Wikipedia:Files for deletion

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  (Redirected from Files for deletion)
Jump to: navigation, search

Files for deletion (FfD) is for listing images and other media files which are unneeded. Files that have been listed here for more than 7 days are eligible for deletion if either a consensus to do so has been reached or no objections to deletion have been raised. To quote the non-free content criteria, "it is the duty of users seeking to include or retain content to provide a valid rationale; those seeking to remove or delete it are not required to show that one cannot be created." For undeletion requests, first contact the administrator who deleted the file. If you are unable to resolve the issue with that administrator, the matter should be brought to deletion review.

If you have questions if something should be deleted, consider asking at Media Copyright Questions.

Examples of what you may request here


  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.
  • Orphan – The file is not used on any pages in Wikipedia.
  • Unencyclopedic – The file doesn't seem likely to be useful in any Wikimedia project.
  • Low quality – The file is of an extremely low resolution, distorted, or has other physical image quality concerns.
  • Copyright violation – The file might be used in violation of copyright.
  • NFCC violation – The file is used under a claim of fair use but does not meet the requirements.

What not to list here[edit]

  1. For speedy deletion candidates, do not use this page; instead use one of the speedy deletion templates. See the criteria for speedy deletion. These are: duplicates (where both files are on Wikipedia), thumbnails, broken files, non-existent files, non-commercial, "by permission" files and files which are not an image, sound file or video clip and have no encyclopedic use.
  2. Files that have no source, have an unknown copyright, are unused or replaceable non-free, or are non-free without rationale can be marked so that they will be deleted after a week, and should not be listed on this page. Add one of the following to the file page:
    1. {{subst:nsd}} if a file has no source indicated
    2. {{subst:nld}} if a file has a source but no licensing information
    3. {{subst:orfud}} if a file has a non-free copyright tag but isn't used in any articles
    4. {{subst:rfu}} if a file has a non-free copyright tag but could be replaced by a free file
    5. {{subst:dfu|reason}} if a file has a non-free copyright tag but the rationale isn't sufficient or is disputed
    6. {{subst:frn}} if a file has no non-free use rationale
    If the source or licensing information of an image marked as being freely licensed is disputed, please list the file on Possibly unfree files.
  3. Redundant or duplicate files do not have to be listed here. Please use
    1. {{isd|Full name of file excluding the "File:" prefix}} for speedy deletion if the other file is on Wikipedia, not on Commons
    2. {{now commons|File:NEW FILENAME}} if the file now exists on Commons, or {{now commons}} for files with the same name on Commons. (Don't nominate protected images, they are usually locally uploaded and protected since they are used in an interface message or in a highly used template, thus they are high-risk.)
  4. For blatant copyright infringements, use speedy deletion by tagging the file {{db-f9}}
  5. Suspected copyright violations shouldn't be listed here.
    1. If a file is listed as public domain or under a free license, but lacks verification of this (either by an OTRS ticket number or a notice on the source website), tag it as {{subst:npd}}.
    2. For other suspected copyright infringements or licensing issues, use Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files.
  6. Files that are hosted on Wikimedia Commons cannot be deleted via this process. Please use the Commons deletion page instead.
  7. Description pages with no local file, even though they are in the file namespace, should not be listed here.
    1. Redirects should be treated as in any other namespace: if no speedy deletion criteria apply, they should be listed at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion.
    2. Local description pages for files hosted on Commons are usually speedy-deletable under criterion F2; use {{db-nofile}}.
    3. Local description pages with no associated file are speedy-deletable under criterion G8; use {{db-imagepage}}.
    4. Any other deletion of a description page with no local file should be listed at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion.
  8. If a file is appropriately licensed and could be usable elsewhere, consider copying it to the Wikimedia Commons instead of listing it for deletion. Once copied to the Commons, it is eligible for speedy deletion per criterion 8 for files.
  9. If you are the uploader of the image, tag it with {{db-author}}.

Instructions for listing files for deletion

To list a file:

1
Edit the file page.

Add {{ffd|log=2014 August 30}} to the file page.

2
Create its FfD subsection.

Follow this edit link and list the file using {{subst:ffd2|File_name.ext|Uploader= |Reason= }} ~~~~

Leave the subject heading blank.

If the file has been replaced by another file, name the file that replaced it in your reason for deletion. Refer below for a list of other common reasons.

