Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Turtwig A!

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!

I see you're playing Archives now

See what I did. Note the license I put on it, and also the moves category. —darklordtrom 11:41, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

You're a quick learner, that's good. Check how I improved your recent contribs, though. You're still painting outside the lines :P —darklordtrom 11:56, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
{{i-Fairuse-screenshot-anime}} is to be used if the image is a screenshot. The other one is for official artwork. —darklordtrom 23:20, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your help. There are now no uncategorised files, for the first time in my career. —darklordtrom 23:50, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
Hah! Back in my day, when no one cared about the archives except for a little moldy orange, there were over one thousand! So many goodies to behold! And so many days wasted away learning about the archives in order to put them all in their place. MaverickNate 00:14, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
Your welcome. Turtwig A 00:39, 27 October 2009 (UTC)


Please make it to the likes of png, not PNG, gif, not GIF. We dislike capitalized... Thanks. ht14 22:11, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

I made it that way because it was linked like that here though I'll remember that in the future. Thanks Turtwig A 22:29, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Using {{Delete}}

Please write out the reason for consistency. I know that one is self-explanatory (small, low-quality), but just write it anyway. ht14 01:34, 30 November 2009 (UTC)


Just for helping me out. ^^ It's really appreciated, and I'm really very sorry if I caused you any trouble with what I had. I'm still kind of new to this, so any tips and stuff would be lovely. Shiay 15:14, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

You shouldn't ask me. I'm not really active here. Turtwig A 17:49, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Using {{anipng}}

I'm probably not the best one to tell you this, but you should only use the {{anipng}} template when the image is actually animated, and several of the Pokémon sprites you have added the template to (DP sprites, around the beginning of the second generation) are unmoving. Don't worry about these - I am removing the template for you - but you might want to be more careful in the future. Goldenpoke111 23:20, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Okay. Turtwig A 02:19, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Adding period

Only needed in sentences... in the case shown, it wasn't quite necessary... ht14 02:39, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

So are you saying that periods aren't needed in summaries? Turtwig A 15:11, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
No... if it's a sentence, sure. If not, no. ht14 16:01, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Okay then. Thank you for clarifying and telling me. Turtwig A 19:08, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
No prob. ht14 01:46, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
