Is it possible to rename the old Fire.png to something like CreditsFire.png? Schattenherz (talkcontribs) 07:47, May 30, 2014 (UTC)

Both images need renamed, really; "Fire.[extension]" is far too generic a name to be suitable (this goes for your whole series of Attribute pips, too). For your pips, I would immediately suggest the names "[Attribute] pip.png" or "[ATTRIBUTE] pip.png" (or maybe you have some better ideas); you should reupload the FIRE pip and I can rename the others for you once you decide on a name scheme. You should keep in mind, though, that we generally do not allow fanmade images, so there's a very real possibility the images could end up deleted regardless, though personally I quite like them. ^^ ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:28, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
Ok thanks for the information. Have you read what i've written to deltaneos?
Concerning the rename. How about "[Attribute]_icon.png"?
--Schattenherz (talkcontribs) 21:06, June 1, 2014 (UTC)
Not yet, I will in a minute.
That's too much like a filename that would be used for official images. Thinking about it more, I would actually suggest including "Fanmade" or "Fan" somewhere in the filenames. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 21:27, June 1, 2014 (UTC)
I uploaded fire.png again so you could rename the whole set. Maybe to [ATRIBUTE]_fanicon.png
Anyways the fire.png at the moment doesnt show a image when i do File:Fire.png

Polymerization (Fusion)

Isn't it the time to fuses both "Polymerization" and "Polymerization (Fusion)" into one page. Seriously, the cards database considered them as 1 card (release tree). At least we make the Gallery, Rulings, Errata... go to the same page. --Dlamash (talkcontribs) 08:59, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Even considere them as 1 card. --Dlamash (talkcontribs) 09:03, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
They are separate here because they have different passcodes (this is the same reason Dark Magician and Dark Magician (Arkana) are separate). While I have no comment on whether this is a good enough reason to keep them separate, I will say that {{CardTable2}} has no support for a single card having more than one passcode, nor could such support be added, since, as can be seen with these two cases, the passcode is tied to specific set releases. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 11:23, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

About the Pendulum Scale page

I uploaded a new version of the image, in higher resolution, but no matter what size I put it in, the page looks terrible like this. Can you tell me why?Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 14:02, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

You're probably not using the correct parameter for the image's width. For the infobox used there, it should be "image width" (though I didn't check, so I could be mistaken). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 14:11, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
Here's what I did. What went wrong?Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 07:15, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, looking at the template's code, you need to include "px" at the end of the size. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:46, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. That did the trick.Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 08:56, June 5, 2014 (UTC)

Card Pages

Dino, what's up with the card pages? I've found that it fixes itself if you perform a null edit or just refresh the page, but I was wondering if there was an underlying issue somewhere that was causing the pages to display like that. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 23:22, June 5, 2014 (UTC)

Aah, so I'm not the only one who's been seeing that. It looks like it mostly affects content that is styled via MediaWiki:Common.css and the CSS files included via it; I've seen this so far on navboxes, infoboxes, and decklists. I'm guessing it's something cache-related. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:35, June 6, 2014 (UTC)

Relieve Monster page

I can't access to this page. I loads a very short while then becomes blank like this. Is that because I'm blocked from accessing to this page?Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 02:56, June 6, 2014 (UTC)

I'm getting the same for that page. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 03:35, June 6, 2014 (UTC)
Try again; I removed a stray character that was probably causing it. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:06, June 8, 2014 (UTC)

What are "Update file links (automatic)" moves for?

I've seen them a lot lately. Can non-admin users do it? If so, how?Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 02:52, June 11, 2014 (UTC)

These edits update links to a file after it's been renamed using a script to help automate file renaming. Currently, only movers and admins are able to rename files, and thus, use the script. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:55, June 11, 2014 (UTC)

Where can I put my comment on a fresh image upload?

It seems that comments can only be put on re-uploads. I'd like to specify the sources of my uploads, but I don't know how.Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 04:21, June 11, 2014 (UTC)

You should be able to add the source via the "Summary" box on the upload page. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:50, June 11, 2014 (UTC)
I meant a fresh upload, as for a file that has never hosted on the Wikia before. Let's say you edit a page, you want to add an image to it, you hit the "Image" button on the left of the edit box, then you're led to the dialogs on which there is no such thing as a "Summary" box. After you hit the "Add image", there's nothing you can do about the comments. The one thing you can do is to add the Fair use template to the page of the file. You can only add comments when you upload a new version of that file, as you're led to a page on which there IS a "Summary" box.Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 07:42, June 11, 2014 (UTC)
Apparently it works differently in the default skin, then. I use the Monobook skin exclusively, only jumping over to the default skin to preview or test stuff, and in Monobook there is an "upload image/file" link in the left navigation menu that leads to Special:Upload, which does have a "Summary" box. For the file upload dialog you're talking about, though, you can just add a summary to the file's description page, just as you'd add a fair use template. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:58, June 11, 2014 (UTC)
That seems complicated, and annoying. If I have already posted a file, how can I add the comment then, say to this page File:TimegazerMagician-ST14-JP-OP-2.png?Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 09:22, June 11, 2014 (UTC)
Edit it as you would any other page, add your comment, and save. It's no more complicated than editing any other page on the wiki. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 09:44, June 11, 2014 (UTC)
The thing is I don't know how to add a comment to a page that's already created.=))Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 04:47, June 12, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing here. What exactly do you mean by "comment"? ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 05:32, June 12, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I can't find anything else known as "comment" on a Image file page other than the one put in the File History table. I've seen, somewhere, that that's where you would put the source of the file, or the copyright information, or the fair use rationale or whatsoever. Did you even take a look at the link I gave you? Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 07:21, June 12, 2014 (UTC)
Aah, that. That is basically the file equivalent of an edit summary, and can only be filled in when uploading an image via Special:Upload, where it uses the contents of the "Summary" box. Otherwise, the best you can do is to add your comment to the image page itself as I described above. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:47, June 12, 2014 (UTC)

