My schedule is packed enough that I'm basically still on wikibreak and will be back on Wikipedia in, what's a month from now? On 10 Sep 2018, perhaps. In the meantime, this is where I'll be, over there in that picture on the left. If you really want me for some reason, you can always email me.


It is better not to use abbrevations. An abbrevation is a three letter word in capital letters.

This will be better for readers.

I have no idea what you're talking about. Which abbreviation? Banaticus (talk) 17:42, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Bem casados.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Bem casados.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator seven days after the file was tagged in accordance with section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 21:16, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

"Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale." And it has both of those. Stop it, Stefan2, this is your third time with a silly rationale as to why that image needs to be deleted. Just stop, seriously. Banaticus (talk) 22:18, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

File:Bem casados.jpg licensing[edit]

Not sure why you licensed this file as {{Non-free film screenshot}}, but it shouldn't be licensed as such. Assuming this is a movie poster, you probably should use {{Non-free poster}} instead. As for the non-free use rationale, Stefan2 is correct in that the non-free use rationale should be specific to the particular use of the file and not just random/boilerplate language regardless of how many bullet points you use. You can revise the rationale accordingly by hand if you like, but you can also use {{Non-free use rationale poster}} as well. The template has the advantage of keeping things standardized and letting you know what information is required. Try to be as specific as possible and provide a source (preferably a link to the website where you found the file) so that its copyright status can be verified per WP:NFCC#10a. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:51, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of File:Mexican flag construction sheet.png[edit]


The file File:Mexican flag construction sheet.png has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unused (see WP:NOTWEBHOST), unclear purpose

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Was it perhaps replaced by commons:File:Mexico_flag_construction_sheet.png? I can't see it now, obviously, but was a reason given for its creation? Why was I notified? Banaticus (talk) 19:42, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
