Here at the Homestar Runner Wiki, we encourage users to personalize their user pages so that all of us in the community may get to know each other. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, and so users are permitted to upload a prescribed number of images to the server for no use other than to decorate their user pages, subject to the following standards:
+
-
{| align="center" style="width: 80%; background-color: #f1f1de; border: 2px solid #996; padding: 5px;"
+
You are allowed to have two large personal images in your user space, and optionally you may have one small image (not taller than 20 pixels) to use in signatures.
-

-
*'''Each user is allowed two personal images.''' A personal image is defined as one not in specific use by the project. (Generally, this means that the image is only in the User namespace.)
+
-
*'''Additionally, a user may also have one small image to use in signatures.''' The image must not be taller than 20 pixels when scaled to fit the signature, and it should be roughly square. It should not be distracting (e.g., animated).
+
-
*If a user wants to have more than one personal image in a signature, or if he or she wants to give out a custom award, then that's fine, but it counts as one of the large images.

We regret having to be legalistic about this (the wiki is supposed to be lighthearted and fun, after all), but we have grown to the point that having a standard is necessary, and simply giving free rein in this area is counter to the goals of the knowledge base.

==Images in use==
+
-
To help us [[Special:Personalimages|keep track of images]] in use, please use the following two templates:
+
-
 
+
-
'''For large personal images:'''
+
-
<br/><nowiki>{{personal-image|Username}}</nowiki>
+
-
{{personal-image|JoeyDay}}
+
-
 
+
-
'''For images intended for signatures:'''
+
-
<br/><nowiki>{{personal-image-sig|Username}}</nowiki>
+
-
{{personal-image-sig|JoeyDay}}
+
-
 
+
-
==Abandoned images==
+
-
A user may abandon a personal image. Once this happens, the user who uploaded it may mark it for deletion or switch the template to the one below. Anyone else should '''not''' mark the image for deletion but instead use the the following:
+
-
 
+
-
'''For abandoned images:'''
+
-
<br/><nowiki>{{personal-image-abandoned|Username}}</nowiki>
+
-
{{personal-image-abandoned|JoeyDay}}
+
-
 
+
-
'''Before labeling an image as abandoned on behalf of another user, please ensure that he or she does not intend to continue using it in the near future''' (especially if the user is still under the numerical limit). Abandoned images should not be linked to from any page. Currently we are not mass-deleting abandoned images, but please note that they may be deleted at any time, and we will honor requests for deletion by the user who uploaded the file. (Note: We will also delete unused personal images that are the wrong format or that are of a poor quality, the same as any normal image.) Abandoned images may be claimed by another user, at which time the new user takes responsibility for the image.
+
-
 
+
-
==Images in use by more than one person==
+
-
'''If more than one user is using the same image,''' then it should only be attributed to one of them:
+
-
*Attribute it to the person who uploaded it if he or she is using it.
+
-
*Else attribute it to the person who has been using it the longest.
+
-
*For abandoned images, link to the user who used it most recently.
