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 Licensing

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 CommonsWiki

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 Commons

Hello.
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. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 20:13, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

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)
