Hockey uniform templates[edit]

Hi, THR. You did a great job with the File:AHA-Uniform-RIT.png; do you know if there's a blank template somewhere for the creation of similar uniform images? Powers T 16:31, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. I'm hoping to complete all the men's NCAA Division I teams in the next couple months. I just used an existing image of an NHL team uniform for my template, but I did find this: File:Hockey sweater blank template.png. Two Hearted River (paddle / fish) 16:42, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Shattuck-St. Marys[edit]

Just a quick question on this change. I know that the age range for midget hockey is different in the United States than in Canada, but in both countries, I am rather certain that midget aged players are too young to be eligible for the NHL draft. Also, given the NHL itself says these players appeared in MSHS hockey, I am reverting the change to the draft articles. Resolute 20:11, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Fair enough. Thanks for the info. Resolute 22:46, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Niagara purple[edit]

Hello Two Hearted River. You are right: There is not an official conversion chart approved by Pantone Inc., and, therefore, the hexidecimal values are similar to the official printed Pantone color chart but not exactly the same. Niagara university's official color and Purple Eagles athletic color is Pantone PMS 268. I just checked a converter program (CorelDraw X3) and hex. values should be: 521C78. Another tool is found here with result 4F2170 (used on wikipedia's article Niagara Purple Eagles men's ice hockey). Same result here. Unfortunatley, and I don't know why, the purple eagles official website has changed this year to a blue shade as website background, while the school's official website has not. I'd recommend using #4F2170 for PMS 268, but it's just my opinion. Best regards--Banderas (talk) 19:55, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Good question !. The new ice hockey jerseys are closer to blue rather than purple (just like the website), while other purple eagles teams still use purple, and the official color has not changed ! I think you do the right thing by drawing the uniforms as they are (blueish), while the article's bars stay PMS 268, the official color. I guess they got a new person taking decisions over there who doesn't like purple and prefers blue (either that or he has viewing problems).--Banderas (talk) 18:52, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Grateful Dead album articles[edit]

Greetings, Two Hearted River. Thanks for your recent edits on some Grateful Dead album articles. Besides some cleanup, you're doing a great job of finding better album cover images. Here are a couple of requests. (1) When you upload a better album cover image, please update the fair use rationale on the image page, to reflect the source of the new image -- usually but not necessarily the URL of a web site. (2) If any of the album infoboxes have the artist as "The Grateful Dead", please change that to "Grateful Dead", the official name of the group and the value used in most of the Grateful Dead album articles, of which there are quite a few. Again, thanks, and keep up the good work. (If you reply here I will see what you say.) Mudwater (Talk) 01:42, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

In one of the articles, I saw in the infobox "Studio album by the Grateful Dead", which seemed to me the best way to display it (more accurate than "Studio album by The Grateful Dead" and without the clunkiness of "Studio album by Grateful Dead"). Virtually every time the band's name appears in prose, "the" precedes it, so why not in the infobox? Two Hearted River (paddle / fish) 03:27, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm all for "Studio album by Grateful Dead". The infobox contains summary information, not prose. And like I said, "Grateful Dead" is the official name of the band, plus that's the way it is in the infobox of most of the Grateful Dead album articles. Mudwater (Talk) 04:02, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
It contains summary information rendered in prose (i.e. the ordinary language people use in speaking or writing – "Studio album by the Grateful Dead" and not "Album type: studio; Artist: Grateful Dead"). That "the" is not capitalized tells the reader it's not part of the band name. And we both know it doesn't matter how it's done on other Grateful Dead album articles – if the consensus is to change it, we'll apply the changes everywhere they're applicable.

