Hi there, Everything you see on this page (as of me writing this comment), besides the introductory paragraph, the "in fiction" section, and the references, was written by me. Well, perhaps "written" isn't the correct term. All I really did was translate es:Guerra de los Mil Días into English. However, the original Spanish page was somewhat confusing to decipher, so the page most probably contains a few inaccuracies. (Bavor Soviet Canuckistan Flag.PNG 02:36, 19 January 2007 (UTC))

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

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Colconservparty.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 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.

I don't think it makes sense to mention any of the political parties as contenders, as the war was between the legitime government and the guerrerist faction of the liberal party. Even Aquileo Parra, head of the liberal party at the time, was against the war. Besides, the conservative party was split in historic and nationalist, so what faction of the conservative party does the image represent?

Image copyright problem with Image:Liberalescol.png[edit]

The image Image:Liberalescol.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.

The following images also have this problem:

The articles on Panama paint the conflict as federalists vs. centralists whereas this article says it's a conflict between liberals and conservatives. So where exactly does Panama fit in and who was who? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:46, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
