Also note that sometimes images won't update immediately. Clear your cache. If it still hasn't changed, just wait it out. It's in the system - it just hasn't had time to update. This is an important note to keep in mind when replacing images.
When you say your "updating" a picture, are you saying that we should replace all the street and building pictures if they're a year old? (I hope not. That sounds like a lot of work. :P) Hoping you have different reasons for this.
Personally, I like my old pictures a little bit better. You could see the top and bottom of the tunnel, and it had some screenshot metadata. (Seems like the words on the sign are a bit clearer in your pictures though.)
By the way, I really like the picture change on the Clerk Clara Page. Was a little weird to have her talking in that last picture. Nice job with that one. :)
I think he just meant that he was replacing all those pictures with better quality. If you liked your pictures a little bit better, do you think you could upload png pictures with metadata? We don't necessarily always need png pictures, but quite a few jpg pictures on several articles don't look that great.
The whole point of the metadata saying what District, Zone, and version of TTR I was running was to prove my picture was legit in less than 12,000 characters. And TTR hasn't had the ability to take PNG "screenshots" (with the F9 button) since Alpha when they tried it, something went wrong, and they stopped it.
I was just updating pictures so that they can be clearer and easier to focus on what the article is about. I changed some pictures because I would like the articles to have a nice and clean quality image to go along with it. I apologize if if this is a problem and will stop doing it if thats the case.
I guess it's not a problem, but I was worried it was going to become one. I didn't want to have to replace the super good pictures.
Now that you explained yourself, I feel like I snapped at you for almost no reason. Your Clerk Clara picture was better in almost every way, but the street pictures for the Brrrgh weren't like that. Some parts were better, some were worse. Plus, I consider that Polar Place picture one of MY first really great street pictures.
I think I'll put my picture back in the template, but make a new Gallery at the bottom of the pages for your pictures. Because those pictures are still pretty good, and you probably worked hard on them.
You COULD replace old pictures that aren't quite up to snuff, but I'm pretty sure there's still a lot of building pages without any pictures at all.
By the way, full screen pictures would be nice in a gallery section, but it isn't always the best in templates. Take a look at Affordable Goosebumps (I took the picture for it), and then take a look at Fisherman Nutty (I took a picture, then X Jumper took a better one). Buildings and fishermen just have different needs.
The size ratio of buildings and shopkeeper pictures that I take resemble a square kinda, but if I take pictures of Fishermen, it'll resemble a rectangle. I would make the size ratio like Jumper's Fisherman Nutty picture, except bigger. As big as I can get it.
I keep saying "size ratio" because I forget if there's a real word for that. :P I guess this size ratio isn't mandatory, but every little bit helps.
By the way, I know I said I didn't like the idea of redoing all the good pictures... But then there's the Toontown Retextured Project. Boy, talk about disruptive technology! I think it would be worth taking secondary pictures for this. I'd still want to keep the old "Nostalgic" Pictures, but the new ones will probably look super awesome! (Wonder how this is going to work in the Wiki...)
I guess I can see that. Especially with the light posts on the older Polar Place picture.
Alright, I put my old pictures at the bottom of the Pages. After reading Bermuda's comment, I think the Page actually looks better than it did before your pictures were in the templates. Thanks for adding them to the Wiki. :)
I noticed you updated the pictures in some of the Cog templates, and that's cool, but when you do that, could you please move the old picture to the Gallery section?
Doomsday pictures are hard to come by, and I'm assuming the picture in the template is the best one we had on hand at the time.
You did it with the Yesman and Flunky Pages, but I've already gone back and re-added the pictures. I didn't do this with the Pencil Pusher picture though because it's called "Toontown_Online_Pencil_Pusher.png". Very suspicious... I'll have to look into that later. (Though, it DOES look nice to just have a picture of a Cog standing. Spices things up a little.)
As always, thanks for updating our pictures. Your new ones look nice. :)
By the way, that "Toontown_Online_Pencil_Pusher.png" image you replaced was taken from another Wiki. You guessed it, the YouTube Wiki. (wait, what? lol) There, it's called "Toontown Online Pencil Pusher.png" too.
The "Toontown United" Wiki (guess that's a new Wiki) has a similar picture called "Pencilpusheridle.png", but it's bigger, has more blank white space, and he doesn't have the Bossbot symbol on his chest.
The YouTube Wiki got it in 2012, the Toontown United Wiki got a look-alike in 2014, and our Toontown Rewritten Wiki got it in 2015.
