Was there something wrong with it?—★Pika3323 20:37, 7 May 2011 (CDT)

First, I asked you to ask me before changing layout stuff. Second, I'm working on an announcement right now, and want the feature to reflect current main content.--immewnitythemew 20:42, 7 May 2011 (CDT)
Oh yeah, that....—★Pika3323 20:45, 7 May 2011 (CDT)
Sorry about those files, I converted them before the server was fixed, and forgot to change it.—★Pika3323 08:39, 8 May 2011 (CDT)
It's okay. :P--immewnitythemew 08:40, 8 May 2011 (CDT)

I'll take Mario.

Saw the article on PidgiPress.. I'd love to be head of all the mario news :D -- samm :) talk to me 10:10, 8 May 2011 (CDT)

Done.—★Pika3323 10:49, 8 May 2011 (CDT)
Well, almost. I did the paperwork for it.—★Pika3323 10:53, 8 May 2011 (CDT)
I need you to create a PidgiPress account first. Look under Site Tools for more info.--immewnitythemew 12:23, 8 May 2011 (CDT)
By the way.. I've done some searching and cannot find the artist behind Mario's art.. so Is it OK if just like Category:Ken Sugimori artwork I use Category:Mario artwork ?? So it's definately OK to upload Mario artwork? It's gonna take some time, there's obviously a lot to get through :P -- samm :) talk to me 12:52, 12 May 2011 (CDT)
a lot of our artwork doesn't have a mentioned artist. If the artist is unknown than no category mentioning "artwork" is used. Instead the game's category is used, and the series' category too. Yes, it's OK to upload that stuff.—★Pika3323 13:51, 12 May 2011 (CDT)
I have a list of artists. I just don't know who did what.--immewnitythemew 18:54, 12 May 2011 (CDT)

Remember those vectors???

I can start uploading them now, right?—★Pika3323 14:14, 12 May 2011 (CDT)

Mhm. I'm still working on getting thumbnails to work, though.--immewnitythemew 18:54, 12 May 2011 (CDT)
Also, for 3DS screen shots, do I crop out the "2D screenshot of a 3D game"?—★Pika3323 14:23, 12 May 2011 (CDT)
If you want. Just remember that 3DS screenshots are to ALWAYS be uploaded as PNGs, no exceptions (so far).--immewnitythemew 18:54, 12 May 2011 (CDT)
Why png only? What about that Solatorobo thing, worth keeping?—★Pika3323 19:58, 12 May 2011 (CDT)
Because right now, all of them are pixel-for-pixel versions. As for Solatorobo... delete it.--immewnitythemew 20:10, 12 May 2011 (CDT)
Any special naming for screenshots?—★Pika3323 05:05, 13 May 2011 (CDT)
ScreenshotTitle - GameName screenshot.png--immewnitythemew 06:18, 13 May 2011 (CDT)
Take your journey to libsvg.dll, that may be the problem.—★Pika3323 05:15, 13 May 2011 (CDT)
Already tried. Something's messed up with our version of librsvg.--immewnitythemew 06:18, 13 May 2011 (CDT)
Would an update to mediawiki and other thingys help it?—★Pika3323 06:23, 13 May 2011 (CDT)
It'd harm it if anything.--immewnitythemew 15:47, 13 May 2011 (CDT)
Then what will you do? Re-Download mediawiki and replace the faulty file?—★Pika3323 06:36, 14 May 2011 (CDT)
It's not MediaWiki, it's the converter.--immewnitythemew 06:46, 14 May 2011 (CDT)
MediaWiki doesn't come with the converter?—★Pika3323 06:55, 14 May 2011 (CDT)
Nope. That's why Bulbagarden Archives doesn't support SVGs.--immewnitythemew 06:56, 14 May 2011 (CDT)
Then where does it come from?—★Pika3323 06:59, 14 May 2011 (CDT)
We have to use a converter; I've tried rsvg, ImageMagick, and Inkscape, and no luck so far.--immewnitythemew 07:03, 14 May 2011 (CDT)
So where does the converter come from? Can't you replace it?—★Pika3323 07:05, 14 May 2011 (CDT)
It comes from the Internet, and yes; I've tried three different ones to no avail.--immewnitythemew 07:09, 14 May 2011 (CDT)
Use Twitter to find someone to help, again!—★Pika3323 07:13, 14 May 2011 (CDT)


Use the preview button! It's what makes the world go round.--immewnitythemew 20:16, 16 May 2011 (CDT)

Ah, if only there were a preview button for life...—★Pika3323 05:58, 17 May 2011 (CDT)

Featured art.

