Fair use rationale for Image:Raycharlesmodernsounds.jpeg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Raycharlesmodernsounds.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 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 23:30, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music/GA2. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.
  • The article is over wikilinked (my constant complaint). Per WP:CONTEXT, years and months and such, when they are by themselves, should not be linked. I will remove a few.
  • You must have a consistent standard for formatting references. See WP:Citation templates and scroll down to where the templates xxx are. Or go to Template:Cite book. WP:Footnote gives an over all explanation. The issue is to choose a format and be consistent in the article. Always provide the publisher. And when you have a page range e.g. pp.56-67, you must use the pp. The single p. is for a single page.
  • Otherwise, I think this is a well-written concise article that wonderfully covers the subject matter. Very good.
  • I might worry about the use of Fair use images. Usually two well-justified ones are allowed in an article (rough rule). The album covers should not be a problem. (Although having two might.) I personally think the images enhance the article. But it is something to think about.
  • I fixed the footnoting problem, I think. So really, I think this article fits the criteria of a GA.
  • In the sentence: "As the songs provided the "country & western" foundation for the album, the musical arrangements represented the "modern" component" I would advise removing the scare quotes around country and western and modern, as quotes for no reason are frowned up.

I fixed the sentence and got rid of the cite webs.Dan56 (talk) 16:27, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

But why is Country & Western in italics? And shouldn't it be country and western (& is not encyclopedia unless that is a title, and I it doesn't seem to be a title)? And why is "modern" in quotes?

My bad; its now fixed Dan56 (talk) 17:14, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
