Files for discussion (FfD) is for listing images and other media files which may be unneeded or have either free content or non-free content usage concerns. Files that have been listed here for more than 7 days are eligible for either deletion or removal from pages if either a consensus to do so has been reached or the nominator specifically requests deletion or removal and no objections are raised. To quote the non-free content criteria, "it is the duty of users seeking to include or retain content to provide a valid rationale; those seeking to remove or delete it are not required to show that one cannot be created." For undeletion requests, first contact the administrator who deleted the file. If you are unable to resolve the issue with that administrator, the matter should be brought to deletion review.

Examples of what files you may request for discussion, deletion or change here:

  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version.
  • Orphan – The file is not used on any pages in Wikipedia.
  • Unencyclopedic – The file doesn't seem likely to be useful in any Wikimedia project.
  • Low quality – The file is of an extremely low resolution, distorted, or has other physical image quality concerns.
  • Copyright violation – The file might be used in violation of copyright.
  • Possibly unfree – The file is tagged with a freeness claim, but may actually be eligible for copyright in the United States or the country of origin.
  • NFCC violation – The file is used under a claim of fair use but does not meet the requirements.
  • NFCC applied to free image – The file is used under a claim of fair use, but the file is either too simple, or is an image which has been wrongly labeled given evidence presented on the file description page.
  • Wrong license or status – The file is under one license, but the information on the file description pages suggests that a different license is more appropriate, or a clarification of status is desirable.
  • Wrongly claimed as own – The file is under a self license, but the information on the file description pages suggests otherwise.

If you have questions if something should be deleted, consider asking at Media Copyright Questions.

What not to list here

  1. For concerns not listed below, if a deletion is uncontroversial, do not use this process. Instead tag a file with {{subst:prod}}. However, if the template is removed, please do not reinsert it; list the file for deletion then.
  2. For speedy deletion candidates as well, do not use this page; instead use one of the speedy deletion templates. See the criteria for speedy deletion. These are: duplicates (where both files are on Wikipedia), thumbnails, broken files, non-existent files, non-commercial, "by permission" files and files which are not an image, sound file or video clip and have no encyclopedic use.
  3. Files that have no source, have an unknown copyright, are unused or replaceable non-free, or are non-free without rationale can be marked so that they will be deleted after a week, and should not be listed on this page. Add one of the following to the file page:
    1. {{subst:nsd}} if a file has no source indicated.
    2. {{subst:nld}} if a file has a source but no licensing information.
    3. {{subst:orfud}} if a file has a non-free copyright template but isn't used in any articles.
    4. {{subst:rfu}} if a file has a non-free copyright template but could be replaced by a free file.
    5. {{subst:dfu|reason}} if a file has a non-free copyright template but the rationale isn't sufficient or is disputed.
    6. {{subst:nrd}} if a file has no non-free use rationale.
  4. Redundant or duplicate files do not have to be listed here. Please use
    1. {{db-f1|Full name of file excluding the "File:" prefix}} for speedy deletion if the other file is on Wikipedia, not on Commons
    2. {{now commons|File:NEW FILENAME}} if the file now exists on Commons, or {{now commons}} for files with the same name on Commons. (Don't nominate protected images, they are usually locally uploaded and protected since they are used in an interface message or in a highly used template, thus they are high-risk.)
  5. For blatant copyright infringements, use speedy deletion by tagging the file {{db-f9}}.
  6. If a file is listed as public domain or under a free license, but lacks verification of this (either by an OTRS ticket number or a notice on the source website), tag it as {{subst:npd}}.
  7. Files that are hosted on Wikimedia Commons cannot be deleted via this process. Please use the Commons deletion page instead.
  8. Description pages with no local file, even though they are in the file namespace, should not be listed here.
    1. Redirects should be treated as in any other namespace: if no speedy deletion criteria apply, they should be listed at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion.
    2. Local description pages with no associated file are speedy-deletable under criterion G8; use {{db-imagepage}}.
    3. Local description pages for files hosted on Commons are usually speedy-deletable under criterion F2 if there is no content relevant to Wikipedia; use {{db-fpcfail}}.
    4. Any other local description pages for files hosted on Commons should be listed at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion.
  9. If a file is appropriately licensed and could be usable elsewhere, consider copying it to the Wikimedia Commons instead of listing it for deletion. Once copied to the Commons, it is eligible for speedy deletion per criterion 8 for files.
  10. If you are the uploader of the image, tag it with {{db-author}}.