North Dakota State University Seal[edit]

Hello, I was wondering if there is a reason you changed the NDSU seal from the official full color seal to a black and white seal? thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.87.73.30 (talk) 06:39, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

I replaced the color version because it was 1) outdated, as evidenced by the "1890-1990" near the top, and 2) a jpg image and not the preferred svg format. If I come across a usable color version of the current seal, I'll replace the b&w. Two Hearted River (paddle / fish) 12:41, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

I have seen your replies and the latest version of the article. My opposition to FA promotion stands based on criteria 1a. Also, given that your attempts to address reviewers' concerns with as little work as possible has led to your introducing sourcing errors, I think all of your references need to be scrutinized if we could ever get past 1a. Two Hearted River (paddle / fish) 20:25, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
They are fine. Unless you can give me examples, then you have nothing to back up that reasoning. And I'm highly offended by your "attempts to address reviewers' concerns with as little work as possible" comment. AaronYou Da One 20:30, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
The nomination has failed five times already, so forgive me for being unmoved by your taking offense. Here's an example of an unsupported claim: that "Na na na c'mon" is the hook. Reference [11] doesn't support it, so it's original research at the moment. Two Hearted River (paddle / fish) 20:57, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Do you think 5 FACs is a lack of work? I've made some 800+ edits to the article, that's hard a lack of work. AaronYou Da One 20:59, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Your comments are the most ridiculous ones I have ever seen on music-related articles. Sorry but someone had to tell you this. You know nothing about music and yet you do everything to come across as the "Mr. Know It All About Music". One day you might see Barack Obama on the streets; you will approach him and ask, "What proof do you have that you are Barack Obama?" He will then show you his ID and you will say, "Well, you could have falsified it".

I am telling you for the last time. Leave me alone. I beg you. Stop following everything I do. Please. Jivesh1205 (Talk) 19:27, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

While the conflict of interest is unfortunate, I do feel the source concerns you've raised are of consideration. I see Jivesh has retrieved interest in resolving those and your other comments, so I hope you can work with him and even support the promotion in due course. In any case, I do hope I haven't overstepped any bounds in my response on the FAC, and wish the both of you good luck Auree 06:35, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you Auree. Jivesh1205 (Talk) 07:58, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Appeal to reason[edit]

Hello, I noticed that you had an recent encounter with a certain user who insists on getting his way despite often being proven wrong and that you were successful in achieving the correct outcome.

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Northern_Illinois_University&action=history

I implore you to please review this page and correct the biased slant of this user. He is an ISU alumn/fan posing as an NIU alum in order to purposefully and maliciously vandalize the NIU page.

Here is an excerpt of a previous discussion: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:EdJohnston/Archive_24#NIU)

The most damning evidence is that I caught this user in a direct contradiction and detailed it in the linked/attached message where he agrees that there should only be one or two rankings in the section but he insists on listing a "ranking" in the ACADEMICS section that is obviously NOT an Academic Ranking.

A review of his history will show that he is condescending and attempts to deflect from the actual topic being discussed when he is wrong and simply just outlasts those of us who have actual things to do with our time. He portrays himself as someone whose expertise shouldn't be challenged and tries to belittle you if you disagree instead of having a true exchange. He attempted this with me, assuming that he is somehow more qualified to edit the article than I, when I was a professional EDITOR before and I am sure he has never been one, other than in his warped mind.

I write now because I noticed that someone else recently tried to erase his obvious biased slant from the article and he's back at it again. He is the reason why Wikipedia is losing the battle of credibility.

Thank you.

EXCERPT:


