Wiki

This is an official project page of Looney Tunes Wiki. This means that these are guidelines of our terms, which must be followed. Failure to follow these terms can result in anvil drops or account closures from this wiki and its affiliates.


Uploading Images and Videos

General Notes

  • Preferred image files should be in the .jpg or .png format. Generally, GIFs can be used when it is important to have the animation to explain or highlight a certain situation. However, GIFs are generally not preferable because they tend to be of low quality.
  • Do not upload duplicates of images. All duplicates will be deleted. If you are unsure if an image has been uploaded before, you can search for it by going to Special:FileDuplicateSearch. Type in a key word or two (such as 369 if you're looking for a cover image of chapter 369).
  • While we permit fan images (including fan colorings of comic scans) to be used for user pages, do not upload them with the intention of including them in any actual articles. We only use official images for articles.
  • Do not upload any pornographic images or images containing inappropriate language. Doing so will result in immediate deletion of the image, and the uploader may be eligible to receive an anvil drop/block without warning.
  • Only upload images you intend to use. You will typically be given around three days to use an image you uploaded. After that, they will be marked with the {{delete}} tag. If images are still not used within a week, they will be deleted. Users are always welcome to re-add the images if they have found a use for them.
  • Do not mark images as your own. Warner Bros. and other official sources may check this site to see if anyone is crediting their work as one's own. Warner Bros. technically own all images from the television series, comics, commercials, and all other Looney Tunes-related merchandise. You can't claim to own something that is legally someone else's. For public domain content, Warner Bros. still owns the rights to disable use for this content.
  • Especially do not alter any images of Looney Tunes cartoons, real people, TV show or theatrical posters, or production crew. Changing colors, adding watermarks, text, or making montages that corrupt the copyright owners' original work is considered to be a serious infringement. If the copyright owners are allowing us (wiki editors) to use their images, we should be respectful to their work and not alter them. We are lucky we even get to use the images in the first place.

Quality

  • On shorts pages, add this video to the {{Infobox Shorts}} template:
|video = [[File:Your Video Name Here|thumb|center|280px|whatever you wanna add]]

Videos not in the infobox should be the same. Videos in a gallery do not need to have this code as they are automatically formatted to fit a particular size.

  • Images are to be free of errors where possible. This means they should not contain mouse pointers, computer screens, and borders not created by WB/Turner/MGM. It's okay to have the logo of a TV channel on the image. Text from subtitles and text in comic pictures, primarily dialogue of characters and text added by the scanlators such as the name of the scanlation group, should also be removed if possible. This may mean physically erasing it yourself or finding a raw video instead of a subbed.

File Name

The file name must not contain profanity. If it does, it will be deleted without warning and the user who created or renamed the file may be eligible for a 2 week anvil drop.

Full Videos

Do not upload or link to full episodes of TV shows to the wiki, such as Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, or The Looney Tunes Show. Not only are these videos subject to removal from Warner Bros. for legal reasons, full episodes of TV shows are available on DVD, VHS, and/or on a variety of Internet sites that host the content, free or paid. We don't need to be one of those.

Do not upload or link to full videos of Who Framed Roger Rabbit or any of the Looney Tunes movies to the wiki, such as Space Jam, Looney Tunes: Back in Action, and The Bugs Bunny Road-Runner Movie. Not only do links to these videos tend to get taken down by Warner Bros. (or in the case of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Disney/Amblin Entertainment), doing so inches the site closer into iffy legal territories, as the movies are available to buy on DVD and on official venues such as iTunes. The full Looney Tunes movies and Who Framed Roger Rabbit are also available on a variety of Internet sites that host the content, free or paid, as well as Netflix and other streaming sites.

Because of their rare availability, the only videos that can be uploaded in full are cartoon short subjects (between 1929-present), advertisements short bloopers, and Webtoons (webtoons are allowed on YouTube).

Do not upload shorts that have been edited by YouTube channels to evade copyrights; i.e., by having the image zoomed in and audio edited to avoid detection by YouTube's Content ID system. These tend to be of low quality and terrible sound.

Legal Tagging

The copyright of all images and videos remains with Warner Bros, Time Warner, Turner Entertainment, certain corporations and partnerships (if you are uploading advertisements of a business selling Looney Tunes and related products) and anyone else who legally owns the material. It does not belong to the individuals who provide the images, episodes (TV shows) or shorts (original theatrical shorts) online. Regardless of what any other site or user may say, the copyright on these images or videos always belongs with the owners listed above. No one else can claim that they own the image or can restrict its use. (For material public domain, this usually means no one can restrict the use of it, however, public domain generally falls into the Creative Commons Share-alike license.)

Title cards, despite being in the public domain, are still copyrighted by Warner Bros. Just because the same title card is not copyrighted in one short does not mean it is automatically public domain. All images and videos uploaded onto the wiki are assumed to be marked under the Creative Commons Share-alike license.

Do keep in mind that the wiki uses United States public domain and copyright laws. The cartoons that are in the public domain in the United States may be copyrighted in another country.

Reuploads

Reuploads are allowed for a different version of a title card or cartoon, USA/EU 1995 dubbed version, 1997-98 dubbed version, unrestored VHS/LaserDisc/DVD/Blu-ray transfer, restored DVD/Blu-ray transfer, computer colorized, handrawn, or an a.a.p./Sunset Productions print. Do not upload two of the same photos or videos of the same quality. Duplicates will be removed without tagging and warning.

Deletion

  • Videos will be deleted if they are no longer viewable on YouTube, Vimeo, or DailyMotion or violate any of the Terms listed above. If you upload a video for use on your user page, but choose to no longer use it, tag it for deletion by using the {{delete}} template.
  • Images will be deleted if they violate any of the terms listed above. If you upload an image for use on your user page but choose to no longer use it, tag it for deletion by using the {{delete}} template.

Any user is welcome to add the {{delete}} tag to images to get an administrator's attention on an image that violates the terms outlined above.

Violations

Violations of these Terms are subject to an anvil drop. A first violation will result in a warning, or if you just joined, none, because we assume you are a vandalism-only account. Further violations will result in a anvil drop. If violations persist multiple times after the ban, then you will be banned indefinitely.

Questions about these Terms or about any warnings or anvil drops received as a violation of these Terms should be directed to a Head or Wizard.
