Image available[edit]

This image, of a page from a 966 charter of King Edgar's, in which he confirms the conversion of New Minster, Winchester into a Benedictine monastery, might be of use here. Mike Christie (talk) 16:55, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

New Minster Charter 966 detail Edgar.jpg
I made a crop of that image for Anglo-Saxon dress: Image:New_Minster_Charter_966_detail_Edgar.jpg. Would that be a better main image, being contemporary? - PKM 23:19, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
Update: I've uploaded a higher-resolution version of this image, and am updating the crops with higher-resolution versions as well. Dcoetzee 17:56, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Move Page[edit]

This article should be moved to Edgar of England. GoodDay (talk) 16:55, 27 January 2008 (UTC)Nevermind, I see it was just moved from there. Also, this is a pre-Norman Conquest monarch (I don't mind 'nicknames' on those monarchs). GoodDay (talk) 17:03, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Edgarobv.2.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Edgarobv.2.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.

Birth date query[edit]

The birth date of c. 7 August 943 was inserted without a citation on 16 May 2008 by an unregistered user who has made a grand total of 3 edits to Wikipedia. It seems never to have been queried or challenged in the past almost seven years. The first thing that strikes me is that someone has confused 7/8 with 8/7 (Edgar's death date, 8 July).

I'm tempted to remove it, but will just just ask for a citation at this stage, pending the response. -- Jack of Oz [pleasantries] 02:36, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

I've removed it. DrKiernan (talk) 09:30, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
