Can I use images from Wiki Commons without having to upload them here?

  • At the moment -- this is not possible. However, there is a Mediawiki extension under development called the Instant Commons which aims to achieve this functionality of referencing and uploading images from the Mediawiki commons. So it's wait and see at this time. --Wayne Mackintosh 02:16, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
    • We'll be upgrading to the latest MW version pretty soon, and I understand that this will enable us to link directly to images on the Wikimedia commons directly from WE. Heard about this last Friday --Wayne Mackintosh 01:42, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
