2) There is definitely a trend of professional
photographers to request
credits under the image in articles. This is what they are accustomed to.
I (and a few others) think that we should make efforts to sensibilise our
users to this. We can definitely afford to credit people in articles. This
is a small concession which costs us very little and can benefit us greatly.
And why professional photographer should be better treated on
Wikimedia projects than me or any other contributor?
I find this is the kind of creepy open end question that' scares people away ;-)
I don't see in Rama's sentence anything that says "we should credit
professionals and not others". As a matter of fact, the rest of the
thread suggests that crediting the photographer altogether, whoever
they are, should be a rule. Except we can't promise it to anyone.
