Mass Image Deletion
By Thunderhead, July 3, 2007
This week, Wikinews administrators deleted several images as per discussion on the Admin Action Alert page. The images were deleted because they are from SXC, a free stock photography website. The license, however, requires permission to be received from the author. This was overlooked when uploading the image, and thus created a massive backlog for cross-project administrators to delete. Wikinews deleted their local copies of SXC images promptly when informed to do so.
