioned, but at the same time the basic level of information should contain them all. A full description and correct author, source and license.

How you deal with these would be helpful, thanks. Borderman (talk) 10:07, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah, I’ve been deleting single image galleries when I come across them. As for images, I delete if they’ve had no license provided for over a week, as per the {{No license}} template. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 14:01, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MacFan4000 Ok, cheers. I have seen quite a few single image galleries in the main namespace created by Penarc1, who is adamant they are useful to their projects. Quoting below "incipient galleries" on Commons does not help Commons, especially if they remain incipient for months or longer. They hold no real value to Commons.
Out of curiosity, do you still delete images even if they appear globally in other wikis? Borderman (talk) 14:21, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, though most of the ones I have deleted are used only on famepedia. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 14:23, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Good to know. I haven't seen famepedia. When I look myself I'll double-check everything before progressing with deletes. Commons is a bit of a mess at the moment and needs a bit of organisation and tlc. Borderman (talk) 14:50, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

galleries[edit source]

Dear Administrator I have noticed that the criteria for accepting pages (topics) are going to be tightened. I have commented to BorderMAN that incipient galleries allowed me to keep track of images that are used in several related wikis (e.g. gyaanipedia and worldpedia) Thanks for your comments.
