You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so.
- As it happens so often on the web, the original page was removed. Therefore, I can only link to the site where it was posted when I grabbed a copy. It's still in the public domain though. --Rsberzerker (talk) 14:39, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
Commons:Graphics village pump/October 2012
Sorry I didn't see your question there until now, but it was more of a policy question than a technical image question, and so might have been asked on the general "Commons:Village pump". People do overwrite small blurry/yellow artwork image versions sometimes with better and larger scans, and I very occasionally do something like slightly unyellowing File:Lenoir, Charles-Amable - Elegant Lady.jpg. However, this is actually somewhat of a grey area under current Commons policies. I would advise you to overwrite only if your scan is bigger and obviously much better, or if it's derived from the currently-uploaded image version and edited with a light hand (not radically recast). If the original uploader objects, then it's generally best to back off and re-upload under a different name, because the letter of current Commons policies favors him more than you...

- Thanks for response. I'll ask in the Village Pump before I do anything. I've already done some alterations already, I'm just looking for the correct way to upload them. --Rsberzerker (talk) 16:03, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

- In other languages: Deutsch, Ελληνικά, English, français, magyar, italiano, македонски, 日本語, русский, svenska
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of 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 were 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.
There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.
Round 2 will end on .
