Wikipedia:Files for discussion

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to 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 discussion, 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  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.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.
  • Wrong license or status - The file is under one license, but the information on the file description pages suggests that a different license is more appropriate, or a clarification of status is desirable.
  • Wrongly claimed as own - The file is under a 'self' license, but the information on the file description pages suggests otherwise.

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 process. 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 template but isn't used in any articles.
    4. {{subst:rfu}} if a file has a non-free copyright template but could be replaced by a free file.
    5. {{subst:dfu|reason}} if a file has a non-free copyright template 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=2019 March 24}} 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=2019 March 24}} 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=2019 March 24}} 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.

Possibly unfree – The file is tagged with a freeness claim, but may actually be eligible for copyright in the United States. AmericanAgent (talk) 17:42, 11 March 2019 (UTC) AmericanAgent (talkcontribs) is a confirmed sock puppet of Mohammedjaseem66 (talkcontribs).

  • PD-textlogo and transfer to Commons. Certainly too simple for US and the threshold in India is similar c:COM:TOO India. I'd ask the nominator why not move to Commons but they are a blocked sock (which makes we wonder why we're entertaining his case in the first place). – Finnusertop (talkcontribs) 22:44, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was: delete. Catfish Jim and the soapdish 11:58, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

File:Navy Seal copypasta.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Nixinova (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

{{PD-text}} does not apply to this image because it isn't an image of an individual word or slogan, but is an image of an entire paragraph. Despite the fact that this paragraph has been widely used across the internet, it still has an original author that holds a copyright on the text. Ahecht (TALK

  • Strong keep. It's literally just text. How is this copywritable. Also, see the first part of the sentence: This image only consists of typefaces.  Nixinova  T  C  04:19, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
    Your argument is invalid. Copyright was originally invented to protect text. -FASTILY 06:32, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Fastily is right. Delete since meme would be copyrighted and there's no evidence that author (whomever they are) has released text from copyright. Abzeronow (talk) 15:13, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete ¶ This is a derivative work of somebody else's copyrighted production. Nixinova (talk · contribs) may have created the image, but they extensively used somebody else's copyright to do so. Similarly, if Nixinova painted an award-winning masterpiece, and I took a close-up Polaroid instant photo of it, the photograph is derivative of the original work; if I release my photograph into the public domain, it's still burdened by Nixinova's original copyright. — fourthords | =Λ= | 16:42, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete even though this image is purely text, PD-text does not apply because this is a whole paragraph that is long enough to be eligible for copyright. I don’t know who the original creator is, as with popular memes that get circulated a lot on the internet. Therefore, I have no idea what the original creator licensed it as. —-Atomicdragon136 (talk) 04:00, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

File:Brilliant Chang as the Limehouse Spider.jpg[edit]

File:Brilliant Chang as the Limehouse Spider.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Philafrenzy (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Very much oversized non-free image (now at 1.5Mpx) - there is no rationale for such a very large size as stated in WP:NFC - At the extreme high end of the range, non-free images where one dimension exceeds 1,000 pixels, or where the pixel count approaches 1 megapixel, will very likely require a close review to verify that the image needs that level of resolution. Editors should ensure that the image rationale fully explains the need for such a level of detail. Ronhjones  (Talk) 02:56, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Comment If this is reduced in size it is possible that the text in the bottom right will become illegible. If this happens it will be important to transcribe it into the image description and possibly caption. Thryduulf (talk) 11:46, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

File:GE9X cutaway.jpg[edit]

File:GE9X cutaway.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Marc Lacoste (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

I believe this fair-use image (used in General Electric GE9X) fails WP:FU criteria #8 for contextual significance. Configuration details specific to this engine are almost invisible at this low resolution. What is visible (the main configuration and layout) is not at all specific to the GE9X. We have plenty of images of similar engines available to show a fan, compressor, turbine arrangement, including the GE90 from which this engine has been developed. Now that we have a free photo of the actual engine as a lead image, there is no need in my eyes to keep GE’s non-free version. Ariadacapo (talk) 06:35, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

The exterior picture of the fan does not show the engine config. A free picture of a cutaway could be taken in a museum/airshow to illustrate its config, like in Pratt_&_Whitney_Canada_PT6#Design, but no engine cutaway is on display and could replace it. The low resolution is due to the mandatory resize, the original does show each stage, in a different config than the previous GE90 (3LP+11HP vs 3LP+10HP or 4LP+9HP compressor) with no cutaway anyway, and the relative size of the parts is not the same (the GE9x core is relatively smaller). It seems to me an interesting fair use usage of a promo picture, not available by other means right now.--Marc Lacoste (talk) 09:47, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
The original image is super interesting — we can make an external link to it. But as it stands now in the article, it brings nothing that can’t also be seen in many other free images we already have. Ariadacapo (talk) 10:21, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep as per @Marc Lacoste: said, there aren't any free images of a cutaway of the GE9X because there aren't any on display in museums or public places for people to take pictures of. --Atomicdragon136 (talk) 03:43, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

File:Boeing 777X launch.jpg[edit]

File:Boeing 777X launch.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Wbm1058 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

I believe this non-free photo (used on Boeing 777X) now fails criteria #1 and #8 of WP:FU: "no free equivalent", and "contextual significance".

