Image Gallery Guidelines

This discussion is closed. The result of this discussion is:
Guidelines will be made official.
Please do not edit this discussion.

So you guys, as you know, the Image Galleries had a significant increase on their amount of images, and the lack of some rules on the Galleries' organization made them confusing to viewers. In order to fix this, I'm proposing some Guidelines for them like the other Guilds do:

PS: The list of rules got kinda big, so if approved, they'll be hidden like this.

  • Here's a model of a Gallery adapted to these rules.

Support Just because you used Bickslow's gallery as an example :) - but that should actually be part of the Layout Guide and just have the Guild's guidelines link to the layout guide RelikzBickslow Doll3Talk 04:10, December 27, 2012 (UTC)

If approved, it will become part of the Layout Guide. I hope. Santa GrayHerme 阿部 04:12,12/27/2012

Your images were deleted and had poor filenames. It's a pretty bad start if you want to join a Guild like this. Ish may give you one more chance, but for now your application is rejected. Santa GrayHerme 阿部 03:54,12/22/2012

No Well the very basic in my opinion is to read the policy of the wikia you wanna work on. So sorry but not this time. Ishthak Heart kreuz says   22:19, January 2, 2013 (UTC)

Batgirl78 :)'s application

No I'm sorry Batty, but those images you uploaded are taken from other sources. If you were to upload files that you yourself edited, I will reconsider my decision. Thanks!

Arvee100smart's Application

I need examples from the anime. The fact that you can't make a gif already lowers your chances. Provide at least two examples of anime images and we'll see. Anyone can crop a manga image. :P

I've updated it Senpai; just check it out. Arvee100smartChibi NatsuD'ya need somethin' ? 01:10, April 12, 2014 (UTC)

This is a problem. I don't know if to deny your application for taking Misk's image or give you another chance. While the other images you uploaded look nice, I'm disappointed that you took Misk's image and claimed it to be yours. The last Lisanna (with Natsu) image does not look very good (look at the black borders). I'll have an answer by Tuesday.

A not-going-to-be-accepted Application

Hey Sappy! If you know me, I don't like to say no to anyone. But I really can't decide whether to let you in or not. So I will hold a voting process to see what the others think. I personally wouldn't mind having you join us (your images looks nice), but I will not vote unless I need to break a tie. Good luck to you! :)
MegaPanchamTalk 21:33, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

So I'll be the first one, I guess. I'm sorry to say this, but I'm not really convinced. The example images, while nice as whole, have each different quality and color/brightness settings, which makes me wonder how exactly you made them. I've seen all the other images you've uploaded and was again surprised to see how different each of them is, in quality, settings or even the format. The sample gif wouldn't even be able to be used in articles due to its size, I've also seen the huge gif you uploaded earlier today and how many times it took you to even remotely fix it.

I've also observed as you've been adding some pictures to articles and I have to say that you're not even aware of the basics, such as the general size being 200px or the aligment going left-right-left-right etc. One of the requirements is knowing the Image Policy.

With that said, I have to Oppose Oppose -. However, don't let this discourage you. If you work on improving your images and correcting your mistakes, and continue editing on the wiki, it will be the proof of your devotion and one more reason for you becoming a member of IG if you ever decide to apply again. Miskos3 Message 21:56, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

--Hey Misk :) Just to tell you, I uploaded those gifs in that size because I know no one was gonna use them. They are just for my image gallery, and I don't really mind their size. For uses in articles, I will follow the usual resolution.And Misk, that was before, I have to say, I've edited a lot around wikia, and the wikia's have different policy's as ours, so I was a little confused. Obviously, I know them now, it's just cus' I didn't add images for a while that I cannot prove that I know the policy.And about that "huge" gif, it was not really fixing it, I just was replacing, because some of the frames were missing...(Well eventually, I gave up because my computer was having problems)
FairySapphireJuvia wektor 04:47, May 30, 2014 (UTC)

Hi, FairySapphire. I am actually torn about this voting process, because mainly, I don't want to decide for your fate here in IG when I am a newbie and still has a lot to learn myself and if possible, I really wouldn't want to vote. But you see, Natsu wants every member of IG to vote and it would be silly if I didn't participate. So without further ado, same as Misky, I am leaning towards Oppose Oppose. So I will provide you my reasons why:

