Estão pondo minhas fotos para eliminação. Foto da igreja antiga de Brumado, Praça Armindo Azevedo em Brumado, e outras fotos antigas, porém as imagens são livre para uso em qualquer página, ou trabalho, desde que cite a fonte e a fonte já está citada, mas eu não sei como tirar aquele formulário onde diz :"Eu, titular de tal imagem e blablablá...."; quando vou carregar as imagen não dá uma opção de mostrar de imediato onde está a permissão e quando procuro uma opção dizendo que está em algum sítio da net, vem um monte de porém muito complicado. As imagens são permitidas.

Thanks for: Paraty categorization[edit]

Darwin thank you so much for your hard work on categorizing architecture in Paraty. I'm learning so much from that. I'm hoping to do the same for photographs taken in Cachoeira, Bahia and other municipalities I've visited in the Recôncavo. Take care. Prburley (talk)

Dear DarwIn

In the past, you contributed to the Wiki Loves Africa competition.

  • 1st prize: US$1000

Brazil photo copyright[edit]

Hi DarwIn, I would like to ask your opinion regarding photos of Léa Campos from the 60s-70s in the pt:UFRGS digital repository. These photos seem to be marked with a noncommercial licence, example. Is this valid? Joofjoof (talk) 09:15, 3 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Joofjoof Hey! Sorry for the late answer. They may be PD, indeed, but I need to see them to be sure. Unfortunately the links you sent me seem to be (temporarily?) down? :\ Darwin Ahoy! 09:42, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Could you try the links once more? Some of the photos are also featured here, but without a license given. Joofjoof (talk) 01:24, 22 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Save the date: Commons Photographers meeting next week[edit]

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

Please save the date: on Saturday, June 19th, our next virtual Zoom meeting is going to take place. As you know, one goal of these meetings is to share knowledge about different types of photography. This time, we've lined up the following presentations:

  • Photography in Nigeria
  • Photographing vehicles
  • I started printing my images – here’s what I've learned so far…

If you'd like to participate in this event, please consider signing up on this page. Also, if you'd like to present at one of the next meetings, please send me a quick note. Sharing your experiences and learnings with others can make a huge difference!

I wish you, your family, and your friends all the best! Hope to see you on the 19th.

Warmly, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 03:13, 8 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]



I am messaging you because a contest for a sound logo for Wikimedia is being developed and your opinion as a Wikimedia Commons admin is appreciated. My team would like to know if it is possible for the top finalist sound logos in the contest to have attribution temporarily hidden from public view until all the votes are final? The idea is to let the public judge the sound logo contestants based on the merit of the logo, not the person or people who made it. Again, any feedback is appreciated.

Thank you,

This Sunday![edit]

Hi, this is just a quick reminder: the next virtual meeting of our user group is scheduled for Sunday, June 19, 16:00 UTC. Topics are: “Photography in Nigeria”, “Photographing Vehicles”, “Wildlife photography and citizen science”, and “I started printing my images – here’s what I've learned so far…”. I'm thrilled about this great agenda and I'm looking forward to connecting with you again. Stay safe and all the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 03:08, 18 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Frank Schulenburg Hi! Unfortunately I was with a cold this weekend, and didn't even went to the laptop :\ It's a pity I've missed that meeting. How was it? Are there some notes, or highlights? Darwin Ahoy! 09:21, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hi DarwIn, I very much enjoyed the meeting. We've already lined up speakers for the next event and Shreya (one of our Events Coordinators) is planning a workshop about postprocessing. So, please keep the User Group's page on your watchlist for upcoming meetings. We didn't take notes; having 33 people show up and several of them joining our group as new members was my personal highlight. All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 15:36, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
