Wiki Manager

Hi Yami Michael,

I thought I would reach out to you, since you are one of the administrators here. I have recently been appointed as the Fandom Wiki Manager for this wiki. I am here to assist this community in an official capacity and act as a liaison between you, and full-time Fandom staff. If you, or any other users of this wiki ever have an issue or question related to the wiki (editing, templates, wiki design, or any other matters), please feel free to contact me on my talk page, and I will assist in any way I can.

Nice to hear from you, and also to see you jump onto the discord too. — Shield Trigger Yami Michael Shield Trigger 10:56, May 19, 2019 (UTC)

Discussions

Hello again Yami Michael,

I noticed there are no forums or discussions area on this wiki, and I'm curious if this community has ever considered enabling the discussions feature. While the community Discord server is a great method of discussion, on other wikis I have noticed that also having an area for users to communicate that is integrated into the wiki can sometimes help boost traffic. The side-bars in the discussions/wiki feed suggest content on the wiki for users to visit, and users are only a few clicks away from taking the step from chatting to also editing. It is entirely up to you and the rest of the community of course, but if you'd like, I could enable this feature for the wiki. Let me know whether or not you're interested

Never seemed different from the blog/talk pages, other than a bit of presentation. Plus on most wikis (even like, community central) I've seen with the discussions enabled, it just seemed to be 90=95% spam, and bad image links. Seemed more drama than it was worth. — Shield Trigger Yami Michael Shield Trigger 05:32, June 1, 2019 (UTC)
Although looking at Special:WikiFeatures, how come Discussions isn't in there? Message Wall is. I'll consider the feature again, but after years of being in the community, I know the limits of the activity of this hobby in the English speaking side of it.— Shield Trigger Yami Michael Shield Trigger 05:33, June 1, 2019 (UTC)
Discussions can be enabled by request, but not by simply flipping a switch (it requires Fandom re-organize some of the back-end stuff). Blog/Talk Pages would still remain, as they are a separate feature where users communicate on a more personal level. Discussions are designed more for the overall wiki community, as a place where the general userbase can easily notice, and contribute to new discussion topics, vote in polls, make community announcements/talk about game-related news etc.

Broken template

The

{{Navigation}}

template is broken on */_Kobitro,_Nigen_/*/Tips. I suspect that the " /*/Tips " part of the page name is responsible for breaking the template. Type8 (talk) 12:41, July 3, 2019 (UTC)

Fixed. Yeah. The wiki doesn't like the cards that have the slash and asterisks. >_< So I needed NavigationN (for a specific name). And why Twinpacts need T. — Shield Trigger Yami Michael Shield Trigger 12:42, July 3, 2019 (UTC)

Need "Delete" privileges

Hey Michael!

Would you be so kind as to grant me the privilege of deleting pages?
It's not explicitly needed, but I like to delete pages instead of just leaving them blank.

Type8 (talk) 12:29, August 14, 2019 (UTC)

Be careful with it (Blah blah...)...but I trust you with it, so there you go. You have the Content Moderator rank now so you should be able to. — Shield Trigger Yami Michael Shield Trigger 13:22, August 14, 2019 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! Type8 (talk) 15:29, August 14, 2019 (UTC)

DMSD-13

Hello, Yami Michael. I'm Lee Sang Hun. I just had a question. DMSD-13 will be released on September 14th. When does the page will be made? Lee Sang Hun (talk) 03:23, September 13, 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your edit. However, there was a one mistake. Zekkyosuraidai is actually pronounced as suraida. 太 is だ. So, could you fix a little mistake? It would be thank you. Lee Sang Hun (talk) 11:12, September 14, 2019 (UTC)
I started the DMSD-13 page, but didn't do most of the cards. I fixed this (and a few small things) up though. — Shield Trigger Yami Michael Shield Trigger 11:38, September 14, 2019 (UTC)

Actual card scans?

After the recent deletion of high quality card scan pics. i saw in your 2019 guide to editig this wiki. In which you have stated that only card pictures from official takara tommy will be allowed. Does that mean no one in this community will be able to see actual representations of the cards. 

If so why? is there any legal reasons? or the actual card scans will only be updated by the moderator on a later date.

Saad safa 21:56, October 11, 2019 (UTC)

Every single one of those recent scans that you uploaded were a lower quality in both file size and resolution than the official ones from the cardlist that they already had. The official ones are cropped perfectly, aren't at a weird rotation, don't have glare for holographic cards, and as already mentioned, at a nicer quality in terms of resolution.

Original images used were from gathe.jp while that was a thing, as it was the best option available with proper size images. Many years later I was able to remove those images (they had bad blue corners on every card due to how they scanned them) and replace them with the images from ka-nabell.com. But theres still various issues (angles or colors). Now theres officialimages that are given on Corocoro.jp when they preview or the card page when the set is out, so that's what we are using from now on.

I would have swapped everything over to it already, but any year of promos not Y18 is terrible. And most other sets are fine with ka-nabell. — Yami Michael 02:09, October 12, 2019 (UTC)..

  • Thanx for explanation. but if that is the case then no one in the community will get to see or improve actual card represtations. There are other sites that may have better pics which mught be up to or better then (NOT ACTUAL CARD REPRESETATIONS A.K.A DIGITAL PICS). Offcourse digital will always looks best i agree, but they are not how the actual cards looks like.
  • Well i won't bother trying my best to find better card scans because they are no longer acceptable. but i think the community should be given a poll with examples of both types of pictures on this matter and let them decide on which pictures should be shown on the wiki.Saad safa 21:10, October 12, 2019 (UTC)
