Note: This topic has been unedited for 744 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.

It appears that having the fair use rationale stuff automatically placed into the summary box on the upload page is allowing users to upload without actually editing it, since the image policy just says that the fair use rationale template needs to be there, along with license data for it to be allowed. This has resulted in many uploads (most of which are deleted) recently containing invalid rationales because users are now being lazy in filling it out, which means users are actually having to look at images before tagging them for deletion (before it was much easier to see if an image was violating the policy or not). Please use this thread to discuss whether having preformatted fair use rationales has any real benefits to the wiki. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 15:51, February 24, 2013 (UTC)

I think that it does. It aids people who make proper image uploads, and if people upload images without filling them out, despite the job being made easier to them, and after having been warned about it, it only makes their blocking more justifiable.

I knew this would come up sooner or later. Thats the reason I preferred preformatted templates... But they were very hard coded. So starting from scratch, I made a robust, flexible {{File Information}} template. Clear cache and see the upload page.~ UltimateSupreme 16:57, March 17, 2013 (UTC)
