« Wemmick's Castle »Edit
Thanks for the information. You're absolutely right. The best thing is to remove the file from Commons. It's not all that important, since it's not a genuine illustration. Personally, I'm deleting from the article Les Grandes Espérances. Best wishes, Robert Ferrieux
Picture of the Year 2013 R1 AnnouncementEdit
Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open!Edit
- ⧼Wikibase-terms/Clindberg⧽: العربية, български, Deutsch, English, français, italiano, македонски, മലയാളം, 日本語, русский, svenska, اردو, 中文
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 .

Hopefully you took my comment in the spirit it was meant, as a 'teasing' joke. What you said was quite apt, just a bit of a 'wall of text'... I try to keep things friendly.. the OP's comment was rather not, so a bit of a digression seemed in order. Revent (talk)
- Oh, no offense taken ;-) That's hardly my worst example of a stream-of-consciousness wall of text reply on here either... I have some pretty long ones sometimes ;-)
this got archived within hours. :-( Missed it?
PD Austria 1932Edit
Could you take a look at Commons:Undeletion requests/Archive#File:Marvel's Avengers Battle for Earth.jpg direct image link? I think it's PD-textlogo. But if EugeneZelenko, De728631 and Yann are right when they say it's not, I think it'll be a good example for COM:TOO of something that is over the US TOO. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 21:18, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
- Updated the link.. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 15:40, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
- @Alexis Jazz: While that is mostly 3-D text, and some geometrical shapes, and shading... not sure I have seen something quite that elaborate ruled uncopyrightable by the U.S. Copyright Office. The closest I can find at the review board rulings is the Blackberry logo, which has some shading but not to the extent in that Avengers logo. The latter is not one simple gradient, and there are a number of elements which could as a whole end up with a selection and arrangement copyright (though barely, if so). While not impossible that it's below the threshold, I would probably side on precautionary deletion for now. We have a wealth of examples from the Copyright Office (which has, very occasionally, been overruled by courts), so I would definitely not recommend using something as an example which exceeds the type of work we see from the Copyright Office directly. We should probably stick with just those as U.S. examples, rather than Commons deletion decisions, since we have quite a number of them. Carl Lindberg (talk) 16:03, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
- Thanks. COM:TOO does list enough examples of what is OK, but a few more cases (preferably edge cases) of what is not okay would be helpful. But I agree it's best to stick to official rulings whenever possible. Btw, the text isn't really 3D, is it? Dropshadows don't equal 3D. It is made to look like it has depth, but unlike the Minecraft logo, you couldn't view this from any other angle. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 17:35, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
- There is a small 3-D effect there to me, but there are examples of 3-D lettering still being ruled uncopyrightable by the office, so that alone isn't enough to me. There are a couple of examples in the appeals of works which were decided to be copyrightable, but (naturally) we can't host those so they are harder to use as an example :-) But look at the ruling of the Car Credit City logo; that source has an example which *was* ruled copyrightable.
