It is the desire of the American Dad! wiki that every subject page eventually have a picture related to American Dad!, preferably a screen shot from an episode. Due to formatting issues, it is recognized that pictures will not fit on every page until sufficient text exists. This is particularly true for Reference, Notes, Quotes or Goof pages in episodes.
Due to a tightening of copyrights, video clips from may only be submitted from approved sources. Video shot at television screens to get around Youtube copyright blocks will still be deleted here and treated as a violation.
Pages honoring celebrities, either in caricature or celebrity voice actors should have a screen shot of the character voiced or the celebrity themselves. An additional "real" image of the celebrity will be permitted.
Attempts to load a page with multiple images to create a gallery or fan site are not permitted and will be removed. Fair use limits images to just enough to illustrate the subject in question. Multiple images will result a violation of copyright.
Images, including screenshots, judged to be uploaded for titillation purposes will be deleted.
Minor characters should be limited to a single profile screenshot unless circumstances warrant a second screenshot to illustrate their action in an episode.
Long pages dedicated to the main characters and staff are permitted to have multiple images. Multiple character images must pertain to a subject discussed in detail related to that character. Pictures submitted must be able to fit without interfering with page formatting.
Images submitted must either be unique to the subject, or be of significantly better quality to justify replacing a previous image. Simply enlarging an image or changing the format/extension isn't grounds to replace a picture. Also, be careful when naming your image. Images containing the same name will trigger a warning that a name match exists. Overriding an image name warning may interfere with a picture dedicated to a particular subject. Images should also preferably be named to associate it with the subject, rather than a random number or generic name such as "Klaus".
Fan drawn art is not permitted anywhere but in a user's own user page.
Images for American Dad! main characters are provided by TBS. These can only be superseded by updated images also provided by TBS. Main characters from another show should use a screen shot of their actions in American Dad!, rather than their own promotional image.
Images used as the main image for an episode are usually provided by TBS, as well as possibly several backup images. In the event that TBS fails to provide images prior to an episode broadcast, a user provided image may be used. It is preferential that the main image tie strongly to the title or main plot and secondary image(s) to any subplots. Again, without interfering with page formatting.
Images uploaded but not properly used in a page are automatically tagged for deletion. The wiki is not to be used as a personal server.
This page is a work in progress. Suggestions or comments for additions or improvements should be submitted to my talk page. --Buckimion 10:14, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
