  • Hello!

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

    We have lots of images in our database, 140,252 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.

    • sorry should I rename them like:

      • Baby-Doll Lil Gotham 002.jpg
      • Baby-Doll Lil Gotham 003.jpg

      The images weren't just her (also Lex Luthor and Joker) so I figured I should put both names in

    • Not every panel she's in needs an image. One good one suffices.

  • Use the template for mentioned like this instead of two parens.

    That will look like this

  • Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, both Flashes, Hal Jordan, Green Arrow and Aquaman do not follow the usual naming standard for a simple reason: search engine optimalization.

    If people want to know about Flash, they search for "Flash Wally West". The top results on any search engine are ones where that appears in the page name. If we've got a page called Wallace (or Bartholomew) we dosn't get a high spot. So we include the alias and short real name to get high on the google results.

    However, the page itself shoulds still be treated as if it follows regular naming standards, so images and appearances should be tagged with "Wallace West (New Earth)", "Bartholomew Allen (New Earth)", et cetera, to properly categorize everything.

    • True, the main reason I thought it was useful is because she introduces herself by her full name, Wally makes a reference to her meeting Starfire in the past, and this is her first time meeting Dick Grayson... and for some reason he seems okay with her knowing his secret ID. I take it that since she hasn't met Robin that this is prior to her joining the Titans, so getting to know the leader's ID is kind of an interesting prelude.

    • It's probably better to translate that fact to text in her history section.

  • You've made a number of disambiguation pages, and so far, we've had to delete or change all of them.

    • Disambigs use an image gallery and the {{thumbnav}} template, not a list of links.
    • First name disambigs are useless. Noone is going to look for "Steven".
    • There's no need to make duplicate disambigs - real names like Steven Sharpe and Steven Dayton should be redirected to the main disambigs, Gambler and Mento.

    So please, follow these simple rules, or stop making useless pages.

    • Do you know a good guideline for how many chars should share a surname before making a family page for them, in case I notice some lacking it? I'd like to include it in the category description as a reminder to check before doing so in the future.

      First name disambigs basically are just convenient since they're easier to navigate than going for search results since it merges multiple instances of referring to the same character (or version of character) and allows us to organize them alphabetically which the search engine doesn't do.

      While a similar purpose could be achieved in going through the characters' category, with how big it is now, simply being able to type in the character's name and see a short list of results could be a timesaver for casual browsers.

      • Three, four maybe. But it's not meant to serve as a disambig, it's more to make sense of things and prevents us from having to add second cousins once removed etc in the Relatives field - that's just confusing.
      • DC Comics and its affiliates have been publishing comics since the thirties. If you make a disambig for characters named John and Michael, you'd end up having to include a lot of one-issue characters, many of whom don't have a surname, and that is just going to get ugly.
      • The search function is what it is now. If it has a page, it should show up. If it doesn't, possibly some of its appearances will show up. But if people read a story and want to learn who something is, they're better off searching for the story, not the character.

  • When it comes to digital-first (as opposed to digital ONLY), we try to wait until the print edition comes out, and not bother with the digital versions, because they're essentially the same.

    Digital only is a different story.

    So, the reason the pages for the digital issues were not made is because they shouldn't be made, and the reason some of those pages were made for the other books, is that somebody jumped the gun.

    • Hm, ~13/14/13 when brought over probably then, I guess the digital ones must've had 9 pages of padding then. I'm only seeing three though...

      Looking at the digital one though, the layout kinda seems like the're half-pages, because unlike normal comics where the height is more than the width, the width is larger than the height here, probably because they're designed to display on widescreen monitors.

      So that'd explain why it's only slightly more than half if most of the pages were doubled up on when printed.

    • Also, you picked the wrong volume (Volume 1 instead of 2) and the image doesn't actually show sex, or rape.

    • Ah, was doing both to be safe. Anyway while it doesn't directly show it (I daresay no image DC publishes is utterly explicit) it implies it well enough. Didn't even know there was more than one volume of BI =/

  • I was just going over your edits involving Santa Claus and I noticed a few problems. First of all, you linked some of the using the {{apn| instead of the {{a| code. The apn needs you to add a previous and next appearance at the end of the tag or it shows them as appearing in the previous and next issue of that series. In general, you should use the {{a|. You also forgot the brackets ie [[ ]]. Santa should be linked {{a|[[Santa Claus]]}} and say Robin should be {{a|[[Timothy Drake (New Earth)|Robin]]}}.

    Another thing is that 3 of the 4 appearances were on the cover only. I moved Santa down to the Other Characters section and added a {{Green|Cover Only}} note so readers know he doesn't appear in the actual story.

    The last thing is I saw you added him to a couple covers. We've started a new policy where we no longer tag characters appearing on cover images. It adds those images to their character images categories and we've decided those images are just ugly. If you want to tag him on a textless cover, that's fine but the fully dressed covers aren't getting tagged like that any longer.

    That's a lot of text for some pretty minor issues but I thought you'd want to know about it. Anyway, you're doing good edits.

    • Sorry about the APN, I had seen that used on some other characters and noticed it made the category show up at the bottom and when I saw just A I thought it was a shortening that did the same thing.

      The lack of brackets still seemed to make a hyperlink though... I previewed it beforehand and it still linked to the page, doesn't the template allow for that?

      In a lot of cases we have only the covers with text and not the textless covers, do you think we could maybe have a different (sub?) category for the ugly cover appearances? That way we could still organize the ugly text covers to track char appearances that are prominent like this while not grouping them in with the prettier panel / raw art images.

        Loading editor
    • The lack of the straight brackets really doesn't hurt anything on its own. The link still works with the others. Its really only "necessary" when we want to move things. The move bot doesn't recognize a link without them. So while they aren't vital for the link itself to work, we still use them in case there is ever a need for a move.

      As for the covers, its a sort of new policy and there hasn't really been any discussion on it going forward. The admins have decided not to link characters on them any more. Nothing's been said about a sub-category for character images. If you feel a certain cover or character is important, you can still link it. Just as a general rule, we're not linking the characters on the covers any longer.
