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.

Vue antérieure de humain de sexe féminin et masculin.jpgEdit


Could you please correct some mistakes on your file File:Vue antérieure de humain de sexe féminin et masculin.jpg?

  1. «Organes génitaux chez les femelles» : change «femelles» by «femmes» (mâle/femelle (male/female) are not used for humans, use homme/femme (man/woman) only)
  2. «Bras» (arm) indicates the part of the upper limb from the shoulder to elbow. From elbow to wrist, the correct word is «avant-bras» (forearm)
  3. Same thing for the lower limb: «cuisse» from the hip to knee ; «jambe» from knee to ankle.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact on my Wikipédia. Ratachwa (talk) 00:11, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank you very much for those corrections Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg I've updated the image now. You're very welcome to post again if you have more comments. Mikael Häggström (talk) 08:54, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the notification. I left a comment there. Mikael Häggström (talk) 17:16, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Hi Mikael, in the DR discussion you hinted that you would try to talk the hospital/radiology dep. where the discussed images were created. Any information from that so far? --Túrelio (talk) 16:56, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
I've sent an email to the radiology department requesting permission for its current usage, so I'm currently awaiting a reply from them. I was a bit reluctant to do so first because I was worried that doing so would imply that all uploaders of X-rays would have to do the same, but finding that there is a general discussion on the issue at Commons:Requests for comment/Xrays I don't worry very much about that any more. Mikael Häggström (talk) 17:37, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
I've now keep-closed the DR. Thanks for your efforts and sorry that you got involuntarily caught in a unnecessarily inflammatory basic discussion. --Túrelio (talk) 07:50, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks very much for having acquired the permission. In my view, this is the best possible solution. --Eleassar (t/p) 08:02, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
No problem Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg And as for the discussion, I admit the vast majority of it is still too-long-didn't-read for me. Still, I hope there will be a solution for all other X-rays out there as well. Mikael Häggström (talk) 12:13, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

Permission to use your figure neededEdit

Dr. Häggström,

I handle the production of the American Journal of Physiology-Regulatory, Intergrative and Comparative Physiology journal. I have a research paper that is citing and using the figure (or part of it) you have posted in Wikipedia ( Alhtough Wikipedia states on their website that one is free to copy, distribute, and transmit the work and adapt the work published on the website, we must have the copyright holder of the diagram give written permission to use that figure in our journals. It appears that you may be the sole copyright holder. If this is incorrect, can you direct me to the copyright holder of this figure? If you are the copyright holder, please send me a letter giving us permission to use your figure in the research paper. If there is another person who shares the copyright with you, I will need that person's permission as well. You may send the permission to me through my email (

Thank you.

Republication of one of your images in our physiology journalsEdit

Mr. Häggström,

We would like to correspond with you regarding republication of one of your images. We realize it is currently available under CC license, but we wish to discuss via e-mail, briefly. Krysia Moore may have also contacted you about this. Thanks in advance for your kind response. -Mark

M. L. Goodwin, ELS ( Editorial Manager, Publications

Yes, I got the message from Krysia Moore, and I've given a reply to her email address. I wish you all the best with the project. Mikael Häggström (talk) 07:20, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi Mikkel,

My reply was different. See Wikipedia:User_talk:Slashme#Permission_to_republish_a_figure. They may publish the figure, because we have given them that right, but I refuse to make things even easier for a closed-access journal. The modern world doesn't need these parasites. I know that's a strong word, but I'm completely willing to support that characterisation of academic publishers. --Slashme (talk) 07:40, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

That's some food for thought for the next time I get a request for permission. I hope the entire scientific community will turn to open-access sites, but the progress is too slow. Mikael Häggström (talk) 10:08, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Human body diagramsEdit

Dear Sir,

Regarding Human body diagrams. I am having some difficulty producing the same quality images as e.g. File:Bacterial infections and involved species.png

I am trying to make something similar but with following content:

  • brain
  • nasal and oral cavities
  • paranasal air sinuses
  • salivary glands
  • pharynx
  • trachea, bronchi & lungs
  • esophagus, stomach
  • liver, pancreas
  • large and small intestines
  • kidneys

I am thinking that it might be easier for me to start with bacterial infections and work from there... do you know how I can get a copy without any text or labels? Many thanks for any help you can provide me in this matter,


Hello Zoe,
I'm delighted to hear that you find the diagrams useful for your project Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg Indeed, perhaps the easiest way is to use the File:Bacterial infections and involved species.svg in for example Inkscape and work from there. I don't have any version of that particular one without text or labels, but you can easily delete the text therein in Inkscape if you need to. Also, I should put paranasal sinuses among the Human body diagrams/Organs within a cuple of days so that you can use them on the other images at Human body diagrams#How to derive an image if you so choose. There isn't an image of the salivary glands, but being so small I don't think it matters very much since you would hardly see them anyway.

wrong representation of bursa prepatellaris ?!!Edit

please see

--HilmarHansWerner (talk) 23:40, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the notification Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg The updated image is hopefully a better representation. Mikael Häggström (talk) 05:08, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
Looks great! may be you could also help with a clear 3d-image or a series of sectional images showing clearly the constellation of bursae and the articular capsule, especially how and where the bursae are in connection with the capsule?! this is of importance (for me privately and) for every (future) surgeon. --HilmarHansWerner (talk) 05:48, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm glad you like it Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg I agree 3D images would be even better, but unfortunately I won't have time for such a project in any foreseeable future.

Graph of blood valuesEdit

  Dear Dr. Häggström:
  Thanks for the graph!  It's a tour de force, and a work of art, to boot.
              Best wishes,
