    • are you talking about this one ? I think you deleted the first one in which I know I didn't put any information aside from Fair Use so I uploaded the picture a second time and I filled out the information.

    • Ah, I see. I hadn't realized there were duplicates uploaded. The one you filled out looks good to me. Thanks for clearing up the confusion!

      Edit: You can disregard the warning issued above. The 24 hour grace period still applies in your case.

  • A few notes about your recently uploaded images here & here:

    • The proper names of the image source & author must be provided as the link text. For example, if the link points to deviantart.com/sebolto, it must be formatted as
      [https://www.deviantart.com/sebolto Sebolto], not just
      [https://www.deviantart.com/sebolto]. Otherwise, the link ends up parsed as [1], which makes it difficult to see the information at a glance without hovering over the link or navigating there in the browser.
    • In both cases, you did not transclude the Fair use template properly, resulting in a red link. Per the "Sourcing and licensing" section of the Image Policy, the Information template must have the proper licensing template transcluded within for the image to be considered fully licensed.
    • The author you provided for the first image is not correct. The image in question was made by QAuZ, not Gabriel Gajdos.

    Please be aware that the images above are not considered properly sourced & licensed until these issues are addressed. I'll give you 24 hours from the posting of this message to rectify this. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks & happy editing! (:

    • I prefer that people learn from an example and are able to keep their images in the process rather than not know how and have to try again and see if it is right. Either way, glad you are willing to learn to do it the right way and will try in the future. See you around.

  • 14WA Hey there! I'm Sebolto, a host of this year's edition of the annual Star Wars Fanon Wiki Awards! You are receiving this invitation because you are an active contributor here on Star Wars Fanon or because you participated in last year's event. On behalf of the hosts, I'd like to invite you to take part in this year's Wiki Awards in celebration of the best fanon & fan fiction our wiki has to offer!

  • Let's talk about this article.

    You have four related categories: Hybrids, "Near-Human Hybrids", "Near-Human hybrids", and "Near-Human Hybrid". Of these, only one is allowed. Per the Categorization Policy, when an article is technically part of both a specific and a larger general category, only the specific one is added; for example, an article about a Jedi Knight would be categorized with Jedi Knights, but not the more generic Jedi.

    For the others, since they're all ostensibly the same subject, it should be obvious that only one of them can exist. It is not proper to add categories that don't exist, or to take the scattergun, "Well, one of these must be right, I'll add them all and see what sticks" approach. There are four ways you could have solved this:

    1. Brute force: Go to the search bar at the top of the page and type Category:Near-H (or just start typing on a page and type [[Category:Near-H. The only results that come up are "Category:Near-Humans", "Category:Near-Human Hybrids" (the winner here), and "Category:Near-Human species".
    2. Logical process of elimination + brute force: There should never be a "category of one"—a category which only contains (or, even worse, only applies to) one article. As a result, you could have deduced that "Near-Human Hybrid" was wrong because it was singular, not plural. After that, you'd have to brute force between "Near-Human Hybrids" and "Near-Human hybrids".
    3. Tedious examination: If you have a lot of time on your hands, you can always consult Special:Categories for a list of every category on Star Wars Fanon.
    4. Do it wrong, then fix it immediately: Although it's not preferred, it's also possible to publish the article with the right category and the wrong ones, then click all the links to see which category is the right one and go back in to Edit and remove the others.

    By any of the above methods, you find Category:Near-Human Hybrids is the actual category, so the others have to go. I'll leave that to you to get done promptly.

    Also, take note that, while users are allowed a category of their works, the correct syntax is "Articles by [user]", not just "[user]". To that end, I've deleted "Skullguy123" as a category on your eight articles, created Articles by Skullguy123, and added it to those articles.

    Reply to this message if you have any questions or need clarification.

    • This is now the second time I've notified you about syntax for a user category; to repeat, "the correct syntax is 'Articles by [user]', not just '[user]'". I deleted your category "Skullguy123" from the nine articles on which it appeared; worse, eight of them already had the correct category, Articles by Skullguy123. I added this category to the one article missing it. I also cleaned out the improper categories in Alexander Morrison.

      If you have any questions, ask; I am happy to explain anything that isn't clear. That said, if you continue to add improper categories, you will receive a block in accordance with the Blocking Policy.

    • If you mean where you put the categories at below like if the character is male or female, I used "Skullguy123" instead of "Articles by Skullguy123" because whenever I try to add the latter it doen't let me save it to the page

    • You won't see it on the page; it's what's called a "hidden category". User-based categories don't appear visibly on the pages that belong to them. For example, see here and here and here; all my articles, all in Articles by Sakaros if you look for them, none have that visible. They're not supposed to.

      As you see here, there are articles in your user category.

  • I noticed your recently uploaded image here isn't sourced or licensed in accordance with the Image Policy. The "No source" and "No license" templates have been added accordingly.

    Please see this section of the Image Policy for all the details about what's required to comply with the Image Policy, in respect of the rights and work of the artists who create images. You can find a step-by-step guide to sourcing, licensing, and uploading here; special guidance for fixing an existing image is in Step Four. Please also note that, per this section, the image may be removed if it isn't sourced and licensed within twenty-four (24) hours.
