Image Uploads[edit]

As per Yugipedia's image policy, please upload your images as PNG images. You can use this site if you don't know how: https://image.online-convert.com/convert-to-png MadRest (talkcontribs) 15:47, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

You've been uploading video game screenshots; it's better to save these directly as PNG rather than saving them as JPG and then converting to PNG. Alternatively, if they are saved as PNG when you take them, and you've been converting them to JPG before uploading, you can simply drop a step. In general, I recommend against converting JPG images to PNG since none of the information that was lost when the image was saved as or converted to JPG can be restored, and any compression artifacts from the JPG will be faithfully preserved in the PNG. It's always better to capture an original PNG image when possible. ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 22:04, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
I can replace most of those JPG format files with PNG ones easily enough, sure. Spirit Caller has a status screen where you can check your statistics against most opponents, and those come with a static screen that features opponent displays. However, that does not cover characters faced only once during the game, and replacing those files would need me to start the game from scratch. And I do not know when I will have the time to go through Spirit Caller again.
Modata (talkcontribs) 03:44, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
Don't worry too much about those one-off characters, then; we're currently (slowly) working through the games too, and we can get these whenever we finally reach Spirit Caller ourselves (though that will probably be some time off, so anyone who'd like to pick up Spirit Caller themselves to replace those images is more than welcome to). ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 09:42, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
I had enough time during the last few days to play through Spirit Caller enough to get to the Duelist in Disguise event. But rather than replace the picture in Beauregard's page silently, I decided to ask if these pictures are fine. If they are, I will continue taking the screenshots this way. https://i.imgur.com/fhUIKjb.png https://i.imgur.com/shc0fLC.png https://i.imgur.com/hlfyRXd.png Modata (talkcontribs) 21:52, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Those look fine to me, as long as they're being taken at the console's native resolution (it looks like Spirit Caller is an NDS title, so that should be 256x192), and as long as you don't upload the copies from Imgur (last I checked, Imgur applies lossy compression to all uploaded images, so using images from there isn't much better than just uploading JPEGs). ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 00:42, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
Took those three screenshots again, now with proper resolution. https://i.imgur.com/cpUBAZ2.png https://i.imgur.com/ZCQHsXt.png https://i.imgur.com/NNRYusV.png As for the imgur part, I keep the original files on my computer. I simply used imgur to upload them for previewing here because I assumed picture testing could be seen as misusing file uploads for personal purposes. Modata (talkcontribs) 22:41, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
They look good! You can start uploading at your leisure; if you'd like to upload images in batches, you can use Special:MultipleUpload (pointing it out here since it isn't linked from the sidebar's toolbox). Let me know if you need help or have any questions. =) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 14:37, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Image resolutions for uploads[edit]

I would like to know what is the desired resolution for screenshots of the PSP games.

Modata (talkcontribs) 15:54, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Whatever resolution the games run at natively. Checking the Wikipedia article, it looks like that's 480x272px. I've updated the image policy accordingly, too. ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 18:38, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Missing card texts from Tag Force 6[edit]

https://pastebin.com/kMdpua88 Wrote the text from the card "High and Low" in Tag Force 6. I also provided a translation. But my attempts at giving it a proper entry on my own did not go too well, so I have to leave that last part up to anyone else who might be up for it.

