Hints for the userEdit

I think this template should be enhanced by tips or hints on how to add the correct copyright tag to the image. As of now the user must guess what he is supposed todo, if he does not know already and has used only the license selector on the upload form sofar. Jklippel

That has been done. / Fred Chess 20:51, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Notifying the uploaderEdit

This template recommends putting {{subst:image source|Image:No license}} ~~~~ on the uploader's talk page. However, that template says "I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content" which is not the same as having no license. So, is there a better message template that can be used here? /Skagedal 10:55, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Please see Template_talk:Image source. Samulili 13:28, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
how about {{No tag message}}? -- Duesentrieb(?!) 14:12, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Internationalization templateEdit

Please could you change {{No license/languages}} to {{No license/lang}} in {{No license}}? Then {{No license/languages}} may be deleted. Thanks in advance,

14 days?Edit

Would it make sense to change the period of time to 14 days instead of 7? Commons users might not be as active as users on English Wikipedia, so I think 14 days is more reasonable. / Fred Chess 10:05, 5 May 2007 (UTC)



Please add the interwiki link [[ar:قالب:لا ترخيص]]. --Meno25 22:56, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Space puts the signature in a boxEdit

{{Editprotected}} Please remove the space from the line

:<small>{{subst:[[Template:Image source|image source]]|Image:{{PAGENAME}}}} <nowiki>~~~~

to notify the uploader.</nowiki>

Wrong message templateEdit

{{Edit protected}}

I just noticed that this template suggest you use "{{subst:image source|Image:No license}}~~~~" to notify the uploader. That doesn't seem quite right, surely it should say "{{subst:image license|Image:No license}}~~~~" instead. --Sherool (talk) 22:34, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

  Done Kwj2772 (msg) 08:35, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

And nothing happensEdit

Unless the copyright status is provided, the image will be deleted seven days after this template was added. But nothing happens. For example in File:MuseoHistoriaMilitarCastelló.jpg. The user alse haven't obtained any massages. In other cases the user is alerted by User:Filbot. Something did wrong here.

--Avron (talk) 18:22, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

This is because Filbot didn't place the message. The user himself placed the template probably because no valid license was selected at the upload form. Multichill (talk) 18:56, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
OK, but why does this template say 7 days but the file is still here?--Avron (talk) 19:12, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
Because the sysops haven't already deleted it. There's a backlog since from the first days of July (and we are almost at September). If you want, I can delete them all using a bot, but I think that's not a good idea.. is it? :-) --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 10:53, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Please to improve: szezői jogi to szerzői jogi. Thanks! OsvátA Palackposta 09:43, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

  Done I have made the change at {{No license since/hu}} here. --GeorgHHtalk   10:16, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

More descriptive deletion reasonEdit

When you click on the trash can, the default deletion reason is:

No license since {{{day|}}} {{{month|}}} {{{year|}}}

I propose changing this to be more explicit, in line with {{uwlsubst}}:

No license since {{{year|}}}-{{{month|}}}-{{{day|}}}. Please read the intro of [[COM:L]], about [[Commons:Essential information|essential information]] and about [[COM:CB#Internet_images|Internet images]]

It's a more helpful message –⁠moogsi (talk) 22:33, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

changes to English versionEdit

I did some corrections to the English and Polish versions, namely made it relevant to PD cases and replaced request to include permissions from the authors in the file description and asked for such permissions to be send to OTRS. Please correct if there is a way to make this paragraph even more clear and please correct other language versions. --Jarekt (talk) 20:50, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for resent improvements. How about the first sentence "This media file does not have sufficient information on its copyright status." How about "This media file does not have any required copyright tags indicating its copyright status."? That would be much less wishy-washy and get straight to the point of what is actually missing. --Jarekt (talk) 19:00, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

non-automated uploader notification instructionsEdit

There is a discussion about how detailed the displayed instructions how to notify uploaders without the default-activated Ajax gadget should be.
