Forums: Index War Room Deleting images for custodians
Forum logo

So as a late aide to the image project of 2012, I believe that it would be useful if custodians have the ability to delete files.

The reason why this could be a good idea is because at the moment they are trusted to maintenance files in every other possible way, i.e. renaming and suppressing their redirects. To allow them to delete images would be of little harm and of a huge benefit to the cleanup project, because of the large amount of unused/poor quality and otherwise deletable images that still remain lingering on the wiki.

However if we were to do this and give them the ability to delete images (of course, regulated by the Abuse filter), we would need to restructure the group as this is a large responsibility, so custodians who are inactive would need to re-submit a request. Custodians who are active can simply leave their name in a list below this and they may keep their custodian rights because they would clearly be informed of this change, as they would have obviously read the forum.

Thanks for reading!

Add your name here if you are an active custodian

Support Yes, please! Custodians being able to delete images would greatly improve on cracking down on unused and low quality images. Metroid.gif DarkMetroid567okay 01:57, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

Support Per DM, this would be very handy indeed. Madnessfan34537 lL5xjBH.png 05:59, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

Support Custodians should be able to delete files with the new image project about, Custodians could help a lot. Hey, the more the merrier. --Personal AndImBatman Sig imageBats a.k.a Rarity Filly  07:34, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

Support I proposed this at the original overhaul forum, but it kinda got unnoticed. --MLGisNot4Me talk 09:58, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

It seems you were right all along, friend  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  19:14, August 4, 2012 (UTC)
No, wait, actually I proposed that custodians could edit all pages including blogs (and archives which were then protected). But close enough, I suppose. I've seen some people propose this as well previously though. --MLGisNot4Me talk 09:22, August 5, 2012 (UTC)

Support It would be a lot useful to delete the image instead of tagging it. Platinum Trophy PS3 icon Joseph Tan l talk l edit count l contribs l Platinum Trophy PS3 icon 10:04, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

Support This would be very handy for the custodians in cleaning out the filespace of unused images. 132527029757.gifArgorrath おしゃべり%E7%95%B0%E8%AD%B0%E3%81%82%E3%82%8A.jpg10:20, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Seems like it'd be handy for custodians. --KλT 11:17, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Supression of redirects is quite similar to deletion. No reason not to have both. I agree a concise review of current custodians should be conducted. 222 talk 13:34, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

Support - I don't see any negative reason for why this could be a bad idea. KUDLq.png 13:36, August 4, 2012 (UTC)
