Orphaned non-free image File:Alien (1979) - space jockey.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Alien (1979) - space jockey.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 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 for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 03:25, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

List of zoo associations[edit]

I see that you reverted my edit to List of zoo associations. When intentionally linking to a disambiguation page, the link should either be piped through, or link directly to, the (disambiguation) redirect per WP:INTDABLINK. This helps those of us at WP:DPL (and the bots that help us) know that the link is intentional. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 06:20, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

I wasn't aware of that guideline. I'm still in the process of building the Zoological Society dab page (it involves going through the numerous articles that contain the phrase "zoological society" in order to identify possible search targets). Once finished, it is my intention to go through the pages that link to Zoological Society and repair the unintentional links to the dab page (the title formerly redirected to Zoological Society of London, which is likely the intended destination of most of those links). Once I've done so, there should be few, if any, intentional links to the dab page remaining. --IllaZilla (talk) 07:51, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
The links from articles that currently go through the Zoological Society (disambiguation) redirect almost all come from the template {{Zoos}}. Removing the link in that template would remove most of the unintentional links. When the page was turned into a disambiguation page, most of the incoming links at that time were intended to point to the London society, as you mentioned, but those were cleaned up within a few hours of the change.
Looking at the way the page is laid out, it is more of a set index page than a disambiguation page. The guidelines for set indices are a little less restrictive, as you don't have to follow WP:D – images, references and other things not normally found on a disambiguation page are allowed on set index articles. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 11:45, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
