  • You're doing a nice job with the image template aside from one thing. On textless covers, the artists should be listed under penciler, inker, etc. instead of under cover artist. The cover artist field is used on full covers only.

    • oh my! I checked one page before uploading the images, and it was with the 'cover', instead of the penciler, inker, etc, so I followed that line of work, but of course, I will change it now.

      How should be done when there are more than 1 cover artist? penciler1, penciler2, inker1, inker2, etc?

    • Forget that -I learned how to do it. The name of the artist that don't belong appears in red in the preview, so there goes the other artist as the colorist~

  • When you create new character pages, can you also create their respective categories? All you have to do is click the links and type {{Character Appearances}}, {{Character Images}}, or {{Quotes}} on the appropriate page. If there are no quotes, you don't create that one.

  • English doesn't require nearly as many commas as you give it. Please break up long sentences into shorter ones.

  • When you add a profile image to a character page, you don't need brackets or thumb or anything. Just type the file name, for example: Character Pic 001.jpg, into the line and the character template will handle everything else.

    • Well, the system does it automatically when I upload the image. I gonna take it into account for next editions I make and I will clean the code before stopping making editions.

  • Hello!

    Thank you for uploading new content to the DC Database project!

    We have lots of images in our database, 132,634 in fact, and in order to keep them organized we use a system of naming, categories and licensing added to each.

    1. Please review our Naming Conventions for Images. Images are categorized by name, so a descriptive name rather than a string of numbers is important.
      1. As a guide, look what other images in a character's gallery are called, and continue with the same name and number. If you upload a first image of a character, use "[Name] [Universe] 001". Do not use parentheses, or the full pagename. Ignore the Universe designation if it is a New Earth character.
      2. Issue covers should be given at least the title of the series, the volume and the number. A name similar to the issue is preferred: "Title Vol 1 1". Textless covers should be called "Title Vol 1 1 Textless". Files that do not indicate the issue number will be deleted.
    2. Images should be no less than 300px wide, unless no bigger image is available.
    3. Add the Image Template to the images you upload. This is mandatory. Fill it in as detailed here, or below.
    4. Selecting the proper license is vital to properly maintaining our images. Please choose the license which best describes the image you are uploading. The most commonly used are 'Comic Single Panel' and 'Comic Cover', respectively.
    5. Other fields that should be filled in: Issue, Subject1, Artist. Add Source if you've taken it from a different site. If you've taken it from a different site and don't know the issue, DO NOT UPLOAD IT.

    For a more in-depth guide, see Help:Image Template Hub. In addition, please take a moment to review our policies page and more specifically our image policy.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in reply to this post and our admins will explain how you can improve for next time.

  • When you add appearances to a comic, you've got to wrap the {{a}} around it. This ensures the page gets categorized in the [Subject]/Appearances category. This requires the pagename, though. So Dreaming, not The Dreaming.
