Not sure which Kalin that is.

Sorry allow me to introduce my self, i'm elementalknight (Duelist: The Elemental Knight/Le Chevalier Elementaire). As far as my avatar goes, I'm not sure which Kalin it is. At 1st I thought that it might be Kalin Kessler, but it mite be Kallen your talkin about. Either way i thought it was kinda cool with the entire Team 5D's in it. --elementalknight (talkcontribs) 20:11, December 15, 2010 (UTC)

I see what you mean now, maybe Mr. Takahashi might have used Kallen's designs from Code Geass to design Aki Izayoi (Akiza Izinski).--elementalknight (talkcontribs) 22:35, December 16, 2010 (UTC)

This might be a stupid question but when does Code Geass come on? Just curious. --elementalknight (talkcontribs) 23:32, December 16, 2010 (UTC)

Yep in Florida. So wat Ghost In The Shell Stand Alone Complex the only anime they have on thats good any more or somethin?--elementalknight (talkcontribs) 03:32, December 17, 2010 (UTC)

Question, i kno its been a while since i posted on ur talk page. Just curious, but do r u a member of the Code Geass wikia. I'm just askin because yesterday i stumbled across Code Geass on the YouTube link in the Close To You song page.

Nope, I've never even looked at it (that I can recall, at least) to be honest. Are you watching the original Japanese, or the English dub?

Thoughts on Template:Set

  • Generally speaking, I really need to think through these things better before implementing them.
  • A set-name-based system would be more robust than a set-abbreviation-based one, since historically, set abbreviations do not necessarily have a one-to-one mapping with set names.
    • This may be a problem if there are any cases where two unrelated sets with the same name are covered on the same page, but in those cases, the page should be split anyways.
    • Are there any cases where the same abbreviation, with the same lang code, refers to two different sets? The only one I'm aware of is EP1-EN, which refers to both the Exclusive Pack (EP1-EN001 through EP1-EN008) and Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Movie Kids WB Promo (EP1-EN000).
  • Language/region (lang) should be expanded to specify set lang and output lang. Set lang should still be specified in the template (sub)name; output lang should be passed in as a parameter and default to (Worldwide) English. This could be used in pairs to link to a set via its English name, but with the link piped to display the set name in some other language.
  • When SMW coverage of set details improves, {{set}} can be changed to fetch actual set names/abbreviations via SMW instead of having it hardcoded. This means the information is all pulled from the same place, making updates easier (however, it also means any templates relying on {{set}} will probably break whenever SMW breaks/is disabled (though this may not be such a problem, since it should typically get used in templates that already rely heavily on SMW)).

As always, I appreciate thoughts of others, so feel free to post any thoughts or suggestions you may have on the {{set}} system. --Dinoguy1000 (talk contribs) as (talk) 22:41, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

There may also be cases where the link target should differ from the set name (especially when disambiguating set names); the template must be able to account for that. And how to handle cases where the template doesn't get enough info to be able to unambiguously return a single set? (perhaps error text, or maybe just give back the least-ambiguous set name possible with the given info...) ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:06, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

Once again, the template isn't "mine". The only major problem I see with your change is the use of the coloring on the text under the group's name; change it to grey or remove it, and I think everything else is pretty much fine. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:08, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

