Talk pagesEdit

Hello HDL, welcome to the wiki! Awesome job on making the new page, it's really helpful. However, I just wanted to let you know that with regards to talk pages, what you posted isn't what would typically be posted. We prefer questions about the article in question, such as clarifications or image requests. Otherwise, welcome to the wiki, and keep up the great work! bionicle__unity_duty_destiny_by_cyberpictures-d6p3li2.pngLegos-Rule-15 Talk 00:54, June 19, 2016 (UTC)

Gator Page Edit

Could you please provide a source for the "Gator" page? Otherwise, I'll have to delete it as speculation. Capt. MillerTalk 06:05, August 15, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll rename the page to "Gator" Diallo as that seems to be a nickname. Also, no need to apologise for not getting the source, it does take a bit to get the hang of Wikia, but you'll get there. Capt. MillerTalk 06:20, August 15, 2016 (UTC)

Images Edit

Hey, all the images you've uploaded are incorrectly named and unlicensed. Also, due to their poor quality (low resolution e.g.), I've had to delete all except two of them. It is good that your uploading images, but we have to keep a high standard of quality on the wiki, and yours just didn't reach that criteria. However, I can see where you went wrong: when getting images from YouTube videos, only screen cap them in 1080p or the highest possible resolution. This should eliminate the poor quality which you're getting now.

In regards to naming and licensing, follow this policy and you should be fine.

Capt. MillerTalk 03:29, December 8, 2016 (UTC)

No need to apologise, I stuffed up uploading images when I first joined, so nearly everyone does it. Still, your endeavour is perfect! A majority of the IW pages need content and trying to fix that is exactly what we need, and the majority of your edits have been excellent, so keep it up! Capt. MillerTalk 03:59, December 8, 2016 (UTC)
I actually forgot that the current gen consoles can take ingame images, so that would probably be the best method for taking screen caps. Anyway, good luck with the images. Capt. MillerTalk 04:08, December 8, 2016 (UTC)
EDIT: By the way, before I forget to add this, always remember to end your messages with "~~~~" so it displays your sig. Capt. MillerTalk 04:10, December 8, 2016 (UTC)

Recent imagesEdit

Hi. Your recent images were deleted as they did not conform to our image policy. They were both badly named and incorrectly licensed. When uploading in the future please ensure to follow the naming and licensing rules as seen on the policy page. Failure to do so may lead up to a block if enough warnings are given. If you need any more help on image uploading feel free to ask myself, anyone on the Custodian team or Sysop team. Thanks.

05:38, December 9, 2016 (UTC)

Please read the policy I linked you above. It has everything you need in regards to image policy, and is laid out in the most simple way we can. 05:45, December 9, 2016 (UTC)
The naming is fine, but you used the wrong license. "Public Domain" doesn't mean you were the one to take the picture, it means you were the one to make the picture. Since you have taken a picture of Call of Duty, which is a copyrighted game, you need to use the "copyrighted material" license. 14:03, December 9, 2016 (UTC)

Infinite Warfare timeline Edit

Hi,

I saw you created a page for the Infinite Warfare timeline, I suggest you to use the Portal:Timeline/IW instead. Also I think we should use the Secession rather than the Secession War(s) as a time reference point. We know the IW story takes place 31 years after the Secession and we don't have many information about the war(s). We could use the format BS (Before the Secession) and AS (After the Secession). What do you think?

Concept art categorization Edit

Hey, Deathlord. Nice work on uploading some of the concept art. If it helps, I'd suggest taking an easier route and titling your concept files with the games they were in.

For example, your file of "NRC Models.jpg" should be "NRC models concept art BO3,jpg". And make sure to put your file in the category of either "Call of Duty: Black Ops III concept art" or "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare concept art" if it's from Infinite Warfare.

That's all, thanks.Louis Bancroft (talk) 13:12, August 7, 2017 (UTC)


Bad Edit Edit

An edit you recently made to a page was undone because it was either:
Call of Duty Wiki logo warning template

  • Incorrect
  • Contained poor English
  • Did not conform to Wiki policies
  • Unnecessary
  • Concerned real life info, which is not generally allowed
  • Contained speculation, which is not generally allowed
  • Opinionated
  • Featured a formatting error

Please read the Manual of Style and the policies in order to brush up on the style and professionalism that is expected on this wiki.
You are still free to make edits; however, please make sure they are up to standards!
Thanks!

An official video by Activision says that it takes place on Mars, which is why the location is listed as Mars. Assuming that it was a mistake by Activision is speculation. Please stop removing it. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 21:17, August 31, 2017 (UTC)


Naming imagesEdit

Please remember to correctly name your images. Having the title of the game that the image is from is helpful for future editors. Twig (Talk) wNJ2zkL.png 05:14, April 8, 2019 (UTC)

For clarification, it should be that way: "Venus Skyline IW.jpg", "GPMG Model WWII.jpg". Kilo 141 Beta menu icon MW Ultimate94ninja talk · contribs 09:25, April 8, 2019 (UTC)
Again, please add the game's initials at the end of the file name. For example "Nomad Model BO4.jpg", not just Nomad Model.jpg Kilo 141 Beta menu icon MW Ultimate94ninja talk · contribs 08:31, April 14, 2019 (UTC)

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.
Thanks!

Please can you name and license your images properly. You have already been told about this and ideally at this point your images should be deleted. However, as they have already been posted to the wiki pages, this will be done for you this last time. For help, see your previous messages and the dedicated help page: file rules. RooTm3q.png Soap Shadow · Talk  15:56, June 6, 2019 (UTC)
In addition, any game related images such as weapons fall under the Copyrighted Media license (Call of Duty game screenshots). RooTm3q.png Soap Shadow · Talk  16:31, June 6, 2019 (UTC)
 

Block Edit

Wiki
Due to your unacceptable behavior, you have been blocked for 2 hours for consistent image policy violations. You are welcome to come back and edit sensibly after the block is up; however, it is very strongly advised that you read and review our policies thoroughly before you start to edit again.

You've been warned far too much about violating the naming rules. Twig (Talk) wNJ2zkL.png 23:13, June 7, 2019 (UTC)
 
==Everything above is exactly why I should check my talk page a lot more==

Given my complete obliviousness in both checking this page and failing to follow the image policy (something I used to be good at doing)... I think I am gonna go on hiatus. I might return in the future ( and will likely be more capable with regards to naming images), but if anyone wants to do what I did (and preferably do a better job at it), I recomend checking Artstation as a considerable quanity of in game models and asset imges regarding this franchise have been recently uploaded to the site. I was going to post many of them today had I not seen just how much of a collosal mess I unintentionally created. So yeh, there's that.
