Picture of the Year 2013 R1 AnnouncementEdit

Round 1 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 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 are all 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.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Irrationally large SVG imageEdit

Hi Senator2029, you have marked my image “Welcome in sixteen languages.svg” as being “irrationally large.” I understand this and other drawbacks of the method used by me, and would really like to use the SVG <text> element thus reducing file size, making text searchable, etc.

On the other hand I want this image to look exactly as it does now and therefore cannot rely on the Wikimedia SVG fonts. The following fonts would be needed but aren’t present: “Gentium Plus” (or some other version of “Gentium”) for Latin and Cyrillic text; “FZKaiS-Extended” for simplified Chinese; “全字庫正楷體” for traditional Chinese; “EPSON 正楷書体M” for Japanese; and “Symbola” for the hand. (“Scheherazade” for Arabic is there.)

The SVG solution with the <text> element would be to define an SVG font in the same file using the SVG <‌font> element and its sub-elements (<glyph>, <hkern>, etc.). This is certainly feasible, but it would take me a long time to get it right — what is most difficult is to exclude redundant font information from the original fonts while retaining everything that is required for this image. As I do not want my efforts to be a waste of time my question is: Does the current MediWiki rendering software display embedded SVG fonts correctly? —LiliCharlie (talk) 16:34, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
