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

Dog photos in Cat:Unidentified Anatidae[edit]

Hi Kersti - I removed these dog photos from Cat:Unidentified Anatidae as they are, basically, photos of dogs, with the dead birds being only a minor component of the photo, not the main subject. Just the same as they are not included in categories like Unidentified Poaceae, Unidentified wetland locations, etc., etc. The poor things are also so mangled as to be beyond any realistic hope of identification, so there is little point in having them in the category. They could perhaps though be added to Category:Abused birds, or to some hunting-related category? - MPF (talk) 14:15, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

I think the natural enemies, hunting and so on, are relevant topics of an article concerning the duck species. Therefore it is good to have photos showing the natural enemies and humans hunting the species in the species categories to illustrate these subtopics of species-articles. Abused ist not correct - hunting ist a natural part of wildlife. Caging and slaughtering birds is more abuse than to carry a dead bird around, who doesn't feel it any longer. Therefore Category:Anseriformes (dead) would be the correct category.--Kersti (talk) 16:41, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Forgot to say, a good solution, thanks! - MPF (talk) 01:28, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Category:Human skulls[edit]

Polski: Nie róbmy bałaganu
Esperanto: Ni ne faru malordo
Polski: Rozumiem, że jesteś przeciwko usunięciu Category:Human skulls z Category:Skulls. Usunąłem Category:Human skulls z Category:Skulls ponieważ Category:Human skulls był w Category:Skulls dwukrotnie. Myślę, że jest bałagan jeśli Category:Human skulls jest jedonczenieśnie w:

1) Category:Human skull -> Category:Homo skulls -> Category:Hominidae skulls -> Category:Primate skulls -> Category:Mammal skulls -> Category:Animal skulls -> Category:Skulls

2) Category:Human skull -> Category:Skulls

Myślę, że musimy wybrać tylko jedną z dwóch ścieżek, nie możemy wybrać ścieżki 2) bo wtedy człowiek nie będzie wśród zwierząt a to błąd.

Marek Mazurkiewicz (talk) 09:18, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Esperanto: Mi komprenas ke Vi estas kontraŭ eligi Category:Human skulls el Category:Skulls. Mi eligis Category:Human skulls el Category:Skulls ĉar Category:Human skulls estis en Category:Skulls dufoje. Mi opinias ke estas malordo se Category:Human skulls estas samtempe en:

1) Category:Human skull -> Category:Homo skulls -> Category:Hominidae skulls -> Category:Primate skulls -> Category:Mammal skulls -> Category:Animal skulls -> Category:Skulls

2) Category:Human skull -> Category:Skulls

Mi opinias ke ni devas elekti nur unu el du vojoj, ni ne povas elekti vojo 2) ĉar "homo" ne estos inter "bestoj" kaj tio estos eraro.

Humans are no animals - therefore this is correct Kersti (talk) 09:20, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes, but that's not the way, most people think. Therefore people interested in medizine or history won't find the human skulls in animal skulls, people interested in biology would search it primarily there. Both categorysations are nessesary. Kersti (talk) 09:32, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

File:Sturnus vulgaris (Chester).jpg[edit]

Thanks for all of the categorisation work you've been doing on Chester Zoo and the Karoo National Park. :-) I'm afraid that File:Sturnus vulgaris (Chester).jpg by @Biopics: is a bit of a complication, though - it's a bird *at* chester zoo rather than *in* the zoo's collections. Do you think it would be worth renaming Category:Birds in Chester Zoo to Category:Birds at Chester Zoo to deal with this case, or would that then be out of line with other "Birds in" categories? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 19:27, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

I guess my english is not good enough for such decisions as I am German. I would think that it is in the zoo as it is somewhere between the outer walls of the zoo. Therefore I simply would mention the fact that it is a wild bird in the description page of the photo, or if there's a whole category vor wild birds in a zoo in the description of the category, like I did it here: Category:Eudocimus albus at Brevard Zoo. --Kersti (talk) 14:29, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
OK, thanks. "in" could indeed mean somewhere between the outer walls of the zoo, but it is ambiguous. Given that you used "at" in the Brevard Zoo category name, and looking at Category:Birds in zoos by zoo name there's a mix of 'in' or 'at', I think I'll move the category to Category:Birds at Chester Zoo and see how that goes. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 17:29, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Over-categorisation of fossils[edit]

