Your fish mask gif[edit source]

Hi, Ansela asked me to leave you a message regarding your fish mask gif, so here goes Wink
Whilst we always appreciate editors who can make gifs (they are few and far between), yours was deleted because it was a duplicate of an already existing gif depicting the same thing. You were also wearing a clothes which we do not allow, as it is similar to watermarking an image (which for complicated legal reasons we can't do). Also, if you do make an gif, or even an image try to do it in a blank-background area like a POH, to avoid distractions in the background.

Thanks, cqm talk 19:24, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

PS. the same goes for why your celebrate emote gif was deleted. Sorry for any confusion. cqm talk 19:25, June 6, 2012 (UTC)


Well, I now understand about clothes and background, which I agree with. In the future I will make sure to follow those guidlines. The one thing that bothers me is that it was not a duplicate. I checked back on the history, and I did indeed post the first gif, so saying it was removed "because it was a duplicate of an already existing gif" is not correct. So, in the future, would you please give people the real reason why their images were deleted.
Thanks, Dracco1993 19:35, June 6, 2012 (UTC)
You can't see it on the history of the fish mask page because the person that uploaded it didn't put it on there. A useful place to look before uploading new files is Special:NewFiles, to see if someone has uploaded it and just not put it onto the relevant page. If yours had been the first uploaded, I may have left it up with just an image maintenance tag (Template:Retake image, probably) instead.

According to your deleted contributions (I'm not sure if you can see them or not) your gif was uploaded at 19:57, June 6, 2012 (UTC). File:Fish mask bubbles.gif was uploaded at 13:35, June 6, 2012 (UTC). I'd normally advise checking the article the image would go on before uploading, but it's easy to forget to check first. cqm talk 19:52, June 6, 2012 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. I did check the actual page, and at that time there was no gif of the animation, that is why I uploaded mine. I have to admit that I did not check the Special:NewFiles section first, which I will make a habit of doing.
