So, um, I was thinking, since this is a Pokemon forum and everything, it would be cool if you guys uploaded a bunch of Pokemon sprites, then made a code so we could enter something like [gen1="1"] and get



As an output. That way we wouldn't have to look up Pokemon. I suppose I just asked because I'm lazy, but either way I'm fine with it.

Quite a usefull BB code I'll admit. Though the thing is, once we decide on what sprites to use (DPP, HGSS etc.), then 493 sprites would have to be uploaded to the database and/or added into the coding etc. So, 493 BB codes would need to be made. It is a nice concept, though it would really take quite a while to insert it all, and is possibly more trouble than it's worth.
Again, it would be usefull for some. But, we'll have a total pokemon sprite spam all over the forum xD
Just my thoughts at least.

Nah, I don't have experience with vB but in MyBB, I've already made it.

I just made the tag this:
[pkmn={DIGIT}]

And the HTML this:
<img src="http://site.com/forums/images/$1.png" />

So basically, whatever number you enter, it'll output that sprite.

Just so long as I'm not the one who saves all of the sprites and FTP's them onto the server, lol.

I wouldn't mind picking just one set of sprites (say, from DP or HGSS or something) and then setting them up as smilies.

Well, okay I would mind personally doing it because that'd be quite the hassle but I would have no problem if we did implement it. XD;

I think we should have those little bouncing sprites you see on the party screen. I think Serebii or maybe PE2K does that :>

This seems like a nice idea.But it could take ages,and besides,Shiny Sprites would have to be uploaded.

Lol, I cant see staff being very willing to upload 493 non-shiny sprites then having to upload another 493 shiny ones, which will most likely be in demand. Then in turn there will be all the alternate forms and such! We'll need an admin with absolutely no life to upload them all. XD

Lol we would SO not be doing shiny forms if we did this. >_<; If you really needed to display a shiny Pokemon in your post, you could just use image tags and supply your own sprite.

It only took me like 15 minutes to upload all the HG/SS sprites with FileZilla, and I just left it minimized the whole time.

FTPing isn't the thing that makes me not want to do this--it's manually going in and adding the code to configure each one for use on PC. D;

Well you should be able to use:

<img src="http://pokecommunity.com/images/{option}.png" />

to make it so you only have to make one tag, unless I'm reading the vB manual wrong. o.o Obviously the link would be replaced with wherever the images would be located.

You'd need to make it {param} though, wouldn't you?

No, not according to the guide. You should use {param} when you're inserting it between tags, not when it's actually inside one of the tags, in which case it says to use {option}.

Ooka I really like this idea... Tho having only Shiny's would be awesome.. But let's face it not all shiny's look pretty.. I mean look at starmie, ewww...


As for Audy and Erica... You two are to lazy for your own good, you outsource so much it makes Pingu's fingers get blisters.... xD *No offence*


Tho uploading the sprites as smiley's is not a bad idea... :3


Also why haven't we got a sticky somewhere with all the sprites from all the gens I mean those are useful resources for some of us on the forum.. :3

Do you know how unfun and how painful that would be to their brains?

We have a sprite discussion thread in my General Pokemon Gaming section. That's as close as you guys are gonna get, cause I ain't uploading no sprites for y'all. Here's what you do: favorite Bulbapedia, click it when you need a sprite, type in the Pokemon, and click the sprites subarticle, and copy the URL. Stop being lazy.

You wouldn't have to learn the numbers, if you specifically wanted to just keep using the links, you could. It only takes like, 30 minutes to do it, so it's just an easy alternative.

I've seen this done on PFU, back in the day when it still existed. To get an Alakazam sprite there, you'd just have to type [pokemon]alakazam[/pokemon] or [pokemon]65[/pokemon].

I did like it there, though I think it's just as easy to run over to Bulbapedia or PE2K to grab some images to throw between image tags.

Lightning, no offense, but are you really gonna bs us like that? You know it takes one BBcode. If it didn't you'd need a bazillion BBcodes for every url, image, spoiler, font change that people want to post.
Code:
[pokemon]{param}[/pokemon]
Code:
<img src="image url/{param}.png" alt="" />
Done.

And if need be, I'll collect all the sprites and put them in a neat little .rar you guys can extract and upload.

You'd think it would be enough to have to represent Jirachi, do we really need a BB code when you can just post a sprite from another website?

Except that it would result in a face-sprite like here » and not into a "Pokémon-sprite" as I guess the OP is talking about. Something like bouncing sprites of the Party Screen would be nice to have. I'm not sure how necessary or something would this be, although I'm pretty sure that, if having to show pokesprites frequently (such as in a sig that displays a party), then it would be far more polite storing the sprites here (and hence having an access code/tag) than hitting Bublapedia/Serebii/Google Cache every time.

Opinion: This is not something that is difficult or time-consuming to do, neither programming-wise or uploading-wise, when taking into consideration all the things that have already been done (*points at newest themes*). But I think it is not that meritory of a change unless putting many pokesprites in posts ends up becoming a major trend. Besides, if we had it, I'd most likely end up abusing it... :D

I see where you all go with this though.
