Fair use rationale for Image:On Line System FJCC 1968.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:On Line System FJCC 1968.jpg 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 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 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.

Image copyright problem with Image:On Line System Videoconferencing FJCC 1968.jpg[edit]

The image Image:On Line System Videoconferencing FJCC 1968.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

It was a product[edit]

It was certainly meant to be a product, so do not understand the reverting. Not a sucessful one commercially, but was intended to be so by Tymshare in the mid-1970s. W Nowicki (talk) 03:14, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Unsourced "Z-code" claim?[edit]

This cumbersome system was first called the Z-Code System, because the commands all began with the letter Z, and later, the Off-Line System (OLS). When the funding finally materialized for a more advanced computer so multiple users could be on-line simultaneously, the acronym OLS was already taken, so Engelbart settled for NLS.

Have not been able to find any source that supports this. So I will change to paraphrase cited sources. W Nowicki (talk) 16:43, 20 April 2011 (UTC)
