Replaceable non-free use File:MaxEuwe.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:MaxEuwe.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of non-free use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of non-free use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{Di-replaceable non-free use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable non-free use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification, per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Red-tailed hawk (nest) 20:21, 31 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Image copyright problem with File:Bird scuptures.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading File:Bird scuptures.jpg.

This image is a derivative work, containing an "image within an image". Examples of such images would include a photograph of a sculpture, a scan of a magazine cover, or a screenshot of a computer game or movie. In each of these cases, the rights of the creator of the original image must be considered, as well as those of the creator of the derivative work.

While the image description page states the source and copyright status of the derivative work, it only names the creator of the original work without specifying the status of their copyright over the work.

Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the original image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other derivative works, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. Thanks again for your cooperation. — Ирука13 23:37, 31 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello. If you think this file is no longer useful for Wikipedia, set template {{db-author}} on its description page, please. — Ирука13 13:52, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Learn something "new" every day[edit]

Thanks for the revert. It's an oddity in my opinion, TTY's aren't made or used any more so past tense seems appropriate, but it's not a hill to die on. cheers. anastrophe, an editor he is. 21:39, 8 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, but the manual of style says to talk about them in the present tense. They still exist but I don't know if any are still used. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 23:45, 8 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

From teleprinter: "Teleprinters are still widely used in the aviation industry (see AFTN and airline teletype system),[3] and variations called Telecommunications Devices for the Deaf (TDDs) are used by the hearing impaired for typed communications over ordinary telephone lines. " Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 00:01, 9 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

True indeed, though I'd be surprised if they are actual Teletype Model 33's - though strangers things have been known to occur, like the US missile silos using 8" floppy disks all they way up to 2019!! cheers. anastrophe, an editor he is. 01:15, 9 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
