Wikimedia Commons

I’ve planned to start working at Wikipedia for quite some time, but I rarely found enough muse to contribute. I find the syntax of Wikis quite user-unfriendly, too.

Now, I’ve started to upload some photos at Wikimedia Commons instead. For those, who don’t know: „Wikimedia Commons (or simply Commons) is an online repository of free-use images, sound and other media files. It is a project of the Wikimedia Foundation.“ And you can find more information about it on Wikipedia. Nearly all of my photos I license under cc-by, which practically means, you can do whatever you like with them as long as you give credit.

I’m glad some photos already made their way into the Wikipedia, for example in articles about the Schachensee Lake. director Ulrich Bassenge or some parts of my home town.