PLEASE!!!! PUT IT BACK ON VECTOR!!! D=—★Pika3323 19:41, 22 May 2011 (CDT)

It's missing from Monobook, too. Lemme find the old code.--immewnitythemew 19:45, 22 May 2011 (CDT)
Is this (the bottom of the section) supposed to be still there?—★Pika3323 19:58, 22 May 2011 (CDT)
It all depends on administration.--immewnitythemew 19:59, 22 May 2011 (CDT)
Back to art.... Move is a little to the left, and remove the border, it's ugly.—★Pika3323 20:01, 22 May 2011 (CDT)
Hm?--immewnitythemew 20:09, 22 May 2011 (CDT)
In Vector, there's a 1px border, and it's up against the right edge, which doesn't look nice.—★Pika3323 20:10, 22 May 2011 (CDT)
Clear your cache, and all will be right.--immewnitythemew 20:13, 22 May 2011 (CDT)
Just to nag you more. The vector colour should a bit be darker. =P—★Pika3323 17:06, 24 May 2011 (CDT)
Grrg. Later.--immewnitythemew 18:31, 24 May 2011 (CDT)
1. ONLY VECTOR. 2. Really! It would look nicer.—★Pika3323 19:26, 24 May 2011 (CDT)

SVG cropping

How do I do that?—★Pika3323 06:41, 23 May 2011 (CDT)

In Inkscape. Draw a square around the area you want visible. CTRL+A. OBJECT>CLIP>SET. FILE>DOCUMENT PROPERTIES> FIT PAGE TO SELECTION.--immewnitythemew 16:16, 23 May 2011 (CDT)


Need more roundy border templates for other things, Some people don't wand to use pidgi-borders. =P—★Pika3323 11:49, 29 May 2011 (CDT)

Try {{border-radius|pidgi=no}}.--immewnitythemew 12:07, 29 May 2011 (CDT)

File:File-Ranger Guardian Signs logo EN.png

That was MediaWiki's fault BTW.—★Pika3323 19:49, 4 June 2011 (CDT)

Yeah, yeah, blame the software. :P Also, JSYK, there's a better HeartGold logo on the UK site.--immewnitythemew 21:10, 4 June 2011 (CDT)


You put us out of buisness now, the only thing we (commonly) [or] (are allowed to) do that they don't is block people.—★Pika3323 13:59, 6 June 2011 (CDT)

Oh trust me, there's quite a difference.--immewnitythemew 14:00, 6 June 2011 (CDT)
I can't because you won't let me:
Edit Interwiki data
I don't because it's not needed:
Batch delete pages
Edit other users' CSS files
Edit other users' JavaScript files
Import pages from other wikis
Mark others' edits as patrolled
What we both do:
Change protection levels and edit protected pages
Delete pages
Move files
Move pages
Overwrite existing files
Upload files from a URL
View deleted history entries, without their associated text
The rest is just stuff. Also, Interwiki for da E3DB.—★Pika3323 14:10, 6 June 2011 (CDT)
Feel free to edit Interwiki stuff. MediaWiki stuff I don't want you to edit. Also, there is a hierarchy system; administrators will always have a higher say over Trainers. Not to mention that Trainers are still being worked out.--immewnitythemew 14:14, 6 June 2011 (CDT)

Now then...

...about that categorization page?—★Pika3323 15:55, 6 June 2011 (CDT)

Which page?--immewnitythemew 16:16, 6 June 2011 (CDT)
You were supposed to make one =P—★Pika3323 16:32, 6 June 2011 (CDT)


Accents? Don't accents have issues?—★Pika3323 05:46, 7 June 2011 (CDT)

Featured art for the ? time

Change time, it's June. =P—★Pika3323 16:18, 8 June 2011 (CDT)

