Wikipedia:Files for deletion

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Files for deletion (FfD) is for listing images and other media files which are unneeded. Files that have been listed here for more than 7 days are eligible for deletion if either a consensus to do so has been reached or no objections to deletion have been raised. To quote the non-free content criteria, "it is the duty of users seeking to include or retain content to provide a valid rationale; those seeking to remove or delete it are not required to show that one cannot be created." For undeletion requests, first contact the administrator who deleted the file. If you are unable to resolve the issue with that administrator, the matter should be brought to deletion review.

If you have questions if something should be deleted, consider asking at Media Copyright Questions.

Examples of what you may request here


  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.
  • Orphan – The file is not used on any pages in Wikipedia.
  • Unencyclopedic – The file doesn't seem likely to be useful in any Wikimedia project.
  • Low quality – The file is of an extremely low resolution, distorted, or has other physical image quality concerns.
  • Copyright violation – The file might be used in violation of copyright.
  • NFCC violation – The file is used under a claim of fair use but does not meet the requirements.

What not to list here[edit]

  1. For speedy deletion candidates, do not use this page; instead use one of the speedy deletion templates. See the criteria for speedy deletion. These are: duplicates (where both files are on Wikipedia), thumbnails, broken files, non-existent files, non-commercial, "by permission" files and files which are not an image, sound file or video clip and have no encyclopedic use.
  2. Files that have no source, have an unknown copyright, are unused or replaceable non-free, or are non-free without rationale can be marked so that they will be deleted after a week, and should not be listed on this page. Add one of the following to the file page:
    1. {{subst:nsd}} if a file has no source indicated
    2. {{subst:nld}} if a file has a source but no licensing information
    3. {{subst:orfud}} if a file has a non-free copyright tag but isn't used in any articles
    4. {{subst:rfu}} if a file has a non-free copyright tag but could be replaced by a free file
    5. {{subst:dfu|reason}} if a file has a non-free copyright tag but the rationale isn't sufficient or is disputed
    6. {{subst:frn}} if a file has no non-free use rationale
    If the source or licensing information of an image marked as being freely licensed is disputed, please list the file on Possibly unfree files.
  3. Redundant or duplicate files do not have to be listed here. Please use
    1. {{isd|Full name of file excluding the "File:" prefix}} for speedy deletion if the other file is on Wikipedia, not on Commons
    2. {{now commons|File:NEW FILENAME}} if the file now exists on Commons, or {{now commons}} for files with the same name on Commons. (Don't nominate protected images, they are usually locally uploaded and protected since they are used in an interface message or in a highly used template, thus they are high-risk.)
  4. For blatant copyright infringements, use speedy deletion by tagging the file {{db-f9}}
  5. Suspected copyright violations shouldn't be listed here.
    1. If a file is listed as public domain or under a free license, but lacks verification of this (either by an OTRS ticket number or a notice on the source website), tag it as {{subst:npd}}.
    2. For other suspected copyright infringements or licensing issues, use Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files.
  6. Files that are hosted on Wikimedia Commons cannot be deleted via this process. Please use the Commons deletion page instead.
  7. Description pages with no local file, even though they are in the file namespace, should not be listed here.
    1. Redirects should be treated as in any other namespace: if no speedy deletion criteria apply, they should be listed at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion.
    2. Local description pages for files hosted on Commons are usually speedy-deletable under criterion F2; use {{db-nofile}}.
    3. Local description pages with no associated file are speedy-deletable under criterion G8; use {{db-imagepage}}.
    4. Any other deletion of a description page with no local file should be listed at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion.
  8. If a file is appropriately licensed and could be usable elsewhere, consider copying it to the Wikimedia Commons instead of listing it for deletion. Once copied to the Commons, it is eligible for speedy deletion per criterion 8 for files.
  9. If you are the uploader of the image, tag it with {{db-author}}.

Instructions for listing files for deletion

To list a file:

1
Edit the file page.

Add {{ffd|log=2015 March 1}} to the file page.

