Hello Irini,
You're welcome - and feel free to ask if you have any questions. One more (hopefully useful) advice: You can sign your comments on talk pages by writing four ~ (~~~~), which will be automatically transformed into your username (with a link to talk page) and a time stamp, by either writing the four ~ manually or using the sign symbol above the edit window (WikiSign.png).

Re: Photo Challenge Leaves[edit]

Hello Anna reg,
Oh, Ok. That's too bad, but I understand. I forgot or didn't know that submissions were up to UTC midnight. It was still November for me when I submitted them. But that's all right.
Thank you for your message anyway.
Best wishes, Mateus S. Figueiredo (talk) 02:08, 1 December 2014 (UTC).

It is included into all challenge rules (UTC) - but few people read those rules and you weren't the only one to submit pictures after the challenge was marked as closed... ;-> thanks for your answer and good luck with the December challenges, Anna reg (talk) 03:33, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Photo challenge - December[edit]

OK, the reason I only translated the titles is that I didn't have time for the explanatory texts yet. :) Einstein2 (talk) 21:38, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Well, that was a good idea, as we used them to actualise the watchlist message for December. I just wasn't sure if you were still waiting if there would be any changes to the text, as I warned you that that was a possibility... ;-> --Anna reg (talk) 21:58, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Finally, I did the translations. :) Sorry for being late. Einstein2 (talk) 22:25, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

watchlist message[edit]

hello Anna reg
thanks for your help, but how can i find the administrator who worked on it.
best wishes
--Ormazda (talk) 22:58, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

It was -revi - I wrote the code you could use in brackets - but I just realised that I made a mistake, as you don't need to use 'user' with the {{ping}} template (it should be {{ping|-revi}}). --Anna reg (talk) 23:21, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Hello Anna reg
if you mean the sentence below , it's done.
Submissions must be added to the top of the Entries section below.

Re: Commons:Photo challenge[edit]

Hallo Anna,
vielen Dank für die Mitteilung auf meiner Diskussionsseite und die Glückwünsche.
Wenn meine Ideen als talentfreier Amateurfotograf und Wikimedia-Neuling gefragt sind, bin ich gerne bereit euch zu helfen.

Wettbewerbsthemen gibt es wahrscheinlich "wie Sand am Meer" (was schon eines wäre ;-)).
Da keine bestimmte Anforderungen vorgegeben waren, habe ich die Themen nach folgenden Kriterien ausgesucht:

  • noch nicht in Photo challenge/themes vorhanden
  • zum fotografieren geeignet
  • nicht zu speziell (Mandelblüten)
  • nicht zu allgemein (Blüten)
  • interessiert mich
  • noch nicht zu verbraucht (zu oft verwendet)

Hier sind meine Vorschläge:

  1. Bahnbauwerke (Bahnhof, Eisenbahnbrücke, Stellwerk)
  2. Brunnen (Springbrunnen, Ziehbrunnen)
  3. Burgen und Schlösser (Burganlage, Burgruine, Festung, Wasserburg)
  4. Eisenbahn (Dampflok, Zug, Bergbahn, Bahnanlage)
  5. Felsengesichter
  6. Gegenlichtaufnahmen ("leuchtende" Blätter, Silhouette, Sonne, Kontur)
  7. Hütten (Holzhütte, Wanderhütte, Lehmhütte, Berghütte, Hundehütte...)
  8. Kreuze (Wegekreuz, Gipfelkreuz)
  9. Monotonie (Wiederholung, Gleichförmigkeit, Einförmigkeit)
  10. Netze (Fischernetz, Spinnennetz, Einkaufsnetz, Tennisnetz, Tornetz...)
  11. Pferde (Pferdesport, Reitschule, Wildpferd, Nutzpferd)
  12. Türme (Aussichtsturm, Fernsehturm, Leuchtturm, Kirchturm, Wasserturm)
  13. Weihnachten (Weihnachtsdekoration, -markt)
  14. Weinanbau (Weinrebe, -blatt, -traube, -berg)

Ich hoffe, dass ich euch damit etwas weiterhelfen konnte. Bei Rückfragen stehe ich natürlich gerne zur Verfügung.

Bei dieser Gelegenheit möchte ich noch gerne eine Frage loswerden:
Ist die Einschränkung bei der "Challenges open for submission" ernst zu nehmen (verbindlich)?
Bei der Durchsicht der Metadaten der Fotos vom Dezember-Photowettbewerb "Schlechtwetter" ist mir nämlich aufgefallen, dass einige Bilder nicht im Dezember 2014 aufgenommen wurden (Erfassungszeitpunkt ist älter).

