Use the form below to upload new image files for use in illustrating your pages. On most browsers, you will see a "Browse..." button, which will bring up your operating system's standard file open dialog. Choosing a file will fill the name of that file into the text field next to the button. You must also check the box affirming that you are not violating any copyrights by uploading the file. Press the "Upload" button to finish the upload. This may take some time if you have a slow internet connection.

To view or search previously uploaded images, go to the image category. Uploads and deletions are logged on the upload log.

To include the image in a page, use a link in the form [[{{ns:image}}:File.jpg]], [[{{ns:image}}:File.png|alt text]] or [[{{ns:media}}:File.ogg]] for directly linking to the file.


Uploading policy

Images

  • Game covers, screenshots, official art, or any other picture of something that Koei probably made is asserted to be fair use on this site since they are not being used commercially. Therefore, you do not need to check to see if you can use it.
  • Try to cite the source of where you found your image in the Caption or Summary box if you took it from a website. Personal image scans are exempt.
Character image uploading
  • Aim to upload unique appearances only. Multiple images of the same outfits/appearances will be deleted.
  • Limit the number of promotional images to just a single render and polished artwork per character per game appearance to avoid showing favoritism for a particular version of the character and overloading the character gallery with redundant images.
Fanart
  • No fanart in the wiki main space. Please only use them for your own personal user pages.
  • If you want to upload fanarts and pictures of fan-drawn comics, you must first obtain permission from the artist or writer. They own the copyright to their work, and using fanart does not qualify as fair use because it is not canon, and it is disrespectful to the artist.
  • If you want to upload your own fanart, you MUST assert that you drew it.
  • If you want to upload any other images, such as doctored images and graphs, you should release them under the Creative Commons license.
  • The following images are subject to Deletion:
    • Hentai
    • Any copyrighted image for which ALL of the following apply:
      • Someone other than Koei or one of Koei's designers owns it
      • The image is not used in mainspace or templatespace (or is used in those places for reasons other than commentary, description, or parody, all of which are fair use)
      • You didn't obtain permission to use it
    • Racist or obscene pictures
    • Goatse or other shock images
    • Duplicate images or images with nonsensical file names

Naming and Categorizing

Please decide on a sensible file name before uploading. For example, an image of Lu Bu in Dynasty Warriors 6 should be called something along the lines of "Lu Bu Dynasty Warriors 6.jpg", and not "19423-432.jpg".

Remember to categorize the image when uploading it. Categorizing images can be done before you upload an image. Simply type in the Caption or Summary box the wiki code to categorize your image. Using the same example Lu Bu Dynasty Warriors 6 image, you would type: [[Category:Dynasty Warriors 6 Character Images]] in the aforementioned box before you hit the upload button. Categorizing can also be done after you upload an image by visiting the image page itself, hitting the edit button and typing the same wiki code.

Fanarts or personal user page only images are exempt from these naming and categorizing restrictions.
