Where should I start?

Ok, so I was thinking of starting to upload some Platinum stuff (from the Fan-Kit) and wondered if I should start there after I've moved all the Unova art to the English names? --S2daam 06:41, 20 February 2011 (EST)

How about dream world art! Or these CMYK pictures? What do we do with those?—★Pika3323 06:50, 20 February 2011 (EST)
Alright, after the Unova images are moved to English names, the next thing to tackle is FANKIT. As for the Dream World art, I'm currently working on getting vector images of all of those (I also need to set up SVG to PNG conversion). As for the CMYK pictures... just leave them as-is. If I get access to Nintendo UK's or Nintendo Europe's press sites (they're seperate), I should get replacements for a number of these.--immewnitythemew 10:15, 20 February 2011 (EST)
I'll start uploading artwork from the HG/SS and Platinum fankits now :D --S2daam 14:29, 20 February 2011 (EST)
Fankits? What's that? According to Photoshop the Pachirisu art is a RGB. Just green not blue.—★Pika3323 14:41, 20 February 2011 (EST)
FANKIT-Nintendo. Basically, Nintendo France takes images from their press site and puts them into categories. Kinda nifty. As for Pachirisu, you are correct; the color scheme shown in image coding is RGB, but as you can tell, the coloring is off. The place I got the image from misconverted.--immewnitythemew 16:51, 20 February 2011 (EST)
By the way.. if your looking for a SVG to PNG converter, theres one here: --S2daam 04:31, 21 February 2011 (EST)
A lot are RGB in the DE-CMYK category. If not all that rest.—★Pika3323 07:14, 21 February 2011 (EST)
NONONONONO!!!! Upload the SVG as-is. I'm working on one that integrates with MediaWiki. I'll check that CMYK issue.--immewnitythemew 09:06, 21 February 2011 (EST)
Ah-Ha! First convert image to CMYK then convert to RGB!—★Pika3323 14:59, 21 February 2011 (EST)
You got it to work?!?!?! Upload test please! EEK!--immewnitythemew 15:48, 21 February 2011 (EST)
How should I say this... Sadly... no. I'll research some more though.—★Pika3323 17:40, 21 February 2011 (EST)
Okay. Figured that.--immewnitythemew 18:10, 21 February 2011 (EST)
How did you do those ones?—★Pika3323 20:34, 21 February 2011 (EST)
The way you were saying in Photoshop: convert to CMYK and back. It works!--immewnitythemew 20:35, 21 February 2011 (EST)
I had my doubts it would work... but pachirisu proves it works.—★Pika3323 20:53, 21 February 2011 (EST)
It's not exact, but close enough until I find non-CMYK of some; I know I have non-CMYK of Pachirisu somewhere.--immewnitythemew 20:57, 21 February 2011 (EST)
How do I name MD3 pokemon artwork? Also what are flights?—★Pika3323 15:23, 22 February 2011 (EST)
(resetting indent) You named them right. Flights are a date categorization technique I used to have in use, but I'm phasing them out; they didn't do any good.--immewnitythemew 19:35, 22 February 2011 (EST)
Can I tinker with the Hiya template and give it a border?—★Pika3323 15:30, 23 February 2011 (EST)
Of course! Also, if you find an image as a PNG, keep it as a PNG.--immewnitythemew 19:34, 23 February 2011 (EST)
For roundy do-dads can we have a template for that instead? Like they do on Bulbapedia?—★Pika3323 06:45, 25 February 2011 (EST)
I'll whip one up one I get the chance.--immewnitythemew 07:27, 25 February 2011 (EST)
The conversion of the False-CMYKs would work if you could encode the colours as CMYK without changing the colours...—★Pika3323 15:24, 25 February 2011 (EST)
Except that'd be a pain in the neck, as we'd have to do that pixel by pixel. Also, I've got a question for you: Were the Regi trio and Plusle/Minun PNG when you got them?--immewnitythemew 16:51, 25 February 2011 (EST)
Yes, same with Eevee. (Uh-Oh... Am I in trouble?)—★Pika3323 17:03, 25 February 2011 (EST)
Pixel by pixel eh? That makes me bring up the question of how "your source" could get the images into CMYK colors yet keep it in RGB color-space.—★Pika3323 16:09, 26 February 2011 (EST)
Exactly. Hopefully I'll gain access to the ultimate source, which should have the images in RGB.--immewnitythemew 18:32, 27 February 2011 (EST)
The ultimate source: Ken Sugimori himself. But will that happen? Not likely.—★Pika3323 07:35, 28 February 2011 (EST)
According to metadata, Nintendo FANKITS uses adobe photoshop CS3 macintosh =D—★Pika3323 17:51, 28 February 2011 (EST)
LOL. Well, I got access to another source, and though files are still downloading, seemingly a number of them are CMYK. Luckily, though, it's full CMYK.--immewnitythemew 19:42, 28 February 2011 (EST)
Yes! Full CMYK! So easy to convert, can't even begin to edit it in photoshop elements without it converting. (Photoshop elements doesn't go very well with CMYK)—★Pika3323 19:47, 28 February 2011 (EST)
By any chance do you have a DropBox account? If so, I can easily share the stuff I need to upload if you feel like converting/uploading. Sorry for not doing much lately; high school sucks. :P.--immewnitythemew 20:04, 28 February 2011 (EST)
No... but you could just E-mail me all the files to convert... —★Pika3323 06:46, 1 March 2011 (EST)
You sure you can handle a 2GB email?--immewnitythemew 07:28, 1 March 2011 (EST)
No... I can't... I think setting up a dropbox account would be easier... Hold on.—★Pika3323 14:54, 1 March 2011 (EST)
So, uh... How do I use this "Dropbox"?—★Pika3323 15:00, 1 March 2011 (EST)
Been away recently, just wondered what needs doing :D, anything that specifically needs uploading? --S2daam 15:14, 1 March 2011 (EST)
Ah, that's where you were... cleaning the hard drive right now (deleting un-needey stuff.) Dungeon 2 artwork needs to be uploaded, Immewnity seems to have found a 2GB ultimate source.—★Pika3323 15:24, 1 March 2011 (EST)
