WLE KONKURSSEdit

Tere. Miks ja mille alusel sa osad pildid WLE konkursilt välja praakisid? Ma saan aru, et kui foto pole seotud ühegi loetletud objektiga, siis see ei sobiks, kuid kaitsealale omane liik on minu arvates igati asjakohane. Tegemist ei ole ju maastikufotode konkursiga, või on? --MinuHiiumaa (talk) 10:42, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

@MinuHiiumaa:. Tegelikult on see paraku ikka natuke maastikufotode konkurss küll. Kui mingi liik leidud tõesti vaid paaris kohas Eestis (nt saaremaa robirohi), siis selle puhul võib ju erandi teha, aga muidu nimetatu ikka suurt antud konkursile ei sobi. Kui näiteks HELP pildikogumisele sobib kõik loodusega seotu, siis siin oodatakse otseselt nimekirja kantud kaitseobjektidega seotud fotosid. Iseäranis just maastikufotosid, mis antud objekti võimalikult iseloomulikust küljest kirjeldavad.
Täpsemalt küll ei praakunud ma välja "osasid pilte", vaid ühe kolmest. Ja ega need ülejäänud kaks ka paraku konkursi ootustega väga kokku ei käi.
On tõsi, et eelmine aasta said ka rahvusvahelisse finaali mitmed loomafotod, aga sellel teemal oli pärast palju kisa, et kuidas kohalikud korraldajad sellist asja lubasid. Kruusamägi (talk) 18:20, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
nojah, aga natukene imelik on ikka, kui ühe taimefoto võtad välja, aga teine jääb sisse. Puu on ka taim?! Kui suur peab olema taim, et sellest tehtud pilt saaks osaleda?
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dactylorhiza_baltica_1.jpg - see sobib, 
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Epipactis_palustris_1_Estonia.jpg - see ei sobi?

Kaitsealasid moodustataksegi seal paiknevate kaitsealuste liikide kaitseks, seega kõik kaitsealal jäädvustatud kaitsealused liigud on sellele kaitsealale iseloomulikud. Või kui juba välja jätta midagi, siis tuleks kõikidesse piltidesse samamoodi suhtuda. Mitte nii, et üks jääb välja ja teine... on hea küll, las see jääb.--MinuHiiumaa (talk) 21:40, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Neid pilte peakski sealt veel vähemaks võtma. Selles on sul õigus.
Puude puhul on muidugi ka see, et mõned suuremad ja vanemad isendid neist võivad olla arvatud eraldiseisvateks kaitsealusteks objektideks. Nt üks 300-aastane puu on võrdlemisi püsiv isend.
Kaitsealade moodustamise puhul võib sageli tõesti (üheks) põhjuseks olla mõni konkreetne seal esindatud liik, aga väga harva on see liik nõnda haruldane, et seda ei esine paljudel teistel (kaitse)aladel. Kruusamägi (talk) 06:17, 5 June 2016 (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)

Re: File tagging File:Virmalised 18.03.15 (4).jpgEdit

I don't want to fill up KristianPikner's user talk page any further, so I have decided to post here. It is a perfectly ordinary procedure when images have been previously posted online to request that the uploader establish his identity via OTRS. I'm sorry you've somehow misinterpreted this as hostile or bitey when I would have expected that as an OTRS member you would have recognized this as quite usual and commonplace. --Rrburke (talk) 12:53, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

That user wrote me an e-mail, that he doesn't understand what weird templates were added next to the images he uploaded. So it's not just my interpretation. This "ordinary procedure" is frightening to new users and when I'm organizing a picture collecting camping, then this is absolutely the last thing I want to see happening to the new users. As I have indicated, this user is the author of those images. Kruusamägi (talk) 13:01, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Some holiday joyEdit

Since 1959, it is a Swedish tradition to (at 3 pm) watch Donald Duck and other Disney cartoons on TV. The most appreciated part is about Donald as bird photographer in Clown of the Jungle. I think most users at FPC can relate to the frustrated Donald (especially the parrot scene), which is why I'm sharing it with you. Happy Holiday!   --cart-Talk 15:17, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Good evening Kruusamägi,Edit

Thank you for your comment on my photo. The bench is in my view perfectly horizontal.
But because it more more than one inlets, the horizon is difficult to estimate.
Sincerely,
--Famberhorst (talk) 16:57, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

@Famberhorst: For me the bench, horizon and reflections all seem to indicate that this image is slightly tilted. But the image itself is superb. Kruusamägi (talk) 17:37, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
@Kruusamägi: Thank you for your prompt response. I think it is better not much to change the picture because then everyone should ping.
A Happy New Year wished.

