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  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.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=2014 July 9}} 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=2014 July 9}} 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:

  • (None at this time)

This screenshot encompasses several non-free works, each belonging to several authors, which is itself a violation of WP:NFCC#3. However, per WP:NFCC#1, the entire image is redundant and words alone are enough to serve its very simple purpose. Codename Lisa (talk) 07:59, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Keep I don't see this at all. What "several non-free works"? It's a screenshot of one message from a single program. NFCC#3 does not apply. The image is not redundant because it is the only screenshot. So NFCC#1 does not apply. --John Nagle (talk) 18:17, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi. The "several non-free works" refers to Windows XP taskbar, Microsoft's volume control icon, MSN Messenger icon and Babylon icon, so yes, it violates WP:NFCC# in a big way. In addition, even without these, it is still non-free and words alone can replace it. Hence, per WP:NFCC#1, it cannot exist. Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 06:00, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
Cropped image to remove icons from Windows toolbar. The argument that "words alone can replace it" would apply to almost any image. John Nagle (talk) 18:55, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Taskbar, not toolbar. And the latter is a far-from-truth argument that chiefly uploaders make. The main purpose of this image just to show one sentence among the non-free decoration. That sentence itself is copyright-free. In Wikipedia, one should learn to let go of non-free things; although I don't insist if don't wish to. Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 06:44, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
It's useful to retain the image because the content is controversial and involves a matter of public interest. This is appropriate use of non-free content. John Nagle (talk) 20:03, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Every article in Wikipedia is about a matter of public interest and all of them are expected to adhere to WP:NFCC. Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 20:30, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Missing evidence that this is in the public domain in both the United States and the United Kingdom.

To be in the public domain in both countries, the photograph must satisfy all of the following criteria:

  • The photographer must have become known within 70 years after the creation of the photograph.
  • The photographer must have died more than 70 years ago.
  • The photograph mustn't have been published before 2003.
  • The photograph must have been published before the 70th anniversary of the photographer's death.

To be in the public domain in only the United States, it is sufficient if the photograph satisfies all of the following criteria:

  • The photographer must be known.
  • The photographer must have died more than 70 years ago.
  • The photograph mustn't have been published before 2003.

To be in the public domain in only the United Kingdom, it is sufficient if the photograph satisfies all of the following criteria:

Case 1: known photographer
  • The photographer must have died more than 70 years ago. Otherwise, it is unfree in the United Kingdom as {{PD-old-70}} isn't satisfied yet.
  • The photograph must have been published before the 70th anniversary of the photographer's death. Otherwise, it is unfree per Article 4 of the Copyright Duration Directive.
Case 2: unknown photographer
  • The photograph must have been published more than 70 years ago. Otherwise, it is either unfree for not satisfying the criteria in {{PD-UK-unknown}}, or because of Article 4 in the Copyright Duration Directive.

The uploader claims that the photographer is unknown, but hasn't provided any evidence of this. If this is copyrighted in the United States, it needs to be treated as unfree. There is currently no evidence that the file satisfies WP:NFCC#4. Stefan2 (talk) 19:47, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure why you moved the goal-posts. First you thought it ok as long as the resolution was reduced, to satisfy 'fair useage', but now you've come for it again citing different rules? As I said the photo was taken in 1929, unknown photographer, possibly by a family member, or someone commissioned by them.Rodolph (talk) 09:49, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Violates WP:NFCC#3 and WP:NFCC#8. The image of a MetroCard's face is already found in the article. We don't need additional images to tell the reader that other types of MetroCards exist. RJaguar3 | u | t 01:57, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Comment: Are these images non-free? Seems to me they consist of words alone and simple geometric shapes. {{PD-text}} perhaps? Codename Lisa (talk) 18:58, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
    • I think they all are. I point to (1) the large number of elements combined on the card, which may meet TOO, (2) the shadow effect of the letters on the first three images, and (3) the gradient in the background on the last image. RJaguar3 | u | t 23:16, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep all of the images: There is nothing wrong to tell the readers there is multiple types of MetroCards. The Metrocard has many types of use. BWCNY (talk) 17:59, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Fails WP:NFCC#1, as a file select dialog in Linux would serve the same purpose. RJaguar3 | u | t 02:08, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Delete. Nominator is right. In fact, such an image may be available in the Help pages of Wikipedia. Still, I'll see what I can do about a replacement. Codename Lisa (talk) 19:04, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

The image on the right has been altered from this screenshot. You can see it has been flipped horizontally and drastically cropped. This misleads the viewer about the subject. Without going on rant, the point of this picture was to show similarities between Kimba and The Lion King. The comparison falls flat when the images are not equally acquired. I can't vouch for the authenticity of the image of the left, but it wouldn't be a stretch to assume it was altered in a similar way, as this file was originally taken from a bias fan website, no longer online  Noahcs  (Talk) 04:21, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Delete Undocumented modifications applied raises serious WP:NPOV and WP:V concerns. Although this image is probably not eligible for speedy deletion with {{di-no source}}, it nonetheless does not have adequate source data. Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 19:35, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Not sure why it is listed as unfree, but it isn't used anywhere, so it doesn't look useful to keep. Stefan2 (talk) 09:20, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Undated media, making it difficult to verfiy the license given. Permission claim seemingly made, but no visible OTRS confirmation. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:01, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

I uploaded the file as user MoreThings. I'll try to send through the permission. 80.174.78.120 (talk) 13:14, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
  • There is no evidence that the photographer either is unknown or dead since at least 70 years, as required by the template. Unless this can be verified, the image should be deleted. --Stefan2 (talk) 18:28, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

This non-free splash screen image fails to comply with WP:NFCC because its inclusion does not increase the reader's understanding of the article. Words alone are enough to describe it. A screenshot is preferred. Codename Lisa (talk) 14:52, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
