Commons Conference project[edit]


I'm writing you as one of the most active Commons users right now. Since a while now, the idea of a dedicated Commons conference has been floating around. But since the last Wikimania concrete steps have been taken to actually make it happen next year. If you're interested in participation or maybe willing to help organize the first ever Commons Conference, I invite you to check out the project page and leave your comments; or just show your support for the idea, by signing up.

Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 national nominations[edit]

@Gnangarra: I'm following up to make sure you have everything you need for your jury to start voting on the photos. I see that your campaign is ready, but round 1 has not been created in montage yet. If you have any question or there is something we can help you with, please ping me. Also, please remember that the deadline for submitting AU's nominations to the international team is October 31, 2017. This is a strict deadline. Thanks! :) --LilyOfTheWest (talk) 18:52, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi Lily we started over night and will be completed before the deadline. Gnangarra 06:19, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 jury[edit]

Hi @Gnangarra:, just by way of introduction, I am the international jury coordinator for Wiki Loves Monuments 2017, so I will be overseeing the international jury process over the coming weeks. I am writing because we have been looking through Montage, and it appears that you are the only person listed on the Australian jury. The competition rules state that local juries must have a minimum of three members, so we are reaching out to you now to get a better understanding of what your situation is and if we can somehow help to rectify the situation, if necessary. I am adding LilyOfTheWest to this conversation for her reference. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you --Nevborg (talk) 21:01, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

Montage is just a tool, there is nothing to rectify. first pass eliminates those images that dont meet the basic size, information requirements, copyright, or any other rule criteria some of which montage does the rest I do as its all Wikiverse issues. Then judging is done as a collective sitting in one room by skilled photographers who arent Wikimedians no need to have multiple logins, this year doing a 1 through 5 sort, we then did a review of those rated 4 & 5, sadly there were very few 5s after that those still rated 5 are reviewed creating the final 10. The biggest issue we had was with the tool and not being able to close off rounds to record each step of the process, with the final selections being done external to montage and me just using montage after the event to keep the 10 as a group that can then be extracted by the international jury secondary to that was the ratio of what could be called good images(ones that would pass COM:QIC). Gnangarra 00:03, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Hi @Gnangarra: thank you for the clarification. If I understood correctly (and please correct me if I misunderstood), you are saying that the judging was done collectively, with only yourself accessing and logging results in Montage. Could you confirm that there were at least 3 judges forming part of this jury process? May I also ask you to kindly follow the instructions here in order to formally submit your photos? Please let me know if you have any questions or further clarifications. --Nevborg (talk) 10:54, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
done, may I suggest in the future the jury tool get modified to provide this information, or even have a button to submit directly to the International section rather than wasting time with emails Gnangarra 11:24, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

Error 404 on your video[edit]


your medium File:Autonomous bus trials South Perth - 3.ogv produces a 404 (not found) error when trying to play it. Since the transcoding log shows a failure back in April I assume it is not a recent problem. Maybe you want to re-upload the medium. -- Renardo la vulpo (talk) 21:25, 28 December 2017 (UTC)

A request for a translation[edit]


I have a quick question for you. I am about to edit Wikidata and would like to know how to translate "Village in China" into Tartar language. Thanks in advance. Artix Kreiger (talk) 18:05, 17 February 2018 (UTC) --B dash (talk) 02:25, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
