All of the below guidelines are subject to change as the structure of this site is finalized.
  • At minimum, include the wrestler's name (at the time) and the promotion/television show that they appeared in under that name.
  • If you're uploading a higher-quality version of an existing image, report the old image with a link to the new one. The old image will be deleted.
  • You may upload larger versions of GIFs that also have an autoplay version. As a courtesy, you should leave a comment with a link to the other version after uploading.
  • If an image you upload doesn't appear, it's probably a duplicate. Any extra tags you entered will be added to the original image.
  • Show screencaps should be uploaded as JPG files. PNG files are usually much larger than necessary. JPEG quality 80% is sufficient in most cases; 90-100% is also excessive.


Tagging guidelines
  • Tag wrestlers, otherwise significant wrestling personalities, signature moves, promotion, television show/pay-per-view name, and a general mood (to aid MFW searches).
  • Use full names; e.g. randy_orton as opposed to orton; hunter_hearst_helmsley as opposed to hhh; and macho_man_randy_savage as opposed to randy savage. Also be careful not to tag aj; use aj_lee or aj_styles.
  • Use the wrestler's name as depicted in the image. sycho_sid and sid_vicious are not to be used together unless he appears as both personas in the same image. Here's an example of an image of a single person with two gimmicks: 1501
  • For candid photos with a wrestler out of gimmick or costume, tag the wrestler's best known name(s) as well as his/her real name if known.
  • Avoid using epithets that complement a wrestler name. Don't use jerry_the_king_lawler when jerry_lawler will suffice.
  • Original content should be tagged with the user/trip who created it, if known.
  • If the wrestler's name changed slightly, use the most recent form. lord tensai will alias to tensai.
  • When tagging a macro, describe the text as generally as possible in another tag and replace commonly changed words with "x" if they are not at the end of the phrase. For example, my_body_is; arrive_x_leave; you_mad for all variations of "you mad", "he mad", etc.
  • For parodies, tag the name of the original show/game/movie.
  • If you're uploading fanart, please make an effort to find its author and enter their website or the original URL of the image in the Source field.
  • Tag actions with gerunds, as in "smiling", "laughing", "crying", and "burying".
  • If in doubt, leave a comment on the image asking for advice.