It isn't monthly, but I'll change it tomorrow.--immewnitythemew 22:13, 8 June 2011 (CDT)
Tomorrow was 11 days ago. Also, remember to update it every MW update too.—★Pika3323 13:51, 20 June 2011 (CDT)
Oh yeah. :P Sorry.--immewnitythemew 13:52, 20 June 2011 (CDT)
Jeesh, give me time to fix it. I had to go to a meeting.--immewnitythemew 19:10, 20 June 2011 (CDT)
I'm gonna freak out here, could you move the FA in the side bar so that it's cantered? Thnx. =)—★Pika3323 19:16, 22 June 2011 (CDT)
Done.--immewnitythemew 20:25, 22 June 2011 (CDT)

File:Green Tornado TCG logo.svg —★Pika3323 16:12, 2 July 2011 (CDT)

Ugh. Inkscape is really starting to annoy me.--immewnitythemew 16:15, 2 July 2011 (CDT)
Try converting the PDF to SVG, if you can figure out how without Inkscape.--immewnitythemew 16:19, 2 July 2011 (CDT)
I'll research once my internet starts working again. =P i.e. it took 5 minutes to get this reply up.—★Pika3323 16:38, 2 July 2011 (CDT)

Categorization of Categories

I started categorizing categories in their respective series. Anything related to Pokémon on Pokémon, anything related to Zelda on Zelda, and so on. But I just thought of the possibility of doing wrong on this, hence I ask if I should continue on this without any specific direction. Also, am I free to change a few category names? For example, simply "Anime" for Pokémon anime artwork is quite misleading. And by chance, are there any other things I could do for the categories? For example, should I put content in them -- so that they will not be non-existing articles anymore? If so, I guess I can follow the style of already existing category articles, right?

Just a check-in, in order to not cause any unnecessary work. :P Ash Pokemaster 05:12, 13 July 2011 (CDT)

If you're creating a pokemon category, crate it as such: The following are artwork of [[bp:{{subst:BASEPAGENAME}}|{{subst:BASEPAGENAME}}]]. [[Category:Pokémon]]

Like that. It will automaticaly change to the pokemon's name. Also Zelda is The Legend of Zelda. But you can redirect if you want.—★Pika3323 06:01, 13 July 2011 (CDT)

PidgiWiki:Categorization—★Pika3323 06:05, 13 July 2011 (CDT)
Basically, it all comes down to me having a flawed categorization system to begin with. I have not changed much in how I categorized, and that's an issue. Ideally, images should be categorized with the game it is from, the series it is from, who it is... etc. Categorize everything you possibly can for an image, and I'll check and make sure that all is good. Eventually, I'll come up with a template, but that'll be once categories are established.
As for the anime thing, use Category:Anime for any anime, Pokemon or not. This is where the series category would come in handy. By using Special:MultiCategorySearch, you can input Anime and Sonic, for example, and get Sonic anime images.
Also, as you mentioned, Pika3323, some of the names can be easily disputed. So let's get on a consensus here. Pokémon. The Legend of Zelda. Kirby. Super Monkey Ball. Sonic. Mario. Sound good?--immewnitythemew 07:54, 13 July 2011 (CDT)
Oh and BTW Mario = Series, and character = Confusion.—★Pika3323 08:46, 13 July 2011 (CDT)
Ah crud. Then, let's make the series Super Mario Bros.. Sonic will then be Sonic the Hedgehog, and Kirby... what should Kirby be? Kirby Kirby Kirby? :D--immewnitythemew 09:02, 13 July 2011 (CDT)

New, non-Pokémon Affiliate

I just wanted to know if you'd like a new, non-Pokémon affiliate. The Zeldathon Network is a Zelda community website that, in addition to 24/7 gaming streaming, has frequent charity marathons that have been wildly popular, and we'd love to be able to work with you! Let me know as soon as you can :)! --JB2448 17:16, 13 July 2011 (CDT)

Currently, I will have to decline. I will talk it over with the appropriate staff members, and then we will consider affiliation.--immewnitythemew 19:36, 13 July 2011 (CDT)


OMG you make us do so much! =/—★Pika3323 08:47, 2 August 2011 (CDT)

LOL. :P--immewnitythemew 08:48, 2 August 2011 (CDT)
XP To make up for it, once I'm back home, I'll see how much of the Dropbox I can empty. =)—★Pika3323 07:30, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
Dang, I forgot about the Dropbox. lol --immewnitythemew 08:36, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
Categories by language. a must.—★Pika3323 08:48, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
Okay. Also, I noticed that I haven't been infoboxing correctly. Don't worry about that for now; I'll spend a day where I go through every file and categorize correctly.--immewnitythemew 08:55, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
For lang, is it abrev or whole.—★Pika3323 09:11, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
Whole for description, short for title.--immewnitythemew 09:18, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
Sega is not nintendo BTW. May want to add a parser.—★Pika3323 07:01, 5 August 2011 (CDT)
I still need to get the Sega logo uploaded. :P--immewnitythemew 07:03, 5 August 2011 (CDT)

CMYK, can it be fully resolved?

