Wikipedia:Files for discussion

Jump to: navigation, search

Files for discussion (FfD) is for listing images and other media files which are unneeded or have either free content or non-free content usage concerns. Files that have been listed here for more than 7 days are eligible for either deletion or removal from pages if either a consensus to do so has been reached or no objections to deletion or removal have been raised. To quote the non-free content criteria, "it is the duty of users seeking to include or retain content to provide a valid rationale; those seeking to remove or delete it are not required to show that one cannot be created." For undeletion requests, first contact the administrator who deleted the file. If you are unable to resolve the issue with that administrator, the matter should be brought to deletion review.

Examples of what files you may request for deletion or change here:

  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.
  • Orphan – The file is not used on any pages in Wikipedia.
  • Unencyclopedic – The file doesn't seem likely to be useful in any Wikimedia project.
  • Low quality – The file is of an extremely low resolution, distorted, or has other physical image quality concerns.
  • Copyright violation – The file might be used in violation of copyright.
  • Possibly unfree – The file is tagged with a freeness claim, but may actually be eligible for copyright in the United States.
  • NFCC violation – The file is used under a claim of fair use but does not meet the requirements.
  • NFCC applied to free image – The file is used under a claim of fair use, but the file is either too simple, or is an image which has been wrongly labeled given evidence presented on the file description page.

If you have questions if something should be deleted, consider asking at Media Copyright Questions.

What not to list here[edit]

  1. For concerns not listed below, if a deletion is uncontroversial, do not use this page. Instead tag a file with {{subst:prod}}. However, if the template is removed, please do not reinsert it; list the file for deletion then.
  2. For speedy deletion candidates as well, do not use this page; instead use one of the speedy deletion templates. See the criteria for speedy deletion. These are: duplicates (where both files are on Wikipedia), thumbnails, broken files, non-existent files, non-commercial, "by permission" files and files which are not an image, sound file or video clip and have no encyclopedic use.
  3. Files that have no source, have an unknown copyright, are unused or replaceable non-free, or are non-free without rationale can be marked so that they will be deleted after a week, and should not be listed on this page. Add one of the following to the file page:
    1. {{subst:nsd}} if a file has no source indicated
    2. {{subst:nld}} if a file has a source but no licensing information
    3. {{subst:orfud}} if a file has a non-free copyright tag but isn't used in any articles
    4. {{subst:rfu}} if a file has a non-free copyright tag but could be replaced by a free file
    5. {{subst:dfu|reason}} if a file has a non-free copyright tag but the rationale isn't sufficient or is disputed
    6. {{subst:nrd}} if a file has no non-free use rationale
  4. Redundant or duplicate files do not have to be listed here. Please use
    1. {{db-f1|Full name of file excluding the "File:" prefix}} for speedy deletion if the other file is on Wikipedia, not on Commons
    2. {{now commons|File:NEW FILENAME}} if the file now exists on Commons, or {{now commons}} for files with the same name on Commons. (Don't nominate protected images, they are usually locally uploaded and protected since they are used in an interface message or in a highly used template, thus they are high-risk.)
  5. For blatant copyright infringements, use speedy deletion by tagging the file {{db-f9}}
  6. If a file is listed as public domain or under a free license, but lacks verification of this (either by an OTRS ticket number or a notice on the source website), tag it as {{subst:npd}}.
  7. Files that are hosted on Wikimedia Commons cannot be deleted via this process. Please use the Commons deletion page instead.
  8. Description pages with no local file, even though they are in the file namespace, should not be listed here.
    1. Redirects should be treated as in any other namespace: if no speedy deletion criteria apply, they should be listed at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion.
    2. Local description pages with no associated file are speedy-deletable under criterion G8; use {{db-imagepage}}.
    3. Local description pages for files hosted on Commons are usually speedy-deletable under criterion F2 if there is no content relevant to Wikipedia; use {{db-fpcfail}}.
    4. Any other local description pages for files hosted on Commons should be listed at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion.
  9. If a file is appropriately licensed and could be usable elsewhere, consider copying it to the Wikimedia Commons instead of listing it for deletion. Once copied to the Commons, it is eligible for speedy deletion per criterion 8 for files.
  10. If you are the uploader of the image, tag it with {{db-author}}.

Instructions for listing files for discussion

To list a file:

1
Edit the file page.

Add {{ffd|log=2017 June 23}} to the file page.

