Case Topper Set gallery[edit]

Hi. How do you write a Set Gallery for a Case Topper card?

Code of the Duelist: Giant Edition

There are previous sets of those, but they still use the old code, so I want to know if there is a way to write it down in the new format, because the card is SR, but also a Case Topper, so it has to have the KR-SR-UE-CT extension and show (CT) for rarity like the previous ones.

--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 23:16, October 2, 2017 (UTC)

Hi! You could do it like:

{{Set gallery|
COTD-KRGE1; Firewall Dragon; Super Rare; CT // description::[[Case Topper]]

But that wouldn't display exactly as you'd wish and wouldn't be pretty. I shall update the gallery module to accommodate for this kind of galleries when I have more time.
And we should really think of a better way to handle those galleries. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 13:31, October 3, 2017 (UTC)

But at least it gives the file the correct extensions, and doesn't look ugly, so it'll do until you can make that update. --Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 14:16, October 3, 2017 (UTC)

DP18 Image templates[edit]

Could you please fix (or add) the Templates for the DP18 Images?

I am uploading the set now, and seems the Template is missing because all end up with red text in where they should display the links to the Set and print.


--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 16:06, October 6, 2017 (UTC)

Added! Thanks, keep it up! Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 18:42, October 6, 2017 (UTC)

Link Summoning...?[edit]

I just discovered Skulldeat, the Chained Dracoserpent. After taking a look at it, I'm a bit confused. It's a Link 4, which I don't mind. But it gains effects depending on how many monsters it was Link Summoned with. This is what's confusing me.

I thought that in order to Link Summon a monster, you needed the exact same number of monsters as its Link Rating(You can also use Link Monsters as multiple Link Materials equal to their Link Rating).

My question is if Link 4 monsters like Borreload Dragon, Firewall Dragon, and Skulldeat really can be Link Summoned with less than 4 monsters. If you can actually summon things like this with just a Gofu the Vague Shadow, then that's just absurd.Surfinbird42 (talkcontribs) 14:13, October 13, 2017 (UTC)

Hello there. Well, that's the way it is. I guess you replied to your own question. You can indeed use Link Monsters as "multiple" materials. But don't forget that in order to Summon that first Link Monster, you had to use multiple monsters for it. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 18:39, October 13, 2017 (UTC)

So the scenario I described CAN happen. Thanks. It can be hard to realize that there are differences between YGOPro and the real-life card game. And I will say that since Gofu IS a 1-card Firewall, Borreload, Decode Talker or whatever, I wouldn't be surprised if it got Limited in the TCG too.Surfinbird42 (talkcontribs) 02:06, October 14, 2017 (UTC)

Wait. If a Link Monster says it needs 3+ monsters: you still need to use 3 or more monsters, regardless. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 12:01, October 14, 2017 (UTC)

List of shelled monsters and the card rulings of Collected Power and Tailor of the Fickle[edit]

They are subjects without any relationship, but they're causing a confusion in my head for a while and no one answered me.

First, i was wandering in some FMR when i found a monster lore that linked this list Is there similar lists which explains the monsters from FMR that can be equipped with another equip spell cards?If not, cna i create one? And if yes, how can i do it? I searched and i didn't find anything. Now, about the Collected Power and Tailor of the Fickle Rulings Say for example, i have 1 "Destiny HERO - Plasma" and 1 "Relinquished" under my control and 1 of them is already equipped with a monster: can i use the Collected Power of Tailor of the Fickle to switch the monster being used as a Equip to the other monster? I know this is kinda noob from me to ask this, but the rulings won't explain this part of the rulings. --OnePiece (talkcontribs) 14:40, October 18, 2017 (UTC)

From Card Rulings:Collected Power#cite_note-OutofDate-1: "monsters treated as Equip Cards (except Union monsters equipped by their own effects) cannot have their equip target changed.". So no, you cannot.
As for the video game stuff, I'm not into it, so I can't give you an answer. I will point this to someone else. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 17:22, October 18, 2017 (UTC)

