Thanks again, and have fun editing! -- Tulipclaymore (Talk) 19:02, March 31, 2013

Re: Images

Does it give you any specific error or message when you try to upload them? At what point does it stop working? It could be an issue with your computer or Internet connection. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 18:34, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

Spyro1996 (talk) 22:25, April 4, 2013 (UTC)It just says premision error.Spyro1996 (talk) 22:25, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

Descriptive file names

When uploading images to this wiki, could you give them descriptive file names. Fanmade content should have the prefix 'FANMADE' in the name. A useful blog found here can give you a rundown on what is expected of files when they are uploaded to the wiki. It really helps save unnecessary time for the contributors who have to rename the images. If you have any questions about anything, feel free to ask me about it.

Be wary that continuing to not upload properly named images may lead to blocks. -- Ozuzanna (Talk) 23:05, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

About your images

The last images you have uploaded are of poor quality and they are in jpg. The wiki prefers images in png format and in standard 1280x720 resolution. Also when adding pictures, remember to add categories.

Yours truly:  Federal_Republic_of_Ocredan.pngOcredan Ocredanian_Flag1.png 09:07, April 5, 2013 (UTC)

Reminder

Please give images you upload to the wiki descriptive names. -- Ozuzanna (Talk) 13:33, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Notice

You have been blocked for continuing to ignore FW:DN numerous times. -- Ozuzanna (Talk) 19:55, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

You have been blocked for continuing to ignore FW:DN even more. -- Ozuzanna (Talk) 19:21, April 30, 2013 (UTC)

Comics images

In addition to descriptive names, if you want to contribute images to the comics gallery, you should try harder to make sure they are consistent with other images. After you uploaded the images, the following was done: 1) Categories were added. 2) The images were given descriptive names consistent with the naming of other images (anything is better than "1.JPG"). 3) Better/larger versions of the images were uploaded (found at the retailers' pages). 4) Captions were placed in the gallery to state what the images were (even more important if they are not named descriptively). Please ask me or another admin if you have questions about editing or how the wiki works. Also, when editing galleries, try to add images all at once rather than making a ton of edits only adding one image at once. Thanks, ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 01:35, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

File names

Reminder again about file names. Several junk names have made it through. You've been blocked for this before, so you should be careful. EDIT: just saw you reuploaded a couple of them, I guess that works, but it would be better if they were descriptive to begin with. Renaming them on your computer should help. Thanks, ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:07, July 3, 2013 (UTC)  

KK,sorry about that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Spyro1996 (talkcontribs) 15:04, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi

I would be more than happy to help out. Just tell me what you need and I'll handle it.   Federal_Republic_of_Ocredan.pngOcredan Ocredanian_Flag1.png 08:05, July 4, 2013 (UTC) Spyro1996 (talk) 14:52, July 4, 2013 (UTC) Awesome!!! Ok,so i would like a HD image of king sombra's castle in the flashback scene on the Crystal empire part 1. And i would also Love one of when all the crystal ponies are bowing and king Sombra is standing atop of the crystal shouting "No! Stop!" Think you could manage that?


Done.  Here and Here. I hope these will do =).  Federal_Republic_of_Ocredan.pngOcredan Ocredanian_Flag1.png 20:23, July 6, 2013 (UTC) 

Spyro1996 (talk) 20:36, July 6, 2013 (UTC)Oh my gosh!! Thanks you,those look great! ^_^ How do you get those HD pictures?

Image details

Please include a source (at least a link) to where you get images that are not show screenshots ("EqD" doesn't count unless it is the original source of the image), and when adding them to galleries it is helpful to add a caption explaining what the image actually is. (Edit: categorizing the images would also be helpful.) Thanks, ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 00:19 (E 00:34), July 16, 2013 (UTC)