For listing additional files with the same reason, edit the first file section and use {{subst:ffd2a|File_name.ext|Uploader= }}

3
Give due notice.

Inform the uploader by adding a message to their talk page using {{subst:fdw|File_name.ext}}

  • Remember to replace "File_name.ext" with the name of the image or media
  • For multiple images by the same user, use {{subst:fdw-multi|First_file.ext|Second_file.ext|Third_file.ext}} ~~~~ (can handle up to 26)

If the image is in use, also consider adding {{ifdc|File_name.ext|log=2014 August 30}} to the caption(s), or adding a notice to the article talk pages. Consider also notifying relevant WikiProjects of the discussion.

State the reasons why the file should be deleted. Some common reasons are:

  • Obsolete - The file has been replaced by a better version. Indicate the new file name (often abbreviated OB)
  • Orphan - The file is not used on any pages in Wikipedia. (If the file is only available under "fair use", please use {{subst:orfud}} instead). Please consider moving "good" free licensed files to Commons rather than outright deleting them, other projects may find a use for them even if we have none; you can also apply {{Copy to Wikimedia Commons}} . (often abbreviated OR, not to be confused with original research which generally doesn't apply to images)
  • Unencyclopedic - The file doesn't seem likely to be useful in this encyclopedia (or for any Wikimedia project). Images used on userpages should generally not be nominated on this basis alone unless the user is violating the Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not policy by using Wikipedia to host excessive amounts unencyclopedic material (most commonly private photos). (often abbreviated UE)
  • Low quality - The image is of an extremely low resolution, distorted, or has other physical image quality concerns. (often abbreviated LQ)
  • Copyright violation - The file might be used in violation of copyright. (often abbreviated CV)

These are not the only "valid" reasons to delete a file. Any properly explained reason can be used. The above list comprises the most common and uncontroversial ones.

Since abbreviated deletion reasons will not be familiar to most Wikipedians, especially newbies, please consider using full words. A few extra keystrokes now can save paragraphs of explanation to a panicked uploader wondering what's wrong with their image.

If you remove a file from an article, list the article from which you removed it so there can be community review of whether the file should be deleted. This is necessary because file pages do not remember the articles on which the file were previously used.

Administrator instructions

Instructions for discussion participation[edit]

In responding to the deletion nomination, consider adding your post in the format
* '''View''' - Reasoning ... -- ~~~~
where "Delete", "Keep", "Comment", or something else may replace "View". In posting their reasoning, many editors use abbreviations and cite to the following:

Remember that polling is not a substitute for discussion. Wikipedia's primary method of determining consensus is through editing and discussion, not voting. Although editors occasionally use straw polls in an attempt to test for consensus, polls or surveys sometimes impede rather than assist discussion. They should be used with caution, and are no more binding than any other consensus decision.

Also remember that if you believe that an image is potentially useful for other projects and should be moved to Wikimedia Commons, in lieu of responding '''Move to Commons''', you can move it there yourself. See Wikipedia:Moving files to the Commons for instructions.

Instructions for closing discussions[edit]

Nominations should be processed for closing after being listed for 7 days following the steps here.

Old discussions[edit]

The following discussions are more than 7 days old and are pending processing by an administrator:

For older nominations, see the archives.

File:Common face of one euro coin.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Blue-Haired Lawyer (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

A file like this needs two copyright tags: a free one for the photograph and an unfree one for the coin. The photograph copyright tag is missing. Stefan2 (talk) 18:56, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

It's not a photograph, it's a scan. There's no copyright obtained in just scanning someone else's copyrighted work. — Blue-Haired Lawyer t 00:35, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
This looks like a typical photograph. All photographs of coins need permission from the photographer. You might have noticed that lots of photographs of euro coins were removed from various articles recently because the uploaders forgot to ensure that permission was available from the photographers. --Stefan2 (talk) 13:55, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
I think it would do this website some good to experience more pragmatism and less perfectionism about licenses. Nobody gets a copyright by scanning a copyrighted image, and fair use does not require securing permissions from the photographer. This is the encyclopedia that anyone can edit. Too much bureaucracy in the picture department, I have no doubt, encourages people to upload files with incorrect statements. If the site gets to that point, it ends up no better protected by its policies, while its articles become less informative because they are stripped of free and fair-use images.

    • You have to be the sculptor to include a picture of a destination in historic Filipinotown? The photo is promoting the district as a destination, not the sculpture itself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wapacman (talkcontribs) 08:51, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
      • The sculptor holds the copyright to the sculpture. You can't upload pictures of it without permission from the sculptor. --Stefan2 (talk) 14:08, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Example:
Detail of Mural, picture taken without mural artist's permission.

