Euphorbia labatii[edit]

Hi Eric,

this is an excellent photo of a beautiful plant. More of this, please!!!

It would be nice if you could set the Category: Euphorbia to your Euphorbia photos while or after uploading. This category information will be deleted later when the photo is classified but seriously helps to find it. Best regards, Ies 15:52, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Image:Erica plukenetii.jpg[edit]

Hi Eric. Your pic of Image:Erica plukenetii.jpg is actually Erica abietina. I have moved it to the right spot, but perhaps you would rename and re-upload the original, cos its awfully confusing otherwise. Many thanks. Andrew massyn (talk) 19:39, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R2 Announcement[edit]

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of 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 were 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.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

PH-4

Ullucus, not Oca[edit]

Dear Eric, you uploaded (some years ago) a beautiful picture which is widely appreciated and used in several wiki's, but while the filename reads "Oxallis tuberosa" (despite the double "l", it suggests it is Oca) but the tubers in the pictures actually belong to Ullucus tuberosus, not to Oxalis tuberosa. Would you consider asking for renaming? --Lichinga (talk) 00:01, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
