Make sure that each image you upload has lowercase extensions. Also put categories on the pages please. Maverick Nate 03:13, 2 June 2009 (UTC)


..(Serebii)? Are those images taken from Kevzo8 06:05, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Yeah. Done via Microsoft FrontPage... Ht14 12:37, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
Did you ask for permission? We could get in trouble with Serebii for taking their screenshots from them without permission. Kevzo8 14:33, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
...good point...I'll stop for now...what should I do though? Regarding asking Serebii I mean... ht14 14:36, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
Uh, that's a problem. It's either you take the screenshots by yourself or ask Serebii about it then give credits to his site. Kevzo8 14:55, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
I'll do the latter...only...I dunno how to reach him... ht14 14:56, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
He's always lurking on forums. He seems to be a nice person though. Kevzo8 15:03, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
Ok...or I'll email him... ht14 15:04, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
He said it's fine. ht14 16:02, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
Credit them correctly though: for example, look at "File:Falkner.PNG". Maverick Nate 21:41, 24 June 2009 (UTC)


Get rid of the old template and license properly with {{i-Fairuse-sprite-game}}. Otherwise it's categorized wrong. Don't forget section headers for licence and summary. —darklordtrom 04:58, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

K. ht14 04:59, 15 September 2009 (UTC)


Can't move jpg files to png filenames. —darklordtrom 02:47, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

True... how about jpg to jpg? As in <whatever the user called it>.jpg to Spinner_gen_4.jpg? ht14 02:49, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
In case you didn't know, jpg images cannot be made transparent... unfortunately... —darklordtrom 07:49, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
That's unfortunate... ht14 21:05, 26 October 2009 (UTC)


Follow it. MaverickNate 21:01, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

The summary is simply the article's name, and there are never spaces in between licensing and categories. MaverickNate 21:02, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Uh oh... I've always been doing that for practically EVERY single image edit... ht14 21:03, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
I'm talking about the spacing. This means game images. ht14 21:05, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Just start doing it from now on. It doesn't really matter. MaverickNate 22:02, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Ok then. ht14 23:15, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Question: should I revert all from the TCG expansion I'm doing right now or just leave it? ht14 23:19, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
The spaces are fine. On the other hand EX Legend Maker has less than 100 cards, so all the categoriews should only have 2 digits. Fix all that you changed. MaverickNate 17:13, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
All right. ht14 22:03, 2 November 2009 (UTC)


You've been an immense help here. Sorry that I can't be online here as often as I'd like. You deserve this. First thing though, when you move pages, delink the redirect, and delete it. MaverickNate 23:32, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. Understood. ht14 23:33, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Better idea

Why not just "Z4.png"? CuboneKing 20:59, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure. One, PNG to png is actually a minor thing (though highly recommended). So, technically, I didn't need to move it unless a change to something other than the title is needed. Two, some say sprite, some don't. But for the sake of everything, I guess I'll move that too. ht14 21:02, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Crystal images

Sorry I have no idea how :D Speaking of which, some kind of bulk uploader would be brilliant, I was being really OCD at the time and spent three hours uploading those, one by one. --Cadellin 09:34, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

It's ok. ht14 23:30, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

Remember what Magnedeth told you?

Don't do that here. That isn't the style for here. Don't put the spaces on the image pages. MaverickNate 02:36, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

? Spacing? Oh that. You said it didn't matter... unless you're talking about un-cat related... ht14 02:37, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't really matter, but if you are going to be editing the page anyway, I prefer that it is my style: especially on card pages MaverickNate 02:48, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
I am still very much confused... ht14 02:50, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
That meant quit putting it in. But, if it is already done, don't go editing pages just to remove/add spaces. Just don't have the spaces for anything else you ever edit MaverickNate 02:54, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
You mean between the summary and licensing, right? I thought that's what DETH told me to do... argh... ht14 02:56, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

When you are adding the summaries and stuff

Don't forget about {{unused}}. You have to add that into the summary when the image isn't used on the wiki. MaverickNate 19:04, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

K. ht14 19:04, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
The images still need summaries. MaverickNate 19:07, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
All... got it. ht14 19:08, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
Gasp is right: you forgot the unused. MaverickNate 19:17, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
Don't make me head-desk again! MaverickNate 22:04, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
That means a lot of Template:unused pictures since there are a set of screenshots from movie 8, etc. I understand though. ht14 22:06, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
Ninety-nine percert of the screenshots by episode will be deleted. You should be skipping over those since they will be deleted by the turn of the decade. MaverickNate 22:10, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
Ok, so you're telling me this for an image that will probably be deleted... ok then... I'll handle the non-anime sprites then, or those that don't have EP/AP/DP in the name, etc. ht14 22:11, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Category:Characters of the day

It lumps together all the recurring characters too. For the sake of organization, everyone is considered a CotD. MaverickNate 13:44, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Ok... then the category is a misnomer... can't we name it as Anime characters? ht14 13:44, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
Go ahead: you have 460 images to go, starting...NOW! MaverickNate 13:47, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
Ok, that's fine. Actually... I don't know if you're sarcastic. 460 isn't too bad... btw, your delete just explained that those CotDs with pics showing them younger mean that there are 2 pics of them. ht14 13:48, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Wanna know a secret?

The sprite standard does not have the hyphen in it. MaverickNate 18:58, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

What about the letters? Unless you're talking about current sprite. If not, what about Unown-S? Are we going to label it as 201 s s?ht14 20:24, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
Oh, definitely not. It would be more like "201S s" if anything. And since the alternate-coloration "s" descriptor is always in lowercase, while most one-letter form denotations are in capitals...--Shiningpikablu252 04:51, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
What about beta? ht14 13:53, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Aychtee I'm gonna KILL YOUUUUUUUU

NO. PARENTHESES. EVER. GOT IT? Alphanumeric! A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z, a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, q, r, s, t, u, v, w, x, y, z, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, underscore, and dash! Only! You crashed the server for a whole third of a day! Make sure your filenames don't suck! TTEchidna 10:46, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Sigh... I'm really sorry... wait, when did I use parentheses? I'm confused. ht14 00:06, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Hate to tell you

But Category:EX Dragon had only 2 digits for a reason. It had less than 100 cards, and the three digits were purposefully not used. MaverickNate 04:19, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Charizard. ht14 04:19, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Damn, you win. But let this be a lesson to you. MaverickNate 04:25, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
*grins* I've noticed beforehand and I was getting suspicious about the ordering. ht14 04:26, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

"I demand to know who did this" on File:Spr 4p 440.png

That was you. And I know it wasn't intentional, just a botched tagging conversion. --Shiningpikablu252 02:45, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
