Fair use rationale for Image:The Argus' final issue.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:The Argus' final issue.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 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 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.

Disambiguator in title: The Argus (Australia)[edit]

I wonder why it's not specific to Melbourne. Is this the only Australian paper of this name there ever was or ever will be? I understand we're an international encyclopedia, but the vast majority of people reading this article would be Aussies, almost all of whom would know this was a Melbourne paper, and don't need to be advised that Melbourne is in Australia. And for those who don't know, the title should tell them.

The Argus (Melbourne) is a redirect, but should be the principal title, imo. -- ♬ Jack of Oz[your turn] 23:19, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

No objections after 20 months so I moved it. -- Jack of Oz [pleasantries] 02:20, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
