Wikipedia:Files for discussion

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.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 August 20}} 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 August 20}} 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 August 20}} 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:

Non-free book covers in Clark Ashton Smith[edit]

File:DoubleShadow-by-RichDiSilvio.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by DVed (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log).

Files of non-free cover art being used in a decorative manner in Clark Ashton Smith#Bibliography. A non-free book cover is generally allowed when it is used as the primary means of indentification in a stand-alone article about the book itself as explained in WP:NFC#cite_note-3, but a much stronger justification for non-free use is typically required when used in other articles, such as articles about the book's author. These particular covers are not themselves the subject of any sourced critical commentary within the author's article, so the context required by WP:NFCC#8 is lacking. Moreover, there are already a number of freely licensed files of books covers being used in the article, so adding these two non-free ones is not something needed per WP:NFCC#1, especially for two books mentioned as entries in an embedded list (see WP:NFLISTS) in Clark Ashton Smith#Wildside Press. If the two books are notable per WP:NBOOK for stand-alone articles, then the files can be used those articles; they should not, however, be used in the author's article. Suggest delete per NFCC#1 and NFCC#8. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:55, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

File:Frank E. Wheelock of Lubbock (right).jpg[edit]

File:Frank E. Wheelock of Lubbock (right).jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Billy Hathorn (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Since this is non-FUR, shouldn't it be cropped to show only F. E. Wheelock, ie: the guy about whom the target article relates? I'm not good on what is right or wrong when it comes to FUR, so apologies in advance if it is me who is wrong. Sitush (talk) 07:05, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Comment: I'm not sure if there's a technical reason it cannot be cropped; in fact, it looks like there is a cropped version here. Maybe it would be a good idea to ask at WP:GL to see what they say. Otherwise, I agree that there only really needs to be an image of Wheelock. In addition, since he was Mayor of Lubbock from 1909 to 1915 which is before 1923, maybe there's a free image of him (an old newspaper photo, etc.) from around that time which can be licensed as {{PD-US-1923}} or {{PD-old-70}} or something similar; for example, something like this might be old enough for PD if it can clarified when the photo was published or taken. -- Marchjuly (talk) 08:59, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

There is no critical commentary of the image itself in the article, it is being used to show two of the actresses in the film, it does nothing to increase the reader's understanding of the film and its exclusion is not detrimental to the understanding of the film, thereby failing WP:NFCC#8.

File:LootBox.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Tom Edwards (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

This seems like a violation of NFCC#1 - this is not being used in an article about a specific game, or a game manufacturer, but rather a video game concept. The concept lends itself predominantly to non-free software, but for instance, we don't have an image of a nag screen in Shareware. – Train2104 (t • c) 10:31, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

That's a fair point, but I think that the importance of the image to the article outweighs it. These boxes are gambling devices and as such are designed to appeal to the human brain on a very primitive level. Just describing one in text wouldn't help much, and it would be weird to make readers click a link before they could understand such an important concept. Ideally the article would have a video showing the whole process, but a still image is a good compromise. --Tom Edwards (talk) 16:44, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Weak Delete. This issue seems o somewhat go in line with the issue brought up at Wikipedia:NFC#UUI point 3. I do not necessarily believe this image fails WP:NFCC#1 since there is probably no free equivalent, but promotional material which focuses directly on the subject of the article would be a more appropriate image to use here, rather than an image taken from another subject. (Rose from album cover vs. Loot box from Overwatch whereas loot boxes are in other games as well.) Steel1943 (talk) 21:25, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
    • Upgraded my comment to "delete". After reading the article, there probably isn't a free equivalent, nor is there an appropriate fair-use equivalent that meets WP:NFCC#8 for the article Loot boxes. If the article was for loot boxes specific to Overwatch, then the image would fulfill WP:NFCC#8 on that article, but that's not what the article Loot boxes is about. (Nor is that an appropriate name for the article per WP:SINGULAR ... I'll probably be fixing that soon.) Steel1943 (talk) 21:29, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Does anyone know if photography is allowed on this ride? (Stitch's Great Escape!?) If so, these images fail WP:NFCC#1. Steel1943 (talk) 18:59, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Nominator comment: In case there is an absence of participation here, consider me neutral on whether or not these images should be deleted. Steel1943 (talk) 19:05, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
Comment: Here's a relatively old photo of the ride's warning sign (or an earlier version thereof), which does not mention anything about photography. I should note that the page where I found the photo has only one photo of the show theater itself, presumably before the ride actually starts as it shows empty seats, so it could be assumed that it's not during the show proper. (Considering that there are moments of total darkness so the Stitch Audio-Animatronic can be moved in and out of the theater via elevator platform for his "escape", it's logical that flash photography wouldn't be allowed to preserve the illusion.) Either way, I don't exactly know for sure. –WPA (talk) 01:53, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Non-free image was added for use in the article No One (Game of Thrones), but when the same user nominated the page for GA status User:Miyagawa told them that the image needed to go because of its poor fair use rationale. AffeL complied initially, then a few minutes after the page was promoted logged into the sock account User:PeterD12 and readded the image. There was already "consensus" on the GAN to remove the image, even if one of the parties was lying (read:with the image in the article, the GAN was effectively null and void), so I have now reremoved the image.

