The MAIN IMAGE of a Anime should be the Poster Art or the DVD Box cover for the anime.   
 
  • It should NOT be just a random picture from the anime.  
  • Ton's of points to be had uploading proper images.   
  • Anyone with over 5000 points can set the default image for you!  
  • If you can't set the image yourself, just comment below, give us the link to the Anime and a link to the right image.
  • We'd want the US release posters by default.  Then if that does not exist, we go to the foreign release posters.   

Check out the Anime Movie and Anime Series to see what needs to be fixed.
 
Can't change the image yourself yet? Leave a request in the new image change request thread!

Cool!  This is the same rule we have on Screened, Comcvine and Giantbomb.  The main image should be an official poster or box art.  We just never enforced it here on AV.  Time for us to get organized!  :)

@Sonata: Usually the correct image will have the title of the show on it.  Like this...

We'd want the US release posters by default.  Then if that does not exist, we go to the foreign release posters if we can find them.

Every time that I add an image for an episode (the one that shows up on the main page for the episode) it changes  the series pic and I have to go back and switch it back to the old one.  That glitch probably leads to a lot of incorrect main images.

Something I've had difficulty with. There was once I accidentally posted one image from one episode onto a different episode. It is stuck as the primary image on both those episodes.
 
My Bride is a Mermaid Episode #2 
I accidentally posted the image for this episode onto Episode #3

My Bride is a Mermaid Episode #3 
I erased it from the Episode 3 folder in the Images, but THIS picture of the character wont come off of that episodes page. It should only be on Episode #2.
 
I've been trying to fix this for a while, but with no luck.

I think we should allow screenshots though. There are cases when they certainly look better than the limited number of DVD covers and alike. 
Anyways, I am over 5k points and still can't change the main wiki images. Can someone explain me how to do it. It may have changed with the new update(s).
 
EDIT: Nevermind, I found it and already doing my little crusade to purify fanarts and similar.:)

Characters should have the most recent version of the character.

This image rule is vague and outdated. What I'm saying to my new wiki editors when I approve and deny their images are not listed in the rules.

  • No watermarks should be allowed
  • All text should be cleaned off manga scans.
  • Anime Screenshots must be attached to the episode galleries as top priority to eliminate dupes.
  • Official Art Work like calendars or magazine scans should be added to the franchise's gallery.

Dumb question, but do cosplay photos belong to the franchise gallery? I was approving some yesterday that went to the character gallery for Chi Chi and Goku. Then, today, I notice some of them went to the franchise page after approving them. I forgot to check. Before I moved them, I had to ask you first.

@takashichea: Cosplay galleries are created automatically for new franchise pages, so yes, cosplay photos can be added there.
