OCG-TCG card image template

The {{OCG-TCG card image}} template has a problem again. For example, the file "File:DiamondCoreofKoakiMeiru-PRIO-JP-OP.png" has the following message: This card's name is "Diamond Core of Koa&39;ki Meiru". Could you fix it, please? IgorThunderMaster (talkcontribs) 21:01, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

Should be fixed, thanks for the report and sorry for the trouble. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:27, November 17, 2013 (UTC)
The {{OCG-TCG card image}} template has a problem one more time. For example, the file "File:ShinraStoolhouette-LVAL-JP-C.png" has the following message: "Error: you must provide the name of the card via the "name" parameter!". Could you fix it, please?

Before I forget, this problem is happening with all "Shinra" monsters images. IgorThunderMaster (talkcontribs) 03:10, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
This is a side effect of the card's page being renamed without an edit following the rename; it can be fixed just by editing the card page and saving, with or without actually changing anything. I've already done so for Sylvan Stoolhouette, which fixed File:ShinraStoolhouette-LVAL-JP-C.png. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:50, December 2, 2013 (UTC)


In regards to your edit to Pumpking gallery, I noticed that too, but that also means a problem arises: the current filename is incorrect, and it clashes with the other EU image since they're both Unlimited Edition. Looking at the video the original uploader got it from, Tainted Wisdom also has different text, but the correct filename for it again clashes with an existing image. How should these files be named? --SnorlaxMonster 11:48, November 19, 2013 (UTC)

The issue here is that Metal Raiders is one of the sets that was reprinted when the Magic-to-Spell change occurred in 2004 or so. Prints prior to this, including the 1st Edition print, would have used "Magic" when referring to Spell Cards, whereas prints following it switched to "Spell" in such cases. However, UDE also took the opportunity to errata select card lores separate from the Magic-Spell change, and that's what's going on with Pumpking (I can't find the images you're referring to with Tainted Wisdom; can you link them?). However, the situation is somewhat more complicated here: The earliest English-language print of Pumpking was the North American 1st Edition print, and as can be seen, it uses the same wording as one of the European prints. However, that same lore is used on its database page, meaning the other lore can't be a more recent erratum. That suggests that it is an earlier, European English-only version of the effect text, but we would need to see an image of the 1st Edition EU print to confirm that.
A lot of this may seem irrelevant, but it all ties together: the Pumpking erratum is associated with the more general Magic-Spell change, and for affected prints of affected cards we would upload the Spell version with a filename that uses "-Spell" (the Magic version is unadorned). However, because neither Pumpking print uses "Magic" or "Spell", we can't tell for sure which is which and have to fall back to extrapolating from other prints and related official sources. This exact issue was raised in the Skype admin chat yesterday, though the discussion was just the other admins noting the situation (and Delt pointed out that Harpie Lady Sisters is a similar case, though I haven't looked myself), and then me coming along a few hours later and talking my way through it, up to the point you see above; we didn't decide how to actually handle the naming.
Sorry for the wall of text, there was quite a bit to go through there. =/ ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 13:20, November 19, 2013 (UTC)
What video is this? --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 15:27, November 19, 2013 (UTC)
Here. UltimateKuriboh linked it in his edit summary on Pumpking's page. --SnorlaxMonster 15:29, November 19, 2013 (UTC)
I suggest to use the Legendary Collection prefix (LC01) in the image name so in the future we will not have the same problem if another reprint of Metal Raiders comes with a special collection or tin. This why its good idea to point out the collection release also under the booster release in the errata page, so no one mistak between the two similar prefix. --Dlamash (talkcontribs) 16:28, December 1, 2013 (UTC)

changing the link

Is there a way to change all links thats go to Duelist League 13 for example to make it another link to Duelist League 13 participation cards page, without editing every page separately? --Dlamash (talkcontribs) 15:52, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

There are ways to automate the process, but no matter how you do it, if a link isn't added by a template, the page the link appears on needs to be edited individually. Unless you're planning on creating articles for the Duelist League events, though, I wouldn't worry too much about getting all the links updated immediately. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 16:07, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

2002 Booster Pack Tins

Hello. I've never seen a 2002 tin with any other assortment of packs. I have three of the six (American) English version tins, and all say on the backs that they contain 2 LoB, 2 MR, and one Magic Ruler. I've seen unboxings of these tins and all of them contain this arrangement. Only this wiki and places copy/pasting from it say otherwise. There may be a European edition but I have seen no record of such a thing. Besides, the mistaken configuration on the wiki is impossible. Labyrinth of Nightmare was released in March 2003, and the 2002 tins were available at least for the 2002 holiday season (I got the Blue-Eyes tin for Christmas that year according to my photo archives). The article was using the 2003 tin assortment (and the image of the 2003 BEWD tin for that matter. I have yet to fix the thumbnail to show the 2002 BEWD tin.). I'll restore the corrected information if you do not have any evidence of error on my part. Have a nice day. :) Usernarne2 (talkcontribs) 23:53, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Aah, so this may be a case of the contents of the 2003 series being mistakenly copied and used for the 2002 series; if you check the history you'll see that the article was created with those contents listed. Sorry for the revert, then, and happy editing! =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:45, December 6, 2013 (UTC)


I created this article and then noticed this article existed already. :P So either of them has to be deleted and the other one has to be fixed. Could you do it, please? I can replace the name in the card's article and stuff myself. LegendaryAsariUgetsu (talkcontribs) 21:32, December 7, 2013 (UTC)

Your article has the proper name, and I'm the only one that has touched the second one (ignoring the rename and subsequent deletion tagging of the redirect), so I'd say just salvage whatever bits you need from it and then redirect to yours. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 21:36, December 7, 2013 (UTC)
Well, I work in the mangas, I don't know how to create OCG cards articles. xD So I just copy/paste'd another similar article and modified it. I don't really know what's right or wrong in my article. :P If compared to yours, mine has the Breakdown as an addition, and the list is different, so I guess those are the only things which need to be fixed in my article. LegendaryAsariUgetsu (talkcontribs) 00:06, December 8, 2013 (UTC)
That's fine, I've gotten it all done. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 06:11, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

Chinese cards sets

Look like Konami is going to publish Chinese cards source, just a head-up warning for an updates. WinterNightmare (talkcontribs) 05:16, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. First Konami reintroduces Portuguese cards, and now they're doing Chinese cards, makes me wonder if they've got something bigger planned. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 07:40, December 14, 2013 (UTC)
