This image was kept as being of use for potential projects, such as for documenting the use of firearms by minors in the 50ies:

Kept per Mike.lifeguard as this image is properly described and categorized, making a use within the Wikimedia projects not unlikely, e.g. for documenting the use of firearms by minors in the 50ies. --AFBorchert (talk) 11:25, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Wikimedia Commons has a specific scope[edit]

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 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, if the image in question is deemed inappropriate, then so be it. Will Dockery (talk) 17:24, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Image Deletions[edit]

Thanks for the notices on images deleted and improper... as time goes by I'm learning what should and shouldn't be archived here! Will Dockery (talk) 17:14, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Return[edit]

I'm surprised I've been away as a regular here for around seven years, was pointed back here and in the midst of deleting some out-of-date notices, decided to return as an active contributor. I look forward to communicating with all of you in the coming months. Will Dockery (talk) 21:29, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