Hi, is there any good reason why we need so many categories that are pretty much interchangeable? Skeletons, fossils, bones, anatomy, of these four, only the two first ones are necessary. The two last ones just make parallel hierarchies that are extremely difficult to navigate through. It may make sense for extant animals to have such categories, but for prehistoric ones, every bone is a fossil, and so is every other anatomical structure. FunkMonk (talk) 15:35, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

If you ask me, the category which is absolutely NOT Useful is fossils. A fossil may show skeletons, feathers, footprints or even a print of soft tissue. To an article the main question usually is not "Is it a fossil or a painting" but - "Here I am writing about the feathers of this dinosaur - is there a picture showing this feathers?" Therefore I would sort the fossil categories only according to the place where they are found and according to time range. In the species categories I would sort by the informational content of the pictures (teeth, skeletons, bones, anatomy) and think it is not very interesting if it is a fossil or something else. But usually I am working on living species and species extinct after 1600, therefore I am not the one to will decide this. --Kersti (talk) 11:41, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, well, as it is now, most paleontology entries here have the genus name, which includes life restorations, and a fossil subcategory, which includes any kinds of fossils, including feathers and similar. That would be the main distinction, which of course is dissimilar to what can be said about extant species. That is what most people writing and searching for images about prehistoric taxa would be interested in finding. Subcategories like "skulls", "feathers", etc., and such are ok, the problem is just having parallel categories. Every such image would have to be categorised as both "bones of" and "fossils of", which would be a waste. FunkMonk (talk) 06:14, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

The life restauration categorie is useful. The fossil category mixes up photos of fossils with drawings which schow fossils and drawings which show how a full skeleton might have looked like, even if mankind knows only three different half skeletons (and it is not impossible that they may belong to three different species). Or: someone looks on three different feather prints and draws his ideas how feathers might have evolved. These are not live reconstuctions but some anatomical reconstuctions. --Kersti (talk) 11:30, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Unidentified bird tags[edit]

Hi. You added "unidentified bird" cats to two photos each showing buffleheads and surf scoters, even though all four were clearly labeled. All you had to do was simply copy-and-paste the common name into google and their scientific names would've popped up. You then could've copied-and-pasted those into the proper cat. Both are distinctive species. You also put a number of photos showing brown pelicans that were simply labeled "pelican(s)" into the "unidentified bird" cat instead of "Unidentified Pelecanidae" or even "Unidentified Pelecaniformes". Why? PhysalusAntiquorum (talk) 22:41, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Because labeling the birds, that were not in the correct species category as unidentified was not the main work I did, while putting all birds in "Category:birds of ...". The main work was therapeutic work at the telefone. And there was simply not enough concetration left over to sort it better. If I would have tried half the categories would have been at the wrong picture. Kersti (talk) 23:04, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Ok, I guess I'll partially accept that. Still, you can't really confuse either species with anything else (well, drakes at least). It would be really hard to put either in the wrong cat. PhysalusAntiquorum (talk) 00:52, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
I simply work in a different way than you. I made more than 500 edits today. You made 389 since Apr 15, 2014 - you put more work in every single edit, I do the same work in some more steps. One day I add a Category:Animals in zoo xxx as exact as possible and in the same step mark some animals simply as missing a correct species category (how exact the Category:Unidentified XXX name is given differs according to how good I feel), another day I go through a category with many unidentified animals and add some exact scientific names.
As I am German I don't understand why I should know english species names of North American birds. I hope to learn them step by step in sorting images, but in many cases I am not shure if someone describes how a bird looks like, if it is some kind of joke or if it is a species name. Kersti (talk) 03:08, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
Nevermind. You appear to be the same person as User:Kilom691. Retreat to another profile, did we? Well, carry on then. PhysalusAntiquorum (talk) 22:49, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

You're kidding? I hope you don't believe it yourself. Simply look at my user contributions --Kersti (talk) 23:04, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

I must have been looking at the wrong page for a certain edit. My mistake. PhysalusAntiquorum (talk) 00:52, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