Instructions for listing files for discussion

Use Twinkle. If you can't, follow these steps to do manually:

1
Edit the file page.

Add {{Ffd|log=2022 September 27}} to the file page.

2
Create its FfD subsection.

Follow and list the file using {{subst:Ffd2|File_name.ext|uploader=|reason=}} ~~~~

Leave the subject heading blank.

If the file has been replaced by another file, name the file that replaced it in your reason for deletion. Refer below for a list of other common reasons.

For listing additional files with the same reason, edit the first file section and use {{subst:Ffd2a|File_name.ext|Uploader=}} for each additional file. You may use this tool to quickly generate Ffd2a listings. Also, add {{Ffd|log=2022 September 27}} to the top of the file page of each file other than the first one nominated.

3
Give due notice.

Inform the uploader by adding a message to their talk page using {{subst:Ffd notice|File_name.ext}}

  • Remember to replace "File_name.ext" with the name of the image or media
  • For multiple images by the same user, use {{subst:Ffd notice multi|First_file.ext|Second_file.ext|Third_file.ext}} ~~~~ (can handle up to 26)

If the image is in use, also consider adding {{FFDC|File_name.ext|log=2022 September 27}} to the caption(s), or adding a notice to the article talk pages. Consider also notifying relevant WikiProjects of the discussion.

State the reasons why the file should be deleted, removed, or altered. Also, state what specific action should be taken, preferably in bold text; this allows discussion participants and closers to better understand the purpose of the nomination. Some examples of nomination statements include:

  • Delete. Orphaned with no foreseeable encyclopedic usage.
  • Delete. Replaced by File:FILE2.
  • Free (public domain) file may actually be eligible for copyright in the United States. This photograph was actually first published in 1929, not 1923.
  • Remove from ARTICLE1 and ARTICLE2. The file only meets WP:NFCC#8 with its use in ARTICLE3.
  • Non-free file may actually be free. This logo does not seem to meet the threshold of originality to be eligible for copyright in the United States and should actually be tagged free using {{PD-logo}}.


Some common reasons for deletion or removal from pages are:

  • Obsolete – The file has been replaced by a better version. Indicate the new file name.
  • Orphan – The file is not used on any pages in Wikipedia. (If the file is only available under "fair use", please use {{subst:orfud}} instead). Please consider moving "good" free licensed files to Commons rather than outright deleting them, other projects may find a use for them even if we have none; you can also apply {{Copy to Wikimedia Commons}}.
  • Unencyclopedic – The file doesn't seem likely to be useful in this encyclopedia (or for any Wikimedia project). Images used on userpages should generally not be nominated on this basis alone unless the user is violating the Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not policy by using Wikipedia to host excessive amounts unencyclopedic material (most commonly private photos).
  • Low quality – The image is of an extremely low resolution, distorted, or has other physical image quality concerns.
  • Copyright violation – The file might be used in violation of copyright.
  • Possibly unfree file – The file marked as free may actually be non-free. If the file is determined to be non-free, then it will be subject to the non-free content criteria in order to remain on Wikipedia.
  • Non-free file issues – The non-free file may not meet all requirements outlined in the non-free file use policy, or may not be necessary to retain on Wikipedia or specific articles due to either free alternatives or better non-free alternative(s) existing.
  • File marked as non-free may actually be free – The file is marked non-free, but may actually be free content. (Example: A logo may not eligible for copyright alone because it is not original enough, and thus the logo is considered to be in the public domain.)

These are not the only "valid" reasons to discuss a file. Any properly explained reason can be used. The above list comprises the most common and uncontroversial ones.

