Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Snstar2006!

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 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!

Is it cool to steal maps from Psypoke? --Maxim 16:02, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Oh, hey I just read this after I posted the comment below. Listen, if what Maxim says is true and you are taking them from Psypokes then we cannot have that. Please make these maps yourself or don't bother uploading them. JelloTalk 16:24, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

OK I didn't mean to steal anything from Psypoke, I just thought that since they posted online then it is alrite for me to share them. I am making my own maps now and I will upload them as soon as I finish. Please keep the links so I don't need to edit any pages later. Thanks for reminding me. Snstar2006 17:33, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Alright, so, I've discussed this with User:Maverick Nate and he said that we can't have these maps at all, since that would be assuming permission from Psypokes, which we don't have. So I've gone ahead and deleted them and removed the links from Bulbapedia. In the future, please don't take images from other sites. JelloTalk 18:52, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

I know that it is necessary to remove the pictures, but is it necessary to remove the links as well?--Snstar2006 19:39, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

We can't just have links that don't exist anymore in the articles. When and if the proper images have been uploaded, it can be added back. JelloTalk 23:28, 9 July 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for uploading those maps. Could you upload them without any writing on it though? That would be preferred. Also, could you add [[Category:Game maps]] to your uploads as well? Thanks. JelloTalk 16:20, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

He can't because he took them from Psypoke. That's actually how I recognized them. If they weren't edited, it'd be impossible to say where they are from and there'd be probably no problem with using them. But they were edited by Psypoke, making them Psypoke's property. --Maxim 16:47, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up Maxim. We're either going to have to delete these maps, or upload our own (which...takes a while because these are time consuming to make). I'll see what can be done about this. Thanks again. JelloTalk 16:58, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
