Two years of WikiProject Open Access
On January 10, WikiProject Open Access had its second anniversary. It now has over 60 members that oversee about 300 articles on the English Wikipedia and over 23,000 files on Wikimedia Commons.
An op-ed in the Signpost discussed how the openness of references cited on Wikipedia could be signaled to the reader and invited community feedback on the Signalling OA-ness project that works on a technical implementation for Wikimedia projects, which could look as follows.
The following represents a selection of the ca. 370 files that have been uploaded by the Open Access Media Importer this month, bringing the total to over 15,300. If you can think of wiki pages where these files could be useful, please put them in there or let us know.
Daniel, here's a totally random question. Maybe you know the answer, maybe not. Why is it that so few videos for published articles have audio? I can understand if the video is a computer simulation, but a lot of the videos above are of the "nature video" variety. Klortho (talk) 15:03, 13 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]
