Our first steps tour and our FAQ will help you a lot after registration. They explain how to customize the interface (for example the language), how to upload files and our basic licensing policy. You don't need technical skills in order to contribute here. Be bold contributing here and assume good faith for the intentions of others. This is a wiki—it is really easy.

Transmission icon.png Goodies, tips and tricks
  • Put Babel boxes on your user page so others know what languages you can speak and indicate your graphic abilities.
  • All your uploads are stored in your personal gallery
  • Please sign your name on Talk pages by typing ~~~~
  • Use the CommonSense tool to find good categories for your files (then other people can find them too!)
  • To link to an image page without embedding the image, type: [[:Image:Foo.jpg]], which produces: Image:Foo.jpg
  • If you're copying files from another project, be sure to use the CommonsHelper
Nuvola filesystems trashcan full.png Made a mistake?
  • Did you want to rename or move a file? Simply upload the file again and mark the old one like this: {{bad name|correct name}}
  • For more information read the full deletion guidelines

No fair use[edit]

Hello.

The old logos of KDE are probably free and might be under the LGPL, like the new ones. A proof is needed though.

On the other hand, “I'm allowed to upload this files as there's no commercial intention and are uploaded to use to write about KDE project” (i.e. a fair use claim) is not valid for Commons, because Commons is not an encyclopedia, and it only accepts free images. Please see Commons:Fair use for details on why fair use is not allowed. Also, tagging them with {{GFDL}} was simply wrong, because you did not know if they were under GFDL.

Thanks.

I'm sorry for the inconvenient. As I understand from here ( http://www.kde.org/stuff/clipart.php ) the LGPL license is applicable to both the new logos and the old logos. And from here: http://techbase.kde.org/index.php?title=Policies/Licensing_Policy , point 7, I understand that logos are and must have always been GPL/LGPL/BSD/X11/MIT licensed. If a formal confirmations is necessary ask and I'd directly contact with the project or KDE e.v.

Actually, trademark fair use is usually OK (I guess I have misunderstood your intent there). As long as the logos' copyright is under the LGPL, no copyright fair use is needed.
Both statements about LGPL in http://www.kde.org/stuff/clipart.php appear to be in the section about the current official logos, which gave me small doubts about the licensing of the older logos.

Warning sign
This media was probably deleted.
A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:ShowFoto kde4.png, was missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status. The file probably has been deleted. If you've got all required information, request undeletion providing this information and the link to the concerned file ([[:File:ShowFoto kde4.png]]).

If you created the content yourself, enter {{own}} as the source. If you did not add a licensing template, you must add one. You may use, for example, {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} or {{Cc-zero}} to release certain rights to your work.

If someone else created the content, or if it is based on someone else's work, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so.

Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!

  • As a note, It was an screenshot I took myself of KDE's Showfoto. See showfoto at docs.kde.org for more information about the application and license. Mgl.branco (talk) 10:57, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