           The ISU fanatical booster user (HuskyHuskie) has done it again and put back his biased language. Formula = neutral statement (comma) biased editorial. Per WP:BOOSTER (an essay), the rankings should be presented neutrally and without undue weight.
           Undue Weight - i.e. "NIU is ranked as a National University by the U.S. News & World Report, where it typically places in the fourth quartile". This entire sentence should be deleted and the section should begin at the next sentence with "In the most recent..."
           The Forbes "rankings" are not academic rankings (as I've stated in previous entries regarding this case, they are "value rankings" that take into account cost of total attendance at the schools and have no direct correlation to the value of education provided by the school) and should be stricken, but if they are allowed the biased editorializing needs to go. Per WP:BOOSTER (an essay), the rankings should be presented neutrally and without undue weight.
           Undue Weight - i.e. "Forbes magazine, which does not separate small liberal arts colleges from large universities in its rankings, places NIU as #610 of 650 colleges and universities on its list, the lowest ranking assigned by Forbes to any public college in Illinois". - "which does not separate small liberal arts colleges from large universities in its rankings" this is interjected editorial meant to give legitimacy to these non-rankings. - "of 650 colleges and universities on its list, the lowest ranking assigned by Forbes to any public college in Illinois." Again this is ALL undue weight trying to frame the numerical ranking towards the User's biased slant. This type of editorial is missing from the other rankings, why is this the only "ranking" that is presented with undue weight, which tries to facilitate the potential for it to be interpreted as negative.
           If the user feels so strongly about the Forbes listings that he feels the need to include them here and even punch them up with his undue editorial, then why has he not included these Forbes listing in the other University pages that he contributes to, namely ISU and U of I? Also, if he is so inclined to keep the IL Academic world so current, than why have the ISU rankings not been updated to reflect the new USNWR rankings that shows ISU dropping 6 slots? Could it be that this doesn't weigh towards his bias and therefore gets conveniently overlooked? As I've expressed previously, this user has an agenda that is opposite of what he is portraying in order to better disguise his obvious bias.
           To equate what I did (edit a biased article to a neutral tone) with what the other user is doing (deliberately and repeatedly editing with a biased agenda) is ridiculous. Keep an eye on future edits to this article, I am sure you will see users who have never even heard of the University chime in (it probably has already started). I assure you that these "random" editors are the other user's acquaintances.
           Please UNDO his undue weight and BLOCK him from further edits to the "Northern Illinois University" page. Thank you. Tigerwiki2 (talk) 13:56, 31 October 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tigerwiki2 (talk • contribs) 12:34, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
       "And inquiring minds want to know why a brand new editor would refer to the Manual of Style in his fourth edit, and know how to use the 3RR noticeboard. EdJohnston (talk) 05:15, 31 October 2011 (UTC)"
       -"And inquiring minds want to know why a brand new editor would refer to the Manual of Style in his fourth edit" - what is befuddling about this?
       -"and know how to use the 3RR noticeboard" - I was made aware of it by the other user or subsequent interactions that came when I tried to initially report him. Evidently, I posted in the wrong area, because I didn't know (still don't) about the wikipedia's procedures. If you cannot be impartial, how do I go about getting an administrator who can be to look at this case?

           User HuskyHuskie has user Moxy to edit war with him. I am sure this is against the rules. PLEASE BLOCK both of them and address my earlier comments regarding the undue weighted language used by the first user AND/OR refer me to an impartial administrator who can handle this situation in a more appropriate manner. Tigerwiki2 (talk) 15:22, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
           TigerWiki2, I'm leaving you a message here since you don't seem to be responding to the ones on your talk page. Stop asking for other editors to be blocked and start discussing your edits on the article's talk page. Dayewalker (talk) 15:26, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Bottom Line: Neutrality. I am neutral in my edits the user: HuskyHuskie is not. Please review the history.

All ”rankings” are BS. If it were up to me, I’d jettison the whole section. But at the very least the Forbes listings should be done away with. I cannot state this any more clearly: these are NOT ACADEMIC RANKINGS.

From Wikipedia: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/College_and_university_rankings#Forbes_College_rankings)

"Forbes College rankings

In 2008, Forbes.com began publishing an annual list, prepared by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity[96] of "America's Best Colleges".[97] The Forbes rankings use the list of alumni published in Who's Who in America, student evaluations from RateMyProfessors.com, self-reported salaries of alumni from PayScale, four-year graduation rates, numbers of students and faculty receiving "nationally competitive awards," and four-year accumulated student debt to calculate the rankings.[98] The list emphasizes tuition costs, which boosts the ratings of the zero-cost United States Service academies. It disregards subjective measures such as public reputation, which causes some Ivy League colleges to score lower than in other lists."

How is this an Academic measure? Answer: It is NOT.

From the NIU Discussion page: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Northern_Illinois_University#Which_rankings.3F)

"As an unbiased editor with no connection to NIU, might I suggest a compromise? Most schools include some type of ranking/recognition in the lead. But it's important to just keep it to one or two of the recognitions you think are the most prestigious. In my opinion, I really like the Carnegie Foundation and the Universities Research Association/Fermi info as they show NIU's relevance in academia while adding great forks to other articles. The other rankings such as being a "National University" and misc rankings, I think, belong in the ranking section below. Hope this helps. -- Iksnyrk (talk) 21:45, 9 May 2011 (UTC)"

Here the other user agrees with this statement recommending one or two listed rankings: “Thank you, Iksnyrk, for your neutral suggestion. I must first of all say that I agree that such listings of rankings be kept to a minimum.”

