General Disclaimers and Legal Stuff


Wiki pages should have ad least one image (file) that improves the quality of that page. To help editors navigate and use images correctly, some rules have to be followed. The list of all images can be found in Category:Images.

Guidelines

First and most important is that wiki is not a hosting service. Because of it we have some guidelines which you should follow when uploading the file.

  • Before you upload the image, please check the File list or Category:Images to find is the image already uploaded.
  • If image is not uploaded, please upload it so it can be "easy" to find. The best is to name the image with the name of country, alliance, party, military unit... Depending about what the image is. You should follow the naming and categorization rules which can be found below.
  • Do not upload more than one image for the same thing, especially avatars for the same citizen - use re-upload option - visit the image you wish to update with new version and click the link below it. Example: File:Menu_my_places.jpg
    • Exceptions:
    • Translated images (images on different language) for Game related articles
    • Citizen avatars. Main avatar + 4 additional avatars. Sysops will delete all avatars which exceed that quota.

Naming

When you are uploading an image, please use standardization in naming them:

  • Flags should be updated as Flag-{flag name}.
Example File:Flag-Croatia.jpg
  • Coats should be updated as Coat-{coat name}.
Example File:Coat-Uruguay.jpg
  • Citizen (User) logos should be updated as Citizen{Citizen ID}.jpg.
Example: File:Citizen1544872.jpg
Note: Additional citizen avatars have to have versions or to be re-uploaded in existing file;
Examples: File:Citizen1629470 v2.jpg / File:Citizen2009160.jpg
  • Maps should be updated as Map-{map name}. There are exceptions, view categories below.
  • If you are uploading an image which is an image in non-English language, please add country or language name at the end... File:CategoryNewspaper-Croatian.jpg
  • All other images should be updated so that is easy to understand about what the picture is about, avoid random usage of numbers or letters. Try to write an explanation of the image and use category for it.

Categorization

All images require a category and should have only one category. To ease up what category should be one of the following:

At this moment, DO NOT create new categories or subcategories, use one of the mentioned above.

  • If you think that additional category should be used, please discuss it in the Bar

Questions

If you have any questions on proper categorization of the image, please contact the sysops or make a note on the Bar.
