Image format Edit

Hello. I'm trying to edit some of the images I uploaded earlier to make them the JPG format, but when I do I'm getting an error saying the MIME type of the destination file is not the same as the uploaded file. I can't seem to change the destination file. How might I go about editing the image so it's a different file format? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 13:52, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

As far as I know, the images must be uploaded again ("replaced") as jpg files and you cannot move them with the current format. Tom (talk) 16:02, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
So would I go to the "File History" section of an image page or do I need to create a new image page for the JPG version of the PNG files I uploaded? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 16:15, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
You need to upload a new image as jpg so we can delete the previous uploaded png files. Tom (talk) 16:20, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

Question about talk page formatting. Edit

Hey, I have a question regarding the format of talk pages, specifically related to unnamed humanoids. I've posted several topics in such a page to try to see if the aliens I saw had been seen yet or not. Some of them I'm satisfied haven't been named or categorized yet, while in at least one instance what I thought was a distinct species had already been mentioned on the unnamed humanoids page. Seeing as deleting posts from a talk page is frowned upon, is there a way I can group my topics into things like added species, resolved topics, and uncertain species?

I don't think so. Talk pages are what they are and what I meant earlier when I said "Personally I don't see a point to fill the talk page of the article instead of adding the information to the article." You can only add a note to the talk page topic that the "unidentified species" was added to the article as you did it here. Tom (talk) 22:05, January 5, 2015 (UTC)
Would it be OK if I removed the images from the talk sections that I've already added as the only reason the images were in the Talk page was to make it easier to see the species I was trying to identify? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 12:24, January 6, 2015 (UTC)
Personally I would say yes. It would make it easier to replace with images of higher quality later. But I think leaving them on the talk page would be better. Tom (talk) 13:38, January 6, 2015 (UTC)
