File:Eurasian Spoonbill.jpg[edit]

Hi Merops. Magst du die Erstversion des Fotos nicht unter einem neuen Namen hochladen? --Leyo 09:16, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

WArum? Merops (talk) 13:40, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
Weil es ein komplett anderes Foto ist und ansonsten nicht eingebunden werden kann. --Leyo 08:58, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
I have split out the original as File:Eurasian Spoonbill-2.jpg; it is a worthwhile photo in its own right (probably the second-best Spoonbill pic on Commons, after this one!) - MPF (talk) 15:41, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
Eurasian Spoonbill.jpg

Hello! I'm Calandrella, I'm an amateur photographer, a bird-watcher and a frequent contributor to Wikimedia projects, mostly Wikipedia and Commons. While voting for this year's Picture of the Year, I found your photograph of a Eurasian Spoonbill - and I must say that it's absolutely stunning! This brilliant image is of extremely high value for Wikimedia and the world, and thus, I would like to express my greatest gratitude for you contributing this image. Danke schön! :-) Kindest regards, Calandrella (talk) 16:04, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Location?[edit]

Hi Merops - many of your photos such as this one File:Aythya-fuligula Tufted-Duck.jpg are lacking location information: this is far more important than listing its name in 20 languages! Can you add photo locations to those images lacking them, please? - Thanks - MPF (talk) 21:58, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

That's a lot of work. Is there any tool on commons that makes it easier? Merops (talk) 09:15, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
http://tools.freeside.sk/geolocator/geolocator.html kennst Du? --Emha (talk) 10:32, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
Danke!, Nein kannte ich noch nicht!Merops (talk) 07:50, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
Noch einfacher ist ein Rechtsklick in Google Maps. Der Untermenüpunkt "Was ist hier?" zeigt die Koordinaten mit Komma getrennt, die man direkt in das Location Dec Tag
{{Location dec|48.945987|11.359127|region:DE-HE_heading:E}}
kopieren kann. Dann muss man nur noch das Komma durch | ersetzen und die Region eintragen mit Blickrichtung.HeinrichStuerzl (talk) 07:55, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
Danke! (Wie hats du nur diese Diskussion gefunden fragt sich-->)Merops (talk) :-)
Über dieses Bild: Amöneburg_water_mill.jpg HeinrichStuerzl (talk) 22:07, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! Lots of work, but very definitely worthwhile ;-) Doesn't need to be a {{Location}} tag, a place name (like "Texel, Netherlands" on your Spoonbill pic) is fine if that's easier - MPF (talk) 14:40, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
Any progress? ;-) Two more, one a featured pic, needing locations please: File:Sardinian Warbler Sylvia melanocephala.jpg, File:Sardinian Warbler.jpg - thanks! MPF (talk) 17:27, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

File:Charadrius hiaticula He.jpg[edit]

Hi Merops - just to let you know, I'm splitting the various uploads of this out as separate images, as the older ones (even though much smaller than the newest one) are still worth keeping as separate pics. When I'm done, I'll list all the filenames here, and will instruct commons delinker to use the newest high resolution pic in all of the wikipedias it is currently in. - MPF (talk) 09:16, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Here they are - File:Charadrius hiaticula tundrae Varanger.jpg (11:13, 11 July 2011 version), and File:Charadrius hiaticula He1.jpg (18:43, 25 May 2008 version). I didn't reupload the versions from earlier on 25 May 2008 as they would have been near-duplicates of File:Ringed-Plover 2.jpg. - MPF (talk) 09:57, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

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. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

WLE: File:Helgoland Düne Winter.jpg[edit]

Hallo, kannst du bei diesem Foto vielleicht Koordinaten eintragen oder die genaue Lage anderweitig beschreiben? Von Helgoland und der Düne (Landfläche) liegen nämlich nur ganz bestimmte Teile in Schutzgebieten. Gruß Holger1959 (talk) 18:28, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Ich habs nachgetragen, ich glaube der Teil nicht. Gruß Merops (talk) 09:02, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
danke! ich geh Mal davon aus dass die Schutzgebietsgrenzlinien, die ich mir angucken kann, genauso genau sind wie deine Koordinaten, dann liegts im FFH-Gebiet. So 100m weiter wärs draußen, und noch 100m weiter wärs wieder drin… ziemliche Eierlinie da, vermutlich wegen des Flughafens. Außerdem, Düne ist Düne ;) der Sand wandert eh weiter.

Wiki Loves Earth 2014 - Ein Wiki-Beitrag für den Naturschutz[edit]

WLE-Deutschland-2014.jpg

Hallo Merops,

vor einer Woche endete der zweimonatige Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Earth. Du hast daran aktiv teilgenommen und wir möchten Dir dafür herzlich danken.

