A fresh star Barnstar for you![edit]

Commons barnstar.png The Commons Barnstar
For an excellent fresh start on Commons in the image review circuitry. It appears you have had your fights elsewhere with the wiki community. I have no idea what that was about, and I don't care either. On Commons I only see new interesting contributions and nominations, careful image assessments and insightful comments. Moreover, you are not afraid to also partake in the less prestiguous chores of image nomination closure etc. Keep up the good work! --Slaunger (talk) 21:33, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Your vote[edit]

Hi Claritas, I believe you should change your oppose reason for this nomination because the image has a lot of educational value as Dr. Andrew Young from San Diego University explained. Here's his discretion of the image:

"What a lot of beautiful effects are illustrated here! Images formed by reflection; both real and virtual images formed by refraction; and some fine examples of the contact angle where the droplets meet the plant surface. In some places, the plant cuticle is waxy, and the contact angle is near 90 degrees; in other places, the water wets the surface, and the contact angle is small. The picture is a real museum of physics, in addition to being a beautiful image. Thanks!"

So I hope after reading the commentary made by a person who knows what he's talking about you'd agree your "limited educational value" sounds kind of funny. Cheers.--Mbz1 (talk) 22:38, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

For photographs of flowers, I always like to know the species of each one shown. I can think of many better ways of demonstrating these optical phenomena, so the content is not featurable imo on that. Relatively low resolution too. --Claritas (talk) 07:41, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hey, thanks for reviewing my image and promoting it as a QI, if you don't mind can you please review this Lakhota Museum Jamnagar, I covered that museum as a part of GLAM activity carried out single handed. Thanks. Rangilo Gujarati (talk) 14:24, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

It's a good page. Unfortunately, there's no specific gallery review page at the moment, so I can't conduct a formal review. --Claritas (talk) 14:33, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
Aagh, sorry didn't know that, I thought if one user promotes the image it gets promoted as a QI, thanks for removing the tag, now I came to know about QICbot too, thanks. Rangilo Gujarati (talk) 11:41, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
No problem. Normally one user's opinion is enough, but you have to wait to make sure that no-one disagrees. --Claritas (talk) 11:58, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hi Claritas, thanks for nominating my image, Stone Urn, for QI, and for fixing the chromatic aberration. I had given up on it really so it was a very pleasant surprise. --Stu Phillips --Str Photo 02:04, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Hmm[edit]

[1] If you really were S Larctia, I did wonder what happened to you. But I don't understand this comment, especially when I have quite a lot of uploads and I have dealt with patrolling, serious copyright issues, etc. Ottava Rima (talk) 14:26, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

I am a patroller. There is no requirement to constantly put up new content. Nor do I produce "quality images" because that requires types of equipment that I do not use. And you speak about Commons where I have a much more substantial background on than you do. I also have a high rate of deletions in my nominations, especially regarding copyright concerns. And you know the reason why my 20,000 image upload related to the Wikiversity archaeology/cultural preservation project was halted. Ottava Rima (talk) 18:28, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
"but most users consider your behaviour antagonistic" I don't see evidence of most, but the nature of disputes is antagonism. By definition, "disagreeing" is "antagonistic". "unlike you I have uploaded several featured pictures" Featured pictures also doesn't have real meaning on Commons. Feature pictures are derived from camera type, expensive equipment, etc., and are a simple quick vote. It is nothing like a rigorous process similar to featured articles, which I had 12. Furthermore, I only upload things that can be used. I have always stood against Commons being a base image repository no matter how pretty the images may be. Ottava Rima (talk) 18:38, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
And just so you know, I didn't mean an attack on FP to be an attack on you, just my unwillingness to ever bother with such a process. I don't care for votes to determine if my work is meaningful or not. The FAC process has people go through and give critical advice and that matters to me. Ottava Rima (talk) 21:11, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
I'd quite like to be unbanned at Wikipedia some day, so the FPs act as flashy symbols of my achievements. The label isn't really an achievement in itself. FAC is more thorough mainly because there is a limit to what can be changed once a photograph has been taken.--Claritas (talk) 21:42, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
FP wont get you unbanned at en.wiki. Content doesn't matter. Bans are arbitrary, just like unbans. You should know that by now. Ottava Rima (talk) 00:54, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Content doesn't really matter, but the only conceivable way for me to get an unban is to go into exile for a few months while showing that I can get along with people without arguing or socking.--Claritas (talk) 01:36, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
I think what matters is standing up for what you believe in. The rest is all frivolous. Ottava Rima (talk) 02:17, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
By the way, I'm uploading the rest of the reports (wont be able to do the individual images though because there are thousands and they take time to prep). I think I will have all 3000+ pages uploaded by tonight. Fyi. Ottava Rima (talk) 20:05, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Do you still honestly think that I am "more interested in trolling"? Ottava Rima (talk) 18:35, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
I've now uploaded over 1000 images in the past few days. Ottava Rima (talk) 03:43, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
Ottava, I hate to have to explain this to you, but the more you insist that my judgement of you was mistaken, the less likely I am to change my mind. Stop editing Commons: namespace at all. Cut the drama completely for a few days, and I'll advocate for you quite happily. --Claritas (talk) 16:21, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
I stopped for 3 days and made uploads, but then you supported the ban. During that time, many other pile on supports came with really nasty comments and the rest. Without responses, they continued. After I started commenting, the opposes were given grounds to justify opposes. And Commons's namespace is 90% of Commons, as the deletion discussions are essential to the rest of the project.

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.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee
