Below is a list of basic checks that new page patrollers should perform on each page patrol in Wikipedia Image namespace.

Image/File namespace checklist

Special:Newimages logs all new images as they are created. Check new images for the following problems:

  • Image copyright tag Check that an appropriate image copyright tag has been added. If not, leave a note on the contributor's talk page per suggestions here.
  • Image source The image description must say how the image was obtained, for example if the uploader took it himself. Also consider if the licence is reasonable considered the source, for example a combination of "I found it on bbc" and "this image is public domain" may indicate that the image is in fact not free. Tag unsourced images with {{subst:nsd}}.
