Your edits[edit]

Hi Cardsknower, I've been noticing something about your edits, so I'd appreciate if we could have a temporary chat. (It's not something that can be resolved easily over multiple messages over a long period of time.) use this url, click "Open Discord in your browser" in the center of the screen (or possibly top-right corner), enter any username of your choice, then click the arrow. Press "Skip", then click outside the box that asks you to register. Finally, click on the "+" sign in the upper-left corner and select "Join a server", inputting the following invite url: ( --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 05:59, December 30, 2017 (UTC)

Ok!Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 16:32, December 30, 2017 (UTC)

Hi there[edit]

Just wondering when you first attempted to log in on Yugipedia, because I see that your account was imported here very recently. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 02:24, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

I tried to do it since Sunday after you said on the Fandom wiki that edits will no longer be imported. One odd thing about this wiki is that my special contributions prior to my account being officially imported stated they go up to January 17 yet now they go up to January 4th however all edits I've done as of January 20th are all still listed. Do you know what's up with that?Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 03:10, 26 January 2018 (UTC)
I believe the imported edits shouldn't go any further than January 21, 15:56 (UTC).
Can you be more specific about "I tried to do it since Sunday"? Did you mean you tried to log-in multiple times since Sunday (with your Wikia username + password)? What error messages did you get, if any? When were you finally successfully in logging in? --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 03:48, 26 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes i did try to log-in multiple times since Sunday (I still kept an eye on the Special:Log/newusers until I saw that my account had been imported today) The error message was Auto-creation of a local account failed: An account creation for this user name is already in progress. Please wait., which was the same as any users from FANDOM would get here if their FANDOM account has not been imported to this wiki yet. I was finally able to log-in today after I saw your message on my talk page and the log showed my account had been imported.Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 04:49, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Duel summaries[edit]

I noticed that you edited some of the past Duel summaries. Just wanted to point out that it's not necessary to say that a player draws at the start of their turn, unless they draw a specific card and that Normal Summoning is done in Attack Position by default.

Card gallery conversion[edit]

Hello, Cardsknower. When listing replica cards, please don't do ; RP, like you did here. Do it this way, with :: RP. Thanks. I still haven't written any proper documentation because I'm still completing it. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 12:29, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Re: Video gallery change and north american gallery problem[edit]

Hello, Cardsknower.
The video game part is not ready yet. I still need to add some more functions and then test it.

For the Legacy of the Duelist entries, don't add them to the gallery unless you have an actual image to post there. In other words: don't add empty galleries. Also, what abbreviation are you going to use? How are you going to name the file? We need to decide that first. Present a suggestion first. Then, if it's approved by the admins, and only then, you can start adding gallery entries. I'm assuming we don't have any of those yet; if we do, link me to an example, please.

I'm aware of the American entries. The files there should be named -NA and not -EN. The files need to be renamed first.

For the "Other" part, neither am I. Still need to think more about it. I have a couple of ideas, but I haven't gotten there yet. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 00:47, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

"LOD" is the set abbreviation for Legacy of Darkness, so it shouldn't be used for Legacy of the Duelist; "LD" is to my knowledge not used for anything at all, so that's what I'd recommend. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:47, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
"LD" was also one of my suggestions on our private chats. There was more support for "LD" too and no objections. So "LD" is fine, Cardsknower.
I'll be finishing the module to support vg entries. I'll let you know when it is done. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 11:03, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Ok, the video game entries are ready. Example. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 12:28, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Platinum Rare was there, but there was a typo that made it a bit unreachable. It's fixed now. Thanks for letting me know. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 12:17, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Legacy of the Duelist card images[edit]

We do not need full-screen images of "each card and their stats listed separately". All we need is the card image. Please research if there's a way of extracting the individual card images from the game. (There may not be; the game may instead use use blank card templates for each card, where they insert the artworks and card text/stats individually.) If the game does not store complete card images (with text/stats/artwork combined in the same image), then please upload the card images you've been uploading so far, but cropped to only include the card image. I'll rename the image you requested. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 03:40, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

RE:Need help renaming FlamvellFiend-LD-EN-VG.png[edit]

Hi there. Don't worry, UltiKuriboh has already renamed it. Thanks for reporting! GMTails (talkcontribs) 23:57, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

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

Thank you for the suggestion. That's exactly my problem too. It needs to accept anything. I have an idea to solve it, but I was trying to find a better one, before implementing it. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 22:23, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

Something for you[edit]