From this same section: It seems that the other user and I agree on the point that the USNWR should not be included but since they are the “granddaddy of all rankings” we acquiesce to them being included.

Also from this same section: “Hey, I'll take that "research" ranking and include it in the article, because it's both prestigious and significant.”

The user acknowledges the significance of research rankings. Those would be the WM rankings.

This brings the total of listed rankings to the earlier agreed upon two.

Going from the discussion page, consensus seems to have been reached with a rankings list that includes the USNWR and WM rankings; however, the other user insists on continuously injecting the non-academic Forbes rankings in the “Academic Rankings” section for no comprehensible reason other than he is just being extremely obstinate and parochial.

Again, PLEASE UNDO the biased and superfluous Forbes "rankings" from the "Academic Rankings" section and PLEASE BLOCK user: HuskyHuskie from the Northern Illinois University page. Tigerwiki2 (talk) 18:24, 31 October 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tigerwiki2 (talkcontribs)

I go to this school so I am very sad at this state of the article, but not sure how to really tackle this. User:Zscout370 (Return Fire) 05:06, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Everything That Happens Will Happen Today/archive4[edit]

Please take a look As you can see, I've done this three times before and I really want it to pass now and you helped promote it before. In previous attempts, it didn't because of lack of interest--do you know how I can get anyone else involved to say yay or nay? Thanks. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:03, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Excellent Even negative feedback is appreciated. As you can see, it's been peer reviewed once and still not passed FA. I'm willing to believe that it's not featured quality at the moment, but I would hope that anyone else can appreciate that it's close and that I have put forth a lot of effort in getting it there--I'm willing to do what it takes. If you want to put the FA on hold for peer review, I'll happily amend the article as you see fit. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:03, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
The article is close, and I'm confident we can get it there. I suspect the nomination will just be closed and you'll have to renominate, but no matter. You'll start the next one with a support vote right off the bat. Two Hearted River (paddle / fish) 22:44, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
Peer review Wikipedia:Peer review/Everything That Happens Will Happen Today/archive2. Please have at it. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:32, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

RE Missing My Baby at FAC[edit]

The article just received a copy-edit by User:Stfg. Please revisit article to see if the prose has now been satisfied. Best, Jonatalk to me 16:57, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Hello, Two Hearted River. I fixed some things in the prose and asked what other issues you see. My question is here. Do you plan to reply? It would be a great help if you could be more specific about whatever problems you see in the prose. Regards, --Stfg (talk) 10:51, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
I've seen your reply there declining further discussion. Yes, the FAC may fail for the reasons you indicate. But you criticised the prose and said "I suggest finding another set of eyes to go over the text", implying you judge that I am unable to address the issues. You don't know me well enough to make that judgement. Seems to me that you made a generic criticism that you weren't prepared to back up with specifics. Seems to me that if you want to criticise people's work, you should be able to back it up. --Stfg (talk) 14:23, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Copeland, Cray and Collins - Showdown! album cover.jpeg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

Replaceable fair use File:ECAC-Uniform-Harvard.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:ECAC-Uniform-Harvard.png. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

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

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 14:17, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Colorado College wordmark.svg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Colorado College wordmark.svg. 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, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment Centre[edit]

Good Article Recruitment - Completion Award.png
Hello! Now, some of you might have already received a similar message a little while ago regarding the Recruitment Centre, so if you have, there is no need to read the rest of this. This message is directed to users who have reviewed over 15 Good article nominations and are not part of WikiProject Good articles (the first message I sent out went to only WikiProject members).

