Edit request (3)[edit]

There should be a warning to not delete the images before reviewed. ~~Ebe123~~ → report 12:32, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

I do not think that it is needed. There is a link to Wikipedia:Criteria_for_speedy_deletion#F8 and if an admin does not know what to do they can just click the link and read it there.
You can delete the file even if there is still a bot check template on Commons if the information looks ok and you just do not know if the categories are ok. But I agree that it would be best not to do it. --MGA73 (talk) 16:36, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Now Commons (MtC drive)[edit]

Please add {{#if:{{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}}|March 2012|{{Now Commons (MtC drive)}}|<the template>}} to replace the template by the one for March. ~~Ebe123~~ → report 00:06, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

What is the purpose/gain of that? --Leyo 19:52, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
It's for the drive, but Ebe123 has resigned from the drive. Sven Manguard Wha? 02:09, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
I got that. But why would we need to change the NC template for that? --Leyo 06:55, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
I think the template started because I suggested that we as a test moved some files to commons WITHOUT checking if they were ok as a part of the MtC. The idea was that users that did not have a bot or could/wanted to use the other tools could check those files. Ebe123 suggested that the template was used for all the files moved during that template probably because it had a very big warning NOT to delete the files on en-wiki before the bot check template has been removed on Commons (also see #Edit request (3) above) and perhaps also because it moved the MtC moved files into separate catgories. --MGA73 (talk) 07:32, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
OK, but why changing the standard template? IMO a specialized template should be created for this purpose. --Leyo 10:14, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes :-) A new template was created {{Now Commons (MtC drive)}}. But like you I do not know why we should change the standard template. --MGA73 (talk) 12:46, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
I think this request could be closed as a "Not done" now that both Ebe123 and I no longer want to spend time on this. --MGA73 (talk) 16:01, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Edit request 18 May 2013[edit]

There is a version in the sandbox that will update the link to the template, and subtract the extra space at the top of the code. --Funandtrvl (talk) 00:16, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Done! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 03:21, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Suggest to add link to move old versions[edit]

Hi. I suggest that we add this to the template:

If you want to move old versions to Commons and/or add original upload log click this link.

The link only works when the template is located on a file page :-) --MGA73 (talk) 21:15, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the tool User:Magog the Ogre :-) --MGA73 (talk) 21:21, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
