File moving from en to commons

Hi! I am an Active Tamil user! I would like to use all files related with Wikiproject Scout in my wikipedia. So Please move all files to commons which are in Scouting category. Such as logos of Scout association and etc shold be moved. Hope you'll reply. Thank you.-- Shriheeran ( talk) 06:21, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, Shriheeran. Only files which are public domain or released under a licence such as CC-BY-SA may be hosted on Commons: Logos are nearly always copyright protected, and can only be hosted on individual Wikipedias, not commons. (I haven't checked those particular ones, but I would be surprised if itwere any different). What I suggest you do is look at the file descriptions in English Wikipedia, and you will probably find URLs showing where they were uploaded from - then you can upload them to tawiki (assuming tawiki's rules on Non-free content are satisfied). -- ColinFine ( talk) 08:59, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
