vote conversion to svg

in the category category:Top 200 images which have a vector version available by usage i propose that we(experienced vector graphic editors) vote for and against changing(replace) a particular image(to svg) and replace it "en masse"(on specific wikis that allow this in their policy) with a bot upon getting a special majority FOR replacing it.
i know that commonsdelinker dosent do this "to avoid WWIII" but still its a proposal

Commons community should not make such decision for local projects, I guess? --Ben.MQ (talk) 13:53, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Might be feasible if Commons users get each local project to agree in principle to allow Commons to do this, i.e. agree to the general principle of conversion decided on Commons (whilst explicitly allowing the local project to revert any specific cases they have issues with). Doing it without such prior consent is not a good idea. Rd232 (talk) 14:07, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Shouldn't we base it on more recent data than more than 2½ years ago? -- AnonMoos (talk) 14:52, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
inkwina is giving the code to generate the list at the category so making a list based on recent data might not be that big a problem. That category is just as an example. Any category can be created and used.

Gauravjuvekar (talk) 16:18, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

It's not technically a category... AnonMoos (talk) 16:41, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Upload credits of files transferred by bot

Up this page someone suggested uploads via bots such as flickr2commons could be creditd to the actual uploader. This makes sense, but I think is not currently possible. I'm thinking to make it possible, there'd have to be a new MediaWiki userright "assign-credit" which would allow bots to declare uploads to be made by a specified user (with a credit to the bot in the edit summary). Or else to somehow change MediaWiki so that an upload can have both the bot and the original uploader as authors. Thoughts, anyone? (NB Obviously this is potentially very dangerous; the ability to do this would have to be very carefully restricted to trusted users, and transparency assured, perhaps by being logged somehow.) Rd232 (talk) 22:52, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

It would be nice if the one who requested the upload would be saved in the upload-table, yes. -- RE rillke questions? 15:17, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
Not the person who requested the upload, the above refers to the actual uploader in the sense of the photographer, if that is who originally uploaded the photo. In my opinion, the photo-upload-requester doesn't need an attribution at all. Jane023 (talk) 15:33, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
Yes, that's true but this works only for original uploaders who are registered in WMF and have a global account. There would be many cases where it does not work. (Flickr, ...) -- RE rillke questions? 15:51, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure I understand - surely the Flickr account name may be used in lieu of a real author name? When I first read this, I was thinking of Bot uploads from archives, where the author is often named in one of the fields from the archive itself. During the past few years, I have corrected attributions of old paintings or engravings brought over from the Dutch or English Wikipedia that may or may not have referenced the uploader, but which had little other info, with broken source links. I have removed the original uploader info and relinked the files to working links to museums or online archives (I couldn't see where the original files were from). Since these are all public domain files anyway, I figure the original source and the meta data is more valuable info than what the original uploader did on a sister project. I think I have done a few dozen of these, so let me know if I am breaking any rules! Jane023 (talk) 07:48, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
Storing all the things which are in template information in separate database-table fields, could also ease this and a lot more (scripts and bots, searching, sorting, selecting). I am sure Flickr is using different fields to distinguish between GeoData, Description, License, ...
I would suggest creating a new database-table on MW which can handle file-information correctly otherwise it will be always a mess. This could also avoid such a dangerous and evil "assign-credit". Just save the author in the author field, which can -of course- be edited by everyone.
For Articles, MW is the best but not for files, communication or votings, not yet. -- RE rillke questions? 20:39, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

