Old masters paintingsEdit

Hello Jan. I am very interested in painting of old masters of Europe. especially I am a fun of portraits. You know how to download images from different auction sites, such as christies, sothebys and others. I constantly watch for updates in your gallery. Thank you for what you do. In this regard, I request to you. Display (upload) at the your gallery regularly or send me on my address high resolution images of the old masters from the sites auctions christies and sothebys. I'll be very grateful for the help.

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 AnnouncementEdit

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open!Edit

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

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 . Click here to learn more and vote »

Natuur12 (talk) 16:18, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

@User:Natuur12, User:Steinsplitter, User:Davey2010. This is going to far. Both the files Steinsplitter is complaining about are in the category Category:Faded color photographs. They are there to be reworked. And of course, Fae is all to happy to throw in a list that displays me as a perpetrator. But if you go through that list you will see it that these are files I uploaded myself, or files that were obviously in error. This decision seems to be driven by hatred. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 16:53, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
I have the feeling that you are trying to play the system, the edit restriction does not allow you to overwrite other users files for reasons mentioned in a very long discussion months ago. --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:06, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
User:Steinsplitter, I mean this. the two files you complain about are in a category Faded photographs. The list Fae added show images of myself, I did not overwrite other users files anymore. Except reverts to a state when chosen as featured, or an erroneous overwrite of a painting with a print. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 17:21, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
A edit restriction applies for a reason. In this case because a significant amount off overwrites were against policy. This also prevents valid overwrites but there is no way to prevent some collateral damage. Since the violations of our policies were structural the community decided to place an edit restriction to protect Commons from further disrupting. This sanction is pretty clear. You are no longer allowed to overwrite files other than your own regardless of the reason. You violated your edit restriction and therefor you are blocked. Not out of hatred but because you refuse to refrain from overwriting files. Using ad hominem to bring others in discredit is distasteful and dishonourable. Natuur12 (talk) 18:13, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
  • You were put on a edit restriction and that restriction applies for a reason, If you disagree with it then I would suggest you log off and find a new hobby otherwise you'll have to live by and abide by the restriction,
Natuur12 was extremely lenient - Had I been the admin I would've blocked you for an entire year,
The ER is extremely simple and isn't hard to grasp but anyway if you ignore this restriction again I would welcome a longer block. –Davey2010Talk 18:43, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

File:Boris Spasski (1956).jpgEdit

I can see you have reverted @Jacek Halicki's edit to this picture earlier today, without providing so much as a reason. It would be common courtesy for you to explain why you are reverting someone else's change, particularly when dealing with a good-faith long-term fellow contributor like Jacek. Thanks, odder (talk) 23:26, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

Jan, honestly. Clouds are not blue and skin is not pink. Regards, Vincent Steenberg (talk) 18:39, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Varnish is yellow, though. I don't force you to use this one. Upload your own and use that. I'm sorry that my respons is so cross. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 20:54, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