Hey Cards, I'm really impressed with you work in updating the card galleries, I want to show you a category i made when add {{OCG-TCG card image| name = }} to images that didn't have them, it's a temp category that I plan to delete when it's at zero,also some cards have a gallery but not a set page (granted that is rare), hope this helps, LeafGreen Ranger (talkcontribs) 12:36, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

also please use this for when changing the card galleries in case we are missing images for example: LeafGreen Ranger (talkcontribs) 00:23, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
also for those OP images
ABYR-EN072; Abyss Rising; UE ::OP
and if you don't want to do it because of moving images, let me know images and I'll move them all


Hello. I'm Dove. I'm trying to create an account here but I can't answer the CAPTCHA question, as I searched on Google and nothing seems to find the answer. What is the name of Yugi's signature monster? (talk) 19:04, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

Mover rights[edit]

Hello Cardsknower.
I've restored your mover rights. This comes with certain conditions:

  • If any misuse (where "misuse" can be defined by any admin, by any way they want, at any time, with no chance of arguing back) is noticed by any admin, the mover rights can be revoked and, possibly, a block issued.
  • If any of the past problems is noticed by any admin, the rights can be revoked and, possibly, a block issued.
  • If something seems suspicious, we won't be so lenient this time, so please don't push it.

I (and the rest of the admins) are depositing our trust in you again. Hope you can compel to it.
Since you've been converting card galleries, you could put the rights into a good use by renaming the incorrect file names, thus leaving the card gallery with all of the galleries converted into {{Card gallery}}.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Happy editing and movings. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 01:19, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

It's not possible to move multiple images. You need to move one at a time. And note that the links cannot be updated automatically, so you need to correct them manually as well.
Yes, that is true and those cases will be addressed at some point. Don't worry about them for now.
The "Other" section is low on my todo list, but I'll get there. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 02:18, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Not sure I get it.
There's Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters II: Dark duel Stories, which should use DM2 (e.g., File:BlacklandFireDragon-DM2-JP-VG.png). And there's Yu-Gi-Oh!_Dark_Duel_Stories, which should use DDS (e.g., File:BlacklandFireDra-DDS-NA-VG.png). Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 12:20, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
Oh, I understand now. I'll fix this soon, when I can. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 01:24, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
I have corrected it. I'm short on time so I didn't test it. Even though it's a simple fix, please let me know if something is not correct. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 01:33, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
For the former, no, that's the policy we use now.
As for the other, no, that'd be a terrible name. That's an icon. Don't bother with that one for now. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 02:04, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
If they don't fit, just leave them be. We'll sort them out in the end.
Just add the image twice or use description:: to leave a note. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 16:12, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
Please don't do this. Don't remove images from the gallery (the "WC07" one). If you can't convert them to the new gallery format, just don't convert at all. Please go back and revert all cases where you did this. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 20:41, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Re: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]

Yes, something like that will be implemented eventually. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 21:28, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

RE: GemKnightSeraphinite[edit]

Hi there. The issue with File:GemKnightSeraphinite-HA07-EN-UE-OP.png was fixed. Thanks for reporting! GMTails (talkcontribs) 16:20, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

RE: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]

Sorry, I forgot I should have replied here, on your talk page. I've replied on mine. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 22:22, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

Sorry for taking so long to reply.
The VG galleries are a bit undecided at the moment. With the new feature I added last time, the "FGD" image could now be placed, right? If so, just feel free to add it.
DT images should be on the "NA" header. But those images use "EN"; they should be moved first.
The "Gaia the Dragon Champion" image should have "UE" in its name, since it's not a 1st Edition (the eye of Anubis also seems more silver than gold); so feel free to move it to the correct name and add it to the gallery.
SAMPLE images don't belong in the card gallery. We, admins, decided that at some point, if I recall correctly. Since this particular one you pointed is not being used anywhere else, I will delete it.
Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 18:06, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
You were right; I wasn't recalling I only added it to the manga and anime ones. I've added it now, so feel free to test it out.
Thanks for the heads-up. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 22:47, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
I've added support for it. Use path::. Check this edit. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 00:56, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
"MW" images should be renamed to "DM", if I recall correctly, since Millennium World is just an arc. I will confirm this will Deltaneos.
For the "Gaia" images, the input for the first should be toei. I realize the it will generate it with "TOEI", but I guess all images should be moved to that, for consistency. I will check this with Deltaneos as well. For the second image, the input would be DM; Lab.
For the "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" image, the input should be JMP-001; Shonen Jump Vol. 1, Issue 1 promotional card; UR; UE. Should go into the NA gallery.
Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 23:44, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
Oh, I see now the "Blue-Eyes" image should go into both galleries, because they come from different issues. I'll have to add an option for that. Will do it tomorrow. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 23:46, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
Ok, I've added support for the "Blue-Eyes" case. Just use JMP-001; Weekly Shōnen Jump 2003, Issue 3–4 promotional card; UR; UE // region::NA on the JP gallery. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 10:51, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
And I've contacted Deltaneos and "MW" images should be renamed to "DM" and the Toei ones should be "TOEI". Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 10:27, 15 June 2019 (UTC)


