Suggested use and guidelines[edit]

Minimal requirements:

{{Fair use 
 |source = <source>
 |author = <author>
 |reasoning = <reason>
}}

Optional fields are used to further define details or write over default values. The following is a list of all optional fields that can be applied to this template. You are not required to add optional fields and you may select one or more to use, to use the default value just omit the row.

{{Fair use 
 |source = <source>
 |author = <author>
 |reasoning = <reason>
 |usableonuserpage = <optional:is usable on user pages>
 |usernotes = <optional:user notes>
}}

The template includes three required fields, source, author and reasoning. The source is the original location of where the image was found, you should link to the website page that displays the image as some website servers do not allow you to view images unless you have visited their website. The author of the image is the person or organization that holds copyright for that image. The image cannot be protected by a login system.

Every fair use image must have a reason to be allowed, if the reasoning is weak the image will be marked to be revised and a new reason must be added. When the image is used as a research image, it will not be allowed to be used for recreational means anywhere else except when used under Fair-use. Pages that may not include this image must set usableonuserpage to "no". This field is optional and it will default to being allowed to be used by user pages.

User notes are additional notes that can not be included under any of the other fields. By default this field will not show. Fox 08:12, 23 May 2007 (EDT)

Mistake[edit]

Now it says: This image may be freely used on user pages.

It should say: This image may NOT be freely used on user pages.
