Thanks for the comments you left on my RfA, which I have responded to. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 07:42, July 8, 2016 (UTC))

Several stuff[edit]

Hey Deltaneos. I have several matters I'd like to discuss/ask for opinion:

  1. May I bump (or create a new one) this? I'd like to have access to it, given I usually clean the instances of old names after page moves. This would facilitate my work and spare me some time. I also want to relight the discussion about the renames for Beginner's Edition.1 and Beginner's Edition.2, and if those go through, lots and lots of instances need to get changed. I also want to rename the manga pages to sentence case and take care of other stuff like that. I also want to rename some catgories (to proper casing), but this is something I have yet to think more carefully. Having access to a bot would facilitate these tasks.
  2. I'd like to copy, from User:Deltaneos/common.css, the code that unhides the summary box from the RFPs. Do you mind? There's currently a request for mover that has been there for a while and I want to leave a comment there and I like to use the edit summary.
  3. Parts of MediaWiki:Common.js are not working; the imported scripts are not working (no queue, no ajax, etc.). It has happened once (I left a message at the talk page), but after a time, everything got back, so I hope this time the same will happen. Do you happen to know what happens for it to stop working properly?
  4. Last but not least, I'll take this opportunity to thank you (and everyone) for your support at the RFA; it's great to have access to these tools, I can do so much more! Regarding your comment, I hope I won't mess things up and I hope I'll deal well with other users. If I ever act in an incorrect way or if I ever misuse any of the tools, please, please, please, alert me immediately; I don't like to make mistakes.

Thanks for your attention! Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 15:56, July 22, 2016 (UTC)

  1. Commented.
  2. Sure. It's only a very simple CSS rule. I can't make any sort of ownership claim on it. I don't mind you having access to the edit summary box either, if that was your concern.
  3. Commented.

RE: DBT text dump[edit]

Yes, I am. Long story short: I started playing DBT some time ago because I wanted to get as much information of previously anime-only cards as possible. But after noticing that the methods I was using for that were too slow (and the game wasn't all that engaging for me), I asked for some help on how to get text dumps off GBA games on a forum I'm on. A kindly soul just did it for me. Apparently, grabbing it was an "extremely easy" thing to do because the text used a standard encryptation system. Extracting it was a different story altogether, though.

My language knowledge request had to do with a simple issue: whilst I can easily find names and lores in English, Spanish, French and Italian on that dump, I have zero idea about German, which makes finding the relevant bits and pieces a tad difficult for me.

Answering your question, I don't know the exact amount of cards in the game. Sorry! --AzureKesil (talkcontribs) 14:46, July 31, 2016 (UTC)

I know of that order because I've played old YGO! games for years and some card sequences stuck in my mind (I swear the BEWD-Mystical Elf-Hitotsu-Me Giant-etc. one is almost as familiar to me as the Kanto Pokédex one up to Raichu or so is!). What genuinely baffles me is the seemingly random absence of lores and cards and how the numbers wildly vary between languages. Knowing which cards have no associated lore (or the other way round) and then performing a cross-comparison with the English list would be handy to determine which lores belonging to which cards need to get extracted by "playing hard" (if we know that x character uses y missing card, it'd be a matter of time to draw y by playing with x over and over) or, well, using Gameshark and the like in order to draw the cards. I know it can be done of sorts, at least after having seen the screenshorts on this wiki which show a character hand with Armor Monster Cards on it-to my knowlege, those cards are only played by the CPU (the "Creep", not the NPCs). I know, editing 800 card articles is one heck of a titanic feat, but one could always work on it little by little and write down what's missing after finishing each article, right?--AzureKesil (talkcontribs) 20:10, July 31, 2016 (UTC)

My lack of this branch of knowledge shows again, heh. I guess there must also be an answer as to why The Winged Dragon of Ra (Phoenix Mode) shares a list number with Kamakiriman's lore in the English dump, for example.

I seriously hope I can learn of ways to hack the game. Playing with Mai Valentine selecting as many stages as possible or staying around the "Above Tibet" stage to keep on discarding and drawing cards can only get so annoying! And don't get me started on how Rebecca had one of the most annoying powers and lots of anime-only cards, including the by then unreleased Guardian Eatos Monster Card, anime artwork and all.
I hadn't thought of the wonders of copypasting to be honest. I reckon my brain is under conditioning due to my edits on wikis which get completely overloaded when new info's around, there are three users to deal with said information at best AND you're one of them AND the only admin around. By the way, may I ask how did people on this wiki manage to create articles of every custom Dark Duel Stories card (such as "Two-tone Slither")?
P.S. I am glad to see you found a way to include foreign card lores and names on video game articles, even if it's outside of the template :P --AzureKesil (talkcontribs) 21:35, July 31, 2016 (UTC)

