This page outlines guidelines for images and videos uploaded and used here.


What images to use

When adding images to articles, prefer using official promotional pictures as they're taken by professional photographers and have a much better quality. If these can not be found, other images can be used instead.

Images in infoboxes

Images used in infoboxes are usually the most recent official picture for artists and the main cover for releases.

If you want to replace an image used in an infobox with a newer one, make sure to put the previous image in a gallery somewhere at the page.

Keeping images are an important part of archiving content. Images should only be removed from pages when uploading a better version or if they go against our guidelines.

Adding a video

To add a video from YouTube (or any other supported source) you will need to do the following:

  2. On this page, click on the "ADD A VIDEO" button (1). A window will pop up, requesting a video url. Paste your YouTube link on it (2) and click "ADD" (3).
    1. Once you do this, your video will be ready to be used in any page. If you refresh that page and scroll down you will see it listed under recent videos.
  3. To add the video you just uploaded to a page, you will need to copy its title, which is the same title the video has on YouTube.
    1. On the page, switch to source editor if you're not using it already and type this code to include the video:
