My pleasure :)
Announcements have been sent to the commons-l and WikimediaAnnounce mailing lists and posted on Mastodon. I've also left notes on the winner and second-place uploaders' talk pages, and encourage people to also leave congratulations there. Legoktm (talk) 03:07, 23 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
is the 2nd filename File:Etipoia Banna tribe kids.jpg misspelled? :/ RZuo (talk) 08:30, 23 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Nice catch, renamed (ideally we'd catch those things in the time between posting results and announcements, but better late than never...). Legoktm (talk) 16:09, 23 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
it's funny that it was not pointed out in the featured image vote. they normally scrutinise every single detail of a file.😂 RZuo (talk) 16:35, 23 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

POTY 2023[edit]

When the categorisation for different types of images to be voted on was created, it was intended that this would result in prizes for all the different subtypes of images - "Best bird photo", etc. I'd suggest that for the next POTY, we actually set up the POTY template to allow that, as it'll add some variety to the winners, and allow us to celebrate a wider range of material. It would also go a long way to justifying the category breakdown. Adam Cuerden (talk) 00:46, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I like the idea; what do you mean by actually set up the POTY template to allow that? And would you use the Round 1 or Round 2 results for determining category winners? Legoktm (talk) 02:39, 27 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The POTY template would need extra functionality added to be able to state an image was the winner of a category.
As for which round, I'd say there's two options:
1. We use Round 1 voting to determine category winners, allowing us to combine categories for Round 2 if we have something we feel we should have a category winner for, but which is too small a grouping to want to have it for the whole process.
2. We use Round 2 voting, and either have a few small categories or leave out some. Probably the easiest, though given we have at least six months to plan, it feels like we can afford to do better than just doing the easiest. It might also be the fairest, though.
