Hi,

Just FYI:

Yup. There is a DMCA Takedown request for Bernie Sanders Logos: https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/File:Bernie_Sanders_-_Wikimedia_Commons_DMCA_takedown_-_Redacted.pdf

A commons user filed a counter notice (thanks!): https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/File:Bernie_Sanders_logos_DMCA_counter_notice_Redacted.pdf

Best,

Help create a local Wikipedia 15 mark!

The 15th birthday of Wikipedia, and the Wikimedia movement, is less than one month away! The world will
celebrate with us on January 15, 2016, and we need your help making local Wikipedia 15 logos available for
more cultures, regions, and languages.

You see, instead of one single Wikipedia 15 birthday mark, we've worked with Wikimedians around the world
to create dozens. From the International Space Stations to Fondue (thanks Switzerland!), these simple
line drawings show the HUGE range of subjects you can learn about on Wikipedia.

If you are interested in helping with localised logo creation, you can find more information on Meta-Wiki: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_15/Translation#marks

Thank you in advance for your help!

-The Wikimedia Foundation Communications team

PS. We apologize for sending this only in English. Please help translate to your language: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_15/MassMessages/Help_with_logo_localisation

Potential Christmas gift for a Commons contributor who uses Pentax

Hi Commoners,

I have an excess "Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8 SP XR Di LD Aspherical (IF)" lens for Pentax. If you are a regular contributor to Wikimedia Commons, I might be willing to give this to you as your Christmas / New Year's present. Please email me off-list if you would like the lens, with:

1. Evidence that you already use a Pentax camera to contribute to Commons,
2. Evidence that you have a history of providing good-quality images, and
3. An explanation of how your contributions to Commons would improve if you receive this lens

Merry Christmas,

Pine

Clarify Project Scope about hosting illegal materials

I proposed to clarify Project scope to explicitly state the mostly obvious fact that all uploads need to comply with the US law. Please consider:

Seasons Greetings and a call to action

Hi all,
I cordially invite you to donate some time and add an image from Wikimedia Commons to Wikidata this year. For inspiration you may choose one of the recent Wiki Loves Monuments prize winning photos from your local competition being added to the Wikidata item about that monument, one of your favorite paintings from your local museum being added to the Wikidata item about that painting, an image of christmas cookies that you made that you could add to an item about that type of cookie, or anything else that has an item but no image yet. 

To help you overcome the difficulties with editing on Wikidata, here is a short film by User:Jan_Ainali_(WMSE) on how to add an image to an item:

Thanks, good luck and let's hope we see some structured data for Commons in 2016,
Jane

Image editor prototype

Hi, all!

I'm writing to share a prototype image editor that our very own Prateek 
(prtksxna) has been working on. We're hoping to write an extension 
around this and provide it on-wiki as a replacement for several bots and 
off-wiki tools. It's only an experiment, but honestly, our upload 
pipeline lacks an editing tool, which is *so* 2003. I'm looking towards 
getting this released on Commons, as a BetaFeature™, within the next few 
months.

Feedback can be shared at the extension talk page:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension_talk:ImageTweaks/UI
or on #wikimedia-multimedia or Freenode, or via private e-mail to myself 
or Prateek, if you prefer.

The code is here: https://github.com/prtksxna/ImageEditor

You can try a demo here: http://prtksxna.github.io/ImageEditor/

And finally, there's a sneak peek at the API documentation here:
http://prtksxna.github.io/ImageEditor/docs/index.html

Thanks for your eyeballs and time!
