Transcluded in 18,000+ pages. George Ho (talk) 15:06, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

✓ Protected indef. Kind regards, — Tulsi 24x7 04:43, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

File:Flag of None.svg

can you Semi-protect this file so i can write descriptions. Alexphangia Talk 15:55, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

✓ Done. The file has never faced vandalism, so full protection is not needed. Taivo (talk) 08:24, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

File:Jimmie Åkesson 2022 (cropped).jpg

Please unprotect file:Jimmie Åkesson 2022 (cropped).jpg to make it possible to request deletion due to copyright violation. This is a cropped version of file:Jimmie Åkesson 2022.jpg that was deleted as a copyright violation. Sjö (talk) 08:06, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

✓ Done. This was problem of English Wikipedia: it was used somewhere there in important place. For unprotection, English Wikipedia must be edited and then waited some time – probably less than day. Instead, I deleted the file speedily as crop from copyvio. Taivo (talk) 08:35, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Again, I've already requested to the checkuser case here in Commons:Requests for checkuser/Case/Yuiyui2001. Maanshen (talk) 08:18, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Don't think it needed a checkuser, this isn't a "difficult case". --Lord Belbury (talk) 08:33, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
They've now started uploading possibly-hoax "own work" police badges with no source again, as all past socks have done. --Lord Belbury (talk) 09:15, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:NaiPanyakorn

Repeatedly uploading copyvios since 2017, with latest block in 2020 and latest upload on 30 August 2022. --Paul_012 (talk) 12:37, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Looks like the user only speaks Thai, and thinks that scanning makes it their own work. I see no attempt to explain things to them in their language. Guido den Broeder (talk) 11:43, 22 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • All the template messages are auto-translated and will display in the user's preferred language according to their settings. They should be sufficiently clear to anyone demonstrating a minimal level of competence. The user hasn't shown any indication of interest in communicating with the project, in any language, so I don't see what further attempted correspondence would achieve. --Paul_012 (talk) 12:22, 22 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      You can't know that until you have tried. The template messages contain no information that is helpful in this instance. Guido den Broeder (talk) 12:29, 23 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

File:Rectum anatomy en.svg

Constant IP vandalism. Nehme1499 (talk) 08:31, 22 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Phoenix14061990

User:Phoenix14061990 seems to upload only copyright protected or fair use pictures. He has a talk page full of removals. After his block on ENWP, I severely get the idea that he has no idea about copyright laws and thinks that copying a picture makes it "own work". To my opinion, Wikimedia must be protected against his efforts. The Banner (talk) 10:00, 23 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
