Front Page

Hey Yami Michael, do you mind if I have a go at beautifying and optimizing the main page? Let me know!  PORTERFIELD  20:30, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

  • Take a shot. You sure surprised me though, when this wiki is so small right now. :) Yami Michael 20:34, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

Character page limit

I'm not keen on the idea of using (Character) for Creatures that are not the Duelist's primary partner since that could quickly bog down the site and some Creatures don't even have a regular card page yet let alone a Character page. Chimera-gui (talk) 00:21, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

  • Yeah, I really need to get something set up for it. As it also makes the character template too long.
I would imagine soon enough, that the creature will have a card though, so was using the (Character) rather then fixing up a lot of pages later. I didnt even really want pages for creatures that werent "main" and "important", but if/when episode pages are ever done, then the character pages make sense as they would at least say each episode they were in, how they featured, etc. Yami Michael 04:45, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
  • Alright, I will go with this but I think that you should have someone set up the character pages so ease your workload. Chimera-gui (talk) 00:21, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

Artifacts

Each of the creature kings has a artifact that belonged to them prior to being sealed that embodies their civilization. for the fire king it is the sword of fiery cataclysm and for the water king it is the helm of ultimate technology, the others haven't been revealed yet. The Choten wants to collect these artifacts, so they are important to the show's plot. how should we go about posting the information on the site. should the have their own page or should this information be displayed on the creature king page?DalekSupreme13 (talk) 08:07, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

Unless they turn into a big plot device, it seems like they are best to just stay on that creatures page for now. I haven't seen the episodes, but they don't seem important enough yet. Yami Michael 09:11, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
Saguru stealing the sword for the choten is the secondary plot of into the fire parts 1 & 2. in the deep end parts 1& 2 the choten is trying to steal the helm and frame the protagonists for the theft. in the deep end part 1 he reveals to gabe and ray that acquiring the artifacts is a major part of his plan to take over the human and creature worlds.DalekSupreme13 (talk) 09:28, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
While the artifacts are plot relevant, there is just not enough information to warrant their own page and we've got enough incomplete pages as is. Chimera-gui (talk) 13:16, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

Thought

Since David Colman has a DA page, perhaps you could request bio images for characters whose bios aren't on the official site such as Moorna. Chimera-gui (talk) 15:18, August 20, 2012 (UTC)

I've actually asked @wizards_kaijudo directly, and awaiting more of a response after a brief chat. Yami Michael 07:07, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
So do you want to try asking them again? Chimera-gui (talk) 20:42, September 25, 2012 (UTC)

Pictures

where do you get the images of characters of the show and/or how do you get them? the are the same ones from the kaijudo website, but i can't figure out how you got them.DalekSupreme13 (talk) 11:58, August 21, 2012 (UTC)

Right click the image, and "Save Image As". Yami Michael 12:02, August 21, 2012 (UTC)
when i right click it that option isn't available is there another way or website i can get them from? just to be sure, you get your images from the library area of the dojo section of the website correct because thats were i'm looking.DalekSupreme13 (talk) 15:13, August 21, 2012 (UTC)
I was getting them from the character pages like http://www.kaijudo.com/tv/bio/characters/ray.html. The Library page isn't any good to get decent pictures for, print screening them just turns terrible, sadly. Yami Michael 11:47, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

ray422

Yami micheal I had no idea you couldn't copyright a picture. I 'll be careful and this wont happen again. im sorry. You have my word. Ray422 (talk)

Its not that they cant be copyrighted, its just that those images all belong to Wizards and are part of their intellectual property. The wikia is allowed to use images like that because of wikia licensing and fair use policies, but claiming them as your own is not a good idea. Yami Michael 11:10, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

Powerful attack

What would happen when a creature with powerful attack gain more powerful attack by through Kaiena the ignaiter will the powerful attack be added to their original powerful attack get or become powerful attack +1000?

Yup. Anything that increases power stacks. So you could have 3 Essence Elf creatures out, so all your creatures have (3x1000) 3000 power and also summon 3 Kenina the Igniter on the same turn to give a creature 3 different "powerful attack" abilities, so they get (3x2000) 6000 more power when they attack.

You could make something as big as Earthstomp Giant (11000) go all the way to 20000 if you really thought you had to. Cards like Magma Madness can make them even bigger. That clear up everything?

