Personal images

You are allowed to upload your personal images on this Wiki.

Image format

The preferred image format is .png, as it has no compression artifacts and supports transparency. Ideally, every image uploaded to the Counter-Strike Online Wiki should use the .png format. However, exceptions are given to .jpg for screenshots and .gif for some images.

Image format specification:

  • Poster: .png
  • Icon: .png
  • Weapon fire and reload animation: .gif
  • Models screenshot: jpg/png (png recommended)
  • Map loading background: .jpg/png (png recommended)
  • Wallpapers: .jpg/png (png highly recommended)

Certain images should be transparent. As images are often used in templates and galleries, transparency adds a much greater level of professionalism. This specifically applies to icons, sprays, and similar images. In-game screenshots should not be made transparent.

If you do not know how to adjust an image's transparency or lack the software to do so, upload the image and another editor can assist by adding transparency and re-uploading it.


With the exception of certain in-game screenshots, every image should be cropped to show only the topic at hand.

Low quality pictures

Low quality pictures are acceptable but they will be replaced with higher quality pictures (if any).

Renaming file name

Picture file must be renamed first before uploading relevantly. Do not upload it with nonsense name or numbers.

In game screenshots


  • Maps: 3 in-game screenshots per map covering specific different parts with specific captioning (ex: easter eggs, or secret area).
  • Weapons: 1 for weapons without secondary form and 2 for weapons with secondary form.
  • Character: 1 and must be shown in third person view.
  • Barrack screenshots are not necessary because it's already shown by the icons.
  • Official in-game screenshots from Korean website can be put without number limitations.
  • Obtaining weapons/characters/items from Code Box in-game screenshot can only be put once per page regardless the regions.

Images not bearing official watermarks are prohibited in this Wikia as advertising is disallowed and credibility is questionable.


You cannot upload videos to Counter-Strike Online Wiki but you can embed it to pages from YouTube. Make sure it relates to the pages and appropriate. Up to 3 videos are allowed to every page and admins will select the best 3. The usual ones are official trailers from the official websites.


Firing sound, reloading sound and background music are legal as long as they are official. Sounds must be converted to ogg format before uploading.
