Hello JWolf,

This is in regards to Image:MP050043.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 {{screenshot}} was not a usable tag for this image:

The tag {{screenshot}} is sort of a "fair use" claim; if the screenshot is being used in an article to comment on a website or video, the screenshot is often the only way to show what a website or video 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 03:00, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
