The official and formal guidelines concerning about uploading images into the Black Clover Wiki.

Using Images

  • Any picture or .gif that is uploaded and has not found a use (either on an user page or in the articles) within 2 days of that picture or .gif being uploaded can, and will be deleted.
  • When the "Upload a new version of this file" function is used to upload a higher quality resolution of a given image file, that image file is to be notified to the admins so that the older version of that file can be removed from the history stack. In addition, if a higher quality duplicate of an existing file is uploaded under a different filename, the old lower quality file is to be notified for deletion to prevent image duplication.
  • Image Placement: Images may be placed on top of a paragraph, either on the left or the right. Image should be placed every two paragraphs, i.e. a paragraph gap between images, in order to avoid an overcrowding of the section and to ensure a neat and aesthetically good-looking article.
  • Battle Prowess Section Picture Placement: Images may be placed on either the left or right of an article, except in the case of the Battle Prowess section, in which they should only be placed at the bottom in a form of gallery. This section has a organized structure with bullet points, and any images on either left and right will disrupt that order.
  • Image Sources: Only images from official sources, such as the manga, anime and databooks, may be used in the articles.
  • Size: There is no set size for images on the wiki, but they are generally placed at 200px.

Uploading Images

General Notes

  • This Wiki accepts all type of images but prioritizes on RAW images. All scanlated images will be deleted upon the availability of the RAW version.
  • Images used in articles are generally to be .png.
  • Do not upload duplicates of images. All duplicates will be deleted. If you are unsure if an image has been uploaded before, you can search for it by going to Special:FileDuplicateSearch.
  • Do not upload any pornographic images or images containing inappropriate language. Doing so will result in immediate deletion of the image, and the uploader will likely be blocked without warning.
  • Only upload images you intend to use. If images are not used within two days, they will be deleted. You are welcome to re-add the images if you find a use for them.
  • Do not claim images as your own. Tabata Yūki and other official sources technically own all images from all Black Clover-related materials.
  • Fan art is only allowed on your User page, not on articles. Only the images that have no personal content or modifications from its original image, without additional personal contents, will be accepted.

Quality

  • Images are to be free of errors where possible. This means they should not contain mouse pointers and borders. Text in manga pictures, primarily dialogue of characters should also be removed if possible. This may mean physically erasing it yourself.
  • Uploading poor images will result in an image being deleted or re-uploaded without notification. A high quality, .png type, images are preferred at any circumstances.

File Name

The file name should be descriptive and concise of what the image actually depicts or is used for. Long strings of numbers or gibberish constitutes bad file names. However, file names that are vague in what the image is used for are also bad. An example of this would be naming a file Asta.jpg, when the use of the image is to highlight the cover of a chapter. This is because it is necessary to keep images clearly separated from each other, so users can search for the image by its file name. If it has a poor file name, duplicates are likely to be uploaded.

Legal Tagging

The copyright of all images remains with Tabata Yūki and anyone else who legally owns the material. It does not belong to the individuals who provide the manga scans. Regardless of what any other site or user may say, the copyright on these images always belongs with Tabata Yūki, Jump Comic, Shueisha, etc. No one else can claim that they own the image or can restrict its use.

With that in mind, all images that are uploaded need to be properly marked with their fair use tag and fair use rationale. Those that aren't may be marked for deletion with the {{No license}} or {{No Rationale}} tags.

Scrolling through the various licensing options available provides a description of what that particular template means. The ones that will most typically be used are General, Comic, and TV Screenshot. When adding an image, you need to provide a detailed {{fair use rationale}}. This means adding a description of what the image is about, the source, portion of copyrighted material used (i.e. page 6 of chapter 13), what the image will be used for (i.e. to illustrate articles), resolution (low, high, medium) and the replaceability, which should pretty much always say that it's replaceable, only with a similar image of higher quality and similar license status. You can add the {{fair use rationale}} template into the summary box.

Reuploads

Do not replace an image by uploading one with the same filename. Do not overwrite an existing image. Upload all images under a new filename. This is because the new image may have a different fair use rationale that may be needed, the image may link to multiple pages and the image may not need to be changed on all pages.

The only time when it is acceptable to replace an image with a new one is if you are uploading a fairly identical image of higher quality.

Deletion

Images will be marked for deletion if they are unused, have no foreseeable use, and/or violate any of the policies listed above. If you upload an image for use on your user page, but choose to no longer use it, tag it for deletion by using the {{delete}} template.

Any user is welcome to add the {{No license}}, {{No Rationale}}, {{Poor filename}}, {{Poor quality}} and {{delete}} tags to images to get an administrator's attention on an image that violates the policies outlined above.

Violations

Violators of this policy will be given initial warnings, while continued violations will result in a block of the users account.

Questions about this policy, or about any warnings or blocks received as a violation of this policy should be directed to an Administrator.

  • Images with the {{No Rationale}}, or {{No license}} must be fixed within 24 hours, or, in the case of a {{Poor filename}}, have an admin fix the problem before their photo is deleted.
