I've reverted your recent edits here. The information you added regarding a "celebrity stalk" by Ross Noble isn't overly encyclopedic. Perhaps in Mr Nobles' article, but not this one. -- Longhair 22:58, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Fair enough. I wasn't really sure about them, I thought it might be a nice aside. Tyrhinis 20:21, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Book cover use[edit]

Hi. I've been at WP for a little while but never really done anything substantial. My first big edit was creating & writing the article on 9tail Fox, which is an sf novel. Not long ago, some kind user added a whole template box thingy to it (What're those things called? top right of the article) and I thought I'd have a go at filling it it, but got stuck on the "image of cover" bit.

I've read WP:FU, and it says low-res book covers are allowed but equally the Upload page specifically says not to upload an image from the Web. My question is: do I have to go rent the book from my library and scan in the cover to be able to upload it as {{book cover}}, or can I just use a reasonably-sized pic from Google Images? Please response on my talk page or at 9tail Fox, I'll never remember to check back here. Thanks for reading this! Tyrhinis 20:20, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

As it says on the Upload page, "Most images on the internet are copyrighted and are not appropriate for uploading to Wikipedia." In this case, the book cover is copyrighted, and any image of the cover is copyrighted by the artist or publisher, but you should be able to upload the image under fair use. Just tag it with {{book cover}} and post a link back to the source. — TheKMantalk 20:48, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
I've just replaced your image with one that I'd uploaded (mainly because I'd not checked to see if there was already an image there; my bad, sorry!). There's a not-quite-policy of using images from Amazon.com; see Wikipedia:Images from Amazon.com for more details. Good work on the article, though; JCG is one of my favourite authors atm. — OwenBlacker 17:33, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Jon Courtenay Grimwood[edit]

I kinda wanna re-read reMix and redRobe, as well as the Arabesk trilogy, so I'm happy to work on those (after you have done so, if you prefer). But yeah, that sounds like a deal to me.

I'm spending less time on here than I used to, so I might take a while, but I do monitor the RSS feed of my User talk page, so leave me a message if you need… — OwenBlacker 12:05, 28 September 2006 (UTC)


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

Thanks for uploading Image:Ignoto.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 (talk) 22:46, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
