As of now, there are still no changes in the card status shown in card infoboxes, and TCG might update its Forbidden/Limited list again. Cards that are Forbidden in TCG Advanced are always Limited in TCG Traditional without ever having an exception. Cards that are Forbidden in TCG Advanced therefore are given a third card status, namely being Limited in TCG Traditional. This makes it more difficult to read the current card status, especially regarding that TCG Traditional is rarely played in even Regional-level official tournaments.

As of now, cards that are released but completely forbidden (that means, Forbidden in both formats) will simply show Forbidden as its card status, rather than Forbidden (OCG), Forbidden (TCG Advanced), and Limited (TCG Traditional). Cards that are released at least in the OCG and have the same status across both OCG and TCG simply display its status without any notes.

For all other statuses, cards that are released both in OCG and TCG and have the same status simply display their status without notes. If a card is only released in either OCG or TCG, only one status will show, but it will be annotated depending on where it is released.

Here are some sample scenarios:

Completely
Forbidden
3Limited (OCG) 4Forbidden
4Forbidden (TCG Advanced)
3Limited (TCG Traditional)
OCG Limited
TCG Forbidden
3Limited 3Limited (OCG)
4Forbidden (TCG Advanced) 4Forbidden (TCG Advanced)
3Limited (TCG Traditional)
OCG-exclusive
Forbidden
4Forbidden 4Forbidden (OCG)
TCG-exclusive
Forbidden
4Forbidden (TCG Advanced) 4Forbidden (TCG Advanced)
3Limited (TCG Traditional)

I have previously posted this complaint ten months ago: I only got one reply stating that the template is being restructured bit by bit. Since it is recently past April (earliest time where TCG might get another Forbidden/Limited List update), when will the Limited (TCG Traditional) status be removed?

Furthermore, I am recently programming a Python program that can create new Historic_Forbidden/Limited_Chart tables using a Python script. As of now, I haven't fully documented and optimized this code though it does run decently well (around 1 second runtime). I already have the partial results for OCG and TCG tables from 2013 onwards, where the two lists are no longer similar or analogous, but it does not include the errata, late additions, and currently the green indicator is only green if the card has been on the banlist before. If a card was never on the list at that time, it is color coded as Not Yet Released. This is something for to be discussed later, and it is expected that I can complete it by this weekend (May 5th).
