nav templates[edit]

Every other nav template for aircraft (other than, apparently, the Russian ones) doesn't list nicknames. Imagine if, for example, Template:X-planes had every nickname and manufacturer, like it once did; the thing would be longer than most of the articles it's included in. They take up a ton of space - for small templates like the Ilyushin one that might not be a problem, but the Tupolev one is 10 lines long (three lines wrap at 900px wide). For nav templates to be useful they need to be concise, and I don't think including NATO reporting names - which, I must point out, are not their actual nicknames - does the job properly. ericg 20:17, 4 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Category:US State Related Ships[edit]

SR-71[edit]

Hi, I know you are not a vandal I just didn't notice that you had reverted some of that bizarre vandalism to the page. The page had also been vandalised further since your edit, so no harm done, and no hard feelings hopefully! Regards,Mumby 22:19, 4 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Just asking[edit]

I don't understand why the < references > tag is being changed to {reflist}. Can you explain, and give me a link to how it works? Thanks. - BillCJ 17:56, 5 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

P-38[edit]

Give me a reason for the deletion- are you a vandal? There are "popular culture" references in many aircraft articles- these are well-researched and valid indications of the extent of popular interest in the P-38. To be considered "fancraft"= the submissions have to be "poorly written, unreferenced, unwikified, and non-neutral." Read the following: Fancruft is a term sometimes used in Wikipedia to imply that a selection of content is of importance only to a small population of enthusiastic fans of the subject in question. While "fancruft" is often a succinct and frank description of such accumulations, it also implies that the content is unimportant and the contributor's judgement of notability is lacking. Thus, use of this term may be regarded as pejorative, and when used in discussion about another editor's contributions, it can sometimes be regarded as uncivil and an assumption of bad faith. Bzuk 06:09 7 January (UTC).

In all fairness, the additions by Bzuk were not the usual cruft and he appears to have actually taken the time to research some of this material. I'm on the fence about the encyclopedic significance of contemporary war movies -- perhaps some input from WP:Air or MilHist might be helpful? I am a bit concerned that once the section appears, it will act as a magnet for crap but I would be willing to wait and see at this point. - Emt147 Burninate! 07:19, 7 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Taking it upon yourself to deletion the section versus posting a topic on the talk page (via; P-38 or Bzuk's page) is pretty low. I think this reference contributes to the article, showing that it is an icon and has been featured in movies. To say that you are afraid that the section will become a "magnet for crap" is an asinine excuse for deletion. --Signaleer 18:50, 7 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Contrary to what you may think or lack of, don't think you're above anyone else on here. Store that in your memory banks, thanks. --Signaleer 19:10, 7 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Cites[edit]

A cite in another article or at another website does no good to the article at hand. I tagged the statement and a reference was added, which is the whole purpose of the cite tags. No need to be so irritable about it (being irritable is my job). - Emt147 Burninate! 18:14, 7 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

GE CJ610[edit]

Why did you go around Wikipedia policies and delete the text of my article on the CJ610? Though it is a derivative of the J85, there are enough differences, and wide enough usage to justify its own article. Please at least seek some consensus first. Akradecki 01:52, 8 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

BTW...when merging the two articles, you didn't even bother bringing over the ref in the CJ610 which provided the info on the flight hours, and instead just put a cite needed tag...please read the material before doing that. Akradecki 01:56, 8 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Ref lists[edit]

Image:Fridtjof Nansen (F310) 650x446.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Fridtjof Nansen (F310) 650x446.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add ((Replaceable fair use disputed)), without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Input/opinion needed[edit]

Joseph, there's a guy who keeps tagging Learjet 35/36 as "reads like an ad". I disagree, I believe it's a straight-forward listing of facts. Would you mind reading the discussion on the article's talk page and weighing in? I don't really care what side you come down on, I just want an outside opinion. Thanks! Akradecki 18:25, 11 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I offered suggestions on the talk page already. It does read like an advertisement, because, instead of discussing the jet in the article in a way that is usable for a reader unfamiliar with the jet, it gives specs. A list of spess is appropriate if someone is considering buying the plane, but that is not an appropriate thing to put on Wikipedia. If it's simply a list of specs, make the article a list of facts about the plane, lists are part of Wikipedia. But, please, don't call what you yourself admit is simply a listing of facts an article--it's not. If I wrote a botany article simply by listing facts about a plant, my text would be slapped with a need for clean-up tag and all sorts of tags, or other editors with expertise in the area would appropriately edit the article to make it readable. I can't write the article, although I did give suggestions, as I have no familiarity or expertise with the plane outside of flying in them as a passenger. Since I'm saying it reads like an advertising brochure thats a lists the specs, and you admit it IS a "straight-forward listing of facts" we're not actually disagreeing about that. However, you are saying that this is appropriate for an article. I am saying it is not.
Here are some general guidelines that apply:

Thanks for the light tap on the shoulder. I get so sick of people who want to protect "Muslims" from us, but worry not a wit about protecting the rest of us from terrorists who happen to be muslim. For the record, my gripe is not with Muslims in general, but with those who do not speak out on behalf of what they claim is a peaceful religion being perverted by terrorists. Makes we wonder how peaceful their religion really is when they don't complain openly about its so-called perversion. - BillCJ 03:38, 12 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Hello. Please be courteous to other editors and use edit summaries when updating articles. The Mathbot tool shows your usage of edit summaries to be very low:

Edit summary usage for N328KF: 27% for major edits and 23% for minor edits. Based on the last 150 major and 150 minor edits in the article namespace.

