It's the F.N.G., sir. Edit
Welcome to the Call of Duty Wiki, recruit! There's a lot to do around here, so here's the briefing on how you can help:
I hope you enjoy editing on the wiki recruit! This is Bravo Six, out.
``When naming pictures, the title must be relevant to the image, such as File:Vasquez.jpg. Other images of Vasquez, such as :File:05.jpg, would not show up in search results and therefore harder to find. Image titles must be (in some way) related to the image itself.´´
If you want your image moved to a real name, contact me at user talk:Cakemix.

It would have been easier if you had made it RPG BLACK OPS HIGH QUALITY.png --Cakemix 19:35, March 6, 2011 (UTC)
Licensing Your Images Edit
- 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.

RE: Images Edit
I am fully aware of the differences between .jpg and .png, but I was under the instructions of a crat who told me NOT to convert these images into .png format. I understand you want to make them transparent, but opinions differ on these types of images, and I was simply doing what I was told. On another point, PNG takes a lot longer to upload, and I had to upload a large amount of images quite quickly, so please excuse my actions. 13:28, November 12, 2011 (UTC)
Hello good sirEdit
Hi THE GMoD. I noticed some of the transparent G3 pictures you uploaded didn't have a license, I licensed them for you. Remember to license them the next time. Oh and btw, what program do you use to have transparent backgrounds? GIMP, perhaps? T4DZ talk 01:24, November 23, 2011 (UTC)
- Thanks for the advice! I'll try at my dad's house (I got my PC there, I'm on a laptop), I won't be able to cut the image by hand with the touchpad (I can't use touchpads properly...).
- Hey, I tried to do it with my touchpad, did I do good?
- Not to bad, there are some minor spots of worry, and some areas (like the right side of the stock) that are a bit rough, besides that, looks pretty good.-----<THE GMoD - Admin - Founder - Slipknot.Wikia.Com>---- 22:03, November 23, 2011 (UTC)
First and foremost, thanks for all the high-quality images. If you want to upload multiple at once, try Special:MultipleUpload, from which you can also select the license (for these ones it's the one with "(use for game screenshots)". - MLGISNOT4ME [Talk] - 22:30, November 29, 2011 (UTC)
- I'm afraid you can't do that. Only rollbacks and admins have access to it. elmo's ramblings 22:41, November 29, 2011 (UTC)
- I apoligize for uploading any images without liscenses, mainly because I add the images through the gallery editor mostly, witch irritatingly enough does not allow you to set a liscense. I do attempt to remember though, to add the liscense code to the image page later, although occasoinly I forget. -----<THE GMoD - Admin - Founder - Slipknot.Wikia.Com>---- 18:08, November 30, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for the message. However, I wouldn't get angry about it. What other pages did you create these subpages for? Also, I do see your reasoning wholly, and I don't disagree; I deleted the page because I had not seen it before so I was not certain whether the topic had been discussed or whether it was acceptable to make such a page.
I would like to discuss this with others before restoring the page, but I will certainly get back to you about it as soon as I do. Shotrocket6 22:01, January 4, 2012 (UTC)
- I have just discussed it, and I will restore the page for you. Feel free to continue making the pages. Sorry for any harsh feelings thrown askew. Shotrocket6 22:05, January 4, 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry, I don't quite follow.
While the images were by no means amazing, and I have done better, I don't understand how stuff like this is acceptable, yet this is somehow horrific. Please explain.
I understand your concern, but it doesn't make sense that some things have to go and others, which appear worse, can stay.
Also, I didn't use the eraser tool. If I used the eraser tool, it would look like this.
Update: plus this is apparently "acceptable"...
Thanks, AugFC 13:43, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, once again I kind of understand what you're getting at, and I'm not going to put those specific images back on that page (like you said, the transparency is unnessacary) but:
Firstly, I do use Gimp 2.6.
Secondly, you can't, for example, delete an edit just because it hurts your eyes. I did show the pictures to other members on chat before I uploaded them and they seemed fine with them.
Thirdly, you still didn't explain why some stuff is acceptable, when it is appaulingly done, and other stuff, which is better but by no means perfect, is not.
Thanks again, AugFC 15:23, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
