Fair use rationale for Image:Logo PP 2.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Logo PP 2.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 ensure 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.

Progressive Party (Brazil)Progressives (Brazil) – Name changed (see site). 191.205.58.245 (talk) 17:15, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

This is a contested technical request (permalink). 191.205.58.245 (talk) 17:16, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment. If renamed, should be to Progressistas. What is this mania with translating everything? -- Necrothesp (talk) 16:07, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Support. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 177.102.161.166 (talk) 21:46, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The party name changed to Progressistas, which is not Progressives; Progressives is a translation attempt.
    Alternative: This could possibly be moved to Progressistas itself. There is no principle by which every political party article has to have "Party" or "(party)" in its title. It could also be at Progressive party (Brazil) as a descriptive name (note the lower-case "party"), but that may not be the best solution.

  • Closing comment: Nom just cites the change of official name, and a primary source to which they don't even link. Unsigned support from another IP gives no argument at all. Complete waste of time. Andrewa (talk) 20:08, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

Progressive Party (Brazil)Progressistas – Name changed (see official website). 201.0.45.54 (talk) 22:55, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

This is a contested technical request (permalink). 201.0.45.54 (talk) 23:00, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment: While this is not just a repeat pf the RM I just closed, and is to a name suggested by several editors there, there is a similar total lack of valid rationale. Perhaps SMcCandlish and/or Necrothesp would like to comment? Andrewa (talk) 01:02, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Support: The official website confirms the change. I have a source that also confirms it.[1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 177.188.232.114 (talk) 12:44, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Weak support, as sufficiently WP:PRECISE. There is no principle by which every political party article has to have "Party" or "(party)" in its title. It could also be at Progressive party (Brazil) as a descriptive name (note the lower-case "party"), but that may not be the best solution, since it's a combination of a descriptive name and a parenthetical disambiguation. That term and Progressives (Brazil) should exist as redirects. There's probably not enough material in English on this subject to do a proper WP:COMMONNAME analysis. There's a tension between WP:NATURAL and WP:USEENGLISH here, but we have many, many articles at un-translated non-English names where a translation is not demonstrably the most common name in RS, e.g. Académie française, etc.  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  15:44, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
