Fair use rationale for Image:North Texas Solid Green Diving Eagle Left.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:North Texas Solid Green Diving Eagle Left.png 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 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.

Image copyright problem with Image:Mean Green Eagle Double Stacked.png[edit]

The image Image:Mean Green Eagle Double Stacked.png is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

Colors[edit]

Green, white and black are now official colors as per linked reference. See: jerseys, logo, basketball jerseys...68.185.200.199 (talk) 17:39, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

Please leave them at green and white. The NTSU "identity guide" cited for adding black, presents marketing guidance for branding and identification purposes and may or may not reflect the official, historical story of the school's colors. Moreover, the alumni association, while not "the" school, certainly has a long association with it and absent indications to the contrary is also a reliable source for information about the school; and that site's recitation of the color history is at least minimally more informative and historical than the identify guide's. Finally, the official athletic website identifies only green as an official color - see here. Given the disparity among the sources, if we don't limit the article to the colors these reliable sources agree on, there's no good reason not to include the additional navy and gold cited by the alumni. I'm changing it back to green and white alone. Please discuss any further changes here. Thanks. JohnInDC (talk) 17:46, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
Additional - and fully official - site identifying only green and white: http://www.unt.edu/identity/history.htm. JohnInDC (talk) 17:50, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
Another, referencing green. http://www.unt.edu/traditions/ Also NB the name of the Alma Mater: "Glory to the Green and White". JohnInDC (talk) 17:52, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
So, the official identity guide, which is the official source for branding and colors is not official enough? Lol alright. 68.185.200.199 (talk) 18:06, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
We have a single source - a limited purpose university page giving branding and marketing guidance - that identifies "black" as a school color. We have three other sources, two of them official NTU sites, that identify only green, or green and white; and one final reliable and closely affiliated source that identifies green and white and navy and gold - and not black. "Black" is distinctly in the minority here and the one source that includes is plainly not intended as any historical or official word on the issue. JohnInDC (talk) 18:29, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