Liebe Grüße und eine schöne Adventszeit.

Friedrich Haag --F. Riedelio (talk) 13:27, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Friedrich,
das ist ja einge ganze Themen-Liste! ;-> Und ein paar Vorschläge finde ich sehr spannend (Monotonie, Hütten und Netze reizen mich sehr) - ich würde deine Vorschläge gerne bei Commons:Photo challenge/themes ergänzen. Bei der Seite handelt es sich nämlich um eine Sammlung an Vorschlägen für kommende Bewerbe - unsere Bitte an euch wäre, dass ihr uns beim Aussuchen der Januarthemen helft, nachdem schlussendlich normalerweise jemand sagen muss so, die zwei Themen sind's jetzt. Meine Frage wäre also, ob du ein Wunschthema für Januar hättest?
KKnoefler247 hat dort gestern Nacht einen Abschnitt zu den Januar-Themen begonnen und auch vier Themen vorgeschlagen - ich würde deine Liste hinüberkopieren, so dass die Januar-Vorschläge allgemein diskutiert werden können. Idealerweise bekommt ihr dadurch in den nächsten Tagen Rückmeldungen, die ihr beim aussuchen eines Wunschthemas berücksichtigen könnt (aber durchaus auch ignorieren könnt).
Danke auf jeden Fall für die Liste.
Hallo Anna,
Mein Wunschthema für Januar: Hütten.
Bei dieser Gelegenheit ist mir noch ein weiteres Thema eingefallen: Ausreißer im Sinne von "bis auf eines sind alle gleich, einer tanzt aus der Reihe".
Beispiele: Vögel, Lego, Fenster.
Zum Schlechtwetter-Bewerb - wann sind dir denn die alten Bilder aufgefallen? Ich habe nämlich gestern alle Bilder, die mir aufgefallen sind, mit Benachrichtigung an den Photographen entfernt - erst recht spät, weil ich auf Grund der hohen Anzahl an Bildern, die die Beschränkung nicht eingehalten haben, erst noch einmal gefragt hatte, ob wir weiterhin auf Dezemberbilder bestehen. Das Ergebnis war (etwas zögerlich), dass die Beschränkung bleibt und ernst zu nehmen ist.
Noch ganz kurz zu deinem Vorschlag Weihnachten - es findet zur Zeit (6. Dezember bis 16. Januar) ein Photo-Wettbewerb auf der deutschen Wikipedia zum Thema Weihnachtszeit, Winterzeit, Wendezeit 2014/2015 statt, bei dem Wikimedia Deutschland sogar Preise gestiftet hat.
Ganz liebe Grüße, Anna reg (talk) 20:39, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
Die alten Bilder sind mir Anfang Dezember (ca. 06.12.2014) aufgefallen. Bei der heutigen Durchsicht habe ich nur noch eins gefunden (NMS-Nebel (4).JPG).
Hierzu möchte ich noch folgendes bemerken:
IMHO ist die Beschränkung auf neue Bilder (Dezemberbilder) aus folgenden Gründen nicht sinnvoll
  1. Der Begriff "neu/aktuell" ist relativ. Beispiel: Wenn ein Teilnehmer ein Bild von 2009 hochlädt ist es für Wikimedia Commons neu aber für ihn ist es alt.
  2. Der Begriff "neu/aktuell" ist kein Qualitätskriterium. (Wollt ihr gute oder neue Bilder?)
  3. Die Anzahl der Bilder wird eingeschränkt und die Chance ein gutes Bild zu erhalten verringert sich dadurch. Bis jetzt wurden nur 13 Fotos hochgeladen, die dem Kriterum entsprechen.
  4. Das Aufnahmedatum lässt sich leicht ändern. Deshalb müsste man die Bilder inhaltlich prüfen, was sehr aufwendig oder gar nicht möglich ist.
Liebe Grüße und frohe Weihnachten.--F. Riedelio (talk) 14:36, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
Ich hatte in diesem Fall auch das Gefühl, dass das Ergebnis ohne Beschränkung wesentlich spannendere Bilder liefert - auch wenn ich nicht generell gegen Beschränkungen bin. Der Großteil der Bewerbe sind ja auch unbeschränkt, aber für so Bewerbe wie 'Blätter' finde ich eine Einschränkung auf Bilder der aktuellen Saison durchaus sinnvoll - auch wenn es natürlich leicht wäre, zu schummeln (besonders, nachdem wir bei abweichenend Metadaten den Benutzer fragen, was da los ist und seine Antwort glauben).
Schlechtwetter ist ein Vorschlag von El Grafo, der uns motivieren wollte, das grausliche Wetter zu nutzen und darzustellen - und zwar jetzt, nicht durch vor Jahren Photographiertes. Diese Idee ist ganz in Colins Sinn (der die Photobewerbe hier auf Commons mehr oder weniger ins Leben gerufen hat), der mit den Bewerben gerne Leute dazu motivieren möchte, zu photographieren - und nicht nur ihre Archive zu durchforsten, die sonst seiner Meinung nach einen Vorteil gegenüber Leuten ohne große Photoarchive haben. Nachdem ich diese Punkte nachvollziehen kann, denke ich, dass es vielleicht ganz gut ist, hin und wieder Bewerbe mit Einschränkungen zu machen - und auf die Fairness der anderen Teilnehmer zu hoffen. Ob 'Schlechtwetter' dafür das ideale Thema ist, weiß ich nicht - aber zumindest ich weiß bei Themen nie im vorhinein, wie gut sie ankommen werden... ;->
Unsere Bitte, dir ein Thema für Januar zu wünschen stellt dir übrigens frei, Beschränkungen aufzuerlegen oder das Thema offen zu lassen - wie gesagt, wir freuen uns über Einwürfe.
Ganz liebe Grüße, Anna reg (talk) 15:35, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Info Minox-DSC[edit]

