Uploading a New File

Hey OptimisticFool. I was wondering, how do I upload an file of an existing image. In other words, you uploaded a new file of a the New Years Eve clock from Homestar Presents: Presents. How do I do that? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 16:00, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

Below the file history on any image page (e.g. Image:homestarclock.png) is a link that says: "Upload a new version of this file". From there, upload as normal (just don't change the destination filename it fills in for you). That'll do it. OptimisticFool 16:04, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

sig a little to big

Hey Optimistic fool. I was reading my talk page, and i found out that your signature is a little bit to big. It has to be able to fit into
this box.

Here is your's:

as you can see, the chair is a little bit outisde the box. if you dicrease its size by a pixil, that will fix it. Slipknot6477 16:10, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Just like yours, my image is 20px high. Put yours in a box and you'll see what I mean. It's what the rules allow for. OptimisticFool 19:58, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
I just looked at it with magnification, actually, it IS outside the box, and yet, it actually IS still good. the box itself is broken, and is moving the image down by a pixel, hence, though it's not inside the box, it still FITS there. — Defender1031*Talk 20:56, 18 November 2007 (UTC)


Woah! How did you upload so many images at once!? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 21:58, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Tabbed browsing. OptimisticFool 22:00, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

DVD screenshot image format

Hey there, OptimisticFool — nice job uploading those images from Everything Else, Volume 3 — looking at some of them made me really hope I'm getting that DVD for Christmas!

One thing: DVD screenshots should be in PNG format. There's some debate right now about whether or not live-action toons should be in PNG format at HRWiki talk:Standards#Live action toon screenshots, so don't worry about the images I listed there for the time being, but the following images ought to be replaced with PNG counterparts:

I'm not saying you need to work on all of these (though you're welcome to if you feel like it), but just wanted to let you know for future reference and also so that you wouldn't be surprised if you see people replacing them. Thanks, Trey56 23:03, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm working on them. I don't want to lose "credit" for them, so I'll do all the re-uploading. Somehow I thought I remembered that DVD screenshots were supposed to be jpegs; I don't know how I got that idea into my head, though. OptimisticFool 00:33, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
Awesome, thanks :) Trey56 00:37, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
In case you're wondering, I am doing all new screenshots. I know it would be a mistake not to. OptimisticFool 00:38, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
Sweet, that's what I assumed. Trey56 00:39, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
Large and in charge, there they are. I'll start incorporating them into their pages. OptimisticFool 01:40, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
Done. OptimisticFool 02:29, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
Sweet, thanks. I've deleted the old version. Trey56 20:04, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Minor nitpicking

Hey OptimisticFool,

First of all, I wanted to say that I liked how you remade the Store Accessories page. It looks a lot more organized. However, I just wanted to remind you to be a little more careful when remaking an entire page, as some minor yet important elements can be lost. Even for small pages like that one, it's always good to break up the restyling into separate stages. Thanks for your time and hard work! --Stux 18:31, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Crumbs! You're right. You see, I copied all that to a subpage in my userspace, and (of course) didn't want that to be categorized. Then I just copied and pasted what I had on that page and we lost the category. I'll do better! (Oh, and speaking of nitpicking, it's not spelled "knitpicking". =] ) OptimisticFool 18:38, 8 December 2007 (UTC)
Nitpicking. Gotta practice that one. Thanks! --Stux 20:12, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Main toon/Main Page images

Hey there, OptimisticFool — nice choice of an image for nightlife! It's a good representative for the toon, and it's not too spoilery for the Main Page. One very small note: there are two ways to handle the rounded corners when cropping a fullscreen shot. The first is to leave out the rounded corners, and cut off some of the edges. The second way is to crop it so that the black corners remain, and replace those corners with the color of the nearby part of the image (for the most part, those regions are monochromatic). Current practice is to go with the latter for main images for toon articles and fullscreen shots that go on the Main Page. It's only a matter of pixels, but it's nice to have the full screen for those images. Just thought I'd let you know for future reference (I don't think it's even on HRWiki:Standards, so there's no reason you should've known). Hope that helps, Trey56 17:48, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I figured that out pretty quickly when you overwrote my image. Makes sense. Too bad I couldn't have been the one to overwrite it. Granted, I know that we wanted it on the main page and protected pretty quickly, but I'm pretty darn quick! Oh, well. My life ain't over. =] OptimisticFool 17:52, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
Sorry about that — there'll be many other opportunities! I know how you feel, though, as this happened to me too when I learned about the cropping thing. But that was before I got sick of manually keeping track of uploaded images :P Trey56 17:58, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

I gotta save my weird upload!

Hey there, OptimisticFool. I noticed that you said that you can get screenshots from any of the DVDs, and there is one image that I could like. It's from Accent: sometime during when SB screams that he has to save his weird accent. Thanks, Religious Corn   22:16, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

I uploaded Image:AccentPanic.png; it's a screenshot of Strong Bad at the peak of his panic. It's him saying "Waaah!" If you specifically want one from when he is saying the words "I gotta save my weird accent!" I can arrange for that, too. Let me know. OptimisticFool 00:49, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