2
Create its FfD subsection.

Follow this edit link and list the file using {{subst:ffd2|File_name.ext|Uploader= |Reason= }} ~~~~

Leave the subject heading blank.

If the file has been replaced by another file, name the file that replaced it in your reason for deletion. Refer below for a list of other common reasons.

For listing additional files with the same reason, edit the first file section and use {{subst:ffd2a|File_name.ext|Uploader= }}

3
Give due notice.

Inform the uploader by adding a message to their talk page using {{subst:fdw|File_name.ext}}

  • Remember to replace "File_name.ext" with the name of the image or media
  • For multiple images by the same user, use {{subst:fdw-multi|First_file.ext|Second_file.ext|Third_file.ext}} ~~~~ (can handle up to 26)

If the image is in use, also consider adding {{ifdc|File_name.ext|log=2015 March 1}} to the caption(s), or adding a notice to the article talk pages. Consider also notifying relevant WikiProjects of the discussion.

State the reasons why the file should be deleted. Some common reasons are:

  • Obsolete - The file has been replaced by a better version. Indicate the new file name (often abbreviated OB)
  • Orphan - The file is not used on any pages in Wikipedia. (If the file is only available under "fair use", please use {{subst:orfud}} instead). Please consider moving "good" free licensed files to Commons rather than outright deleting them, other projects may find a use for them even if we have none; you can also apply {{Copy to Wikimedia Commons}} . (often abbreviated OR, not to be confused with original research which generally doesn't apply to images)
  • Unencyclopedic - The file doesn't seem likely to be useful in this encyclopedia (or for any Wikimedia project). Images used on userpages should generally not be nominated on this basis alone unless the user is violating the Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not policy by using Wikipedia to host excessive amounts unencyclopedic material (most commonly private photos). (often abbreviated UE)
  • Low quality - The image is of an extremely low resolution, distorted, or has other physical image quality concerns. (often abbreviated LQ)
  • Copyright violation - The file might be used in violation of copyright. (often abbreviated CV)

These are not the only "valid" reasons to delete a file. Any properly explained reason can be used. The above list comprises the most common and uncontroversial ones.

Since abbreviated deletion reasons will not be familiar to most Wikipedians, especially newbies, please consider using full words. A few extra keystrokes now can save paragraphs of explanation to a panicked uploader wondering what's wrong with their image.

If you remove a file from an article, list the article from which you removed it so there can be community review of whether the file should be deleted. This is necessary because file pages do not remember the articles on which the file were previously used.

Administrator instructions

Instructions for discussion participation[edit]

In responding to the deletion nomination, consider adding your post in the format
* '''View''' - Reasoning ... -- ~~~~
where "Delete", "Keep", "Comment", or something else may replace "View". In posting their reasoning, many editors use abbreviations and cite to the following:

Remember that polling is not a substitute for discussion. Wikipedia's primary method of determining consensus is through editing and discussion, not voting. Although editors occasionally use straw polls in an attempt to test for consensus, polls or surveys sometimes impede rather than assist discussion. They should be used with caution, and are no more binding than any other consensus decision.

Also remember that if you believe that an image is potentially useful for other projects and should be moved to Wikimedia Commons, in lieu of responding '''Move to Commons''', you can move it there yourself. See Wikipedia:Moving files to the Commons for instructions.

Instructions for closing discussions[edit]

Nominations should be processed for closing after being listed for 7 days following the steps here.

Old discussions[edit]

The following discussions are more than 7 days old and are pending processing by an administrator:

For older nominations, see the archives.