2
Create its FfD subsection.

Follow this edit link and list the file using {{subst:ffd2|File_name.ext|Uploader= |Reason= }} ~~~~

Leave the subject heading blank.

If the file has been replaced by another file, name the file that replaced it in your reason for deletion. Refer below for a list of other common reasons.

For listing additional files with the same reason, edit the first file section and use {{subst:ffd2a|File_name.ext |Uploader= }} for each additional file. Also, add {{ffd|log=2017 June 23}} to the top of the file page of each file other than the first one nominated.

3
Give due notice.

Inform the uploader by adding a message to their talk page using {{subst:fdw|File_name.ext}}

  • Remember to replace "File_name.ext" with the name of the image or media
  • For multiple images by the same user, use {{subst:fdw-multi|First_file.ext |Second_file.ext |Third_file.ext}} ~~~~ (can handle up to 26)

If the image is in use, also consider adding {{ffdc|File_name.ext|log=2017 June 23}} to the caption(s), or adding a notice to the article talk pages. Consider also notifying relevant WikiProjects of the discussion.

State the reasons why the file should be deleted, removed, or altered. Also, state what specific action should be taken, preferably in bold text; this allows discussion participants and closers to better understand the purpose of the nomination. Some examples of nomination statements include:

  • Delete. Orphaned with no foreseeable encyclopedic usage.
  • Delete. Replaced by File:FILE2.
  • Free (public domain) file may actually be eligible for copyright in the United States. This photograph was actually first published in 1920, not 1926.
  • Remove from ARTICLE1 and ARTICLE2. The file only meets WP:NFCC#8 with its use in ARTICLE3.
  • Non-free file may actually be free. This logo does not seem to meet the threshold of originality to be eligible for copyright in the United States and should actually be tagged free using {{PD-logo}}.


Some common reasons for deletion or removal from pages are:

  • Obsolete - The file has been replaced by a better version. Indicate the new file name
  • Orphan - The file is not used on any pages in Wikipedia. (If the file is only available under "fair use", please use {{subst:orfud}} instead). Please consider moving "good" free licensed files to Commons rather than outright deleting them, other projects may find a use for them even if we have none; you can also apply {{Copy to Wikimedia Commons}}.
  • Unencyclopedic - The file doesn't seem likely to be useful in this encyclopedia (or for any Wikimedia project). Images used on userpages should generally not be nominated on this basis alone unless the user is violating the Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not policy by using Wikipedia to host excessive amounts unencyclopedic material (most commonly private photos).
  • Low quality - The image is of an extremely low resolution, distorted, or has other physical image quality concerns.
  • Copyright violation - The file might be used in violation of copyright.
  • Possibly unfree file - The file marked as free may actually be non-free. If the file is determined to be non-free, then it will be subject to the non-free content criteria in order to remain on Wikipedia.
  • Non-free file issues - The non-free file may not meet all requirements outlined in the non-free file use policy, or may not be necessary to retain on Wikipedia or specific articles due to either free alternatives or better non-free alternative(s) existing.
  • File marked as non-free may actually be free - The file is marked non-free, but may actually be free content. (Example: A logo may not eligible for copyright alone because it is not original enough, and thus the logo is considered to be in the public domain.)

These are not the only "valid" reasons to discuss a file. Any properly explained reason can be used. The above list comprises the most common and uncontroversial ones.

If you remove a file from an article, list the article from which you removed it so there can be community review of whether the file should be deleted. This is necessary because file pages do not remember the articles on which the file were previously used.

Instructions for discussion participation[edit]

In responding to the deletion nomination, consider adding your post in the format
* '''View''' - Reasoning ... -- ~~~~
where "Delete", "Keep", "Comment", or something else may replace "View". In posting their reasoning, many editors use abbreviations and cite to the following:

Remember that polling is not a substitute for discussion. Wikipedia's primary method of determining consensus is through editing and discussion, not voting. Although editors occasionally use straw polls in an attempt to test for consensus, polls or surveys sometimes impede rather than assist discussion. They should be used with caution, and are no more binding than any other consensus decision.

Also remember that if you believe that an image is potentially useful for other projects and should be moved to Wikimedia Commons, in lieu of responding '''Move to Commons''', you can move it there yourself. See Wikipedia:Moving files to the Commons for instructions.

Instructions for closing discussions[edit]

Nominations should be processed for closing after being listed for 7 days following the steps here.

