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 »

You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.

Heads up on current controversy over no-source tags on U.S. military emblem image pages[edit]

You should probably pay attention to no-source tags added to the pages of images you're improving the description of, since it can result in the images being abruptly deleted. If you have anything to contribute in the relevant section of Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems, feel free... AnonMoos (talk) 14:25, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

United States Air Force emblems[edit]

Hi, the deleted files that @Ellin Beltz: shared with me are at You can comment against images there as you please. If we find out enough, then an UNDEL might work.

It would be interesting if we could have a way of "officially" moving images to a all-rights-reserved project that were worth researching further after deletion, or when requested in a DR, and there were no special concerns about copyright such as known DMCA requests or similar.

As an example, I just added two links to - are these enough for an UNDEL? A simple Google Image search shows these links. -- (talk) 16:06, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Here is an official site that has the 37th Comptroller and Mission Support Squadron emblems: 026-050 NUMERIC UNIT DESIGNATIONS Most of the other 37th units (and some of the same) can be found at Art 5 and following pages or at Squadrons and Flights. Probably better to use an official site as a source than a LinkedIn page, I would think.
Most current emblems can be found on The Institute of Heraldry's site, Air Force Historical Research Agency's site or the site for the current station of the unit, but USAF has completely changed their servers twice in the past five to ten years and some of these may no longer be available. I have also recently run into pages from the National Archives that display emblems approved in 1996, 1997 and 1998. --Lineagegeek (talk) 19:52, 14 October 2016 (UTC)


Hi, Please do not do that. If there is an issue, please create a deletion request. Thanks, Yann (talk) 02:04, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, it seemed redundant to do so since the image was already up for deletion as lacking a source.

Welcome, Dear Filemover![edit]

Hi Lineagegeek, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{speedy}}. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.
