::::::Why are you only focusing on sprites? Move animations, for starters, need to be animated and WebM is a perfect and interoperable solution. Audio would also be a welcome addition since you might as well let people listen to the animation if they're going to watch it anyway.
::::::Converting the sprites from GIF to APNG was and ''is'' a mistake. [[User:SatoMew2|SatoMew2]] ([[User talk:SatoMew2|talk]]) 18:47, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
 
== Regarding Gen VII sprites ==
 
When we add the Gen VII sprites, will we add their Pokédex sprites, or screenshots of the models like we did for XY? --[[User:Celadonkey|Celadonkey]] ([[User talk:Celadonkey|talk]]) 16:05, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
 
== Using images (and information) from other fansites (most notably Serebii, but others too) ==
 
Why, exactly, do we have the policy that we're not allowed to do it? [[User:Dinosauramiable|Dinosauramiable]] ([[User talk:Dinosauramiable|talk]]) 22:07, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
:Because it's called stealing.--[[User:Force Fire|Force Fire]] ([[User talk:Force Fire|talk]]) 15:13, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
Please elabourate. If we couldn't get information or images from anyone else, the 'pedia, news, and Archives would all be empty, wouldn't they? [[User:Dinosauramiable|Dinosauramiable]] ([[User talk:Dinosauramiable|talk]]) 22:07, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
:Gathering information from other fan sites is stealing - taking credit for their hard work. Gathering information from official sources isn't stealing.--[[User:Force Fire|Force Fire]] ([[User talk:Force Fire|talk]]) 05:01, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
I still don't see the difference. Also, are all fan sites unreliable sources? [[User:Dinosauramiable|Dinosauramiable]] ([[User talk:Dinosauramiable|talk]]) 11:40, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
 
== Can we make episodes as screenshot categories? ==
 
Can we? I could not find any such category. I found one huge Category of Anime screenshots. It is unnavigable. Somebody might also duplicate screenshots if he doesn't know they are already uploaded.

== Autoconfirmation for longtime Bulbapedia members ==
 
I don't really understand why autoconfirmation is separate for the Archives and Bulbapedia. The autoconfirmation process is to ensure that the system does not get spammed or abused by new accounts. Why isn't it sufficient to be a longtime member of Bulbepedia? I've made tons of edits on the main Bulbapedia space. Why isn't that good enough?
 
If the answer is "we don't know how to combine autoconfirmation on Bulbapedia and Archives", then I can understand it. Otherwise, I just don't. There's very little to do here aside from uploading images. Essentially you're making new users jump through unnecessary hoops, just because they want to contribute to the project in some way.

:I have to apologize for being so confrontational here in this post. I felt it was a bit unfair that my edits on Bulbapedia would not count for proving that my account should be trusted enough to be allowed to upload. As it turns out I was wrong, and it is possible to get manually confirmed, which was done by an admin after I raised the point on the Discord. I do think it would be good if this possibility was listed on the FAQ. [[User:Dada|Dada]] ([[User talk:Dada|talk]]) 13:22, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
