Unspecified source for Image:A1 05.jpg[edit]

I found Image:A1 05.jpg and noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. Someone will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If it was obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self-no-disclaimers}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If there are other files on this page, consider checking that they have specified their source and are tagged properly, too. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 04:49, 25 May 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Fair use rationale for Image:A1 05.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:A1 05.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.

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.Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 04:49, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Mark Read (singer)Mark Read – No one else called Mark Read (apart from the criminal, whose real name isn't used in the title of his article), and therefore really no need for a disambig page either. Unreal7 (talk) 15:27, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

  • I mean, as long as the article doesn't get AFD'd, sure. Support Red Slash 20:12, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose the pirate Mary Read used Mark Read as a pseudonym, therefore we have an article on it, and as she's a female soldier serving as a man under the name "Mark Read", she's the more encyclopedic topic. If we move the disambiguation page, it should redirect to Mary Read and not be the singer. -- 70.24.244.161 (talk) 06:45, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose - hate to sound like a stuck record, since this is probably the 30th or 40th time responding to one of Unreal7's RMs arguing WP:No other title by pointing out that WP:DAB says the exact opposite of WP:No other title in the first line. Unreal7, you seem like a nice person and respect to you for using the RM process, but the same argument again and again? What does "Mark Read" refer to in Google Books? Looks to me like the Australian criminal/author, either way it isn't the member of the boy band A1, sorry In ictu oculi (talk) 10:02, 10 February 2014 (UTC).
Correction, some of those Australia Mark Read refs in fact refer to Mark Read (bookmaker) (stub created), not Chopper Read, but all the same the boy band singer still is nowhere near WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. In ictu oculi (talk) 10:18, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose – That the Australian's article was created in 2003 as Chopper Read instead of Mark Brandon Read or Mark Read (serial killer) doesn't mean that he is not the primary search target for "Mark Read". That the body of his article doesn't use "Mark Read" is prescribed by MOS:BIO. There are probably even more Mark Reads waiting for Wikipedia articles, so the current situation with a disambiguation page seems very sensible. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 11:16, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I don't understand. I see plenty of people by this name and no persuasive reasoning for this singer as the primary topic. Several people indeed use this name—occasionally with items in-between—seems like a very clear case for a dab page. Ultimately, I'm just not swayed by the nom's argument. I am no longer watching this page—whisperback if you'd like a response czar  13:20, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose- Mark Brandon "Chopper" Read is the main target. Flat Out let's discuss it 04:40, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
