Hello! First, let me say that I appreciate your efforts in adding posters.
However, I'd like to draw your attention to our policies; "Promotional photos come directly from ABC. We currently have an official, sanctioned link to ABC for this purpose, and these images are uploaded by Utter solitude."
The reason behind this is that I have express permission from ABC to use their promotional images: the ones they place on their media site. It does not include every image found on Twitter or Facebook. Please don't upload promo images in the future, as I generally have to delete all of them because they're either a) not permitted for our use or b) there is a higher quality image I have access to from ABC's media site.
tl;dr: Please allow me to upload promo images, do not do it yourself.
I nvever worked it out in detail but have a solid idea of what the group is about. I also came up with it before 4B, so the different villains teaming up then didn't happen in Once yet at that moment.
The members of the Misthaven Five (Mary, Jersey, Sun, Facilier and Arachne) all would have a "tragic" backstory that drove them into doing underground business. In the EF they were the alternate option to Rumple for making deals, but because Rumple always was the first choice they were kinda forgotten by everyone.
They resided both curses because they resided in a pocket dimension of Facilier from the shadows. But they eventually would cross over and start an underground maffia in SB and eventually take over the whole place, mostly duo to Mary's powers.
In the end our heroes would go to their base in SB and defeat each villain (in a different fashion to the QoD. Like they first encounter Sun for example, and some stay behind to fight him while the rest continues to stop Mary, who is the main antagonist of the arc).
Hi! Two of the images you just uploaded, have black edges, which is against our image policies. They will be deleted, unless you can add a better quality version, without the black bars. Also, could you please give me the source of your images? Thank you.
DarkKingdomHearts, I would advise you to read our image policies. This wiki is very strict about the screencaps being taken from licensed sources only. Acceptable internet sources for episodes stills are Netflix, Hulu, ABC.com, iTunes, and Amazon. No other websites are acceptable. Your images will be deleted. Do not let this happen again.
Hey, so since there have been some issues with this, I would like to ask for the source of the latest pic, the one with SquidInk on it. I know we're getting tedious about this, so I hope you can provide a good source and we'll all be happy :)
Sorry it took so long, I tried to get in touch with through Skype (as it is the only way I can talk to him) but he hadn't been online the past week. He said he installed a program called netprivacy.me which makes you able to surf the internet anonymous thus allowing you to watch things from ABC.
If this also isn't allowed you can take down the picture.
It is not against the rules to use a computer program to trick ABC's servers. However, I need proof. Could you take a screenshot of your browser playing an episode, and add it to a free image hosting site, like Photobucket or Imgur?
Hey, sorry that I still don't have the picture up. As of late my internet just Suddenly quits and soms keys don't respond so I am going to have someone fix that. I have the screenshot on my laptop so I'll send a link when my laptop is back.
Seriously, this is the third time you've been stalling for time. I'm sick of it. Also, Lady Junky tells me that that you can't watch the previous episode on ABC.com, until the day after the next one airs (unless you have a subscription). You image was uploaded on March 29, but "Poor Unfortunate Souls" would not have been available to you until March 30. Your image has been deleted.
Hello! It's come to my attention that you have character infoboxes on your user page. You need to remove these, or I will remove them for you, as it adds your user page into the "characters" category and creates redlinks.
These infoboxes are for characters, and do not belong on user pages.
Thank you for uploading images. I hope that you have screencapped all of them yourself and havent stolen them :D. Please remember afterh/when you upload images, to place them in the appropriate galleries.
Glad to do. I have every episode on my laptop, so I all screencap them. Just wanting to have all the character boxes to have pictures. And I'll also upload them in the galleries. Expect some more to come ;)
Sorry for butting in, but if I could just add something else. I, too, am very grateful to you, DarKingdomHearts, for helping with uploading much needed images for the galleries and for infobox nominations. :) Incidentally, if you are uploading multiple photos at once, you can use Special:MultipleUpload to put up more than one photo to the wiki server at the same time. Also, you might notice a dropdown box when you are on the upload screen that says "Licensing". The one we usually use is "This will be used in a way that qualifies as fair use under US Law", so please add that too when uploading photos. Thanks!
Yeah thanks for pointing it out. I'll add the Licensing too. However I probably won't upload most at the same time, because I first have to search for the right moment in an episode to take the screencap of and when another file is still open... then I... just have to upload it xD. And I immediately upload it in the gallery so then I don't have to add it there afterwards.
I wanted to put a link at Marilyn Manson's name, but suddenly the infobox was messed up (seemed like for some reason a slash flew away) so I undid the edit, and did it again. Next time I'll not undo it but just add, in this case, the slash back.

I'm sorry, I thought the link previously existed and you were fluffing. My mistake!
In the future, use the source editor for thinks like that. When you use the visual editor to edit a template parameter containing ref tags, it removes the slash of the closing tag. That's what breaks infoboxes.
I want to thank you for recently commenting on the Once Upon a Time page. After a discussion about the page with the other admins, we're going to completely revamp the page (expand it out, make it look great, etc). It's an important page that's been neglected, and we wouldn't have even started thinking about it without that comment. So thank you!!!
