Before uploading any images taken from Nintendo 3DS games, please take a moment to read this message.
Got a spare minute? The Archives need some love. See the to-do list to find a way to help.
If you upload a new image make sure you name and categorize it properly. If in doubt, ask an admin or see our FAQ page.

Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Mamoswine Gliscor!

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!

Make sure that you place the Image header templates onto the image headers whenever you upload them. Also, summaries and categories are extremely important, and you cannot forget those either. Maverick Nate 19:44, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Also, I am unsure of how you are getting the screenshots, but the header you uploaded for EP068 does not look good. It looks like you blew up the gif that was already here and converted it to png. If this is true, don't do it again. We want quality, and converting from a gif completely kills the quality. Don't do it again. Maverick Nate 19:51, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

All images you ever upload need summaries and categories. Please start adding these in immediately. Maverick Nate 04:05, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Hey Mamoswine

When uploading those screenshots, try to pick one that has something to do with the episode and make sure their clear.--Force Fire 10:12, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

and this..are not clear.

When changing image headers

Make sure to change the appropriate categories too. When you don't, you are getting images into categories like Category:Raichu or Category:Ash's Pikachu when they are no where to be seen in the image. Maverick Nate 04:20, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

It would be a huge help if you checked where else the images were used before replacing them. For instance, this article was left looking silly because you didn't check to remove the image. This can be done quite easily, with the tabs on the right-hand-side that say Bulbapedia and Bulbanews. Other than that, keep up the good work. — THE TROM — 10:13, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
This is the second time you've been warned about changing the categories when you upload new images. You must do this. Maverick Nate 15:45, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Third category warning. Please please please don't forget to update categories when you upload a new version of the image. —darklordtrom 01:18, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Category names

Category:Ash Ketchum, Category:Dawn (anime), Category:Anime errors. MaverickNate 02:10, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
