Image layout and numerous uploads[edit]

I'm wondering whether the issue images can be better presented than they are at the moment (move them to a gallery), and whether we want to have all Nintendo Power pages that feature Kirby. I've been referring to this Kirby's Rainbow Resort's page and by the looks of it, every major game has an in-depth feature, some with up to ten pages, in various volumes of the magazine. In these cases, do we want to host only the first page, all of them, or none? Super Mario Wiki has only a cover gallery, for comparison. –Wiz (talk · edits) 02:42, 17 December 2021 (UTC)

I feel like if the page covers Kirby, then we should cover the page. We should definitely get any unique images, but if the page is just artwork that we already have and/or text, then I think just quoting it should be fine. ---PinkYoshiFan 17:35, 2 March 2022 (UTC)

Personally, I don't think there needs to be more than one picture relevant to each feature in Nintendo Power. The rest should be done via text. We are not an archive. --Samwell (talk) 23:28, 3 July 2022 (UTC)
Honestly, looking at this, I agree with Samwell. I do think the comics should all be here though, mostly because we tend to have them here in the wiki in full, but we don't have to have images of every single page that covers Kirby content. I am also saying this because I have been personally compiling every mention of Kirby in the Brazilian official Nintendo magazine that existed here (Nintendo World), and frankly if we compiled literally everything for the wiki it would be too much. I think we should focus on what's unique the most, personally. - Gigi (talkedits) 22:42, 11 July 2022 (UTC)
Yep, I agree. From the current uploads, should probably get rid of everything but comics and the images for 68 and 72. No reason to host pages like the ones in 166 and 171 that merely mention "Kirby". Next, most pages containing screenshots and descriptions of the game are also unnecessary, there's a ton of these. I've uploaded the image for 68, which is pretty obscure and pre-release, so I think we should probably keep it, but it's up to the community. –Wiz (talk · edits) 23:28, 11 July 2022 (UTC)
