Any idea why the "Kuri" page is listing itself as both a series and an archetype? As a result, the navbox has a blank support section with a redlink to the support page. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 19:34, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

Category:Series was added to the page manually. Remember that annoying glitch that causes pages to appear more than once in #ask queries? That's causing there to be two records for "Berserker Crush". One of them uses an old version of the page, which lists it as a support card. So {{ #ask: [[Archetypes Support::Kuri]] OR [[Anti-Support::Kuri]] }} is not coming up blank, so the infobox thinks "Kuri" has support cards, so it's classing it as an "archetype". -- Deltaneos (talk) 21:20, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
That's troublesome. Removing the series cat just causes it to categorize as an archetype too... Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 22:04, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
Isn't something currently running (at a very slow pace) to correct that glitch? How's that progressing? --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 22:36, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
I think that repair might have finished. The "Gusto" cards all have only one entry now. There is another repair going on now, which is currently at 83.0528%. iirc and uiam (which I might be), you can't stop that repair just before upgrading to a newer version of SMW and then continue it after the upgrade. If that's true, that repair must have been started recently, in which case it's working a lot faster. -- Deltaneos (talk) 22:44, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
Black Corn is still listed twice in the All "Number" cards list, and it was one of the cards mentioned when the scan I was talking about was started. Hopefully the ongoing scan will be the one to fix it and the "Kuri" problem, then. --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 22:55, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
I've been watching the repair for a few months (no, seriously). Unfortunately, it's all been the same repair operation; it carried right through the upgrade. Somewhat worryingly, it hit a high point at about 83.3%, then dropped down to its current point around the time of the upgrade, and it's been sitting there for a few days now. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:25, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
If it's become idle, that's unfortunate. But the sooner we restart it the sooner it will finish, so we probably shouldn't wait around if it doesn't seem to be progressing anymore. --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 17:52, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
Not necessarily. This is the only wiki I've ever used SMW on, and this is my only experience with the SMW repair operation, so I can't say whether restarting it would really make it progress any faster, though I can say I rather doubt it. This isn't the first time it's stuck at one spot for a few days, though, and we should give it another week or so to start moving again before we seriously think about restarting it. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:55, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
This should be a list of every card duplicate currently on this wikia:
Berserker Crush, Big Wave Small Wave, Castle of Dark Illusions (DM), Courageous Charge!
Cursed Waters Level 3, Degeneration Wing, Elemental HERO Inferno, Hero Solidarity, Jutte Fighter, Labyrinth of Nightmare (card)
Lightning Wallaby, Number 50: Black Corn, Relationship, Revoke Fusion, Rigorous Reaver, Spell Economics
Synchro Blast Wave, Take One Chance, The Seal of Orichalcos (original), Trojan Blast

That repair thing seems to have finally finished, but not everything seems to be fixed. -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 05:04, November 7, 2012 (UTC)
I noticed that it finished earlier today (and have been thinking about getting it started again, more for the hell of it than anything =D ). What in particular still looks broken? ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 06:25, November 7, 2012 (UTC)
I had that thought as well.
My previous message of course. -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 07:34, November 7, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, right. I frankly have no idea of how we might try to fix those short of trying another repair, or something more drastic like page deletion (and even that wouldn't guarantee clearing SMW's caches). =/ ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:23, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

Reconstructed effect candidates

Do you know of a way to get a list of each anime/manga card that's using an "NC" image? Any card with such an image should have the reconstructed effect template added to it. There's also cards with the "thumb over part of the text" problem, but there's obviously no way to track that one. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 01:10, October 30, 2012 (UTC)

[[Card Image::~*-NC*]]? ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:56, October 30, 2012 (UTC)
Ah, that's why that didn't work. I just put "Image" when I tried a semantic search. Alright, thanks. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 14:42, October 30, 2012 (UTC)

Falzar, sometimes I get slightly annoyed that your bot does all the repetitive stuff, since I occasionally enjoy repetitive edits (which is why I moved all the "Heraldic" stuff yesterday, I felt like some repetition). Then I realize it just gives me more time to do other stuff that's actually more enjoyable. So thanks. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 16:53, November 1, 2012 (UTC)

