  • Just for future references, please try to upload all images in a png format with a proper name (so a name adhering to the English rules of spelling and grammar). You don't have to go around "fixing" your previous uploads, I'll do that later on when I'm back from work, but I just thought I let you know.

  • Hello there! I've seen that when creating articles you add categories one by one. This is not the way to do it and could come as badge editing which is not something we accept. In case you didn't know this, you need to add all categories and then click save. Thank you.

  • Hi there! First of all, thank you for your efforts adding images to our graphic novel pages. Though secondly, we generally don't add entire page as images, preferably opting for a more focused shot (as you can see with the other images that are on that page). We generally try to highlight a single frame that depicts the most important scene relating to the paragraph it's placed with. Additionally, please do not forget to source the images you've already added. Thank you :-)

    • Oh okay, thanks for letting me know. should I replace the photos I added with more specific panels?

    • And how do I source the images?

    • More information about how to correctly source your images can be found on the {{imagebox}} template, the S.O.S. editing guide, the image policy, and the fanon starters guide.

      In general, this is what you need to know:

      | description = 
      | film        = 
      | series      = 
      | season      = 
      | episode     = 
      | source      = 
      | origin      = 
      | cats        = 
      | license     = 

      The above is the standard imagebox that you need to add to the file's page and fill out in order to license it correctly. There are several parameters, and each one has its own way of being filled out.

      1. Description: A short description of the image, preferably with some context.
        • This means that you just have to briefly described what is visible in the picture. Note, you don't say what the image is used for, you say what it actually is in it's original context. For example, if I were to use an image of Korra waterbending in my fanon to cover a character name Shanti, the description still has to read something in the lines of "Korra waterbending" and not "Shanti wanterbending".
      2. Film: use numerals (1-3).
        • This refers to The Last Airbender film, so unless you use an image taken from that movie, you don't use numerals here. However, if you have taken an image from let's say The Lion King, you can write it down here as well, and then the words will show up, indicating the movie you took the image from.
      3. Series: 1 for Avatar: The Last Airbender; 2 for The Legend of Korra;
        • Same as with the movie, only use the numerals if you have taken your image from either series. If you took it from another series, just write down the name of it.
      4. Season: use numerals (1-3).
        • Even if you're not dealing with an image from either Avatar show, you can still just write down the number of the season you took the episode from. It will then just remain a number in the imagebox, but that's okay.
      5. Episode: use numerals (1-21).
        • The numerals here will only work if you have filled in a numeral for the "series" parameter, meaning that they will only work when you're dealing with an image from either Avatar shows. If you are dealing with an image taken from another series, you just write down the name of the episode the image is taken from.
      6. Source: "HD" for High Definition captures; "DVD" for DVD captures; "TV" for TV screenshots.
        • Pretty straight forward as well.
      7. Origin: If taken from other site, state it like so: [url Site Name].
        • If you haven't taken the screenshot yourself, this is one of the most important parameters to fill out. Just copy/paste the link to the place on the other site where you found the image. Note, it needs to a direct link to the place where the image is, not a general link to the site as a whole.
      8. Cats: subjects appearing on the image (e.g. Aang|Katara|Sokka|).
        • If your image does not detail anything related to Avatar, you can leave this empty.
      9. License:
        • This is the most important part of licensing and must always be filled out. There are several licenses that you can use, but I'll list the one's you're most likely to use at some point.
        1. "canon" for non-free images of the series;
          • You'll use this licensing whenever you upload an image taken from either Avatar show and it is to be used on one of the canon pages.
        2. "fanon" for non-free images of the series used only on fanon pages;
          • This licensing will be used for any image you use on a fanon page that comes from either the Avatar series, another series, or a movie.
        3. "fanon-self" for non-free, user-made drawings used on fanon pages;
          • This licensing is for fan-art that is based on a copyright protected movie or series. Basically, every drawing or computer-made image that is made by yourself (or another artist, like someone on DeviantArt or Tumblr or whatever) that has made fan-art from something in Avatar or from another series/movie will receive this category.
        4. "self" for self-made images that are not based on anything in the Avatar universe and can be shared though with proper attribution;
          • This licensing is also for fan-art images, though it is for the ones that have nothing to do with copyright protected material. So you'll use this whenever you've uploaded and used an image made by yourself or someone else of something like a tree or a completely self-made person that has no Avatar-inspiration clothing wise or whatever.
      10. artist:
        • Although not standard a part of the imagebox coding, as it is only relevant for when you're licensing a fanart image, you should manually add an addition parameter artist to credit the artist responsible.
