the page template works fine. Your article is already on the list of articles we are editing here: Wikipedia:School and university projects/Shaping the Modern World SP2010/Paper template. If you lose this link, you can get to our class pages through my user page, under shaping the modern world. Auntieruth55 (talk) 20:34, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Physicochemical kinetics book cover.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Physicochemical kinetics book cover.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file 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 file 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 'file' 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 "File" 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.  fetchcomms 02:31, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

You need to add a fair use rationale for every copyrighted book cover you uploaded.  fetchcomms 02:32, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
This is you adding a fair use rationale, what you had earlier was not a valid rationale, it does not say why it falls under fair use or what article it was for. So you did not have real rationales before today. Also, I did not say the current one is inadequate, but the template is more widely used and is easier. And I leave talkback notices, you will always get the orange bar when I do that.  fetchcomms 22:16, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
They seem fine. The main things are what article, what it is used for, and why it cannot be replaced. fetchcomms 22:29, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

IUPAC Peer Review[edit]

I will be glad to review it, but it may take me a few days, thanks for asking. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 00:17, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

I am guessing you have not yet seen my comments at Wikipedia:Peer review/International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry/archive1. Hope they are helpful, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 14:46, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
I made more comments at the peer review. Please ask if you have more questions, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 20:33, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and book covers[edit]

A large number of fair use images were place on this article in a table regarding the books. I'm quite sorry, but our guidelines on this usage located at WP:NFLISTS does not support this type of usage of fair use images. As a result, I've removed the cover images, and tagged what images were orphaned (not used in any articles) in this process. As orphaned images, they are subject to deletion in a few days. If you have questions, let me know. Thanks, --Hammersoft (talk) 20:53, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

  • The guideline I noted says "Barring the above, images that are used only to visually identify elements in the article should be used as sparingly as possible." Adding 20 some images to the article is unnecessary, and violates minimal use policy at WP:NFCC #3a. The guideline also says "The use of non-free images arranged in a gallery or tabular format is usually unacceptable". We do not include book covers in bibliographies, discographies, videographies, etc. The International_Union_of_Pure_and_Applied_Chemistry#Publications is a bibliography. It's no different than William Harrison Ainsworth bibliography, Jorge Luis Borges bibliography, Donald Barthelme bibliography or any other bibliography here. That it is a section of an article makes no difference. Further, that sub articles for each of these books does not exist, therefore we need to host the images on this article is not an argument that has been sustained in prior debates on the subject. The general practice is that if (X) is notable enough (see Wikipedia:Notability (books)) to have its own article, then it is certainly notable enough to have a cover of the book on that article. In that vein, Placing 20 covers on an aggregate article violates WP:NFCC #8. --Hammersoft (talk) 18:13, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

I've placed orphaned tags on most of the book covers as they are no longer used in any articles. This makes them subject to deletion in seven days unless they are used in an article. Please do not remove these tags unless they become used in an article. Thank you, --Hammersoft (talk) 12:40, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