Weekly Jump dates

I think, but would need someone to confirm, that the cover date for issues of Weekly Shōnen Jump is four weeks after their actual release date. Do you know if this is true? And would it be safe to say that it holds true for all issues (at least since it started to serialise Yu-Gi-Oh!)? -- Deltaneos (talk) 00:50, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Personally, I have no idea. On Wikipedia, we faced a similar problem over a year ago and decided that generally, cover dates are preferred over release dates, since cover dates are usually trivially confirmable (just look at the cover), unless the release date can be explicitly sourced (and even then, the cover date should be given as well).
On a related matter, I've been assuming that when the WJMP promos appear on issue covers, it means the card is actually in that issue - do you know if this is correct? ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:55, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
Also, do you have any comment about the filenames I've been using? I could see a strong argument for expanding "WSJ" to "Weekly Shōnen Jump", and it may make a certain amount of sense to otherwise tweak the filenames... ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:57, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
When it comes to comparing release dates, the actual one would be more useful than the cover one. Since there's only three magazines to keep track of, if we can confirm that it only takes a consistent simple subtraction for each, we shouldn't have the same problem as Wikipedia. Of course, it is still worth while noting the cover one. Maybe I should add a cover date parameter to {{Infobox/Yu-Gi-Oh!/Chapter}}.
The filenames are fine. I don't have preference over abbreviating the name or not. Although, if using the long one we should probably use "o" instead of "ō". Same with the article name. In Yu-Gi-Oh! macrons tend to get left out in English romanisations (Yūgi Mutō → Yugi Muto). And the American Shonen Jump doesn't use the macron. -- Deltaneos (talk) 18:07, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
You mean, comparing between different languages, or different magazines? And while we certainly don't have the variety of magazines Wikipedia must contend with, we *do* have more than three. I am currently aware of Weekly Shōnen Jump (Japan), V Jump (Japan), Shonen Jump (U.S./Canada), and Banzai! (Germany), and there are undoubtedly other magazines we could create articles for (mostly versions of Shonen Jump in other countries). That being said, if we can confirm that a given magazine's release date is constant versus its cover date, we should certainly use that (for instance, the American Shonen Jump always goes on sale the first Tuesday of the month before its cover date (although subscribers often get their issue 2-3 weeks before that)).
Macron-less English publication is actually a somewhat more general trend for Viz - they aren't afraid of using macrons in names (for instance, when he was first introduced in Shonen Jump, Gaara's name was written as "Gāra"), but they generally seem to prefer not using them. Even so, WSJ is "above" YGO, and the stylistic decisions made for YGO shouldn't necessarily dictate our handling of WSJ and other such topics. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:51, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
Comparing to anything other than issues of the same magazine. e.g. the cover date for the V Jump issue that Ride 16 was first printed in is January 2011. The tankōban it's reprinted in was released December 29 2010. A timeline based on cover dates will list the reprint as coming before the original print.
I didn't think cover dates for any others would come up too much. But there's also the Swedish Shonen Jump. It and Banzai have four promos between them. I think Yu-Gi-Oh! has also been serialised in Comics House and Comic Champ. -- Deltaneos (talk) 19:55, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
I wouldn't be surprised if we could find release dates for at least a few issues from official sources, if we look around some. We'd be able to use these to extrapolate as necessary (though we should note such extrapolations, and source them whenever possible). Comparing cover dates to reprints seems like a good metric for establishing the latest possible time an issue could have been released, but it still leaves us a certain amount of ambiguity.
I think if we allow for cover dates for these, even if we ourselves don't go looking for them, they'll get filled in by others over time. It certainly doesn't hurt anything to support them, at least. ;) ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 21:17, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, I forgot to answer your question about the promotional cards... I don't recall seeing any visual proof, but it makes logical sense. -- Deltaneos (talk) 02:15, January 5, 2011 (UTC)
It is a pretty safe conclusion, at least... I don't suppose we have anyone about who could confirm or debunk this (and if it's not correct, tell us what it really means)? ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:36, January 5, 2011 (UTC)

Red Nova Dragon vs. Enemy Controller

Sorry if I sound little hasty, but after -dest- said yes that I can resolved Red Nova Dragon's effect ever if the target is removed via Enemy Controller in same Battle Phase, my opponent continued to argue that Red Nova Dragon won't work anymore. This section have explained his answer. --FredCat Ta.P.F.P.J.R.W.S.Th.P.S.C. 21:37, January 9, 2011 (UTC)

I am definitely *not* an expert on rulings, but as far as I can tell, Red Nova's effect should resolve regardless of whether it's still in your control when its effect is supposed to resolve (since removing Red Nova from play is not a cost). I'm not as sure about whether Red Nova's effect removes it from play at this time, even if it's no longer in your control.

