  • Hello!

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

    We have lots of images in our database, 137,443 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.

    • Thanks! Does that mean I have to delete the two images of Doris Zuel (New Earth) I uploaded, rename them Doris Zuel (New Earth) XXXX and Doris Zuel (New Earth) XXXY, and re-upload them?Darci (talk) 00:12, March 2, 2016 (UTC)

    • I already deleted them. As for names, follow the standard already in the gallery: Giganta 0013.jpg and up.

      But do not forget the Image Template.

    • Do not forget to add and fill out the Image Template. Names are only half the work.

    • Re-added the .jpgs, and added an image template. Oddly, adding one for 0014 seems to have filled in one for 0013 automatically? Thanks!Darci (talk) 19:24, March 2, 2016 (UTC)

    • I'm not seeing one on 0014, just 0013.

      But the template is filled out correctly, just do the same for 0014.

    • The Gallery seems to have unconfused itself, so I added a template for 0014 too. BTW, have you seen my Feb 18th msg on your Wall? Thanks!Darci (talk) 20:39, March 2, 2016 (UTC)

    • I usually respond as soon as I see them. Are you sure it came through? I'm not seeing any message of Feb 18 on my wall, or in your contributions.

    • Yep. The topic is Editing the link in Indigo's page I asked the question on Feb 17 at 21:42, February 17, 2016 (UTC) You replied on 22:12, February 17, 2016 I had a followup on 02:37, February 18, 2016 (UTC) Thanks!Darci (talk) 21:06, March 2, 2016 (UTC)

    • That is odd. I remember that conversation, but I don't see it in your contributions, or mine. Maybe it slipped through, I think Wikia had server issues that day. Do you have a link to the conversation, or a thread ID?

    • Ah, it wasn't on DC. Silly me.

      Did you have any questions about that?

    • Yes, piping didn't work the way I'd expected. Can you take a look at that and reply over there? Thanks!Darci (talk) 15:25, March 3, 2016 (UTC)

    • It doesn't work, but in this case, the link wasn't needed.
