  • There's no need to add Vol 1 to comics with the {{C}} template.

    • Yeah, I know--I just do it to be consistent. Thanks for telling me, tho.

  • Hello!

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

    We have lots of images in our database, 124,385 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.

    Questions can be directed to any of our admins, or asked on our forums.

    • Do you know how to move files?

        Loading editor
    • Admins can do that. But your images were a cover crop and two panel sequences - a one panel image is better.

        Loading editor
    • Sure, feel free to upload one. Please move the tagged file, thanks.

    • Well, I went and cropped them. It looks like you just bounced out. Anyway, I have tagged some for deletion.

  • But am curious, where did I tell you that before?

    • Koavf wrote: How is "the series name, issue number, and volume number" alt text? That in no way serves the function of alt text.

      Hm. No, my Lua knowledge is very small. I can try to patch together something, tho.

      It was a full sentence that included those variables. Ultimately, it was meant to indicate that it was the cover of that comic book, and not what was depicted on the cover (whereas, a description of the content would certainly be more effective than just "Textless" on a textless cover).

      All that said, I've just been informed that neither galleries nor portable infoboxes support alt-text.

    • Oh, okay--I suppose that is more reasonable than I originally considered. Thanks for your perspective.

  • I made some changes a couple of your textless cover images. You can see what I changed here [1].

    • You should talk to the admin who deleted it. Good luck, tho.

  • Do not run bot scripts on a regular account.

    Also, there's no harm on linking to disambigs. On the image fair use template, we prefer it.

  • The Superman of the Golden Age Reality in the Dominus Effect storyline of 1998 is NOT Kal-L of Earth-Two, since this is actually still Kal-El of New Earth who has been splintered off into four different realities created by Dominus. Neither are the Silver Age Reality or Bronze Age Reality versions of Superman Kal-El of Earth-One.
