A cup of coffee for you!Edit
|Thanks for having an email conversation with me about the file you uploaded at File:Göring Telegram.jpg. I think you chose the correct copyright statement. This text is older than the life of the author plus 70 years so I agree that it is in the public domain. Good research and good find.|
Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2018 is open!Edit
You are receiving this message because we noticed that you voted in R1 of the 2018 Picture of the Year contest, but not yet in the second round. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2018) 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 the final (and current) round, you may vote for a maximum of three images. The image with the most votes will become the Picture of the Year 2018.
Round 2 will end 17 March 2019, 23:59:59.
