Can we use pics off Wikipedia? Not link to - copy and use. hackademic

I don't see why not, so long as those pictures are licensed under CC-SA. All the pictures on commons should have that license or a similar or more liberal one (I license all mine as public domain). When importing pictures under other licenses, we should duplicate that license here, and for all such pictures, we should credit the commons page and author on the image page.
There are pictures on English Wikipedia however which are under a claim of fair use, and we shouldn't import those.
Wikipedia can also use any picture (or text) from here, although I'm not aware that it's ever done so to date.-Gadfium 21:36, 22 June 2009 (NZST)

Thanks for that Gadfium. Much appreciated. hackademic

Hey dude, nice linking.hackademic

Do you know if there's still a prob with loading pics on Waihekepedia? Got one of Simon but won't go up. hackademic

Didn't think there was but also haven't tried since new server, etc. Will have a poke around. Countrymike 20:09, 13 May 2009 (NZST)
Just had a look at the logs and the last picture was uploaded 19th of March. Not sure when the server switch happened. I'll try uploading a pic to my user page as a test. Countrymike 20:11, 13 May 2009 (NZST)