Token Monster???

I wonder who came up with "Token Monster", and why they did. The term confirmed in all of the official rulebooks is "Monster Token"/"モンスタートークン" in this very order, NOT the other way around.Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 13:12, June 15, 2014 (UTC)

TwoTailedFox created the article with the title "Monster Tokens" in 2006, and renamed it to "Token Monsters" in 2007 for consistency with the other monster type pages. Personally, I would rather have it renamed to just "Token", since that's the term used the most in the English rulebook and in card texts. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:05, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

Can you add more than one postfix/prefix in pages like this one. --Dlamash (talkcontribs) 12:24, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

I think the best thing to do for that case (and other similar cases) would be to split the article into one for ZTIN-LNV and one for ZTIN-LN. There's no real way the infobox could be changed to properly support both on one article. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 15:37, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

OCG-TCG card image template

This template has a problem in some names, like Gaia Power, Brain Control, etc. E.g.: In File:GaiaPower-SP01-TC-C.png has the following message: There is no article for the card "Gaia Power". Could you fix this problem? IgorThunderMaster (talkcontribs) 21:16, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

It's a known issue stemming from SMW, and is affecting a lot of things we use SMW for across the wiki, including archseries navboxes and lists. There's unfortunately not much of anything that can be done to fix it, either; we're waiting on staff to do some work server-side that will hopefully resolve these problems and make SMW work better in general. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 07:08, June 23, 2014 (UTC)

Djinns' Korean name

Can you fix the ruby template here? The ruby text on the Korean name is Hanja (Korean Han characters), not Hangul.Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 09:46, June 24, 2014 (UTC)

There is no good way to do so automatically (it would be almost impossible using just parser functions), meaning the only satisfactory way to implement it would be with a dedicated parameter in {{Infobox archseries}}, which I have no intention of doing for such a minor thing, especially since this is the first case I've seen on-wiki where Korean Ruby text is anything other than hangul. It's also no less accurate than referring to Japanese base text as kanji everywhere, even when the base text contains or entirely consists of Latin, kana, or other non-kanji characters. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:51, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
Can't we just refer to "furigana" and "hangul" as "ruby"? And now you tell me, can't we just use "base text" instead of "kanji". It's of course no big deal about the syntax (like "|kanji=", "|furigana="), but I think it's better to refer those kinds of text as "base text" and "ruby" for a better public display.Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 01:25, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
It's really the type of thing I'd prefer to get input about from the rest of the community; the labels are somewhat historical so I'm hesitant to just change them with no discussion whatsoever. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:06, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
That would take forever. Thanks.Take Fumikô (バカアキ) (talk) 03:23, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
I understand that you're frustrated by how long the collaborative, consensus-driven process can take, but that's the price of working in such an environment. Try asking cheesedude or UltimateKuriboh some time how it feels waiting for me to finally have the time to do template work they've been waiting on for years - in at least one case, IIRC, since 2009. And I've got other projects I've neglected for even longer, some stretching back to within just a year or so of my first foray onto the internet in 2002. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:13, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

Listing anime appearances for movies

So over a month ago, you removed my changes to Dark Magician and Blue-Eyes White Dragon which added their appearances in movies to the infobox. You mentioned in an edit summary that it is trivially easy to add to the infobox (which would also seem to be the case to me, but I don't know specifically how it would be implemented differently). I originally added it to those pages because they were among the 10 pages that did not currently list their appearance in a movie that way (now they are the only 2, since I had added that to all 10 of those pages at the time). I'm not sure how you think movie appearances should be displayed, but I think it is important that movies are not seen as "lesser" appearances than in episodes by only putting them down the bottom of the page where they are far less easy to see.

Interested in your thoughts on how they should be displayed. Also, since there is a current standard for how movie appearances are displayed, if it will be a while before a new system is implemented, would it not be reasonable to use it in the interim? --SnorlaxMonster 13:19, June 27, 2014 (UTC)

I really don't like the idea of displaying an indication that a given card appears in a given movie in the main section of the card's page just because it's also done for anime series - the whole reason it is done for anime series is because we document what specific episodes the card appears in, and that information wouldn't fit in the bottom table given its current layout. So I think something a bit more drastic should be done here: either limit documenting the movies to the bottom table, or remove that entire section of the bottom table, since it already duplicates the main section needlessly for anime and manga series. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:36, June 27, 2014 (UTC)
