Image Policy to help get the best images to illustrate the Given Wiki.

Using Images

  • When the "Upload a new version of this file" function is used to upload a higher quality resolution of a given image file, that image file is to be flagged to the admins so that the older version of that file can be removed from the history stack. In addition, if a higher quality duplicate of an existing file is uploaded under a different filename, the old lower quality file is to be flagged for deletion to prevent image duplication.
  • When uploading images on Gallery articles, it is recommended that the uploaded images should contain only the character, whose gallery it belongs to, as well as the right order.
  • Image Sources: Only images from official sources, such as the manga, anime and databooks, may be used on the Wiki and articles.
  • The resolution size of each image should contain a width bigger than the height. Any other images that doesn't meet this requirement shouldn't me used on Character Image Galleries until we have found a proper way to display cropped images.
  • When displayed on articles in a gallery, use a Photo orientation tool for cropping the images to make them all landscape.
  • An image should by all means only contain relevant content!


  • Images are to be free of errors where possible. This means they should not contain mouse pointers and borders. Text in manga pictures, primarily dialogue of characters and text added by the scanlators such as the name of the scanlation group, should also be removed if possible. This may mean physically erasing it yourself. This is to prevent spoilers as well as making the image as clear as possible.
  • If you are planning on uploading an image to a character's image gallery, great! However, do refrain yourself from uploading images more than the character you generally want to be displayed. E.g. If you want to upload an image of Toshizo Hijikata, make sure that he's the center of the image and avoid other characters from the series to be seen on the image. This way, the Character Image galleries represent images focused on a specific character.

File Name

  • The file name should be descriptive of what the image actually depicts or is used for. Long strings of numbers or gibberish constitutes bad file names. However, file names that are vague in what the image is used for are also bad. This is because it is necessary to keep images clearly separated from each other, so users can search for the image by its file name. If it has a poor file name, duplicates are likely to be uploaded and will most likely get renamed or removed.
  • It would be great to use the 'description' option when uploading an image (especially if it's official sources the images were originally uploaded on). This includes describing what the image was originally used for. It is not a must to include a description of an image, but it would be most appreciated if one chooses to include detailed as descriptions as possible.
