Thank you for your contributions. However, would you mind keeping the number of nigh-identical screenshots to a minimum? There have been a few complaints about the redundancy of pretty much every frame of an scene in an episode being uploaded to galleries, like just as examples, a character about to blink, mid blink, then after the blink in the same scene, or every movement of a character's mouth or position. I've attached an example of the sort of thing that I've referred to. This is also a clause in the "Manual of Style ". It just clutters up galleries and makes them massive, while failing to illustrate anything of significance.
Well, one complaint, and I'm not even trying to be critical of any user. But at this point, if loading a gallery is becoming a chore, then sifting through that gallery would be even more so. I mean, there are tools like VisiPics to assist in identifying and deleting duplicate files, but that's just offline on an individual PC. Large online galleries are decidedly harder to prune because of both browser memory and internet bandwidth bloat just from trying to load the page's resources. (And I'm familiar with that kind of thing, because I've been guilty of making (user space) galleries too bloated too.)
I think you're still uploading too many too-similar screenshots, and they've been making some of the gallery pages really, really bloated and too impractical to load, much less browse. Sometimes it looks like you're just uploading interval-delayed screenshots of entire episodes or clips. I can understand perhaps one screenshot per unique camera shot—more than one if there are multiple significantly unique (and separately interesting) moments in the shot—but I don't think it's a very good idea to upload hundreds at a time, especially without sifting through them and excluding screenshots that are unnecessarily too similar to others. If you're in any way automating this process (interval-delayed screenshot-taking, bulk uploads, etc.), it may be a good idea for you to stop doing that and sift through screenshots more manually for quality and unique content.
All that said, I can't really tell you what you can or cannot do. I just wanted to register my thoughts on the matter.
To be candid, I'm less concerned about his near-identical image uploads and more concerned about him racking up more achievement points than me at Special:Leaderboard because of it. (Hey, I worked really hard doing all-around maintenance to accumulate those points. XD) I could actually tolerate a lot of images that are similar to each other but for a different pose, gesture, etc. But pictures that look like they only have the slightest wiggle of difference would clearly be inappropriate. And if I were an admin (I'm not, but I'm empathizing here), I would rightly be annoyed dealing with artificially large image galleries, because they will require more maintenance not just in the present but in the future too.
And, if I'm not mistaken, these batches of images are at an odd image resolution. The raw video fees for most streaming videos of the 2012 TV series come in three resolutions: 1280x720, 1280x718 and more rarely 1280x716. But the images you're uploading are mostly 1912x1072—larger than the stream source, and just a little bit short of the conventional 1920x1080 used for 2K HD, common for many computer monitors including my laptop monitor. That made me suspicious, so I decided to zoom in to examine the compression artifacts, and I noticed image enlargement artifacts as well. And since the images are saved to JPEG, that introduces yet another set of compression artifacts in addition to the stream's compression artifacts and the enlargement artifacts. I notice this a lot on sites like Tumblr where someone takes a smaller image and blows it up and passes it off as HD, but it looks terrible when viewed at full resolution. So I don't really mind you uploading a lot of sufficiently unique images, but the dimensions you're using not only makes these larger files, but damages their image quality.
I've gotten several complaints on how the artificially-inflated galleries being to cumbersome to look through, and I agree. I was kind of letting it slide for a while because of how much of an undertaking it would be to find who was doing all of them, deleting them from both the site and the empty image resource on the gallery page (even if Evie weren't uploading them, adding them to the gallery anyway just doubles the workload). But it's literally just Evie and one other person who I'm already talking to who grab these massive printscreen button-spamming shots and throw them up there.
As it is I wanted to try breaking up character galleries, at least into different headers like, here's a gallery on the gallery page of Donatello alone, now here's another of him with Mikey, now here's him with April, then there's the group (two or more other characters besides Don), that way it breaks up the wall of squares a bit and gives the eye a break. But again, that's an undertaking in of itself.
You're doing it again... These screenshots aren't even the right dimensions. If you're going to upload screenshots, use the original video dimensions (at or near 1280x720)—none of this print-screen stuff.
Good. In fairness, you've mostly alleviated the "too many similar screenshots" problem, at least among your most recent uploads. Now the problem has just been inappropriate image dimensions. If you are at all able, snap them at source width and source height. For online streamed episodes, that's almost always either 1280x720 or 1280x718 or 1280x716, depending on the episode. DVD screenshots at source dimensions will never be wider than 640px, but I know that can't be helped since it's a limitation of the format.
