Requested move: government preload template[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: no consensus. Also, as stated below, there is a possibility that changing the title could affect preloads, so preparations should take place if this move is to occur in the future. (non-admin closure) Steel1943 (talk) 22:52, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

I see that Wikipedia:Files for upload/Wizard/License is an Article Wizard file which would need to be adjusted to use the new name. What I'm unsure of is whether there are any other files that would also need to be adjusted. I also don't see the necessity of changing anything per "don't fix what's not broken". I don't see any other government preloads that need to be disambiguated, and this is an internal preload file that users don't see the name of. Seems too much risk of breaking something for dubious benefit. Wbm1058 (talk) 22:30, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.


I want to know the reason why you have to have an account to upload, I just want to know, is this a MediaWiki restriction, or something? (talk) 22:04, 20 April 2015 (UTC)Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page).

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: This is the talk page for discussing the Wikipedia:Files for upload page itself, not to submit files for review. Please see Wikipedia:Files for upload/Wizard for how to request an upload. Mz7 (talk) 05:31, 6 January 2016 (UTC)


The archiving settings were lost at some point. In Special:Diff/678146147, User:My name is not dave added new archiving settings which had the effect that lots of requests are being archived before anyone has taken a look at the discussions. I'll try to restore all incorrectly archived discussions to this page. --Stefan2 (talk) 14:17, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Getting cluttered, Stefan2. Any way to fix the archiving? – Finnusertop (talkcontribs) 10:14, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
I can't figure out why the archiving doesn't work, so I suggest that we ask for help somewhere. The idea is that the bot only should archive sections which contain {{User:ClueBot III/ArchiveNow}} while other sections should remain unarchived, so the age parameter should be set to a high value to prevent accidental archiving of unclosed sections, but for some reason nothing is archived at all. --Stefan2 (talk) 10:49, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

I have requested that make me a registered user.

Not done: this is not the right page to request additional user rights. You may reopen this request with the specific changes to be made and someone will add them for you, or if you have an account, you can wait until you are autoconfirmed and edit the page yourself.

"Recent" gallery[edit]

Can we get rid of it? It doesn't add much and doesn't seem to get updated regularly. Brianga (talk) 02:29, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

I have no objections to this. --Majora (talk) 03:06, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
No opinion from me either. --AntiCompositeNumber (Leave a message) 03:09, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
It would be nice if it were automatic. I'll remove it, subject to some shift in consensus here. Brianga (talk) 03:20, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
The issue is that most of the images that are listed here are either denied or are non-free, and can't be added. --AntiCompositeNumber (Leave a message) 14:28, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

How should I upload a file?[edit]

Hi all. I wish to upload a file of a film poster. The owner of the film gave his premission. How should I do this? Should he do it himself? Thanks, Doug Zahav (talk) 14:28, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
