This page is considered an official policy on Hyouka Wiki.
Please read through the policy below to familiarize yourself with our common practices and rules. Except for minor edits, please make use of the talk page to propose changes to this policy.

File use policy defines the rules which apply to the use of files on Hyouka Wiki.

In short:

  1. Obey our copyright policy when uploading files.
  2. Use the file description page to describe the file and its copyright licensing.
  3. The file description page should also be used to add the file to any file categories.
  4. Give file a clear, understandable name, not something like "5872895629.jpg", "Screenshot-001.png", etc.
  5. Before uploading, check if this file had been already uploaded. Duplicate files are not allowed.
  6. Upload only files related to the official production (files related to doujin works, AMVs, etc. are not allowed). Every file must have a use in at least one of the wiki's articles.

Also, when uploading an image:

  1. Use a correct format - JPG or PNG (in some cases SVG is also allowed).
  2. Don't include any watermarks or text in the image
  3. (In case of manga) use original manga fragments, not scanlated ones.

File management

To replace file, use the "Replace" link on the file description page.

Renaming files

  2. Add the {{delete}} template to the file description page. Don't forget to specify reason for deleting.
