Thank you[edit]

I just wanted to stop by and thank you for your image donations. :) File:Black-Tailed Prairie Dog.jpg is absolutely stunning, and a look at your userpage shows me he's not alone. (File:Yellow Bellied Slider Basking.jpg is also particularly gorgeous). So, I appreciate your having a good eye, a good camera, and the generosity to share the fruits of both with the rest of us. :D --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 17:58, 23 February 2012 (UTC)


Thank you for the barnstar and the admission! I'm not sure if I dare to step into the club yet. I have to take it easy for now but I'm still very grateful! --Ximonic (talk) 20:50, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

The Photographer's Barnstar[edit]

The recognition was well-received. I am just glad all these photos I take have some use other than my Facebook page:) Cheers. Saffron Blaze (talk) 18:35, 24 April 2012 (UTC)


Created a "blank" SVG version of the file 2d_political_spectrum.png which can be annotated with overlay text in any language and is also more accessible. Do you happen to know where I could go to get help translating the code?--Abel (talk) 00:27, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi Jovianeye

We are starting a new website which will focus on entertainment and other sections like Lifestyle. Shall we use your pics with appropriate credit?


Thank You for the Wikipedia Picture[edit]

Hello, My name is Duane Hurst and I recently made a free (non-commercial) English web site to share information with people. I added links to your Wikipedia/Wikimedia freeware picture. I also gave credit to you on my web pages for your work. Thank you for sharing with the public. My website is:

I add pictures such as yours to one of the following major sections of my site: 1. World section - contains information and over 10,000 images of every world country and territory. Link at:

2. USA section - contains information and images of every USA state and territory. Link at:

3. English section - "Mel and Wes" lessons in conversation format. Stories are located in various USA states and world countries such as China, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Thailand. Each lesson has many slang terms and idioms, which I link to my Slang Dictionary. This eventually will have over 5,000 terms. Currently, it has about 3,000 slang and idioms. I regularly add new lessons and slang terms. Link at: Slang Dictionary link at:

Prior to retirement, I taught English at several private and public universities in the United States.

Please share this free site with your friends. I hope all will enjoy the pictures and find the English information useful. Sincerely,  Duane Hurst in Utah, USA

May we use your photo in a 3rd Grade textbook?[edit]

Tlatelolco Marketplace was taken at a Chicago Museum. We would like your permission to print it in a text for kids. Are you able to help us with that?

Thank you, Anne

Please go ahead. --Jovian Eye storm 16:45, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

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.

"Happy Diwali!"[edit]

While Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning behind it is "the awareness of the inner light". It is the belief that there is something beyond the physical body and mind which is pure, infinite, and eternal, called the Atman. The celebration of Diwali as the "victory of good over evil” refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one's true nature, not as the body, but as the unchanging, infinite, immanent and transcendent reality. With this awakening come compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things (higher knowledge). This brings Satcitananda (joy or peace). Just as we celebrate the birth of our physical being, Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light. While the story behind Diwali and the manner of celebration varies from region to, the essence is the same – to rejoice in the Inner Light! And this year Diwali and All Souls' Day come together to fully defeat the Evil! "Happy Diwali!"JKadavoor Jee 06:16, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