Old discussions[edit]

The following discussions are more than 7 days old and are pending processing by an administrator:

For older nominations, see the archives.

File:Premier Robert Stanfield.jpg[edit]

File:Premier Robert Stanfield.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by 117Avenue (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Non-free image of a deceased person being used in Canadian federal election, 1974 and Robert Stanfield. The non-free use in the article about Stanfield himself seems fine per item 10 of WP:NFCI because non-free images of deceased persons are generally considered OK when they are used as the primary means of identification. However, the consensus etablished about such image use in articles about individual elections has in previous FFD discussions generally has been that this type of usage is not allowed just for visual identification purposes in the infobox. Moreover, the non-free use rationale provided for the election article this edit claims that the file is needed " for visual identification of the person in question, at the top of his/her biographical article" which is not the case at all. Suggest keep for the article about Stanfield and remove from the election article. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:36, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Comment: The editor who added the non-free use rationale for the election article has reverted their edit and also removed the file, so that it is now only being used in the Stanfield article. This discussion can probably be closed now unless anyone has any further comments. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:57, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep. You don't need to delete a non-free file, just because it is being used incorrectly. 117Avenue (talk) 02:46, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
    • I didn't suggest that the file be deleted. I only suggested it be removed from the election article. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:06, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

File:Makassar Toll road construction.jpg[edit]

File:Makassar Toll road construction.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by ToolWiki23 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Uploader is claiming to be the copyright holder but this appears to have been copied from https://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berkas:Jalan_tol_Makassar.jpg which seems to be claimed as a fair use image there based on google translate. The stated original source link from the fair use template is 404 but its fairly clear that the copyright is not held by the uploader. Whpq (talk) 11:16, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

File:Garuda Indonesia Logo 1949-1969.png[edit]

File:Garuda Indonesia Logo 1949-1969.png (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by ToolWiki23 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Uploader is claiming to be the copyright holder but is obviously not true as this is a corporate logo. Conversion to fair use is not appropriate as this is a non-current logo being used in a gallery so it would fail WP:NFCC#8. Whpq (talk) 11:52, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

File:SFB Game logo.png[edit]

File:SFB Game logo.png (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Coin945 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

There is a Commons file of the same name and subject under this title. Not convinced that it might be copyrightable in the UK. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 15:04, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

File:Big Brother's Bit on the Side titles.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Lauren's World (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Non-free logo being used in List of Big Brother (UK) shows. It's removal would not be detrimental to the reader's understanding of the article. The logo is primarily decorative. Whpq (talk) 15:32, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

File:Love Island Aftersun.jpg[edit]

File:Love Island Aftersun.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by MystiqueDominique (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

This non-free title screen image is being used in a section of Love Island (2015 TV series) to identify a spin-off show. It's removal would not detract from a reader's understanding of the main article topic which is not about the spin-off show. Whpq (talk) 15:34, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Non-free book cover being used in a decorative manner in an article about the author. Non-free cover art is generally considered acceptable when used as the primary means of identification in a stand-alone article about the work in question, but (as explained in WP:NFC#cite_note-3) requires a much stronger justification for non-free use when use in other articles. This particular cover is not itself the subject of any sourced critical commentary within the article and is lacking the context required by WP:NFCC#8. I proposed the file for deletion, but it was deprodded with the edit sum "the book is the subject of three paragraphs of prose". The book is discussed, but the cover art is not and I feel it can be removed from the article without being detrimental to the reader's understanding of that article content in any way. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:39, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep as this could be considered fair use as the book is the subject of significant direct coverage in three paragraphs and the image is not used anywhere else. Atlantic306 (talk) 21:54, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
    • The concept of "fair use" is applied differently when it comes to non-free content on Wikipedia as explained in WP:ITSFAIRUSE. If the file was being used as the primary means of identification in a stand-alone article about the book itself, then this would be OK per WP:NFCC#1 and NFCC#8. However, I think actual sourced critical discussion of the book cover itself is needed for other articles. -- Marchjuly (talk) 22:45, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

Non-free logo for a TV series being used in the infoboxes of the main series article (Big Brother (U.S. TV series)) and also infoboxes of individual season articles (Big Brother 16 (U.S.), Big Brother 17 (U.S.), and Big Brother 18 (U.S.)). Generally, such logos are acceptable for the main series aritcle, but not in individual seasons because they are considered to be child entities of the series article per item 17 of WP:NFC#UUI. Individual season specific logos would be acceptable to use, but the default is not to use the series logo when season logos do not exist as explained in WP:TVIMAGE. Suggest keep for the main series article, but remove from the season articles. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:48, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

