Social sciences[edit]

I realise this is targetted at primary/secondary, but what do you think about a section for Social Science educational pictures? e.g., I'm thinking of images such as Image:Maslow's hierarchy of needs.png. -- Jtneill - Talk 07:15, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Also, I recommend Image:Structural-Iceberg.svg -- Jtneill - Talk - c 05:44, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm curious: why? (The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jade Knight (talkcontribs) 16:03, 4 October 2008)
Mainly because it illustrates some commonly-taught concepts in introductory psychology and it's clearly drawn in svg format. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 06:11, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
I see. You are a Psychology professor, if I recall, so if you think it's a good depiction of basic Psychology, I'll take your word for it. The Jade Knight (d'viser) 06:50, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Who?[edit]

Who takes care of all this? I mean, it's a great idea, but where did it come from? Who rotates the pictures? How are they chosen? The Jade Knight 06:01, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

It's all automated; User:McCormack pretty much created it, I gather. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 10:23, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

"20th century"[edit]

Why do you say "works of art created in the 20th century" -- what's the actual date of creation after which this becomes relevant? Isn't this also "created since 1923"? Sj 01:08, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Actually being factual about use, especially fair use[edit]

I left this comment on the The Great Wave off Kanagawa page that was featured as an "educational picture of they day." My concern is instruction creep of the worst sort: fascism.--JohnBessa66.pngBessatalk 13:54, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

The blurb says "For works of art created in the 20th century, normally you cannot reuse any copies." This statement wholly ignores fair use, as is hence a lie.
One can use a copy of a work to discuss the work; I believe that this statement is not so much misconception but part of an orchestrated attempt across the wm to strengthen property, as in intellectual property but also as in real estate, in opposition to the ideas of the public domain that go to social sharing, which is how humanity evolved.
The wm commons refuses to support fair use, and not for any legal reasons; this fact supports my above statement.

Chemistry: Absorption/spectroscopy[edit]

This may be of interest to the rotation boxes. Does wikuniversity have annotations enabled?