You can tell the other you that there's still the repetitive "thumb over part of the text" search and add task ;) -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 23:02, November 1, 2012 (UTC)
There's also the prospect of looking through all the OCG/TCG cards which have been featured in the anime/manga and checking for the same things, which could keep a crack team of researchers busy for weeks. =D ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:54, November 2, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I know. There's always something to do. My favorite "thumb-over-text" case is "Giant Rex". Appeared in two different animes, four times. We still don't know what it does, because there's a thumb every single time and it never actually used its effect. For the latter point, its mostly a DM issue, really. There were some in the other series, but probably not anywhere near as many in all three as just DM by itself. Never will my "to-do" list get smaller. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 12:12, November 2, 2012 (UTC)


Ok, "Heraldic" is still "Heraldic". Based on "Advanced Heraldry Art", all the "Medallion" cards should be moved to "Heraldry". But some of them will end up sounding very clunky if we don't reverse the words. "Change Heraldry" sounds bad, "Heraldry Change" or "Change of "Heraldry" sounds much better. Do you have an opinion on which of the three styles we should use. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 00:02, November 1, 2012 (UTC)

I thought we normally waited to get a card's official English name before renaming it to use the official English archetype name (to avoid having to rename cards more times than necessary)... Am I wrong?
If I am mistaken, though, I personally like "Heraldry Change" the best. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 01:11, November 1, 2012 (UTC)
Previously, once one member of an archetype is known, we've renamed all other members accordingly, so as not to have archetype pages appearing to contradict themselves. I don't ever recall a case where we've waited, actually.
I'm usually against any other changes and just do a straight-up word replacement, but doing that in this case just sounds wrong somehow. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 03:01, November 1, 2012 (UTC)
Okay then, I'm not sure where I got that impression. I just seem to recall a discussion somewhere where that was more or less said; I guess I imagined it or something. =D ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:05, November 1, 2012 (UTC)
It very well could have happened, but apparently myself and everyone else that renames card articles never saw it. But given how topics get lost in the forums and on talk pages, I could actually see that happening. XD. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 03:09, November 1, 2012 (UTC)
When "Evilswarm" was revealed as the TCG name for the Verz, the majority wanted to wait to rename members so that names wouldn't need to be moved extra times. But then certain people disregarded that and renamed them all anyway. My personal opinion is that if English names will imminently (within a few weeks or so) be revealed, those pages should not be changed, but for those that won't be known for months or more, we make appropriate renames for consistency's sake. --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 19:01, November 1, 2012 (UTC)
That's probably the discussion I was thinking of; thanks for the pointer. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:06, November 1, 2012 (UTC)
Ah, that. For me, I wanted to hold off because I wasn't personally sure if the DT evidence was enough. Obviously others disagreed. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 21:12, November 1, 2012 (UTC)

Not that I know of offhand; I've commented in that forum discussion with a bit more detail on what I know.
In the meantime, I have to ask why you don't ever seem to take advantage of jQuery in your JS code for the wiki? I first noticed this in your auto-signing code, but didn't bother asking then. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:21, November 10, 2012 (UTC)
Because I'm not familiar with it. -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 23:10, November 10, 2012 (UTC)
Aah, I figured that might've been your reason. While you won't get much in the way of advanced jQuery usage, you can start gleaning some tidbits by looking over some of the other code in Common.js, if you're interested in learning some. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 23:17, November 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Phillip, how's it hanging? Mood fabulous? Life perfect? Got laid yet? (totally rhetorical questions, don't bother answering...)

Ever lost a bookmark? Actually, do you even use bookmarks? Anyway, I accidentally found a long-forgotten bookmark today and it led me all the way back here. Though this time I thought I'd be the one to say hello. Don't take everything I say too seriously, 'kay?

