Description Yug 2006-11-19 21:14:49 UTC
It should be great to have a more convenient way to move image from a wikipedia
to commons.
I think it's a really big work and about License, so I just talk about this
without hope to get this improvement soon :]
I just want to say : "one day that will be need, there can be some ideas".

=================== Proposition 1 =========================
In , the field "source file",
may be able to say:
* fr
* Image:Whale_3.png
* complete the other fields.
then the french media file Image:Whale_3.png will be move to commons, and delete
on wiki fr.

=================== Proposition 2 =========================

Many Media files are clearly free of use, but on only one wikipedia such The problem is that the move to commons is nowadays too long.
It should be great if administrator can have a button such "move to commons"
when we are in front of Media Files.
# The trusted admin "Marcel" find a media file '''free of use''' on his little
# he clic on the button "move to commons",
# the media file is move to commons, with the good history, showing as uploader
on commons the former french wikipedia (not the trusted admin, which doesn't
appear in the history of the file.) 

On the french page, the history of upload is :
* 19:30, 5 November 2006 [[user:Micheletb]] (Talk)

After the move, on the commons page, the history can be :
* [Time], [Day MONTH YEAR] - [[:FR:user:Marcel]] (Talk) - uploaded from fr. 
* 19:30, 5 November 2006 [[:FR:user:Micheletb]] (Talk) - image d'un Elephant

License issue :
# Copying the text from fr to commons. Template are often the same.
# choice in the list of license (same that in
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-11-19 21:55:07 UTC
It might be easier to think of it as a pull operation, performed on the Commons
side of things; this would likely involve a faux transaction of sorts, in which
the history of the media file is exported from the source wiki in XML format,
imported into the new location, and the files copied; similar to existing
transwiki operations using Special:Import. Deleting the source file could be
left as a final step for the administrators (and wouldn't require massive
changes to the existing pages, assuming we required that the names be kept
