=====I uploaded an image and added it over to Bulbapedia, but why isn't it showing up?=====
Bulbagarden runs on multiple servers. As such, some are not on the same server. This is the case for the Archives and Bulbapedia. Sometimes images do not show up on the site, even if they were uploaded here. Usually a hard refresh, dry edit, which is clicking the edit tab and saving the page without editing; or a purge, which can be done by clicking the clock at the top of the page; of the page will force the image to show up sometimes. Please don't upload the image more than once if it does not show up on Bulbapedia. To avoid running into this problem, it is best if youto upload the image before you link to it on Bulbapedia.
=====Why can't I upload over this file?=====
=====What are categories used for?=====
Categories allow for general organization of images. Images care categorized by certain ways, such as the Pokémon in the images, or if the images are of Nintendo or Game Freak staff. Categories also allow for searching for a certain kind of images by the category itself. For instance, by searching though "Category:Pikachu", one would find images of {{bpp|Pikachu}}.
=====Why are they important?=====
=====There isn't a need for an image, can I delete it?=====
Deleting images is an administrator and above tool. If a file should be deleted, you can place the {{template|delete}} template on the page, along with the reason for deletion, like <nowiki>{{delete|this is a duplicate image of [[:File:Example.jpg]]}}</nowiki>.
=====This file has a wrong name, how do I change it?=====
Moving files is a junior administrator and above tool. However, if a file does need to be changed, you can place the {{template|move}} template on the page, along with the new filename, like <nowiki>{{move|New filename}}</nowiki>. After an image is moved, an administrator will delete the redirect and remove the template.
=====Why do we use AniPNG instead of GIFs for animated sprites?=====
