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.
Thank you, and have a good time uploading here!
Please read the checklist when you upload media files, and be sure to tag and categorize all images. If you're confused about the requirements for uploading files, have a look at this guide. --—darklordtrom 01:51, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
- To make things easier when you upload, put the categories in the summary box on the upload form. The guide linked to above will show you how its done. —darklordtrom 00:52, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
There were a few pics eariler that I uploaded that replaced the ones you uploaded. They were squeezed, real bad quality and had logos on the bottom. This is a big problem because of copyright issues. But anyway, there's something you should know if you intend to upload any pics from Pokémon movies in the future. The frame ratio (width of the picture divided by the height) of a pic from a Pokémon movie has to be 1.78 or something close to that. Such as: 854x480, 712x400 and so on and so on. And please don't upload pics with even a partial logo on them. Keep both those things in mind. But other than that, good job so far categorizing and uploading .png pics. --Hmdwgf 20:42, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
Please don't upload files with names that contain nonalphanumeric filenames. Such filenames can cause problems for the server. Especially problematic are images that have macrons in their names--even before the no-nonalphanumeric policies, it was well known that characters such as macron-equipped vowels, chiisai-Us, gender symbols, and the like cause database errors and, as such, made easy targets for deletion. Make sure that any filename you upload contains only alphanumeric characters (any letter or number, as well as the space, underscore, and standard dash) from now on. --Shiningpikablu252 18:33, 5 December 2009 (UTC) I realised my error after the second attempted upload. Sorry, won't happen again. Watchermark 18:52, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
Try to provide summaries next time you upload pics. Thanks. --Hmdwgf 00:17, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Hey Watchermark, I deleted the drill mode image that you uploaded because we already have a better one (features full body and is in better/HD quality). Just for future reference, kindly use "Upload a new version" button on the respective image instead of uploading a separate one since both, this and the one you uploaded, had the same purpose. If you have any other question regarding it then please feel free to ask. Thank you ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 17:15, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
Please put spaces in between words of the file names of the non-TCG images you upload. For example, Juniper Karrablast.png is better instead of JuniperKarrablast.png. Pattyman (talk) 01:46, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
Linking to Bulbapedia
Links to Bulbapedia articles in file summaries need to be accomplished through link templates. Using standard
[[Title]] linking will create local Archives links that direct to non-existent pages. Thanks, - Kogoro - Talk to me - 23:42, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Just so that you know, when uploading a new version of an already existing image, which require the image's categories to be altered, adding them to your edit summary won't do the thing. You have to select the "Edit" function from the top of the page and edit them that way. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:18, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
