"Join the mailing list"Edit

Which mailing list? Could someone provide a link? --Eusebius (talk) 22:03, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

I copied content from last year's page and so now there's an email address shown. It's private apparently, so joining it would require approval (if anyone from last year's committee is still active). – Adrignola talk 01:13, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
I can request access from the list administrator for everyone if we want to start using it again - what do you think? The Helpful One 14:21, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
No objections. I had requested access to the list via the interface some time ago but never heard back. I don't know if any of the administrators are actively checking for new additions. – Adrignola talk 14:31, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
OK, there's only one list administrator at the moment, User:Kanonkas, but I can request access from him to be able to add everyone else. The Helpful One 14:38, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
Hi all, I can add anyone to the list, please subscribe at and confirm your email address by sending me an email from your user account and I'll add you (or just let me know your email address somehow). The Helpful One 16:38, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Starting dateEdit

Any word on when POTY voting will begin? Jujutacular talk 16:17, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Someone will have to have access or connections to someone with access to the central notice to kick it off. We also don't have translations for the majority of the pages. – Adrignola talk 18:37, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

On going resultsEdit

It would be a nice thing to show on going results, like in the previous contests. Alvesgaspar 12:48, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

That'd only happen with a bot, because it's impossible to do by hand. – Adrignola talk 17:23, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
not "impossible", i did an "unofficial results tracker" page for poty2008, R2 (final results were delayed for an extended period of time); but it was a hell of a lot of work, single-handed... >__<
Lx 121 (talk) 12:15, 20 May 2011 (UTC)


I guess I'm dense. Can't figure out how to cast a vote. Instructions here under "the procedure" mention "click the 'Vote' button, but I don't see one. Where do I use the template? In the "Comment" field above the word "Support"? Bmclaughlin9 (talk) 00:11, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

I seem to see some better instructions here. Jeez. Bmclaughlin9 (talk) 00:16, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

In the Galleries select a category and then under the images there is a yellow button with the words "Click here to vote". Click that, however, it only works if you have JavaScript enabled on your browser. Ancient Apparition (talk) 02:44, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
You're not dense, I have been editing the Wiki since 2002 and am a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador and it is totally confusing to me too. Where might one even find a link to that page on the main page? One might imagine that there would be some clear link to the page with all the images and then on that page there would be buttons to select the desired picture. Or maybe some instructions on how to enter your choice via an edit. This is really a terrible interface for an organization that is trying to do everything to encourage new editors. Especially if someone who has been editing on here for almost a decade has spent 10 minutes trying to figure it out. In fact, were it not for Ancient Apparition's intervention here on the help page, I still would not have figured it out. Thanks. Saudade7 (talk) 23:06, 1 May 2011 (UTC)


I went to the 'Nature views' page and voted for some photos using the voting buttons. Once clicked, it has shown 'Vote saved'. But when the next time I logged in, those photos again got the Voting buttons active. Again when I click, it shows 'Vote saved'. What is happening? Why it is again enabling voting for the pictures I already voted? How to get them are permanently voted ? --
Anish Viswa 13:35, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

If you clicked and got feedback, your vote has been saved. E.g. look here: Commons:Picture_of_the_Year/2010/R1/File:Sheet_Lightning_over_Mt_Wellington.jpg. To make 101% sure your vote has been saved, look at your contributions. -- RE rillke questions? 21:33, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

As I was not aware that the voting buttons will remain active even after voting, I double voted for some photos, thinking that my vote was not captured. Will this annul my votes for those photos or affect my eligibility to vote in the final round ?--
Anish Viswa 05:36, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

No. It will be discounted from the final tally and you will be able to vote in Round 2. theMONO 00:49, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

How many pictures am I allowed to vote for? I have already voted for this one. --Mahmudmasri (talk) 08:56, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

