Images in sigs[edit]

Thanks for all of your contributions! I noticed your sig used images and we really don't do that here since they can make talk pages quite messy. Your userpage would be a good place to use the images, and you are free to personalize that as much as you'd like. Otherwise your sig looks great. Excellent choice of fonts and color. Axiomist (talk) 22:42, 26 September 2010 (CDT)

Haha! Don't try to flatter me. Well, I didn't know that. You should really make some guidelines for signatures so you do not have to remind new users about stuff they don't know. Or maybe I overlooked the guidelines. Anyway, thanks for the complement. AphelocomaMario.pngAphelocomaマリオ KSSU Birdon Animated Sprite.gif 21:49, 29 September 2010 (CDT)

So, why were the images never removed? :\ Sig guidelines are here (and have been since May 2010): Help:Custom Signatures. Sorry, need to enforce this equally on everyone...--Vellidragon 11:49, 28 June 2012 (CDT)

Well, I forgot, and I wasn't active when they were enacted. :PAphelocomaマリオ 14:14, 29 June 2012 (CDT)
That's alright. Thank you for removing them :3 Sorry about that, the rule was probably rather hard to find originally... I have since added it to WiKirby:User Accounts, but that was long after the initial discussion here.--Vellidragon 14:56, 29 June 2012 (CDT)


Hello :) Thanks for using images that (as far as I know) are not stolen from somewhere. However, remember to use the ImCap template for transparent-background images. T.c.w7468 19:05, 25 June 2012 (CDT)

Crappy Servers[edit]

Look, your pic won't upload simply because it EXCEEDS the limit no more no less. Also, JPG is a compressed file format, so it is smaller than PNGs and therefore less of a size to upload.

PS Wario sucks


Hm, I checked. Most of our pics don't even reach the MB range (not even close). I still think that the server is being overloaded or something.

For some pictures, the source itself is missing, but only the pic is available. As for Dyna Blade, I just used Google's search engine, found it, and it actually came from some fan website, but I thought it looked official anyway so I took it. I guess that person who posted it took it from yet another website, but I do not know what it is
I can't say for the source of the panels because I (or, erhm, rather, WE) ripped them from the game itself.

Country Kirbys[edit]

Hallo there, felt I should let you know I actually made some more country Kirbys than are currently in the userbox list, I just have never gotten around to putting them on the site (France was one of them). I'm seeing Austria, Switzerland, Japan, PRoC, Spain, Canada, Australia and Denmark in my folder. Just letting you know so you don't go through the trouble of making these when they already exist; if you'd like any of them uploaded, I can do so.--Vellidragon 16:53, 7 July 2012 (CDT)

Oh okay, I wasn't aware of that. :P I found it weird that a big country like France was missing, though. Aphelocomaマリオ 21:07, 7 July 2012 (CDT)

Image Categories[edit]

Hey, would be nice if you could stop categorising these images until all the categories are in place. They're still a work in progress (there are no image type categories yet, and we are looking to put those in place simultaneously with the game-specific categories), and a lot of the things you are manually categorising can also be categorised via text-replace.--Vellidragon 13:33, 22 July 2012 (CDT)