Hallo Anna! Anbei Infomaterial Minox - Anscheinend wird die Kamera in Lizens im fernen Osten gebaut und nicht in Deutschland. Wenn Du Dir mal die Metadaten von meinem Westphalenhaus anschaust, kannst Du nur mit dem Kopf schütteln -

Westphalenhaus

, aber das kleine Ding ist soo praktisch, wenn man keinen Fotoapparat oder Handy mitnehmen will.

Erstmal viele Grüße und einen schönen dritten Advent von ----Martin1009 -the Seeker 19:43, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Merry Christmast and a great 2015. Regards.—Ganímedes (talk) 17:50, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for advice. I check as soon as I can. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 21:13, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

Templates...[edit]

Hallo Anna Smile

I have the same problem with the templates : December/January don't accept 2014/2015 and I don't know how to write December 2014/January 2015.

In the French version they are written in English, not in French...

Have a happy end of year lol. --Llann .\m/ (Lie 2 me ...) 18:41, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

Hello Llann,
I'm just trying to prepare the January theme and looking for a solution to the template problem - but only if I find something soon, as I'm not at home at the moment... ;->
Hope you're also enjoying the end of year, Anna reg (talk) 18:44, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
It'll be better if we could have some snow so I won't ski...
If it's only a question of month display it's not so urgent.
--Llann .\m/ (Lie 2 me ...) 22:19, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

Kora27...[edit]

Hallo Anna.

Kora27 has added two very similar pics ton "Bad weather". Could you please ask her in German to choose one (when you'll have time, no hurry)? Thanks a lot.

Grüsse. --Llann .\m/ (Lie 2 me ...) 17:27, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Translations[edit]

Hi, Anna. I'm not sure if "Outliers" has a direct translation to spanish (I think not). Can you explain me what is about to try to find a tranlation? Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 12:30, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

