Flickr helping us?[edit]

I have got an idea which may be quite common but anyway... It would be nice if Flickr's users saw something like "for Wikipedia" next to the names of the licenses compatible with Commons (BY-SA and BY) which the users can choose when uploading their images. This would require a small change on Flickr's site but it could mean much more images for Commons because I guess, people do not know that Commons can use the images from Flickr if they have a suitable licenses.

However, somebody from Commons must contact Flickr and discuss this. What do you think, is there any chance? Miraceti (talk) 16:03, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Flickr uploads raised at RFC[edit]

In case anyone here isn't aware of it, uploads from Flickr are one of the subjects currently being discussed at Commons:Requests for comment/images of identifiable people. --Avenue (talk) 16:21, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
