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!

Vandalism

Danger-icon
Although everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions here, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Template:ImageLicense, appears to be an act of vandalism, and has been reverted. If you continue to vandalize any pages, you will receive a block for an appropriate amount of time. Please refrain from doing so in the future. Thank you.

Vandalism

  • 1) please create headings for talk page messages.
  • 2) Sign off messages.
  • 3) you removed all the content from that specified template. That is vandalism. Please avoid this.

Stay blessed. :) Monk Talk 18:00, April 19, 2016 (UTC)

You can also check out GTA Wiki:Vandalism for more information. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 20:26, April 19, 2016 (UTC)

Signature

Go to your Preferences, under the signature heading, and choose "I want to use wikitext in my signature". Then you just create a new signature in "Custom Signature" (you can create a template or just type the code inside the box). When you're done, just click save at the bottom and you can see the result. Hope I helped. TGS96 talk stalk 14:51, April 22, 2016 (UTC)

If you want something like mine, type/copy-paste this in the text box:
<font size="4" face="Tahoma"><b>[[User:GTAFan86|GTAFan86]]</b></font> <font face="Tahoma"><sup>[[User talk:GTAFan86|Talk]]</sup></font>


Monk Talk 14:55, April 22, 2016 (UTC)
Hi Monk Glad to see you :) thanks but i want also change my signature color GTAFanBoy86 (talk) 15:06, April 22, 2016 (UTC)
Use this:

<font size="4" face="Tahoma" color="COLORNAME/COLORCODE"><b>[[User:GTAFan86|GTAFan86]]</b></font> <font face="Tahoma"><sup>[[User talk:GTAFan86|Talk]]</sup></font>
Replace COLORNAME/COLORCODE with either a basic color name (red, orange, brown, cyan, darkblue, limegreen, green, etc), or a HEX/HTML color code :) Monk Talk 15:10, April 22, 2016 (UTC)
In Preferences or Source mode ? GTAFanBoy86 (talk) 15:22, April 22, 2016 (UTC)
This is all done in the preferences. In the the space for typing. The space accepts this kind of HTML :) Monk Talk 15:25, April 22, 2016 (UTC)
I think i can't do this :( but thank you GTAFanBoy86 15:34, April 22, 2016 (UTC)


Hey don't worry :)
  1. Go to your avatar at the top of the menu. Hover over it.
  2. Select "Preferences"
  3. Go to the "Signature" heading. It's the second section in the "My info" section (default).
  4. There should be "Existing signature:" and "Custom signature:". In the "Custom signature" bar, copy and paste the code I gave you up there. (Reminder :P)
  5. Under this bar is a tick-box, reading "I want to use wikitext in my signature". Please tick this box if it isn't ticked already.
  6. Finally, go to the very bottom of the page, and click the "Save" button.
All done ;) Monk Talk 15:39, April 22, 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Stay bleesed :) GTAFanBoy86 (talk) 15:58, April 22, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Image

I've deleted it for you. Sam Talk 16:25, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

No problem. Sam Talk 16:51, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

Licensing

Mate, you don't need to request a deletion for an image just because you licensed it wrong. All you do it go to the file, click edit, go into "Source", and paste the license template, eg:

{{Gtaiv screenshot}}
{{Gtav screenshot}}
{{Gtasa screenshot}}

...etc

FYI, {{ and }} mark templates; they are code for templates.

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

• ­Given reason: Violating the Media Policy
• ­Issued by: MythHunter 007


The image you uploaded should be named as "GTAFan86-Signature" not "MySignature". --MH007Signature MythHunter 007 Talk MH007Signature 07:23, May 8, 2016 (UTC)

Regarding minor changes to your Talk page introduction area

Good day Mustafa. I hope that you do not mind, but I made a few minor changes to the introduction area (where the image of Niko, Johnny and Luis and your clock appear). If you do not like the changes, feel free to revert them.

Images

Hello. I had to delete a number of Chinatown Wars Liberty City map images that you have uploaded. These images had the "WikiGTA" watermark on them so we cannot use any images like this as it violates the "no copying other wikis" rule. Please do not re-upload these images unless you find a non-watermarked version.

Files in question:

Sorry I didn't go in chat earlier. I was out when you sent your message and I've only just managed to get around to seeing it. Sam Talk 23:02, May 11, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Happy birthday

Thanks a lot. :) Sam Talk 13:00, May 12, 2016 (UTC)

I'm in chat. What do you need help with? Sam Talk 13:28, May 12, 2016 (UTC)

Re: WikiGTA Watermarked Images

Okay. I was just concerned about the watermarks because usually, that means that a website or a person claims ownership that image. Although the media policy doesn't state anything about images with watermarks, we need permission to use their images and to source their website. I guess because the watermarks was placed across the image, it was best to remove them.

Regarding changes to your clock

Good day Mustafa, I have fixed some coding bugs that you inadvertently introduced to your clock template when you were trying to alter it. Also, are you sure that you want your clock background to be white instead of red? If so, I will change the colour of the text in the coloured area so that it can be seen.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 10:17, May 13, 2016 (UTC)


What exactly is wrong with your clock? It looks fine to me.
UPDATE: I have change the text color of your clock to black.

Re: My Winter Clock

Your Turkey Winter Time clock is correctly configured, and there is nothing more that you need to do. You seem to be getting used to the coding now; good job.

By the way, the next time that you are in Chat with an Administrator or Bureaucrat (such as Monk), I will send you a picture of myself as you have requested.

