Challenges open for voting[edit]

What happened with voting page for Vanishing point? ̴̴ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gitanes232 (talk • contribs) 22:13, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

I was already asking in different place here, but maybe no one noticed. Why the page for voting for Vanishing point challenge from June does not exist? Michal Valach (talk) 00:41, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

I've been wondering the same thing. I'm not sure what the structure is as far as who creates the voting pages, etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by KatSmile (talk • contribs) 20:46, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

it is User:Jarekt that create such pages nowadays. I though he was busy in RL, when I noticed the red link days ago. I vote few times during the year so I haven't really noticed that until now. I help him with the maintenance of theme pages and creating the submission page, but not the voting pages.--Alexmar983 (talk) 04:56, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
We could ping the people in this talk, the uploaders of the photo challenge and the voters at the other challenge when the page it's ready, this should provide enough statistically unbiased votes quickly.--Alexmar983 (talk) 04:58, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Opps, I forgot about it. There was some issue with the entries and I left messages on talk pages of people that had too many images, but forgot to check back and finish the job. I will work on that this evening. --Jarekt (talk) 11:38, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Jarekt good, thank you. User:KatSmile, User:Gitanes232 I ping you, you have the answer now. We can keep the voting open for some more days to fix that. I wasn't thinking to vote but I will just to be sure we have enough votes.--Alexmar983 (talk) 12:44, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

July Themes[edit]

Ok, so in one week July begins.

The comments in the theme pages are slowing down, maybe we can ping someone. I ping the last winners User:Nheyob, User:Palauenc05 User: Ivan2010, User:PIERRE ANDRE LECLERCQ and User:Gozitano, if you want to leave some votes or comments.

So, first of all, musical instruments should be selected because of an event in Hamburg, as requested by User:Gnom. Are we still ok with that? I think so. User:Uwe Rohwedder and User:Mich.kramer, I saw also your names on those pages of dewiki, can you also inform your dewiki friends? Thanks!

About the second choice, I notice that besides "Street photography" in March, the last challenge showing some people occurred in December ("Holidays"). And in that case people enjoyed more the photos with people that those without them, as you can see looking at the winners, so maybe it's time we try something in that direction. I mean, we can do this also next month... "concert photography" will show a lot of performers and public, but we should avoid it now because it overlaps too much with "musical instrument".

Personally, since it is summer I'm a little bit tempted also by "sailbots", if not this month maybe the next one.

Let's cast the last votes and crunch the number.-Alexmar983 (talk) 06:27, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

I am fine with musical instruments and sailboats, but more votes on Commons_talk:Photo_challenge/themes would be nice. --Jarekt (talk) 03:22, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
maybe it's the season... people have better things to do than voting for themes. There are two or three proposals that I wanted to remove. I wait few days and if they get no positive comments at this round, I put them in the archive.--Alexmar983 (talk) 11:37, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
musical instruments and sailboats than?--Alexmar983 (talk) 08:42, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
Sure, I see no objections. --Jarekt (talk) 16:16, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
Commons:Photo challenge/2017 - July - Sailboats. Sorry i gotta go. Not sure when I am back today!--Alexmar983 (talk) 04:50, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

August Themes[edit]

The German users, despite being informed, did not upload the pictures of instruments as we expected. As a result, the current challenge will be postponed. Before we pick the next theme, do we agree on that? In the end we have to postpone also the final voting for one of June challenge, so it is not a big deal.--Alexmar983 (talk) 10:39, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

If we agree on this, "Concert photography" will be definitely scheduled in September, still good for the summer season and avoid any superposition. But I am sad, I would have preferred "Concert photography" in July to be honest, we basically made an effort to please other users, so bad it did not turn out well.--Alexmar983 (talk) 10:51, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
