  • Can you please tell me how you go about uploading images? I notice that every time you upload an image, there is an empty field under the "summary" headline on the page for the picture. The licensing field is filled out, but there is nothing listed under summary. Summaries are not required in any way (people use them to provide information about their image source, but this is not mandatory), but if you are not going to leave a summary, you should leave out that field instead of adding an empty one.

    • Sorry about that. When I Upload multiple images, in the summary box, i type in the categories the image belongs to. I didn't realise it left an empty summary heading. Next time I upload, I'll either add my source, or categorise the images one by one, so it doesn't happen again. (btw, when you add images to galleries, do certain parts of the gallery disappear, when you publish?, It happens to me, automatically, alot)

    • I see. What you can do to avoid this is to skip the licensing field and instead paste everything into the summary field. For example:

      ==Licensing==
      {{Episodestill}}

      [[Category:Pilot Images]]

      That takes care of the problem and will also categorize the images so you don't have to do it one by one. Or you can simply add your source; it's your call :-)

      As for the problem you describe: No, that has not happened to me. It is a mystery to me why this glitch keeps hitting you and not the others. It must be a real pain for you... Have you tried using different browsers? A different computer?

    • Thanks. I'll try a different browser to see if it stops.

    • I may be wrong about this, but I believe the reason the issue happens is because when you put in [[Category:Pilot Images]], Wikia thinks that is the summary. I uploaded an image before and it did the exact same thing. It is more of a glitch on Wikia's part than anything.

      Also, certain parts of the gallery do not disappear for me. But I do have the issue where the "----" moves itself right after the end of a template, instead of leaving it directly under it. It happens a lot on gallery pages and the cast pages.

    • Thanks. I wasn't sure if it was just my computer. I use chrome, but I don't have the same issue on other browsers (but I still use chrome because its faster). If your ok with using another browser, the issue shouldn't appear.

    • I see that the problem is still occurring. Are you still using Chrome? If so, you should switch to a different browser permanently; the way you keep reverting your edits to fix the damage causes a long list of images to appear in Recent Wiki Activity at once and it kind of clogs up the page.

    • Besides chrome, I only have one other browser, but my main problem is that its too slow. Whenever I edit large galleries, I try to use the other one though

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I see. Could you install at least one or two more browsers and try with them? Personally, I have five different browsers on my computer; I even used to have six, before I had to reboot the system; my computer is on its last legs... (Hey, before you judge me; two came with the computer, one came with some software and I downloaded the remaining two ;-) )

    • My main laptop doesn't have enough storage, but I can try different bowsers on other computers

    • Great! You do that :-D

    • Hi. My other compter, which was used to sort galleries, is being used by someone else, so I only have access to my main laptop for now. I don't know how long this will be, so apologies if there are problems when I edit galleries in the future. I have made an enquiry to the community wikia, about this issue.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Okay. Let's hope for the best then :-)

    • Hi. Iv'e been usiong another browser, and I thought the problem was dealt with, but it happened again (I assumed it was a problem just on Google Chrome). I've sent a bug report, and I messaged on the community wikia for help, but I haven;t got any response back. Do you have any suggestions?

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • All I can think of is that you contact Wikia, which I guess you've already done? If you have the same problem with a different browser, then I have no idea what's causing this.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I'll try another browser, and get back to you.
