Traditional vs simplified characters

Hello,

If I well understand, the characters set to use on this wiki is simplified characters. If I also well understand, traditional characters and simplified characters are always differents, and can be substituted easyly.

Monsieur,
you quite well understood our situations here.
 
you can see the latest example here ==> 東京 ╱ Tokyo ╱ 东京
 
we must use the simplified char.s "东京" and reject the traditional counterpart: "東京" <== one character difference, not two :)))

To make good use of Wikipedia:机器人/TraditionalToSimplifiedParameters, make different sections according to the number of characters in the combinaison (1 character, 2 characters, ...), beginning by the higher number at the top of the page (for technical reasons). --Hercule 2008年9月10日 (礼拜三) 13:08 (UTC)

I do propose to run my bot regulary to replace automaticly traditional characters by simplified characters.

gonna to be great if that works, I do not know about easy or not though。 。 。 but I know there are at least 4000 pairs to start with, I have done about 500 —— some simplified have 3 or 4 mapping trad. char.s, so the mapping is "many to one" some-times ╱ but most of times it is "one to one".

initially there can be confusion, so some human proof reading is needed for the results but in my opinion that's minor issue 。 。 。

For substitution that should be verified by a human, we can use a parameter in the template. In this case my bot would list the diff on a special page in order a wu speaker can verify it and correct it if needed.
I have a lot of technical possibilities in mind. The thing is that I must clearly understand the possible issues ;). --Hercule 2008年9月10日 (礼拜三) 13:08 (UTC)

As I don't know wu, I need the help of the communauty to determine substitutions to do. The parameters pages is Wikipedia:机器人/TraditionalToSimplifiedParameters. Edit this page to indicate the substitution to do with {{TraditionalToSimplifiedParameters|Traditional character|Simplified character}} If will be displayed as

  1. 拨转换成 / doit être remplacé par

Thanks --Hercule 2008年9月10日 (礼拜三) 10:56 (UTC)

Good idea but one problem. Sometimes we still need traditional Chinese in the article and we don't want it to be automatically converted to simplified Chinese since one simplified Chinese character can map two or more traditional character(s) and sometimes we need the difference especially in Wu.

--Wtzdj 2008年9月10日 (礼拜三) 14:43 (UTC)

If one traditionnal character can be translated by more than one simplified character, we can create another template (like Template:TraditionalToSimplifiedParametersAmbiguity for exemple). The bot could make the more usual substitution, and list the change in a special page, to be reviewed by wu speaker. Or could not substitute and list page on a special page for translation is done by a human. The first solution is easier for maintainers but the article can be wrong during time of verification.
If a traditional character has to be always replaced by a combinaison of simplified, it's not a problem, indicate the combinaison in the template and the program will make substitution.
If an expression has stay in traditional characters as a quote for exemple, we can use a special template that will be reconized by the bot (Template:Trad for exemple. The advantage of a template is that we can also make special formating for this text.
If you're interrested we can make tests on a reduced set of characters --Hercule 2008年9月10日 (礼拜三) 15:50 (UTC)

First test

I've done a first test, see the log (User:HerculeBot/Logs)

On eo wiki they have a special module installed (LanguageEo.php) that automaticly convert u+x to ŭ, and display u+x+x as eu. but they have only 6 caracters that need this translation. I don't know if it's realistic to want to use this system here.
If you decide to use a bot system on this wiki I can help you, but I wouldn't like to work for nothing ;).
For unique conversion the system is clear. I just have to add a system to ignore templates and I would be able to just change displayed characters. Case more complexe we can decide of a add of {{traditional characters to clean-up}} template by the bot. But only if a human is ready to make the corrections.
If correcting some characters and not the others is stupid my bot can add the template to all page using a traditional character, without making any replacement.
The decision of the best solution has to be done by the wu speaker ;)
--Hercule 2008年9月12日 (礼拜五) 21:50 (UTC)

Do you mind have a few more tests ??