  • I wasn't actually pleased when you uploaded a picture that has a low quality, when in fact, you can upload high quality ones. You should've done that in the first place. Impressions means a lot to me. I bet you can do better images more than I can.
  • Whenever you upload a picture, you just insert it to an article of your choice. You didn't put categories and put the picture in their respective galleries.
  • Remember the time when you insert your Benizakura .gif in its article? You should've at least made an effort to see how .gifs and images work around here.
  • Lastly, sorry to point this out but having a policy different from yours to ours is not an excuse. I've been here for years and I know about their image policy. I hang out at OP wiki and I know how they deal with images. You see, I make it a point to be aware of the policies of the wikis that I am in. Before applying here, I asked the members of IG a lot for tips, pros and cons, and every detail that I should know. I don't know how Misky managed to survive my everyday questions about images, but still, I asked, so I wont make a mistake. Eventually, when I made my way to Photoshop, I ask Misky to view my works and tell me if they're okay; and if they're not, I want him to tell me what areas that needs fixing. So be accepted or not, at least, I was armed and I am aware on what kind of guild I am getting into and what they do. If I made a effort of understanding how the images in here works, you should've done that too.

I hope you wont take this personally. I know you can do better than you are now, and when such time comes, I know you will be a good Mage.

--Choko, I only recently learnt how to make HQ images....And anyways, like I said, that was when I was confused about the policy... FairySapphireJuvia wektor 05:18, May 30, 2014 (UTC)

Oppose Oppose - I don't actually know what to say... these two above me stealing all the lines I could say >:(. But based on my observations with your edits, you're still not prepared and not well-informed about the policies, so for now I'd have to say no. However, don't let this bring you down; you still have a long way to go, and you can use that long way to learn through experiences and mistakes and make yourself better. Then, after "training yourself", you can just apply again if you're still interested. Red SigHearts 9:02AM, May 30, 2014

No This has been open for some while, so I believe it's time to make a decision. I'm sorry, but as per everyone's votes, I'm going to have to decline your application, for the reasons everyone has pointed out. As was said, it's not meant to discourage you, but rather incite an improvement. Good luck. Miskos3 Message 09:47, June 11, 2014 (UTC)

Sasoo Application

Hey Saso~ I've noticed that most, if not all, of your images are being replaced by Reli and Misk. I have seen them before they were replaced, and they were not really good. For now it will be a No, but don't be afraid to reapply once you familiarize yourself with PS a bit more. :)
MegaPanchamTalk 16:18, July 22, 2014 (UTC)

Understood. Is GIMP an acceptable alternative to photoshop?~The Wallflower~Wendynan22:40,7/22/2014

You can even use paint! As long as the images are HQ enough. :)
MegaPanchamTalk 03:13, July 23, 2014 (UTC)

I've improved (basing this on the fact my images aren't deleted/replaced anymore lol), so would it be alright to reapply? If so, do I alter this form or post a new one?~The Wallflower~Wendynan20:46,8/3/2014

Your gifs still need a little more improvement. They are too fast (the frames). And I haven't seen you upload good quality images from the anime.
MegaPanchamTalk 00:19, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

Because Red said I should ._. XDDD

No I'm sorry, but your images don't even follow our policies. Miskos3 Message 16:13, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

No Your images, as well as the few edits you've done break multiple policies of this wiki. Furthermore, you've made a huge mess here... Miskos3 Message 16:13, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

Not sure if you need this, but...

Hey, thank you for your application! I have only a few tidbits: the gif looks good, but it's a little... laggy? Have you made it in Photoshop? If so, I suggest putting no delay between the frames. As for the static images, not sure if you've noticed, but the Fairy Tail episodes have black lines on both the left and right sides, those should be removed. Furthermore, they could use a bit of improving in Photoshop, personally, I play with levels, vibrance and saturation. However, gotta make sure not to overdo it and change the colors into something too different! Anyways, if you can try and fix these issues, I think you're good to go! If you need more specific help, feel free to drop a message on my talk page or catch me at chat. Miskos3 Message 08:56, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

Oh OK! Yeah, I forgot to set no delay. T.T To be honestly, I didn't notice the episodes have black lines on the side until you mentioned. Do you want me to reedit the images and the gif again? If so, I am more than happy to do so. Video Games Lover 22:27, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

Yes, if you can! Just upload them as new versions of the current ones :) Miskos3 Message 22:32, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

Alrighty! I change everything like you asked for. Hopefully the images look fine. Video Games Lover 23:12, March 27, 2015 (UTC)
