Licensing tag needed for Image:Randy Graff.jpg[edit]

As I was doing a few quick touch-ups on your new Randy Graff article, I noticed the picture attached doesn't have a licensing agreement selected (it was an option bar at the bottom of the screen where you uploaded the photo). You will want to add one into the image's page (you can click on it to go to its page): Randy Graff.jpg, otherwise one of the many automated bots that look for potential copyright violations will automatically delete it. If it's your own photo, I suggest either copy/pasting one of the following tags:

  • {{GFDL-self}} -- GNU Free Documentation License (it means you release the photo completely into the public domain)
  • {{cc-by-sa-2.5}} -- Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike. (this version permits free use, including commercial use; but requires that you be attributed as the creator; and requires that any derivative creator or redistributor of your work use the same license)

I use the latter when I upload my photos. Take care of the licensing immediately. Happy editting! Bobak 03:24, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

I noticed the same for the Wagner College seal you uploaded, but I've gone ahead and thrown a licensing tag on that one. Bobak 03:28, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

Hello:[edit]

Hi I'm a new Wikipedian from Natick, Mass... just popped in to say hello to my Wiki neighbor:"

Flag of Massachusetts.svg This user is from Massachusetts.

Flag of Massachusetts.svg Flag of the United States.svg 20px Merlinus (talk)

  • Hi I Am Marc:

I was recently married to my lovely wife; We have lived together for several years already...

  • We love cats (3 currently own us)... Jeffy(15), Echo(6) & Gizmo(3). All sleep with us in the big bed and no room to move an inch.
  • I was Disabled in a 1993 (Coma)/ and am very slowly recovering. It's tough going out sometimes, though with friends I still do. I have a few supportive friends.
  • I am an "Unenrolled voter." Democrat/ Republicans, I don't care, whoever serves makes my life better in the long run I vote for!
  • Avid reader. Has collection of many hundreds of rare books. Especially Science Fiction and Fantasy.
  • Avid Music collector (2,500 albums)...mostly bootlegs...mostly rare bootlegs...Stones, Kinks, Clapton, Beatles. and solos!

I am what I am I'm strongly opinionated about disabled peoples' rights and jobs for American citizens who have trouble finding minimum wage jobs in my state today and support Universal health care, I would be dead if I did not have it. I am an idiot about Internet social skills. I hope that the Immigration Reform bill will protect disabled citizens who wish to work like myself first before considering allowing new people to come here. I was searching for an internet forum to be my outlet to express my needs, but found that Wikipedia is not best suited for that. I'm brushing up on Wikipedia's rules of conduct, and slowly starting to begin contributing again.


Current book and CD I own hundreds of rare books

  • Current Book Jack Whyte: "Uther"
  • Current CD Faves:
    • Warren Zevon... "Life'll Kill Ya"
    • Howlin' Wolf: "Greatest Hits"

Fair use rationale for Image:CrosleyField1970.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:CrosleyField1970.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:Fox-Soccer-Channel.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Fox-Soccer-Channel.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, then 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, then 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-no-disclaimers}} 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 the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 21:47, 11 May 2007 (UTC).

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:IAM ecole du micro dargent.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:IAM ecole du micro dargent.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid.

Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

Cincinnati ballparks[edit]

I'm wondering where you found this picture. I'm asking because it does not appear to be the Cincinnati ballpark at any time of its history, although I could be wrong. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 05:31, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Tinker Field original interior.jpg

Also this one:

PalceotFans.jpg

Were those the exact names, or did you change them? I want to see if I can find the originals, in case the deletionists come knocking. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 22:39, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

No, the "League park cincy" is almost certainly not Cincinnati's League Park. The first park in 1884 was kind of squared off, not round. The one in 1894 was much bigger. Also, note the trees. This looks rural. Wherever you found it, I am almost certain it was mis-labeled. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 22:27, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:CrosleyField1968.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:CrosleyField1968.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.

File permission problem with File:Randy Graff.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Randy Graff.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the GFDL or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

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, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. 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 provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Files lacking evidence of permission 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. Dvdplr (talk) 13:30, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
