Baischstraße in Stadtwiki.net[edit]

Hello Michael,
Happy to see you aroud there! Thanks for the set you've nominated, I learnt on Hermann Billing with your pictures. About Baischstraße in Stadtwiki.net, we could propose some emendations for the article in French, couldn't we? Kind regards, --Myrabella (talk) 13:35, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

Bonjour!
Unfortunately, the French Stadtwiki doesn't get much attention.
Of course, we/you can propose emendations
(or just register and conduct them, native speakers are very welcome!).
Thanks for yor review and support,

Aerial view of Television Tower St. Chrischona[edit]

Hello Ikar.us, There is a mess with that MVR, with a new page created for the renomination - and some other redirect pages (e.g. [1]) and maybe this is not the right way to deal with the former VI page -> Commons:Valued image candidates/Aerial view at Television Tower St. Chrischona. --Myrabella (talk) 23:02, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Now he has processed it. More or less.
But other MVRs where former VIs were traeted differently aren't completed either.
--Ikar.us (talk) 12:46, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the fine tuning of that MVR. For the other MVRs, yes, it's weird. Furthermore, the VI label must be manually replaced with the {{VI-former}} template in the former VI file page; it would be helpful to have this step in VICbot process.
By the way, maybe I would have closed this one with an undecided status for both candidates ("status=undecided, for all VICs in an MVR which ended up without a VIC with a positive score larger than all others"). However I edited neither the closure nor the former VI—which is still VI then.
Best, --Myrabella (talk) 16:26, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for fine tuning the archive calendar. Face-blush.svg
I agree about status=undecided. Used it now in this one, which has the technical challenge that the challenged candidate had been promoted by MVR in its first run. And the jurisdicial challenge that it didn't get any attention at all in the challenge. Hope that VICbot's shortfall lets it stay VI silently… Sifflote

Commons:Valued image candidates/Polarlicht 2 kmeans[edit]

Could you revert your close of this VIC? I don't think it is appropriate for a participant in the discussion to be closing it, even if the time is up. Otherwise, I would have closed it myself a long time ago as successful, 7 days after DimiTalen's vote. -- King of ♠ 19:13, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Closing is a routine task that anyone can perform.
I did not close it when it was due, but waited for 11 days, during which you could have fixed the nomination and explained it.
Unclosing isn't provided and not necessary.
You can simply renominate it, if you're ready for discussion now.

Commons:Valued image candidates/The fossil cliffs of Steigerberg[edit]

Hallo,

ich bin neu in WikiCommons und kenne die Gepflogenheiten noch nicht so gut deshalb schreibe ich auf diesem Weg. Zu dem Kontra zu o.g. VIC habe ich einen Kommentar auf der Kandidatenseite geschrieben. Es ist wirklich ein ausgesuchter Set von Bildern aus einer größeren Sammlung von Bildern dieses inzwischen wieder zugeschütteten Geotops. Vielleicht können Sie ihre Bewertung ja nochmal überdenken.

Viele Grüße Arcalino (talk) 16:22, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

For the VI Barnstar. A great addition to my day! -- Godot13 (talk) 19:07, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment on my VISC. I've changed the scope for Commons:Valued_image_candidates/Sea-Air_Rescue_Training_(Norwegian_Coast_Guard) to more accurately reflect the set. Please let me know if you approve with the new scope. Thanks- Godot13 (talk) 01:55, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Question[edit]

The VIS Great Synagogue is promoted and closed. This does not effect the outcome, but I just noticed that someone added a support vote and changed the vote numbers after I had closed it. I have only been on Commons for 2 months so I do not know whether I should say something or just forget it. Do you have an opinion? - Godot13 (talk) 05:41, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

All other contributions by this user look useful.
Maybe he has confused it with QI consensual review, where the template looks similar, but the running total has to be updated by each voter.
I think you can forget it.

Okay, thanks!-Godot13 (talk) 18:57, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

VIC talk page[edit]

Hi Ikar!

I have started two discussion topics at Commons talk:Valued image candidates/candidate list. But it seems that this page is visited less frequently. Hence thought of notifying you as you are a regular editor at VIC. Please put your views, if any, on these topics. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 09:43, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Prison destroyed, restored by me[edit]

lol

In some way, this is not absolutely wrong !
After the destruction, a new building was erected in 1902. Believe me or not, my own family flat, from where I'm writing you right now, is in this new building, second floor. And yes, I've restored this flat (paintings, electricity and so....).
Ah Ah !
Funny, isn't it ?--Jebulon (talk) 17:37, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

File:Windkraftwerk in Schiff.jpg[edit]

Nice photo that you have added. However, it looks really weird when we used it in the articles having the white space around the upper left side of the image. I think it will look better if you use the original image (768 x 1024), rotate clockwise for 17 degrees, and crop down toward the center (crop left-right equally and top-bottom equally) to the size of 565 x 765. The result image will have the ship angle that is not perfect, but it will look reasonable. It will not have any white space, and it still get the whole idea of the ship with the tower inside it. The lower right will still have water to show that the ship is running through a waterway. If you want, I can make that I upload for you. Your thought? Z22 (talk) 03:08, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

That would be really too small. Please use the original file: http://ikar.us/Windkraftwerk_in_Schiff.JPG --Ikar.us (talk) 09:49, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
Could you please take your original and upload it to File:Windkraftwerk in Schiff.jpg? This way, your high resolution file will be released as Creative Common license as well. Then I can rotate, crop and upload for you right after your upload. Sorry for nitpicking, but it seems that people in Commons are very strict with the copyright stuff. I just got a picture that I took deleted from Commons the other day due to some complications with copyright. I just don't want another problem. Z22 (talk) 01:53, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

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

You are receiving this message because you voted in the 2012 Picture of the Year contest.

Hello[edit]

Hello Michael,
I hope you're fine. Each time that I upload a photo about river transport on Commons, I think of you—that is to say, not very often but it happens. I guess because of one of your very first VIs, I had spent time scrolling through the related categories then! So I am pleased to dedicate my lastest image on this topic to you → File:Dragage_Seine_Paris.jpg. Cheers, --Myrabella (talk) 09:23, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
