How it works[edit] Files uploaded to Wikipedia can only be renamed by administrators, file movers, and Wikimedia stewards. If you belong to any of the user groups above, and therefore have the 'movefile' right, just use the "move" tab as you would normally on a regular page. If you're not a file mover, you can place {{rename media}} on the image description page, which will put the page into Category:Wikipedia files requiring renaming. A file mover will perform the move, if it conforms to the guidelines described below. File movers should follow the instructions on the template. File movers cannot move a file if precisely the same file name exists on Commons. Administrators, however, can do so, because they have the 'reupload-shared' right. Commons files[edit] Files uploaded to Commons cannot be renamed by Wikipedia administrators or filemovers. To request the rename of a file at Commons, follow the instructions at Commons:File renaming. File redirects[edit] Shortcut Wikipedia:FILEREDIRECT As when a page is moved, a redirect is left when moving files. In most cases the file redirect should remain on the original page, except if the original name falls under one of the revision deletion criteria (purely disruptive, grossly insulting, privacy breaching, etc.) or shadows a file on Commons.

What files should be renamed?[edit] Shortcut WP:FMV/W Wikipedia:File names describes how files should be named. In general, Wikipedia aims to provide stable file names as these may be being used by tools outside of Wikipedia. Currently there are nine widely undisputed uses for rename requests: No. Aim Examples (old name) Examples (new name) Shortcut 1 Uploader requested WP:FNC#1 2 Change from completely meaningless names into suitable names, according to what the image displays File:22785u9ob807b3c4f4.jpg File:DSC_1342.jpg File:Tower_Bridge_2009.jpg File:Pretoria_Venningpark.jpg WP:FNC#2 3 Correct misleading names into accurate ones File:!My_cuTe!!_MOUSSE.JPG File:1BIGGest_nOSE_everS33n.JPG File:Dutch_pet_rabbit.jpg File:John_Doe_at_concert.jpg WP:FNC#3 4 Change generic bio-names into binomial scientific names File:Unknown_insect_02.jpg File:Unidentified_flowers_HFJ.jpg File:Hogna_radiata_02.jpg File:Echinops_setifer_Japan.jpg WP:FNC#4 5 Correct obvious errors in file names (e.g. wrong proper nouns or false historical dates) File:Ayres_Rock_3.png File:Van_Gogh_portrait_1787.jpg File:Ayers_Rock_3.png File:Van_Gogh_portrait_1887.jpg WP:FNC#5 6 Harmonize file names of a set of images (so that only one part of all names differs) to ease their usage in templates (e.g. diagram symbols, scans of pages of a book, maps) File:Bhf-BS-Icon.svg File:Icon_HST_bs_1.svg File:Dst_symbol.svg etc. File:BSicon_BHF.svg File:BSicon_HST.svg File:BSicon_DST.svg etc. WP:FNC#6 7 Disambiguate files with overly similar names. The software allows for multiple different files to have the same name, but with different capitalization (see ninja example) or different expressions of the same filetype extension (see bunny example). However, these are not ideal situations. File:Ninja.jpg File:NINJA.jpg Also File:Bunny.jpg File:Bunny.jpeg File:Bunny.JPEG File:Ninja_1.jpg File:Ninja_2.jpg Also File:Bunny_1.jpg File:Bunny_2.jpg File:Bunny_3.jpg WP:FNC#7 8 Remove pejorative, offensive or crude language that would not be appropriate in the file description File:Stupid fat bitch.jpg File:Worstpersonever.png File:Kill that nazi leader.JPG File:<Name of the person>.jpg File:<Name of the person>.png File:<Name of the person>.JPG WP:FNC#8 9 Rename files that shadow a Commons file or redirect[1] File:Dog.jpg Commons:File:Dog.jpg File:Golden Retriever.jpg Commons:File:Dog.jpg WP:FNC#9 After moving the file, please replace all uses of the old file link with the new one. If a file name on English Wikipedia conflicts with a file name at Commons, please check the File usage on other wikis before deciding which should be renamed. Renaming a file at Commons might affect 500+ projects instead of just one. If the file was moved per WP:FNC#9, after all of the links have been updated, please place {{Db-redircom}} on the leftover redirect (file movers), or delete the leftover redirect using the summary generated by {{Db-redircom}} (administrators). Please see speedy deletion criterion G6 for more information. Additional naming conventions and exceptions from the above list might be discussed for specific projects. What files should not be renamed?[edit] Shortcut WP:FMNN As a matter of principle, it is best to leave all files with generally valid names at their locations, even if slightly better names may exist. So, for example: File:TowerBridge'09.jpg should not be renamed to File:Tower_Bridge_2009.jpg only because the latter looks a bit better. File:Thiswouldbebetterwithspaces.jpg should not be renamed to File:This would be better with spaces.jpg. However, situations that could cause confusion are to be avoided.

Notes[edit] ^ An image on Commons cannot be used here if a locally uploaded image has the same filename, and the Commons guidelines strongly discourage renaming a Commons image for this reason alone. v t e Wikipedia accounts and governance Unregistered (IP) users Why create an account?