Modata (talkcontribs) 16:47, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Aah, the current page needs renamed first. Poke me later and I can rename and create the TF06 page, or if you'd like I can rename the page now and you can have another go at creating it. =) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 22:04, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
I think I will go with the second option, if possible. Modata (talkcontribs) 22:40, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Okay, I've renamed it and updated all links that were looking for the anime version specifically. Let me know if you need any help. =) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 23:43, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
The navigation template for High and Low's pages is not connecting both of its card entries yet. (Unless that's because I accidentally deleted the redirect...) At any rate, thank you very much. I will be trying to provide the in-game text for all the game original cards introduced in Tag Force 6, as no game they were in was translated and several of their reported effects were incorrect. Modata (talkcontribs) 00:20, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Nothing some null edits couldn't fix. =) (For the record, I started at the anime page, then null edited the main page, then finally the extra pages.)
No problem, I look forward to your additions and corrections. ^_^
ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 00:45, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
I have the card texts for the last few Tag Force 6 cards ("Red Nova", "Chain Resonator", "Mirror Resonator", "Zushin the Sleeping Giant", "Hand-Holding Genie" "Scrum Force", "T.G. Drill Fish", "T.G. Metal Skeleton", "Jormungardr the Nordic Serpent", "Fenrir the Nordic Wolf") but these cards do not have pages for their Tag Force 6 entries. It does not really matter if they get those or not, at any rate, because all of those cards have been released in the card game since and their effects stated at the time are mostly correct.
"Converging Wishes" does not show its navigation template. Modata (talkcontribs) 15:45, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
In those cases, the Tag Force 6 lores should be added directly to the pages using the tf06_lore parameter. "Red Nova" already has a Tag Force 6 lore provided, though it's the only one I looked at. Eventually Tag Force 6 (and the other Tag Force titles) will get its own card template, at which point all of these will be split out, but there's no telling when we'll actually get to these games, given we're working more-or-less chronologically currently (and are stalled out around DM7 right now).
That's a known issue; the navigation template never got quite hooked up properly in {{CardTable2}} for these cases. I've looked at it before, but it involves touching some hairy code, so I haven't actually gotten it done.
ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 19:44, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Formatting[edit]

I have begun to take a look at the character profiles in the Tag Force series. They can probably be added to each page at some point in time, but I am more concerned about how to format it. Modata (talkcontribs) 21:16, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

Discord[edit]

It occurred to me that I haven't asked this before, in spite of the discussions we've had here; would you be interested in joining the wiki's Discord server? We have a channel dedicated to our efforts to properly document video games, and you're more than welcome to contribute to any discussions there. =) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 23:33, 29 December 2019 (UTC)

I have gotten drastically busier during the last few months, so I do not really have the time to add much or double-check anything. But I suppose I have no reason to say "no"? Modata (talkcontribs) 15:39, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
As with anything here, there is no demand for any particular activity level; contribute as you have the time and interest to do so. Being in the server is convenient for coordinating work and for rapid communication, though I figure you're already quite aware of those points. =) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 16:30, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

Tag Force birthdays and voice actors[edit]

Do you know if Tag Force characters' dates of birth are ever mentioned? And are you able to easily find the voice actor for a given character?

Basically, would you be able to help verify if this edit is correct? -- Deltaneos (talk) 19:19, 20 March 2020 (UTC)

It's okay. Seems to have just been a hoax. -- Deltaneos (talk) 19:54, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
The game does not credit specific voice actors for voicing specific game original characters anywhere. The character profiles do not mention voice actors or birthdates, either.
However, I have not checked out the conversations every single character has with the player during their respective events, so some of them could be mentioning their birthdays. But I highly doubt it. It is the second time someone gives that specific character a birthdate, too, and they were different dates each time, so I am fairly sure both are fake. Modata (talkcontribs) 23:29, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
Having now played multiple stories in Tag Force 4, Tag Force 5 and Tag Force 6, I have not seen any birth date or any age mentioned anywhere. I have also not seen them coming up in any conversation, be it in one of the minigames or otherwise. Modata (talkcontribs) 18:57, 13 October 2021 (UTC)

Plans[edit]

I might go over the character profiles I transcribed and add the ruby characters I skipped over. I thought it would look bad in that small space, but I tried it out and it seems to be just fine. It will just take me yet another eternity to get it done.

After that, I might go over Tag Force 1, 2 and Special, and transcribe those games' profiles. The first two games would be more of a personal curiosity matter concerning their localization, so they might not really need the full treatment... The third game has no profiles in any version.

I heavily doubt I can get any further information on World Duel Carnival. I have no way to play it at an acceptable speed regardless of the language and I cannot find finished savefiles of the original japanese version to get the character profiles, and removed characters' storylines, from. I am also unable to get proper pretty transparent .png format pictures to replace the placerholder-y ones I uploaded back in the day to replace the early magazine scans. Modata (talkcontribs) 01:05, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Went over the games. The localization is much more accurate than I expected it to be, both in character dialogue and in profile content. It actually feels pretty redundant to write the profiles in both English and Japanese. Modata (talkcontribs) 21:47, 17 May 2020 (UTC)


Page renaming[edit]

The "Ryo (Tag Force)" page should probably be renamed "Kozo Nishino".

