Picture of the Year voting round 1 openEdit

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Category:Hanomag AL 28Edit

Hello Ain92!

This edit by you is partly not correct because not every AL 28 was a truck of the Bundeswehr. Please undo this. Thank you in advance. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 10:39, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

This truck was initially designed for this organisation. This Wikipedia:Be bold-thing applies to Wikipedia but not for Commons; especially not for users who do tons of edits - as such it is far better to contact the editor in order to avoid future similiar failures. Thanks for your support. --High Contrast (talk) 10:59, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Yes, that's my fault, you're right. I changed category for Mil. trucks of Germany, is it OK? Of course, I offered you to be bold not instead of informing me, but together with it. Ain92 (talk) 11:09, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

When marking duplicatesEdit

Hi. When marking a file as a duplicate, please do not delete the template, just add the extra template. It makes the evaluation process a lot easier that way. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:10, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Oh, and we cannot speedy delete files of alternate formats as duplicates. If they are to be deleted, they need to go through a normal deletion process as per Commons:Deletion policy. Normally, I would just wrap then in {{other version}} and poke them into the other version = field.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:17, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Hello. I used to do it only when I was sure when all the useful information was copied to another file. However, I won't remove the {{information}} from now on. And what "alternate formats" do you mean? I have marked no files in the case of bitmap/vector graphics mentioned in the policy. Ain92 (talk) 13:53, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
    You have marked files as {{duplicate}} and that is a request to speedy delete the image, as per this edit. Maybe you were looking for {{other version}}.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:14, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
    • No, I wasn't. I haven't noticed any difference between these photos untill now, could you please do as here? Ain92 (talk) 15:52, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
      You are still marking cropped images as duplicates. To note that the community can carry cropped images, they are different, there is no specific reason to delete. You seem to misunderstand the purpose of the deletion, it is to remove duplicates as there is zero benefit in having them, whereas cropped images appear that way purposely. We are not saving disk space, so look to deletion is when things are outside of the scope of Commons.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:20, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
      • Sorry, it was unintentional. What about purpose of deletion, I'm doing all this marking of course not to save disk space (moreover, in Russian Wikipedia I belong to the inclusionists), but I just want articles to use images of higher quality. Maybe there's another way to automatically replace old images with new ones than deleting them? It would be the most convinient variant. Ain92 (talk) 15:32, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
        There is the ability to replace linking of one image with another through CommonsDelinker, though it is currently out-of-action. That said, it is not the job of Commons to force upon the wikis the opinions of Commons-denizens. They may have chosen to use a specific image for a specific reason, also acting from Commons should be done cautiously and with checking. It shouldn't be done on whim, or personal preference alone.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:35, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
        • So you know, when the CommonsDelinker is going to be repaired? What's "denizens"? And did you call replace of this with this a whim? Ain92 (talk) 14:39, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

I won't merge as {{duplicate}} cropped images, so please don't use that as the reasoning. The guideline to which you point is about versions of images where the versions are visible and comparable, duplicates is about a clear deletion. They should not be speedied, they should go through a normal deletion process.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:06, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Please do not nominate NARA images for deletionEdit

NARA sourced images acquired through the in-residence program should neither be nominated for deletion, nor deleted. Also would you note that images that are of a different quality, image intensity, etc. that makes them different images, not necessarily exact duplicates. So pretty much if there is some judgement calls, these shouldn't be speedy deleted, but go through a normal deletion process where the community can comment. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:30, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

MG TD != FerrariEdit

Could you please explain this: and also Category:Ferrari Rosso?

These are MGs, not Ferraris.

Thanks Andy Dingley (talk) 15:43, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Of course not Ferraris, it's a technical error — I wanted to move several images of red MG TD to Red roadsters as I did with black ones. I've already fixed it. Ain92 (talk) 15:48, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

I would like to support you: regarding Category:Athens War MuseumEdit

Hello Ain92!

