Hi, could you add the Phantom Thief! Pokémon V article to the Pokémon manga article. electric utility companies charge customers for It should be in the Original stories section. I tried editing it myself and I almost got it done, but I couldn’t write the html code (or whatever code it is) good enough. I would be grateful if you could help me with this. PokeAwesome94 Should be good to go as well. Just try to copy the wikicode from the other entries, like by copying and pasting a similar entry then changing the information. That’s mostly how I learned ^^’ — Zesty Cactus 02:37, 9 June 2012 (UTC) Add some images of the characters in Phantom Thief! Pokémon V to it’s article

Yeah, I was thinking about that cause there is a picture in the booklet of Mondo trying to cooperate with Meowth and I was thinking that’s better for the article than a random picture from like Best Wishes series XD (my copy of the CD came in the mail today :3) I personally consider the two radio dramas canon to the anime, but I have no idea what the accepted consensus is around here. The Birth of Mewtwo radio drama was partly adapted into The Uncut Story Of Mewtwo’s Origin and added to the "Kanzenban" version of M01 so if you consider the two dramas to be of equal standing, I suppose it’s no more or less canon than that. Of course, Miyamoto, Madame Boss and Mondo conveniently don’t appear or get referenced in any other sources so it’s anybody’s guess, I suppose. I suppose you could take it like the "expanded universe" of Star Wars. — Zesty Cactus 05:23, 20 July 2013 (UTC) Pokémon Try Adventure

A little while ago I went through the Gen I overworld sprites and noticed just about every Trainer Class and important character has their own image despite a large portion of them using the same sprite. I put the delete request template on a lot of them since they’re duplicates but I was wondering which file is decided as the original? Bill and Brock both use the same sprite as a few Trainer Classes, so which one should be the one kept? Also, should I be the one to change the files on the ‘pedia or let whoever decides to delete the dupes do it? Glik ( talk) 04:26, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

You can definitely relink the sprites yourself, it actually makes it easier for the staff member who deletes them (probably me) because they don’t have to relink it themself ^^’ I’m not really quite sure which one classifies as the "original" though. I guess the most widely used, or maybe the first one alphabetically? I don’t even really know haha. Just pick one I guess 😛 — Zesty Cactus 04:30, 10 January 2014 (UTC) Upload attempt

So, I’m not entirely sure of why, but when trying to upload a screenshot to the Archives, I was told I am not allowed to create new pages. I don’t use the archives often, so I’m not sure what’s changed in terms of what users can and cannot do, but is there a way I can possibly upload a new image? For reference, the image was of Dr. gas house eggs Fuji’s silhouette in Pokémon Origins, which I was trying to upload for the possibility of adding to the proper article. Regards, Schiffy (瀬藤健二) ( Talk Contribs) 21:04,1/20/2014 (UTC) Hi there Schiffy, to add new images on the Archives, you must first be autoconfirmed. To become autoconfirmed requires a certain number of edits, which can be achieved by tagging and categorizing images and helping with general cleanup. gas prices going up june 2016 For more information, see Archives:FAQ. Once you are autoconfirmed, you should be able to upload images easily. Hope that helps! — Zesty Cactus 03:43, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Seems odd though, since I have uploaded new images in the past, but after that, I linked my accounts on the three Bulbagarden sites. So, I’m not sure if there’s any relation or if it was just a user rights change…. Schiffy (瀬藤健二) ( Talk Contribs) 04:24,1/21/2014 (UTC) Well I think by pure chance that last message of mine threw me into the autoconfirmed group….. Problem solved then, I guess.

I noticed that you wrote down the epicodes for the Pokémon Omega Ruby Crimson Passion and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Indigo Wisdom as CPIW. If you want, you can move all instances of ASIW and ORCP to CPIW on the image file names since it would make sense to have them that way, especially for characters who appeared in both such as Steven Stone.

Yes, it is exactly as ht14 has explained. Unfortunately to become autoconfirmed and gain permission to upload files is an automated process done by the wiki software and I have no control over it (nor does any of the other staff). gas stoichiometry calculator Let me know if you have any more questions. — Zesty Cactus 03:55, 11 December 2015 (UTC) Uploading XY party screen screenshot