There are other pages for game original Tag Force characters that could be renamed to their Japanese names (Rei, Rio, Marcel, Ray, Dante, Rock, Simon, Hide, Andrea, Ida, Hana, Sara, Olivia, Emma, Alice) but the Ryo/Kozo Nishino page is the only one that is already misnamed in English. There is no "Ryo" in the game series. Modata (talkcontribs) 15:05, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

Regarding Ryo, are you unable to access the English version of Tag Force 5 to confirm his English name? Or is he simply non-existent in the English version? --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 04:54, 18 August 2020 (UTC)
He is not called Ryo. Tag Force 4 had a character called Masaya Nakamura, who only exists in that game. Kozo Nishino replaces him in Tag Force 5 and 6, using similar Decks and taking his space in the character list. The localizations called both of them Rio for some reason. Modata (talkcontribs) 11:01, 18 August 2020 (UTC)
https://i.imgur.com/JE6EHxr.png It took me entirely too long to get screenshots with an acceptable font size and display. Modata (talkcontribs) 19:02, 13 October 2021 (UTC)
The page of the Booster Pack A Bug's Deal in Tag Force 2 is misnamed. It should be A Bug's Duel. https://i.imgur.com/WxrF8Fz.png Modata (talkcontribs) 01:14, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Duel Transer[edit]

It seems the Transcenders in Duel Transer use around 200 different Decks.

There seem to be some vague data about them out there, so I will be trying to add what I can.

The catch is that I am all too aware it is bound to have mistakes here and there - a few Decklists I have already transcribed do not have the minimum 40 cards, for one - and I cannot look at the game directly to correct anything myself. So I am not exactly pleased about that.

The sheer amount of Decklists to add means I will be doing it regardless, if only to begin doing some progress on it in some aspect. But if anyone can correct anything, by all means, please go ahead. Modata (talkcontribs) 03:20, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

I spoke a little bit too soon. I do now have the chance to play the game normally, so I will eventually be able to get anything that could be desired from it. Modata (talkcontribs) 04:12, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

Is there any reason you're removing the number of card types from pre-existing Decklists? For example, Trudge's Deck. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 18:43, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

...they look very off sometimes. But I will stop. Modata (talkcontribs) 19:31, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Voice actors for characters in the videogames are usually all lumped together without crediting them to their respective characters, which is why I have not listed the voice actors in the Tag Force games, but Duel Transer listed each character and their voice actor separately.

The voice actors for Surtr and Odin in the Japanese release of Duel Transer are listed as Hiroki Yasumoto (安元 洋貴, Yasumoto Hiroki) and Yuriko Yamamoto (山本 百合子, Yamamoto Yuriko), respectively, in the game's ending credits. Modata (talkcontribs) 00:34, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Voice actors added to the respective characters' pages. Rex Goodwin, Tank, Nervin, Tenzen Yanagi, Blister/Saiga, the MC, Rathie/Kurumizawa, Bruno, Lawton/Rotten, Elsworth/Mizoguchi, Andre, Breo and Jean do not have 3D models, so they have no voice clips even with duel animations on. Sherry, the Yliaster trio and all Transcenders plus Geri and Freki do have 3D models but they are also not voiced. Modata (talkcontribs) 14:41, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Duel Carnival[edit]

Being unable to find much concrete information about this game anywhere, I have begun a savefile of my own in the original release of the game.

Before I get too deep into it, I would like to know if any pictures of any of the storyline endings are available at proper image quality. A considerable inconvenience is that I can only play the game at 40% speed, so I want to minimize the amount of time I spend doing storylines that would not unlock anything for now.

