License tagging for Image:MacbethPosterA3.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:MacbethPosterA3.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 14:07, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Explanation[edit]

An article in mainspace shouldn't be quite so... well, forgive me for saying so, but quite so incoherent.

I have restored it and moved it into your userspace; you may work on it here. Please be mindful of our policies on copyright. DS 17:03, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

I have consulted with another administrator, who concurs with me that your version is still not coherent, and that it is a mess. Please do not work on it in the main article space until you have gotten it to a point where other users will agree that it is coherent. Instead, work on your non-public version, HERE. DS 17:31, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
I have also looked over the article myself and agree with DS. The article as it stands has the following issues:
It fails to comply with the Wikipedia Manual of Style
It is unsourced, which is in violation of WP:CITE as making it difficult to ascertain notability.
The article reads like an advertisement.

At a minimum, these issues must be addressed before the article is moved back to mainspace. Trusilver 21:46, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Macbeth page001.JPG)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Macbeth page001.JPG. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 13:52, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
