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 .

Hi, I noticed you have set up User:MiszaBot to archive your talk page. Unfortunately, the bot has stopped working, and given how its operator is inactive, it is unclear when/if this will fixed. For the time being, I have volunteered to operate a MiszaBot clone (running the exact same code). With that said, your input would be appreciated at Commons:Bots/Requests/ArchiveBot 1.

Hello Matt, Hello Matt,
I want to propose an image change to this wiki-page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiliaen_van_Rensselaer_(merchant) The portrait shown there is: https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:KiliaenVanRensselaerPortrait.jpg
Since this is not a portrait of the person this lemma is about, I think it's incorrect to put it that prominently at the top of the page. It's like using the image of George H W Bush in the lemma of George W ...
It's a pity that there is no portrait of Kiliaen, but using the current one is not OK in my opinion.
Hope this is right procedure to get your attention on this subject.
