Hi! Welcome to Wikimedia Commons, the central media repository site. This page is for discussion of the Main Page only.


Non parlo inglese, usate un traduttore.

Un utente, Michele Bassi, copia le foto da internet e le spaccia per sue, osando pure mettere il pubblico dominio sulle foto NON SUE che carica. Ricicla anche da Google Maps (streetview) senza avere il buon senso di citarne l'origine, ma sempre inventando che sono foto sue (e mettendo il pubblico dominio). Bloccate la sua utenza, bloccate il suo IP, cancellate TUTTI i suoi contributi. 21:51, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Category list on main page?[edit]

I do not see a reason or need for a category list at the bottom of the page. It looks awkward since other sister projects like Wikipedia, do not have the categories listed at the bottom of the main page. I think that a administrator should remove the categories at the bottom of the Wikimedia Commons main page. Thank you in advance. Doorknob 747 (talk) 13:44, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Request for announcing Wiki Loves Food photo contest[edit]

Hi, Wiki Loves Food photo contest is LIVE now. Requesting to add an announcement regarding this in main page under the photo contests section. Thanks. --Ravi (talk) 09:53, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Following is the announcement text:

[[File:Wlf logo 2015.png|100px|right]] <div style="margin-left: 0.3em; padding-right: 0.6em; line-height: 1.5; color: #000; font-size: 1.6em"> '''[[Commons:Wiki Loves Food|Wiki Loves Food]]''', a photo contest of taking photos of Indian Cuisine, takes place in May - June 2015.</div>

No, please, I recall this being discussed before – "Wiki Loves Food" in its current state is a contest that only a very small portion of our users (with cameras) can participate in, and as such simply shouldn't be announced on our global main page (maybe in a geo-specific sitenotice or on Indian-language main pages instead).    FDMS  4    11:59, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Media of the Day ? Bellis perennis in Tokyo[edit]

Is that plant bellis perennis? A Google image search does not agree. Bellis perennis is characterized by single flower stalks arising from the ground-level crown with no branching. Richard Avery (talk) 06:17, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

I agree with Richard. This is not Bellis perennis. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 12:50, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
Hi! Thank you for pointing this out. Unfortunately that is my mistake and I misidentified it. I believe I have found the correct species now -- Annual fleabane (Erigeron annuus). I have requested the file be renamed. This flower is native to North America but is now widespread in Japan also. I will take more care in the future. All the best~ The Nature Box (talk) 21:30, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
