2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.
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.
Again: why do you have removed this correct Category? Simple question. There must be a cause and I would like to know this cause. If there's no cause, it was vandalism. Marcus Cyron (talk) 09:54, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
I am really tempted to be snide in the hopes that you'd exact poor judgement becoming of your overly enthusiastic questioning and block me. But, no, this appears to be a thing. I suggest you email them to ask what is with their choice of name. Resident Mario (talk) 18:37, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
I know, why he has this Name. This artist also have an article at de:Wikipedia. It is a Notname. There are thousands of them. This is one of ca. 1500 Notnames the famous Archaeologist and researcher of ancient vases, John D. Beazley, has given to unknown artists. There is a wide spread system of different names. And he gave this name to the in his opinion worst artist in this field. But at the end it is only a help to classify unknown artists. It is frustrating, when people come and change things they don't understand. Real frustrating. Marcus Cyron (talk) 19:28, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
Well...you've been reverted...so I guess the status quo continues. Resident Mario (talk) 19:30, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
The individual who reverted it. WoflmanSF, did say that it should be improved but still adds value, so you should probably still make the adjustments if you have the time available. Quote: "it only shows base-to-sea-level for Everest; it would be nice to have it improved, but I think most readers can figure out what is going on, and it still adds value to the article". He also added notes in the captions to that effect in subsequent updates. 22.214.171.124 23:48, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
@126.96.36.199: I looked into it again and I don't see the issue here, Kea is 4,205 m in terms of elevation above sea level, and Everest is 8,848 m. Resident Mario (talk) 02:16, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