Power always stacks, but Double Breaker doesnt. No creature can break more than 2 shields at once. Yami Michael 11:07, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks!Kaijudofreak1001 (talk) 11:51, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

Redirects

We should probably delete the redirects and make sure that card links go directly to the correct pages. Chimera-gui (talk) 02:26, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

Of course, and already dealt with a few. Yami Michael 06:50, September 7, 2012 (UTC)
Redirects do more than make it easier to follow links. They also make searching the wiki easier. BlitzerRyuusei (talk) 22:33, September 7, 2012 (UTC)
^While true, hes meaning a few pages like Krenkos/Kronkos and Orbital Seer/Observer that were wrong, and didnt have their names fixed in the galleries/content lists. Yami Michael 23:58, September 7, 2012 (UTC)
zbut actually looking at the lists of redirects, I saw that some like Bob/Allie and so on were deleted and cleaned. Even if not linked to directly, I know many would search for the page by using those names, so they actually serve purpose. I'll have to deal with it later today, but dont touch any other redirects. It was cards I was agreeing with, no general redirects. Yami Michael 00:02, September 8, 2012 (UTC)

template

How do you add that duel masters template?

You type {{{Duel Masters Version}}. Then you type * BLAHBLAHBLAH under it. Then under anything you type, you put {{Navigation}}. Yami Michael 09:51, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks!Kaijudofreak1001 (talk) 10:06, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

you have wrote in the duel masters template that any links given below may take you to the duel masters wikia but in the blastforge slaver trivia, you have you added the link of blaze belcher, so should i remove the link or not?

Kaijudofreak1001 (talk) 04:50, September 8, 2012 (UTC)

Its there to tell them that cards in it may take you to the other wiki, so they should know if they changed site or not. The "may" tells them not every link will take them off this site though. Yami Michael 07:50, September 8, 2012 (UTC)

Gallery

I have seen pictures of creatures without any card frame or abilities, such as wallpaperws or others should we add them to the gallery of the creatures of not?

Not sure the pictures that you mean. If you meant on the card galleries, then no. Yami Michael 12:51, September 10, 2012 (UTC)
You can check my user pic for an example for quill spike tatsurian.Kaijudofreak1001 (talk) 14:27, September 10, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, the backgrounds and avatars? No thanks. Yami Michael 15:45, September 10, 2012 (UTC)
okey. Kaijudofreak1001 (talk) 10:06, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

Character Names

Thre was no creature name I got wrong. Maybe it was someone else ok I dont give a fake name to a creature I follow the kaijudo.comdojo information ok!! ?? You are being unfair to me. From User:Ray422

Every character image you have uploaded has had the wrong name. Every. Single. One. Yami Michael 00:27, September 14, 2012 (UTC)

Help

If I may ask for your assistance in this matter:

I'm trying to set the Card Template itself so that if an Ability Template is included, the Ability's Category is added as well for the Dual Masters Card Template so that we no longer have to include Categories in the Ability Templates. Chimera-gui (talk) 20:41, September 25, 2012 (UTC)

Multicolored

I think that we should remove the multicolored page or rename it as double race creatures or something since there are no multicolored cards here, just creatures with different civilizations. Kaijudofreak1001 (talk) 15:37, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

The fact that there are creatures that belong to two different civilizations means that Multicolored are likely planned for the future. Chimera-gui (talk) 15:43, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
There may be no cards that have 2 civilizations yet, but we have 3 (or 4?) creatures that are from 2 civilizations. (Tatsurion, Homonculon, Bloodsucker, Tagtapp). Yami Michael 15:56, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
Bloodsucker, Tagtapp? Kaijudofreak1001 (talk) 16:48, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
Bloodsucker Plant and Tagtapp, the Retaliator. The former is an entirely new creature while the latter is a returning creature. Chimera-gui (talk) 19:37, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
Bloodsucker isn't entirely new, but the name is. Its actually a somewhat recent card (last few sets/year), as an Alien version of a previously restricted card. The card was Geo Eggplant. This new version is apparently both darkness/nature though. Yami Michael 23:00, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
Oh wow, I did not even know that was thing and now I feel really stupid. I probably didn't notice that because Bloodsucker Plant is a Tree Kin. Chimera-gui (talk) 23:45, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
I wouldn't feel bad about it, the OCG does have a lot of cards, lol. I'm hoping that some version of the card actually has "Eggplant" in its name, or that it's "fixed" to a Wild Veggie. Yami Michael 05:10, October 9, 2012 (UTC)
I think part of it is because they're not including the Aliens as a race making Geo Eggplant's appearance harder to explain. Chimera-gui (talk) 06:34, October 9, 2012 (UTC)
I just hope that the game and the series will continue for a long time.. Kaijudofreak1001 (talk) 10:38, October 9, 2012 (UTC)
Me too. I understand the lack of the Geo naming, but poor Eggplants. Maybe Dandy Eggplant will come back in some form soon enough. (Only not as a card to become restricted) :) Yami Michael 21:43, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

Videos

You want me to add some videos for the wiki. Ray422 (talk) 23:24, November 24, 2012 (UTC)User:Ray422Ray422 (talk) 23:24, November 24, 2012 (UTC)

Episodes are not going on the wiki, and news blogs don't really work either. So most likely, a no. Yami Michael 01:14, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

Help

As you already know, I have changed how Infobox images work. The reason for this was so I could incorporate the Switch Template to characters with multiple forms (e.g: Scaradorable) and characters that have undergone radical transformations during the series (e.g: Om Nom Nom, Hissy, Impalicus, and as of the finale Saguru and Tatsurion).

