Welcome

Hi, welcome to GTA Wiki. Thanks for contributing to the Polaris V8 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. JBanton (talk) 13:34, October 30, 2014 (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!

Gangs

To clarify, street gangs such as the Grove Street Families, Ballas, CGF etc are classified as "gangs" and therefore have set colours. Law enforcement organisations such as C.R.A.S.H. and motorcycle clubs such as the Lost are not classified as "gangs" and therefore have no defined colours.

Additionally, I have undone your edits to the O'Neil Brothers page. Some gangs have defined colors (like the Ballas), but wearing white clothing don't make these gang colors - they don't wear this to identify themselves like Ballas wear purple for such purpose.

The Uptown Riders are a motorcycle club and not a "gang" either, so therefore have no defined colours. Please refrain from adding such information in the future. Thank you. SJWalker (talk) 10:58, February 24, 2015 (UTC)

Infoboxes

Please refrain from adding "vehicles unknown" or "location unknown" to the infoboxes on the Globalpol and the Drug Observation Agency pages. It is mentioned in the article that they do not appear in the game, so the infobox being blank is explanation enough, and adding "unknown" is overstatement of the obvious. Thank you.

Bad Image

Danger-icon
One or multiple image(s) you uploaded , "All of them", has/have been considered to violate our media policy, for one of the following reasons:
  • Poorly named
  • Incorrect/lack of license
  • Low quality
  • Duplicate file
  • Irrelevant to the article where it was uploaded
  • Contained a watermark

Please make sure you read the media policy to learn how to properly name and license your images, and all the protocols about uploading images.
You are still free to upload images; however, please make sure they are up to standards! Continued uploads that do not comply with the policy may be deleted and result in a block.
Thank you!

This is your last warning. You MUST apply a licence template to any image you upload. Future uploads without licences will be deleted. 09:21, March 4, 2015 (UTC)

Picture

Again, it's a nice picture, but it's not properly named nor licensed, if an admin see this, they'll block you, I honestly didn't want it to happen, as your pictures looks good. Signature (talk/stalk/blog) 16:13, April 16, 2015 (UTC)
