Multiple infoboxes containing non-free imagesEdit

Since one shouldn't use too many non-free images outside the infobox, would it help that if an article has multiple infoboxes images can be put in them? --Kailash29792 (talk) 16:03, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

NFC is about using too many non-free images overall, not just within/outside an infobox. And in cases where there can be reason to multiple infoboxes, such as a soundtrack for a film, there has to be strong reason to include an image in the second infobox. --Masem (t) 16:07, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
Now I'm talking about fictional characters. In Harrison Wells, I want to know if it is fine to include an image for each Wells in their infoboxes. But Robin (character) shows multiple non-free images outside the infobox. --Kailash29792 (talk) 16:56, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
No, you really can't. The Robin article is not appropriate either. While it is reasonable to show multiple non-free art pieces for a fictional character, either you are talking about the evolution of the character Batman, or where each version could be deemed independently notable (each as The Doctor (Doctor Who). In your character, you have about.. 9-12? different alt versions of the same character otherwise played by the same actor, where the different versions are just actors in different makeup or the like. That's not really appropriate to show more than just a couple.
Also be aware, the montages you have are basically user-created (they are not montages made by the CW or DC who have the copyright), and as such, they are considered multiple images - eg you have effective 13 pieces of non-free on that page. Maybe one or two of the alt-versions are notable or have more discussion (do not follow the show to know for sure), but I am pretty confident you cannot illustrate all of those with non-free images. --Masem (t) 18:09, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
Alright, I'll G7 the picture of the other versions of Wells since they are not significant. But is it better to keep separate images of the core versions in their infoboxes? Kailash29792 (talk) 18:28, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
If the characters are truly significant, then you can keep them with/without the infobox. You can either keep the lead montage (which appears to show the four notable versions) or leave the "Prime" version in the infbox and then add the tother three to their sections or to their infobox. The montage is counted as 4 images; the second option is still counted as 4 images, so you are broadly okay either way. --Masem (t) 18:32, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