Alright, as for the Dropbox thing, what e-mail did you use? I'll send you the folder invite. For things that need to be done, s2daam, can you also download Dropbox? It'll make image sharing ten times easier.--immewnitythemew 20:06, 1 March 2011 (EST)
The same as for signing up to here. Also any reason I can't get this account e mail confirmned?—★Pika3323 20:29, 1 March 2011 (EST)
Mkay. And, I don't know. I have that optional ATM, so don't worry about it.--immewnitythemew 20:35, 1 March 2011 (EST)
Now if you can't tell, got the message, and files!—★Pika3323 21:03, 1 March 2011 (EST)
Alright! If you don't mind, can you delete the files once they're uploaded? Then I can add more. I'll help if I get done with all this homework. :D --immewnitythemew 21:13, 1 March 2011 (EST)
Delete them in the dropbox file? or the previous versions of the file here?—★Pika3323 21:15, 1 March 2011 (EST)
In the Dropbox. However, don't convert JPG to PNG, just like I didn't want you to do the opposite. No conversion preserves the best info.--immewnitythemew 21:20, 1 March 2011 (EST)
I'm not doing any of that, (just psd to jpg). Also Castelia_city.jpg won't upload (Uploading new file to avoid MIME problems) it's 8000X6000 pixels... HALP!!!—★Pika3323 07:09, 2 March 2011 (EST)
Hmm, if that's not enough Paint.NET doesn't have enough memory to open the world map one! (it's 56X35 inches)—★Pika3323 07:14, 2 March 2011 (EST)
I got Unova to open; try to close all other programs. I'll look into the Castelia City one; do you mind putting the converted Castelia City in the Dropbox?--immewnitythemew 07:21, 2 March 2011 (EST)
Got a dropbox account. I'll start uploading files that are needed -- samm :) talk to me 10:41, 2 March 2011 (EST)
It's uploading, even all programs closed it won't open, but it doesn't matter Paint.NET isn't in my converting process, I just use it to view file size in pixels, World map is 11144X7025 pixels. I think it might be the server rejecting these files because of their size, so says the message of "connection abortion".—★Pika3323 14:58, 2 March 2011 (EST)
Immewnity! Immewnity! The main page is blank! What's wrong?! (Refreshing infinite times, and another browser, doesn't show up.)—★Pika3323 16:56, 2 March 2011 (EST)
For some reason I'm thinking it's this Castelia image.. I'm gonna delete it and see what happens -- samm :) talk to me 16:57, 2 March 2011 (EST)
Yes. It is. So, were gonna have to wait for Immewnity to decide if were to upload the image or not.. -- samm :) talk to me 16:58, 2 March 2011 (EST)
That was it, these files are to big to be stored properly, your server rejected them, so now what, if that file won't work then the world map will destroy the server.—★Pika3323 17:01, 2 March 2011 (EST)
Urghh... I guess we'll hold off on those for the moment; keep them in the Dropbox, though. I'm working on getting a paid host soon which should be good.--immewnitythemew 18:52, 2 March 2011 (EST)
(How do I ask this????) More files (in "the box") please. P.S. your EPS files don't work.—★Pika3323 19:05, 2 March 2011 (EST)
Check again. Also, the eps-es must be a different vector type; I'll figure it out later. Also, lemme clarify a few things: all humans in Black and White are drawn by Ohmura, and use lowercase when non-proper, i.e. "packaging", not "Packaging".--immewnitythemew 20:47, 2 March 2011 (EST)
Got the new art, also all humans except for the main player art is drawn by Ohmura.—★Pika3323 07:15, 3 March 2011 (EST)
Sorry, forgot the exceptions: player characters and Prof. Juniper are Sugimori.--immewnitythemew 09:10, 3 March 2011 (EST)
K, so what about the rest of these files? What are they? (P.S. your server seems to be shutting down.)—★Pika3323 16:03, 3 March 2011 (EST)
Oh and what is(are) your source(s)?—★Pika3323 16:35, 3 March 2011 (EST)
The rest of the files are PSD files, or layered files originating from Photoshop. My only issue with these is that they are layered, meaning that there are images on top of another, so a few could have separate images in them that could be useful separately. As for the server shutdown, it happens; it'll be back up in about five minutes. For sources, I'll send info to you guys soon with them.--immewnitythemew 17:02, 3 March 2011 (EST)
Wait... that wasn't what you are asking. Some of these are MD1 art (#####_pok233monmyster.jpg), the rest are miscellaneous images, mostly originating from Amazon.--immewnitythemew 17:11, 3 March 2011 (EST)
Oh, that's what they were... time to upload!!!—★Pika3323 17:15, 3 March 2011 (EST)
Do I upload them as is? Photoshop says they're damaged. Also you don't like me removing backgrounds.—★Pika3323 17:17, 3 March 2011 (EST)
Hmm... which files specifically does Photoshop say was damaged? As for the backgrounds, if it is, say, a simple gray background or a shadow, remove it. If it is artwork in the background, keep the background, or upload the background separately.--immewnitythemew 21:45, 3 March 2011 (EST)
It's the Pikachu artwork, all backgrounds are grey or blue (so far).—★Pika3323 06:42, 4 March 2011 (EST)
Same with treecko artwork.—★Pika3323 07:08, 4 March 2011 (EST)
Huh. I guess I'll reupload them and see if that works. As for the backgrounds, remove the MD ones.--immewnitythemew 08:15, 4 March 2011 (EST)
I take it we are deleting the files once uploaded, in the Drop Box I mean. -- samm :) talk to me 10:07, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Yes we are, we only can use 2GB, and to keep it under 2GB delete uploaded files in "the box". P.S. You checked your E-Mail recently? Have you seen the "Top secret message"?—★Pika3323 10:25, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Ok, everything looks fine now, all files are fine and there, not forbidden. Can I upload now? (Want to get MD2 art done soon.)—★Pika3323 07:06, 8 March 2011 (EST)
Upload away! :D--immewnitythemew 07:11, 8 March 2011 (EST)


