I'm pretty sure that a key is supposed to have images, otherwise how the heck is it a key?? It is absolutely no use at all— Preceding unsigned comment added by TheUltimatePerson (talk • contribs)
Not all the images have the same licence. Some (two I created for a start) are public domain. I think whoever removed the images was being a little overzealous. Naturenet | Talk 15:40, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
Hey, i added two new keys, one for Castles and the other For Abbeys/Priories/Religious buildings. The two icons i self created and are in PD so shouldnt be too many problems there. It seemed logical to add these two icons as there were already lists for castles and abbeys/priories in england. Asdfasdf1231234 16:35, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
Several times now people have re-added fair use images to this template. In particular, the images Image:NTE icon.png, Image:EH icon.png and Image:FC icon.png are all copyrighted, fair use images. Per our policy on fair use image use in this manner as described at WP:NFCC item #9, the use of fair use images on templates is not permitted. To all of you; please stop adding these images as it is a direct violation of policy. Thank you, --Durin 18:44, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
I would also like to note that this template's usage as a key to icons used on articles is inappropriate in the cases that I've seen so far. Please see WP:NOT#Wikipedia_is_not_an_indiscriminate_collection_of_information, specifically that Wikipedia is not a travel guide. The use of icons as they are being used in this case supports the concept of a travel guide. It's unnecessary and not encyclopedic. Further, the use of fair use images in this manner is not permitted as it serves a decorative purpose. I'm going to begin removing these icons, which will result in this template being useless. --Durin 20:33, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
On the fair use you've got a point. The removal of the other images is another matter. On the public realm images I think you may be stretching your point a little. Please allow some discussion on the removal of the non-fair use images before you do so. Naturenet | Talk 12:18, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
On a practical note, do you HONESTLY believe English Heritage, the Forestry Commission or National Trust give crap we're using their logos to designate sites which they own? be realistic here. 18.104.22.168 13:17, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
Actually (as a former NT employee) I'd say the NT probably do. I have written to them and asked them to clarify their position. Watch this space for an answer. The other two probably not as they're essentially government. But that's not the point - we should use all images in line with agreed policy as a matter of principle. If that policy is unnecessary or wrong - well, you know what to do about that. Naturenet | Talk 14:17, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
i just don't understand the reason for the policy- why are we not allowed to use the small images in templates? if they're allowed in the main article then why not in a template which appears solely in article space?22.214.171.124 19:39, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
Follow the link Durin gave to WP:NFCC item #9. The policy is all there. If you're not sure about that policy, ask on the talk page of that policy and no doubt somebody will explain. FWIW it seems counter-intuitive to me too, but I've got better things to do than argue the toss on that one. Naturenet | Talk 22:28, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
I can't be bothered to argue about the policy either, so the template can stay broken until someone finds the time. 126.96.36.199 23:03, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
There isn't anything to find the time for. It's important to understand that Wikipedia is not a travel guide. We are an encyclopedia. --Durin 23:50, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
Image:EH icon.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.
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.
