Can you tell me a littler about common courtesy regarding pages? Am I allowed to make a page for my own animutation as long as it's impartial? BeatlesLover 14:43, 2 September 2006 (PDT)

Will someone mention stuff about putting screenshots on wiki?

Simple, here's a guide for screenshots.

1. Get the animutation you wanna take a screenshot of up and running.

2. Pause or stop it on the frame you want your screenshot to be of.

3. Press the "Print Scrn" button up at the top of your keyboard.

4. Open Ms Paint, or Photoshop, if you have it. Get a new, empty picture.

5. Go to Edit and Paste

6. Crop it to only be of the animutation screen.

7. Save it as a PNG

8. Go to "Upload File" on the wiki and upload your image

9. Go to the page of said animutation and edit it.

10. Where it says "screenshot" or "place screenshot here or something, copy this code:

Image: filename.png|center|thumb|236px| Your hilarious remark goes here (and include the [[]]'s on the ends) - Penguin (magician)

File extensions for tracker formats?

For the titles of songs made with trackers (like Modplug, Reality Adlib, or Soundfactory), should the extension of the original file be left on or off? (For example, Aryx vs. aryx.s3m for Suzukisan, or Flynn89 vs. flynn89.psf for flynn89.swf) And if the filename should be left on, should it be in DOS format (filename.ext) for DOS/Windows-based tracker formats (like s3m) and Amiga format (ext.filename) for Amiga-based tracker formats (like psf)? --LordZeebmork 17:18, 27 April 2007 (PDT)

Fake lyrics

I've been thinking, and the current formatting guide doesn't make a whole lot of sense, having unmodified lyrics in italic and "implied" fake lyrics in plain text - it would make a lot more sense for these to be done the other way around so that all fake lyrics, explicit or implied by imagery, will stand out from unchanged lyrics. Opinions? --Quietust 14:15, 4 October 2008 (PDT)