It seems I missed the word "matching" there. I guess I simply took it for granted. My bad. I meant it as in how one can quickly deal with those huge numbers, even if not having to write down a lore greatly helps to keep a steady pace. Or else. I guess I just want to find a way to keep card article creation fast in times of need. I guess I should remember that multiple file upload is also a thing.--AzureKesil (talkcontribs) 22:07, July 31, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. More often than not, it's more a case of "if you can" rather than "if you want"! I took some card screenshots back when I played the game, so I could contribute with that if/when the respective articles are ready. --AzureKesil (talkcontribs) 10:11, August 1, 2016 (UTC)
Now that's something remarkable. Yet it doesn't surprise me due to certain things I noticed after working with the Spanish translation. As for your request, I could try to look for the respective ROMs and hope that person is still around, but I'm not sure if it'd happen, given how said person hasn't been on those forums since 2015.
P.S. "Nightmare Penguin" is used by Grandpa and "Brigadier of Landstar" is a Creep monster. Indeed, I decided to get a text dump when I eventually got tired of playing trial and error so as to check who used which Monster Card. --AzureKesil (talkcontribs) 00:23, August 7, 2016 (UTC)

RE:DBT names and lores[edit]

To be honest, ever since I saw your messages, I been playing the game for awhile and still can't found "Brigadier of Landstar" nor "Nightmare Penguin". You might have to wait for awhile since I can't recall which Duelist uses "Landstar" or "Nightmare Penguin". But with the lore it should be this:

When this penguin is on your side, your Aqua, Fish, Sea Serpent, and Reptile monsters receive a power up.

It based on the lore from Yu-Gi-Oh! Reshef of Destruction, a game that was released one year earlier than Yu-Gi-Oh! Destiny Board Traveler. The lore that you suggest:

When this card is flipped face-up, return 1 card on your opponent's side of the field to the owner's hand. As long as this card remains face-up on the field, increase the ATK of all WATER monsters on your side of the field by 200 points.

Shouldn't be possible as this game was released before the actual card. I do believe that the stat came from Reshef of Destruction, than the actual card. For "Water Element", check the card gallery. WinterNightmare (talkcontribs) 04:29, August 6, 2016 (UTC)

Yes, its North America version, there is no option to change the current languages, just the credit and erased saved data. WinterNightmare (talkcontribs) 19:35, August 6, 2016 (UTC)

Tristan in GX[edit]

So, I'm not sure if I'm doing this right, sorry if I'm not. But about the Tristan page. I must have watched that scene about a dozen times to be sure and compared the silhouette to several references. Everything seems to fit, from the hairstyle to that jacket/coat he tends to wear. Is the community 'that' sure it isn't him? JaronKitsune (talkcontribs) 02:52, August 8, 2016 (UTC)

I can't speak for the community as a whole on this one. I've started a topic at Talk:Tristan Taylor#Yu-Gi-Oh! GX silhouette to see if anyone else interested has an opinion and gave more details on why I don't think it's him. Could you reply there if you still disagree? Thanks. -- Deltaneos (talk) 20:59, August 9, 2016 (UTC)

Color scans[edit]

Hey man im just wonderin were do u get the digital color scans? (d woods (talkcontribs) 02:32, October 1, 2016 (UTC))

The e-book versions of the bunkoban. They can be previewed/purchased at Jump+, Amazon and Rakutan. -- Deltaneos (talk) 13:30, October 1, 2016
how do u rip the scans thou is wht i am really wonderin? i usually buy my ebooks from ebookjapan but i can't rip from there anymore. (d woods (talkcontribs) 12:53, October 2, 2016 (UTC))
The images are scrambled, like this but worse, and get rearranged before being served to you. If you rip the images, you get the scrambled version. Without the decipher, they're difficult to unscramble. I just get the scenes that I need screencapped and cropped. -- Deltaneos (talk) 15:18, October 2, 2016 (UTC)

The talk header JS code[edit]

Is it possible to use the codes to make the talk header work on every talk page (except user talk pages of course), work for other templates? I mean, how is it to change the name of the template in the code, but still retain its behavior? And will it duplicate if the template is already used on a talkpage?--Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 18:37, October 11, 2016 (UTC)

This is for another wiki, I take it.

