Bestaanden opsturen, Insendingswegwyser?Bewarken
Hello! Sorry for writing in English. It was noted that on this wiki there is little community activity around uploads: less than 50 "Vordsmyten" actions in "Bestaand" last year.
- send users to commons:Special:UploadWizard from the sidebar and
- limit local "Bestand upladen" to the "beheyrders" group (for any emergency uploads),
so that no new work is needed on this wiki and all users can have a functioning, easy upload interface in their own language. All registered users can upload on Commons.
All this will be done around 2014-09-30.
- If you disagree with the proposal, just remove this wiki from the list.
- To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.
- In all cases, existing files will not be affected, but everyone is welcome to join m:File metadata cleanup drive. The goal is to give better credit to the authors who provided us their works.

GFDL is meant for software manuals and it is not good for media because it makes it difficult to re-use the material. Motivated by the the wish of making it easier to re-use files Wikimedia Foundation Board decided in 2009 to stop using GFDL as a sole license per this message. So I suggest that GFDL is removed as a suggested license. --MGA73 (overleg) 19:42, 14 apr 2021 (CEST)
- Adding missing word "manuals" above. I know only admins can upload so there will probably not be uploaded many files. But I still think it is a good idea to avoid bad licenses. Removing it will not affect existing files. --MGA73 (overleg) 17:39, 16 jun 2021 (CEST)
