Fair use rationale for Image:Freedom pass.jpeg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Freedom pass.jpeg 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.

Freedom Pass Update[edit]

A very good friend of mine (who has a disabled persons Freedom Pass) noticed that the photo relating to this article is of an older style Elderly Persons Freedom Pass (blue colour) where-as my friends Disabled Person Freedom Pass is orange, not blue.

If you go to FreedomPass.org you can see the three different types of Freedom Passes located on the right hand side of the page.

Would someone be willing to please update the image of the Freedom Pass for my friend who would like to see this happen.

Thanks!

(P.S: I cannot do this myself as I do not have enough experience to do it, however if asked I could perhaps to provide the image for you to deal with).

Reversion of significant edit of 7 May 2011[edit]

I've reverted the whole edit of 11:04, 7 May 2011 by Kikodawgzzz. It has a lot of issues, some of which I'll specify (the first ones found, not a complete or representative list). Some opinion and "original research" has been added. Some correct information has been replaced by incorrect. References are given which don't support the text they follow. Far too much detail has been added to the introduction.

I'm not objecting to these specific points only, but to the whole tone and form; fixing the specific points I've mentioned is not enough to make the edit an improvement over previous text.

  • "have a significant physical disability"; it's a disability "on a formal specified list", not one judged "significant". Even if this were true it wouldn't be the best wording; but it's not; neither a learning disability (6) in the list nor not being eligible for a driving licence (7) are necessarily physical disabilities, or significant.
  • "The Freedom Pass has quite a bit of flexibility but is also subject to quite a few restrictions, some of which can be confusing." The rules need to be stated, the opinion we can leave out
  • "The card is accepted at most times on areas that are within London fare zones 1 through 9." Vague enough to be untrue; original was explicit. Valid at all times (excepting only a few rail services). Ref given for this is map, which doesn't support the statement. The original (see scope and validity section) was explicit rather than vague, and correct.
  • "On most National Rail services, only passes issued because of disability can be used..." Simply untrue, age pass valid on most services. Original text before this edit was correct.
  • "...and even this acceptance is only valid between 04:30 and 09:30 on working days." Why opinion "even"? Just state the facts.
  • "a 'workaround' is available to Freedom Pass holders seeking to save money on a fare: It is only necessary to buy a ticket for the section of travel not covered by the Pass. This can be..." Why express this as a workaround for a problem? The pass is valid qwithing london; travel outside london must be paid for. simple fact.
  • "The card cannot be used at all outside of England; it is not valid anywhere else in the UK." why express this negatively? it is valid for bus travel in england (but nowhere else)
  • etc etc
