License tagging for Image:OneCareinVista.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:OneCareinVista.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. 03:09, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Windows Vista[edit]

Your recent edit to this article was reverted. Why? Well if you'd read the notice directly beside the text you edited, you will see that it says not to change the build number unless it was announced by Microsoft. Build 5840 was't, and yet you changed it anyhow. That notice is there for a reason -- Wikipedia requires reliable sources for information it presents. Thanks. -/- Warren 05:52, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

please dont forget to cite your refs when adding information to an article. without cites, the information may be construed as original research. tx the_undertow talk 00:04, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Image tagging for Image:Office 2007.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Office 2007.JPG. The image has been identified as not specifying the source and creator of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the source and creator of the image on the image's description page, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided source information for them as well.

Fair use rationale for Image:WinSAT.PNG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:WinSAT.PNG. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Moe ε 23:10, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Canada's Wonderland[edit]

Hey! I'm just curious where you found that information on the new 2008 attraction. I have been looking everywhere for information on it but couldn't find anything. Thanks! - zachinthebox (UserTalk) 02:16, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Image:Mac_OS_X.png listed for deletion[edit]

An image or media file that you uploaded or altered, Image:Mac_OS_X.png, has been listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion.

Thank you. 203.192.81.123 07:37, 19 October 2007 (UTC)


Fair use rationale for Image:Leopard.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Leopard.png. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Mac OS X.png)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Mac OS X.png. 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. BJBot (talk) 19:43, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
