- If you wish to upload fanart and pictures made by someone other than yourself, you must first obtain permission from them before uploading. They own the copyright, and using their fanart does not qualify as fair use because it is not canon, and also disrespectful to the artist.
- If it is uploaded without permission, or without including the appropriate copyright templates a "Deletion Template" will be added to the image and you'll have a week or so to get permission to use the image. If you fail to do so, the image will be deleted.
