Sample Question

How do I upload a screenshot? -- Asgar 12:07, 31 July 2011 (CDT)

Use Special:Upload to upload the file. Please choose a meaningful file name and describe the picture. It'd be nice to know what version of KSP you used. Lastly, add {{Copyright by Squad}} to indicate the rights. --Asgar 12:07, 31 July 2011 (CDT)

What do I do if a thumbnail is not rendering?

I am trying to upload an image to the wiki, but it has failed to create the thumbnail four times, so I cannot make it visible when posting it to an article. This is the image in question: File:KerbinTopographyFull.jpeg

What can I do to get the thumbnail to render? -- MattWBradbury 20:21, 27 June 2013 (PST)

You could try taking your original file (I assume that you exported this from a SVG file or similar) and export it to another format, like PNG. You might also consider either to use a higher resolution or to resize the longitude and latitude markers, as they are currently not readable.
Another thing about the map: first of all, good job, the map is quite awesome. I also noticed a smiley face in the southwest ocean. Considering that it appears on both the Mercator and polar projections, I assume that it is not a joke/easter egg that you inserted. If it is, please remove it, otherwise people might try to search for it... --dgelessus (talk · logs) 09:01, 28 June 2013 (CDT)
I'm wondering why there is no explanation given :(. And if you have the original file: How large (in bytes) is it coded in png? The artifacts around the text are kind of awful. — xZise [talk] 15:34, 28 June 2013 (CDT)