If you could also categorize the images you upload, it'd be really helpful. On the image's file page (File:Power Ponies Go title screen.png, for example), scroll down to "Categories", click "Add category", and add the appropriate image categories (for example, Category:Twilight Sparkle images, Category:Spike images, or Category:Mane-iac images). (You can even add categories to images as you upload them; just click "More options" on the image upload pop-up and enter the categories in the caption text box). Thanks! furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 16:22, July 11, 2014 (UTC)
Your mass image uploading would be a bit more tolerable if you'd categorize them in the appropriate image categories. Look back at some of the images you've uploaded and see how I've categorized them to get an idea for it. If you continue to upload multiple images at a time without categorizing them, you may be blocked. Thank you. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 20:46, August 3, 2014 (UTC)
Spyro1996 (talk) 23:26, August 6, 2014 (UTC) Ok. I've been trying to work on that with the last few images I've uploaded.Spyro1996 (talk) 23:26, August 6, 2014 (UTC)

Descriptive file names

Please remember to use descriptive file names. I'm assuming the image you uploaded is the EG-themed loading screen from the mobile game.  Steph physarum (talk) CastleCreator_Octavia.png 21:54, August 26, 2013 (UTC)

Whoops. Sorry about that. Yes that was my image,thanks for renaming it. Spyro1996 (talk) 22:39, August 26, 2013 (UTC)
No problem. In the future, adding categories to identify the image would also be super helpful (see that image for examples).  Steph physarum (talk) CastleCreator_Octavia.png 22:43, August 26, 2013 (UTC)Spyro1996 (talk) 22:51, August 26, 2013 (UTC) Okie dokie. I'll try my best. :)

RE: Removing images from pages

Hi, Spyro1996. Please do not remove images from galleries that do not break any policies or rules. Thanks! – Ozuzanna 19:21, September 11, 2013 (UTC) 

Spyro1996 (talk) 20:08, September 11, 2013 (UTC)But the images are out of order! Some of them don't even have prper names! 0.o I'm just trying to help the wiki out! Spyro1996 (talk) 20:08, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
You can rearrange the images instead of removing them, and the badly named ones won't matter for now, just put {{file rename}} on said images with the new name and someone will rename. – Ozuzanna 20:19, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Spyro1996 (talk) 20:22, September 11, 2013 (UTC)but listen. There's TWO of the same image on crystal empire part one's page! The last image is already there,just out of order! And TWO o f the photo's on that crysta lempire part 2 are MY images  i uploaded anyways! Sorry if i'm coming off as i little angry,long day.Spyro1996 (talk) 20:22, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Even if they are yours, doesn't mean you can't remove them.--Daipenmon (talk) 21:01, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Spyro1996 (talk) 21:03, September 11, 2013 (UTC)What about my first complaint?Spyro1996 (talk) 21:03, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
What about it? I addressed it in my response to you before. – Ozuzanna 21:15, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Spyro1996 (talk) 21:20, September 11, 2013 (UTC) there....is...two..of....the...same...picture.Spyro1996 (talk) 21:20, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Then you should go to the [less quality] duplicate image and tag it with {{delete|link to better image}} and it will be taken care of. – Ozuzanna 21:23, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Spyro1996 (talk) 21:24, September 11, 2013 (UTC)I don't know how...;_;

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
It's easy just go to the duplicate image and add {{delete}} or tell an admin (such as me, with the link) as well as a link to the better one and they should be able to sort it out. – Ozuzanna 21:32, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

Spyro1996 (talk) 23:13, September 11, 2013 (UTC) Thanks but...it's just not worth it at this point. I just wanted some accuricy. But you guys do whatever you want.Spyro1996 (talk) 23:13, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

Again you are removing images from Sombra's gallery.--Daipenmon (talk) 23:38, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Spyro1996 (talk) 23:41, September 11, 2013 (UTC) Now it's perfect! Please no one touch it!Spyro1996 (talk) 23:41, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

You have been blocked for breaching FW:DN and ignoring advice to use {{file rename}} for renaming a file. – Ozuzanna 19:56, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

Spyro1996 (talk) 22:48, October 23, 2013 (UTC) Yeah,removing my OWN photo. To replace it with a BETTER one. Whoop-dee-doo.Spyro1996 (talk) 22:48, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

