Challenges open for voting - Voting is open to all registered contributors who have held accounts for at least 10 days and made 50 edits, and also to new Commons contributors who have entered the challenge with a picture. Some users don't care about these rules. User Happylittle7 for example votes without being eligible.

The final vote count only counts eligible votes. The software processing the votes actually flags all non-eligible ones, and after manual verification they are removed. If you look at past voting pages you can often see removed votes based on those rules. --Jarekt (talk) 02:09, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

September challengeEdit

For September challenge I was thinking about:

The first one was set for September for a while. Anybody has better idea? --Jarekt (talk) 02:23, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

My one concern about schools as a theme is the potential for taking photographs of other people's children without parental consent. However, if the images generally avoid focusing on the children, this should not be a problem. BD2412 T 02:36, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
User:BD2412, Commons:Photographs of identifiable people does not have anything special about children. I think for them the same rules apply as for adults, so in most countries pictures outside would be OK. --Jarekt (talk) 11:05, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support. I don't think children pictures would be an issue so long as they are legal in their respective jurisdiction. I personally think of schools as pretty higher education buildings so they didn't cross my mind but this doesn't seem disturbing to me in the slightest. I also don't see the need to restrict emotions to humans only but I support either way. --Trougnouf (talk) 08:31, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
The idea of restricting the photographs to people, come from the fact that it is easy to take whole bunch of photos of kittens or puppies and than assign emotions to them. It is harder to photograph people. --Jarekt (talk) 11:10, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Full grown cats even, you make a good point. :) --Trougnouf (talk) 11:17, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
I don't know how useful they are for documentary purposes, but we got some good artistic pictures for the Emotions challenge already. Lots of submissions, and only six pictures with a non-human animal so far (and on two of the six, a human is the one with the emotion), thanks to a good set of examples to suggest humans only. – b_jonas 01:13, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