I'm sorry I'm new to wikis so I don't know wether what I am doing is "right". Anyway I'm a Pokémon artwork fan and I would like to know if you could be so kind to share your source for those latest awesome-quality black and white artwork. That would make me so happy! Thank you... and even if you decide not to share (sigh) thank you for your work wich is highly appeciated.

Even I don't know his source and I've been here a while, Immewnity we need guidlines P.S. Sign talk pages with~~~~.—★Pika3323 17:40, 3 March 2011 (EST)
I cannot give you a login, but most of them are from Nintendo UK's and Nintendo America's press sites. Pika3323, I'm drafting an email right now; should be out tomorrow morning. It's going to be a big email.--immewnitythemew 17:58, 3 March 2011 (EST)
Now, about my other question above...—★Pika3323 18:40, 3 March 2011 (EST)
Thank you for your answer. Even if I can't have an access. I wish there was a journalist in my family. Anyway I don't really understand why they don't like free advertising. Thank you again for your work, all of you on this website! Hehemarco 13:46, 4 March 2011 (EST).
By the way, the login for Nintendo America's press site can be found online after a little searching; I just can't provide it to the public.--immewnitythemew 14:16, 4 March 2011 (EST)
Yes, I'm aware of the fact that guests can have access to nintendo America's press site ;) Thank you anyway. Hehemarco 17:41, 4 March 2011 (EST)
I see what you did there... :P Nice!--immewnitythemew 21:49, 4 March 2011 (EST)
If only there was some guest login also for Nintendo Europe's media site... Hehemarco 16:47, 8 March 2011 (EST)
Sadly, no; I don't even have access there.--immewnitythemew 18:03, 8 March 2011 (EST)
Earlier you mentioned the "Nintendo UK press site"... so is that yet another site which you do have access to or you got the images from someone else? Haha sorry if I'm being pedantic. Hehemarco 16:28, 9 March 2011 (EST)
Yes he has access to the "Nintendo UK press site".—★Pika3323 16:37, 9 March 2011 (EST)
Let me clear this up: Nintendo UK press site =/= Nintendo Europe media site.--immewnitythemew 18:19, 9 March 2011 (EST)
Thank you for the link to UK's site. Even if it's only for knowledge. My search abilities were failing me! :) Hehemarco 17:14, 10 March 2011 (EST)
I agree; it took forever to find.--immewnitythemew 17:42, 10 March 2011 (EST)

Kopie files

Why are they there? They take up a lot of place, also most of the time there's a psd file that is identical.—★Pika3323 08:53, 5 March 2011 (EST)

