Image Upload Details Table[edit]

A few good things to know about uploading images at the wiki:

Image Upload Details Table
Topic Remarks
Uploading Images At this time, only registered users can upload images.
  • Images are uploaded using a command on the left bar labeled "Upload file."
Recommended Image Sizes Infobox images: maximum of 250 pixels in width
  • Top Right Symbols: No maximum, but recommend 150 to 250 pixels in width on average. Larger images may be appropriate for some articles.
  • Ship Images: Recommended maximum of 500 to 600 pixels in width... Otherwise they tend to butt against infoboxes.
  • Quality: recommend low to medium quality. Aiming for 200 Kb or less in size. Higher quality images may be justified in some cases.
  • There is a 2.0 Mb (2,000 Kb) limit to file upload sizes on the wiki.
Image Naming & Structure It is recommended that the name of the image, the artist, the source, and the date be included in the file name.

This is an imperfect example:

* FILE: Azhanti-FULL-IMAGE-CT-Fighting-Ships-Pg-31_04-Sept-2018a
Image Location in an Article It is recommended that images be located under a subheading called:
  • Image Repository
  • They are typically numbered with a break between the caption and image.
  • Other formats are perfectly acceptable as well.
=== Image Repository ===
# Caption <br> [[File: TBD.jpg]]

<br> = break

[[File: TBD.jpg|left]] image left
[[File: TBD.jpg|center]] image centered
[[File: TBD.jpg|right]] image right
[[File: TBD.jpg|400px]] 400 pixel sizing limit
Adding a Caption to an Image There are many ways to add a caption to an image. The below code are among the simplest and most effective ways of doing this.
[[File: TBD.JPG|thumb| TBD is a TBD.]]

Image Tags Some of the tags we use to mark and categorize images:

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Traveller RPG Wiki is still building an image library that covers but a small percent of what is available from Traveller's nearly 2,000 publications.

  • The #1 rule is to make sure that the image owner and/or creator has given consent to the image being uploaded here. Please directly ask the image owner / creator and keep a written or electronic record of the permission being given. You may be asked to provide that proof of permission. Be on the right side of copyright.
  • The wiki has permission from FFE and several other publishers to use their images in a non-profit way subject to the images being taken down upon request.
  • Still, you should ask before you upload an image. A wiki moderator may be able to help you with this.
  • Many artists have been generous to share their images with the wiki and it's customary to include a hyperlink back to the artist's site and to refer potential business to an artist if they are ok with that. Just ask.

Fan Art Submissions[edit]

The wiki welcomes fan art and will accept most image donations. Images must be family friendly and avoid overly sexual themes. Just contact a moderator if you have any questions.
