Deleting an old and unused uploaded file

[moved from User talk:Kynikos#Deleting an old and unused uploaded file, that's why the post starts with "Hey!" :P -- Kynikos (talk) 13:36, 6 September 2012 (UTC)]

Hey! This file is the old Arch logo, and it is not linked to from any pages, so it should probably be deleted.

Hey, actually there are some other 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):
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. -- Kynikos (talk) 12:55, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
The 4 files are deleted now, closing. -- 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
-- 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:
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. -- Kynikos (talk) 13:25, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
