We need people to upload images to Wikimedia Commons.
- We face a problem in that photographers are willing to go out & shoot
and donate images. But they are unfamiliar with Commons and do not upload it
there. However, we find that they know Flickr and are willing to upload it
under a suitable Creative Commons license.
- There are hundreds of free images on the net, we can show you how to
locate them. These can be uploaded to Commons. We are at this point of time
interested in images pertaining to India only.
It is a job requiring patience, care for details and intelligence as the
images need to be categorised also. Where relevant we would like to add them
to articles too.
We need a small TEAM of three to five - people, age, sex, religion, etc,
etc, no bar, except that they should have:
* Knowledge of uploading images to Commons
* know how to categorise
* know how to load images into Wikipedia
* Possess good judgement.
* Possess an abiding love for Wikipedia and willing to contribute to it.
If you are interested, let us know. This is a serious commitment under the
"India Loves Wikipedia" initiative. Dont apply if just for "time
Helpers will be awarded barnstars at a suitable date after the project is
