In order to add any images, you have to determine a license and upload them. For things I have written or created myself, I can upload them with an "I did this myself" license. For anything else, its gets so complicated I have been afraid to try. I could create something with the basic handshapes and put it in. someone on the discussion page asked to see something with pictures of handshapes and their corresponding symbols. I saw something like that with all the Stokoe handshapes and their SW equivalent somewhere in the SW website, but because I didn't create it, I would need permission from the creator to put it up there; posting it there then makes it free for anyone to use. Do you know which picture I'm talking about? Did you make it, or know who did? I have it at work, not here, so I can't attach it. If we could figure out the license, that would be the best picture to use, I think. In the meantime, I will work on creating something with the basic handshapes.

Subject: [sw-l] Wiki article on SignWriting
This is wonderful. THANK YOU. The old article needed improvement...
And I really like what you have said....This is so much better than
I wonder...is there a way to actually show the handshapes in
SignWriting while you are discussing them?..For example, when you
mention the square for a fist, it could link to:
The term "pentagon shape" ....I have no clue what a pentagon looks
like....So the more visual you make it the better...or link to
diagrams on the web...
But what you have done is really good...Can you place a paragraph
about SignPuddle Software and link to it?
We actually need a separate Wikipedia article about SignPuddle
Software too...people need to know where to go to search for signs
already written, and how to create signs themselves on the web...
And I think your link to your SignWriting document is perfect!
Maybe a Wikipedia article about SignWriting Literature, linking to
all the documents written in SignWriting would be a good idea too...
Thank you once again, Cherie!