RE: Images

They're licenced and named correctly, but I think the views you have are the "front quarter" views, not the front. If you want to re-upload them I can delete the originals once you've done. Sam Talk 10:44, May 17, 2016 (UTC)

Re-named them. Sam Talk 15:12, May 17, 2016 (UTC)

RE: RfP

Sure. Votes on Requests for Promotion are open to everyone. Sam Talk 09:40, May 18, 2016 (UTC)

Request for Promotion

My Request for Promotion has been restarted as an Administrator election on the Community Noticeboard, as "That Ferrari Guy" wishes to compete with me for the position of Administrator. Please vote and/or comment again if you have already done so. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 20:26, May 18, 2016 (UTC)


That Ferrari Guy has withdrawn his request in the election. Votes for TAlim 1994 will continue as they were originally intended. Monk Talk 21:12, May 18, 2016 (UTC)

Regarding your inactivity

Good day Mustafa, I have not seen you editing here for some time. May I ask why you have not been active this month (June)?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 14:28, June 20, 2016 (UTC)


I see. It is good to see you back. May I ask where you went for your vacation?
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 00:34, July 5, 2016 (UTC)


I see. Can you please send me an approximation of how to pronounce "Çeşme" in English? I am not terribly familiar with the Turkish alphabet.

How to create links with ordinary text

Good day Mustafa. With regards to your Chat question about how to create links with plain text, enter two open square brackets ([[), the link name, a pipe symbol (|),  the text to be displayed, then two close square brackets (]]).

For example:

[[User:GTAFan86|your User page]]

creates a link to your User page with the text "your User page".

For external links, enter one open square bracket ([), the link URL, a space, the text to be displayed, then one close square bracket (]).

For example:

[http://www.youtube.com YouTube]

creates a link to YouTube's main page with the text "YouTube".

Apologies again, I went offline shortly after I read your second message asking me to join the Chat, as it was around 1:00 AM here in Sydney at the time and I was very tired, to the point of not wishing to join the Chat or even reply to your message. I will talk to you next time. Once again, my apologies.

Re: Re-naming a image

The image has been renamed to "Debra-GTAV-HangTen.jpg", as it is a more clear description. Thank you for notifying me. However, if you wish for a faster image name correction, use the Rename page, as it is often checked by Administrators and Bureaucrats.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 06:28, July 30, 2016 (UTC)


The job is done. Thank you for notifying me.

Regarding your question in Chat

Good day Mustafa. Regarding your earlier Chat question to Monk, which was never answered, "besides", in the context (manner) used in the Chat, basically means "other than (this)". For example: "I do not like vulgar jokes. Besides, I do not like bad language".

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 17:18, August 2, 2016 (UTC)


You are most welcome.
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 17:34, August 2, 2016 (UTC)

Regarding an image

Good day Mustafa, I am not sure whether you can assist me with this, but can you tell me whether this image is from Lifeinvader or Bleeter? I fear that I may have made a mistake in the naming of this image, as I am not certain of the layout of either website.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 10:06, August 3, 2016 (UTC)

It's from Lifeinvader - layout and colors match. Monolith Patch Rain - Talk SCS Freedom 10:10, August 3, 2016 (UTC)
I thought so. I actually assumed that it was from Bleeter initially, but decided to preempt (predict or guess) what I expected the answer to be by renaming the image and related page information beforehand. Thank you to both you and Rain for the assistance.

Renaming Images

If an image only appears on 1 article, please do not leave a redirect when renaming - this can be done by unticking "leave a redirect" when in the rename/move interface. Thanks. Monk Talk

Unfortunately you need to be an admin to be able to rename images without leaving redirects. I know, this is pretty annoying to have to contact sysops to cleanup the redirects left during the moving processes. Monolith Patch Rain - Talk SCS Freedom 22:09, August 4, 2016 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I can't re-name any images without redirect. Am i should not re-name images ? GTAFan86-Signature2talk contribs 06:03, August 5, 2016 (UTC)
I feel that something should be done about this, as it is a rather unfortunate limitation for Patrollers. See if you can do something about it, or else contact Wikia about the matter.
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 09:55, August 5, 2016 (UTC)
Not leaving a redirect is actually classified as deleting a page - you are renaming, yes, but you are also deleting the original file, moving a file without a redirect isn't actually moving the file, it's just creating a new page with the same file, and deleting the old one. That said, I don't think I will bother contacting Wikia, as I personally have no problem with spare redirects; if we use the Rename page as it is, we could add all the file renames to there, and Sysops can delete the redirects.
PS GTAFan if multiple users respond to a message on your talk page, answer on your own talk page, don't reply to the original sender, as that is splitting the conversation. Thanks. Monk Talk 10:08, August 5, 2016 (UTC)
Ok, Monk. GTAFan86-Signature2talk contribs 10:38, August 5, 2016 (UTC)
Your point is noted Monk. If you are fine with the renaming system for Patrollers as it is, then leave it as it is. However, as discussed in Chat, are you intending to allow Patrollers to edit protected pages (or have you already done so)?
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 11:01, August 5, 2016 (UTC)

(Reset indent) I have contacted Wikia. Monk Talk 11:22, August 5, 2016 (UTC)

Good to hear. That will certainly improve the ability of Patrollers to manage the wiki.

Hey GTAFan86, I saw you created this template so if you can spare the time, could you please add this template in all mission pages in GTA SA? I will be editing the pages as well, but from those pages that don't have the Radar Icons, so please edit yours from those that have Radar Icons already. I will also upload the remaining Radar Icons soon.--MythHunter 007 Talk 11:39, August 14, 2016 (UTC)