Replay:Image naming again[edit]

Hi. It is not like that I ignored your demand before. I just do not know how to change the extension name from PNG to png. Since Windows always deems them to be the same extension, and every time I try to rename my images' extension to png, it does not allow me.--Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 17:39, October 19, 2017 (UTC)

I assume you're talking about the Special:Upload method? If this is the case, then I'll try uploading through it from now and on.--Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 17:50, October 19, 2017 (UTC)
Through the Visual Editor and sometimes the source editor's upload modules.--Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 18:36, October 19, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, I know that it is not always ideal to write in the Visual Editor (since it sometimes gives a side-effect), although it has some advantages. But even then, I usually check up with the source-editor that is built in it in order to eliminate such effects.
But, do you guys enforce a rule that says you must not use this editor, or that you just advise against it? I just do not want to step onto the red line everytime.--Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 18:50, October 19, 2017 (UTC)

Resolve What Happened[edit]

I'm not gonna stop til I get an apology for what happened. That's all I want, then you'll never hear from me again. --ArcVRains (talkcontribs) 15:49, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

Or are you just incapable of apologizing because you think your paranoia over the Lancers is justified? --ArcVRains (talkcontribs) 21:24, November 8, 2017 (UTC)

It's not your opinions that I care about; it's with how you handled what happened on the Lancers page. After two edits, you threatened to block my account without even trying to ask me to stop, all because you were paranoid DragonEmperor and I were gonna start an edit war. Then you said it was a warning to anyone who would try to mess up the article, only to follow up with how you did it because you assumed I wouldn't have stopped if you had asked me to. That's what I want an apology for. It had been three weeks since I first joined the wiki by then and you barely even knew me, yet you assumed I would have just complained and kept going if you had tried asking me to stop. I would have stopped; heck, I was gonna stop if he had reverted my edit again and take it to the talk page.

Your so quick to point out my faults and say I'm rude, yet you conveniently leave out the part you played in all this. --ArcVRains (talkcontribs) 21:43, November 25, 2017 (UTC)

All that I want is an apology for how you overreacted. --ArcVRains (talkcontribs) 17:54, December 21, 2017 (UTC)

Is it too much to ask for a simple apology? --ArcVRains (talkcontribs) 17:19, December 23, 2017 (UTC)

Couple Things[edit]

I don't like leaving behind redirects when moving pages unless your changing from the Japanese name to the official English one.

Otherwise I would it potentially problematic when you've got multiple redirects going to the same page that isn't something like a character page for a series that has multiple characters that have too little info to justify having their own individual pages.

It might also be a good idea the to separate Traps and Spells from Monsters in the Anime Navbox like how the normal Navbox does as to not confuse people trying to see only the monsters of an archtype in the anime. Chimera-gui (talkcontribs) 03:03, November 8, 2017 (UTC)

Reply to feedback[edit]

Apologies for creating that page without adding new content to it. If I ever make another page for whatever reason, I will be sure to remember that. Thanks for the feedback and have a nice day. KyrusDarkblade244 (talkcontribs) 13:41, November 8, 2017 (UTC)

A preemptive list?[edit]

Hi! Long time no see.

I've just got news of the impending Korean release for the EP17 by the end of this month; so I proceeded to add the basic info to the product page; everything fine.

But noticed the KR list was already created a month ago Set Card Lists:Extra Pack 2017 (OCG-KR) as a basic port of the JP one. So, not yet knowing if the KR version will be an exact mirror of the JP one (which I am sure it will not, because the juicy part of the EPs are the "exchange" cards from both OCG regions). What do you think it should be done? Should the list content be deleted? Or should it be left around and updated once the product is out? I think deletion is in order so to not cause false expectations or confusion. --Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 20:38, November 10, 2017 (UTC)

Hey there! What's up?
Ah, thanks for pointing this out! Yeah, no source given and it was a direct copy-paste from the Japanese one. I've now deleted the page, since it contained false info (should have been deleted immediately (shouldn't even have been created in the first place)).
Once you get the info, feel free to add it! Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 20:42, November 10, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up!

