2019 talk:Related activities

From Wikimania

Why is this page not linked at the program page?[edit source]

I guess this page was not linked in the mai page of the conference program, at least not a few days ago. (And it is not linked there now: https://wikimania.wikimedia.org/wiki/2019:Program ) Why so?

Now there is link only to Hackathon but no link to other activities. However, when one is concidering whether to take part into the pre conference days or not, one shoud know what is there, now there is only the link of the hackathons but not to this page. Luckily enough someone gave me this link. Thic link is crusial for anyone who is trying to decide whether to take part to pre conference or not.

Of course if one spends several hours to go trough all, this maybe could be found somehow. But some may be busy with othjer things.--Urjanhai (talk) 10:39, 7 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Urjanhai: Thanks for noticing! We are trying to provide with as good information as possible, but this is indeed lacking. Eric Luth (WMSE) (talk) 10:47, 7 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Is there any discussion of planning events for the 13th, too? Rhododendrites (talk) 14:57, 9 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Rhododendrites: We haven't planned anything specifically for 13 August, no. If a lot of attendees are requesting something, we could try to see what could be done perhaps. Eric Luth (WMSE) (talk) 15:51, 9 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Registering interest. We'll see if there are others, I guess. :) Rhododendrites (talk) 21:52, 9 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Oops. I must've been looking at the wrong month. I thought the 13th was Wednesday. No wonder there's little interest. :) Rhododendrites (talk) 15:46, 11 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]
No worries :) Eric Luth (WMSE) (talk) 16:29, 11 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Freedom of panorama[edit source]

As Gestumblindi brought up over on Commons, the freedom of panorama situation in Sweden seems at best unclear and at worst problematic for most Commons-related activity in the city. It would be useful to have a set of best practices available. Rhododendrites (talk) 04:22, 19 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]

The Swedish FoP section on Commons says "The ruling may be appealed no later than 27 July 2017" - I wonder: Was it appealed? Are there new developments? If that court ruling stands, it doesn't look good indeed. Gestumblindi (talk) 09:54, 19 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]
