Image uploads

Hi Eddie, thank you for your contributions to the wiki. Unfortunately we have to use the moderation plugin because we had rampant vandalism that lasted a few months. It required so much work to fix and maintain. This was the best solution that allowed new users to still contribute, and keep me, the currently only active admin from losing my mind! :) When writing your page, you can always preview your changes before submitting, I suggest making more use of that function. If you want to upload images, you can use this page here: Special:Upload. You can read more about how to use images on MediaWiki sites like this one here: [1] --simonlc (talk) 12:58, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

You're very welcome. Thanks for explaining, I understand. I'm sorry to hear about the trolls ruining the site :( Anyways, I was told that after 10 edits, I would be able to upload images. But when I go to the page you linked, I get a permission error. It says "You do not have permission to upload this file, for the following reason: The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups: Autoconfirmed users, Administrators, UrlWhitelist." Can I be let in so I can start adding images to wiki pages? Thank you. -- Eddie (talk) 19:07, 14 June 2020 (UTC)Eddie
Ah I apologize, I forgot about the Autoconfirmed rules. Yes it does take ten edits, but also your account needs to be 10 days old. I've made the change manually so you should be able to upload images now. --simonlc (talk) 19:22, 14 June 2020 (UTC)
Ahh alright. Thanks :) Glad I didn't have to wait the extra 2 days lol. -- Eddie (talk) 21:12, 14 June 2020 (UTC)Eddie

Copying text

Hi Eddie, I removed the text you put in the new page Tetris Twin as it seemed to be taken directly from the document. Just a reminder that only texts written by yourself or with a permissive license compatible with CC BY-NA-SA are allowed. --simonlc (talk) 21:49, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Hi, my bad, there's almost no information on the game so I got lazy and just copied it. Is it alright if I reword it in my own words? Also, today I found out that the 2 images I posted for Brash Point II had scanlines in them. I submitted 2 more without scanlines, hoping to replace the previous ones. I think the new version looks much better and brighter. Eddie (talk) 18:42, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
