Hello everyone, I'm back again so soon, but this time with good reason.
I've been talking to some users about the state of the actor galleries on the wiki. We came to the conclusion that there are far too many amateur photos in the actor galleries. We thought that it would be about time to start regulating these galleries in order to make them accessible.
In short, we are suggesting that the actor galleries be limited to pictures that have been taken in a professional capacity, such as:
- Pictures from a photoshoot (e.g. Lauren Cohan's Maxim shoot).
- Cast photos (e.g. the cast posing at the end of filming for Season 3).
- Set photos (e.g. Michael Rooker getting his zombie makeup ).
- pictures taken as promotional material (e.g. the professional pics taken at SDCC).
Facebook and Twitter selfies and amateur photos would be deemed not fitting to the galleries unless they are related to TWD (e.g. the selfies taken by Laurie Holden, Lauren Cohan and Danai Gurira on set for Season 3). Basically, selfies should only be allowed if two or more TWD actors or staff appear in them.

As you all can probably tell, I like the Cohan gallery ;)
