We did a Wikipedia event in Sligo , and had 18 teams going around taking
pictures. Logistically, we thought we'd do the scavenger hunt first, which
we celebrated with a little exhibition at the VEC and prize giving. Now we
have to upload them with volunteers. We have an opportunity to work with a
group of students (aged 15-16) next week to upload the images and tag them.
We have about 400 images (I estimate, because we have 750, and there may
some that can't be uploaded or may be of similar content, same landmarks,
Important things to note:
- Each student will make their own account (I was told at the Drumbeat fest
that classes should not make accounts)
- The images were take by participants at the Wikipedia event, and those
individuals selected licenses and attribution requirements. They are not the
same team uploading, but it's part of the same project for Wikipedia 10.
- The students will learn uploading, categorizing (Category:Sligo or other
landmarks/areas) and geocoding.
When they select "Where is the work from?" What should they click, since
it's not their 'own' work?
I spoke with each team about attribution directly, even after we had
explained it. Each was given a choice of licenses, and who images would be
attributed to, if they chose that. They also signed paperwork releasing the
images as well. We have signed forms for each participant.
Did we create a situation of a Problematic Source? I didn't forsee this, and
regret not asking before. This was a last minute change to the plans that
the individuals would not be able to upload themselves.
Is it OK to upload directly to Wikimedia? Do we need to get permission
before this? Do they need a special category to mark them as part of Sligo
We didn't do the online tool expressedly for scavenger hunts:
3) Categorizing & Geocoding
Besides Category:Sligo, for example, if it's a mailbox, should they add this
as a category? Or just stick to Sligo? Is that done by other editors?
Thanks for your help!
I'm going to cross-post this with the Wikipedia Ten list.
