Image problem - (With downloading it)

I was trying to download the file (Sorry hit publish instead of back in preview) and am getting a file with the files size of 20.9kb rathe than the 97kb file that it is listed as. I have tried it from the file's main page and opened up the file to a new tab and I keep on getting a substandard version. do you have any idea what is going on?

I'm not sure what the issue might be for you, I was able to download the file just fine myself. When you say you opened the file in a new tab, do you mean Media:RedEyesDarknessDragon-TF04-JP-VG.jpg? That's how I downloaded the file. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 07:03, February 16, 2014 (UTC)
Yes that is what I meant. Right clickto bring up the pop-up window and pick the selection Open link in new tabe from the selection windows gives you. However I did find a way around it. I think it revolved arounr hitting Alt-A or Alt-R or some varient of that before trying to download. I wish I could be more specific but I just went from Vista to 8.1 and I cannot duplicate it now.

Pendulum Monsters

Hi! I'm YRPOtaku169! 21:25, March 11, 2014 (UTC)
Hello. I am one of the administrators for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Custom Wikia, where we post fake cards and fanon-based material. We are trying to figure out how to do Pendulum Monsters in our template, when we ran into some snags, mainly that none of us can truly use wikia coding.
I saw that you updated this wikia's CardTable2 to have a special gradient for Pendulum Monsters, and we were wondering if you might do the same for our CardTable2. We will provide you with access to the template if you choose to accept this, though the code for our template is not exactly the same for yours.
Thank you very much.

Hello YRPOtaku169, I'm assuming you're referring to the YCM wiki, and in particular to w:c:ycm:Template:CardTable2. Your template appears to be an old copy of our own {{CardTable2}}, from before my massive rewrite in 2011. Because of this, adding support for Pendulum Monsters there wouldn't be any simple feat, for me or anyone else; ultimately what you'll need is someone willing to rewrite your template like I did for ours (a process that should be simplified by the fact that YCM doesn't use SMW, and so you don't have any SMW-related code in your card table to mess with). More short-term, I would recommend simply to carefully study the changes I made to add support (and, in particular, how the code around the changes relates to the appropriate code in your template); there's not actually all that much to it, but without an understanding of the additions you've made to your template over the years, I would have a hard time seeing exactly where the additions should go. Over the longer term, though, you should feel free to study our template and the changes I've made to it over the years, and to snag whatever improvements and simplifications you want; I would recommend just tackling one bit of the code at a time. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:30, March 12, 2014 (UTC)

Question Re: Dark Psycho Eye

I noticed that the GX06 image being used Had "EN" in its' title rather than "JP" which normally indicates an different artwork between the OCG and TCG. That being the case I tried some variant File names in Preview to try to find another file and couldn't. Next I pulled up the GX06 page to look at releases and their dates and found according to the page that the game was never released in America but has been released in Europe and Australia.

Now that the set up is complete. Is the GX06 Page wrong and needs to be updates or should that File really need to be changed to have the "JP" designation in its' name? I think the latter since in all other cases I've seen if there is only one image from the GX or TF sets it is always listed as a "JP" as that is where the image is released first.

It might not matter in the long run, However...

I would suggest asking whoever uploaded that file. I don't know very much about GX06, and I didn't participate in getting card images from it uploaded. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 14:00, March 22, 2014 (UTC)
I'll try that, however his contributions seemed to have stopped in 2011. Just took another look at his contributions list and all his contributions were done on the same day. The day he joined. That being the case I switched it over and took care of the two links.
