Commons:WikiProject Creator

From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository
Jump to: navigation, search

This WikiProject is dedicated to the creation, use and maintenance of templates in the Creator namespace. All pages in that namespace should use {{Creator}} template and be used in author/artist fields of {{Painting}}/{{Information}} templates. Ideally all files of known authors claiming Public domain due to copyright expiration should use {{Creator}} template to support their claims.

Creator pages should be brief but provide handy links to relevant galleries on Commons or articles in Wikipedias, where more information can be found.

At the moment there are 32,616 {{Creator}} templates.

If you have questions regarding the use or handling of creator pages please ask on the this discussion page.