I forgot to ask: when you say "Household items in use" are you talkin about appliances? Thanks. --Ganímedes (talk) 12:33, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for answering only now - a combination of holidays and computer problems is keeping me away from the internet (perhaps not always a bad thing... ? ;->).
  1. About Outliers - Teles translated it to Black Sheep in Portuguese (see our talk here) - it's perhaps not really a translation in the strict sense of the word, but hopefully conveys the same meaning...
  2. About Household items - as the second sentence and the sample images show, Colin was thinking of everyday objects used at home - including but not limited to household appliances (yes, washing mashines, dishwashers, toasters, hair-dryers,... etc are included, but so are pencils, sewing pins, cookie cutters,...) - I hope that explanation helps...
Best wishes and thanks for your help, Anna reg (talk) 13:46, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
Hi, sorry, I just read this today. Please, answer in my TP or link my name to be notified of the message. About challenge, I've translated "outlier" as "one different of the rest" and "appliances..." so if you link me the page I fix the translations. Thanks a lot for your work. --Ganímedes (talk) 15:58, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
Ganímedes, you have the links here... do you need something else? ;->
"one different than the rest" is probably okay, even though the English word allows for more than one being different - but appliances should be changed to include other items as well...
Best wishes, Anna reg (talk) 16:11, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
The most straightforward translation of "outlier" is anomalía o excepción (an outlier is not always a black sheep), although there might be other possibilities such as valor atípico, valor anormal or even valor extremo. However, I do think anomalía or excepción are neutral translations that can be used here (provided that you also translate the rest of the sentence, to give it context). However, I haven't been able to find the link to update it. Could you please tell me where I can provide the translation? Best regards --Discasto talk | contr. | es.wiki analysis 16:55, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Anna and Discasto. I think link is this [1]. Thanks, --Ganímedes (talk) 17:33, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Oh, I didn't understand that you were talking about the watchlist messages... Ganímedes, Discasto, if you are both fine with the new Spanish translation, I'd suggest copying the Spanish code below (including the | es = ) and asking one of the administrators looking after the watchlist messages to actualise the translation (editing the old post can be a bit confusing and is less easily seen). --Anna reg (talk) 13:51, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

January translation[edit]

Hi Anna, I translated the text of the Outlier theme to Hungarian. I wish you a happy new year, Einstein2 (talk) 13:08, 30 December 2014 (UTC) Thanks, Einstein2! And a good year to you, too! Anna reg (talk) 13:57, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Sie können sicher sein Ich werde da sein[edit]

Zunächst einmal, ich entschuldige mich, wenn ich schreibe jeden Falsche. Ich bin sehr glücklich, geteilt haben dies geschah im Jahr 2014, mit einem guten Freund, wie du bist. Die gute Wunsch ist gegenseitig. Ich hoffe aufrichtig, ein gutes Jahr für Sie und Ihre Familie. Während Commons ist nur ein Ort der Entspannung und Erholung, fand ich sehr gute Freunde hier auch von Ihnen. Es ist eine große Freude, von einem guten Freund begleitet fühlen wie Sie, ich werde versuchen, auf gleicher Höhe sein, obwohl es schwierig sein wird, ebenso Sie, weil Sie zu allen Zeiten ein großartiges Beispiel für Würde und Höhe haben. --The Photographer (talk) 10:37, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Happy New Year Anna reg![edit]

Februar theme[edit]

hi Anna, bitte schau dir mal bei Gelegenheit die aktuellen Beispielbilder "Fine feathers make fine birds" an. Du kannst auch gerne nach Belieben austauschen, verändern, ergänzen. Vielen Dank vorab, LG Lesekreis (talk) 20:21, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Sicher, Lesekreis. Ich hab versucht, eine kurze Beschreibung zu verfassen - magst du da mal drüberschauen? Liebe Grüße, Anna reg (talk) 12:24, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Super - vielen Dank! Ich habe noch ein bisschen ergänzt - vielleicht zuviel - also, kannst gerne wieder kürzen ;-) Hoffenlich kommt das Thema an und interssiert auch die "Allgemeinheit" - gerade kam mir die Idee, dass es vielleicht doch speziell eher etwas für Frauen ist... LG und schönen Tag 13:59, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Ich glaub, dass auch schon männliche Fotographen um mehr personenbezogene Wettbewerbe gebeten haben - und Masken/Verkleidungen photographieren ist glaub ich kein Frauenthema - fein machen dagegen vielleicht schon... ;->
Jetzt müssen wir nur noch das zweite Thema fixieren und dann können wir die Seiten vorbereiten & übersetzen... Anna reg (talk) 10:59, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
Wow - du hast wunderbare Beispielfotos für das Thema "curves and spirals" gefunden und zusammengestellt! Vorher konnte ich gar nicht so viel damit anfangen. ;-) Was machen wir nun mit unserer Kostümierung? Ändern wir den Namen in "dressed up" oder schließen wir uns der Mehrheit an und einigen uns auf "black and white"? Ich finde beide Themen durchaus spannend. LG Lesekreis (talk) 23:05, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Danke. Die 'besten Bilder'-Links sind teilweise praktisch... (FP, QI, VI einer Kategorie anzeigen lassen) ;->
Zu den Themen bin ich etwas unentschlossen - ich würde sagen, 'Curves and spirals' ist fix - als zweites muss ich ja zugeben, dass ich nach wie vor die Kostümierung 'Black and White' vorziehen würde... - ich mag den (leichten) Zeitbezug - auch wenn Colin mit den Übersetzungsschwierigkeiten beim Namen wohl recht hat... ich bin mir nur nicht sicher, ob Dressed up besser wäre - Herausputzen/Kostümierung auf Deutsch? Die anderen Themen sind alle interessant, es wirkt für mich aber keines von Ihnen dringend (ich glaube, ich würde Black and White fallen lassen - das kommt sicher wieder. Die Mehrheitsentscheidung ist aber eigentlich andersherum...
Vielleicht hast du mit deinem Frauenthema recht... ;->
Wenn du entscheiden magst, freu ich mich... (und nachdem du dir eines der Themen aussuchen darfst, musst du dich nicht unbedingt der Mehrheit beugen). Lg, Anna reg (talk) 13:00, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Kora, twice...[edit]

