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.
The Message is just a pre-made message, so not all the information is specific to you, just easier than typing one. I had loaded the last two images you uploded and neither follewed 1) nor had 3) done, so I messaged you.
That seems awful 1984ish. I know that to be Abraham Whistler, and I don't recall the other one I added. Just because the most I can narrow it down to is the Blade trilogy doesn't mean it's unworthy of being on the site, especially since it's the only image of the character anyone seems to be capable of ponying up.
Right, but we have to be specific in an image's licensing to legally have it on this site. (Note, I'm not sure what image we're discussing, just talking generally, otherwise I'd look to see if I knew which film it was.)
Annabell explained it better than me, I'm not trying to be a dictator on this, just trying to make everything better and make sure people know that the images they are uploading are legal and who they prescribe them to be.