Using edit summaries helps other editors quickly understand your edits, which is especially useful when you make changes to articles that are on others' watchlists. Thanks and happy editing! --Kralizec! (talk) 17:56, 12 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

C-21A conflict[edit]

Joseph, I see a conflict in the quantity of aircraft listed in the article vs in the specs section. I've no idea which version is right, but the one in the article came from the footnoted source. It would well be wrong, but I thought I'd just point this out. I've no idea where the info in the specs section came from. And, BTW, sorry for the stomp fest! Akradecki 18:15, 12 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

manufacturer name in infobox[edit]

Just to point out, after seeing the recent edit to Beechcraft Starship - there's already a field for manufacturer. Most aircraft have model numbers, and that's the general/preferred convention for the infobox. In many cases, the manufacturer bumps the title up to two or more lines and looks rather unprofessional. Keep that in mind please! ;) ericg 03:58, 14 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Smiths Aerospace[edit]

Hi. Regarding where the figures came from, it was from a Hoovers corporate report about the company. I think the discrepancy is the fact that the GE figures include the whole Smiths Aerospace group figures, while the Hoovers numbers are about Smiths Aerospace Limited, the UK business excluding the American business. Anyway, I think your figures are the more accurate ones for the article - as it clearly refers to the entire division UK/US/ROW. Mark83 19:12, 16 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Gulfstream[edit]

I just ran across a couple of Gulfstream aircraft articles today, the Grumman Gulfstream II and Gulfstream III) (which redircts to C-20 Gulfstream) in particular. Boy, what an absolute mess! It'll take a while to even make sense of what's there, and the fact that Gulfstream redesignated its new models won't make it any easier.

I'm going to post some ideas on the Talk:Gulfstream Aerospace page. I'm really not sure which direction to go on some things. Feel free to participate if you can. - BillCJ 18:54, 18 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Aircraft articles[edit]

Hi there. It wasn't my intention to start an edit war. I just wanted to improve the information about Pluna on Wikipedia and include the pics in the articles.

TOPGUN article[edit]

"butchering?" I invite you to go through the additions including pertinent images and removal of a movie patch AND read the wiki etiquette guidelines:

Principles of Wikipedia etiquette Assume good faith. Wikipedia has worked remarkably well so far based on a policy of nearly complete freedom to edit. People come here to collaborate and write good articles. Treat others as you would have them treat you - even if they are new. We were all new once... Be polite, please! Keep in mind that raw text is ambiguous and often seems ruder than the same words coming from a person standing in front of you. Irony isn't always obvious - text comes without facial expressions, vocal inflection or body language. Be careful of the words you choose - what you intended might not be what others perceive, and what you read might not be what the author intended.

Redirects[edit]

Have a look at Wikipedia:Redirect#Don't fix links to redirects that aren't broken. It is not necessary to change redirects to winglet to point to wingtip device. In fact, it is actually counterproductive, because if winglet were ever split off, all of these redirects would need to be changed back, and it would be more difficult to find them.

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Sprint Nextel Logo.svg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Sprint Nextel Logo.svg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use.

Orphaned fair use images are *not* allowed on Wikipedia, when my bot tagged this image it was orphaned. The bot did what it was designed to do and did not make a mistake. BJTalk 02:10, 29 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]
That is irrelevant, the image was not being used and it was fair use this is grounds for deletion. Human patrolers only spend a few seconds looking at an image, my bot spends a lot less and doesn't have a brain. Do you really expect anybody bot or human to find out the life story of an image before we tag it when we are working on a backlog in the tens of thousands? The bot properly tagged an image, you saw that and used the image in an article. Problem solved, I don't see how this is "Wanton botspam" or how it makes it an "idiot bot".

Need help with a UAV aricle[edit]

I could use help with an issue with a UAV article. There's a new article that's been created on a UAV, Dominator UAV. As I've been working on the UAV section for quite sometime, I tried moving this article to Aeronautics Dominator to conform it to Wikipedia:Naming conventions (aircraft), but the article's author, User:Headphonos insisted on moving it back (I get the impression that he's a newbie with attitude), asking for a "vote" before moving. We don't have "B-52 Bomber" or "Mustang Fighter" or "Globemaster Cargoplane", so why should a UAV article be an exception? When I asked the author, his response was "Don't care, the issue is the name, which is correct as per many articles under the +cat, pls don't contact me any further on the matter." Actually, when you look at the cat, most other UAV aricles conform to the standard naming convention (the exceptions being the ones we haven't upgraded yet), and I didn't see the need for a "vote" to comply with guidelines, but since that's what he wants, I'll go that route. So, rename to Aeronautics Defender, or leave alone? If you care to weigh in, pleas reply at Talk:Dominator UAV. Thanks! Akradecki 16:10, 4 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Aeronautics Defense Dominator[edit]

I agree with your moving Dominator UAV to Aeronautics Defense Dominator. You were originally reported to WP:AIV, which i removed because it was not vandalism. You were then reported to WP:ANI. I looked into it and agree with your moving of the article per WP:AIRCRAFT naming conventions. I have left a note with User:Headphonos regarding this.

