I just tried uploading in image to Overdrive (Transformers) and it worked. Before I do any more, what sort of licensing is required? Same As Wikipedia? I know you guy don't have the same notability standards, what about non-free image licensing? Same? Stronger or looser requirements? Mathewignash 17:38, 9 July 2011 (MSD)

The site is under public domain licensing (which means stuff posted has no copyright.) However, if you want to publish images from Wikipedia (i.e. under the CCA Share-alike license) that's fine too, as long as you cite the original source of the image and mention that it's under CCA licensing. Govind is adding a new template to help with this. {{image-cca|http://originalsource}} Richard 18:03, 9 July 2011 (MSD)
They are images I uploaded to Wikipedia, but when the articles got deleted, so did the images. If they are no longer on Wikipedia, can they still be shared? I'm not sure how to procede. It might be that the images don't belong on Wikialpha unless they are free.Is licensing like Wikipedia, where they consider all toy images non-free because they are considered "art"? How about a TV series screen capture? Mathewignash 18:06, 9 July 2011 (MSD)
If it's license-free then you can publish it. If it's public domain then you can publish it. If Wikipedia deleted it, then you can publish it. If it's still on Wikipedia then you need to use {{image-cca|http://originalsource}} . If you're not sure where it's from then you can put it up anyway as long as you're reasonably sure it won't cause a copyright issue. TV and movie screenshots are fair-use, since we are a news and encyclopedic publication, and they are being published for educational and/or parody purposes. Any other questions, feel free to ask.

Do deleted pages imported from Wikipedia have to keep the word "deleted" in their name? Mathewignash 17:53, 9 July 2011 (MSD)

No, please feel free to move them into article space, if you can bring them up to WikiAlpha standards. Richard 18:03, 9 July 2011 (MSD)
