Auron, please don't upload images covered in subtitles or any other kinds of watermarks, that's not allowed. 
Luckily I have a fresh set of images for episode 10 and 11 or Oreimo anyway, so consider yourself lucky! 
Please remove all subtitled/watermarked images from the site, it's a pain for me to track them all down, thanks.

Does that include subs? Because my images usually have subs but no watermark.

@takashichea: Yes, like I said, subtitles or watermarks are not allowed. 
Watermarks pretty much mean anything that's added on top of the image, subtitles, TV channel/network logos, scrolling text, anything that's not part of the anime itself. 
The only time any watermarks are okay, in my opinion, is in fan art. Artists often put a logo or signature on their work and that's acceptable. 
Hope I made that clear enough for you. Please get rid of any subtitled/watermarked images you've added to the site, that would be a big help. Thanks.

@Newten:  well i could try blurring out watermarks and subtitles, like I've been doing with watermarks. But I figured subtitles are pretty much okay because they're pretty much like captions and give some ready-made context to the image, and the image is not "covered" in subtitles. And I also figured some images are better than no-images, given the state of anime vice as it is. So, I'm guessing when capping images I'm expected to either remove the subtitles or just take screens from a raw version instead?
Also you make it sound like it's any easier for me to track down all the images I've attached to the wiki that specifically have subtitles on them. Which is pretty much every image I've attached to wiki in the past month.
If this is all true then I'll just stop attaching my pics to the wiki.

@AURON570: Unfortunately blurring out watermarks in nearly always noticeable, so that's not really a great idea, and although I know what you're saying about the subtitles, we still want clean caps here. It just gives the wiki a more polished feel. 
Well it is a little easier for you, you know better where you've put images than I do, I'd have to track them all down. Plus I have to help maintain the site's wiki as a whole and I have other duties to attend to like the wiki queue, I'm only asking you to take care of your own images. I already removed the oreimo images and filled out the episode pages with clean ones. 
How are you taking screen caps anyway? If you have the episodes downloaded, you should find using the screen capture function in a media player like Media Player Classic doesn't save the subtitles into the images. 
I'm sorry, I know it's a lot of trouble but I'm trying to be as helpful and reasonable as I can be.

@Newten:  Hmm unfortunately I don't save anime to my hard disk it's mostly straight streaming for me. I don't have much experience with video files separated from subtitle files, and I didn't know media players are actually capable of taking screens without subs. I've been just using print screen, copy paste, crop, save. 
Alright I suppose if the wiki wants to be more professional-looking then that's fine (not up to me to decide the direction of the site), I'll get to work on unattaching my image files.

@AURON570: Ahh that's understandable, I'm sure lots of people are in the same boat and just don't know about this stuff. 
I've been saying to people for a while now that I'll post up and image guide of some sort for the site, I really should get on that soon.
