wrong continent[edit]

File:Medicinal Herbs.jpg is very likely not taken in Africa, and it surely is not representative of Africa. -- Tuválkin 09:13, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

This is a disgrace: After 7 years of Wiki Loves Africa there should be enough material to promote the 8th without resorting to unrelated stock photos. And there actually is, not to mention the many of photos of Africa uploaded outside this campaign. -- Tuválkin 06:53, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Dear Tuválkin, thank you for your concerns. Part of the reason we have Wiki Loves Africa is because there are not enough images representing Africa on Commons. The images used on the Commons page are not 'stock images' they are taken from the Commons repository; the images are also not meant to be from Africa, they are meant to show examples of the kinds of images and themes we are looking for in the contest and were chosen for their reflection of the theme (regardless of where their origin was). They are merely meant as suggestions. Your point has been made; perhaps you could suggest replacements instead of just criticising what is existing. Islahaddow (talk) 08:56, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
  • Glad to see these images replaced with better ones. -- Tuválkin 10:40, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