The thing is with this TV series CBS hasn't created a variation of the logo for this TV show since the sixteenth season. The logo is the same for each season that is broadcast on CBS there is no variation between the episodes per season. The show isn't released on DVD/Blu-Ray and online places like iTunes and Amazon video that have episodes you can purchase use clips from promos that CBS produces and some of the generic logos they use are used for multiple seasons as well. There is actually a different logo that can be used for the overall series if need be but again doesn't solve the fact that three seasons share the same logo. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 05:42, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Initially tagged with a disputed fair use rationale but removed by uploader. Re-listing for discussion as it appears to fail WP:NFCC#8.

While the injury shown in the photograph is discussed in the article, I don't see how having this image is essential to discussing the topic. If the point is to show how an eye-gouging injury appears (which isn't the topic here), then I don't see how a news photo is essential. This is a "nice to have" image, not a critical one. It's important to note that you don't always need an image to understand a topic - we know that a player suffered a horrific injury that ended his career and had a huge impact on his life simply by reading the text. The image does not provide any encyclopedic information that's part of a sourced discussion other than that it looks horrific. But we already knew that from reading the text and cited sources.

Also, non-free content in listicles are discouraged per WP:NFCC.

FWIW, this image was previously kept after a discussion that resulted in "no consensus". Ytoyoda (talk) 15:48, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Keep Point of order the speedy template wasn't removed by me. This images isn't reproducible and the image is essential to illustrating the damage that can occur after an eye gouging Gnevin (talk) 16:25, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Sorry, I thought you'd removed it. Also, I think you're missing the point of my issue with the image - of course the image isn't reproducible and it's essential to illustrating the damage. My point is that illustrating the damage isn't the point of the paragraph - the text discusses the incident and the damage it did to the player's career and life. Ytoyoda (talk) 01:19, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Keep The nominator here has neglected to mention the DR where deletion for a similar reason last time was overturned. My reasons for keeping remains the same that while it may be gruesome, it serves a illustration about what eye-gouging can do at the worst end of the scale and is critical for making that point. Some things you just cannot put into words and you need the visual aid to show you what it is like to get the full understanding. This is one of those things. The C of E God Save the Queen! (talk) 22:37, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Uh, that previous nomination is mentioned above pretty clearly, the last sentenc. Also, "what eye-gouging can do" is already explained in text in explicit terms and can be understood without the accompanying visual, while the way it appears is not mentioned in the text. Ytoyoda (talk) 01:19, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
No you mentioned the Files For Deletion discussion, not the Deletion Review one which was fairly unanimous in restoring it. The C of E God Save the Queen! (talk) 07:42, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Ah, I see, though I don't see how it's a major crime here - the DR simply overturned the speedy deletion because was it wasn't a clear and cut case, and the resulting FfD (which I mentioned, sorry) ended with no consensus because, surprise, it's not a clear and cut case.

Please explain how it can be replaced or explained with text? Gnevin (talk) 09:09, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
@Gnevin: I feel like I've already explained that. You don't need an image to know that eye-gouging happened or understand its seriousness. It's right in the text. And it's telling that none of the other examples of eye-gouging seem to need accompanying visuals. On the other hand, the burden of proof is for users who want to keep non-free content in a free encyclopedia. What exactly are we learning from the image that we're not seeing in text? And is that encyclopedic enough to violate copyright (which is essentially what NFC does)? Ytoyoda (talk) 15:23, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
  • The image may be (mildly) offensive, but the content should not deleted just because it's offensive. However, if it lacks encyclopedic value, then it can be deleted. However, that would be harder to prove because the image may have some encyclopedic value. Nevertheless, this image is non-free and should comply NFCC, so I'll evaluate the compliance. The "Examples" section can be already understood without the image as the article subject is not mainly about case examples of eye gouging. Also, I can see a list of high-profile examples. The section also mentions cases of Gavin Quinnell and Aurélien Rougerie, outweighing the image usage of Harding's injured eye. When the image was nominated in May 2010, Quinnell and Rougerie were not previously mentioned, and the image was added after the FFD. Years later, the article has been improved to the point of whether the image still has its use. However, because free content is strongly encouraged, and the article can still attract sensitive readers, including highly sensitive ones, I would say... "delete". However, someone would say "double standards" and compare this to the image of the little kid's corpse. I'll just vote retain status quo, defaulting to "keep".