Or how do we request for robot to auto convert these new articles ??

Because it's still in test I think we can wait. When all will be OK the bot will be launch regulary on all pages. --Hercule 2008年9月15日 (礼拜一) 09:00 (UTC)

Nakhon Sawan Province

Hi,
I have never done this b4. today went to Google translate to enter this URL http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nakhon_Sawan_Province

then select source language: English target language: chlnese (simplified) hit go then pasted the result into here. besides not quite being in Wuu, and not knowing the chinese word for lots of Thai province names (yet), actually its an incredibly good chinese article. I just got 2 take some more time for edit

大西洋鲑 2009年2月18日 (礼拜三) 10:21 (UTC)

big west salmon, the google translate confused the word for "You", with john lennon's last name.大天王皇子 2009年2月18日 (礼拜三) 17:28 (UTC)
As much as I know, neither you, nor me, nor Lennon is mentioned in the article. maybe you can write a seperate translate program for wuu.....大天王皇子 2009年2月18日 (礼拜三) 17:30 (UTC)
Big west salmon, i think translating between mandarin and wuu would be straightfoward, and we could easily get hundreds of articles in wuu, if someone could write a program for it.大天王皇子 2009年2月18日 (礼拜三) 17:43 (UTC)

hi,
thank you for the comments, I think we need to add a section under 機器翻譯 to intiate possible development of mandarin --> wuu translation engines.

mandarin-->wuu translation

i have contacted someone who can write a mandarin-->wuu translation program. i need character and words that are different in wuu and their mandarin equivalents, in traditional please, becaues we already have simplification programs, and if we used simpified its going to get even more confusing.大天王皇子 2009年3月1日 (礼拜天) 19:11 (UTC)

 
good news indeed, i hope it works for all the users of wuu wikipedia,
 
here is my 20 cents of advice, get to your mandarin user page
paste all character you already have (as simplified characters) into that page,
then click on 繁體 button, its the 9th button @ the 2nd row
then wait for 2 seconds →→ whoola, you get all traditional characters . . .
 
Good luck !!         大西洋鲑 2009年3月2日 (礼拜一) 01:24 (UTC)
 
 
????what characters? i dont have the list, thats why im asking for a list of charactrers different in mandarin and wuu, like
 
你--> 侬 (儂)
大天王皇子 2009年3月2日 (礼拜一) 03:10 (UTC)
 
Ooo, you do not have the list, how can i
help you then, perhaps have a look at this.
 
but i am not definitely sure what needs to be 
translated what needs not . . .  
 
lets keep looking for a list         大西洋鲑 2009年3月2日 (礼拜一) 09:53 (UTC)
i still don't have the mandarin meaning for those characters...
can you give me a few characters fast and their mandarin equivalents because i don't think hes going to like it if he starts writing the tanslator program and i keep him waiting...... i need to send it over the email.
i think i have a few now, i need more: (and please check them and correct)
他 --> 伊
我們 --> 伲
母親-->阿媽 (Not sure)
你们-->㑚
我拉-->阿拉 can also be 我侬
哎-->是
不-->呒
不-->弗是
不-->呒没
啥-->人谁

and please help me complete the list, ive told the person i should have them within a week. in all traditional character please.

i think we can compile a list from this dictionary大天王皇子 2009年3月2日 (礼拜一) 18:04 (UTC)
salmon good news, i have emailed someone who said they can write a translator program from mandarin--wuu, all i need is a list of all the characters which are different, in traditional please, because we already have simplification program.大天王皇子 2009年3月1日 (礼拜天) 18:11 (UTC)
I am really not sure, this is a strange topic.
what about a mandarin book title :<<我的母親>> (my mother) then
literately it will become <<我个阿妈>>
or <<我个拇妈>> ???
 
no body can search for the translated book title on the internet then.
 
basically they can experiment a bit more; 
Hey we haven't decided even on what kind of Wu to use yet, I thought. From Suzhou I'd say “我个娘“ off the bat instead of the aforementioned examples. Shouldn't we get that sorted first? Karajanis 2009年11月12日 (礼拜四) 09:59 (UTC)

Simplified-to-Traditional?