I am likely to finish every single storyline eventually, but I do not know when I will be done. Modata (talkcontribs) 01:24, 30 October 2020 (UTC)

I take it that the natural screenshot resolution for the Nintendo 3DS is 400 x 240? Modata (talkcontribs) 02:24, 6 November 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, but generally you leave messages on other people's Talk Pages (not your own) for people to notice your messages. This is especially the case when you're initiating a conversation. Just so you know.
I don't believe anyone has taken native screenshots of the game yet, only real-life "pictures" of their 3DS playing the game at certain scenes. I'm not sure about the native resolution of the 3DS. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 02:47, 6 November 2020 (UTC)

Apparently the native resolution of the top screen is 400×240 pixels (for each eye, in order to produce the 3D effect - technically 800x240 as a result, but that's not what we want). Bottom screen is 320x240 pixels. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 04:00, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
Thinking about things a bit, I am really not sure why I did not leave these messages in the game's own main page instead. The idea of writing on someone else's Talk Page for this topic eluded me completely... I apologize. Modata (talkcontribs) 19:51, 7 November 2020 (UTC)

Hello. I have noticed that the ending images for the JP only WDC game story mode characters were put up by you. If that's the case, I would like to ask you about them. As soon as possible would be preferable. Thank you. YGOTourneyFan (talkcontribs) 16:48, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

I would not mind, but it would perhaps be a little bit more organized if you created an account. There are many stories, after all. Modata (talkcontribs) 15:48, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
If we could, I'd like to go over this on my talk page. That's what you want to do, right? YGOTourneyFan (talkcontribs) 17:20, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
Number 96 breaks out of Astral at the beginning of the story and poses as him for most of it, trying to turn people into his servants. The story ends with Astral sealing him away again, but Astral remains uneasy. It is implied Number 96 could break free and impersonate Astral again at any time.
Vector gathers power by stealing the souls of his fellow Barians, and successfully defeats ZeXal and absorbs Astral.
Sanagi's story is about her wanting to form an idol band, and strongarms anyone she defeats in her events into joining.
Umimi participates in the tournament as her last big duel-related activity before she takes a break. The final duel is against Doctor Faker, who wants her to marry him instead of Tobio so that Kaito and Haruto can have a mother.
Kakeru behaves like he does in his episode. He learns his lesson after he wins in his first story event and promises his brothers that he will go back to playing soccer after the tournament ends.
Charlie participates to pay for the operation needed by his niece Mayumi, but his mannerisms get him in trouble with lots of people from town.
Durbe asks everyone he runs into in his events if they are Nasch, and is disappointed when he wins the duels and realizes they can't be Nasch for one reason or another. It is a comical story up until the very end, as his final opponent is Shark.
Akari has computer issues at the beginning of her story, which leads her to duel and see if she can find other material for her job.
Rei duels to please Yuma. Everything promptly proceeds to go wrong.
Tokunosuke entered the World Duel Carnival to reveal the reason for it being held, but refuses to wish for it after he wins the tournament. He had seen Kaito talking with Mr. Heartland in the Heart Tower earlier, which meant his final opponent and one of the most important figures of the city were involved in something together, so Tokunosuke decides to not learn anything else because it would be very dangerous for him.
Cathy wants to confess her feelings for Yuma. She gets friend-zoned.
Yamikawa wants to see for himself the results of his training since he returned to the Duel Lodge, and his demeanor makes him fairly popular among the participants. His wish is monetary assistance for the Lodge.
Takashi wants to meet his idol IV, and ultimately runs into him at the finals. IV manages to stop himself from going on a tirade after he loses, so Takashi has the best day he could have hoped for.
Tetsuo is smitten by Rio, and most of his events are about his crush on her.
Rio participates in the tournament because she is eager to duel, and runs into the people who were responsible for her stay in the hospital.
Shobee runs into and befriends other hot-blooded people.
Hosaku wants to build Tomato Paradise and meets several ladies besides Kotori who could be the perfect image girl he is looking for.
Aika enters the WDC to see for herself if the people at Heartland can appreciate the beauty of flowers.
Haruto ran away from the Heart Tower, and only returns for the final rounds.
Orbital runs into Obomi and falls in love with her at first sight. He duels to "free" Obomi from Tonma.
Anna's is exactly what anyone would expect.
Shuta is undervaluing himself because his pictures were rejected by Akari's editor-in-chief.
Mizael flaunts his way to the city, learns of Kaito's Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon, and decides he wants to clash with them.
Fuya asks his mother to let him participate in the tournament, and she happily allows him to.
Girag tries to do anything he can to gather Numbers. Nothing goes the way he wants.
V spends his story reminiscing sadly about the times during which he had a normal loving family and was on good terms with Kaito.
Gauche wants to clash with Yuma again. After the WDC, he teaches children how to duel and is good terms with Yuma and Fuya.
Droite's story has her partner with Orbital to do Kaito's Number hunting. She tries to behave like Kaito does, copying his mannerisms and catchphrase, and takes the Numbers and souls of any Number holder she defeats in her events. Like Kaito, she believes assisting the one she loves is worth it. Unlike Kaito, she feels sorry for the people who lose their souls.
Dog-chan wishes to provide food for all dogs in Heartland.
Those would be rough resumes of the storylines. Modata (talkcontribs) 18:20, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. I appreciate you sharing all this, but it's not exactly what I'm looking for. Feel free to take this to my discussion page to avoid bloating this section. YGOTourneyFan (talkcontribs) 18:27, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
If necessary, feel free to send me an email. I'd gladly explain in more detail. YGOTourneyFan (talkcontribs) 19:14, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
Hey, you still up to talk about this? About last time, I was more asking about each of those characters' opponents during their respective story mode's heart events. For example, in Yuma's story mode, he fought, in order: Tetsuo, Haruto, and Yamikawa. Then in the WDC Finals Yuma fought: III, Shark, and Kaito. That is exactly what I'm looking for with the JP only characters. Do you think you could help with that? YGOTourneyFan (talkcontribs) 01:41, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
Oh, that. Sure. I'll try to write it down sometime later today. Modata (talkcontribs) 14:26, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
Great! Really appreciate it. Also, try to do that on my Discussion page. Just so we don't end up making this thread too long.
About the WDC Finals part, I would like it if you could give me the exact details about the participants found in each character's story mode. For example, with Yuma, it goes: Yuma vs III, Shark vs IV, Kite vs Gauche, V vs Droite. Could you do that, too? It's okay if it takes you a few days to get everything. I can wait. Just knowing you'll help is enough. Thanks again! YGOTourneyFan (talkcontribs) 16:19, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
https://pastebin.com/Wt91frYv Here are the opponents for each character whose storyline was not localized.
https://www.nicovideo.jp/user/14037990/mylist/42894209 I found this playlist over there in Niconico with all storylines for the original release of the game, if it is of any use for you. Some of them are split in two videos.
Something that would be noticed by comparing both the paste and the videos is that the final opponents for the stories of Number 96 and Charlie do not match their Finals brackets. They are last-minute changes during the events themselves, and not an error on the game's part. Modata (talkcontribs) 18:52, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
Sweet! Thanks a million! I'll be checking them out right away. YGOTourneyFan (talkcontribs) 21:13, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