If you've copied the block of code at MediaWiki:Common.js, underneath the heading "Add Template:Talkheader if it's not there.", there's a few lines from earlier, declaring some variables, that you also need to copy and put before it:

var mNamespaceNumber = mw.config.get('wgNamespaceNumber'),
    mAction          = mw.util.getParamValue('action'),
    mSection         = mw.util.getParamValue('section');

You can also replace, this:

var vText = $('#wpTextbox1').val().replace(/{\{[Tt]alkheader/, '{\{Talk header');

with this:

var vText = $('#wpTextbox1').val();

The first one is just to prevent confusion with an older name that the template used.

To change the template, just replace where it says "Talk header" in the remaining code, with the name of your template.

-- Deltaneos (talk) 20:02, October 11, 2016 (UTC)

Well, thanks, It worked! However, from what I see, this code only place the template automatically should someone edits a talk page that do not have one, and it does not automatically fill all the talk pages with the template, right?--Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 20:24, October 11, 2016 (UTC)
Yes. Adding it to all talk pages, without someone editing the page is a different beast. -- Deltaneos (talk) 20:29, October 11, 2016 (UTC)
For me now, that's all what I needed, adding it to the remaining talk pages should not be a problem for a bot, I guess. But this code brings a large help to my community. Thanks for the help! Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 20:33, October 11, 2016 (UTC)
Hi. I noticed that the code does not work perfectly as in your wiki. As the code sometimes work and place {{Talk}} on the top of the page, and on other times it will not be placed at all (unlike in your wiki where it always gets placed). Is there any thing we've missed, or is slowing down the process? The JS page where the code is, is here. Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 11:07, October 20, 2016 (UTC)
Can you show me an example of a page where it's not working? -- Deltaneos (talk) 21:19, October 21, 2016 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, as the system didn't notify me that you replied. Anyway, the problem of it not being working constantly has been solved mystically (I don't know how, but probably a universal problem in total JS that was fixed by the Fandom Staff later). However, the script you gave to me turned out to not recognize the Rich-text editor, so it keeps adding the template for every time you edit the talk page. So, do you know how to make it work on both sides? As it keeps repeating itself. Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 16:38, November 25, 2016 (UTC)

University Research[edit]


I am doing a project for university on User Experience and I’m having a look at the yu-gi-oh websites and mobile appearance in particular.

Is it possible at all to get a screenshot of the analytics of the website visitors for the past few months or an Excel spreadsheet? It’d be great to know which pages are most popular over the last year as well as where the majority of your visitors are coming from if that’s possible?

No worries if you don’t have this information. I just thought I’d ask in case you do have it.

I have posted this to both Becasita and Deltaneos as I was not sure who to really post it too as I couldn't find an admin list.

Thank you,

Scorchgid (talkcontribs) 21:29, October 23, 2016 (UTC)

I think Wikia staff use Google Analytics to track such data. I don't know how much they'd be willing to share, but you can try asking at Special:Contact/general.
There is a limited amount of data, which is public. Special:Insights/popularpages gives the number of views on the thousand most popular content pages in the past four weeks. -- Deltaneos (talk) 13:03, October 29, 2016 (UTC)

About Card Art Source[edit]

Hello Deltaneos. I saw that you upload this card art, and I was amazed by the clear quality of it. I've been scouring manga scans, and any sort of card art I crop from them are grainy and too small, mostly due to the diminutive size of the drawn cards on the manga pages. May I know where you got that scan from? Thank you. Ur-Procyon (talkcontribs) 05:22, October 25, 2016 (UTC)

Great White Terror[edit]

"Great White Terror" has 1500 ATK in the original Japanese version, but has 1600 ATK in the dub. Now this isn't like the "Aesirs" where the dub showed different Attributes from the original but corrected it to DIVINE: Great White Terror legitimately has 1600 ATK, even stating in on the website.

So do we use the dub ATK and put a note that it is 1500 in the Japanese version, or vice versa? Lightning Laxus (talkcontribs) 01:07, November 3, 2016 (UTC)

I believe the Japanese version is considered a higher source of canon for such mechanics. So, we'd use the Japanese ATK as the main one and put the dub value in a note. A similar card is "Seven-Armed Fiend", with 666 ATK and DEF in the Japanese, but 1000 in the dub and -- Deltaneos (talk) 21:15, November 4, 2016 (UTC)

Excuse me[edit]

Hi, I'm new here at this wiki, I just wanted to ask something, can we create user blogs on this wikia?

