Thanks for your error report![edit]

Thanks Buddy for the Valves You're Making^ - NARA - 534218.jpg

On behalf of the US National Archives, I'd like to thank you for reporting the error you found in their catalog records; your report is now archived. The change has been applied to NARA's catalog by a staff member (see [1]), and I have updated the Commons image description accordingly.

Work like yours is valuable because you are helping to improve the quality of NARA's metadata for all its users, and, by adding value back to NARA's holdings, we can demonstrate the usefulness to them and others of contributing content to Commons. Thanks! Dominic (talk) 18:35, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

PNG compression[edit]

Why did you revert my compression of File:Ocean currents 1943 (borderless)3.png? The file is 1 MB smaller, and the compression is lossless, which means the image is identical. Mahahahaneapneap (talk) 21:11, 21 January 2012 (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

hey[edit]

I noticed you had trouble only because I was looking at the history thinking 'is someone messing with me ?' it must have been a Freudian slop I had a few edits later... twice. Penyulap 13:14, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Hehe, yeah, I've been up all night in an attempt to reset my sleeping pattern, so I'm getting a bit tired... :-) Ed [talk] [en:majestic titan] 14:09, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

I know this is a little obsessive, but...[edit]

The Signpost FC will be up soon. I'm trying to finish restore my planned lead image.

Yes, I know that's a bit crazy. Adam Cuerden (talk) 16:06, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States – Results![edit]

LUSITANA WLM 2011 d.svg This user participated in Wiki Loves Monuments 2016.

Want to show your participation in Wiki Loves Monuments 2016? Add {{User Wiki Loves Monuments 2016}} to your userpage!
Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States - Logo (text under).svg

Thank you for contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States during the month of October! The United States contest saw over 1,700 people contribute over 11,000 great photos of cultural and historic sites from all over the United States and its territories. In addition to National Register of Historic Places sites, we welcomed uploads of sites designated by state- and local-level historical institutions and societies. Hundreds of these photos are already being used to illustrate Wikipedia articles!

We're excited to announce that our national judging process has concluded, and that we have selected the winners of Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States! We were amazed by all of the uploads, and regret having to narrow it down to just 10. That being said – congratulations to our national winners and their amazing shots! Our 10 winners will be sent to the international Wiki Loves Monuments jury, who will then select the winners of the international contest. If you're interested in seeing the winners of the other various national contests as they are announced, you may do so at Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 winners.

Finally, we have also created a feedback form for all participants in the United States to fill out. The survey is optional and anonymous, and only takes a minute or two – we hope to use the feedback to organize better events in the future!

Once again, thank you for participating in Wiki Loves Monuments 2016, and we hope to see you again for future Commons photography events! ~Kevin Payravi (talk) 06:28, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
