Clarification Re: Minitatures Images

Product images of miniatures listed in the APL are covered under the CUP[1]. (WebCite archive)

Source cited parameter

Because the onus is on us as users of the CUP to adhere to the terms of the license, I'd like us to put something in this template which reminds the uploader to cite the source from which the image entered the community use package. This would likely require a lot of rewriting to this template, but I'd like it to be more like {{Non-Free Image}}, in that it would "require" attribution be included to turn off the warning. We're largely doing this, but I know we have some images on the wiki that were uploaded from the community use package downloads rather than a blog post, and which don't include web citations, and they really should. This would alleviate any confusion down the road about how we legally obtained the right to reproduce the image. Any thoughts on the best way to do this? I imagine a script can be easily run with one of the bots if we set the template revision up in the right way.—Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 20:53, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

The straightforward way would be to do like you suggest and implement the same parameter as {{Non-Free Image}}. If that parameter isn't set, the template could categorize it into something like Category:CUP files with unconfirmed sources.
That would flag everything, though, including all the images that already have sources. An alternative might be to extend {{File}} to categorize images that don't use the web parameter/aren't providing a web source. This would flag nearly every product cover image, though we could excuse that by only flagging images without web or cover parameters. --Oznogon (talk) 03:05, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
