Fair use rationale for Image:ESC1996.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:ESC1996.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 Wikipedia articles 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 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.BetacommandBot 02:59, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

the countries that failed to qualify should not be listed as withdrawing[edit]

they failed to qualify through the semi-final. for consistency throughout all eurovision articles, only countries that actually withdrew should be listed under withdrawing countries. the number of participating countries should also changed to reflect the total number participating.(including those that failed to qualify through the semi-final.)

Not a chance of that ever happening. It was not an official semifinal, it was a "pre-qualification round" as too many countries wanted to take part. This is all detailed in the article, and even the official Eurovision and EBU websites do not classify the round as a semifinal. They do however, show the same countries as we have, as being withdrawn. We cannot deviate away from reliable sources, as this violates verifying rules and may result in blocking sanctions from future editing. Wes Mouse | T@lk 18:45, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
