Forums > Senate Hall archive > Image namespace

This week's improvement drive is a a little different. As proposed by Xwing328:

  • 1) Tag all images with the {{Information}} template.
  • 2) Fill in all required fields with the appropriate information (ie. description, source, licensing)
  • 3) For sourceless images, tag the attention field with {{No_source}}
  • 4) For unlicensed images, tag the attention field with {{No_license}}

So get tagging! -- Ozzel 06:46, 23 April 2007 (UTC)


  • 5) Hyperspace images are prohibited. If you find one, tag it {{Ifd|Hyperspace image}}.

  • In the attention field? Or in the appropriate field (i.e. no source in the source field, no license in the license field)? jSarek 07:52, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
    • The attention field, yes, so it sticks out more. That's what that one was designed for. —Xwing328(Talk) 14:39, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
      • I thought it was for noting special circumstances, such as an image having alternate versions. I don't think it stands out any more in the attention field that it does a little further down on the template, but that's just me. jSarek 18:42, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
        • Well alternate versions actually has its own field: other versions. —Xwing328(Talk) 23:33, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
  • What exactly is does "source" mean? How is it different than "author" or "licensing"? E.g. File:'ed!.jpg has a LucasArts copyright stamp on it. Is LucasArts the source or the author? - Esjs(Talk) 01:20, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
    • Hmm. I'd say LucasArts as the author, as saying LucasArts for a source isn't helpful. Source is like where you found it. Jorrel Wiki-shrinkable Fraajic 01:22, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
      • So, since I have no idea where the picture was found, I'd tag it as {{No source}}? - Esjs(Talk) 01:28, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
        • Correct. Normally, source is a Star Wars book, game, or website where the picture officially appeared. Author is typically the person who created the image, such as a cover artist or illustrator. Licensing is the {{Fairuse}} or other tags that we have. —Xwing328(Talk) 17:49, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Should I even bother with images that aren't linked to? (Exhibit A: File:001.jpg) - Esjs(Talk) 02:01, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
    • Unused images are supposed to be deleted periodically. -LtNOWIS 02:03, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
