WikiDACH 2015 - Wikipedia tut gut

Vom 30. Oktober bis 1. November 2015 findet nun endlich im prächtigen Schweriner Schloss [1] 
die erste WikiDACH [2] statt. Der Landtag von Mecklenburg-Vorpommern gestattet die kostenfreie 
Nutzung damit sich die Welt der Wikipedianer (und aller anderen Wikimedia-Projekte) mit den 
Menschen der Region, sowie ganz Österreichs, der Schweiz und Deutschlands austauschen können. 
Teilnehmer können hier ihr Interesse bekunden [3] und es werden noch Helfer [4] gesucht. Wer 
einen Vortrag oder Workshop [5] anbieten möchte, trägt sich bitte ein. Bitte beschreibt, was 
Ihr anbieten möchtet. Ein griffiger Titel ist dabei sehr wichtig, außerdem natürlich das Format 
und die gewünschte Länge des Slots. Da wir viele Besucher erwarten, die die Wikipedia und ihre 
Schwesterprojekte noch nicht kennen, wäre auch eine Angabe hilfreich, ob sich der Slot für 
Anfänger eignet.

Curious. Let's hope something free software and reusable comes out of it!

nice error

The main page for today is showing a nice graphics done a few days ago and it isn't a featured picture, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Potd/2015-06-09. It was scheduled by the uploader of this picture. All very funny

Commons vs. Europeana metadata quality

In reading the recent

http://pro.europeana.eu/files/Europeana_Professional/Publications/Metadata%20Quality%20Report.pdf 
summary I think that some of the principles apply to Commons as well, 
tohugh of course we're talking of very different beasts.

For instance:
* "Data should be enriched where possible (e.g. through multilinguality 
or  vocabularies)" is something we do better than most, even though 
further integration with the Translate extension is needed;
* "using a preview portal as a means of data validation" is basically 
covered by the CommonsMetadata tracking categories, also visible on 
preview (though I don't know about GWT);
* "A thumbnail should be made available for all digital cultural 
heritage objects" is easier for us but still a strength we tend to overlook.

Other ideas?

Help with a disappeared user account

May someone help me to solve a mistery?

For instance with this image:

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Pont_sur_le_Rhone.jpg

The account of the uploader doesn't exist.

It's strange because I checked it immediately after the uploading.

It's not one image that has this problem, other images of WLM CH 2014 has some uploaders with no account.

Regards