This is strongly related to the discussion about how to credit files whose uploaders have not specified an attribution method. I didn't think about the issue of bot-uploaded images, but of course I agree the credits definitely belong with the actual uploader. I am also curious about the number of photos which are now licensed with a double tag (GDFL and CC-by-SA) from the period before the new uploader (my recent uploads are all CC-by-SA tagged). How do reusers attribute the double-tagged items? Do I need to update all of my files to remove the GDFL tags? Jane023 (talk) 14:09, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
No, Jane023! Do not remove old license tags. Double licensed images can be used under one of the available licenses. This provides more freedom for re-users. You can add a new license if you want but removing is not permitted.
Hmm, OK, but are you saying that it is up to the reuser to choose which license option to follow? Because it would be very unpleasant to follow both license requirements, in my opinion. Jane023 (talk) 15:33, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
Rather impossible than only unpleasant. {{self}} says: You may choose one of the available licenses. -- RE rillke questions? 15:51, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
The original template that I was using through the default uploader in 2007 was PD-Self, and in 2009 I was using self|GFDL|FAL (which then became self|GFDL|Cc-by-sa-3.0-migrated|FAL by bot license migration)), so I don't believe I have any {{self}} files at all, since today my files are self|cc-by-sa-3.0-nl. I find it very strange that I am confronted by a "license du jour" result in my own "Special:ListFiles/Jane023" archive, without having consciously chosen this! How am I to communicate my desired attribution to reusers of my files if I don't understand this myself? Isn't there a "How to reuse Commons images in printed publications" page anywhere? Shouldn't there be? Jane023 (talk) 07:48, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
There is Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia. Rd232 (talk) 19:29, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Bilateral relations categories

A discussion is now underway as to the proper naming format for categories pertaining to bilateral relations between two countries (e.g. Category:Australia - United States relations). The discussion is at Commons:Categories for discussion/2011/10/Category:Bilateral relations by country. Cheers, --Skeezix1000 (talk) 14:47, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Special:MyUploads Part 2

It is proposed to add a link to Special:MyUploads at the top right, next to "My contributions". Special:MyUploads is a new function, which redirects to Special:ListFiles/username. Earlier discussion above (Commons:Village_pump/Proposals#Adding_Special:MyUploads_.22my_uploads.22_link_next_to_.22my_contributions.22) led to the development of various elements of what's needed for this, namely the Javascript and a Gadget for users to turn the new link off in their preferences. To see the script in action, add importScript('User:Rd232/myuploads.js'); to your custom Javascript page, at Special:MyPage/common.js.

  1. The new link is aimed primarily at newcomers. As the blog entry which reported the creation of the Special:MyUploads function said [1], "During our interviews & testing, most people were wondering where their uploads had gone once the upload was completed." The link is currently available as a tiny link at the top of "my contributions" (I only noticed that after re-reading the blog entry! it's tiny, and mixed in with other tiny links!) which might be OK for other wikis, but uploading being so core to Commons it really should be more prominent than that.
  2. There is a Toolserver Gallery tool, but for many users MyUploads is enough, and sending them to the Gallery is confusing and wasteful of scarce toolserver resources. Also the Gallery tool is not always available.
  3. The Toolserver Gallery link can be added at MediaWiki:Listfiles-summary (shown at the top of Special:ListFiles). That way it's accessible (and allows for some description of how it differs from ListFiles, in a relevant context), whilst users get initially pointed at ListFiles.
  4. There will be an easy way to turn off the new link (via a Gadget in their preferences), for those who don't want it.
  5. Bugzilla30522 has been filed asking for improvements to Special:ListFiles. Those improvements will be nice to have, but MyUploads is already useful enough without those improvements.

Rd232 (talk) 22:38, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Comment: I wonder if uploads via bots such as flickr2commons could be creditd to the actual uploader -- rather than to the bot, which IB is now the case? TIA, Tillman (talk) 21:20, 1 September 2011 (UTC)


Support - much easier

  1. As proposer. Rd232 (talk) 22:38, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
  2. Sure thing. I do not think it is necessary to provide a gadget to remove the future link, such a change is consensual enough I think. Jean-Fred (talk) 22:48, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
    Thanks, but I think it best to provide a gadget; for example for people with small screens the extra text may be an issue. If the gadget isn't much used, it could (like any underused gadget) be removed at some point, and those using it use the gadget's CSS in their Special:MyPage/skin.css to hide the link instead. I expect the gadget would be used enough for that not to happen though. Rd232 (talk) 23:04, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
  3. Support, I think it's a great idea. Kelly (talk) 23:18, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

