This page is considered an official policy on the Barney Wiki.
It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that everyone should follow.

This page is meant to inform all users and editors of the Barney Wiki's image policies, including the rules on photo spamming and gallery layout.

General rules

Captions

When adding a photo to an article and or creating a photo gallery, it's recommended that a caption is added to better help viewers understand the photo in an article.

Cropping

When adding images, please crop unnecessary content such as black bars. We only want the central focus of what the image is supposed to be.

Images Titles

When uploading an image, use a name that makes sense. Poorly named files can be mistaken as spam, so please make sure pictures are named clearly and relevantly. It is also better for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to make sure that all images have a descriptive name rather than something random. Here are examples of correctly-named ones:

Unacceptable

Fan art

The Barney Wiki Administration asks that you do not add fan art images to article pages. Users can add fan art for their user page only (no exceptions). This includes edited pictures, deviant art pictures and drawings, and unrelated pictures. Also, don't add images with a confidential watermark on them.

Example

Frame-by-frame

Don’t place a frame-by-frame image as the gallery will become cluttered. This will result in a removal of images. Only add images of pivotal moments of an episode/video. When adding scene images, please put a description of what is going on. Failure to do so will result in confusion for viewers who are browsing the site. Photos are meant to speak and represent a thousand words. However, too many photos from one scene can draw away from the importance of the gallery, as it causes the viewer to instead question the gallery itself.

Example

"Are We There Yet?"

Inappropriate

Refrain from adding inappropriate images, which includes but is not limited to images that are sexually explicit, dangerous, and or have nothing to do with this wiki. Doing so will result in a ban.

Representation

Photos are meant to speak and represent a thousand words. However, too many photos from one scene and or random photos cluttered together can draw away from the importance of a gallery, as it causes the viewer to instead question the gallery, itself. Please follow these guidelines and help keep our wiki super-dee-duper and professional. The Barney Wiki thanks you for your cooperation.

Galleries

Galleries are meant to provide a consistent narrative that displays what the article is about through various types of images. If a page has multiple photos, then it would be wise to create a gallery in the page. When creating a gallery, the first sub heading in editing should be used to indicate the type of gallery that viewers are looking at. The following is the layout for photo galleries. Types of galleries (in this order) -

Releases

(also known as home video covers) - Do not add images of screeners as they don’t have cover art. Screeners are an advance copy of videos that aren’t released to the public as well.

Example

Imagination Island

Behind the scenes

These galleries display images during productions that were conducted out of view of the general public.

Example

Barney Live! In New York City

Promotional

Promotional images are images released to the press to promote an upcoming project. You'll notice that characters might be on a specific set directly smiling and posing for the camera.

Example

Imagination Island

Scenes

These are generally screenshots of videos taken by editors on this site.

Example

Barney's Musical Scrapbook

Sets

These photos are the scenery and props arranged for a production to be filmed on.

Example

Stills

These images are on set photos taken during filming of a production.
