Commons:WikiProject Public Domain/Commons public domain review notification
this is a message from Wikimedia Commons to let you know that a review of the public domain status of a large group of files is under way. This may mean many files need to be deleted from Commons (if your project has uploads and a fair use policy, some files may be transferable here). Please consider visiting Commons to help with the review: in general, more information about individual files means more files can be kept on Commons.
- The central Commons page for the review is [[:commons:Commons:WikiProject Public Domain/[REVIEW SUBPAGE]]].
- The main Commons category of files needing review is [[:commons:Category:[REVIEW CATEGORY]]].
- The main Commons category of files that need to be deleted from Commons is [[:commons:Category:[DELETE CATEGORY]]].
Please advertise this review within your project as widely as you think appropriate.
If you have any questions, please visit [[:commons:Commons talk:WikiProject Public Domain/[REVIEW SUBPAGE]]]. Thank you for reading this message. On behalf of commons:Commons:WikiProject Public Domain, ~~~~.
