    Default Renaming Colosseum/XD Sprites

    Should the box sprites and menu sprites be renamed, to keep them consistant with the other game sprites?
    For example:

    File:Box Colo 197.png would become File:Spr 3x 197.png

    File:Menu Colo 197.png would become File:Spr b 3x 197.png


    For reference, the Colosseum/XD box sprites are found here:

    and the shiny ones here:

    Menu sprites here:

    and shiny ones here:

    I think the current naming convention is actually pretty good. And I don't see why the menu sprites would use the 'b' for backsprites. If anything, the categories Category:Colosseum/XD box sprites and Category:Colosseum/XD shiny box sprites need renaming so that they don't have the ugly slash in there.

    Category:Colosseum and XD box sprites does look better.

    I agree, though should they be renamed Category:Colosseum and XD box sprites, or just Category:Colosseum box sprites? As the menu sprites category is Category:Colosseum menu sprites, though it could be renamed Category:Colosseum and XD menu sprites.

    For reference, my original idea of renaming the sprites was because I'm not sure if they work with the sprite templates.

    The box sprites are actually from both games while the menu sprites differ in both.

    The differences are minimal, the only one being that the Colosseum ones are square, and the XD ones are round. I'm pretty sure that except the shape, the sprites themselves are the same.

    Bonsly, Shadow Lugia and the other 3 Deoxys forms are the only Pokemon with sprites only in XD. I don't think it would be worth having seperate categories for Colosseum sprites and XD sprites or uploading both versions of the sprites.

    If we're only going to have one set it should be the XD ones since they it would look weird to have 5 out of place.

    I suppose they could be replaced with the XD sprites. However, I've just noticed this extremely inconvenient notice on the Archives:

    Editing is currently locked to staff only, due to the release of Pokémon Black and White.
    Please keep deletions and moving to a minimum and focus on Generation V for the time being. Sorry for the inconvenience.
    Fuck knows how long this is going to last for. I don't know if uploading is locked, but at the same time, it would probably be best to wait until all the restrictions are lifted, unless an Admin says otherwise.

    Uploading is locked to non-staff users. There has been massive server strain lately. Once the restrictions have been lifted, we'll re-evaluate this problem.
