Welcome To The War Edit

Black Ops Logo welcome message

Welcome to the Call of Duty Wiki, Chauncbosh23.

Good to have you aboard at the Call of Duty Wiki, so here's some tips on how you can help:

Read our policies, if you haven't already. You'll be informed on the do's and do not's, as well as some guidelines when creating new articles.
Recent changes is a great second stop, because you can see what other people are editing right this minute, and where you can help.
The Manual of Style is a good place to see. It let's you know how to edit this wiki. It will give you the know-how to edit and make this wiki great.
The Sandbox is a great place to test things out if this is your first time editing wikis. It is advisable to know what is commonplace on the wiki, such as templates and categories, and how to use them.
Questions? You can ask at the Help desk, the "discussion" page associated with each article, or browse through the help directory. Feel free to contact an administrator for help; sysops' names are highlighted in green and bureaucrats' names are highlighted in cyan. Feel free to ask on my talk page as well; we take care of our friends, recruit!
Have feedback? The War Room is used to discuss changes to wiki or other community related issues. You'll need 50 main space edits to vote, Chauncbosh23, but your opinion is still appreciated!

I hope you enjoy editing on the wiki recruit! I am WHISKEY35, briefing's over - now get back to work.

"The act or practice of calling public attention to one's product, service, need, etc."

Welcome to the Call of Duty Wiki. Although everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions here, at least one of your uploaded files or recent edits did not appear to be beneficial to the wiki, and has been removed. Advertising includes, but is not limited to:

  • Uploading non-official videos which do not clarify the article in question, such as machinimas made by fans.
  • Uploading files ridden with logos from outside sources.
  • Uploading montages or gameplay videos which may glorify the uploader and do not contribute to the subject.
  • Making comments, edits, blogs or pages which promote any kind of service, product or 3rd party opinion.

Please do not use the wiki as a form of advertising, it is an encyclopedia, not a video sharing site. I strongly urge you to read the policy page to learn more about contributing constructively to this wiki. If you continue to advertise on the wiki, you will be subject to a block. Thank you.

Licensing Your Images Edit

We kindly ask you to please properly license all future images that you upload to the wiki. It is the sole responsibility of the up-loader to license any image he/she uploads to the wiki. When uploading an image to the wiki, towards the bottom of the page there is an option to add a license. Click on the drop down menu; there on the menu in the lower section, you will see "fair use and with permission" options.
  • For images that are game screenshots, use Copyrighted Media.
  • For non-game screenshots (pictures taken from the web etc.), use Fair Use.
  • For images that are not licensed, or images you have made yourself, use Public Domain.

You add the license to the image at the same time you upload it to the wiki. For more help and details, see here. If you have any questions please contact me on my Talk page and I'll be glad to help.

Bad Image Edit

An image you recently uploaded was considered to violate the image policy as it was one or more of the following:
Call of Duty Wiki logo warning template

  • Low quality
  • Contained a banned image effect
  • Concerned real life info, which is not generally allowed
  • Poorly named
  • Incorrect/lack of license
  • Duplicate file/superseded
  • Tampered with a photo-editing program

Please make sure you read the image policy to be sure of the protocols in place for uploading images.
You are still free to upload images; however, please make sure they are up to standards! Continued uploads that do not comply with the policy may result in a block.

I uploaded the Poster awhile ago, so it was a duplicate. Plus you didn't name it properly, nor did you license it. Please do so in the future. KUDLq.png 19:39, May 3, 2012 (UTC)
