This article is very neutral with reliable sources. I enjoyed the talk page about removing the information that did not have facts and sources to back it up. I enjoy the pictures as well.

Fair use rationale for File:Clinthill limo.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

File:Clinthill limo.png 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 non-free use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure 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.

Code on display[edit]

The first section is not properly formatted & I'm afraid I don't know how to fix it. I write here in case someone is monitoring tese entries. jde94.126.214.75 (talk) 10:13, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Hypocorism in the first sentence, violating MOS[edit]

@Tvoz:, would you mind explaining to me why this is a "special case" that somehow, for some reason, overrides MOS? WP:QUOTENAME is clear that common hypocorisms should not be listed, in the manner of the first sentence as you restored it. Hypocorism#English lists this particular example. It's taken as a given. – Muboshgu (talk) 16:35, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Because "Jackie" is a name she was widely known as through her life in the press, books, etc., not just a childhood nickname, or an intimate nickname, or a pet name used with children, and so on as hypocorism is generally defined. Although when we refer to her by first name in the article we always use Jacqueline, we have quotes in the text that call her Jackie, and without an antecedent explanation of who "Jackie" is, it might not be clear (as in for non-Americans, children, etc.). We do the same for JFK, and others not related to Kennedys. I believe that clarity supersedes strict MOS interpretation on this point - and let's not forget that MOS is a guideline, not an inviolable policy, and is often overridden for clarity.

I agree with Tvoz; this is an exception to the guideline and, for example, the same was done for Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy for the same reason as Tvoz points out here; a widely used and known name. Kierzek (talk) 20:25, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