However, this Template still needs work so I would greatly appreciate your assistance in this matter. Chimera-gui (talk) 05:45, January 4, 2013 (UTC)

I had looked at it a few times, but really just failed at it. Yami Michael 06:18, January 4, 2013 (UTC)
Worked on it for quite a while messing around with every little part, and finally what makes it tick. It's currently set to show the "Second Form" by default, which should be changeable (didn't want to miss with it again, today). Third Form and up may be possible, but I'm not gonna see it yet. Yami Michael 08:39, January 4, 2013 (UTC)
Okay I finally figured out how to make colored Infoboxes. Chimera-gui (talk) 06:50, January 25, 2013 (UTC)
I think there's a better way than adding "|color=" on everything. I'm just working on other things first. Yami Michael 06:53, January 25, 2013 (UTC)
I have searched for ways to add color and could not find anything that actually worked. Chimera-gui (talk) 07:07, January 25, 2013 (UTC)

Hi! Love the wikia! Some ideas.

Hi! Really like the Kaijudo wikia! I just started collecting the game last week and I've had to use this wikia about a billion times since then to look up what cards do on the fly. Because I have been using it so much, there are a few suggestions I have that I thought would improve my experience using the wikia.

1) I think it would be cool if when someone goes to a civilization's page, perhaps there could be an area that shows all the cards so far released for that civilization. I know there are links to the types of creatures, but sometimes when I am looking for a card, I know the civilization and perhaps a part of the name of the card, but not the whole name, and it would be nice to skim through the list and find the card I am looking for. Also, it would benefit players like me, who are starting out, and want to make a mono-civilization deck and don't know what all the cards do. As sets come out, these lists may grow rather large, thus perhaps a way to minimize the list and maximize the list on the page would be useful, so it doesn't eat up too much of the space on the page.

2) A similar idea above, but I'd like to be able to click on the mana value (or level) of a card and it pull up all the cards in the game so far that have the same mana value (level). So, if I was looking for the best card to play on turn 3, I could compare all of them at the same time. I found a location in the wikia that lists cards by their cost, but for some reason the data in the card descriptions aren't linked to it.

3) I think the lists in general could be improved if they contained more details about the cards, more than just the name of the card; like if the cost and type were added. So you could tell instantly that it was a 3 cost spell, it would help with skimming over set lists and all kinds of other lists. Of course, it'd be nice if it went further and gave creatures' attack power and gave spells and creatures effects, but that may be too hard to fit on a page.

4) It'd be cool if there was some way to sort all the cards released so far by their attack power, so you could find the strongest creature in the game. But then again, there are many creatures that have + power during certain times, so it'd be hard to sort them correctly.

5) I think it'd be nice if people could leave comments on each the cards' description pages. Like, for new players' use, they could read people's reviews of the card. I would find that really useful. Players could list combos, and links to other cards to look at. That would be cool.

These are ideas. I am willing to help in any way to work towards them. I really like this wikia, I feel it is a precious tool to the kaijudo online community that will see more and more useful as the game grows.

Thanks for reading,

Mattriddle (talk) 17:38, January 25, 2013 (UTC) Matt (hope I signed that right)

1 and 2 are already done in categories. For example Category:Light and Category:Beast Kin. Each card page has these categories. They exist for all sorts of things, abilities, power, race, so on.

3: A lot of it is done by automatic listing code so it automatically updates every page on the wiki when a new card is appropriate. While more details would indeed by great, it also requires much more detailed code and maintenance by people to watch it. The only wiki that has such a thing is the Ygo wiki, and they have a much bigger user-base there, and has some unique code of their own and ties to Wikia stuff. (Some stuff for them has slowed down other wikis due to the stress from their code). This one cant really be done at the time. Even the other listing code was a new thing from last year.

4: As stated for 1 and 2, this can be done. Category:2000 Power Creatures and so on.

5: I actually disagree with this one. Its a nice thought, but I did have it for a small while, and it just leads to degenerative and not thought-out comments. If you've ever seen the Cardfight Wikia that works in a similar way with cardtables, the comment section on cards (like White Dragon Knight, Pendragon as a random example) is just plain messy. I had tried it on the DM wiki too that I also run, and it just detracts from the quality.

Sorry it took a few days to respond, I've been unwell and away from the wiki the last few days. And sorry that most of my responses were dismissive. Yami Michael 11:31, January 29, 2013 (UTC)

First off, no problem on your responses being dismissive. You know how things work around here, I don't. My ideas were based in no reality, and thus it makes sense that some of my ideas just wouldn't be feasible.

