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.

Magog the Ogre, I've updated it now with an old template (OpenStreetMap) that I replaced with Infobox. The problem with the old one was that it didn't render "other_versions" parameter correctly. The unintended consequence was that the licensing info got lost. So the description will for now have two templates, which is not ideal since they have mostly duplicated fields - and I've also posted on the template's talk page asking for help with fixing it. Cherkash (talk) 09:05, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
It's fine. We just need a license on the page. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:10, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

File:Visa requirements for Russian citizens.svg and File:Visa requirements for Russian citizens-svg.svgEdit

Hello.

File:Visa requirements for Russian citizens.svg was created from File:Visa requirements for Russian citizens-svg.svg to which it is almost identical and has not been updated since last year and is superfluous in itself. Could you either request its deletion or redirection to File:Visa requirements for Russian citizens-svg.svg?

Thank you.

Political Formula 1 mapEdit

Hi! This map seems a bit suspicious, when looked at closely. And the later maps in the list also seem to contain these details. You are marking Crimea as part of Russia, yet not mapping Kosovo at all. I would guess the logic would be the other way around, as recognition by UN and/or large parts of the UN member state community seem more official. Your logic for not doing so? All the best.—Paracel63 (talk) 02:25, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

This map shows de facto status of the territories at the time. This map is a simple illustration adequate to the subject (F1) and does not make any political statements. There would be no difference between Serbia and Kosovo in the coloring, since both territories never hosted an F1 Grand Prix. Cherkash (talk) 14:50, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Изменение цветовой схемы на карте ЕАЭСEdit

Ув. Cherkash, недавно Вы загрузили новую версию файла Eurasian_Economic_Union.svg, в которой значительно поменяли цветовую схему. Дабы не быть обвиненным в вандализме, прошу Вас в подобных случаях проявлять элементарную норму вежливости и уважения к чужому труду и обновлять легенды на страницах Википроектов где используются данные изображения (особенно такие популярные).

Don't OVERWRITEEdit

Thank you that you try to improve the  File:BlankMap-World.svg but you are making some mistakes. You are free to change its style or etc, but don't add to this map such controversial content like "occupied or annexed territories". The original file was uploaded let's say in "UN recognized borders" and per COM:OVERWRITE rule you must respect that. --Ⴂ. ႡႠႪႠႾႠႻႤ 16:58, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

You are mistaken in at least two ways:
1) The territories are present there as options, authors of other more specific maps derived from this are free to use them or ignore them. (In general, this map is not a final product in any way, it's a "blank map" to be colored as the users please.)
2) These territories have been added as an option quite a while ago. Certainly not by me, and certainly it has been discussed elsewhere. So you are not to be making any decisions related to withholding such information from the map. The more optional elements such a "blank" map contains the easier it is for other people to create derivative products – which is the whole purpose of this map in the first place.
And finally, although it's just a side note: I haven't seen you among any of the original authors of this map. So I'm not quite sure why you are trying to advocate things which you haven't been part of making decisions about over the years. If you are trying to push a point about any particular territory you don't like to be included, then make your case clearly – instead of trying to invoke something like OVERWRITE that is not really applicable here. Cherkash (talk) 21:29, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

File:BlankMap-World.svgEdit

Hi Cherkash. Thanks for updates and the improvements on the blank map of the world. I noticed you reverted the svg code to the scheme whereby unrecognized territories are inside their "parent country" <g> tag. I removed them in a previous version because grouping the territories inside the countries leads to problems when applying styles that should only apply for recognized countries.

In particular, when using this map, I've often applied opacity:1; to all countries that I want to color, so that it automatically displays the circle around small countries. Unfortunately, it also makes the unrecognized countries visible.