The comic book cover is used in the Other appearances section of Jabberjaw accompanying the sentence "He also appeared in Hanna-Barbera Presents: Superstar Olympics (issue #6) published by Archie Comics in 1996 and Cartoon Network Presents (issue #23) published by DC Comics in 1999." The image has two fair use rationales. One states that the comic book cover is used "For identification purposes in conjunction with discussion of the topic of the article.", but this is incorrect since the topic of the article is the television show and not the comic book and there is already the title card in the infobox identifying the television show. The second states the comic book cover is used "Illustration of a specific point within the article." which is half of a sentence. Readers do not need a comic book cover in an article to know that it exists since the text already states that.

The comic book cover fails WP:NFCC#1 since the text "He also appeared in Hanna-Barbera Presents: Superstar Olympics (issue #6) published by Archie Comics in 1996 and Cartoon Network Presents (issue #23) published by DC Comics in 1999." is sufficient to describe that the comic book exists without the cover being present, WP:NFCC#3a in that there is a screenshot in the infobox for means of identification and fails WP:NFCC#8 because there is no critical 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.

Keep. The comic book cover is to illustrate a point in the article covering the character's appearances outside the medium of television (in this case comicbooks) which is why its located in the "Other appearances" section. This upload not only illustrates this but will give readers a visual to see the character appearing in another form of media outside of its original medium hence the Illustration of a specific point within the article. That was the whole point of the upload. It was to give a visual on how the character has evolved past its original TV incarnation. So when it states For identification purposes in conjunction with discussion of the topic of the article it does so by illustrating a point (or sub-topic) in the main article itself.Giantdevilfish (talk) 13:15, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

The mugshot taken in supposedly Wisconsin was discussed at Talk:Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting#Image of Wade Michael Page as a pre-nomination. I thought about PRODding it. However, because the uploader is one of long-time active editors, I realized that I should take precaution, so I pinged the uploader instead while starting the discussion there. There, the image's compliance of WP:NFCC and copyright status were discussed. Replacing the image with a freer image was considered, but I wasn't sure whether a mugshot from North Carolina is free to use. The other participants there disagreed; no freer replacement was uploaded.

One reason to have the image deleted: the biographical image is used in the non-biographical article about the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting. Even when the section about the perpetrator is detailed, I believe that readers would already understand the event/shooting itself without this image. The shooting itself, not the shooter himself, is the article subject. Another reason: The image isn't necessary to help readers understand that the perpetrator was one of white supremacists. Even the article doesn't (and shouldn't) emphasize too much on his appearance (unless his overall appearance is the important part of the shooting). Sure, racial hatred was the motive for murder and one of major components of the event. The image might be replaceable or irreplaceable. Regardless, the image fails the "contextual significance" criterion.

Of course, I would hear different interpretations on the criterion otherwise. At first I thought about having a central discussion about image of various perpetrators, but I decided to nominate this individual image on the safer side before doing so. --George Ho (talk) 00:34, 19 August 2017 (UTC); amended, 00:38, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

  • The matter was already discussed on the article's talk page, there was no consensus to delete, and bringing the matter here strikes me forum-shopping--although I do appreciate the heads up. The argument that the article can be understood with a picture of the dead perpetrator (whose reputation in death cannot be damaged under common law) is not a positive reason to delete it. Indeed, we should think of the readers' curiosity. There's no reason to force them to use a search engine when we have an image. The sole concern might be copyright, but the mugshot was widely distributed, and our fair use of it does not infringe on its potential monetary value. μηδείς (talk) 20:36, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

This image exists on Commons c:File:Poniatowski bridge - destroyed in 1915.jpg, where it's claimed it's author died in 1940. If correct this would render the local do not move to commons rationale invalid. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 15:39, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

The template was added in 2007 by User:Jarekt: [1]. Back then it might have been valid, 10 years later it seems like the usual case of those templates not being dated and creating problems now... waste of our time due to copyright paranoia. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 12:55, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
@Piotrus and ShakespeareFan00: My edit 10 years ago was to add a license template. I find it weird that the license template comes with a message not to copy the file to Commons unless you know the copyright status of the image. That is true for all license templates. The license situation on Commons is a bit shaky as there is no proof that the photographer died before 1940 as stated by the license. I have seen images deleted for smaller issues. --Jarekt (talk) 14:39, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