I can transfer all files from this flickr album within a few minutes. But if I do so, you must stop your flickr transfer in order to prevent the creation of duplicates. Afterwards, you can work on the transferred files. As such you can spare your time. What do you think? Regards, High Contrast (talk) 22:26, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Good night, High Contrast and thanks for your attention.
  • You can't transfer all of the images from the album because for some of them author prohibited commercial usage. Also I've already transferred all of the images that seem to be interesting for me and I'm not dying to categorise dozens of photos of uniforms, ancient weapons and the like. In conclusion I'm going to bed soon. So it seems reasonable create a subcategory of To be checked and upload all files you can there.
  • Best regards, Ain92 (talk) 22:39, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Which to saveEdit

I appreciate the effort you are making to eliminate duplicate images, however I think it is simple courtesy to keep the earlier upload, particularly when it links the original source rather than an image-scraping site. And is more deeply categorized to boot. Dankarl (talk) 03:48, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Sysops unify information when deleting dupes, so the remaining image takes all the best from the duplicates (including categorisation). I misread the date of your upload as 2013, not 2012, I apologize for inconvenience. Ain92 (talk) 08:30, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the explanation. In my experience, the information unification by sysops is pretty spotty, so I always try to do it myself if I nominate a duplicate or one of my uploads is nominated. Dankarl (talk) 13:46, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

File:Romanian Krupp 75 mm field gun M1904, Tasmania.jpgEdit

Commons-emblem-issue.svg File:Romanian Krupp 75 mm field gun M1904, Tasmania.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

Hello. Where have you taken this picture? Thank you in advance. Ain92 (talk) 14:47, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Hello, i've taken this picture in Peterhof Captainm (talk) 21:03, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Well, I can add only the fact that Flow92 practice "crossed" categorizing, just as with [[Category:Fordson WOT]] and [[Category:Fordson WOT 6/8]], and this is similar to behaviour of Zweileben mentioned on latter one's TP. And I'll watch this case of course. Ain92 (talk) 05:46, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Category:Austin K2/YEdit

Yes, I agree it certainly looks that way and fits with what little I have about them but it seems to be an overcat. It seemed to me the trouble is they appear twice and so are double counted. First as Austin Military vehicles (which I left) and then again (as you have restored it) as a variant of a K2. Is there a different solution to this? Eddaido (talk) 01:56, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Well, I wanted to ask community what to do in such situations a long time ago, but it would take for me too much time to formulate and translate my thoughts in English. However, I will try to explain the problem in few words.
  • I see at least two cases, when the most reasonable actions can come into collision with COM:CAT in the part of overcategorisation. I'll try to illustrate a different from this one with an imaginary example:
  1. If picture displays, e.g., an Austin K2 and some other Austin military vehicle(s), which I don't want to create a subcategory to place (because it would be the only one image or because I'm not sure about the correct designation) or just simply can't identify it (or them) and so far place it in some sort of Category:Unidentified….
  2. We have a tradition to place modifications of vehicles, weapons etc. in the category of the basic vehicle, such as here. So we can see sometimes it can cause the situation that, as you said, "seems to be an overcat".
  • So I ask you to think about other similar cases and look for discussion on the forums. About a year ago I found noting. As far as you seems to be a native speaker it probably will be easier for you to formulate the problem than for me and maybe ask for different solution on forums. Thank you in advance, Ain92 (talk) 09:57, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Re:Army History Museum and Park in KecelEdit

Hello! Thank you! About the row of artillery pieces, I have pictures just from two guns, because I made more than 300 pictures there, than my camera's battery went dead. That was very annoying for me, because I missed most of the artillery and all of the airplanes there, but I hope in the future I can visit the Park again. Anyway as I remeber there were examples of WWI artillery of Austria-Hungary, some WWII guns like PaK 35/36 and leFH 18 and a few post WWII era guns. Cooper6 (talk) 00:30, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Hello. After I'd twice confronted with such difficulties, I bought a second accumulator for this case. =) I found on the Flickr quite a lot of photos from there (e.g., [1], [2] and [3]), there're some rusty gun barrels, and in the row you haven't photographed a 8 cm 5/8 M., some Kruppsche 7,5 cm Feldkanone L/30 and a 10,5 cm l.F.H. 18/40. The post-war guns should be very mass-produced Soviet ones, so they are of much less interest (unless they're Czechoslovak Škodas). Ain92 (talk) 08:30, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Belgrade Renault FTEdit

If you feel that the change you suggest will improve Wikipedia, then it would seem to me that it would be helpful and collaborative if you made that change. Returning to a previous, incorrect version does not seem to be a way of improving matters. I don't know what your change involves, so maybe you could go ahead with it yourself. Regards, Hengistmate.

