Etrian Odyssey Wiki:File policies

From Etrian Odyssey Wiki

This is an enforced policy on Etrian Odyssey Wiki. This means that this page details the standard that all editors are expected to follow. To suggest any changes to this policy, please refer to the talk page.

When uploading an image or file to Etrian Odyssey Wiki, there are certain standards for naming and categorizing them that you are expected to follow, in order to keep everything organized consistently and make it easier for editors to find and use the image. This page sets out and explains those standards, and includes some examples to help you on your way.

If you have any questions or need clarification on anything, feel free to contact an administrator.

File deletion policy

The vast majority of images you may wish to upload will be perfectly acceptable. However, if an image violates any of the following conditions, it will be deleted.

Copyright violation
  • Images which have been stolen from another site without the original owner's permission and/or proper attribution and licencing will be deleted, as this constitutes violation of copyright.
Duplicated file
  • Images that are duplicates of another file on the wiki will be deleted, as there is no need to have two copies of the same image. The image of higher quality will be kept, or if the two files are of identical quality, the image already in use will be retained.
  • If an image is replaced by one of superior quality, the inferior image will be deleted when all references to it are removed.
  • Pornographic, spam, racist, and similarly offensive images will be taken down without notice.
Irrelevant to Etrian Odyssey Wiki
  • Images that can have no appropriate usage on Etrian Odyssey Wiki will more than likely be removed. These can include, but are not limited to, images intended for use in custom signatures, personal images not in use on a user page, and images only used in articles outside of Etrian Odyssey Wiki's coverage policy.
Uploader request
  • If the image's original uploader requests its removal, the image may be deleted.