Is there some kind of (automated?) script translation scheme from Simplified Chinese to Traditional Chinese (and vice versa) for Wu Wikipedia, just like in Chinese Wikipedia and Gan Wikipedia?

I'm a Wu speaker but can only read and write in Traditional Chinese. I can understand some Simplified Chinese, but that poses a problem for me because I'd like to read it in Traditional Chinese.

I know one of the users posted a suggestion for it, but I'd like to see a variant page of Wu Wikipedia in Traditional Chinese.

Thank you in advance.

The LocalisationUpdate extension has gone live

The LocalisationUpdate extension is now enabled for all Wikimedia projects. From now on new localisations that become available in SVN will become available to your project within 24 hours. Your localisations get into SVN from translatewiki.net typically within a day and at worst in two days. This is a huge improvement from the old practice where the localisations became available with new software. This could take weeks, even months.

The localisations done by our community at translatewiki.net are committed to SVN typically every day. When the system messages in English are the same as the local messages, they will now be inserted in a file and are available for use in all our projects in a timely manner

What this means for you

Local messages have an impact on the performance of our system. It is best when messages are as much as possible part of the system messages. In order to remove unnecessary duplication, all the messages that have a local localisation and are exactly the same as the system message will be removed. What we ask you to do is to compare and proof read the messages in translatewiki.net and the local messages. You can then either remove local messages when the translatewiki.net message is to be preferred or, you can update the message at translatewiki.net.

Messages that are specific to your project will have to stay as they are. You do want to check if the format and the variables of the message are still the same.

Why localise at translatewiki.net

When you localise at translatewiki.net, your messages will be used in all Wikimedia projects and eventually in all MediaWiki based projects. This is how we provide the standard support for your language. When messages change, at translatewiki.net you will be prompted to revisit your translations. Localising is more efficient because we have innovated the process to make you more efficient; there is text explaining about messages and we have applied AJAX technology to reduce the number of clicks you have to make.

Translatewiki.net update

Please help us help your language by localising and proof reading at translatewiki.net. This is the recent localisation activity for your language. Thanks, GerardM 2009年9月30日 (礼拜三) 21:26 (UTC)

How can we improve the usability for your language

We expect that with the implementation of LocalisationUpdate the usability of MediaWiki for your language will improve. We are now ready to look at other aspects of usability for your language as well. There are two questions we would like you to answer: Are there issues with the new functionality of the Usability Initiative Does MediaWiki support your language properly

The best way to answer the first question is to visit the translatewiki.net. Change the language to your language, select the “vector” skin and add the advanced tool bar in in the preferences and check out the new functionality. And make some changes in your user page. When there is a need to improve on the localisation, please make the necessary changess . It should update your localisation straight away. We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Usability_issues.

When there are problems with the support of MediaWiki for your language, we really want to know about this. It is best to report each issue separately. In this way there will be no large mass of issues to resolve but we can address each issue on its own. Consider issues with the display of characters, the presentation of your script, the position of the side bar, the combination of text with other languages, scripts. It is best to try this in an environment like the prototype wiki as it provides you with a clean, basic and up to date environment. The prototype wiki is available for five languages but you can select any of them, change the preferences to your language and test out MediaWiki for your language.

We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Languageissues. The issues you raise will all be assessed. It is important to keep each issue separate, because this will make it easier to understand the issues and find solutions.

Fundraising time is around the corner!

Hello Wikimedians, my name is Deniz and I am working for the Wikimedia Foundation during the 2010 Fundraiser. My job is to be the liaison between the Wu community and the Foundation. This year's fundraiser is intended to be a collaborative and global effort, we recognize that banner messages that perform well in the United States don't necessarily translate well, or appeal to international audiences.

