Unfree images[edit]

This tag is used to mark images that are deprecated, and which will eventually be deleted.

On September 20, 2004, Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images began accepting listings for images used in Wikipedia that either do not have a license or are currently listed with a non-free license. In mid 2005 however images lacking source and/or license information became a criterion for speedy deletion, and subsequently the PUF process was amended to deal with cases of disputed copyright status and non-free images instead.

The following tag is for use on such images. Though these images are unwanted, they should not be deleted immediately but proceed to be slowly and respectfully weeded out.

  • {{Puf}} — used for images where the stated copyright status is disputed. If the status can not be resolved the image is usually deleted after being listed for 14 days.

{{idw-pui|Image:ImageName.jpg}} should be added to the uploaders talk page, {{Pufc}} should be put into the caption of the image where it is used, and the image should then be listed on the Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images page so the image can be properly processed.

These tags are used to mark images which are deprecated, and which will eventually be deleted.

  • {{Db-noimage}} — for images that cannot be deleted using the standard deletion procedure due to bugs in the MediaWiki software. Generally, these images have to be manually deleted by a developer.
