Welcome[edit source]

Welcome to our wiki, Bob. I hope that you like it and keep editing. So far, we have some pages about New York. Erin (talk) 23:50, 27 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks, @Erin. I don't know how to help. Bob (talk) 23:52, 27 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Photo[edit source]

This page has a bad picture. Can it get a better one? Bob (talk) 20:33, 2 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Have you taken a better picture? Alice (talk) 20:02, 2 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I found a great one on this news website. Bob (talk) 11:02, 3 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Unfortunately, that won't work. Images need to be "free" because of copyright law. Alice (talk) 12:02, 3 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It doesn't cost any money, so this should be okay. How do I get it in the article? Bob (talk) 11:23, 4 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
No, it's not about money. The photographer has to agree to a suitable copyright license. If you want, you can try to find and contact the photographer. You can ask the photographer to release the photo under a free license. Many people use the Wikimedia VRT release generator to figure out how to do this. Then the message needs to be emailed to the Volunteer Response Team volunteers with a link to the photo. Alice (talk) 14:34, 4 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
That really sounds like a lot of work. Bob (talk) 20:53, 5 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You know, you can't use that one from the news website, but what do you think about this one on Commons? Example (talk) 23:59, 5 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
That's better than this one. I'll put that in the article now. Thank you for finding that. Bob (talk) 13:17, 5 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You're welcome. Example (talk) 18:24, 6 March 2022 (UTC) Bob (talk) 23:56, 27 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
