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

tête carrée[edit]

J'ai entendu "tète carrée" dans cette audio-là. Vous ne prononcez pas "tight carrée" ? 198.105.116.225 01:05, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Please do not delete pages on Commons without explicit local consensus[edit]

Hi Pathoschild—it's been brought to my attention that you are deleting pages from Commons, even though you are not a community-approved administrator. As you might know, Commons has opted out of the global sysop wikis, and we don't like it when non-locally elected functionaries perform admin actions here.

Commons is a huge wiki, with over 250 local administrators, and we can easily help you with deleting local JS and CSS pages. Therefore, I ask that you please stop deleting such pages on Commons, and request approval from the local community if you'd like to continue doing so; Commons:Village pump is a good place to start. Thank you! odder (talk) 11:17, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Pathos for helping Commons users! --Nemo 11:20, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Hello Odder. Synchbot will no longer delete pages on Commons; instead it will place {{speedy delete}} with a message like "speedy deletion criteria U1: no longer needed (requested by ExampleUser)". Let me know if there's a different template or message you'd prefer. —Pathoschild 14:26:14, 05 September 2014 (UTC)
@Pathoschild: No, this is great! Thank you for the speedy response. odder (talk) 17:41, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Machine-readable markup for languages/language names in Commons i18n templates[edit]

Hi Pathoschild! I am trying to come up with a machine-readable standard for i18n in Commons templates such as {{en}} or {{LangSwitch}} so that CommonsMetadata can parse them correctly (right now it returns something like English: <english text> in some cases). I would appreciate your input at Commons talk:Machine-readable data#Machine-readable markup for languages/language names. --Tgr (WMF) (talk) 00:26, 18 December 2014 (UTC)


Code issues in User:David0811/monobook.js[edit]

Hi Pathoschild, I am a bored bot (this is kind of a computer program) that is watching the recent changes and tapping buttons like I did now.

Curious about the reason? Possibly not but I will tell you anyway:

  1. You edited User:David0811/monobook.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 4 new jshint issues -- the page's status is now having warnings. Note that invalid or ambiguous code often has unwanted side effects like breaking other tools for you. If you cannot find out how to fix it, I suggest blanking the page for now.
  3. To help you understanding where the issues are, I have aggregated a report here and now. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask users experienced in javascript writing for help. But do not ask the bot's operators (chronically overwrought) unless you suspect an error of mine. If you prefer not getting spammed by me, you can opt-out reports by adding {{ValidationOptOut|type=all}} to your user page. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!

This is a pretty useful bot. In this case I was just restoring the previous version before deleting it via Synchbot. —Pathoschild 00:53:21, 06 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks; if you have any suggestions on how to improve it, let me know. -- Rillke(q?) 12:47, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