If it doesn't fit on the page, that is no issue. I can move the file to Commons regardless of whether it is used. Could you give as much information on the image page as you can? It makes it more useful. Thanks in advance. Deadstar (talk) 16:02, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

very poor resolution crop of File:Eugène Delacroix - La liberté guidant le peuple.jpg, unused, no need to keep. Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:29, 23 February 2015 (UTC) I concur. I uploaded the image because I wanted to have it for my profile picture. I created a page as a test of the Wikipedia copyright rules. There is already a better copy on the La liberté guidant le peuple wiki page. I'm still trying to find out whether I can use the extant image at the La liberté guidant le peuple wiki page for my talk page Lavomengro. If there are any objections, and I don't see any here as yet, I'll delete the page myself. It's actually redundant. Lavomengro (talk) 21:49, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned. Would consider moving it to Commons as a possibly useful somewhere image, but I'm dubious as to the copyright status. The website that it is from - theperuguide.com - no longer exists, but when I go to an arbitrary old version from archive.org, I don't see any mention of Creative Commons licensing. It is, of course, theoretically possible that the particular page on which this image was located had a license grant, but the uploader did not include that exact page, so we have no way of checking.

Comment This poorly named file used to be the main infobox image for Nazi concentration camp commandant Franz Ziereis until this edit. As this is a historic encyclopedic photo, perhaps it can be uploaded to Commons (and renamed) instead of being deleted.

Well find me one. Photography was not as common in 1900 and 1924 as it is now! This picture is published in the official report of the 1924 (http://library.la84.org/6oic/OfficialReports/1924/1924.pdf) Olympics.

For example, pictures were probably published in advertisements for the event in 1900, in which case there are images which can be used under the copyright tag {{PD-US-1923-abroad}}. Have you searched for such advertisements? The infobox in Sailing at the 1900 Summer Olympics also says "Status: Complete", which seems to be different from "Status: Destroyed" in a different infobox in the same article. Does this mean that it is "Status: Not destroyed"? In that case, the image violates WP:NFC#UUI §1, as new photographs can be created. --Stefan2 (talk) 15:44, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

There is also another issue. I'm not sure that a picture of the building is needed to understand the subject of the article. The image seems to violate WP:NFCC#8. It also violates WP:NFCC#9. --Stefan2 (talk) 21:56, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Comment I forgot I couldn't use it in userspace. I've been hit with that before. I've removed it, so the second one shouldn't apply now. LazyBastardGuy 01:58, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

File:Ultraman Festival 2013.JPG[edit]

File:Ultraman Festival 2013.JPG (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Ryulong (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

Violates WP:NFCC#10c as it is used twice in the article Ultraman although the fair use rationale only covers one use. Also violates WP:NFCC#8 as a picture of a cosplayer, taken from a random website, isn't very helpful to identify the subject of the article. Ideally, the article should instead use an image from the TV series, for example File:Ultraman gyango ruffian from outerspace 19660925.JPG. Stefan2 (talk) 23:18, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Delete There is also a question of permission regarding the actual subject of the photo. Translation: Would the guy IN the picture agree to using the picture like this? LazyBastardGuy 04:25, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete I had assumed this was a fan pic, but apparently it is not, it says it is copyright the show's producers. Give it does not accurately depict the character as he appeared in the series, as a 200-ft tall spuerhero fighting godzilla-like monsters , and trampling trees and buildings, it serves no illustrative purpose. μηδείς (talk) 17:56, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep Per Medeis this isn't a random cosplayer but a promotional shot from the producers of the show. There is a better rationale for using a promotional shot of a character in an article then using a screen grab from a copyrighted work. — Strongjam (talk) 23:51, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

A photo of Siavash Ghomayshi that is almost certainly a copyright violation. This uploader's other image contribution was deleted as a flagrant copyright violation. This one is used all over the place and though I can't say for certain that the other uses didn't get the image from Wikipedia, this photo was clearly from the same photo shoot as http://www.siavashghomayshi.org/images/footer/2.jpg so I seriously doubt the license is legitimate.

The article violates WP:NFCC#3a: we don't need three non-free pictures of people. The pictures also seem to violate WP:NFCC#8 as the article could easily be understood without these images. --Stefan2 (talk) 11:03, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