What's the use of it all?Edit

What is a "good" picture? One of an object I like (very subjective and quite useless generally)? An expressive one? an impressive one? Some picture technically well done? One useful for some wikipedia? for some other purpose? what purpose? How is mankind to benefit from all this? Aren't there more important things to be done? Should I (or someone else) decide to vote: which criteria are to be considered? I'm at a loss. What's the use of it all? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Empro2 (talk • contribs)

Consider voting for a picture, commons will present to "the media" / "the press". It's the same think everywhere here on commons/ wikipedia: You have to "guess" the goal of a picture and this will create the criteria. But I have to admit: There are things that are much more important. -- RE rillke questions? 21:29, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
A beautifully composed, lit, colored and photographed image still needs to be an illustration for the encyclopedia, in my thought. A gorgeous sunset isn't enough: you have to be saying when you vote , "What article is this for?"-- 00:30, 3 May 2011 (UTC)
I, so far, have been voting on those pictures that would make me do a double-take. Or ones that make me stare at them for a longer than usual period of time. -- OlEnglish (talk) 06:09, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

I would not say this vote is useless, that would be much too harsh. But when I look at the winners of previous years, and much of this years finalists, I am somewhat discontent. In my opinion, this popular vote clearly shows a bias toward easily impressing visuals, and tends to neglect the encyclopedical value of an image. Colorful, well-composed, high-resolution images with some kind of an exotic flavour seem to be the communities favourites in this vote. For example, a diagram or a press photo would hardly ever make it, no matter how much insight they would convey on their topic. But, anyway, I still enjoy this every year, although it is rather for the joy of browsing the candidates than for my concurrence with the outcome. -- Theoprakt (talk) 07:14, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

well, a couple of years ago, i was toying with proposals to create different "categories of merit" in the wmc honours system; more comprehensive than VI, QI, & FP.
something like: "technical awards", "artistic", & "useful/encyclopedic"
as well as "formalizing" & putting more emphasis on the R1 category winners.
never went anywhere tho; couldn't find anyone interested in working on it with me, & it was just too much to attempt single-handed

Wikimedia Commons POTY 2010 ineligibilityEdit

I have been messaged that I am ineligible to vote because my Wikimedia Commons account does not apply to the voting rules. That is true, but my de:Wikipedia account definitely applies to these rules. I checked it myself with the following tool: But it is true that I did not connect these two accounts before. I did that now (I hope that it is ok the way I did) and I apologize for that mistake. But I have also been messaged the following: "You voted multiple times in Round 2. You may vote only once in Round 1(the Final)." To be honest, I don't understand what you mean. How could I vote in round 2 when it hasn't even started? And why is round 1 called "the Final"? I thought that round 2 was the final. What I did was that I voted multiple times in round 1 according to the rules posted here: I don't see that I made a mistake there. I hope that this helps to clarify that my votes don't have to be struck. Thanks --Suppengrün (talk) 15:56, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Wenn Du alles wie beschrieben durchgeführt hast, begib dich nach Commons:Picture_of_the_Year/2010/Voters und trage bitte Deinen Namen dort erneut mit Bitte um erneute Prüfung ein.
Und an dieser Stelle stelle ich dem Komitee die   für Nichtbeantwortung von Fragen, schlechte Vorbereitung, viel Schickimicki und Werbung, das dann "Design" genannt wird und der teilweisen Unfähigkeit die Wikimedia-Software zu bedienen, aus. -- RE rillke questions? 21:41, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

I think I have the same problem. Probably you haven't made your account global? See: en:Wikipedia:Unified_login. Or maybe something else that is against the third rule on Commons:Picture_of_the_Year/2010/Eligibility. To I now made my account global, can I be rechecked for eligibilty? Or have i completely misunderstood something? Perhaps a link could be put in the eligibility instructions for SUL leading to some kind of description about what a SUL-account actually is? Best regards, Smuliman (talk) 21:23, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Please use cross link e.g. describt here: Commons_talk:Picture_of_the_Year/2010/Eligibility#Not sure if I can vote thanks. (not a committee-member)--RE rillke questions? 21:46, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I think I should've gotten it right now.Smuliman (talk) 22:05, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
Please resubmit on Commons:Picture_of_the_Year/2010/Voters. -- RE rillke questions? 22:07, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Why don't I fulfil the voting criteria? I think that I have more edits than necessary. --Sampi 21:29, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

