Mass Image Deletion[edit]

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.
