Description J. Andrew Poth 2006-09-14 20:07:17 UTC
The pull-down list for "Licensing:" still includes the option to select
{{subst:Non-commercial from license selector}} ("The copyright holder only
allows this work to be used for non-commercial and/or educational purposes"). 
According to Wikipedia policy, any images uploaded and thus tagged after 19 May
2005 are subject to speedy deletion.  It doesn't make sense to keep this
licensing option in the menu any more.  If a contributor selects this option in
good faith, it may result in speedy deletion of the upload at some time in the
future, thus wasting the time of the uploader and other contributors who link
their article contents to the file(s).  See

This is not a Bugzilla issue.  The list is maintained locally by enwiki admins
at [[MediaWiki:Licenses]], and any proposed changes should go to the appropriate
talk page/village pump/etc.
