Proposed Image Naming Policy

I think it's High Time (pun!) that we finalized a system for naming images. I propose that images be named "Subject description game", such that "Dante eating a strawberry sundae DMC:TAS" would be an acceptable image name, or even "Dante strawberry sundae DMC:TAS". Naming things after episodes or cutscenes, e.g. "DMC:TAS ep # screenshot #", in my opinion, is not conducive to searching for images of a specific character. However, this system is popular on other wikis, and may provide us with some semblence of cross-wiki convention. What do you guys think? -- Anobi (talk) 05:28, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

whichever way its done, the image needs to be searchable by location AND content. If you use description in the title, location must be in the image descripton, and vice versa. Either location will keep it searchable, although the location-tile will also make it easy to find in image categories.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 17:12, January 30, 2013 (UTC)
While I may be just a roll-backer personally if this is going to take place I recommend starting with the Source then the image content. I.E. DMC Dante, DMC2 Dante, DMC3 Dante. this is the most comment and easiest one I have seen used on many wikis. -=X Zero X=- 03:03, January 31, 2013 (UTC)
Eh, we already have most of our images with the ID at the end, and it's more in the style of a parser that way. For example, naming Rebellion DMC2, Rebellion DMC3, Rebellion DMC4, Rebellion DmC causes the images to be alphabetized within the image category so that all the Rebellion images are next to each other. If you put the ID first, then it's going to be alphabetized by game.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 06:16, January 31, 2013 (UTC)
