Flickr graylisting

yeah, you see the fallacy of the excluded middle. and preventative risk reduction, rather than curation. burden is on the editor to work around the snap, blanket decisions. they just want to label editors or flickr uploaders as bad guys - all the copyright vios come from people, not from bad decisions. and we have tools to manage people problems, with no appeal. what nuance is there, is ignored in practice. i guess the image curation will have to happen at flickr.

yes, a gray list makes sense. but i suspects the blacklist maintainers will never agree to lower their drawbridge. i would suggest a project page, with a list of links to the flickr images. i don't know if there are tools to automatically do this, but if it is only a thousand, then you could hand list them, and then hand upload circumventing upload wizard. (a creaky task flow is better than none). having a page with a task flow would be a start. cheers. Slowking4 (talk) 00:31, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
