Moved from en:Wikitravel:Feature requests by Evan

IWBNI images could be renamed without having to download them and then upload them with the changed name. — Ravikiran 11:21, 15 July 2006 (EDT)

Wouldn't it, though? Jeez, that'd be great. The main problems I see are that either a) articles that used the old name would no longer have the image in them or b) we'd have to figure out a way to make an "image redirect" work (so that the old name would "redirect" to the new name). I think this could be pretty interesting. --Evan 12:25, 15 July 2006 (EDT)
Ah yes, the first thing I tried was to use the move function on the image. It told me that images could not be moved. I see how getting an image redirect to work inline could be a complication. — Ravikiran 12:57, 15 July 2006 (EDT)
I'm closing this for now, it would cause major issues across language versions – cacahuate talk 04:49, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
