Avoid GIFs for complex images as it has a limited colorspace.

I think that should be changed to:

Avoid GIFs for complex images as they have a limited colorspace.

for agreement. (That's from the upload page) --ルレ 21:00, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Animated images

I fail to see how all these PNG images are supposed to be "animated" Please explain? They dont animate in my browser, but are PNGs supposed to be able to animate? Blake Talk·Edits 22:00, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Spread the word

To avoid something like that happen again, I suggest we either;

  1. Add it to the welcome template for new users


  1. add it on the main page

This way, there's a slight chance it won't happen again.--Force Fire 12:13, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Gen II trainer sprites

First, they should be in png format, no? Second, the format is 56 x 56, no? If so for both, we have gif files and incorrect-sized png files. Suggestions, anyone? ht14 01:57, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

What's the deal with these images?

Just was checking Category:Game maps and found a bunch of REALLY crappy images. No articles link to them, and they basically consist of every imaginable kind of badness game maps can have.

The full list: Eterna_City.jpg Floaroma_Town.jpg Fuego_Ironworks.jpg Hearthome_City.jpg HearthomeCityIngame.jpg Lake Acuity.jpg Lake Valor.jpg Lake Verity.gif Pokemon League.jpg Route 201.jpg Route 204.jpg Route 208.jpg Route 221.jpg Shino Map.jpg

I'm relatively new to the archives, so I'm not sure what to do. Should we scrap them, or is there some hidden purpose to them? Please help! --AndyPKMN 18:33, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

I'll take care of them MaverickNate 18:35, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
