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)

Islam in Europe MapEdit

Hello, currently Islam in Europe map is pretty outdated and is based on PEW reports dating back to 2007-2010. I updated the map with PEW reports dating to 2014-2016 period, with also making some accompanying changes based on independent reports and censuses, however User:Athenean didn't simply like the idea that the map got darker and reverted every attempt I have made to change the map. So, the map stays as outdated as it is. Thank you for your interest. Have a nice evening. Berkaysnklf (talk), 30 November 2016, 19:56 (UTC)

Well the sources I used mainly comprised of PEW as well, but he didn't seem to accept. I will create a new map instead. An 2016 version. Berkaysnklf (talk), 13 December 2016, 19:36 (UTC)

Thank you as well. And have a nice evening. Berkaysnklf (talk), 13 December 2016, 20:37 (UTC)

Ethnicity mapsEdit

Hi, Jobbo! I'll look around to see if any from 2010 are around, and I'll upload them if I find them! WhisperToMe (talk) 23:02, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

thank you!--Joobo (talk) 14:42, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
Sorry.. I've been kind of busy but I'll get to the maps! I'll do that sometime today or tomorrow! WhisperToMe (talk) 14:57, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

The whole gallery is in this folder. I'm trying to use the flickr2commons tool but I keep getting the error message that the MIME type png doesn't match the jpg filename! I don't know if this means I have to individually download all the files and change their extensions, or if there's another way of getting flickr2commons to get these pics uploaded. WhisperToMe (talk) 13:38, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

All I needed to do was change all the extensions to .png. Now the files are good and mass-upload :) - See my uploads page WhisperToMe (talk) 13:57, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
I think I got all of his images, but it may be possible he miscategorized one or two. Sometime soon I'll search his Flickr to see if there are some he forgot to categorize. I notice Houston wasn't among the list of files I uploaded so I'll check it out WhisperToMe (talk) 02:02, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Got File:Race and ethnicity 2010- Washington, DC (5559893527).png and File:Race_and_ethnicity_2010-_Chicago_(5560488484).png - Hope they help! WhisperToMe (talk) 13:37, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2016 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear Joobo,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2016 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eleventh 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 (2016) 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 1475 candidate images. There are 58 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 20 April 2017, 23:59:59 UTC.
