Cartel Posadas[edit]

Hi Geogast, I renamed the file as per request. Actually the reason #4 says: To harmonize the file names of a set of images (so that only one part of all names differs), in other words, if an user is organizing the categories on Road signs and renaming the file might help, I can see it as a valid reason. If you're not happy with the renaming because it doesn't harmonizes anything, we can find a solution. But I don't see where the problem is because there is a redirect for the old name. --Ruthven (msg) 16:09, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

Hello again! As far as I understand, reason #4 is for a set of images, like the small icons that are shown in the example given. This renaming here is to have all images inside a category sorted by name. And this in the way the user wants it, every image beginning with "Cartel". Now, a lot of images are in several categories. What happens if another user wants this image's name to start with another word in order to have a different category sorted in the same way? Never ever I have seen all images in a category being renamed in order to have them sorted in such a specific way. To make it even worse: The image is wrongly put in the category we are talking about: it is not a road sign, but a train station sign.--Geogast (talk) 18:50, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
Now I see, that user Regions saw that the category was wrongly put, so he took the category away. But a minute later he un-did this change. I don't want to have an edit war with him. But it is really not thought through what es did. That is why I bother you ;-)--Geogast (talk) 18:55, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2015 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear Geogast,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth 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 (2015) 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. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.