Tip for signatures

Hi Spyro! If it's not too much trouble, could you please sign only at the end of the message? It makes the message easier to read and makes the page less cluttered. Thanks. Steph physarum (talk)V6OlmCb.png 00:33, October 24, 2013 (UTC)

Duplicate files

Hi Spyro1996, just letting you know that the Discord images you keep uploading already exist here and here. Additionally, .png files are preferred over .jpg files, and if you feel your version is higher quality, you can always use the "replace" option found in the edit drop-down menu. Thanks, TheUltimateH4M Talk 19:13, November 30, 2013 (UTC)

Fanmade images

Please ensure that the FANMADE text is preceding the rest of the name. B0lGGoQ.gifOz   20:52, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Unused files/selective editing

I can't help but notice you upload images of characters (specifically antagonists) simply to add them to those characters' gallery pages. If they're also from an episode, a software game, a comic, etc., they should be added to those corresponding galleries as well. Being this selective about your gallery additions only means other users pick up your slack.

In addition, please don't upload files that go unused. As a rule of thumb, a file should not be uploaded if you don't intend to add it to any pages. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 16:13, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

A reminder: don't just add images to character galleries. If they're from a certain episode, game, or comic, they should at the very least be added to those galleries too. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 06:09, March 3, 2015 (UTC)
You're still being selective with your editing -- uploading images of antagonists and only adding them to those characters' gallery pages. Once again, if an image is from an episode, game, or comic (or in this case, the MLP collectible card game), it should also be added to those galleries too (such as what I've done here).
Your additions of new images is welcome, but you shouldn't leave a task half-finished for other users to finish for you. Thank you. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 01:09, March 27, 2015 (UTC)
Spyro1996 (talk) 01:30, March 27, 2015 (UTC) I'm sorry, I've honestly been trying hard lately to do better and not selective edit. I just made a slip up today. Thank you for being patient with me and not terminating or blocking my account for my missteps. Also thanks for adding the image to it's galleries.Spyro1996 (talk) 01:30, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

Spyro, your image additions are still lacking a little in quality and effort. Don't just add images for the sake of adding them. Double-check your work and spelling. Try to keep proper and consistent gallery organization. Toy images belong in Category:Toy images, not Category:Toys. I realize I'm being picky, but I'm only trying to help you make as few mistakes as possible. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 23:31, May 2, 2015 (UTC)

Category:Merchandise images is a parent category; images don't belong in it. Images of merchandise should be added to one of its subcategories, like toy images, home media images, or -- if none of the other subcategories apply -- other merchandise images. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 01:25, May 5, 2015 (UTC)

Spyro1996, please stop being so selective with your image uploading. After monitoring your editing for some time, I've come to the conclusion that you only upload images if they contain MLP villains. As a result, you end up paying little mind to file naming, gallery organization and captioning, file quality, and/or categorization. This gets especially out of hand when you upload files depicting a lot of characters.
Making a lot of edits at one time is discouraged unless you have a bot flag on your account. Otherwise, you risk overwhelming Special:WikiActivity and Special:Recentchanges. Thank you. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 18:56, January 20, 2016 (UTC)
Spyro1996 (talk) 19:14, January 20, 2016 (UTC) I do not only upload images that contain MLP villains, although I can understand how you would come to that conclusion, since it is one of my more prominent subjects I upload, it's not all I do. (My comic cover photos I uploaded recently for example) However I'm trying to become less selective with my image uploading, although I do admit that my excitment for uploading some images clouds my better judgment. I can't stress enough that I really do try to upload the highest quality images I can find, and I'm really sorry that it's come across that i've been not putting forth my best efforts. Spyro1996 (talk) 19:14, January 20, 2016 (UTC)
I understand, and I appreciate the effort. I do, however, want to point a couple of other things:
  • The Wiki does usually focus on files in .PNG format, but if an image -- usually a non-screenshot image -- is in .JPG format by default, there's no need to convert it to .PNG or upscale it to a higher resolution. A .jpg that's 0.5mb to 1mb in size would be preferable to a .png that's 3mb in size.
  • Try to observe consistent file naming and sourcing. (For example, your recent comic cover uploads.) Most, if not all, comic images should be linked to their original sources on the file page.
I apologize if I misread your intentions and for any inconvenience I may have caused. Thanks again. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 19:31, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