If you remove a file from an article, list the article from which you removed it so there can be community review of whether the file should be deleted. This is necessary because file pages do not remember the articles on which the file were previously used.

Instructions for discussion participation

In responding to the deletion nomination, consider adding your post in the format
* '''View''' - Reasoning ... -- ~~~~
where "Delete", "Keep", "Comment", or something else may replace "View". In posting their reasoning, many editors use abbreviations and cite to the following:

Remember that polling is not a substitute for discussion. Wikipedia's primary method of determining consensus is through editing and discussion, not voting. Although editors occasionally use straw polls in an attempt to test for consensus, polls or surveys sometimes impede rather than assist discussion. They should be used with caution, and are no more binding than any other consensus decision.

Also remember that if you believe that an image is potentially useful for other projects and should be moved to Wikimedia Commons, in lieu of responding '''Move to Commons''', you can move it there yourself. See Wikipedia:Moving files to the Commons for instructions.

Instructions for closing discussions

Nominations should be processed for closing after being listed for 7 days following the steps here.

Due to the fact that the image is not freely licensed at its source website, it is uploaded in English Wikipedia locally and not at Wikimedia Commons globally. It's a recently designed illustration. The actual work (building) is yet to be built. So, there's no actual photographs available to replace the illustration as of now.

File:Time After Time (Cyndi Lauper vinyl).jpg

File:Time After Time (Cyndi Lauper vinyl).jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Paul to my Linda ( | contribs | uploads | upload log). 

The same European cover art was deleted in the prior FFD discussion a couple years ago. Recently, a different copy of the same cover art was uploaded. I don't know whether the uploader knew about the prior FFD discussion. However, apparently, the uploader replaced the one I used to display a part of the US release that lacked a picture sleeve. I have wondered whether the same artwork still meets WP:NFCC, even after being deleted. I'm still unconvinced why visuals must come first before copyright enforcement.

I uploaded a free alternative to one of overseas cover arts months ago, but I couldn't replace this image a while back. I have still wondered whether this German artwork complies with WP:NFCC, i.e. being irreplaceable and contextually significant to the song "Laughter in the Rain". Well, the free alternative comes from an Australian vinyl release (which lacks picture sleeve), but then I realized a free alternative is more preferred per MOS:MUSIC#Images and notation.

Parton recordings of "I Will Always Love You"

File:Dolly Parton - I Will Always Love You.ogg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by Sauloviegas ( | contribs | uploads | upload log).
File:I will always love you (1974 version) by dolly parton.mp3 (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by George Ho ( | contribs | uploads | upload log).

If deleting either one sample would detriment readers' understanding of the song, then how about keeping the MP3 sample that I uploaded instead? It illustrates what the original recording sounds like in 19 seconds, right? Furthermore, in contrast to the other .ogg one, which I nominated previously months ago, the .mp3 sample displays a partial verse and the partial chorus/refrain. That way, it enhances the idea that the song is more than just a well-known chorus/refrain made famous by the late Whitney Houston.

Nonetheless, if neither sample is necessary, and deleting them both wouldn't affect what can be already understood while reading the article, then deleting them both would be a fine alternative. (In general, sometimes I get irked by the idea that deleting a sample would severely affect readers' understanding, especially when a reader can recognize a singer's name and a song title, both of which are searchable. Furthermore, a reader can hear a song and use a mic via Google mobile app to recognize and find a random song. Once the song title is found, a reader can further learn more about the song itself in Wikipedia with or without a sample present.) George Ho (talk) 20:12, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Game was re-released under the MIT License in 2017. I believe this applies to the game data because there is an "artwork" folder in the repository.

Survivor 41 images

File:Survivor 41 dvd cover.jpg (delete | talk | history | links | logs) – uploaded by ScottHudson1992 ( | contribs | uploads | upload log).

Logos of respective specific Survivor seasons have been used. I replaced most of the logos with DVD covers that contain the same logos and various cast members. However, the case of Survivor 41 is different: both the DVD cover and the logo look 100% different from each other.

