File names

Hey, Thanks for contributing wiki, I just want to inform about the file name guideline in here,

The file name should be File:(agency full name) (bus number) (-a, if a is occupied, -b, -c... co on...).jpg

For example you can see how file is named on file:York Region Transit 1517-a.jpg and file:York Region Transit 1517-b.jpg. Thanks again!--DangSunM (talk) 17:17, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

York Region Transit 301-310

Please don't replace 305 yet, I will get a better shot on Tuesday, if it is not changed by Wednesday you can replace the photo. 51Leslie 12:32, 24 December 2016 (PDT)

Issues with photo uploading

Hello there,

I have noticed you are one of a few members who have recently been involved in uploading substandard photos and getting into edit wars with other users regarding photos, most often in the YRT pages. Let me remind you that the point of having photographs on the Wiki is to show an example of the vehicle, not for members to have their own personal photo gallery. The only time a photo should be uploaded to the Wiki is if the vehicle does not already have one, or replacing an existing photo with a substantially better quality one.

The edit wars were getting to a point that an administrator asked me to step in and provide a high-quality photo of 304 before the page would be locked in order to stop the edit wars. Clearly that 24 hour page protection was not a sufficient warning. I've also been in conversation with other editors who are also fed up with the constant edit wars and poor-quality photos being uploaded in recent days. Consider this another warning from a fellow member before I ask administrators to take action against your account.

Like what is mentioned above, If you replace a thumbnail, it should be the same quality or better that what is already there. If you want to replace a thumbnail it might be a good idea to ask the person that put it there first if it can be replaced; avoiding a potential conflict and edit war. It's fine to upload a couple of images of the same bus as examples, but not 5-10 all at once. --Kevin L (talk) 00:20, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
