Hello, I'm Tyrant Slayer. Welcome to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Wikia, if you have any questions you can ask me and I'll be glad to help you. --Dragon Slayer 20:54, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Hello, Tyrant Slayer. I'm Dinoguy1000, and I'm happy to meet you. I don't expect to have many questions about the wiki software, since I'm well-versed in it already, but I may have questions about policy and whatnot specific to the Yu-Gi-Oh! wiki. --Dinoguy1000 21:18, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Ok, if you have any problems and I cannot help you ask to this guy: User:Deltaneos, he is always willing to help and can answer most of your questions. --Dragon Slayer 02:48, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Card Table

Thanks for your additions to Card Table template. -- Deltaneos 01:41, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Hey, don't mention it. ;) Just feel free to yell at me if I make an edit that breaks something and I don't catch it... =P =D --Dinoguy1000 17:21, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Deletion of Category:Miscellaneous redirects and Template:Unsorted r

Why did you delete Category:Miscellaneous Redirects and Template:Unsorted r? I'm not necessarily contesting the deletions, but a heads-up or a good reason would have been nice... --Dinoguy1000 18:57, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Was there any use for it? Was it being used? -- Huajun Chen 20:39, 13 November 2007 (UTC) Copied from User talk:Dinoguy1000#Deletion
--Dinoguy1000 17:14, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
Well, they weren't being used ATM, but they were based off of Wikipedia's own redirect sorting system (unless I'm sadly mistaken, of which there's actually a pretty good chance). In any case, why not just put {{delete}} on them first, instead of just deleting them? --Dinoguy1000 17:14, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
It's what I do, lulz. -- Huajun Chen 22:08, 14 November 2007 (UTC)Copied from User talk:Dinoguy1000#Deletion (again) (please, read my talk page policy next time...)
--Dinoguy1000 18:19, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Meh, whateverz... At least, give me a heads up next time, though... --Dinoguy1000 18:19, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
We'll see. Also: there's no need to copy-and-paste what I wrote on your User Talk back onto my talk page. If you want to, sure go ahead, but it's not required or anything. -- Huajun Chen 01:28, 16 November 2007 (UTC) Copied from User talk:Dinoguy1000#Deletion

I'm aware that there's no need or requirement to; however, I prefer for the entire discussion to be saved uninterrupted in at least one location, to make it easier to reference it for whatever reason in the future should that need arise. --Dinoguy1000 17:28, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

I don't know if you this or not but using {{subst:User:Dinoguy1000/ctp}} instead of {{User:Dinoguy1000/ctp}} will embed the code directly instead of leaving it as a template. It might be better to use to use this in case User:Dinoguy1000/ctp is vandalised or deleted or if you change the input parameters. -- Deltaneos 18:33, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I knew about substitution, I'm also aware of the possibility of vandalism (although any damage inflicted by vandalism *should* be contained to user talk pages, and on top of that, I'm prepared to take full responsibility should any real problems occur via vandalism of the template). As for deletion, I see little reason for that to occur, since it's in my userspace. And lastly, if I should ever change the parameters, I'd make sure to leave the originals in as a fallback until I could update all the references. If you still have concerns about transcluding versus substituting the template, feel free to say them to me, I'm all ears... ;-) --Dinoguy1000 17:23, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
