Garo Wiki

This is the wiki's Image Policy. It describes the acceptable guidelines for the uploading and usage of images on the wiki.

Image Usage

Images are used on this wiki to illustrate articles and depict what often is hard to describe in words. To keep the wiki healthy, avoid questions of "misuse" of the wiki and to generally avoid sensitive image arguments we have certain guidelines and rules that should be note.

Unacceptable images can be considered vandalism, just as text can be considered if it is spam, offensive, or intentionally written wrong information.

Keep in mind that unsuitable or unused images can be deleted at any point without warning by an administrator.

Image Policies

Acceptable Images

  • Screenshots from episodes.
    • images should not have subtitles, watermarks, or editor credits.
  • In the case of a manga, images should be uploaded with no text in speech bubbles. If there is text outside of a speech bubble that would need to be redrawn, the raw (Japanese) version must be used.
    • Single panels or pages from the manga
    • Only the text outside of a speech bubble in a raw version doesn't need to be erased. The text inside a speech bubble must still be erased. 

Unacceptable Images

  • Collages
  • Fanart of any form, for any reason
  • Images with any kind of Fan-subs or English scanlated text
  • Images unrelated to Garo
  • Images with watermarks
  • Images for your profile should not be uploaded to the wiki. Please upload them to another image sharing site and import them here.
  • Porn, nudity and any other kind of image that shows explicit scenes, even if it's from an official source, according to Fandom's Terms of Use.

Image Info

When you upload an image on this wiki, please provide the necessary information on the file's page, such as:

  • Description: optional field where users can provide information or observations on the image as well as its purpose.
  • Source: please specify where the file comes from, for example which Volume/Chapter/Episode, or if the image is a manga picture or an anime screenshot. Like everything in this wiki, it must be referenced.
  • For unreleased content, such as an upcoming movie or video game, do not list that as a source. Instead, list the official website of the content in question as a source.
  • For promotional material, please list the event, magazine or website it hails from as a source, not the content that is being promoted.
  • Licensing: please provide the right license for each image. See the next section for more information.



Almost every image on this wiki is copyrighted and used under fair use. If the image comes from the tv show, manga, anime, a cover or any other merchandises, then add the template {{Fairuse}} in the "Licensing" section.

Image Naming Policies

  • The image name must describe what the image is.
  • No random string of letters, words, or numbers.
  • Put spaces between words when appropriate.

Image Advising

Image Replacing

Any image on a page can be replaced by uploading a new image with the same name. Editors do not need permission or explanation to replace an image on a place. However, what you consider a better image may not be considered a better image by other editors. You should not replace an image with another image of lower quality. If a protected image is in need of replacement, ask if it should be replaced on the talk page.

Image Wars

This is when editors are constantly changing images on a page from one version to another. In the event of constant reverting between two revisions of the same image, the most useful or related image to its intended use will be chosen, or in the event of neither image being of satisfaction, both images may be rejected for another image. If you feel the other editors are making a bad choice, there is a choice to argue the point of the image, backing it up with support from the guidelines listed on this page. If the issue gets out of hand, one of the administrators will protect the page.

Duplicate Images

This is when the same image is uploaded twice or more to a wiki with a different name. All version of this image except for the first will be deleted.


These are some things considered as image vandalism:

  • Uploading Fan-art or anything not related to Garo
  • Uploading images with Fan-subs or English scanlated text
  • Image Warring (Constantly changing the image of a page.)
  • Duplicate images
  • Collages or pictures together
  • Pornographic images
  • Fake or spoiler images
  • Uploading images and not using them.
