It has been requested that this article be rewritten to be comprehensible to the human race.

A self-proclaimed file czar, but a world-proclaimed annoyance.

Bloopers - Super Mario Sticker.gif

but what does that mean? I make sure all images use lowercase extensions, like png over PNG or jpg over JPG. I also make sure the files are in english, and are simple to understand. I do mess up a lot though so if I do mess up, or you just don't like me, please yell at me in the talk page because I am easily motivated by fear.

If you see me working on a game below, please do not change any of that game's files for capitalization or naming. There's plenty of other games to do, and it makes my organization all wonky.

Terminology

Caps = Capitalization

Unab = Unabbreviated (how ironic)

FNC = File Name Change - I usually use this on any changed talk pages

RFC = Renamed for Consistency - Like files, such as character icons, should be similarly named

TR = Technical Rename - removing or changing things like punctuation, unnecessary numbers, or files with weird issues in them. Files should have no punctuation other than a sparingly used hyphen. Unlike Supermariofan67, I include the removal of underscores as a TR.

RFA= Renamed for Accuracy - Spelling errors, wrong names, poor formatting, or lack of specified game. More-specific-to-the-image naming. This is about 85% of when the main file name is changed.

NCR = Naming Conflict Rename - Files that are similarly named that are renamed to avoid confusing the two. Hypothetical examples: Wario World.png vs. Wario World.PNG, or Luigi1.png vs. Luigi 1.png

RTE = Rename To English

RIF = Removed Image:/File: - Using <Gallery> means you don't need to use "Image:" (which shouldn't really be used anyway) or "File:". If I'm passing through a gallery, I'll try to remove any I see. It may also mean changing Image: to File: for single images.

AURS = Americanizing, Unsnarking, Renaming, Strikers - Used exclusively for Super Mario Strikers and Mario Strikers Charged. These files mostly had inconsistent naming (many using the PAL name), inappropriate naming (a yoshi file as Ugly Green Frog), renaming because some files are incorrectly named, and strikers for...well...you know. A simple way to think of this is "fixing literally everything wrong with it"

UPI = Unused Personal Image

Notes

Address one of these notes/issues? Tell me on my talk page or sandbox.

  • My edit count (by thousands): 12.3 - 20:37, July 11, 2019 (EDT)
  • This page is a fantastic start for people that want to see all the files of 1 game to update, but it would be great if we did it again since RAP sorta vanished from all known existence. - 10:50, June 23, 2019 (EDT)
  • Special:UnusedFiles has a lot of similarly related files in it. They may have use in a page still. There's also a lot of them. - 19:54, July 6, 2019 (EDT)
  • I plan to make consistent and uniform SMG/SMG2 images with MSC. - 21:56, July 6, 2019 (EDT)
  • Supermariofan67 does a lot of similar work to myself. - 21:56, July 6, 2019 (EDT)

Mario Sports Superstars

  • Mario Sports Superstars should probably have subcategories per sport in the images category. - 22:44, June 19, 2019 (EDT)

Super Mario Galaxy / Super Mario Galaxy 2

Mario Party 2

  • Needs an image quality overhaul - 19:54, July 6, 2019 (EDT)

Captain Toad Treasure Tracker

  • Needs an image quality overhaul. - 19:54, July 6, 2019 (EDT)

Wario World

Mario Party 8

Super Mario Strikers / Mario Strikers Charged

  • These files suck. There's a lot of naming going on but a definite thing to be sure of is that all files use the US version unless the file literally has the word football in the image. If I miss some, please change them. - 18:27, July 2, 2019 (EDT)
  • Just about every file for this game that isn't a model needs a good ol' re-upload to it. - 18:27, July 2, 2019 (EDT)
  • The RAP Test for this game has a majority of its files under Mario Strikers Charged, probably because it's the newer game. Since most of the image and files apply to both, it is not a large deal. This does mean that MSC probably could use a lot of files for itself instead of using Super Strikers. - 13:19, July 4, 2019 (EDT)
  • My method of attack is normal scan of PNG/bad naming for Super-->normal scan for Charged-->look at gallery sections in the gallery pages to fine tune everything to be consistent. It may be put on hold until Odyssey is complete. - 19:54, July 6, 2019 (EDT)

How I, and you too, can approach renaming files

The title of this article is handwritten in cursive, but it is very sloppy. If a print-handwritten title from a sloppish-cursive source is found, the article should be corrected to disguise the title.

I will use the file File:Trig Demonstration Example File.png as an example in this demonstration.

When naming a file, aim for the three big 'C's: Consistency, Clarity, and Capitalization. If all the files are icons in the format Game-Character-Pose, changing a file should try and change to this format. Clarity means that files should have sensible names for what is described, while capitalization is making absolutely sure the file extension (png, gif, jpg, ogg) is lowercase. I also highly discourage the use of any punctuation in files besides hyphens and the single period for the file extension.

I personally try to format as "Game Name Abbreviation-Character/Location-Type.extension", with any more specific information being added last. This is up to the name changer/uploader, however. For example, a screenshot of a goomba in Super Mario Bros. would be written as SMB Goomba Screenshot.extension. Usually most images (in terms of type) can be boiled down to Artwork, Icon, Screenshot, and Model/Render.

The way I approach renaming a file is by first having the File page open.

I personally open all the pages it is both used on and pages I can edit in a new tab, but you may opt into windows or your own method instead.

Move the file to the appropriate name.

Generally speaking, all pages that start with "User:" , "Shroom", or "Talk" cannot be edited, but regular pages, pages listed with "Gallery:", and pages listed with "User talk:" (including archives) can be edited.

Most importantly to change is the regular pages and galleries. Locate the image and where it is used (sometimes it may be used more than once) and replace it. I generally find it helpful to use copy and pasting here.

If you decide to preserve the user talk pages as well, open them up and do the same replacement if possible. Some user talk pages are protected, meaning the images are unable to be replaced. This is okay. This stuff happens. Not all images last forever, and that is why it is okay User pages don't need attention. If you can replace any images, edit ONLY the file name and nothing else. Indicate in the summary very clearly why a talk page or archive was edited. I use the term FNC, file name change, but as long as people understand it is acceptable.

Once all pages have been addressed, go to the created redirect and mark it with the {{delete}} tag. Indicate a reason for deletion (FNC would likely be understood here too). After this, check the page "What Links Here" on the left side under "Tools". This is helpful for two reasons: The first is to make sure you didn't miss anything! The second is to see if any linked but undisplayed files are used. Files can be listed with a colon before File is written File:Trig Demonstration Example File.png or also with alternate text. If this usage can be replaced, it should be as well. Most frequently, game files may be located in One of the RAP tests, such as this one (see this for more information).

The file File:Trig Demonstration Example File.png links to a variety of pages to demonstrate what has been listed above.

At this point, you are done. Should you have any questions, comments, concerns, quantums, or theorems, please ask away on my talk page. Happy editing.
