Fair use rationale for Image:Jainism logo.png
Image:Jainism logo.png is being used on this article. 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 this Wikipedia article 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. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure 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 there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
The article stated that "Even the mounting ecological crisis is linked to adversarialism, because it arises from a false division between humanity and "the rest" of nature."
I removed this because it is questionable (and lacks a footnote). "[E]cological crisis" is ambiguous and has not been established to be caused by man. Furthermore, industry (human action) is consistent with Jainism's "mental states and intention" (q.v.) and isn't opposed to nature (e.g., Adam Smith's invisible hand promotes/incentivizes stewardship over--and thus conservation of--privately owned natural resources; though certain forms of environmental exploitation do deplete resources and/or cause pollution, such as "tragedies of the commons" via government-enforced public property and government policies which hinder tort legal action). Surely, Jainism doesn't categorically reject the use of natural resources, for how can mankind survive without it? Urgos (talk) 22:52, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
- This review is transcluded from Talk:Ahimsa in Jainism/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.
- Per MOS:ACCESS#Headings, "Do not make pseudo-headings using bold or semicolon markup. Screen readers and other machines can only use correctly formatted headings" (Ascetic Practices for adherence of Ahiṃsā, Laity Practices for adherence of Ahiṃsā).
- Per WP:DOCTCAPS, "ahiṃsā" should not be capitalized throughout the article (it's particularly overcapitalized in the lead).
- Throughout the article only the first word of a header is capitalized, and headers should not ordinarily begin with "The".
- The only issue above I see needing correction before the article is passed is the first (to accommodate those with screen readers). Looking ahead to FA, one external link (to Forgiveness in Jainism) is broken and I recommend a copyedit from the Guild of Copy Editors before submission. Miniapolis 15:24, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Cockroaches and bedbugs
What does a Jain householder do when their apartment or house is infested by cockroaches or bedbugs? What alternative is there to calling an exterminator to kill the insects? Keraunos (talk) 17:01, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
