Commons:Deletion requests/946693[edit]

Hello Jim! I didn't know, how to delete the page without a Deletion Request. -- Kleiner Stampfi (talk) 23:09, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

No problem -- I see you're pretty new here, and the learning curve can be very steep. Let me add my welcome to the machine welcome you have on your talk page -- and if you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to ask here.
In this case, it was a new Gallery page (a page without a prefix such as File:, Commons:, User:, etc.). I don't know how you came across it, but all new Gallery pages created by inexperienced users are patrolled by several Admins who delete 90% of them on sight -- vandalism, mistakes, people writing articles, and so forth. The good ones are marked as patrolled and removed from the list. So it would have been deleted within an hour or two without any action. (They work from a log at http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ANewPages&namespace=0&tagfilter=&username=&hidepatrolled=1 )
But, you don't need to depend on that. In a case where a page clearly needs to be deleted -- no discussion necessary -- you can use the tag {{speedy}} rather than {{delete}}. The {{speedy}} tag puts the page into Category:Other speedy deletions, which is also watched by Admins and will get attention promptly. Using {{delete}} invokes the more complicated process we use for pages that need discussion before deletion. By the way, I congratulate you for correctly doing that -- setting up the DR page, adding it to the log, and so forth -- not many beginners get it right.
Commons:Deletion policy will give you a longer and more detailed overview of the two processes.

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
