  • Hey, Just in case you didn't know, the sites Naming Conventions for images also includes the source in the file name. I know its a pain, but could I ask you to go back and tag for moving some of the images you've already uploaded as well as add this in future uploads.

    • Could you reword that? I'm a little fuzzy on what you're saying.

      If this is about the Rick Jones Hulk, it was simply based on the fact that it was in the 7812 gallery and the fact that the 616 Rick never became the Hulk.

    • Sorry for not being clear,

      The Naming conventions on this wiki are that file names for images include: the subjects name, universe designation and the source of the image (the comic, movie, episode etc etc)

      Most people tend to do the first two points fine, its the image source people miss/ didn't exist until a time afterward the image was uploaded. Examples of what follow naming conventions are shown below.

      So to save me time I'm asking to go back to there Uploads and add the move tag to there images. If you don't know the move tag its also found below

      [[File:Jack Russell (Earth-BW20D) from Mrs. Deadpool and the Howling Commandos Vol 1 2 001.jpg ]], [[Marrow (Sarah) (Earth-616)-Uncanny X-Men Vol 1 352 001.jpg]] 
       {{subst:Move|File:(File Name).jpg}}

    • 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.

      Thanks!

    • So as an example, File:Guardians of the Galaxy (Earth-199999) 004.png needed you to add {{subst:Move|Guardians of the Galaxy (Earth-199999) from Guardians of the Galaxy (film) 004.png}} to comply with the proper name that follows the Marvel Database:Naming Conventions, as well as the proper licensing for the source, subjects, etc. that you can see I did for you here.

    • Good God, the licensing thing has always been so beyond me. Maybe I just shouldn't upload anymore.

    • It's really not that hard, especially if you choose the proper type from the dropdown before you click upload, in this case "Movie Screenshot", then it automatically adds the template and all you need to do is quickly edit to fill in the ImageType, Source, Universe, Subjects, or if it's a comic image the various artists as well.

      That being said, I think mainly Copeinator123 is hoping for the name of future upload to be done correctly so that they don't have to be moved.

    • I have made some dumb uploads in the past.
