Weird question

Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's - Episode 046 is using slanted quotations. I've tried copying the text and using find and replace in Word, Wordpad and Notepad. None of them work. Know of any way to get them to use regular quotations without changing each one individually? Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 01:08, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

Notepad's Find-and-Replace function works fine for me on Windows 7... Maybe it has issues with extended Unicode on earlier MS systems?
You should be able to use Notepad++ to do the replaces if nothing else works for you. If you know how to use regexes and are willing to try that route, the opening curly double-quote can be matched via \u201c, and the closing one via \u201d (you can match the curly single quotes via \u2018 and \u2019). I will add all these replaces to the rules on my bot, so that whenever I run it again it'll correct that stuff. ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 01:53, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

Cover up

Thank you for put my page back to it original version. I don't understand what up with that user who deleted emptied my page like that? --FredCat 09:55, November 3, 2011 (UTC)

Probably a throwaway account created by a vandal you've interacted with (e.g. by reverting or something) in the past. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 16:34, November 3, 2011 (UTC)
Hm... if you're referring to IP codes, then maybe but for that account name; no - it's first time I met that person since that time I post the comment here. He's just assjerk. --FredCat 17:02, November 3, 2011 (UTC)
No, that account could easily have been registered by someone you interacted with before. There's nothing preventing people from editing as an IP and then registering an account, or even registering and editing with multiple accounts. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:20, November 3, 2011 (UTC)
I see... Didn't you know that you can just block IP number, make it lock-up from be able to create more account from there? --FredCat 18:44, November 3, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, but that's imperfect (that is, there are ways around it), and there's no way to definitively know what IP(s) an account has been used from without Checkuser rights. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:10, November 4, 2011 (UTC)

FredCat's Judge Lists

If you have click my letter d in my user name (in case you knew about it already), you will see that I get them all fixing up comfortable and less repeat (same result but different cards, so grouped them up) to make them easier to understand and read. That unfortunate cost me 9 articles to save 15% of time to read them of furious and ragequit. --FredCat 01:25, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

Cool, good work! =D ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 01:28, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, took me whole day with a massive headache in the morning. --FredCat 01:33, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
I know what that's like; back when I was doing my massive cleanup/rewrite of {{CardTable2}}, whenever I'd finish an editing session I would literally be physically disoriented (and hungry!). =D ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 01:36, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
Ah gee, but at this time, it's actually fastest I ever done in a while - edited more than 10 articles in single day (nearly hour) with loadcrap of information changes must be intense... I worked it on and off (had to help my parents with their conflict problems) --FredCat 01:39, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
So I see! Breaks aren't necessarily bad (and indeed, it's not unusual for me to take a break when I'm working on a template and hit something I can't quite wrap my head around at the time; the break helps me clear my head and get my thoughts in order (and sometimes even lets me think of better ways to code the template!)). =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 01:43, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
Break ain't only thing I did, I also took time to swallowing the medicine that can tough my brain back to normal and dissolving the rest of trouble. TBH, I jumped back and forth between two areas on Notepad to find where they were such to be. --FredCat 02:00, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

Card Trivia:The Lady in Wight - "Lady-in-Waiting"?

Hello, I saw that you changed "Lady-in-Waiting" into "Ladies-in-Waiting" on the following page: Card Trivia:The Lady in Wight. Why exactly do you feel that this is not the correct spelling? The supplied link is a link to Wikipedia that has the title as such. Please do not be offended by this, I am just trying to understand. --LordGeovanni- (Talk To Me) *Kupo* 02:52, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

"Lady-in-waiting" is a noun, which means that it needs to be pluralized when used in the specific manner it's used on the trivia page. The plural form of "lady-in-waiting" is "ladies-in-waiting", as can be seen in the Wikipedia article. ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:56, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
I am sorry, I still do not understand your reasoning. Why does the card "The Lady in Wight" (as a singular "Lady") need to be compared to "Ladies-in-Waiting" when there is only one "Lady" in both the card name and the card's picture? --LordGeovanni- (Talk To Me) *Kupo* 03:24, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
Because the card is being compared to the general concept of ladies-in-waiting, not to any one particular lady-in-waiting. "Lady-in-waiting" refers to an entire group of women (it was an informal title), most of whom have little else in common, as opposed to any particular person. If it helps any, imagine a line of trivia for the card "Dandylion" that reads, "This card's name is a reference to dandelions and lions." ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 05:45, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