  1. No, no, no! This would be equivalent to splitting the "My Contributions" page on all the other Wikimedia projects (Wikipedia, Wikibooks, etc.) into a "Contributions" one and a "My New Pages" (or "My Pages Created") one. Whoop whoop pull up Bitching Betty | Averted crashes 22:35, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
    Well I can't speak to the other projects but I reckon that idea would find some supporters on Wikipedia :) But basically, it's a false analogy, because "my new pages" are textual contributions (which is what Special:Contributions is designed for) and "my uploads" are (largely) images. Whilst Special:Contributions could in theory be merged with Special:ListFiles (which, crucially, shows previews of the files), that wouldn't happen for years even if it was thought a good idea. Even merging Special:NewFiles with Special:ListFiles, which seems pretty obvious, would probably not happen in much less than a year. And, bottom line, if it's useful here (particularly for newcomers, as some WMF research shows them having trouble finding their uploads), who cares what use analogous things might be elsewhere? Rd232 (talk) 00:27, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
  2. Oppose: Increasing the prominence of Special:ListFiles sounds like a good idea, but I don't think a link to 'My uploads' (Special:ListFiles) should be put next to the 'My contributions' link. There are already two easily-accessible links to the feature, available in two clicks from any page. Both links are in 'My contributions' -- 1) right at the top of the page, labeled 'uploads', and 2) at the bottom of the page, labeled 'User uploads'. Link (1) in 'My contributions' could probably be better placed, i.e. immediately to the right of the 'talk' link, instead of having the 'block log' link there. 'My uploads' are a subset of 'My contributions', so it makes sense to put a link to Special:ListFiles within the 'My contributions' page -- and not next to the 'My contributions' link. Emw (talk) 21:11, 28 August 2011 (UTC)


Does this really have to be a script? Of course it's easier to activate, but a native mediawiki implementation wouldn't be that difficult to develop. The opt-out gadget works with css (I had expected a js variable, but Ok), so that wouldn't be a problem. But internationalisation would be easier in translatewiki, and not using js would make the page more accessible (and also a bit faster). -- Bergi 11:10, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
We would appreciate if you develop this extension. A simple link, that sounds really easy. Upload wizard without heavy js would better, too because it could be used by more people. ;-) Unfortunately, I never worked with php. -- RE rillke questions? 11:54, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
Is it possible to make the page tell you how many uploads you have made? --Årvasbåo (talk) 14:14, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

This would be nice. a) total uploads count (log) b) number of images created by user x and alive c) live count of a) -- RE rillke questions? 18:21, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
MediaWiki implementation (development of Special:ListFiles, probably) would be great, but (a) MediaWiki development is an even more specialised skill and (b) Javascript development allows much easier and quicker feedback from users into improvements. Bugzilla30522 requested improvements to ListFiles; if we get those, that'll be a start. Maybe one day all of Rillke's script will make it into MediaWiki, but it's more likely to be 5 years away than 5 months. And having the Javascript also gives a basis for that possible MediaWiki development, because it's much easier to copy/adapt an existing structure (design/code) than start completely from scratch. Rd232 (talk) 22:11, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
Bergi's comment is just about adding the link, not creating a gallery-tool. Replacing the target of the link to a JavaScript-tool is easily possible. -- RE rillke questions? 23:55, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
I don't think Bergi's comment was about that (?) but I was actually going to suggest that it might be worth filing a bug to have a new MediaWiki option to display the "my uploads" link, pointed at Special:ListFiles, and then your script would divert that link to your script page, for those with Javascript. This would help those users with Javascript turned off. My concern was that the Javascript diverting of the link away from Special:ListFiles might be slightly delayed, and people might often click on it before it happens, and end up not seeing the script. A note/link at the top of ListFiles would help with that though, and also tell people with Javascript off what they're missing out on. This would be a pretty simple bug to implement, so there's some chance it might happen soonish, especially if we can bend the ear of a developer. Rd232 (talk) 07:34, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
File a bug, to display this link, target file-list. If a user is too fast, we can even display a note on the file-list if JavaScript is active. -- RE rillke questions? 18:21, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

Can we just close it and get it out of the sitenotice? :) Personally I don't see why this was so important to put it up for a vote in the first place - even more why it had to be advertized in the sitenotice.

