June then schoolEdit

I'd like to propose Schools for September or (preferably) October since that's when school (usually?) starts after the summer break (currently there's a lot of stress from exams and soon students won't be going to school).

As far as June which is still undiscussed I have no opinion so my randomized vote is "On the move". --Trougnouf (talk) 20:10, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

School, I think should be in September as that is a month often associated with it. "On the move" sounds good to me for June, Other 5 votes themes include:

Maybe the second one for June could be some "indoor" theme like Games or Measurements. --Jarekt (talk) 01:50, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Let's ask User:Achim Raschka, if he thinks doing the games now would be a good idea this month - he runs a project on games on de.WP. Achim, now or later, what do you think? --Kritzolina (talk) 06:26, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
@Kritzolina: I think it does not matter - especially when it comes to traditional games they are played year-round. In this case I really would love to see more than just chess, backgammon and checkers ... -- Achim Raschka (talk) 12:19, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
@Achim Raschka: The challenge is on and there are some nice ones from games I did not know about already uploaded. --Kritzolina (talk) 20:03, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Rigging votesEdit

May challenge had an interesting case where user MarcoC80, either created 3 sockpuppets to vote for his challenge entries or asked 3 friends editing from the same location to do so. See Commons:Requests for checkuser/Case/Frankbag12345. The 3 new accounts uploaded around 50 useless images each to go around 50 edit requirement for voting. All 4 accounts were blocked and votes were disqualified. If you see other suspicious votes, please report them here. --Jarekt (talk) 15:40, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Very sad to see this and well done for spotting it. We had a sock-to-vote-for-myself problem on Feature Pictures with one user earlier this year. It isn't like there's a prize for either forum, so it is a pretty lame thing to do. -- Colin (talk) 19:17, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
