Fair use rationale for Image:Imkt.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Imkt.gif 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 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. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

company's website is blacklisted[edit]

I ran into a WP:BLACKLIST problem for the company's website. For the moment, I commented out the url for a couple of refs:

  • <ref name="allabout">{{cite web| <!-- url= http://www.ingles-markets.com/all_about_ingles/ --> | title= All About Ingles| publisher=Ingles Markets| accessdate= 2011-03-11}}</ref>
  • <ref name="milkco">{{cite web| <!-- url= http://www.ingles-markets.com/all_about_ingles/milkco.php --> | title= All About Ingles: Milkco Inc. | publisher=Ingles Markets| accessdate= 2011-03-11}}</ref>

How dare I try to cite the company's website in a ref... I guess no good deed goes unpunished... :-) 67.100.127.97 (talk) 22:26, 11 March 2011 (UTC) P.S. See this talk page from meta:Spam blacklist for the request to fix this problem.

Thank you for efforts. I remember encountering this before. Just a note, this is the only time I tried to add an official site and got hit with their blacklist thing. From the history of this article, I made this edit in Dec 2009 [1]..trying to figure out why it is limited to just that page and now everything from that domain. --CutOffTies (talk) 22:32, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
Here's the reply to get it whitelisted back then. [2]. Again, I don't know why the whole domain wasn't whitelisted. I don't know how this whole black/whitelisting works. --CutOffTies (talk) 22:37, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm almost certain that the comment from EdBever (talk · contribs) at metatalk Spam_blacklist diagnosed the problematic regex entry, which is on en's blacklist and not meta's. The blacklisting was prompted by the November 2008 edits of 98.219.81.190; here is where Barek (talk · contribs) reported the linkspamming by 98.219.81.190. According to MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist/log, A. B. (talk · contribs) is the one who added "\bmarkets\.com\b" to MediaWiki:Spam-blacklist. 67.101.5.25 (talk) 03:27, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Suggested fix[edit]

Based on the history I assembled above, I suggest the ideal fix is to get someone, possibly A. B. (talk · contribs), to edit the current regex to limit its effects to only the domain that was originally being linkspamed, i.e..markets.com, otherwise ingles-markets.com and any other domain ending in markets.com is needlessly affected. I will draw A.B.'s attention to this talk page and then take it from there. 67.101.5.25 (talk) 03:27, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Ooops.
This definitely needs to be fixed and I'm sorry to make things difficult for others. Certainly an Ingles domain is legitimate.
I hate to do this but I'm going to pass the buck on helping you. I'm traveling and, more importantly, I'm not that sharp at tweaking regex code. I suggest you list this at MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist#Troubleshooting and problems. If you haven't gotten the problem fixed within a week, leave me another note on my talk page. (I'll be back then). --A. B. (talkcontribs) 16:56, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
PS, Thanks for your work on building this article. We need all the good content we can get.--A. B. (talkcontribs) 17:00, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── It took longer than anything I've ever attempted to do on WP, but after weeks of being listed at MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist#Troubleshooting and problems and trying twice to escalate the issue to the village pump, a solution was found by Peter E. James (talk · contribs), who pointed out that there was a similar problem with "way.com" that was documented at C. Thanks to follow-up by Lustiger seth (t · c · b · p · d · m · r), an admin specializing in whitelist/blacklist editing, the fix was applied as documented at MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist/log#May 2011. Thanks in particular goes to Amatulic (talk · contribs), who was one of the few to try to help early on. 67.101.6.37 (talk) 20:43, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Great work! --CutOffTies (talk) 22:40, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
