Category changes[edit]

I made your proposals into gallery.--miya (talk) 07:50, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

As there is no more opinion, I'll change those categories except File:2011-02-13-chemin.jpg.--miya (talk) 17:33, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Please make these corrections[edit]

In the section "Galleries by categories":

  1. Non-phtographic files – should read "Non-photographic files"
  2. Skeleton, Mummies and fossils – should read "Skeletons, mummies and fossils"

In the section "ALL or half of 2011 FPs"

  1. ALL being entirely caps is weird, but maybe that was deliberate (the page itself is called /ALL)
  2. Dashes between dates should be en-dashes, which is more correct, but also consistent with the en-dashes in the index at the bottom of the page. Keep the spaces around the en-dashes. So "January – June 2011" and "July – December 2011"

Thanks. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 19:22, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Did you know...[edit]

  • ...that there are 13 subject categories at 2011's Picture of the Year competition? (And four that refer to specific formats.)
  • ...that twelve of the 32 current top-ranking POTY candidates are either outdoor views of nature (7) or constructions (5), while a further 3 are nature views with a vehicle or animal as a minor feature?
  • ...that there are no cluse-up pictures among nature views?
  • ...that except for the 32 top-ranked media overall, only the top one of each category will be included in round 2?

I will cross-post this, as it's not clear to me which one of these many talk pages actually gets read. Certainly, the rate of replies could be higher.
