Hey! Edit

You uploaded a very good version of Mervis, however you could have simply overrided the pre-existing file with your version instead of uploading another another file. Subsequently I moved your picture to the original file source and tagged for deletion your upload. This is just a notice of what happened in case you're confused ;) Viktoria Landers 13:23, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

I chose not to replace the image because the image guidelines say to replace if it is a new, better version of the original. As this was a completely different image, it seemed the proper course of action. But whatever, it doesn't matter. Norqi (talk) 13:26, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
Actually, this has been bugging me a lot in the past few days. Did you happen to check at all the "What links here"[1] page? If you had, you would have seen that only one page linked to the old image (unless I am seriously misunderstanding how that function works), and after I uploaded the new image I corrected that page to link to the proper image. I really don't understand why you went through all that trouble of re-uploading my image yourself, and then tagging it for deletion when all that was needed at that point was for the old image to be tagged for deletion.
It might seem like a petty complaint, but it matters to me. Especially so since recently I have found a poor-quality image which could easily be fixed, and I took a new screenshot, intending to upload it to replace the old image. The only problem is, I saved my file as a PNG when I took the screenshot. The image I want to replace is a JPG. If you try to use the "replace image" function using an image that is a different file format than the original, it doesn't work. I know, I tried. I'm not going to re-save it as a JPG for the sake of overriding it when the guidelines specifically recommend uploading images as PNGs. However, if I uploaded it and fixed pages to link to the new image, I have serious doubts that this same kind of thing wouldn't happen again (to no avail, as well, because of the aformentioned file format issue).
I just... really don't understand why people do things certain ways on this site, and seriously regret making an account. It hasn't been worth the trouble of editing, at all. Norqi (talk) 00:43, November 7, 2013 (UTC)
