Welcome to the new Pokémon Anime Caption the Screenshot thread! Us here on the Pokémon Animé staff decided that it was a good time to restart the thread with some new rules to make captioning a swifter and easier thing to do. Here you may post screenshots of animation and give them a witty or funny caption. Screenshots of openings, endings, episodes, movies, shorts, specials, etc are all allowed. Posters and other media that don't make part of the animation are not allowed.
- Our first new rule is that we ask users not to post more than three screenshots in a row, three captions in a row, or a combination that totals to more than three. A lot of the time only certain screenshots get captioned out of a batch posted and so the rest took up space unnecessarily. This made loading the page take longer, especially for those on mobile devices and those with slower connection, and ultimately made the process of captioning take longer than it should be. Thus we hope this rule will help you guys to caption screenshots must faster.
- The second rule is that any screenshot that is larger than 700 pixels wide or 700 pixels long should be under a [spoiler] tag. Doing so helps those with smaller screen resolutions and means that the page will not be stretched for those who do not want it to be stretched. We also ask that a combination of screenshots that in total exceed the above limits should all be under a spoiler tag as well.
This is how large 700 x 700 pixels is:
- The third rule is that hotlinking to any other sites is forbidden, especially from filb.de. This means that users are not allowed to copy and paste image locations from places like filb, serebii, or any other websites that displays screenshots. Instead, we encourage the use of image hosting sites like Photobucket, ImageShack, or tinypic.
- And finally, our fourth rule is that guessing references to captions should be kept to VMs and PMs. Posts that only contained guesses were clogging up the previous thread and along with picture of cookies, were spammish. Users who post guesses to references or cookie pictures will receive Pointless Post infractions. However if users are captioning a post with a reference, they may state what the reference is within their post so that others don't have to guess.
So with that all done, have fun captioning!
