This JPEG/JPG file problem is getting out of hand. I suggest that we should put a large warning message on Special:Upload clearly stating no personal images (this is a problem, and I don't want to make another thread) and no .jpg/jpeg files. Plus, multiple users have violated Project:Images and media policy. In my opinion, we need to be more tough over this, as it has been abused multiple times, with users being completely oblivious to it, even after being warned. — Neitiznot (talk) • (editor contributions) 14:23, June 10, 2013 (UTC)

Discussion

Support - I think it would be good to get people to upload PNG instead of JPG more. JPG is terrible. Could you give an example of what message would be on the file upload page though?Joeytje50 talk 14:46, June 10, 2013 (UTC)

It would have to be strongly worded. I'm not saying that it should be all-caps or anything, but something like
<big><big>Do '''not''' upload files in the JPG format apart from official Jagex images, or upload '''any''' personal images.</big></big>
It might need to be elaborated. — Neitiznot (talk) • (editor contributions) 14:50, June 10, 2013 (UTC)

Strong support - I think the current message (which I helped put there :P) isn't getting through. This is an excellent proposal. Temujin 07:44, June 14, 2013 (UTC)
