Pokébeach Images

Pokébeach is very protective of its images, and they would freak if they saw Bulbagarden using their images without their permission. It's for that reason I've marked your Charizard, Gallade, and Gastrodon West Sea images for speedy deletion.


I know you are on the 6th set but, When you add the set category to the page, add the number of the card to the category. It should organize them better on the category page and also show us what we don't have yet. For example... for base set Charizard, put the category as: [[Category:Base Set|004]] instead of just base set. This should help us in the future...sorry if I told you a little late.

Alright, I'll finish Gym Heroes tonight and start organizing the past sets tomorrow. I need about fifty of the Base Set images (Japanese ones) deleting before I start that, though, and I need to sort that out too. I'm gonna leave Jungle and Fossil for a couple of days as I've plenty of English ones to delete for that (then Japanese images deleting too). Double Dash 23:06, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Cool, just put the tag on and I'll take care of them. Moldy orange 00:34, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Bad images

I made a tag for unsatisfactory images on the archives. If you see any you don't think make quality standards, such as tiny card images, please put {{Bad image}} on the page, and it should appear in the category. Thanks, I know you were talking about something like this on Bulbapedia, but I think this is a more apprpriate place for it. Moldy orange 17:07, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, this is great. I'll be sure to use it whenever necessary. Double Dash 10:10, 13 August 2008 (UTC)


Sorry, I meant to put the 0 in, I just forgot. Moldy orange 13:59, 17 August 2008 (UTC)


Can you tell what that icon on the bottom of every card is recently uploaded by Lemonnlime? Because I think it could be a site stamp sort of image but I'm not sure. If they are site stamped, they need to be deleted ASAP. If not, then we should put the bad image because the sticker thing shouldn't be there. Moldy orange 23:02, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Things with watermarks, etc.

Not only are they unsatisfactory images, they must be deleted! I noticed that you put the bad image template on a card with ebay's watermark when it should have been put into the deletion category. I just wanted to tell you that if you ever find anything with a watermark or a site stamp, it needs to be deleted as soon as possible and not just put in the unsatisfactory images place.

Make sure to slip the Bad image template on a bunch of those as well, I trust that your quality standard is good enough for me. Moldy orange 21:00, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

When uploading

For cards that were uploaded already, and you would like to upload a better version, could you possibly just upload a new version of the image, instead of a new image that would need an edit on the card page? It is just easier to go on the card image page and upload a new version. But, don't do that for things with names similar to: "Image:101 113 LUCKY.jpg". Thank you Moldy orange 19:02, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Aye, no problem. Cipher 11:16, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
Categories go below the licensing. MaverickNate 21:15, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
I'm not changing it now, I've just done every single Supreme Victors card. =P Cipher (Talk | BP) 21:16, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
If they already are at the Standard name, that means we don't want the crappy English site images. Also, I'm not very amused. You should have waited for a response than starting to do it wrongly.MaverickNate 21:55, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Please don't delete if not sure!

You uploaded a "new" logo of the Platinum card set, but the other one had te symbol, and was linked to via Bulbanews. --Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 17:16, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Also, do not delete previous revisions of images, in case there is a problem and it has to be reverted. --Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 17:42, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
Uhh, he knows better than you do, and he only deleted previous versions for copyright violations. Maverick Nate 20:45, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
Oh... that makes sense! --Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 21:21, 28 December 2008 (UTC)


I knew you couldn't leave Bulbagarden! Happy (belated) welcome back!--Mew a.k.a. Immewnity 14:28, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm not back, per se, I'm just offering a helping hand for a little while. Thanks anyway. =) Cipher (Talk | BP) 14:32, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
Oh, you'll stay... We'll make sure of it... *devises evil plot*--Mew a.k.a. Immewnity 15:29, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
