Original Print & Reprint in Set Card Lists

I have an idea of adding print status in all Set Card Lists so anyone know which card is reprint and which is not. See this page for example (Set Card Lists:Starter Deck: Yugi (TCG-NA)). So, is that OK? --Dlamash (talkcontribs) 14:46, March 20, 2015 (UTC)

This has come up with the other admins and I, actually, and we're of mixed opinions about it. Personally, I think the information should go in the "Breakdown" section (or a similar location) on the main set page. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 16:11, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
I didn't see the Idea of putting this information in "Breakdown" section without using wikitable. Personally, I think "wikitable sortable card-list" is the best location for this kind of information as it has sorting feature, for example if I click on "Category" then click on "Print" it will show me the Original Print Normal Monsters in the set (Starter Deck: Yugi (TCG-NA)) near each other, so no need to look for them in the whole table, also this is the best location if the set has more than 20 NEW cards with a lot of reprint cards. --Dlamash (talkcontribs) 17:36, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
The information would be presented in a mix of an inline list and ranges of cards: for example, for the case you mentioned of a set introducing a lot of cards but also reprinting many others, it's very likely that the new cards are going to be mostly grouped together, in which case instead of listing every individual card we'd just say something along the lines of "cards X through Y were introduced in this set". Personally, I'm not convinced that the information is important enough to justify its inclusion in card lists; note that, for example, we no longer note passcodes in the lists even though these are much more relevant to the average player (though that relevance is still almost none). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 23:03, March 23, 2015 (UTC)
While this maybe true in new sets, the old sets have their new cards not grouped together, see Set Card Lists:Starter Deck: Yugi (TCG-NA) for example. And I personally think that this information is important, every one want to know which card is new in the set instead of entering every card specific page. --Dlamash (talkcontribs) 09:30, April 11, 2015 (UTC)
The old sets where that is true are limited in number, and that number is not increasing. There is no good argument for introducing a new column for every set list to express information that has no relevance to gameplay, that the average player does not care about (do not make the mistake of thinking that the fact that you and other hardcore players care about this information means that anything like a majority of readers do as well), and that can be adequately communicated on the set page itself. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 12:34, April 11, 2015 (UTC)

March 2008 Lists

I don't know if you have the rights to do so, but could you please edit the protection properties for the March 2008 Lists, so I can move it to "March 2008 Lists (OCG)", and make the necessary edits tomorrow? Thank you. --Yes, it's PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 02:12, April 6, 2015 (UTC)

Done. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:18, April 6, 2015 (UTC)

Humpty Grumpty

I really don't mean to get on your bad side; but if for "Humpty Grumpty", you mean there being a red link for where it originated in the Korean OCG, that was an honest mistake. I was doing this just before I left for work, but I forgot to rename the article on that page to its confirmed TCG name. --Yes, it's PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 01:03, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

That's not the problem; the problem was that you renamed the page without also renaming its gallery, rulings, tips, or trivia pages. If you don't have time to rename all of the pages associated with a card page (or set page or whatever) when you rename it, don't do it; either someone else will be along to rename it regardless, or it will still be there when you have the time to take care of it properly. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:09, April 12, 2015 (UTC)
I think I've realized that problem just last night. But I'll try to do better. (I can't make a promise to that, since there's always the chance I'll screw up again; but I'll still try.) --Yes, it's PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 11:26, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

mod request

I think its a good time to select the mods, luka isn't going to be part of the selection because of somethings going on but please look into the requests and all--Legacyhunters (talkcontribs) 06:23, April 15, 2015 (UTC)


In case that you haven't noticed, recently we have Noble Dragon Magician revealed, which is the first Pendulum/Tuner/Effect monster and as expected our card table failed to support properly once again. I tried to understand and mimic your edit that support Xyz/Pendulum to apply here but I think this time the solution is a bit more complicated than that. Better I should ask an expert instead of trying to mess things around :D.

Since we are on this topic, can you provide the support for |type5 and other combinations of its in case of Konami went retard with something like Synchro/Pendulum/Tuner/Effect in the future? Blackwings0605 (talk) 05:12, April 17, 2015 (UTC)

I'm aware of the Pendulum/Tuner thing; I haven't looked at the code yet to see exactly what's going on, but if I had to guess I would say it's because type4 is being ignored for some reason in this case. I do intend to have a look in a bit, but I'm not in any real hurry since it's currently only one card affected and the error is just a minor styling problem rather than something more serious. =)
I would actually prefer to do an overhaul of the type parameter system rather than adding another parameter; it'll have to be done eventually regardless, and I'd like to get it done while I still have some idea of how the monster properties actually work.
If you have a Skype profile, would you like to be added to the admin chat we have going there? You can add my Skype if so; I'm phillip.patriakeas there. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 13:56, April 17, 2015 (UTC)

mod request

hi I haven't heard any news on the mod request can you update me?--Legacyhunters (talkcontribs) 04:39, April 21, 2015 (UTC)

To be perfectly honest, the other admins and I have been dodging this because none of us ever deals with chat; as far as I know, no major editors here frequent chat at all, and I personally don't visit it ever unless I've been specifically asked to for some reason. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 05:07, April 21, 2015 (UTC)
the thing is I only recommended people because I thought we had a chance, yugioh arc v might change things for this wikia, but the fact is the chat is still used and that spammers do come on from time to time, maybe we can transfer over the current mods to the candidates seems fair and worth a try, having mods will make them stay much more active and the users can have someone they can relate to--Legacyhunters (talkcontribs) 06:20, April 22, 2015 (UTC)
I've gone ahead and granted chatmod to EskaTheOgre-, since something had to be done about this and I've interacted with Eska some over Skype; I've left the other requests open for now. If more mods are still needed, I'll look at them, though, and would also consider you if you don't have any objections to it. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 06:30, April 22, 2015 (UTC)
