Edit Request[edit]

Not a very big deal here, but I can't fix it myself. The first box, FAIR USE, says:

Commons DOES NOT ALLOW FAIR USE. Fair-use images at English Wikipedia, and other project that allow fair use, must NOT be transferred here.


Project should be plural, as "projects". Example:

Commons DOES NOT ALLOW FAIR USE. Fair-use images at English Wikipedia, and other projects that allow fair use, must NOT be transferred here.

Thanks in advance. Alex43223 16:37, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

Information template[edit]

Could someone please add the

{{Information
|Description=
|Source=
|Date=
|Author=
|other_versions=
}}

somewhere on the page or even better directly into the Summary box. As it is now the images from other Wikipedias are usually the ones with the least information. /Lokal_Profil 22:36, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. Just a small detail. "Source: self-made" should probably be just "Source:" and similar for "Author= MyName (~~~)". /Lokal_Profil 11:29, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
Right. Platonides 09:39, 10 August 2007 (UTC)
How exactly are you guys using this form?? Use the CommonsHelper! it will give you the template to paste in. pfctdayelise (说什么?) 12:41, 10 August 2007 (UTC)
I've found that a lot of people opt not to use CommonsHelper and for them having the Information template here becomes useful. I myself never use CommonsHelper since it (or at least used to) adds in a lot of unusefull information and makes statements hinting that the upploader is the author etc., tends to love overcategorisation etc.
BTW, thanks Platonides for fixing the source part. /Lokal_Profil 08:32, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
Never mind, i blindy pasted it from another uploadtext :-) Personally, i prefer using CommonsHelper and edit the text i don't like. Platonides 13:50, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
