Welcome

Bulbagarden Archives logo.png
Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Marked +-+-+!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your uploading:

The Manual of Style, or MoS, outlines the format and guidelines of all images on Bulbagarden Archives.

All of our administrators are here to help! Talk to them if you have any questions or problems with the Archives.

Tagging images with correct licenses and categories is a must. These guidelines will help you learn more about tagging images.

Miscellaneous
  • Please read the checklist when you upload media files. The checklist is there to make sure you are doing everything necessary when uploading said media files.
  • Be sure to tag and categorize all images. This helps organize the vast amount of images we have here.
  • Check if your image already exists by searching through categories, and Bulbapedia pages. This action will help prevent unnecessary duplicates from appearing.
  • When adding a licensing tag to anime or game screenshots, please avoid just choosing "Screenshot". This is not descriptive and places the images in the wrong category. Make sure to choose "Screenshot from a Pokémon game," or "Screenshot from the Pokémon anime." This will put them in the right categories, and help keep the Archives clean.
  • Does your image have a purpose? Will you be using it on a Bulbagarden Project? Avoid uploading images because you think they are "Cute" or "Awesome". That clutters the Archives.
  • Personal images are limited to two for each User. Personal images include personal logos, personal trainer sprites, drawings, trainer cards and mostly any image that would only be used in the User: namespace and have no encyclopedic value to Bulbagarden and its affiliates. Please tag these with the {{i-Personal}} template for easier organization. Under no circumstance should a photograph of one's self ever be uploaded onto Bulbagarden Archives.
  • In addition, please upload images with meaningful names. Names that are just numbers, for example, do not describe anything about the image, and can make it difficult for searchers. Names are just as important as licenses and categories, so make them descriptive. Please be sure that the filenames contain alphanumeric characters only.
  • Due to the many automated templates used on the wiki, lowercase extensions are imperative. That means jpg and png instead of JPG and PNG. It looks cleaner, it works better, and it does not cause any problems. Make sure to always use lowercase extensions.
  • If you're confused about the requirements for uploading files, have a look at this guide.
 Thank you, and have a good time uploading here!

Just so you know

If you upload an image at the wrong name, instead of uploading it again, add the {{move}} template. --SnorlaxMonster 11:45, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Image Size

Why are some of your images... not standard gba or ds size? Your oversized images are a tad blurry. --+ Joeshie + (is Me!) 08:15, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Well, I get my images from the computer too. How do you get your screenshots? from your program on the comp? Also, reply here on your talk page. it's much easier :D --+ Joeshie + (is Me!) 22:23, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Alphanumeric file names

Please, you must only use Alphanumeric characters in file names or it can break the server. There is a large notice there when uploading files telling you this. A little while ago there was a huge problem which would cause huge problems for the server and made completely inaccessible. Files like File:ゥ A.png are potentially dangerous, and if you come across any files with characters in their names other than alphanumeric characters, dash, and underscore, please flag them to be {{move}}d. --SnorlaxMonster 11:33, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for that but I copied a name of glitch to name of a file :/ Forgot about that one. Marked +-+-+ 09:41, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
