Media is defined as any sort of image on the wiki. The Bitten Wiki has a strict policy on what types of media are permitted.
General Rules Edit
File extensions Edit
- Due to .PNG file's lossless compression, they are the preferred file type on the The Bitten Wiki. However, .JPG files, while secondary, are also encouraged on the wiki.
- User made .gif files are permitted and can be uploaded, but must be of high quality.
Copyright Policies Edit
- Images on The Bitten Wiki are allowed by the Fair Use Doctrine of the United States Fair Use Law. This states that non-free images on this wiki are for educational or informational use only.
- Do to copyright, we do not allow images that are watermarked by anyone other than SPACE.
- This includes but not limited to: Spoiler TV, Zap2it, ksitetv, and any other website that features Bitten pictures.
Image Usage Edit
- Due to copyright issues and appearances, The Bitten Wiki prefers to use images sparingly, only when needed. Excess images communicating a similar idea will be removed.
- The policy on The Bitten Wiki is four images per scene.
- Continued violations of this policy will result in admin intervention or blocking of the user in question.
Image Relevance Edit
- With the exception of user pages, images published on The Bitten Wiki without relevancy to the show or the cast and crew will be deleted.
- All photos must be relevant to the page where it is posted, and it's title.
- An exception is photos relating to our affiliates, such as logos, which should only be uploaded by admins.
- Only images of the highest possible quality are permitted. Stretched or blurry images will be immediately deleted.
- Cropping and alterations of light or color are permitted only when they enhance or better communicate the picture message.
- For example, if an image contains a large amount of empty space around the main focal point, cropping the picture may enhance the image, and offer clarity on the subject.
- Watermarks are only permitted when no images are available without watermarks. When non-watermarked images are available, they are the preferred image type.
- Images can be replaced when a better version of the image exists. The replaced image must be identical to the previous image.
- Due to copyright issues, fan art is not permitted anywhere on The Bitten Wiki. Fanart for user pages must be approved by an admin, and must be of the users own making.
- This policy will be strictly enforced.
- Fanart is defined as any drastically edited images, graphics, and fan videos.
- Only videos released by The Space Network or videos containing official, exclusive content, of or relating to Bitten are permitted.
- Fan videos are NOT permitted, as addressed in the above policy.
User Pages Edit
User pages are allowed to contain any images as long as the images are not:
- Sexual/explicitly graphic
- Fanmade (see above policy)
- Gifs not from the wiki
- Containing inappropriate language
- Considered offensive in any way
User pages are a way for users to express themselves, and therefore, are allowed to contain images unrelated to Bitten, again, as long as they do not violate any of the the above conditions.
- Any user violating one of the above rules with be given a warning by one of the Pack Member (Admins). Multiple offences can result in being banned from the wiki.
- If you would like to report an offence, please contact an ADMIN.
