The article is a guideline about uploading images to the Gaiapedia.


Do not use the Wikia as an image host-!!

• All images must have the appropriate license placed onto their file page.
• Licenses are selected from the drop menu on the upload page, so there is no excuse for not adding a license.
• Images uploaded without the proper tags may be deleted and users who repeat these actions will be warned and possibly blocked.
• Do not upload indiscriminate images or manipulated images. If they serve no purpose to the wiki then they will be deleted.
• Personal pictures unrelated to the intent of this wiki or will be of no use, must be hosted to an image hosting site such as Photobucket, Tinypic, or Imgur. If you require help on how to embed hot linked images then please contact the administrator or use the code provided.
• Please understand, this wiki prefers on topic media rather than uploads done at random for User page decoration.
• Do not upload your personal fanart or graphics unless it has significant purpose to the wiki and its current articles that is the exception.
• Do not upload various screen caps or images of zOMG! or Monster Galaxy, each of these have their own respective wikis: zOMG! wiki and Monster Galaxy wiki. There are exception! When it is necessary for event articles, reported updates, and to illustrate what is often hard to describe in words.
• Do not upload pornographic materials. This goes against Wikia 'Term of Use' and is just outright inappropriate.

  • Please give uploaded images suitable and descriptive names. The following example names are common with new wiki contributors and due to it being common it will cause an uploading conflict, they will be renamed or deleted if discovered.
• Uploads with titles such as these are unacceptable. ofhgkdhgvk33tr35634vnih., 1234567890., thisismyimageblah., image., IMG., untitled., 1.png   and so on.

  • Notice that due to Gaia Online having over 65 thousand item images (and continuing), there is a request that certain item images such as event items and evolving stages - be combined into one image before uploading. This is to cut down on the amount of Gaia item images on the Gaiapedia.
    If help is required, please talk to the administrator.