Victory bonuses[edit]

Do you know if there is a more official name or even a more appropriate name for Victory bonus (Tag Force 1)?

And do you know if Blair and Ray really both give "Muka Muka". It's the only card on the list that can be given by more than one character. This GameFAQs guide and this @wiki guide agree that both give "Muka Muka". -- Deltaneos (talk) 13:52, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Ray's card is indeed "Muka Muka".
I have not noticed any bonus like the one you mention, but I do know there is a "Clear Bonus" (クリアボーナス). It is worth a set amount of DP for each storyline the player has finished. The GX games had it at 2 DP per story, but it was reduced to 1 DP per story for the 5Ds games. Modata (talkcontribs) 19:36, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Duel Terminal character profiles[edit]

I have been translating the character profiles in the Duel Terminal page. Several of the characters do not have their own pages, and while I would not have minded creating them, I do not have any information about them that would actually justify creating a new page. No appearances, Decks, or anything. So those profiles will be posted below this message.

I would have instead posted them in the Discussion tab for the Duel Terminal page, as I have been suggested to do before, but the discussion page for Duel Terminals is not in very good shape. Modata (talkcontribs) 23:48, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

A duelist who uses the Ojama Trio, and a rival of Judai!

Has an elitist mindset, and is rather pushy and bossy.

However, there is also a nicer side to him, cherishing and using the cards that were cast away by others.

Seto's quote is... something I have never understood. I know it's one of those quotes of his that is rather iconic, but I do not remember its exact context. Looking for it elsewhere did not really yield results. And I do not remember how it was handled in the various translations of the source material to at least keep consistency, either.

