  • I see you're making a few mistakes when you fill out the image template for covers (the Mad covers are the ones I've just noticed).

    Using the drop box for license actually adds the template to the image TWICE if you fill the caption portion with the template. Don't use that drop box... like... ever.

    The rest of the stuff you need to know can be found here.

    • Ok, thanks. I always wondered why someone wanted it to have two templates. I've got to say, a 12 minute video? Are you kidding? Perhaps I can find a "perfect" example so I can ingest all the information in, like, 15 seconds. Could you please post a link to a "perfect" example? I have to say, I don't think the younger generation has the attantion-span to sit through a 12 minute video either.

    • pshaw. use patience.

      Action Comics Vol 2 12.jpg should be a perfect example, I think.

    • OK, thanks. Subject1 = None. Is this preferred over just leaving it blank? (I understand that best would be to put in character name, e.g. Clark Kent (New Earth)). Also, do the new previous issue/next issue populate themselves by using the "F" template? I saw the discussion, but I can't remember...

    • On Cover images (not textless covers, or anything else), we use "none" because we don't want cover images appearing in character image categories - which is where they would go if you filled out the subject field with a character name. For any textless cover or comic single panel, the character name is preferred. Leaving it blank adds it to Image Subject Needed.

      So, for Cover images, "None" is preferable.

      The Next/Previous fields don't fill in automatically, but they're optional fields, and nothing bad happens if you don't fill them out. The proper format for filling that out is "filename.jpg" It will automatically convert that to a link to the previous or next cover.

    • Thanks for adding the step-by-step on your wall. That's awesome. Question about source: Is this suppose to be the originating source that I get the image from? For example, how I have been doing it: If I scan the image myself from a comic I own, I list the issue number as the source. If I grab the image from another source, such as Comics.org, I reference (credit) that source. Based on the instructions, I should use the issue number, regardless of where I get the image from. Is that correct?

    • Well, since Comics.org is just taking its images from scans as well, the source is still technically the comic.

      Inputting a website should only be for things like promotional art or sketches, where the image does not appear in any comics.
