''[moved from [[User talk:Kynikos#Deleting an old and unused uploaded file]], that's why the post starts with "Hey!" :P -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 13:36, 6 September 2012 (UTC)]''
Hey! [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/File:Archlinux_logo_aqua.png This file] is the old Arch logo, and it is not linked to from any pages, so it should probably be deleted.<br>

:Hey, actually there are some other [[Special:UnusedFiles|unused and useless files]], before the old Arch logo I'd worry e.g. about the Gentoo logo, not to talk about [[:File:Nova-t.jpg]] (?!?), but I've always wanted to discuss this cleanup more openly instead of just making a decision on my own, and since I've never considered this as an urgent task I've always delayed it. I've moved the discussion here so I can share the responsibility with the other admins ;)
:This is the list of files I'd like to delete (at least as a start):
:*[[:File:Archlinux logo aqua.png]] (mentioned by Jstjohn)
:If anyone knows why these files should not be deleted, speak now or forever hold your peace. If somebody wants to add some other unused files to the list, I guess this is the right chance.
:I'll wait some days before deleting the files.

::Cool! And in case anyone else was unsure about [[:File:Merge-arrows.gif]], worry not. [[Template:Merge]] uses a different arrows icon. The [[:File:Nova-t.jpg]] file has a note about it being uploaded for culsu. I'm guessing "culsu" is this user: [[User:Culsu]].

:::All those files are marked for deletion now. [[:File:Nova-t.jpg]] was probably uploaded for [[Hauppauge Nova-T Stick]], but images are not allowed in articles, so it will be safe to delete it. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 12:55, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
::::The 4 files are deleted now, closing. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 16:10, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
:::::I reopened this because I just found a file we missed...not sure how we missed it though. Haha. [[:File:Archlinux_logo_aqua_small.png]]
::::::-- [[User:Jstjohn|Jstjohn]] ([[User talk:Jstjohn|talk]]) 15:23, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
:::::::Well, actually I left that file there deliberately, since it's approximately the same size as the other icons and it's currently the only Arch logo uploaded. In the end I could just delete all the unused files at once and don't think about it any more... Maybe the next 4 candidates for deletion could be:
:::::::*[[:File:Archlinux logo aqua small.png]] - proposed by Jstjohn, old logo not used anywhere
:::::::*[[:File:Fairytale Trash Questionmark.png]] - not a Tango icon like the others, used only in [[User:Axanon]] (forbidden by [[Help:Style]] btw, but there's no need to contact the user, if we decide to delete the file we can just do that and leave the red link in the user page)
:::::::*[[:File:Circle-question-red.png]] - not the same size as the other icons, not used anywhere
:::::::*[[:File:Information icon.png]] - not the same size as the other icons, not used anywhere
:::::::There would also be [[:File:Storage-plan-evms.png]] but it's used in [[Installing Arch Linux with EVMS]], I've started [[Talk:Installing Arch Linux with EVMS#Image replacement contest]] for that.

::::::::The 4 files are deleted now, [[Talk:Installing Arch Linux with EVMS#Image replacement contest]] is independent from this discussion, closing. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 13:25, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
