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!

Just to explain, you added a leaked image onto an article, this is prohibited on the wiki, thanks MONKEYPOLICE188 (talk) | (stalk) 20:15, February 20, 2015 (UTC)

RE:

Sorry. I didn't noticed the meaning of that part, apart that I didn't checked the update yet. Maybe I should test it first. Once again, sorry. BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Dispatch Detonator-GTACW-Android Data Files Crate-GTACW-Android 15:15, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

Even if your images are for personal use, they must be correctly named and licensed. Thank you. Sam Talk 00:26, August 22, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Schafter V12 + Variants

All done. I knew of them since the beginning but for some reason they wouldn't spawn for me, and by the time I figured out what's wrong it was too late to take images, so I had to leave them for today. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 19:23, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Image licensing

Good day sir, you sent a message to my colleague informing him about the actions of the user "AkumaZ98". Unfortunately my colleague appears to be on leave for personal reasons, so allow me to address the issue that you brought up with him. I see that he/she has uploaded this image (File:Skoiloine.png), which, as you said, is incorrectly named and licenced. I know very little about the gameplay of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas due to the fact that I have never played the game properly myself, so I must rely on your information: is the aforementioned image actually of the Skoiloine?

Image is of a user customized Elegy from GTA San Andreas. 
Thanks for picking this up
Derp Herpington (talk) 22:13, August 13, 2016 (UTC)
You are most welcome. As for the image, since it had no conceivable use - not to mention the fact that its name, aside from not following the Media Policy, was misleading - I have deleted it. Thank you for reporting this matter to us.

It's possible but very, very difficult, I'll work on it, I'll let you know how it goes :) Monk Talk 11:21, December 26, 2016 (UTC)

I can be one :P (editcount ++) Indep (Wanna map?|Wat I'm doing?) 11:54, December 26, 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the attempt. I'm just tired of seeing little arrows everywhere :P Derp Herpington (talk) 00:03, December 27, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Benny's Liveries

Yeah, I have pics for Comet Retro Custom, Itali GTB Custom, and Elegy Retro Custom ready to be uploaded. I might do it for the rest, but it's not going to be my biggest priority. Same with the images of customization options. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 12-28-2016, 02:30:03 (EST)

RE: Vandal

Thanks for letting me know, he's blocked. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 13:58, January 5, 2017 (UTC)

Congratulations on your Staff promotion!

Welcome to the team! My apologies, I would have welcomed you sooner, but I was not online for the past few weeks.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 02:59, January 11, 2017 (UTC)

Thanks! I'm really excited to be with the team.

Need a hand? I'm online if you need something dealt with. Leo68 (talk) 08:59, January 11, 2017 (UTC)

Regarding your name on the Staff page

Good day, I notice that your name on the Staff page does not have a flag icon before it. Would you like a flag icon to be placed there, and if so, which flag?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 10:34, January 16, 2017 (UTC)


You are welcome.
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 08:01, January 17, 2017 (UTC)

Thanks

For filling in that conversion column on the table on Benny's page. I added the column during a work break and was about to start grabbing all the data from the custom car pages. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate

Sub-page links

FYI, the reason I linked the way I did saves work if the main page is ever moved or renamed (it will automatically keep all sub pages with the "root" page) and also saves a small amount of size on the main page. the [[/Source Missions#Stationary Vehicles|Stationary Vehicles]] link works exactly the same as [[Vehicle Cargo/Source Missions#Stationary Vehicles|Stationary Vehicles]].

Vehicle License Plate page

What do u mean by cleaning it up in the ordering of game titles? They go from Online down to Chinatown Wars isn't that in order starting with most recent to first to come out? Well maybe switch Chinatown Wars and Vice City I guess. Ninerfan83 (talk) 05:52, February 14, 2017 (UTC)

No makes sense. I was just wondering, thank you

Talk page response

Good day, I have responded to your message on Monk's Talk page. Please feel free to view it and respond if you wish.

Re: Collapse tables

I did not actually do the edits to the tables; that was Monk, as he did them before I came round to it. You should thank him instead.

Formatting improvements to this page

Good day, just to inform you, I have decided to improve the formatting of the top of this Talk page. If you do not like my changes, please feel free to revert my edits.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 20:08, February 24, 2017 (UTC)


You are most welcome.
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 11:08, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

FYI: Span tags

Like these are left by Wikia whenever someone copies and pastes using non-source editor modes. They are not anyone deliberately adding unnecessary formatting tags. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 02:40, April 1, 2017 (UTC)

Gunrunning Custom Vehicles

We will have to wait for the dripfeeds to see whether the MOC will work like Bennys to convert vehicles or whether they will come in stock non-custom form like Wild's image. In the meantime, my in game image has been used and captioned as the modified version. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 06:28, June 20, 2017 (UTC)

I missed one

I had cleaned up all his nonsense but obviously missed one. Thanks. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 05:07, October 1, 2017 (UTC)
