Valued image seal.svg

These are the candidates to become valued images. Please note that this is not the same as featured pictures or quality images. If you simply want some feedback on your pictures you can get that at photography critiques.

Single images can be proposed for valued image (VI) status. Candidates must be proposed as being the most valuable of all Commons' images within a specified scope. Judging is carried out according to the valued image criteria.

A Most Valued Review (MVR) is opened where there are two or more candidates competing within essentially the same scope.

The rules for promotion can be found at Commons:Valued image candidates/Promotion rules.

An image which has previously been declined can be renominated within the same scope only if the issues leading to the original decline have been addressed. Previously nominated images that were closed as "undecided" can be renominated at any time. Once a candidate achieves VI or VIS status it can normally be demoted only if some better candidate replaces it during an MVR.

If you would like to nominate an image for VI status, please do so following the instructions below. If you are proposing a better candidate within essentially the same scope as an image which already has VI status, please open an MVR.

How to nominate an image for VI status[edit]

Nominations will be evaluated using the criteria listed at Commons:Valued image criteria. Please read those criteria before submitting an image to help cut down on the number of candidates that have a low chance of success. Make sure you understand the concept of scope and how to choose the correct scope for your nomination. Please make sure that your proposed image fulfills all of the necessary criteria before nominating it. For example, if it needs to be geocoded, do that in advance. If no appropriate categories exist, create and link them beforehand. Although some reviewers may help by fixing minor issues during the review process, it is your responsibility as nominator to ensure your image ticks all the necessary boxes before you propose it. If you nominate an image that ignores one of the criteria, don't be surprised if it fails VI review.

Adding a new nomination (image)[edit]

Step 1: Copy the image name into this box (excluding the File: prefix), at the end of the text already present in the box, for example, Commons:Valued image candidates/My-image-filename.jpg. Then click on the "Create new nomination" button.


Step 2: Follow the instructions on the page that you are taken to, and save the resulting VIC subpage.

Step 3: Manually add the candidate image towards the end of Commons:Valued image candidates/candidate list (under the heading "New valued image nominations"), as the last parameter in the VICs template. Click here, and append the following line as the last parameter of the relevant section:

|My-image-filename.jpg

so that it looks like this:

{{VICs
 ...
 |My-image-filename.jpg
}}

and save the candidate list.


Renomination[edit]

Declined VICs can be renominated by any registered user, but only after one or more of the root cause(s) leading to a decline has/have been addressed. Undecided VICs can be renominated as is although it is still recommended to consider and fix issue(s) which may have hindered a promotion of the candidate in the previous review.

Besides fixing issues with the previous nomination the following procedure shall be followed upon renomination.

Step 1: Edit the candidate subpage you intend to renominate. All declined and undecided VICs are placed in either Category:Declined valued image candidates, or Category:Undecided valued image candidates and sorted by the date of the previous nomination.

Step 2: Replace the previous nomination date and time by pasting in

|date={{subst:VI-time}}

Step 3: Replace the "undecided" or "declined" status with "nominated" (or "discussed" if you intend to add it to a Most Valued Review).

Step 4: If the previous nominator was a different user replace the nominator parameter with

|nominator=~~~

Step 5: If the candidate does not already have an archive link to previous reviews: Create one using the following procedure.

  • Cut the text in the previous review section (leave the closing braces "}}")
  • replace the review parameter with
|review=
{{subst:VIC-archive}}
}}
  • Save the page.
  • There is now a red link to Previous reviews. Click the link to create the archive subpage and paste in the previous reviews.
  • Save the previous reviews archive page

Step 6: Add the candidate to the candidates list.

How to open a Most Valued Review[edit]

There must be at least two candidates competing within essentially the same scope to open an MVR. Each needs its own VIC subpage, which should be created as above if it does not already exist, but with status set to "discussed". Then, add the following section at the end of the page Commons:Valued image candidates/Most valued review candidate list:

=== Scope ===
{{VICs
  |candidate1.jpg
  |candidate2.jpg
}}

where candidate1.jpg and candidate2.jpg are the VIC subpages of the respective candidates. If need be, also remove the relevant image(s) from the list in Pending valued image candidates

If one of the candidates is an existing VI within essentially the same scope, the original VIC subpage is re-opened for voting by changing its status to status=discussed and new reviews are appended to the original VIC subpage. However, any original votes are not counted within the MVR.

The status parameter of each candidate should remain set to "discussed" while the MVR is ongoing.

How to review the candidates[edit]

How to review an image[edit]

Any registered user can review the valued image candidates. Comments are welcome from everyone, but neither the nominator nor the original image author may vote (that does not exclude voting from users who have edited the image with a view to improving it).

Nominations should be evaluated using the criteria listed at Commons:Valued image criteria. Please read those and the page on scope carefully before reviewing. Reviewing here is a serious business, and a reviewer who just breezes by to say "I like it!" is not adding anything of value. You need to spend the time to check the nomination against every one of the six VI criteria, and you also need to carry out searches to satisfy yourself on the "most valuable" criterion.