The official DVD cover of Survivor 41 contains neither the season-specific logo nor cast members. Rather the DVD cover is different from other Survivor DVD covers and contains the host/producer Jeff Probst carrying a torch (literally) and a different logo using a generic typeface. I am uncertain whether it helps readers understand the specific season and complies with WP:IMGCONTENT more than the logo, even with recommendations by MOS:TVIMAGE, which per WP:GUIDES can be treated with common sense.

Preferably, I should lean toward the stand-alone logo indefinitely until a better official DVD cover arrives. However, I'd be also fine with the consensus going for a DVD cover. George Ho (talk) 19:03, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi George. I agree, I think the stand-alone logo gives readers a better understanding of the evolution of the show's transition from "themed" or "subtitled" seasons to a numbering system, which is a huge change for the show's marketing and branding. 2600:1700:9F60:9590:7525:9228:2C4B:B0D9 (talk) 01:00, 22 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Five non-free files being used in various parts of Fred O'Donovan (actor) in a WP:DECORATIVE manner which fails WP:NFCC#8. Some of the files, however, might be within the public domain at least in the United States under US copyright law and thus could possibly be relicensed as {{PD-USonly}} for local use on English Wikipedia.

File:Cartoon of Fred O'Donovan 1917.jpg is being used in Fred O'Donovan (actor)#Cinema. It's licensed as "PD-USonly" but it also has a non-free use rationale; this is creating a conflict since "PD-USonly" files are treated as PD for local use on English Wikipedia and thus not subject to WP:NFCC; in other words, they don't need to be provided with a non-free use rationale and instead should use template {{Information}} instead. If this file isn't non-free, then there's really no way to justify it's non-free use per WP:NFC#CS and the file should be deleted. If it's PD, then the non-free use rationale should be replaced with template "Information".

File:Fred O'Donovan in The House of the Spaniard 1936.jpg is a non-free screenshot being used in Fred O'Donovan (actor)#Critical acclaim. The non-free use rationale for the file states The picture serves to illustrate his life, and specifically one of his careers. This is the only picture there is of the older Fred O'Donovan - we have one other picture of him younger. which is pretty much the very definition of decorative non-free use. Non-free screenshots can be used when the screenshot itself is the subject of sourced critical commentary or they illustrate some special film making technique that is the subject of sourced critical commentary, but their non-free use is almost never jusifiable when their purpose is to simply show how someone appeared at certain point in their career. There a a number of freely licensed images already being used to identify O'Donovan and a non-free image isn't needed to just show how he might've looked later in life. The film the screenshot comes from is The House of the Spaniard. O'Donovan doesn't appear to have been one of the stars for the film and he's only mentioned by name once if the article about the film; moreover, the film is only mentioned by name twice in the article about O'Donovan. So, there seems to be no justification for using a non-free screenshot per WP:FREER as well if the point is just to "illustrate" the point that O'Donovan appeared in the film.

File:Alexandra Palace with TV tower.jpg is supposed to show the building where the first BBC TV shows were made. This might be fine as primary identification purposes in the main infobox or at the top of a stand-alone article about the building itself, but there's pretty much no justification for using it Fred O'Donovan (actor)#Television per WP:NFC#CS or WP:FREER just because O'Donovan worked on some of television shows that were shot there during that time period.

File:Workhouse Ward TV.jpg is another non-free screenshot and it comes from The Workhouse Ward, which was an earlier TV play that O'Donovan appeared in and is also being used in Fred O'Donovan (actor)#Television. The non-free use rationale states the image is needed to Illustrate pioneering television drama and there's some commentary provided about the play and the acting of O'Donovan, but I don't think that's enough to justify the non-free use of this screenshot.

The last image is File:Robert Adams in The Emperor Jones 1938.jpg, which is a non-free screenshot from the film The Emperor Jones (1938 TV play) being used in Fred O'Donovan (actor)#Television. The non-free rationale states the image Illustrate production of a television show in the very early days of television. Pioneering appearance of a black actor on television. which is might make sense in an article about the actor Robert Adams (actor) or the film, but is not needed here just because Adams had starred in a completely different play directed by O'Donovan.

