Proposal 1 of Logo of Miraheze Commons.

Any logo proposals? That'd be nice. Hispano76 (talk) 03:22, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

it is good R C Peña
That logo looks good! I say let's use it, thanks! Paladox (talk) 20:00, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
I think it should also be used as a favicon, as it will make it easier to distinguish which wiki we are on (this is very important for a user like me, who contributes on multiple wikis).--開拓者 (talk) 00:52, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
Done Paladox (talk) 00:55, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks.--開拓者 (talk) 02:37, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
It actually makes sense. The wiki is renamed, and a new logo is created. That's good. For all. Fungster (talk) 11:06, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Paladox Hispano76 (talk) 15:16, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

File LicensingEdit

Morning, everybody. I come to clarify which licenses are accepted in this Wiki. This is so that new users know beforehand if they have the right license and also to make some arrangements.

  • Are all Creative Commons licenses (CC0 to CC BY NC ND) accepted?
  • Is the Fair Use accepted?

Greetings Hispano76 (talk) 15:15, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

Yes, might want to follow https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Licensing too. Paladox (talk) 15:29, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
Paladox Well, then all variants of Creative Commons licenses including "NoDerivative" will be accepted. Greetings. Hispano76 (talk) 15:41, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

Consultation on probable "merger" between MediatecaWiki and CommonsWikiEdit

Hello, everybody. For some time now, I have been thinking about bringing all my images that are in my Mediateca wiki project to this Wiki for at least two reasons:

  • 1) To be able to use it in any Miraheze wiki including possible future projects of my own without having to be configured in GitHub
  • 2) To prevent the deletion of these images in case of inactivity (Not taken into account the issue of copyright although I try to prevent plagiarism)

I just have some doubts that I would like to ask before doing any Import step. The doubts are:

  • 3) Can I create categories "in Spanish" to categorize my images? for example categorize "File:Manuel Camacho Solis.jpg" in the categories "Personas", "Imágenes de Flickr " and "Imágenes bajo la licencia CC BY NC" or should they be in English?
  • 4) My license attribution and related templates Can they be in Spanish or do I have to translate them into English? for example Template:Flickr
  • 5) Am I free to create categories I want or should I stick to a categorization line here? Can I overcategorize my images?

(Consultation in spanish)

  • 6) Can I also categorize images that are hosted on Wikimedia Commons? for example File:Falta imagen logo.svg image is missing. This to have "quick" access to these images and listings so I won't forget them. --Hispano76 (talk) 02:33, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

Custom licensing to prevent transfer to CommonsEdit

May I upload files deliberately licensed in a way preventing transfer to Wikimedia Commons on a technicality? In other words, essentially free but under such exact conditions that make hosting on Wikimedia Commons not possible with their current licensing system.

Wikimedia Commons does not accept CC BY NC, CC BY NC SA, CC BY ND and CC BY NC ND licenses because they are Non-Commercial and Non-Derived. You could opt for these licenses. Greetings. Hispano76 (talk) 22:08, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
Good to know! ZBlace (talk) 23:15, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