Game Guides[edit]

Oh hi Del, it's me! Certainly been a while hasn't it? Could I ask you a favor, for old time's sake? I added the game guide promos to the OCG Promos gallery index page (they've been waiting on that far too long) but I've found some guides simply don't have pictures on the Wiki. If you could, since you're good at this sort of thing, would you mind tracking down pictures of the Japanese guides for Duel Academy, Spirit Caller, and World Championship 2006 if at all possible? Thank so much! I'll handle everything else. We should talk more often. By the way, did you know this is my tenth year editing the Wiki? I was a high school freshman when I started! Rod (talkcontribs) 02:19, December 18, 2016 (UTC)

I think I've found the Duel Academy and Spirit Caller ones.
Almost. Aside from two odd earlier edits, I didn't really start until summer 2007 and you were not too long after me, which I hate to admit was nearly ten years ago.
I'd be up for talking more often. Do you use Discord? There's a server for the Yu-Gi-Oh! wiki there. A number of other editors are on it. -- Deltaneos (talk) 23:27, December 25, 2016 (UTC)
By the way, remember that "Summer of '69" AMV you had on your page once upon a time? That introduced me to that song, and it's still one of my favorites! Rod (talkcontribs) 01:44, February 11, 2017 (UTC)
I do and I also still love the song. It's a pity that particular video is no longer on YouTube. I would like to see it again. -- Deltaneos (talk) 21:27, February 24, 2017 (UTC)

Set list template[edit]

Hey Delta. Do you have any plans for the current {{Set list}}? I made {{Set list/sandbox}}, which I'd like to try. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 17:29, February 18, 2017 (UTC)

You can overwrite it. The intention behind my version was to use an SMW query to find all the cards in the set and their corresponding numbers and rarities to build the list. I don't think that's a good idea anymore. I think it's easier to manage, if we do what yours does; putting the contents, rarities and numbers directly on the set list page.
(If we want to SMW automate set management, I think cards should query the set list pages, not the other way around.) -- Deltaneos (talk) 19:07, February 18, 2017 (UTC)

The Masked Knights Slate Dub Name[edit]

Looking through The Masked Knights page history, you apparently found this out. Where was this found?--MasterMarik (talkcontribs) 23:54, March 3, 2017 (UTC) The dub ep doesn't reveal any of their names.

That wasn't me. See this edit. -- Deltaneos (talk) 02:26, March 4, 2017 (UTC)

Infobox/Yu-Gi-Oh!/Episode Screenshot value[edit]

Hey Delta. Regarding this edit: how did you make it work and why wasn't it working before? For instance, the VRAINS episodes weren't storing a Screenshot value, but, for instance, the ZEXAL episodes, which use that very same infobox, did have a Screenshot value being stored. So what was the problem? Why did it work for some, but not for others? I read your summary, but that doesn't explain said fact. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 16:33, May 25, 2017 (UTC)

It was just a hunch that the property might not work from inside the <image></image> or <default></default> tags.
I'm guessing that the property was cached on the other pages. Null editing or removing and re-adding the infobox from those pages might have cleared the property. -- Deltaneos (talk) 14:13, May 28, 2017 (UTC)

Gemini vs "Delta Attacker"[edit]

  • So, can the Gemini monsters still be affected with Delta Attacker's effect if they gain their effects?Also, can anyone add provned rulings to the ruling seem on each card? --OnePiece (talkcontribs) 02:36, June 30, 2017 (UTC)
I'm not the best person to ask rule questions. I can't find any official rulings on it. I know there was a similar case with "Secrets of the Gallant". Its rulings say that the Gemini monster would retain the effect, but that ruling has since been deemed unofficial. There are people, who know the game's rulings far better than me. You'd be better asking one of them. -- Deltaneos (talk) 12:29, July 2, 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. I've updated that. By the way, next to the "Edit" button, there's a dropdown arrow. If you hover and click "Edit source" in the dropdown, you get a different type of page editor. In that one, you can edit the data in the infobox. -- Deltaneos (talk) 13:48, August 12, 2017 (UTC)

Margin on Infoboxes[edit]

Hi Deltaneos, I hope you're doing well. I'd like to ask you if you see it fit to add some margin to bulleted items on infoboxes, like in here. The items that are sorted with bullets symbols on the Portable Infoboxes are stuffed too much to the left. So, could you move it a little to the right? I've also tweaked it on my personal CSS to look better if you'd like to see an example.

