Fair use rationale for Image:HagridKnockturn.jpg


Image:HagridKnockturn.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 05:16, 5 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Citation needed for pun?


Just wondering why a citation is needed for someone's statement that "Knockturn Alley" is a pun on "nocturnally". Same with "Diagon Alley" being a pun on "diagonally" (there's a request for a citation in that article too). Especially knowing JKR's love of significant or joking names for things, it seems (to me) clear that that pair of puns was intentional. Besides, unless she confirmed it in an interview somewhere, I can't imagine how one could find a valid citation anyway. - Erusse estelinya (sorry, having trouble signing in right now) 22:55, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
