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


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)
