Here are a few things I think we need to cover and explain for this policy:
- Should images uploaded and not used for 7 days be deleted? I think it would work well once we get the unused images cleared out.
- The user image policy. The problem with it is that many users simply aren't aware of it. If we're going to enforce it, we need to make the policy known.
- Replacing images. We need to get all users to IFD (or speedy) images when they replace them with better versions.
- What exactly makes an image a candidate for speedy deletion vs. IFD?
- Sources, sources, sources. I see some admins have been taking care of some of this "found it on google" nonsense lately. We need to make it clear that Google, and especially Wookieepedia, are NOT sources. If it comes from another website, it should have the exact URL.
That's all I can think of at the moment. Thoughts? -- Ozzel 05:56, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
- I agree with all of the above points. One addition:
- Duplicates of worse quality than the original should be speedied
- Nice work, Ozzel. --Imp 06:28, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
- I added all of the above. Anything else to add before we CT this? --Imp 18:15, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
Duplicate images Edit
- Yeah, thanks for noticing. It's been added. =) --Imp 14:59, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
I have been editing on SWGames wiki as well, and we need some images. When I try to use images from Wookieepedia (which I source, by the way), I find that most of the images that I would put on there, were uploaded by Redemption. He is currently leading a war against the KOTOR wiki for using "his" images that he spent "hours" making, and I don't want to bring that war over to this wiki. I kindly asked him if we could use those images, to be nice about things, but he said he did not want any of "his" images to be used anywhere else. If I were to go ahead and use them, does ahe have any authority to choose for us not to use those images? I can't imagine he can just say "I don't want you to use those images, because that site was the spawn of Quinlanfan's lust for aminship" (which is not true, as he is not the creator of it), and then we can't use it. But if we truly can't use them, I will back down on it. supergeeky1 The Cantina 04:51, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
The new upload limit Edit
- I've placed a notice on the administrator's noticeboard here. They'll get it eventually. Master JonathanJedi Council Chambers 04:16, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Grammatical error Edit
At the end of point five under Sources it reads "will be speedy deleted." This should be changed to either "will be speedily deleted" or "will be subjected to speedy deletion" or something like that. –– Darth Shohet –– 22:49, October 5, 2010 (UTC)
Image Override Edit
Quick Question. Does an image override another image of the same thing if its on lower canon? For example, does a picture of Assajj Ventress from The Clone Wars ovveride a picture of Ventress from an original comic book? 188.8.131.52 15:20, January 19, 2011 (UTC)
Help with Sourcing?Edit
I want to upload an image for Star Wars: Electronic Galactic Battle (an old game). My own game's box is very worn and damaged, and the only images I can find online don't come from "official sources" (i.e. amazon and a blog). I aasume the image policy applies to Out-of-Universe? I don't want to upload anything and have it deleted; should I just leave the article image-less? Korsa3 15:37, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
- If it is a video game, or book cover, then yes Amazon would be fine as the source. - JMAS Hey, it's me! 15:43, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
