Well, I have not found anything quite like it. As said, the
would be the GIMP Image Archive (http://gimp-savvy.com/PHOTO-ARCHIVE/
but that one has only specific sources (NASA, NOAA, USDA and
FWS). I would
like to give users the possibility to add images they found
long as they're PD or Copyleft). It also suffers the
disadvantage of not
having downloaded a context with the image, because of which
it is often
not clear to the volunteer describing the picture what is
actually on it.
A second similarity would be Google's image source, but there
choose to get only images that are PD or Copyleft, but has to
masses of copyrighted images to see whether there is one that one is
allowed to use.
But if a picture has nothing to do, how will you
choose to keep or
delete it ? Will we use the same system as wikipedia for
pages deletion ?
That's a policy decision that is to be taken, but should not influence
whether and how this is done otherwise. My own opinion would
be that 'unused
image' should not be a reason for deletion (on the other hand,
on Wikipedia might well be transwikied), but that one might
set up a system
to delete images that do not seem useful for Wikipedia or
similar projects -
Here I think in the first place of "yet another image of a..."-cases.
I see no pb to create a new one, but we'll have to create a new one for each language,
And idea would be to upload pictures, and having the possibility to write in diffferent
language about this picture.
Jimmy, what do you think about this new wiki like project ?
