General Policy

Blocking Policy

Image Policy

The image policy of the A Court of Thorns and Roses Wiki is a set of guidelines explaining the proper uploading, use, and deletion of images.

General[]

  • Inappropriate Images: No pornography, NC-17 images or explicit violent images are allowed on the wiki.
    • Any images that involve kissing, partial lack of clothes, cuddling, etc are allowed on the wiki. However, any images that involve genitalia will be removed and is subject to a block.
    • It should also be remembered that people from the age of 13 can join Wikia (Fandom) and therefore the images should be suitable for this age group.
  • Own Images: If you want to upload a non-ACOTAR related image to your user page, you can. However, these images must not be added to article pages.
    • Remember this is not an image hosting site. Only upload images if they are going to be used on user pages or articles.

Images on Articles[]

The following images can be added to article pages:

  • Official and semi-official images: This includes: book covers, promotional and marketing images, artwork from the A Court of Thorns and Roses Coloring Book and any artwork displayed in special editions of the book.

What is official?[]

  • The official artwork of the ACOTAR series can be found in the A Court of Thorns and Roses Coloring Book.
    • The artwork in the Coloring Book was produced by Charlie Bowater, Yvonne Gilbert, Craig Phillips and John Howe. Artwork from these artists take priority on the site and should be used in pages and infoboxes whenever possible. Sarah J. Maas personally worked with the artists in designing the artwork, and thus the pieces are considered official.
      • However, Charlie Bowater did originally design fanart for the series before working as an official artist for the coloring book. Her fanart, however, does largely resemble her pieces in the coloring book and thus will also take priority within articles.
  • Coralie Jubénot's artwork is considered semi-official. Her artwork is featured in special editions of A Court of Wings and Ruin.
  • Bon Orthwick's artwork is considered semi-official. His artwork is featured in special editions of A Court of Frost and Starlight.

Simply put: Infoboxes on articles should contain artwork from Charlie Bowater, Yvonne Gilbert, Craig Phillips, John Howe, Coralie Jubénot or Bon Orthwick. If no suitable artwork from these artists exist, then and only then should a fanart be used instead. Do not add galleries to pages, rather create a gallery page for the character and link that page in the infobox. Do not add fanart that depicts unconfirmed ships to pages or galleries, you can add them to your userpage, a blog post or on the forum.

Crediting[]

  • Colored images from the coloring book should be credited to the person who colored them.
  • Coralie Jubénot, also known as CJ Merwild, does not allow reposting of her work, refrain from adding it.
  • Please respect artists' wishes if they do not want their artwork reposted, likewise, art should always be credited, uncredited art will be removed. An artist's crediting rules can usually be found on their Instagram or Tumblr pages.

Other rules/notes[]

  • Officially licensed art: Sometimes called "made with permission" is no longer considered official. See this post for details.
  • No user-found images: Please do not add images that you have found on the internet from non-ACOTAR based sources, as you believe that they look like these characters. These images aren't connected with the source/canonical information of the series and are only your interpretation.
  • No Pinterest images: After the release of A Court of Thorns and Roses, this wiki did accept images from Sarah J. Maas' Pinterest. However, this wiki no longer allows Pinterest images to be uploaded to articles. Many of the images from Pinterest belong to different artists and are in no way affiliated with the series.

Naming[]

  • Book covers: The book's initials, the word cover, and an incremental number. Example File:ACOTAR cover 01.jpg
  • Art: List the name of the character/s that appear in alphabetical order separated by commas and using "&", in order to keep file names short just add their name not any last names or other, the word by, followed by the name of the artist. Use an incremental number at the end if necessary. Examples: File:Nesta by Bon Orthwick.jpg and File:Feyre & Rhysand by Bon Orthwick.png
  • Others: For other images that do not fall into any of the mentioned above, try to use a descriptive file name as opposed to random letters and numbers, and use an incremental number if necessary.
