Images

Hi there. Some good images you are uploading and thanks for correctly applying their licence templates but can you please look at the image naming rules and make sure you include the game title abbreviation in each image file name. Thanks. smurfy (coms) 11:38, July 9, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Roman Bellic

I was about to explain to you why I reverted your edit. While the image you uploaded have a better resolution, it is also too small for a character infobox. Try to get a new image, but bigger and closer to Roman's face, like the current one or all the other images we use for the protagonist articles. Thanks DLVIII Talk 18:52, September 12, 2015 (UTC)

Jonhson family

Sorry if that was harsh but a patroller added a "delete" template because he found it irrelevant. It kinda is, since the Johnson family isn't as relevant or significant as the McReary family... Sorry if that sounded harsh though. EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 17:25, September 23, 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!

Naming Images

Please do not use underlines when naming your pics. To give you a reference, a proper file name should follow this sequence:

MainName-GameName-ShortDescription

For example, one of your images would be "Pier69-GTASA-CJCV". Keep this in mind in your future uploads. Thank you Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 14:59, February 8, 2016 (UTC)

Warning

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

Given reason: Violating Image Policy
Issued by: Monk Talk


You have failed to follow the image policy several times. You are now warned. Please follow the image policy to avoid a block. Monk Talk 17:34, February 13, 2016 (UTC)


Good day sir/madam. My colleague has issued you with a warning because of the way that you named this image. When naming images, you must only use hyphens between each section of the image name, while each word in each section should have a capital first letter (unless it is an abbreviation, in which case all letters should be capitalized), but no spaces. In this case, your image should have been named "Don'tSpankMaBitchUp-GTAIII-Mickey&Claude.png" (without the quotation marks). Follow this rule, and I am sure that you can become a good contributor in the future. Thank you.
