    Why are the head images for the Best Wishes series protected? On the summary section for them starting with the eleventh episode (excluding the ones that didn't get dubbed), the codename is listed instead of their dub name.

    An example would be the head image of BW013. On the summary section, it says BW013 instead of Minccino-Neat and Tidy! (the mistake didn't occur under the licensing).

    Images think that they are duplicates of themselves. This seems to have been caused by the server restructure.

    Images in the archives are disappearing.

    I had this yesterday. Hard refresh the page (click the clock) and it should be okay. Worked for me, at least.

    What is going on here?

    Tried to upload a new version of the file, which looks like this, and all it did was stretch out the old file. Any ideas? I've always had issues with the Archives, and I'm never sure if it's something I'm doing or if the system just lags because it's really, really slow and out-of-date.

    Yes, by the way, I do have permission to use that logo from the site's owner.

    Looks fine to me now.

    Normally that's just a caching issue, where it loads the old image from the cache but displays it with the new image dimensions. It should clear up if you purge the image cache. And if that doesn't work, try purging your browser's cache. One of the two should fix it.

    On the recent changes, more than five users in a row were creating spam advertisements (they got blocked afterwards and those pages were deleted afterwards). Why was this constantly happening and where did they come from?

    Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do about that from our end - the images are being blocked by your browser, after they get to your computer. You'll need to talk to whoever has the administrator password for your computer and see if they'll add these sites to the allowed list.

    Hey guys, before I start changing all the Orre region articles so the trainer lists contain Colo/XD Menu sprites, could I ask where we are getting them?

    Is this the right place to ask why I cannot login to the archives using my bulbapedia login?

    You can't?
    It should work just fine, although your userspace content does not carry over from Bulbapedia.
    Aside from that, if you can't upload over other images, you have to upload some pictures of your own first.
    That's as far as I can help, maybe one of the admins can chip in.

    Try following this link while logged in on Bulbapedia: Login unification status - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

    That link can be found in the preferences on all three bulbawikis.

    Hello all I just wanted to clarify something for all the TCG sections on bulbapedia. For all of the new foil cards please use the official terms... It isn't "pinstripe foil" it's actually called tinsel foil. The foil with all of the little triangles on it is called cracked ice.
