Hi I have seen that you have made a lot of categorization work recently. You may like "Hot Cat" and "Cat-a-lot" that can be activated through Preferences -> Gadgets. --Zolo (talk) 07:24, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks very much. Although I'm very active as a content contributor on English Wikipedia, I'm still figuring out the Commons categorization system, so I'm concerned that I've done some questionable things in trying to learn. I'm mainly motivated by my experiences in looking for images to illustrate specific kinds of content. So I appreciate the tip, and if I seem not to be following up, it's because I'm getting some kind of personal benefit plodding through manually and individually browsing the images. Thanks again.

- Yes, thanks! Sorry for the goof. I saw others that were "sidewise" because they were on the ground, but hadn't realized I'd been careless in looking at that one. It would've been nice to have the photo taken from an angle that presented the inscription with conventional reading orientation. Cynwolfe (talk) 22:08, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
Hi Cynwolfe, regarding your query, the image is bit complex because two separate copyrights are involved: 1) the sculpture itself and 2) the photograph thereof (COM:DW deals with the concept). Accordingly, we need to have evidence that both copyrights are released with a free license, which, you're correct, does indeed mean that commercial use must be allowed. That said, if Eaton is indeed the license holder for both, an email from him is all that is needed to resolve the issue. He may email directly or you may forward correspondence to firstname.lastname@example.org. COM:OTRS has details about the process, expectations, verbiage, etc. Given that his website is www.scott-eaton.com, it would be optimal if he used a @scott-eaton.com address (as anyone can register for gmail, hotmail, etc. addresses). Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Эlcobbola talk 01:13, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
- Hi Cynwolfe, I don't like to fragment conversations, so I've responded on my talk page (I responded here initially because you requested me to do so, but I think it would be best to use one location going forward). Эlcobbola talk 14:58, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you.

- Thank you. I don't always feel comfortable editing at Commons, as I'm insufficiently informed of policies and procedures. But I do try to help with categorization, and to correct errors when I see them. Cynwolfe (talk) 20:19, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
- It looks like you're doing a pretty good job. If you weren't, you'd probably have a talkpage full of complaints. ;) INeverCry 20:23, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.
Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.
For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.
Round 1 will end on .
