No; those are only the new ones, specific to 0.972. The old ones are to be found in the LOCALE folder in your current installation.




They let me use this!

Just to let you know, I'm a member of Imgur and I thought I'd try to advertise Space Engine on it. And it's actually working, I made a gallery advertising it's features, posted it and... it's on its way to the front page I think (where all the viral stuff of the day is), the post is already at 500 points.

Here's the post http://imgur.com/gallery/q6HRA

Hope it'll get some people coming here to try it smile (a lot of the commenters already look interested, it's great !)

According to the stats, about one hundred thousand views (imgur is a crowded website).
I don't know how many of those views actually read the thing though, and how many clicked on the link to this website.

Reading the comments, seems like a lot of people didn't know about SE and are really damn impressed smile

Wow, the Spanish article has soooooo many problems...

1) SpaceEngine is not published under a GPL license. It is available as a free download, but the license is proprietary. It would be best to simply remove the license line in the infobox.
2) That is not SpaceEngine's official logo. The real logo should be used. This already exists on the English wiki, so it is easily accessible.
3) Appropriate license information is missing on ALL pictures on the page, this must be fixed. Keep in mind that SE does not allow for commercial use, and thus screenshots would not be "free use" images by Wikipedia's standards, so you'd have to give a non-free use rationale. See the logo image on the English article for example.
4) There are more screenshots than are necessary. If you want to show off multiple elements of the program that are very important, include as many as possible in one image, or make a collage. There really should be no more than two images on the page.

EDIT: The articles for all other languages share some of these problems, so they should be edited as well. (I'm going to try to fix some issues with the English article right now).

HarbingerDawn, I tried to change everything you said:
1-About the licence, I must have copied something wrong, but I fix it.
2-Now it's the same logo as in the english version.
4- Only 2 screenshots.

About '3', this is the first wiki article I've created, so I just tried to use logo imege example as you told me. However, and don't know anything about licences. Let me know if there is something wrong to fix it!

You gave the images public domain licenses. You must change this! They are NOT public domain. Getting the licenses correct on non-free images is somewhat annoying, so if you don't know how to do it, you should simply remove the licenses that you added and get someone else to do it. But they cannot remain as they are.

pzampella, the logo still needs to be removed from the Commons (it's a non-free image and thus should not be uploaded there). At the very least its license must be changed, to something like CC-BY-NC to make things as simple as possible.

EDIT: Looking at it, it seems that SolarLiner was the one who did that. He or somebody else needs to address that. SE images cannot be uploaded under CC0 licenses.
