Peter,

You are right.and truly we are spoiled for choice

It is very satisfying to observe that some entries from professional
photographers are nowadays explicitly stating their CC-BY-SA licences fo
rCommons do not enable their copyrighted works to be uploaded to Facebook
(and by implication to similar sites).

eg: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Cccefalon/fb

And yet, I see that the Wikimedia volunteers on Facebook blissfully
uploading "Pictures of the day" ignorant of all the legalese

eg:

In reply to this post by Pine W
Actually those uploading images on the Wikimedia Commons FB page are
volunteers
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Social_media/Facebook> (I don't
think they're all listed there but probably the right place to start), I'd
encourage you to talk to them directly if you think there is a problem with
their uploads instead of jumping to conclusions and assuming it must be the
"evil WMF" doing it and using a great thread like this to try and score
some points against them.

For those interested:

I know that the verified channels which the Communication team posts on
frequently (Especially the Wikimedia <https://twitter.com/wikipedia> &
Wikipedia <https://twitter.com/wikipedia> twitter and the Wikipedia FB page
<https://www.facebook.com/wikipedia>) purposely follow a set of Best
Practices
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Social_media/Best_practices#On_Wikimedia_Foundation_and_Wikipedia_branded_accounts>
that include very explictly "Do not post media that is not either owned or
co-owned by the Wikimedia Foundation (such as photos we take), in the
public domain or licensed under CC0". They do occasionally post other CC
images but only after getting explicit approval/permission from the
copyright holder including how to attribute etc.

On a personal basis I think the inability to post most CC images on SM
sites is a massive problem for the licenses as a whole (and for many free
licenses). This is not only because SM sites are such a large part of
modern life right now (and so we are cutting off an important audience who
we WANT using free images rather then repeatedly using more closed
copyrighted material, though they are still doing that now ALSO against the
SM Terms of Use) but it's also because it's so befuddling to people that
they generally ignore it encouraging people to ignore the licenses in
general. Not only the general public but those who know the licences well
think of them as designed to ALLOW sharing so the idea that they can't
share them is shocking to them (so they DO share them). In fact, contrary
to your accusation, I don't know of ANY other organizations that ensure
they are following the SM site Terms of Use and the CC licenses when
posting. I've even seen Creative Commons itself, on it's official Twitter
and Facebook accounts, posting CC images against the terms.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Commons Picture of the Year 2015 round 2 voting has started

Toby Dollmann
Dear James,

A few quick points

1.  I had clearly  ascribed the uploading of these images to
"volunteers" and not to the "evil WMF".

" .. I see that the Wikimedia volunteers on Facebook blissfully uploading ..."

2.  The first image I linked to explicitly prohibits (in his CC-BY-4
permissions any uploading to FB).

 .. ''It is not allowed to upload this file to Facebook''

3. My talking to other volunteers directly triggers automatic problems
for the reason that Wikimedia community written policies are usually
diametrically opposite to real world best practices. "Assume good
faith" is a licence to abuse, and our very presence on-wiki leads to
misunderstanding of legal threats being issued.

4. Additionally, legal professionals operating within EU are subject
to stringent data privacy practices to maintain integrity of their
electronic communications. This leads to immediate "checkuser" blocks
if / when we post to Wikipedia, since our messages contain visible
identification strings. For instance my corporate account was blocked
on English Wiki yesterday within 4 minutes of notice to me being
issued, ignoring the community policy called "CBAN" which requires a
minimum of 24 hours. My request for clarification from the blocking
administrator is unanswered.  So I question your advising that I
directly interact with volunteers (unless they have WMF issued counsel
advising them).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Toby_at_Cyberlawpractice

5. By when can we expect your OTRS confirmation that the copyright for
WMF images uploaded to Commons by "G(ayle) Young (WMF)" were actually
owned or co-owned by WMF as you averred ? It is curious that these WMF
images were deleted on Commons, but are freely available elsewhere on
responsible Social Media under WMF's licence.

In reply to this post by James Alexander-3
As far i can see there are two volunteers listed at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Social_media/Facebook  , i talked with Yann - it wasn't him.

The second volunteer is Rodrigo.Argenton, and i am wondering who granted him access - looking at his block log i don't feel comfortable at all [1].

Opinion: A page on meta schould be created and who operates which account.

Umm, didnt we have a larger team of volunteers who managed the Commons
page?  IIRC, WMF removed them all, and I assume the WMF now determines
who has access to the account.

Also blocked indefinitely on br.wikimedia.org by Teles with a curious
block message (sincronizando com bloqueio em conta principal).

https://br.wikimedia.org/wiki/Especial:Contribui%C3%A7%C3%B5es/Rodrigo.Argenton

Hopefully that can be cleared up.

Yann & Rodrigo should be able to say who posted these, as all managers
can see which manager authored each post on the page.

https://www.facebook.com/Wikimedia.Commons/posts/1120943991261222:0

Obviously the media licensing needs to be followed carefully by
whoever is a Facebook manager.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Commons Picture of the Year 2015 round 2 voting has started

Alessandro Marchetti
In reply to this post by Steinsplitter Wiki
I agree about the meta discussion, but maybe not just about this account. It is an issue for all platform-related web accounts, in the end. If there is nothing else that page would be kinda of a "precedent" of the issue at meta level. I have been trying to learn more about it actually, but I faced on wiki platforms a very fragmented scenario.
The reason I am looking around is because I've tried to discuss some similar aspects in the mailing list of WM Italy last week. I was talking about existing and potential facebook groups regarding local areas (such as "region X on wikipedia"), which are useful to attract new editors, contacts (local associations, aldermen...) or contents.
Now, it seems to me that some aspects apply to the general case of social accounts "related" to main WMF platforms. Just an example: I pointed out for example how the presence amongst the volunteers or managers of users with advanced flag (e.g. OTRS permission in my example) would be useful in some circumstances.
We should really promote a request for comments on the issue. It would be very interesting and help to share valuable expertise.

The second volunteer is Rodrigo.Argenton, and i am wondering who granted him access - looking at his block log i don't feel comfortable at all [1].

Opinion: A page on meta schould be created and who operates which account.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Commons-l] Commons Picture of the Year 2015 round 2 voting has started

Steinsplitter Wiki-2
In reply to this post by Pine W
Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2015 is open! Dear Wikimedians,


Pine sent a short notification to both lists (commons-I and wikimedia-I) regarding POTY round two at 15 May 2016, now a few details:



We are happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition
 is now open. This year will be the ninth edition of the annual
Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional
contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons.


Wikimedia users are invited
 to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last
year (2015) to produce a single Picture of the Year.



Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the
international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered
in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant
shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical
images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive
 human portraits, and so much more.



There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted
for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate
images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30
overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category.



In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.