Hey Cards, You are doing a Great job with the Card Galleries updating them and making them more streamline, but please add Reprints to the galleries, I see hundreds of missing cards in the galleries, mostly just LOB to LON, other than that, it's all great, you take care, and I'll try and help out as best as I canLeafGreen Ranger (talkcontribs) 23:36, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Card galleries[edit]

Hey Cards. For the Card Galleries, I noticed in your recent edits the North American sections weren't edited right. They're displaying smaller than the rest. Golden Key (talkcontribs) 16:59, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

RE:Request that I upload Legacy of the Duelist Link Evolution images of the card themselves[edit]

Hi, Cardsknower! Sure, we'll leave the card images up to you. And by the way, thanks a lot for uploading the LOD card images and updating nearly all of our galleries to the modern template. People were even talking about it on our Discord. GMTails (talkcontribs) 22:05, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Given the number of these images and the speed you'll be able to upload them at (assuming the wiki cooperates), especially compared to your work on converting galleries, it would be preferable if you created a second account to upload them with, which we could mark as a bot. This would prevent the uploads from displaying on Special:RecentChanges and the recent changes channel on Discord, which would prevent them from swamping out other edits. You can let GMTails or myself (or any other admin) know what account to mark as a bot and we'll do it for you. =) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 23:44, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
I want some more time to think about this before I make my final decision especially since GianBot had a few incorrect image names when uploading those artwork images. I still want to convert galleries/add the Link Evolution images to card galleries as I normally have been doing. Reply when you can!Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 00:18, 3 April 2020 (UTC)
That's fine; there would be no requirement to use bot software to upload the images anyways (that is, you could still do it entirely manually if you wanted). My main concern is to keep the recent changes feeds usable by preventing flooding of them with file uploads anyways (this is a big reason we've been using GianBot to upload so many video game images, actually). There would also be no requirement to use the bot account at all for the gallery conversions (probably, we would prefer that you continued to do these on this account anyways). Adding the uploaded cards to the galleries might be okay to do on the bot account, but it'll require some discussion with the other admins first (and I expect we'd require you to only add the images in these edits, without making any other changes to the galleries or elsewhere).
After some discussion with the other admins, we want to make clear that this offer only applies for uploading these images. If there's any other work you'd like to do on the bot account, you'll need to ask for approval first, and if you make any unapproved changes with the bot account, the bot flag will be revoked.
One last point: I would prefer that these images be losslessly optimized before being uploaded; I can do this for you if you're willing to upload an archive containing the files, otherwise I can walk you through the process, including the program and settings to use (assuming you're on Windows). This is to help limit some how much disk space the files take up after being uploaded; as you might imagine, storing 300 thousand files takes a fair bit of disk space, and in our case, that's almost 200 gigabytes. ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 01:40, 3 April 2020 (UTC)
I made up my mind, Dinoguy1000 and yes I want a bot to upload my images. It should be called CardKBot. I just need to know how to log-in into a bot account in order to upload. I actually went to to do lossless compression on the first set of images that I plan to upload. Reply when you can!Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 07:34, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
Just create an account with your desired username, then I can flag it as a bot account. After that, you edit with it exactly as you edit with your Cardsknower account: log into it and start editing.
Can you send me a few sample images, before and after optimization? ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 16:10, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
Where and how Dinoguy1000? If you want me to send this to you on a different website which one and how do I do so?Cardsknower (talkcontribs) 00:37, 7 April 2020 (UTC)
(For future reference, this was resolved; Cardsknower contacted me on Discord.) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 18:33, 7 April 2020 (UTC)
User:CardKBot was given Bot permissions. Good luck! GMTails (talkcontribs) 01:43, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

Video game images artworks.[edit]

Hey there, Cardsknower,
I've updated the module for video games images on card galleries; to note artworks (previously being tagged with CA and now tagged with artwork), it should be done this way. It's the same way you'd do for CA before.
Let me know if you need something. Cheers! Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 18:26, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

High-resolution images[edit]

There likely aren't any good images for sets that old. The ones I've uploaded are from recent years at best. MadRest (talkcontribs) 15:05, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

RE: Master Duel artwork request[edit]

Hello, Cardsknower! Yes, I did manage to get the images of all Pendulum Monsters as well. The problem is that their in-game files are stretched like this. I didn't upload them because we haven't decided if they should be uploaded like that, or resized to the correct aspect ratio. JustGian (talkcontribs) 18:26, 6 May 2022 (UTC)
