A pie for your effort today![edit]

A very beautiful Nectarine Pie.jpg You did a commendable job in cleaning/revising the American Idol Season 11 contestants' articles just this day. Have you considered removing "The Tireless Destroyer" on your User Page? It doesn't reflect your real contributions to Wikipedia. - SyncSeth (talk) 03:09, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the pie. A previous editor that did not like what I was doing on Wikipedia called me "The Tireless Destroyer", so I decided to laugh it off and put it on my user page as a badge of honor. Then the editor complained that I was using his term on my page, so it definitely made it worth it to put it on there. Aspects (talk) 17:36, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your efforts. It's very nice to see an editor trying to improve Wikipedia, when so many others seem to only delete and destroy. --Judgeking (talk) 07:34, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Pacific Liner[edit]

What was wrong with the new image that was placed in the article? Just very curious why it was challenged. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 15:43, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

The previous screenshot was deleted for WP:NFCC#8, which this image also fails. I have started a discussion at Talk:Pacific Liner#Screenshot in production section. Please continue any further discussion there. Aspects (talk) 06:44, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Removal of stills from film articles[edit]

Per this and similar edits you have been removing stills (they're not "screenshots"; that's what you call images from video games and software) from film articles on the grounds that they don't meet the fair-use criteria. You aren't specific, as I would imagine you'd need to be if removing fair-use images that otherwise have rationales and have been in the articles in question for a long time, and this apparently did not follow any discussion as to whether they should be removed or not, which again such a move usually should.

I wondered if perhaps (as so often happens) the criteria had been amended to make them narrower without the sort of projectwide discussion one would hope to have. It does not seem that they have been.

You appear to have based this move not on the numbered criteria but on, instead, WP:NFC, again without being more specific as to what aspect justifies the stills' immediate removal. I would direct your attention to WP:NFCI, informally known as the fair-use whitelist, which includes:"Video screenshots: For critical commentary and discussion of the work in question (i.e., films, television programs, and music videos)."

Unlike other entries in the whitelist there is no specific requirement that the stills be accompanied by sourced commentary discussing them. This has long been interpreted to allow the use of up to four such images in any article about a movie or TV show, primarily to depict the main cast members as they appear in the film (I suppose eventually video clips will supplant them, but that's not the subject of this discussion). That's how those images were used in The Reader. I am requesting that, with this understanding beneath your wing, you at least restore all the images you removed. If you want, we can discuss whether this is something we should still informally allow, formalize, or whatever the community thinks best in the appropriate forum before taking this to such a wide range of articles.
