re "Give me a break"[edit]

I had something to say re your close at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/IncidentArchive912#Misuse of commas. You might want to consider taking a bit more time to explain yourself in future... Herostratus (talk) 01:56, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

  • It means that the whole discussion is ridiculous, there is no action to take, and quit wasting everyone's time. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 02:01, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Why is the whole conversation ridiculous? The complaint was of an IP who "reverts multiple editors who correct their mistakes... they are refusing to engage in the consensual process necessary to keep us operating...". It's now ridiculous to complain of such things? You didn't say "I looked into it and the complaint has no merit" or anything like that. You just dismissed the complaint as being not even worth considering, I guess (I have to guess, since you didn't explain yourself and still haven't).
Since you say you're pretty busy, rather than wasting anymore time on a back-and-forth about this, we can end this conversation here, at this: You're not an admin, nor are you a non-admin who is especially thoughtful, or able to explain themselves very well, it doesn't seem. So you should probably consider whether you should be closing threads at ANI. I would say not (there's nothing wrong with that, I'm sure you're good at many other things, and nobody is good at everything). And if you do want to close threads at ANI, you need to go through RfA, I guess. Herostratus (talk) 12:48, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

NFCR discussions[edit]

Hi Oiyarbepsy. I've noticed that you've been going through and cleaning up some of the WP:NFCR discussions that are still unresolved. Just for reference, you can use Template:Non-free reviewed or one of its variations when you close a discussion. Just change "non-free review" to "non-free reviewed" in the {{non-free review}} template, add and fill in the relevant |pages=, |user= and |date= parameters, and everything should be good to go. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:52, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

  • @Marchjuly:Thanks, I'll place them now. Or, not yet. Does this go on the description page or on the file talk page? Oiyarbepsy (talk) 06:08, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
I've only seen them used on the description page, sometimes at the top right below the image and sometimes under the copyright license. I really think you only need to add one when you close a discussion, but I guess you could add {{Non-free reviewed no consensus}} if you move something to FFD. Also, just for reference, anything which has a non-free use rationale that you remove from an article like you did at WSVN can simply be re-added to the article to stop it from being deleted per WP:F5. An admin would simply delete the image outright when they closed the discussion, but us non-admins cannot delete such files so they short of hang around in limbo until an admin either deletes them or somebody adds them to an article. Anyone who de-orphans a non-free image can remove the {{di-orphaned fair use}} template, so you might want to try {{di-disputed fair use rationale}} or FFD when you want to discuss NFCC#8 stuff. -- Marchjuly (talk) 06:30, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
