Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth 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 (2013) 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 are all 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.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Category_talk:Islamophobia[edit]

Don't know what the intended purpose of the remarks you left on my talk page is, but I'm not sure that I'd care too much about Category:Islamophobia if not for the glaring contradiction between 1) User:Liftarn takes great smarmy smirking smug satisfaction in the fact that he's managed to "game the system" and use Wikimedia Commons as a platform for the dissemination of Carlos Latuff's bigoted racism and hatemongering, and 2) User:Liftarn is relentless in seeking to label anyone and everyone who disagrees with him about anything as a "racist" (which is his basic motivation for getting involved with Category:Islamophobia)... AnonMoos (talk) 03:29, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

I would be curious to hear your opinion about the "other languages" point. Maybe cat:xenophobia can be a compromise, and we can bring that nonsense to an end. Until then it is an exercise in composure.
Wait - Liftarn likes Latuff?! I don't get it.
"bigoted racism and hatemongering"     Heavens sake - is there no one who can live without words that are heavy like sledgehammers? I recently looked through Latuff's stuff and even created Category:Cartoons by Carlos Latuff comparing Israel and Nazi Germany, and I don't think that anything of this is more than just dull. Some people are a bit stupid, and some people like to throw mud at each other. That shouldn't be a big deal. mate2code 19:02, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
The classic example is File:Cry-wolf.png, where Latuff seems to have added side-curls to the figure on the left for the specific purpose of expressing his bigoted contempt for Jews and Judaism in general (the trademark Latuff hatemongering touch). Certainly no-one has ever been able to offer any alternative explanation with any degree of plausibility. Latuff in himself may not be too important, but the fact that Liftarn has been able to use Wikimedia Commons as a platform to promulgate bigoted hatemongering, combined with Liftarn's trademark impenetrable sanctimonious smugness, has been annoying me for many years... AnonMoos (talk) 03:50, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
P.S. I have no problem with Xenophobia, but I strongly doubt whether Liftarn would ever agree with it, because it would throw a spoke into his goal of publicly labelling everyone who disagrees with him as a "racist"... AnonMoos (talk) 03:53, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

?[edit]

Get a life, Dschwen? Do you really think this is an appropriate edit summary when reverting an edit that stood for over one and a half years? --Dschwen (talk) 15:17, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

This is inappropriate indeed, I also saw some unfriendly comments while undoing edits by Liftarn. You seem to be in an edit war with Liftarn, please use the talk page to discuss your changes. Consider this a warning. --Denniss (talk) 15:36, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

@Dschwen: I did not revert. My edit was unrelated to Category:Antisemitic pictures - I just commented. Indeed, I didn't take a look at the dates - it looked like a fresh edit war to me. "Get a life" is not exactly the recommended tone, but it is not a personal attack as well - it is a way to say "don't waste your time".
@Denniss: I am not in an edit war with Liftarn, although there is some potential, indeed. My recent edits in Antisemitism and Adolf Hitler are clearly reverts of COM:POINT vandalism. mate2code 16:03, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

There is a wide spectrum between a collegial friendly tone and a "personal attack". Telling somebody to "get a life" is quite far from the friendly end of the scale. We are all doing this for fun in our free time here. If I'd get even more of a life than I already have, I would not have any time left to contribute on commons. --Dschwen (talk) 16:21, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Sorry if my words appeared harder than I probably meant them. The thing is just that I am particularly unnerved with that kind of "foo is racism" discussions. Usually it is really just somebody wasting his and other peoples time, by insisting that something he doesn't like is actually racism. mate2code 16:42, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Reputed file duplicates[edit]

While I know that these are all your own work, would you please the differences in the revisions for an image like File:Solfège-la.svg. I am looking at the policy overwriting existing files and these files are significantly different. If there has been a changing in the code, then the older should be marked as {{superseded}} rather than marked as duplicate. Old versions still have a historical purpose, and they should be maintained. Please {{ping}} me when you reply. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:36, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

As an aside, when requesting a duplicate deletion, please leave all the information templates and categories in place and prepend with the Template. It makes the assessment and resolution easier. Thanks again.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:45, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: There is a reason these files are in Category:Mate2code; files for deletion. I just want to get rid of them. Keeping historical versions makes sense for files that have actually been used in some nontrivial way, but these haven't. I understand that you have a point, but be assured that these five files are not worth your (or my) time, and that there is nothing wrong with letting them go. mate2code 09:52, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

There is a process to use for deletions, and it is not overwriting them, and then getting them speedy deleted. Please start a Commons:Deletion request and list the files, and I am sure that it will resolve as you require.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:59, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Userpage[edit]

Since i know absolutely nothing about CSS, if you want to try to fix my page File:Crowd of boxes on Wikimedia page, Firefox 31.0.png so it reads correctly in that browser, go ahead, mess around with it. I take it your not upset by my above CFD. I agree it sounds crackpot, but thats probably too pov, unless media coverage says its crackpot.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 19:33, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

I certainly can't fix it, I just meant to document the problem. Maybe it could be fixed on a Wikimedia level. Probably Firefox should make some improvements - it works in Chrome after all. The CFD is totally ok. mate2code 20:51, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