I'll keep reading the Help forums, and let me know if you notice things I can improve onSuperChecker (talkcontribs) 16:50, November 13, 2017 (UTC)

LC Kaiba Portuguese list[edit]

Why did you delete the Portuguese list of Legendary Collection Kaiba that I've made. If it's incomplete, you should delete the English list too. I make all my portuguese lists on the exactly same format that the English. I make all my edits thinking on the Brazilian and Portuguese community. Make sure when another cards be revealed and when collections be announced I'll add the names in Portuguese who are available and I will make lists for the benefit of the people who use the wiki and just speak Portuguese. Sorry for your page, i am on my cell phone, later I'll edit and organize. THANKS!!! --LuahNerd5 (talkcontribs) 07:22, December 2, 2017 (UTC)

There is no use in having two incomplete lists and update them simultaneously. The English one is there, because cards are revealed. And it's useful for people to check what will be in the set. As for the Portuguese list, sure, could serve the same purpose, but it's not very productive. Furthermore, the English cards are the ones revealed; not the Portuguese ones (at least as a general rule, but not always, I know). Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 12:40, December 2, 2017 (UTC)

Sorry man! I´ll only create the list when the English be complete. I´ll only add the official names. Thanks!! --LuahNerd5 (talkcontribs) 13:31, December 2, 2017 (UTC)

DBSW & SD32[edit]

Hi! I just uploaded my cards from those sets; and the numbers haven't been updated (red numbers) and also the images get the red templates when opened; don't know if this is also linked to the red card numbers or it is a simple tweak somewhere so that they display the proper text of "This is from the Unlimited Print of..." etc.

Footnote: Also during this next week I plan on uploading my EP17-KR images, so if you could make those numbers blue and make sure the image templates are there while you fix these two it would be great so I won't bother you for that as well after I am done. --Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 23:47, December 8, 2017 (UTC)

Hey there! Dully noted! I'll get to it when I have more time. Thanks! Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 18:15, December 11, 2017 (UTC)
Did the red numbers manually; only the images template is missing now. And the SPWA Number redirects (which I left on your designated "to do list").--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 18:19, December 11, 2017 (UTC)
Alrighty! I've added the templates in the meantime. Thanks for the images, as usual! Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 18:23, December 11, 2017 (UTC)

EP17 Fact[edit]

Hi. I was visiting the official Korean YGO site and saw a notice for something I am wondering if should or not be added to the EP17 page here. The first runs of product have an error on the box text:

-All Ultra rare cards are also available as Secret rare. -In box actual text: ※ 울트라 레어 카드는 시크릿 레어 카드의 사양으로도 존재합니다.

And KONAMI has already ordered the correction of that; as in this pack that is not a feature, there are 2 Secrets and 4 Ultras and no overlapping rarities.

So I was wondering if that fact should be added to the page because it will be a sure way of identifying 1st run prints from future ones (as there is no longer a 1st Edition for Korea).

--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 14:18, December 19, 2017 (UTC)

Hey talk:Erdvilla.
So, the only issue was what the box said, right? The cards printed were always correct. Just state this on the first block of text on the set page or add a trivia section and insert it there, I'd say. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 15:00, December 19, 2017 (UTC)
Yes, only the box (and packs inside those boxes) was printed with that info. The set was normal (it would've been cool to otherwise have rarity-missprinted cards from a first run). Ok, I'll add the info then.--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 16:07, December 19, 2017 (UTC)

Cyber-Stein OTK[edit]

Hey, Becasita?

I saw the webpage for the Cyber-Stein OTK, as well as its disclaimer("This deck is considered a Classic Deck"). I am aware that Cyber-Stein got hit by the first ever emergency banlist in 2006.

