  • Hey CaptainPhoenix, I noticed you edited your profile page with an updated screenshot world image. I wanted to let you know that you could have kept the file name the same and the image would have been replaced automatically with the updated version as well as prevented unnecessary files being leftover.

    Another benefit of keeping the file name the same and just updating the old image is that the wiki can provide a more detailed history of the file instead of attempting to track down changes made over time on the photo.

    I intend to delete the older image however, unless you want it to be preserved here but I would need a reason to have it be kept.

    • I actually intend to make a slideshow on my page showing the world "growing" over the weeks, so for now I'd prefer them both to be kept.

      I'll probably add it in in a few days after my world gains a few more structures if that's okay with you.

    • That's fine. If you want, add a description to the images if they arnt included on a page stating what you intended to use them for so they dont become deleted by myself as I tend to look at if the description of the image before deleting unused images.

  • Hello CaptainPhoenix,

    I was wondering about the file name system that you have been using when uploading files. In particular the "SS-" prefix found on quite a few of the files you have uploaded. What does this mean and why does it contain this prefix? I looked at a few and they appear to be in-game screenshots of the item/block/etc but I want to make sure. Another concern I had was about the files that contain only the item/block in question such as Birch Sapling.png. Those types of files should only be in a 16x16 pixel format to represent the smallest icon for them. Larger versions (150x150 pixels) should be marked as the name with " ig" before the extension (That is: a 150x150 picture of a Birch Sapling should be named "Birch Sapling ig.png" in this case). This is just a convention that has been established here on this wiki to allow better organization. Some of the wiki conventions or discussions are on the Forums. If you have any questions for me or about the conventions, either ask them here or in the appropriate topic in the Wiki Standards forum section.

    Thanks, and keep on editing!

    • One quick question, is there any preference for Fancy/Fast graphics for pictures?

        Loading editor
    • Imo fancy is better but really is no preference between the two. As long as there is no texture pack in use.
