Wikipedia:Files for discussion

  (Redirected from Wikipedia:FFD)

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  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.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

  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 April 19}} 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 April 19}} 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 April 19}} 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 participationEdit

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 discussionsEdit

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

Old discussionsEdit

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

File:Game-of-Thrones-S06-E08-No-One.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by TedEdwards (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Same reason as last time; this article not having a copyrighted screenshot of the episode was a prerequisite to its being promoted to GA, and we seem to be moving away from such images in TV episode articles in general. In this case in particular, it should need to go through GAR before any new images are added. Hijiri 88 (やや) 04:19, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Comment: I added the image after The Optimistic One requested it last year (see here). If there is a problem with having a non-free image on this article (of which I can see the arguments), there really does need to be a WP:TV discussion about the use of non-free images in across all shows, I think Hijiri88. I mean, if removing the image is what it takes for an article to be a good article, that suggests to me that having non-free images like this on any episode article is not a good idea, or only on a very few. I'm posting a link to the good article review in question here. --TedEdwards 12:13, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
Technically, what makes an article a GA is meeting the requests of the GA reviewer. It's a severely flawed system, but it's what we have at the moment. Hijiri 88 (やや) 12:21, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
O.K. But I still think starting a discussion of WP:TV could still be a good idea, so I'm wondering what you think. --TedEdwards 12:26, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
Comment: Every other episode has a non-free image, why is it only this episode that gets penalised for having one? The Optimistic One (talk) 21:06, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
@The Optimistic One: WP:OSE. Every other episode should not have a non-free image; the other episode articles either are not GAs, or their GA review was not thorough enough. Articles on episodes of other shows do not seem to have such images: I recall discussing this and hearing as much from someone else on one of the GOT talk pages two years ago, and just now clicked a bunch of links on List of Breaking Bad episodes that bore this out. Hijiri 88 (やや) 08:51, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete, again. It's really not OK that this keeps getting re-uploaded. And we don't need yet another discussion about this: there's no automatic "entitlement" to include a non-free screenshot in episode articles. It's possible that GOT is lagging behind.

  • Do we need, and can we justify, two non-free images on this article ffor "identification"? "Precedent"' has been cited in edit summaries: [1], but I thought it was worth raising the question here for clarification. Pinging Guliolopez, an editor who I greatly respect, and sincerely hope is not offended by my raising this, as concerned. -- Begoon 13:05, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
    • Hi. If both images had the exact same purpose ("identification of the subject"), then that would perhaps not be justifiable. However, before this more recent version was uploaded (replacing a perfectly viable alternative with a more complete FUR rationale IMO), the FUR purpose given was not just "identification". But also to "illustrate the organization's intended branding message". Two crests/logos with the exact same purpose are perhaps not justifiable. But two university logos/crests with different purposes? (One for "identifying the subject", another for "understanding the branding message"?) In my view this is justifiable. And, apparently, has historically been seen as justifiable/appropriate on many dozens (hundreds?) of university infoboxes. Where two FUR images (one crest and one logo) appear together. (The articles/infoboxes on Princeton, Harvard, U of London, Columbia and many many others all include two FUR images. Without question or concern. I'm not sure why we would apply a more stringent interpretation of WP:NFC#CS here. Not least when, per WP:NFC#CS, the "single item" criterion only applies when the FUR purpose given is "identification". Which isn't the case here. Or, at least, wasn't until very recently.) Coupled with the fact that these are not commercial/monetizable images, I do not see why we would not/could not justify retaining both. Guliolopez (talk) 14:00, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
      If we're comfortable with all that as a reason to retain multiple non-free images then I'm happy with that. It didn't initially seem justifiable to me, hence the question. I'd welcome further opinions, though. -- Begoon 14:20, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete per WP:NFCC#3a. The emblem is included in the logo. — JJMC89(T·C) 00:20, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
    Comment - If that's the case, then why not delete the logo instead? And, for that matter, are we saying that the logos (or crests) of Princeton, Harvard, London and other similar Infobox elements are to be brought into the scope of this FfD? (I am happy to extend the scope if we think there's a misapplication of policy to the elements of these University Infoboxes - that therefore requires a broader discussion.) Guliolopez (talk) 08:55, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
    If the emblem is preferred over the logo, that's OK with me. I guess they could be, or a bundled discussion of others could be started after this one closes. — JJMC89(T·C) 02:07, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Incorrect photograph Mileshewitt (talk) 15:10, 14 April 2019 (UTC) This photograph should be deleted; it purports to depict the British music journalist Ian MacDonald (b.1948) but actually depicts the science fiction author Ian McDonald (b.1960).

File:USB.pngEdit

File:USB.png (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by JR98664 (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

This is a derivative of a logo whose use is licensed by usb.org and probably under copyright. Therefore, the uploader's license is likely not correct. I believe it would be better for us to use a copy of the real logo if we are going to have the image, and I don't think that the image adds much to the Glossary of machine vision page where it is used.  ★  Bigr Tex 19:26, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

File:Proud as a Peacock (1980 logo).jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Crooow (notify | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

Screenshot of one of two versions of the logo for the Proud as a Peacock advertising campaign by NBC. This second image, with no critical commentary or even mention of it outside of the caption, does not "significantly increase readers' understanding of the article topic" and therefore violates WP:NFCCP#8. The boilerplate rationale template also gives me pause, as I doubt that "The logo may be obtained from Proud as a Peacock," nor does the purpose statement about identifying the brand make any sense.  ★  Bigr Tex 20:20, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

I initially uploaded the images stating that I had permission from the author to use them on wikipedia. I received a message from Wikipedia saying that this was not satisfactory. I then contacted the author and I asked them to email wikipedia which he did giving permission to use them. It is clear that permission has been given. I don't know what else I need to do!.Racingmanager (talk) 11:11, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

File:GE9X cutaway.jpgEdit

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)

  • Keep 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)
You and Marc Lacoste above seem to refer to criteria #1 (no free equivalent). I am talking about criteria #8. See WP:NFC#CS. Ariadacapo (talk) 07:44, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
