Disputed non-free use rationale for File:MGMRecord45.jpgEdit

 

Thank you for uploading File:MGMRecord45.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator seven days after the file was tagged in accordance with section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Fats Domino recordingsEdit

Hello,

Based on many years of painstaking work on the compilation of discographies as part of a team of enthusiasts of classic rock and roll, I suggest you get acquainted with my first wiki project. If successful, it is planned to create similar pages for Little Richard, Carl Perkins, Charlie Rich, Larry Williams, Jerry Lee Lewis, Esquerita... I apologize for my poor English and would be very grateful for any corrections and improvements to the style, as well as suggestions for improving the structure of the page. Cheers and rock on!

Proposed deletion of Van Dyke RecordsEdit

 

The article Van Dyke Records has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Sources tag for a decade, no sources since creation in 2003. I see a paragraph or so in a very small number of very specialised publications, but probably not enough to meet WP:ORG or to get this beyond a stub.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Now's the time, if you've been sitting on secret sources for this article.... EddieHugh (talk) 20:56, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

Hey, @EddieHugh:, I have sources for this. Would you mind sending me the "specialty publications" you found, just in case you've got something I don't? Infrogmation, you got anything? Thanks! 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 22:24, 5 May 2020 (UTC)
Just the ones from looking at google books. These were probably the ones I saw: [1] and [2]. I found only 1 mention in the books that I have, and that was a passing mention: nothing worth including. EddieHugh (talk) 16:45, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! Those two books are known to me, and contain substantial information not found in the Google preview, therefore used. I also knew of some information in Record Research. There's an article in New Amberola Graphic, but unfortunately I'm unable to access it, and I doubt it's an issue I have. Google says it's in issues 138-179, somewhere. Great. Thanks Google. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 17:32, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for rescuing it with the sources that you have. Google's often not much use with those sorts of details; its 'publication' dates for books often look more likely to be the dates of the uploads to their servers. Anyway, I'll leave Infrogmation's talk page – thanks for hosting! EddieHugh (talk) 21:13, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

New article: Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-OrléansEdit

HELLO, I WANTED TO INCORPORATE ABOUT HOW CAN I UPLOAD THE PHOTOS YOU'VE DELETED THE PROPER WAY. I DO NOT WANT TO VIOLATE ANY TERMS OF WIKIPEDIA.

  • Hi. Wikimedia Commons is only for free licensed (by the author/photographer) or public domain (copyright expired) photos. Just know that most images seen on websites won't fit these criteria - unless the website explicitly states a specific free license, assume it is under copyright. See Commons:Licensing for an overview. Note that English language Wikipedia can accept a limited amount of copyrighted content within certain restrictions if there is no PD or free licensed alternative image that illustrates the subject; see Wikipedia:Non-free content.
