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 »

File renames[edit]

Thanks for your support. Admittedly, it's slightly more complicated than the one file you looked at. Check the history of File:Gottermayer-tomb-Kerepesi.jpg. I thought he was asking for a rationale (even though I would have thought it obvious from the name change) so I added one when requesting a move a second time. While I think a requested name change was reasonable, I can understand that someone might feel different. What I can't understand is a) describing my proposed name changes "without reason," b) describing my proposed new names as "terrible" c) essentially ordering me to do something on commons, d) threatening to "treat me as a vandal" despite my obvious good intentions if I don't follow the order, and worst of all, e) getting immediately angry at both me and Wieralee for failing to recognize his authority. None of these actions demonstrate COM:AGF, a healthy approach to a difference of opinion or to administrative powers. That's as civilly as I can describe his comments from my point of view.

I recognize that there might be some language issues here, but I have to say this has filled me with some serious anxiety about my future contributions to Commons. If I weren't an experienced user, I would surely have just backed down and probably never edited again. So, if it's just misunderstanding, it's a mighty dangerous kind of misunderstanding. Either way, I'm convinced a person behaving this way should not be wielding any kind of administrative authority here. I don't know the procedure for making a formal complaint, because in 9 years of steady wiki & commons editing I've never had a problem with an admin before, nor even a serious problem with another user. A quick glance at en:WP:RFDA looks like a rat's nest of reading and bureaucracy, and that's wikipedia not commons. If you could let me know where I should complain, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks. - Themightyquill (talk) 15:10, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Additionally, I'd like to know how to proceed with the remaining images of specific people's tombs in Category:Kerepesi Cemetery that are not identified as such by the filenames. I'd also like to know whether, if I were to apply for filemover rights in the future, if this episode will cause my application to be rejected. I certainly hope I haven't gotten User:Wieralee in any trouble, since s/he was helpful and courteous from the beginning. - Themightyquill (talk) 15:28, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

After I left the note on your page, I'd seen a similar note that Marcus had left on Wieralee's page and realized that the history was more complicated. But not in a way that changes my opinion or previous comment. Using the example you provided, you did initially provide a rationale (i.e. criterion 2), he refused the request as he believed no valid reason having been given, so you proposed a move again with a detailed explanation. He is entitled to disagree with your rationale, but he is not entitled to order you to do things or to threaten you. Wieralee is not in any trouble - he simply handled a move request that on its face seemed reasonable to him/her.

As for complaints, I would start at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems. However, I would wait before initiating a complaint that brings in a number of other users. You've left a note for Marcus questioning his response to you, as have I. Personally, I would give him some time to respond. Sometimes if one has spent a lot of time working on Commons, one can feel that one's efforts are unappreciated, and it sometimes means that occasionally we are not as civil as we should be. It happens to all of us. That's not an excuse, but it is perhaps a reason to see if he responds civilly with an explanation and/or apology. I have not been heavily involved in Commons lately, so have no idea if Marcus is encountering such issues regularly or this is a one-off. Obviously, if he fails to respond, or his response is equally belligerent, then it might worth asking other admins to comment on your concerns. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 16:19, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Still no response despite your reminder, but this continues: User_talk:Steinsplitter#File:O.C5.BCenna.2C_Poland_-_World_War_I_cemetery.jpg. It seems to me to be an unfortunately identical situation, only moreso since the original file name is apparently incorrect. I understand that you haven't been involved in Commons much lately, but I imagine if you, as an administrator, were to raise the issue with others it might have more meaning than if I do. - Themightyquill (talk) 21:15, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

No courtesy of a response. I am disappointed. I can't really speak to the issue on Steinsplitter's talk page, since Google translate only gets me so far, but it does seem to be along the same lines. I'll raise the issue tomorrow if he hasn't responded. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 21:49, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks again for your support with this, Skeezix, but I'm more than a little confused. Near unanimity in belief that his actions were inappropriate, but the discussion gets archived without resolution and nothing else happens? No apology. No warning. That's it? - Themightyquill (talk) 07:18, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Also, what to do about the remaining poorly named files in Category:Kerepesi Cemetery? And what to do about File:Ożenna, Poland - World War I cemetery.jpg, which still has an inaccurate file name? - Themightyquill (talk) 07:22, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
