Are we quite sure about the date of The King's Birthday? As I recall, there's a quip about Blackadder being a Privy Councillor, but "soon to be a privy attendant if Cromwell has his way", which puts it *before* the Civil War... Daibhid C, 22:43 13 April 2005 (UTC)
Removed sentence from list of BlackaddersEdit
(It is possible that Captain the Lord Blackadder from The Army Years is the same modern day Lord Blackadder seen in 'Back and Forth, although no mention of military rank is made there.)
Removed this, as it is virtually impossible. The Army Years is set in WWI, probably 1917, while Back and Forth is set in 2000, thus making it more likely that Blackadder from Back and Forth is his grandson. Bjelleklang - talk 11:25, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
I strongly suggest the use of a picture of one of the more recognisable blackadder incarnations on the Edmund Blackadder template. While I appreciate the original Blackadder is held in high regard by cretain users on wikipedia, the first series is not highly thought of in general public circles. Also, the first blackadder does not represent the more familiar characteristics of the Blackadders (just look at his stupid face compared to the more condecending, refined look of the other 3). I personally would champion Blackadder II who seems the most recognisable. His image is used in the main wikipedia article and was the primary icon used in the Greatest Sitcom series.--Crestville 19:48, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Prince Edmund.jpgEdit
Image:Prince Edmund.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
Image copyright problem with Image:BA2adder.jpgEdit
The image Image:BA2adder.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check
- That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
- That this article is linked to from the image description page.
The following images also have this problem:
