Currently, the only way to get game images is by using a capture card, which seems to result in poor quality images being added. This could be rectified if people used emulators instead to get a more smoother image (eg PCSX2 and all that) although the wiki may not want to do this. Thoughts ? --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 18:21, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

Poor quality images are better than no images. — SimAnt 18:37, June 27, 2012 (UTC)
I agree with Simant. And no, I would very much like to avoid the use of emulators.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 20:59, June 27, 2012 (UTC)
What are emulators? -White Flash-(Talk)- 21:02, June 27, 2012 (UTC)
@Simant/TU3: There's a difference between "poor quality images" and "images that are so blurred the depiction can't be seen." (example: an image where the depiction is so blurred that all you see is a motion blur of colour)

If they are low quality, replace them with high quality if possible. Until then, they don't break copyright or any of that jazz and nobody else is is seriously trying to bring the game jutsus up to par with the canon ones, so this is as good a start as any.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 21:41, June 27, 2012 (UTC)
I'm not saying they break copyright. I'm saying that they can be MUCH better than the crap that's being uploaded lately for game techniques and I don't have the time nor the damn patience with some wiki users to be wasting time running after everyone else fixing crap images. I'm not trying to be insulting, but some of these recent uploads are really quite rubbish and shouldn't have been uploaded at all. The uploader page also says this: Causing the wiki to much trouble with bad uploads could get you blocked. Some of the latest uploads are bad uploads that are of such bad quality they are useless, but I refer to my first point in this message. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 21:50, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

The fact that he is still capable of uploading despite my lurking all day means I'm fine with the images. You just said, you aren't going to make the effort with the pictures (and by extension, the game jutsu articles) so what he does should not offend you. We have maybe 100+ game jutsu that have no image, and are generally crap articles that can only be found if you are looking for them as they are not linked in the character articles. Good quality or not, someone actually making the effort to bring them up to par is a-okay in my book.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 21:52, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

I would've done if I got a better capture device actually, so I wouldn't be making such an assumption like that. I also said I wouldn't be running after people updating their crap images, not that I wouldn't actually upload the images. :/
I'm not offended by the images, I'm merely saying that it might be annoying people.
And does it matter if the game jutsu articles have no image? Just like in every other article, if there's no good image found, then none is added, simple as that. Why would the game jutsu articles be any different? --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 21:56, June 27, 2012 (UTC)
