InstructionsEdit

  • Official media is the preference. Personal images are to be linked from an actual image hosting service.
  • Licensing is required for all images. Refer to the drop menu or Category:Images.
  • Images should receive descriptive names.
  • Avoid uploading duplicate images, unless the upload is of better quality than the current image.
  • Use the Summary box to link the original source of the image.

or

What to uploadEdit

You are allowed to upload images released for "fair use":

  • Software boxart - as this is released to advertise.
  • Promotional artwork - Concept art and full body art or otherwise.
  • Demonstration songs - Classified as "Promotional" also.
  • 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.
  • Non-promotional artwork by illustrators are acceptable, however, we must draw the line due to copyright and if the image is useful to the wiki or not.


What not to uploadEdit

  • Explicit images - are against Wikia's Terms of Use and will result in a warning or ban by this wiki's administrators or Wikia Staff.
  • Music videos - As stated in the image guidelines; this wiki is not a image or video hosting service.
    • Use a {{Derivatives}} template or hyperlink to link videos for personal use.
    • The only acceptable embeds are official promotional videos and tutorials via YAMAHA or related companies.
  • If a studio objects to a image being on the wiki, the wiki will remove it and cannot add it back.
    • 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.
  • Barred images include the following:
    • 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.