No wait, their a lot smaller files...—★Pika3323 08:57, 5 March 2011 (EST)
The Platinum ones were very strange as set up on the server; there will be a lot of copies/kopies.--immewnitythemew 09:00, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Also there are a lot of files identical to the ones we have right now. Do I have to re-upload them?!—★Pika3323 09:07, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Problem! Problem! You have a full CMYK version of Creation_Trio.jpg in "the box". So I converted it, but it's a smaller file than the existing false CMYK also this converted file has strange settings.—★Pika3323 09:12, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Never mind, there's another copy.—★Pika3323 09:33, 5 March 2011 (EST)
NO! NO! NO! WHY ANOTHER VERSION OF DRAPION ART?!?!?!—★Pika3323 09:58, 5 March 2011 (EST)
If they're identical, don't reupload. I'm just dumping what's on my computer, and I know I have multiples of a lot. What about the Drapion?--immewnitythemew 10:34, 5 March 2011 (EST)
It's already been uploaded, just... never mind.—★Pika3323 10:37, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Will music files find there way here?—★Pika3323 18:36, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Possibly. I gotta check legality stuff there, though.--immewnitythemew 08:45, 6 March 2011 (EST)
I see that TTEchidna from bulbapedia said that nintendo would destroy them for that, but pokemon cries can work.—★Pika3323 08:52, 6 March 2011 (EST)
Even that, though, is questionable; same with sprites. Having either of those means that it was ripped from an illegal ROM.--immewnitythemew 09:30, 6 March 2011 (EST)
And so the only way that you can "legally" get them is with one hell of a microphone! =P—★Pika3323 09:56, 6 March 2011 (EST)
Rotom silhouettes, what are they???—★Pika3323 19:36, 10 March 2011 (EST)
Things to not upload. :P--immewnitythemew 21:17, 12 March 2011 (EST)
If ya got vectors of the original anime series artwork, why put them in "the box"?—★Pika3323 14:17, 17 March 2011 (EDT)

Main Page

What's up with the featured media? It's not there!—★Pika3323 21:04, 9 March 2011 (EST)

I'm working on it; seems like there's still some stuff lingering after the downtime.--immewnitythemew 21:06, 9 March 2011 (EST)
Some page called About linking to a flight category, even though the page doesn't exist.—★Pika3323 21:10, 9 March 2011 (EST)
Ach, that's my fault. It's from an old subpage. Just leave it.--immewnitythemew 22:27, 9 March 2011 (EST)
For moving files isn't there a check box reading "Suppress Redirect" or something, I know it's there for Sr admins.—★Pika3323 06:41, 10 March 2011 (EST)
K, I'm stalling until things fix (by replacing featured Media) Also for MonoBook users (a setting) You'll have to change the art on the side bar.—★Pika3323 15:37, 10 March 2011 (EST)
I know how to change the sitebar; I think I'll just have to do a manual update for both. I'll try a different image, too.--immewnitythemew 17:44, 10 March 2011 (EST)
What style do you use? MonoBook or Vector?—★Pika3323 19:26, 10 March 2011 (EST)
MonoBook. Much easier to use, IMO.--immewnitythemew 20:08, 10 March 2011 (EST)
I use Vector, looks nicer IMO, and yay for the new affiliate!!!—★Pika3323 14:56, 11 March 2011 (EST)
Wait, it's an affiliate right????—★Pika3323 15:02, 11 March 2011 (EST)
Subway boss art is missing, since when was Delibird there????—★Pika3323 15:16, 11 March 2011 (EST)
Yes; PokéCardex is a new affiliate, and we're very happy to have them with us! Thank them for those high-res card images currently uploaded, and the COMPLETE TRIUMPHANT SET IN FULL RGB HIRESNESS soon to be uploaded. As for the Subway Bosses... I don't know where you're looking. Delibird's been there since February 21.--immewnitythemew 16:54, 11 March 2011 (EST)
Click on the file to see full size, Delibird's on the other side. Same with the Creation trio image.—★Pika3323 16:56, 11 March 2011 (EST)
THAT Delibird. That means a 404 Not Found. Can you try reuploading them if possible?--immewnitythemew 19:37, 11 March 2011 (EST)
On it.—★Pika3323 06:20, 12 March 2011 (EST)
Just wondering whether to move pokemon→Pokémon (If it doesn't have a capital, or "é" which is alt+130) It's proper spelling that way.—★Pika3323 08:45, 12 March 2011 (EST)
We're going to use "Pokemon", as the accent causes page issues.--immewnitythemew 21:21, 12 March 2011 (EST)
You said you'd need me soon, so what are we doing now?—★Pika3323 19:19, 13 March 2011 (EDT)
Goody! CMYK files! Where are they, come on put them in the box!!!—★Pika3323 19:55, 13 March 2011 (EDT)
Sorry, had some CPU issues. It's there now.--immewnitythemew 21:41, 13 March 2011 (EDT)
Which files?—★Pika3323 06:24, 14 March 2011 (EDT)
What's with the puppy???—★Pika3323 06:42, 14 March 2011 (EDT)
The CMYK image that needs converting is HGSS1_FR_1.tif. The puppy and kitty are there to look at when we get bored. :D Also, don't convert the eps files to png; they're vector, so we can make them as big as we want.--immewnitythemew 07:23, 14 March 2011 (EDT)
Tif?—★Pika3323 07:38, 14 March 2011 (EDT)
TIF. Photoshop should open it.--immewnitythemew 18:25, 14 March 2011 (EDT)
YES I KNOW WHAT A TIF IS! Where is that Tif?—★Pika3323 18:57, 14 March 2011 (EDT)
Umm... in the Dropbox...--immewnitythemew 20:59, 17 March 2011 (EDT)
What folder. P.S. your recently added images (like the Xtranciever) have weird ICC profiles, so I can't convert them.—★Pika3323 16:37, 29 March 2011 (EDT)
Nevermind on the TIF thing. I'm just converting HGSS3 now. I know about the weird profiles, and am searching for a fix. Those were from the French press site, btw. Also, don't delete layered PDF files ever; just putting it out there. Especially if they're not from the UK press site.--immewnitythemew 17:43, 29 March 2011 (EDT)
I deleted a PDF?—★Pika3323 17:48, 29 March 2011 (EDT)
Typefail. PSD.--immewnitythemew 17:59, 29 March 2011 (EDT)
Why?—★Pika3323 18:03, 29 March 2011 (EDT)
There's generally a lot we can get out of those.--immewnitythemew 19:56, 29 March 2011 (EDT)


