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

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Loveheartslabelmedium.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.

Appropriate fair use rationale template has been added to the image page. - Zephyris Talk 23:33, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Too much info?[edit]

Is it me, or is there way too much info in this article? Do we really need to know every message that is available on the candy? Or that the colors on the box do not match the colors of the actual candies? The "Sweethearts" (American version) page is much shorter, but really contains only the info that is notable about the candy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 162.136.192.1 (talk) 17:58, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Have to agree that, although I'm a fan of depth and detail, this entry seems to have rather overstepped what's required! --Timetrial (talk) 18:31, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Whatevers?[edit]

It would be fun to see this text updated with details of Whatevers? Produced by Swizzels Matlow exclusively for ASDA these are the same as Love Hearts but with slightly less traditional messages! (Minger, Chav, Proper, Bothered, You What, Whatever, Mint, Respect, As If are all included!) --Timetrial (talk) 15:53, 24 April 2008 (UTC) http://www.marketingmagazine.co.uk/news/558319/ another source for whatevers. Are these still sold? 81.187.223.119 (talk) 07:40, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Incorrect History[edit]

History states that Swizzels were formed in 1933 and production of Love Hearts started at this time. According to Swizzels Matlow, the company is celebrating its 80th birthday in 2008 (which would put the formation of the company back to 1928) and that Love Hearts have been in production for 58 years (1950).

Unless the originator of the history text can provide a citation I will look to update this --Timetrial (talk) 09:10, 5 June 2008 (UTC)


There's some other really wonky chronology too: "Production of Love Hearts began in 1954...." but then "During the Blitz in 1940 production relocated to". --Agentforsythe (talk) 13:13, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

My Hermaphrodite???[edit]

I rather suspect that the "Example Messages" section has had some unofficial additions. It shouldn't be there at all without any references, but things like that one and "Franki the Love Bomb" seem *highly* unlikely to say the least. 81.158.1.233 (talk) 02:51, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

+1 - Also "Suck me harder" seems unlikely. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.194.212.13 (talk) 15:23, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

"My Hermaphrodite" and "Franki the Love Bomb" were already gone - and I've just removed "Suck Me Harder". (No wonder they were put in - this article is almost crying out to be vandalised!) Jcpren (talk) 22:58, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

No/ Barely any citations![edit]

I am not an expert on this topic, but I know thatvthere are not enough citations.. Like I just said, I'm not an expert on this subject, so I cannot do this. Any volenteers? Talk with Daylon ~~> (talk) 16:08, 24 October 2011 (UTC)
