When uploading, a licensing tag that best-matches where you sourced your image from is needed. Nearly all screenshots from WoW have a specific option (like NPC, zone, mount, etc...). Unlicensed images are subject to speedy deletion. If you see an image without a proper license, you can add it later.

When uploading an image Edit

Selecting a licensing tag is easily done when first uploading your image, however, unless you know the actual name of the tag it can be hard to add one later on. The following is a list of the available licensing options:

Adding a license later Edit

To add a license tag (template) after an image is uploaded, you need to go to the image description page File:filename.ext and add the license tag in "Source" mode with the editor.

If the "Licensing" or "Licensing:" section already exists, just replace the existing tag (usually {{No license}} or {{None selected}}) with the correct tag above.

If there is no licensing section, add the section with the license tag below:

== Licensing ==
{{LICENSE}}
