  • If a character is only mentioned, do not use the {{a| template.

  • The credits only need to be what's in the image - so internal panels don't require CoverArtist creds. Also, if two people are credited for one job, see if there's a breakdown by pages. If not, leave it blank.

    And if you fill out a template in the Summary field in the upload, you don't need to select another license.

    Also, please don't use brackets in the name. It upsets the bot in the case of a move.

    That's all. Looks good for the rest.

  • Hello!

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

    We have lots of images in our database, 137,447 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 characters or other appearances, you also need to use the {{a| }} brackets to add the appearances to their categories.

  • Hey there, Gnostic. Please make sure you check Tupka's word below as to your images. I'm here for the character page you created. Aside from some minor formatting issues (it's been a while since you've been here maybe some things have changed) it was a good page but it was unnecessary.

    The character in question's only significance to the story is his relation to Captain Metropolis. He's had one appearance and he will not be revisited, if you'd like to make sure the character's name is known then you can update Captain Metropolis' page with that information.

    Thanks for helping with the Watchmen pages and keep up the good work.

    • Do you have a crystal ball that shows you the entire scope of the "Minutemen" miniseries, which is still in progress? If not, then I would suggest that your comments are premature.

    • The character in question was brought into the plot not as a character with a history, abilities or any other significance that would require cataloging. It was brought in as a plot device for the first issue of the Minutemen mini-series.

      We've seen characters like this before and only having a single appearance does not mean that they're not important as we have many characters with only a few appearances that had enough for pages.

      This is not one of those times, I'm sorry to disappoint you.
