Just a thought. Can we make these combined with a few licenses? I was just thinking it would make the file pages less cluttered is all.--Canoe1967 (talk) 01:06, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

I'm not very good with templates, but if we can mix the licenses with it, that sounds like a good idea to me. :) Even though most content is CC-By-SA, I didn't want to tie it to that just in case there was an odd exception. Would it be possible, do you think, to have it default to CC-By-SA with optional variance? --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 01:21, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
I sux at templates as well. Many here will be able to add it I think. En:wp may have people as well that are easy to find. Ref desk computers there may be the fastest. Want me to ask and link to here?--Canoe1967 (talk) 01:30, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
I added another variable for that. :) Philippe (WMF) (talk) 04:08, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. If the creator is left blank will it be anonymous or break something?--Canoe1967 (talk) 04:14, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

James just made it better. Now it'll default to CC-by-SA, unless a different license is put in. If creator is blank, it'll look stupid, but no, it won't break :) Philippe (WMF) (talk) 04:41, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
We wouldn't want WMF to look stupid so could we suggest they use Staff, WMF imager, or WMF sub-contractor type thing if they want to be anon? I don't know how rare that is though.
  • Woot! Hooray for people who can make templates. :D I was hoping to fix it so that if there's no "name" parameter, the first and final sentences would be removed. I'm not sure how to do that. (<--Code for "I have no idea how to do that.") --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 12:44, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Anon draft[edit]

Similar to this? I just copy/pasted and trimmed. Anyone can feel free to edit. I dunno how to remove the 'name' parameter, could someone else do that?--Canoe1967 (talk) 17:30, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

This work was created for the Wikimedia Foundation. Copyright in this work is either owned/co-owned by the WMF or the content has been licensed to the WMF. The uploader asserts that he or she is acting as an agent for the WMF in uploading this content. The license associated with this file is CC-BY-SA 3.0.

Some points[edit]

I appreciate the effort but to make it really good it should be made like a standard source template. So just the source of the work and beneath it the license template. The template should be made so it can be translated. This is kind of hard to do if you never done this before, but it looks like {{WMF-staff-upload}} was created.

Oh! Thanks for letting me know. :) I guess I'd best update the village pump conversation and, unless there are objections to it, start working with the staff on how and when to implement it. :D --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 14:04, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