File:Madonna Rebel Heart physical standard cover.png (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Chasewc91 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Violates both Wikipedia:NFCC#3a and Wikipedia:NFCC#8, and has an invalid WP:Fair use rationale—in that the FUR states that the image will be used "as the primary means of visual identification at the top of the article dedicated to the work in question" which isn't accurate, since there are two covers included in the infobox. The grey cover with ropes around her face serves as the album's primary visual identification, and there is no contextual significance given for the additional image, as only the grey one is discussed through prose in the article. Homeostasis07 (talk) 16:58, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
Edit: Neglected to mention that this file was discussed here 14 months ago, which was fairly... confused, resulting in no consensus, with numerous editors merely spending the duration quibbling back and forth over the intent of NFCC. Homeostasis07 (talk) 21:20, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep. NFCC#3 is met as described by the FUR: "additional cover is needed for readers who may only be able to recognize the artwork for the album's standard version." Secondary artwork is for CD copies of the the standard (main) version of the album. NFCC#8 is also met per the FUR: "to serve as a means of visual identification" (I've removed the word "primary" even though this was supplied by the uploading wizard and is really a minor squabble). NFCC#8 says that non-free content is used "only if its presence would significantly increase readers' understanding of the article topic" – having visual identification for both of the 2 main album covers (one used digitally, the other physically) is a necessity. There is also precedent for inclusion of additional primary artworks: Revival (Selena Gomez album), ...Baby One More Time (album), and The Remix (Lady Gaga album), to name a few. Chase (talk | contributions) 17:59, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
Where does the FUR say "additional cover is needed for readers who may only be able to recognize the artwork for the album's standard version", because I don't see it. And even if was there, it would need to be removed for being a gross violation of WP:NFCC. And removing the word "primary" from the description is also a violation of NFCC and, regardless, still doesn't solve the issues. Wikipedia is not here to include images of every single artwork used for all different editions of an album—if we were, Hesitation Marks would have 5 different covers in its infobox; Zeitgeist (The Smashing Pumpkins album) would have 6. If people want to see additional covers, they can access them via Discogs. Additional covers are only used when proper contextual significance is provided by the article, which is not the case at Rebel Heart. The Britney album – on the other hand – does have cited prose explaining how the EU edition uses a different, "more angelic" image; the other two don't, and those images should be nominated here too. Homeostasis07 (talk) 18:35, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
Which NFCC#3? "Minimal number of items" or "Minimal extent of use", because neither support your argument. Why don't we upload the third cover as well, since it's one of the "official covers"? Homeostasis07 (talk) 21:23, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Question Why is the "Deluxe and digital standard edition artwork" the main image in the infobox and the "Physical standard edition artwork" the alternative image? I know the first one was used in the article first, but usually deluxe editions are the alternative images. I cannot think of too many album that use different covers for physical and digital versions. Is the reason that more digital copies are sold than physical copies? If so, for other articles, is there a certain year where digital versions should take preference over physical versions? Aspects (talk) 01:14, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Answer Because the "deluxe and digital standard edition artwork" was widely used artwork during the time of the record's release, and made sense to include it at the top of the article. And the "Physical standard edition artwork" was put as the secondary image because it was believed, by some, to help readers better understand the page's subject matter, given that both covers were used side-by-side during the time of the album's release at public stores. Per WP:NFCC, we have contextual significance for the main infobox image; it's something we do not have for the secondary image — a.k.a. the one nominated for discussion. As such, the main image is what's predominately used for its digital releases, and is widely recognized as being associated with the album and its contents, etc. livelikemusic talk! 02:39, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
  • @Aspects: have you considered your stance on this image based on the above response? —IB [ Poke ] 15:04, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete My point regarding the image has not changed from previous FFD. It has no contextual significance, has no predominant release except for one particular format, and no critical analysis of the image unlike the deluxe edition used in the main infobox. We can also have several examples where both cover passes the FUR, like The Fame Monster. Rebel Heart certainly does not fall in that and this extra cover is just a plain failure of NFCC. —IB [ Poke ] 04:45, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete - Last year, I voted "weak keep" because I assumed that omitting the physical standard image would harm the article and readers' understanding of the album, Rebel Heart. However, I read the whole article and arguments about this image, and I realize that an image caption for the deluxe/digital edition cover should suffice readers' understanding, making the physical standard one redundant. Also, as said before, the whole article has not yet mentioned this image. Maybe the whole discussion is not more to do with helping readers understand the album but with emotions based on or influenced by attempted efforts to improve the article. If deleted, I wonder whether it would lead to more outrage or something, but then again, this is an encyclopedia, not a shopping catalogue or a gallery of images or a Madonna-dedicated website. If kept, however, I wonder how many more nominations will be made until the image is deleted. Meanwhile, other websites still have the cover of the physical standard edition, so all's not lost... unless I'm proven wrong. --George Ho (talk) 20:20, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete, as nominator. Homeostasis07 (talk) 22:08, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

