Fair use rationale for Image:Romania1950-1952.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Romania1950-1952.jpg is being used on this article. 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 this Wikipedia article 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.

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 there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. 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.

The result of the move request was: moved to Regions of the People's Republic of Romania. -- BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 19:14, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Administrative divisions of the Socialist Republic of RomaniaAdministrative divisions of the People's Republic of Romania – I know that, when a defunct state had more than one name, there's a general practice to use the final name of the state in article titles, but in this case, that's fairly absurd. Among the precious few differences between the Romanian People's Republic (RPR) and the Romanian Socialist Republic (RSR) was the ditching of the Soviet-style regions in favor of the more traditional counties. Yes, it's true that the RSR was established in August 1965 and that the change did not happen until February 1968. But in Romanian historiography, the regions are intimately associated with the RPR, and with good reason. The RPR was established in December 1947 and switched to regions fairly quickly, in September 1950. It continued using them for the remainder of its existence. The RSR leadership (i.e., Ceaușescu) had decided to scrap the regions by 1967, a little over a year into the RSR's existence, and implemented the change early the following year, after the work of drawing up the new subdivisions was complete. The RSR retained the counties until its collapse in December 1989.

In sum: yes, the RSR did briefly use regions, but that was an ephemeral and transitory period. For 90% of its history, the RSR was divided into counties, not regions. It was the RPR that set up the regions and used them for the remainder of its existence, and for that reason, the RPR alone is commonly associated with regions.

I'm aware that the corresponding category was also moved, and will ask for a move back to the original title, should this request succeed. Biruitorul Talk 16:44, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
