Welcome

Hi, welcome to GTA Wiki. Thanks for contributing to the Nikki page, and for taking interest in the wiki. Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything, or as alternatives, leave a post on a forum, or refer to the Help pages. LS11sVaultBoy (talk) 21:44, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Images Licensing/Naming

Danger-icon
We kindly ask all of our contributors to please properly name and/or license all images that you upload to the wiki. Image licensing and naming is part of our official Media Policy, and as such, it is asked of all users to respect the policy and add a proper name & license when uploading as described here.

Licenses
Whenever you upload an image to the wiki, towards the bottom of the page there is an option to add a license.

  • For images that are game screenshots, use the appropriate Screenshots & in-game logos.
  • For non-game screenshots (pictures taken from the web etc.), select This image is used under Fair Use.
  • For images that are not licensed, e.g. images you have created from scratch yourself, select This is in the Public Domain.

Names
As a general rule of thumb, image names should follow the following pattern:

"PageSubjectName-GTAgame-OptionalDescription.png"

The name can be modified in the bar right above the "add license" option when you are uploading it, and must match with the Media Policy (a table of correct names can be seen here).

What you should do now
Because your recent upload was non-compliant, you are now expected to take steps to fix the issues with your file(s). There is a detailed tutorial on how to do this here.

If you have any questions about the policy, please use the dedicated section, or if you need assistance fixing your files, please contact me on my talk page or that of any other staff member.

Ignoring this message can lead to the file(s) you uploaded being deleted and possibly to a block if you continue to ignore the policy on subsequent uploads. For more information on licensing and copyright, see here.

Thank you!

Final warning

Warning

Danger-icon
You have been warned for violating the policy. If you repeat your actions, you will be issued with a block.

• ­Given reason: Failure to comply with the Media Policy
• ­Issued by: Leo68 (talk) 04:39, July 7, 2015 (UTC)

You have already been notified on complying with the media policy. You need to correctly name and license your images for copyrighting reasons, further failure to comply will result in a block. The Zombie image has been renamed but it requires a license. You can find all you need to know on the policy here and there is a tutorial here. Leo68 (talk) 04:39, July 7, 2015 (UTC)

Hmm, not sure Leo noticed the date of that upload, bit on-the-nose to get a final warning for a file you uploaded before your first warning. :)   smurfy (coms) 09:36, July 7, 2015 (UTC)

Progen

I just reverted your "cut" edit from the Progen page. See my reason previously given here. smurfy (coms) 09:36, July 7, 2015 (UTC)

You're still not naming the images correctly. For a character, it would go "Name-GameAbbreviation-ShortDescription. Thanks. Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 09:51, November 1, 2015 (UTC)

Regarding vehicle generations

Good day sir/madam, I have reverted an edit you made to the HVY page, as you removed the image and real life inspiration of the second-generation Brickade. For vehicles with a substantial difference in appearance between games in the same Universe, you must list the appearances as "first generation", "second generation", "third generation", etc.. Also, if only one vehicle is listed, the most recent iteration of the vehicle must be used: for example, if there were two identical or near-identical versions of the Hydra in both Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V, use the iteration from GTA V as the Infobox image on the Hydra's article and vehicle tables on other articles. If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask me or any other Staff member. Thank you.

UPDATE: My apologies, it seems that I made a mistake: the second-generation Brickade is actually manufactured by MTL, not HVY, and therefore your edit was constructive. Once again, my apologies for the error.

Regarding image names

Good day sir/madam, I wish to inform you that you are not naming your recent images correctly: they should be named as "Buckingham-GTAV-Name" and "Buckingham-GTAV-Logo". Since you are making general attempts to comply with the Media Policy, I have decided to not give you a formal reminder. Thank you.

Image licences

Well, your filenames were better than the last guy that uploaded those sxt screenshots... but none of your uploads have a licence. Given the warning history above, I suggest you follow my instructions and fix them pronto. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 04:39, March 4, 2017 (UTC)
