Very cool. As a big fan of video games, kick starter, and commons this is a nice set of worlds colliding. Big props to Evan-Amos for the work he's already done.
I'd love to get notifications when new images are contributed by him. Currently I can go to Special:ListFiles to see what he's uploaded but that requires an action from me. Does anyone know if I can have echo notify me when a new upload by a particular users occurs? Effectively I'd like to a notification and/or stream of users I've followed on Commons so that I can then take those images and use them on articles. If not maybe it'll be a fun side project for me. --tomasz  - https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:ListFiles/Evan-Amos On Fri, Nov 1, 2013 at 3:34 PM, Nathan <nawr...@gmail.com> wrote: > A post is live on Gizmodo today about a Commons contributor (Evan-Amos) who > takes high quality photos of video game systems and hardware.
