Photos vs. stock images

I noticed you replaced a few photos with stock images. While stock images look nice, we prefer photos because they prove an item actually exists. A proper (unaltered) hi-res scan beats a photo of course. - Hivebrain (talk) 13:08, 1 March 2020 (EST)

Sonic Mix 3 single

Sorry if I had jumped the gun a bit with deleting the page. I hadn't know you were still working on it and assumed it was a duplicate of the album page rather than its own thing. --BSonirachi (talk) 12:48, 13 May 2020 (EDT)

Upload tagging

You've been supplying the Retro wikis with a lot of physical media scans, which is fantastic stuff, but can you please tag all your uploads by putting the appropriate tags here into the summary box? We ask that all files are categorised correctly to help with organisation, and that way, others (i.e. me) won't have to follow you around with a dustpan and brush. --BSonirachi (talk) 13:29, 7 November 2020 (EST)

Hello! i saw many people are just skipping the tag part, which is also very very stressfull when you have to upload many things. Since we -at least me- are unable to modify directly once the file is uploaded, the tag part is begain a very very stress thing, since system is also very lagging and very often something went wrong and you have to retry everything again. I'm understanding there is a system behind the tags and other stuffs about it... but understand who upload things(mostly me and hivebrain basically). I dont know about him, but will be hard to upload and put tags all over all the time, since the massive different consoles and language that we are talking about. If i can modify the tag AFTER the upload, i can easily make it by searching my uploaded file, that will be very very easy and helpfully(i didnt either tried if it's possible, so since im hit and run most of time, i will try later if i dont recive any reply in short time). Anyway, sorry about this, please understand the massive work behind it on searching, scanning and fixing things. Thanks <3 --Frozen (talk) 21:32, 7 November 2020 (EST)

No prob. If it helps to find the files you need to fix, try finding them under Special:RecentChanges (new files should be under "Upload log"). Files are also treated as pages, so usually there's an edit button for them. --BSonirachi (talk) 17:39, 7 November 2020 (EST)
nothing, i cant change the one that i have already uploaded. Seems only admins can do it. There is no way for getting those powers too just for the wikia? Will be easy repleace the missing tags.--Frozen (talk) 23
