I like this template. It explains concisely what can be uploaded to Commons. / Fred Chess 08:59, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

It could do with a heading like most talk page templates have, though, don't you think? I suggest "Commons only accepts free content". LX (talk, contribs) 14:34, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I've added a header to it. / Fred J 15:43, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

As for the heading...[edit]

I don't think this template need auto-translated heading, since this isn't an automatic template - the user must place the list manually, so it's simpler to use the add/+ button. If you have other suggestions - welcome... Yuval Y § Chat § 15:01, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

broken using multiple files[edit]

I assume this template was intended to handle either single or multiple files (if not, it probably should). As you can see below, using more than one file breaks the display....

Hello Speedywhat,

the following content you uploaded is not free and therefore has been or will soon be deleted:

The Wikimedia Commons (this website) only hosts media files which can be used for any purpose, including:

  • use in any work, regardless of content
  • creation of derivative works
  • commercial use
  • free distribution

See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on Wikimedia Commons, and Commons:Image casebook for some specific examples. Some other Wikimedia projects have different licensing policies. For example, the English Wikipedia allows fair use of sounds and photographs. This is not the case on Wikimedia Commons; "fair use" materials are not acceptable here.

Please make sure that you only upload works you have created yourself, those which are out of copyright, or those for which you have the required permission for the work to be used in all the ways described above. Please note that derivative works of copyrighted material are also considered copyrighted. Again, please read through Commons:Licensing, which is quite crucial to understanding how Wikimedia Commons works. Thanks for your contribution, and please do leave me a message if you have further questions.

  • It's still broken, and probably has been since this edit (and similar to other language versions) in 2010. Peter James (talk) 14:31, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
