Welcome to Wikimedia Commons, Bk1 168!



Happened to see this and other edits concerning the same name. May I suggest using "Hörsne" rather than "Hoersne"? There doesn't appear to be a problem with using ö in other image files, and image names are more likely to be copied and pasted rather than typed, so keyboard layout etc should not be a problem. The "Gotland-" part could also be dropped, as there doesn't appear to be any other Hörsne kyrka. --Hegvald (talk) 06:04, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

I would have preferred to avoid the "Umlaut" in file names, even for the sake of downloading etc., but for me it is ok to call it "Hörsne", but please not "Hörnse". I have double checked, it is really "Hörsne". Same with the Gotland-part. Since we have categories and descriptions, I do not consider it mandatory to have the Gotland-part, but I would have preferred to include it. Anyway, both ways are ok with me for both questions.--Bk1 168 (talk) 06:28, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
It is not my upload and I am not defending either "Hoernse" or "Hörnse". I just happened to notice your edit because I keep an eye on the various categories concerning Swedish churches.
BTW: You are doing some good work on the Gotland churches! Commons is still lacking images on some of the more important historic churches both there and in Sweden in general, and in many cases there is only a single exterior image and no images of the interiors. --Hegvald (talk) 13:19, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
Yes images are still missing in many cases, but I am observing that a lot is happening recently with images, for example Rone, Eke, Grötlingbo, Fide etc. And in the German Wikipedia we have articles for almost all Gotland churches. I am considering to write one for Linde, but probably it will happen before I start writing by someone else.--Bk1 168 (talk) 13:25, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
Btw, I think it is a good idea to rename the files in the way the uploader meant it, just swap the "N" and "S".--Bk1 168 (talk) 14:08, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

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 »
