What to uploadEdit
You are allowed to upload images released for "fair use":
- Software boxart - as this is released to advertise.
- Promotional artwork - Concept art and full body art or otherwise.
- Demonstration songs - Classified as "Promotional" also.
- Merchandise - requires only one to two images.
- For manga related pages, only upload volume covers and never whole pages. If any artwork directly from a manga is used, only 1 frame is allowed per page and no more.
- Screenshots of gameplay released by official sources are fine. Otherwise do not upload.
- We also make exception for modules like in the Project Diva games, but we do not excessively upload images of the game itself.
- Non-promotional artwork by illustrators are acceptable, however, we must draw the line due to copyright and if the image is useful to the wiki or not.
What not to uploadEdit
- Music videos - As stated in the image guidelines; this wiki is not a image or video hosting service.
- See Derivative to link videos on personal spaces.
- The only acceptable embeds are official promotional videos and tutorials via YAMAHA or related companies.
- If a studio objects to an image being on the wiki, the wiki will remove it and cannot add it back.
- Grounds for "Fair Use" does not give us the right to upload every image without consequence and this should never be used as an excuse for a particular image to exist on the wiki for the sake of it existing here.
- Barred images include the following:
