i18n of the template and enhancement[edit]

I prepared the i18n for this template. Example:

Orange copyright.svg Warning: One or more elements in this image are protected by copyright

Some parts of this file are not fully free but believed to be de minimis for this work. Derivatives of this file which focus more on the non-free element(s) may not qualify as de minimis and may be copyright violations. As a direct consequence it might be needed to review the copyright status if you crop the picture.
The reason given is: (no reason given).

The Dark Knight movie poster - censored copyright.jpg


I rewrote it to looks like the No-FoP template, as the case it similar.
I am for deprecating and removing the 'reason' parameter:

  • It is not translatable easily.
  • this template is not here to justify the DM rationale but to inform the reuser.

I added a parameter for a link a possible DR in case the DM was previously discussed and the file kept. Categorisation in Category:De minimis without reason should also be removed. Esby (talk) 11:34, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

The reason is translatable via {{LangSwitch}} or {{en}}, {{de}} etc, isn't it? Rd232 (talk) 12:25, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
That supposes you translate every reason used for each file. That still does not make the file 'verified' or 'safe' for the re-user. Imo, problematic cases are to be handled via DR, not by a reason parameter. Esby (talk) 13:19, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
Also most of the reason argument could be formulated in most cases as 'copyrighted element is not the subject of the photography, placement is incidental etc.' Esby (talk) 13:24, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
I activated the i18n and kept the reason parameter. Esby (talk) 23:30, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
The reason parameter doesn't seem to work at the moment. If it's going to be removed, where's the consensus discussion and why is it still documented at de minimis/doc? Thanks. -- Trevj (talk) 10:13, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
it should work, gonna check the code. Esby (talk) 10:27, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
Fixed it, named parameters must be passed as numbered parameters with autotranslate. Gonna adjust the documentation. Esby (talk) 10:51, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
Brilliant! Thanks very much. -- Trevj (talk) 15:04, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Layout update[edit]

@Esby, Rd232, Trevj: Hi there! I refreshed this template a little, so everything takes less place and it's more illustrative:

  • the box width is 100%
  • there's no <br /> after every sentence
  • I also added an image (from COM:De minimis) with poster marked with (c) symbol

Cheers! --Rezonansowy (talk) 22:17, 19 December 2015 (UTC)

Remove <code> tags[edit]

There is no good reason why this template should use <code> for its parameter output. This violates HTML semantics. 80.221.159.67 08:24, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
