This is the Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama! Wiki Image Policy, if you upload or use any pictures, they must meet these conditions:
- The file should preferably be in .PNG-format. This is the best format for high-quality pictures.
- Images from the manga must always be blanked out for text. This means that all the text in the bubbles or anywhere in the panel, with the exception of backgrounds, must be erased.
- Why? Because the wiki wants images from the original manga and anime, and text from the scanlation-groups or subbers is not from the original manga/anime.
- Duplicated images will be deleted and their uploaders warned. Always check if the picture hasn't been uploaded first.
- Only official pictures are allowed. Don't upload fan art here, except if it's for a user page or blog.
- Images that have been edited (other than for simple resizing, cropping or blanking out), will all be deleted unconditionally.
- Rename the file before you upload it. Sometimes saved pictures are named out of completely random letters and numbers. Change them before you upload them. If this is not done, the file will be moved or deleted and the uploader warned.
- In regular articles, manga pictures can be displayed via a thumb, slideshow or gallery at a size no larger than 200px. Images of the .png and .jpg files that are uploaded on the wiki should be in the largest size possible, but also in the highest quality possible. This is not the same with .gif files, which must always be at 200px sizing. When using these images on articles, however, they will be placed at a much smaller size for thumbnails. All thumbnail images must be placed at a size of 200px, no bigger and no smaller. This applies to .pngs, .jpgs, and .gif files. However, when using images in infoboxes, they are placed at a size of 300px instead. This only applies to .pngs and .jpgs though. All .gif files, as stated above, must be at 200px, even in infoboxes.
- If an image is to be placed into an article, it must be placed next to a paragraph which has text illustrated by it. No exceptions.
The file name should be descriptive 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 Usui.jpg, when the use of the image is to highlight the cover of a chapter or an image of both Takumi and Misaki. This is because it is necessary to keep images clearly separated from each other and so users can search for the image by its file name. If it has a poor file name, duplicates are likely to be uploaded.