Ella MätikEdit

Hi ! I'm wondering why you cancelled this edit ? I just added the category of the artist, how is that a problem ? Thanks ! Léna (talk) 12:37, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, I wondered if I'd need to explain that. I've gotten bunch of high quality tif-files from Tartu Art Museum (category) and I'd like to keep them separate from their altered versions. So I plan to give the modifications necessary categories and exposure, but keep the museum images as an archive versions. Categorizing those tif-versions, when there are already more suitable versions available, would not be a good idea in my opinion (like adding tif-files to articles should better be avoided, but it's hard to avoid that from happening, when those images would start to roam freely in Commons and not stay in their designate location). + it could really mess up the statistics. Kruusamägi (talk) 15:36, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
Hm, you don't know a priori which files in Commons will be useful or not. Sure, for Wikipedia articles, it is better to use .jpg files. But for someone who would want to print a book abou Ella Mätik, the tif files will be very precious. So, these files should have the same visibility. We can also create one category per artwork, and link these categories to wikidata items. About the statistics, it is a tool issue : you should be able to add a filter that excludes tif :) Léna (talk) 08:57, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
I would say the images are pretty well linked at a moment and there should be no reason for a person not to notice the tif-versions.
The categories themselves are somewhat in disarray as always. Some artists have lot of very bad-quality stuff in them. So it's an attempt to keep them more tidy.
All sorts of possibilities could be there for the future. What categories are reasonable and what are not is a matter of debate anyway. Kruusamägi (talk) 11:17, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

you write, that Jaan Künnap took this photo and many other that you uploaded. Are YOU Jaan Künnap? If no, we need a written permission by himself. You are as me OTRS/Support team-member, so you know what to do? Kind regards, Emha (talk) 09:07, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

@Emha: If you take a look into those image pages, then you may notice that nearly all of them have OTRS tags with permissions. As I'm in a middle of uploading the last set of images I got from him, then of-course I haven't yet sent anything to OTRS about that last few images, as I'm yet working on getting the images up first. Try finding them online and you may understand, that I got images directly from the author, to whom I happen to have a long-standing cooperation of that kind of image donations. And as I'm also an OTRS agent like you, then I know pretty well about this permissions-stuff. So please do not bother me with this. Kruusamägi (talk) 13:34, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
Well Kruusamägi , I found a file from 14. Mar 2017 without a permission and did a check in the named category and found a few without permission. That was the reason for asking you. I don't think that it's neccesary to be unfriedly as I feel you are answering to me. Why don't you use {{OTRS pending}} which is made exactly for cases like these? I like it a lot that you upload these file from a photographer and we stand on the same side! But I don't have the second sight. Kind regards, --Emha (talk) 14:40, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

HiEdit

I am not sure if you received my reply last Sunday. Basically, I told you about Dominiquer Stroobant who speaks fluently four languages and comes from a family rooted in the academia. And I asked you the permission to send an email to the SNS in Italy. one of the best small University in the world, they can provide the best partnership as a hub for the Italian competition, as we discussed by email in February 2016. I can write to them putting you in CC, you won't understand the mail in italian but you will be informed.

If you need any translation in German, italian or French, fell free to ask. If you need I can bring you some bilingual contact working in Germany as jurors, but they are at a simple post-doc level.--Alexmar983 (talk) 04:38, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

Everything is smooth with my alma mater. The main things we need to "decide" are the prizes. Most of the websites of 2015 are in languages I don't speak. Can you give me some idea of the possible prizes? They could offer money, or some cultural products but the sooner we have an idea, the better it is.--Alexmar983 (talk) 10:02, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
In Estonia, I have usually had some Nikon equipment for the winner (i.e. "Estonian science photographer of the year"). Like in 2011 I got this, but it has varied a lot on how much they have been ready to support this competition.
Then there has been yearly subscriptions of various magazines (Eesti Loodus, Horisont, Akadeemia, Imeline Teadus) as special prizes. I would consider this useful already from the perspective of promotion of this event.
I've also asked and gotten sponsorship from one Estonian mapmaker Regio (me giving out that prize in 2015) and from University of Tartu Press (books, obviously).
Some years I also asked sponsorship from student councils of major Estonian universities (for special prizes to the best university student from that university).
Special prizes in 2015 and in 2013. Kruusamägi (talk) 15:35, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
Thanks.--Alexmar983 (talk) 02:24, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Fast update, I have probably another juror from South Korea (an experienced post doc, not a P.I.) and I discussed in the meta talk of User:Doc James about a support from the med group. If we can add "medical images" as a category we can get better support and at least some good international jurors. We can call the category "biology and medicine" to be more generic. The med group is very active around the world, as far as I remember. So far I have also enough chemists, I have another Italian professor that we can move to the international jury if necessary. Still looking for physicists, I can ask a contact at CERN (not sure about the success).--Alexmar983 (talk) 12:29, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

