I am reviewing and fixing those images with media/svg/image/etc. tags and I
found an offensive comment:

<http://www.openclipart.org/detail/83>I don´t know if I have the rights to
erase it (or even if I should erase it), so any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

One more question: are librarians allowed to add "sports2010" (or the
respective "monthly package tag") to a new image that should/could have
received that tag? Or is that an uploader decision only?

Best regards,
Leonardo Cunha

>  Hi all
> Here's an update on the list of easy job's I've identified that can be done
> as a Librarian, or as an editor of your own clipart. This list comes from
> various discussions on the mailling list and things I personally have
> noticed and want done to improve the site. It may be possible to do this in
> the database itself, but we can help out by doing it manually too. You can
> copy and paste these search queries into the address bar to get a good
> indication of the clipart that needs doing. It's not exact, but it's good

> list into a word processor, find and replace all commas with a commaspace,
> remove unecessary tags, then paste back into the cliparts' tag list.

> 2. *Remove tags such as media, public_domain, svg, image, png*
> This will clean up the tag list for better categorisations, clearer
> searches, less tag weight on things that aren't relevant to the clipart in
> question. These tags are leftovers from the old OCAL cchost system and are
> not necessary in this new OCAL system. You will be able to remove these

> http://www.openclipart.org/search/?query=public_domain
> http://www.openclipart.org/search/?query=svg
> http://www.openclipart.org/search/?query=image
> http://www.openclipart.org/search/?query=png
> 3. *Add a space after each comma to all tag lists that have this format
> "tag,tag,tag,tag"*. We want this "tag, tag, tag, tag"
> This will stop the tag lists of each clipart breaking the page. This format
> is leftover from the old OCAL cchost system and doesn't look very good on
> our new system.

> 4. *Add descriptions to cliparts that are missing it.*
> The search searches descriptions as well as other fields. To have a
> description will help people find the clipart.
> 5. *Request that people upload clipart separately*.
> Or do it yourself.
> 6. *Tag copyright infringeing clipart*. Then Notify the mailing list.
> More eyes = faster finding and dealing with infringement. All cliparts
> should be public domain.
> 7. *Let the mailing list know what you've hidden.*
> This is for better accountability and finding. We are doing the best we can
> but sometimes we make mistakes and others can pick up on that, so that we
> can get accurate info.
> 8. *Notify Mailing list of any cliparts that have a remix on them that
> need sorting out, or unlinking. Same with any cliparts that need linking up.
