Uploads[edit]

Hello, 0blivion. Good job on your recent uploads, but when uploading files, keep in mind that you must use the proper license. A full list of licenses can be found at Category:File copyright tags, but the following are more common:

  • {{promo-photo}} - Used for a photo meant for promotional material.
  • {{art}} - Used for artwork of something that is not a character.
  • {{comic-scene}} - Used for scans of a comic.
  • {{comic-cover}} - Used for covers of comic books.
  • {{tv-screenshot}} - Used for screenshots of television shows.
  • {{film-screenshot}} - Used for screenshots of movies.
  • {{video-screenshot}} - Used for other screenshots, such as those from YouTube.

When uploading, select the license from the drop-down box below the summary text box, or add the license manually after uploading or if you're using the upload function from the text editor. For example, artwork of Mario would use {{character-artwork}}.

Please consider the above information before uploading more files. Don't include multiple copyright templates, choose the one that you feel best fits the image. If you continue uploading files without licensing them correctly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

Hello, 0blivion. Good job on your recent uploads, but when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly categorize the file. It is simple to learn how to correctly do so. Just search for the correct category by starting with the following groups:

Images Audio/Video Files

When uploading, copy the full title of the category with square brackets, and insert it into the summary text box (below the {{aboutfile}} template), replacing the {{uncategorized}} template entirely. (If you're using the upload function from the text editor, simply add the category link to the description.) For example, files related to the game Super Mario World would use:

[[Category:Super Mario World Images]]
or
[[Category:Super Mario World Media Files]]

Please consider the above information before uploading more files. Keep in mind some files can belong to multiple categories. Don't put images into media categories and vice versa. If you continue uploading files without categorizing them correctly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

File:SM3DWBF Screenshot Cat Plessie Kittens.png appears to be a jpg to png conversion. Can you confirm that's what happened? I see you cropped it, so it's possible you captured as a jpg and then saved as a png. Be aware that this goes against our image policy. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:16, May 15, 2021 (EDT)

Oh, same for File:SM3DWBF Giga Small Mario.png and File:SM3DWBF Giga Super Mario.png. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:22, May 15, 2021 (EDT)
Yes. Almost all of the images I've captured for this game have been cropped, then saved in that format. 0blivion (talk) 09:15, May 15, 2021 (EDT)
I'm not sure if you're going to respond, but I wanted to apologize for not knowing about this earlier. I thought .png was always the preferred format. I also saw that many of the images I tried to replace from Bowser's Fury were in .png format, likely because they were computer screenshots and not game captures. I've already started to upload new screenshots as .jpgs. Is it necessary to change the existing .pngs? As far as I'm aware, doing so manually would be a very large process that I don't think I'm up for right now. 0blivion (talk) 23:43, May 15, 2021 (EDT)