Hi! Your screenshot looks good, I’ll just need you to send me a test pic (as Abcboy mentioned in his talk page). You’re playing XY, right? I’ll ask you to catch a Flabébé (I don’t care what colour lol), nickname it Syd and send me a pic of its stats screen (you can just post it here). Once I can verify this you’re free to upload 😀 thank you!! — Zesty Cactus 06:44, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Special:ListFiles/Brandondorf9999 – On other NIWA wikis, such as MarioWiki (I am very active there), this user was known for uploading disallowed images, such as forced widescreen screenshots when the game was incapable of rendering widescreen natively (such as Pokémon XD), FOV abuse in images ( File:Pokemon Battle Revolution intro.png), and apply Photoshop to images. This isn’t all. This is what I have found on MarioWiki. Just thought I let you know and keep an eye out for that and handle any images uploaded by him to the Bulbapedia Archives and handle his images appropriately. — Wildgoosespeeder ( talk) 04:44, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

My apologies for not responding to your message sooner. electricity physics khan academy As Brandondorf9999 hasn’t contributed to Bulbagarden Archives in over one year, I don’t really think any action is required at this time. However if he does upload any problem images in the future, myself or the other staff will deal with him at that time. — Zesty Cactus 02:03, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Action against him wasn’t what I was looking for (although it would be nice because he has created sockpuppets on MarioWiki to evade a ban). The main action I was looking for is close examination of his uploads, especially screenshots of games. I am not overly familiar with the Pokémon games he has uploaded screenshots for, but if anything is out of place, just tag images with {{bad image}}. — Wildgoosespeeder ( talk) 00:00, 8 July 2016 (UTC) GIFs that should be tagged?

Not necessarily. I did go through them all and tag the ones that could stand to be converted. I ignored the "IC" ones because I’m not sure what the deal with them is and some of them are used on a lot of pages. gas x strips ingredients I also ignored "Bulbagarden Forums logo 2003.gif" since it’s a historic site logo so I figured it’s better off the way it originally is (and that if Kogoro wanted it uploaded in a different format, she would have done so herself when she uploaded it only last year). Similarly, I ignored "EvklAvatar.gif" since it’s a site-related icon that was uploaded for use in a Bulbanews article from 2007 so I think it can probably be ignored. I tagged or deleted the rest (I actually discovered a few of those images weren’t being used anyway so there’s no point in converting them lol). — Zesty Cactus 04:13, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

The IC images are sprites found in Generation III and Generation IV games for types, contest conditions, or damage category (IV only). Strangely, these GIFs are not being used on main articles. I traced the GIF usage to Template:Ic so editing should be rather easy when a properly ripped PNG is available. Can those GIFs be reconsidered for {{gif}}? — Wildgoosespeeder ( talk) 19:55, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Sorry for butting into the conversation but, I do have png replacements for the IC images (if we want to switch them over). If we do switch them over, I am willing to go and switch all the uses over that are not called on be the Template:Ic. Also, "WailmerPromo.gif" did have a jpg version that was deleted that can be restored to replace it. Adamws ( talk) 20:24, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

The impression Bulbapedia gives me is that the Editorial Board doesn’t want JPEGs at all. gas bloating after eating The JPEG that was deleted would be eligible for {{jpg}} if restored, unless the policy towards JPEGs are more relaxed compared to GIF, as PNG replaces everything with 24-bit color + alpha channel and better compression algorithms compared to GIF being limited to 8-bit color + transparency only (even the unofficial APNG format replaces what GIF can do officially). — Wildgoosespeeder ( talk) 00:16, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Generally, JPEG images are unfavourable because they lose image quality easily and also the PNGs generally show up in thumbnails better. I seem to recall Maverick Nate telling me a while back that card images should be uploaded as JPEG anyway though. A cursory glance at recent TCG sets shows that they are still being uploaded as .jpg, so maybe it would be best to contact him about that. Regardless, I dunno what the heck happened with this Wailmer card but the JPG would probably be better than the GIF in either case. As for the IC images, it turns out they’ve never been converted to PNGs since it wouldn’t really make a difference in image quality (I guess they don’t use many colours if they’re sprites from the games). Since the difference in image quality is basically nil, it’s not really worth the use of time and server resources to fix. I guess if they were being uploaded today, they probably would be PNG, but they’re already there, so it can be ignored at this time. — Zesty Cactus 04:51, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

JPEG is lossy while PNG is lossless. Converting from JPEG to PNG directly doesn’t fix the quality issue but rather bloats file size. gas 89 PNG is the easiest to work with because no compounding lossy compression with each save to edit. The direct conversion from GIF to PNG doesn’t do anything as well but the compression is better if it were in PNG (after pngout or something has been applied to the PNG). If the sprites or screenshots were taken from a raw (uncompressed) source (such as bitmap), all colors would be preserved if saved in PNG and not GIF. Adamws says he’s got the PNG replacements. Should someone else take care of pages protected from edits by regular users? — Wildgoosespeeder ( talk) 05:24, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
