    Default Suggestions, ideas, and problems

    Anything wrong with the Archives? We may as well have a thread for this too.

    I'm still trying to determine what art are from what games, but our old art (e.g. File:001Bulbasaur RG.png) has some issues. For example, the Bulbasaur is in fact not from Red and Green. Scroll down to the bottom of this page. It's not the same. It seems that Ken Sugimori drew new art for RB or something.

    Or, is that even Sugimori art at all? Close up, it doesn't look Sugimori. However, that may just have been his old style.

    Which ever way it is, there's something wrong with the categorization and/or naming.

    So what was decided about back sprites? Are we using the sprite from the latest game of the generation?

    Edit: On an unrelated note, sometimes the apng's I upload that are bigger than 80x80, are scaled down to 80x80 on the pokemon's page, creating an ugly blur. Though this happens rarely, its still a problem. I can see it on Pidgeot's platinum sprite and on Arbok's shiny platinum sprite.

    Good idea for a MediaWiki extension: GlobalUsage.

    Makes moving/deleting images so much better.

    Yeah, I suggested this a while back. Would love to hear how this idea's doing.

    This is what I was looking for a few days back. I agree, that this would come in real handy and make our work much easier.

    If TTE, Nate or Zhen are reading this, then I'm in support. As long as installing it won't crash the servers for too long.

    I don't like how they say "wiki farm". It could work just as well on a four-way link on specialized wikis like we have, with DeadRPGwiki, BP, and BN.

    Though... hmmm... While NIWA isn't exactly a wiki farm, and we definitely don't wanna be... but this may be a useful thing for us there.

    They said that it is useful for wiki farms. Not that it has to be used for them.

    Useful for wiki farms implies enough.

    WIKIA SUCKS.

    It's still useful for our conglomerate of wikis.

    So, I just noticed something weird... I never saw this until recently, but on the top of every Archives page, it says No image is to be uploaded over the maximum resolution size of 1080 by 1080 pixels. What about existing images, though? There are some actual size game maps that are larger than this. Is this a problem? Here's an example of one that's 1280x1280 pixels, uploaded by none other than TTEchidna himself:

    http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:Route_124.png

    So... yeah. Does this rule apply only to future images, or will it be applied retroactively to existing ones as well? (I personally hope the former, or at least raise the limit to 1280x1280, as maps lose detail, look ugly, and actually have their filesize increased (due to a lot more colors from filtering) if they're reduced in size.)

    Right now we're discussing raising the limits, but for now and all your future uploads I would say you should try to stay below that limit.