Chazz's / Manjoume's is the 1/10/100/1000/10000 quote. The problem at hand is, instead, that the localization changed it with something else, and I think people want the profile translations to be more in line with the localized terms and dub names? A bit of a blind assumption on my part.

Does Carly Carmen / Carly Nanosa have a character profile entry in the Duel Terminals? I did not see it in the files while looking for the others.Modata (talkcontribs) 00:27, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

Replacing JPG files[edit]

Hello there!
First of all, thank you very much for all your work! I'd just like to ask you to, when replacing JPG files for PNG files, to make sure you tag the old JPG files for deletion, if nothing more links to them. Sometimes, they are still used on card galleries (or some place else); if that's the case, it would be great if you could cleanup those links and then tag the JPG one (now not being used anywhere else) for deletion, please.
Thank you! Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 22:20, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Noted. But, I do not think I know how to actually tag files for deletion. Modata (talkcontribs) 22:28, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
You just need to edit the file and add {{Delete}} to the top of the content. If the JPG file name differs from the PNG one, I recommend adding {{Delete|reason=Replaced by PNG file [[:File:<filename>]]}}, where <filename> is the JPG filename.
This is so we can more easily identify which files are not needed anymore.
Thanks! Let me know if you have more questions! Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 23:25, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
Note that linking to "wiki/<pagename>" results in redlinks; the software assumes that you're trying to link to a page literally named wiki/<pagename>. To link to files without causing them to embed, add a colon (:) before the filename, e.g. [[:File:Example.jpg]]File:Example.jpg. ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 02:00, 17 April 2021 (UTC)
Aah, disregard this, I think it was caused by a JS script that's started acting wonky. ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 20:39, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Character infoboxes[edit]

If it's not too much trouble, could you start keeping an eye out for uses of {{Infobox/Yu-Gi-Oh!/Character}}, and replacing them with {{Infobox character}}? The former template is slated for eventual deletion, but there are still some hundreds of pages using it, and no one is currently working on replacement. Thanks! ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 00:39, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Aah, there's also all of these things (excepting the voice actors one). ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 00:48, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
Went through some of them. I think most of the pages left to do are User Talk? Modata (talkcontribs) 21:43, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, I've been seeing your edits; thanks for the work!
There's definitely a lot of user pages in the remaining transclusions; I'm not really worried about those, but you can convert them too if you really want to. ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 03:56, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

Romaji capitalisation[edit]

When adding romaji for things that are normally written in title case, such as set and Deck names, can you use title case for the romaji? e.g. for Gift of Wind, use Kaze no Okurimono rather than Kaze no okurimono. -- Deltaneos (talk) 10:20, 29 August 2021 (UTC)

Mover[edit]

Hey Modata, I've given you the mover usergroup, which allows you to rename pages (and files/categories). I don't know why I hadn't given it to you long ago, though better late than never, I suppose. If you have any questions or need any help with renaming, please ask! =) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 02:09, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Oh. Neat. Thank you. How are these functions used? Modata (talkcontribs) 15:19, 7 December 2021 (UTC)
Aah, sorry I didn't respond sooner; I missed your response here until now.
If you don't mind me pointing you elsewhere, the help pages on Wikipedia and MediaWiki.org probably cover the basics better than I could here (and neither one looks to be very long or overly technical, based on a quick skim of them); if you still have questions after looking them over, please ask and I'd be happy to answer them! (If you want to be sure I won't miss any questions, you can ping me when you ask, by including a link to my userpage, e.g. @[[User:Dinoguy1000|Dinoguy1000]]; this will cause the software to notify me with an icon in the top bar next to my user name - more information on this feature is also available on Wikipedia and MediaWiki.org.) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 06:43, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

TF06 pack gallery[edit]

Hey Modata, would you be able to match the uploaded images in the latter part of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Tag Force 6 Booster Pack gallery with the linked set names in the first part of it? If you feel confident enough with the tools, you can go ahead and rename the images yourself if you'd like, or you can just clearly mark what goes with what and I can move them all later. Unfortunately, I don't have any way of checking these myself. Thanks! =) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 06:35, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

I will do it in a few days. I would want to have all the Japanese names for the Booster Packs in both Tag Force 5 and Tag Force 6 before renaming anything. Modata (talkcontribs) 17:39, 8 December 2021 (UTC)
That's fine, there's no rush here. =) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 18:10, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