  1. Add more localizations in User:Rd232/myuploads.js.
  2. Localizations of the disabling Gadget, in the format MediaWiki:Gadget-NoMyUploadsLink/de, MediaWiki:Gadget-NoMyUploadsLink/fr etc
  3. Add a clarification to MediaWiki:Listfiles-summary (possibly in MediaWiki's default for this message, via Translatewiki) When filtered by user (Special:ListFiles/username), only files where that user uploaded the most recent version of the file are shown. ✓ Done
  4. Add a link to the Toolserver Gallery in Commons' copy of MediaWiki:Listfiles-summary
  5. Put the contents of User:Rd232/myuploads.js somewhere in MediaWiki:Common.js
  6. Move User:Rd232/Gadget-NoMyUploadsLink.css to MediaWiki:Gadget-NoMyUploadsLink.css
  7. Move User:Rd232/Gadget-NoMyUploadsLink to MediaWiki:Gadget-NoMyUploadsLink

  1. Please also have it show all categories the image is sorted under. Thanks! Ingolfson (talk) 23:23, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
  2. It does not show when someone else uploaded a new version (like for example Rotatebot). /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 16:42, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
  3. Option to show all files that were originally uploaded by user xyz. Hi there, you made these suggestions to help new contributors. I experienced a problem yesterday (before knowing about this discussion) with a new user. He had uploaded several files, some of them not rotated. I helped him and set the rotatebot to heal the pictures. Afterwards this new contributor would not see those files anymore, since this list only shows those files of which he is the latest version contributor (sorry for my English). You are thinking of an extra possibility to sort the list for those files which the user has uploaded. More experienced users may understand about cropped/rotated versions and may choose the option to show only originally uploaded files, but newbies will just try to find “their” files. So I believe the standard option must be “list all files that have been uploaded by user xyz, even if somebody else overwrote that file with a newer version”. --Schwäbin (talk) 08:52, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
    Agree, by default the list should show all files a user has uploaded, regardless of what happened to the files later (with maybe some extra annotation where a file has been overwritten by someone else). That's the behaviour most users will expect, and I'm surprised it doesn't do that. Hopefully this will be done soon under Bug 30522 (but "soon" in bug terms is months...). Rd232 (talk) 01:29, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
I tend to agree. The old gallery tab (running on toolserver) showed ever image you'd uploaded, I believe. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 02:17, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
I, too, have always found it strange that the currently generated list doesn't show files that were later overwritten by another user. It would be a welcome improvement to show all files uploaded by a given user, but I agree with Rd232's suggestion that (ideally) it ought to include a notation to indicate when a given file is no longer the current version. Steve Morgan (talk) 13:19, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

The feature is very good, but I have found faults:

  • When a file has originally been uploaded at e.g. the german wikipedia and is transferred from there by a bot, the file is missing in the list. An example would be Funktionsprinzip akustisches Mikroskop.svg. Such images have to be added in the future.--Salino01 (Salino01) 05:02, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
  • There is a small bug in the program: If you have e.g. about 220 images in your list and you are displaying 50 images per side, one can switch to the next image side by clicking on the button 'next side'. If the last 20 images are displayed, the button is still highlited and switches to the first list again.--Salino01 (talk) 05:02, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Implementation II

Behind the scenes, User:Rillke has been developing a Javascript version of ListFiles which is absolutely brilliant. This script will be used in the new top-right "my uploads" link instead of ListFiles. It's still a work in progress but already amazing. To use it now, add

if (-1 != mw.config.get("wgPageName").indexOf( importScript("User:Rillke/JSONListUploads.js");

into Special:MyPage/common.js - it gives you a link to "my uploads" in the toolbox. Comments welcome (bearing in mind it's not finished). Rd232 (talk) 10:44, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

JSONListUploads.js Discussion

Currently there is a link to JSONListUploads.js at Special:MyUploads (in the English interface only). To get this great tool to all languages translations of MediaWiki:Listfiles-summary would be needed. But this needs a translation for every language → The Link should be in the default translation. And if we include the link in the translation directly we should templateify the Tool's URL. Otherwise we have to change masses of translations if the link changes in the future.

