Problem with upload link[edit]

The upload link results in an error message:

"Wiki Loves Folklore 2020 is finished. You may still share your images, but they will not be part of the contest."

Regards, HaeB (talk) 01:19, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

It looks like Tulsi Bhagat may have fixed it with a workaround - thanks! (Still looks like a weird bug.)
Regards, HaeB (talk) 04:07, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
@HaeB: Thank you for leaving the message here. Yes, It's fixed now. I will look into it deeply later. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 04:25, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

But the advertised notice shows that it expires on the 29th of. February 2020 Regina Obilo (talk) 14:47, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

@Regina Obilo: And? Yes, it expires on February 29. There’s a software bug that caused the upload page to show the wrong banner, but it’s now worked around, and everything else has always said February 29. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 14:55, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

@Tiven2240: I think this section is worth kept here: the bug report hasn’t got even a single comment yet, and I’m not sure what will happen when the contest ends, it will have to be manually reviewed on March 1. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:01, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

This uploading /network or server issues again Wiki folklore how can you help. I just can't upload for close to 7hours now. All for the love of the competition. Regina Obilo (talk) 20:36, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

What are the necessary things that must be uploaded to meet the criteria? Zufar khan (talk) 16:47, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Darn, just missed the submission deadline. I have some amazing photos of the T’boli tribe in South Cotabato, Philippines from a recent trip, and some even better memories. PeterEganJr (talk) 08:18, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

@PeterEganJr: That’s unfortunate. The good news is that you can still upload your photos, just you won’t win prices. This is the true voluntarism, when one doesn’t get any money or other compensation for their work, so please upload the photos! —Tacsipacsi (talk) 01:07, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

That’s great news! I will indeed.

My wife and father were both born in different countries than where I was born and raised (USA).

Wife is from the indigenous T’boli tribe of South Cotabato. We have some great photos from my time spent there visiting her family.

I don’t know how to upload photos as I’ve never done it before on Wikimedia. I’m pretty sure I can figure it out though.

I appreciate you informing me of that. If I’d have realized I could still upload them I’d have done it.

It’s never been about the money.

I’ve been to relatively obscure places near her family’s home that are just amazing in every way, including and especially culture.

Some of the photos are amazing though. IMO at least five or six (out of 200) that I would have no doubt make for solid contributions.

I’m new here in terms of being a registered user. I’m learning though and I appreciate you helping accelerate the learning curve. PeterEganJr (talk) 08:26, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

Videos or games? --✝iѵɛɳ२२४०†ลℓк †๏ мэ 02:20, 15 February 2020 (UTC)


how can we upload these photos —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 13:42, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

First of all, you have to create an account or log in into Wikimedia Commons—registration is required for uploading in order to prevent mass upload of inappropriate files. After that, you can press the blue “Upload Media” button on the contest main page (or click this upload link) to access the upload wizard of the contest, which guides you through the submit steps. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 13:47, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

Difficult process of proving ownership of images[edit]

I am still irritated that as a lifetime professional photographer Wikipedia has not accepted my (donated) photographs due to my inability to prove my ownership of copyright. It's ridiculous in this age of Pinterest, Facebook, and the massive use of imagery online.

Oh, and the image in question? A rare desert snail. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 16:36, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Can you provide us more details on this? The username from which the image was uploaded and Ticket number if there was any email exchange. Maybe we can help :) --✝iѵɛɳ२२४०†ลℓк †๏ мэ 02:18, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Wie kann man Volkslieder aus Deutschland in das Wiki Loves Folklore hochladen? —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 23:51, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

Du kannst zum Beispiel Video- oder Audioaufnahmen machen, und sie hochladen. Du kannst auch Menschen fotografieren, weil sie Volkslieder singen, obwohl diese Fotos weniger mit den Lieder zu tun haben. – Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:21, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Films in Public Domain (PD)[edit]

Shaman instead of a medicine and hard labor in the Altai village, 1930s, fragment of the film Alone
Altai nature and sounds of vargan, fragment of the film Alone

I uploaded two fragments of the old film related to the folklore topic. This film is in PD. Does it suitable for this competition? Or should I be the author of the film? --Andrew Krizhanovsky (talk) 09:30, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Country names[edit]

I wasn't quite sure how to categorize the island of Bonaire in countries (it's the "B" in the BES Islands), so I left that part blank on my uploads. Will that create a problem? --Atsme Talk 📧 23:55, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

The first round of Wiki Loves Folklore[edit]