I can't see how the non-free use of any of these files is justified suggest Delete for them all if there isn't a way to convert their licensing to {{PD-USonly}} or some other type of free license. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:21, 22 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

File:Cartoon of Fred O'Donovan 1917.jpg
I am puzzled by the concern about this picture, the facts of which are identical with File:Cartoon of Fred O'Donovan by Grace Plunkett.jpg, about which there is no problem. The facts are: published before 1927, author still alive 70 years ago. Therefore, public domain in US, copyright in Ireland. I used exactly the same procedure for uploading the two. I followed the steps provided. I never used the tag {{PD-USonly}}. I did not provide a non-free use rationale - the software did, in its mysterious way. I note that Grace Plunkett has the same wording and the same Licensing information. I have never come across the template {{information}}.

File:Fred O'Donovan in The House of the Spaniard 1936.jpg
I am at a loss on how to respond to an assertion that photos of an actor acting do not contribute to an article about that actor. I wonder why people use pictures.
File:Alexandra Palace with TV tower.jpg
I think it is useful for the reader to get a feeling for the environment in which Fred O’Donovan and his colleagues were working, while they were inventing television at this exciting time. It was an old converted exhibition hall with a tower that could support the transmitter mast. But if somebody really wants to delete this I will not shed tears.
File:Robert Adams in The Emperor Jones 1938.jpg
This is the only picture available of the world’s first TV studio, where Fred O’Donovan did his pioneering work. It does not show one of his productions, but there is a connection - Robert Adams. It also brings home to the reader that Fred O’Donovan was a pioneer of non-traditional casting.Roryjohnston (talk) 19:36, 25 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
When you upload images like File:Cartoon of Fred O'Donovan by Grace Plunkett.jpg and File:Cartoon of Fred O'Donovan 1917.jpg under a non-free license using the Upload Wizard (which might be what you did for these files), apparently a non-free rationale is added by the UW based on how you answer the questions it asks during the upload process. There's nothing really mysterious about what the it's doing since a non-free file is required to have both a non-free license and a non-free use rationale per WP:NFC#Implementation and the UW seems to have been set up to ensure both are provided. If you then subsequently go back and relicense the file as public domain for whatever reason without removing or replacing the non-free use rationale (particularly if a template is used for the rationale), an apparent conflict has been created since the rationale is stating the file is non-free but the license is stating it's not. The {{Information}} template is just a more general template for file descriptions that can be used for PD or otherwise freely licensed files uploaded locally to Wikipedia. You don't have to use it if you want, but you should try and provide similar information to show that the file is PD per WP:IUP#RI. {{PD-USonly}} is a general type of PD license that is sometimes used in cases like this. The {{PD-US-expired-abroad}} is a little more specific and seems fine. All that needs to be done for these to files is to replace the non-free use rationale on the files' pages. You can do that using the "Information" template if you want.
The comments about the other files don't really help (at least not in my opinion) to further clarify how their respective uses satisfy WP:NFCC#8 and are not WP:DECORATIVE. Try to explain why the reader needs to see these images and how not seeing them would be detrimental to their underatanding of the corresponding text in the article. How does, for example, the picture of Robert Adams bring home to the reader that Fred O’Donovan was a pioneer of non-traditional casting in a manner that not seeing that image would otherwise make it hard for the reader to understand such a thing? Is there sourced critical commentary particluar to that image which clearly states that it shows O'Donovan was such a pioneer or are you interpreting the image as such? Does the reader need to see the image to understand that Adams was Britain's first black TV actor? Does the reader need to see the image to understand that Adams subsequently appeared in a play O'Donovan directed a few years later? If you can clarify each file's non-free use in such terms and support your claims with sourced critical commentary about each image, then perhaps a consensus can be established in favor of their non-free use. Simply wanting the reader to see them is typically not considered a strong enough justification for non-free use. -- Marchjuly (talk) 03:16, 27 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