Sooner or later we have to find a way that works properly, any ideas now?—★Pika3323 07:41, 11 September 2011 (PDT)

No idea.--immewnitythemew 08:07, 11 September 2011 (PDT)


If you really care... this. (Yes it is RED)—★Pika3323 14:20, 21 September 2011 (PDT)

I know, I know! I have school and LOTS of homework! Give me a break. :P I'll get to it this weekend if I can.--immewnitythemew 17:57, 21 September 2011 (PDT)
In response, I'll say that there have been no Legend of Zelda articles posted on PidgiPress.--immewnitythemew 18:04, 21 September 2011 (PDT)
But, but!!! It's to late to say that SS is releasing in november.... =P—★Pika3323 03:45, 22 September 2011 (PDT)

A few questions...

Hey immewnity, I have a few questions regarding lots of different things. First, we want card scans, yes? Where do we get them from? I know of a few sites (not Pokebeach) that have quite good ones, but is it okay to use their scans? I know some sites have issues with that, but in the end, no site actually owns those card scans, so it should be alright to 'borrow' scans from other sites, shouldn't it? Also, wouldn't it be better to upload png's for artwork instead of jpg's (we've got Bulbapedia and, but then you've got the "stealing" issue again, so I'm not sure.) One last thing, what do you want me to write for non-Pokemon categories? And... that's it (I think) ~たかはりい 01:54, 28 September 2011 (PDT)

1) No card scans. Stock images yes. Eventually, yes to scans, but... you'll see later this year/early next year.
2) Only if it originated as a PNG or a PSD. We aren't adding transparency or removing transparency for anything. No file type changing unless absolutely necessary.
3) Uh... whatever you want. :P Try sticking to basically what's on the other ones, but you can change it up. As long as it makes sense, it's good.--immewnitythemew 04:04, 28 September 2011 (PDT)
Basically, for question 2, give me an example.--immewnitythemew 04:06, 28 September 2011 (PDT)
Bulbapedia has their own things with artwork, they don't give a damn whether it was a cheap background removal.—★Pika3323 11:54, 28 September 2011 (PDT)
Exactly. They create transparency to fit their needs wants.--immewnitythemew 18:46, 28 September 2011 (PDT)

About the powers...

90% chance I don't do anything until at least November. =P —★Pika3323 16:43, 5 October 2011 (PDT)

Hahaha, okay. :P BTW, looks like we won't be getting full art boosters from EP. :( --immewnitythemew 17:46, 5 October 2011 (PDT)

2000 - 29,047

There has to be a way to make that happen. So a calculation that would tell you how many files to go.—★Pika3323 16:48, 9 November 2011 (PST)

Ooh, I got an idea!—★Pika3323 16:49, 9 November 2011 (PST)
*cough*SkywardSwordArt*cough*. I left it at that number so I'm not the one to upload the 2,000th file.--immewnitythemew 18:22, 9 November 2011 (PST)
? What? So, ya gonna use it?—★Pika3323 03:36, 10 November 2011 (PST)
I'm saying that you could upload the Skyward Sword art if you would like. And I'm not sure if I'll use it.--immewnitythemew 06:00, 10 November 2011 (PST)
Scratch that. Used. --immewnitythemew 06:03, 10 November 2011 (PST)
What art?—★Pika3323 11:56, 10 November 2011 (PST)
The ones I told you about over two weeks ago.--immewnitythemew 15:11, 10 November 2011 (PST)

8MB files

HALP I'M UPLOADING FILES OVER THE 7MB LIMIT!!!—★Pika3323 12:52, 10 November 2011 (PST)

What files? I'll get the FTP server set up for you if needed, so just tell me what.--immewnitythemew 15:11, 10 November 2011 (PST)
Let me check if they're on—★Pika3323 15:22, 10 November 2011 (PST)
Alright. They should be under approximately the same names as in the UK site. I simplified a few down, though.--immewnitythemew 16:27, 10 November 2011 (PST)
