Why do you think that the independent word "roid" should not be capitalised? Are you basing that notion on the fact that a majority of the cards in the archetype don't have "Roid" as an independently standing capitalised word?

In all cases when used independently in a card name, "roid" is capitalised. Referring to, for example, "Missile Roid" as a "roid" makes zero sense. Referring to, for example, "Rescueroid" as a "Roid" makes sense, because "roid" is a suffix stylised to be uncapitalised.

The question is not how it appears in card names, but how it appears in effects. In the case of "roid" (and "sphinx"), every support card's effect shows the name in lowercase. The only way we'll switch the articles to uppercase is if the support cards start getting reprinted with errata that capitalize the name. See Talk:Hunder#Capital H for some discussion on this, and note that this has been our policy on the matter for over a year, so if you really want to try changing it, I'd suggest starting a topic in the forum. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 12:21, March 22, 2014 (UTC)
I see; I didn't realise "roid" wasn't capitalised when used in card descriptions. I retract my OP.

Infobox CSS

This does the main infobox layout:

.infobox.list-noicon caption {
border: none !important;
border-radius: 5px 5px 0px 0px !important;
background-color: #A52A2A !important;
color: #fff;
table.infobox {
border: 1px solid;
border-color: #A52A2A !important;
background-color: #F5F5DC !important;
border-radius: 0px 0px 5px 5px !important;
border-spacing: 2px !important;
.infobox tr, .infobox th, .infobox td {
padding: 0 0 0 0 !important;
margin: 0 0 0 0 !important;
.infobox th a {
color: #fc0;

This is to override hard-coded lighter colors:
Note: it is not 100% the same as the original hardcoded infobox, as that one had three levels -- so if you prefer to override the hardcoded stuff, #A43734 is for the regular headers and #A3443F for the subheadings. In that case I would also suggest using #A15E54 for the tiny headers in the collapsed stuff.

.infobox th {
background-color: #A3443F !important;
color: #fff;
.infobox th:last-child {
background-color: #A43734 !important;
color: #fff;

May also be able to drop a few !importants.

Thanks Yatalu, I've directed the other admins' attention here. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:39, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

Pendulum Scale revert

Hey I saw your Undo revision, I didn't quite get that you where talking about different pendulum scale values other then card effects so dont bash me too hard about it, what is said on the page originally wasn't that specific. Thank you and I do apologise. --Rainbowcera (talkcontribs) 23:12, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

It's not a problem; as you said, the text in the article really isn't very clear. But yes, it is referring specifically to different blue and red Pendulum Scale values on the same card. Cheers! =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 23:22, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

"Named _____ in the Japanese version"

Why use such a long phrase in the opening of an article, in a way that breaks up the flow of the sentence? The notation I originally put is intended to mention the Japanese name like an aside, which it ought to be. It also fits better with the standardized notation used in places like Bulbapedia and Wikipedia. Blueapple128 (talkcontribs) 12:45, April 18, 2014 (UTC)

The Japanese name isn't just an aside, and should not be treated as that. In addition, for all that we borrow from them, we are not Wikipedia, and have no obligation to do anything the same way it's done there. What I changed the page to is the same structure used on archetype/series pages when the Japanese name doesn't translate to the English name, so it has usage precedent here, unlike your form; if you want to change this, I would suggest starting a discussion. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:46, April 18, 2014 (UTC)

Welcome Back

Now that's a tough one my friend! It's been 2 years I've stopped collecting because of time. I've changed countries twice, but still with the same girlfriend haha! I'm almost done with uni and I'm finally starting to work in movies with hectic hours! But yeah, it's a tough question. As long as I can! Anyway, what did I miss, Fredcat finally pissed someone off ? --Wilimut TalkMail Paris, 08:53, April 24, 2014 (UTC)

I am discovering new templates as I go one for exemple Template:Card table set. Is this template mandatory now or still in test phase? Also, for some sets, the release date is known on the set page but does not appear in the template, how to fix that? Best.--Wilimut TalkMail Paris, 09:49, April 24, 2014 (UTC)

Monster Type pages

Monster Types are always written with the word "族" in the OCG, so I think it's best to include it.Take Fumikô (talkcontribs) 07:56, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

And they are almost always written with "-Type" (or appropriate translations thereof) in the TCG. That doesn't mean anything; the term "Zoku" is not intrinsically part of the Japanese name of any individual Type. This has come up in the past as well. If you still disagree with me, I'd strongly suggest you start a discussion in the forum, as I am not the only editor with this view. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:07, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
Also, can you please explain your removal of the Portuguese names from those and other pages? We do want to document the Portuguese version of the game, same as for all other official languages. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:12, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
Not always with "-Type": when I said "always", I meant on the type line AND in the card text. Most Portuguese terms can't be confirmed due to the lack of the official rulebook and scanned card images, and I can tell most of them are made up, or unofficially translated (even French, Italian and Spanish terms sometimes are, too).Take Fumikô (talkcontribs) 08:27, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
To the best of my knowledge, card texts in English also always use the term "-Type"; my point still stands.
I beg to differ: especially with the Portuguese version starting to be printed again, confirming Portuguese names is just a matter of tracking down appropriate card images. And them being hard-to-find isn't an excuse either; Spanish card images are also quite difficult to find (just ask UltimateKuriboh). If you're sure a particular Portuguese translation of a term is just made up, and you can't find an official term after a reasonable effort of searching, then you can remove it - yes, this is tedious and time-consuming, which is exactly why whatever made-up translations we had have sat there for so long.
As for unofficial French, Italian, or Spanish terms, now that the official card database offers these languages, it should be trivial to confirm all such terms and replace them where necessary. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:37, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

Card Table Issue?

This happens on some card pages. Do you guys already know about this issue, and if so does something with the card table cause it? --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 20:01, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

I've noticed that on the Dragon's Rage and March of the Monarchs card pages. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 20:16, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
You're talking about the image, right? It's a known Wikia-wide issue, and Wikia are looking into it. There's not much we can do to fix it on our end, so we're mostly stuck just sitting and waiting for a fix. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 20:45, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
