Regarding your edits...

Hi, I've noticed you've been making a lot of edits recently. While that isn't a bad thing in itself, many of these edits have noticeable grammar errors, including spaces before commas and broken fragments ("Engrish"). I'm not sure if English is your first language, but since this is an English-speaking site, we do expect articles to not have major errors. Please check some of the corrections I've made to your pages and try to improve your edits. Thanks. ---GerbilSoft (talk) 12:21, 23 April 2015 (CDT)

Also, on Seaside Hill (Sonic Generations), you removed the selectors for Classic/Modern screenshots. Please don't do that. (The JavaScript for this functionality is currently broken, but once it's restored, it'll work correctly.) ---GerbilSoft (talk) 12:25, 23 April 2015 (CDT)

And finally, when uploading images, make sure they're prefixed with the game abbreviation [and system if necessary] (e.g. SLW3DS Desert Ruins.png, not Desert Ruins.png). Also you may want to check out Sonic Retro:Screenshots, since many of the screenshots you uploaded are of poor quality and/or don't meet the guidelines. And be sure to include a template indicating the platform, e.g. {{PCSS}} or {{3DSSS}}. See Category:Image templates for the full list. We also generally frown upon taking watermarked images from other sites and uploading them as your own. ---GerbilSoft (talk) 12:44, 23 April 2015 (CDT)

Stop changing the Sonic Generations Omni screenshots to title cards.

Omni screenshots are supposed to be in-level screenshots. Changing them to title cards makes them redundant, since the level name is shown below the screenshot. ---GerbilSoft (talk) 14:21, 26 May 2015 (CDT)

How I spend songs to the site ?

I'm trying to move songs to the site but can not because they do not respond or do not play.


I haven't been keeping track which is why I haven't said this sooner - you've been uploading tons of files, which is fine, but can you perhaps categorise them?

{{WiiUSS|Sonic Lost World}}
{{360SS|Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed}}


The templates/categories may not exist (yet), but if the description field is left blank, it'll be dumped here and someone will have to edit each file individually.

We may also need to rename these files at a later date to something more... intelligent. Sonic Retro has never been good at enforcing this but the file name should look something like:

"<game name> <system> <region (doesn't apply for screenshots)> <description> .<file extension>"

The end goal will be to have full resolution screenshots in PNG format. Renaming the stuff you've already uploaded isn't a huge priority, but something to bare in mind if you upload something in the future -Black Squirrel (talk) 06:20, 3 April 2016 (CDT)

Hi, all right, I can change the names and classify them. Any problems can tell me.

Renaming files

Please don't rename any more files (unless absolutely necessary). It leaves behind redirects that I'll have to delete. Thanks. - Hivebrain (talk) 20:47, 25 July 2016 (CDT)
