Just adding the "big write" category. --Larry Sanger 15:46, 23 February 2007 (CST)

We need a way to link to images via InterWiki so we don't have to store a copy of every Wikimedia Commons image in the CZ database. This article would benefit from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:WikiWiki.jpg, for example. <>< tbc 00:40, 26 February 2007 (CST)

There was talk of making such a extension, but apparently it's bogged down in testing in Egypt or something (I swear I'm being serious) -- ZachPruckowski (Talk) 11:28, 26 February 2007 (CST)

Anyway, we shouldn't link to images that don't exist, like this: [[Image:WikiWiki.jpg|thumb|Wiki Wiki sign at [[Honolulu International Airport]]]] Also, I'm not entirely sure it's a good long-term strategy to rely on Wikimedia Commons to host our images for us. This makes it much harder for people to make a full copy of the contents of CZ; it also puts us at the mercy of Wikimedia Commons servers, the inclusion of systematic copyright violations in which would make me quite nervous. --Larry Sanger 22:21, 4 March 2007 (CST)