I am currently looking for translators who are willing to contribute to this project, helping to translate and localize messages into Wu and suggesting messages that would appeal to Wu readers on the Fundraising Meta Page. We've started the setup on meta for both banner submission, statistical analysis, and grouping volunteers together.
Use the talk pages on meta, talk to your local communities, talk to others, talk to us, and add your feedback to the proposed messages as well! I look forward to working with you during this year's fundraiser.

Please translate this message into Wu if you can and post it below.--Dgultekin 2010年9月10日 (礼拜五) 21:38 (UTC)

Fundraising 2010: Beat Jimmy Challenge

The Fundraising Committee is issuing all interested community members a challenge: we want you to beat Jimmy. The appeal from Jimmy Wales and the corresponding banner have been tested head-to-head with other successful banners, and the results are clear: it's our best performing message... by a lot. This year we have a lofty fundraising goal; we need all of our banners to bring in donations like the Jimmy Appeal, but no one wants to keep the Jimmy banner up for two months. We want to run donor quotes, and other wonderful ideas, but we have to have banners that work as well as or better than the Jimmy appeal.

We've just released the highlights from a donor focus group, and the results of our donor survey. With one month to the launch of the fundraiser, the messages we test must be driven by data from our tests and surveys - we can no longer rely on instinct alone.

We've redesigned our fundraising meta pages with the Jimmy challenge; check out the survey results and propose/discuss banners that reflect these findings. Add the banners you think will 'beat Jimmy' here to be tested Tuesday October 12 against Jimmy. -Dgultekin 2010年10月6日 (礼拜三) 23:46 (UTC)

Call for image filter referendum

The Wikimedia Foundation, at the direction of the Board of Trustees, will be holding a vote to determine whether members of the community support the creation and usage of an opt-in personal image filter, which would allow readers to voluntarily screen particular types of images strictly for their own account.

Further details and educational materials will be available shortly. The referendum is scheduled for 12-27 August, 2011, and will be conducted on servers hosted by a neutral third party. Referendum details, officials, voting requirements, and supporting materials will be posted at Meta:Image filter referendum shortly.

Announcing Wikipedia 1.19 beta

Wikimedia Foundation is getting ready to push out 1.19 to all the WMF-hosted wikis. As we finish wrapping up our code review, you can test the new version right now on beta.wmflabs.org. For more information, please read the release notes or the start of the final announcement.

The following are the areas that you will probably be most interested in:

  • Faster loading of javascript files makes dependency tracking more important.
  • New common*.css files usable by skins instead of having to copy piles of generic styles from MonoBook or Vector's css.
  • The default user signature now contains a talk link in addition to the user link.
  • Searching blocked usernames in block log is now clearer.
  • Better timezone recognition in user preferences.
  • Improved diff readability for colorblind people.
  • The interwiki links table can now be accessed also when the interwiki cache is used (used in the API and the Interwiki extension).
  • More gender support (for instance in logs and user lists).
  • Language converter improved, e.g. it now works depending on the page content language.
  • Time and number-formatting magic words also now depend on the page content language.
  • Bidirectional support further improved after 1.18.

Report any problems on the labs beta wiki and we'll work to address them before they software is released to the production wikis.

Note that this cluster does have SUL but it is not integrated with SUL in production, so you'll need to create another account. You should avoid using the same password as you use here. — Global message delivery 2012年1月15日 (礼拜天) 16:40 (UTC)

Language support group for Wuu

The Wikimedia Foundation has brought together a new team of developers who are dedicated to language support. This team is to support all the languages and consequently it is not realistic to expect that the team members can provide proper support for your language. It is for this reason that we are looking for volunteers who will make up a language support team.

This language support team will be asked to provide us with information about their language. Such information may need to be provided either to us or on a website that we will indicate to you. Another activity will be to test software that will likely have an effect on the running of the MediaWiki software. We are looking for people who clearly identify their ability. Formal knowledge is definitely appreciated.

As much of the activity will be concentrated on translatewiki.net, it will be a plus when team members know how to localise at translatewiki.net.

