Image copyright violations deleted[edit]

Hi Knobbie10, I have deleted:

Copyright violations are something we take very seriously at Wikipedia. Violating someone else's copyright potentially allows both Wikipedia and you to be taken to court. Please do not post any more copyrighted material to Wikipedia and never claim that you took copyrighted images when you clearly did not. Thanks, Gwernol 10:58, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

The copyright for these images is claimed by the Knob Noster school district. Even if you took them, the copyright appears to rest with the district, and you need to get the district's approval to place these into the public domain. Can you get someone from the school district to email a release to That way we can officially track the permission and allow the images to be reuploaded. Thanks, Gwernol 19:17, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Regarding the article...[edit]

Your best bet for an evaluation of your article would be to go to Wikipedia:WikiProject Schools and see what they think. Cheers, Lanky (YELL) 14:08, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

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

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:KnobNoster.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.

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 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. Rettetast 20:24, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:KnobNoster.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:KnobNoster.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. 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 it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 03:01, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, adding content without citing a reliable source, as you did to John McCain, is not consistent with our policy of verifiability. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. If you are familiar with Wikipedia:Citing sources, please take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. JEB90 (talk) 13:13, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Panthers banner combo color.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Panthers banner combo color.gif. You've indicated that the image meets Wikipedia's criteria for non-free content, but there is no explanation of why it meets those criteria. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. If you have any questions, please post them at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

Thank you for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 17:57, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Information.png The recent edit you made to the page Knob Noster High School constitutes vandalism, and has been reverted. Please do not continue to make unconstructive edits to pages; use the sandbox for testing. Thank you. William Avery (talk) 20:09, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Although you are the author of this article, significant edits to that article by people other than yourself. Therefore, it cannot be speedily deleted under the criteria you are requesting. Why would the school administration want it deleted in the first place? (talk) 20:14, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, got logged out during that last posting... Also, I couldn't help but notice that you described the article as a copyvio on User:William Avery's talk page. I would bring this up to an administrator, such as User:J.delanoy, User:PeterSymonds or any one of the active administrators on Wikipedia. UntilItSleeps PublicPC 20:15, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
