Broken template in File:Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art 1 edit.jpgEdit
Hello Gnosis, it seems that your latest change or upload of File:Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art 1 edit.jpg broke a template. This assumption has been made because the file appeared in the maintenance Category:Language templates with no text displayed. To fix this issue please check this category for further information. If the file is not contained in the maintenance category anymore someone else already did the work and you can ignore this message. Thank you for your cooperation. --ArndBot (talk) 17:52, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Generosity Crowdfunding Campaign for User:The PhotographerEdit
Please excuse me spamming you. As a regular on Feature Picture Candidatess you will recognise User:The Photographer, who has 86 Featured Pictures. His contributions cover the architecture and culture of Brazil and Venezuela. He has basic photographic equipment: an old D300 camera and 35mm lens, and lives in a poor country where photographic equipment is expensive. The Photographer has recently taken several images using the technique where multiple frames are stitched together to create a high-resolution panorama. However, many times frustrated with the stitching errors that result from trying to take such photos without a proper panoramic head for his tripod. This special equipment permits the camera to be rotated around the entrance pupil of the lens, and eliminates such errors. Having a panoramic head would greatly increase the potential for The Photographer to create sharp high-resolution images for Commons. In addition, the purchase of a fisheye lens would enable 180 × 360° panoramas to be taken, which are a great way to explore a scene as though one is really there.
Please see the discussion about the Crowd-funding campaign on User talk:The Photographer#Generosity Crowdfunding Campaign and visit the Generosity Crowd-funding Campaign page to consider donating. Even a modest donation will make a difference if many people contribute. Thanks. -- Colin (talk) 21:11, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
Your vote here did not supply any rationale. You are required at FPC to give a reason for an oppose vote. Not doing so is considered disrespectful towards the nominator and/or creator of the image.
Your vote here is bizarre to the point of being offensive. We typically see oppose votes that make little sense from users who are revenge voting. I could have worded my response better, but your reaction is troubling. Firstly you did not attempt to engage with me on that page or the talk page, but instead went to AN/U to get some admin response. You then failed to ping me on my talk page, which is required as a courtesy when taking someone to AN/U. Further, I suggest you (and Taivo) learn the difference between a "personal attack" and being strongly criticised. You may wish to explain your vote, as it remains a puzzle that any user in good faith could make such a comment. -- Colin (talk) 09:02, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
I have a quite dumb question. Could you please be so kind and give me a short explanation what this page is about? I don't speak any Persian and google translate seems to be very weak on this page: ویکیپدیا:گزیدن نگاره برگزیده/20180109 Vienna State Opera at blue hour 850 9387.jpg
- Hi Granada, it was a nomination for Featured picture in Persian Wikipedia. Your picture was nominated by myself and after the voting, it was promoted to FP (Congrats!) It is scheduled to be featured on the first page of Persian Wikipedia on April 2, 2018. Cheers! --Gnosis (talk) 11:34, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
- درود. متن و اطلاعاتی را افزودم. بهتر است نام نگاره را به Mansour Ghandriz انتقال دهید. نامی که موزه های مهم جهان مثل متروپولیتن از آن استفاده کرده اند. --Gnosis (talk) 20:27, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
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.
