I know you've been doing it for a really long time already, but it's unnecessary to use first appearance categories for AU characters... they're not useful, they just sort of clutter up the categories with versions of characters who already had a first appearance. Those categories are there so that people can check at a glance which characters first appeared in any given year, and that's much harder to do when they're also crammed with every character who appeared in an Elseworlds book that year.
But why is it clutter if people can find out about appearances of their favorite versions at a first glance? And most DCAU and teen Titans characters were already in the categories before I first used the site.
All templates have a field called "| Image =", usually near the top. To add a picture, you just need to add "Picture name.jpg" (without "File:") behind the equals sign and the image will automatically show correctly.
Thank you for uploading new content to the DC Database project!
We have lots of images in our database, 132,621 in fact, and in order to keep them organized we use a system of naming, categories and licensing added to each.
Please review our Naming Conventions for Images. Images are categorized by name, so a descriptive name rather than a string of numbers is important.
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.
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.
Images should be no less than 300px wide, unless no bigger image is available.
Add the Image Template to the images you upload. This is mandatory. Fill it in as detailed here, or below.
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.
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.
