Forums: Index > Wiki discussion > File copyright tags

Just a heads-up for the editors who categorize images/files: The copyright tags have been renamed in order to make them suitable for non-image files, to make them comply with our standard template naming conventions and to make them easier to find. I've also added new copyright tags for FOT and FOBOS.

List of old/new names:

Old name New name
{{Cc-by-sa-3.0}} {{Copyright CC-BY-SA 3.0}}
{{Fairuse}} {{Copyright fairuse}}
{{Fallout image}} {{Copyright FO1}}
{{Fallout 3 image}} {{Copyright FO3}}
{{Fallout Online image}} {{Copyright FOOL}}
- {{Copyright FOT}}
- {{Copyright FOBOS}}
{{Fallout: New Vegas image}} {{Copyright FNV}}
{{From Wikimedia}} {{Copyright from Wikimedia}}
Old name New name
{{Game image}} {{Copyright other game}}

My bot will start replacing the old names with the new ones shortly. -- Porter21 (talk) 11:44, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

Shouldn't Commons be in there too? --Light Daxter - Talk 14:06, February 2, 2011 (UTC)
Commons overlapped with {{Copyright from Wikimedia}}, hence I've removed it. -- Porter21 (talk) 14:37, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

Update: 24 hours later, still ~3k images to go :P -- Porter21 (talk) 10:40, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

All template calls should have been updated now. -- Porter21 (talk) 17:18, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
I've just noticed that images in Fallout Tactics screenshots category are still marked with {{Copyright other game}}. veryblackravenTalk 19:17, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
What I meant with "updated template calls" is that the old template names have been replaced with the new ones (i.e. "Game image" has been replaced with "Copyright other game"). I'm having the bot add the new coypright tags for FOT and FOBOS in a separate step; it started at the time of my last post, but it simply hasn't reached the FOT screenshots category yet (it should soon though, currently working on "promotion and publishing images") :) -- Porter21 (talk) 19:26, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
Got it. :) And btw, thanks for new templates. veryblackravenTalk 20:19, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
No problem :) The bot run is finished now by the way. -- Porter21 (talk) 20:36, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
