Always tag and categorize your uploaded images please. For English TCG cards use {{i-Fairuse-tcg}}. Categorize the card by adding [[Category:<Pokémon species>]]. Thanks! --Kevzo8 14:14, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I forgot to say that to you. Also, there is another category, that I will take care of. Maverick Nate 19:17, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Ok, will do, just unsure where I add the [[Category:<Pokémon species>]] is that in the summary section when I add media? for example if I were adding an image of Cacnea from the Crystal Guardians expansion would I add [[Category:<cacnea>]] to the summary text? I'm eager to learn the wiki code so if there are any other tags or categories that I should be adding please let me know so I can learn how to do so. Zedbill 10:46, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

For example, your uploading Cacnea card, do this:
Cacnea (EX Sandstorm 57)
Btw, licensing the image by choosing the Pokémon TCG card option. There's also another category, like what Mav said, like this:
[[Category:EX Sandstorm|057]]
Anyway, Mav will take care of it. --Kevzo8 11:04, 25 April 2009 (UTC)


You never told me you had Skyridge. How exciting! Maverick Nate 11:52, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

I just got a couple of booster packs the other day, I'm saving to buy a booster box in the next few weeks so hopefully I'll have a heap of scans to add, I'll also be getting a Rising Rivals Booster box pretty soon too Zedbill 11:59, 24 May 2009 (UTC)


Don't forget to categorize your images! This is important so people looking for them can find them. — THE TROM — 02:03, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, wasnt sure what categories to use for the promo cards - if in doubt should I just categorize by pokemon??? thanks Zedbill 04:57, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Yep. One category for the Pokémon, and one category for the set. Promo cards, though.... find some other promo cards out there and do what they do. I don't really have a handle on the TCG section, unfortunately. — THE TROM — 23:22, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
Ok will do - is it possible to add categories to images after they have been uploaded - and if so how would I do so? Thanks Zedbill 04:10, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Of course. Just click "edit" at the top of the page, like you do on the wiki. — THE TROM — 21:27, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Image sizes

There's now a limit. Read the Main Page for more info.--immewnitythemew 14:49, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Just a small note for your next upload

Apostrophes are generally not allowed except for certain cases, such as when Farfetch'd is involved, because it can apparently lock up the server which we don't really want. Also, most of the images you uploaded already existed, so if you could just reupload over the old smaller image next time, it would be fantastic, the button is under the image differences, if you were wondering. Thank you and pleasant uploading. --P S Yライダー 17:25, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

sorry didnt realise I could just update the existing images - will do so for future uploads (and will use apostrophes sparingly) - thanks for the tips Zedbill 07:07, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