This is just the mural itself. Photo does not show any context to where the image was located. The Valor Monument photograph is promoting the district, not the art itself. I own the photo. There are no exact replica of this photograph. So if there's a picture of the Rizal monument, I have to be the sculptor to post that picture? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wapacman (talkcontribs) 08:58, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

See c:Commons:Deletion requests/File:Philip Vera Cruz and Larry Itliong.jpg. --Stefan2 (talk) 14:08, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
@Wapacman: To upload a picture of a non-free sculpture (in the United States) on Wikipedia as a free image, you would need to obtain the appropriate permissions from the copyright holder (usually the creator of the sculpture, but check because the copyright may have been assigned to someone else). RJaguar3 | u | t 00:00, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

@Stefan2, I did the mural I posted in the right, the mural in Filipinotown, yet that has been in Wikipedia for many years, yet no one has asked my permission. Can I sue Wikipedia then, because I did not grant permission, yet my mural was published for many years? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wapacman (talkcontribs) 06:35, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

No. Wikipedia is probably exempt from liability per 17 U.S.C. § 512. However, if you indeed did create the mural, you may be able to sue the uploader or anyone who has added the image to an article. If you can't identify those people, then it is your problem. If you indeed did create the mural, and wish the image to remain on Wikipedia, then please follow the procedure at WP:CONSENT. --Stefan2 (talk) 15:02, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Redundant extra cover. See WP:NFCC#3a and WP:NFCC#8. Also contains unsuitable private information (GPS coordinates in the EXIF). Stefan2 (talk) 21:53, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Reply: This album cover is for the Piano music LP which is an album in its own right (but also forms part of the 150 great classics release). The other Dacrop LP cover is used for the other 4 LPs. The guideline states that "Multiple items of non-free content are not used if one item can convey equivalent significant information." It does NOT say you can't use two covers. Here one cover does not, as the fifth album is a Piano compilation. Also, it is listed on Amazon and ebay, and other review websites as a separate album. I have replaced the photo with one with no GPS metadata.

File:GermanPoliceTormentingJew.JPG (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Crum375 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

This file is a WP:REDFLAG. Nobody knows for sure what this image shows. From one listed source to another the wp:captions are politically biased and factually dubious. For example: Wikipedia claims that this is "Rzeszow, Poland, German Policemen Tormenting a Jew". Not true. Bildarchiv Preußischer Kulturbesitz says it is not Rzeszow but Lodz. Different city, hundreds of miles away in Reichsgau Wartheland. Wikipedia claims the policemen are German. Not true. YV Photo Archive says that the black uniforms belong to Trawnikis (Ukrainian guards). And indeed, the black uniforms of the former Allgemeine-SS including their characteristic field caps were stripped of German insignia in World War II and given to Schutzmannschaft to use with the new patches. It means that the perpetrators can be from a number of auxilliary formations in Eastern Europe, these are historical facts. Rzeszow was not in Poland at the time, but in General Government. The name of the photographer is ommitted in all instances. This file can be so broadly misinterpreted that it has no place in Wikipedia. It is therefore Unencyclopedic.

"Not a very clear photo, but could be used for Commons if perhaps it can be confirmed that this is Lukachukai rather than Monument Valley - Uploader has in general not named his images very clearly, so it could well be that name is incorrect.

The article tells that this man was notable and that he died in 1962. If any Indian photos of him were published before 1941, those would be in the public domain and serve as perfect replacements of this one. The article doesn't provide a justification for all points in WP:NFCC#1, which states that non-free content can't be used if a free image is available or can be created. The FUR only tells that free images can't be created, but doesn't discuss whether such material is available or what the uploader has done to check whether such material is available. Stefan2 (talk) 14:18, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Comment - There are plenty of other photos etc of him but determining when they were created is tough, eg: this one, which claims copyright. However, I'm pretty sure that the one used here in the animation/slideshow will predate 1941 - he looks pretty young in it. - Sitush (talk) 14:35, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Fails WP:NFCC#8 as the image is not helping in increasing the understanding of the article and is purely kept as a decorative image. Furthermore, it is clearly replaceable by free image available from commons, or he infobox image alone suffices, being that both are visually similar. In that respect it also fails WP:NFCC#3a. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 10:24, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
