DELETE "Added by" on images

SiPlus August 25, 2010 User blog:SiPlus

Wikia staff, remove "Added by" thing on images.


Wikis are encyclopedias. Encyclopedias were made for readers. There's no point to see who uploaded image on encyclopedia for typical user.

Images are used to illustrate encyclopedic articles. Wikis are not galleries. Wikimedia Commons is gallery, wikis like Combine OverWiki and Call of Duty Wiki are encyclopedias.

Wikia, you ruin idea of your project and MediaWiki engine itself.
