Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Carmenstar97!
Bulbagarden Archives bulb.png

By creating your account you are now able to upload images to help Bulbapedia and Bulbanews. Before you jump in, take a look at these helpful tips:

  • Uploaded images must meet several requirements. Please see the upload form and/or manual of style before you upload a new image.
  • All images need categories and license tags. Save time and fill them out as you upload. There are many different licenses - be sure to pick the best fit.
  • Use meaningful filenames. Make them descriptive so that searchers can find your images easily.
  • You may have up to two personal images. All other images are expected to be for encyclopedic/news value.
  • If you don't have any images to submit, you can still help out.
  • If you have any more questions, see the FAQ or ask a staff member.
Thank you, and have a good time uploading here!

I know you'll make us proud on here like you do on Bulbapedia. I have faith in you. Welcome to the team. :D --P S Yライダー 02:51, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, Psy. I'll try my best. :D --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 02:53, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Can you check in on this?

I was browsing around and found this. Being new on the archives I was hoping you would know what to do. Truthseeker4449 00:40, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

It is fanfiction, which is no longer alowed. It appears to be from a Bulbagarden contest in 2008. Vuvuzela2010 01:03, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
There are still 38 fanfiction entries on the archives. Should they be deleted? Vuvuzela2010 01:07, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Those guys

Can you check the IP address of the guy who got recently blocked and the other ones who were making fake pages? Pattyman 03:49, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Deleted Redirects

Those redirects you deleted last night, did you check for occurrences on the pedia that used the redirects? Because I've come across a few broken links from the batch you deleted last night. --Spriteit (talk) 08:05, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Well, I had assumed that whoever moved the files changed the filenames on BP since having the ability to move files comes with some responsibility...I guess I won't be able to do that in the future. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 21:15, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Reverted picture update

Why did you revert the new image of Pikachu I uploaded? Wouldn't it make sense to use an image from Unova? The one that he has now is from Sinnoh. MIKORO (talk to me) 04:21, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

The current one is from Unova, not Sinnoh. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 04:22, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
No it isn't. The current one is a screenshot of Pikachu getting ready to battle Tobias's Latios, which was in the Lily of the Valley Conference in Sinnoh. MIKORO (talk to me) 04:37, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
Even if that's the case, the image you uploaded does not meet the 4:3 ratio requirements, is of slightly blurry quality, and is a bit "awkward." If you can find a better image that has dimensions 1,280 × 720, is in HD, and is not so "awkward," feel free to upload it. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 04:46, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
You need to be more specific. What do you mean by "awkward"? MIKORO (talk to me) 17:48, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps "awkward" might not be the word to describe it, but it was the best that I could think of to describe the image in simplest terms. Compare the current image to the one you uploaded. The one you uploaded shows Pikachu in a battling position, with his mouth open and all four legs planted on the ground. The image expresses a sense of anticipation and expectation that leads to nowhere because the image does not show any climax, causing the image to be anticlimactic. On the other hand, the current image has a sense of finality and certainty to it. For an image of such an important character as Ash's Pikachu, I'd say that the current one is more appropriate. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 20:08, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
So what you're saying is if I want to use a picture from Unova, I will have to find one in which Pikachu is not on all fours and has his mouth closed? MIKORO (talk to me) 02:10, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
Use your best judgment. If you're uncertain about a certain image, you probably should not upload it. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 03:55, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
Gotcha. the great MIKORO (talk to me) 15:45, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Tonny

There are two users named Tonny30 and Tonny45 who have identical accounts of a spambot named Tonny89. Good job on deleting those redirects by the way. Pattyman (talk) 12:41, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