I'll understand if you prefer not to indulge in such design details; since this is not a wiki so focused on this field, but I just guessed this would better fit the items inside of infoboxes. To better showcase the info.--Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 20:29, August 19, 2017 (UTC)

The spacing on labels, such as the ones for "Age", "Height" and "Weight" on Seto Kaiba (manga), was originally outside the grey background. When it got moved inside, the space around other items, such as lists inadvertently got removed. I've restored their original padding. You might want to remove the margins from your personal CSS, so you don't get double the spacing. -- Deltaneos (talk) 19:41, August 20, 2017 (UTC)
That's good, but I meant items which are sorted by bullet symbols are just too pushed to the left border of the infobox. Like in here. If you add some margin, items sorted by bullets will better fit in, or you have another opinion?--Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 12:02, August 21, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, sorry. I meant to fix that, but I used the wrong class name in my selector. It should be fixed now. -- Deltaneos (talk) 21:01, August 22, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, it is fixed now. Thank you very much.--Luma.dash (talkcontribs) 11:40, August 23, 2017 (UTC)

Bakura and His Name[edit]

Hello Deltaneos,

I was told by another user that I should talk to you about this subject, so they sent me a link to your page. The reason I'm leaving this message is to talk about the changes that have been made to Bakura's page (his character page for the second series anime) and how it has been incorrectly assumed that the dub changed his name to "Bakura Ryou". I understand that this is an old topic. However, after reading thoroughly through the previous discussions on the subject, I found that much of the evidence used to incite the change is not only vague and poorly proven, but also based on what's most likely simple error rather than actual facts.

One of the arguments that was originally used to incite the name change is that the name Ryou wasn't used in the English dub. While that's true, that claim is slightly hypocritical in itself. The name Ryou is never mentioned in the English version as his first name, but it was absolutely never mentioned as the last name; Yugi and company always refer to him as simply "Bakura". It's also important to note that the original manga and pre-dub anime also don't have people address him by his first name; Yugi and company never call him Ryou in any continuity. This trait was one thing they didn't change when dubbing the English version, the same way Kaiba is always called "Kaiba" by everyone except for Mokuba Kaiba, Gozaburo Kaiba, and Noah Kaiba from the anime, who call him "Seto" in English and Japanese because they're his family. A person who continuously addresses the first name is the only difference between the situation with Kaiba and the situation with Bakura; it's the same situation otherwise and honestly should be treated as such.

Another severe issue I noticed in the discussion was the evidence put forth by certain fans looking to get the name changed. From what I gathered from the discussions, the main two things submitted as evidence were a trivia book that apparently used the name "Bakura Ryou" and the Yami Bakura profile on the official site. But after consideration, I've found that these examples aren't nearly reliable enough to warrant the change that was made, especially since the apparent "proof" is either inaccurate or most likely simple error.

This is especially true for the apparent trivia book that was claimed as a source of the name "Bakura Ryou". Just what exactly is this "trivia book"? What's its title? When was it published? Is it something we as a fandom would recognize, or is it some obscure book from a discount store that barely anyone would recognize? Was it even a legitimate book? YuGiOh was and still is victim to having bootleg merchandise made without company approval, including unlicensed cards, books, and toys. The fact that all of these questions go unasked and unanswered throughout the entirety of the original discussion is not only unusual, but also makes its submission as evidence look careless and easily excepted as truth, despite the fact that it's such vague and opaquely explained information.

The other piece of evidence used to insight the name change from the official site is also highly suspect. I think a lot of people in the original argument were too hung up on the fact that it was the official site. Just because it's the official site doesn't mean someone can't make a simple mistake. Like I already mentioned, none of the other characters refer to Bakura by his first name in canon episodes, simply because it's carried over from Japanese honorifics. What happened on the official sight - more likely than not - is that the person translating, writing the page say Bakura's name formatted in the original style of "last name, first name" format - aka "Bakura Ryou" - and made the simple mistake of thinking that was the last name since it was never/rarely mentioned. It's also important to note that Bakura doesn't even have his own profile - this apparent evidence only comes from Yami Bakura's profile, and that format isn't repeated anywhere else on the entire site. And everywhere else on the website, the call him "Bakura", further insinuating that the single profile incident is a fluke rather than a canon name change.

So in conclusion, the name change on the Bakura page feels not only unwarranted, but inaccurate as well. This wiki is a place where I and other fans often come to help answer questions about characters, episodes, and other subjects involved in YuGiOh, and I'm usually more than satisfied with the information it provides. But this is something I feel is too big to ignore, especially when the handful of fans who wanted this name change are in an extremely small minority to the rest of the fandom.

