Hello, I'm Sakaros, Star Wars Fanon Administrator and host of the Fifteenth Wiki Awards! Since you've been an active contributor here on Star Wars Fanon in the last year, 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!
Your recent upload here is unsourced & unlicensed. Since you've already been made aware of the policy before, I'll just remind you that you have 24 hours from this message to add the necessary information. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks!
I've given you well over a day to add the requisite information, but the image remains unsourced & unlicensed. Since you've made an effort in the past to abide by the Policy, I'll give you one last day to address this issue before I remove the image.
I deleted this image due to no sourcing information being added within 24 hours of upload. As a warning, if I have to delete another image for lacking the requisite information, all further uploads without proper sourcing & licensing at upload time will be subject to immediate deletion.
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.
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 , 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 would use the name of the piece as the title. Since the artist titled that piece "The Light Fantastic," that's what you would put for the link title so as to show proper attribution.
For example, the link would be coded as... [https://www.deviantart.com/rahll/art/The-Light-Fantastic-209334111 The Light Fantastic] ...and would appear to viewers as... The Light Fantastic
Does that make sense? You can just copy & paste the coded link above into the proper template field.
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.
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!
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:
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".
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.
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.

Read the tutorial, which should answer all of your questions about sourcing and licensing. If you have a specific question about the tutorial after reading it, let me know and I'll try to clarify it further.
I inadvertently gave you a lot of extra time, but I have now deleted the image. Now this one and this one are also missing information. Please ensure source or license are added within 24 hours or they will be removed too. Further, this image is not only missing a source, but it is also not yours, so Public Domain is the wrong licensing template.
I think I fixed the image for Alexander and Syx's lightsaber but could you perhaps check them out? I don't know who made the picture of Alexander as i found it on the website that the links sends you to or what the original website that the picture came from so thats why I left the author/artist part blank. Also, I'm not entirely sure I picked the right liscense for both pics including the picture of Alexander's lightsaber that I just uploaded though I think I did
The saber one is almost perfect. Just separately bluelink the artist (so the link goes to his main DA page) and you're good to go.
For this one, I can't find the image on the source link you provided. Further, it seems to be a modification of this image (or vice versa). Without having the original source, it's impossible to determine which is the original image. "Book cover" only works as a license if it is a book cover; that, again, goes back to the original source. If it's not, though, fair use works.
Okay, I´m done with the pictures or at least I´m pretty sure I am. As for the authors, I don´t know how to have it where its just their name that leads to the main page so I just posted the entire link. Also for the image of Syx that leads to the authors main page, I just saw that most of their work could be considered as NSFW so I just thought I´d give you a heads up
Okay, 1 and 3 are all set. As for the author on 3, as long as you're not uploading NSFW material to this site, you're fine.
Intrigued by #2, I did some digging myself and finally unearthed this, which seems to be the source of the original image. I tweaked the source for you; since the image you're using isn't the original film poster, but the modified image, I think "fair use" remains the correct licensing template rather than the more specific "book (or, here, video) cover".
Okay, now we have a new problem: Thesetwo images not only lack sources, but you have also used the "public domain" license for them. Unless you created them yourself (and I am familiar with one of them, so I presume you did not), you have no authority to release them into the public domain. So, within 24 hours, you must:
For the first image, I can´t find the website where the picture is at so I can only post the link to the picture itself rather then the website but there is another website where someone made a character wearing the armor so is it alright if I posted the picture I have then add the link to the other picture
Okay, my suspicion is this: This website is the original source, and David Fernandez is the artist. The use of the image here (the link you provided) is nothing more than someone else stealing the image from Mr. Fernandez without credit.
I'm not really sure whats up with that one. When I first posted it, I did the image policy but when I looked at it again after a while there was nothing in it so I did it and saved it but when I checked it again there was nothing there. Didn't know what happened so I uploaded it again and did the summary again but there was nothing there when I checked it
Hmm, that is odd. I can see your Image Policy information when I consult the Edit History, but when I checked it the first time it definitely wasn't there. Good news is, enough of the Information Template was visible in the Edit History that I was able to pull it all and re-post it. It's good to go now (but NB that "Voylai'vaadi" is a redlink).
I was looking over the page for Alexander and saw something I didn't like so I went fixed it but when I pressed publish, this happened. I'm not entirely sure how it happened but I was wondering if there was a way that it could be fixed so that everything could go back to how it was or if i needed to redo everything again.
I think I've got it fixed for you. The infobox contained several References that weren't properly coded; you didn't have a "Notes and References" section on the page, so I just deleted the Reference coding and that did the job. Let me know if you need any more help.
Just a heads-up: In Canon and Legends, "Mandalorian" isn't a species, but a group. Of course, you can make it otherwise in your storyline if you prefer.
I got a question about the gallery. It works like it should at first as it allows me to add multiple pictures when I first click on it but when I try to add more once I've already posted the pictures, it won't let me and I basically need to delete the current gallery than redo it over again. I noticed that the same thing also happens on another fanon I'm on and I was wondering why is it like that