Your roundy template keeps meking an odd curve in the bottom right corner. Could you fix that? —★Pika3323 21:04, 19 March 2011 (EDT)

Can you show me an example?--immewnitythemew 21:58, 19 March 2011 (EDT)
Older revision of Template:Hiya and Template:De-CMYK—★Pika3323 22:02, 19 March 2011 (EDT)
I was using the same kinda thing like the sidebar, but if you want to make it uniform on all corners go ahead. It was just for artistic effect.--immewnitythemew 22:06, 19 March 2011 (EDT)
The effect is not inn full roundy-ness.—★Pika3323 22:09, 19 March 2011 (EDT)
Huh?--immewnitythemew 22:37, 19 March 2011 (EDT)

Featured art

I'm working on a way for the file to switch automaticly once a month (Can't be random at re-loading page, sidebar and main page would differ.) but it wants november's coding. Why?—★Pika3323 16:40, 21 March 2011 (EDT)

Problem found.—★Pika3323 16:46, 21 March 2011 (EDT)

Yay for PidgiPress!

Won't there be a limit to what we can do with only images though? (Loophole! Type the news onto a picture!)—★Pika3323 20:10, 22 March 2011 (EDT)

You got it. See the Global Link thing. I'll try not to use our own text, though.--immewnitythemew 20:13, 22 March 2011 (EDT)
Put it on noticebar above? (The MediaWiki thing.)—★Pika3323 20:21, 22 March 2011 (EDT)
I'll take care of promotional marketing for PidgiPress.--immewnitythemew 20:32, 22 March 2011 (EDT)

Original anime series artwork, and more.

Why are there original anime series artwork in the dropbox, didn't you say you got vectors of them? Also any chance of getting vectors of dream world art? Or is that impossible right now? Also what about vectors for pokemon like Emolga from the anime?—★Pika3323 16:47, 25 March 2011 (EDT)

Wait re-read it, got it.—★Pika3323 16:48, 25 March 2011 (EDT)
Original anime vectors are there as eps. I have Dream World as swf, it takes time to convert to SVG, as I must do them individually. As for BW anime art, no vectors for most ATM. I think I have the starters, though.--immewnitythemew 17:18, 25 March 2011 (EDT)
Can you convert swf to eps? Also are you sure the Bulbasaur anime art doesn't have any problems? I looks different then bulbapedia's.—★Pika3323 06:41, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
Yes you can convert them like that just maybe not the way your doing it. (I want the eps file format since I find it easier to use.)—★Pika3323 08:52, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
You like eps over svg?--immewnitythemew 10:16, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
Nevermind that comment I said about enabling eps uploading. The eps file can have scripts in it that can kill the server, so... svg.--immewnitythemew 10:19, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
Immewnity's magical extraction powers → SWF to EPS → Puts in dropbox → Pika3323 works his wonders → Uploads as png! Something along the lines of that.—★Pika3323 10:25, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
No, not at all. We gotta extract shapes from the SWFs to FLAs, convert those to EPS/SVG, convert to SVG if not already, and upload. NO DEVECTORIZING. EVER. I have SVG enabled for a reason.--immewnitythemew 13:14, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
Ok... I don't understand anything except to not convert swf → eps?—★Pika3323 13:20, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
Anything vector should be uploaded as SVG. EPS, SWF, and FLA need to be converted to SVG. We upload the SVGs, not converting to PNG like you did with Bulbasaur.--immewnitythemew 14:49, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
What svg editor do you use?—★Pika3323 08:04, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
Inkscape, generally.--immewnitythemew 08:59, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
How the hell do I convert EPS→SVG? Inkscape doesn't support EPS files.—★Pika3323 09:20, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
I don't have a converter yet, I gotta pester my sister to use her Mac, as I know of a batch converter for that.--immewnitythemew 09:47, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
Pester! Pester! Pester! Does we links pokemens names to bulbapedia too?—★Pika3323 10:16, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
If you want. I set up interwiki with it.--immewnitythemew 15:25, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
Did that all afternoon. =P—★Pika3323 15:28, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
Thanks!--immewnitythemew 15:30, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
Not done yet though, taking a break (by editing more!)—★Pika3323 15:31, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
Interwiki with other wikis? (for other chrecters like link, and mario)—★Pika3323 15:57, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
I'll put NIWA in later; I've got a lot of conversions to do.--immewnitythemew 20:11, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
Got it.—★Pika3323 20:23, 27 March 2011 (EDT)
...Have you ever thought of joining th NIWA?—★Pika3323 17:59, 30 March 2011 (EDT)