Except for this last part. Fred just informed me that your prestigious group of admins just increased (or is about to, couldn't really figure out) by two members. Which reminded me that you are an admin as well. Listen, I have a favour to ask of you. If I remember correctly, it is among your options to delete pages from this wiki, correct? If that's still the case, I would very much like you to delete any and all of my subpages. Y'know, all those that begin with "User:Monte.../". It's not urgent or anything, you can do it whenever you like. Assuming it's not too much trouble and you can do it. --ΜοntΕchrísTο95 01:01, November 11, 2012 (UTC)

[insert squicky answers here]
I have a ton of bookmarks, and use a fair number of them regularly (though mostly for webcomics, I must confess). I'm sure I've lost some of them over time, and I came ridiculously close to losing all of them a few months back (installed some software that saw fit to install a toolbar in all my browsers, which then proceeded to log my profile out of Google Chrome... which is tied to my Google Accounts profile... which used a randomly-generated, 100-character-long password that inadvertently hadn't been stored anywhere, so I had to reset the password, which required wiping whatever browser data was tied to my Google Accounts account =P ).
Yeah, that's no problem, though I can't help but ask why. ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 01:08, November 11, 2012 (UTC)

@Phil Squick-squick, huh? I take it it's a zero out of three then. Don't worry bro, same here. Anyway, you can't seriously expect me to read all that stuff you posted so I'm not even going to pretend I did. I'll tell you though, that webcomics bit really touched my feelings. As to your question...that's a story for another night (is it even night there?..) and I'm in a bit of a hurry.
@Falzar FZ Wow, this post just expaned a lot, didn't it? Don't know if we've spoken before Falzar, nice to meet you anyway. Thanks for the assistance.

I assume that last option wasn't always there... Thanks! --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 02:58, November 11, 2012 (UTC)
The option to follow pages you delete has been a preference for as long as I can remember (as far back as 2007, at least), but Wikia's version of Special:Preferences is decidedly non-vanilla, so its location may be somewhere else in a vanilla installation. ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:00, November 11, 2012 (UTC)

Search Blank

I just ran into this problem - a search system that kept bringing me a blank page(s) - and I thought that I would let you know after some talk with Goldy, which he just came back to life from some kind of his own crash. Would you mind let WikiStaff know about this issues? --iFredCat 16:28, November 13, 2012 (UTC)

Whatever it was, it seems to be fixed now, so I don't think a report to Wikia is necessary. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 20:28, November 13, 2012 (UTC)
Well, just keep an eye on it if it happening again. I just stumbled through it while doing a research for my next chapter (Naga's Tales, if you don't know) --iFredCat 20:32, November 13, 2012 (UTC)


...It seems that there's a problem with the Japanese ruby in the episode/chapter template. :/ LegendaryAsariUgetsu (talkcontribs) 00:53, November 16, 2012 (UTC)

I tried looking at this earlier, but couldn't figure anything out. Is {{Infobox/Yu-Gi-Oh!/Chapter}} the only template doing this? ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:35, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
I didn't get it well. :| You fixed Rank 1 of ZEXAL by adding "Hide Factbox"? But Rank 2, for example, is also fixed now and doesn't have that. LegendaryAsariUgetsu (talkcontribs) 21:31, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
Nope, I didn't fix anything. The problem actually lay with Property:Ruby Japanese chapter name, which Delt fixed a while after my ineffectual attempt. I never actually touched Rank 1, Delt was also the one to add {{Hide Factbox}} to it. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 22:33, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, sorry, didn't notice that. xD So, it wasn't a problem with the typing, right? LegendaryAsariUgetsu (talkcontribs) 23:07, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
Depends on what you mean by "the typing". The problem was with the type of the property in question. ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 23:13, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
By "typing" I meant the typing in the article itself, y'know. Like, when we edit it. But guess I got it now, thanks. ^^ LegendaryAsariUgetsu (talkcontribs) 16:10, November 17, 2012 (UTC)

<br />

So, recently there been a problem with <br /> or <br> in the Featured cards section of the episode. I was wondering if this was a bug or a glitch. I notice this problem when I created a Featured cards for episode 218. At first, I ignored, but it continue to create huge blank space. When I look back at previous episode, it start to affect some of the Featured cards. It shouldn't have create a huge blank space, but instead it should be like episode 200 in which there aren't any blank space and everything is in order. I don't understand how this wasn't affect yet, but can you fix this problem? WinterNightmare (talkcontribs) 19:14, November 16, 2012 (UTC)

