Calendar covers can be used. For the time being, you can just leave the images be. :)

Again, please stop uploading all these images. This Wiki is meant to be a source of information, not an image gallery. Pages should have enough information to support the images. We also don't need all those magazine photos. Pages like this contain zero information.

Sorry, this is the first I heard about uploading images in general or magazine photos in particular. What kind of information would make these useful, or are images just not wanted?

Images are allowed, but in moderation. The point of this wiki is to provide information. I don't think there is really anything that can be added to pages like this. I think magazines can be a great resource for articles, but they're are not substantial enough for their own pages (a general publication yes: Shojo Beat). I don't see the relevance of listing them on the artist page, there are 52 magazine covers on Mano Erina's page... There is too many images on pages like this; see how information ends, but the page is still stretched because there are too many images.

I have brought this up on the forum and the in the Photobook category, please feel free to weigh in. Still waiting for another moderator to join. For now I would say photo books are allowed; although I personally only feel like ones of some kind of cultural relevance such as Amuro Namie's 19770920 or Kuriyama Chiaki's controversial Shinwa Shoujo should be created, as there is nothing to really be said about a regular idol photo book. As for the calendars, they don't need their own pages, but I think it's fine to leave their covers on the artist page.

That's fine, I understand that. My thinking on the magazines was that might be an indicator of how popular an artist is becoming. I never thought about the affects of creating an individual page for each item. If you like I can undo any of this from both the Hashimoto Kanna page and the Mano Erina page. Let me know what if preferable and I can make the changes or someone else can do it. Thank you for the clarification!

I've removed Mano Erina's individual magazine pages and the calendars. Moving forward continue to use the "Mano Erina Publications" Category, and list the magazines there. If you like the images to be in more order, you could upload them with the date at the start of file name (example "2016.10.02 UTA.jpg")

That would work well for me. That would make the page look better. Thanks!

Is there a reason the link to the publications needs to be in small font? It may be my eyes but it is barely readable...

Now100:20, 12 October 2016

That's the format used for the notes like that. I'll change it back, but might wanna update your prescription 🤓😂
