Dear Ulanwp,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth 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 (2015) 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 1322 candidate images. There are 56 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 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.

That Post Office[edit]

Hi, why did 'they' pick up the disused building and put it alongside the Kauri Museum? Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 10:19, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi Eddaido, I don't know what you mean with 'they'. I visited the place once and know that the Post Building Office is a separate Building and has nothing to do with the Kauri Museum, dispite it is located on the left side of the museums building. As you know that the Kauri museum is only on the right site of its building, left part is the community hall of the village. An info board at front side of the building is of course a bit confusing, because it shows post office, matakohe school buildung and pioneer church on the map, together with museum and community hall, but they are separate to the museum and can be entered free. I hope I could help. -- Ulanwp (talk) 16:21, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
Pardon me but I understand it (the Post Office) is an exhibit of the Kauri Museum not worth putting under cover.
I've just phoned the museum and after consultation with colleagues the person on the phone confirmed it is just part of their collection. Eddaido (talk) 21:58, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
Ok that's fine than, if it's so. Than the question is about the other buildings I have mentioned above. What's about them? Thank's for your effort. -- Ulanwp (talk) 08:45, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
A friend (now long dead) was involved with the museum in the early days and I visited a few times. I'm not sure how I chanced on the file but it isn't important to me whether or not its linked to the museum. I think they might have "rescued" a number of buildings like the post office (these things would have been reported to me when they happened though of course I don't remember them now) but I have only the most general idea. If you'd like to get it quite clear drop the museum an email. I only phoned because for an awful moment I thought I might be wrong and that you might be right! Regards, Eddaido (talk) 09:49, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
I attended a marriage in the church in 1980 but I don't think it was on that site at that time. Eddaido (talk) 09:52, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
That's fine, Ok I'll do it and will let you know soon. -- Ulanwp (talk) 10:27, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

Zealandia spelling error[edit]

Dear Ulanwp,

I just came across a map of Zealandia you contributed to Wikimedia Commons (link:,_topographic_map.jpg). I noticed that you added the name "Ballons Seamount" to the seamount in the southeast, while it is in fact named "Bollons Seamount". This file is used on quite a large number of pages, so I think a correction is necessary. Are you maybe able/willing to do this sometime? This would be very much appreciated.
