Nice, I did not know we can just use images from wikimedia commons directly. That makes it a lot easier, no need to upload all the flags of Russian republics. Was this function mentioned before somewhere? --Platschi 13:47, 7 November 2010 (CET)

Yeah, I set it up one year ago :) Feel free to advertise it to a wider audience. Maybe it should have a page, or be part of some kind of help page? (Do we have that even? :) guaka 14:11, 7 November 2010 (CET)
A very prominent note on Special:Upload would be the most logical place
One problem remains with flags, the country templates expect the file name to have a specific format, and many files from Wikimedia do not follow this format, which means we still need .PNG's, or the template needs changing, requiring the full file name of the flag. Neither solution is very appealing... Prino 14:34, 7 November 2010 (CET)
Nice. Maybe an announcement on the news could also do it? About the flags, well. I guess almost all nations got its country flag already uploaded on the hitchwiki server, so there's no need to change it everywhere. For specific regional flags, those should be added through wikimedia commons, of course. a simple country/region specific template might help out. fixed it now for the russian version (template: ru:Шаблон:Инфо-врезка_Страна) where we're at the very beginning of adding flags and stuff, works great (e.g. ru:Адыгея & ru:Башкортостан) with wikimedia commons. --Platschi 14:51, 7 November 2010 (CET)
