More recent request

Would it be okay for us editors to carefully attempt to make high quality versions of these as accurately as possible, since they seem to be unavailable officially? -Novaster 10:29, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
I think we should start a discussion in the forums and see what the community says. --Clotho 01:44, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

New Sprite Gallery

Ah those galleries are a mess. I've put templated galleries on all the talk pages of sprites. -Novaster 21:17, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

They were just waiting there for files to be moved :3 -Novaster 21:17, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
And we're deciding what to do about overworld group pics, so they're not currently in the "gallery template." -Novaster 21:18, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Only a few more files to go, should be done in a few minutes! --Clotho 21:19, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Done! --Clotho 01:27, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Images down the road

Should we make a tag that says "this image is fine don't worry about copyright, confirmed by Wiki Admin" for future editors, so you or other GMs down the road don't have to go through them again in case overly concerned editors tag them again because they weren't paying attention to edit history? -Novaster 01:02, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Definitely not - there is a very limited way in which some copyrighted images may be used in wikis. The copyvio template should only be used when the source is found and the image is in fact a copyright violation under the terms of their license. There's a lot of information about the limited uses for non-free content here. As a rule of thumb we don't edit user pages (except our own) unless there's a blatant infringement of our terms or copyright laws. --Clotho 01:08, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Good to know. Just trying to reduce repeated workloads. Due to the IRS constantly on my back for an issue (on THEIR end) already years in the past, I'm very paranoid about legal issues :P -Novaster 01:16, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

I agree that we should be mindful about using copyrighted work! (I also just realized I didn't add the source for the images but at least we have most in the history). Because these are user pages, in some cases the use of images falls under fair use. It's not a blanket permission, however. --Clotho 01:25, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Moved Images

I neglected to tag this one: File:BattleSprite Drakon Gun Pup ultimates 1.png. Please move to "File:Battle Sprite-Drakon (Gun Pup) T3 A preview.png" I plan on uploading new versions of these sometime in the far future - they will look like the ones on the Maskeraith (Spiralhorn) page, full inspect window views so the size of the adorable things can be compared easily. But that's way down the road and such, for now, we need easy galleries to use for future sprites and images to show up, so these moves were much needed and appreciated. Thanks again! -Novaster 01:40, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Moved! The images look great, just be careful not to take on too many jobs :) --Clotho 01:43, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, that means a lot :) -Novaster 02:03, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Extremely Speedy Deletion

I was fooling around in a sandbox page I made here, but for some reason it doesn't register as a subpage. I'm done with it, could you delete this ASAP so it stops messing around with casual wiki searches? Thanks, --Novaster 14:22, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Done! --Clotho 16:50, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Gear Halo Stuff

My friend figured out a nice way to get images of the other gear halos, but we asked support about it and they said we shouldn't do it this way and they're sowwie. Could you take care of the ones I tagged? The regal, volcanic, and toasty were captured in-game, with regal/toasty from AH and volc from a user's trade window. So those can stay. :( -Novaster 17:38, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Replied here --Clotho 18:35, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Oh, just delete, since support said "you'll want to remove." -Novaster 20:32, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
