  • Hello!

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

    We have lots of images in our database, 134,492 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 make a characterp age, the powers need to be added with Powers Templates.

    • Still valid.

      Also, when you source things, you have to link to the actual comic. So not <ref>The Flash Vol 1 999</ref> but <ref>{{c|The Flash Vol 1 999}}</ref>.

    • Please make sure you read this again. You're not tagging characters or sources in the images you're uploading. If you don't totally fill out the image template, we have to take them down.

  • When you want something renamed, instead of creating a new page, just tag it with {{Move|New name}}. Someone will run a bot to move those pages then. We do it this way to preserve the page's edit history.

  • The Titles category is for volumes. One Shots get their own category, which is also added to the Titles category. Please don't manually add the category anymore.

  • Don't forget to fill out the templates on images you upload. I've adjusted some of the ones you added so you can see what's going on. If you need help, you can ask me or one of the other admins.

    • Please use links on the relatives.
    • The race doesn't need to be added manually. You can add an extra parameter to the template, | AlienRace =, which generates the category and displays the race in the infobox.
    • There's no need to list "none" as power. If a character does have powers, use Powers Templates.
    • Please use links in the history section.
    • Issues in sources should be linked with the {{c}} template: {{c|Legion #10}}, {{c|Legion Vol 1 10}}, or {{c|Legion Vol 2 10}}

    If you have any questions, just ask.
