Augustus C. FrenchEdit

Hello Fishal, I've reverted your over-writing of File:Augustus.C.French.jpg. Your image is a different one of the same person, so better is to upload it to a new file (for example, as Augustus.C.French.2.jpg, or whatever name you choose).

Both images are of the same man, obviously at different points in his life, and both are shown in the image gallery on THIS WEB PAGE. That is to say, the image showing him with a beard is as accurate as the image showing him at an earlier age.

As for which image should appear in the wikipedia article, I would think that the one closest to his age when he was governor would be more appropriate, which is likely the bearded image, but I have no strong opinion, so if you think that the earlier image is better, simply alter the article to point to the image that you prefer.

Hello Fishal, I've moved the 'bearded image' to File:Augustus.C.French.2.jpg and restored the 'beardless image', so it is now the version used by the various 'pedia's. For future similar situations, simply upload the original to a new file name before over-writing, so that images aren't lost ... and I would agree that the version used by the state is the preferable one (which is not to say that any other ones are 'inaccurate', even if the sourcing leaves something to be desired).
Parenthetically, some time ago I replaced a number of stubs of Illinois governors with short articles (including the one on French), and that is when the image was added. These articles are preliminary and incomplete, so anyone who feels ambitious might expand them further. Regards, Notuncurious (talk) 17:58, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Dear Fishal,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth 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 (2015) 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 were 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.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.
