Help Displaying Images

Notice: For the purpose of this policy,
terms picture(s) and image(s) are 
interchangable and refer to the optical  
counterpart of an object produced by an
produced by an optical device (as a lens
or mirror) or an electronic device, a
visual representation of something: as 
(1) a likeness of an object produced on
photographic material or (2) a picture
produced on an electronic display (as a
television or computer screen) or 
(3) an image of an image.

Image Requirements

  1. Images are to be given a descriptive name (for search purposes) ie; instead of calling a picture of a knife "SMK1.png" call it "Knife.png".
  2. If a description contains more than one word, use spaces between each word ie; StolenWeapons.png should read "Stolen Weapons.png".
  3. Image Descriptions should reflect the name of the object exactly as the game object (including capitalization and punctuations) to facilitate search functions.
  4. Image names and pictures are not to contain a number regardless if the picture itself represents more than one. ie; If the picture shows 2x Knives then remove the 2x using an external editing program. This will facilitate using a master picture for several locations throughout the wiki.
  5. If you are unable to remove a number on a picture, email the picture to the Admin Staff for modification and upload.
  6. To identify a requirement for more than one item ie; 2 knives you can place the requirement in the image tag like so: [[image:knife.png|Knife x 2]]. That way when a user places their cursor over the image they will see the amount for that item.
  7. A search of existing pictures should be conducted prior to loading a new picture (to prevent possible duplicates).
  8. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCE should duplicate pictures be loaded into the site database.
  9. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCE should you remove (or attempt to remove) any image not uploaded by yourself. Users who deliberately remove pictures placed on the site by others may be banned.
  10. Images are to be formatted in the .GIF, .JPG or .PNG format only.
  11. If you do not have the capability of creating an image in the .GIF, .JPG or .PNG format, email your picture to the Admin Staff for modification and upload.
  12. Authorization to exceed specified limits must be obtained in writing from any Admin Staff and proof of authorization must be emailed within 24 hours to the Administrator upon request from any Administrator
  13. Image sizes are specified in Pixels with the Width given first and Height given second (W x H)
  14. Unless specified smaller, uploaded images such as:
    1. Icon images may not exceed 75 x 75
    2. Avatar images placed on profile pages may not exceed 250 x 250, placed elsewhere they may not exceed 150 x 150

    5. Screenshots may not exceed 800 x 800
    6. Photo Gallery images may not exceed 1200 x 1200

Authors of these articles must have prior written authorization to deviate from the standards specified. To verify written authorization CLICK HERE.
