Is it ok to use pictures from other places to describe locations and scenery? lets say something like this and if so should i upload them to the wiki or make a link to them--Hananack 10:56, January 27, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, but you must provide a link back to the original picture when you upload it, and you must give it a license that properly describes it (in this case, fair use). Surgo 13:40, January 27, 2010 (UTC)
Are there any special cases? Times when you can't use a image? Also, could i get a link to the fair use terms?--ThirdEmperor 09:22, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
No, no special cases.--Hananack 09:50, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
So I can grab any picture as long as I leave a link? Sweet.--ThirdEmperor 02:55, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
Not quite. If the website says you can't use it, you...can't use it. Period. Surgo 20:20, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