So for those who haven't heard about the Recruitment Centre yet, you may be wondering why there is a Good article icon with a bunch of stars around it (to the right). The answer? WikiProject Good articles will be launching a Recruitment Centre very soon! The centre will allow all users to be taught how to review Good article nominations by experts just like you! However, in order for the Recruitment Centre to open in the first place, we need some volunteers:

  • Recruiters: The main task of a recruiter is to teach users that have never reviewed a Good article nomination how to review one. To become a recruiter, all you have to do is meet this criteria. If we don't get at least 5-10 recruiters to start off with (at the time this message was sent out, 2 recruiters have volunteered), the Recruitment Centre will not open. If interested, make sure you meet the criteria, read the process and add your name to the list of recruiters. (One of the great things about being a recruiter is that there is no set requirement of what must be taught and when. Instead, all the content found in the process section is a guideline of the main points that should be addressed during a recruitment session...you can also take an entire different approach if you wish!) If you think you will not have the time to recruit any users at this time but are still interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still add your name to the list of recruiters but just fill in the "Status" parameter with "Not Available".
  • Co-Director: The current Director for the centre is me (Dom497). Another user that would be willing to help with some of the tasks would be helpful. Tasks include making sure recruiters are doing what they should be (teaching!), making sure all recruitments are archived correctly, updating pages as needed, answering any questions, and distributing the feedback form. If interested, please contact me (Dom497).
  • Nominators, please read this: If you are not interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still help. In some cases a nominator may have an issue with an "inexperienced" editor (the recruitee) reviewing one of their nominations. To minimize the chances of this happening, if you are fine with a recruitee reviewing one of your nominations under the supervision of the recruiter, please add your name to the list at the bottom of this page. By adding your name to this list, chances are that your nomination will be reviewed more quickly as the recruitee will be asked to choose a nomination from the list of nominators that are OK with them reviewing the article.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing this program bring new reviewers to the Good article community and all the positive things it will bring along.

A message will be sent out to all recruiters regarding the date when the Recruitment Centre will open when it is determined. The message will also contain some further details to clarify things that may be a bit confusing.--Dom497 (talk)

Hi Two Hearted River[edit]

In case you didn't know, I have nominated "S&M" for FAC once again. It is the tenth nomination. I have collaborated with the co-nominator on the article, and it has been through a Peer Review, of which several people who are experienced with the process gave help. As you opposed my seventh nomination, I would appreciate it if you would re-read the article and give your opinion on how you feel about the article now over at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/S&M (song)/archive10. Thank you.  — AARONTALK 10:25, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Lateralus and 10,000 Days revisions[edit]

Hi, I'm sorry we're going back and forth doing these album revisions. With Lateralus, my thought was for the main album cover on the article (the one with the band logo) to represent the artwork of the outer album packaging without it resembling the actual, transparent physical packaging, and therefore the addition of the other album cover (the inner album cover depicting the anatomical figure) would depict the inner album art underneath the transparent physical album packaging. In so doing, both album covers would be shown clearly, instead of the transparent album cover you keep restoring. As with 10,000 Days, the goal of my changes was to uplaod a better image of the album artwork itself, without the interference of the stereoscopic lenses of the actual physical packaging. I think the album covers of both albums should solely be depicted for their artwork rather than the actual physical packaging. In conclusion, I do believe my changes were warranted. Please consider them before revising them again. Thank you. Treeoflife23 t | c 06:50, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Re: Lateralus – What is the compelling reason to present an opaque version of the outer slipcase and a second non-free image of the booklet? (Interestingly, what you call the "inner album cover artwork" is every partially-transparent page of the booklet overlaid, and not just the first page. It's exactly the same way my version of the album cover shows what one actually sees when looking at the cover.) The purpose of a cover image is to help the reader identify the album. If I'm perusing a friend's CD collection looking for this album, the image that is more helpful to me is my version of the cover.
Re: 10,000 Days – You call your version of the cover "the album artwork itself". Whatever work of art the cover incorporates is not necessarily the album cover. I'm holding the album in my hands, and what I'm seeing looks exactly like the image I uploaded, and that's in line with our reason for displaying album covers. We should not be in the business of trying to discern from the album package what portion constitutes the real cover. It's original research to do so.

Re: If it makes you that happy, I'll discontinue undoing your revisions. Though I still believe that my revisions were warranted despite your biased argument. I guess smug, pompous, pretentious, know-it-all wikipedia fascism is just the way of the administrators nowadays. Always having to have it your way. Enjoy savoring your small, insignificant victory. Have a nice day. Treeoflife23 t | c 08:55, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:AHA-Uniform-UConn.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:AHA-Uniform-UConn.png. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 14:53, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
