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  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.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 December 11}} 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 December 11}} 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 December 11}} 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.

  • Delete, redundant to PNG file. Salavat (talk) 23:47, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

File:Zochrot at the former Lydda ghetto.JPG[edit]

File:Zochrot at the former Lydda ghetto.JPG (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by SlimVirgin (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

No license number included in the OTRS release, per [1]. This should be deleted pending valid permission. We can't correctly tag this as any specific free license. ~ Rob13Talk 03:25, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep. BU Rob13, this seems overly strict. The copyright holder released it in 2009 under a cc-by licence. I was the one who requested the release, and I included in my email to the copyright holder a link to cc-by 3.0 US so that he knew what he was agreeing to. It was my fault that he did not spell out in his reply that he was agreeing to that version in particular, but it can surely be assumed, in the sense that I sent him that link and he agreed to it. SarahSV (talk) 03:35, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep, pretty much per Sarah. Our concern is that the image be licensed to be freely reused and modified. Every version of the Creative Commons Attribution license meets that. So whatever license number is actually meant suffices. There isn't that much difference between the version numbers for our purposes. --GRuban (talk) 20:15, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
    • Which version do we tell readers it can be reused under? There are substantive legal differences in the details of different versions. ~ Rob13Talk 20:22, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
      • Good point. (Though, honestly, there is no difference in the "human readable summaries" of 3.0 and 1.0, so for the overwhelming majority of people it would not matter.) If Sarah used a link to 3.0 in her explanation of what cc-by is, and then owner agreed to cc-by, I think we say he agreed to cc-by 3.0. --GRuban (talk) 20:30, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
      • BU Rob13, I've tagged it as cc-by 3.0. I don't mind writing to the copyright holder at some point in future to ask him to update his release, but I don't have time to do it at the moment (although you or anyone else are welcome to). SarahSV (talk) 00:28, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep - I agree with SlimVirgin and GRuban. It is reasonable to place this under CC-BY 3.0. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 21:26, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

File:I'm Dreamin' by Christopher Williams.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Simple2010 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

This song never had any official artwork. The image uploaded by Simple2010 is fan-made artwork. Binksternet (talk) 11:16, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

  • Delete per nom and because the licensing information is inconsistent: The image is claimed to have originated in 1990/1 as the cover, which would make it non-free. However, the author claims to own the copyright and licenses it under GFDL 1.2. Since the image is, as mentioned by nom, a fan work posing as an official cover, I’d say this is a WP:HOAX, possibly a WP:G3. 165.91.12.190 (talk) 12:42, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
Also, I found that the uploader had previously uploaded fan song artwork as the original. I think {{Image hoax}} and {{db-hoax}} is due. 165.91.12.190 (talk) 13:18, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

File:633 Squadron.jpg[edit]

File:633 Squadron.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Bzuk (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

There are two media images used in the article 633 Squadron, the film poster from 1964 and this, the DVD cover, from 2003. The film poster is used in the infobox and the DVD cover is used in the Reception section of the article, where it is not mentioned. The DVD is mentioned in the Home media section about its release and its features. The DVD cover fails WP:NFCC#3a in that the of film poster already is used in the article for means of identification and fails WP:NFCC#8 because there is no commentary about the cover thereby doing nothing to increase the reader's understanding of the film and its exclusion is not detrimental to the understanding of the film. Aspects (talk) 23:53, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

  • Delete, excessive to the poster in the article. Salavat (talk) 00:15, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

December 7[edit]

File:AddamsFamilyOCR.jpg[edit]

File:AddamsFamilyOCR.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by S.S. Miami (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Non-free album cover art being used twice in The Addams Family (musical): once in the main infobox and once in The Addams Family (musical)#Original Broadway cast recording. The file is only provided with a non-free use rationale for one of the uses, but it doesn't specifically state which one. So, one of the uses fails WP:NFCC#10c and can be removed as such per WP:NFCCE. There is also no need for two uses of the file per WP:NFCC#3a, which means the file should not be used twice in the article even even if another non-free use rationale is provided.

