Stockholm running tour
I added a guided running tour in Stockholm recently to the "on foot" section which you then deleted with a comment ´no general tours´? I am just seeking clarification on why this is the case and how it needs to be written to meet the guidelines?
Hello IBAlex! I am not sure if I am using the User talk feature correctly, so please excuse me if this is not the correct location to post this..
Hello. I'd like to hear how one should deal with CC-by-SA 4.0 license, i assume it is rather new one.
I see it is added as an option in "Upload a picture" page, but only among "Attribution" and not among "Attribution-Share-Alike", which confuses me. I see that CC-by-SA 3.0 remains "default for WT", so this one is clear. Also, "Banner image guidelines" indicates that the source photo "must be compatible with CC-by-SA 3.0 policy" which is not extremely clear as i'm not an expert on licensing at all. So instead i'd ask other way: i assume, any picture from Flickr can be used for banner - any which comes out when you set "Commercial use & mods allowed" (other aspects like quality and aesthetics are not a question). Although most of older photos are licensed under CC-by-SA 2.0 and the new photos are licensed under CC-by-SA 4.0 (unless it is a public domain). So i assume it is enough to set "Commercial use & mods allowed" and this is sufficient and reliable. May i use pictures from Wikimedia Commons for banners? There is no setting "Commercial use & mods allowed". So may i use "public domain" pictures from Wikimedia Commons? Or should i not use pictures from Wikimedia Commons for banners? And - may i use regular pictures from Wikimedia Commons that are licensed under CC-by-SA 4.0 ?
And there is one type of pictures that i came across in Wikimedia Commons, would like to hear how should i behave if i think that the picture may be useful for WT and i already intend to upload it, and it is licensed under CC-by-SA 3.0 - but look at this picture, to me its licensing is really confusing. This is not the actual picture i intend to upload, just an example of licensing. --Local (talk) 07:03, 4 September 2015 (EDT)
Spam filter(s) and rotate picture(s)
Hi Alex, this is Shoestring of ja:. It's been a long time since we hear from you last, but how are you these days?
Today I have two questions, about spam filters and how to rotate the picture(s).
Currently we cannot make external links on ja: pages at all, because all the URLs are blocked by spam filter(s). Do you make some additional tuning to (it/them) recently? And if you upgrade those filter(s), could you tell us how to cope with (it/them)?
And next, I would like to know how to rotate the images. For example, look at this (shared:file:RonaldMcDonald Wai.JPG). This image was originally a portrait style. But recently I noticed that it was changed from portrait to landscape, probably due to your recent update of Mediawiki. Do you know how to recover it to its original position, i.e. to rotate this picture 90 degrees counter-clockwise?
