Initial text[edit]

I added license information to Template:Walters Art Museum license/en. Please verify for clarity and correctness. I think we should add "Artwork" and "Photograph and Descriptions" sections and add {{PD-old-100}} or similar templates in the first one and CC/GNU templates in the second one. --Jarekt (talk) 13:51, 17 February 2012 (UTC)


“WMF's position has always been that faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain, and that claims to the contrary represent an assault on the very concept of a public domain.”

Why dont we add OTRS and source with {{Walters Art Museum - cooperation}} and add the license separately, using the standard file-by-file customizable tag system ?--Zolo (talk) 08:01, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

OTRS I think goes with the license but we can restore the original {{Walters Art Museum - cooperation}}. The problem is that we will still need some box to explain nuances of the license like CC/GNU for the photograph + text and probably PD-old for the artwork itself. So we would end up with 2 boxes. --Jarekt (talk) 12:06, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
Okay, if the template final template is as long as it is now, it may make sense to have it all in the same place. But still I think there should an option to remove the "CC-BY-SA" tag for PD-art photos. --Zolo (talk) 08:23, 24 February 2012 (UTC)


In German and some other languages, nouns begin with a majuscule (description -> Beschreibung), so {{int:wm-license-creator-description}} should not always be "lcfirst:". I am not sure how it should be handled. The cleanest solution would clearly be to remove capital letters from {{int:wm-license-creator-description}} and similar messages. But it require changes many translatewik messages and add uppercase in all templates that require it. --Zolo (talk) 08:23, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

We can create a template with language specific capitalization. We can also switch to all capitals headers, although that might be a bit obnoxious. --Jarekt (talk) 12:16, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I havre created {{ucnouns}}. I do not like it much but it works (though I had to use an "ifeq:" in {{Walters Art Museum license}}. For some reason, {{if: {{ucfirst:{{int:lang}}}} | did not work). --Zolo (talk) 12:49, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
