A word about image uploads[edit]

I know that you have uploaded several images.

First, I'd like to apologize - I initially thought that this image - Image:Lions-logo-52-60.gif - was vandalism before realizing that was an actual logo.

Please note that Wikipedia policies require all images to have the URL of the source. So in the case of the logos, even though the ultimate source was the Lions themselves, you need to specify the URL that you downloaded them from so that others can verify that they are what they claim to be.

In the case of Image:Lions-uniform-history.jpg and Image:Lions-uniforms-1969.gif, those images appear to violate criterion #1 of Wikipedia's fair use policy in that they are replaceable. Anyone can draw their own version of the Lions' uniforms and anyone can make a collage of Lions' uniforms.

In the case of Image:Barry-Sanders-bucs-1.jpg, while a photo of Barry Sanders may be irreplaceable, this photo is just being used to illustrate the Lions in general - and anyone could take a photo at any game for that purpose.

Reply[edit]

Big DT, Thank you for the comments on the individual images uploaded, I really appreciate you taking the time to take a look.

I am trying hard to balance being a loyal Lions fan while at the same time staying completely objective, and also keeping the NFL pages on Wikipedia as uniform and similar as possible.

I am slowly attempting to create my own historical uniform renditions of the Lions uniforms, but in the meantime I took a page from the Chicago Bears Uniform section.

Most importantly, I am trying to provide content in relation to the Detroit Lions, as this is an encyclopedia, content is the most important aspect, but for some people pictures are what keep people here. :-)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Barry-Sanders-bucs-1.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Barry-Sanders-bucs-1.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

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 any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.
