3D models on Wikimedia Commons
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This card tracks a proposal that's currently part of the Community Wishlist Survey: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/2015_Community_Wishlist_Survey

The Wishlist Survey voting phase lasts until Dec 14th. After the voting has concluded, the top proposals will form the backlog for the Community Tech team to investigate and address.

Proposal:

It would be nice if Wikimedia develops its infrastructures to be able to host free 3d works, just like what Github and even thepiratebay! did while ago. Image thumbnail of a 3D model can be used on content articles also, just like PDF files and video clips. Wikimedia foundation should keep itself relevant on new ways and new interests of FOSS communities. Fortunately it is currently filed as a bug, phab:T3790 but not progressed much.

@DannyH: It does, so why was this duplicate created?

I'd guess it was created because we wanted to track every proposal in the wishlist survey with its entire text and vote count on Phabricator consistently. We will likely merge-close this or the other one once we are done with our investigation phase of the survey tickets.

DannyH claimed this task.

Yeah, I was setting up all the wishlist survey proposals as separate cards so that we could have discussion on them without interrupting other people's work. :) But if it's bothersome, I'll close this and just put the other ticket on the Wishlist Survey board.
