I feel like the wiki has a problem with images being uploaded that don’t have descriptive titles. Strings of gibberish and Downloads with time stamps aren’t really telling us what the image depicts. Perhaps an announcement letting folks know would be appropriate?
@Drleevezan That sounds reasonable to me.
I take it there's not much interest in looking to rename images so that their filenames are more descriptive?
If you're willing to put in the work, there's no one stopping you from going through all the "File:Screenshot_7808RBG67-1.png" images and renaming them to more sensible file names, but no, I don't think we should make this a big priority.
Oh, and @Kilmarnock228, what the devil is this "upload log" of which you speak?
At any rate, everyone, there's not much sense in moving the conversation now when we've all made our points here, but remember that the preferred venue for "Wiki management"-type discussion is the Discord Server. Rule 2 of Discussions is temporarily suspended (as in, we'll go ahead with what's been decided here, obviously), but please.
@Scrooge MacDuck I looked at an image, but it didn't seem to have any feature to enable me to rename it. When I pull up the edit menu it only lists the options of History, Replace, and Talk. So far as I'm aware, "Replace" would just let me upload another version of the same image but wouldn't enable me to change the image's name. The upload log can be found here; it also typically appears when you go to Special:Recentchanges on the wiki, which is where I usually go to see what's been happening on various wiki sites.
@Kilmarnock228 Ooh, I see. Well, thank you. What's the point of this page relative to Special:Images, though?
(And… ah, phooey. Yeah, the rename button is only available to admins, isn't it? Hm.)
@Scrooge MacDuck Well, maybe it's just me, but I prefer the textual list, hence why I started this discussion in the first place. I prefer to have an idea of what the image will depict before I view it.
I'll be happy to help out with renaming images.
I've renamed a few. Are the new image names good with everyone? If so, I'll continue with the renaming.
@TheMidgetMoose They look great to me.
Is the consensus that we should sent out an announcement about image names soon, or do we still need to discuss that aspect of this conversation?
I think we're good.
What do you think?
