Images of characters played by actors and actresses are only fair use in the articles about the characters. They can not be used in articles about the actors or actresses. One Night In Hackney303 11:07, 1 March 2008 (UTC)


Image copyright problem with Image:MickeyRooney.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:MickeyRooney.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 17:33, 1 March 2008 (UTC)


Fair use rationale for Image:Arthur bea 320x240.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Arthur bea 320x240.jpg. 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.

Warning for reverting edits[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Mickey Rooney. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions in a content dispute within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. Please also familiarise yourself with Wikipedia's policies on the use of unfree images, specifically Wikipedia:Fair use. The warnings that preceed this indicate that you have already been warned, so there is no reason for you to be unaware of policies by now. It is not acceptable to use an unfree image when a free image exists. This is not open to discussion as it is a Wikipedia policy. Please stop reverting this image.

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 19:22, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

March 2008[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Please do not vandalize pages, as you did with this edit to Gene Wilder. If you continue to do so, you will be blocked from editing. Will (talk) 20:43, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Stop hand nuvola.svg

This is your last warning. You will be blocked from editing the next time you vandalize a page, as you did with this edit to Hillary Rodham Clinton. Will (talk) 20:44, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Again. Stop vandalising pages. This edit to another editors page is vandalism. You have no business making any edits to another user's page, especially one that you've been engaged in an edit war with, so leave them alone. Rossrs (talk) 21:40, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Arthur bea 320x240.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Arthur bea 320x240.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-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 this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. RoninBK T C 13:42, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Arthur bea 320x240.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Arthur bea 320x240.jpg. 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) 04:30, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:BeaArthur B25064 150x200.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:BeaArthur B25064 150x200.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. 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:Non-free content, 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 the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 10:58, 9 March 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rossrs (talk) 10:58, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

What is going on here? You can't just pick any old image and upload it to Wikipedia. This is the third unfree image you've uploaded of Bea Arthur this month, and it must stop. Please read through the Wikipedia policies regarding copyright. Please also read Wikipedia:Tendentious editing. You're welcome to participate here if you follow the rules, but you're making no attempt at all. Let's get one thing very clear, under no circumstances will a free image be removed and replaced with an unfree image. It is against one of the very core tenets of Wikipedia which is that it operates and promote a FREE licence. Rossrs (talk) 10:58, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

You have been accused of sockpuppetry. Please refer to Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/Patkirkwoood for evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with notes for the suspect before editing the evidence page. Carom (talk) 01:48, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Jane Boulton[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Jane Boulton requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, 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. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

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 (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