On #1 and #2, I'd like to be able to bring up a card, any card, and where it shows it's details, be able to click on them to see a list of all the other cards with that same detail. There is already a list of creatures with 2000 power, so it'd be great if you could click the "2000" in a card's description and it link to this list. Same for level/cost. Race seems to be working already how I'd like to see the others working.

Pretty much, having all these links in the card's description would allow for a much expansive network of card lists, which would help with making decks and comparing cards. Matt R, full-time student, loves TCGs and Video Games. (talk) 00:12, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Ok, so you would want an actual page for "powers of creatures" and "Levels" just like race is set up instead of just the categories. It was thought of long ago, but not done due to the constant work required, but that stuff is automatically updated now, just requires a setup. Hmm. Its something for me to think about, and I have thought about pages for mentioning various things about the Levels of cards before. Yami Michael 03:14, January 30, 2013 (UTC) ikely it will be king tritonus. 2nd. i had posted an image i took from an episode showing some of the tablets that are in the dojo library talking about the various creatures and there civilization. i know you had replied about this since you had thought there was a page already. unfortunatly i'm not good at making these pages but i don't mind supplying images when i can. if you could please make 1 for the tablets and post the image i post i would appreciate it. Lichlord08 (talk) 18:22, February 6, 2013 (UTC)

Locations

I've been think that now might be a good time to start making pages for various locations such as the Temple, the Choten's Base, Blastforge City, etc. The Location Infobox does need some work though. Chimera-gui (talk) 21:36, March 14, 2013 (UTC)

Multi-Civilization

Should we rename Multicolored to Multi-Civilization? The official site explicitly uses the term "multi-civilization" rather than Multicolored. Chimera-gui (talk) 05:01, April 18, 2013 (UTC)

Hmm. I'm gonna think about it. Yami Michael 05:56, April 18, 2013 (UTC)
I also have this. Yami Michael 06:06, April 18, 2013 (UTC)
I do want to point out this while we wait. But, they could of changed their mind since then. Yami Michael 06:29, April 18, 2013 (UTC)
Well several months have passed since Ryan's article and multicolored could have been just a handy familiar term he was using before an official term was given, I've seen this before.
Anyway, do you want to rename them? Chimera-gui (talk) 16:14, April 19, 2013 (UTC)

Leviathan

Hay! what gives on the editing on the leviathan page? you only want cards only? Firebreather628 (talk) 21:38, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, the race list are for cards only. Chimera-gui (talk) 03:19, May 8, 2013 (UTC)
Yup. Thats how its handled on every other race, and on both wikis. Yami Michael 05:33, May 8, 2013 (UTC)
Although, when a race has no actual cards, characters are listed, but only until a card exists. Yami Michael 05:34, May 8, 2013 (UTC)

Character Templates

Since we have a template for Tatsurion, should we make ones for Glu-urrgle and Scaradorable? Chimera-gui (talk) 04:19, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

I had thought about it. Those 2 characters are important enough. I usually waited until they had a support (something that boosts either "Gargle" or "Squeaky" cards, but I have done various family groups before (like Ballom or Onimaru) so we can. Might limit it so a character needs like 4/5+ cards before they get a template. Yami Michael 04:37, May 9, 2013 (UTC)
4/5+ cards as a prerequisite for a character archetype template sounds fine. Chimera-gui (talk) 05:01, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

Dragonsong

Dragonsong Question

Someone thought that Dragonsong drops the cost of Shadeblaze the Corruptor & Ba'kaar Frostwing by two instead of one since both are hybrids of two dragon races. Can you double check this since I'm pretty certain that's not the case. Chimera-gui (talk) 20:03, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

Its not. I've ruled a few times to people that it does not.
To quote Scott Rivers quoting me... "Dragons are Dragons, even if they're hybrid races. Now, if ever we got a WN Fire Bird that said "You tap 1 less mana card to summon Tsunami Dragons" AND "You tap 1 less mana card to summon Earthstrike Dragons", THEN Frostwing will cost 6 instead of 8."
Or, the Fire Bird would need to say "You tap 1 less mana card to summon creatures for each of their Dragon races". With the current Song birds, they only care if the card is a Dragon. If yes? The card costs 1 less. Multiple birds stack, but its never been per-race. Yami Michael 00:26, July 4, 2013 (UTC)
I figured as much since Dragonsong didn't specify individual dragon races, thank you for the clarification. Chimera-gui (talk) 01:17, July 4, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Spells & Salutations

Hello, new to the Kaijudo wiki, but I have been around various other wiki's before. I would like to first say that this place looks very nice and well put together. That being said, I couldn't help but notice that under your link for Spells, it has only a basic description of the card type and then links the spells used in the animated series. Now I've gone through the trouble of searching hopefully every TCG spell on here and put it up nice and neat in the Spells page, which then got taken down, to which I then reposted them up. Instead of this going back and forth I thought I'd come to you directly.

