Template talk:Manic Street Preachers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The template shouldn't have pictures of album covers. They are against the fair use guidelines of Wikipedia.

The guidelines list only identification and critical commentary as surely accepted uses of cover art. The other uses are legally unsafe. Tiny images can't be used for identification, and a template isn't critical commentary. The images in template also break against these specific guidelines: "The material must contribute significantly to the article (e.g. identify the subject of an article, or specifically illustrate relevant points or sections within the text) and must not serve a purely decorative purpose." "The material should only be used in the article namespace. They should never be used on templates (including stub templates and navigation boxes) or on user pages." -Hapsiainen 16:47, 14 November 2005 (UTC)
