  • Could you please indicate what was the "false information" I included? Thank you.

  • I am trying to upload an image of Amazo being surrounded by Green Lanterns in order to include it the plot section of The Return. You keep deleting it. I am trying to upload by-the-book. Could you please tell me where I am going wrong?

    • The first time it was the lack of properly filled out template and the incorrect name. Then it was the exact same thing again. The "false information" thing is a standard dropdown reason and it was probably the least inappropriate.

      I just blocked you to grab your attention. While you've got the filebox down, we do not have those long, ugly filenames. Just a short description what happens will do. "Green Lantern Corps against Amazo" or something would've been enough.

      It is also the most meaningless! For all I know you blocked it because you thought the Green Lanterns were surrounding Homer Simpson, not Amazo.

      If a user is trying to contribute to an article and unintentionally committing errors, it would be a courtesy for an administrator to either correct those errors himself or inform the user of where he has gone wrong before blocking them.

    • I was about to write you a message after the second upload, got sidetracked and then saw you uploaded it a third time.

  • Hi, Intelspy. The image you uploaded to our database does not specify its source or licensing.

    • Source: You need to indicate where the image was taken from by using a {{filebox}}. In case of screenshots, and if you didn't grab them yourself, you need to acknowledge the site/person who did it. Also, please add a description of the screencap;
    • Licensing: If you have not created this media yourself, then you need to indicate why it can be used here. For this, you need to include the proper image copyright designation on the license field of the {{filebox}}. If you believe the media falls under the fair use doctrine, then consider reading up on it, and then use the proper fair use license (screenshot).

    If you uploaded other media, consider checking whether you specified their source and licensing, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded here.

    Note that it's your responsibility to properly credit the media you upload, and any unsourced and unlicensed image can be deleted if not correctly specified.

    Thank you.

    • OK, I restored the text but without the images. I might upload them later with source and licensing details. You could, of course, have simply removed the images yourself without undoing all my text work - or could have informed me earlier that that was the issue.

      Thank you.

    • The text had more issues than the images, (some of) which I included in the edit summary.

      and I needed a dictionary to translate! If you think my account is too long then how about just shortening it a bit? The previous version had too much of a mix of past and present tense and other issues which had to be corrected. But if you think my account is too long then by all means shorten it a little.

    • Concise is a normal word. Granted, oou isn't, but that's also valid. "characters" don't exist on this wiki. You don't solve those issues by putting it back in.

      A character bio doesn't need a play by play of every event. Even the present tense section - which I'm fixing now - is a bit too comprehensive.
