|This page is an official Dead Space Wiki policy.|
Dead Space wiki allows for the uploading of images for use on article pages and user pages. To allow for the smooth operation of the site and to ensure that no one is offended, this guideline is in place for the uploading and usage of images and image contents.
Uploading images can be done at the Upload file page. How to do this can be found at the Image help section. However, some images are subject to immediate deletion if they are determined to serve no purpose, are offensive/inappropriate, or are against Dead Space wiki's productive spirit.
Images that can be DeletedEdit
An image uploaded to Dead Space wiki can be deleted if it is...
- Obscene- Dead Space wiki is not a censored website, and the target audience for the Dead Space universe is 17 years and above. However, all images that contain obscenities such as pornography, graphic real-world violence, or sexual acts are not permissible on the site, or on userpages. The developers of Dead Space do not produce such images, and thus they have no place on the site. These images also have great potential to offend other users. Repeatedly uploading such images can be grounds for blocking for vandalism as part of Dead Space wiki's Blocking Policy.
- Unused- Dead Space wiki is not a repository for images that are unrelated to Dead Space and unusable on article pages. Images that are uploaded by users for individual userpages will be added to their userpage and organized into an Image Category for proper use. If an image is not related to Dead Space whatsoever, is then uploaded and not used, it will be deleted.
- Duplicate- Dead Space wiki's image categories were created and organized so that users could find desired images relatively quickly and so that duplicate images are not uploaded. Though Dead Space wiki has unlimited space for images and articles, duplicate images create confusion and make organization difficult. Duplicate images that are uploaded will be deleted and redirected to the original image.
- Copyright Violations- Material copied from sources that are not public domain or compatibly licensed without the permission of the copyright holder (unless brief quotation used in accordance with non-free content policy and guideline) is likely to be a copyright violation.
