if i upload a picture, should one see the name of the plant or not? i just wonder because sometimes you can see them on guildwiki (if you click the picture there is also no "hand" with the advice to change the pic), but in most cases not. They look exacty like the other Ibogas, couldn't just the pic of this plant get the same pic of the other iboga? -- [[image:Elixir_Of_Valor.jpg|15x15px]] [[User:Zerpha The Improver|Zerpha The Improver]] 07:57, 27 July 2007 (CDT)

:I'm not sure whether a guideline exists or what the general consensus is, but I think images should not contain names. The whole point of an image is to show how a thing looks like, not what it is called. That's the page title's job. It is ok to re-use existing images for things that share the same graphics (only if the image doesn't show the name, of course) See [[:Image:Falchion.jpg]] for example, which is used for [[Falchion]], [[Scimitar]], [[Tribal Blade]] and [[Istani Scimitar]]. --[[User:Eightyfour-onesevenfive|<font color="midnightblue">'''84-175'''</font>]] <small>([[User talk:Eightyfour-onesevenfive|talk]])</small> 08:26, 27 July 2007 (CDT)