As I can see, you fulfill the requirements. Just resubmit on the voters-page. Please add a link to your signature and consider using Special:MergeAccount to create a global account. -- not a committee member RE rillke questions? 22:00, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. --Sampi 18:28, 3 May 2011 (UTC)
Now, I found the problem: you forgot to link from your german/en page to commons? -- RE rillke questions? 19:09, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

I was marked as "ineligible", however i have an account on wikipedia fr. I put a link on my commons user page (i had not yet done). Is it enough ? (If it's not the case, it does not matter, i will follow the contest as spectator). Sacamol (talk) 07:49, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but you are "ineligible" because you do not have 200 edits before 01 January 2011 (177). Thanks.--miya (talk) 21:32, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Can't vote from half-year galleriesEdit

The vote buttons on the half-year gallery pages take me to the image's vote page, rather than auto-voting through JavaScript as advertised. The category galleries have working auto-vote buttons. Is this just happening to me? Is it intentional? If it is, I'd suggest that the documentation be updated, as it currently implies that any gallery will have buttons for auto-voting. -- Perey (talk) 06:52, 2 May 2011 (UTC)


Εγώ δεν ξέρω αγγλικά και φαντάζομε πάρα πολλοί χρήστες ακόμα, όσο λοιπόν τα έχετε όλα εδώ στα αγγλικά αυτόματα μας αποκλείεται , διορθώστε αυτό το πρόβλημα, είναι απαράδεκτο το εγχείρημα αυτό .

Αντί να παραπονιέσαι θα μπορούσες να βρεις κάποιον στην ελληνική Βικιπαίδεια που μπορεί να το μεταφράσει. Σίγουρα το commons θα είναι ευχαριστημένο.
In case someone was wondering, the user is complaining about the lack of a translation... well, you may have guessed. --Mushushu (talk) 21:11, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Missing 'Votes list'Edit

When a user votes on a picture, the 'Votes list' link in the gallery is no longer available. Can it be fixed, please? -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 08:31, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Please notify User:Kalan. He maintains this script. -- RE rillke questions? 22:09, 2 May 2011 (UTC)


I think I've now successfully added a link from my page to my commons account - could someone let me know if I've now done everything I need in order to vote? Thank you. Chrislintott (talk) 12:58, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

No: Please login in your en-account before adding this link. Don't edit your page from IP. -- RE rillke questions? 14:17, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Oops, sorry - hopefully this should be done now. Thanks for taking the time to explain. Chrislintott (talk) 15:01, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Please resubmit on Commons:Picture_of_the_Year/2010/Voters. -- RE rillke questions? 15:12, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Translation of SitenoticesEdit

Where can I translate the both sitenotices for the Picture of the Year competition? Thanks, --Michawiki (talk) 19:24, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

You should make a request here: MediaWiki talk:Sitenotice-translation.--Trixt (talk) 19:29, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

"Vote for this image" still visibleEdit

When clicking on the large or the small view of the galleries, then there is still the "vote for this image" below the images visible. Maybe we should fix that. --AngMoKio (座谈) 08:14, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

How many?Edit

Hello, how many images will come in the final voting round? -- 16:50, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi. The first round Category winners, second places and the top 10 overall will advance to final round voting. If a category winner or second place also happens to be in the top 10, it qualifies in two ways, reducing the total number of finalists.--Trixt (talk) 19:02, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
Ok, thanks! -- 20:35, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Round 2Edit


When the round 2 will be open ?? --ComputerHotline (talk) 14:40, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

soon --Jklamo (talk) 22:10, 18 May 2011 (UTC)


i can't find any info about voting dates for R2?

