• Please, whenever you upload a new image, be sure to follow these three simple steps:

    1) Be sure the image name acts in accordance with our site's Naming Conventions.

    2) Once the image is uploaded, please don't forget licensing.

    • If you uploaded it through the Special:Upload function, make use of the "Licensing (Required)" dropdown feature before clicking "Upload File," and choose the apropriate type of licensing. "A single panel of a character," "A regular comic book cover" and "Movie screenshot" are some of the most common options.
    • If you uploaded it through the "Add a photo to this gallery" function on the bottom of galleries, or you didn't select any licensing option in the dropdown feature of Special:Upload, you'll have to add the licensing manually. Go to the uploaded image and click "Edit," you'll see two rows of buttons to insert templates or format functions. Click on the button that has a single polaroid photograph on it (found in the bottom row), and the template will be added. Be sure to fill in the "License" field with the respective license. Most common licenses are "Comic Single Panel," "Comic Cover," "TV Screenshot" and "Movie Screenshot." If the licensing you added is not valid, the image will still appear as unlicensed.

    3) Whether the image template with licensing has been added automatically or has been inserted manually on the image, please be sure to fill in the respective fields there are, including "Source," "Universe," "Subject#," etc. to help sort it out.

    • Whoops, my mistake! I'll make sure to stick to the conventions.

    • It still has been required for me to rename some of the files you have uploaded, for example:

      Changing "File:Corvus Glaive from New Avengers v3 008-022.jpg" to "Corvus Glaive (Earth-616) from New Avengers Vol 3 8 001.jpg" or "Secret Wars (2015-) 006-002.jpg" to "Corvus Glaive (Earth-616) and Proxima Midnight (Earth-616) from Secret Wars Vol 1 6 001.jpg"

      In most of the cases, it's only a minor tweak in the way a file is named (for example, using "Vol 3" instead of "v3," and adding the "(Earth-616)") while in others it's necessary to change the entire file name.

      Additionally, I've made changes when it comes to the licensing template. You can see an example of how I've had to change it here in order to see how it needs to be done.

      Than you.

    • Oops really sorry! Getting the procedure down was a tiny bit confusing, but your example will help a lot! Thank you!
