Please prefix fanmade images, such as the one you uploaded of Cadance's cutie mark, with the word FANMADE, and please do not add them to mainspace pages. Thanks! --Kinrah 19:05, June 4, 2012 (UTC)
- Otherside, please take note that fanmade images should not be added to the main namespace, even though it's just a vector. Yes, the name's been fixed, but it's still fanmade. Vely►Talk►Email 22:34, June 4, 2012 (UTC)
I hate you guys!
- It's a site rule; no need for hate. It's just a wiki, after all. Vely►Talk►Email 00:02, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
- They are not aiming to make you hate them, they are only trying to help maintain the wiki at the standard that it is known for. Fanmade images did not come from the show, and therefore are not official material. This wiki is centralized around official material, and therefore non-official material is not allowed on the main namespace. If you can find a good shot of Princess Cadance in the show to crop out her cutie mark, it will be allowed to stay on the wiki and main namespace. Sorry if you got the wrong impression.

They didn't have rules like these in the other wikias.
- You are free to leave this wikia at any time. Otherwise, please follow the rules. Ignoring the rules may result in a block.Teyandee (Talk) 16:48, June 6, 2012 (UTC)
Everytime I posted a comment about nice suggestions to the show, they're hardly ever answered. What do people have against MY comments?
- I really got a kick out of reading your blog post. Please write more! –Throwawaytv 07:07, June 25, 2012 (UTC)
Please, when adding fanmade images to the wiki remember to add the prefix "FANMADE" to the file name prior to uploading. I noticed you have been warned before about this. Any more offenses will most likely result in a block. Thanks17:51, January 17, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for trying to help, but we leave the full set of tables for any character that uses them. Please don't remove them, even if the character did not appear in that season. Thanks,
- Not for nothing -- I understood what you were going for with the Characters listing -- but that's what the Appearances tables and Character appearances page are for. Thanks! 18:58, September 28, 2013 (UTC)
Please be careful; this is your third reminder to add "FANMADE " to the beginning of file names of fanmade images. If you use Special:Upload, you can add the "FANMADE " prefix in Destination filename without having to alter the file name on your computer. Summary and Licensing are optional, and Categories (+) allows you to add the "Fanmade images" category, which is also required of fanmade images. Thanks, 03:32, August 12, 2013 (UTC)
Please do not make the same comment if it has already been deleted, thank you for your co-operation.

- Because they count as spam, please cooperate and don't repeat the comment that was deleted, thanks again. 17:58, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
When uploading screencaps of episodes to the wiki, please try to upload 1280×720 images with the highest possible quality. In addition: after uploading, you should make sure to apply the appropriate categories to the image (like Twilight Sparkle images, for example). Thanks, TheUltimateH4M Talk 19:45, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
- Try to use a higher-quality source for capturing screenshots. Your image uploads are so blurry, they appear upscaled. Also remember to properly categorize your uploads on the file page, like I've done with your most recent upload. 16:56, September 3, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry. I'll try to capture a wider video next time. User:Otherside86/sig 10:12, September 3, 2014 (UTC)
Do you take small screenshots and then enlarge them? I strongly advise against that, because the images always come out blurry. 19:33, November 8, 2014 (UTC)
I really should quit while I'm stll ahead now, should I?
How do you change the quality of the images? I use paint.net.
Can you take care of these images? They keep popping up in Derpibooru.org, and I think they should be in the gallery.
- They don't need to be added if they're already there in higher quality. As for "changing the quality of the images", they don't need to be altered in any way if they're from a HQ video source. If they've been altered through image software, then they're technically fanmade. 08:03, December 21, 2014 (UTC)
When you're uploading files, please be sure to give them descriptive names.
Also, I would advise against adding those leaked images to character galleries for the time being -- until they're properly sourced. Thank you. 03:46, November 22, 2013 (UTC)
- Please note that, for the sake of consistency, file extensions for uploaded files should be lowercase (.png as opposed to .PNG). Thank you. 18:42, June 30, 2014 (UTC)
hi what up. (scoot)
To Scoot: You called me on my Talk Page? (Side)
People are making my pictures look better. How are they doing that?
- If the files are saved with a .PNG file extension, you can easily change it to .png in the "Filename" text box when you're uploading. 20:03, June 30, 2014 (UTC)
Regarding the easter egg
Season 4 galleries
Before you plan on doing any mass image moving, best leave it to a bot. It's a lot of images to relocate, and we don't want to crowd the Recent Wiki Activity page. (Plus, it'll prevent pagename misspellings.) 16:35, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
I'll try to remember that.
When you're editing gallery pages, try to keep formatting consistent with the rest of the page, such as two line breaks between each section (like I've done here). Thanks. 17:53, July 17, 2014 (UTC)
I know you don't like bad quality picture. But I found this image and thought I'd enlarge it and add it.
Sorry about that.
- Once again, I strongly advise you not to upscale your screencaps. If the image captures are in 360p or 480p, for example, and you enlarge them to 720p, they'll always come out blurry and in low quality. Such images will only end up having to be replaced or updated. 16:55, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
- In addition to that, be sure to categorize the images you upload to the categories in which they belong to. For example, if a certain image is taken from Rainbow Rocks and has the characters Aria Blaze, Adagio Dazzle, and Sonata Dusk, add the categories Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks images, Aria Blaze images, Adagio Dazzle images, and Sonata Dusk images to it. 17:02, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
Don't tell other users to "shut up". That's not polite. 16:36, February 21, 2015 (UTC)
- It's rude to scoff at another's opinions or arguments. It's even ruder to imply that another is ignorant about a certain subject. Mind your manners. 03:24, March 30, 2015 (UTC)
Try not to upload duplicate videos of those you've already uploaded. A video only ever needs to be uploaded to the Wiki once. 03:44, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
