Water

Your Surf and Water Gun images are not really that good....but you put it up....fix it up until it looks nicer...Ht14 21:45, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

It's really like that. It's from the game itself.

Please Tell

What program do you use to make those .gif images???--CoolPikachu!2 22:28, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

I don't use a program. Tc26 11:18, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Stop

You aren't helping if you don't add all possible categories! Moldy orange 01:39, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

The category is under "Ash Ketchum," and don't add the category if the image of it is obscured such as the Igglybuff was. Moldy orange 01:54, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
And there is a category for Ash's Pikachu. Moldy orange 01:54, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

You might not have known this

but with things that would have a list of characters higher than ten, use "Category:Large group images". Moldy orange 19:02, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

And, use "Category:Characters of the day" Moldy orange 19:08, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. Do you guys have a HELP on Categories here? Tc26 01:29, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
No, all we have is a list, and all anime characters that are minor or maybe in three episodes go in characters of the day. That is how I set it up. Moldy orange 03:19, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Please

When editing images, please don't change the description to "Official Platinum Sprite". That description has a capitalization error at the end, has no punctuation, and most of the old descriptions are better. Baby G 22:38, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Don't yell at him, he knows exactly what to do. And the summary isn't even necessary, it's not like anyone even looks at them. Moldy orange 12:51, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
I'm not yelling at him; do you see an exclamation point in any of my sentences? No. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 15:18, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I see two--Kuki 15:30, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Kuki, this is one of the reasons why your admin nomination on Bulbapedia was rejected. You edit people's comments and then try to say that that's how they made the comments. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 15:34, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

The reason was I didn't meet the 6 month requirement--Kuki 15:39, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Please don't let single issues transfer from one section to the other: leave archives issues on the archives and pedia issues on Bulbapedia. Moldy orange 16:31, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Platinum Sprites

Am I the only one not getting sprites from serebii or other sites? Tc26 09:58, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Serebii gets sprites from Zhen Lin.--Tavisource 03:38, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Should we...

Get a new head pic for Ash's Pikachu?--Kuki 01:24, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Why even try that?!?!? That will just cause a whole lot of trouble! Moldy orange 01:26, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Nah, Pikachu appears lots of times. Too many to choose and, more or less, it will be changed often. Tc26 01:27, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

I mean, we changed Squirtle Bulbasaur Charizard and Turtwig so I just thought a new, recent pic would b nice--Kuki 01:28, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Red Alert

Look what Fabu-Vinny did!--Kuki 14:33, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

I never saw it but im guessing it's a image with the vest? Tc26 14:57, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Yeah. The sprite of Dawn's Buneary--Kuki 16:20, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Umm

Why are you redoing almost every sprite? You should at least talk about it first before changing SO many...but I guess it's fine...but the Pink Butterfree looks a bit weird...it's head.--Tavisource 03:39, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

XD Lugia

Put it with Prmal Dialga on the PSC page--Kuki 11:47, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Move images and categories

When you upload an image of a Pokémon using a move in the anime, it should be formatted like this:
==Summary==
<Pokémon> using <move> in the anime.
==Licensing:==
{{i-Fairuse-screenshot-anime}}
[[Category:Moves (anime)]]
[[Category:<Pokémon>]]

Please do it like this in the future. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 02:03, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Are you gonna bother to actually do this when you upload move images? --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 13:41, 5 October 2008 (UTC)


I usually do--{{u|Kuki}} 13:55, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Template:Anime move

Always subst it. No exceptions! Moldy orange 13:14, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

You haven't been doing this. You must subst it if you want to keep it. Moldy orange 14:29, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
It just takes longer. What's the point? Tc26 12:09, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
How does it take longer! Just write subst: right after {{. If not, the server will go under so much stress...and we don't want another end of the month crash! Moldy orange 22:33, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
Fill in the template and have subst...you need to do both for it to work. Just fill it out like normal, and add the subst right before you upload. Moldy orange 22:34, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Category Template...

Always call with subst:!!!!! Maverick Nate 15:50, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Why?

Why are you still uploading anime screenshots as .jpgs? They MUST ALWAYS be .pngs now! Chocolate 23:16, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't have converting time. Not much of a difference anyway if I did. Tc26 01:27, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
But they need to ALWAYS be .pngs! Why are you still uploading .jpgs?! Chocolate 22:33, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
I don't think you understand how serious this is. TTEchidna wants .pngs as much as possible, and you are not listening to what he wants. This is very serious. Chocolate 15:55, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
Chocolate is right. png.s are the way to go now. Try your best to make all of them pngs, but you aren't supposed to convert them, you are supposed to take them as pngs. Maverick Nate 17:55, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
tc, WHY are you still uploading .jpgs? Chocolate 02:19, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Lack of time. Sorry. Tc26 02:23, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
If you can't make them .pngs, don't even upload them. TTE says that we always need .pngs. Chocolate 02:24, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
It's clear that you can make them .pngs, since you did a few days ago, so either make them .pngs or don't upload them at all. Chocolate 14:58, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
You're still uploading .jpgs?! Chocolate 15:27, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Seriously. If you have time to take the picture, it doesn't take more than fricking two seconds to choose "Portable Network Graphics (*.png)" in your image editor's Save as... screen! I know that no modern image editor is uncapable to save as png file, even MS Paint has been able to for a long time (the feature was added somewhere between 95 and XP, don't remember exactly) Do not upload jpgs anymore. UltimateSephiroth 17:01, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
As long as anime screenshots are taken from Filb.de like this one (original file here; thank you for not giving credit, by the way) it makes no sense to upload them as PNG since they were already JPEG-compressed and as such should be uploaded in their unaltered state, since converting a JPG to PNG has no quality benefits, it only produces a much larger file size (in this case 14 KB -> 100 KB). Maverick Nate actually already said it right. And please stop harassing people like this on their talk pages, chocolate and co. - your knowledge of file formats is apparently too poor to advise others. Thank you. --Nyoo 14:04, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Categories!