Won't be happening soon, if at all. Something could be worked out, in theory, though.--immewnitythemew 19:19, 30 March 2011 (EDT)

Holy crap

What are you doing??? (Yay! I'm back!!!)—★Pika3323 19:12, 28 March 2011 (EDT)

Are you a bot?

Immewnity? are you okay? *takes teperature of immewnity*—★Pika3323 19:29, 28 March 2011 (EDT)
I'm fine. I got a nifty addon that does mass changing.--immewnitythemew 19:50, 28 March 2011 (EDT)
Create pokemon categories with: The following are artwork of [[bp:{{subst:BASEPAGENAME}}|{{subst:BASEPAGENAME}}]]. [[Category:Pokémon]] it works.—★Pika3323 19:53, 28 March 2011 (EDT)
Alright! Ooh, lemme see if I can figure out a bot to make these.--immewnitythemew 20:04, 28 March 2011 (EDT)
Bots They're evil, and have a mind of their own...—★Pika3323 06:39, 29 March 2011 (EDT)
What ever happened to Ho-Oh fan? (guess who he/she was)—★Pika3323 15:42, 29 March 2011 (EDT)(not me though)
Wow, not sure how you dug that up. Ho-Oh Fan is actually my cousin; he signed up recently now under his new name, Da braviary. As for a mass deleter... that's what I tried to make PidgiBot do.--immewnitythemew 15:58, 29 March 2011 (EDT)
Di—*ting* Found gold here! " *Keeps Digging*—★Pika3323 16:04, 29 March 2011 (EDT)
Ah, you found the old site. Consider the slowness; see why I moved?--immewnitythemew 17:40, 29 March 2011 (EDT)
You re-created the site, not moved it.—★Pika3323 15:16, 30 March 2011 (EDT)
Well, I moved all that I could over. Originally, we had that same logo. I couldn't do a regular transfer.--immewnitythemew 17:06, 30 March 2011 (EDT)
How's PidgiBot? Also once you get the dream world art into SVGs can you put them in the dropbox?—★Pika3323 18:07, 30 March 2011 (EDT)
PidgiBot's not going too well; sorry! And I'll put the SVGs up when I can, but that may end up being in a few months. I'll put rasters, too, to make Jello happy. :P--immewnitythemew 19:18, 30 March 2011 (EDT)
IN A FEW MONTHS?!?! Why? Can't you put the ones that already are converted in there? The suspense is killing me.—★Pika3323 20:17, 30 March 2011 (EDT)
What I want to do is to get the SVG in the dropbox (not dorpbox) upload it here, then convert a version for the archives.—★Pika3323 20:20, 30 March 2011 (EDT)
I don't have any converted yet; wait, lemme see if the SWFs will fit in the Dropbox.--immewnitythemew 08:59, 31 March 2011 (EDT)
Don't need them all... besides, once converted you can delete it form the dropbox. I'll make some more room.—★Pika3323 15:41, 31 March 2011 (EDT)
Can you teach me how to get vectors of pokemon from the anime?—★Pika3323 16:43, 31 March 2011 (EDT)
Numerous places. I think Ash Pokemaster added SWFs through Hoenn on the Dropbox.--immewnitythemew 18:02, 31 March 2011 (EDT)
I hope you don't mind. =P—★Pika3323 18:07, 31 March 2011 (EDT)
Actually, I do; there's a reason that I set uploading so that images can't be bulk downloaded. Why take everything from the site we've worked on completing and gathering and just dump it to a commercial image repository? It violates out license. So, no.--immewnitythemew 18:48, 31 March 2011 (EDT)
It's gone now.—★Pika3323 18:53, 31 March 2011 (EDT)
I can upload 1 piece of art to there right? (Emolga)—★Pika3323 18:56, 31 March 2011 (EDT)
Yes; just make sure that there's enough that visitors go there instead of here.--immewnitythemew 19:04, 31 March 2011 (EDT)
???? What? I don't understand that.—★Pika3323 19:39, 31 March 2011 (EDT)

