Steinsplitter added a comment to T158595: Some pages not moved after user rename.

Then it might be that you triggered a rate limit or an abusefilter which didn't let you move the pages. Please check the abuselog on that wiki (which is?). Thanks.

Steinsplitter added a comment to T111789: Disallow renaming own accounts with Special:GlobalRenameQueue.

You shouldn't be really allowed to rename yourself. During the rename process your account is "locked" and being migrated, and since the account performing the rename does not exist because it is being renamed that's the reason why Global rename script does the rename on your behalf. I suggest to decline and instead disallow self-renaming entirely to avoid issues with broken accounts.

@Steinsplitter Is it necessary for that error message to be wrapped in {{Abusefilter-warning|...}}? Even if I were to implement support for complete wikitext (so basically, parse the message server-side), the current error message (https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Abusefilter-warning-copyv2&oldid=205087996) would look silly when inserted into the interface (a quick mockup:

).

The blue box schould be below the Rename global user. Currently it is directly in the <input> field.

Users are unable to login for about two weeks now (for example Ratte, which is a active user). I hope this can be fixed contemporary.

@matmarex https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:AbuseFilter/153 has no matches, likely the upload param has unknown bugs

Steinsplitter added a comment to T138158: What license is Wikimedia Commons text licensed under?.

My interpretation (speaking from WMF Legal here) is that given the way the change was done (namely that the terms of use and the edit window still say 3.0) all the content is still 3.0 and the footer change has had no effect. We should therefore change the footer back to 3.0 to avoid misleading people. It's possible I'm unaware of something that Riley's message will explain though, so I'll watch this thread for when we get that info and update this if needed.

The "wiki process" as the final decision-making mechanism for all content, thus you have to seek consensus for such controversial changes. (Founding principles)

Steinsplitter added a comment to T123517: Create a bot to automatically check Commons uploads for possible copyright violations.

@Aklapper Sorry about that, yeah, this is on the back burner because we have no good leads on partnerships with services that could provide image checking for us. Google has said in no uncertain terms that they don't have an open API for this, and I think partnerships are being negotiated with some other system, but are not finalized. In any case, it's blocked internally and low priority for us currently.
