I know the person who mainly updates her Wikipedia article and they told me that you can only include images on Wikipedia if they're not copyrighted.

I asked him, his reply: "All images on Wikipedia must be under a free license. Permission to use the file only on Wikipedia isn't enough, the photographer must grant the use of his/her work anywhere for any purpose as long as they are properly credited for their work. A perfect example of this licensing is here: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/ If the photographer agrees to release their work under that license, then it can be uploaded to Wikipedia."

Guys, I edit the Portuguese Wikipedia and anyone who's got contact with Kerli, please, tell her to create a Flickr account and upload the images she wants under this license "Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 Generic". It makes it possible to put any kind of free images on Wikipedia. It will improve a lot articles about Kerli.

I asked again, the response: "The current administrators on Wikipedia have achieved their adminship through long-time experience on Wikipedia and a vote by the community. Even if I had the ability to make people admins, I couldn't, unless they were nominated and the hundreds of voters in the community agreed.

Anyway, once again, the photos must be under a free license, you can not place copyrighted photos on Kerli's article, they will just be removed by me or another user, as they violate Wikipedia's guidelines. Please tell Kerli's management that I left them a message on Wikipedia.
"

He said this: "Make sure Kerli is in contact with the photographer(s) of the photos that are uploaded and make sure they have agreed to lose the copyright on their photos. It's extremely unlikely that a photographer will agree to do this, which is why it is never even bothered with."

Maybe she can ask Vespertine if he'd put one of his images under that Creative Commons license?

Please don't speak negatively about the editors, because to them it looks like you're uploading copyrighted images with no permission whatsoever from the photographer. My friend said you have to wait for them to confirm Brian's permission. Remember, Wikipedia is an encyclopedia and they have an extremely large and vast set of rules that must be adhered to, just like any other website. Just because the site is popular doesn't mean everyone is free to do whatever they'd like on it and just because the article is about you doesn't mean you have control over it.

And you do know the images featured on her article are a decision by editors, right? They could decide not use the images that you and Tyler have uploaded. I doubt they will, but they can if they want to. Everything on the article is on there because the editors have decided they want it on there.

The game is Wikipedia's, so you have to play by their rules. Wink

Thank you very much. *------*

About the article for The Lucky Ones, Wikipedia has notability rules for a theme having its own article. If the song chart or show any notorious content like reviews, notable performances etc., it may have an article for sure. Smile

I started writing on the Swedish Kerli-wikipedia article in 2010 but never finished it... Then they changed the editing 'tools' and I really don't understand how to edit anymore... Anyone who knows Swedish and Kerli can tell this article is disastrous...... At least someone (or an automatical function) has added Utopia to her discography.. I hope Swedish speaking people choose to read the English article x(
