    • 3 - About half your own work
    • 4 - Mostly not your own work

    • 2 - sometimes difficult
    • 3 - often difficult
  • how much do you work on categorizing commons
    • 1 - You don't categorize at all
    • 2 - You categorize your own images, but nothing else
    • 3 - You occasionally categorize images that you did not upload
    • 4 - You regularly categorize images that you did not upload
  • should all images be organized by gallery or category -- there are "competing theories" about how to organize commons using the category system. These questions refer specifically to adding categories to media files, as opposed to adding them to galleries of files and leaving only the licensing categories on the images.
    • 1 - All media files should be categorized, regardless of whether they are in a gallery or not
    • 2 - All media files should be categorized and linked by a gallery
    • 3 - All media files should either be categorized or in a gallery, but not both
    • 4 - All media files should be in galleries, and should not be categorized at all
  • do you support web-crawling for images using tools such as FlickrLickr -- the use of automated scripts and bots to search the internet for freely licensed images has supporters and detractors.
    • 1 - Support
    • 2 - Neutral
    • 3 - Oppose
  • Should featured media and media of the year be restricted to works created by Wikimedians -- "featured pictures" are shown on the main page of commons, and additional awards are given for all sorts of media. Should these be restricted to commons contributors? Wikimedia contributors?
    • 1 - Only media that is uploaded directly to commons should be considered
    • 2 - Only media that is uploaded to commons or another wikimedia project should be considered
    • 3 - All media should be considered, regardless of its source
  • are you an administrator on commons -- y for yes, n for no
  • Do you support the policy of removing administrator status from inactive administrators -- a policy was recently enacted which requires administrators to use their administrative tools in order to keep these permissions.
    • 1 - Current activity requirements should be higher
    • 2 - Current activity requirements are about right
    • 3 - Current activity requirements are too high
    • 4 - Oppose any activity requirements
  • Should users be allowed to ask that their files be deleted from commons
    • 1 - Yes, uploaders should have the right to see their uploads deleted without explanation or apology
    • 2 - Yes, uploaders should have the right to see their uploads deleted without explanation or apology, unless the file is already being used on a Wikimedia project
    • 3 - Yes, uploaders should have the right to see their uploads deleted without explanation or apology, so long as another file is available to illustrate the subject(s)
    • 4 - No, uploaders should not have the right to see their uploads deleted unless there is reason to believe that there may be licensing problems
    • 5 - No, uploaders should not have the right to see their uploads deleted unless there is solid evidence that there are licensing problems