likely non-free, the texturing of the logo pushes it over both US TOO and Japanese TOO. Cannot be converted to non-free without failing WP:NFCC#8, as it is being used decoratively FASTILY 21:27, 22 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Comment: It's surprising that this file last so long and wasn't deleted per WP:F4 since it never seems to have had a copyright license. It might be OK to convert to {{non-free logo}} but that depends on how you want to interpret WP:NFC#CS in this case. For some genres of articles, it's often considered "more" encyclopedic to keep everything in the same place; for example, instead of creating stand-alone articles about each cover version of a song, it's considered "better" encyclopedically to cover them all in the same article about the original version of the song. The same things also sometimes seems to be done for articles about book series or articles about film music series. Whether a similar rationale works in the case of Wario (series)#Wario Land series probably needs to be further discussed since I agree with Fastily in that this is probably too complex to be considered a simple wordmark and thus be {{PD-logo}} or even {{PD-ineligible-USonly}}. I will add that if the consensus is that this needs to be non-free, but that it's current use isn't policy compliant, then the non-free use of File:WarioWare logo.png should also be discussed as well because it's clearly non-free but it's being used in the same manner as this file. -- Marchjuly (talk) 03:31, 27 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't think it belongs in Easter (Patti Smith Group album). The reader would already understand the whole album and its concept without samples around there. Usage in the song article I'm also concerned about. The song title says it all already as well as the song's use of the slang/offensive word, methinks, but I can stand corrected. If omitting any sample can detriment the understanding of the whole song, perhaps I can upload a different segment. For now, I'm defaulting to deleting the sample from the whole project until I receive opposition. George Ho (talk) 06:38, 23 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The song has been recorded multiple times by various artists, and Bruce Springsteen mainly/primarily composed it. I doubt the sample complies with WP:NFCC#8; omitting the sample more likely wouldn't detriment the understanding of what can be already understood without this sample. I can stand corrected, nonetheless. George Ho (talk) 06:59, 23 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The 1999/2000 remix may have charted modestly in Europe. However, even with a rapper's appearance and the remix title on the front cover, I wonder whether this front cover is still needed.

This logo had previously been tagged as non-free, though it's simple enough that it might well be a {{PD-textlogo}}. The more general MeTV logo is hosted on Commons as being below TOO (see: Commons:File:MeTV Logo.svg) and I doubt that the introduction of the words "Tennessee Valley" below that logo would rise above the TOO in the United States.

This non-free image is asserted to be a poster for use as visual identification in a TV series article. The image is actually a collage of a poster with a couple of screen shots. This fails WP:NFCC#3a, and is actively misleading as this is not only a poster. Whpq (talk) 15:55, 26 September 2022 (UTC) Withdraw - The image has been updated and now is only a poster. Previous versions have ben deleted so this version is okay. -- Whpq (talk) 13:12, 27 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just midi snippets of tracks from the Star Wars movie. I'm concerned about their compliance with WP:NFCC#3a and WP:NFCC#8. Reading "music of Star Wars", the article already helps readers understand (the general idea of) the music itself. Thus, I really wonder whether the snippets are necessary. Hearing them, I hear familiar themes, but... in midi. (Alternatively, I can extract portion of a few tracks if necessary, but then I might risk violating WP:NFC#Unaccetable use. On the other hand, even just one sample from the actual soundtrack itself wouldn't be adequate.) George Ho (talk) 03:02, 27 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Either critical commentary about the scene is insufficient, or the scene itself is well explained in free text. Even being used for a Good Article since 2007, "Time Enough at Last", still doesn't absolve the screenshot's issues with WP:NFCC#8 and/or WP:NFCC#1 in addition to WP:FREER and WP:NFC#CS.

Whether the image increases readers' understanding of the subject of discussion is not what I'm concerned about. Actually, I'm more concerned about whether the article "Time Enough at Last" would be fine without the image(s) of a newspaper headline "H-Bomb Capable of Total Destruction" and the main character attempting suicide with a gun. If so, then the image may fail WP:NFCC#8. George Ho (talk) 05:58, 27 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
