Requesting change in a line[edit]

There is a line in the template to which I would like to propose a change. The line is - "If the file has already been moved to Commons, then consider nominating the file for deletion or changing the template to "{{Already moved to Commons}}. I think, instead of the template {{Already moved to Commons}} the template {{Now Commons}} should be used. When you go to the two templates it is clearly said that {{Now Commons}} should be used first and if it was declined by an administrator, the administrator should then replace it with {{Already moved to Commons}}. But in the template, only {{Already moved to Commons}} is given. I hope this change will be made without any problem. Thanks. Regards. - Jayadevp13 12:05, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

YesY Done. I've made the change as I don't see any problems with that reasoning. If anyone has a problem with this, feel free to reactivate {{edit protected}}. Harryboyles 16:49, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
@Harryboyles:Thank you for your understanding. Regards. - Jayadevp13 07:11, 23 June 2013 (UTC)


The phrase "it doesn't fit Common's scope" (second line from bottom) should read "it doesn't fit Commons' scope", with the apostrophe after the s in Commons.  — TORTOISEWRATH 20:59, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Copy to Commons Bots[edit]

Prior to two edits by User:MPelletier (WMF) (see first edit), the template linked to Magnus' Commons helper bot (a fully functioning bot) but now links to wmfLabs CommonsHelper bot, Which has not edited since March 2012. Can we please change the bot link back to a working one to allow for easier movement of images to Commons? I commented on MPelletier's MediaWiki talk page (which he says is more watched) on November 2, 2013, but have not heard a response. Thanks, -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 19:38, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Not done for now: Considering that the toolserver is going away soon (most recent mention is "mid 2014"), it would probably be a better idea to contact the maintainer of the new tool to find out why it's not working. Anomie 19:49, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
@Anomie: Then, can I request we remove that all together? If toolserver is "eventually, but soon" going away, and the current bot is not functioning properly and could take some time (especially since we're all volunteers here), wouldn't it make more sense that if we are to wait, we should wait with nothing, as opposed to a broken link? -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 20:09, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
In the meantime, I asked the current operator: User talk:methecooldude/Archive29#Commons:User:Upload Bot (Rich Smith). -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 20:14, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
@Anomie: How about pointing it at CommonsHelper which isn't on toolserver and actually works? Mackensen (talk) 18:32, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
Seconded. Anything that works would be better than nothing. -- TLSuda (talk) 19:20, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Mackensen (talk) 20:57, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
I guess I had the ability to do it myself, but as I was the one who originally asked that it be changed (prior to getting the mop) I didn't feel comfortable doing it. Thanks! -- TLSuda (talk) 21:36, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
Fine by me, tool labs isn't going away (I see it's already done, too). Anomie 11:42, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
