FANDOM


Below is a guide to certain areas of the wiki that require images.

Uploading

Please ensure that if you upload an image while editing a page, that you add the appropriate attribution template. Click on more options, then choose an option from the Licensing list that appears. When you select a licensing template, a preview of it will appear. This template will appear on the file information page.

Imageupload

If you upload an image via Special:Upload (the Add a Photo link in the Contribute menu), then the same rule applies. The Licensing list is on the same page as the upload button. If you're using Monobook, this is the only image upload form available.

If you feel that the required option isn't on the list, please let an administrator know.

Infobox Pictures

For character infoboxes, use landscape oriented photos or those that would fit in a landscape frame. Screenshots are typically landscape. Exceptions from the landscape guidelines are Zords/Mecha, Megazords/Giant Robos and Monsters

As for the size, it is preferable that the head of the subject make up 1/3 of the photo.


If the photo is not landscape the infoboxes, especially those of characters will crop it for you. Check to see that it looks good on the photo. The photo will keep the top portion and trim the lower part if it is portrait-oriented.


Quality

As information new arrives for each season, different qualities of images can be found. Please note the priority of what quality we can use.


Infobox Landscape Exemptions

These are seen in Garo categories and individual Garo pages. The important thing is that the suit design is clearly seen. Quality priority applies.


Disallowed Photos

Photos from English-language sites (accessible by general audience) that contain layout detail are not allowed on the wiki as they form the site identity of other websites. Exceptions are photos found in downloads sections, such as wallpaper, skins, and official production photos. Non-English site photos are allowed with copyright. Never use an image with a watermark. Plain white backgrounds should also be avoided. And don't upload animated images.


Nudity

One challenge of Garo Wiki is the adult content of the series. Wikia's Terms of Use prohibits the use of images that are "obscene, pornographic, abusive, offensive or profane". While Wikia says that SOME nudity is acceptable, the details of this are a bit murky, as some editors have faced administrative deletions for images. Some characters in Garo are nude and there is no way around this for image capture, so worst case scenario, the best option is to censor the areas exposed and have the image be cropped so only the characters face is shown.