Thanks for your time. MorganaRox96 (talkcontribs) 16:49, August 25, 2017 (UTC)

I believe I've said this somewhere, but for consistency, we also have Marik Ishtar's alter ego named Yami Marik (no discussion here, right? all good) and Yugi Muto's alter ego named Yami Yugi (you also agree with this, right). More generically: "Yami <first name>". For Bakura Ryou's/Ryou Bakura's alter ego, we have Yami Bakura. So it makes sense, by this logic as well, that "Bakura" can be a legitimate first name. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 19:12, August 25, 2017 (UTC)
I can understand where you're coming from, Becasita. But isn't it more likely that the choice to call him "Yami Bakura" was more of a writer's choice? I mean, "Yami Ryou" really doesn't have the same kick to it as "Yami Bakura" does; it seems more like a tactic of effective and memorable naming. And it's not like they refer to him as something other than "Yami Bakura" in Japanese, where Bakura is the last name as well. MorganaRox96 (talkcontribs) 19:30, August 25, 2017 (UTC)
My best guess is the Yu-Gi-Oh! Ultimate Trivia Book by Tracey West. Although this was NCDuelist's claim in another section of the talk page which I decided to mention as well. This book's existence is acknowledged by the Wikia as well as his other books. Scheepybird (talkcontribs) 19:46, August 25, 2017 (UTC)
MorganaRox96, I don't know. I'm used to listen to and read "Yami Bakura". If since early 2000 I was used to listen to and read "Yami Ryou"... I think it's a matter of what you're used to, now. "Yami Ryou" could be as memorable if it'd have been used instead. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 19:48, August 25, 2017 (UTC)
I've copied the conversation to Talk:Bakura Ryou#Dub name revisited to keep it together with the original discussion and posted my replies there.
I'll just reply to one point here; "his books". Tracey West is a woman. +_+ -- Deltaneos (talk) 21:35, August 25, 2017 (UTC)

Template Permission[edit]

I'm in the process of making a multi-crossover Yu-Gi-Oh! fan fiction, and I was thinking of making my own Wiki for it. Which is why I am asking: I haven't made the Wiki yet; but if I do, would you give me permission to upload the "Decklist" and "Tournament Bracket" templates to that Wiki? ("Decklist" because, obviously, a grand majority of my characters will be duelists; and "Tournament Bracket" because I'll likely throw in a tournament every now and then.) If you respond, please do so on my talk page. Please, and thank you! --Yes, it's PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 04:08, August 30, 2017 (UTC)

Good luck on the new wiki.

Template Usage Permission[edit]

Me again.

I was thinking of making my own Wiki dedicated to a Yu-Gi-Oh! fan fiction I'm hoping to write, once I get enough motivation and get my laptop screen repaired. But I was wondering if you would give me permission to use some of your templates for that Wiki (and if you want to be properly credited for your permission)? If so, I was hoping I would use the "Decklist", the "Round 16" template (and possibly the "Round 8" one, if I need it), and the "episode reference" template.

Hope to hear from you soon! --Yes, it's PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 01:36, October 12, 2017 (UTC)

Thank you ever so much for your permission; I truly appreciate it. I just have one question, however: You told me that for the "episode" template, I would either have to install something, or do something similar to the "episode refereince" template for the Avatar: The Last Airbender Wiki. Would the same apply for the "Round 16" template, as well?
And I accept your apology for the "reply" issue; I'm probably at fault for not specifying it. But if you could please post any replies on my talk page, that would be great. Thank you. --Yes, it's PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 04:33, October 13, 2017 (UTC)
I promise this will be the last time I'll bother you with this (or at least I think it'll be the last time); but would you also give me permission to use the "cite web" template, should I use any external links for references? Or is that template the kind of template that's public domain (as I think the Fan Fiction Wiki has one as well). --Yes, it's PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 02:14, October 22, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Duel Monsters II translations[edit]

Sorry. I haven't been as active for some time now. The kanji you've added for Goddess of Whim and Beautiful Beast Trainer are correct.

Note however that the "whip changing personality" thing isn't supposed to be taken literally. The whip isn't actually doing anything to the Trainer. It's more like once she has a whip in her hands, she acts slightly differently; kind of like how a race car driver gets fired up when getting behind the wheel before a race.  HHT   07:52, October 16, 2017 (UTC)

deleted page Card Trivia:Phantom Dewan (It sounds like you're uncertain yourself).[edit]

Hm, i saw your summary edit at the Card Trivia: Phantom Dewan, and i'm not really certain of i got what you said. By what Snorlax monster said in the other card trivia i wrote is that google translator is not reliable and would not make any sense writting that without making a point. Is it the same case? --OnePiece (talkcontribs) 18:43, October 23, 2017 (UTC)

Yes. I'm sorry, my delete summary was a bit rushed.
Google translate is indeed handy, but should not be used as a source. Even if you acknowledge that it may not be correct. We shouldn't post something unless there's some degree of certainty that it's correct.
I think SnorlaxMonster's comment about making a point is that the translation must be relevant. For example toy is a Turkish word for immature/naive. But it's not worth mentioning that in the "Toy Vendor" trivia, because that's obviously not where the card gets its name. Similarly, there's nothing to suggest "Phantom Dewan" is of any connection dewan to the Malaya word for "hall". -- Deltaneos (talk) 21:45, October 23, 2017 (UTC)

Re of the re:deleted page Card Trivia:Phantom Dewan (It sounds like you're uncertain yourself)[edit]

Alright.Thanks for the honest answer. What about this page?

