Hello wiki editors. I'm Takashichea, you may have received comments or PMs from me regarding your image submissions.

These past few months, I have been deleting duplicate images in the character galleries for various wiki projects that I worked on because the majority of images have not been transferred from episode galleries to character galleries. It's my fault for not putting the time to completely transfer the images.

It's been tedious to spend at least an hour each week checking and deleting images.

I'm going to list the wiki projects that I worked off. I'm not being territorial with the wiki pages, but I want to inform you which anime series has pages of episode screenshots that I uploaded.

Despite I'm not a mod, I want to ask all of you wiki editors to add screenshots first to the episode galleries then the character galleries if possible. It makes life easier when images are organized.

@takashichea: ...or Eyecatch galleries. Right?

@bigz007:

Eyecatches should be in the episode galleries if possible to prevent dupes.

@bigz007: @takashichea: Actually, I would prefer to see eyecatches in a separate gallery, not the episode galleries. Just make a gallery on the anime series page called "Eyecatches" and "End Cards" if a series has those.

@Daniel_Newton:

Okay, it sounds like a good idea. Makes it easier to find instead of going through screenshots.

@Daniel_Newton:

So we should avoid uploading eyecatches in to the episode galleries? I already uploaded tons of eyecatches, especially in Bleach episode galleries.

@bigz007:

It's okay to have the eyecatches in the episode gallery, the anime's eyecatch gallery, and the eyecatch gallery.

I generally avoid it but it's okay if you have, I would just prioritise putting them in an "Eyecatches" gallery. Also, are you sure you're not talking about episode title cards (where it says "Bleach #145" or whatever at the beginning) because those aren't the same thing as eyecatches. I would put those in a gallery called "Title Cards" (and try to put them in chronological order).

Some people like to set them as the main image for each episode.

@Daniel_Newton: I was told that those are eyecatches and that I should upload them to Eyecatch galleries too.

@bigz007: Technically they're separate things. Here are the TV Tropes pages for Eye Catch and Episode Title Card. They are similar though so it's understandable. We should make a concept called Episode Title Card and add those images there instead.

@Daniel_Newton:

Oh, that was me who told Bigz007. I didn't know what do with those images and thought they might fit in the eyecatch gallery.

When you say dupes, are you referring to images uploaded multiple times or one upload tagged to multiple galleries?

@sickVisionz:

Sorry, I wasn't clear. The situation is I upload episode screenshots in episode gallery. From time to time, I see someone else upload the same screenshots in the character galleries. I haven't transfer episode screenshots to the characters, and I have to delete the dupes after transferring my screenshots.

Since I became a mod this month, I have access to the image queue. The key to wiki projects is coordination. With limited time, I can't deal with multiple projects and transfer/delete dupes.

I will call the following editors that I need to speak with.

  • - If you're are interested in uploading Legend of Korra shots, you have to coordinate with me and divide the episodes. I just finished Ep. 13 while finished Ep. 14. Also, don't forget to upload these 3 Korra shots I approved into the episode gallery. To make things easier, it is recommended to upload in the episode gallery then transfer to the character gallery.
  • - Have you talked with Daniel about the High School DxD images? I know you're behind. In case you forgot the link, here's Random Curiosity for High School DxD 1st season. I suggest that you should upload the episode screenshots first starting with episode 2 before transferring to the characters. I clean up Rias Gremory page of any unattached screenshots to give you a fresh start.

Might want to change that bit. :P