I am new to Kaijudo myself, I came to this wiki and saw that your Spells page didn't have any of the spells conveniently listed/linked there and so I added them, because to be honest, being a 'newb' and all that to Kaijudo...until someone told me this game had spells, looking at this wiki, I didn't think so. I think the list I provided would be very helpful in getting the information people would be looking for, without having to scour the wiki looking for them individually. Sandy Sagebrush (talk) 06:16, July 15, 2013 (UTC)

There's a few list designs and things that I currently have planned to list spells (as it recently got asked to me on fb/twitter). I can see how spells seem less apparent on the wiki as unlike creatures, they don't have a race page, so they cant be found as easily from the civilization pages.
Any spell can actually be seen by going onto Category:Spell just like any other card characteristic like type, civilization, power, level and such. I'll try a few things to have a better list of spells. Yami Michael 06:20, July 15, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I dunno, so far though, just saying 'it's in the category' section is rather a bit complicated and a little less user friendly. Any spell can be found there but it isn't A) completely alphabetically organized and B) though showing the colors of the cards, it doesn't group them together and thus allow people a easy to look at source, which is why I put up that listing in the first place. Couldn't we leave the listing until said changes take place, just to allow people an easier time to look up cards they may want to add to their current/future decks? Sandy Sagebrush (talk) 06:24, July 15, 2013 (UTC)
The problem is that as the card list continues to grow, a list of spells will become unwieldy and likely to miss cards (which you did), unless you use dpl. To put things in perspective, Kaijudo's predecessor Duel Masters has more than 600 Spells which is why they're not listed on its main page either. Chimera-gui (talk) 06:39, July 15, 2013 (UTC)
I had originally thought I could have pages for each civilization (which would also cover any multi-civ), but currently, I have this. As long as each set is checked for what cards are spells as each set passes, nothing should be missed. I could link to this ("List of Spells by set"?) page on the spell page. Yami Michael 06:45, July 15, 2013 (UTC)
I think that'll be ideal. A spell list would more than likely clutter the main page even divided by civilization in a dpl format. Chimera-gui (talk) 07:04, July 15, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah. I had a spell section on my DPL page, but I think the current lists I'm putting together look a lot nicer. Yami Michael 07:07, July 15, 2013 (UTC)

New member!

Hi, I just joined the wiki! :)Kaisenko (talk) 16:34, August 21, 2013 (UTC)

Welcome, my suggestion is to learn about links and especially interwiki links as that will everyone. Chimera-gui (talk) 17:31, August 21, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! :)Kaisenko (talk) 17:54, August 21, 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome you should also familiarize yourself with this template if you're going to to link to our sister wiki. Chimera-gui (talk) 18:41, August 21, 2013 (UTC)
Already did! :)Kaisenko (talk) 18:43, August 21, 2013 (UTC)
Then please start using them from now on. Chimera-gui (talk) 19:09, August 21, 2013 (UTC)
You may also want to familiarize yourself with our card templates. As most pages are cards. And you should learn to edit with rich text editing (if you haven't already) . But just remember to enjoy yourself! Ray422 (talk) 19:41, August 21, 2013 (UTC)Ray422

Meta description for the Rise(1TVR-6DSI) block.

Hi Yami! Now that i'm on the wiki can I start?Help you with adding descriptions of the meta to the page for the Rise block? Does the Rise block even have its own page yet?

Please remember to sign your posts using your tildes, like this ~~~~ when leaving a message on a talk page. Ray422 (talk) 19:51, August 21, 2013 (UTC)Ray422

I made pages for the Rise and Clash blocks yesterday. RapidsLurker15 (talk) 17:56, August 24, 2013 (UTC)
I will have to make some changes on it soon though. The page name for "Sets not in a block" sounds terrible, but I have an idea or too. Plus, the Clash block would be known as the "Meals" block. Yami Michael 18:21, August 24, 2013 (UTC)

Idea

You know how some pages have quotes? I want to have a template that randomly generates quotes based on the character in question. For example on Infernus' page, the quote will be either Infernus declaring war or the Choten summoning Infernus. Chimera-gui (talk) 17:32, August 24, 2013 (UTC)

Is there some template even like that does goes between random sets of quotes? I haven't seen a wiki use that before, or at least, never noticed. I guess its not outside the realm of possibility. Yami Michael 17:42, August 24, 2013 (UTC)
Not exact matches but I have seen templates similar to what I'm proposing. This is the closest match I've been able to find.
So what do you think of the idea? Chimera-gui (talk) 20:30, August 24, 2013 (UTC)
Seems like a good idea. It'll add more flavor to the pages with quotes. You should go for it. Ray422 (talk) 21:00, August 24, 2013 (UTC)Ray422
Right now I'm waiting for the green light from Michael as well as his assistance getting it up and running. Chimera-gui (talk) 22:11, August 24, 2013 (UTC)
If you can get to work cleanly, (it doesn't look bad code-wise on the pages using it) I'm fine with it. 03:23, August 25, 2013 (UTC)
I've opted for a switch with a timer, what do you think? Chimera-gui (talk) 15:51, August 25, 2013 (UTC)
How long is each quote gonna stay up. Ray422 (talk) 17:23, August 25, 2013 (UTC)Ray422