Head images (and all images) get categories. Also, the heads get both the anime fairuse template and the head image template, as well as every anime screenshot getting a summary with links. Please start doing this. Maverick Nate 20:16, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Also, you can't just take the image we have now and change it to a png. They all must be taken fresh from the episode. All anime images must be taken from the episode through ways of printscreen or other methods, not just changing the format. Maverick Nate 20:29, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Image summaries

Please don't remove them. Mr. 0 17:45, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Every image must have them. Do not remove them again, or you will find yourself without the privilege of uploading images.Maverick Nate 20:05, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Every image must have a summary. Maverick Nate 02:10, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

105.png

Please look at this page about the discussion to keep the image:

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/User_talk:TTEchidna/Archive_Dec_08_1#105_image....3F (Pikastorm 23:33, 10 February 2009 (UTC))

Head images

All head image changes must be brought up with Sketch or me. no exceptions. --Maverick Nate 18:04, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Sorry about that. Staraptor spoiler. Tc26 02:12, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Platinum sprites

Please upload them as animated PNGs if possible.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 19:24, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Uhhh, we already had them. Don't upload duplicates. Maverick Nate 01:18, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Some may need gifs, some pngs. Tc26 01:26, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
They were Duplicates. We already had all of the gifs if you would have bothered to look. Maverick Nate 19:11, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Categorize

Sorry if I'm bugging you, but please categorize the Image headers.--Force Fire 14:05, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

They are both supposed to have image summaries, like all other images, which both of you have been failing to do anyway... Maverick Nate 14:16, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Image Headers

Thanks for the help. Now can you upload Image headers for the Original series, See my Bulbapedia Userpage for the list.--Force Fire 05:14, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

I want to but I don't know where I can find/how to get any. Tc26 05:14, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Gah. sounds like we're facing the same problem. I'll see if I can get some.--Force Fire 05:16, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Or ask around where the other good ones came from. Tc26 05:17, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Guys, I said each image needs a summary. Don't just add one thing without the other. Do both, or don't do either. Also, the dub title should be in the image template, not the epicode. Maverick Nate 17:17, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Looks like someone forgot the rule about getting permission to change head images. Good thing I'm in a good mood. Maverick Nate 02:04, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
Sorry about that. Internet has been going on and off recently. I put the reasons why and you can always revert anyway. Check AG106. Tc26 12:20, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Summaries, again

Why haven't you been putting any summaries in? You should know by now that it is necessary for each image to have a summary, but you constantly refuse to start putting any in. Why is that? Maverick Nate 01:56, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I was in a rush. I have to go soon. I'll place them in a bit. Tc26 02:54, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Those recent uploads

the tags should be under a "Licensing" heading... but, it can be ignored, this time Maverick Nate 04:18, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Any new HGSS images

need to go into Category:Early Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver images. Thanks! Maverick Nate 04:03, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Ok. I didn't know about it. Tc26 01:59, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
It's new. Maverick Nate 02:34, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

quality over convention

Whenever someone uploads jpgs, don't convert them to png and re-upload them. This lowers the quality. We want pngs for their quality...not because of their name. We don't want people converting jpgs to pngs. This is what I assume you did with the recent uploads of Paul's Pokémon images. We aren't mad, we just want anyone to do this anymore. If they are jpgs, just leave them as so. Maverick Nate 14:38, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

FYI

We have a new category for anime abilities.THE TROM — 22:24, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

I love that C&T logo.

Oh god it's beautiful. TTEchidna 08:53, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! Now for the "Locations" logo. Tc26 08:54, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Pichu artwork

I've never seen this artwork. Where did ya get it from? It's certainly Sugimori's. --Maxim 09:43, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

It's new from the newly updated movie 12 site. Tc26 09:44, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Since you insist...

That the image [1] is not a stretched version of [2] , I would like to ask you where the Pikachu you got the current logo's Pikachu was from. I can tell that the source of [3] is [4] , and the resizing artifacts are obvious in the current image. Please, show me that you did not resize the image.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 17:33, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Obviously, I had to make the image bigger, like all the rest. I did not stretch it though so that it wasn't disproportional. ALL project logos I made HAD to be stretched. Tc26 01:26, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
By "stretched" I meant that it was made larger, thus lowering the quality. I will modify it with a same-colored art from the anime.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 01:32, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Fine, do whatever you want with it. If an admin/someone else doesn't like it, take it up with them. Tc26 01:44, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

What program are you using?

Your png's are significantly smaller than mine size-wise.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 13:13, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

What do you mean by smaller? Tc26 13:17, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
nvm.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 13:19, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
