Fair use rationale for Image:Dont Give Up The Ship Cover.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Dont Give Up The Ship Cover.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 lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Planning to redo this[edit]

This article needs a thorough scrubbing. For one thing, the title of the game is wrong - there is no published edition where the title ends in an exclamation point. The cover image should be of the first published version, the Guidon edition. Also planning to include a shot of Mike Carr running this game at Gen Con recently. Also warrants more Arneson - mentions of the unfinished "Ships of the Line" which was to be the campaign rules for DGUTS, more on the pre-publication editions, of Gygax and Arneson playing together in Arneson's Napoleonic campaign, etc. Just putting this as a courtesy in case anyone is watching and seriously objects to this plan.