Based on what is in a lot of other card articles, I would say that the regular counterparts to the Toons should be related. There are plenty of things listed in archrelated that make much less sense than that. "Ojama Yellow" is categorized as being related to "Mokey Mokey (series) because the both appear in the artwork of "The League of Uniform Nomenclature", for example. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 00:56, January 11, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not convinced myself. The only real argument I could see being made for Ojama Yellow/the Ojamas being related to the Mokey Mokeys is that both are low-level, low-power monster series with high-power members. In reality, Ojama Yellow and Mokey Mokey could have been replaced with any other Level 1 or 2 monsters on TLoUN's artwork for similar effect. BEWD and BETD are only tied together by virtue of the latter being a toon version of the former, which means (to me, of course) that Toon Dragon would be related to the Blue-Eyes archetype (as it is), rather than BEWD being related to the Toon archetype (a very tenuous connection, at best). On Wikipedia, this (comparing BEWD/BETD to Ojama/Mokey Mokey) would just be a variant of OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 01:09, January 11, 2011 (UTC)
I realize that. I believe it was User:Missign0 who added most of the card-art based archrelations to the card pages. That being said, I do feel some of them are valid, such as "Kozaky" being related to the Gagagigo (series) and "Inpachis", since those are covered in a lot of images. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 01:22, January 11, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, there's a decently stronger argument in that case. Really, it just shows that this stuff should be handled with at least a modicum of thought, rather than "HURR THESE APPEARED TOGETHER ONCE ON THIS TOTALLY-UNRELATED-TO-EITHER-OF-THEM CARD SO THEY MUST BE RELATED". The card trivia pages should be used for incidental overlap/relations between cards, as opposed to adding the cards themselves to archetypes that they otherwise have absolutely nothing in common with. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 01:28, January 11, 2011 (UTC)
The card trivia pages do tend to be used that way, it just gets added to the main article too, which I would agree is ridiculous. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 01:30, January 11, 2011 (UTC)

...apparently Judai used the same card enough times that the template couldn't handle it. Taking a guess from looking at the Template:Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime appearances page, I'll assume that the template can't show more than 50 appearances currently. I honestly think the templates should be adjusted to show 150+ appearances, as if I ever get around to putting the template in "Polymerization", it's not even going to cover half of it. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 19:17, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

Counting, it seems that there are currently 58 episodes of GX that Clayman is listed as appearing in. The template *should* just ignore any extra parameters, but I don't know if that's what actually happened or not, since SMW has apparently been disabled again (at least, that's what the third box on my user page claims =D ). That really is some *bad* breakage, though, isn't it? We're probably going to have to move this functionality straight into {{CardTable2}} itself so that we can trivially provide a backup when SMW goes down like this. In any case, I've updated Elemental Hero Clayman so that it'll properly display any number of GX anime appearances (you can use either slashes (/) or commas now, in addition to the up to 50 unnamed parameters, but you can't mix styles). ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:52, January 13, 2011 (UTC)
I assume that all the redlinks I'm seeing at Clayman's article are due to SMW. So slashes and commas will let list any number of appearances, but "|" will not. Do I have all that right? Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 01:20, January 13, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, the redlinks are all SMW's fault. I have a nice little fix in mind, once I start working on the /core separation on CardTable2. =D And yes, assuming #arraymap has no upper limit on the number of items it can handle. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 01:47, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

Archetype templates removed from bottom of card pages?

I'm not sure if this has anything to do with Monobook, but archetype templates have been removed from the bottom of card pages - e.g. the Egyptian Gods template not appearing at the bottom of Obelisk the Tormentor, where it should be. Was it removed recently, or is this a problem with using Monobook? Toob (talkcontribs) 12:57, January 14, 2011 (UTC)

It's because of a change made to {{CardTable2}} with the intention of reducing the total number of SMW queries across the wiki (with the hope that doing so would decrease how often the devs have to disable it for performance reasons). I'm not sure if the functionality will ever be re-added, but it is currently still present in the sandbox version. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:47, January 14, 2011 (UTC)

Cyber Dragons

I was notified by Wasn't that someone has seriously messed with the archetype support cat for "Cyber Dragons". If you check Template:Cyber, it's listing every anime/manga only card as "Cyber Dragon" support. I checked a few of the card pages, and it archsupport1 = Cyber Dragons" isn't showing up on them, so I'm thinking it may be a template issue. If not, could your bot help revert everything? Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 16:12, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

