green sand[edit]

Hi Sarcastic ShockwaveLover, Happy new Year! I saw your fascination with glass beach (btw I was there, but some time ago). Have you ever heard about green sand beach File:Green sand in lava rocks.jpg? Best wishes, --Mbz1 (talk) 05:18, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Very interesting Mila, thanks for showing me! Also, would you happen to have any picture of Glass beach? Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 22:20, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
I do have some pictures, but they are not digital. Maybe one day I could go there again. It is probably 4-5 hours to drive from my home. BTW have you ever been to the Shell beach in Western Australia?--Mbz1 (talk) 02:11, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
No, sadly, I'm on the other side of the continent in QLD. Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 08:49, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
I am in the other part of the world, but I went there once :) Western Australia is a beautiful and a wild place to see and to drive through. I wish I were able go there one day again.--Mbz1 (talk) 14:45, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes, but don't forget, I'ly 19, and I've been saving all my money to go to uni this year. My travel budget is rather limited. :P Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 21:57, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
I did not know that. While I was looking over your writing and other contributions I honestly thought that you are at least in your thirties. Both are very mature. Well, good luck with your Uni, and do make sure to go to Western Australia and to swimm with whale sharks there.--Mbz1 (talk) 22:27, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much! Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 22:58, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

JPG vs jpg[edit]

Thanks, I was worried I was the only one to see no problem with the lack of capitalization. Wolf (talk) 21:56, 6 January 2010 (UTC) PS I like I don't give a hoot, I think I'll use this expression from time to time.

    • Oh, I don't think we're the only ones. If he keeps this up, he won't be welcome on FPC for too much longer. Really, it's just bureaucratic nonsense and pedanticness taken too far. Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 22:22, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
      • While we're here, I've submitted renames for those pictures. I honestly meant to change them before I nominated, but work's been very busy lately, and it seems as though as soon as I sit down, I'm called away.So I forgot, and juist nommed as they were. I meant to change them when you pointed it out, but work's just kept getting in the way. :( Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 22:27, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
      • I answered the guy at the Żelazny & Stearman nomination and that's the last he'll ever hear from be. I've got enough of other problems not to be willing to waste time on... that. Wolf (talk) 22:48, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Rename requests[edit]

With the {{rename}} requests like at File:US Navy 090711-N-9712C-011 Two F-A-18 Hornets assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 204 and two F-15 Strike Eagles assigned to the Louisiana Air National Guard 159th Fighter Wing fly in an echelon formation.jpg there is a set of criteria to be addressed. It would be useful if you could address these criteria to allow the consideration to be given. — billinghurst sDrewth 06:18, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

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