Categorizing for n00bs

Either a new page, or extension of naming conventions on how to categorize properly. (i.e. You would add to a new piece of artwork [[Category:Artist's first+last name artwork]] [[Category:any pokemon in artwork]] [[Category:game it's from]] [[Category:generation #]])>—★Pika3323 16:01, 1 April 2011 (EDT)

I'll figure that out soon. It'll probably be on the upload form.--immewnitythemew 16:52, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
FANART template for n00bs too, incase some other n00b uploads FANART and we're not there, but some bum is.—★Pika3323 20:54, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
Yup.--immewnitythemew 20:55, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
This artwork is a fanwork. By marking this image, an administrator will delete it. That's the text I got. Reviewment please.—★Pika3323 21:04, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
Check now.--immewnitythemew 21:11, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
Pidgiborders for all?—★Pika3323 21:12, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
It's not going out of business any time soon, so why stop using it?--immewnitythemew 21:12, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
???? I mean use it for all the other templates.—★Pika3323 21:13, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
Yes.--immewnitythemew 21:14, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
Other suggestions Border-less templates (they look cool), How's the category thing going in your mind?—★Pika3323 21:31, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
Need this?—★Pika3323 08:34, 2 April 2011 (EDT)
I have some of those already installed, some didn't work previously, and others will be installed soon.--immewnitythemew 10:25, 2 April 2011 (EDT)
Just noticed my derp there. :P I'd say keep it for now, it's the old to-do list.--immewnitythemew 11:32, 2 April 2011 (EDT)

Big mistake

You should have waited until after we deleted all the redirect to change everything to Ken Sugimori. It's really confusing now.—★Pika3323 08:46, 2 April 2011 (EDT)

Now, though, we have special pages that tell us the broken and double redirects to delete.--immewnitythemew 10:25, 2 April 2011 (EDT)
Yes I know, but I get realy frantic whenever I delete a file with a name of Japenese name here - Ken Sugimori. Your move job also moved the redirects.—★Pika3323 12:04, 2 April 2011 (EDT)
Hm? I dunno. Right now we can leave redirects alone, because I have another task for you. The only way I'll be able to do this is by adding a single category to every file, so bear with me. What we'll need to do is go through the giant category and find images that are reported as missing, or the less severe missing case. I'm trying to figure out the more severe missing case. You'll see what I mean; hold on.--immewnitythemew 12:13, 2 April 2011 (EDT)
This is trickier than you think, redirects count as missing, and my mind is still asjusted to the old system.—★Pika3323 06:33, 3 April 2011 (EDT)
This job is no fun. =(—★Pika3323 07:01, 3 April 2011 (EDT)
I know; just hang in there. In fact, for the time being, stop. I found an extention that can bulk delete, including redirects.--immewnitythemew 08:47, 3 April 2011 (EDT)
  • Playing computer games again*—★Pika3323 08:56, 3 April 2011 (EDT)
Grand total of 1 missing file.—★Pika3323 14:05, 3 April 2011 (EDT)

Creation trio fixed itself?--immewnitythemew 14:09, 3 April 2011 (EDT)

Woops, still need to re-upload that one. (Freakin slow internetz)—★Pika3323 14:17, 3 April 2011 (EDT)
Fix time eh?—★Pika3323 14:19, 3 April 2011 (EDT)
I'd rather we had waited until we made sure that we didn't skip over any *cough*Creation trio*cough*.--immewnitythemew 17:11, 3 April 2011 (EDT)
Well if some user *cough*S2daam*cough* could upload it (he's got a faster computer than me) than that would be awesome.—★Pika3323 17:33, 3 April 2011 (EDT)
Or if some user *cough*immewnity*cough* could upload it (I've got multiple computers to work with) then that would be awesome. :P --immewnitythemew 18:35, 3 April 2011 (EDT)
So what else can I do? We're moving, our server is dying, so it would be a hell lot easier to leave this place alone wouldn't it?—★Pika3323 15:26, 4 April 2011 (EDT)
You can do database things, just don't upload too much. I've already done a raw backup of the files, but haven't of the database.--immewnitythemew 15:44, 4 April 2011 (EDT)
Blank the notice? Or change it?—★Pika3323 15:56, 4 April 2011 (EDT)
Keep it.--immewnitythemew 16:34, 4 April 2011 (EDT)
Excuse me, but where did Vector.css go?—★Pika3323 18:59, 4 April 2011 (EDT)
Hm? There wasn't anything in MediaWiki:Vector.css ever, if that's what you mean. That's only used for user changes. The server's Vector.css is intact.--immewnitythemew 19:03, 4 April 2011 (EDT)
Yeah...just saw that.—★Pika3323 19:04, 4 April 2011 (EDT)
Some other non-important questions, will we upgrade MediaWiki when we move? We're behind 0.00.2 versions, and will the vector ski get some pidgey-like tint when we move?—★Pika3323 19:08, 4 April 2011 (EDT)
Yes, an upgrade is probably in order. As for vector, I'm working on updates to both skins.--immewnitythemew 19:27, 4 April 2011 (EDT)
=)—★Pika3323 19:29, 4 April 2011 (EDT)


