Welcome

Hi, welcome to GTA Wiki. Thanks for contributing to the Vestra page, and for taking interest in the wiki. Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything, or as alternatives, leave a post on a forum, or refer to the Help pages. Thomas0802 (talk) 02:09, February 28, 2014 (UTC)

Pictures

Hey Twinbros22. I saw your pics you're posting of vehicles and I wondered if you could add a pic of the HabaneroDaemon and Double T. I think those are the only pages without GTA V pics. Thanks! Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 05:47, March 8, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Image policy

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!

I will make sure to do that from now on.  Sorry for the inconvenience! Twinbros22 (talk) 02:25, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Image policy

Hi Twinbros22, and welcome to the GTA Wiki.

Only bureaucrats and admins are able to rename/delete files. So if you want a file or an article renamed, contact one of the admins or bureaucrats. And about our image policy, well, they are simply our copyright issues, resuming that every file uploaded here has something familiar with the Grand Theft Auto gaming series, and all rights belong to Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games and every user contributing to the Wiki needs to follow it. There are two steps: Licensing, what you read above, and naming, just to keep the Wiki organized so users can easily search for a file they need. I control all the images uploaded here, if they are following the policy or not.

  • If a user uploads a file which violates the image policy, but the page where the file was uploaded is in need of pictures, I rename the picture and I add the licensing template in the description. However I should leave the message telling the user to follow the policy so he doesn't commit the error again.
  • If a user uploads tons of images on a page violating the policy, or if he uploads bad quality pics (either following it or not), the images are deleted and the user receives the message on his talk page.

It's very polite of you that you care and ask about your mistakes. Most new users here just ignore the warnings, ending with the admins deciding to block these users. I hope you understand it, and enjoy editing here! :) Oh, and yes, I'll rename the rest, don't worry about it.

Any problems or questions, contact me or the last active staff member. --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 16:39, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