In addition to the above, there are also issues with WP:NFCC#1 and WP:NFCC#8 which need to be resolved as well. The non-free use in the section about the recording is similar to the way some people add non-free film soundtrack album covers to "Soundtrack" sections in articles about films. This is something that is not recommended per WP:FILMSCORE, and I think the same reasoning is applicable here. The album cover art itself is not the subject of any sourced critical commentary anywhere in the article, so NFCC#8 is not met per WP:NFC#cite_note-3 and WP:NFC#Meeting the contextual significance criterion, unless more is added about the cover art somewhere in the article. The question, therefore, is whether the file's use as the primary means of identification in the main infobox is justified. If the article was about the recording itself, then using it in the main infobox for such a purpose would make sense; the article, however, is about the musical, so it would seem better to use the poster art for the musical instead in the main infobox: such as the poster seen here. Although the two files are quite similiar, the poster art does have "A New Musical Comedy" at the bottom and is missing the names of the two lead actors at the top, while the album cover has the lead's names and "Words and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa". So, it seems they were intended for different branding purposes.

If the consensus is that this difference is not enough to remove the album cover from the main infobox, then fine. I do think though that it would be better to upload the other image as {{Non-free poster}} using {{Non-free use rationale poster}} for the main infobox and then delete the cast recording album cover art altogether.

Finally, just for reference, I have notified the uploader of this dicussion, but they have been indefinitely blocked since 2011. So, I don't anticipate any clarification being provided from them about the file's use. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:52, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

Frankly this doesn't matter as it is still a fully valid upload according to WP:FAIRUSE, and that it is a potential copyright violation is only personal speculation and not something we can go by — and Wikipedia is not violating copyright law no matter how you interpret it. Add to that how there is no date and we can't tell which copy is oldest which is a requirement if we were to pull it from commons. Without being able to tell whether it could be the other way round with SH using the image first or an earlier date it's not even enough to delete from commons. But since this is fair use those things don't matter at all. However, the discription should be updated with this information in mind. Distrait cognizance (talk) 13:11, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

This is clearly not just a "text logo" and almost certainly (in my opinion) too complex (even for the c:COM:TOO#United States) to be {{PD-logo}}. Non-free use in the Brainerd High School (Tennessee) could possibly be justified, but generally mascot logos do not seem to be used in the main infobox of school articles, so the school's crest (shown here) might be a better choice for that encyclopedic purpose. If the school's athletic department was notable enough to support a stand-alone article, then I could see using this file for identification there; however, I don't believe the typical high school athletic department is considered notable enough for a stand-alone article just for existing per WP:SCHOOLOUTCOMES. -- Marchjuly (talk) 22:06, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

  • Comment - This appears to be a logo for the entire school, not just the athletic department. The school article guidelines, while just an essay and not an official policy, suggest the inclusion of "the school's crest, logo, seal, emblem and/or coat of arms." Bneu2013 (talk) 00:18, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
I think it would be acceptable to use a non-free logo in the main infobox for identification purposes; I just don't recall seeing any mascot logos being used this way in any high school or university articles. I've asked John from Idegon to clarify this because John is one of the coordinators (and I believe founders) of WP:WPSCHOOLS, so he should know what the current practice is. If the file can be used, then I think its licensing should be converted to {{Non-free logo}}, and {{Non-free use rationale logo}} added for the infobox use. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:20, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
I agree completely this not a PD text only file and is hence misliscensed. However, it should simply be re-licensed as fair use logo and we'll be done here. It's in use, and the only reason it would fail NFCC is if it weren't. Marchjuly, I think the point you are missing is, at least in the US, the identity of a school is the athletics logo or mascot. Sure, most schools have an official seal or crest, but about the only place you'll see it is on a diploma (and I've even seen diplomas with the athletic logo on them). I've personally uploaded over 150 NFCC files for use in school infoboxes, and at least half (probably more like 75%) have been athletic logos. So my !vote here would be Fix license and keep. John from Idegon (talk) 02:48, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
My main concern was about the PD licensing. If the consensus is to convert to non-free and use in the main infobox, then I'm fine with that. I just haven't seen mascot logos used in this way before; I most see creats or other logos used in high school/university logos and mascot logos used in athletic department articles. I completely understand that school identity is highly associated with the school's choice of mascots. It was the same at my high school and university, but those two Wikipedia article do use the crest in the main infobox. I didn't check every article in Category:High schools in the United States by state, but I checked Alabama and most of the article I saw using infobox images were either using crests or a photo of the school. I did see some using mascot logos, but not nearly as many. Anyway, that was the extent of my very limited research before starting this FFD. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:17, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Non-free images in Benton fireworks disaster[edit]