Hallo Anna.

Could you please ask Kora27 in a language she can understand to choose one of her 6 last entries ? For me they are too similar... File:Endlose Treppe bei KPMG in München..jpg to File:Endlose Treppe bei KPMG in München (Detail)..jpg12 orig.jpg.

Thanks a lot Smile. Have a nice end of week. --Llann .\m/ (Lie 2 me ...) 00:00, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Sure - just ✓ done. I also asked her to try to restrict the number of entries to at the most 10 - Best wishes, Anna reg (talk) 08:51, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Cosplayers or storefronts ???[edit]

Should we let users submitt dressed-up "dummies" (I don't know the right word) : this one or this other ? I don't think the topics allows that ; only for people should be better : a dummy coud be dressed-up in a store just to sell some clothes so it's not the festive view of the theme.

May be I should ask that on the talk page... --Llann .\m/ (Lie 2 me ...) 15:55, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
As we added accessories (masks, headgear, hairstyles, wigs or make-up), I'm not sure if people are necessary to fit the theme... I'd be fine with them - it doesn't seem as if we'll get too many entries in this one...
Best wishes, Anna reg (talk) 16:20, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
In the sample images we don't have dummies... It's easier to shot storefronts (happyly some are awsome) then chasing cosplayers... Let's see the numbers of entries but that doesn't please me.
Whatever, I paste this on the challenges'TK. --Llann .\m/ (Lie 2 me ...) 02:46, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Hello Ganímedes! You are the first to open the theme discussion this month - I'll move your reminder to the photo challenge talk page to involve others too - all the more as I'm swamped with RL at the moment and fear that I won't have much time to help with the organisation of next months challenges...

Commons:Photo challenge translation - May[edit]

Hi Anna, thanks for the new links! I added Italian translation. I also fixed "Entries" section number order for new challenges. Check it out. New translations and new templates seem to work fine. I think we are doing a good work! Thanks. --FRacco (talk) 12:37, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Anna,

The Commons:Photo challenge/2015 - May - Panoramas isn't clear. It talks of a "wide field of view" and links to the wiki article that only really discusses horizontal panoramas. Yet you have two examples of vertical panoramas and one of a 360-degree. One common definition of a panorama is having a 2:1 aspect ratio (or narrower), otherwise we might get into arguments about how wide/tall it should be. The 360 is, of course, not really measurable in that way. Perhaps

The new challenge features Panoramas (Panoramic photography): wide or tall images having an aspect ratio of 2:1 or greater, and also 360° panoramas.

Bonjour Anna, je veux changer le sens d'une phrase en espagnol sur la page Commons:Desafío fotográfico des 2 défis ouverts en juillet 2015 mais je ne peux pas éditer, en anglais il s'agit de la phrase "Photographs must be newly uploaded to Commons during the challenge submission period i.e. July 2015 UTC (but may have been taken earlier)."
Je ne sais pas où trouver le moyen de changer. Merci de ta réponse ou commentaire.--Doalex (talk) 18:45, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
Bonjour Doalex,
tu peux trouver la phrase dans le template {{Photo challenge rules}} qui est utilisé dans la plupart des défi et contient un peu de code. Mais si ce que tu veux changer ne concerne pas la date, ça ne devrait pas etre un problème.
J'espére que ça t'aide... Anna reg (talk) 20:35, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
✓ Done
Dankeschön. --Doalex (talk) 08:27, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

Re: Commons:Photo challenge translations - July[edit]

Hi Anna reg,

it's no problem, haha. I'd love to be part of the team of translators! It is a pleasure. Thank you for adding me there. And I'll be glad to help again next month. See you, Mateus S. Figueiredo (talk) 18:30, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Name of Rosa cultivars[edit]

Hi Anna!

