Hi there, Altivo. I saw your addition of Pegasus - welcome to WikiFur! Let me know if you need any help not already provided. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 09:36, 25 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Thanks! I saw that it hadn't been done yet and thought I'd just make a start. I'll see about adding more as I get a feel for the process. The online help looks pretty decent. --altivo 11:38, 25 Nov 2005 (UTC)


Hello Altivo,

This is in regards to Image:Pegasus2.gif. It has not been tagged with a copyright status. This can be a complicated area, so I can try to help if you need any. The Wikipedia Image use policy may give some background, but it isn't policy here.

To deal with this image, there are a few choices:

  • If you are the copyright holder, release it under a free license, for example:
  • If you are asserting that this image is usable under fair use, add an appropriate fair use tag. A very basic summary is that fair use is used for commentary, criticism and review on the image when no free image could be used instead. Some fair use tags are:
    • Logos: {{logo}}
    • Covers: {{Cover}}
    • Comic panels: {{Comic-panel}}
  • If the image is already under a free license, provide information on the license, and tag the image if you can.
  • If you would like the image to be deleted, ask any administrator

To see a list of current copyright tags available on WikiFur, see Category:Image copyright tags If the copyright status is not resolved, the image may be deleted.

Unless you have a question for me specifically, I'd prefer responses on the page for the image. --Rat 08:48, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, but this sort of legalism is beyond my understanding. The image was taken from a "copyright free" clip art collection. It appears in a number of these collections, none identify the source. You can find it online here: as the first image that appears. I have no idea how you want me to "attribute" this. --Altivo 12:21, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
Well, telling us that it was taken from a "copyright free" clip art collection is a good start. We didn't automatically know that just from the current description of "Simple clip art representation of flying horse." For all we knew, the clip art was "royalty free", but only usable by the people who bought a particular office package. The point of it all is that at some day we may really have a need to know exactly what its status is (consider what would happen if we tried to publish WikiFur in printed form), and certainly others wishing to use our content will want to know this as well. It's not just being picky. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 12:28, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
I don't think it's compatible with our license. states(emphasis mine):
Media Elements and Templates. You may have access to media images, clip art, animations, sounds, music, shapes, video clips, and templates associated with the service. If so, you may copy and use these images, clip art, animations, sounds, music, shapes, video clips, and templates identified for such use in documents and projects that you create. You may distribute those documents and projects non-commercially. If you wish to use these media elements or templates for any other purpose, go to to learn whether that use is allowed.
While states that Non-Commercial licenses aren't allowed. --Rat 12:41, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
I'm a writer, not a lawyer. Do what you wish. I'm sorry, but I have no patience with nor interest in this sort of thing.--Altivo 16:53, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
