Fair use rationale for Image:RobertWStraub.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:RobertWStraub.jpg. The image description 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.

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 fair use images 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.

Unspecified source for Image:BpSheen.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:BpSheen.png. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. cohesion 08:24, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Help Barbara Roberts Picture[edit]

I'm really frustrated with image tags on Wikipedia. Everytime I put up an image, it gets removed and deleted. I can't seem to find anyone to help me.

I posted this Image:Barbararoberts.jpg months ago and it's been removed and will be deleted in 7 days. For the life of me I don't understand the tag issue. Most all of the pictures I post have to do with state politicans. I've tried to find the right tag, but never able to and then the image gets removed and deleted. I appreciate you finding a replacement picture, but that one is hard on the eyes (because of the background). If you could help me I'd apprecaite it. Davidpdx 05:18, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I've have tried in the past to contact the SOS office about one of the pictures, but no one got back to me (I can't rememeber which one it was now). What a pain in the butt though. I used to edit quite a bit more often last year, but this year you'll notice it's been significantly less. There are two reasons, one is the edit wars with people and second is the lack of rules being enforced (or in this case as you pointed out over enforced).
I'll definately be edited less and less due to this policy. There are several bios I've written that had the pictures pulled, so it would be nice if someone would find a way to replace them. I kind of doubt I'm going to do it. Thanks again for the reply. Davidpdx 10:58, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
I understand perfectly your frustration, and share it to a great extent. I am sorry we seem poised to lose you as a contributor, and as a valued member of WikiProject Oregon. Frankly, as I have explained on the article page related to this one, I fear I am rapidly approaching the time when I am going to have to withdraw from Wikipedia, too.
I remember all too well when the first Tsunami of "fair use" image purges hit. I had just undertaken inventorying the articles within the scope of the Government & Politics subgroup of the Oregon project, and the wreckage was devastating. Templates which assumed the existence of an image were displaying garbage at the top of articles, and the clean up took days.
It is regrettable that nobody took time to explain to you what was wrong with your uploads, or what to do about it, before you had repeated the error over and over again. And, you're right, it is very unlikely that the images will be replaced in the foreseeable future, although the people executing the purge seem to believe that they are providing incentive for uploads of acceptable images to be increased. By setting the bar of acceptability unreasonably high, and the time involved in replacing a single one so long, their opinion seems to be based on idealistic fantasy.
I'm doing my best, but I cannot keep up with the rapidly growing number of impending deletion tags. It's definitely a recipe for near instant burnout. All I can say is that I'll keep trying for awhile, but it is definitely beginning to feel like a lost cause. "J-M" (Jgilhousen) 06:04, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
I don't blame you for feeling burnt out. I probably won't totally ditch Wikipedia, but the amount of time I have is significantly less. I'm in the process of returning to the US next year with my wife and finding a job so that's going to keep me busy. Thanks for working so hard on the Oregon articles. The group effort has really improved them a great deal in the last year, so I think we have made progress. Davidpdx 06:33, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Image:Roth richard.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Roth richard.png. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives 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. Localzuk(talk) 02:11, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Aflciologo2.gif)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Aflciologo2.gif. 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.

Fair use rationale for Image:Graham_sheilah.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Graham_sheilah.jpg. 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 ensure 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 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. Rettetast 14:52, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Image:HolmesRobtD.png[edit]

I have tagged Image:HolmesRobtD.png as {{no rationale}}, because it does not provide a fair use rationale. If you believe the image to be acceptable for fair use according to Wikipedia policy, please provide a rationale explaining as much, in accordance with the fair use rationale guideline, on the image description page. Please also consider using {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. Thank you. Rettetast 16:35, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Rettetast, JGilhousen has not been active on Wikipedia since January. However, looking at the image/article in question, it's immediately apparent that fair use would apply. Please be a good neighbor and fix it yourself rather than pursuing deletion and damaging the comprehensiveness of the encyclopedia. -Pete 18:06, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
