  • Non-encyclopedic, low-quality image currently being used solely on the user's page, which is in turn up for deletion. jonny-mt 07:24, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Delete with userpage. Rationale is on MfD discussion. — Trust not the Penguin (T | C) 09:31, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

  • Per [1], this is a fake. ALLSTARecho 08:02, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Image:Circle sign 475.svg (delete | talk | history | logs) - uploaded by Allstarecho (notify | contribs).
  • The image is actually a PNG with an SVG extension (as evidenced by the broken source code). A proper SVG is available on Commons with the same file name. TMF Let's Go Mets - Stats 08:34, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Delete - This image didn't exist when I made it and uploaded it. I also used software that was supposed to convert files to svg but apparently the software just renames png files??? Thanks for uploading a correct version to Commons. I'm assuming that since they are both the same name that when this one is deleted, the related articles will automatically start using the Commons version? ALLSTARecho 15:45, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

  • Orphaned, has no encyclopedic use, not even in 4chan. h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 13:07, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
  • I approve of this deletion. It was uploaded solely to showcase the Pedobear meme, and since that article is gone it has no reason to stay on Wikipedia. I'd like to thank HisSpaceResearch for combing through my contributions. Hopefully he can find more things to delete. Hermione is a dude (talk) 23:59, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

  • As stated by uploader, it is a photographic reproduction of a 2D work by the Australia Zoo. Unless the zoo explicitly releases the rights to the sign or licenses it, I would consider it non-free. I don't think fair use applies to Turtle and honestly it's not of great encyclopedic value, probably being a tertiary source drawing from other citable sources.

  • non-free image, does not add significantly to readers' understanding Calliopejen1 (talk) 17:01, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Keep, does add significantly to readers' understanding. - Mafia Expert (talk) 18:31, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Keep, Caption has been added, giving timeframe of ad and show title. The ad contributes to an understanding that, during the 1930s and 1940s, Cantor was one of the biggest stars on radio. Pepso2 (talk) 04:03, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

And you can't just write that sentence in the article?.... Calliopejen1 (talk) 13:33, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Keep, To tighten the relevance, I did add that show title to the body copy when I added the caption. Pepso2 (talk) 18:35, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Struck your keep because you already said keep above. Again, if it was not important enough to even have the show in the article previously, it is unlikely to be so important that readers need an image to understand it even better. The statement that he appeared in this show is perfectly clear without the ad. If you can dig up sources that say these caricatures of his huge eyes were his trademark (and that the caricatures were more important for him than other celebrities [because this suggests that all celebrities of the era were famously caricatured]), I might withdraw one of these noms, but besides that these images contribute nothing that couldn't be expressed with words alone. Calliopejen1 (talk) 18:46, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

All visual material contains "information" which differs from written "information." However, I'm outvoted here, so I have deleted the ad. Pepso2 (talk) 20:20, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

  • Orphaned, unencyclopedic, misleading file name. —Angr If you've written a quality article... 17:05, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment: I would imagine that the reason for the file name was that the image was uploaded by an inexperienced uploader, who had called the file Wikipedia.PNG on his own computer because it was the only one he intended to upload to Wikipedia. -- The Last User Name Ever (talk) 15:29, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Keep. Does add useful information, is very different from the other image. - Mafia Expert (talk) 18:35, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

  • What useful information not shown in the other image? Certainly nothing discussed in either article where it's used. —Angr If you've written a quality article... 18:37, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Delete. Obviously and completely replaceable by the free image. Calliopejen1 (talk) 13:35, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

  • Non-Free image that is easily replaceable after product is released. Arbiteroftruth (talk) 19:24, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Should not be deleted until after product launch date, as of now it is irreplaceable. Johndbritton (talk) 19:46, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Irreplaceable refers to something that is permanently and irrevocably irreplaceable (ex: a photo of an accident). This product will be mass produced and recreated a million times over. You cannot recreate an accident (technically you can, but who will?). Let's wait for a free image taken by a Wikipedian who cannot wait to get an MacBook Air. Arbiteroftruth (talk) 19:56, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
  • We ran into the same problem when the iPhone and iPod classic were released. It's a non-free image of a product that has free images available for it. -- MacAddct  1984 (talk • contribs) 22:46, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Keep until product launch date. It's not reasonable to expect a free alternative to be available yet, because the product hasn't shipped yet--meaning that the only people with access to it to photograph are at Apple. So, I think it would be fair use to use until someone could get their hands on one to photograph. -- The Last User Name Ever (talk) 15:27, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
  • The image was replaced by free, creative common images already. This means that the picture in question is now orphaned, in addition to it not being free. Please, for god's sake, delete this. Arbiteroftruth (talk) 15:59, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

  • No summary to justify it's existence on the page. HeaveTheClay (talk) 21:02, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Marked for speedy deletion as it is copied from [2] and lacks license, description and a fair use rationale. Regards, High on a tree (talk) 08:04, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
