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!

Image Licenses

Good day. Some of your recent images were uploaded with an incorrect license. The images are screenshots of Grand Theft Auto V, but you uploaded them with "No copyright" licenses. From reading your summaries of the images, you have stated that you have edited them, but editing an in-game screenshot does not make the image your own, and therefore the license still needs to be that of an in-game screenshot. Please be sure to apply the correct licenses in the future. Thank you.

RE:Image Licenses

The images are mine. You see, I used the snapamatic feature on the phone and took photos as you recently saw, you can see with this link to my social club account, [1]. Next I took the photos that I took pictures with my snapamatic on last gen and I edited the black bars out of my snapmatic photos that are listed in my social club account which I filtered to show only my photos just to be clear. To be clear the photos were made by me using the snapmatic feature on Player character's phone while I playing GTA V and Online, Next I edited the black bars out the photos from my Social Club Account gallery to meet Wiki standards. You have noticed, I rushed the upload summary because I had so many photos from my Social Account Gallery to edit before uploading. User:Rakisas 3:18 PM 1/24/2016

It is still a screenshot of the game, therefore the correct licence should be used. Monk Talk 20:25, January 24, 2016 (UTC)

RE: 2nd Gen Baller

I think it may only be in next gen, but Monkeypolice188 as he is more likely to know. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 19:58, January 24, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Excuse Me

I believe they react like the security guards do that you can find around San Andreas. They aren't fully counted as law enforcement, which is why they don't appear when the police come for you. They are just set as an enemy that reacts to hostile actions, which is why they appear as a red dot. The police usually attack anything negative in the game, and since the park rangers are basically counted as normal, but hostile-reacting pedestrians, the police attack them if they do things such as shoot at the player.

Regarding your other account

Good day sir/madam. In case you were unaware, I have unblocked your other account and left a message on its Talk page, so you may edit the GTA Wiki from there if you wish, and as long as you follow our policies. However, I will not be unblocking this account, as it is considered a Sockpuppet. Thank you.
