License tagging for Image:Internationalized shogi.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Internationalized shogi.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:

Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a mere directory of links nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that exist to attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam policies for further explanations of links that are considered appropriate. If you feel the link should be added to the article, then please discuss it on the article's talk page rather than re-adding it. See the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. Thank you.

Please stop adding inappropriate external links to Wikipedia. It is considered spamming, and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising. Thanks. Naconkantari 02:22, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Re: External links[edit]

Hello! The template that you cited on shogi is actually intended to convey the opposite meaning, although I can understand where the template can easily be misinterpreted. Instead of saying that the section allows such external links, it instead informs readers that the section may already have such links and requires cleanup to remove any excess and inappropriate links used for spamming. I've reworded the template slightly to make that clearer, which will hopefully solve the problem. Again, though, as a general rule of thumb, links need to contribute significantly to articles in order to be added, and the inclusion of links for commercial purposes is heavily frowned upon, even considered spamming. I hope I've made that clear and answered your questions; if not, please don't hesitate to ask for clarifications or any further questions. Thanks! Flcelloguy (A note?) 03:34, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

I haven't examined any of the external links currently in that section, but the current presence of such links which may be inappropriate doesn't mean that more such links of the same type can be added. Instead, the cleanup tag has been placed there to alert other editors that the section needs some cleaning and trimming to make it comply with our standards. Thanks!

This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a company or corporation, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for companies and corporations.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:Internationalized shogi.JPG requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I10 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a file that is not an image, sound file or video clip [i.e. a Word document or PDF file] that has no encyclopedic use.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.
