  • Hello!

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

    We have lots of images in our database, 132,651 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.

  • Good job on your updates. FYI there's a difference in results between using [[Wallace West (New Earth)]] and {{a|[[Wallace West (New Earth)]]}}. We don't use the {{A}} in the synopsis.

    The [[Wallace West (New Earth)]] is just a link. So clicking on it will actually bring you to that page. It doesn't do any category magic.

    The {{a|[[Wallace West (New Earth)]]}} actually uses the {{A}} template. We can find and search where all a character has appeared in comics by adding the Category:Wallace West (New Earth)/Appearances category to a comic. However, we don't do this manually. We put the {{A}} template around a link and it will auto add the category to this comic. You can see the categories at the bottom. You'll also notice when looking at a character's page that there's a link that will link you to these appearances this character has made as well. Magic!

    We don't use the {{A}} template in the synposis part of the comic page. Sometimes a character may only be mentioned and we don't want to accidentally add them as an appearance. Also, sometimes we use bots to mass update. It makes it a little cleaner if we just follow the rules of having appearances in the one section, and in the synopsis just use the links. There might be some other reasons too I'm just not thinking of them right now...

    Let me know if that wasn't clear. I've made the updates to your recent synopsis updates so feel free to review those changes. Keep up the good work!

    • Thanks man, its a learning process! I am really enjoying the Flash run so far. "The Return of Barry Allen" arc was amazing ... just feels different to many of todays comics.

  • When editing, can you maybe make all the updates you think you'll need before hitting publish? You can always preview before publishing if you're worried about any mistakes. I forget somethings all the time too so it happens, but 14 edits on a page with sometimes one character added at a time can put a lot of work on those of us who check updates to articles. Let me know if you are having any issues with anything, I'd be happy to help.

    • Ok, thanks for the info ... I did not think you guys check these pages that quickly.

    • They made preview a bit trickier, but click the large "Desktop" button above the Submit button and you get a preview.
