Template:Unfree frame delete[edit]

Hi. Just passing by, could you tell me what is the purpose of the above template? Kind regards. Rehman 04:27, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Sure! The template was created so the specific instructions (deleting only the image, not the upload history) wouldn't have to be explained every time there is a non-free frame removal request at the en.wikipedia graphic lab. Here is an example: See image #4. Otherwise, the instructions on what to say when requesting a speedy deletion would be time-consuming and space-consuming. Does that help? – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 04:32, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick reply! Well, I don't think that is entirely right. Mainly because:
  • When UserA uploads an image with a good licence but with a watermark, then UserB overwrites the file with a copy of the same removing watermark. It is not a good practice to delete the older version by UserA, and keep the newer version by UserB, when there is really no harm is having the older file in history.
Of course, we could delete the older versions:
  • If both files are by the same user, and the user is aware of the impending deletion.
  • If the older version does/may cause trouble (copyright, etc)
For these reasons, we already have {{Split}}/COM:HMS, or simply a {{db}} requesting deletion of older version. And maybe some other stuff here and there. Rehman 04:47, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
But it's not for watermarked images. Only images with non-free frames, and those images have to be removed because the frames aren't free (and shouldn't be on Commons). Sorry to have confused you. : ) And yes, a {{db}} request of older version is exactly what it is, but like i said, it's really time-consuming trying to explain why and how for every unfree frame removal request at the Graphic Lab. I'm not really seeing any problem here, though, unless Commons is more strict about templates than I'm used to. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 05:25, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
My bad, yes I see you mentioned unfree files only. Then it's perfectly fine :) Sorry for the trouble. Rehman 05:44, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
No worries at all, I actually really appreciate that you contacted me about it : ) – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 06:00, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Harcourt photographs[edit]

Hello,

Please see my message to Materialscientist. As the alternate versions exist exist under a new name, there is no reason overwriting these files.

I will thus revoke your revocations.

Thanks, Jean-Fred (talk) 12:42, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for catching me. I saw your note and undid my {{duplicate}} tags. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 12:47, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

File:Rainy Season in the Tropics, Frederic Edwin Church (Google Art Project - crop).jpg[edit]

You marked this file as a duplicate.. I was wondering if you might want to upload it over the original seeing as it's a minor, lossless crop and a definite improvement –⁠moogsi (blah) 00:07, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I appreciate the comment on it being an improvement; however, both images were nominated for FP at the English Wikipedia and the original version won out—though it looked like it was a close call. The crop cannot overwrite the original at this point. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 00:17, 6 April 2013 (UTC)
I've boldly removed the tag since the image is a crop, not a scaled-down version or a duplicate, and since both versions were discussed at English Wikipedia FPC it seems especially appropriate to keep both versions so that the discussion on the FPC page remains fully intact. If you feel this is in error please let me know. Thanks. --Pine 01:12, 6 April 2013 (UTC)
I trust others' judgments far more than my own. I didn't see the point of keeping the crop at this rate, but you make a good point about the FPC. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 01:22, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Jade Barbosa[edit]

The picture is from the Brazilian state news agency. Here you have the updated source: http://agenciabrasil.ebc.com.br/galeria/2007-07-16/16-de-julho-de-2007?foto=2100WD2474. Unfortunately I couldn't find a better version of the file, I'm sorry. Dantadd 05:02, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank you so much, I appreciate it! – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 06:24, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

Nicola Peltz[edit]

Hi Keraunoscopia, You doing a great job in this picture, But you forgot something, a cropped the image, as I did in this version. But do not tire yourself, I've upload a cropped version, In the same colors that your upload. I added the image on Wikipedia. Cheers!. MyCanon () 04:11, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi MyCanon, thanks! I actually don't like the crop, unfortunately, it misses too much of her shoulder and the frame looks too thin. Are you completely against the original composition? – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 04:41, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

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
