Background[edit]

A little background regarding the image in question, an artist conception of the Sea Control Ship (SCS). The SCS was a proposed helicopter carrier from the 1970s. The SCS program was never authorized by the U.S. Congress, nor funding procured, nor construction contracts signed as reported by GlobalSecurity.org. Thus, the image in question was generated by the U.S. Navy, and not some third party. In fact, this image was shown on page 44 ("Sea Control" by Lt. Cmdr. Paul N. Mullane, USN) of the March 1973 issue of Naval Aviation News magazine, a joint U.S. Navy publication of the Chief of Naval Operation (CNO), the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), and the U.S. Navy Recruiting Command (NRC). Therefore, the image in question is a work of a sailor or employee of the U.S. Navy, taken or made during the course of the person's official duties. As a work of the U.S. federal government, the image is in the public domain. I have updated this image information to reflect and clarify this fact.Marcd30319 (talk) 13:31, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Background[edit]

The image in question is the book cover of Around the World Submerged: The Voyage of the Triton by Captain Edward L. Beach, USN (ret.), who wrote an account of Operation Sandblast, the first submerged around-the-world voyage by the U.S. Navy's nuclear-powered submarine USS Triton (SSRN-586) in 1960. The stated licensing is:

© The copyright holder of this file allows anyone to use it for any purpose, provided that the copyright holder is properly attributed. Redistribution, derivative work, commercial use, and all other use is permitted.

This is appropriate for a book cover. The fact that the late Captain Beach was a U.S. naval officer had no affect on this attribution. I have revised the Summary to better reflect this attribution. Marcd30319 (talk) 12:00, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Better source request for Image:Combined Task Force 151 - 071022-N-0841E-064.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Combined Task Force 151 - 071022-N-0841E-064.jpg. You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the help desk or me at my talkpage. Thank you. High Contrast (talk) 17:59, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

Fair use is not permitted on Commons. The use of works in the public domain cannot be restricted to encyclopedic contexts (and such restrictions are also not permitted at Commons; see Commons:Licensing). The concept of fair use implies that the work in question is not in the public domain. Thus, the permission statement you provided for this file contradicts itself in several ways. Please provide a verifiable source (you've been repeatedly informed of the importance of this) and adjust the permission statement so that it actually makes sense.

Thanks for uploading Image:TritonDisposal.jpg. You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

Thank you for your contributions. Your image or other content, Operation Ocean Safari, was recently deleted, or will soon be deleted, in accordance with our process and policies, because it was not, or is not, within our scope. Please review our project scope, but in short, Commons is targeted at educational media files including photographs, diagrams, animations, music, spoken text and video clips. The expression “educational” is to be understood according to its broad meaning of “providing knowledge; instructional or informative”. Wikimedia Commons does not contain text articles like encyclopedia articles, textbooks, news, word definitions and such. Each of these other kinds of content have their own projects: Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikisource, Wikinews, Wiktionary and Wikiquote.

If the content seems to fit the scope of one of those other projects, please consider contributing it there. Otherwise, consider an alternative outlet. If you think that the deletion was in error because the contribution really was in scope, you can appeal it at Commons:Undeletion requests, giving a reason why it fits our scope to help others evaluate the matter. Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

Hello, Marcd30319!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

  • This image in question was found on the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command web site, and it is identified as such: "This is an Official U.S. Navy Web Site. GILS# 002176." Also, please note this web site's Privacy Statement which states that "this is a U.S. Government Web Site." I do not know how much more clear it can be stated that this image in question is a free, public domain image. I have edited the talk page for this file, and I have removed the notice.

This media may be deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:LCAC 2104 during Dawn Blitz 2012.jpeg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.) Thank you.

  • I inadvertently omitted the photo caption for the image in question which states clearly: "Japanese hovercraft landing in Southern California. Department of Defense photo." I thought the captain was embedded into the photo itself. Sorry for the obmission and good call on your part! Thanks! Marcd30319 (talk) 18:37, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello, it would be nice if you could give the files you load up more informative names, because it makes it easier for others to find the files. I named the complete photo File:USS George H.W. Bush (CVN-77) in the Atlantic Ocean 2013 (aft view).JPG. Thank you and Cheers Cobatfor (talk) 19:43, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
