License review (list of reviewers)



Lemill Web Albums


Picasa Web Albums

Other reviews


La licence de relecture est nécessaire pour le transfert de fichier provenant de Flickr, Picasa, Panoramio, Youtube et d'autres sites extérieurs fournissant des images sous différentes licences. Les téléverseurs sur ces sites peuvent choisir parmi plusieurs licences, dont certaines sont libres et compatibles avec Commons, et d'autres ne sont pas libres et ne permettent pas l'importation sur Commons. Certains de ces sites extérieurs autorisent leurs utilisateurs de sélectionner une licence de leur choix et de la changer à n'importe quel moment, sans laisser une trace de changement du statut de l'image. This means there is no easy way to check whether an image currently marked as non-free was uploaded under a free license. This causes problems for the use of these images on Wikimedia projects.

Wikimedia Commons therefore has a review process for verifying the copyright status of images uploaded from these external sites, which allows for the verification of freely licensed images by a bot or trusted user (admins and community approved users) and identification of images where the Commons license is different. Cependant, cette méthode ne permet pas de dire si l'image "était" toujours disponible librement


Editors uploading material whose license depends on a declaration in an external website should tag the file description page with one of the tags in Category:License review tags. Use {{Flickrreview}} for images from Flickr and {{LicenseReview}} if no website-specific tag is available.


Les relecteurs qui sont approuvés par la communauté leurs est conféré le droit de relecteur d'image

Les administrateurs n'ont pas besoin de ce droit. It is a user group used for managing the list of reviewers as opposed to having a list, which was formerly used and now archived here.

Reviewers and administrators may confirm licenses from the various categories listed on the green template to the right (link), including files from Picasa Web Albums and Flickr.

To become a reviewer, one needs to be familiar with the general licensing policy of Commons. A reviewer is required to know which licenses are allowed and disallowed on Wikimedia Commons and be familiar with restrictions that may apply, such as freedom of panorama. Post your request on the requests page, so that the community can voice their opinions. After a few days, a reviewer or administrator determines whether there are no severe objections to the candidate. If there are not, the user will close the request and add the candidate to the Image-reviewers user group. If permissions are granted you can add {{User reviewer}} (or one of its variants) to your user page and begin reviewing images.

Instructions for reviewers

The simplest way to review images is using a License reviewer script (see configuration). To use this script, add the following to your common.js:


Before executing the script, the file must be reviewed first. Please note that as of 21 February 2012, image-reviewers may not review their own uploads unless the account is an approved bot. This ensures that at least two individuals, or one individual and a bot, have checked that the license choice is correct. Reviews by image-reviewers on their own uploads will be considered invalid. When reviewing files from any album site, keep the following in mind and change the file page when necessary:

  • Free license. The first thing you review is the license on the album site. The license must be one that is accepted by Wikimedia Commons, otherwise the file should fail review and be marked for deletion (License - tab on License reviewer script). Commons:Where is the license on various sites? lists some large image and media sharing sites and where the license can be found on each one (sometimes it isn't obvious).
  • Both license and author should match those in the album site. If the license on the album site is accepted by Commons, but is not the chosen license on the file page, change it so that the licenses match. It is a courtesy to link the author’s name to the profile page of the associated website. Note that services like Flickr give their users the ability to choose nicknames. Both real and nicknames are displayed in the user’s profile page, and either can be used to attribute the author (unless the author specifies otherwise).
  • Source link. It is essential that the source links to the correct file page of the album site. If you come across a file linking to the wrong page, attempt to search for the right one and fix the link on the Commons file page. If there’s no success, use {{Flickr no source}} and {{nsd}} (License - tab, select No source indicated, on License reviewer script).
  • Are they really the copyright holder? Consider whether the picture on the album site was really made by that user. Many users have no clue about copyrights, and “freely” license images for which they do not own the copyright! Voir Commons:Questionable Flickr images. Si l'image représente une sculpture ou un bâtiment, vérifier qu'il n'y ait pas de problèmes de liberté de panorama.
  • If the uploader was not the author (the only way to be sure is for the web album user to post their Commons ID on the web album user page), check to ensure the web album user actually freely licensed the photo and that the correct license was cited by the uploader.
  • Thank you. Consider leaving a thank-you message on the album site image page (this requires an account in the associated album site). You can use the following message template; replace Foo.jpg with the real name (this is in pure HTML - depending on the site you may have to adjust the link syntax):
Thanks for licensing this image under a free license! Your choice has allowed us to use your image at <a href="">Wikimedia Commons</a>. The image can now be used to illustrate <a href="">one or more pages</a> on <a href="">the English Wikipedia</a> or other free knowledge projects.

Once all this information has been reviewed for the image, you now change the template manually or via script. For script, see script documentation for more details. You can also do it manually, which is described more in detail at {{flickrreview}}. The following is a table of all possible combinations for the flickrreview template (change to picasareview, panoramareview, etc.). If you like the manual procedures, you might copy the source code of this table into your user page and put your username into it. It helps with the copy and paste work, since the date is changed automatically and there are templates for every case of license. If the server forgets to change after midnight UTC, you can use the purge link to refresh.
