I think that there should be no problem with this pictures' licence. As for the factual source, I mostly used a historical map from Leonid Arbusow's "Grundriss der Geschichte Liv-, Est- und Kurlands", which different editions are from years 1892-1918. However, in the article Livonian War, I can see some factual mistakes derived from books written by historians who probably don't know the actual course of events in Livonia, as they have not read the primary sources. So, I think that those mistakes should be corrected, before one can elect this article as "featured". Athanasius Soter (talk) 10:37, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Hello Grandiose. I don't know what the problem is with that file, I was hoping that in a couple of days the problem would go away, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Do you think you could try to upload the latest version? Maybe it'll work then. If not, I will revert to the previous version. Thanks, tyk (talk) 09:48, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 openEdit
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:
- Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
- This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
- Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).
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. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.
For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.
To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons
Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.
