Fair use rationale for Image:WalterBryanEmery.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:WalterBryanEmery.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 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.

Firecircle (talk) 06:31, 4 February 2008 (UTC) The notice on this page asked for help in adding pertinant information. I have been trying to do this, along with appropriate references. However, as soon as I log off, and come back to the article, all the additions have disappeared. Also, why does the photograph provided not meet with your approval? It is a picture of the man in question. Is its publication in Wikipedia a violation of someone's copyright? Please respond. Thanks. Firecircle (talk) 06:31, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Firecircle (talk) 00:31, 5 February 2008 (UTC) The page seems to be operating Ok now. I don't know what the problem was. However, I am still interested in why the "deletion" notice is on the picture (although I'm not the one who put the picture on the page). Firecircle (talk) 00:31, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Firecircle (talk) 01:12, 5 February 2008 (UTC) I think I may have found a copyright notice by © Francesco Raffaele, 2002. His site can be found on the internet. Is there any way you can check this? Firecircle (talk) 01:12, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Firecircle (talk) 22:10, 5 February 2008 (UTC) The picture accompanying this article had a deletion notice attached. I probably did the wrong thing by replacing it with a caption. I have found this same picture all over the internet and assumed it was public domain. Has someone complained of their copyright infringement? The picture has been on there for more than six months. I found this out when I learned how to interrogate Wikipedia concerning the problems involved. If I did wrong, my apologies--it won't happen again. If need be, put the warning back.

Firecircle (talk) 05:32, 8 February 2008 (UTC) I have added a wealth of material (much of it from the cover of his book Archaic Egypt), although I did my own wording of the material. I'll bet we can remove the "stub" statis from the article soon. How about it? Firecircle (talk) 05:32, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Lifetimes ambition[edit]

I briefly met prof Emery in Egypt during the 1967 excavation season. He mentioned that his lifetimes ambition had been to find the tomb of Imhotep. With the discovery of the cache of mummified animals he thought that he was getting close.

On balance of known evidence prof. Emery thought that HorAha was probably the first pharaoh.

According to some newspaper reports prof Emery was holding the statue of an Egyptian god when he suddenly died. His wife Molly said that this story was untrue. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:45, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
