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 »

English length units graph[edit]

You recently added annotation to this diagram questioning its accuracy for poppyseed, line, Roman mile and nautic mile. The former three have been taken from the then current version of en:English unit. The term “nautic” was a compromise due to space constraints, if I remember correctly. — Christoph Päper 14:35, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

You probably mean en:English units but regardless you either misread your source or they were faulty. That whole image should probably just be scrapped in favor of one of the accurate versions. — LlywelynII 14:25, 14 April 2015 (UTC)


Hello LlywelynII,

You are now Filemover. Please read carefully Commons:File renaming before using the tool. -- Geagea (talk) 01:23, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Fun. Thanks. — LlywelynII 01:25, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Self-parent categories[edit]

Hello LlywelynII,

You have added the book category to authors category (Category:Harry Fenn, Category:Charles William Wilson). It makes problem of self-parent categories. -- Geagea (talk) 01:48, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

That doesn't make any sense and neither of those people are authors.
If you're trying to say that I added the artist and editor to the Category:Picturesque Palestine... and that I added the work to the Category:Harry Fenn and CWW... Yes, I did. And that's not a problem: they should interlink. Do not remove the categories, pending a specific link to a specific policy supporting your desire to remove helpful information from these pages. — LlywelynII 02:38, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
The correct way is to add the name of the author/artist/etc. to the book category. You can not add the book name to the author/artist/etc. One is parent category and the other is child category. -- Geagea (talk) 02:47, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
I could already grok that that's like your opinion, man. If you actually want people to take it as anything else, kindly point to the actual policy to that effect. I can add the book category to the editor and artist's pages and should, as it's more helpful to have them interlinked, regardless of how that affects your personal theories of category incestuousness. If there's actual policy otherwise, kindly link to it. — LlywelynII 05:39, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
Please see Commons:Categories#Principles: Hierarchic principle: ... There should be no cycles (i.e. a category should not contain itself, directly or indirectly).. And it is not much helpful as Category:Harry Fenn already contain the list of the books inside the category. There is no need to categorized with the same categories. -- Geagea (talk) 17:17, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
Well, I can disagree but, yup, that's policy. Fixed and thanks for your patience and civility. — LlywelynII 01:42, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

File:Orthographic T&O.png[edit]

Not entirely sure what the point of your annotations to that image is. The lengthwise axes of the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea are not at a 90° angle to each other, so in any attempt to approximate a geographically accurate view of the earth to T&O format, something's got to give... AnonMoos (talk) 17:51, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

The Red Sea gives, not the Mediterranean, as shown by the numerous medieval T and O maps that already had the Red Sea at an angle but never deviate as to the proper orientation of the Mediterranean. — LlywelynII 00:08, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
Geographically-detailed maps did so, but abstract diagrams did not, and it's the abstract diagrams which have an actual "T". The term "T and O" map would appear to be a slight misnomer when applied to circular northern-hemisphere mappamundi with East at top which don't actually have a real "T" structure. So I don't really see the purpose of your image annotations... AnonMoos (talk) 10:36, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
Based on your observation, you don't see the point of that file at all. My comments are for those editors who do. You're welcome to browse elsewhere or pay them no mind. — LlywelynII 13:26, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
