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  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.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 August 28}} 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 August 28}} 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.

File:Argentina - Político(regiones).png[edit]

File:Argentina - Político(regiones).png (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Dr-gonzo (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

Unused and unusable maps. They both differ from the originals on Commons in showing the Falkland Islands in a different color, but they do not format this change properly (the first map uses blue for the Falklands in the main map, but not the inset; the second uses a badly pasted British flag) and are inaccurate in doing so (the first map simply denotes the regions recognised by Argentina; the second correctly marks the Falklands as being claimed by Montevideo at the time). —innotata 04:12, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

File:Zeppelin6 htm webpage.pdf[edit]

File:Zeppelin6 htm webpage.pdf (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Pikipiki (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

Apart from the social media logos at upper right of the first page and the navigation bar on the last pages, the website elements on this screenshot are probably inelgible for copyright. However, even with them removed this PDF, rather than direct scans and the book's text, has no use on Wikipedia or other Wikimedia projects. —innotata 05:18, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

File:Yaser said3.png[edit]

File:Yaser said3.png (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Nothing149 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

Photo of a fugitive wanted by FBI, but not by the FBI and presumably copyrighted. Another photo of the subject, File:Yaser Abdel Said.png, is used in the subject's article, and I've tagged it as non-free; this one is not needed as a non-free image. —innotata 05:28, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

File:Willie Lamb.jpg[edit]

File:Willie Lamb.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Cowboy7777 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

No information on original publication date or source, or on the author. Even if it depicts him in 1928, it could have been created later, as it isn't a photo. This image's copyright status in Canada and US thus cannot be determined, and it is likely to be copyrighted. I assume using this as a non-free image would require some information on provenance. —innotata 05:39, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Unused personally created image of no encyclopedic value. Appears to be a derivative work using unlicensed copyrighted images. Geraldo Perez (talk) 14:20, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Could not a match anywhere except some obscure forum which says that this cover art is fake. As this is not official cover art and doesn't serve any encyclopedic value, I support a strong delete. --189.106.236.134 (talk) 22:59, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

File:Huygens landing01 L.jpg[edit]

File:Huygens landing01 L.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by MPF (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

This image is used under a claim of fair use as it was released by ESA and is considered non-free as the ESA copyright notice says that the images may not be used commercially and may not be modified.

However, 2 color versions of what appears to be the same image, or at least a very similar image, are on Wikimedia Commons and are flagged as public domain: File:Huygens_surface_color.jpg and File:Huygens_surface_color_sr.jpg.

The former comes from JPL and the latter comes from ESA's website. The description of the latter says that the Descent Imager/Spectral Radiometer instrument used to take the photo was being furnished by NASA for Huygens and that the University of Arizona was working under a contract for NASA during the mission.

There are three possibilities at this point: (a) the image is non-commercial fair use and cannot be replaced, (b) the image is non-commercial fair use and is replaceable by the two color images I mentioned, or (c) the image is public domain as it's produced by NASA.

The article discusses the cover and it's by far the most notable of all covers that have been recorded. Alecsdaniel (talk) 22:21, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
No it does not dicuss the cover in terms of disecting its composition, nor does it discuss how it varies from the original version to warrant a separate sample of the same song. Please touchbase your self with the different points of WP:NFCC#8 especially. —Indian:BIO [ ChitChat ] 08:00, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
It doesn't have to. All that WP:NFCC#8 requires is that its presence would significantly increase readers' understanding of the article topic, and its omission would be detrimental to that understanding. Hawkeye7 (talk) 08:33, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

File:Major Moon Collection Catalogue Cover.jpg[edit]

File:Major Moon Collection Catalogue Cover.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Tomintoul (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

This image fails WP:NFCC. It has been used in 3 articles: Arthur Moon, Ashley George Old and Prisoner-of-war camp and only one has a fair-use rationale which is contrary to #10c of our non-free policy. I removed the other two uses. Book covers are normally only used in articles about the book itself not in other articles, especially as all uses have no sourced critical commentary about the image itself. The fact that this collection catalogue exists, and in some cases, is clearly made by prose so the reader's understanding of the topic is not detrimentally affected by removing it. The use of this non-free image is unnecessary and purely decorative; it add nothing to the articles. ww2censor (talk) 18:14, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep file. The book cover adds massively to the understanding of the topics. It is compliant with policy. All the cited articles have been reviewed by multiple editors and the editor above is the only one to take the view the cover should be deleted. The cover was present when the Major Moon article featured in DYK and had thousands of views without issue.Tomintoul (talk) 18:57, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Please explain specifically how the use of this non-free image massively adds to the understanding of the topics. Normally that would be obvious from the non-free rational but two uses had none which is why I ask. The fact that multiple editors have reviewed the articles does not mean they have any knowledge or understanding on our non-free image policy nor that they even reviewed the image itself in that context. If there is any evidence of this please provide it. In fact many editors have no in depth knowledge of copyright and especially non-free images. As I already pointed out to you, a DYK has no bearing on the image use in an article and may never have even been considered, unless you have some evidence of that too. The number of article views has absolutely no bearing on this discussion. This only concerns whether the image fails or passes our non-free policy and if it does, each and every use must pass all 10 non-free image policy guidelines. Failing just one point fails the image from that article which is why for now the uses that lack rationales have been removed. ww2censor (talk) 14:10, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep Fair use rationale provided. Image does significantly add to the articles and is not purely decorative. Hawkeye7 (talk) 09:56, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
There is only a WP:FURG for one use, not for the 3 uses it had, and that rationale does not even have a decent reasoning.