VG-BP and the like[edit]

If you happen to be renaming a page with a tag like VG-BP in its name (e.g. GX04-BP), you can go ahead and replace the tag with the game's name (unless you know there's nothing else, in any other games or otherwise, that have the same name as that set, in which case you can just leave off the bit in parentheses entirely). For example, GX04-BP would be replaced with Tag Force 2. If you're not sure what exact name to use for a given game, just ask and I'll let you know. =)
Long-term, these will all be getting renamed in this way, and we have done it already for a few games, but in general it's kinda annoying to do; if you decide you'd like to do it, that'd be fine with us. =D ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 18:16, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

Could you only use the extra bracketed text if the name is used by more than one thing? e.g. Crush on You is the name of a set in multiple games, so it's necessary to call them Crush on You (Tag Force 2) and Crush on You (Tag Force 3). Whereas, Natural Born Critters, as far as I can tell, is only used by one thing, so doesn't need the " (Tag Force 4)" at the end of the page name. -- Deltaneos (talk) 23:25, 8 December 2021 (UTC)
I will keep this in mind. I had seen several of the Booster Pack names in Tag Force 6 and expected many of them to have been reused from Tag Force 5, and several names from Tag Force 5 being reused from Tag Force 4, but a closer look made me realize my assumption was wrong. Many of the names are similar, but not the same. So I will be addressing those faulty page moves of mine soon. Modata (talkcontribs) 03:43, 9 December 2021 (UTC)
Sorry to keep bothering you about this stuff, but generally it's best to leave redirects when you rename pages. We only routinely suppress or delete redirects when renaming stuff that's not a main article (e.g. card galleries/artworks/tips/trivia/etc., or files, or talk pages); otherwise, redirects normally shouldn't be deleted/suppressed without some extra consideration. If you're ever unsure, it's better to leave the redirect, and optionally tag it for deletion to prompt some review and/or discussion. ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 03:20, 10 December 2021 (UTC)
I was actually unsure about this specific point, but I was not sure how to word the question. Modata (talkcontribs) 20:29, 10 December 2021 (UTC)

High Noon Constellation TF5 code[edit]

I noticed that the code listed for High Noon Constellation (Tag Force 5) is only one missing away from the Konami Code as used in Duel Transer; is it actually missing in the TF5 code, or was it misplaced when writing the set's page? ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 19:27, 12 December 2021 (UTC)

Testing the Tag Force 5 code input for a while, I could not unlock the pack again by inputting only once, while inputting twice does work every time. I must have scrolled through the screen a bunch of times without paying much attention the first time I was testing inputs. Modata (talkcontribs) 02:36, 17 December 2021 (UTC)
Aah, that does make more sense (though it would've been much more interesting if the programmers had actually made that mistake ;) )... ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 10:16, 17 December 2021 (UTC)

Tag Force card pages[edit]

I've been wondering for a while, do you have any interest in creating card pages for the cards in the Tag Force games? As you've noticed, we've already done some (including, IIRC, all TF1/TF Evolution cards), but there's still plenty that need split from their OCG/TCG card pages. ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 21:08, 19 December 2021 (UTC)

