Jacob image

That Jacob image does not get added to any page involving Jacob since he can have any look (skin, hair, eye and etc. color) depending on the player's looks. Unless it is of all skin colors at least, Jacob does not get an image. Andrewh7 (talk) 21:15, January 22, 2020 (UTC) Andrewh7

Image categories.

Hello, do make sure you always create a new category for a subject when inserting it into an image file, as you did not do so with your recent uploads from Harry Potter: Magic Awakened. Kind regards. --RedWizard98 (talk) 05:39, February 16, 2020 (UTC)

I don't want to come across as mean in any way, but there was not much need to create a separate image category for Lovebirds, considering how "Images of Birds" already exists and this incorporates all images of non-magical birds already. You should also use the plural when referring to entities as a group. Thanks. --RedWizard98 (talk) 17:17, February 16, 2020 (UTC)


Hello Гилли,
I noticed that you added the last name "Alves" to the description of this image. Please do not add this as the last name for Alanza (the Castelobruxo student), as there is no proof from canon yet that this is her last name.
Thanks, stay safe and healthy,

Sorry for last message, as I believed it was you who had added a false fact about Rolanda Hooch in her article, but upon checking the page's history that was not the case. Kind regards and good luck editing. --RedWizard98 (talk) 14:12, May 14, 2020 (UTC)

Image Summaries

Hi there - the new Phoenix Patronus is pretty neat! Please be sure to add a Summary block with details about its source and license and such.

Thanks! --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:08, July 7, 2020 (UTC)

Well done

I have to say, keep up with the brilliant image uploads from Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, you are doing a great job of it, so well done from me. --RedWizard98 (talk) 20:15, July 10, 2020 (UTC)

WU Image re-uploads

Hi there, I've noticed that you are uploading lots of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite images, including ones that I have previously uploaded a while back. I'm just curious as to why you are doing this? I would also keep images that are labelled with the Wizards Unite caption only under "Behind the scenes" as this is an out of universe reference that does not belong in an article's main text. Kind regards --RedWizard98 (talk) 15:44, July 16, 2020 (UTC)

I'm wondering if it wouldn't be helpful to have a /Gallery subpage for images from this game which could be organized into characters, creatures, ingredients, etc to serve as an easy place to check what we already have before uploading new images? While everyone can always check Category:Images from Harry Potter: Wizards Unite this list isn't organized at all and get tricky to review as we get many hundreds of images. This is probably a bigger discussion needed beyond these personal Talk pages, but something to consider for now. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:11, July 16, 2020 (UTC)
Hi there, since there are three people involved, I figured I'd just reply on the one User Talk page people initially commented on. I'll admit, when first glancing the text, I dreaded this to be a dupe image problem. Upon actually checking the issue, I became confused because I didn't see any dupes (and thought perhaps it was too early for me to be observant.) That was when I really reread the messages lol. My bad. @RedWizard98, while I can't speak for Гилли, to me personally, the reason of the replacements is quite obvious: The re-uploads are of higher quality.

File:ParvatiPatilWU.png set as width 74px

Take File:ParvatiPatilWU.png for example: the dimensions of yours and Гилли's are respectively 74 × 220 and 337 × 1,004; I checked a few others and they are in the same situation. And it's not just blowing up the image, like, the details are clear so that enlarging the images actually enable people to see more clearly. Had it been your original upload (still using Parvati as an example; clicking the image thumbnail would just give the viewer the same size, one might as well not click at all.)
That's my read on the matter. When there's higher quality available, that's mostly preferable, as seen at Harry Potter Wiki:Image policy. Гилли did a great job by tracking down the ones already uploaded to be replaced, rather than uploading them as separate files which would result in merges or deletions, depending on who took care of the matter. Thanks Гилли!
@Ironyak1, gallery subpages is an approach worth discussing (I do have concerns about it, but that would stray too far from this particular incident.) I think bringing it up was actually one of the reasons why I assumed there were dupes in this situation lol. While thankfully there's not, I understand taking the initiative, and would def. join the discussion should it happen (be it at a new Forum thread or a new CAT Talk page of Category:Galleries.)
@RedWizard98, if you still have more questions to the explanation, or that I'm completely misreading your question and not answering them at all, whelp, thanks for reading all this and hopefully we'll hear from Гилли later! =D --Sammm✦✧(talk) 01:24, July 17, 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for looking closer at this Sammm鯊! I admit that I read "ones previously uploaded" and immediately thought of duplicates, so my bad for misleading about the situation. Nonetheless, a gallery is still tempting to me so that images from WU that have been uploaded but have not found their way to an article yet such as this one aren't seen as expendable and cleaned-up (is my paranoia showing? ;) I'll put something together for Category_talk: Galleries at some point in the not too distant future. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 02:07, July 17, 2020 (UTC)

I've also noticed the files you are uploading are huge in size and these images take up far too much room in articles than needed. Images should always be of a suitable size. In fact, I'm going to re-upload the said images myself simply to shrink them down to a suitable size.--RedWizard98 (talk) 02:16, July 17, 2020 (UTC)

Good day to all! First, I would like to apologize for not participating in the discussion. It's difficult for me, because English is not my native language. However, I attentively read and take note of all recommendation. As for re-uploads images: yes, I am guided by the higher quality. Too large size on the page can be changed using "px". Now about the gallery. At the moment I am making a "Registry", new article, which will present all the images of the Foundables and their description. In my profile you can see how it will be look. --Гилли (talk) 06:17, July 17, 2020 (UTC)

Cases from the Wizarding World character images

Do you have/can get images for the other characters from Fantastic Beasts: Cases from the Wizarding World such as Veronica Vexmoor and etc. like you did with the Cordelia Vexmoor image? Andrewh7 (talk) 19:01, July 17, 2020 (UTC) Andrewh7

Yule Ball

Hi, the category "Images of the Yule Ball" is for images that actually depict the event taking place, not images of characters in Yule Ball dress or objects related to the ball. Thanks --RedWizard98 (talk) 22:50, July 19, 2020 (UTC)

Great Job on Wizards Unite!

Nice work with all the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite images and the Registry! A solid job all around and lots of useful material that can be added on many, many articles! Here's a little sign of appreciation on behalf of the community.

Ironyak1 has awarded you a Prefect Badge!
For diving head first into the Calamity and returning with many goodies to share!

Congrats & keep up the great work! --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:28, July 22, 2020 (UTC)

Alphabetical order

Images of the Ministry of Magic

This category only applies to actual depictions of the Ministry as a physical location, not an emblem or logo of it. I hope this helps --RedWizard98 (talk) 16:34, August 2, 2020 (UTC)

Where did you get the WU images?

basically title. Where did you get them? MechQueste 17:38, September 3, 2020 (UTC)

Ah ok. thanks. I had stumbled upon it once before but I didnt find my way back. Now, I wanted to ask, did you upload any image from the potions list or the Foundables? If not, I would like to help uploading them. MechQueste 13:47, September 4, 2020 (UTC)
I have finished the Potions list. MechQueste 01:01, September 6, 2020 (UTC)
One question, where did you get File:Magizoologist Protego Power WU.png? MechQueste 13:16, September 22, 2020 (UTC)
If you had not uploaded any images from this category and this category, and their subcateogries, I will upload them. MechQueste 01:00, September 23, 2020 (UTC)
