hmm, good point! The unfriendlyness could perhaps be tackled by a message
on the talkpage of the uploader? (or did that already happen?). Also
replacing it with an alternative template "it was uploaded for WLM, but
unfortunately outside the allowed timeslot" in friendly wordings would be a
good way.
