London underground[edit]

Hi,

Do you happen to have the London tube SVG for the full map?

There are SVGs only for Zone 1 and 2, and only a PNG for the full map.

Please link the SVG for the complete one if you happen to have it.


Thanks

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 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 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 . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Commons Conference project[edit]

Hello

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.

Cheers,

Per IRC discussion last night...[edit]

The relevant e-mail where it was claimed OGL and Creative Commons were not compatible is in OTRS Ticket#2017052210014402, mentioning this so that you have more detail, if needed I can dig out the entire e-mail exchange from my archive. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 09:44, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

The various e-mails in regard to BRB items ( I.e the Double arrows logo are in Ticket#2017052210016428 ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 09:49, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

It would be nice to have a definitive and clear position on this, as I will be posting a Batch Upload request shortly.ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 09:49, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

A concern was raised at s:Wikisource:Copyright_discussions#Chapter_8_of_Traffic_Signs_Manual., about OGL and CC-BY-SA 3.0 compatibility. As you were closely involved with OGL issues for a time, your comments would be appreciated. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 18:52, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Logo Partido Andalucista.svg[edit]

Hi JdForrester. Could you clarify your close to Commons:Deletion requests/File:Logo Partido Andalucista.svg? You kept the file because there was "no valid reason for deletion". The uploader tried to address the "lack of permission" issue by changing the license from "cc-by-sa-3.0" to "PD shape", but the uploader never did provide any explanation as to how this logo falls below the TOO for Spain. A I pointed out in the DR, "PD-shape" and "PD-textlogo" mean the file is too simple for copyright protection not only the US, but also in the country of origin (which in this case is Spain). While there are plenty of examples to suggest that this may be PD in the US, the US's TOO is comparitively low and so being PD in the US doesn't always mean PD in country of origin. If Spain's TOO is anything like the UK's, this logo would not be considered PD in Spain.

Anyway, there's no way to determine anything about Spain's TOO just from the DR; if, however, you have knowledge of it and wish to add it to the discussion, then maybe you can add that !vote/comment to the discussion itself instead of closing it. Political party logos are not automatically PD just because they are political party logos, so I think some clarification as to how this falls below Spain's TOO needs to be provided. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:47, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Original file re-licensed by the creator/uploader to PD-shape based on an existing basic logo which would almost certainly be considered below TOO in the comparable countries of France and Germany. Happy to be corrected if you can link to examples of legal decisions from Spanish courts, which would be more helpful than speculating in either direction. :-) James F.

That's fine and thanks for clarifying. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:32, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Of course. Sorry I didn't give more context at the time. James F. (talk) 04:38, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
