Wikipedia and Notability[edit]

I personally have some reservations about the article:

  • The use of the word sub-culture. Are the numbers of users of the gardens sufficient enough to allow them to have a seperate listing?
  • Do the kids themselves describe the area as Cathedral Gardens? Is not the prefered word Urbis?
  • Is the article a Stub now and needs expanding?

In terms of notability, I strongly suggest that you remove the word sub-culture. 300 hundred kids hanging about a particular area does not entitle them to a listing as a sub-culture. I will not tag the article at the moment, but other editors will definately look at it and question its removal from the Urbis article to new article Manchester Cathedral Gardens Subculture.

Fair use rationale for Image:Ramsbottom_Tilted_Vase_010405.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Ramsbottom_Tilted_Vase_010405.jpg. 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 Wikipedia articles 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. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

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 you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ShakespeareFan00 11:04, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Derby_hall_early_70s.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Derby_hall_early_70s.jpg. I noticed the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

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

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Calliopejen1 16:17, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Manchester Cathedral Gardens Subculture[edit]

Hello,

I'm a little concerned that Manchester Cathedral Gardens Subculture may be a breach of some core policies and principles of Wikipedia, namely those on attributation, reliable sources, and original research.

The article makes some sweeping and exceptional claims, of which the three sources provided do not assert themselves. In this capacity, I'm inclined to have this article deleted, but if you can improve the article in the very-short term so it meets the standards outlined in the links above, I will of course reconsider this.