I have found a new way to perform the OTK. To start it off, you need Cyber-Stein(Duh), Moon Mirror Shield equipped to it, and Clashing Souls. See, I want to put that method on the page, but the disclaimer states that the page's intent is to tell the story of the Cyber-Stein OTK Deck. Am I able to put that method on the page?Surfinbird42 (talkcontribs) 23:35, December 24, 2017 (UTC)

Hello there!
Heh, two things why I'd say you shouldn't bother with it:
  1. Like you said, "This deck is considered a Classic Deck";
  2. We're kinda deprecating those pages. So they don't have much importance;
If you want, you could, though, leave some notes on that OTK of yours at Card Tips:Cyber-Stein (I see you've already edited that very page). I think this is the best you could do; just explain it briefly, if possible. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 17:30, December 25, 2017 (UTC)

Colored tokens[edit]

A doubt; how do I specify the color of these tokens from LC03 ? 6 is Pink and 7 Orange. How do I write that on the Set list format so it shows? I want to know before I convert the other languages so I can do it properly. I converted the FR list to test, you can modify it to show me how to add the color bit to the name please.

--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 00:38, December 25, 2017 (UTC)

Found how to do it on another list. --Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 16:56, December 25, 2017 (UTC)
Yep, you managed to solve it, good! In any case, you can check for more info at {{Set gallery}}; there are examples there too. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 17:30, December 25, 2017 (UTC)

Card Query params with < or >[edit]

hi can you do the same with atk or def params for Card Query too? i wanted to replace it at places like "Sishunter"

PS: i don't know where to report that, but on mobile layout there is a bug in that Table (or in the generic ask table too?), i need to check what is wrong with that. --hanmac (talkcontribs) 17:06, December 28, 2017 (UTC)

Hello there.
What exactly do you want me to add? What's the behaviour you want to achieve?
As for the mobile issue, we have 0 control over it (FANDOM doesn't allow it). Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 16:43, December 29, 2017 (UTC)
i wanted to use it for Sishunder, currently <1500 does hide the atk in the table. you did something with level&rank, so it does show still atk when using card query.
for the mobile table, if the table has empty cells like for Secondary Type, then on mobile, the atk and def values are shown in the wrong column. --hanmac (talkcontribs) 14:24, December 30, 2017 (UTC)

Link Arrow question[edit]

I hope you don't mind me asking this, but how do you make the Link Markers on a wiki powered by Wikia look close to the ones on this wiki? I'm sure I've told you this, but I'm currently constructing templates for a wiki of my own that I hope to make; right now, I'm using a friend's wiki for this. On that wiki, he made a Link map; but when used on a card template (like mine, for example), it's kinda big compared to yours. I tried to make it smaller myself, but it results in the arrows themselves not being closely linked together (no pun intended).

If you have any further questions or concerns about this, do not hesitate to say so.

I look forward to your assistance. --Yes, it's THE-PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 03:09, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

I can confirm that we're not sure yet ourselves. Try using the arrows that you find when you search on the database. Sanokal K-T (talkcontribs) 06:22, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

I sincerely hope this'll be the last time I'll bother you with my inquiry regarding my template and me taking inspiration from your anime template. I'm actually close to finishing it, but all I need is help aligning the text. If you compare an example I made to, say, "Timegazer Magician", the text for my template is closer to the edge, compared to yours. Would it be alright if you gave me the code so that I can have it where my text isn't so close to the edge like that? Please, and thank you! --Yes, it's THE-PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 01:42, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

You're free to use the code, as long as you comply with the licensing.
To align that text, you need some CSS. Our CSS for the card table is at MediaWiki:Gadget-Cardtable.css. For that particular case of yours, you'd want to add padding: 5px; to those table cells.

Video gallery change and north american gallery problem[edit]

I noticed you made a change for video game gallery to the module data. Don't forget to add Legacy of the Duelist to the module data as I'm going to be adding card images from that video game soon.

The North American part of the card galleries have a problem particularly if they have images with "en" in their name instead of "na", which is problematic for the new gallery change.

