Administrators and image reviewers: Many Flickr users are not familiar with the use of licenses and their meaning. Hence, they upload images to their account that are from third parties under the PD mark without a clear understanding of why they are PD, or place their works under the PD mark without realizing that doing so does not actually make them PD. Don't license PD mark images as CC-0, and don't accept them without a clear rationale for why they are PD.2015-12-08 23:59:59policy_change
