Help desk Fair use tagging tips...

Since some people don't seam to know how to tag an image, or some are doing it differently than others, here are some tips for tagging Fair use images.

Order and Format

You can find the base code to copy for a rationale template on Fair use rationale. As for the {{Fair use}} template, the ones you guys will probably use most are {{Fair use|<tv-screenshot>}}, {{Fair use|<character>}}, and {{Fair use|<dvd-cover>}}.

The page should be in the order of Rationale, Fair use template, Categories. The Rationale should be put in the Summary section and the {{Fair use}} should be put in the Licensing section. On the image pages the headers should have a space on each side of the header name, in other words use == Summary ==. And there should be a empty line in between the Fair use template and any categories.

The reason for this format is to keep compatible with anyone who decides to use the License drop down in the Upload forms. This way we don't have people doing strange things with image pages.

Rationale Parameters

Point out it's a Low res screenshot and who is in the shot.
If you downloaded it from a website, link to where you found it. But don't link to Wikipedia images as they are being deleted commonly. If it's otherwise a screenshot from a specific episode, then link to that episode. Links are in the format [[Naruto: Episode #]] for the Naruto series, and [[Naruto Shippūden: Episode #]] for the Naruto Shippūden series.
The format "Single Frame from the ??? series by [[Masashi Kishimoto]]." is good, just substitute the ??? for [[Naruto]] or [[Naruto Shippūden]].
When uploading a character screenshot using "Illustration of the depicted character." works. Otherwise you might need a bit of creativity, or just ask me.
Unless you have resized it to a specific size like 500px but it's a low resolution shot, just put "Low" here. ^_^ Just don't put low if you're using a High resolution shot.
Using "Only by a similar screenshot with the same license status" works good here.
