Dear SanoAK,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2016 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eleventh 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 (2016) 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 Round 1, there were 1475 candidate images. There are 58 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category.

In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 20 April 2017, 23:59:59 UTC.

Thanks,

Distribution maps[edit]

Hi Sano - nice work on making new maps! Just to mention though, one you made File:ThalasseusSandvicensisIUCNver2018 2.png uses an out-of-date taxonomy, this has now been split into two species, Thalasseus acuflavidus (New World) and Thalasseus sandvicensis sensu stricto (Old World). To check up to date taxonomy, please see the IOC World Bird List; Commons follows this. Hope this helps! - MPF (talk) 01:40, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi MPF! Thank You for help and infos! I see, I have to check IOC WBL, HBW and BirdLife Datazone before I try to prepare a new version of map according to IUCN. I will continue by creating of maps (colors, dpi, zoom, projection).. if you have some instruction about regulation for preparing maps (e.g. projection), write me links, please, to be able do it correct way. Thank You! Best regards, --SanoAK (talk) 09:12, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
Glad to help! The IOC list is the important one, as theirs is the taxonomy followed by Commons, Wikispecies and most wikipedias. Yes, do please continue making maps! It does no matter which projection you use, just select the map you like best in Category:Blank maps (and its subcategories). The most important is to remember to link to the maps you use, it is a condition of the creative commons license (in the past, some maps have risked deletion, because the creator forgot to do so .... mea culpa ;-)) - MPF (talk) 21:54, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank You very much! Ok, I will study the links.. I use as a background: Natural Earth. Free vector and raster map data @ naturalearthdata.com. Plus... I splitted the map File:ThalasseusSandvicensisIUCNver2018 2.png and corrected the legend and legend description, is no more outdated.. I see more details and new teritories at east Afrika. best regards! --SanoAK (talk) 15:33, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
Hi MPF! I prepared a File:ThalasseusAcuflavidusIUCN2018 2.png.--SanoAK (talk) 18:31, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks! MPF (talk) 00:27, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

ButeoButeoIUCN2019 1.png[edit]

Hi! I noticed a problem with Eurasian Buzzard (Buteo buteo) map on IUCN site. Try zooming the map in and out - range of this species will change in Eastern Europe (Lithuania, Poland...) and north and east of Black Sea. Therefore the current version of your map looks strange, because eastern range of resident population lies exactly on countries borders. Looks like some kind of error on IUCN site. Can you investigate it, please? Pikador (talk) 11:55, 19 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi! Thank You very much, really! Some areas are was with double values both breeding and resident at east-west border in the IUCN original shape file. I let the resident overlap (higher) the breeding to correct this mistake. Done. have a nice day!--SanoAK (talk) 13:08, 19 November 2019 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically marked as "reviewed". This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to make it easier for users that are monitoring Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, the Flickr upload feature and an increased number of batch-uploads in UploadWizard, uploading of freely licensed MP3 files and an increased limit for page renames per minute are now available to you. Thank you. ~riley (talk) 04:56, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

Thank You very much! --SanoAK (talk) 06:30, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

ChlamydotisMacqueeniiIUCN2019 2.png[edit]

Could you please update this map according to IUCN? Their map looks quite different now (breeding and non-breeding sites are separated). Pikador (talk) 09:32, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

Hi, done, plus I need adjust a legend in the main sites /later evening/, where this map is used. I see is not a good idea to give year into a name of file - without that were easear upgrade. --SanoAK (talk) 11:39, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
