As reported in http://it.wikinews.org/wiki/Wikinotizie:Bar/Upload_locale? ,
it.wikinews community requests local upload privileges. Local upload is already
on in en.wikinews, de.wikinews and pl.wikinews.
Please, could you update it.wikinews configuration?
Support! twice25, it:wiki
I agree. Commons is managed by people who knows nothing of copyright and act in
a dizzy and confused way.
Lately we had lot of problems with some german users that deleted all the
italian images that were PD for a specific comma of the italian copryight law,
just because with German law those images would have been copyrighted... totally
forgetting that as long as they are PD in the origin country, they are PD
Moreover on Commons it's not strange to have files deleted without delinking, or
without any advice; sometimes happens that a template image is deleted and we
have hundreds of broken links all at once.
Commons need a lawyer. And some damn good admins, not the bunch of incompetent
people (with due exceptions, of course, but not enough) that are deciding
important matters right now as you read.
(note: image used on news sites in italy have a special law, so while they could
not be license free for Commons, they could be legal for news sites. So a local
upload is NEEDED)
Completely support Tooby and it.wikinews request!
Support. Allowing local updates can increase the richness of it.wikinews content
(obviously within the compliance with Italian laws) by avoiding the current
restrictions of Commons. - it:User:Paginazero
I fully agree with Toooby 87 proposal
I agree with Tooby proposal
I agree with Tooby proposal (let's close useless commons)
If you support this proposal, please a) express your agreement in the on-wiki
discussion linked in the first post here, and/or b) vote for this bug. Please
don't post comments here just to express support; every comment gets sent to
everyone who voted for this bug and everyone who's watching the wikibugs-l
mailing list, plus it gets posted to the IRC chat, etc., etc. Uploads will be
enabled based on perceived on-wiki support, not based on how many people support
*here*. The system administrators generally handle all pending shell requests
in batches every week or two; just be patient.
I'm sorry for my post, I haven't noticed the last post.
Images used in Wikinews are strictly dependent on single nation situation. Best
managed with per contry basis.
actually, this is not a bug but a (missing) feature :-) I think that many (if
not most) pieces of news have local interest, so putting relevant images on
commons is overkill.