Patrician of Darkness

I had just checking the Talk Page of that monster... You know, the Zombie Dude that look like a vampire and has attitude to redirect the attack to other target monster. It is just fill with random shit, like they can redirect the attack to opponent's other monsters. (Which is illegal move) --FredCat 23:30, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

Blank it. =D ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 23:35, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. They are just trolling and spamming it too much without any User Names. >_> --FredCat 23:39, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

Hidden Arsenal 4: Trishula’s Triumph

Why did you redirect Hidden Arsenal 4: Trishula’s Triumph to itself? --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 00:16, November 6, 2011 (UTC)

I didn't; I moved it from the title with the curly/fancy apostrophe to the one with the straight apostrophe. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:21, November 6, 2011 (UTC)
Well will ya look at that. The pages I was on still used the fancy one. I couldn't see the difference before, but I'll correct them. --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 00:31, November 6, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, MediaWiki doesn't make it easy to see little differences like that (it's a million times worse for whitespace and Unicode control characters, though =P ). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:50, November 6, 2011 (UTC)

Hide factbox

I know how to stop pages from borking by doing this. What I don't know is why this happens (beyond very long Japanese names). So I'm sort of curious. And other than adding the hide factbox template, how do we fix it? I've even seen it several episode articles recently (thought it was isolated to card pages). Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 03:55, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

It's caused by SMW unintelligently "cutting" Ruby markup at very stupid places when it displays in the factbox - the invalid markup breaks the factbox table, and this breaks the whole page. The only way to fix it other than hiding the factbox is changing how SMW handles such long values (only two realistic choices: don't try cutting values that appear to contain HTML or wikimarkup, or simply don't output such values). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:51, November 7, 2011 (UTC)
I see. Does anything else cause that? If not, I guess it was the Japanese names in the episode infoboxes too... Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 04:59, November 7, 2011 (UTC)
Well, in theory, any block-level HTML element stuffed into a Type:Text property could do it; it's only limited to Ruby for us since that's the only such HTML we normally use with SMW (bold, italics, and the like don't count since they're inline elements and can't break the page). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 05:52, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

JUMP ain't Official TROLOLOLOL

I am thinking of to lock "Dark Magician" front page from having it change back and forth in two different images. That user who just revoke your edit think this site is for Asia. That's just wonderful counter-respond. --FredCat 03:55, November 8, 2011 (UTC)

I saw his first switch, but haven't followed up yet. I'll have a look in a second. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:47, November 8, 2011 (UTC)

The "Neo Space" archetype

The most recent errata for "Elemental HERO Divine Neos" names a "Neo Space" archetype, which would consist of "Neo Space" and "Neo Space Pathfinder". It seems this is to clarify that the latter card can be used as a Fusion Material, since it had "Neos" in its OCG name. Any objections to just redirecting Neo Space (archetype) to "Neos" and adding a paragraph to that article regarding it? Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 01:36, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds good to me; the "Neo Space" cards already seem to be tagged as part of the "Neos" archetype, so there's no problem there. "List of "Neo Space" cards" and "List of "Neo Space" support cards" should be redirected to List of "Neos" cards and List of "Neos" support cards, respectively, though (and possibly "Neo Space (archetype)" should have redirects as well). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:01, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

"Wights" VS "Skull Servants"

Hello, on October 31st, you moved Skull Servant onto Wight. Today, without comments or questions, User:IgorThunderMaster changed it back. Please consider looking at the Talk:Skull Servants page so that we can discuss this. --LordGeovanni- (Talk To Me) *Kupo* 01:17, November 15, 2011 (UTC)

The page was moved back; I'll have a look at the discussion in a minute. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 05:40, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