I refer you to this version of the file that I uploaded to see the scheme I used instead. χ (talk) 22:28, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

@Χ: The problem with separating the unrecognized territories out of their parents <g> groups is that they become colored completely separately, and this may introduce mis-representation issues outside of the scope of simple countries coloring. What you used to achieve with your opacity:1; hack mentioned above, is as easily achievable if you separate in the CSS a group of small countries being colored – and only apply the opacity:1 attribute to them. This also makes it an extra clean indication that you are indeed trying to color some small circles, and not all.
Also, since your argument that "Unfortunately, it also makes the unrecognized countries visible" hints at your default choice of having them colored along with their "parent" countries – so having them grouped with their parent countries in the same <g> tag achieves this automatically just by coloring the parent country. Cherkash (talk) 23:29, 13 March 2019 (UTC)
What do you mean by misreprentation issues? Unrecognized countries are not shown by default and their parent countries cover the whole territories anyway. Therefore, the styles applied to the parent countries should not automatically cascade to the unrecognized territories. Rather, unrecognized countries should only receive styles explicitly assigned to them, or remain entirely invisible. χ (talk) 13:08, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
@Χ: The unrecognized territories actually do show by default, just with a thinner border around them. And coloring of the parent countries retains this styling: i.e. the whole parent country's territory gets colored, with the thin border around the unrecognized territory/ies remaining visible. Cherkash (talk) 03:15, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
I refer you back to the version I linked earlier. In the scheme I used, the limited recognition countries are not visible at all unless explicitly set so. Have a look at Northern Cyprus in the code for example. This scheme is more practical and less controversial in my opinion. It would be beneficial to have your updates and improvements merged with this scheme. I'm happy to participate in this, but I'd rather we discuss it first so we reach a consensus :) χ (talk) 10:11, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
@Χ: Please keep in mind that there are countries/territories within this list with quite varying degrees of recognition (e.g. Taiwan and Kosovo are also in this category). So instead of making a judgement call on what should/shouldn't be shown with separate borders, it seems prudent to have some indication of all these territories on the map (instead of hiding them by default) by having thin borders around them – while still grouping them with their parent countries for the purpose of default coloring (i.e. unless someone wants to emphasize the distinction between e.g. mainland China and Taiwan, or Serbia and Kosovo). So like I mentioned above, this achieves the ease of coloring whole countries that you were looking for, while still preserving thin visible borders around these unrecognized territories. I honestly think this is a good compromise that has been achieved quite a while back – and to me it makes sense to preserve it like this. Cherkash (talk) 11:14, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

   This is your last warning. The next time you vandalize a page, you will be blocked from editing Commons.

Stop editwarring. --Yann (talk) 05:16, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

I am not a name fan of Cherkash. But Yann must understand that edit warring is not vandalism. Moreover, IMHO templating a Commons regular with {{Test4}} shows an utter disrespect for the Commons community. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:44, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Dear Yann, there is no reason to be rude. There is also no reason to be using the words such as "last warning" when it's also the first warning you issue. If you feel some behavior is unwarranted, feel free to discuss it politely – i.e. engage in a civil discussion, not just dole out "last warnings" left and right as if you are the boss and others are clueless underlings who don't know what they are doing. Let me kindly remind you that Wiki is a collective effort of many editors working together with a good will and mutual respect (at least this is one of the project's intentions), so please try to be mindful of this and try to show respect to other editors and contributors. Peace.
Thank you Incnis Mrsi for bringing common sense to this. It's really appreciated.
As for the essence of the complaint that may have forced Yann's hand (although Yann's reaction has not been expressed in the best form possible) – the reason I personally haven't opened a discussion on the relevant Talk page is because I mostly wrote out all the comments in the edit summaries. But I've now put it all succinctly on the relevant Talk page. So this hopefully will prove a more productive forum/method to discuss the issue that led to the earlier back-and-forth reverts. Cherkash (talk) 22:44, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
FYI, it can be at the same time, the first and the last warning.
Incnis Mrsi was recently blocked for harassment, so better to disregard his message above.
Now, I am trying to understand the issue. Please give your opinion on COM:AN. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:40, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
