Wikipedia CD Selection
WikiProject icon Royal Geographical Society is included in the Wikipedia CD Selection, see Royal Geographical Society at Schools Wikipedia. Please maintain high quality standards; if you are an established editor your last version in the article history may be used so please don't leave the article with unresolved issues, and make an extra effort to include free images, because non-free images cannot be used on the DVDs.
 

True this isn't technically a geo stub, but I think listing it with the other geo stubs makes it more likely that someone with the knowledge to expand the stub will come across it. Bending the rules slightly though of course. . .comments? Coyote-37 6 July 2005 08:46 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Rgs-ibg logo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Rgs-ibg logo.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 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.

Current President[edit]

Is the president of Royal Geographical Society really Michael Palin, formerly of Monty Python? Perhaps the template at the bottom refers to a different one? Waygugin (talk) 22:56, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Wow, okay I stand corrected. He really is the president.Wow! Waygugin (talk) 23:18, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Scott of the Antarctic[edit]

Robert F. Scott may be often called "Scott of the Antartic". But is that so common and significant that it justifies to list him here with that nickname instead of his real name like all the other explorers? --Hansbaer (talk) 15:23, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Since there was no reaction, I have changed it. --Hansbaer (talk) 14:03, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
