Hello, I and others recognized that there are some countries that made a facebook page. But there seems to be a problem, the legal terms of facebook and the free licenses from the images from Wikimedia Commons (exept public domain images) seem incompatible. Please clear this and remove images from facebook if necessary. Best regards --Pustekuchen2014 (talk) 10:17, 22 March 2014 (UTC)[]

hello. when using images from Wikimedia Commons, we give the link to the original file, name of the author and all the license information needed (and the file uploaded is usually a smaller one) --アンタナナ 10:39, 22 March 2014 (UTC)[]
Ok, but this is not the main point. The real problem is this facebook says here: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook. You are just not in the position to grant this to facebook. This can only grant the author of the image (if I understand this the right way). --Pustekuchen2014 (talk) 10:53, 22 March 2014 (UTC)[]


Hello, Map in main page is outdated and Kosovo appear to be part of Serbia, which is not OK. Please remove it or update it.--Liridon (talk) 12:21, 15 November 2016 (UTC)[]

@Base: it would be great if you could update File:WLE Participating Countries World Map.svg. Holger1959 (talk) 15:20, 15 November 2016 (UTC)[]

Structured Data on Commons and Wiki Loves... campaigns: wishes for UploadWizard?[edit]

Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons (SDC) will become available this year. With SDC, Wikimedians can add data from Wikidata directly to files on Wikimedia Commons.

Benefits include multilinguality of Commons files (users can find and describe files on Commons in many languages), and machine-readable data with better APIs, that offer more advanced possibilities to build applications like Monumental.

In the not so far future, you will also be able to organize Wiki Loves... (Monuments, Earth, Africa, Art, Love, ...) campaigns on Wikimedia Commons with structured data. (This is entirely optional, but maybe some of you are already keen to do this, especially if you already have source data for your campaigns in Wikidata!)

In the course of 2019, the SDC development team wants to improve Wikimedia Commons' UploadWizard to support the campaigns that want to be powered by Structured Data 'new style'.

Do you have ideas and wishes for this? The team wants to hear which structured data features you want to see in UploadWizard, and we are now organizing a consultation about this over the next two weeks. This page gives more context, and links to where you can leave feedback. We're collecting this first round of input until April 17. Many thanks in advance for all your ideas!

Idea: a special award category for 'endangered' nature in 2020[edit]

Hi! At this year's Wikimania, I had the idea of creating a special award category or something similar for photographs depicting 'endangered' nature. Would this be something you would be interested in, and what be a good place to discuss it? Thanks, --Gnom (talk) 19:10, 15 September 2019 (UTC)[]

Now that the 2019 competition is over, I wanted to revisit this idea... Where is the best place to discuss this? Thanks, --Gnom (talk) 12:27, 8 December 2019 (UTC)[]

Secure version of is misconfigured[edit]

As of 2020-05-16 18:00 UTC, is down. I am seeing a "Apache 2 Test Page powered by CentOS" message indicating that the site "is either experiencing problems or is undergoing routine maintenance." Peaceray (talk) 18:06, 16 May 2020 (UTC)[]

Ah, okay got it. works, but does not. I have a browser extension that defaults everything to https instead of http. This still should be fixed so it works for both or Who can I contact about this? Peaceray (talk) 01:14, 17 May 2020 (UTC)[]
I got an email back from Anastasia Petrova indicating that they will look into the problem. I think we can consider this issue closed. Peaceray (talk) 16:37, 18 May 2020 (UTC)[]

What about 2021[edit]

Is there a contest in 2021? greetings in --Z thomas 07:16, 9 March 2021 (UTC)[]
