Hello, Polda18!

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.

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 »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

commons:Photo challenge-translations[edit]

Hello Polda18,
I noticed your Czech Watchlist Message yesterday and just saw that you also translated the entire Photo challenge main page - if you are interested, I can give you the links for the remaining photo challenge pages we are translating - if I'm not mistaken, that means three pages that have to be translated once and of course the challenge descriptions, which have to be done every month (normally about two to three sentences for as many challenges during the last/first days of a month).
Best wishes, Anna reg (talk) 09:16, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

@Anna reg: I was looking to the challenge pages and saw only the main page translatable. If the translation option was added forth to subsections, then I would be happy to translate also the remaining pages. Thank you :) — Polda18 (talk pagecontributions) 12:04, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Hello Polda18,
Sorry for the late answer, somehow I missed yours (perhaps you were two quick for me ;->). I'll give you the links for March, as that's what we are preparing at the moment
I hope, I didn't miss anything... ;->
Best wishes, Anna reg (talk) 12:44, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
I forgot the voting header... by the way, the list of links I gave you sounds worse than it is - only the first three change from month two month, but they normally only include two to three sentences. The rest of the challenge introductions doesn't change and is therefore included in two templates (photo challenge rules and the footer) - and the voting header explains the voting rules in a few sentences.
Hope I didn't scare you away by first answering late and then posting a whole list of links... ;->
Best wishes, Anna reg (talk) 13:34, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
All subpages linked here processed, there are templates that are not translated to czech, though, also the examples gallery caption is not translatable. Anyway, commons users should know english at least at the basic level, so it does not matter that much. Thank you for the list :) — Polda18 (talk pagecontributions) 15:08, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, Polda18!
I agree with you that a bit English is necessary on commons, but apparently the challenge descriptions exceeded those basics (we started translating after we got some complains that the descriptions were difficult to understand). If it's okay with you I'll notify you again as soon as the challenge pages for April are ready for translation - which will probably be at the end of March (even though I already started the decision making process - but as nobody really wants to decide, that always needs time... ;->)
Best wishes, Anna reg (talk) 15:59, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Glad to help :) Thank you for the kick :) — Polda18 (talk pagecontributions) 16:12, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

April photo challenges ready for translation[edit]

Hello Polda18,
the April challenges are hopefully ready for translation! Here are the links:

I'm preparing the new watchlist message in HelenOnline's sandbox - as always... Thanks for your help, Anna reg (talk) 07:44, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

All done :) Happy to help :) — Polda18 (talk pagecontributions) 14:40, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! Just copied the Czech titles into the new watchlist message, which is waiting for the voting pages to be prepared... --Anna reg (talk) 08:31, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Photo challenge translation - May[edit]

Hello Polda18,
the challenge pages for May are ready for translation:

FRacco created some translation templates for the photo challenge and formulated a Translation Plan - perhaps you could have a look (e.g. the new watchlist message is using one - the translated theme names have to be added to Template:Photo challenge theme/i18n/Mother Nature Strikes Back and Template:Photo challenge theme/i18n/Panoramas).
Best wishes and thanks for your help!
--Anna reg (talk) 19:16, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Translated, thank you for notice :) — Polda18 (talk pagecontributions) 11:57, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Photo challenge translation - June[edit]

Hello Polda18,
we are really late this month (I didn't have much time), but the challenge pages for June are:

The new templates are therefore {{Photo challenge theme/i18n/Collections, Collecting and Collectables}} and {{Photo challenge theme/i18n/Eyes}}. Oh, and the challenges are both restricted to June and 4 pictures per user - the sentence is added after the {{Photo challenge rules}}-template.
Best wishes and once again thanks for helping!
--Anna reg (talk) 23:00, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

Translated. Thank you for notice :) — Polda18 (talk pagecontributions) 09:26, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Photo challenge translations - July[edit]

Hello Polda18,
the pages for July are finally, finally ready for translation:

The title translations are therefore {{Photo challenge theme/i18n/Food production and processing}} and {{Photo challenge theme/i18n/Unfamiliar Vehicles}}.
I removed the time restriction from last months restriction (time and pictures per user) - please check that I didn't delete anything wrong...
Best wishes and once again thanks for helping!
--Anna reg (talk) 22:32, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

All challenges for July translated and checked – nothing wrong :) — Polda18 (talk pagecontributions) 13:44, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
Great! Thanks a lot, Polda18! --Anna reg (talk) 12:46, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Photo challenge translations - September[edit]

Hello Polda18,
I didn't manage to do any notifications for August (I hardly participated in the challenge preparation), but I have some news for September:
The new challenges are

The title translations can be found under {{Photo challenge theme/i18n/Fossils}}, {{Photo challenge theme/i18n/Fountains and wells}} and {{Photo challenge theme/i18n/100 years later}}.
Oh, and we have a time restriction for September for Fountains and wells - please check the text!
Best wishes, --Anna reg (talk) 00:39, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

As Mykola Swarnyk asked about the August translations, I realised that it's perhaps a good idea to give you the links for the theme name templates - after all, they will be used in the watchlist notice for September (voting pages): {{Photo challenge theme/i18n/Reptiles and Amphibians}} and {{Photo challenge theme/i18n/Personal Protective Equipment}}.
All the best, --Anna reg (talk) 08:01, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Well, all links translated. I need to ask - August challenge Reptiles and Amphibians is displayed title with unknown month and cyrilic (probably ukrainian) spell. Is it possible some malicious mind person could defect the page? I did translate the title, but not the page. Also translated title does not appears on the page, as it is overrided by the cyrilic spell. The same also for the other August challenge. — Polda18 (talk pagecontributions) 08:52, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing it out - I just corrected it. And no, it's not malicious at all - just a mistake while trying to translate the page to Ukrainian. Thanks for your help, Anna reg (talk) 09:53, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