Project Darwin

Do you think Darwin will effect our wiki. I'm mostly worried about our card pages. Ray422 (talk) 15:08, August 27, 2013 (UTC)Ray422

What is this 'Project Darwin'? RapidsLurker15 (talk) 01:22, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
Darwin is a new type of thing that wikia is currently building. Darwin Ray422 (talk) 01:14, September 28, 2013 (UTC)Ray422
Darwin deals with backgrounds, layouts and Css. Some elements of it are already active. Chimera-gui (talk) 01:42, September 28, 2013 (UTC)

Image Issues

Blastforge Bruiser (7CLA).png is 0 B which I don't think is right and Borran, the Reality Shaper kept screwing up. Chimera-gui (talk) 22:45, September 2, 2013 (UTC)

I tried uploading multiple images of Borran the reality shaper. Yet the quality doesn't chnage --Ray422 (talk) 23:00, September 2, 2013 (UTC)Ray422.
Blastforge says 0B, but its 761.11 KB, and nothing is wrong with it. And I uploaded a Borran that is working. Had no issue with it. Yami Michael 02:17, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, ChaoticReaper uploaded an incorrectly formatted version of that image and got rather upset when I removed it forcing me to block him for a week. My apologies for this. Chimera-gui (talk) 02:34, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
To be fair, I've never really finished the guide to editing things, but I should go put better mention on the .png thing. Yami Michael 03:08, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
It wasn't just the wrong image type, there was a lack of proper capitalization, a lack of proper punctuation and it was missing the (9SHA) as well. Chimera-gui (talk) 04:03, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
Right, I saw that too. I added a bit in the cardtable template for that. Yami Michael 04:13, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
I saw that and I also saw "or when certain punctuation such as ! is needed", why did you add that? Chimera-gui (talk) 04:39, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
In case of later cards like the "Super Move!! BLAHBLAH" cards, as those !! dont appear in the cardtable properly without using "|name =". Will get to that when we come to it though, I removed that part. Yami Michael 06:25, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

Images

You may want to upload all the card images for the new cards revealed today. Chimera-gui (talk) 02:36, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

I will. Mass cropping is in my future. Yami Michael 02:40, September 5, 2013 (UTC)
Just to let you know, you accidentally uploaded a file called Death Liger the Justicar (9SHA).jpg Chimera-gui (talk) 02:51, September 5, 2013 (UTC)
That would explain why it came up when I edited it. RapidsLurker15 (talk) 03:04, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

Why does Finbarr’s Dreadnought get a special ’ when Skycrusher's Volcano-Ship gets '? Chimera-gui (talk) 06:07, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

The images were both given the '. I didn't write the set contents. Yami Michael 06:09, September 5, 2013 (UTC)
Do you want me to move Finbarr's Dreadnought.png so that it's using the correct punctuation? Chimera-gui (talk) 06:13, September 5, 2013 (UTC)
If you want. Doesn't change much for the character image. Yami Michael 06:14, September 5, 2013 (UTC)
But it will help keep things consistent. Chimera-gui (talk) 06:23, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

Template Help

I've updated the Infobox templates but I've noticed that sometimes text gets too close to them, mind helping me sort that out? Chimera-gui (talk) 16:11, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

Mystics

Hey what's the big idea?!

I was just trying to create a page for Mystics. Firebreather628 (talk) 04:01, September 10, 2013 (UTC)

Half a year ago, there was a page called Creature Kings. That page had to undergo massive revisions becoming the Monarch page we use now because no one knew how the Monarchs were going to work in the game and we knew more about the monarchs then than we do about the Mystics now.
I'd rather that we have a Mystic card to build on beforehand rather make a page only to find out that is not what they are called (and yes this has happened before along with remaking a deleted page when it is revealed that the race in question does in fact exist). Chimera-gui (talk) 05:07, September 10, 2013 (UTC)

Idea

What if the Choten, his forces, and the Corrupted creatures had a transparent circuit board running over the colors? Do you think such a thing would be possible and if so do you want to try it?

