Replacing filesEdit

Please do not replace old files/images with different images, as you did to File:Thesims3-46-1-.jpg or File:8475180706 42149b3a1d z.jpg.

From the photos you've chosen to change, it appears as though you're trying to replace the cover pictures on The Sims 3 and The Sims 3: Island Paradise pages. However, instead of uploading over the photo used there, the better approach would be to upload a new photo to a different filename, then edit the template on the page to link to the new file. However, it's worth noting that all the TS2 and TS3 expansion packs have this cover template, so if you add logos to those two pages, you'll need to add logos to all the other expansion pack pages, which would be a substantial amount of work. -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 12:40, April 14, 2013 (UTC)

File namesEdit

We'd really appreciate it if you could rename your files into something more recognizable other than File:S3_626F60CE_90000003_728CB938811A05AD%%+THUM.png. After extracting those thumbnails, please rename them first. Nikel Talk Vote! 14:00, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry but I don't know what is the real name of those thumbnails, I will rename as fast as I can and i will find their names in TSR Workshop. Expect to me that I will upload thumbnails with good file names next time. TheSleepyhollow02 (talk) 08:11, July 1, 2013 (UTC)
They don't really have real names, apart from the instance names (like uuTattooEP10Mermaid for the mermaid tattoo). You don't have to find the real names, you just have to rename them to more recognizable names, like File:IP mermaid tattoo.png for example.
Anyway, thanks for considering that. :) And I'm sorry if I sounded stern before. Nikel Talk Vote! 12:08, July 1, 2013 (UTC)
It's ok don't worry about that. Anyway I will rename the thumbnails just like what you said, i find some thumbnails are named "afEP10CrossedBraidedBun" so I will rename it to "File:EP10 Crossed Braided Bun"? or "File: TS3 IP Crossed Braided Bun"? And can you please help me to find or make better template for CAS Thumbnails? Thanks in advance... TheSleepyhollow02 (talk) 08:36, July 2, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply! That's okay, it's up to you because it sounds better than the random instance numbers. Template for CAS thumbnail? I don't think we have any here... Personally, I'm not really sure if showing every thumbnail that's in the game to showcase the contents is very likable, as it might eventually clog up the articles. To me, mentioning "there are X tattoos in this EP" is more than enough in an article. Nikel Talk Vote! 09:28, July 8, 2013 (UTC)
It's ok but thanks anyway for reply... Just tell me if there's a better template for CAS Thumbnails and I will start renaming those thumbnails... Anyway I will add "hide" or "show" feature in the templates used for these thumbnails... TheSleepyhollow02 (talk) 14:42, July 9, 2013 (UTC)
