Uploading images can be done at the Upload file page. How to do this can be found at the Image help section. However, some images are subject to immediate deletion if they are determined to serve no purpose, are offensive/inappropriate, or are against Gearspedia's productive spirit.
Images that can be DeletedEdit
An image uploaded to Gearspedia can be deleted if it is...
- Obscene- Gearspedia is not a censored website, and the target audience for the Gears universe is 17 years and above. However, all images that contain obscenities such as pornography, graphic real-world violence, or sexual acts are not permissible on the site, or on userpages. The developers of Gears do not produce such images, and thus they have no place on the site. These images also have great potential to offend other users. Repeatedly uploading such images can be grounds for blocking for vandalism as part of Gearspedia's Blocking Policy.
- Unused- Gearspedia is not a repository for images that are unrelated to Gears and unusable on article pages. Images that are uploaded by users for individual userpages will be added to their userpage and organized into an Image Category for proper use. If an image is not related to Gears whatsoever, is then uploaded and not used, it will be deleted.
- Duplicate- Gearspedia's image categories were created and organized so that users could find desired images relatively quickly and so that duplicate images are not uploaded. Though Gearspedia has unlimited space for images and articles, duplicate images create confusion and make organization difficult. Duplicate images that are uploaded will be deleted and redirected to the original image.
- Does not have License Tag- All Gearspedia's Images should have a license tag selected. Those that do not have one are subject for deletion. Users are to either select the proper license tag from the drop down menu that is on the Upload File page or include it in the summary; using the drop menu is the preferable method but adding it in the summary to avoid deletion is acceptable. Users who do not properly tag their uploads will be given a warning and to add it to their summary and to use the drop menu subsequently, and repeated offenses by a user or those who do not comply will result with a one-week block.
