Welcome to my user page !

v1.0 v1.1

I am a big fan of Wikimedia Commons. How many times did I look for a particular picture in Google, and I only got low quality rubbish or propaganda. Only about fifteen months of existence, and it already has tons of good pictures of the stuff I want. Thank You to You all!

Following some of the things I would like.

All images should be uploaded only to Wikicommons, under a free licence, so our colleagues in the other wikipedia projects can use them too. It's so tiresome to convert national wikipedia images to wiki commons.

At least they should be dual licensed, with "GFDL" AND "CC-BY-SA" (Creative Commons), so that news and printmedia can use them, too.

I will release new photos under a {{self2|cc-sa-1.0|GFDL}} license. This is an easy way for subsequent users, and is better protected than only Public Domain. People can use the material, but they have to allow others to build on this work. It is not necessary to give credit. If this license is not respected, it can be defended. So it enhances and protects the creative commons.


Technology columnist Nicholas Petreley once wrote:

Those who want information to be free as a matter of principle should create some information and make it free.
