Would a wikimin please make the following name changes to images I've uploaded as to avoid duplicate uploads.

BalthoryLjubicic.jpg to BathoryLjubicic.jpg
Jafar.jpg to Jafaral-Nassir.jpg
Xena.jpg to XenaColby.jpg

I can delete them for you and you can upload them under the new names.

I would do that, but it wouldn't let me upload AnimalpersonExample-Bunnyperson.jpg until I ignored all warnings because I used the same picture as the old Enrica.jpg, which Caeli deleted.  On top of that, I already have the pictures up in my character thread and would rather not have the "?/??" part of the urls change.  Thus, I'd rather have the names of the files changed.

I'm not sure you can actually manually change file names once they've been uploaded - from what I remember, it's actually not possible. The easiest way would simply be to make a duplicate upload (even though the wiki gives you a warning, you can still upload the image), then edit the categories of the images that you want deleted to be [[Category:Delete]].

Yes, precisely so. Ergo, I can delete the old ones for you and you can upload the new ones, but we can't rename the old ones. :)

Okay.  The new ones are uploaded.

It is possible, look under the Move tab : ) I don't think it requires admin help though.

That is true, it does not.

I actually don't see a "Move" tab when I'm on an image page, so I'm assuming it's something only Wikimins can do?

I can move normal wiki pages, though.

I learn new things every once in a while with the wiki. *nodnod*

Anyway, you're welcome, and let us know if you need anything else!

This is true.  The move tab only appears on normal pages, not on images (for non-admins).

(Mea culpa, I'd only checked a normal page before.)

Will a gallery show up intermingled with text on a final page because, when I was previewing an update of my user page, my gallery of Arti's pictures wouldn't show up?

Of course, it will show up providing it's coded right.  I used brackets ([]) around the image "tag" on the wiki last night.
