Uploading a Picture

Hey, welcome to the wiki! Glad to see you're eager to help out. Just so you know, sometimes the same picture is used in several places across the wiki, and it is often detrimental to change a picture in the file name; the effect could be good in some places and bad in others. On the left side of the screen, under the search box, there is a "toolbox" menu. If you would like to upload a different version of the existing picture, you can click on "Upload file" in that menu. That way you can change the name for the purpose, and the picture won't replace the existing picture everywhere that it doesn't need to be replaced. As for what you're working on right now, I think it's a good idea for the picture in Strong Bad Evolution to have a transparent background, so you can upload it there and just change the name on the page to which picture it uses. Thanks again for your help. The Knights Who Say Ni 00:33, 23 August 2018 (UTC)


I get that you think it's preferable to have transparent pictures, but I'm afraid your methods leave much to be desired, and you frequently leave artifacts of the backgrounds when you attempt to delete them. It's not Wiki custom to use transparent images in all cases anyway, so I must ask why you're so insistent upon it. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 14:08, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Please stop reverting these images without at least discussing it first. Edit warring is not to be tolerated on this Wiki. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 15:13, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

I Could Make Images Transparent, But No Reverting It Back To The Image With Background Or I Will Block You. --Gabrielfonseca2018 21:26, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

There's nothing wrong with having transparent images, it's just that they should have their own space; they shouldn't replace the images that have backgrounds. I told you in the above section how to give them their own space. Also, take a look at Special:ListGroupRights. As a new user, you fall under the category of "Users" (and "Autoconfirmed Users", I'm fairly certain). You certainly don't have the ability to block any other user, which does not come below the rank of administrator. Jay is an admin, and he can block people from editing, so, maybe don't say something like that to him. I'd advise you to read this. The wiki is a community effort. It'd be wiser to observe and figure out how things work around here rather than trying to push your way through. The Knights Who Say Ni 04:43, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
