Need help with picture[edit source]

Please help me by moving Hulagu Khan -- Silver Dirham.jpg from English Wikipedia to Commons. Thanks! --ОригМонгол 02:43, 10 Зургаадугаар сар 2008 (UTC)

I'm afraid that won't work in this case, because the "PD-old" tag on enwiki is incorrect and won't be accepted on Commons. See commons:Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag#Photograph of an old coin found on the Internet for the exact reasons. --Latebird (яриа) 04:30, 10 Зургаадугаар сар 2008 (UTC)

Spelling?[edit source]

At least online, Mongolian sources seem to prefer the spelling Хүлэгү,[1] while Хулагу is also sometimes used,[2] but primarily appears on Russian pages.[3] Which are the arguments either way? --Latebird (яриа) 05:46, 26 Зургаадугаар сар 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I know other spellings used in the Mongolian sources. So, I created REDIRECT pages for such spellings. Even "Хөлөг" is used. I checked with the Mongolian history books (written in Mongolian) on my book shelves and found that Mongols prefer "Хүлэгү" to other spellings. I will change the spellings in the articles. --ОригМонгол 05:53, 26 Зургаадугаар сар 2008 (UTC)
I see, thanks! There was just a related discussion in dewiki, so when I came here to check for the original, I was rather confused... (Btw.: When you move pages, make sure to set the checkbox to also move the associated talk page). --Latebird (яриа) 06:09, 26 Зургаадугаар сар 2008 (UTC)

Oops, it actually seems worse. Instead of moving the page correctly, you apparently just copied and pasted the contents. This is not good because the edit history of the text gets lost, which is a GFDL violation. We now need an admin to fix this and do it correctly. --Latebird (яриа) 06:12, 26 Зургаадугаар сар 2008 (UTC)

Sorry for this. I could not figure it out how I should move the whole page when there was a page with the exactly same name (I created it myself). :( Can you tell me how I shall swap the pages correctly instead of just copying and pasting. --ОригМонгол 06:21, 26 Зургаадугаар сар 2008 (UTC)
Normally a move should work when the target page has only one edit and is a redirect. Now we'll have to revert to the earlier state and then an admin can do the move (they can overwrite existing pages in any case). I've asked Chinneeb for help so it shouldn't take long. --Latebird (яриа) 08:33, 26 Зургаадугаар сар 2008 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! --ОригМонгол 08:43, 26 Зургаадугаар сар 2008 (UTC)