especially the close-date

i've made a reasonable effort to locate the info, so either it's buried, or not posted yet?

either way, it's kind of important that someone who can edit the pages for poty gets that up asap

(btw, it would be nice to have an "add topic" button on this page)   Done -- RE rillke questions? 21:48, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Commons:Picture of the Year/2010/Preparation#Dates. I agree, it's not easy to find. ~ Seb35 [^_^] 17:57, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I think the closing date should be shown on COM:POTY/2010 and Commons:Picture of the Year/2010/Finalists at least. --Avenue (talk) 01:51, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Change voteEdit

Hi, how can i change my votes? i made a mistake, it's possible to undo my votes? thanks Assianir (talk) 09:02, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Yes, changing your votes is easy. Also please note that you are only allowed to vote once for this round. Click "my contributions" at the top of your page, and click on the image link that you would like to remove your name from. Scroll down to the Votes section and locate your name to make sure it is there. Click edit, remove the one line containing your name, explain why you are removing your name in the edit summary, and click "save page". – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 09:50, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you a lot Assianir (talk) 10:43, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Unable to voteEdit

I was trying to vote today but got the message "Voting has not begun yet!" when i click the "Vote for this image" button.--Ankara (talk) 08:09, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Yes, some committee members wanted to start this vote and others not (they wanted to verify the winners and notify voters of the first round before). But those who don't wanted are admins and protected the pages. My suggestion: Re-visit this page in one week. not a committee member -- RE rillke questions? 08:35, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
So there is an edit war between various members of the organizing committee? That might negatively affect our reputation. People come here from all over the Wikipedia/Wikimedia-world to vote. We have been advertising for POY. And there is no information on why voting is suddenly closed.--Ankara (talk) 10:22, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
ok. so here is the problem with "protecting" the poty competition pages: when you get a disagreement between the committee members, the admins in the group can "overrule" everybody else.
this is WHY poty should NOT have been "protected" without an open discussion & consensus. we're a OPEN WIKI, & it matters when community members violate those basic principles, especially if/when the users doing so have greater powers than the average members of the community. Lx 121 (talk) 12:04, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
As far as I know, the list of finalists are not finished yet, so starting the vote in this case is not a good decision. The votes were counted by tools but not yet been checked with human, therefore we cannot rely on that completely. Also, something suspicious has encountered with the tools results too. See Commons:Picture of the Year/2010/Results/R1/Diagrams/Table; the differences between "Vote on May 6 18:24 (ignoring ineligible votes )" (made by tools) and "Vote (checked)" (made by human) give us something to work on. That's why I think we should need to re-check before the final round begins. — Tanvir | Talk ] 15:06, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
& those are perfectly good reasons to delay the vote but all of this should be happening in open discussion & by consensus NOT because the admins on the comittee "locked out" the non-admins.
right now, all there is, is confusion & a lack of open-ness/information/discussion about what's going on.
Lx 121 (talk) 15:40, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

I hope that we've found a solution to restart the 2nd round soon, please take a look at that Commons_talk:Picture_of_the_Year/2010/Preparation#Preparation_for_the_.28re.29start_of_round_2 - Hoo man (talk) 23:39, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

This lack of discipline, professionalism, and communication is incredibly disappointing. The committee is being especially unfair to those who have made such outstanding an effort to produce highly professional images for Wikimedia, and I think the confusion that has transpired is tainting the honor that these images deserve. I think a more clear explanation and apology to all the producers of candidate images, and to all of us who have already voted in Round 2, would be incredibly helpful. There is still a lot we all don't understand and need clarified, and I think trying to sift through an absolutely massive discussion thread will only make us more confused. Not to mention, there are users out there who will probably remain completely unaware that their vote was potentially nullified, and deserve another chance to make it count. Sinisterminister (talk) 07:15, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

