Do not mind this blog, unless you are part of the Staff team... In that case, do mind. This blogs serves as an explanation to the New Gallery structure I propose.

Main Gallery

This is known as the core gallery, kind of serving the purpose of a map towards other sections.

It is most likely that the Main Gallery will be restricted to only admins/moderators. If an user wishes to make a change, please contact with a staff.

It will be organised into sections:

Character/Gallery

  • Promotional material
    • Descendants
    • Descendants 2
    • Descendants 3
    • Descendants: Wicked World
    • Others
  • Production and Concept
    • Descendants
    • Descendants 2
    • Descendants 3
    • Descendants: Wicked World
    • Others
  • Screenshots
    • Descendants
    • Descendants 2
    • Descendants 3
    • Descendants: Wicked World
      • Season 1
      • Season 2
    • Others
  • Video-games
  • Miscellaneous
    • Printed media
    • Merchandise
    • Others

Each section will contain a "summary" of images, only displaying a maximum of 12 images per section and sub-section. For sections that has an extensive number of images, a separate Gallery page will be created. The following will explain how it works.

Promotional material

It is most likely that for this section, a separate Gallery page will be created. Said page will be named like this: Character/Gallery/Promotional material.

Note: I believe that for this Gallery page, sections should be organised into tabs, similar to the old (current) format.

The page will be organised into these tabs:

Character/Gallery/Promotional material

  • Descendants. This section will contain all promotional material that was released by official sources in order to promote the first Descendants film.
  • Descendants 2. This section will contain all promotional material that was released by official sources in order to promote Descendants 2.
  • Descendants 3. This section will contain all promotional material that was released by official sources in order to promote Descendants 3.
  • Descendants: Wicked World. This section will contain all promotional material that was released by official sources in order to promote both seasons of Descendants: Wicked World. What's more, it may have separated section dedicated to promotional material for Season 1 and for Season 2.
  • Others. This section will contain all promotional material that was released by official sources in order to promote anything Descendants-related, but does not fall into any of the categories above.

In this page, the number of permitted images is not restricted. However, it is advisable to only add images that are truly promotional images and not creative works made by fans.

Production and Concept

This section results to be confusing and hard to tell if certain images truly belong to the character's gallery page or the portrayer's gallery page. To keep it simple, it is most likely that this section will not have its separate page, due to the lack of materials that truly fits this category. Therefore, it remains in the Main gallery and follow the same 12 images restriction per sub-section.

What exactly fits in this category: Early drafts/designs of the character, close up looks at their outfits, make-up, hair, etc. Image of the portrayer is allowed ONLY if the intention of the picture is to show the character's outfit. It must be full body, the portrayer must be alone in the image (that means the portrayer must not be accompanied with any other cast member in the picture).

What does not fit in this category: Behind-the-scenes pictures of the cast members. For that, please go to the Actor's or Actress's Gallery, or the film's Behind-the-scenes section of its Gallery.

Screenshots

This is the most extensive section of the whole Gallery ensemble. Therefore, the creation of a separate Gallery page is a must, and it will be named "Character/Gallery/Screenshots".

Note: I believe that for this Gallery page, sections should be organised into tabs, similar to the old (current) format.

The page will be organised into these tabs:

Character/Gallery/Screenshots

  • Descendants. This section will contain the screenshots taken from first Descendants film.
  • Descendants 2. This section will contain the screenshots taken from Descendants 2.
  • Descendants 3. This section will contain the screenshots taken from Descendants 3.
  • Descendants: Wicked World. This section will contain the screenshots taken from both seasons of Descendants: Wicked World. What's more, it will be divided into multiple sub-sections, all contained within the tab.
    • Season 1
      • Name of Episode. This sub-section will contain the screenshots taken from that episode in which the character had appeared.
    • Season 2
      • Name of Episode. This sub-section will contain the screenshots taken from that episode in which the character had appeared.
  • Others. This section will contain the screenshots taken from anything Descendants-related, but does not fall into any of the categories above.

In this page, the number of permitted images is not restricted. However, it is advisable to only add images truly screenshots and to add them correctly to the section or sub-section that it corresponds.

A really important thing to consider: Try to add image in the correct chronological order. Do not add images of the end of the film/episode to the first rows of the gallery. Keep it as consistent as possible.

The Screenshots gallery is not for users to spam images. Do not upload a series of screenshots that are 2 seconds apart. Make them a minimum of 5 to 10 minutes apart, so that the difference between screenshot 1 and screenshot 2 is not a blink and a change in hand position. Those screenshot will be excluded from the gallery and subsequently deleted permanently.

Video-games

Is is unlikely that this section requires a separate Gallery page. It will be found only in the Main Gallery, and thus, restricted to the 12 images per section/sub-section limit.

This section will contain screenshots or any graphic material related to the video-games of Descendants.

A possible suggestion is that this section will be divided into sub-sections, corresponding to each video-game that there is.

Miscellaneous

Whatever else...?

  • Printed media.Keep in mind that this section is not to post screenshots, scans or photos of certain paragraph or page of the books. Printed media here falls into two categories: Graphic novels and Other comics.
  • Merchandise. Uh...Dolls...? Keep in mind this is not an Amazon page for merchandise spam.
  • Others. Ugh... Just whatever else.