Now only the Other gallery part is now left though I don't know how you will be able to change that with the new gallery thing.Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 00:22, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

The abbreviations I am going to use for my upcoming Legacy of the Duelist images will be "LOD". An image's name from Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist would be something like "DarkMagician-LOD-EN-VG". Reply when you can about this!Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 01:41, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Dinoguy1000 suggested "LD" instead since "LOD" is already used for Legacy of Darkness. Do you agree with giving LD as the abbreviation for Legacy of the Duelist? Reply when you can!Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 02:54, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
I almost forgot that Platinum Rare (abbreviated as "PlR") is not part of the new gallery change as I was testing it on some of the cards from the Noble Knights of the Round Table Box Set and it says "No rarity found for file input". Fix this when you can!Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 00:08, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Idea for "Other" galleries, but this only works for OW images[edit]

Because of how the OP image from is placed in the card gallery of "Mirror Force", I believe a similar concept can be used for other galleries (both en and jp), however this would work for OW images only. I am still debating on how to put images that don't have ow in their file name (such as those from commercials) into the other galleries.Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 20:40, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

Problem with moving multiple images in one edit and one question about status for "other" card galleries[edit]

Even with the restored mover rights, I can't figure out how to move multiple images at once in one edit (the Special:Move can only move one image at a time). Also not all card galleries (to my knowledge) would be able to use the revised gallery settings due to some images being from a different gallery (such as the anime gallery from Card Gallery:Butterfly Dagger - Elma, which has this image from Card Gallery:Backup Gardna). Some card galleries such as the one for "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" may also contain images from a different language (which would also not fit with the revised gallery settings) as the Japanese card gallery of "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" has an image from North America.

How far are you with getting the "Other" galleries to be in line with the revised galleries for cards, anime, manga, and video games since October?. Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 01:59, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Another problem is the video game card galleries, particularly with the Yu-Gi-Oh! Dark Duel Stories card images. For Japan, they are listed as DM3 images while for other languages, it is DDS images. This creates some kind of error as when I try to use the revised gallery settings for some Japanese galleries, the DM3 images can't be shown as the setting redirects DM3 to DDS for the image name, which forces me to use the old setting for some of these galleries (such as Card Gallery:Blackland Fire Dragon). This error should be fixed as soon as possible.Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 02:41, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
Images from the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters III: Tri-Holy God Advent gallery can't be up in card galleries with the converted setting. For example, this image can't be put up in with the converted gallery setting because when I tried to do this, the image's name ended up becoming "BlackIllusionRitual-DDS-JP-VG.png". I am also unsure if I should rename the card images that come from Sacred Cards and Reshef of Destruction since some cards like "Acid Rain" have different names in those video games.Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 18:43, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
It works, however there are some video game images that I am unsure if I should rename and/or I don't know what to name them. Examples include File:StainStorm-TSC-EN-VG.png and File:Ico yamiku.png though for the latter I had the idea for naming it "CastleofDarkIllusions-POC-EN-VG-Icon.png" or something like that.Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 01:51, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
The video game images I mentioned in my last message along with many others will not fit with the converted gallery setting since they are named differently, so I don't know how to put them in with the converted gallery setting.Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 02:21, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
Also images that are in more than one set will be hard to put in with the converted gallery setting such as AllureofDarkness-EV10-KR-ScR-UE which is part of Winter Festival 2009 promotional cards and Spring Battle 2010 promotional cards.Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 05:17, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
Done. I had the thought of something similar to the "//extension::" be used in the converted gallery for card gallery images that don't have the same name as the real card in which case we use the image's name instead of the standard way most images in the card gallery would be named. Of course this is only a possibility.Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 21:43, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

suggestion on using the file name and caption extension for real card, anime, manga, and videogame images that can't have their names changed[edit]

Would using the caption extension along with the file name for real card, anime, manga, and videogame images that can't have their names changed is a good idea as this way they can be put into the converted gallery setting? After seeing it being done for the other Galleries, I thought we should try doing this for images that have a name that can't changed for one reason or another.Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 19:37, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
