With a show this good, people naturally want to add to it, and many come up with their own episodes, songs, people, places and inventions. When they do this, it's called "fan fiction". If they draw a picture that's inspired by the show, it's called "fan art".
This page will guide you working with your fan art. Fan fiction is discussed further on the fan fiction page.
Where to use your fan art
Fan art should only be placed on your own User page. Even if the picture depicts an exact event that happened in an episode, it should not be added to the episode or character pages. Only screen captures or promotional artwork for the series can be used on those pages.
Add your fan art picture
If you want to add a new fan art picture to the wiki that you want to use on your page, click on "Add image" in the menu on the left side of the screen. It is located right below "Recent blog posts". This will take you to the page where you can upload the picture.
After you Choose the file from your computer, it will begin uploading in the background. While it is doing this, you can type a description in the "Summary" as to what the picture is for. If it's a screen capture from an episode, be sure to include the name of that episode. Also, type the following at the end of the description:
- [[Category:Images]] [[Category:Drawn art]]
This will help organize the file and add it to the Images category and mark it as a "Drawn art" picture. You may also want to add [[Category:Fan art]] to specifically mark the image as Fan art.
Showing the picture
- [[File:PictureName.EXT|SIZEpx|POSITION|ALT TEXT]]
- PictureName.EXT is the name of the picture with the extension. In this case, it is FerbFletcher.jpg.
- SIZEpx is the size that you want the picture to be displayed as, with "px" at the end. 80px for this example.
- POSITION is where on the page you want the picture to show up: right, left or center.
- ALT TEXT is optional, but helps provide a description of the picture if you move your mouse over it.
The picture of Ferb was added to this page with this command:
Sentences and paragraphs will wrap around the picture as needed. To see the pictures that have already been uploaded, refer to the Images category page.
If you have created a lot of Fan art, you may want to use a gallery to display your pictures. Galleries show smaller "thumbnails" of your pictures. You can include captions for each picture if you wish.
Galleries are created by surrounding the list with <gallery> and </gallery>. In between them will be the list of pictures you want to show and any captions you want.
Example, using pictures of Agent P:
This gallery was created with the following commands:
<gallery> File:Perry trapped - SD.jpg File:Agent E salutes Perry.jpg|[[Perry]] meets [[Agent E]] File:Battle over Danville.jpg|Agent P and Dr. Doofenshmirtz battle in the skies above Danville </gallery>
