POTY barnstar.svg

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

Dear Laurel Lodged,

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.

Thanks,

File:College Green Easter 2016.jpg[edit]

I've moved and renamed this image to its correct identity. Easy mistake to make but College Green ends roughly where you took the image from, being a view of College Street. Ww2censor (talk) 13:12, 12 May 2017 (UTC)[]

Catholic vs Roman Catholic[edit]

Firstly, decisions made at English wikipedia are not binding at Commons. The two projects have different needs. Second, "(Roman) Catholic churches" and "buildings of the Roman Catholic Church" are not synonymous. The Catholic Church owns buildings other than churches. Third, the whole category tree is at Category:Roman Catholic churches. There's no reason that Ireland should be treated differently. If you don't like "Roman Catholic churches", please nominate the base category for discussion. - Themightyquill (talk) 07:15, 24 March 2020 (UTC)[]

1. While they not be binding, they have a high degree of authority in the wiki world. Since there are more eyes on the English wiki than are on Commons, it follows that the categorisation comes under more scrutiny and is therefore of better quality. We should reject wii precedents with great reluctance. 2. I fully agree that "(Roman) Catholic churches" and "buildings of the Roman Catholic Church" are not synonymous. It was to avoid that very error that I renamed some of the categories to more fully distinguish between buildings of the Catholic Church that happen to be church buildings versus other buildings of the Catholic Church (e.g. baptistries, bell towers, episcopal palaces). Your question precedes my work but not my thinking on this topic. I have just now created Category:Buildings and structures of the Catholic Church in Ireland to cater for the gap. 3. Now that the scheme has been demonstrated to be successful in a few counties, it is perhaps a good time to bring it to wider discussion. @Themightyquill: Laurel Lodged (talk) 17:44, 24 March 2020 (UTC)[]

Pubs in Dublin (City)[edit]

A category for pubs in Dublin City has already been created. There is no need to set the same category and split it up again. This project has taken me several months to complete. Can you please the Dublin City pubs back into Pubs in Dublin. Financefactz (talk) 15:32, 27 August 2020 (UTC)[]

@Financefactz: I agree that having both Category:Pubs in Dublin (city) and Category:Pubs in Dublin is superfluous. One of them needs to go. I think the one with the greater name precision should remain - Category:Pubs in Dublin (city). The Category:Pubs in Dublin cannot be merged into Category:Pubs in Dublin (city) just yet, however, as it has lots of pubs that are in the surrounding counties of Fingal, South Dublin and Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown. I have created categories for these counties and am in the process of dispersing the pubs among them. When this manual dispersion is complete, then Category:Pubs in Dublin may be deleted. I'd appreciate your help with that work. Thanks, Laurel Lodged (talk) 07:37, 28 August 2020 (UTC)[]
@Financefactz: I see that you blanked the contents of Category:Pubs in Dublin (city). That was improper and out of process. Please arrange to restore it. Laurel Lodged (talk) 08:13, 28 August 2020 (UTC)[]

There was already a Category:Pubs in County Dublin page in existence but you seem to have thought that Category:Pubs in Dublin related to the county. I have been working on this for a long long time and have create c.200 categories for individual pubs. Before re-categorising them into council areas I needed to identify where each pub was first. So far we had only made it through part of Fingal. I suggest rather than recategorize 200+pubs just leave them as Pubs in Dublin (which relates to the city). It is already a subcategory of Pubs in County Dublin to avoid any ambiguity. Financefactz (talk) 08:48, 28 August 2020 (UTC)[]

Happy with the tidy and the eventual move to Pubs in Dublin (City). thanks for helping out. Financefactz (talk) 14:13, 1 September 2020 (UTC)[]

Churches_and_monasteries_in_County_Cork (diff # 477250608)[edit]

Can you help me understand why my change was reverted? My thinking was that the redirected category would serve users better by redirecting to buildings and structures of all religions in Cork. Any insight appreciated. Thanks! --Donal.hunt (talk) 12:40, 1 October 2020 (UTC)[]

I came here to raise a similar point/question. And find this handy thread. As per Donal.hunt I can see absolutely no reason why Category:Churches in County Cork or Category:Churches and monasteries in County Cork would redirect specifically to the (sub)category for Protestant places of worship in the county. Not when there are other (less specific) cats available. And when, because of this redirection, at least a few RC churches had been miscategorised. Absent any logical explanation for this configuration, I have changed the relevant cat redirects. Guliolopez (talk) 18:05, 22 December 2020 (UTC)[]
