Welcome

Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, TheSeviper!

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!

Hi

Hey Sev, please license the pictures correctly and categorize them as well. Kindly read the F.A.Qs and fix the sandile images you uploaded a while ago. If you need some help then feel free to ask. Thank you ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 14:57, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Uploads

Please do not upload the images which we already have, but with different names. If you want to replace an image with a better one, then just upload over it by clicking on "Upload a new version of this file" button on that image. Along with that, please license the images properly otherwise you might get a short block for not following the rules. If you have any queries or question, then please feel free to ask. Thank you ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 12:13, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Licensing

Please license the images correctly, if an image is taken from anime then select the respective license and don't leave it empty. Kindly take care of it in the future, if you have any question regarding it, please feel free to ask. Thank you. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 13:29, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Please do not forget to add the appropriate summaries while uploading images. Kindly check the FAQs for more clarification. Thank you ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 09:37, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Regarding File:SS025.png...

Hi Seviper! While we appreciate you trying to upload a HD image for File:SS025.png, I must tell you that anime screenshots with the TV Tokyo watermark in the upper-right-hand corner of the screen are prohibited. If you can find a way to photoshop it out, we will consider using it.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to do it myself. If you want details, try asking one of other staff members. - Chosen of Mana 14:51, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading the HD one, it is indeed better but as Chosen mentioned above, it would be nice if there's no watermark on the pics. Don't worry, I'll remove the watermark from the image that you uploaded. Have a nice day ahead :) ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 15:12, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
No problems! I'm very happy that i helped! If you want more HD screenshots for SS024 and SS025, just tell me and I will upload them (I have the full special in 720p)! TheSeviper 18:35, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

File sizes

Hi there. I'd like to inform you that images on the archives are not to exceed 1280 x 1280 pixels. The widths of your recent uploads have been exceeding 1280px. Please make sure that the image widths are 1280px or below before you upload them. Thank you :) --Kenji-girl 17:52, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Request

Can you upload a bigger image of these three moves? Probably around the 1280x720. Pattyman 00:50, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

No problems! TheSeviper 13:37, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Spelling

Please make sure that the file names are correct before you upload them. A few of the files you just uploaded had incorrect names. Thanks. --Kenji-girl 10:47, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

HQ

Where did you get those high quality images from such as this one? Pattyman 17:43, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

I have some of the episodes in 720p. TheSeviper 19:17, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
DVD I guess. Pattyman 20:58, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
No, I'm downloading them. TheSeviper 10:57, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Who's That Pokemon

Would you be able to upload an image for WTP_BW064.png? G50 12:27, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. Also, would you be able to upload the missing WTP_BW059.png and WTP_BW057.png as well? G50 16:32, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, but I can't help for these episodes ;\ TheSeviper 19:14, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Pokemon artwork.

Please, whenever you replaced Pokemon artwork, always make sure the file is squared. Even dimensions for all sides. Ataro (talk) 12:09, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Excuse me, I wasn't around for a long time and I didn't know for that rule --TheSeviper (talk) 12:12, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
