Error in text Edit

I think there is an error in the text. In my mind in "Non-free Creative Commons licenses are also not permitted. This includes images which do not allow non-commercial use or derivative works (NC and ND licenses), since these are non-free" should be replaced by "do not allow commercial" which is the meaning of "NC". 02:52, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

I believe you are right - I have tweaked the text. Kirkburn (talk) @fandom 10:51, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

References to GFDL Edit

At least two. Are they overdue for updating? (Preferably before my new assistant on "Country Life" takes them as gospel.) — Robin Patterson (Talk) 02:50, May 4, 2010 (UTC)

About copyrighted imagesEdit

If I'm not mistaken about the content of this page, I can make use of copyrighted images, as long as I note the image under the proper copyright? If that's not the case, then forget I even asked. But if that is possible, then could somebody explain more plainly how I can make use of the copyright tags, so I don't keep getting copyrighted pics deleted? I mean, I love some of the pics I find, so it's pretty disappointing to see them soon deleted. If there's something I can do about it, I'd be most grateful to know what that something is. Thanks in advanced. Shadowulf1 (talk) 08:19, July 7, 2013 (UTC)

Adding tags Edit

Is it possible to edit/add new tags? DinoTaur 19:53, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

You can edit the list on MediaWiki:Licenses on your wiki to add new licenses to the dropdown of the file upload page. You will need to create the Templates yourself, of course. Existing templates (like for example Template:Fairuse) can also be edited. - Tjcool007 (Wall) 20:03, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Remove 'No license'?Edit

Seeing as Community Central has itself removed it, shouldn't this Help page also remove reference to the "No license" license template?--TwoTailedFox (talk) 11:21, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

Link to MW:Licenses Edit

I believe this help page should link to MediaWiki:Licenses, as it may be helpful to some admins to edit the contents of that message in the context of the image copyright tags. After all, it is specifically whitelisted and mentioned on Help:System messages. SlyCooperFan1 [message · contributions] 22:01, February 17, 2019 (UTC)

Good suggestion - I have added a sentence about it (feel free to expand it if you like). noreplyz talk 02:55, February 18, 2019 (UTC)