Again, Category:Merchandise images is a parent category; images should not be added to it. Images of the MLP card game belong in Category:Other merchandise images. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 20:33, May 27, 2016 (UTC)

Spyro, please be more mindful of your file naming and gallery formatting. Don't put a space between the end of the file name and the file extension. Your style of editing is still leaving preventable mistakes for other users to clean up after. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 14:13, June 24, 2016 (UTC)

Spyro1996 (talk) 15:05, June 24, 2016 (UTC) Yeah, for sure. Sorry about that.

You're still doing it. Do you know that, when you're uploading a file, you can freely adjust the file name by clicking More options on the "Upload a photo to the wiki" pop-up window? Try naming your uploads properly that way. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 22:45, July 11, 2017 (UTC) 
I noticed as soon as I finished editing those last two photos. I did not know that was how to change the file name. Sorry for the inconvenience. Spyro1996 (talk) 22:48, July 11, 2017 (UTC)

Image source

Please provide a source for these images. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 04:58, October 14, 2015 (UTC)

Spyro1996 (talk) 04:49, October 22, 2015 (UTC) How do I add the source? I feel like I know this but I haven't paid much attention to this place in a while. Sorry for the inconvenience. I just added two more images that are from the same book. (The art of Equestria) so I'll source those too once I know how. Spyro1996 (talk) 04:49, October 22, 2015 (UTC)

Usually indicating the source in the filename itself is enough. Otherwise, go to the file page, click "Edit", and state the source in the edit window. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 18:25, October 22, 2015 (UTC)
When the source is a book, it can be helpful to include the page number in the description. For online sources, a link is usually sufficient. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 18:31, October 22, 2015 (UTC)

Please refrain from uploading too many images from The Art of Equestria. I've allowed a few exceptions, but image uploads from book merchandise should be mostly limited to what is released in official previews. Thank you. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 21:06, May 8, 2016 (UTC)

Spyro1996 (talk) 21:09, May 8, 2016 (UTC) That last image was just meant to be used on a blog I was working on, But ok.

In that case, I recommend uploading the image to http://imgur.com and adding it to your blog with the {{R}} template. See Forum:The wiki is not an image hosting medium for more info. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 21:21, May 8, 2016 (UTC)
Once again, please link comic images to their original source(s).

Gallery editing

http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Friendship_Express/Gallery?diff=1762546&oldid=1762544

Use the Wiki Source Editor ("Source" tab in the upper-right corner of the editing window). It'll give you freer control over the page's text code and make fewer errors. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 14:27, October 5, 2016 (UTC)

Ahoy

Hey Spyro, wasn't sure whether it was better to respond on my on talk page or here, but just so you know I left a reply to your earlier message.Fluffbrain (talk) 07:35, February 1, 2017 (UTC)

Character galleries

I know filling gallery pages for MLP villains is a thing for you, Spyro1996, but you don't need to be responsible for images that other users uploaded. Character galleries will be updated with new screenshots so that the Special:WikiActivity page doesn't get crowded. Thank you. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 03:21, January 13, 2018 (UTC)

Sure thing. My apologies.Spyro1996 (talk) 22:51, January 13, 2018 (UTC)

A request

Hey Spyro1996, how are things? I wanted to ask you if it's okay if I use your proposal for the Sombra from the season nine premier being the one from the season five finale in a blog post I'm working on. I'm going to credit you with the idea, of course, but I wanted to make sure you were cool with it.--Kilmarnock228 (talk) 21:27, June 22, 2019 (UTC)

Hey! Things have been going well, thank you for asking. Of course! Go right ahead. Can't wait to see your blog! Spyro1996 (talk) 05:41, June 23, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks! Hope you like it.--Kilmarnock228 (talk) 08:03, June 23, 2019 (UTC)
