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

You are receiving this message because you voted in the 2012 Picture of the Year contest.

Toronto copyright uploads[edit]

The article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_historic_places_in_Toronto is currently being populated by images uploaded here Special:ListFiles/BaoHen They are all described as "Copyright© 2014 HENRYCHAO PHOTOGRAPHY All rights reserved" but have been given an Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license. Although the uploader's name is not the same as the copyright holder the pictures are all very recent. I am not sure whether this is genuine or not, but a big mess is being created in the wikipedia article and I don't know whether to revert or repair. Since you know TO, I have turned to you for help. Secondarywaltz (talk) 15:11, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

First, from a Wikipedia perspective, the Henry Chao images should all be sized the same as the other images in those Canadian lists, and the copyright reference should be removed from the list itself. I can't think of it at the moment, but en.wp has a guideline that effectively prohibits that kind of photo credit in actual articles and lists. I will back you up on that.

Second, from a copyright perspective, when the uploader has a different name from the named copyright holder, we often ask the copyright holder to email COM:OTRS to confirm that the images were uploaded under that particular license with his consent (or he uploaded them himself, as the case may be). I can leave a message to that effect if you would like.--Skeezix1000 (talk) 16:38, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Also, just as an aside, some of his images are nice, but others are more evidently gross HDR-type images (like File:Fourth York Post Office.jpg). To the extent he was bold and replaced existing images on that list with his own, there is nothing wrong with reinserting the original image where you do not think his image is an improvement. It was okay for him to be bold, and it is okay for you to partially revert if you disagree with the choice - with final consensus to be decided on the talk page (in the event he takes issue with your revert). --Skeezix1000 (talk) 16:41, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. It was the copyright that I was not sure how to deal with, since I thought they might be genuine, and if the items were all removed I would simply revert to previous images. Some of them are a little extreme for a small thumbnail, but I can deal with that. You will be able to give more help to a new editor here in Commons than I can, so please take care of that.
