Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically marked as "reviewed". This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to make it easier for users that are monitoring Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, the Flickr upload feature and an increased number of batch-uploads in UploadWizard, uploading of freely licensed MP3 files and an increased limit for page renames per minute are now available to you.

South Africa video[edit]

Hi Victor, when Sue Gardner showed your video of the appeal from South African schoolchildren, that for me was the most moving moment in Wikimania this year. I've seen the page and photos from your trip, but I don't see the video itself online anywhere. I do a lot of outreach work in the education sector and I'd love to be able to show this very powerful piece (I already find your other work extremely useful and illuminating). Is it going to be online, or is it available already and I haven't found it? Thanks in advance for any response, MartinPoulter (talk) 15:48, 25 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi - it's not online yet, we're still tweaking details to maximize the impact the video generates when published. I'm happy you like it! Please be patient, we will likely publish a piece on the blog when it's public. Victorgrigas (talk) 15:58, 25 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I understand. It's just hard to contain my excitement. Best wishes, MartinPoulter (talk) 13:08, 27 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Another version of File:Arabic Wikipedians Wikimania 2013.JPG[edit]

During Wikimania 2013 a few people took pictures of the arab wikipedians such as this one. On the same occasion, someone took a picture of all of them + 2 members of WMIL (myself and Chen Davidi). I was wondering if it was you. The picture should look pretty much the same (same background, same time) but it includes two more people. Thank you in advance. Tomer A.

Translation request at Wikipedia en español[edit]

Hi Victor Grigas;

You has left a translation request at Donald Trump's talk page at Spanish Wikipedia

By following the links provided by you, it is not clear if you requested a translation from Spanish to English or from English to Spanish. It seems you are requesting from Spanish to English, because the particular controversy «2015 Mexico comments» is no longer available in the English version. In Spanish something similar already exists in the section «Polémica sobre opinión de Donald Trump hacia la comunidad mexicana» (Controversy about Donald Trump's view towards the Mexican community).

Thank you so much for your attention.

Sincerely;

How did you make this video? What program is needed to make a video like this?--Porbóllett (talk) 18:27, 27 May 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi! I'm happy to answer - First, I searched for still images, videos and gifs that might show a range of types of knowledge. I then looked on Free Music Archive ( http://freemusicarchive.org/ ) for music that might fit the style I was going for, and fit the licensing requirements. After I had a folder of these files, I used Final Cut Pro (proprietary software) to edit the footage together. For the .webm videos, I had to use another program to convert the .webm videos into .mp4. I took some time to trim and trim the footage until it had the right pacing. Even thought the video was short, it took maybe 40 hours total to put together when you include all the searching and editing. Almost any modern video editing software will be able to produce something like this, you just need to be sure that you are precise with your settings, and careful with your editing. I hope this answers your question! Please let me know if you need any further clarification.VGrigas (WMF) (talk) 14:57, 5 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

#Edit2016 video[edit]

Hi VGrigas! Just wondering why the foundation didn't make a video for 2016? I loved the videos from 2014 and 2015! Cheers, Daylen (talk) 04:22, 11 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi! Well, it takes many weeks of very careful work to produce a video like that, and the second time around we didn't get the same response probably because it wasn't new and in 2016 for the third time around I had another project that was taking up my time. So I basically ran out of time to make it and because the response might also be low so we decided to just add a mini-edit2016 that was about 20 seconds into here:

[[2]]

This way, we can give have a theme like 'Facts Matter' and show footage we've accumulated during the course of 2016. It's very different, but the response to this has been good too. If you look in the metadata, it's also been forked into a few different languages. VGrigas (WMF) (talk) 14:42, 15 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:
  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Messaging 100Admins separately is not seen very gladly[edit]

If you need technical help ask at Commons:Help_desk.

The sound-logos should be sent to an E-Mail-adress and a new account for this Competition should upload all sound-logos or publish them externally. The Authors will be published after the competition.

 — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 18:09, 17 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That would be a possible technical solution. I agree that unsolicited mass-postings are a nuisance. Admins who are available can probably be reached through the Administrators' noticeboard, where also interested non-admins see the posting. I also don't know why admins are better suited to give their opinion than some other groups. If you expect a discussion, having that split over a hundred pages will be chaotic. And by a hundred postings you don't only annoy the admins, even I got my watchlist flooded. –LPfi (talk) 18:20, 17 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Victor, you've been around long enough to know that your action deserves a trout. This is not the right way to get input.
I answered on my talk, but so that others (and you) see it: Just ask participants to submit entries with a {{CC0}} license only. That way attribution is not mandatory and the logo can be used without having to link it every time (which is quite needed for a logo anyway). Multichill (talk) 19:30, 17 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The technical answer is that what you desire isn't possible within our existing license options - it's either no attribution required through the CC0 license (or a public domain declaration) as Multichill says, or otherwise it's attribution is compulsory (and unavoidable). The problem with hiding attribution but leaving the content available under a CC-BY type license is that people could acquire copies of the logo when it has the attribution hidden, and the logo is then used without appropriate attribution in perpetuity. The correct approach would be, I believe, as Johannes says, to have people submit their designs to an e-mail address. The submissions to the e-mail address would need to be held on a site away from Commons and only be available under an All Rights Reserved level of license for the duration of the contest. The images would then be released automatically after a set period (45 days, for example) under a CC-BY-SA or similar license. That's really the only way I can see that is fair for attribution purposes - admittedly going with a public domain release is easier, but we like giving attribution to our content creators, something we would want to continue with this new logo. Nick (talk) 10:11, 18 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I would contend that it is possible. If the participants fully own the copyright of the proposals,* they can grant an additional license to show it during the contest without attribution. There are other ways to organize it, but I would simply ask them to upload them to commons normally under a free license, then -assuming you have such grant- show them with random names (and random order per page load) on an 'external' site (e.g. on toolforge).
I would question however why you think it is so important to hide the attribution during this vote. We have been doing contests in Commons for nearly two decades, and on Wikipedia earlier as well, and I don't think that being able to click on the file to find the author were an issue.
(*) Do note this would restrict the contest by forbidding proposals that are derivative of files requiring attribution.
Platonides (talk) 01:07, 19 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
For Commons, you need a perpetual free licence, so if the licence does not demand attribution, or only attribution to other parties or to a random pseudonym, then that is allowed also later. I would say that having the licence in effect only after the competition, and hosting the files on a different server until then, is the cleanest solution. Anonymous competitions are a bit complicated to arrange, but I don't see why it wouldn't be possible in this case. The other server should avoid anything that can be seen as affecting privacy, such as third-party javascript, or any third-party content. Does WMF policy allow non-free content on a *.wikimedia.org server in a case like this, where the non-freeness is temporary? –LPfi (talk) 14:56, 20 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Good question, I don't know if WMF policy would allow non-free content on a server for a temporary period. I'm sorry for the mass-messaging, I didn't intend to break a rule. The trout hurts, as it should. I'm sorry. I appreciate all the feedback. VGrigas (WMF) (talk) 15:18, 22 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