(this image formerly displayed two airplanes and was used as lead. now that we have a free lead image, it is used to illustrate different configurations of the 777X)

The only useful visual information here is that the -8 airplane is shorter than the -9. A sentence is enough to convey this information. If not, a simple diagram could be created. Ariadacapo (talk) 07:31, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

As you note, it is a different configurations, not illustrated in the main pic anymore. It will not have a free equivalent until the -8 variant is rolled out. The visual difference, being shorter, is the main difference between variants. There are others like the exit door config. This is a useful usage of a promo picture. A diagram would be a nice supplement.--Marc Lacoste (talk) 09:51, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
I fail to see how this supports criteria #1 (a free equivalent could definitely be created for the same purpose) and #8 (removing the photo would not be detrimental to the readers’ understanding of the topic). We can add an external link to the non-free photo montage instead of embedding a thumbnail. Ariadacapo (talk) 10:19, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

File:Rio Grande Valley Dorados Helmet 2019.png (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by NostalgiaBuff97501 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Non-free image which is not needed per WP:NFCC#3a. There is already a non-free file of the logo (File:Rio Grande Valley Dorados.png) being used for primary identification purposes in the main infobox; so, there's no need for two non-free files which are providing essentially the same information. If the color of the helmet is worth mentioning in the article, it can be sufficiently done so using text per WP:FREER. This file was prodded for deletion, but deprodded by the uploader; so, I'm bringing it's non-free use up for discussion here. -- Marchjuly (talk) 08:55, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

  • This file is THE helmet that is being used by the team as is evident by a YouTube video of an actual game payed a week and a half ago. The link can be found on the team's page and the proof is right there. NostalgiaBuff97501 (talk) 09:03, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
    • Whether this file actually shows the helmet used by the team has nothing to do with why its non-free use is being discussed here. There are two logos being used in the infobox that are basically identical and provide the same encyclopedic information to the reader, but there's no need for two such files per Wikipedia's non-free content use policy. The logo file shows the teams logo more clearly and it seems better for that one to be kept; however, if you think it's better for the reader to see the helmet file, then perhaps that's the one which should be kept. -- Marchjuly (talk) 09:25, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

For similar reasons as given above for #File:Rio Grande Valley Dorados Helmet 2019.png, two non-free files basically showing the same logo and providing the same encyclopedic information are not needed for primary identification purposes in the main infobox per WP:NFCC#3a. Whether its better to keep this file or File:Austin Wild.png can be discussed, but the logo file does seem to be better for identification purposes than the helmet file; so, that's the one I would suggest keeping. -- Marchjuly (talk) 13:39, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Delete - I am requesting that this image be removed from Wikipedia. I originally posted the seal as part of our institution's renaming from college to University. I posted it using the wrong license and was asked to have it take it down. I removed it from the Simmons University page but they would also like the seal deleted completely for now. I hope I did this right! -- Mikecorreia (talk) 20:37, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

Since we know both the photographer and the publication dates, this image is unquestionably safe on Commons as c:File:Watson Rutherford.jpg. Unless OP has an additional objection to render, we can delete the local version. Magog the Ogre (tc) 22:05, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Delete doesn't include a publication date, so it's not possible to conclude whether this is PD in the US or not. (Additionally, nothing to conclude {{PD-US-unpublished}} by) – Finnusertop (talkcontribs) 01:16, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
  • @Threehundredeight: It was undoubtedly published soon after it was taken. Photographs in those days were expensive, and I imagine a parliamentary figure would have had his commissioned photograph published. Magog the Ogre (tc) 16:16, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
One thing we do know is that this was not a commissioned photograph. There is a higher bar for images legitimately existing on Commons which include dated evidence of publication.Threehundredeight (talk) 17:26, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

I originally nominated this for CSD. However, the article from which the image appears to be sourced claims the image is used under CC BY 2.0; but the image does not appear to be available on Flickr anymore, so the claim is difficult to verify. Jc86035 (talk) 16:58, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

@RHaworth: I removed the CSD tag before you deleted the file, so it could be appropriate to temporarily undelete it. Jc86035 (talk) 17:00, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
