About autoconfirmation[edit]

Hey! Looking at your recent contributions, you seem to be trying to upload a certain image on Marx's page. In order to upload an image, you must be autoconfirmed, which requires you to wait 1 day and make 5 edits. You've already been around a day, it seems, so you just need to make three other edits of any kind in order to upload images. Thanks for reading, and happy editing! -YFJ (talk · edits) 23:26, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

Use of unofficial images[edit]

Hoy, I notice you recently uploaded a piece of Zero Two fan art and put it on the page. This is not allowed, as only official artwork or in-game material is allowed to be used on content pages. You are allowed to upload fan art as a personal image, but only if you have the consent of whoever created that art. Just keep that in mind going forward. --Fubaka (talk) 18:08, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

Use of upscaled images[edit]

Hoy again. I notice you've been uploading upscales recently. As I told iliekchez, we have not officially condoned the use of upscales as frontline content as of yet, so I would refrain from uploading any more until the referendum is settled. I understand there's been some inconsistency in that regard on the wiki, but we've been following these sorts of image standards more recently, and as part of that, I've been going around and replacing some of the old inflated images I uploaded way back when. If you are unsure about the current image policy, please check out this page for details. Cheers. --Fubaka (talk) 14:40, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Regarding your Void image upload[edit]

Hoy Kirby201. I'd like to know how/where specifically you got the image File:Void.png. It doesn't quite look right to me, and I suspect it may not actually be from the game. Did you capture it yourself, and if so, will you show me the source image? --Fubaka (talk) 15:31, 22 November 2019 (UTC)

I did capture it from the game and imported it onto my laptop, but the eyes looked so blurry, I modified it a bit. If that's against the image policy, then my apologies. I do, however, have the original image:

File:Void.png|The slightly modified one. File:Uoid.png|The original one. Thanks for understanding. Kirby201 (talk) 01:11, 23 November 2019 (UTC)

I'm guessing what you did was take a screenshot directly from the game, and then crop out the rest of the scene. If that's the case, then I would suggest not doing that in future, and just upload the whole scene as is. Also, it still looks like you captured it at an artificially inflated resolution, which is also not ideal for frontline imagery. --Fubaka (talk) 09:21, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
I got it directly from my Switch. It was 1080p, which when close up, looks blurry. And also, I will stop cropping out images. Thanks for the tip. Kirby201 (talk) 09:26, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
I see. Screenshots are always an iffy subject, and even direct captures can end up being an issue (see my woes with Kirby's Epic Yarn at 1080p for details on that). That said, Star Allies is a bit of a blurry game in general (I think it's the rendering engine that does that), so probably best to just keep the images as is. It's more about authenticity than anything, which is why we use the unmodified splash screens for the Void boss infoboxes. --Fubaka (talk) 09:38, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks! Kirby201 (talk) 09:40, 23 November 2019 (UTC)

Use of upscaled images deux[edit]

Hoy Kirby201. I've mentioned this to you before, but I would really prefer if you did not upload massive upscales of game screenshots, especially if they are going to end up blurry like File:AA.png is. Even if Option 1 were to win the referendum, this would still not be acceptable quality. Also, your file names are too nondescript. "AA" doesn't necessarily mean anything on its own, so I would prefer if you used a more full name for images you upload. --Fubaka (talk) 15:12, 26 November 2019 (UTC)

That image was of native quality! I got it at native resolution on my emulator! Even if it wasn't, I would quickly replace the image! And I will also make full and proper names. And if it wasn't native, please find one, as my emulator's resolution is kinda glitching and my native 240p may NOT always be accurate. Thanks.Kirby Allies.png201 09:58, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
Native resolution for the Nintendo 3DS is 400x240. If your emulator cannot make the game look the way it does on the 3DS, than you ought to find a way to fix that, or get a different one. As it stands, we do have a couple of users here who may be able to help you out. I would suggest talking to Former Patroller or Iliekchez, as both of them are capable of obtaining native res screenshots on the 3DS. --Fubaka (talk) 12:45, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
I reinstalled the emulator. Mine was old, and the new one fixed the bugs So I reu-ploaded the image at 240p. Thanks! Kirby Allies.png201 12:54, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