I tried asking the community wikia but got nowhere. Chimera-gui (talk) 03:02, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

Flametropus

I got a better image of enslaved flametropus. Just wondering if you nedded to crop it or anything. Ray422 (talk) 00:33, September 17, 2013 (UTC)Ray422

I believe the dimensions are 308x440. RapidsLurker15 (talk) 01:15, September 17, 2013 (UTC)
The first thing I came on this wiki to do today was to add that image after they put it on their facebook...and it said Chimera already uploaded it. We have the best image for it now. :) Yami Michael 03:14, September 17, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I downloaded it from facebook to get the maximum size and quality then uploaded that here. Chimera-gui (talk) 03:50, September 17, 2013 (UTC)
Im confused who added the picture first me or Chimera. Ray422 (talk) 20:38, September 17, 2013 (UTC)Ray422
It was most likely Chimera. RapidsLurker15 (talk) 20:42, September 17, 2013 (UTC)
Ray uploaded first but his was 480 x 670 since he copied it at the size displayed on Facebook while mine is 744 × 1,039 since I downloaded the image getting its actual size. Chimera-gui (talk) 21:55, September 17, 2013 (UTC)
Oh I get it. Chimera's was larger that's why I kinda got confused. --Ray422 (talk) 23:35, September 17, 2013 (UTC)Ray422

Creature

i know things you don't know shadow champion/ primal champion hybrid cards coming soon that's all Losthowler4712 (talk) 20:54, September 21, 2013 (UTC)losthowler4712

What the fuck are you talking about? Chimera-gui (talk) 23:17, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
Exactly same thing I said. What the hell are you talking about bro. What primal champions darkness champion? --Ray422 (talk) 23:39, September 21, 2013 (UTC)Ray422
Unless your Wizards of the Coast (you're not), its unlikely you know anything about Kaijudo/DM that I dont. /bragging-but-true Yami Michael 05:08, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
That's why we call him 'Poppa Pwn' RapidsLurker15 (talk) 06:22, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
More champions? Quite likely. Some sort of DN Shadow Champion/Primal Champion creature? Probably Possibly. Will it because you said it? Noooooope. Yami Michael 06:27, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Pwn'd. RapidsLurker15 (talk) 07:05, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Block

Would you block LostHowler. he's been deleting all the information from pages and I had to undo all of them. That asshole is bugging the shit out of me. Ray422 (talk) 22:28, September 22, 2013 (UTC)Ray422

Don't worry, I just did. Chimera-gui (talk) 22:36, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you so much. It's so annoying, just because people said some things to you doesn't mean go ahead and delete info from every single page. Hate it when people are like that. You should ban him for a year or an infinite one.--Ray422 (talk) 22:38, September 22, 2013 (UTC)Ray422
I just checked the block log, he's blocked for three months. Darkwisp15 was blocked for a year back in November of 2012. RapidsLurker15 (talk) 22:44, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
While I can't speak for Micheal, Darkwisp seems to be a known content thief hence his ban. Chimera-gui (talk) 23:23, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Darkwisp/GodofEarth (and any other accounts the same person uses) are completely banned. As Losthowler did the same content removal stuff on the DMwiki, hes blocked there too.
You might want to unblock Megazord, he was right to correct the quote from Heart of Darkness. Chimera-gui (talk) 07:27, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
Guess I shouldn't of been as hasty, but figured it was spam when that quote had been there so long. Yami Michael 08:00, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

Ability Templates

Would you mind if I created templates for abilities like Mana Infused or Spirit Swap that are on multiple creatures? RapidsLurker15 (talk) 22:30, October 22, 2013 (UTC)

I cant really see them having it more then a few times, or by the same name. They aren't keywords for Card Abilities. Just named abilities. Yami Michael 02:36, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

Thought

You know apart from some trouble I had with Swift Regeneration, which I fixed using the DM's Cardtable code, the tooltip tag you added works fairly well and I think we can use it for Card References and maybe even Card Representations if you're up for trying it. Chimera-gui (talk) 19:45, February 13, 2014 (UTC)

Ah yes. It didn't like having to use the back-up of the "back.png" image. I guess I didn't add that fix I figured out over on this wiki. I did want it for the Card Reps/References....but I don't think its possible. There's no real way to edit the way we get the DPL results. I did think about it and want it, but unless Ive overlooked something, I dont believe its possible.

I am quite happy with the tooltip code though.Yami Michael 19:50, February 13, 2014 (UTC)
We can always ask community if it's possible since I think tags were suggested when I was looking for a solution for those. Chimera-gui (talk) 19:58, February 13, 2014 (UTC)

Ifexist function

Just so you know, I've found a way to make it so that links to Set Galleries appear so long as said Galleries themselves exist. Chimera-gui (talk) 17:16, April 2, 2014 (UTC)

