This page in a nut shell: .PNG is the preferred format; Only 2 personal images are allowed


For more information see the Image Maintenance Project.

Personal Images[edit source]

A user is only allowed to upload two personal images onto the wiki. They must not be real life pictures. The image must have your username and a sequential number. For example, if you were to upload an image it must be named <insert name here>(1).png and your next one would be named <insert name here>(2).jpg. If you feel that 2 images aren't enough and you want more, there are many free image uploading sites, such as Photobucket, TinyPic, and Imageshack, where you can upload them and link to them on your page. If you want a picture deleted so you may upload another one, on the file page place {{d|<reason for deletion>}} and an admin will delete it.

Uploading Images[edit source]

A .PNG file is preferred over other file formats. Saving a JPEG/JPG adds compression artefacts, which lowers the quality of the image. Using GIF format for still images causes dithering or color changes. GIF format, however, is the only format for uploading animations, so it may be used in those cases. Before uploading images, please add a layer of transparency. If you cannot, when it is uploaded add {{transparent}} to the file page, and someone else will do it.