As there are already 5 distinct categories, then I'm not overly enthusiastic with adding anything extra. It would be like opening the Pandora's box. Pathology related and other similar images can be added under microscopy category, images about medical scientists would be greatly anticipated under the category 'people in science', sets of medical images suit well under the set category and all of the rest will fit fine into general category. And all of the local competitions can add random number of additional special prizes in whatever topics.
But getting some medical people into it would be really great. Maybe some of them would also be interested to organize the local competition in their homeland? And as mentioned, local competition do have right to add additional categories. And we have also had some medicine-related images in the past, so it is reasonable to assume there would be some of them in 2017 as well.
Kruusamägi (talk) 20:15, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes, they can do that, they can use existing categories. In my experience so far, it is however more difficult to find some type of jurors with these five categories, for example a PI in the field of ecology and energy optimization was not convinced few weeks ago. I hope that from the experience of national competitions we can gather enough expertise. I am curious to see the upload this year if it is balanced or not.--Alexmar983 (talk) 04:57, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi! Any news from the website? Is it officially ready? I should send a summary mail soon for the Italian jury. Unfortunately, my contact in South Korea comes back to Italy right before the start of the competition. What a bad luck! But we can move some jurors from the National to the International competition if their profile is good enough. Did you find any other jurors? Should I keep asking around? I can contact single user here and there if it is ok with you.--Alexmar983 (talk) 11:22, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Website is ready enough.
If you have some suitable jurors for the final, then who not. Let's put them on that jury.
Kruusamägi (talk) 11:42, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
Yesterday I sent a mail with the contacts of the two jurors who confirmed for the international jury. Check your spam folder. You will receive a secondo email about the Italian jury and its pool of candidates, as soon as they have replied to me, I will ping you in other request here and there in some wiki project, let's see if we can find someone else. --Alexmar983 (talk) 08:31, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, I saw it. I haven't yet gotten so far to write an answer. Short reply: the more jurors there would be, the better (some may fall away at some point + there should a additional jury to select winners from countries where there is no jury). UK chapter is now also thinking about organizing the local competition, but the thing they are most worried about is the part of setting together local jury. So some spares judges for local juries might also be useful. Kruusamägi (talk) 13:57, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
ok.--Alexmar983 (talk) 02:53, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

VärviribadEdit

Kas need värviribadega pildid on Commonsis ikka eraldi vajalikud? Kui nelinurkse teose taustalt välja lõikad ja JPG-na üles laadid, siis kas samahästi ei võiks kohe TIFF-i kvaliteedikaota kärpida ja hoopis selle Commonsisse laadida? (MediaWiki nähtavasti teisendab TIFF-i puhul pisipildid (ja muud ümber mastaabitud versioonid) niikuinii JPG-ks.) 62.65.58.165 09:07, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Eks need värviribad näita, et millised oleksid korrektsed värvid.
Tavakasutajal pole tif-iga suurt midagi peale hakata ja Commons ei suuda seda nüüd nii hästi ka kuvada. Seega sai see nii jaotatud, et üles läheb nii algne tif kui ka eksponeeritav jpg. Kruusamägi (talk) 17:55, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
Kuigi jah, see teema on tõesti vaieldav. Ma ei ole isegi kindel, et praegu tehtav mingi ideaalvariant on, aga pärast mõningast juurdlemist tundus see eri valikutest parim võimalik. Kruusamägi (talk) 19:08, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Details about the competitionEdit

Hi, if you saw my email I have found the 3rd. 4th and 5th solid candidate for the main international jury.

Now, I stop looking for candidates (maybe I'll receive some late reply, but I am not sending more mails or messages).

I'd like to know if the jury tool we are going to use is very similar, as I expect, to the tool used for WLM. If so, that means I should ask my contact to create a Wikimedia account, right?

