Forums: Index Narutopedia Discussion Purpose of Image Tags and Characters in image templates ?
Note: This topic has been unedited for 844 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.


Apart from a couple of users who have used {{Image tags}} and {{Characters in image}}, what is the real purpose of these tags? Hardly any uploaders these days use them, one or two users back in the day did use them but nobody really uses them. I'm voting for the removal of these templates that almost nobody actually adds. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 16:28, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

You click them and they carry you to a list of images with these persons tagged in them.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 16:36, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

And that's useful how ? You can just manually add the categories and I doubt anyone goes to those categories of "Images containing the character X" --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 16:39, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

Firstly, not because you believe something to have no use, means it necessarily has no use. Now, I've used that function in the past to find images of the said tagged persons to add to their articles. With some file names that do not have the person's own name in it, it's a convenient way to find older images. Kitsune added the tags to the image, and for all you know it served a purpose to that user but you removed it citing that you hate those templates. It's not hurting anyone else to let them alone, so bear up your hatred of them.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 18:09, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

*cough* I uploaded that image and I do not want those templates there because they are stupid and are not even required for uploads. Got a problem with that ? --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 18:11, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
Very well you uploaded the image to the wiki, I'm not going to go over the whole, "no one owns the images here" bit with you. I've already explained the use of the feature, all I ask is that you respect the fact that while you may not use the function there are others that do or might do so in the future.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 18:23, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
Rather than being arrogant and "stuck-up", why don't you try answering the question I asked ? Yes, fine they link to a page with other images, but you could do that without templates whatsoever. And count to me the number of people who put those templates on images. You don't use them yourself, nor does any other person who uploads. One person adding the tags on one image I uploaded doesn't indicate people use them. In fact, even people like Droidkaju don't use them. You are obviously not going to listen a single f'ing word I post anywhere on this wiki because you won't stop your arrogance and I am getting tired of it. Why is it that every time you tell me not to jump down other people's throats, you do EXACTLY the same to everything I post on this wiki ? Why don't you do me and everyone else a favour and back off for once. This wiki was peaceful while you weren't uploading and editing, so why don't you just keep it that way, instead of showing how antagonistic you are to other editors when you don't agree with them ? --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 18:29, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

Please don't make me treat you both like children and forbid you two from talking to each other. Now, according based on tests I just ran, yes the image tag does indeed link to image catagories of the characters listed, so yes they do indeed serve a purpose. While it is odd to have mention of the characters twice, we got a link to the categories, they are legit, and completely useful templates. Hell they do us a great service they should probably be added to all current and future images.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 19:22, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

Do it, I've had enough of the arguments Cerez causes with me. Every time I try to bring up discussion he creates a war out of it. Notice how the times Cerez is NOT here that everything is quiet and the minute he shows up, all hell breaks loose ?

And you can't just do [[Category:Name of the category]] manually without having to be lazy and using a template ? --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 20:11, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

So...why exactly should we do it manually, when we very well could just use the template which automatically sets it up o.O Why make the extra effort to do something when we already have something that does what we want? Templates exist so we don't have to do stuff. o.O
And you really don't want me to actually forbid you to do anything. Because my methods are more permanent, costly, and not fun. People need enemies. Peers keeps one in check and forces them to observe their own actions. I would be lost without ShounenSuki giving me hell away back when. (Titans I miss fighting with him every other week /cry). Anyway--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 20:22, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

I don't want to talk to Cerez or have him talk to me in any form. Any time he gets involved, there is always arguments and admin involvement (*cough* you *cough*) because he doesn't know when to keep his nose out of things that don't concern him. Other editors believe him to be way too arrogant and overbearing and it's slightly annoying when a wiki has users like this. Again, have you noticed how, in the last 5 days, there has been no problems between me and Cerez because he wasn't here. The minute he shows up, the messages above occur. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 20:26, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry if this post doesn't turn out properly, I'm not exactly using a pc. Firstly, Speysider, I wasn't trying to sound stuck-up so I'm sorry if you interpreted it that way. I was going for neutral so as to avoid the argument that apparently ensued. Secondly Ulti, I'm sorry that you have to mediate so many of these petty things that get blown out of proportion. Now to answer your question that I overlooked Speysider: I simply didn't know that there was any other way to search and or group the images.

