Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, FinnishPokéFan92!

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.

  • 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 Bulbapedia 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.
  • 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!

To quote the welcome

All extensions must be lowercase. MaverickNate 18:52, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

To add to that

Please don't upload bad-quality pics like that. All anime pics have to be in the .png format. Never in any other format, especially .jpg. Why? Because .png is a higher quality picture format than .jpg. Keep that in mind. --Hmdwgf 22:51, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Please upload in png. Thank you. ht14 18:03, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Pics with logos at the bottom

I don't think anybody told you this, so I'm going to tell you: Please don't upload anime pics with logos on them. Never ever do that. Plus, upload pics in .png format that are high quality and are larger than 200x150, not in any other format, inculding the .jpg format. It is so imperative you don't upload another pic like this. --Hmdwgf 23:03, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

OK. I got it. --FinnishPokéFan92 18:22, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
I don't think you do. Either you're ignoring me or you have no idea what a logo is. You're most likely ignoring me because you are also still uploading .jpgs. Just in case you don't know, a television station logo is a symbol that represents a broadcasting company. Such as a WB logo which was the American TV station Pokémon was initially broadcast on from 1998 - 2006. And one of the pictures you uploaded has that very logo on it. Stop uploading those bad pics, ESPECIALLY the ones with logos on them. I'm going to send you an e-mail with something useful inside it. --Hmdwgf 01:30, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
OK, I thought so. And what comes to jpgs, my image source has its images in jpg-form. --FinnishPokéFan92 13:44, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
If you could name me a possible image source besides bulbapedia, and photobucket, I'd be glad to hear it. --FinnishPokéFan92 13:45, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
