New file uploads Edit
Please be sure to add the proper formatting to new image uploads, as stated in our Image Use Policy, before uploading any further images. Mainly context, links, citation, copyright info and category. Thanks.--Alan del Beccio (talk) 13:50, October 2, 2017 (UTC)
- In addition, please note that screen captures should be provided in .jpg format, per MA:IMAGE. Thank you. -- Michael Warren | Talk 16:08, October 2, 2017 (UTC)
- I have temporarily blocked you as you do not seem to be heeding the above instructions regarding image uploads. These steps are important for legal and other reasons. If you post here that you have read and understand the above, the block will be lifted. If you do not understand the instructions, please ask and/or read MA:IMAGE. 31dot (talk) 18:33, October 11, 2017 (UTC)
- Furthermore -- you NEED to put descriptions onto these images and citations as to source (ie, which episode/film/etc are they from). These things are REQUIRED. The MA:FILE link that's in your welcome message above and in the text above 2-3 times covers all of this. -- sulfur (talk) 11:56, October 24, 2017 (UTC)
- Finally, when you replace images (ie, upload a new version), if it is from a different episode than the prior, you MUST update the episode citation. -- sulfur (talk) 12:02, October 24, 2017 (UTC)