Another option would be: We inject (directly below the headline) a link via JavaScript if the page's "wgCanonicalSpecialPageName" = "Listfiles" and delete the link from the interface message (doesn't need to be localized locally as this is done via translatewiki). Users without JS are no worse off since they cannot use the JSONListUploads.js anyway. The only question is: how to internationalize the link-accompanying text ("More options are available in the Gallery tool")? Probably in the .js directly (with fallback to English). Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 22:56, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Clarifying attribution requirements

A recent VP discussion prompted some thoughts on making it clearer how reusers should attribute credit.

Currently we have

  1. Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia, which isn't really clear on this
  2. Commons:Credit line which does the job, but isn't easy to find.
  3. a small "use this file" link at the top of the file description page, which is easily overlooked. (It's bigger for logged-out users though.)
  4. {{Credit line}} which works with the {{Information}} and {{Artwork}} templates; it is added into the "other_fields" parameter of {{Information}} and {{Artwork}}. Note that {{Artwork}} has a "credit line" parameter which is used for attributing credit to donors of artworks, and has nothing to do with the image license.
  5. User attribution templates, most of which are not listed in Category:Attribution templates.

We can talk about other licenses too, but I think the biggest problem is with CC-BY-SA (as it's the most common requiring attribution). The license template states You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work). But typically the author doesn't specify anything, which can easily be confusing.

There are several things we can do:

  1. Merge Commons:Credit line into Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia. I think that would help a lot, since the latter is linked from the Information/Artwork templates under "reusing this file".
  2. Make the "use this file" link much more prominent. Put it next to the "reusing this file" link to Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia. (Some way of explaining the difference is needed then.) And/or make the link part of every license template, so that it appears at the bottom of the Licensing section.
  3. Have each license template display the standard way of attributing credit for that license (with a parameter to optionally suppress it, though it should anyway be made clear that any specific author wishes override the standard). Commons:Credit line provides guidance on the standard ways, and the relevant templates can incorporate these.
  4. Create a {{user standard attribution}} template which, given the uploader's user name, displays the contents of the page Username/attribution, if it exists (which is a page in the user's userspace using the {{credit line}} field. This would reduce the proliferation of template-space templates used for this purpose.
  5. Add an "image attribution" field to the {{Information}} and {{Artwork}} templates, so that it's clearer how to add a custom attribution.

Well, those are some thoughts, let's have some discussion. Comments please! Rd232 (talk) 13:12, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

In order to address the problem I made my own permission template. User:Nevit/Not-PD I tried to address the major problem I encounter: Usage without attribution outside commons. I added how to attribute paragraph above license template and a couple of extra words below. --Nevit Dilmen (talk) 16:55, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
Very nice overview ; but you did miss the attribution parameter of the CC templates. See for example File:GLAM WIKI UK 2010 - Tom Morgan - National Portrait Gallery - 3.JPG. I think this is the simplest way to specify a custom attribution. Jean-Fred (talk) 17:13, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
(Which does not address your proposal entirely, only 4 & 5. I should not read too fast.) Jean-Fred (talk) 17:18, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
I created Commons:Credit line and {{Credit line}} after some discussions on VP without any knowledge of Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia existence. I agree that they could be merged; however, what I was aiming in Commons:Credit line was to provide look-up tables of examples of minimal attribution for each license without much talk. May be we can copy some examples from it to Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia, but keep the Commons:Credit line as page of examples.
I am not sure about adding "image attribution" field to the {{Information}} and {{Artwork}} templates. That was my original proposal but as many other proposals there was no interest in it. That is why I created {{Credit line}} and why others added attribution fields to many license templates. So now we have two competing standards, I am not sure if we need a third one. I actually like attribution parameter in license template; however, I am rather unhappy that requested attributions are usually not valid. For example attribution in File:GLAM WIKI UK 2010 - Tom Morgan - National Portrait Gallery - 3.JPG asks for "© Benjamin Smith / Wikimedia Commons" omitting "GFDL / CC-BY-SA-3.0-2.5-2.0-1.0" part required by the license. That is providing wrong information.
Also lets not forget about "use this file" icon which creates attribute line based on the image data using some gadget (not sure which one). That is the 3rd way to get attribution line, but I do not know where is the documentation of that gadget. I also do not know if it follows author's wishes by reading the other 2 ways. --Jarekt (talk) 18:38, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
This is MediaWiki:Stockphoto.js. It does leverage on {{Credit line}} & attribution parameter.
I think the way the attribution parameter is asked in CC templates is fine and logical : in our example, the author wishes to be attributed as "© Benjamin Smith / Wikimedia Commons". Indeed, this is only one part of the credit line, so maybe the template should render the full credit line. Which is given by the "Use this file" button.
If there is consensus to do so, I think we should consider retiring {{Credit line}} in favor of attribution parameter. I think it makes more sense. Jean-Fred (talk) 19:25, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for those initial comments - I'm glad there is some interest in discussing this. However I'm not sure I've kicked off the discussion in the clearest possible way, because several related but separable issues are mixed up. I was trying to survey how things are done (and missed the attribution parameter in some licenses - thanks Jean Fred), but we really need to think about what problems we're trying to address.

