Screenshots are a great way to capture iconic moments from the games, whether it’s character moments, stunning scenery or cool references. Take a look below at a typical Screenshot post and we’ll break down each numbered element.
1) Screenshot Image – This is the main featured image, the Screenshot itself. Clicking it will open it up in a modal so you can view it at a larger size (if available). Click the ‘X’ icon or press the ESC key to close it.
2) Screenshot Title – This is the title of the Screenshot.
3) Official Screenshot Badge – This will show if the Screenshot is an official Screenshot – in other words, released by Square Enix as part of press packages for game publications, etc. Screenshots can only be tagged as Official by the Admin.
4) Uploaded By – This shows which user the Screenshot was uploaded by. Click the user’s name or avatar to go to their profile.
5) Featured Characters – This lists any Characters that are featured in this Screenshot. Clicking the Character’s name will take you to a listing which shows all Screenshots tagged with that Character. If there are more than 6 Characters featured in this Screenshot, the extra Characters will be hidden, but you can reveal all the Characters by clicking ‘Show All’.
6) Screenshot Tags – This is the relevant Tags for the Screenshot. It might include the Characters again, items seen in the image, locations, or mood-related words. Clicking the Tag will take you to a listing which shows all Screenshots related to that Tag.
7) Screenshot Locations – This lists any locations featured in the Screenshot. It might show a room (such as the Girl’s Restroom), but also the building the room is in, i.e. Blackwell Academy. Clicking the Location’s name will take you to a listing which shows all Screenshots tagged with that Location.
8) Featured Games – This lists any Games the Screenshot is related to. Unlike other content types, only 1 Game can be selected since a Screenshot can only really come from 1 single Game. If the Screenshot is manipulated to include Characters from other Games, then it should be considered Fan Art and uploaded as such. Clicking the Game’s name will take you to a listing which shows all Screenshots tagged with that Game.
9) Featured Episodes – This shows the Episode the Screenshot is related to – it might depict a pivotal scene from a specific Episode for example. Clicking the Episode’s name will take you to a listing which shows all Screenshots tagged with that Episode.
10) Platform – This shows the Platform the Screenshot was captured from, e.g. PC, Xbox Series X, etc.
11) Favourites Button – Click this button to add the Screenshot to your Favourites. If you’ve already favourited the Screenshot, the word ‘Unfavourite’ will show instead and the heart icon will be filled. Click the button again if you want to Unfavourite it.
12) Favourites Count – This shows how many times the Screenshot has been Favourited. Clicking the number will open a modal which will list the Fans who Favourited it. You can click the name or avatar of the Fan to go to the their profile.

The box on the left lists the Collections you can choose from. Only Collections you created will be shown. Clicking any Collection on the left will add it to the box on the right. Any Collections in the box on the right will now contain the Screenshot once the Add/Update button is pressed. If you want to remove a Collection from the box on the right, hover over it and click the minus icon.
15) Add New Collection Button – Click this button to add a new Collection. A modal will pop up where you can enter the required details. After submitting, the Screenshot page will refresh and that Collection will now be available in the list of Collections in the left box.
16) Edit Button – Click this button to edit the Screenshot. A modal will pop up with a form. This is the same form used for adding new Screenshots, except the fields will already be filled in with the relevant values. Simply add or change what you want and click the Update button to edit the Screenshot. You will only see this button if you’re the author of the Screenshot post.
17) Delete Button – Click this button to delete the Screenshot. A tooltip will appear prompting you to confirm whether you really want to delete it or not.

19) Similar Screenshots – Here you’ll see up to 6 other similar Screenshot posts. The results are randomised each time the page is refreshed, but the logic is based on the Screenshot Tags, so any other Screenshot with one or more of the same Tags as the Screenshot you’re currently viewing could appear in this section. This is why it’s important to enter accurate and useful Tags when adding new Screenshots.
20) Related Characters – This shows the Characters related to this Screenshot.
