Hey thanks for your contributions regarding to the vehicles on the Social Club only being displayed as their stock variant but I feel that this is not particularly important information. (Rentedhitmanben (talk) 23:27, March 30, 2015 (UTC))

Images Licensing/Naming

Danger-icon

We kindly ask you (as well as all of our contributors) to please properly name and/or license all future images that you upload to the wiki. Image licensing and naming is part of our official Media Policy, and as such, it is asked of all users to respect the policy and add a proper name & license. When uploading an image to the wiki, towards the bottom of the page there is an option to add a license. Click on the drop down menu; there on the menu in the lower section, you will see "fair use and with permission" options (an example can be seen here for the beta VisualEditor, and here for the original Visual/Source Editor). The name can be modified in the bar right above the "add license" option, and must match with the Images Policy (a table of correct names can be seen here).
For licensing images:

  • For images that are game screenshots, use the appropriate Screenshots & in-game logos.
  • For non-game screenshots (pictures taken from the web etc.), select This image is used under Fair Use.
  • For images that are not licensed, or images you have made yourself, select This is in the Public Domain.

You add the license to the image at the same time you upload it to the wiki. For more help and details, see here. For a detailed tutorial, see here.

Ignoring the policy will lead the files you uploaded to be deleted and possibly to a block if you refuse to follow the policy. If you have any questions about it, please use the dedicated section, or contact me on my talk page or any staff member. Thank you!

Image Naming

This is your second notification on the matter. Next time you don't follow the policy you will receive your first warning. SJWalker (talk) 18:01, April 9, 2015 (UTC)

Warning

Danger-icon
You have been warned for violating policy. If you repeat your actions, you will be issued with a block.

Given reason: Refusal to follow the image policy
Issued by: SJWalker (talk) 18:40, April 9, 2015 (UTC)

You have been asked by two admins to follow the image policy and you still refuse to do so. As this is your third reminder, you will be blocked the next time you do not follow the policy. Thank you. SJWalker (talk) 18:40, April 9, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Edits

Yes, you are adding useful information, but your images must follow the image policy. This is a policy that every user from bureaucrat downwards must abide by. SJWalker (talk) 18:44, April 9, 2015 (UTC)

Block

Block-icon
You have been blocked for violating the policy.

Given reason: Refusal to follow the image policy and insulting a staff member
Issued by: SJWalker (talk) 18:52, April 9, 2015 (UTC)
Expires: 3 months

You are blocked for three months. Insulting other users is something we take an extremely dim view of on this Wiki. If you had asked me for a media policy walkthrough in the first place this would have all been avoided. SJWalker (talk) 18:52, April 9, 2015 (UTC)

FYI, the first message from Smashbro8 includes the following sentences:
"You add the license to the image at the same time you upload it to the wiki. For more help and details, see here. For a detailed tutorial, see here."
