Before you can start taking and uploading files of animations you will need to make a wiki account: logged out users cannot upload files to the wiki.

You will also need a tool to record .gif files. GifCam is free and can be used to record decent quality .gifs easily.

Using GifCam[edit source]

More in-depth instructions can be found on the download page.

  • Drag and resize the GifCam window so that it covers the area used by the animation you wish to record.
  • Adjust your FPS to 33 using the right-click drop down next to Rec. In the drop down next to Save button select the option for Quantize/Nearest depending in which form the .gif works best.
  • Press record and play the animation you want to capture.
  • If necessary use the Edit button to delete, crop or resize frames from the .gif by clicking on them.
  • When you are happy Save the .gif.

Upload[edit source]

Uploading a .gif is done in the same way as uploading a regular file.

A file already exists[edit source]

Replace the file with a new version

If there is an existing file you should a upload a new version of this rather than creating a new file.

  • Find a page which uses the image that you want to replace. Click on the image.
  • Scroll down to the "Upload a new version of this file" option (under File History).
  • If you did not already add transparency to the image, add {{trans}} in the edit summary to add the image to Category:Images needing transparency or {{transl}} if the the image needs translucency - see the transparency guide for examples of the types images which need transparency/translucency applied.

A new file[edit source]

If there is no previous file to upload over you should create a new file.

  • Select "Upload file" from the sidebar.
  • Choose the file you want to upload.
  • Ensure an appropriate file name is entered into the "Filename" field .
    • Our Image policy contains standards for how to name different kinds of file here.
    • File extensions should be lower case, e.g. .png rather than .PNG.
  • The summary box can use used to:
    • Add {{trans}} in the edit summary to add the image to Category:Images needing transparency or {{transl}} if the the image needs translucency - see the transparency guide for examples of the types images which need transparency/translucency applied.
    • Add a license, use the table below to find the correct one for the image you are uploading.
