Missing images for groups

I noticed that a few groups or vehicle were missing the images, i wanted to add those missing as i have the files, but when checking how the templates work, i noticed that the image for other vehicle aren't uploaded at all on the website, is the wiki depending of gzabi's Datamine repository for the images ?

I tried to upload the image for the ostwin 2 but they don't want to "appear" now that they are uploaded.

Am i missing something ? - Oshida_BCF (talk) 11:14, 13 July 2023 (UTC)

Hello, thank you for highlighting this issue. The wiki uses its own database for images, which are automatically inserted onto pages. Thus, they cannot be manually uploaded and replaced. We are looking into the issue, and it will hopefully be resolved soon. - DnaGonite (talk) 12:21, 13 July 2023 (UTC)
I have all of the missing images for the german tech tree and i would love to assist. Groups have the "link" but the image doesn't exist, while some vehicle just doesn't have the link, but even if they did the image doesn't exist either. Also i noticed on some user's "custom tech tree" that the images were on the website, are all images uploaded on the wiki transferred on this website ? Or is it a "privilège" of moderators/high grade member ? - Oshida_BCF (talk) 12:33, 13 July 2023 (UTC)
All images uploaded by users to the wiki are stored on holds images that are uploaded automatically by the wiki backend, such as vehicles' tech tree and statcard images. - DnaGonite (talk) 16:06, 13 July 2023 (UTC)
So is the "database" of the wiki, that is automatically managed, i guess Gaijin provide the images and things ? Or is someone datamining maybe ? i guess that the database didn't received an update since the tech-tree changes. Very interesting. If the database cannot be completed i would be more than happy to provide the missing images. - Oshida_BCF (talk) 17:20, 13 July 2023 (UTC)