It seems the parser has been changed to add a <p><br></p> between instances of {{Decklist}}, though it doesn't happen on every instance (it would actually be more general than that, but I don't feel particularly like exploring for the boundary conditions for the insertion). The solution, for now at least, is to remove the br. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 22:39, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I will go through all the episode and remove some of the br. WinterNightmare (talkcontribs) 22:42, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
Actually, I think I figured out what the problem was. The problem is the {{Decklist}} with |monster alone. If the Decklist is with monster, magic or spell, traps, the problem doesn't occur. But if the Decklist just have monster, then the problem occur which will cause huge blank space. WinterNightmare (talkcontribs) 23:07, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
I noticed that on the ep 218 article, though there shouldn't be anything about the coding of {{Decklist}} that causes it. I wonder if it also happens in cases where Decklist only has either Magic/Spells or Traps listed. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 23:15, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
[1], Decklist that only has either Magic/Spells or Traps listed aren't affect. Just the monster alone is affect. WinterNightmare (talkcontribs) 23:33, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
Just some lines breaks between #if: parsers, which got interpreted as new paragraphs when enough of them were grouped together.
Related; we have suggested before that the template should automatically add some space, so we don't need to separate uses with <br /> tags, but couldn't decide on how to overwrite it for Side Decks, which usually don't have a space between themselves and Main Decks. -- Deltaneos (talk) 12:58, November 17, 2012 (UTC)

Follow to Watch

Was this change spurred by the forking topic? Not sure if you're done with the changes yet, but after clicking "Watch" on the wikia toolbar, it still changes to "Following" rather than "Watching". --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 19:36, November 23, 2012 (UTC)

Yep. Before Sannse mentioned it, I'd never really considered changing it back via the interface messages. =)
I noticed that. I don't think I missed any interface messages (I paged through Special:AllMessages, Ctrl+F'ing for "follow"), so I suspect it's the JS using hardcoded strings, which I don't know how to fix (Falzar might be able to, since he seems to have a better grasp on JS than me, but I dunno if he'll bother with something so ultimately minor). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:45, November 23, 2012 (UTC)
Cool. Just wanted to let you know, since you don't use the Wikia look I figured you might not have noticed it. :) --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 19:58, November 23, 2012 (UTC)
You mean change that, no idea. It's the same problem as Forum:Post signing reminder js#Preview_button. -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 08:09, November 24, 2012 (UTC)

Unused file notice

Note to self (or any other admin ;) ): create MediaWiki:Nolinkstoimage with the text There are no pages that use this file.

Wikipedia linking

Would it be worth linking back to Wikipedia for terms such as "Game Boy Advance", either in-article, or on the template?--TwoTailedFox (My Talk Page) 02:51, November 30, 2012 (UTC)

Possibly... I'm certainly not against the idea. Maybe see if Delt has any thoughts on it? ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:58, November 30, 2012 (UTC)

Languages on cards

I'm all for that to be put into motion, but I had some ideas I wanted to test, to see if they can be incorporated to help automate some pages (like Card Set Ratios). I'll strike up a dummy template, and test on that.--TwoTailedFox (My Talk Page) 17:54, November 30, 2012 (UTC)

I've got a proof-of-concept at Template:LanguageTest (it's ugly and barren, but functional), but a lot of the additional information will only show after the database updates. I have to make some small additions to the CardTable (such as creating string properties, as the queries don't like page links). The testbed is at 2002 Booster Pack Tins, and so far, Dark Magician is the only one with the correct information filed in order for the queries over at Template:RatioAuto to work.--TwoTailedFox (My Talk Page) 19:22, November 30, 2012 (UTC)
We need properties on the card images to be able to search and/or numerically list the number of cards; we can't use the properties on the main card article itself, but it may be possible to use the same properties if we semantically acquire the data from the new text-only listings (as the page link ones didn't work); New properties were just a smaller headache, and an easier solution, partially because we don't need to worry about semantic cross-contamination, but if you want to reduce property counts, it should be possible to condense it. Also, one more thing, is Gold Rare now using -GR rather than GUR?--TwoTailedFox (My Talk Page) 19:45, November 30, 2012 (UTC)
Semantically transcribing the data would seem to be easier, then. Still need to work out a few little kinks (like flip effect monsters, which we've never semantically documented). Once the data is incorporated into existing template, I'll start a Blitz campaign to get our images updated, and where necessary, converted to use the correct file naming conventions.--TwoTailedFox (My Talk Page) 20:01, November 30, 2012 (UTC)
