Attention:

This notice has been placed on your talk page because you have recently uploaded one or more pictures that violate our Image Policy. You may either be new to the site and/or unfamiliar with our policy, so to facilitate your editing; here is an annotated version of FFXIclopedia's policy regarding images:

1) Images should be named exactly after the subject or item portrayed, without abbreviation. Images should not start with Image, Img, PlayOnline timestamp prefixes, or otherwise.
For example if you are uploading an image of a Robber Crab, the filename should be named something like RobberCrab.png. Filenames like Crab.png, Del080413193409a.png, Img-Robber Crab.png, or Crab-Image.png are not acceptable.
2) Images should not contain any type of branding, such as a website name or the name of the uploader. Item images should not be signed or altered (i.e. via photoshop, DAT swaps, or any other 3rd party modifications) in any fashion. This includes signing your uploads with ~~~~, as the software automatically does that on the image page itself.
3) Images of items should not be blown up or shrunk down to accomodate for size or lack thereof. Image editors are for cropping around the border of the item and saving only. Please upload only the appropriately sized image.
4) Avoid saving images as JPG files in Microsoft Paint when the image started out as a PNG or BMP. This causes an undesired image grain.
5) Images of items should not have transparent backgrounds showing other players, zones, or any other obstructions. Preferred in-game backgrounds are #2 and #4 under Config > Windows
6) NPC or Mob images should be taken to the best of your ability with no other obstructions in the image besides the NPC or Monster.

Any image uploaded that does not follow this format, will either be flagged with a {{Picture Replace}} tag or subject to deletion, depending on the severity of the violation. For more detailed information, please see the image policy.


Once you have read and understood the policy, feel free to delete this notice from your talk page, or keep it if you wish to reference the policy. Thank you for understanding - FFXIclopedia Administrators

The founders and administrators of FFXIclopedia and Eorzeapedia, together with the podcast gurus over at Pet Food Alpha, Limit Break Radio and the Aetheryte Radio Network - are excited to announce their newest project - Gamerescape.com. Gamer Escape draws upon, and expands on, our collective experiences. We're combining the wiki platforms where you can get your information, podcasting platforms where you can listen to your favorite podcasting personalities, wordpress/news platform so you can quickly see what is going on with your favorite game, and of course, forums to allow you to discuss everything game related with the community.

What does that mean for FFXIclopedia?

We've copied the FFXIclopedia wiki content over to Gamerescape in order to seed and expand upon the wiki over there. FFXIclopedia will, of course, remain at Wikia and remain open and available for editing. To be clear, while there have been a few rather public departures from Wikia in the past few months, they are not a factor in our decision. The reality is that Wikia provides a great service for wikis and was a fine home for the past few years. They allow anyone with one click to try their hand at starting a wiki and a community. That is invaluable and, looking at Wikia's growth, has served them well. In light of some the recent public departures, we feel it was important to make this clear.

We are making this announcement because (i) we are truly excited about what we're launching; and (ii) you, the community, should know that the founders and some of the current admins and moderators will not be here, but will be developing the FFXI wiki/forums over at gamerescape.

What else is over at Gamerescape?

In addition to the content from the FFXIclopedia wiki, we have integrated Eorzeapedia - so all of your FFXI and FFXIV information is on the same site, just a click or two away. Also, in addition to FFXI and FFXIV, we've launched WakfuEscape, a platform dedicated to the upcoming Wakfu MMO (distributed by Square Enix). Complete with news platforms, forums and podcasts - we're continuing in our efforts to provide a site where you can get all of your gaming information without having to jump from site to site.

We've learned a lot since 2004 when we started FFXIclopedia, a lot of which is reflected in our new FFXIV and Wakfu wikis. We remain nothing more than a group of gamers at heart who enjoy playing games and helping the community develop a resource for those games. We're looking forward to continuing that effort over at GamerEscape.com. We hope to see all of you there.

PS. For those that have an Eorzeapedia.com account - your log-in credentials should work at any GamerEscape.com site.
