International Photoworkshop[edit]

Hello, motivated by the six Fotoworkshops of the German Wikipedia an international Photoworkshop in the Swedish Nyköping will be launched during the Easter Weekend 2010. Nyköping was chosen since Skavsta Airport is a Ryanair Base and very close to Stockholm.

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Samat!

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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 Samat,

Thank you for contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments and sharing your pictures with the whole world. You are very welcome to keep uploading images, even though you can't win prizes any longer. To get started on editing relevant Wikipedia articles, click here for more information and help.
You can find all uploaded pictures in our central media collection Wikimedia Commons. Many photos are already used in Wikipedia.

To make future contests even more successful, we would like to invite you to share your experiences with us in this survey.

Kind regards,

is done but I fear it is too late? -- RE rillke questions? 21:46, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Dear Rillke,

Thank you for your help in reviewing so many pictures! I'd like to write a message to every uploader, who changed licenc or deleted uploaded images. I hope it is not too late now :) Samat (talk) 08:12, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Indafoto[edit]

Admin MGA73 can also mark Indafoto images if he has the time. I believe he emptied most of this category after I stopped marking images here as he marked the remaining free images like these 2 below:

He's in Europe like you and Admin Rillke and Lymantria. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 23:00, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! :) Samat (talk) 23:18, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

  • No problem. Also, like Rillke, MGA73 has a bot but it doesn't mark images for review. --Leoboudv (talk) 02:48, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

why?[edit]

why is your bot asking me to fill out the WLM survey again by saying thank you for filling out the survey? —Mono 22:07, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Dear Mono, this notification is a thank you message if you already filled out the survey and a kind reminder if you not, since less than 5% of the participants answered for the original message. (As the survey is anonim, nobody knows who filled it out already.) If you feel, that the wording could be better, you can discuss it on the talk page of the template (You are not the only one who felt, that it can be confusing a little bit.) I was only asked to send them out :) Samat (talk) 22:19, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
OK, I see that. —Mono 17:02, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

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.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Hi -- Thanks for making your photo of the Megyeri Bridge available under a CC license!
