How to Contribute Media

  • We have officially opened today, 02Jan2021. Welcome to the forum. Please have fun!
These instructions are intended to describe how to manage, organize, and upload new media content to the Xenforo 2 Media Gallery module.

Prerequisites:​

In order to contribute to most of Godsibb.net’s media libraries, the user must be granted the UMN Curator role or above. To request this role, please PM an administrator. The Xeno Art Gallery, Misc. Art Gallery, and Meme Gallery are exempt from this role requirement.

Xenforo 2.0 only accepts the below file formats by default.
Image Extensions: .png, .jpg, .jpeg, .jpe, .gif
Video Extensions: .avi, .m4v, .mov, .mp4, .ogg, .webm, .wmv
Audio Extensions: .wav, .mp3, .flac

Each piece of media must belong to a Category. Categories are typically organized into two levels. Top level Categories typically represent the game series of the upload (‘Xenosaga,’ ‘Xenogears,’ and ‘Xenoblade’) and second level Categories represent the media type (‘Images,’ ‘Audio,’ and ‘Videos’). Categories may be further divided into Albums which represent pieces of media which belong in the same group (E.g.: ‘Xenogears Perfect Works,’ ‘Xenosaga III Face Graphics’). The Xeno Art Gallery, Misc. Art Gallery, and Meme Gallery do not have second level Categories or individualized Albums.

To begin managing media in Xenforo 2.0, click on the MEDIA tab at the top of the homepage.