Bonjour, je viens de procéder à une présélection des photos soumises au challenge. De nombreux clichés me posent question, soit qu’ils représentent des couchers de soleil, des feux d’artifice, des paysages ou encore des portraits, des animaux... qui ne sont pas en rapport avec les thèmes du concours. Par ailleurs d’autres ne sont pas catégorisées et ne comportent aucune définition. Faut-il les disqualifier ? Merci bien cordialement,

Hello, I have just made a preselection of the photos submitted to the challenge. Many pictures ask me questions, either that they represent sunsets, fireworks, landscapes or portraits, animals... that are not related to the themes of the competition. In addition, others are not categorized and do not include any definition. Should they be disqualified? Thank you, best regards,--Pierre André (talk) 09:25, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

@Pierre André Leclercq: Those who don't fall into the scope of this competition must be disqualified. Feel free to ask if you need any help. Regards --✝iѵɛɳ२२४०†ลℓк †๏ мэ 17:54, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
@Tiven2240: Ok! thank you for the information, so I disqualify portraits, markets, landscapes and graffiti which are not elements of the floklore. Regards,--Pierre André (talk) 20:48, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
@Tiven2240: I have examined more than 5800 photos while remaining very broad in their validation. However, I can review those that are supposed to be traditional cuisines, when in fact they present dishes that are found in all countries of the world (steak fries, rice, fish ...) Regards.- (Français: Bonjour Tiven2240 j’ai procédé à l’examen de plus de 5800 photos en restant très large dans leur validation. Toutefois, je peux revoir celles qui sont sensées être des cuisines traditionnelles, alors qu’en fait elles présentent des mets que l’on trouve dans tous les pays du monde (steak, frites, riz, poissons…) Cordialement,--Pierre André (talk) 10:29, 18 April 2020 (UTC)


When will the result of wiki loves folklore India will be announced? Garvit Khanna (talk) 14:55, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

Hello Garvit Khanna! The results will be declared in the last week of May 2020. Thank you!

Is the result for Wiki loves folklore out?[edit]

Hey! it is around 14th of April already. What is keeping the result from being published? Is it going to be after 14th of April? Where will the result be published so that l will be able to check it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Regina Obilo (talk • contribs) 20:19, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

Hello! The results will be declared around end of the May 2020. Thank you for your patience! Wikilover90 (talk) 01:51, 15 April 2020 (UTC)

Am not comfortable with that. Why the sudden change in date? The competitors are not aware of the change in date. Speaking for myself am just getting to know about it. There should be a specific day in the month of March so it will be easy for all to check and know the result . In the spirit of fair play. Wiki loves folklore is all inclusive so the love should spread to all even in the area of spreading and receiving information. Regina Obilo (talk) 10:53, 15 April 2020 (UTC)

@Regina Obilo: The exact date has already been added to the page, and, of course, the change is because of the ongoing pandemic—people can’t meet because of social distancing, have to stay home with their children because the schools are closed, horribile dictu they have to go to hospital… Please be patient with anyone who delays with anything, in any field of life, now and in the coming months. Thanks! —Tacsipacsi (talk) 18:36, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

No thanks to the competitor who pointed out of admin staff's negligence of the Wikl loves folklore competitors in the area of giving information. Judging from what Tacsipacsi said and confirming from the project page l am patient. It is Wiki's project and not mine am a competitor. If am given the opportunity to assist or work as the admin staff maybe my contribution would be of great assistance. Working from home wouldn't be a bad idea. Its majorly e-based work. Just in case from now going into the future l am available to work especially e-based. I feel for people who are at home unintentionally away from work and those who have to go through the challenge of keeping their kids at home especially the admin staff. I understand how they feel l have been in the classroom teaching so l know how naughty kids could be sometimes. To those visiting the hospital take care. Praying for God's intervention.

Yes. And we have sent you too link for digital postcards. Check your at your talkpage. --✝iѵɛɳ२२४०†ลℓк †๏ мэ 13:10, 17 July 2020 (UTC)
As there is nothing mentioned specifically regarding that "I was among the top 500 uploaders for Wiki loves Folklore 2020 Photographic competition" , I can't understand whether it is a general token of appreciation or something else. Anyway, thank you.

Another thing is, will we anyhow get some real/ physical postcards from you after the situation normalizes?, that will be more appreciable I guess. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Milandeep Sarkar (talk • contribs) 15:01, 17 July 2020 (UTC)
