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  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.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 January 17}} 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 January 17}} 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 January 17}} 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:

Since Jayme Closs (pictured) has heroically led to her own rescue, it is no longer reasonable to say this photo is irreplaceable. There is a good possibility we can find a free photo replacement for this image as she is alive and well. I also considered the possibility of arguing fair use based on the depiction of a notable historical event but that also does not fit (as this does not depict the subject of the article: Kidnapping of Jayme Closs).

Another less-convincing argument to delete is privacy as she is still a minor and very much still in danger. Jayme Cross is not notable and not a public figure. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 00:49, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

  • Delete Closs is living and a free photograph would be possible to obtain in the future. As the uploader of the image, I support its deletion.--GouramiWatcherTalk 01:19, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

File:Wisconsin-State-Journal-1952-09-04-p1-top.jpg[edit]

File:Wisconsin-State-Journal-1952-09-04-p1-top.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by MikeB17 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Non-free newspaper scan being used in a decorative manner which fails both WP:NFCC#1 and WP:NFCC#8 in Wisconsin State Journal#Supports Senator Joe McCarthy. It seems that newspapers have always endorsed candidates for public office, sometimes even quite passionately, when the people running the paper feel the candidate either best represents their ideals/interests as individuals or a company; however, a scan of a newspaper front page is not really needed to understand that unless the imagery of the page itself is/was the subject of critical commentary by others (i.e., reliable sources) at the time.

The fact that the Wisconsin State Journal endorsed McCarthy doesn't requiring seeing this particular scan to be understand; the article content and sources cited are sufficient for that. Moreover, the claim made in the rationale that seeing this image decisively demonstrates the between the two is like trying to argue WP:THOUSANDWORDS in favor of non-free use. There's no really sourced critical commentary anywhere in the article of that particular front page and how it decisively demonstrates anything; so, the context for non-free use required by NFCC#8 is lacking. Any interpretation of the image needs to be supported by citations to reliable sources stating this is how others interpreted the image; otherwise, it's nothing more that a little image-based WP:OR. I could possibly see this type of non-free use being justified if other regional or national papers where discussing this particular front page as part of their commentary on McCarthy, the election or even the paper at the time or since that time, but that doesn't appear to be the case at all. So, it'S seems more that acceptable as a free equivalent to simply quite and cite the particular headline appearing on the page per WP:FREER. Suggest delete, unless the NFCC#8 issue is satisfactorily addressed. -- Marchjuly (talk) 03:18, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

I'm a new user and feeling my way here. It seems that articles on newspapers include a characteristic front page image at the top as a standard (see Wisconsin State Journal, The New York Times, Chicago Tribune), that's what made me think it might be permissible to include such images in some cases. I'm not completely sure the Wisconsin State Journal does indeed have a copyright on this image. This entire area seems to be a rat's nest, but my understanding is that in order to assert copyright in this situation, the paper has to have asserted it in the paper on the day of publication. I searched the microfilm at the Wisconsin Historical Society rigorously and could't find such an assertion in the paper on that day. In any event, I argue that the image in question adds materially to understanding the issue at hand, which is the full-throated support this paper gave to McCarthy throughout his political career. They did not matter-of-factly endorse the man, they were virtually part of his campaign. This is the point the image makes and that a textual explanation will make less well. MikeB17 (talk) 15:59, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Delete: Violates NFCC#1: as mainly text, it is replaceable by mere descriptive text, quotes, or paraphrasing. The image itself is not the subject of commentary, even if the information conveyed is. "The newspaper endorsed McCarthy." No need to bend copyright. --Animalparty! (talk) 09:38, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
If that's the deal, it would be good to see an explanation of why it's the norm for articles on newspapers to have a random front page image at the top purely as a matter of decoration (see Wisconsin State Journal, The Sacramento Bee, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). -- MikeB17 (talk) 13:42, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

File:Madonna - another suitcase in another hall.ogg[edit]

File:Madonna - another suitcase in another hall.ogg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Alecsdaniel (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Fails WP:NFCC#8 as the sample and rationale does not illustrate why it would be required to aid in reader's understanding of the article. —IB [ Poke ] 09:11, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

  • Keep As half the article is about Madonna's version which was released as a single. Alecsdaniel (talk) 14:26, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
What makes it secondary to the original recording? If it not notable enough why doesn't the article just mention Madonna's version in passing instead of dedicating half the article to her version? Alecsdaniel (talk) 16:23, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Because readable content and non-free media content is not the same thing. Just because there is a bigger chunk of the Madonna content does not necessarily warrant an inclusion of a media in it. Please comment on the issue at hand. —IB [ Poke ] 18:33, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
That is nothing more than a subjective opinion. Madonna's song is not a mere footnote in the song's history. The song has two notable versions, both should have a fragment to represent them as seen with many other GA articles which deal with songs made famous in more than one version (Are You Lonesome Tonight? (song), It's All Coming Back to Me Now, Don't Cry for Me Argentina) or even non-GAs (I Will Always Love You). Alecsdaniel (talk) 18:23, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
Again, Madonna's version having more page space has nothing to do with the WP:NFCC failing of the sample. It fails WP:NFCC#8 which specifically mentions that its addition has of no significance to the readers understanding and removal is not detrimental. —IB [ Poke ] 15:28, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Uploader claims to own the copyright, and appears to be the subject of the photo. EXIF data seems to indicate the copyright is held by www.aestheticimages.net so WP:OTRS confirmation of copyright status would be needed. Whpq (talk) 03:33, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Footer[edit]

Today is January 17 2019. Put new nominations in Wikipedia:Files for discussion/2019 January 17 -- (new nomination)

If the current date's page has been started without the header, apply {{subst:Ffd log}} to the top of the day's page.

Please ensure "===January 17===" is at the very top of the new page so that internal page links from the main Files for discussion page (the one you're on now) work.

The page Wikipedia:Files for discussion/Today will always show today's log.
