Mention the Commons?[edit]

Images marked with this text are candidates to be moved to the Wikimedia Commons - a shared holding of content for all Wikimedia projects.

I'd like to suggest adding the above text, or a variant, to this template. -- Netoholic @ 20:59, 2004 Nov 24 (UTC)

I agree. - Omegatron 18:27, Mar 28, 2005 (UTC)
This template tells visitors interested in an image about its copyright status. We shouldn't bother them with our editing chores. Now, if you wanted to start a project based on what links here, that would be an intirely different matter. Aliter 16:19, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I agree. - Omegatron 19:13, Apr 3, 2005 (UTC)

It dissappoints me that the dialog died here, with no possible solutions. I'm going to take this to bot requests to see if a bot will come along to tag images tagged with this and related templates with {{Move to Commons}}. -- Reaper X 08:29, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

interwiki link[edit]

Please add th:แม่แบบ:PD for Thai interwiki link. Thanks --Jutiphan | Talk - 20:14, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

 Done - Harryboyles 04:13, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

What about adding this category Category:PD tag needs updating? --evrik (talk) 21:31, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Free media[edit]


Please have this transclude {{free media}} (yes it's deprecated, but the purpose of this template is to allow bots to notice a contradiction between free and non-free tags on an image). --Random832 01:01, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

done. — Carl (CBM · talk) 02:22, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Category:PD tag needs updating[edit]

{{editprotected}} Please, add <includeonly>[[Category:PD tag needs updating|{{PAGENAME}}]]</includeonly> for helping us in updating this template..--OsamaK 09:38, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

For what its worth, I would second this request. --Iamunknown 17:11, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Cheers. --MZMcBride 04:26, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Edit request[edit]

{{editprotected}} Request the following be added at the end of the template:

<br /><br />''If an image was uploaded with this template after '''[[1 May]] [[2008]]''', it should be tagged with {{[[:template:no license|subst:nld]]}}. If the copyright status of images tagged with this template and uploaded cannot be confirmed as free, they should be [[Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion|listed for deletion]].''

This will prevent further new images with this deprecated license template being added while existing images are cleaned up. Kelly hi! 01:14, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

I would suggest that this requested edit be put on hold at least until editors are aware of it and can discuss it. --Iamunknown 03:39, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
I would agree to this change, because tagging it with this is like tagging it with a disambiguation page, which leaves others guessing at to what kind of public domain image it is, or if it is public domain at all. This would at least discourage the laziness to some extent. — Κaiba 08:16, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
I'm absolutely not suggesting a mass delete of old images with this tag - only preventing new ones from being added. Kelly hi! 11:49, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
Not done Seems this is not really uncontroversial or supported by consensus. Happymelon 14:14, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Add iw[edit]

Please add interwiki


. Thanks. --Sevela.p 15:19, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

I did that, and made a doc page so that more can be added without admin help. — Carl (CBM · talk) 15:53, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Deprecated - why?[edit]

Was there a discussion and consensus before this was deprecated? If so, where? ([Edit that deprecated it].) --Elvey (talk) 23:36, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Yes and where are the suggestions about what to use instead? We need much more explanation otherwise very few will be able to fix this. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 03:26, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Public Court Records[edit]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Image_copyright_tags/Public_domain has no entry for such records. I believe all court filings are public records, and therefore public domain (for example, all the court filings posted on thesmokinggun.com, or Scientology documents filed in court and subsequently widely disseminated, with the court record being used as justification for publishing an otherwise secret document). Evidence: "the public record of any court case [is] in the public domain" according to public domain, with a citation. Perhaps we need a pd-court tag with the explanation in quotes above.--Elvey (talk) 23:36, 24 November 2008 (UTC)


{{editprotected}} The depreciation message should probably mention Wikipedia:Image copyright tags/Public domain, since many of these are probably things that are PD, but just need a more specific tag, which the current wording doesn't make obvious where to find. (talk) 19:23, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Could you put your proposed code in the /sandbox? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 08:39, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Edit request[edit]

{{Editprotected}} Please assist Per Wikipedia:Templates_for_discussion/Log/2010_August_20#Template:PD, please add {{Tfd}} or a similar notice. Thanks. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 18:45, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

The result was "redirect" to {{PD-because}}. Note I've left Template:PD/doc intact because PD-because doesn't have a documentation. Airplaneman 03:19, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Rcats needed[edit]

Both this template, Template PD, and the other shortcut, Template:Pd, need redirect category templates added. Please make the following edits to both shortcuts:

from this...
#REDIRECT [[Template:PD-because]]
to this...
#REDIRECT [[Template:PD-because]]
Please leave one line blank
{{This is a redirect|from template shortcut|protected}}
