Orphaned non-free media (Image:B52 crash perspective.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:B52 crash perspective.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot (talk) 01:33, 12 February 2008 (UTC)


Hey Boardhead. First, thanks for your amazing tool. Second, it's a policy here that things can't be copied word for word and I understand that now since I originally started the page. I plan on trying to submit the page again soon because it is a notable and important subject for many people's work flows. I've archived the original page here so that I can get it up to snuff before resubmitting. Obviously, if you have anything to add, please do so. Thanks. Roguegeek (talk) 17:55, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

I've resubmitted the ExifTool article with some minor rewording. I could use help for more rewording if you ever find the time and, although it's quite apparent to anyone who's used it, maybe some reasons as to why it is notable for Wikipedia with reliable sources to back up claims. Thanks. Roguegeek (talk) 05:50, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
The link should stick now. I've also added the article to Wikipedia:WikiProject Free Software so other editors can expand. Roguegeek (talk) 17:22, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:B52 crash overview.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:B52 crash overview.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. (ESkog)(Talk) 21:55, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Entropy (arrow of time)[edit]

Oops. Your previous edit made me think your {{cn}} was tied to the First law remark. Challenging unsourced statements is entirely ok, of course. Happy editing, Paradoctor (talk) 18:55, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
