From Sega Retro


Heyo, I've been noticing you uploading a lot of screenshots, and we love new screenshots! Though, I do have a few things for you to keep in mind:

  • Can you tag your screenshots when uploading them, please? With a wiki this large, it's important that screenshots are tagged when uploaded. Screenshots that aren't tagged will be dumped here, and someone (i.e. me or Black Squirrel) has to go out of their way to add the tags manually. The list of image tags can be found here.
  • It would be a good idea to optimise your screenshots as well, to help cut down on server load. A few kilobytes shaved off may not sound like much, but it all adds up. You can find out more about it here.
  • If you're uploading screenshots of non-Sega versions of games (e.g. SNES or Game Boy), consider uploading them to Retro CDN instead. Any file uploaded there can be shared across here and the other Retro wikis. They might be useful for another wiki project one day!

Cheers! --SorachiJirachi (talk) 22:20, 8 March 2021 (EST)

Sup bud - Game Boy screenshots go on Retro CDN, otherwise they'll get lost in the bazillion files we have on this wiki -Black Squirrel (talk) 03:36, 4 May 2021 (EDT)

Back and forth edits

Hey, I've been noticing that you have made edits where you've added information related to in-game languages to game bobs, then took that information out. This normally wouldn't be a problem, except you've made many edits where you've repeatedly added and removed the same information over the last several weeks; once or twice for most pages, but for pages like Gain Ground and Gunstar Heroes you've edited those ones a lot.

Can you please stop doing that? All it does is flood the edit histories for these pages with pointless revisions. While this normally wouldn't bother common end users it's a headache when it comes to checking past revisions. --SorachiJirachi (talk) 00:34, 3 May 2021 (EDT)

I asked you politely to stop repeatedly adding/removing in-game language fields, and you're still doing it. Plus, I'm suspecting that these languages you add are false information (I checked Ristar and there are no French or German languages). Can you at least tell me here why you're doing these edits? If you ignore me and continue to do it, you will be blocked for a few days. --SorachiJirachi (talk) 19:24, 4 May 2021 (EDT)
To User: Alex ATcosta... You know English very well... so why you keep ignoring people?... seriously... what's your fucking problem?...--Asagoth (talk) 20:24, 4 May 2021 (EDT)

Some time off

Going to give you a couple of days off for repeatedly ignoring the suggestions of two sysops. You've made some great contributions, but if we're having to clear up after you every day, and you're not responding on your talk page, that's... less great.

Take this time to read all the messages above and work out how talk pages work, and we'll see you at the end of the week -Black Squirrel (talk) 03:37, 5 May 2021 (EDT)
