~didigitallibrarian Hello, on the Main contest page the deadline is said to be "Deadline for submissions: February 28, 2021 23:59 (UTC)" however when I uploaded the pictures right now, I see a banner saying that "Wiki Loves Folklore 2021 is finished. You may still share your images, but they will not be part of the contest." Can you please confirm if my images will be part of the contest as they were submitted before the deadline specified in the main page? Ioannes2909 (talk) 11:19, 28 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I guess the message is clear "but they will not be part of the contest".--Liridon (talk) 13:47, 1 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not if the information on the main page indicates otherwise. That's why I politely asked if someone can please confirm (so nobody has to guess). If someone could take ownership of either error on the main page or setting the banner too early so I know which information is correct that would be appreciated.

Probably will be included, as I see the campaing date has been updatated until 1 March 2021. Snce this talk page is more general I also recommend you to write on the talk page of current contest Commons talk:Wiki Loves Folklore 2021.--Liridon (talk) 17:31, 2 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Upload more than one image at a time[edit]

is there a way to upload more than one image at a time? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mlcred (talk • contribs) 16:48, 8 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Mlcred: Yes, the upload wizard lets you select many files at once. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 23:10, 8 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wiki Loves Folklore[edit]

On the Wiki Loves Folklore project, please I need to know if the photos to be submitted would need our copyright/watermark/signature on them.

Thanks ~didigitallibrarian SIEBHONU (talk) 05:28, 9 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Thanks for your enquiry, yes Photos should be free from copyright, watermark and signature. If they do have Copyright and signature you need to send the OTRS procedure to them to transfer ownership. Best Joy Agyepong (talk) 18:40, 9 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, files don’t need to be free from copyright, watermark and signature. Files must be in the public domain or available under a free license (the latter means the copyright holder still retains the copyright and allows usage only in accordance with a license, which must be quite permissive, but the copyright owner may reserve certain rights). Using watermark and signature is strongly discouraged, but (as far as I know) their presence doesn’t disqualify you from the contest. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 23:37, 9 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you very much

The banner is breaking all the RTL Wikipedias[edit]

I woke up and googled something in Hebrew, and instead of reading the article, I got white screen. The reason for it is the wrong css included in the banner: text-indent: -1000em; It affects all RTL languages, all pages, all mobile devices. Makes me wonder if anyone even cares that the banner is not breaking the sites. Uziel302 (talk) 07:46, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Homepage reorganization[edit]

Hi everyone, I have been looking at the homepage and I feel it will be more aesthetic for readers alike if the section

== Winning pictures in former editions== have their content arranged in descending order. like 2022 images coming first, then to the 2021, to 2020 and finally to the 2019 winning images.

Public institution collaboration best practices[edit]


A regional government institution dedicated to heritage has asked me about how they could involve in the contest. They know they can promote it through their networks but are interested in going deeper. My question is, are there any documented best practices on how can an institute can involve in the contest? Thanks. —Ismael Olea (talk) 15:59, 8 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