Review procedure[edit]

  • On the review page the image <!!--or image set--> is presented in the review size. You are welcome to view the image in full resolution by following the image links, but bear in mind that it is the appearance of the image at review size which matters.
  • Check the candidate carefully against each of the six VI criteria. The criteria are mandatory, and to succeed the candidate has to satisfy all six.
  • Use the where used field, if provided, to study the current usage of the candidate in Wikimedia projects. If you find usage of interest do add relevant links to the nomination.
  • Look for other images of the same kind of subject by following the links to relevant categories in the image page, and to any Commons galleries.
    • If you find another image which is already a VI within essentially the same scope, the candidate and the existing VI should be moved to Most Valued Review (MVR) to determine which one is the more valued.
    • If you find one or more other images which in your opinion are equally or more valued images within essentially the same scope, you should nominate these images as well and move all the candidates to an MVR.
  • Once you have made up your mind, edit the review page and add your vote or comment to the review parameter as follows:
You type You get When
*{{Comment}} My Comment. -- ~~~~ You have a comment.
*{{Info}} My information. -- ~~~~
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info My information. -- Example
You have information.
*{{Neutral}} Reason for neutral vote. -- ~~~~
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Reason for neutral vote. -- Example
You are uncertain or wish to record a neutral vote.
*{{Oppose}} Reason for opposing vote. -- ~~~~
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Reason for opposing vote. -- Example
You think that the candidate fails one or more of the six mandatory criteria.
*{{Question}} My question. -- ~~~~
  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question My question. -- Example
You have a question.
*{{Support}} Reason for supporting. -- ~~~~
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Reason for supporting. -- Example
You think that the candidate meets all of the six mandatory criteria.
  • If the nomination fails one of the six criteria, but in a way that can be fixed, you can optionally let the nominator know what needs to be done using the {{VIF}} template.
  • Your comment goes immediately before the final closing braces "}}" on the page.


How to update the status
  • Finally, change the status of the nomination if appropriate:
    • status=nominated When no votes or only neutral votes have been added to the review field (blue image border).
    • status=supported When there is at least one {{Support}} vote but no {{Oppose}} votes (light green image border).
    • status=opposed When there is at least one {{Oppose}} vote but no {{Support}} votes (red image border).
    • status=discussed When there is at least one {{Oppose}} vote and one {{Support}} vote (yellow image border).


Remember the criteria: 1. Most valuable 2. Suitable scope 3. Illustrates well 4. Fully described 5. Geocoded 6. Well categorized.

Changes in scope during the review period[edit]

The nominator is allowed to make changes in scope as the review proceeds, for example in response to reviewer votes or comments. Whenever a scope is changed the nominator should post a signed comment at the bottom of the review area using {{VIC-scope-change|old scope|new scope|--~~~~}}, and should also leave a note on the talk page of all existing voters asking them to reconsider their vote. A support vote made before the change of scope is not counted unless it is reconfirmed afterwards; an oppose vote is counted unless it is changed or withdrawn.

You can submit new nominations starting on COM:VIC.

AU NavalEnsignHalfMast.JPG
Review it! (edit)
Nominated by:
Martinvl (talk) on 2016-02-03 15:43 (UTC)
Scope:
"Invisible flag of death" flying above the Australian Naval Ensign.
Used in:
Reason:
The origin of flying a flag at "half-mast" was to fly it one flag-width below the top of the flagpole to make way for the "invisible flag of death". In some traditions, the symbol for mourning is to fly the flag half-way down the flagpole. The Australian (and British) naval tradition is however to fly it just one flag-width below the top of the flag-pole. I believe this image to be a good example of this practice. -- Martinvl (talk)

Previous reviews Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment In Commonwealth countries , the correct scope wording must be at half mast, not 'half-staff', and definitely not 'Invisible flag of death'. Charles (talk) 10:13, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

  • In response to "half-mast" vs "half-staff" - I had accidently had a ":en" to the scope name. I have now corrected that and the scope maps onto a valid commons category over which I have no control.
  • In response to your comments regarding the "invisible flag of death", please visit :en:Half-mast for a full explanation. Please also note that the page Commons:Valued image scope states quite clearly - "...scope is not a simple description of your image. Rather, it defines a generic field or category within which your image is the most valuable example. In this case, the image depicts the mast-mast variant where the space above the flag is designed to accommodate the "invisible flag of death", rather than the variant where the flag is exactly half-way down the flag-pole. I have also changed the citation in the image under submission so that it no longer points to a dead link.
Martinvl (talk) 19:43, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Speculation is no basis for a scope. You can easily rename the incorrect category Flags at half-staff in Australia to half-mast. The link on the half-mast page reference 3 is broken. Also, do you have any evidence that the authorities chose to fly the ensign in the specific position you claim? [:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-mast] Charles (talk) 09:40, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
@Charlesjsharp:
  • If you visit :Category:Flags at half staff by country, you will see that in order change "Category:Flags at half-staff in Australia" to "Category:Flags at half-mast in Australia" and to still maintain the category naming convention would be a major renaming exercise which could well trigger a UK-English vs US-ENglish edit war. This change is not going to happen.
  • Yes, I know that Reference 3 in the WIkipedia article is a dead link - that is why I added a citation to the file that is now being submitted as a VI. If you feel strongly about it, you can amend the Wikipedia article yourself. As things stand, the background to the "invisible flag of death" is well documented.
  • I make no assertion about why the flag was flown in this manner at that time and place, that is left up to the reader. However it is an indisputable fact that on the day that I took the picture, Rusty Priest was given a state funeral at a location less than 2 km away (See newspaper artcile that is linked to the name "Rusty Priest" in the article.

Junonia orithya here (Blue pansy) dorsal
Reason:
This is the Arabian sub-species. I believe the butterflies in the category from Turkey are misidentified, showing too much orange on the dorsal side and markedly different outermost eye, also on the dorsal side. I have had no response to my query to photographer Zeynel Cebeci. -- Charles (talk)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I don't think that this image warrants a category of its own as it is the only memeber of that category. I suggest that all the category "Roland statue of Obermarsberg" be abandoned and that all the categories associated with that category be moved to the image. Martinvl (talk) 22:03, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
    • I really disagree to that. I think a category to every (more or less) relevant subject is very useful to have (other images may come). I think it's always the best to have as many categories as possible, it makes the category system neatest. But I don't think it's relevant for VI here, eventually it's "well categorized at an appropriate level". --kaʁstn Dis/Cat 22:25, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