Let me know, so I can inform them with calm before November. Basically, they will use their professional mailing list of their field to promote the event, I prefer they know how to register and log in so if necessary, they can explain to other people. Bye!--Alexmar983 (talk) 06:18, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for that!
Creating a Wikimedia account might indeed be nice. Will they use it, I'm not so sure yet, but at least this process is very simple and that might indeed be useful, if they can explain it to other people if needed.
I'll try to get the competition webpage updated about the jury.
I'm not sure yet on what exact jury tool should we use, but there is still time until January, when the jury should start its work. Kruusamägi (talk) 14:48, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
Roger... but let me understand this passage: Do I have to ask the WMF people to prepare jury tool for "my" national jury? because they start before January, right? In any case I know the WLM tool, it is perfect for the national juries with no subdomains and I guess if you have the right common categories for those subdomains (e.g. "Photo Competition 2017 - People in Science"), it can be used too. Do you want or need me to put you directly in contact with those developers? I have to find some mails from the past, it might take some minutes.
Such tool requires also a "sysop", someone that inform people that a step is going to start and allow it to start, and set the date and hours deadline of the different voting steps (yes/no, 1 to 5, final ranking), closing them, set the threshold of the different steps (the first n pictures, all pictures with average vote at least 3/5) if I remember correctly.
Good night!--Alexmar983 (talk) 15:50, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
There are several tools (example) and we'll need to test them at some point. In the past there have been multiple problems with jury tools and so I'm not sure on what exactly should we use (I haven't organized WLM for some time, so I don't know to current state of jury tools).
There will be a country based division like last time and category based subdivisions so it is pretty easy to sort the stuff. But as long as the number of images in below 500 there may not even be a need to use the jury tool.
And when to use the jury tool, it might be useful to at first let someone sort out the images that have no chance of winning. Kruusamägi (talk) 16:06, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
Last time that kind of pages were also made for the jury. Kruusamägi (talk) 16:21, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
"sort out the images that have no chance of winning" is the first phase of the WLM Jury tool. I have used and it's perfect for that. In any case I prefer to offer the jurors a simple tool even for 500 images. We used last year for the images for Tuscany of WLM and they were 400, it was quite appropriate. In that case if we are autonomous, I would contact the developers in WLM and use the WLM tool for the national level.--Alexmar983 (talk) 02:20, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Linnaarhiivi pildidEdit

Kas Tallinna linnaarhiivi kogust pärit piltide autoriõigusi puudutav on läbi räägitud? Näiteks Nyländeri, Parikase või Vannase autoriõiguse kehtivus pole lõppenud. Kas on alust arvata, et nende erafotograafide varalised õigused kuuluvad linnaarhiivile? Kui mõni uuem pilt on üles võetud linna või linnaarhiivi jaoks teenistuskohustuste täitmisel või linnarhiiv usub mingil muul põhjusel, et tema teostab autoriõigusi, siis kas on oodata sellekohaseid lubasid? Kui sellega läheb rohkem aega, siis võiks üleslaadija kasutada malli {{OTRS pending}}. 90.191.76.154 13:52, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Jah, linnarhiiv teostab autoriõigusi ja on andnud loa pildid avalikustada. Või vähemalt nii on mulle väidetud. Konkreetset luba veel kuskil kirjalikult fikseeritud pole... vaatan esialgu, et palju neid pilte üles tuleb. Sealt peaks veel lisa saabuma. Kruusamägi (talk) 12:05, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
Näiteks kui selle pildi päritolu kohta pole teada rohkem kui Fotises öeldud: see võeti lihtsalt 1936. aastal vanade piltide albumisse ja autor on teadmata, siis on arusaamatu, mis alusel saanuks autoriõigused linnale või linnaarhiivile kanduda. Seetõttu ma kahtlustan, et linnarhiivis ei tehta päris hästi vahet füüsilisel kujul fotode omandiõigusel (ei anna õigust avaldamiseks mis tahes tingimustel) ja fotode autoriõigusel. Sarnaselt väikse segadusega seoses muis.ee piltidega. (Oop ennist pahandas selle üle näiteks siin. Nüüd lõpuks on muis.ee oma autoriõiguse lehte õnneks kohendanud.)
Ma arvan, et mõistlik on need asjad enne üleslaadimist selgeks teha. Selle asemel, et lasta osal tööst luhta minna, kui hulk pilte tuleb hiljem kustutada. 90.191.76.154 08:06, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Squared logo for WSCEdit

