I am promoting commons to the photographers I know and to those I follow in
Many use flickr to showcase their works. What are the tools available for
photographers to contribute to commons via flickr ?
How can we copy their images to commons automatically ?
I'm helping out with an upload of digitized manuscripts. We were discussing
the metadata that come with those, and there were some issues that weren't
covered by any of the existing useful templates (book or artwork). However,
I would still prefer to use an existing template instead of building
something from different fields. Does anyone have experience with uploading
manuscripts and associated metadata to Commons, and can point me to some
examples of how specific problems were solved?

We're excited to announce that we've rolled out several new features and
bug fixes for the Commons Android app over the past few months. Some of
the major ones include:
- A map of nearby places that need pictures (in addition to the existing
list). Selecting a nearby place allows users to see the associated Wikidata
item, get directions to the place, or view the associated Wikipedia article
- A new and improved UI, including a light and dark theme, a navigation
drawer, and a logout option
- Fixed memory issues preventing users with older phones from accessing the
- Licenses now include CC-BY 4.0 and CC-BY-SA 4.0, and licenses can be
selected individually when uploading a picture
- The total number of pictures that have been uploaded from an account are
now shown, and the image details pane now displays the upload date and

When the application is production ready, we can host it on a server.
Contributors can create account, login, spell words.
In backed, I will upload the audio files to commons with my account or
a bot account.

It's been a while since I last used the GWtoolset. I'm using the artwork
template but in making the mapping (step 2) the fields Title and
GWtoolset-title don't appear, whereas these fields are required. Am I
missing some change to the tool or is this a bug?
Thanks in advance for your replies!