As soon as I read this I was like, "huh, how? Is there an ifexist or something?". And well, I guess so. I might even need to try it out on the cardtable. It would kill thousands of red links. Although it does make creating the subpages a bit slower...Hmm. Yami Michael 17:24, April 2, 2014 (UTC)
I found it looking at an Infobox on the Digimon wiki, it took a bit of tinkering but I managed to figure out how it works and applied it to a template on another wiki I administer at which point I decided to try it for the set/deck Infoboxes to make things easier. Chimera-gui (talk) 17:39, April 2, 2014 (UTC)
That's excellent, if we can get it on to the card tables it would be perfect. Great method. Ray422 (talk) 21:23, April 2, 2014 (UTC)
I've incorporated #ifexist into the Navigation template to cut down on the wanted pages for when you're ready to incorporate it into the card table itself. Chimera-gui (talk) 23:11, April 2, 2014 (UTC)
And I've already wrote and tested it on Cardtable2. So it works and will kill the links, and I even made it look normal by still having the words bold and appearing in the table (rather than an empty section). Just not sure how to have my cake and eat it too and be able to make the subpages as quick now. I guess I would be typing "/whatever" into the address bar from now on. Hmm. Yami Michael 04:32, April 3, 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately, it also gives a false positive for red links which messes up What Links Here & Wanted Pages. Sorry I thought this was a good idea. Chimera-gui (talk) 03:09, April 4, 2014 (UTC)
It removes the wanted pages, I didn't see it mess up anything with the navigation change. Which is good, but also has a negative side. For viewers of the wiki? Its great to see no red links. To editors of the card subpages? It makes things slower. So I'm not turning it on the cardtable yet, but I love that I have the option, at least. Yami Michael 04:22, April 4, 2014 (UTC)
It doesn't remove pages from S:WP which is what I wanted it for. This is a known bug that never got resolved. Chimera-gui (talk) 04:49, April 4, 2014 (UTC)
That is a little frustrating, yeah. It would make the card pages nicer to have red links, and would let us edit from wanted pages, but I can understand wanting to lessen the wanted pages link. Although I expect it to be the former, is it because you want the wanted pages to be 0 (which is what I want, although not all cards can have ruling/trivia or even decent tips)? Or just want to view the wanted pages properly without all those subpages in the way? (as they aren't that hard to exclude by using /Tips, /Trivia, /Rulings. In fact, we should do the 200 gallery pages that are needed...). Yami Michael 13:18, April 4, 2014 (UTC)
One benefit of having red links are it encourages users to create more pages.Ray422 (talk) 17:52, April 4, 2014 (UTC)

First Appearance

How would you feel if the creature/character-page templates listed each character's/creature's first appearance? Corrupted Deepest regards, RapidsLurker15 Corrupted

Seems a lot better in the plot section. Yami Michael 16:08, April 20, 2014 (UTC)

Flavor2/Card References

Good news, I was able to get the issue fixed thanks to Fandyllic. So now flavor 2 will appear on card reference lists as well.

Here is that thread in case you have questions. Chimera-gui (talk) 17:20, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

Gallery

Do we really need to make gallery's for cards that are featured in only one set and or premium cards? I don't see the point in creating a gallery with only one card in there. Ray422 (talk) 17:49, April 26, 2014 (UTC)

Mainly just to have less red links, honestly. That's the main benefit. Other card game wikis do it too, and saves a small amount of time later on if there are later previews.

I've kinda been lax with it, even though Wanted Pages is an easy way to find the missing ones.Yami Michael 02:35, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
I could help out, I do have copious time. Ray422 (talk) 19:25, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

Multi-Civ Categories

I've set it up so now the card table will add the dual civilization categories automatically.

That said, do you still want these categories anymore? What are we going to do if/when tri-civs come? Chimera-gui (talk) 07:37, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

The categories are nice now. No idea when tri comes though. Cant have it just ignore the previous civ2 thing. Some of the reason why I didnt try any of it on the DM wiki. Yami Michael 13:00, April 28, 2014 (UTC)
I've already set it up so that at three civs, it won't add the two civ categories. Currently at three civs, the template does nothing but you could modify it to add [[Category:{{{civ}}} {{{civ2}}} {{{civ3}}}]] it you want. Chimera-gui (talk) 17:38, April 28, 2014 (UTC)
So when 4 and 5 civ creature comes along. We can easily add them to the template. Ray422 (talk) 20:31, April 28, 2014 (UTC)
Seems like there should be no Drama then, and they work how we want in all cases. Good job.Yami Michael 06:09, April 29, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. Chimera-gui (talk) 18:18, April 29, 2014 (UTC)

Spoilers

I'm guessing we've finished of the spoilers. Ray422 (talk) 12:03, May 11, 2014 (UTC)

Unless some where missed. Now just artists or flavors/numbers.

Heads up on Images

Just to let you know, I going to be uploading the images so I ask that you not add image links for cards I haven't yet uploaded, thank you. Chimera-gui (talk) 02:29, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

Ok, then. I can only multi-task edits atm anyway, I'll be going over everything in like 3 hours time for artists/flavor/whatever. Yami Michael
And all images have been uploaded, so you can start going over everything. Chimera-gui (talk) 04:11, May 21, 2014 (UTC)
On it. Yami Michael 04:28, May 21, 2014 (UTC)
