[NewTool] CommonsTicker is a tool written by [[w:de:User:Duesentrieb]] for collecting critical events regarding images on Commons and posting them to the wikis using the respective image. So with this tool you see what is going on with the images that your wiki is using from commons. 

[nofollow] On the English Wikipedia is the rel="nofollow" attribute now in use on external links outside the main article namespace. By adding rel="nofollow" to a hyperlink, a page indicates that the destination of that hyperlink should not be afforded any additional weight or ranking by user agents which perform link analysis upon web pages (e.g. search engines).