Mit rund 14.500 Fotos hat Deutschland einen Anteil von 20 % an diesem internationalen Projekt erbracht, an dem sich 15 Länder beteiligten. Sehr erfreulich ist die hohe Zahl an 729 Teilnehmern allein in Deutschland. Einen Überblick zu den Fotos und Teilnehmern findest du auf unserer WLE-Projektseite.

Gegenwärtig ist die deutsche Jury dabei, diesen wertvollen Fotobestand zu geschützten Naturlandschaften und Naturdenkmalen zu sichten. An diesem Wochenende wird in Hamburg die entscheidende Jury-Sitzung stattfinden. Wir wünschen auch Dir mit Deinem Foto-Beitrag dabei viel Glück und Erfolg.

Der nächste Fotowettbewerb steht bereits vor der Tür. Im September findet nun schon zum vierten Mal der Wettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments statt, wo die Kulturdenkmale im Vordergrund stehen. Doch du musst mit dem Fotografieren nicht bis zum September warten. Vielleicht kannst du den Sommer nutzen um entsprechend den offiziellen Denkmallisten geeignete Motive aufzuspüren. Ebenso kannst du gerne dabei helfen, die hochgeladenen Fotos zu kategorisieren oder in Wikipedia-Artikel und Listen einzubinden.

Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Viel Spaß dabei wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

( Bernd Gross, 11. Juli 2014)

Herzlichen Glückwunsch![edit]

Hallo Merops,

Du hast beim Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Earth 2014 in Deutschland teilgenommen, wofür wir Dir herzlich danken. Ohne jeden einzelnen Teilnehmer, ohne jedes einzelne Bild wäre Wiki Loves Earth nicht so erfolgreich. Mit den vielen neuen Bildern können jetzt einerseits zahlreiche Wikipedia-Artikel bebildert werden, andererseits schaffen sie Anreize, neue Inhalte zu erstellen, die sich mit ihnen illustrieren lassen.

Von den mehr als 14.000 eingesandten Bildern hat die Jury eines oder mehrere von Dir in die deutschen Top 100 gewählt.

Das Ergebnis mit den Top 100 ist hier einzusehen: Wikipedia:Wiki_Loves_Earth_2014/Deutschland/Top100

Die ersten zehn wurden schon für den internationalen Ausscheid gemeldet: Wiki_Loves_Earth_2014_winners#Germany

Es war der erste Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Earth in Deutschland und wir als Jury sind vom Erfolg überwältigt. Daher würden wir uns sehr freuen, wenn Du dich nächstes Mal erneut beteiligen würdest!

Herzlichen Glückwunsch von der Jury und vielen Dank für Deine Unterstützung! --Indeedous (talk) 12:39, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 startet in Kürze[edit]

LUSITANA WLM 2011 d.svg

Hallo Merops,

in Kürze ist es wieder soweit. Der nun schon traditionelle Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments wird im September zum vierten Mal stattfinden. In ähnlicher Form hatte unlängst der Wettbewerb "Wiki Loves Earth" eine erfolgreiche Premiere. Zu allen bisherigen vier Wettbewerben haben seit 2011 gut 3000 unterschiedliche Teilnehmer (User) ihren Beitrag geleistet. Du warst dabei, und bist auch herzlich eingeladen, am bevorstehenden WLM-Wettbewerb wieder dabei zu sein.

Allein in Deutschland wurden in den letzten drei Jahren im Rahmen von WLM rund 100.000 Fotos zu den insgesamt ca. 850.000 Kulturdenkmalen bundesweit hochgeladen. Jährlich haben sich mehrere Hundert Wiki-Fotographen daran beteiligt. Auch im kommenden Denkmalmonat wird dies gewiss wieder der Fall sein. Der Tag des offenen Denkmals am 14. September bietet bundesweit vielfältige Möglichkeiten, Denkmale nicht nur von außen, sondern auch von innen zu fotografieren. Denkmallisten sind dabei ein wichtiger Orientierungspunkt und zugleich auch Ziel der Einbindung der Fotos. Auch in diesem Jahr sind wieder neue Denkmallisten hinzugekommen, die hilfreich bei der Planung von individuellen oder Gruppen-Fototouren sind und auf eine Bebilderung warten, wie z.B. zu Görlitz oder Zittau. Unter den Landeshauptstädten fehlt nur noch Stuttgart. Aber auch hier ist Licht in Sicht.

In der Mitte Deutschlands hat die Denkmallandschaft der thüringischen Landeshauptstadt Erfurt nun das Licht der Wikipedia-Welt entdeckt. Mehr als 50 Tabellen enthalten 3.700 Denkmale. Allein die wunderschön restaurierte Altstadt umfasst 1.800 Denkmale. Eine von WMDE geförderte WLM-Fototour nach Erfurt am Wochenende vom 29. – 31. August lädt herzlich ein, diese einzigartige Kulturlandschaft zu dokumentieren. Mehr Informationen findest Du auf der Projektseite.

Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Viel Spaß beim größten Fotowettbewerb der Wiki(m/p)edia wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

( Bernd Gross, 16. August 2014)
