Uncategorized images

There are currently 1.55m uncategorized images on Commons. If uploaders can't be bothered categorizing their photos then are those photos worth having? I propose that all uncategorized images should be deleted and the upload page revised so that uncategorized images cannot be uploaded. Mztourist (talk) 06:47, 31 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Mztourist: The proper place for such a proposal is COM:VPP.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 09:28, 31 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Noted thanks, I have raised the discussion there. Mztourist (talk) 09:35, 31 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I have just started to use the cropping tool. In some cases I would like to use BOTH images, the cropped and the uncropped. I looked to see if I can rename a cropped image, which would solve this problem, but I didnt find that option. Thanks in advance. --Smokefoot (talk) 14:56, 23 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Smokefoot: When using the cropping tool, you can choose between "Overwrite" and "Upload as new file". If you choose "Upload as new file", you can enter a new filename for the cropped image and it will be saved separately from the original. —Granger (talk  · contribs) 21:28, 23 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Commons:Meet our restorationists

I don't want to poke too hard about this, but given the main page links Meet our photographers and Meet our illustrators, and given that it's been 13 years of leaving restorationists off the main page - during which I've created a few hundred examples - think we could maybe consider including it?

It's not very up to date, and there's probably a bunch more people that should be in the list, but I don't think that's any different to Commons:Meet our photographers. Did have more once, but this nasty little discussion caused people to pull out.

I'm not sure how many FPs I have on Commons. I know I'm approaching my 600th on en-wiki, though, so probably more than 1% of them on here, given there's about 16,000. (edit: Looks like about 360, so 2%.) Adam Cuerden (talk) 03:29, 24 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
