Welcome to the Gravity Falls Wiki's Image Guidelines.

Please refer to the Gravity Falls Wiki Guidelines for more information.

Introduction

This page will answer many of your questions pertaining to images on this wikia. If you can not find your answer please ask an administrator.

Uploading images

Format advice

There isn't a general rule on which format use, but the JPG format is best suited for color images, since it's a web format meant to have a good quality/size ratio, while the PNG format can be used for black and white picture, since it provides high quality and doesn't increase the size so much for gray-scaled images.

Image information

When you upload an image on this wiki, please provide the necessary information on the file's page by creating different section, such as:

  • Summary: this is an optional field where one can provide information on the image and the meaning or purpose for it.
  • Source: this information is important and helpful, so specify where the file comes from. For example, the volume/chapter if a manga picture, the episode if an anime screenshot or the sites if you took it from internet.
  • Licensing: please provide the right license for each image.
  • Categorization: after you upload a file, add the categories by the button at the bottom; creating a section for it isn't necessary. If you don't know which category is right for the image, try to use other similar images as a guide.

Acceptable and unacceptable images

Acceptable

  • Screenshots of a single frame from the show and panoramic images.
  • Animations showing a single event from the show.
  • Fanart showing a single symbol used with the consent of the original maker, used where the show or a press release could not provide a decent enough image.
  • File extensions: .JPG, .GIF, .PNG this is standard requirement for the wikia and many file extension types (such as .BMP) are not uploadable.

Unacceptable

  • Fanart of any form - from fan color images to full character depictions, though there is one exception (see "Acceptable").
  • Doctored images of any form.
  • Images unrelated to this wiki. We're not an image hosting site like Flickr, which exists for this purpose.
  • Animations showing more then one event.
  • Watermarked images, these are claimed by an owner as their property and they may be offended if the image was taken without permission.
    • Note: TV, DVD and sub watermarks are excepted from this rule. However, no image taken from Youtube may be used.
  • Both porn and nudity.
