Fair use rationale for Image:Kinja screenshot.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Kinja screenshot.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.

Submitted this article for deletion; I see it referenced at http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9900E4DB1539F932A35757C0A9629C8B63 now, and I'd be willing to reconsider or revoke the PROD if there was more information on why this page would serve an encyclopediac notice. The New York Times is certainly a notable source, and the article's namesake's creator runs Gawker too, I believe, but I'm not entirely sold on how it fits in with an encyclopedia. Say someone wanted to know about the early history of blogs, how they developed, et cetera- would this be information that would be pertinent or helpful in understand, or superfluous and unnecessary?

I was just doing research regarding the rise and fall of social media companies, and this is one of the only places that still has real information about Kinja. Kinja was meant to be a big deal, founded by two notable figures in blogging, and failed. I'm not saying that every company deserves an entry, but this particular one could be a valuable resource. Say someone is doing research on early blogging; every day more and more sources for info on early blogs, failed social startups, and etc disappear. Just because that external information is gone, doesn't mean the entry should vanish as well, if anything it should remain as a record and a resource. The page needs a bit of work, but there are still lots of people out there with knowledge of the topic. 69.204.251.74 (talk) 17:31, 4 March 2009

Comment: I can't say I disagree with you there, necessarily. It would be cool if the article reflected what you said- Kinja was supposed to be a big deal, and flopped hard. Given the notability of the creators, that would certainly be scholarly in note, even as a footnote, of what not to do, or how other people have tried and failed, to learn from it. But I can't find any information on the how or why it did, otherwise I'd happily fill that information in myself. I dunno. Thoughts? Ks64q2 (talk) 22:09, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
I was just to add the New York times reference, to my surprise I see you already found it, yet the article was tagged as lacking primary sources. I would say, that if Kinja finds way into the NYT technology section, then it deserves a record in Wiki Power.corrupts (talk) 14:46, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Decade gap[edit]

This article needs some improvement. There is a decade long gap. What happened with kinja between 2003 and 2013? Dtaylor05 (talk) 00:29, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

Unless there are separate sources that discuss this, it's better off merged to the main Gawker article in a section about its tech I am no longer watching this pageping if you'd like a response czar 22:10, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
