Alright, so I wanted to ask everyone's opinion about the importance of uploading images solely for user pages. As I have seen most of them are either not about the wiki at all or some just uploaded and immediately abandoned (See Special:UnusedFiles, not including images for wiki use). There are also uploaded images that are similar to the images used in articles but with terrible quality.
I brought this up to include in the Manual of Style regarding the uploading of images. Other than uploading images solely for article use, some of the things I had in mind are:
- a specific size for usual landscape-style images
- image name and format
For the landscape-style images like screenshots, they can either be 444x250px or 333x250px. File format should be .png always since it's the best file format in terms of quality and each image should be properly named.
Rather than for example, AMR 10-21-13 or some other file name that doesn't distinguish one file from the other, I propose that we name the images according to what it is about.
For example, the image is about Mad Hatter's body getting assembled, the file name would literally be Mad Hatter's body getting assembled. It can be a phrase or anything else, as long as it describes the image itself.
That's about it, I suppose. Anyone can bring up another idea. Everyone's reactions, questions, thoughts, and suggestions are welcome.
