Mario Kart 7 Screenshot[edit]

File:Toad Circuit MK7 Start.png, did you use HANS for 3DS or some other homebrew application? If so, we don't have too many of those kind of users patrolling MarioWiki. I can only confirm four:

I also use it, as I have a guide about getting high quality screenshots for games, and not just 3DS. Hope to see you contribute more of these HANS-captured images. Make sure to tag JPEGs with {{delete}}. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:17, 16 April 2017 (EDT)

Transcluding vs. Linking[edit]

I see you are inserting the category for images, but using curly brackets instead of regular brackets. {{}} inserts the contents of the page you are referencing (transclusion). [[]] links to the page itself you are referencing. You would want to transclude something if here are repeated or common text patterns, such as templates, like these. Hope this clears up any confusion. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 02:32, 20 April 2017 (EDT)

Replacing Images and Tagging Older Files[edit]

When tagging the image, instead of saying PNG replacement, link to the file instead:

{{delete|[[:File:Island of Peril.png]]}}

Note the colon (:) in front of File:. Without it, it would embed the file. With it, it just links to it. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 01:58, 28 April 2017 (EDT)

Cache issue[edit]

If you want to see the revision change on an image, such as what you've been doing to File:MK7 snapshot4.png, press Ctrl+F5. The cache should refresh and the image will update. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:53, 27 May 2017 (EDT)
