I saw a page where the link had messed up a bit: Image:Huddersfield1000px.jpg Does that always happen? - Nojer2 07:41, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

{{editprotected}} Suggestion: I think "creator" should be replaced with "copyright holder"--Fallout boy 04:29, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

  • I believe this template is for use only with media actually created by the uploader. howcheng {chat} 20:03, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
That is the crux of my confusion - I have some images that the creator has given permission to use in Wikipedia, for me to put up. This sounds like the tag to use. But of course, how does Wiki know that I actually have valid permission - this tag, as I see it , could be badly misused. --Dumarest 14:49, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Resolved: Has been 5 years. —Pengo 03:24, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Why does this license have "Subject to disclaimers"? Other PD licenses such as {{PD-self}}, {{PD-old}} and {{No rights reserved}} do not have this disclaimer clause. Pengo 01:36, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

Has been 5 years and no responses or complaints about removal of disclaimers. Can only assume it's not a problem. —Pengo 03:24, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

If the username is not supplied...[edit]

shouldn't this put the image into a maintenance category of some kind? I just ran across a tag I left incomplete for almost two years; nobody seemed to have noticed. -- Visviva 12:35, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Agreed - I've developed some code to categorise this into an appropriate category. It also gives a warning if no username is specified. Could an administrator review this and incorporate it if they feel appropriate. – Tivedshambo (talk) 20:01, 6 June 2007 (UTC)


1) Replace line beginning "This image" with:

This image has been (or is hereby) released into the '''[[public domain]]''' by its creator{{#if:{{{1|}}}|, [[:{{#if:{{{2|}}}|{{{2}}}:}}User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}.]]|.<br/><font color=red><center>Warning - no username has been specified.</center></font>}} This applies worldwide.<br/>

2) Before the noinclude tag, add

<includeonly>{{#if:{{{1|}}}||[[Category:User-created public domain images without user-name]]}}</includeonly>

I don't understand the {{{2}}} parameter. It looks as though it will break the link. --MZMcBride 20:52, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
That's already in the code - it links to non-English wikis. See usage above. – Tivedshambo (talk) 20:57, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Cheers. --MZMcBride 21:05, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. Images with incomplete tags now appear in Category:User-created public domain images without user-name. – Tivedshambo (talk) 21:30, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
You should do the same thing with the templates on commons, which has a much greater supply of images released into the public domain by their creators. — CharlotteWebb 22:12, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Multiple users?[edit]

If an image such as Image:WordmarkEX.png has multiple authors, and all of them grant PD-user, what is the syntax, or is there a different template to use? --Damian Yerrick (talk | stalk) 17:20, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Possibly answering my own question: It appears that each contributor can add {{PD-retouched-user}}. --Damian Yerrick (talk | stalk) 15:35, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Error class + <br> tweaks[edit]

{{editprotected}} Please replace the page with the contents of {{PD-user/sandbox}}. It adds the error class for consistency and cleans up the superfluous <br> elements. Thanks. —Ms2ger (talk) 18:40, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Font size + disclaimers[edit]


Firstly, in line with the other PD tags, please change the image size to 40px. Also, why does this template have "subject to disclaimers" in it? ViperSnake151 16:43, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Question:: It seems that some of the other PD templates also use a 52px image, especially ones of this size. Is this just inconsistency that has yet to be corrected, or are both used? --lifebaka (Talk - Contribs) 19:42, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
I brought up the disclaimers over 2 years ago both above on this talk page, and on the relevant policy discussion page and there appears to be no reason for it being here. As there's no objections I'm going to remove it. (You've had two years, people) —Pengo 23:38, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Done, mostly. Pengo removed the disclaimer, but it seems like the image is just fine at 52px as is, by which I mean it fits and generally looks good. Cheers. --lifebaka (talk - contribs) 19:03, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Free media[edit]


Please add {{free media}} onto the line


In between the }} and the noinclude tag. This will help with tracking how many free files are currently on Wikipedia, and has already been done on most of the PD tags. It actually looks like it was added, but then removed when the template was converted to use imbox format, presumably by accident. Thanks! –Drilnoth (TC) 02:09, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Please Copy edit template[edit]

"If case this is not legally possible..." should be corrected to "In case this is not legally possible..." Schmausschmaus (talk) 13:36, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Free images of Non-free subject[edit]

In the sandbox version, I've made a minor tweak, to supress the categorisation as 'free media' where the image is not suitable for commons, typically because it's a non-free subject.

It would be appreciated if the sandbox version could be reviewed and the change implemented into the main template.Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:38, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Done. Please remember to update the documentation as well. Thanks — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 10:55, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Free images of Non-free Subjects[edit]

Please revert to - http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:PD-user&oldid=535749274 as the tweak doesn't seem to work as expected. Thanks Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:21, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