This year I've only voted, without helping: I liked this version, I think it looks really better than last years. If you have interanl problems, don't affect voters. I suggest you to postpone the 2nd round, it's easy! You should write everywhere that the second round will start soon, due to techical problems. Bye, --sNappyml 15:03, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Errors in the resultsEdit

I browsed the table of results (here) and found several unchecked votes and unstriked invalid votes. Also, my counting didn't always agree with the reults. One example: Commons:Picture of the Year/2010/R1/File:Children of Kabul, Afghanistan.jpg (87 votes, instead of 85?). -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 08:41, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

OK, so now what?Edit

it's been about 5 days now, since the "premature start" of R2 voting (& subsequent close of same)

i've scanned through all the (seemingly) relevant pages @ poty 2011: planning, talk, q&a, committee, etc.

& there is no news

no "official" explanation

no recent updates

so what is the situation, currently?

Has everyone given up on POTY? Badzil (talk) 19:36, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Isn't the Commons community supposed to be running this? Someone, anyone, should just get it started already.. -- OlEnglish (talk) 02:42, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
Apparently there were some problems with the selection of finalist images. Someone was supposed to review this but it seems that everything's currently stalled. Badzil (talk) 11:49, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
Please see the section above. Béria Lima msg 12:47, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
which one? Lx 121 (talk) 15:00, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

I was under the impression people were taking the reins on this. While I first started many of the pages and was the first to add my name to the committee list, I didn't expect to have to hold hands all the way though this. Very few people are working on OTRS tickets for Commons and all my time is taken up on those and I can't even effectively get to backlogs on Commons. So there's no way I'm counting votes by hand. I thought people had tools for this. It's been frustrating from the start, with the entire POTY 2009 committee disappearing and even that one was completely new from 2008 and before. I don't think there will be a POTY 2011. – Adrignola talk 15:12, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Is there anyone that could assert the situation, write a list of tasks to be done so that the voting can start again? I might be able to help but don't know what to do. Badzil (talk) 15:43, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
Count the votes of eligible voters :) of the R1 and put it in some table. Make sure you check the revision history, whether somebody removed votes, voted under another name, manipulated other votings, ... . If the committee would ask friendly, I would write a script for next year. Or ask Kalan. RE rillke questions? 17:32, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Introduction & dates?Edit

On this page Commons:Picture of the Year/2010, which labelled as "Introduction & dates", I cannot find any dates on that page. Then, how can people know when Round 2 starts? ...Kenrick95 11:49, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Yes, this is absurd. I was thinking of posting about this in a blog, but am not going to suggest people vote when the voting may already be closed. Voting ends when? Medeis (talk) 16:10, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Deleted VotesEdit

It looks like a user accidentally deleted a bunch of votes from one of the images here. I wasn't sure how the voting system worked, otherwise I would have just undone the edit.--Bkwillwm (talk) 17:19, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

This was not accidentally, even if I assume good faith. Votes have been removed and commented out. -- RE rillke questions? 19:21, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

My Commons profile links to my Wikipedia profile - I wasn't aware the reverse was necessary. Is that the problem? Obviously I can fix that. -Izzardo-Erolos (talk) 17:28, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
Fix it, removing your old vote-cast, ask for a new check of your eligibility and vote again after you have linked from an eligible WP-account. -- RE rillke questions? 19:00, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Final: some people voted for more than one photographEdit

By browsing the different results, I've noticed that some users voted for more than one photograph, for instance User:Da voli, User:Mystère Martin, User:Popo le Chien or User:Olyvar (some others have voted twice for the same photograph, by the way). Is this a big problem ? -- Basilus (talk) 20:02, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

"vote for this image" is unclearEdit

The yellow "vote for this image" button is not clear; it could mean a vote for the below image.

It would be a simple enhancement to change the text to "vote for the above image" instead. Carlaude (talk) 15:12, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

crosslink againEdit

My vote was rejected, but I have an account crosslinked with commons. Please recheck my vote. Mik (talk) 13:58, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