Oh, shoot, am I jumping the gun? Sorry if I caused any unnecessary trouble. Well, thanks for telling me. Hm, what is text-replace? Aphelocomaマリオ 13:35, 22 July 2012 (CDT)
EDIT: Hm, what can I do right now pertaining to this subject? I would really love to help. Aphelocomaマリオ 13:38, 22 July 2012 (CDT)
Eh, don't worry about any trouble, I had just been looking to prevent unnecessary edits by adding all the categories at once (also to prevent all too major recent changes flooding), but like I said, not all have actually been made yet (probably later today, though). Text-replace (it's actually called "Replace text", I am just noticing) is a tool usable by administrators that automatically replaces/inserts text in pages; as far as I'm aware, it can also be set up to be limited to pages with a specific prefix (as well as enabling the user to exclude specific pages by unchecking them on a list), so I'm hoping (haven't tested it yet) that I can automatically insert image categories for everything with a prefix that gives any indication about the image's source and/or type, e.g. every "File:KDL2Art" could be automatically categorised under Kirby's Dream Land 2 images and Artwork. If it works like I'm hoping it does, I can do a lot of text replacing with the VelliBot account once the necessary categories exist.
As for what you can do, I'm not sure... Perhaps create the rest of the game categories. I'll look into setting up type categories later, and then will try to run those text replaces. After that, you'll be free to add things manually, I just don't want anyone to potentially waste their time on things that I could have done automatically.--Vellidragon 13:51, 22 July 2012 (CDT)
Okay, thanks for your kind comments. I really appreciate it how I don't have to do the unnecessary work. :) Oh well. I created the image categories just now. Aphelocomaマリオ 15:56, 22 July 2012 (CDT)

You should take a look at Category talk:Images by type. T.c.w7468 17:18, 22 July 2012 (CDT)

And also, thanks for the help with making game categories :3 I did a bit of (nigh-invisible due to using a "bot" account) text replacing (the Kirby's Dream Course & Kirby's Avalanche sprites are categorised now, as is all Kirby's Return to Dream Land artwork that starts with "KRTDL"), but I'm probably not going to do any more of that stuff today as it's late and I have other things to do. It seems to be working fine, though, so I'll try to get these done tomorrow :3 In the meantime, feel free to manually categorise anything that does not use a prefix as you see fit as I won't be able to text-replace categories into those.--Vellidragon 17:35, 22 July 2012 (CDT)
Okay, then! I'll be ready! Aphelocomaマリオ 17:42, 22 July 2012 (CDT)
Erm, it would have been nice to actually add the image type categories in addition to the game ones; that's why I made them. Now I'll have to edit them all again to add the other category tags :< --Vellidragon 10:19, 23 July 2012 (CDT)
Arggh, as for the image type, I didn't see it being used, and I didn't want to jump early. :( Aphelocomaマリオ 13:13, 23 July 2012 (CDT)
Ah, ok :< I already used the categories in my first few text replaces, but I suppose you didn't see that as they were bot edits (meaning they are only displayed if "show bots" is active). Well, nevermind now, going through those images made me find some stolen wikia things I might have missed otherwise :3 I am currently in the process of text replacing all other replaceable things I can think of. Kirby's Dream Land 2 images with prefix are all done, I think. Things are getting categorised fairly quickly like this, I'm hoping to have everything text-replaceable added to categories very soon.--Vellidragon 13:39, 23 July 2012 (CDT)
Huh, I didn't realize they were taken from wikia. :( They could at least source it. Aphelocomaマリオ 13:42, 23 July 2012 (CDT)
They could, but they're not going to (not that it would help, I'll still delete them unless the wikia uploader gave explicit permission to have the image on WiKirby). Half of the people who upload images here steal them from the wikia, even with all the reminders & warnings I've handed out due to that already :\ Anyway, I think I have inserted categories into everything with a proper prefix and a license I could think of (I used the license as a "reference" to tell the software where to insert the category tags, so they weren't inserted into anything without a copyright license), apart from things like models that will have to wait until there's a proper type category. Don't recall exactly what I've categorised, but prefixes I remember using are KDL, KDL2, KDL3, K&tAM/KatAM, NiDL, KNiD, KSqS, KStS, KSS, KEY and KRBaY, so almost everything with those prefixes should be categorised unless it has no license (though I believe I forgot to categorise the KEY screenshots...). Also, I've been putting the type categories before the game ones in everything I have categorised, should ideally be standardised like that (the order the tags are inserted affects the order in which the categories appear at the bottom), but doesn't matter if they're in a different order for some things.--Vellidragon 15:25, 23 July 2012 (CDT)