  • Hello.
  • I believe that FT-17 is an incorrect designation, but it's against COM:CAT to replace a "blue" (existing) category with a "red" (non-existent) one. You have to create new category with right name, copy all the text from the old one, then place {{catredirect|%new_category_name%}} there and then the bot will move all the files from the old category to the new one.

What are you doing with this file? --High Contrast (talk) 16:49, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R2 AnnouncementEdit

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open!Edit

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Re: Cañón Schneider de 105 mm L 17,8 Modelo 1928Edit

Yes, off course. As stated in Commons:Categories: "Category names should generally be in English, (see Commons:Language policy). However, there are exceptions, such as some proper names, biological taxa and names for which the non-English name is most commonly used in the English-language (or there is no evidence of usage of an English-language version)". "Cañón Schneider de 105 mm L 17,8 Modelo 1928" is an equivalent in Spanish for "105mm L17.8 M1928 Field Gun" (in English), as you can read here. Really, the desambiguation [Schneider] is not necesary. Regards, --Metrónomo's truth of the day: "That was also done by the president" not an excuse. 02:32, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

How can I help?Edit

Not quite sure if I can add anything myself comment wise but I'll do what I can. As far as who took the picture, I'm a Crew Chief (not pilot if it matters). It was taken right outside to the east of Qargha'l. The river is directly fed from the Qargha Reservoir, which is a lake that has a to the east. It was taken late fall, early winter before the snow season so it was still running low, which you can see the silt showing. Farmers that depend on the river were either harvesting or preparing to harvest at the time of capture. The nearby Lake Qargha I believe is a salt lake, and a small stream (small at the time) directly north of Qargha'l seemed to be feeding into this river, which seemed to come from much farther up north in the mountains. Farther east of the river there were some boats and many more farms. In the early fall, this river provided for one of the greenest places I've seen around Kabul, much to contrast the neighboring high deserts. The altitude is also much lower than Kabul, sitting ~2000ft MSL verse ~5000ft MSL at Kabul International, so it's also much hotter and humid year-round.

If there's anything specific you're looking for, I can try and find out. I think I also have another picture or two of this particular river if it'll help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Phickmanfresh (talk • contribs) 11 April 2014, 20:41 (UTC)

  • Hello again and thanks for the comment. I checked Google maps, satellite images and a 1980s Soviet 1:50,000 map including the northern part of Kabul, found both Qargha village and reservoir (and also ~2150 m above MSL mountain of the same name), and the river flowing there is so small that it isn't yet named! Is there an only Qargha Reservoir near Kabul? The geotag appears to be north from the Darunta Reservoir (its level is about 600 m ≈ 2000 ft above MSL). Do you agree the river on photo is Kabul River? Best regards, Ain92 (talk) 22:06, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
  • After reviewing the map a couple more times, the river that runs east from Kabul wanes into the mountains just south of where the source of the previously mentioned lake/river sits. I would say they're two different bodies. I found a few more pictures of the small river and if you're still interested, I'll look to see if I captured the Kabul river at all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Phickmanfresh (talk • contribs) 17 April 2014 (UTC)
    • So, do you insist the river on photo is that small river near Qargha? How do you estimate typical width of the river on photo? Ain92 (talk) 15:32, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
      • Yes. It is definitely the river near Qargha'l. Typical width is approx. 100 - 200 yards. There was what looked to be a guy a little further east fishing in a boat, so there must be some depth. Didn't seem that deep in the late Fall though.
        • Do you mean the river at 34°32'36"N 69°03'24"E? It isn't even 10 m in width! Also it's much higher than "2000ft MSL". Ain92 (talk) 17:03, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
