John William Jones D.D.[edit]

Adam, I have added several images of Reverend John William Jones, editor of the Southern Historical Society volumes in Commons. Use them if so desire. I also added his signature. Respectfully, William Maury Morris II (talk) 01:16, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Southern Historical Society Papers volume 31.djvu -26[edit]

Hallo AdamBMorgan, those are missing a valid copyright tag. Please add the correct one - I guess it will only be {{PD-1923}} - as there are several authors included no PD-old template can be added. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 16:02, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Man-power![edit]

One of your pictures has ben cropped and used as the centrepiece of the article Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant. Amandajm (talk) 08:47, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

File:WeirdTalesv36n2pg043 Superstitions and Taboos.png[edit]

The content of that image is factually almost completely worthless... AnonMoos (talk) 21:39, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

So? I'm not sure what you mean by this. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 22:03, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
I've read and enjoyed some stories originally published in Weird Tales, but if the editors of the magazine thought that that kind of pathetic balderdash was what would appeal to their readership, it makes me wonder if the stories I've read were really representative... Anyway, why do you give your PNG's a transparent background? Using 8-bit grayscale opaque PNGs would reduce filesizes, and actually give the images a better appearance in some circumstances... AnonMoos (talk) 14:34, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
Weird Tales is what it was; whether it was worthy or not is now moot. If it helps, however, I suspect this series was just filler and it did not run for the entire magazine anyway. You have also probably read material from the Chicago/Farnsworth Wright era; this comes from the later New York/Dorothy McIlwraith era.
As for the transparent backgrounds: they better reflect the original artwork and are more practically useful. The original art was printed in monochrome ink directly onto the paper. Any "whitespace" would just be the brown of this pulpwood paper. So the artwork itself was purely the ink element. In practical terms, I have uploaded these illustrations so I can use them in transcriptions of Weird Tales on Wikisource (see en:Wikisource:Portal:Weird Tales). If I used, for example, an opaque white (or original brown) background, these illustrations would (1) look awkwardly out of place on the screen and (2) not match the appearance of the original work (the "paper" in this case being the background colour of Wikisource's main namespace). For example, see the illustration in "The Door into Infinity" from Weird Tales August-September 1936. This applies to the derived EPUB and PDF copies of the transcriptions as well; and if anyone were to use the images to print a replica of the pulp magazine, the transparency would be appropriate there too for the same reason. In the past, with The Spider, I uploaded both opaque and transparent versions of each illustration but continuing to do so is not practical as it doubles to load on my bandwidth limit.
I have never been concerned about the filesize. In fact, I upload the largest, best quality image I can for each illustration. Where and if smaller images are desired, I think the automatically generated thumbnails should help. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 13:34, 31 October 2012 (UTC)
OK, that makes some sense... However, your files (at least the ones I examined) are in 32-bit "RGBA" mode (RGB + alpha channel), and putting them into 16-bit grayscale+alpha mode would reduce filesizes (not dramatically, but at least a few percent, sometimes more), and probably reduce the filesizes of thumbnails by even more.
P.S. My dad had a lot of pulpy magazines from the 1950s and early 1960s (not "Weird Tales") when I was a kid, and File:WeirdTalesv36n2pg043 Superstitions and Taboos.png reminds me of some of the aspects of magazine publishing from that era that I don't have the slightest bit of nostalgia for (along with endless Rosicrucian AMORC advertisements, etc.)...

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

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. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.
