Please experiment in the sandbox
Thanks for experimenting with the Commons. Your test worked, and has been reverted or removed; please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do.

- There's a thing call copyright. If you made a game yourself, but someone steals an image out of your game and claims it's his, will you be happy about it? You cannot take someone's image (whether it's a screenshot or something else), the creator has the creative originality that is rightfully his. Unless he/she gives permission for you to use it, you cannot take it. These are referred as non-free media because they're not free to be used anywhere.

Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content, that is, images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose. For details on what is acceptable, please read Commons:Licensing.

Wikimedia Commons has a specific scope
Thank you for your contributions. Your image or other content 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 media files including photographs, diagrams, animations, music, spoken text and video clips. 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. 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. Sdrtirs (talk) 01:15, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Fair use questions
Hi! You are wondering what is fair use. You can see en:Fair use for more information. Basically, is using a copyrighted media (images, sound, video...) without permission of the copyrighted owner only for critical comment and educational use. Commons doesn't allow fair use. English language Wikipedia, for example, allows fair use under some circumstances described on en:Wikipedia:Fair use. Commons doesn't allow fair use because Wikimedia Commons meant to be a place for free content and fair use is not free. Fair use images on Commons will be deleted. I hope I had explain it simple to you because this is something a bit complicated. Regards, Sdrtirs (talk) 00:43, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

|This media was probably deleted.|
|A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:NikolaTeslaquoted.jpg, was missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status. The file probably has been deleted. If you've got all required information, request undeletion providing this information and the link to the concerned file (
If you created the content yourself, enter
If someone else created the content, or if it is based on someone else's work, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so.
There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. 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.
