"CardName" is the official UDE English name of the card (if it exists in the English TCG) OR, the commonly-accepted English translation of the card's name from Japanese (if it does NOT exist in the English TCG). If you're dealing with Japanese OCG-only cards, a good source of accepted English name translations are the numerous Yu-Gi-Oh! video games. If at all possible, try to get the name from the NEWEST of these (i.e., try WC6 first, then NTR, then WC5, and so on).

In this case, omit the "SET-" from the file name; i.e., "CardNameLN.jpg" or "CardNameLN.png")

'''SET''' is the two- or three-character abbreviation used for the set's name (e.g., MFC for Magician's Force, 301 for "The New Ruler", etc.). Some early cards have no set abbreviation. In this case, certain "in house" abbreviations have been decided upon. These currently include:

If you wish to upload pictures, there are some guidelines you need to follow, to allow this Wikia to expand with the minimum of hassle later on.

File names are to be standardised as follows:

CardNameSET-LN-R.jpg OR

where...

"CardName" is the official UDE English name of the card (if it exists in the English TCG) OR, the commonly-accepted English translation of the card's name from Japanese (if it does NOT exist in the English TCG). If you're dealing with Japanese OCG-only cards, a good source of accepted English name translations are the numerous Yu-Gi-Oh! video games. If at all possible, try to get the name from the NEWEST of these (i.e., try WC6 first, then NTR, then WC5, and so on).

SET is the two- or three-character abbreviation used for the set's name (e.g., MFC for Magician's Force, 301 for "The New Ruler", etc.). Some early cards have no set abbreviation. In this case, certain "in house" abbreviations have been decided upon. These currently include:

  • Booster 1 = 1
  • Booster 2 = 2
  • Booster 3 = 3
  • Booster 4 = 4
  • Booster 5 = 5
  • Booster 6 = 6
  • Booster 7 = 7
  • Volume 1 = V1
  • Volume 2 = V2
  • Volume 3 = V3
  • Volume 4 = V4
  • Volume 5 = V5
  • Volume 6 = V6
  • Volume 7 = V7
  • Starter Box = SB
  • EX Starter Box = E
  • Premium Pack 1 = P1
  • Premium Pack 2 = P2
  • Dark Ceremony = DC
  • Limited Edition 1 = L1
  • Limited Edition 2 = L2WJ (LE2 has printed set abbr. WJ since it was distributed by W-Jump; L2WJ distinguishes them from later W-Jump promos)
  • Valuable Book 1 = VB1
  • Duel Monsters 1 = G1
  • Duel Monsters 2 = G2
  • New Duel Monsters 1 = S1
  • Duel Monsters 1 (Tournament) = DM1
  • Duel Monsters 2 (Tournament) = DM2
  • World Standard Championship 1 = WS1
  • World Standard Championship 2 = WS2
  • Asian Championship 1999 = T1

"LN" is a two-letter abbreviation indicating language.

  • EN = English
  • JP = Japanese
  • FR = French
  • C = French-Canadian (LOB, SDY and SDK only)
  • DE = German
  • IT = Italian
  • KR = Korean
  • PT = Portuguese
  • SP = Spanish

"R" is to indicate card pictire rarity. Since we're trying to list every card image's rarity in every set, multiples from the same set are to have their different rareities appended to the rear as a suffix:

(So, BlueEyesUltimateJMP-EN-ScR.jpg would be for the first Secret Rare Image, while BlueEyesUltimateJMP-EN-UR.jpg would be for the second Ultra Rare Image).


Card Pictures:

THIS IS MAJOR. As you hopefully noticed before starting to edit pages on Yugioh Wikia, ALL submissions must be

a) written by yourself; OR

b) copied from a PUBLIC domain or similar free resource.

THIS INCLUDES PICTURES! Any card images that have site names overprinted on the picture should NOT be uploaded. Most of the pix you've added are ok, but new pix need to be found for "Feather Shot" (has Yugioh-Card.net insignia overprinted near top-left corner of card) and "Sorcerer of Dark Magic" (has www.Yugioh-deck.com insignia watermark over entire card).

A good source of pix is ideal808.com. Even there, though, you need to keep a close eye on the stuff you save off, as although most of their pix are clean, some (although very few) are marked.

Another small point: Although the size limit on pix is a recommendation, not a law (not yet, anyway!), it is a very reasonable one. It may be nice to have a card picture that fills the entire screen, but the larger the picture, the more space it takes up in Wiki's mainframe, and the longer it will take to load for those accessing Yugioh Wikia from older systems.

And, try to keep pictures around 300 × 450 pixels, with no overprinted site advertising, and they should be fine.