  1. Standard attributions. Making it very clear to reusers on a file page (a) that a standard attribution is required (for some licenses). Jarekt pointed out some 2009 discussions on VP where this was raised. (b) make it clear what the nature of that standard attribution is. The information in the "use this file" link (MediaWiki:Stockphoto.js) and in Commons:Credit line needs to be more prominent. On a file page at least the minimum attribution needs to be visible without needing to click (Stockphoto.js can provide more attribution options, and the link to it needs to be more prominent - not necessarily bigger, but more closely linked with attribution requirement).
  2. Custom attributions. Making it easier for uploaders to specify custom attributions, including custom attributions that are reusable across files via a template. It makes sense to store this in the user's userspace in a standard location/format, rather than (as now) use templates in template space. Templates and tools can then access this data more easily. It also makes it easier to develop and display contextual guidance on creating such custom attributions (via editnotice perhaps), so that they make sense and don't conflict with license or other requirements.
  3. Attributions overview. Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia needs to contain this information as well; and looking at it again, I think merging Commons:Credit line into makes a lot of sense (eg Credit line is currently in only 2 languages), putting everything reusers need in one place.

The issue of having two competing ways for displaying custom attribution data ({{Credit line}} and the attribution parameter in license templates) for me maps the overlap between the {{Information}} template and the license templates. I don't really see that it's helpful to do it this way. It would make more sense to me if {{Information}} did everything on a typical file page: tell it what licenses apply (none of this "permission: see below" unhelpful confusion) and it displays the relevant license template(s), together with any standard or custom attribution data. It can put the license templates below the summary box, so the aesthetics don't change much (apart from losing the Licensing header). Rd232 (talk) 23:47, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

It seems to me that stockphoto ("use this file") does a fairly good job in showing that there is some attribution to be made and it is very visible for non logged in users (who I guess are the most likely to commit this kind of copyvio). But I think that hurried users will not want to go into the details of help page or even license tags just for using an image. (after all the site advertises itself as "freely resusable" so one might not car about the details). I think that a small license tag near the license would be a good compelement to a lengthy license tag one screen away that many people do not care to read. I would suggest either add another icon on the "use this file"
I would imagine something like this.    Attribution: John Doe
Some rights reserved // linking to the license tag
Gnome-emblem-web.svg use this
Tango style Wikipedia Icon.svg use this
Gnome-mail-send.svg email
Gnome-document-save.svg download
I would even suggest to replace the remove the "informations" link from this bar because it links to a lengthy -so scary- page while all info should already be in the license. We could have a link to Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia in a "learn more" section", for instance at the end of the license tag. I think people we need primarily deal with are those that are unwilling to read long text for the license.--Zolo (talk) 09:23, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Adding CatDown link for categories

I think will be good idea to add link to CatDown to categories tool box or to tabs. If it'll be implemented as gadget, this gadget could be default one. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:49, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

I'm cautious about adding prominent links to Toolserver tools, because the Toolserver is always having capacity issues. Adding as a gadget would be an option, but not on by default. Such a gadget could add a link to CatDown into the Toolbox on category pages (so that clicking the link would prepopulate CatDown's category field with the relevant category). User:Rillke is one who could knock up such a gadget. Alternatively, it could be added to MediaWiki:Gadget-ExtraTabs2.js. Rd232 (talk) 16:18, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
