C&P from the Wikinews watercooler:

I officially propose that we institute an "Image:" upload capability into the Wikinews area and drop the use of Wiki Commons as our default image upload site and article image server since it will harm the depth of our news coverage. The use of Wiki Commons as our image source will hamper us since [[w:fair use]] images are not allowed there. It is my belief that news sometimes needs fair use graphics -- case in point: the "Wells Fargo and Barclay's rumoured to be in merger talks" article in which I inserted a Wells Fargo and Barclays logo - which visually helps the story. But since we use Wiki Commons for our image source, this graphic will most likely be deleted, leaving the story text-only. -- Davodd | Talk 10:13, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)