Now for the other stuff such as there being a problem when I'm here with user Speysider, I think that's because I have a shorter fuse when I see stuff like the incessant use of expletives you display on a wiki where children and conservative people are, the bullying of Droidkaju for example and the whole video game images issue, and removing using templates like the "character in images" for something like "widescreen" which doesn't seem like it'll ever serve a purpose (but that's just my opinion) and going further, they are left uncheck and most time than not turn out to be hinderances to the wiki's progress. If Speysider doesn't want to have contact with me that's fine. Now I hope none of this will be taken in the wrong way, because this is the last of it for me, I've already asked to let the templates alone unless there's another option.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 21:01, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

the incessant use of expletives you display on a wiki

Naruto is a series that you need to be at least 12 to watch, in most cases 15 because it also contains expletives. And most people start swearing around 13 or 14 because they hear it from others. So my use of expletives isn't a reason.

where children and conservative people are

See above.

the bullying of Droidkaju

I do not bully him. I give him advice and he ignores it. In one case, you used a rather insulting edit summary as though you think I jump down everyone's throats, when I give plenty of chances to users.

for something like "widescreen"

Do you know what that is for? Try reading the template page: {{Widescreen}}

which doesn't seem like it'll ever serve a purpose (but that's just my opinion)

See above.

they are left uncheck and most time than not turn out to be hinderances to the wiki's progress.

Excuse me, but how is a template such as Widescreen hindering the progress of this wiki? I think it's better to say your attitude to when I upload a 1080p image is more a hindrance than the use of a template intended for the purpose of tagging images for reupload if they are in the wrong ratio (3 of your uploads from the episode where Darui prepares to fight Kinkaku and Ginkaku is a PRIME example of the usage of that template).

Something to mull over me thinks Cerez. Rather than faulting others, consider yourself as well. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 21:08, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

And if nobody is using them, and I know they damn sure aren't using the Categories one, we should push for using the template.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 21:10, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
Now in order of what was posted, because the last line nudged me and thus gave me interest (which will only lead to bad things)
Swearing. Should avoid it. Don't care about what people believe is the "right" time to swear and what not. If people aren't comfortable their opinions should be respected. I am well aware I fail at this at time but...yeah. Lessons are ment to be learned.
Bullying. Yeah. You do it. We've been over this before, and it's the reason I watch everything you do. Unlike Cerez I sit silently until it becomes a crisis. Cerez has less restraint than I do. That is probably a good thing.
You can't say that the Image Tag template serves no purpose then in the same discussion say that your widesreen template does. I personally think the widescreen template is ass pointless and only serves to increase the e-peen of those who can upload widescreen, and I have so far only seen you use it. And yet, it stays.

You have provided Cerez numerous reasons to examine himself and I hope he does so. But I want you to examine yourself and ask yourself why I am always talking to you.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 21:22, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

EDIT CONFLICT: @Speysider: Image tags have been present for a very long time. Concerning the image uploaders can you specify the ones who are not using either one of the templates mentioned in the dispute(Can't find them in the last month, except you)? --Vecanoi (talk) 21:25, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

@TheUltimate3

Yeah. You do it.

And I'll repeat myself. No I do not bully people. You are just looking for a reason to come down hard on my style. Live with it. Stop hounding me.

That is NOT the point of that template. lrn2read. It is there when an image is in the WRONG ratio! That applies in both original AND shippuden. For example, I have sent a lot of uploads from User:Mutant 16 from the original series that are all in Widescreen which is an incorrect ratio. I would well advise you stop hounding me about image uploads when, you yourself, do not upload ANYTHING to this wiki. I have never seen you use the upload system at all. So yeah.

@Vecanoi: The templates have existed for ages, but they have never been used. One user (see above) has used the tags, but they are never used on any uploads these days. What else do you want me to say or do ? --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 21:27, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

How they have never been used, if you yourself use them? --Vecanoi (talk) 21:32, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
Excuse me, but I have NEVER USED those templates. Never. If you don't understand the situation, don't get involved. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 21:34, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
The reason you provide for the template does not concern me. Nor does it effect my judgement. As I have pointed out, the Template remains, when I could have said "Stuff it" and deleted it. The same reason why the Image Tag template isn't in any danger of not being used and as I said will probably be used more.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 21:35, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
Whatever. All this topic has shown is that two users cannot speak in a civil manner to me without starting needless arguments when they don't agree with what I say or when I ask a very basic question. I don't give a damn if you think I bully people because you are obviously blinded and I do not bully anyone. Anyway, I'm done with this topic, you can continue as much as you want but don't expect further responses from me. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 21:46, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

EDIT conflict:

It frightens me this was all an excuse for you to start another argument filled with anger, or (and) jealousy. Like that time with the widescreen shots, and the allowed, needed, and "obligatory" monitors. Studying your blinking screaming words it did not seem to me that you were working to achieve cooperation, and benefit to this encyclopedia regarding this needless topic. --Vecanoi (talk) 21:53, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