File:Benton tn fireworks explosion damages.png (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Bneu2013 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

Four non-free images being used in Benton fireworks disaster. While I can see how the non-free use of one of these images in the main infobox could be justified, using the other three in the body of the article is fairly decorative, lacks the context required by WP:NFCC#8 and doesn't really add anything encyclopedically new to the article per WP:NFCC#1 and WP:NFCC#3a which cannot be understood through plain text or seeing the infobox image.

A non-free image of a sign at the entrance of the farm where the explosion occured is not needed in any way, and multiple images of post-explosion debris are not needed when one is more than sufficent. Even if one of the images was itself the subject of sourced critical commentary in reliable sources due to some unique aspect about it and specific content about the image was added to the article, then that would be the infobox image and the other two still wouldn't be needed per NFCC#3a. The licensing these images as {{Non-free historic image}} is also not really accurate for the reasons give in WP:ITSHISTORIC. The disaster itself might be considered "historic" in a manner, but that doesn't necessarily mean photographs of it are historic in nature.

My suggestion is that "File:Webb's bait farm.png" be deleted since there's really no way to justify its non-free use. Then one of the other three could be kept for the main infobox, with the remaining two also being deleted. Which of the three should be kept can be determined through discussion. All of the images are blurred to some degree and not of a really good quality. It seems like an aerial photo probably would be the best for the infobox to give the reader an idea about the extent of the damage, but the current infobox photo is pretty bad. The only image with some reasonable clarity is "File:Benton tn fireworks explosion damages.png", so that's the one I would suggest keeping. I think the copyright license, however, should probably be changed to {{Non-free fair use}}. -- Marchjuly (talk) 10:50, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Non-free album cover art being used in a decorative manner in Will Dailey. In general, a non-free album cover is allowed to be used for the primary means of identification in a stand-alone article about the album, but (as explained in WP:NFC#cite_note-3) a much stronger justification is needed when the file is added to other articles, such as the artist's article. None of these particular album covers is itself the subject of any sourced critical commentary about the its artwork or branding, so the context required for non-free use in the artist's article by WP:NFCC#8 is lacking. The fact that none of these albums seem Wikipedia enough for a stand-alone article per WP:NALBUM, does not automatically mean OK for non-free use in other articles. If more sourced content about the cover art is added to the sections discussing the albums or if stand-alone articles are written about the albums, then it might be possible to justify the non-free use of these files; otherwise, they all should be deleted per WP:NFCC#1 and NFCC#8. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:19, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

  • Delete – this photo is not found on the Congressman's current House website, nor is it found on his official Facebook page or official Twitter account. Plus, this photo looks a little different than the one uploaded here. I've asked for an exact link to the image (same h×w size) and none has been given. This can be seen at the Commons deletion request listed above. Corky Buzz by the Hornet's Nest 04:29, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment: Looks like the file has been used here at least as far back as February 15, 2016. That website, however, is protected by copyright which means if that's where the image originated, then probably it can't be uploaded as {{PD-USgov}}. Same file seems to also be being used here as far back as November 2015, but in a much smaller size and with the same copyright issues. My guess is that this might be an older official photo that the Congressman's staff was using for PR purposes; it may even be an official photo taken by a US government employee, but not sure if Wikipedia can automatically assume that without a proper source. Maybe the thing to do here would be to tag the file with {{npd}} to give the uploader a chance to send something to OTRS for verification purposes? -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:57, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