The source site given in the image description is not the Washington State Legislature site but rather the Democratic caucus site and it states "Copyright 2013 Washington State Senate Democratic Caucus | All Rights Reserved". I can't find the phot on that site anyways. The EXIF on the photo states the copyright holder is "Washington State Legislative Support Services" and that the photo's copyright status is copyrighted. The contact information in the EXIF provides a website, www.lssphotos.com which states photos can be purchased which doesn't seem to support the idea the the legislative photos are public domain. -- Whpq (talk) 19:19, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Non-free logo being used in 2009–10 RIT Tigers men's ice hockey season, RIT Tigers men's ice hockey, RIT Tigers women's ice hockey. Generally, the non-free use of university mascot logos such as this is only allowed in a stand-alone article about the mascot itself or the univeristy's athletic department because this is where any sourced critcal commentary is likely to be found discussing the mascot. In individual teams articles, the consensus in other similar FFD has been to not allow non-free use becuase such usage tends to be more "decorative" that contextual and the individual teams are seen as "child entities" of the main athletic team article per item 17 of WP:NFC#UUI. In such cases, a non-free ogo specific to an individual team or a feely licensed/public domain wordmark is allowed (like seen here or here), which seems to be the case here. So, I suggest keep for individual team articles

In individual season articles, however, the use of sponsor/organizer/team logos is pretty much not allowed per item 14 of WP:NFC#UUI, unless it is a logo specific to that particular reoccuring season. Moreover, individual season articles are conisdered to be child entities of the main team article, so item 17 of WP:NFC#UUI is also an issues. Another problem with the season article is that the source provided for the image is to a program for the 2010-2011 season, whereas the logo is being used in an article about the 2009-2010 season. For these reasons, I suggest remove from the season article. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:04, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

File:Architectural and acoustic model of the Sednaya prison.png[edit]

File:Architectural and acoustic model of the Sednaya prison.png (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Al Nahri (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

I doubt that this meets WP:NFCC#1. It's just a normal prison building, and its appearance and construction does not particularly help to explain anything in the article Sednaya Prison, which is mostly about the atrocities that took place there. Also, are we sure that there are no free images, e.g. by U.S. government satellites? I'd also expect there to be US military aerial surveillance imagery of the site that could surface in some report or other about the atrocities.  Sandstein  08:22, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

File:The "welcome party".jpg[edit]

File:The "welcome party".jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by R 2017 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

This is an artists' impression of a person being tortured by being beaten with sticks at Sednaya Prison. I doubt that the file meets WP:NFCC#1. It does not require a particularly strong imagination to visualize how a beating looks like, and the information conveyed by the image could therefore be replaced with text. Some of the other torture methods depicted at the source page are more complicated and would be better suited for an image under WP:NFCC#1. (Whether it would be appropriate to do so is an editorial question on which I am neutral.)  Sandstein  08:56, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

I prefer to keep the print ad from the TV Guide, which promoted the television film Billionaire Boys Club. The UK DVD, used in the infobox, is a subsequent release and doesn't help readers much. Nonetheless, I welcome other opinions please. --George Ho (talk) 04:53, 2 June 2017 (UTC); edited. 04:54, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the ping. The image is the only representation of the comic's interior art, which is vastly different from the cover shown in the infobox. I have added a publication history section that discusses Kieth's style. Argento Surfer (talk) 13:32, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

I uploaded the side label of the US vinyl single because the US release was successful in its home country. The song wasn't charted in Germany, yet the German artwork is used. Hmm... the artwork was also used for a Dutch release. My preference is keep the US vinyl and delete the other. However, I don't mind other kinds of votes as the single was a hit in both the US and the Netherlands. George Ho (talk) 05:13, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
