Wikipedia:Files for discussion

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.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

  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 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=2018 January 18}} 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=2018 January 18}} 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=2018 January 18}} 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

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

Nominations should be processed for closing after being listed for 7 days following the steps here.

Old discussions

The following discussions are more than 7 days old and are pending processing by an administrator:

Clear Copy-right violation. The image has the copyright of the Indian Railways which does not release the image under any license. Adamgerber80 (talk) 07:12, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Not 'clear', but delete anyway. I think the copyright here originally belongs to Anant Singh (given the history of this image), but it's not licensed for WP use. Andy Dingley (talk) 10:23, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
Note: This was uploaded here by the user after it was deleted from commons as a copyright violation. MilborneOne (talk) 15:24, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
MilborneOne I was involved in both these deletions. The user has persistently tried to upload these photos even after being informed that they are Copy-right violations. On the contrary they left a note on my talk page User_talk:Adamgerber80#Love_me_so_much? that they can still upload anything and their latest upload is also a copy.

File:Locomotive WAG 12.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Diligentemu (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Does not meet criteria 1 of the NFCC since there exists a similar variant of the locomotive on Wikimedia commons at [1] which is in use in the article. In my opinion, this image does not depict anything significantly different since it is a small model and also adds very little additional understanding for a reader compared to the other freely available image. Adamgerber80 (talk) 12:55, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

I would oppose deletion on the claimed grounds because "there's an image of a different thing that looks a bit like it" just isn't a good enough reason to fail NFCC #1 ! OTOH, these images were summarily deleted at Commons under "licensing", so maybe someone knows something I don't. Andy Dingley (talk) 14:20, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
The Commons versions have been deleted because although a photograph of this model might be acceptable, what we have here is a scree grab from a copyrighted video - and so it ought to go. Andy Dingley (talk) 22:26, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
The uploader has tried to upload various variants of this and similar to images on commons that have been deleted as copyright violations. MilborneOne (talk) 15:23, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the debate. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page (such as the media's talk page or in a deletion review). No further edits should be made to this section.

I don't think this image is unique enough for copyright in the United States, but I'm not sure. If not, then the {{Information}} and {{PD-logo}} tags should be used instead of the ones currently on the file. Steel1943 (talk) 16:31, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

  • @Steel1943: Hello. I have search it up and I could find evidence of Samsung's trademark application with the European Trade Mark and Design Network for Bixby’s logo. Thanks! Here attached is the URL I have found. https://www.neowin.net/news/logo-for-samsungs-bixby-ai-assistant-shows-up-in-trademark-filing Cheers - Wefk423 (talk) 5 January 2018 (UTC)
    • @Wefk423: Thanks for your prompt response in the matter. I'm going to assume that you don't know of what I'm about to say as I had to learn this as well: Copyrights and trademarks are not the same thing. What I'm questioning is whether or not the image itself is artistically unique enough to be eligible for copyright protection in the United States. My primary question on this is whether or not the shapes in the logo are original and unique enough to make the image eligible for copyright. (If I recall, a good place to find more information about copyrighted eligibility for images can be found at Commons:Threshold of originality.) Steel1943 (talk) 18:14, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
      • @Steel1943: Thanks for the info, I did mixed up the two phrases. Do hope other users could identify this case. Thanks for your response and contribution. Cheers - Wefk423 (talk) 6 January 2018 (UTC)
Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion and clearer consensus.
Relisting comment: I'm not willing to making a call on this one. More input would be nice, otherwise needs to be closed as "no consensus." Better to be "safe than sorry."
Please add new comments below this notice. Thanks, Killiondude (talk) 23:37, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

File:Bernardo Brusca.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by DonCalo (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

This file is licensed as {{PD-Italy}}, but it's copyright status in the US is unclear. This was discussed at WP:MCQ#File:Bernardo Brusca.jpg where it was suggested that the file is likely PD in Italy, but not in the US. I'm pretty sure this means that the file needs to be treated as non-free content on Engosh Wikipedia. If that's the case, then the file is lacking the non-free use rationale required by WP:NFCC#10c which means it can possibly be tagged for speedy deletion per WP:F6.

The reason I've started this discussion is because even if a rationale is provided, I'm not sure it would be valid per WP:JUSTONE given the way the file is currently being used in Giovanni Brusca. Non-free photos of deceased individuals are generally allowed to be used as the primary means of identification in the main infobox or at the top of stand-alone articles about the person depicted in the photo, but they are much harder to justify when used in other ways. This is a photo of the father of Brusca and the context for using it required by WP:NFCC#8 is lacking: simply wanting the reader to see what Brusca's father looked like is not enough of a justification in my opinion. So, unless it can be shown that this is PD in both Italy and the US: or it's non-free use in the Brusca article or some other article can be justified per WP:NFCCP, I suggest delete for this file. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:07, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Non-free images of highway signs being used in List of British Columbia provincial highways. Each of the files is being used in a stand-alone article about the highways in question as the primary means of identification in the main infobox. This type of decorative usage in more general list articles, however, is almost never allowed per WP:NFLISTS and WP:NFTABLES because the context required by WP:NFCC#8 is almost never provided and the usage is more decorative than not. The files were removed per WP:NFCCE for lacking the non-free use rationales required by WP:NFCC#10c. Rationales have since been added for two of the three articles, but the primary justification for their use as explained at User talk:Fhsig13#Non-free image use is that they are they are significant to this particular page as well as a bit of WP:OTHERIMAGE and WP:NOBODYCOMPLAINED. I believe the rationales were added in good-faith; I just think this type of non-free use cann be justified per current policy and moreover appear to just be copied-and-pasted ones which don7t really sepcifically address the particular ways the files are being used. Suggest keep for the stand-alone articles where the files are being used and remove from the list article.

However, there might be some question as to whether these files need to be treated as non-free content to begin with. If it's possible to convert them to {{PD-Canada}} as some of the other files used in the article are licensed, then there would be no longer any non-free concerns and the files could be used. It should be noted though that a file such as File:British Columbia Yellowhead Highway 16 3.png is almost certainly not "own owrk", which is something requiring further discussion from Commons. -- Marchjuly (talk) 06:08, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
