Fan art?

I brought this up on my user talk page here. I've been noticing that images such as self photos like this one, userpage images, and website signature boxes have been added to this category. I'm not complaining, because I mostly am the one categorizing them as such, but the name "fan art" no longer applies to this category. All files in this category should be either:

Those files would be all "fan works", however, some wouldn't be Zelda related so they'd all be "works"; something that the creator claims as theirs but isn't copyrighted. —Darkness(Talk) 18:41, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

That "something" would fall under the GFDL copyleft licence. We should probably mention something about that somewhere.
And you're right, "Fan Art" might not be the best name for what this category encompasses (i.e. a big mix of copyright, copyleft, and public domain that we don't bother sorting out). Maybe "Personal Works" would be a better name? Or something like that.... — Hylian King [*] 18:42, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
Actually, scratch that. We should keep this category only for fan art, screenshots of fan games, and heavily edited official art. All the rest can go under our GFDL copyleft license. We can make a template for it, like this one. — Hylian King [*] 19:43, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
