is Instagram compatible with Creative Commons?
Can I upload *my* Instagram pics on Commons (so could it be used for WLM)?
Please consider that I'm not suggesting Instagram pics are good for WLM
(they are filtered and all, probably not very suitable for illustrating
monuments on Wikipedia)
but is a legal matter.
I am happy to announce that today, almost fourteen months after its end,
Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 has reached a beautiful milestone in terms of
Quality images; there are now exactly two thousand (2,000) files in
[[Category:Quality images from Wiki Loves Monuments 2012]]!
The lucky milestone picture is a photograph of a house at 41 Mark St in
the Austrian municipality of Neufelden, Upper Austria, taken by Michael
Kranewitter who goes by the user name of [[User:Geiserich77]].
My congratulations to Michael and to everyone who has helped reach this
great milestone. Well done everyone!
