Hello, Pofka!
Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

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

Hi Pofka, there seems to be some problem with the new version of Martynas Gecevicius.jpg that you uploaded. The image seems to be stretched horizontally and it looks quite distorted. I've reverted to the original version for now. Regards, Jafeluv (talk) 13:33, 13 May 2013 (UTC)[]

Polish-Lithuanian coins[edit]

Thank you for uploading all those Polish-Lithuanian coins to the Wikimedia Commons, they look amazing. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 17:42, 2 October 2021 (UTC)[]

@Donald Trung: They really are. :) Moreover, Grand Duchy of Lithuania often had its own coins which were different from the Polish ones, thus I believe the exclusively Lithuanian coins are much rarer (e.g. those with the Columns of Gediminas because as far as I know the Polish coins never used this exclusively Lithuanian symbol; or those which feature only the horseman without the Polish eagle). :) -- Pofka (talk) 13:46, 3 October 2021 (UTC)[]
The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth had a lot of regions. My favourite of your uploads in this category is actually a coin from the Duchy of Courland and Semigallia. Face-smile.svg --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 13:59, 3 October 2021 (UTC)[]
@Donald Trung: These are even rarer. :) Duchy of Courland and Semigallia belonged to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. :)

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2018 is open![edit]

POTY barnstar.svg

Dear Pofka,

You are receiving this message because we noticed that you voted in R1 of the 2018 Picture of the Year contest, but not yet in the second round. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2018) 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 the final (and current) round, you may vote for a maximum of three images. The image with the most votes will become the Picture of the Year 2018.

Round 2 will end 17 March 2019, 23:59:59.

Click here to vote now!

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee 18:04, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

About your ping[edit]

Hello Pofka, I want to specify that I am on a holiday again, until 28 July, so I won't be able to reply to your report until then, but I don't have much to add as I have not had too much interaction with the user on this Wikimedia project and the one I've had wouldn't be worth of a report. I'd rather discuss with him our differences here as we did on Wikidata, considering they aren't as big as in other places. Super Dromaeosaurus (talk) 16:02, 25 July 2021 (UTC)[]