It's not just a problem with the Cyber Dragon section of {{Cyber}}, it's the same across every section of that template and of {{Hero}} as well, and it's even displaying on the {{ArchetypeNavbox}} metatemplate, which hasn't been edited since July. It's more likely that this has to do with the fact we finally got the upgrade to MediaWiki 1.16.1 and SMW 1.5.5, meaning it will probably fix itself in a couple of days. If not, we'll need to file a support ticket with Wikia staff. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:00, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
Wow. Alright, I'll guess all we can do is wait around for now. I don't know if it's related, but the "gender" parameter of Template:Infobox/Yu-Gi-Oh!/Character is completely borked too. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 17:03, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
That seems to be Extension:Negref getting uninstalled or borked in the upgrade; Delt wrapped it in {{IfSemantics}}, leading me to guess that it was packaged with one of the SMW extensions. If that was the case, it must have been forgotten about in the upgrade, so this'll be another support ticket issue. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:13, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
Wonderful. Looking around a bit, a bunch of other parameters are borked too. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 17:37, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
Are they all using #negref? If so, they'd all get fixed in one fell swoop once this is taken care of. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:46, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
I checked the template, and yes, the broken parameters are all using negref. All of those parameters are usually references with Yu-Gi-Oh! Character Guidebook: The Gospel of Truth, so it makes sense that they're using negref. Incidentally, I'm not sure why the "gender" parameter is using it, unless it put in to use with bishonen male monster spirits. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 20:02, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Karakuri Haipa

Dear Dinoguy 1000 This is K20a. *Sigh* I Do Apologize for not putting up a link to my information but The Karakuri mdl 818 Haipa is confiremd. So if you need proof here's the link : So please can u put the info on to the STOR TCG list thank you :) —This unsigned comment was made by K20a (talkcontribs) 18:09, January 25, 2011

As others noted on Talk:Storm of Ragnarok, YugiNewz doesn't appear to be a reliable source. There is no harm in waiting before we post new information about the set.

Some guy called Sbox7 keeps editing the Life stream dragon article, adding in effects it doesn't have and changing the one it does (He seems adamant that it changes the user's LP to 2000, even though 4000 is clearly stated on the card). Anyway, i'm tired of my inbox being full of notifications that he's edited everything so is it possible to change the editing privelages on the card before an edit war breaks out? It would be much appreciated :) Neonian (talkcontribs) 18:15, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Have you tried talking to him? Leave a message on his talk page and see where it gets you (and for the record, Life Stream Dragon is on my watchlist as well ;) ). He seems to be misunderstanding the purpose of the "lore" parameter, and tries to keep readding the anime effect. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:33, January 26, 2011 (UTC)
I'll leave a message on his talk page, but from the looks of it many people have tried and he simply ignores them. Neonian (talkcontribs) 18:39, January 26, 2011 (UTC)
It's been one person leaving messages from what I can see, and they really didn't explain why what he was doing was wrong, but just asked him to stop. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:11, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Old Cards

That is the best image that I can pull off with the equipment I have. I also own some older cards so getting good scans is easy. Irohanihoheto (talkcontribs) 20:11, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

I wish I had a scanner, I'm bound to have cards we don't have pictures of (especially given the size of my collection; too bad it's almost entirely English TCG cards)... =D ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 23:19, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

Dark magician edit

The 5th OCG/TCG Dark Magician card only shows up in Shonen Jump. Why do you keep changing it to that card? Senakorea (talkcontribs) 08:04, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Our image policy recommends using an image of the most recently-released English version of a card for its card page. The JUMP Dark Magician is the most recent English version, so that is what we use.

You could.... {{Poll}} —This unsigned comment was made by ShEAN (talkcontribs) 03:33, January 29, 2011

While this is true, it's not something you should just add to the main page. If you're wanting to add a poll, you'll have to start a discussion on Forum:Yu-Gi-Oh! Wiki Community Discussion to see if there is community support for any poll in the first place, and then to decide what the question and options should be. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:51, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

Exactly what information in this list is not present on our article? Also, could you please post this to Talk:Storm of Ragnarok (and continue to do so in the future instead of to my talk page, for the time that it is fully protected)? ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 15:41, January 29, 2011 (UTC)


How long as CardTable2 had an attack name parameter? I literally just noticed it. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 03:25, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

No idea, it's been there as long as I've been here in my most recent stint (since around last September-ish, I think). Deltaneos might be able to tell you more specifically. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:27, January 30, 2011 (UTC)
Fair enough. I'm pretty sure it's not included in even a single card page right now. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 03:30, January 30, 2011 (UTC)
That's possible. I can confirm this via another tracking category once the CardTable2 update has been deployed, if you want to see (or you can just start going around, adding it to pages as appropriate ;) ). ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:00, January 30, 2011 (UTC)