Orphaned and likely a copyright violation. The image appears to be a scan from an encyclopedia or textbook. The image page states "Enciclopedia Combi Visual (1976)" which appears to be a Spanish encyclopedia, making me think it was probably scanned from that book.

  • Keep unless IndianBio can provide a better explanation of how this file is "duplicate non-free content". Presently, to me, it seems to be the only film cover/poster uploaded for use in this article and satisfies WP:NFCC as being contextually significant since it's the film's cover... --Nick⁠—⁠Contact/

Contribs 16:39, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

    • NickW557 please check the nominated image. It is not the film's poster which is nominated for deletion, it is the film's soundtrack cover. The cover fails WP:NFCC#3a here since an almost exact duplicate is the film's poster. —Indian:BIO [ ChitChat ] 05:46, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Sorry! But where is the duplicate that you are always talking about? Can you link it here? I failed to find it and I think NickW557 did too. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {Talk / Edits} 06:04, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
It would only fail WP:NFCC#3a if the film's poster had also been uploaded for use in the same article alongside the soundtrack cover, since it would be excessive to use both in the same article, if they're both nearly identical. However, I'm only seeing this one file used in the article. Per the text of WP:NFCC#3a, "Multiple items of non-free content are not used if one item can convey equivalent significant information" (emphasis is mine). This does not require zero non-free images, which is what we'd be left with if this image is to be called overuse. --Nick⁠—⁠Contact/Contribs 06:07, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment: I just want to comment something as bot identified my earlier comment as "bad faith" comment. Dharma is admin at "Commons" and he do know about "copyright" or "non-free content". Dharma has not mentioned this poster as "own work", if he would have mentioned it as own work then we could have thought about deleting it. I personally not much aware about licensing of such images but according to my experience "poster" or "song cover" is allowed to upload on Wikipedia if it is attributed to copyright owners and used only for identification purpose in the article. Such images are not allowed to use somewhere else and only meant to be used in infobox.

Thank you.--Human3015Send WikiLove  05:47, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Sorry! But you aren't worth spending time on right now. But if you happen to be hounding me again, you will be dragged to ANI for your worst. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {Talk / Edits} 06:02, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
@Dharmadhyaksha: I'm again saying you, you really can't dictate me, I'm free to comment on such India-related deletion threads. And please don't use such "destructive" language again and again, it will not work on Wikipedia. Regards. --Human3015Send WikiLove  06:38, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I'm just asking, where I can get list of such all face templates with various expressions, this is 2nd time you used such kind of template while in discussion with me. I want whole list of such templates so that I can use it while having discussion with others. --Human3015Send WikiLove  07:50, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Check Template:Smiley2 and Template:Emoji/Gallery and many others on Commons. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {Talk / Edits} 08:24, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. --Human3015Send WikiLove  08:40, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for striking your previous comments. It is rather misleading to claim that a bot tagged your previous !vote as bad faith, when in fact no such bot did any such thing. I had to consult the page history to assure myself that I hadn't missed a technological achievement that would have been the creation of a bot which could detect bad faith! --Nick⁠—⁠Contact/Contribs 06:07, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Hehe! They won't make such a bot. "Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind." §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {Talk / Edits} 06:30, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

File:Dykes to Watch Out For (Bechdel test origin).jpg[edit]

File:Dykes to Watch Out For (Bechdel test origin).jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Gobonobo (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

Unlike the rationale for File:Internet dog.jpg, where the article On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog is about the cartoon itself, the Bechdel test article is about the general concept of the test itself, not about the comic. If there were an article titled something like The Rule (comic) that featured sourced commentary on the comic strip itself I could see this being a valid rationale, but as it is the Bechdel test article only makes a passing of Dykes to Watch Out For and "The Rule" (the name of this particular strip), and makes no commentary on either the art, the characters, or the specific dialogue beyond a (non-verbatim) restating of the rules. There is absolutely no context lost by omitting the strip and keeping the restating of the rules that is already in the article. Ahecht (TALK

  • Delete per nom, fails WP:NFCC#8. Critical commentary is about the test itself, not about the comic. --Nick⁠—⁠Contact/Contribs 16:41, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep. This file meets all of the non-free content criteria, including #8. This image is from the strip that is the origin of the Bechdel test and its removal would be detrimental to readers' understanding of the topic. The Bechdel test#The Bechdel test section describes the strip, the characters, and the dialogue. If needed, more detail could be added here, as plenty of sources go into a fair amount of depth on aspects of this strip (like the fact that the marquee in the strip credits Liz Wallace; see also [1]). For readers unfamiliar with Dykes to Watch Out For, the image significantly increases their understanding of the topic, demonstrating the style and layout of the comic, the appearance of the characters, references to the era (1980s) when the strip was produced, and other details that the prose can't and doesn't adequately convey. Even for readers familiar with DTWOF, the image provides other crucial details. While the Bechdel test is also called the "Mo Movie Measure", we can see that Mo is not one of the characters in the strip. gobonobo + c 16:46, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
I don't think that "an unnamed female character says that she only goes to a movie if it satisfies the following requirements" qualifies as the level of sourced commentary required to reproduce this much of a copyrighted work. --Ahecht (TALK
