Uploading images

I noticed that you uploaded the tile for scrolls of enchant weapon recently. Thanks for deciding to help with that, but if you want to upload more tiles, get them from here:
That website is the official tiles database for Crawl, so it has all of the most recent versions of the tiles, all at their actual size and with transparency. We use stuff from there because that way it matches all the other tiles on the wiki. Also, be aware that tiles will often be updated between versions -- sometimes the database will have a new version of a tile that won't actually appear in the game until the next release, so just check to see what the tile looks like in the game before you upload the new version.
FYI, Tiles for things like scrolls or pieces of jewellery are kinda tricky, because they're actually multiple tiles that get layered on top of each other. For example, the new version of the enchant weapon scroll I just uploaded is the symbol for enchant weapon pasted on top of the scroll with a green ribbon. Fortunately, this is easily done with just about any image editing program (though some editing programs like Microsoft Paint will remove the transparency; if that's all you've got, I recommend using a free online image editor like [LunaPic] to restore the transparency of the background).
In any case, thanks again for deciding to help with that tile! And pardon my rant -- I've done a lot of the more recent tile uploading and updating here, so I'm kinda invested in it. :) --spudwalt (talk) 07:55, 16 April 2015 (CEST)

No apology necessary. That was mostly just a quick and dirty job from the tile in my Crawl directory. I'll probably stick mostly to editing content rather than media, but I'll reference your "rant" in case I decide to deviate again. Thanks. :) -Beep (talk) 08:15, 16 April 2015 (CEST)
