Hi Sourcefield,
Thank you for your contributions to Commons. It looks like a file you uploaded to Commons has an invalid entry indicated for its "Source" . It is important that the "Source" field, which is the record of where a file came from, be accurate and as machine-readable as possible so that others can verify its license and be able to reuse the file under the correct terms. Sources such as "Me", "Self" or "My camera" should be replaced with the template {{Own}}. {{Own}} is a localized (i.e., translated) template that adapts to the user's interface language. Sources such as "Google", "The Internet", etc. are not considered valid and may result in deletion of the file. If you did not generate the file yourself, then please be as specific as you can in identifying your source: ideally, this would be a stable link to the exact page the image or file came from, or the title, year, and page number of the book where you found it (a link to the website in general is not usually considered specific enough, nor is simply restating the name of the author).

NOTE: Please do not use this template directly! This is just for translation. Use {{Sourcefield}} instead!
