Fair use rationale for Image:1908-2-7-100large.jpg
Image:1908-2-7-100large.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 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 lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
What Currency Was Used During the First World War?
The article implies that the goldmark was not used after 1914. That is the year in which the First World War began, but the German Empire did not collapse until November, 1918. What currency did the German government use during the war? John Paul Parks (talk) 15:24, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
- As the chart below the article explains, the Papermark. I'm not sure how legitimate that division is, though. Germany probably just suspended conversion, effectively turning "gold-backed" money into fiat currency, without changing the name. Indeed, in German, the currency's name remained "mark." 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:41, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
Although the German language uses capitals for nouns ('die Mark'), English doesn't ('the pound', 'the dollar') and I feel that 'the mark' should be used throughout this article. >MinorProphet (talk) 13:48, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