Hi! I write here because I have to cite this in future discussion, probably. I am trying to rationalize the main page infobox for the future. Long story short, maybe a squared logo for WSC of the same size of WLM and WLE could help. I was thinking to rotate the helix of 45 degrees, make it shorter. Is there a problem, in your opinion?--Alexmar983 (talk) 04:44, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

I'd really like to keep the logo as it is.
And on this page I put the images to a subpage so new images could be added without breaking the translation part. Kruusamägi (talk) 12:40, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
Should you update also the translation tags? What about the "week" word? And should we do it also for the press and blogs section? In any case, about the logo, it is just for situation where a squared version is needed. Alternative versions of logos exists also for WLM, I dont think it "pollutes" the visual experience but fine, I'll do my best with that.--Alexmar983 (talk) 14:27, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
I'd just leave that "week" there. Outdated translation is a lot worse and the main reason why I scrapped the idea of having WSC main landing page in Commons.
With the logo, I'd increase the size of text so that it would be on 2 lines and base the squared version on that. Changing the icon itself would be a very bad practice and would go against all sorts of best practices. Kruusamägi (talk) 14:37, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
the landing page on commons was necessary because this is a mutllingual platform, in the end. It started as an indexing page, but in the end an external website in English cannot fulfill all the needs. WLM has both, so we have to accept this scenario.
A rotation of 45 degrees is a little below the actual change of an icon, IMHO, but fine. let's find a compromise for a squared logo. Like put "WIKI SCIENCE" above and "COMPETITION" below.--Alexmar983 (talk) 14:58, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
Tell me when you have it. I mean it's not urgent but I really hope to propose something for the infobox on the main page.--Alexmar983 (talk) 15:21, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

End of promotion campaignEdit

Look, since I am here (and yahoo is stucked, damned Chinese internet), few information. We are at -6 days so the information campaign basically ends.

I have no idea if they will help us with the sitenotice, I hope they will, we will focus on Africa later, which is doing already quite good IMHO. I have informed few Africans here and there but mostly by chance, I will check few more messages in talk with South African and ar-N users probably later. Starting from few days ago I have however informed one by one many people. Of course they could have been thousands, but I reduced to mostly people from few target countries (zero uploads, terrible uploads), with a limited English knowledge (not all of them , but if they can survive here I said fair enough). users with email or active, or in general competent users with good images hoping to get some decent finalists in certain areas. Like I did with part of the competitors of 2015 in Europe I stop now, there is no point in informing someone too late. In 2019 if there is no improvement on the sitenotice front, we will do like WLM or WLE and start in advance. But I mostly wanted the competition to be useful so I also focused on dormient users that never took part in the previous years. in 2019 however we will have a good starting world base and we can use that directly, we'll see.

I don't expect miracles so late, a key difference will probably come from the email campaign, which showed good output in Indonesia and Africa but not in China. let's cross the finger, although i would have avoided to go this way, but let's take the good out of the situation. if we can get at least a dozens of contacts ready for 2019 too, that's good!--Alexmar983 (talk) 15:29, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Badly-run Wiki Science CompetitionEdit

It appears Ivo that you may the one of the organizers. Apologies if you are not. Why would one of your colleages notify me about the competition after the UK deadline has passed? Why advertise a competition that claims to be World-wide yet excludes the UK. This looks like cheap advertising for Estonia's institutions. Charles (talk) 10:47, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

@Charlesjsharp: For months I talked with UK chapter. They decided they don't have resources to run it in the UK. And as we could not get a banner to the UK, then promoting it there is virtually impossible. I still opened upload form for the UK nevertheless and now you are pissed off about exactly what? Kruusamägi (talk) 12:28, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

UCLouvain participationEdit

Hi Yvo, I'm looking at what modifications you did on UCL_Culture's upload. It seems that you removed the wiki science competition tag each time... Why is that so ? I thought you said we could participate ? Also, I tried to contact you by mail to change the autor of those pictures, is it possible ? Thanks; Ogoletti (talk) 15:07, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

I am confused nowEdit

Why conflicted here... but I though this images because of its date was to be put under the Greek category. In the end even if they have no chance, they are worth to be put in the statistics...--Alexmar983 (talk) 03:38, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

