Anyone within the community can reach out to them and ask. Agree this is a
good idea.

Following this up, from last August. Did anyone at WMF see it? I don't
think we had a response from anyone there.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Windows 10 lockscreen images

2017-08-23 Thread Richard Farmbrough
I have looked at the Wikipedia traffic for the places associated with some
of these images, and it is clear that they drive in the order of thousands
of hits per day.

I haven't been able to find a definitive list, from which more
comprehensive stats could be generated.

I think that using Commons images might provide an attribution problem.  It
might also take bread from the mouth of babes  (or at least photographers).
I think Microsoft can afford to pay for these images and fund creation of
more, even if that is mainly going to be commercial, it is not inimical to
free images.