吴语个通用性问题

我想问一问管理员,吴语维基百科到底是畀上海搭仔苏州人用个还是畀整个吴语区个人用个?如果是畀整个吴语区个人用,该么为啥事体用个语言统统是苏州上海闲话?该么咋畀其他吴语区个人看?Groverlynn讨论) 2012年5月19日 (礼拜六) 12:14 (UTC)

我儂金華人,會講金華話箇。我儂便望弗懂格個維基百科裏面箇好些文字,因為我弗會講蘇州話、上海話。我忖問問其他用戶,尤其管理員,我用金華話寫,儂浪都望得懂弗? 格亨大家再忖孑,用蘇州、上海話寫有弗有道理。

另外,我儂用箇字都是《現代漢語方言大詞典·金華方言詞典》裏面箇,弗是我儂自編箇。 辻畠讨论) 2013年2月3日 (礼拜天) 15:51 (UTC)

Update on IPv6

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it, as well as the full version of this announcement on Meta)

The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to do limited testing of IPv6 on June 2-3. If there are not too many problems, we may fully enable IPv6 on World IPv6 day (June 6), and keep it enabled.

What this means for your project:

  • At least on June 2-3, 2012, you may see a small number of edits from IPv6 addresses, which are in the form "2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334". See e.g. w:en:IPv6 address. These addresses should behave like any other IP address: You can leave messages on their talk pages; you can track their contributions; you can block them. (See the full version of this announcement for notes on range blocks.)
  • In the mid term, some user scripts and tools will need to be adapted for IPv6.
  • We suspect that IPv6 usage is going to be very low initially, meaning that abuse should be manageable, and we will assist in the monitoring of the situation.

Read the full version of this announcement on how to test the behavior of IPv6 with various tools and how to leave bug reports, and to find a fuller analysis of the implications of the IPv6 migration.

македонскиnorsk bokmålpolski

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2011 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We are interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year 2011. Any user registered at Commons or a Wikimedia wiki SUL-related to Commons with more than 75 edits before 1 April 2012 (UTC) is welcome to vote and, of course everyone is welcome to view!

Detailed information about the contest can be found at the introductory page.

About 600 of the best of Wikimedia Common's photos, animations, movies and graphics were chosen –by the international Wikimedia Commons community– out of 12 million files during 2011 and are now called Featured Pictures.

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.

We regret that you receive this message in English; we intended to use banners to notify you in your native language but there was both, human and technical resistance.

See you on Commons! --Picture of the Year 2011 Committee 2012年6月5日 (礼拜两) 18:45 (UTC)

Help decide about more than $10 million of Wikimedia donations in the coming year

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it)

Hi,

As many of you are aware, the Wikimedia Board of Trustees recently initiated important changes in the way that money is being distributed within the Wikimedia movement. As part of this, a new community-led "Funds Dissemination Committee" (FDC) is currently being set up. Already in 2012-13, its recommendations will guide the decisions about the distribution of over 10 million US dollars among the Foundation, chapters and other eligible entities.

Now, seven capable, knowledgeable and trustworthy community members are sought to volunteer on the initial Funds Dissemination Committee. It is expected to take up its work in September. In addition, a community member is sought to be the Ombudsperson for the FDC process. If you are interested in joining the committee, read the call for volunteers. Nominations are planned to close on August 15.

Request for Comment: Legal Fees Assistance Program

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

I apologize for addressing you in English. I would be grateful if you could translate this message into your language.

The Wikimedia Foundation is conducting a request for comment on a proposed program that could provide legal assistance to users in specific support roles who are named in a legal complaint as a defendant because of those roles. We wanted to be sure that your community was aware of this discussion and would have a chance to participate in that discussion.

If this page is not the best place to publicize this request for comment, please help spread the word to those who may be interested in participating. (If you'd like to help translating the "request for comment", program policy or other pages into your language and don't know how the translation system works, please come by my user talk page at m:User talk:Mdennis (WMF). I'll be happy to assist or to connect you with a volunteer who can assist.)

