Could ya' give me a hand
I would only ask this to an admin, and I want to know, what are the best sources for files? How do I upload a file, because when I try to upload a file, it says to see how to upload a file, go to the [[FAQ]]. But then it says see here, which is the exact same place I began with!

:Magnedeth probably won't be here to answer this, so I might as well provide a brief explanation.
:When you upload a file, you have a Destination Filename (what the image you are uploading will be called), a summary box, and a licensing box. In the summary box you enter a concise description of the image as well as any categories you want to tag the image with (e.g. [[:Category:Status ailments]], [[:Category:Pokémon Mystery Dungeon]]). If there is a set template for the summmary (e.g. {{template|Mv}}, {{template|anipng}}), then the categories will automatically be added. For the licensing, choose the tag which best fits the description of the image.
:The best sources for images are almost certainly scans, photographs, and the like taken or extracted by you. Failing that, you can use sources that are not copyrighted, although you should give credit if it doesn't say not to. DO NOT use other fansites like Serebii, unless it has been explicitly stated that they have given you permission to use them.
:I would also suggest not asking Magnedeth in the future, as he isn't very active on the archives. I would suggest asking staff members like {{u|Kogoro}} or {{u|Maverick Nate}}, as they are much more likely to provide a quicker answer. I'm not a staff member, but I can give you the basic information about this site.--[[User:Chalkwriter|<span style="color:green">Chalk</span>]][[User talk:Chalkwriter|<span style="color:red">writer</span>]] 20:44, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
