Reading groups[edit]

Candyangel43, welcome to Wikiversity. I'm wondering whether you might be interested in turning your Nella Larsen "Quicksand" page into a type of reading group, see: Portal:Reading_groups. Countrymike 07:10, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Candyangel143, take a look at some of the Reading groups available through the list on Portal:Reading_groups. You can also add the [[Category:Reading groups]] category to your page which will list your page as a reading group. Mostly it's just about trying to engage others to read the text then discuss using the Talk pages. Some information on the text would be nice as well. See: Ivan_Illich:_Deschooling_Society for an example of one way to structure a group, but feel free to invent others. Countrymike 02:01, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

image uploads[edit]

Hello, good work on the learning projects you are creating here. I just had a couple questions about the images that you uploaded. Usually, book covers like Image:14989592.jpg are copyrighted. It might be possible to use this under fair use but the current license for the uploaded image states that it is GFDL. Are you sure about this? The upload Image:Bronson alcott.jpg is also listed as GFDL, but it looks like this might actually be Template:PD-old. Could you do me a favor and edit the image description pages to indicate where the images are from so we can verify which license applies? I modified the description page for Image:Zz author1.png because there is an identical image at [1] and the webpage clearly states that the material there is copyright ZZ Packer. That image will need to be deleted unless we can verify that it can be freely used on wikiversity. Thanks, and let me know if you have any questions or need any help locating free images for use in learning projects here. --mikeu talk 12:22, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for getting back to me so quick. You don't have to rush, I'll take another look at the images later today. --mikeu talk 17:45, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
For the Image:Zz author1.png image I put a {{hangon}} edit in the page to put the deletion on hold. (You could also have done this yourself so that you can take your time to explain why it should not be deleted, but contacting me by email is also fine.) The reason I question the copyright is that this webpage appears to be the home page of the author - it states "designed and created by zz packer (c)" and that notice would cover the image of her also. The fact that other websites have this picture without a copyright notice does not indicate that the image is free to use. It is more likely that the other websites used the image without permission. An individual might not know, or choose to ignore, copyright when creating a personal website about some topic. For bookcovers take a look at w:Image:Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.jpg and read the copyright notice and fair use rationale. A seperate rationale should be written for each use of the image on a different wikiversity page. In any case, those two images are not GFDL unless the creator / owner of the copyright specifically gives permission to release it that way. I didn't check the status of the Nella Larsenimage, but FYI there is a free image at Image:NellaLarsen1928.jpg that can also be used here. You don't even need to upload images that are on Commons: just insert [[Image:NellaLarsen1928.jpg]] in the page. In general, images that were published before 1923 are in the public domain as are works published by the US government. Small thumbnail images of recent works might qualify for fair use, but you need to make sure that there are no free alternatives. Right now we are going through a lot of images to make sure we comply with copyright, so please don't feel like you were singled out. Some of these copyright issues are confusing. --mikeu talk 04:30, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Conceptional Fiction of Ray Bradbury[edit]

Did you want Conceptional Fiction of Ray Bradbury deleted? Ottava Rima (talk) 13:29, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

File:Bradbury ray.jpg[edit]

Hi! I've been doing a bit of a clean-up on non-free images, and noticed that you had used File:Bradbury ray.jpg on Ray Bradbury Fiction and Film. I've replaced it with a free equivalent from Commons - I hope that's ok. As an aside, I really liked the article: I haven't read The Illustrated Man before, but it looks like it is time I did. :) - Bilby 01:23, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Sorry to add another here, but I also come across File:Time cover carlos.jpg and File:Waterworld.jpg. I was going to add a fair use rationale so that they could be used in the articles, but unfortunately they seemed to be be decorative, as it wasn't discussed in the article proper. Thus I had to remove the images. If you disagree and think that either would be useful that would be wonderful - you will need to add a fair use rationale, as I was able to add at File:Book-of-eli2.jpg, which is something I'm very happy to help with if I can. Once again, though, the articles were great. I'm very happy I had the chance to read them. - Bilby 17:29, 19 October 2011 (UTC)


File Tagging File:Bronson alcott.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading File:Bronson alcott.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multilicense GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See commons:Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find all your uploads using the Gallery tool. Thank you.