I am afraid I do not have any interest in that. I do not see the point of making an individual page for every single card in every single game they appear. Cards that only exist in videogames could use those, but most of those do not need one page per game, either. Modata (talkcontribs) 00:51, 21 December 2021 (UTC)
We have good reasons for wanting to do this (though note that I use "wanting" here lightly; I've never really liked this approach, but unfortunately there are no other approaches we've ever looked at that would work better), but I'm guessing you've already seen some coverage of those reasons so I won't insult you by repeating them here (though if I'm mistaken, I'd be happy to give a run-down =) ). That said, even if you didn't disagree with the approach conceptually, I was half-expecting you to decline anyways - it's a lot of work to create all those pages, even if you figure out a way to automate some of it.
At any rate, declining this doesn't by any means diminish your other contributions to date, and I hope you'll choose to continue contributing here regardless. =) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 01:30, 21 December 2021 (UTC)
If I have more to contribute at some point, I will be adding it as I get it ready. Modata (talkcontribs) 18:55, 21 December 2021 (UTC)
I have been doing some of the pages for the game original cards, but I am not sure how to make the pages for the game original versions of the Meklord Emperors in Tag Force 6 and the Dark Synchros from Tag Force 5 onwards. Both the OCG/TCG versions and game original versions of the cards are included, but I do not think the templates actually differentiate between them. Modata (talkcontribs) 14:27, 29 January 2022 (UTC)
My gut feeling is that the different versions would get separate pages, but I don't know much about the games in general, or anything about these cards in particular other than what you've said here. I'm guessing the different versions are differentiated in-game? If so, are they treated as separate cards, or is it more along the lines of different artworks of the same card? ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 22:09, 29 January 2022 (UTC)
Template:Tag Force 5 card, Template:Tag Force 6 card and Template:Tag Force Special card have been updated to support the cards that exist with both their OCG effect and their game-original effects e.g. "Underground Arachnid (Tag Force 5)" and "Underground Arachnid (Tag Force 5 Game Original)". -- Deltaneos (talk) 23:50, 29 January 2022 (UTC)
Can the card templates handle more than one alternate card artwork? Several cards have more than one alternate art. Modata (talkcontribs) 00:51, 15 April 2022 (UTC)
Based on looking briefly through {{Tag Force 6 card}}'s code, it looks like for the most part the templates don't care how many artworks you add, though there may be parts that need adjusted. For now, you can assume that the support is there, and if things need fixed up for them to actually work correctly, the adjustments can be made once the wiki speeds back up (probably tomorrow some time). ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 01:43, 15 April 2022 (UTC)
The template used for cards in Tag Force 3 does not seem to recognize Tuner monsters and Synchro monsters. Modata (talkcontribs) 12:35, 22 April 2022 (UTC)

Yu-Gi-Oh Tag Force 2/3/4/5 bonus list[edit]

Hey Modata, I was hoping you could help with adding the bonus lists to Tag Force 2/3/4/5 as there are bonus lists on the first Tag Force but aren't any on Tag force 2/3/4/5. if you somehow know what they are, would you mind posting them on their article pages. So everyone can see what they are missing, (I'm a part of that as I don't know which ones I'm missing) thanks buddy! Ezee10 (talkcontribs) 09:44, 12 April 2022 (UTC)

I have written down the lists of Bonuses for those 4 games. Some of the bonuses are pretty strange, and most of them change in some way over the course of the series, so I wrote down some technical details on them as well. Please let me know if anything is wrong. Modata (talkcontribs) 02:38, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

Thats great, thankyou very much buddy! one last thing, is Tag Force Evolution the same list as Tag Force 1? good job!!!! Ezee10 (talkcontribs) 08:26, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

The Forbidden/Limited Lists were the same, as far as I remember. Modata (talkcontribs) 10:39, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

Sorry, I meant the bonus/challenge lists of tag force 1 and tag force evolution, do you know the bonus list of tag force evolution? Ezee10 (talkcontribs) 09:49, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

The bonuses for Tag Force 1 and Tag Force Evolution should be the same as they are in Tag Force 2 and Tag Force 3. The Duelist bonus, based on the opponent's Deck, is (25 x Deck Level), rather than (90 x Deck Level), but everything else should be the same. Modata (talkcontribs) 13:02, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

Uploading images[edit]

If you'd like to spend less time uploading images to the wiki, JustGian has a bot that can bulk-upload; you'd just have to zip the collection and upload it to a file sharing site, then post the link here. (Though this is assuming you're not uploading the images as you take them, of course.) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 01:46, 21 May 2022 (UTC)

I think I tried to use it a couple of times, but it did not accept my files even after I manually renamed them. Besides, what takes me the most time is cropping the screenshots. I do not mind uploading them manually. Modata (talkcontribs) 05:17, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you mean; are you referring to Special:MultiUpload? Unfortunately, the extension that enables that special page is nonfunctional and unmaintained, so I'm not sure if the special page has ever actually worked for us since we forked. Gian's bot, on the other hand, just automates the upload process through the normal Special:Upload. In addition, he can handle renaming images as required (he normally does so when we get a new batch of video game card images to be uploaded from other sources).
All that said, if you don't mind the process, it is of course fine. The suggestion was just if you happened to find the process tedious. =) ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 06:31, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