When the image is that bad, then I don't want it to part of statistics. Kruusamägi (talk) 03:40, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
I will create "unsuitable images" categories. So there will be a honest statistics in the end. Keeping track of bad things is important IMHO. Of course it's not my priority now but I will fix it soon as I can, as I am also writing in the procedural draft. If we want create something that works in the future, than the only way is a workflow that tries to keep tracks of these things. I mean, it is not the end of the word of course if one slips away but I was taking care in a more precise way, and it's the same cost in the end.--Alexmar983 (talk) 05:08, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

Double categorizationEdit

see this edit. I was keeping it to remove all of them at the very end, otherwise the stats are all confused since I did not start this way (I did not have the time). Than I would have removed it in the final revision. But ok, let's remove it now. the problem is that keeping them in the general I had a very clear sum of all uploaded files. Now all it's going to be scattered in a lot of national sub-sub-categories. The core point of a statistics is to be consistent. gosh , we really need to write this down clearly next time, I am ret-conning everything but I am also busy on many other sides.--Alexmar983 (talk) 07:07, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

here is the problem, to remove the double catgeorization, you must remove the tag... the tag should not be removed, it's a pity. You should keep such information. I am sure there are elegants way to keep information instead up sweeping under the carpet... --Alexmar983 (talk) 07:20, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
There was already some mess, so it didn't bother me that much. Like the number of images don't add up to the same number at all.
It should also be checked that images don't have two competition categories next to them (I have found few). Or any other unsuitable categorization. Kruusamägi (talk) 07:26, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
I wrote some proposal by emails. this is not stricly necessary for the "finalists" but I have to fix this, plus how to list image sets (see Image sets from Wiki Science Competition 2017 in the United States), plus people are giving "winners" instead of "finalists" so i must create a better standard pages for both, and so on. This is one fo the problem to fix or I will buried in details in the week end... and I need to work too...--Alexmar983 (talk) 08:08, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments France 2019Edit

Bonjour,

Le concours Wiki Loves Monuments France est de retour et ouvert jusqu'à 31 septembre ! Déjà 8314 photos ont été importés cette année, vous aussi rejoignez le concours !

Le concours concerne tous les monuments présents dans la base Mérimée (qu'ils soient classés, inscrits ou simplement classés). De l'imposant château aux ruines industrielles, de la chapelle au coin de la rue aux mégalithes en forêt, c'est un impressionnant patrimoine qui attend d'être photographié et documenté. Où que vous soyez il y a des monuments autour de chez vous. Enfin, vous pouvez mettre en ligne autant de photos que vous le souhaitez de ces monuments. Pour information, le règlement est disponible sur le site du concours. Nous attendons vos photos avec impatience !

Les plus belles photos seront sélectionnées par un jury national composé d'amateurs et de professionnels, de contributeurs à Wikimedia Commons et d'acteurs du patrimoine. Un jury international sélectionnera ensuite des meilleures photographies mondiales.

Si vous avez des questions, l'équipe organisatrice se fera un plaisir d'y répondre.

P.S. : vous recevez ce message parce que vous avez participé au concours Wiki Loves Monuments en France les années précédentes. Si vous avez déjà ou si ne pouvez pas participer au concours cette année, faites passer le message autour de vous pour que de nouveaux et nouvelles photographes rejoignent l'aventure !

Bonne journée,

Sarah Krichen WMFr et Nicolas Vigneron, pour l'équipe de Wiki Loves Monuments France, 14:51, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

Wiki Loves ScienceEdit

I'm curious if or when the next Wiki Loves Science campaign might happen. The Structured Data on Commons development team is looking at the different campaigns that take place on Commons to see how they might be able to help out in organizing file information in the UploadWizard the next time the campaign runs. Will there be another Wiki Loves Science, and if so do you think there is interest in structured data? Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:44, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

@Keegan (WMF): Next Wiki Science Competition (WSC) will take place in this November.
I'm not sure about the structured data part, as those images are exceptionally hard for this compared to files from WLM and such. And I'd like to see upload form to become simpler to use and not the opposite.
But feel to inform me about your plans. Kruusamägi (talk) 22:33, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
Understandable position for WSC. The technical documents for SDC in campaigns are available if that helps. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16:56, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

WLS 2017Edit

Dear Kruusamägi, I won the first prize of WLS France in two categories in 2017, and was informed of the results only last week, by email, by Sarah Krichen WMFr. Looking back in the archives of my talk page, and in my mail box, I have never received any notification concerning the votes of this challenge. As it seems there are prizes awarded, I wonder how I can get them today, if it's not too late. There are so many participants in those challenges, I really thought my pictures were lost in the crowd. Sarah told me you were among the people in charge of this past challenge, then I would like to understand what happened and what to do. Best regards -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:28, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

