During/after one presentation in Haifa (Wikimania 2011) there was a
talk about http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Overwriting_existing_files
which one year after become guideline.
I'm happy about that, as that will hopefully solve a lot of problems.
But I remember when I started talking about problems on commons and
inability to solve it in a way that will benefit the project, I was
instructed to send
a mail to the mailing list.
So I saw above complaint of pretty harsh passive-aggresive behaviour
which spans almost a year (maybe more), and when finally user made
everybody is looking another way and nobody reacts.
I'm just user on commons, I'm not an admin, but I'm asking is job of
admin on commons only deleting copyvios (and there is an BLATANT
copyvio) to which
nobody reacted, and there is also blatant case of harrasment to which
also nobody reacted.
I'm admin on another WIkimedia project and I know that user vs user
bickering is sometimes better left to die of itself, but sometimes
that is not the case.
If there is an report of copyvio somebody should react, or at least I
think it should be so. Please tell me that I'm wrong and I'll shut up.
P.S. When harrasment complaint and copyvio complaint is moved to
archive as nobody reacted for a 4 days after which MiszaBot archived
it, I think something
is not right. Either admins are not doing their job, or MiszaBot is
too fast archiving topics which NEED be taken care of.
Please correct something, react to complains before MiszaBot archive
it, or put bigger delay to MiszaBot. :)