Doing research, and I don't feel like learning how to set up my own wiki to do it.—★Pika3323 15:50, 7 April 2011 (EDT)

Let me try doing a temporary fix. It may not be perfect.--immewnitythemew 16:13, 7 April 2011 (EDT)
Whoah, that glitch was weird.—★Pika3323 16:46, 7 April 2011 (EDT)
I accidentally marked something twice in LocalSettings.--immewnitythemew 16:56, 7 April 2011 (EDT)
Nice changes, I like.—★Pika3323 18:17, 7 April 2011 (EDT)
Thanks.--immewnitythemew 18:38, 7 April 2011 (EDT)
Can't get the BG uploaded. Can you?—★Pika3323 20:00, 7 April 2011 (EDT)
Gimme one sec.--immewnitythemew 20:05, 7 April 2011 (EDT)
I have a suspicion that "creation trio" is layered. Is that true?—★Pika3323 06:49, 8 April 2011 (EDT)
Yeah, but it's all shadowing.--immewnitythemew 07:09, 8 April 2011 (EDT)
But the dash ilust... that I'm working on right now.—★Pika3323 07:25, 8 April 2011 (EDT)
For the future: PDF→PNG? That's possible.—★Pika3323 15:44, 8 April 2011 (EDT)
No. PDF is a vector format, PNG is a raster. PDF is the best idea right now, though extracting the logos and images from them additionally would be ideal.--immewnitythemew 16:57, 8 April 2011 (EDT)
Yeah I realised PDFs were vectors, with elephants. =)PidgiBot update?—★Pika3323 17:13, 8 April 2011 (EDT)
??? Also, only upload useful layer pieces, not like shadows. Those are effects, not artwork.--immewnitythemew 17:28, 8 April 2011 (EDT)
The elephant Yay! moar affiliate!—★Pika3323 11:38, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
Um, that featured art... The text should look more like what the "toolbox" text looks like.—★Pika3323 11:41, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
I know, and affiliates needs caps.--immewnitythemew 13:34, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
Just want all this out of my way:
1. How's pidgibot? 2. Will the swfs fit into the dropbox, or at least some?—★Pika3323 17:04, 9 April 2011 (EDT)(there, it's out of my system, *phew!*)
1. Dead for the time being.
2. Let me see.--immewnitythemew 17:09, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
Making a bit of room, please tell me we can delete the layered PSD files after were done with them (i.e. the shaymin one). After all, their not gone forever.—★Pika3323 17:16, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
After we're done, yes. Just make sure we didn't miss anything.--immewnitythemew 17:18, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
That didn't take up that much space now did it? Can you send me FlashExploit? Your help page's link is broken. =P—★Pika3323 17:33, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
That's actually from bluesun. A quick Google search should get you Flash Exploit, so... here--immewnitythemew 17:44, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
Thanks!—★Pika3323 21:41, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
The art has trickled over, YES I SEE IT'S OVER THE LIMITS AND MAY BE REALLY BLURRY, CLEAR THE GODDAMM CACHE—★Pika3323 22:11, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
Two things: 1) I know you know it's over the limit, but I got banned for a week for doing one image over the limit. 2) Whatever you are using to rasterize the vector doesn't smooth edges. Use this.--immewnitythemew 22:14, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
That's 'cause I copied it directly from inkscape to Paint.NET, how do you get rid of these pesky lines in between colors?—★Pika3323 06:40, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
Do you want the svgs that I convert RIGHT now?—★Pika3323 06:46, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
I'm putting them in as a SVGZ format BTW.—★Pika3323 07:33, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
Hey, some SWFs are missing what's that supposed to mean (I found Ivysaur but not Pidgey)—★Pika3323 08:09, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
NO SVGZ. It messes up MediaWiki. You can't get rid of the pesky lines, and they just are missing. And YES, put the SVGs in. Upload them, put them in Dropbox, whatever.--immewnitythemew 10:14, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
SVGZ can be converted to SVG.—★Pika3323 10:24, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
Do you really want to do more conversions?--immewnitythemew 11:00, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
13/600+ files, I'm fine.—★Pika3323 11:06, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
After those 13 I started exporting them as plain SVGs—★Pika3323 11:09, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
Okay. :D--immewnitythemew 13:11, 10 April 2011 (EDT)

Active Hiatus Inactive and Around

Because some users aren't "Active" Or "Hiatus" or "Inactive" So there should be something in between, like "Around".—★Pika3323 20:45, 10 April 2011 (EDT)

Done.--immewnitythemew 21:05, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
I have no idea what any of these are.. someone care to tell me how they work?-- samm :) talk to me 05:28, 11 April 2011 (EDT)