@Basile Morin: Last time I was organizing the international competition. Just to allow people from France to participate in it, there was also opened a possibility to upload images from France but there was no official local competition as there was no local organizer. So the "winners" there were just the authors of images selected to be in the final. Because of that, there were no local awards. This time Wikimedia France will organize local competition and because of there there would also be prizes. Kruusamägi (talk) 13:16, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
I see. No worry. Thanks, Kruusamägi, for the clarification. I may participate this year again (more for fun). Thanks for having allowed us to participate last time -- Basile Morin (talk) 14:07, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Important message for file moversEdit

A community discussion has been closed where the consensus was to grant all file movers the suppressredirect user right. This will allow file movers to not leave behind a redirect when moving files and instead automatically have the original file name deleted. Policy never requires you to suppress the redirect, suppression of redirects is entirely optional.

Possible acceptable uses of this ability:

  • To move recently uploaded files with an obvious error in the file name where that error would not be a reasonable redirect. For example: moving "Sheep in a tree.jpg" to "Squirrel in a tree.jpg" when the image does in fact depict a squirrel.
  • To perform file name swaps.
  • When the original file name contains vandalism. (File renaming criterion #5)

Please note, this ability should be used only in certain circumstances and only if you are absolutely sure that it is not going to break the display of the file on any project. Redirects should never be suppressed if the file is in use on any project. When in doubt, leave a redirect. If you forget to suppress the redirect in case of file name vandalism or you are not fully certain if the original file name is actually vandalism, leave a redirect and tag the redirect for speedy deletion per G2.

The malicious or reckless breaking of file links via the suppressredirect user right is considered an abuse of the file mover right and is grounds for immediate revocation of that right. This message serves as both a notice that you have this right and as an official warning. Questions regarding this right should be directed to administrators. --Majora (talk) 21:36, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Wiki Science Competition 2019Edit

Dear uploader of European Science Photo Competition 2015 and Wiki Science Competition 2017, we would like to remind you that Wiki Science Competition 2019 has started in the whole world. It is now completed in Russia (active in May), Ukraine and France (active during November), but it's still open in all the other countries.

If you want to take part where WSC2019 is still open, please consult this page. Only some national categories are associated to competitions with local prizes.

If you are an expert user, please consider that images uploaded within the deadline can be included in any case in their national category even if not uploaded with the main interface.

Please keep in mind that there is a new category this year, i.e. "nature and wildlife".

If you already took part in a country that has completed its upload phase, please consider improving the description in English of your files (click on the edit button), since such description is what the international jury will use to evaluate them. World finalists will be finalized after March 2020.

Sorry for bothering you and have a nice wiki.

Commons Photographers User Group: Meeting on September 26 and other stuffEdit

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

I've got a quick update for you, containing three items:

  • I’d like to invite you to our group’s second Virtual Meeting on Saturday, September 26, 2020. As last time, this meeting will serve as an opportunity to get to know each other better, share learnings, and connect in times of the global COVID-19 pandemic. If you'd like to present, please add your name and the proposed topic to the list on the talk page.
  • Also, I'd like to start a conversation about how we should be sharing responsibility for the user group going forward. I'd love to get some help when it comes to organizing things and I'm convinced that we can achieve more if a couple of people helped with coordinating stuff.
  • Finally, the Wikimedia Foundation has asked me to spread the word about their latest survey: Universal Code of Conduct Survey. The goal is to create a safer environment on Wikimedia projects and the Foundation gathers feedback prior to coming up with a first draft.

Hope to see you at the Zoom meeting in September!

All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 18:42, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

Reminder: User Group Meeting this SaturdayEdit

Dear Commons Photographers User Group member,

This is a quick reminder that our second virtual meeting will take place this Saturday, September 26. The agenda entails presentations about drone photography, about the story behind a featured picture, and about the future of LRMediaWiki. We'll also discuss photographers’ contacts with the Wikimedia Foundation and the election of representatives for our user group. You'll find information about all of this on the event page:

I'm also inviting you to share some information about yourself and your photography work with other members of the user group on our new membership list:

I hope you're well during these difficult times. All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 15:43, 23 September 2020 (UTC)
