This version of BW064 header was indeed better than the one we had earlier. Yes, there was a logo but there was a huge difference in the quality of both revisions. So, a "bad image" template is rather preferred in that case, instead of reverting it. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 12:17, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Sorry about that. I understood that the quality of that image was better than the previous one, but it kind of went two ways. Pattyman 19:24, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Anime moves

As a general rule, move images from the anime shouldn't be animated. A still screenshot or two is more than enough for the vast majority. Even three still images is fine. It's not until the move gets really complex that we should consider animation. Werdnae (talk) 05:48, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

True but I'm not planning on animating them all, any of them that are complex as you mentioned. What about ones that take up the whole template (the maximum is four images)? Pattyman 06:03, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

EToP move images

My good Bulbapedia friend Littlmiget123 is currently bringing up to code the Electric Tale of Pikachu move manga templates, many of the are being left without any images. Could you upload those which are missing and those which will be missing after they are created in the near future? Thanks.
Plus, some Adventures manga templates are also missing images. I don't know which manga you have access to, but I tell you this: I hate seeing any pages in the Category of "Moves used in the manga needing images". I know, it's a lot of articles, but do the best you can. Thank you once again. --FinnishPokéFan92 09:20, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
I already left this same message for Ataro, but since he hasn't done anything yet and I'm a bit of a hasty, I also left this message for you. Hope you understand.

I have access to both EToP and Adventures. Knowing Ataro, I bet he is already finding some. Pattyman 16:23, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Deletion tag

Just add the deletion tag to pages, please. Don't replace the page's content with it...even if it is a redirect. It would be helpful to see where the image went when the page is deleted. MaverickNate 19:53, 23 February 2012 (UTC)


How do I place an image in a category? (I feel embarrassed to ask this).--Hikaru Wazana 20:10 - 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Simply type [[Category:whatever]]. The whatever is the character in the image, as I did with the laughing Typhlosion image that was uploaded earlier. You did the right thing by asking me. Pattyman 20:16, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. ^_^ --Hikaru Wazana 20:20 - 20 February 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome. :) Pattyman 20:31, 4 March 2012 (UTC)


Not all gifs need to be made into pngs. Images for which the animation is crucial or highly important to the image must animate in all browsers, and therefore cannot be pngs. Werdnae (talk) 18:43, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Shoot, I didn't know those maps were supposed to stay as gifs. Oh well, better luck next time (for me). On the bright side, at least I ended finding some of the maps that were not categorized correctly. I think the pngs that were uploaded aren't needed then. Pattyman 01:07, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you

For all your hard work and efforts, thank you so much. Lately, you have been doing a really great job whether it is about moving stuff or editing categories/summaries. Yes, sometimes you do make some mistakes but that is just a part of learning. I really appreciate it, keep up the good work :) ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 16:28, 14 March 2012 (UTC)


Hi Patty, I see you're an administrator, and I could use your help. I have an image for Ten'i_Village, but it won't upload. I upload it, and I have to modify its description. I click submit, and check the recent uploads. It doesn't show up. It doesn't show in my contributions. I could use some help. Thanks! --Skymin23 01:12, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Never mind, I got it to work. Thanks though.--Skymin23 01:23, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome. Might have been naming issues. Pattyman 01:24, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Help again

Hy, it's me again. I made an upload from one image of May's Eevee and not seen that file name is much longer. How i made another edition with better name??--Hikaru Wazana 00:10 - 22 March 2012 (UTC)

The file name has to be moved (unfortunately, admins are only allowed to do that). I just fixed the problem though. If you want to request a better file name, you can place the {{move}} tag on the page and the name you want (has to make sense). Pattyman 00:23, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
Ok, well, thanks again. ^_^ --Hikaru Wazana 00:25 - 22 March 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome. Feel free to ask any questions if you're stuck, that is what we are here for. Pattyman 00:27, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

RE: ppm pokemon

my scanner is down. there is no plan to buy a new one yet... although i will try to get one soon. -Pokeant 15:07, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Sorry to hear about that. Pattyman 15:27, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Heads up

Don't forget to double check the image usage in case if they are being used on Bulbapedia or Bulbanews. I do check them before deleting but still, it is nice to double check them in order to avoid the ugly broken links. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 17:44, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

I am having trouble editing on Bulbanews, it says that I don't have permission to edit pages in the Page mainspace (despite seeing some broken links on there). Bulbapedia, I am fine with. Pattyman 17:53, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I can understand. Anyway, if an image needs to be fixed on Bulbanews, just drop me a message. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 17:57, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Anime move screenshots

How you get them? They are in pretty good quality. Marked +-+-+ 15:42, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

I got them from the Poké site as screenshots. Pattyman 15:46, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Old versions

Hey Pattyman, can you delete the old versions of Bertha Hippowdon.png, Bertha Golem.png and Bertha Hippowdon.png. I mean those who I uploaded before. TheSeviper 16:21, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

I don't think I have the power to do that. However, I do have the power to hide revisions which is completely different from deleting them. Pattyman 17:27, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Help again:Returns

Hello, it's me again. I have tried to send this images but i don't have any results, i make any mistake?? [1] [2]--Hikaru Wazana 03:55 - 7 April 2012 (UTC)

The server needs time to sync them in. You didn't make any mistakes. Pattyman 12:18, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Ok, thanks again.^_^ --Hikaru Wazana 12:35 - 7 April 2012 (UTC)


Kindly check your Yahoo inbox. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 01:59, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Nevermind, just got a failure delivery notification so you probably didn't get the mail. Anyway, do you have an AIM account? If yes, please let me know. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 02:06, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
Nope, I don't have an AIM account yet*. However, if you want, you can PM me on the forums. Pattyman 02:18, 13 April 2012 (UTC)


Then what did they meant ? I've already uploaded a jpg version and replaced the png.s on bulbapedia with it. What should I do then ?----DJWolfy 18:17, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

They wanted an image that is from an official source (one that were allowed to use), not from the jpg that was uploaded on the archives. Uploading the png from the jpg can make the image look bad. They weren't asking for a jpg. I was going to fix the reason to make it clear but I had to do something else at the moment. Sorry for the mix up that happened. Pattyman 23:33, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for resolving my inquire. There is no problem. I've already reverted my edits.----DJWolfy 13:27, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Category:Overworld Trainer sprites

Just noticed that adding the category via template makes them sort... different way. About 136 files to fix to the new way. >_> Or do it different way... but now the only I can think of is to add the category into template. Marked +-+-+ 08:19, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
