Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2015 is open!Edit

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2015 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear Jcwf,

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.

File:Picoides borealis jcwf1.jpgEdit

Hallo Jcwf heb je enig idee waarom dit plaatje van jou werd verwijderd? Lotje (talk) 14:58, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Eh nee, niet echt, maar ik verbaas me hier over niets. Het was als ik mij goed herinner mijn eigen plaatje. Jcwf (talk) 15:10, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
Waarom vraag je niet om het te undeleten? Lotje (talk) 15:17, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
Ach, er zijn genoeg ander plaatjes van het beestje en het was ook niet zo'n mooi kiekje. Ik had me ook voorgenomen er 'n betere opname van te gaan maken. Ik heb nu een betere kamera en het is hier niet zo ver vandaan, maar er is nooit wat van gekomen. Jcwf (talk) 15:27, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
Okay, fine by me.   Lotje (talk) 15:33, 4 August 2017 (UTC)


Hi LadyofHats. Thank you very much for File:Toxoplasmosis life cycle en.svg. I'd love to change the text and make an Afrikaans version, but when I download the file and open it in inkscape I am unable to change the text and if I open it in notepad I cannot find the text bits either. Am I doing something wrong? Of course I could just delete your text boxes in inkscape and put in my own but I'd rather not mess up your design.

Regards Jcwf (talk) 02:55, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Hello Jcwf the image has text that has been outlined to avoid problems with the scaling of the svg. you best bet is to delete completly that part and rewrite yout text new.. if this is too complicated for you send me an email to and i will email you a version of it without text

'n Koördinaat by die bostaande prent mag die waarde daarvan verbeter, en jy is die enigste wat weet waar dit geneem is. JMK (talk) 06:36, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Ongelukkig weet ek dit ook nie meer nie, JMK. Jcwf (talk) 14:29, 29 May 2019 (UTC)


Jaap, goed om van jou te hoor! Dankie vir die boodskap. Kan jy dalk help met 'n artikel oor geelkoper op die Afr Wiki? Groete! Oesjaar (talk) 06:03, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Stene-afmetings.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Yours sincerely, Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:12, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

@Magog the Ogre:
As you say .. File:Stene-afmetings.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear. .. It would seem that Ogres cannot read. The file was first uploaded at by Morne UNDER PUBLIC DOMAIN. See. And yes, although your upload program tried to stop me from mentioning that at all cost, I did state that on the page. Jcwf (talk) 02:31, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
I can read fine; all uploads must have a license tag, and it should be provided by the uploader. Nonetheless, I saw you are knew and figured out what you meant, so I tagged it for you as a courtesy.[1] But it looks like I accidentally tagged the page as no license after that.
