We really need a category for Orphaned Images so we can just tag the images and let the administrators know about them so they can delete it, that would be even faster than the "deletion tag" (never used it). Well, maybe not a category something like a button, for us the users to be able to delete orphaned images from the wiki. (ONLY ORPHANED ONES)

To support the addition of a new category, write: Support 1.
To support the addition of a new button allowing us to delete the image, write: Support 2.

Support - As nominator. Makxtrl Talk 02:39, September 29, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - This category already exists in the form of Special:UnusedFiles and in RuneScape:Orphanage. Also, idea #2 is not feasible, as the software prohibits any deletions from non-admin users, and there are possibilities for abuse. --Quarenon  Talk 04:01, September 29, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - On top of that, there are already administrators monitoring Special:UnusedFiles on a daily basis, so there's really no need to add SpeedyD tags to them. C.ChiamTalk 06:52, September 29, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Players could delete any image from all its articles, then delete it as an artificially orphaned image. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 06:55, September 29, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Unneedded, and per above. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 14:47, September 29, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Quarenon and Caleb. Even at quiet times, there's usually one or two admins refreshing Category:Speedy deletion candidates and deleting applicable images... not really slow. At least, the speed can't be improved by another category... stick with {{d}}. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 15:03, September 29, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Very good points! Especially Psycho Robot's one. I never thought about that. Makxtrl Talk 17:59, September 29, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Per all not supporting. This would be chaos to have just anyone able to delete and this is already watched over and we have methods for handling this well. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 20:31, September 29, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Cat Ruud (talk)(Suggest me naems) 10:41, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Per above. The {{d}} tag is more than sufficient for what we do as administrators if you really think something needs to go. I wouldn't mind perhaps a category that is "unused images with requested holds" or something that would be marked as currently unused images that may be used in a future article that hasn't been written yet. That isn't the same thing that is being proposed here, however. --Robert Horning 17:18, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

Closed - No consensus to implement any of the proposed changes. C.ChiamTalk 05:46, October 9, 2009 (UTC)
