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 »

King Street, Toronto[edit]

Hello again! I noticed that you changed King Street, Toronto from an ordinary category a couple of years ago, disambiguating the East and West halves. But I see that Queen Street, Toronto, for example, has its E & W as subcats instead—which I’m inclined to think better, considering that they join more or less seamlessly at Yonge: parts of a whole, logically sharing most of the same parent cats (if not all), rather than distinct entities. I thought I should touch base with you before changing anything, but for consistency’s sake I think only one of these two patterns should be adopted, whichever it is.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 23:26, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Odysseus1479. Thanks for the note. You're right - they should be consistent. The city does, interestingly, treat them as separate entities. The reason I didn't do a DAB for Queen Street was because I hadn't emptied out the parent cat yet - I didn't think it appropriate to do so until I'd sorted all the content, as I had for King. I went the DAB route, rather than subcats, because less maintenance is required (although maintenance is hardly eliminated for the DAB): when categorizing images, hotcat will require you to pick from one of the DAB items rather than categorizing in the DAB cat. As a result, there is far less sorting to be done. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 13:35, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks; if the city considers them discrete, that’s probably reason enough for us to follow suit. I’ll empty it, then—assuming I can determine on which side each of the contents belong—but I won’t be tackling the other Toronto E/W pairs anytime soon! I just came across it while cleaning out some NEDCs, <whine>mostly filled by upload-bots blindly converting keywords to cats</whine> … but that reminds me that there’s also a King Street dab-cat: rather than linking to King Street, Toronto there (as it does now), I think it might be better to have the E & W ‘real’ cats instead (on the same line?), to save people from having to disambiguate a second time. What do you think?
Another oddity I came across recently was a dab-cat that transcluded a dab-page linking to the targets rather than presenting its list ‘on the spot’. Any idea why that was done?—was it a standard or recommended practice at one time? Or just because it serves to a disambiguate in mainspace as well? (The page is linked from nowhere else, and links only to cats.)—Odysseus1479 (talk) 02:29, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Discussion of image description formatting[edit]

Hello, Skeezix. There is a proposal for a style guideline for image descriptions at the Village Pump. Previously, you have expressed an opinion about such formatting. Please feel free to join in the discussion! — hike395 (talk) 18:12, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Bonjour, Je crois que j'avais eu une autorisation par courriel pour utiliser cette image. Malheureusement, je ne la retrouve plus. Et je n'entreprendrai pas de démarches pour des justifications ou des autorisations, toutes ces histoires de droit d'auteur étant beaucoup trop complexes pour moi. Je soulignerai seulement à mon grand regret que les anglophones n'ont pas cette difficulté puisqu'ils bénéficient de cette brillante règle du "Fair Use" alors que sur nos sites francophones, on ne peut rien mettre. Dommage et anormal selon moi. Sur ce, bien à vous.--Guerinf (talk) 15:44, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Merci pour votre note. Dommage que vous ne trouvez pas le courriel. Je suis sympathique à vos problèmes avec "fair use" sur les site francophones. Malheureusement, nous n'avons pas "fair use" ici sur Commons non plus. Si vous pensez qu'il ya une chance de trouver le courriel, je peux demander que toute décision soi retardée pour quelques semaines. (Désolé pour mon mauvais français) --Skeezix1000 (talk) 16:54, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
Merci pour votre réponse. Malheureusement, je n'ai vraiment plus ce courriel. Et bravo, votre français est très bon! Cordialement.--Guerinf (talk) 17:23, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