Could you please help out... is there an agreement of which cultivar name to use on Wikimedia? Personally I would prefer the actually cultivar name (or registration name) as this one is unique and global... AND redirect from, more or less, local trade and exhibition names. What is the prefered action here? Uleli (talk) 21:25, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Hello Uleli,
we tried to define some rules here - even if I immediately see some things that should probably be changed when I look at it now... registration names I find problematic are those consisting mainly of numbers - in those cases I would rather use the oldest trading name. If we use those number-names too, category and gallery redirects become important, as if people know the cultivar name of the rose they photographed (which already is a minority), they normally know trade/exhibition names. Which is why I think that common cultivar names should have a gallery linking the correct cultivar page (including a Not to be confused with Rosa 'same trade name' when necessary...
Hope that answers your question.

Re: Commons:Photo challenge for September[edit]

Thanks for the opportunity. Being fairly new at this, I am not sure what has been historically. I would like to think that the photo challenges would be to document our world. Have you ever done insects or fossils?

Wingerham52 (talk) 16:01, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Hello Wingerham52,
great to hear from you so soon!
We had Flowers and insects in May 2014, but nothing about fossils so far. The photo challenges aren't that old - we started only in December 2013. Here is a list of all challenges done so far - while the winners are archived chronologically on this page.
Hope that helps!

I was thinking in light of the news that ISIS destroyed an ancient temple in Syria, that there should be a photo challenge to record historical places. Most of the work I do in Wikipedia is documenting historical places and structures and you wouldn't believe how many are destroyed. Some there are no pictures of them. Lost to history. In Michigan, USA, where I live a very historical church was destroyed a couple of months ago in a tornado. Luckily, one of my fellow wikipedians had documented it. So, we will always know what it looks like.

Hello Wingerham52,
well, in September there is Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM), but it seems as if the USA are not participating this year. I just checked and that's good to keep in mind, as I was afraid of having to similar contests at the same time...
Best wishes, Anna reg (talk) 20:18, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
No problem about august. I've seen it and changed, no problem. I take care of september. Thanks for all your work. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 01:16, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Previos challenge[edit]

Dear Anna, I also overlooked translation of the August challenges. Do you know where I can go to still make the translation? Thanks! Mykola Swarnyk (talk) 04:38, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

I did it. Some parts are still in English and Russian, but I dont know where they are stored. Mykola Swarnyk (talk) 05:34, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Hello Mykola,
I just saw that you found {{Photo challenge theme/i18n/Reptiles and Amphibians}} and {{Photo challenge theme/i18n/Personal Protective Equipment}} (which can be found by using the category Photo challenge theme templates) - I changed the title back to English as that should be automatically translated. Can you tell me which parts you don't find?

Re: Commons:Photo challenge translations - September[edit]

Thank you for the links. For me, it is much better to do the translations before the start of the challenges, so I'm glad you sent me the links at the end of the month instead of the beginning of the next month. Is there anywhere I can find the future themes, once they've been decided, so that you don't have to send me them all the time? Mateus S. Figueiredo (talk) 19:32, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Hello Mateus,
you can find the theme discussion and the results on commons talk:photo challenge - normally in a section called e.g. September themes. But it's always a bit difficult to get a decision - and the themes are therefore often only decided at the very end of the month. As I also prefer to have the translations ready before the submissions start (I am normally translating to German), I try to keep the decision making process and the page creation going - but as I finished my studies this year and therefore have quite a few changes in real life going on, I'm not sure how constant my involvement will be this year (I was hardly involved in July and August - for the first time since January 2014... ;->).
As long as I do find the time, I'll notify the translators, as my experience is that not all of them are watching the talk page - even though the team we have (I have the names collected here) is really great: constant & quick in translating the pages into more than ten languages
Posting the links to you won't be more work in that case, but as I can't promise I'll manage to do that in the future (though I'll try), it would be great if you can have an eye on the talk page - if you are motivated, you are welcome to remind everybody when it's time to decide on the next themes! ;->
I hope my somewhat long answer to your simple question explains our chaotic system without scaring you off! ;->
