PNG VG images from JPG[edit]

Hey Brick. When you download a video game JPG image, convert it to PNG and upload it, replacing the JPG ones, could you add it to this place, please? Example. Thanks.
One other thing: May I suggest adding a link to your talk page archive? Just for easier navigation. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 21:15, February 24, 2017 (UTC)


You've been told this before, but there's no decent reason in removing the links from foreign card lores, even if you can't understand the languages. Just compare the texts side-by-side, by putting a line break beneath the original text and placing the database text underneath, then using Preview. If the lores differ, then sure, feel free to replace the entire text without all the links. But if they're the same, then you're doing nothing more than removing the links, which is bad. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 17:07, March 31, 2017 (UTC)

Speed World 2 WC10 lore[edit]

Hey, can you explain why you removed the WC10 lore from Speed World 2? If it's because it's identical to the WC11 lore, we actually want both lores, since that shows that both games have been checked. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 15:05, April 16, 2017 (UTC)

I feel that multiple VG lores should only be present on a card page if they contain any differences, so that anyone reading the page knows from a look that the lores are different. In this case, listing both the WC10 and WC11 lore felt misleading, so I kept the card's most recent incarnation and removed the older.
Though, thinking of it now, perhaps I should have kept the older and removed the most recent, to show that the lore never changed between games.
In any case, these are my reasons, but I won't protest if you wish to replace the removed lore.

I do actually agree with you, but in the case of cards using {{CardTable2}}, they need the parameters to show the card appeared in the video game in question. Though that requirement could potentially be relaxed for the World Championship games, if it turns out that they fully share their card lists (i.e. cards were only added from one game to the next, and never removed); for example, this is the case for the first four Duel Monsters games. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 16:44, April 16, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Set lists[edit]

Hey there, Brick. You can create them, but not with {{Set list}}. You'd have to create them the other way, with the boilerplate. {{Set list}} is still too heavy and I doubt I'll be able to make it cheaper for now. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 15:32, May 8, 2017 (UTC)

You don't need to revert back to the boilerplate, since the other are fine. Unless you plan on, then, reverting all pages using {{Set list}} to the boilerplate. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 18:50, May 8, 2017 (UTC)


Hi Brick, I was just looking at your image uploads. Are you aware that you can add the licensing during the initial upload, rather than then having to go and edit the page after the image has been uploaded? Just type it into the "Summary" box on the upload page. --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 19:41, May 9, 2017 (UTC)

Sorry that I didn't catch on sooner that you hadn't realized. You're welcome. :) --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 19:52, May 9, 2017 (UTC)

Chinese lores[edit]

Please stop what you're doing, because those Chinese names/lores may be accepted as valid, as extensions of being supported by video games. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 16:39, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
