  • 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.

  • We do not use the "No Dual Identity" convention like Marvel. Use public or leave it blank.

  • Hello!

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

    We have lots of images in our database, 134,648 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.

      Though, for the images, it is a little different, as it can be hard to tell who did which pages, unless specified. The color separators should be okay to credit though.

      If you're just using the comic credits as a reference point, you can sometimes find more specific credits on Grand Comics Database or ComicBookdb - but their accuracy is not always perfect.

      I actually do work on the GCD. I've updated a lot of Harris Comics stuff, amongst other things. I'm currently ranked 26th in the UK and 343rd overall. So yeah, I know about it.
