Replaceable fair use File:Burnt_mary.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

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

  1. Go to the media 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 this non-free media 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 taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images 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 our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 09:54, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Re: Iginla's milestones[edit]

Hi Samsamcat, I wouldn't say you did anything wrong. I just made the minor change of removing the goaltender's name because I felt it improved the article stylistically. As a general rule, I try to avoid making similar statements in close succession, so "Iginla scored x goal against y goalie on z date" twice in a row felt awkward. That's why I made some small stylistic changes, including removing the goalies name. I personally think that for major milestones (1st goal, 500th, etc), the goalie is important. For his 30th of the year, less so. But that isn't a rule of any kind, just a preference.

One thing I would suggest for future editing is to include more complete references. It is great that you added a reference - Wikipedia is growing ever more insistent on them - but it helps to provide a greater level of detail. There is no single required format, though in cases like this article, it is best to follow the style already set down. Personally, I tend to use the {{cite web}} (/cite news/cite book/etc.) or {{citation}} family of templates when writing articles. But generally, and especially with online newspaper articles that are known to go offline at some point, you want to include the author's name, article link, article title, publication and date. This ensures that if (when) the online link goes dead, there remains enough information that another person could find the original source if desired.

With this all said, I am going to partially re-revert your change on the article to fix the citation formatting and restore the season link, but will leave the statement closer to your passage. Cheers! Resolute 13:49, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