Re: zemia[edit]

Sorry man, i just saw your message now. When i wrote back then, i tought the people would get i was referencing to the times when they used to believe in gods, but okay. Thanks for the feedback.

Anime Navbox[edit]

It might be a good idea the to separate Traps and Spells from Monsters in the Anime Navbox like how the normal Navbox does. Chimera-gui (talkcontribs) 20:20, October 28, 2017 (UTC)

Cyber-Stein References[edit]

I thought the trivia about Cyber-Stein's gun was another reference to the Frankenstein novel. Its OCG name counts as a reference, since in the book, Frankenstein's Monster compared himself to Satan after reading Paradise Lost.

A REALLY Crazy Permission Request[edit]

Before I continue, I would like to sincerely thank you for giving me permission to use the templates I wish to use for my Wiki, should I get right to it. And if I could be honest, I didn't think I'd be wanting to ask for this much; but a discussion on a Discord chat for another Wiki kind of led up to this point.

For my Wiki, would you allow me to include cards that are either released in the OCG/TCG, or exclusive to the anime/manga? Before you answer, it's best that I explain.

I remember a couple days ago when I was in a Discord chat for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Maker Wiki, I frequently asked about a prototype card template a user made, which actually looked pretty polished compared to the other card templates released onto that Wiki. The conversation eventually led to me deciding to make my own template similar to that. However, it also led me to wanting to include real-life/anime/manga-exclusive cards, for the sake of keeping the Wiki tidy. This isn't to say I would want to upload the actual images of said cards, though ('cause even I know that you'd say no to that). And if you still insist I simply make links to those cards hosted on this Wiki, I understand. But if I still wanted to do this, would you let me?

I promise this'll be the only time I'll ask this question. And if you respond, please do so on my talk page. Thank you. --Yes, it's THE-PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 04:53, November 27, 2017 (UTC)

I honestly never thought of it that way. And to be fair and precise, copying the stats (i.e. the Type, Attribute, ATK and all that jazz) is the only thing I would be copying from the cards that are already posted onto this Wiki. Still, thanks for letting me do this. --Yes, it's THE-PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 01:19, November 28, 2017 (UTC)


I get there were some problems with the page, but how Becasita handled it is what I have a problem with. She thought it would have been a waste of time if she had just asked me to stop and assumed I'd complain or would have still keep going if she had. This account was only active for three weeks by then and she thought she knew me well enough to think I wouldn't have listened if she had asked me to stop. --ArcVRains (talkcontribs) 20:28, December 4, 2017 (UTC)

Sure, after Becastia apologizes for how she reacted. --ArcVRains (talkcontribs) 22:15, December 13, 2017 (UTC)

If Becastia had stopped being passive aggressive and avoiding the issue, this would have long been resolved by now. --ArcVRains (talkcontribs) 14:14, December 22, 2017 (UTC)

Removing Minor Duels[edit]

I just find it to be a waste of space to include duels that are briefly mentioned in passing with nothing more to them. There like noodle incidents, where a character talks about something that happens offscreen one second and forgotten the next, but I'll discuss it. Just tell me where.

Even if I did get a little carried away, there is some justification for several of the records I edited, particularly those where one character takes over a duel for another or duels that aren't even talked about but implied. --Finaldraw (talkcontribs) 23:36, December 19, 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, but I'm preoccupied with finals this week. Probably should have made it clear that my free time is limited. Can we continue this either tomorrow or the day after? --Finaldraw (talkcontribs) 01:55, December 21, 2017 (UTC)

Did it, but there's somewhere I gotta be, but I'll be back in awhile to add to it: --Finaldraw (talkcontribs) 22:47, December 22, 2017 (UTC)


