Subject: [Foundation-l] Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year 2007 opening soon
To: Wikimedia Foundation Mailing List <foundation-l(a)lists.wikimedia.org>
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2007 Picture of the
Year competition will be held soon. Any user who is registered at any
Wikimedia wiki and has more than 200 edits is invited to vote.
The competition is among the 514 images that became Featured Pictures
at Wikimedia Commons between 2007-01-01 and 2007-12-31. There are
literally hundreds of beautiful high quality pictures... please help
us choose the best one!
Voting will be conducted through a tool on the toolserver (to make it
easier to count compared to editing on a wiki). Users can request a
voting token on
. You will need to have email enabled for the user account you intend
to vote from. You can only vote once, even if you have multiple
accounts that meet the edit requirement. The voter log will be public
although the actual votes themselves will be private.
Voting starts on January 10th. There are two rounds of voting. In the
first round, you can vote for as many images as you like, regardless
of category. In the final (28), you can only vote for one image.