Last response from me. Vecanoi, I have no idea what your talking about, but your not helping the situation by posting things like that. I would advise you stay out of this issue because it involves a problem between me, TU3 and Cerez. Nobody else needs to get involved in something that they have no idea what they are talking about. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 21:59, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

As you wish. Last thing from me also: If this is between you it shouldn't be a forum message. You could have had your private conference anywhere using any type of numerous programs. If it's a forum message anyone is allowed to read and participate. --Vecanoi (talk) 22:06, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

How very mature of you Vecanoi. I like you lol.
Anyway, this has been derailed for far to long, so lets end it here. The Image Tag template not only stays but I actively encourage. And we now sit silently in quiet contemplation for the next inevitable battle.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 22:10, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
  • Firstly, can you provide source for your information on people and cursing, because that is absolute rubbish. There are people who do no curse and for that reason dub and censorship exists.
  • You need to be that age to use wiki, not read it Secondly when you add that widescreen template, how many of them have been replaced? how many of them do you forsee being replaced? why not simply replace them instead of adding that wordy template?

Any way, I suppose I should explain here finally:

  • Speysider, I have no issue with you uploading 1080p images to the wiki. What I had a problem with was you coming here and stating that you'd re-upload images in 1080p after others had already uploaded it and from what i've seen there is very little difference between the two versions. Other than that, I have no issue with you uploading 1080p images over poorer qualities one because that's bettering the wiki which shouldn't be a problem. So stop harping on it, it's a non-issue really.
  • As for the bullying I'd cite the messages you've left on the user's page, Ulti's page and most recently you accusing him/her of padding their edit count when they tried to dabble in rawing (I could be wrong I wasn't here for that) even though ¾ of the images uploaded by them are currently being used in articles.
  • I simply see no reason to be removing the template simply because you don't like it, when other people may use it and I'm just asking that it be let alone.

I'm not saying I'm faultless in anything but I can honestly say I came here with the full intention to speak civily to the editor, I wasn't the one that blazed up and started cursing people even an Admin who you claim doesn't use the upload function: if you go back to some of the earliest uploads you'll see Ulti there. People's contributions to the wiki change over time, doesn't mean they don't know how it works.

  • Also I'd like to point out to people that this is not an issue between three people, anyone can contribute we can all use the characters in image function, not just the three of us so there's no need, once again, to be rude to Vecanoi.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 22:16, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
You need to be that age to use wiki, not read it Secondly when you add that widescreen template, how many of them have been replaced? how many of them do you forsee being replaced? why not simply replace them instead of adding that wordy template?

I tagged them so that I could back and actually replace them. They're tagged so that a user can go and get the image in the proper aspect ratio. That's all I need to respond to from your lengthy message of rants. Anyway, let's stop here. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 22:21, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, but you have no statistics to show that the template has ever been of any use do you? But yet still these images are tagged for deletion because the ratio is wrong. You don't think your time would be spent more productively finding images with correct ratios such as the ones from the Hoshikage arc. That is what I don't get and mean by counter productive. If anything that is padding your edit count which you seem to detest so much.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 22:28, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
How is putting in a tag to inform the user the image is in an incorrect ratio edit count padding ? If anything, continuing this discussion is edit padding because TU3 has said to stop. Also, to answer your point, I have other things to be doing than uploading images to the wiki, there are many others who can do this, I am simply helping them to find images that need a fix to the ratio. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 22:32, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
Oh no. Please continue. /popcorn--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 23:27, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

Here is what I feel:

The Image Tags is really not required as it only gives a link of the character in the image which is already there (or has to be there) in the description.

But for the "Characters in image" template, it has a purpose and it categorises the image so that it can be found latter easily when required. If you want to use the template or enter the category manually, its your personal choise. UltimateSupreme2212-3.png(T@lk) 03:50, July 9, 2012 (UTC)

Cerez, I don't care what you say about having no problem with me uploading 1080p HD images. It is quite obvious you do not like them. For example, I added an image of Atsui nobody else had any problems with and then you came along, added an image and basically showed your hate against 1080p by saying this in the edit summary:
further back, less rectangular and he basically posed for this
ALL 1080p HD images are meant to be rectangular because they are widescreen! Seriously, can't you start a discussion on talkpages BEFORE YOU GO AND CHANGE THE DAMNED IMAGES I SPENT TIME OBTAINING! --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 14:01, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