Holy crud, Del, you found out info on the gum prize cards? Been so curious about that for a while. Rod (talkcontribs) 00:41, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks. I wish I could get decent pictures of all 50 cards, but I'll try to work with what I can find. I'm really glad to hear from you after all these years. If you ever feel like chatting, you're welcome to join us on Discord. No pressure though. -- Deltaneos (talk) 00:12, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
Aww thanks Del. Interestingly on Google I've seen multiple formats of cards based on the first series that aren't Bandai; in general they all have the same art but different borders. I'm not sure if they're bootlegs, variants of the gum promos, or something else. Rod (talkcontribs) 04:15, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
Yeah. There is a lot of Toei/Bandai-era collectibles that we haven't covered. I would love if the wiki covered all of them, but I try to just focus on one at a time. Otherwise, I just keep getting distracted as I find more and more stuff. -- Deltaneos (talk) 14:08, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Hi! Love your uploads on the Gum cards; always love old Yugi stuff for sure. I've wondered if the file name for the images shouldn't be NNN-GUM-JP-C.png for example? That way the template will recognize Card's name - Set (GUM) - Region - Rarity (I think this one might be unnecessary). Because when you eventually create their "Monster (Gum)" pages and add the OCG-TCG name to the images they will all return you and error because they'll say you are missing the Set "Name--JP-GUM" they'll consider GUM as the Rarity and ask for a blank onto the set field. Just wondering if it'll save you troubles later when you want to create said pages to have an even more complete "Book of the ancient games". If you already figured another path to follow, don't mind me, I mostly just edit and upload and I'm not really into the depths of Templates and stuff (just sharing my experiences with the Bandai cards and the renamings I had to do).--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 19:43, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. As far as I can tell, the game doesn't have multiple sets or rarities or at least doesn't reflect them on the cards, so I didn't include any in the filenames. Similar to how manga, anime and most video game images don't.
Are you referring to {{OCG-TCG card image}}? I would say that template would need to be updated to accommodate of images of these cards, as it was for manga and anime images. (Also it should be renamed or have separate templates for non-OCG/TCG stuff.) -- Deltaneos (talk) 21:18, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Video games[edit]

Hello, me again! Just wanted to say you're doing a great job with the old video game articles. EDS next, yeah? Can't wait; that was my favorite as a kid.

Man I wish I could go back to doing more around here, but all the "niches" I used to have seem to be filled. Rod (talkcontribs) 00:53, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you, Rod.
From what I've seen so far, it looks like EDS was made using the code from DM6, modified to fit the campaign mode from DM5. Might be a tricky one to classify, but we'll do what we can as we learn more about the game.
Ahh, you're far from replaceable, but don't worry if you're not able to contribute much these days. That's no problem. -- Deltaneos (talk) 22:11, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
Oh huh, I never knew that about the code. Is that why EDS and DM5 have separate articles? Rod (talkcontribs) 00:27, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
Maybe. I guess Chaos Maker realised the two games were different enough when he created the DM5 article. -- Deltaneos (talk) 00:37, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
I know in the West, DM6 became Worldwide Edition, DM7 the obnoxiously easy Sacred Cards, and DM8 the obnoxiously hard Reshef of Destruction. WE was the only one I never played, though I never FINISHED Reshef either. Rod (talkcontribs) 00:42, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Chapter 36/95 cover image[edit]

Hi Deltaneos,

I've spent the last day scouring the internet for a better quality image of what you uploaded a few years ago:!_-_Duel_095#/media/File:YGODDuel036.jpg

I'm unsure of the source but assume that it's from the original weekly shounen jump?

I was wondering if you could get in contact with me about either helping me find the original source, or ideally help me getting a higher quality image if you have the source yourself. I am willing to pay for this.

I'm not too familiar with forums so I hope that it won't be too annoying to ask you to send me an email at

Thanks for your time. (talk) 19:19, 4 November 2020 (UTC) Martin

Hi Martin,
Yes, it is a scan from Weekly Shonen Jump. 1998, issue 40 specifically.
I originally found the image on a long time ago. They didn't upload any higher quality scans of that particular page.
A reverse image search on the issue cover shows some Japanese-language shop sites selling it. I have no experience using buying from any of them. One of them has a photo of that page. It's bigger, but at an awkward angle. -- Deltaneos (talk) 14:23, 6 November 2020 (UTC)

SC Name/Lore Quotations[edit]

Hi again. I was wondering if you could do me a huge favor: Recently, I've discovered that I've been putting in the quotations wrong for the Simplified Chinese OCG. To be more specific, all of the quotations in the SC names/lores were "curly", when they're supposed to be straight. (If you look at the current SC name/lore for something like "Abyss Script - Opening Ceremony", you'll see what I mean.) I was wondering if you could please "straighten out" all of the quotation marks for the "Simplified Chinese" names and lores. If you could, I would greatly appreciate it. Please, and thank you! --Yes, it's THE-PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 04:09, 5 October 2021 (UTC)
