Regarding your edit to List of furry LiveJournal communities[edit]

Hi, and welcome to WikiFur! Just a heads up, your edit to List of furry LiveJournal communities was reverted, because the page in question is specifically for LiveJournal communities. That being the case, if you'd like to contribute to the Florida Furs article or start a new article on Orlando, be our guest!

Also, for future reference, our help section and policies can be found over here. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. --Giza 19:17, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

No problem. That's one of the strengths about the Wiki, anyone can add to, edit, or revise an article. --Giza 19:24, 29 May 2006 (UTC)


Hello Blazedarkarma,

This is in regards to Image:Blueneko.jpg. 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.

Why {{fursona}} was not a usable tag for this image:

The way I see it is that {{fursona}} is sort of a "fair use" claim; a fursona drawing is a like a "logo" for that furry, so a low-resolution graphic of a fursona drawing is the only way to illustrate what the fursona looks like. Pictures of fursuits are not unique in that way; anyone can take a picture of one.

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 07:29, 24 November 2006 (UTC)


Image:Latinvixengroup.jpg needs a copyright tag, same as previous image. --Rat 08:28, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