I'm pretty sure the only information I removed was information pertaining to the YC-15, which was mis-placed and misleading. Specifically, the article talks about under-wing blowing, which the YC-14 didn't use. This is the portion that you re-added! As to the Coalier, simply type "Antonov An-72 YC-14" into google. Nothing of high quality, but for a "speculated" it's good enough IMHO. Maury 23:03, 9 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]

BAE Systems Wikiproject Aircraft rating.[edit]

Hi. I wondered if you could give a second (well third) opinion on this. I rated it as "Top" importance, Trevor MacInnis has said "I'm more inclined to sugest mid at most. The aviation related part of the company is BAE Systems Regional Aircraft, and this page is more of a corporate company article, only tangentially related to aviation."

I disagree about the only avitation related part of the company being BAE Regional Aircraft, this totally ignores the BAe/BAE participation in the Tornado. It totally ignores the fact that without BAe's design and Marconi Electronic Systems' avionics (both now BAE) the Typhoon would not be the aircraft it is today. Also F-35 paricipation and UAV research are important topics.

What do you think? I've left a request for an assesment which has so far yielded no response. Many thanks. Mark83 22:46, 10 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Can I butt in here? Trevor seems to have forgotten BAE Flight Systems, which has nothing to do with regional aircraft, but which builds the QF-4, and just finished the Lockheed CATBird. Akradecki 20:56, 12 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]
I just wondered if you were willing to give a second opinion. I can respect if you don't value the assesment. It's not something I'm that interested in, I'm just pursuing this because, as you know, I have taken an interest in improving that particular article. Best regards, Mark83 21:03, 12 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Image:Cfm565.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Cfm565.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add ((Replaceable fair use disputed)), without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Orphaned fair use image (Image:BoP Patch.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:BoP Patch.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

Fair use rationale for Image:East Dawning logo.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:East Dawning logo.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Unspecified source for Image:East Dawning logo.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:East Dawning logo.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the ((GFDL-self-no-disclaimers)) tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as ((non-free fair use in|article name)) or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 19:51, 17 May 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 19:51, 17 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Bad fair use of Image:AirNZ 789.jpg[edit]

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Image:AirNZ 789.jpg, by Russavia (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Image:AirNZ 789.jpg is an image with a clearly invalid fair use tag; or it is an image that fails some part of the non-free content criteria and the uploader has been given 48 hours' notification (for images uploaded after 2006-07-13) or seven days' notification (for images uploaded before that date). (CSD I7).

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Image:AirNZ 789.jpg, please affix the template ((hangon)) to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. --Android Mouse Bot 2 09:22, 6 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion.

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Tupolev Tu-444 1.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add ((di-replaceable fair use disputed)), without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy.

Unspecified source for Image:Boeing_737_AEW.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Boeing_737_AEW.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the ((GFDL-self)) tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as ((non-free fair use in|article name)) or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Thanks for uploading Image:Sukhoi RRJ.jpg.

  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

Another editor has added the "((prod))" template to the article Boeing Yellowstone Project, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the ((prod)) template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

An editor has nominated Boeing Yellowstone Project, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Boeing Yellowstone Project and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Virgin America logo.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Virgin America logo.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 02:27, 12 February 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Fair use rationale for Image:Boeing KC-767-1.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Boeing KC-767-1.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rossrs (talk) 12:40, 28 February 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Unspecified source for Image:MC2A.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:MC2A.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the ((GFDL-self)) tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as ((non-free fair use in|article name)) or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 15:28, 7 March 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MECUtalk 15:28, 7 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:MMA.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:MMA.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 12:55, 8 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Orphaned non-free image (Image:UTC 02L.jpg)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading Image:UTC 02L.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

Replaceable fair use Image:Boeing 747-400LCF 2.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use
Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Boeing 747-400LCF 2.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add ((di-replaceable fair use disputed)), without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? High on a tree (talk) 02:22, 18 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Fair use rationale for File:BoP Patch.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:BoP Patch.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:53, 19 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Orphaned non-free image File:LSE logo.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:LSE logo.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Replaceable fair use File:Boeing 747-8F Large.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Boeing 747-8F Large.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add ((di-replaceable fair use disputed)), without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Denniss (talk) 22:45, 13 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Speedy deletion nomination of File:America's Cup.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:America's Cup.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I2 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image page for a missing or corrupt image or an empty image description page for a Commons-hosted image.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding ((hang on)) to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Speedy deletion nomination of BBJ[edit]

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.

Thank you.

A tag has been placed on BBJ, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be unambiguous advertising that only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item G11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, . Clicking that button will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the article's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. You may freely add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Yunshui  08:08, 3 April 2012 (UTC)[reply]