Thank you! --Mdennis (WMF)2012年9月6日 (礼拜四) 02:17 (UTC)

Wikidata is getting close to a first roll-out

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.)

As some of you might already have heard Wikimedia Deutschland is working on a new Wikimedia project. It is called m:Wikidata. The goal of Wikidata is to become a central data repository for the Wikipedias, its sister projects and the world. In the future it will hold data like the number of inhabitants of a country, the date of birth of a famous person or the length of a river. These can then be used in all Wikimedia projects and outside of them.

The project is divided into three phases and "we are getting close to roll-out the first phase". The phases are:

  1. language links in the Wikipedias (making it possible to store the links between the language editions of an article just once in Wikidata instead of in each linked article)
  2. infoboxes (making it possible to store the data that is currently in infoboxes in one central place and share the data)
  3. lists (making it possible to create lists and similar things based on queries to Wikidata so they update automatically when new data is added or modified)

It'd be great if you could join us, test the demo version, provide feedback and take part in the development of Wikidata. You can find all the relevant information including an FAQ and sign-up links for our on-wiki newsletter on the Wikidata page on Meta.

For further discussions please use this talk page (if you are uncomfortable writing in English you can also write in your native language there) or point me to the place where your discussion is happening so I can answer there.

Fundraising localization: volunteers from outside the USA needed

Please translate for your local community

Hello All,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Fundraising team have begun our 'User Experience' project, with the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries outside the USA and enhancing the localization of our donation pages. I am searching for volunteers to spend 30 minutes on a Skype chat with me, reviewing their own country's donation pages. It will be done on a 'usability' format (I will ask you to read the text and go through the donation flow) and will be asking your feedback in the meanwhile.

The only pre-requisite is for the volunteer to actually live in the country and to have access to at least one donation method that we offer for that country (mainly credit/debit card, but also real-time banking like IDEAL, E-wallets, etc...) so we can do a live test and see if the donation goes through. All volunteers will be reimbursed of the donations that eventually succeed (and they will be low amounts, like 1-2 dollars)

By helping us you are actually helping thousands of people to support our mission of free knowledge across the world. Please sing up and help us with our 'User Experience' project! :) If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!

Thanks!

Be a Wikimedia fundraising "User Experience" volunteer!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered last year on the Wikimedia fundraising 'User Experience' project. We have talked to many different people in different countries and their feedback has helped us immensely in restructuring our pages. If you haven't heard of it yet, the 'User Experience' project has the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries (outside the USA) and enhancing the localization of our donation pages.

I am (still) searching for volunteers to spend some time on a Skype chat with me, reviewing their own country's donation pages. It will be done on a 'usability' format (I will ask you to read the text and go through the donation flow) and will be asking your feedback in the meanwhile.

The only pre-requisite is for the volunteer to actually live in the country and to have access to at least one donation method that we offer for that country (mainly credit/debit card, but also real time banking like IDEAL, E-wallets, etc...) so we can do a live test and see if the donation goes through. **All volunteers will be reimbursed of the donations that eventually succeed (and they will be very low amounts, like 1-2 dollars)**

Wikimedia sites to move to primary data center in Ashburn, Virginia. Read-only mode expected.

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.) Next week, the Wikimedia Foundation will transition its main technical operations to a new data center in Ashburn, Virginia, USA. This is intended to improve the technical performance and reliability of all Wikimedia sites, including this wiki. There will be some times when the site will be in read-only mode, and there may be full outages; the current target windows for the migration are January 22nd, 23rd and 24th, 2013, from 17:00 to 01:00 UTC (see other timezones on timeanddate.com). More information is available in the full announcement.

If you would like to stay informed of future technical upgrades, consider becoming a Tech ambassador and joining the ambassadors mailing list. You will be able to help your fellow Wikimedians have a voice in technical discussions and be notified of important decisions.

Thank you for your help and your understanding.

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open

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
