About ImagesEdit

Images on this wikia are used for illustration purposes, to depict what is often hard to describe in words. Any other uses of the images, on Wikia or elsewhere, might be copyright infringement. The Vocaloid series and characters are property of their creators. All related titles, logos, images and characters are trademark and copyright of their respective owners.

Images here are on the English-language Vocaloid wiki, hosted on servers in the United States by Wikia.

Image QualityEdit

  • Format - There are several file extensions that can be uploaded to Wikis, with the most common being .JPG, .PNG, and .GIF
  • Size - When it comes to the size ratio of scanned work, please attempt to downsize ridiculously large images that can go over 1000x1000. Remember, large images can cause loading issues for others.
  • If an image you intend to upload already exists on the wiki, do not upload a new one, unless it is of better quality and/or higher resolution. While an image doesn't have to be HQ, LQ pictures may not be suitable for the intended usage, be aware images may be deleted or replaced without warning if a more suitable image is found, or if the image is unsuitable for its usage.



GeneralEdit

  • Do not use the Wikia as an image host-!!
• Personal pictures unrelated to the intent of this wiki or will be of no use, must be hosted to an image hosting site such as Photobucket, imgur.com or Tinypic. If you require help on how to embed hot linked images then please contact the administrator or use the following code provided.
• So a picture of yourself or a representation of yourself can be linked from a real image host, not uploaded to here.
<div align="center / left / right">LINK TO IMAGE</div>
• Or use the {{Imagehotlink}} template to link images and move them left or right.


  • Do not upload spam images.
• Do not upload indiscriminate images or manipulated images. If they serve no purpose to the wiki then they will be deleted.
• Do not upload someones fanart that was not meant to be displayed anywhere else besides its site of origin.
Meaning, if the image is for fair use then it is fine to use, however, if not then please respect the artist and leave the image on their site. Creating ref links will handle this if it ever comes up, though many fan artworks that are uploaded publicly is for fair use in many PVs or used as video placeholders.
• Only significant artwork and official artwork is acceptable on official Vocaloid pages and other pages, anything else will be deleted.
• Do not upload images of UTAUloids, this isn't the UTAU wiki. The only exception here is the article about Kasane Teto.
• Do not upload pornographic materials. This goes against Wikia 'Term of Use' and is just outright inappropriate.


  • Please give uploaded images suitable and descriptive names. The following example names are common with new wiki contributors and due to it being common it will cause an uploading conflict, they will be renamed if discovered.
• Uploads with titles such as these are unacceptable. ofhgkdhgvk33tr35634vnih., 1234567890., thisismyimageblah., image., IMG., untitled., 1.png and so on.


  • Please spare some thought about official images before you upload them, consider a few things;
• You are allowed to upload images released for;
Software boxart - as this is released to advertise and therefore complies with "fair use".
Promotional artwork - Concept art and full body art or otherwise. These are releases into the public sector to create interest or familiarity with the product. Therefore, these are fine.
Demonstration songs - Classified as "Promotional" also, but only 1 single frame per song, otherwise the wikia gets over loaded with images.
Merchandise - requires only one to two images. For manga related pages, only upload volume covers and never whole pages. If any artwork directly from a manga is used, only 1 frame is allowed per page and no more.
Screenshots of gameplay released by official sources are fine. Otherwise do not upload. We also make exception for modules like in the Project Diva games, but we do not excessively upload images of the game itself. Users who are interested should be encouraged to look up Nico Nico Douga or YouTube for further gameplay examples that mere images cannot show.
• Illustrators often produce work for non-promotional purposes as well as promotional. Sometimes we must draw the line because of this on if the image is useful to the wiki or not.


• If a studio objects to a image being on the wiki, the wiki will remove it and cannot add it back. We will attempt to explain why it exists on here to the studio, however, the wiki is not here to upset any of the studios as we support them.
• Note that the grounds for "Fair Use" does not give us the right to upload every image without consequence and this should never be used as an excuse for a particular image to exist on the wiki for the sake of it existing here.


• Most important of all is that editors should be aware that not every piece of promotional artwork is required to be on the wiki. If the artwork is not already on the wiki, it may because another editor felt it was not needed or alternatively it was forgotten. However, editors may choose not to upload a image because it does nothing for the wiki itself. More importantly, the more images we upload the more we have to explain why a image exists on the wiki.
• One example of this would be if, for example, the studio releases 17 images of a Vocaloid character. Normally, we only cover about 4-5 images at the most and are reluctant to upload all 17 of those images.



Images that are not allowed on this WikiEdit

This is a list of banned images which would otherwise normally be fine to upload, but due to requests made by studios, or the person addressed, we can no longer cover. We comply this list here on the wiki out of respect to the studios wishes, regardless of if it fits in with our "terms of use".

  • BIG AL and AVANNA's voice providers; related companies and providers themselves have asked us not to write (in detail) about them nor reveal their physical  appearance. Therefore, images or photos of them are also banned from the wiki and are forbidden to be uploaded also in regards to this.
