The file was lost due to an server bug. Recovering is very expensive or even impossible. Please reupload this image if the source is still accessible to you. Yours sincerely McZusatz (talk) 13:52, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks for letting me know; I've re-uploaded the image. Mike Peel (talk) 09:06, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
License conflict 
I received the permission statement from the engraver and have added the OTRS template to: File:Southwark engraving about the River Thames frost fairs 3.jpg File:Southwark engraving about the River Thames frost fairs 1.jpg
However, you used a template to add a 2.5 license, while the engraver used a 3.0. I added the 3.0 template, but the page looks confusing with both. I think I could edit your template, but I'd prefer that you do it, if only because it wouldn't be right for me to edit your template without letting you know.--Sphilbrick (talk) 14:50, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
- Many thanks for getting the permission from the engraver. :-) I've updated the license on the pages to 3.0 with a joint attribution statement, hope that's OK. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 08:59, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Picture of the Year voting round 1 open 
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:
- Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
- 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.
- 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.

I have responded to the comment you left on the above-named discussion page. In case you weren't planning to revisit that page, I'll reïterate here that nothing on that page was intended to apply to media of demolitions in progress, which I understand as belonging on the "Demolitions" pages -- in your case, "Demolition in the United Kingdom." We are discussing media of intact buildings which were later demolished. You are most welcome to join the discussion there. Hamblin (talk) 10:32, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
