  • Hello!

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

    We have lots of images in our database, 94,725 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". 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.

    These things are not optional. Take a look at the things I had to change.

    Also, if you take it from another site, you have to add the url.

    • Oh, that's what he deleted? Oops. So why is it setup so that you have to manually copy paste the template now?

    • You don't have to manually copy and paste the template. You can use the dropdown license menu. However, if you don't go into your file after you've uploaded it, and fill out the rest of the template with info, it won't be sourced, and that's bad.

      In the end, it saves more time to fill it out manually than to use the dropdown menu and then go back into the file page to fill out the rest.

      And most people forget to go back/don't care anyway, and we hate those people and want them to die forever.

  • Hello, Marhawkman, I'd like to bring your most recent contribution to light for a moment. Simply adding "* Skilled pilot" to a characters abilities tab is only barely getting enough out there. Remember that most, if not all, powers and abilities link back to a category page so if you're adding a power you need to add the category page too.

    There are ways to do that but here's the simplest route, "* Aviation" as I've added it on the page you can check it out yourself. Please look at other pages before making unsure edits to a page.

    I'd also like to mention that most entries require a source however it's pretty well known that Carol can fly planes so it's not as important.
