Fair use rationale for Image:Purbleplace.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Purbleplace.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 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 04:04, 6 June 2007 (UTC)


Purble Places is not included in all versions of Windows Vista as the article suggests. Home Premium does not carry the game. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.100.53.80 (talk) 16:35, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure OEM copies of Home Premium carry Purble Place.--173.20.106.196 (talk) 13:25, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Where is the source for "only two recorded Master Chef scores"? There is no difficulty to achieving this, I've done it numerous times -- seems a spurious comment to make unless this really is a recognised difficult puzzle. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.10.96.10 (talk) 20:37, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Purble Place is first included in Windows with Vista. But Windows XP users can also play Purble Place using an emulator. In the following source, there is executable Purble Place for Windows XP for XP users. So instead of a work-around like this, Microsoft could provide a small set of game applications to run on Windows XP computers

Purble Place on Windows XP[edit]

(originally posted at User talk:67.174.105.246) Hi, I saw your edit and your edit comment Citation needed? I have an XP Tablet with Purble Place installed! How am I supposed to prove it?). I do sympathize, but even if you know it to be true you still have to find a source, otherwise the claim is what wikipedians call "original research". I hit exactly the same issue when I started here about five years ago. A google search for Vista games on XP is a good starting point but you'll need to find a reference from a reliable source, such as an article in a recognized newspaper or magazine. If you need any help formatting the reference please leave a note on my talk page. Good luck - Pointillist (talk) 14:40, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

I got it and other games from here: http://www.kodyaz.com/articles/play-purple-place-free-download-purble-place-for-Windows-XP.aspx 67.174.105.246 (talk) 20:50, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
(discussion moved to Talk:Purble Place)
Thanks for the quick reply. I browsed http://www.kodyaz.com/articles/play-purple-place-free-download-purble-place-for-Windows-XP.aspx and it says "I have gathered these installation files and the Vista.Emulation.DLL file from the following blog owners." I'm afraid that doesn't make it a reliable source, and the need for "Vista.Emulation.DLL" (apparently a third party component) doesn't support the implication that the game programs can be executed on Windows XP. From what I can see online, this is a hack. If there isn't a reliable source describing it, the section should be removed. - Pointillist (talk) 22:52, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
It's not a hack. The applications are the originals. The DLL is third-party, but it doesn't modify the application. It just adds some Vista coding to the system so it's compatible. It's not a hack so much as compatibility mode. 67.174.105.246 (talk) 01:22, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
That's one point of view, but you still need to find a reliable source to confirm it. Here's an explanation that might help. - Pointillist (talk) 07:31, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

I've removed the section for the time being. We can add it back if an appropriate source is found. - Pointillist (talk) 14:59, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

Would screenshots count as good sources? 67.174.105.246 (talk) 02:35, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
Sorry about the delay replying. The screenshot would have to come from a reliable source, because any screen capture can be faked. But if a good source has published a screenshot, I don't see why it couldn't be used as a source, even if copyright prevents it from being added to an article. But I think it is a bit more complicated here. As I understand it the idea is that by using third-party software it is possible to get the Vista versions to execute on Windows XP. How could a screenshot tell a story like that? - Pointillist (talk) 07:51, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
